A RISE TO POWER
Words: T. GroseMusic: T. Grose / S. Moore

I've walked through the lonely places
I've seen years of hurt in their eyes
And passing the empty faces
The story told so many times

Now it's time to fight
Together we unite - Tonight, we shall arise!

Their spirit lay crushed before them
All hope gone before it began
A new cause, behold the savior
The chosen, a leader of men

Now it's time to fight
Together we unite
From out of the darkness and leading us on in...

CHORUS 1:
A rise to power, the world is in our hands
Marching on, we fight as one
A rise to power, we spread throughout the lands
Cast aside the fallen ones
The armies of the light, we shall arise!

SOLO: Stu

I am the chosen one
The hand of God upon the world
Oppose my word and you'll all be destroyed

As time marches on eternal
Growing in strength, my word is feared
Don't pray to your gods - you now pray to me!

Heed my words and save your soul...

SOLO: Tim
HARMONY

CHORUS 2:
A rise to power, the world is in my hands
A sign from God, I'm the the chosen one
A rise to power, we spread throughout the lands
Cast aside the fallen ones
The armies show my might, we shall arise!

Marching on and on, to my eyes I do no wrong
Blinded to the truth - I'm just a man
Believing my own words, distort the world with lies
Into madness I descend - forevermore...

SOLO: Tim / Stu
HARMONY

CHORUS 3:
A rise to power, the world was in my hands
Cast aside - the fallen one
The final hour - into madness I descend
A final curse, though tonight I burn
My spirit will survive, I shall arise!

NETHERLIFE (Black Roses Die)
Words: T. GroseMusic: T. Grose / S. Moore

SOLO: Tim

A shadow falls upon the night
A freezing cold and fear - my herald call

A noble man once long ago
Now evil burns within my soul
The power is mine, no one I fear
When life or death is my command
I'd trade it all to turn back time...

I was once a mortal man
Saw jealousy arise - my pride and fall

I do not live, I cannot die
I'm cursed to walk these streets alone
Eternal life but not alive
The Banshees cry my tragic tale
Every morning with the dawn...

CHORUS:
Blackened heart, blackened soul, netherlife
All I am, all I feel, all I see
Black roses die...

SOLO: Tim / Stu

From the night I betrayed my world
And myself
I still feel the flames

    Burned - scarred

What is left of me? What remains?

    Cursed - scorned

My foolish pride!
Eternal life, eternal death - I paid the price...

SOLO: Stu / Tim / Tim

REPEAT CHORUS

INSANITY'S FALL
Words: D. Corney / T. GroseMusic: D. Corney / T. Grose / S. Moore

United we stand
All intention is clear
Enraged by injustice
No longer blinded by fear

BRIDGE 1:
Young blood within us
Tired of wasting time
We will crush you - all! (DIE!)

Never doubting
Always in control
Believing in something
We've never known at all

BRIDGE 2:
Young blood within us
Strength born of fire
We will rise up - high!

CHORUS:
Insanity's fall - divided and torn
In glory or death we will rise
Fire in our eyes, in cold frost of night
Our guide into darkness will die...

Hardened by anger
Our salvation draws near
My heart, my soul
My life - my own

BRIDGE 3:
Too late - I know
I see the forces rising
Before the lines I pray
The future will be...

REPEAT CHORUS

SOLO: Tim / Tim / Dale Corney

THE OTHER SIDE
Words: T. GroseMusic: T. Grose / B. McDonald / S. Moore

SOLO: Tim

Making the play, the future is mine
Seizing the day, walking the line
Here I stand, just a man with his life in his hands
With tooth and nail and hand over fist I climb on and on...

PRE-CHORUS 1:
A dream of a life far from here
I know one day I'll find...

CHORUS:
A better way
A brighter day
The perfect life
Is on the other side

A chance for me
To live the dream
The grass is green
On the other side...

Reaching the top and I wonder, is this all there is?
All those years that I walked the line
Played the role, took it's toll on this goldfish bowl I call life
From every direction a voice - don't know which way to turn...

PRE-CHORUS 2:
I search for a life far from here
The one I left behind...

REPEAT CHORUS

SOLOs: Tim

BRIDGE:
Another headline, another fallen star
Are we better off where we are?

REPEAT CHORUS x2

STORMCHASER
Words: T. GroseMusic: T. Grose / S. Moore

Oh - Thunder roars, the sky above is black
Lightning cracks the sky
Oh - Horizontal rain that drives us back
But still we've got to try...

CHORUS:
Stormchaser (x4)

Oh - Electronic sensors watch the sky
Chaos all around
Oh - Fujita scale left somewhere far behind
We face a monster on the ground...

REPEAT CHORUS

HARMONY
SOLO: Tim

REPEAT CHORUS x2

WHERE MADNESS HIDES
Words: D. Corney / T. GroseMusic: T. Grose / D. Corney / S. Moore

I've heard about the secret voices
Claiming to be heard
Their souls were lost in madness
Never to return

Reaching out from within the circle
Dictating all our lives
No feelings felt, all questions answered
Too easy we deny

PRE-CHORUS:
Can't leave this realm behind
Or all I am inside me dies
Defending the innocents' every life...

CHORUS 1:
Lost - in this nightmare, a world full of fear
Where madness hides
Lost - in the shadows when darkness falls
I'm lost inside my mind...

Sunrise holds no guarantees
Foreclosure or relief
The system failed, the silence broken
Crushed beyond belief

REPEAT PRE-CHORUS

CHORUS 2:
Lost - in this nightmare, a world full of fear
Where madness hides
Lost - in the shadows when darkness falls
Inside my mind

Blind - in the twilight that comes for us all
In the dead of night
Lost - when there's nowhere left to run
I'm lost inside my mind...

HARMONY
SOLO: Tim / Dale Corney / Tim

BRIDGE:
Is this real or is this a dream?
Can't leave this world behind me now
Again I pray for the dawn...

REPEAT CHORUS 2

LOST IN THE LIGHT
Words: T. GroseMusic: T. Grose / B. McDonald / S. Moore

HARMONY

A plastic life inside a plastic world
No longer feel the fire
So sanitised, integrity's demise
It's evil in disguise...

We blindly trust our guiding light
Following misguided dreams
What have we done? We've gone too far...

Unwise to the world, we're told what to see
Force-fed a life so sugary sweet
Never questioning the world around us
Never dared to look inside...

CHORUS:
We are lost in the light
Inner darkness that betrays the night
Is this the world we wanted?
Somehow we've lost our way...
    We've lost our way...

SOLOs: Tim

(SPOKEN OVER SOLO)
Censored thoughts, so far removed from life
Everything we see on TV, the music we hear, the games we play
Twisted and diluted to "protect us"
Is it any wonder our children are looking elsewhere for the truth?
Feeling the anger rise when they learn it's all been lies...

SOLO: Dakk / Tim
HARMONY

Deprived of the truth, we're told what to feel
Accepting their words, a world beyond real
What once began with the best intentions
Somehow ended up as lies...

REPEAT CHORUS

THE BIRTH: THE TRAUMA BEGINS
Dialog: S. Moore

(Introduction to Traumatised)

[Back to the top]


TRAUMATISED
Words / Music: S. Moore / T. Grose

HARMONY

I can't believe what I can see
A human? An alien? Something in between?
Strapped down screams, a white room red
Ripping flesh, her final breath

Chaos, fear, transfixed in place
Emerging form now taking shape
Trapped inside this deadly space
Death is here...

Is this a force of nature?
Can I relate to it for...

I need your mind to guide me
I need your strength inside me
How could I be so blind?

Fear is sending me blind
I can't breathe inside
An infant's mind but so much more
Is reaching out to all

Horror, hatred, deep in shock
All thoughts are known to me
Can't comprehend what I've done wrong
Death I fear...

This is no force of nature
I can relate to it for...

I want your mind to guide me
I want your strength inside me
How can fear be kind?

SOLOs: Tim
HARMONY
SOLO: Tim

BRIDGE:
Join with me and you will see the key to human destiny
Release the pain and suffering, transforming bland society
Evolving form, evolving mind, I'll show you what you're meant to be
Beyond the realm of stagnant life, I offer you infinity!

Dripping blood the only sound
Silent stares from all around
Rising up the creature smiles
Its purpose realised

Reach within unknowing minds
Steal knowledge, strength, all life it finds
The final human chapter told
Now death is here!

There is contempt of nature
There's no relation here, 'cos...

I have your mind to guide me
And I have your strength inside me
Traumatised...

I have your minds inside me
Leaving human life behind me
You're traumatised....
