Track Name: Left Out
I have done all I can
to try to belong
but you shut me out
And I try and I try
but nothing will do
I'm always left out

I don't want to wake up,
I know I'll endure
your abuse
And I'm sure someday
I won't be able to hold
the monster within

I hide away on my world
where everything's safe
I hide away on my own fantasy
and you'll never get me there
Track Name: Before my Eyes
Instrumental featuring themes that appear all throughout The Veil Is Broken.
Track Name: Back to the Promised Land
Careful John,
the piramid's falling
and we have 5 minutes to escape

the old man is coming to get us
'cause the mouse has burned his house down

Chorus:
Far away, on our promised land
demons wait to greet us
they want to drink from the cup
that a dream let us find

Come on, John
the show is about to start
and the blue sheep is
already here
If it goes ok
there may be a tour
and you'll see the countries you wanted

Chorus

Hurry John,
the match has just begun
the machine is being built around us
if we go on like this
we'll get to Japan
and eternal glory will be ours

Chorus
Track Name: Superstar
I want to be a super star
I want to be a super star
And everybody will know my name
everybody will know my name

I want to be a millionaire
I want to be a millionaire
They'll take me round in a limousine
everybody will know my name


Everybody will be my friend
I'll show them all I can do
A Palace will be my home
and all the girls will want me too

I want to be a super star
I want to be a super star
And everybody will know my name
everybody will know my name

Everybody will be my friend
I'll show them all I can do
A Palace will be my home
and all the girls will want me too
Track Name: Epica
The news have come
that the queen has died
all the kingdom grieves
but you can hear the whispers
of traitors
against our king

The Usurper hasnow made his fateful move
and bloodshed has ocurred
but our king has fled the country
to live in exile

Now his name is banned from our tongues
but we know that one day he'll return

Now his name is banned
but we know that one day he'll return

I will fight
for my king
I'll bring him back
I would die for freedom

The Resistance has formed
and we won't give up
The Usurper we'll destroy
'cause we fight for freedom

The Resistance has won
and the time has come
we will make him come back
to reign again


All hail the king he has returned
with his new queen
he shall reign again
but he ignores the ones that fought for him

The king is dead
long live the queen
but we all know
The Wizard pulls the strings
and he set his knights against the ones
that fought for him
