Track Name: The Veil is Broken
"Now it's time to fight for your country"
the King, as he sipped his cup
And we felt a patriotic fervor
"we will fight, it is our right"

and the country suddenly found itself
finally united

and we sailed and took the islands
"now you're free, free from the opression"

but we were much too young or blind to see
what was going on

Soon they came and we fought and the veil was broken
we were young, we were children and they us apart
but how could we lose? how could we die? how could this happen to us?
and we clearly saw what was going on

and the country suddenly found itself
face to face with the truth

Soon they came and we fought and the veil was broken
we were young, we were children and they us apart
Soon they came and we fought and the veil was broken
we were young, we were children and they us apart

and now I see
after all this years
we were merely pawns
a drunk man grasping at straws

Please, no more
Please, no more

I'll never be
able to move on
from John's loss
he was my anchor

Now I drift
forever
In my mind
I am lost

Soon they came and we fought and the veil was broken
we were young, we were children and they us apart
but how could we lose? how could we die? how could this happen to us?
and we clearly saw what was going on
Track Name: My Time is Gone
I have fought for a thousand years
and now it's time to rest
it is time to admit
what I really want

It's time to give in
the quest to make you think
is pointless
but I will make you feel

I fought all I could
I tried to repress
I gave all I had
but now my time is gone

I was killed by a little girl
while playing in the yard
now my spirit's in a music box
she plays me for the crowds

It's time to give in
to finally sell my soul
to the machine
and complete my fate

I crawled in the carpet
I followed the blind one
I tried to find John
but he's time is gone

Can't you see I have fooled you all?
I'm not what I seem
it's a spoonfull of a miracle,
come on child, take my hand

It's time to give in
the quest to make you think
is pointless
but I will make you feel

I rode the scree
I jumped in the rapids
I tried to find John
but he's time is gone

I crawled in the carpet
I followed the blind one
I tried to find John
but he's time is gone

and now my time is gone
Track Name: The Time Has Come
It's time to realize
there is nothing you can do
It's time to realize you're not gonna make it through
You better stop waisting your time
Don't be so naive, stop waisting your life

The Time has Come
and there isnothing I can do or say
The time has come
I am banished from the earth
The Time has Come
and there isnothing I can do or say
The time has come
I am banished from the earth

You think you're special
but you're not the only one
You think you're special
but, in fact, you cannot shine
You better stop waisting your time
Don't be so naive, stop waisting your life


The Time has Come
and there isnothing I can do or say
The time has come
I am banished from the earth
The Time has Come
and there isnothing I can do or say
The time has come
I am banished from the earth
Track Name: Sellout!
There is no easy way to say this
so I'll just take it off my chest:
I don't really see the point
of staying with you
We're over now,
you'll hold me back no more

Goodbye
though it is more than you deserve
Goodbye
I am too much for you

Admit it, you knew it was coming
we always wanted really different things
You never could live up
to my expectations
It's over now,
you'll hold me back no more

Goodbye
I can't be the only one
Goodbye
that cares for us

Chorus:
You'll never know this is not what I wanted
I gave my everything to make it work
but it seems I was the only one who cared
It will be better this way

I guess you are probably happy
you never had the guts to stand up
and say what you really meant
so it's probably a relief
you are not the one that has to bring this up

Goodbye
I won't waste a second on you
Goodbye
you're not worth my time

Chorus:
You'll never know this is not what I wanted
I gave my everything to make it work
but it seems I was the only one who cared
It will be better this way

Now once again
I'm by myself
I guess I'm damned
to loneliness

Chorus:
You'll never know this is not what I wanted
I gave my everything to make it work
but it seems I was the only one who cared
It will be better this way
Track Name: Absolutely No Commercial Potential
Absolutely no commercial potencial
that it's what they always say


Absolutely no commercial potencial
that it's what they always say

Yeah

We have always dreamed that
we would save the world
open their eyes with our music

Like our Gods before us
we'd follow their footsteps
lead a new Renaissance

Yeah



Sign this and you'll be a star
forget your tribulations
Admit that fame was
all you always wanted

I will give you my soul
my hopes, my dreams, my future
'cause you're right
it's what I always wanted

What else can I do now that you are gone?
What else can I do now I'm left alone?

You'll be bigger than Jesus Christ
all the girls will adore you
All you have to do
is sing the songs we give you

What else can I do now that you are gone?
What else can I do now I'm left alone?

I will play and beat them
at their own game
when I'm big enough they'll see
I'll follow the rules
as long as it suits me
when I'm big enough they'll see


All my life I've been dreaming about this
the time has come

what would you think of what I have become?
have I lost my purpose?

How I wish you were here with me
the world is ours

All my dreams will finally be fulfilled
I will change the world

Have I lost my way and will I be able
to return to my path?


I have played their game
to find there's no way out
like a rat inside a maze

I have tried to find my way
with no success
nothing of me remains

I have sold my soul
my hopes, my dreams,my future
and they got my mind as well

Now I'm lost inside this maze
but the worst part is
that I don't even care


I have always dreamed that
I would save the world
open their eyes with my music

Like my Gods before us
I followed their footsteps
sold my soul to the machine
