1. NEVER AGAIN

I saw the universe, I held it in my hand
The planets and the stars, merely grains of sand
The darkness that I knew is no more
The sun will shine for me, of that I can be sure

This is the day, the day of my ascendance
A time for life, a time for independence

Never Again will I bear arms against my brother
Never Again will I dishonour anyone
Never Again will I wish evil on another
Never Again will I spill blood of any mother's son

The age of Gemini, a dazzling creation
A new enlightenment, a great illumination
Dark acts of history must never be repeated
I know I must treat you, the way I'd be treated

This is the day, the day of liberation
A time for life, for new regeneration

Never Again will I bear arms against my brother
Never Again will I dishonour anyone
Never Again will I wish evil on another
Never Again will I spill blood of any mother's son

I'm climbing now, I'm gaining altitude
And now my hands can feel the grip
My head is spinning with a synergy
The power that takes me up and up

Never Again will I bear arms against my brother
Never Again will I dishonour anyone
Never Again will I wish evil on another
Never Again will I spill blood of any mother's son


2. NOTHING'S FOREVER

Last night I roamed in San Francisco
Tomorrow Shibuya is my home
I will be waiting in the darkness
In the pouring rain
And always I'm alone

Walking the streets of New York City
Light years away from where I'm born
I study the faces of the people
While I'm standing in the shadows
Of their fi nal dawn

You know that Nothing's Forever
It's just for today
Can't live for the future, forget yesterday
And hold on to life, for in moments it can fade away

Maybe I'm following too closely
Sometimes you feel you've had enough
Make the most of what you have today
Just hope and pray, for those you really love

You know that Nothing's Forever
It's just for today
Can't live for the future, forget yesterday
Nothing from nothing is nothing, Amen, so I say

Nothing's Forever
Ashes to ashes


3. HEROINE

I hold the razor blade up to my face
I feel the pulse beneath my skin
The crimson line describes the outer trace
Of my broken heart within

I thought I was invincible
Until the sky fell down on me

You are my Heroine, do with me what you will
This is no time to die, no time to kill
My heroine, my lover to the end
You give me life again, you are my heroine

I turn my mind back not so long ago
When I was cast upon the ground
Then utter chaos rained into my life
What I had lost, could not be found

I thought I'd lived forever
My time on earth had ceased to be

You are my Heroine, do with me what you will
This is no time to die, no time to kill

The gentle waves of rolling sea
Washing my demons from me

You are my Heroine, all that matters to me.
I may have loved you for a thousand years
But then you've known that all along

I always saw you as an eagle high in the sky
So tell me why
Only you, hold the key to set me free….
I thought I saw eternity
With my own eyes too blind to see

You are my Heroine, do with me what you will
This is no time to die, no time to kill
My Heroine, my lover to the end
You give me life again, with peace you send
The gentle waves of rolling sea
To wash all the demons from me

You are my Heroine,
All that matters to me…


4. SLEEPING GIANT / NO WAY BACK / REPRISE

- Sleeping Giant Parts 1 & 2
(instrumental)
- No Way Back
(instrumental)
- Reprise
Push forward again, I reach the
Point of zero return
No condemnation remains
No more bridges to burn

A hell of a deal, to keep what I feel inside
There's nowhere to run, there's nowhere to hide,
and there's
No Way Back, No Way Back
No Way Back

A progressive disease
Takes me out of the door
That's when I grab the keys, and I,
I slam my foot to the floor
Step on the gas, smash through the barricade
I'm closing my eyes, cause I don't wanna see, ‘cos there's
No Way Back, No Way Back
No Way Back

Keep on working the room
And the end is in sight
Something unknown propels me now
Leading me to the light
I got to be free it's life on the edge for me
The harder it gets, the harder I try…and there's
No Way Back, No Way Back
No Way Back

You're going too far, way over the line
You're raising the bar, no soft landing this time
We stand on the edge, this time is sink or swim
We're spreading out wing and we're learning to fl y
…and there's
No Way Back, No Way Back
No Way Back
No Way Back
It's life on the edge for me


5. ALIBIS

This time, you know just what I'm saying
But you could never give a damn
Or so it seems

It's a fine line with this game that you're playing
And you could always turn around
Go running for home

Alibis, little lies
Procrastination
Secrecy, duplicity
The end of your Alibis

Something I could always believe in
Suddenly just disappeared
It's all over now

Alibis, little lies
Procrastination
Secrecy, duplicity
The end of your Alibis
Goodbye your tiny whispers of comfort

Never the victim of circumstance
You had me deceived
So Jodie, maybe this is the last time
That I will ever speak your name
I'm going home

Alibis, little lies
Procrastination
Secrecy, duplicity
The end of your Alibis


6. I WILL REMEMBER YOU

Somewhere I'll see you again
These words are true
Inside I carry a fl ame
It burns for you

Sometimes I reach for you
But you're not there
The place you take me to
I know not where

In dreams, you come to me
I'm never free
For I know wherever I go, whatever I do,
I Will Remember You

Locked in my memory
Your silhouette
The only face I see
I can't forget

In dreams, you come to me
I'm never free
For I know wherever I go, whatever I do,
I Will Remember You

And if I should light a candle
For all the others I've known
No matter how I try
You're there before my eye
And the thought will never subside, forever
I Will Remember You

These streets and these houses
All of the places I've seen
If I run from you, no matter what I do
The fi re will always survive
The embers are still alive, and
I Will Remember You

And if I should light a candle
For all the others I've known
No matter how I try
You're there before my eye
And the thought will never subside, forever
I Will Remember You

These streets and these houses
All of the places I've been
If I run from you, no matter what I do
The fi re will always survive
The embers are still alive, and
I Will Remember You


7. SHADOW OF A DOUBT

Words trip from my tongue
Saying “be strong, always be strong”
Scenes flash past my eyes
Telling me here is where we belong

If you believe, what I believe
Then we're home,
Yeah, we're home

I should have seen it coming
I could have worked it out
Your feminine mentality
Reveals the things I cannot see
I should have seen it coming
I could have worked it out
The danger signs have left my mind,
It's way beyond a
Shadow Of A Doubt

So, it won't be long
Stay with me now, this can't be wrong
It's our right, to fly to the stars
Just for one night, this world is ours
If you believe what I believe
Then we're home
Yeah, we're home
I should have seen it coming
I could have worked it out

Your feminine mentality
Reveals the things I cannot see
I should have seen it coming
I could have worked it out

The danger signs have left my mind,
It's way beyond a
Shadow Of A Doubt


08. PARALLEL WORLDS / VORTEX / DEYA

- Parallel Worlds
(instrumental)
- Vortex
(instrumental)
- Deya
There's a vision I see
A reflection of me
In a fragment

That is frozen in time
On a luminous line
For a moment

And somewhere deep in the night
There's a girl
And she feels how I feel
‘Cause we're living in Parallel Worlds

Seems like she'll never know
How my solitude grows
And I shudder
To think I can't touch

What I'm craving so much
For I love her
Somewhere deep in the night

There's a girl
And she feels how I feel
‘Cause we're living in Parallel Worlds


9. WISH I'D KNOWN ALL ALONG

It was a lie, nothing was real
Just a disguise you're using, you're using still

When you meet the preacher man
Remind him of your fear
Over which you operate, operate control

When the truth is recalled
The evidence resound
It's the price you'll pay
On the rebound

Wish I'd Known All Along
What you're running from
Wish I'd known all along
You can't choose between weak or strong

But you're not there, to turn the key
On your own two feet, two feet on the ground

Get a grip right on, to the situation
Try to choose what you choose to ignore

Wish I'd Known All Along
What you're running from
Wish I'd known all along
You can't choose between weak or strong

Your time has come, it's not too late,
Don't hesitate

Wish I'd Known All Along
What you're running from
Wish I'd Known All Along
What you're running from
When the present destroys the past


10. ORCHARD OF MINES

Don't taint this ground
With the colour of the past
Are the sounds in bloom with you
Cos you seem like an Orchard Of Mines
Just take one step at a time

Oh
And you seem to break like time
So fragile on the inside
You climb these grapevines
Would you look now
Unto this pit of me on the ground
And you wander through these
To climb these grapevines,
Vines

I'll say it to be proud
Won't have my life turned upside down
Says the man with some gold forged plan
Of life so incomplete
Like weights strapped around my feet
Tread careful one step at a time

Oh
And you seem to break like time
So fragile on the inside
You climb these grapevines
Would you look now
Unto this pit of me on the ground
And you wander through these
To climb these grapevines

To know to feel to play me once again
Do you denote from what we feel
Do you not know
I see you've played the game
Do you denote
Can you feel once again
You feel
You!

To know to feel to play me once again
Do you denote from what we feel
Do you not know
I see you've played the game
Do you denote
Can you feel once again
You feel
You!


11. OVER AND OVER

If our only chance was in today
Let it lift us, up above someway
As the evening shadows fall
I'll confide in you once more

Over, over and over again
We will resolve our true destiny
Only through Love, our passage guaranteed
Let it lift me up above

We are on a journey, to where we can't be sure
When we are as one, It opens every door
I don't want to take you, across the great divide
This horizon's nearer, much easier to find
Let it lift me up above


12. AN EXTRAORDINARY LIFE

A perfect day, or so I say
From where I'm standing
This rollercoaster ride, fate will decide
The ending

Love everlasting, or lost on the way
The smiles and the frowns, the ups and downs
Of fortune turning
The twists and turns, the lessons learned

The bridges burning
Nights to remember and never forget
Go, seize the day
Wake up and say

This is an
Extraordinary Life
Enjoy today
Come what may
This is an
Extraordinary Life

I gave it all, my cards have fallen
But I'm still alive
And in the end, believe my friend
I will survive

Glory and heartache, and some of the joy
Go, seize the day
Wake up and say
This is an
Extraordinary Life
Enjoy today
Come what may
This is an
Extraordinary Life

All of the good times, and all of the bad
Responsibility is totally
Mine I know
I rightly stand accused

But I believe that I can change
Yes I can change my world
Go, seize the day
Wake up and say
This is an
Extraordinary Life
Enjoy today
Come what may
This is an
Extraordinary Life
