1. GIANT

The birth of a realisation
The rise of a high expectation
Emerging successful, defiant
Together the parts make a Giant

See the world in the palm of his hand
Striding steps that will cover the land
He is coming
Hear him coming
Are you ready
For his being ?
See the Giant
Feel the Giant
Touch the Giant
Hear the Giant

The birth of a realisation
The rise of a high expectation
Emerging successful, defiant
Together the parts make a Giant


2. FUNNY WAYS

I'm sorry to have been so much of a bore
But in my own funny ways I find I learn much more
I realise what you think from your eyes
But in your own funny ways I find I learn much more

My ways are strange
They'll never change
They stay, strange ways

I'm sorry to have been so close from the start
But for all that I cared we could be miles apart
I understood that you never would
Understand a way of life I never could

My ways are strange
They'll never change
They stay, strange ways

Go your own way or wait for me
Go your own way or wait for me
Go your own way or wait for me
Go your own way or wait for me

And so you see what happened to me
Since the time when I judged my life in nights and days
I realised that my life was lies
So you see what I mean with all my funny ways

I'm sorry to have been so much of a bore
But in my own funny way I find I learn much more

Funny ways, Funny ways, Funny ways, Funny ways


3. ALUCARD

Lying still
Am I dreaming
Feel the chill
Breath of fear
Evil fingers
Hover, linger
Someone help me
Terror fills my soul

Living dead
Am I breathing
Sightless, blind
Heart stopped beating
Hear the crying
Of the dying
Someone help me
Ogres of the night


4. ISN'T IT QUIET AND COLD ?

Isn't it quiet and cold walking all alone, alone ?
Happened I missed the bus and found I had to walk, alone

What was that ?
Only me
Hear the echo of my feet
Footsteps
Are they mine ?
Hear the echo of the street

Wished I lived near at hand although I live alone, alone
At least I'll find company, so why should I moan, alone

Movement
By my feet
Paper wind across the street
Curtains closed
Sleepy heads
Wrapped together in their beds

I used to walk with someone else
I didn't seem to notice sights and sounds of the lonely street
I used to talk with someone else
Now the only answers are the calls of the night

Look at that alley cat, it's winding home to rest, alone
Half-past four and daylight shows itself once more
Walking all alone
Walking all alone


5. NOTHING AT ALL

Now she sits by the riverside
Watching the waters glide by
With a sigh
And the things she put faith in
Are ripples just waving her by
With a sigh

She sees lovers pass by with much more than a kiss
Ah this - little girl who had everything finds
She's nothing at all

Now the wind seems so cold
Seems all old as it laughs at her fears
And her tears
And as ducks swim away from her
Visions of past love appear
In her tears

She sees love in his face as she tells him to go
And so - here's a girl who had everything now
She's Nothing at all

What could she do if she saw him now
Now that he's gone she's losing
If she could see what she's seeing now
For sure she's more than just choosing

Now she sits by the riverside
Watching the waters glide by
With a sigh
And the things she put faith in
Are ripples just waving her by
With a sigh

She sees lovers pass by with much more than a kiss
Ah this - little girl who had everything finds
She's nothing at all


6. WHY NOT ?

Don't sing a tune to yourself
You might believe this one
Try not to sew it yourself
The threading won't stretch none

Don't give me none of that line
Why not?
Got to sing something
Love's song there's nothing to find
Why not?
Dead before playing

Don't sing a tune to yourself
You might believe this one
Try not to sew it yourself
The threading won't stretch none
Who says the things that go in
The song is only saying
Dead thought can kill a good thing
The band is only playing

Why not climb a hill
With someone that hates you
Why not hate someone
Who climbs a hill with you
And as time passes by
Your feet start slipping
You are wondering why
There is no forgetting

Don't sing a tune to yourself,
You might believe this one
Try not to sew it yourself
The threading don't stretch none
Who says the things that go in
The song is only saying
Dead thought can kill a good thing
The band is only playing

Don't give me none of that line
Why not?
Got to sing something
Love's song there's nothing to find
Why not?
Dead before playing
Dead before playing
