THE POWER WITHIN
Words / Music: S. Marshall / T. Grose

Look within for a place deep inside me
Where I can believe
Seek the truth my own master, my own king
Where my spirit is free

Seeking gold and the treasure external
Fight within for the chance to grow
See the real man within, he's eternal
Deep inside we all know

We all search for the mysteries of Eden
I now know what's inside - there's no turning back...

CHORUS:
Every man has a kingdom inside him
Will he ever see
What is here in the now is the reason
Find the path for his soul to be free
Deep inside is the key...

Pushing on with the strength of conviction
Now within there's a fire inside
Find the answer without contradiction
My soul free to fly

If we look to the power within us
Look inside, there is no turning back...

REPEAT CHORUS

SOLO: Stu / Tim

AGAINST THE WIND
Words / Music: T. Grose

A bad place, a dark space
The lines that weather my face
I stand alone before the storm

Walk with me and you'll see
The flame that burns within me
A fire so cold to keep us so warm

You see the darkness in my eyes
The seed of life inside me dies
A search for the truth, to find a reason why
A voice cries out in pain in the night...

CHORUS:
Riding the storm wind
And facing the demons inside
A thousand sins behind my eyes
A cry from the blackness
Alone with the darkness inside
Forever will I walk against the wind...

No rhyme and no reason
My world betrayed by treason
I stumble blind, what's going on?

Can't see the road that lies beyond
A need to feel where I belong
When everywhere I turn seems to guide me wrong
Running through the night for so long...

REPEAT CHORUS

SOLO: Tim / Stu

THE ART OF WAR
Words / Music: S. Marshall / T. Grose

Young man he walks alone
The power unto his own
The ancient arts under command

Stand fast, don't run away
What was learned is now to betray

I'll fight you, I'll kill you
You've nowhere left to run
Your life within my power
Immortal forever

The boy is now a man
His family honour now betrayed
His vengeance burning deep within

Stand fast, won't run away
What was learned is now to betray

I'll fight you, I'll kill you
You've nowhere left to run
Your life within my power
Immortal forever

CHORUS:
It was developed in the art of war
My blood and spirit made of iron fury

Through blood and battle scarred
The warrior now foretold
His spirit rises to the sky

More than a mortal man
Crush all that dare to face me

I'll fight you, I'll kill you
You've nowhere left to run
Your life within my power
Immortal forever

REPEAT CHORUS

SOLO: Tim / Stu / Stu

Passed on unto the son
The power of the fallen one
The ancient arts reborn forever

Stand fast, don't run away
The art of war shall rise again

I'll fight you, I'll kill you
You've nowhere left to run
Your life within my power
Immortal forever

REPEAT CHORUS

THE HUNGER
Words: T. GroseMusic: T. Grose / S. Marshall

Eyes of a child
Watch as the world goes by
Yet to be torn away
From innocent times

As time goes by
We're soon taught to realise
Our dreams are but dust in the wind
And innocence dies

Over and over
We're thrown to the ground
But over and over
We're clawing our way back to daylight again

CHORUS 1:
Remember the hunger that burns inside
Remember the fire within
Take hold of your dreams with both hands
And don't let go again...

Sand through our hands
Time seems to slip away
Harder to keep the faith
And face a new day

Over and over
We fall to our knees
But over and over
We know in our hearts that we'll climb to our feet

CHORUS 2:
Remember the hunger that burns inside (hunger burns like)
Remember the fire within (fire within)
Take hold of your dreams with both hands (hold your dreams and)
And don't let go (don't let go)
Search for the strength that beats in your heart (strength inside your)
And search for the hunger inside (heart and hunger)
Remember the dreams of a child (dreams within a child)
And oh, don't let go again... (don't let go)

ALL SOLOS: Tim

Over and over
We're thrown to the ground
But over and over
We know in our hearts that these dreams never end

REPEAT CHORUS 2

SURFACE TENSION
Words / Music: T. Grose

Oh, we all live by the lie
As children we comply
Dark feelings we deny

You see it in my eyes
And feel the anger rise
From deep inside

CHORUS:
Beneath the surface tension
The waves start to break
And face the truth that lies within
You're screaming...

Anger builds inside of me
See the world as it should be
Lived a life of agony
Breaking point, we can't control the rage...

Oh, we face another day
And try hard to restrain
The fire beneath our skin

Resign yourself to fate
Release yourself from pain
Before it's too late

REPEAT CHORUS

Day after day, year after year
Not a thing changes in my mundane life
Every morning I tighten the noose around my neck
And try to fit in with society
Face after face, line after line
It's an endless stream of morons
One day I'll make them pay
One day soon I feel I'm just about to BREAK!

SOLO: Stu / Tim

REPEAT CHORUS

TARRANNO DEL MAR
Words: S. MarshallMusic: S. Marshall / T. Grose

I, King of the sea
A galleon ship, the waves of torment and destiny
A thousand winds bear our gust, my eyes are blinded by hate
With the hammer of war and evil onboard
At the edge of hell we await

A pauper's son, a god reborn
My name is death's last kiss
The iron cross of Usthanates
From the secrets of the deep

CHORUS:
There's an evil force inside of me
Will it end, I do not know
Unholy force that lives inside my dreams
To the gates of hell we roar
Down below...

Blood and battle-scarred, the sea my domain
None shall pass the Maybelle alive
Victims forty score, my sails filled from hell
Victims of the seven seas...

REPEAT CHORUS

SOLO: (sweeps) Stu / Both / Tim / Both

ONE STEP BEYOND
Words / Music: T. Grose

Walked the world today
Passed the lines of clouded eyes
Go to church and pray
Social farce, no God inside

Open your eyes
You'll realise
In this sea of senseless lies
You live your life...

Politicians say
All the 'truths' we need to hear
Blindly following
Is it faith or is it fear?

Open your mind
Soon you'll find
In a world of compromise
You see the light...

CHORUS:
I've gone...

One step beyond the truth
One step beyond the lie
One step beyond the pain
One step beyond...
I see a new day's morning
Arise to face the dawn

One step beyond the dark
One step beyond the light
One step beyond the fear
One step beyond...
I see a new day dawning
We rise to heed the warning call...

SOLO: All solos by Tim

Open your eyes
You'll realise
In this sea of senseless lies
You live your life...

REPEAT CHORUS

UNDER THE CROSS
Words: T. GroseMusic: T. Grose / S. Marshall

A quest for a wealth untold
Reaping the fields of gold
A chance to live as a king for every man

Corruption within the state
Political disarray
No freedom or justice for all in the land

Oh... Our rights denied
Oh... Prepare now to fight
So, we swear allegiance, a rebellion to come
A new flag is raised toward the sun...

CHORUS:
As we stand below the Southern Cross
Brothers united as one
Stand together - a united force
We will all overcome...

Renewed by the strength within
The oath sworn the wait begins
In grim resolve for what lies ahead

At dawn a surprise attack
Authorities striking back
The fields of gold now stained with seas of red

Oh... Our people may die
No... They can't take our pride
Oh, we swore allegiance, a rebellion was won
A new flag still raised toward the sun...

REPEAT CHORUS

Though we fought with our honour and pride
We're outnumbered a hundred to one
Defeated, but history showed
We have truly won..

SOLO: Tim / Stu

WE SWEAR BY THE SOUTHERN CROSS
TO STAND TRULY BY EACH OTHER,
AND FIGHT TO DEFEND
OUR RIGHTS AND LIBERTIES.

REPEAT CHORUS x2
