PARIAH
Words: T. Grose     Music: T. Grose / T. Yatras

Cast from the social circle
Scorned upper echelon
Cursed and betrayed, condemed to walk alone

Denied of social justice
Saw freedom was a crime
Belie respect so watch us walk away

One step beyond the mainstream
Discover who we are
And compromise their perfect world so small

Instictive sense of freedom
Destroy their comfort zone
A victim of the times we'll never be

PRE-CHORUS:
If you see through our eyes
At a world full of lies
Born to be free
And forever we'll be

Pariah...

Tear down archaic values
Forge future paths of steel
Deny their mediocre way of life

False strength that's born of numbers
No match for strength within
Integrity shall savour victory

REPEAT PRE-CHORUS

Pariah...

CHORUS:
Acceptance is unknown
Condemed to walk alone
Outcast and untouchable
Forever free to roam
Pariah...

SOLOs: LT

REPEAT CHORUS x2

Pariah...

BETTER MAN
Words: T. GroseMusic: T. Grose / T. Yatras

Deceiver - ill will you deny
Betrayer of trust you defile
False logic, the truth you defy

Of heart icy cold, turned to black
Razor-wire words of attack
With thrust of the blade to my back

PRE-CHORUS 1:
And watching your fables unfold
In time truth be told

CHORUS:
I will always be the better man
I will always be the best man that I can
So come on twist the knife, my friend
But I'll still be here at the end
And soon you'll see you've lost it all...

So now, tansparent - I see through your lies
Facade torn, betrayed, no surprise
Remaining respect cast aside

As plain as the day now it's clear
Playing the game, insincere
Caught up in your own web of tears

PRE-CHORUS 2:
And watch as your crocodile smile
Is betrayed by your eyes

SOLO: Mav Stevens

CURSE OF THE PHARAOHS
Words: T. GroseMusic: T. Grose / T. Yatras

In the northern lands of Thebes
Under a heartless sun
Three hundred lifetimes ago

Here it lay, the Pharaoh's kingdom
Horizon of the Aten
So lived a child who would be king

PRE-CHORUS 1:
And so he lived and so he died
A tomb than no man shall defile
Forever lost are the fools who dare defy

CHORUS:
(The curse of the Pharaohs)
Inside the Pharaohs tomb the wealth of ages
A curse befallen those who seek the king
(The curse of the Pharaohs)
The lights of Cairo died with those who gave their lives
To the shifting sands of time

Came a man in search of glory
In the Valley Of The Kings
Unlocked a curse that doomed them all

PRE-CHORUS 2:
And so he lived and so he died
And all who conspired paid the price
Death will come swiftly to those who dared defy

FIRE OF TIME
Words: T. GroseMusic: T. Grose / T. Yatras

In a wasteland
In a world led astray
Left high and dry
And a million miles from home

Our inception
So far away
But tomorrow lies
Along this lonely road

PRE-CHORUS 1:
And with a new day dawning
Searching for our guiding light
We shed our skin and just keep walking
And ride until the night

CHORUS:
And we journey on and on
Wheels turning, we've only just begun
In time's fire we burn
As the candle dies, our future lies beyond
On and on...

In this story
We re-write book of life
The pages turn
And time just slips away

On our journey
Transcend amorphous lands
We've come so far
Yet so much more to go

PRE-CHORUS 2:
And as we reach for glory
Old chapters fade away
So turn the page and tell the story
And live another day

REPEAT CHORUS

SOLO: LT

REPEAT CHORUS x 2

GALLIPOLI
Words: T. GroseMusic: T. Grose / T. Yatras

So southern sons
Swallow propganda
And set sail to leave our shores
So far away, a distant war

No voice to say
No word opposed
The orders handed down from feckless hands
All condemed to die in foreign lands

PRE-CHORUS:
Eight thousand men to lose their lives
Honour 'til death, the ANZAC pride

CHORUS:
Orders taught, we storm the Dardenelles
A futile task, all men condemed to hell
A legend born there as our children fell
ANZACS stand taller than all

Nowhere to hide
The raining fire of guns
Now turn the sapphire waters red
Survivors few and far between the dead

So the time has come
To scale the walls
And run the deadly gauntlet - No Man's Land
The time to stand or fall is now at hand

REPEAT PRE-CHORUS

LIFE IS A LIE
Words: T. GroseMusic: T. Grose / T. Yatras

There's an empty feeling deep inside
Forever yearning, never seem to find a way
And sometiemes I need to run and hide
And leave the darkness cast astray

PRE-CHORUS 1:
Try to tell myself I'm still holding on
To all the dreams inside, though they never seemed quite real
Now pain has clouded distant memories
Salted wounds that just won't heal

CHORUS:
Life is a lie - everything I thought I knew is gone
Hard to face another day
Life is a lie - all I ever wanted was the truth...

And in knowledge some may find their peace
But sometimes wisdom can turn upon its own
Find a truth that some should never see
A fool's reward, and better left unknown

PRE-CHORUS 2:
Tried to tell myself I'm still holding on
To all the dreams despite I know they're just not real
Nothing left for me but memories
Nothing left for me to feel

REPEAT CHORUS

SOLO: LT

REPEAT PRE-CHORUS 2

REPEAT CHORUS

Life is a lie...

STEELHEART
Words: T. GroseMusic: T. Grose / T. Yatras

Turning our back on society's treason
Kicked in the face, your rules - we don't need 'em

We do what we want
And say what we like
Never held back
Remain unchained... UNCHAINED!

PRE-CHORUS:
Think you're taking us down?
Well, I've got something to say

CHORUS:
Won't beg and we won't break
Your way we'll never take
We're the masters of our fate
We were born with a steelheart

You follow the blind, don't question the reason
Open your mind - it will lead to your freedom

We'll be what we want
And say what we please
Never held back
Forever we're unchained... UNCHAINED!

REPEAT PRE-CHORUS

THE FINAL CHAPTER
Words: T. GroseMusic: T. Grose / T. Yatras/ S. Marshall

Born in a barren desert
Walked on the burning sands
Said don't look back and so we ran

And as our moods were changing
Journey to distant lands
The demolition time began

PRE-CHORUS 1:
Oh, a destiny of power
Invincible, forever we survive

CHORUS 1:
Climbing up the mountain
And we're reaching for the sky
Feeling the hunger burn, it's do or die
Go one step beyond
To try and reach the other side
On the horizons edge
The final chapter will arise

And as we ride the stormwind
Deny there's no way out
The resurrection time is now

And in our rise to power
Higher we dare to go
One step beyond the land we know

PRE-CHORUS 2:
Oh, and some of us may falter
But nothing can destroy our will inside

CHORUS 2:
Climbing up the mountain
And we're reaching for the sky
Feeling the hunger and it's do or die
Go one step beyond
To try and reach the other side
On the horizons edge
The final chapter is in sight

SOLO: LT

There's no turning back
As we travel on
And the lessons learned
There's no fairy tales
Oh no....

SOLO: LT

CHORUS 3:
Standing on the mountain
And we're reaching for the sky
Just beyond our reach, we wonder why
See the world so clearly now
We've reached the other side
The future clear at last
The final chapter has arrived

CHORUS 4:
Diving from the mountain
And we're falling through the sky
Finding a greater truth, another life
Like a phoenix rising up
In flames it's time to die
All past is laid to rest
The final chapter realised
