Track Name: Ready For The Bite
I got the keys to free the dragon
Stole a ticket to ride the beast
Anchors weigh
Let's play with fire again

It's a hunger like no other
Behemoth's appetite
But at the end of the day
Who pays the piper again?

Serpents await in the wings
Cunning and deadly
Tigers are aching to spring
Better get ready for the bite
For the bite
You'd better prepare
Better prepare for the bite

It's the dawn of revolution
Discoveries abound
But don't turn away
This time we're changing the world

Like giants that walked before me
I'm a god, no more a man
But how can you say
This is the end of the world?

Serpents await in the wings
Cunning and deadly
Tigers are aching to spring
Better get ready for the bite
For the bite
You'd better prepare
Better prepare for the bite

Temper your fear with ambition
Compulsion to know
Prometheus smiles
Whispers of doubt hinder progress
Conscience let go
And bathe in denial

Serpents await in the wings
Cunning and deadly
Tigers are aching to spring
Better get ready for the bite
For the bite
You'd better prepare
Better prepare for the bite
Track Name: She May Be Evil
Like a siren
She calls out to you
Across the ages
Through the dark and the dust of her tomb

She is ancient
And forever young
She's so patient
All these eons awaiting the one

When the morning comes
The magic is done
So the story goes
You give her an inch
And she'll take your soul
I want you to know

She may be evil
Or so I've been told
She may be evil
She may be cold
Answer the demon
And she takes control
She may be evil
Or so I've been told

She awakens
Too good to be true
And you're taken
But her kiss is a curse upon you

When the morning comes
The magic is done
So the story goes
You give her an inch
And she'll take your soul
I want you to know

She may be evil
Or so I've been told
She may be evil
She may be cold
Answer the demon
And she takes control
She may be evil
Or so I've been told

Fall deep
Into black sleep
She'll keep
Whispering into your dreams
You'll see
Clearly
Hell is being ruled by a queen
Track Name: Left Behind
The horizon goes on and on
Across the desert in unmapped space
The far reaches of nowhere
One soul in its vast embrace

We were searching for new worlds
They went away and no one returned
For all my hopes of discovery
Isolation is all I've earned

So I've wandered for many miles
Crossing these alien wind-swept plains
Stretching into forever
Will I ever see home again?

In my loneliest moments
The barren ground, it calls to me
Surrender now and be free again
Laid to rest where no one will see

I search the sky for a sign
Don't they realize
I am far, far away
Like a dream that's been left behind
Day after day, wait in vain
Losing hope again
Time after time I have cried
I've been left behind

Left behind so long ago
No one knows
Dust and time have buried my bones
Welcome home
Track Name: The Mastermind
You're thunder
You're lightning
A storm in a bottle wrapped up too tight
You're frozen
You're fire
You can blow a million minds like dynamite

Angel of unseen justice
Deity in disguise
Immortal legend
None escape the mastermind
Enemy eyes abhor you
Evil is on the run
The game has just begun
The game has just begun

You're fighting
You're falling
The nemesis strikes from deep inside
You're sliding
You're dying
The demon won't sleep and you can't hide

No one must see your weakness
Skeletons in disguise
Immortal legend trapped in human flesh and mind
Enemy eyes abhor you
They've got you on the run
The game has just begun
The game has just begun

You're thunder
You're lightning
A storm in a bottle wrapped up too tight
You're frozen
You're fire
You blow my mind just like dynamite

Angel of unseen justice
Deity in disguise
Resurrection -- you were only dead inside
Enemy eyes abhor you
Evil is on the run
The game has just begun
The game has just begun
Yeah, yeah
Oh yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Track Name: God Invented Days Like This For Drinkin'
It's summertime and hot as hell
Everybody's drippin' sweat
The fella on the radio
Says we're in for hotter yet

I'll be sittin' on the porch all day
Come join me for a beer
Kick off your shoes and lose your blues
Ready, set, go, cheers

God invented days like this for drinkin'
He made the sun, He made it fun to share
I don't really know what God was thinkin'
And right now I'm too drunk to really care

Some folks don't like alcohol
Some say that it's a sin
But I ain't drinkin' with the devil
It's too damn hot for him

So come on over, bring your friends
You're welcome all to stay
Fire up the barbecue
We're cookin' anyway, hey

Oh, God invented days like this for drinkin' (yeah)
He made the sun, He made it fun to share
Well, I don't really know what God was thinkin'
And right now I'm too drunk to really care

God invented days like this for drinkin' (come on)
He made the sun, He made it fun to share
Well, I don't really know what God was thinkin'
And right now I'm too drunk to really care
Right now I'm just too drunk to really care
We're all just too damn drunk to really care
Track Name: The Haunted
The power of midnight is an old friend of mine
So why do I tremble when the hour strikes?
I'm a master of darkness playing tricks on the mind
I shouldn't be shaking, I should feel alright

It's like the shadows comes alive
It's like my heart is racing and outrunning my mind
I feel the walls start closing in
Don't leave me alone, I might not see you again

When the haunter is the haunted
When a nightmare has a bad, bad dream
When the haunter is the haunted
Even a nightmare can scream, scream

Nobody told me it would feel this way
Like invisible eyes peering out of the night
A touch on my shoulder, cold as the grave
A shape in the window and my face goes white

It's like the shadows come alive
It's like my heart is racing and outrunning my mind
I feel the walls start closing in
Don't leave me alone, I might not see you again

When the haunter is the haunted
When a nightmare has a bad, bad dream
When the haunter is the haunted
Even a nightmare can scream, scream

Don't wanna think
Don't wanna feel
Don't talk to me 'cause you're not real
Don't wanna see
Don't wanna know
Don't torture me -- just let me go

It's like the shadows come alive
It's like my heart is racing and outrunning my mind
I feel the walls start closing in
Don't leave me alone, I might not see you again

When the haunter is the haunted
When a nightmare has a bad, bad dream
When the haunter is the haunted
Even a nightmare can scream, scream

When the haunter is the haunted
When a nightmare has a bad, bad dream
When the haunter is the haunted
Even a nightmare can scream, scream
Track Name: When The War Comes Home
Nine soldiers, one jungle
Twelve sleepless nights
War-torn lands, blood rivers
No end in sight

Come darkness I remember
Flashes all around
Black devils spit lightning
Thunder from the ground

Fire raging, bush blazing
Smoke stings my eyes
Flesh burning, men screaming
Bodies baked alive

Time after time it comes back in the night
See the blood and blackened bones
I've returned from the battle but it's still inside
When the war comes home
The war comes home

Ten years now, wounds long healed
So I tell myself
Celebration, fireworks fly
And I'm back in hell

Guns sounding, hearts pounding
Charlie's got us down
Innocents cry, dead children
Village on the ground

Time after time it comes back in the night
See the blood and blackened bones
I've returned from the battle but it's still inside
When the war comes home
The war comes home

Father, please forgive me, for I know that I've done wrong
These images still haunt me like the ghosts of Viet Cong
Shall I pull this trigger, blow them straight out of my head?
It's one more for the body count, just one more soldier dead

Time after time it comes back in the night
See the blood and blackened bones
I've returned from the battle but it's still inside
When the war comes home
The war comes home

Nine soldiers, one jungle
No one came home
