I Seek No Other Life
(Lyrics: breed/Albertsson)

No promises hold me now
No time and no place is announced
The thousands that worry how
They're simply obsessed with their plans

Inside the walls come down
Outside the rains fall down

I've told you a thousand times
The time and the place must be now
My friends let's not worry how
We simply let rip at their plans

I live today—I live tonight
I stand alone and I alone decide what's right
So when tonight has come
Just when the hunt is on
I seek no other life

No promises hold me now
No time and no place is announced
My friend let's not worry how
We simply let rip at their plans

High and Low
(Lyrics: breed/Vacik)

I have feared life enough to hide in sorrow
I have lived most my life inside my mind
I always thought there'd be time—Come tomorrow
I'd find you friend and to this end
I'd start my life and go high and low

Now I'm here
Life is clearly light and shadow
Nothing can stop me from leaving now
The darkness starts to fade

Now I'm told there's no tomorrow
Nowhere left to go

High and low
You can be given too much time
I may be leaving soon but I'm
sure to remember
You can believe me when I say
no one will listen when you pray
No one receiving high or low

Now I'm sure there's no tomorrow
Nowhere left to go

High and low
You can be given too much time
I may be leaving soon but I'm
sure to remember
You can believe me when I say
no one will listen when you pray
No one receiving

High and low
You can be given too much time
I may be leaving soon but I'm
sure to remember
High and low
You can believe me when I say
no one will listen when you pray
Now I'm receiving
High and low

Sealing My Fate
(Lyrics: breed)

You and I were worlds apart
but here we are
Like a night awaiting storm
we know we are
meant to walk beside the beast
with hollow hearts
Left to brave a night of stars

Trailing behind I kept eye on a sky
painted in tears
and the blood of the fallen
Line after line of this endless detail
Facing the storm
of the dreams they have stolen

Follow them blindly, you'll die
This night will decide
where our company lies
Follow them blindly, you'll die

Sealing my fate I volunteer
and now I drift among the stars
They said they'd meet us here
to turn the final key

Silent we glide
through this star-studded night
Facing the years
and the paths we have chosen
Night after night and we know it prevails
Line after line and the faces are frozen

Follow them blindly, you'll die
This night will decide
where your destiny lies

Temple of the Sun
(Introduction to Akhenaton)

Instrumental Return to topSeparator Bar

Akhenaton
(Lyrics: breed)

Rising in the desert
a temple of the sun
In shades of gold
it meets the morning
Dancing shadows stir the night
Powers move and shift and'
I'll rise again

With the passing of time
Like the ever-breathing Nile
I shall rise again
Like the stars, the moon, the sun
When all seasons come undone
I shall rise again

Lift your eyes and see
I hold the blackened sky
To wake the sun and welcome morning
and when you see
the magic light brings to your eyes
You know I was, I am
And oh! I shall become
I shall become

Tell me you're the son of the sun
Akenaton

My Mystic Mind
(Lyrics: breed)

Ten times the time it took
to open up my mind
Is the time I've lived without myself
as I let the inside out
And now I see me everywhere
Yet every time I turn
The mirror changes faces
and the faces always tell me

You dream—You hurt
Life is twice divided
We live and yearn to
fill the void inside
You dream to learn
fate is undecided
but live and learn
nothing's on your side

Some say I had it coming all along
Some say it's everywhere
and nothing's ever wrong
My mystic mind
twists my dreams and turns
tells me I will burn

Ten times the madness grows
and it beckons all along
Familiar faces everywhere
but their names are all so wrong
I love the word intention
an extension of the soul
And though I find I'm losing mine
I intend to save you all

Trail of Murder
(Lyrics: breed)

Out in the desert
The sun and burning sand
I left your message
now I hold out both my hands
As you just shake your head
I know it's understood
You never listen
but I say I think you should

Some lie! Some lie!
Cover up a trail of murder
This operation
so bold yet still sublime
Around—Around
Tailor-made to suit your purpose
Don't believe what you've been told
We've nothing left at all

Stone cold and reckless
Messiah's burning land
I got your message
Got it holed up in my hands
It's all just shake 'n' bake
I hope it's understood
Some never listen
but I say I think you should

Shards and splinters in my soul
Bloody trail of murder
Still you think you're in control
but this trail goes further

As Daylight Breaks
(Lyrics: breed/Stauch)

I'm sorry dear
I know I've failed you once again
Tell me what's this truth
that can't be told?
I can't go on
It is not what it used to be
It's just life you know
I've lost the dream

The feeble fire
of a broken soul
Life expires
It flickers in the cold

All this seems so never ending
Drifting with the wind
The writing's on the wall
As daylight breaks
a thousand fallen angels
shed their tears in vain
Against the wind
the march goes on

When I'm alone
I cry and hope that you're ok
I know what I should do
but always fail

Words won't help you
And the guilt is mine to bear
I see my bitter end my love
This love won't change

And as the days grow dark
As hope gives way to night
A darkness settles over me
Just one shred left of light
This love...

All this seems so never ending
Whispers on the wind
The writing's on the wall
As daylight breaks
a thousand fallen angels
spread their wings and soar
Into the wind till they fall

and feel the fire
burning in their souls
To find desire
a treasure in the cold

All this seems so never ending
Whispers in the wind
The writing's on the wall
As daylight breaks
a thousand fallen angels
spread their wings and sing
of hope that soars
as daylight breaks

Someone Else's Life
(Lyrics: breed)

You pull me in and hold me close
I can feel your beating heart
This pounding pain
brings me back again
It's a constant race on your part

Please be kind
We're out here alone
This life's the one constant I know
Given time
and a true, open mind
You'll see how I live inside
and I can show you how

I turn reality away
So I can live another day
No matter where I turn
I see your hopes and dreams all burn
I'm leaving everything behind
and turn to dreams of every kind
Cause when I'm there I'm not
Living someone else's life

To leave this world reflected in your eye
can't wait another day
Can't you see?
I'm not free
Reality imposed its will on me

Try facing life without a heartbeat
Try chasing demons of your own
Breaking in to close an open mind
to find you're trapped inside alone

But here's the world again
Wave after wave of crushing pain
Wave after wave after wave
after wave after wave

Setting Fire to the Earth
(Lyrics: breed)

Tell me what I see here
Cause I'm lost
Looking for a future
for a time I saw it clearly
and we nearly had it all
Now it's gone
and I can see us failing

They've been watching
They've been waiting
They've been biding their time
So when the lights go out
you'd better run

Nothing you can do here son just run
Live to fight another day tomorrow
Fight for all you're worth
But now you run
Somewhere down the line
you'll find the one
Somewhere in the past
you find the order
Setting fire
Setting fire to the earth

There's no time, believe me
but I'm here
Back in time to help you
There's a time to make a statement
There's a time to set things straight

Older and Wiser
(Lyrics: breed)

Don't like society?
Then you can't help but see
you've rabid dogs upon your heels
Not feeling like the rest?
Just take another test
Gauge each emotion that you feel

Keep in mind
9 out of 10 ain't bad

Trapped in bureaucracy
or lost in ecstasy?
No matter which I'm sure you'll yearn
to learn that heresy
and acts of god and me
are machinations of this world

What do you do when all that's coming down on you
says that you're older—you're older
And every day you see the lines on every face
and you feel older but none the wiser

Enraged by apathy
Cold hearts in atrophy
A generation quite disturbed
The iron curtain fell
Now life's a private hell
Perpetually unperturbed

What do you do when all that's coming down on you
says that you're older—you're older
And every day you see the lines in every face
and you feel older but none the wiser
Tell me it's true—Why don't you
Tell me it's true
As we grow older we should grow bolder
Tell me it's true 'cause I would love to be like you
Older and wiser, too

Listen to the Storm
(Lyrics: breed)

Come
Share the night with me
and dream of home
Alive at least
A nightmare ending
Somewhere in the darkness
There's a place for us
Distant past, forgotten future
waiting now to

Talk to you, talk to you
Today you open your mind
and hear it talk to you
The storm is yours to find
Let it talk to you
Listen to the storm
Talk to you

Stay
Listen to the storm inside of me
When I'm alone it rages strong
And I'm afraid there's something wrong
I can't make right
Listen to the storm and tell me
I can talk to

Somewhere in the darkness there's a place for us
Somewhere in the darkness near or far
Listen to the storm and brave the dark
Tell me can you see me where you are
No one lives forever yet you carry on
Listen as the storm grows in your heart
Night after night, after night, after night until dawn

Fly On
(Lyrics: breed)

Once your world was a happy place
Thought you knew what it would bring
Every part of you
every single play
there were a million ways to win

Saw the tears in your eyes, my love
as you threw your cards away
Oh, the pain you're in
the stakes went up
as your heart got in the way

And I say
Ride out, ride free

Fly on like you own the sky
You can ride upon the wind
Fly on like the eagle, fly
Ever higher on the wind

But once the sorrow fades
and your pain is tucked away
Think your world can wear another face
You might as well just stay

And you marvel at the star-lit sky
as we gaze into the night
At this moment I feel lost in time
I just hope we got it right

And I say
Take heart, take me

I Show You My Heart
(Lyrics: breed)

We sail the seas of madness
Stand silent in the sun
We harmonize with downcast eyes
An hour less to last

What's haunting me
this hollow man
So shallow, so hard, so pale
Asking me what I would be
if only I could have my way

I'm surprised to find you standing here
Like a siren in the storm
You say that I alone can't try to set it right
So like a sentenced man I run
All too sure that what's been said
can't be undone

We sail the seas of madness
Stand silent in the sun
We harmonize with downcast eyes
We harmonize

I show you my heart
Take it apart
Lay it all out for you to chart
There's a world in there
Can you see it?
Every detail, every part?
I show you my heart
I take it apart
Lay it all out for you to chart
There's a world in here
can you see it?
Can't let two worlds fall apart
I show you my heart

The time I know is now
So I share with you my past
to freely speak what's on my mind
from the status of our prime
to the mysteries of a million misheard rhymes
