Track Name: Man In The Sun
Walking man on fire
Flaming red desire
Burning rage of anger
A seething mass inferno

No he will not listen
Don't even try to change him
He'll make his own decisions
Livin' like a...

Man in the sun
Can you hate everyone, like he does..
Man in the sun
Yeah he hates everyone!

Yeah he's not so pretty
Don't ever make him happy,
He'll take you in his fire
Livin' like a..

Man in the sun
Can you blame everyone, like he does..
Man in the sun
Yeah he hates everyone!

AAAARGH!!!!
Track Name: Memories
Its not a wish you make and blow
Satisfy yourself in your empire
Trying hard to get rid of the pain
People know what happened in the past

Its like one page in history
Binding you everyday
Its long and vast, but its over now
Leaving back a few things behind

How many years to kill old memories
How many more to read your memories
How many years to kill old memories
How many more to read your memories

Its a life of agony, but live thru times
Why try and pull a broken chain
Just to prove one's story, you wont mind
To get away from reality

How many years to kill old memories
How many more to read your memories
How many years to kill old memories
How many more to read your memories

Stains wont wash away so soon
But they'll fade away in time
Your thoughts cant escape your caged mind
But the gates might open someday..

How many years to kill old memories
How many more to read your memories
How many years to kill old memories
How many more to read your memories

How many years to kill old memories
How many more to read your memories
How many years to kill old memories
How many more to read your memories
Track Name: Water
Walking by the sea, I could hear your voice
Wading past a sunset, I could see a sign
I stood by the ocean, for I knew you’d call
But it was time to go and I was out of time

I told you stories about a lost soul
Who’d, hold your hand when he had his way
But where are you now, I ask today, hey
Morals say don’t fall again

I’d die to feel the things you do
Put some pressure on me
I need you like water, but I can’t have you

Walking down the street, I could see your eyes
On the way back home, I heard an angel cry
You looked past me to a better day
I had my chances, had them thrown away

I’d die to feel the things you do
Put some pressure on me
I need you like water, but I can’t have you

Told you lies about being better alone
But where are you now, I ask today
I’ll never know what i did to you
Now i need you like water, but I can’t have you.
Track Name: Float
I’m just sinking, i’ve got nothing to say
Trying to just stay alive, got to reach

Am I feeling my pain, falling to rise again
All these things sting my eyes, hold these tears

Slowly dreams fade, all my gods are dead
I dive in to the waves, hold me please

Am I leaping ahead, groping for the ones I pray
Am I drowning again, can’t swim in here

When I breath into myself and float away
Do I die inside my bed or stay awake

Do I float away
Do I stay awake
Track Name: Sell Out
Bleeding, I waited, alone in the shadows
The stranger and me
I hated, bleeding, your lies melt down
And its all so surreal

I'm blinded, I'm moulded
I'm held captive, deep in your charade
Feed me, the reasons
Cause I'm not drowning, while you walk away

Your lies break me
I'll sell you, like you sold me

Seething, with anger
I'm not leaving till you end this game
You used me, abused me
Now its my turn, I'll do the same

Believing, I felt that I had found love
But you gave me pain
Forgive me, I'm buring
Don't play with fire, when I am the flame

Your lies break me
I'll sell you, like you sold me

You sold me, You sold me

Your lies break me
I'll sell you, like you sold me

You sold me, You sold me
Track Name: Ride Down
Seeping out to the corners out, of me
Blurring out all the shadows as I, go on
I'm all the pictures they have thrown onto you
Is there a reason why i'm not what you once knew

Where are the one's who'll save me
They disappeared like the life I knew
Would you know how bad i'm broken
Left here with me..

Crawling out through the roads they built, in me
Searching for clues that I wont find on my own
I'm not the one they may have changed along the way
I wont give into your mind and see you walk away

Where are the one's who'll save me
They disappeared like the life I knew
Would you know how bad i'm broken
Just left with misery, sweet misery..

Is this who I have become
Now i've got nothing on my mind
I'm gonna ride down to nowhere

Where are the one's who'll save me
They disappeared like the life I knew
Would you know how bad i'm broken
Just left with misery, sweet misery..
Track Name: Stuck With Me (feat. Atul Subbiah & Ashish Rego)
Free tonight and everything’s alright
There’s nothing over here
There’s nothing over there
Just to be right by your side

Home tonight and everything’s alright
My head is over here
But my life is there with you
And it keeps me up all night

You were a child, I was a man
Now i’m stuck in here again
If I could clear the rain
I would stand out in the light

If only I could see, I would look away
If only this was real, I would burn out in the light

I was wrong, I was not the one
My enemy is free
And I wouldn't wanna be
Stuck in here all night

You were the one who showed me the way
But if I could find the key
I would walk out on me
And the door would open wide

My life won’t be part of me again
Someday I will see the world out of me
Now i’m waiting all alone won’t you come to me
I thought I lost my mind ‘coz the door is all I see
Track Name: Cracker Of An Issue
Just in case you're dumb
You might confuse this with a movie
Thought about the problem, the question,
The reason i'm giving you

Look into the past,
See i've been relatively good
Now the only problem and question
I have for you is...

Why can't you listen to me
You've been blinded for too long
Why won't you let me use my mind

You let it slip away
And it drowned at the shore of your little ocean
Now the task at hand seems to be meaningless
You say

Walk into the light,
See my shadow fill this room
Now the only problem and question
I have for you is...

Why can't you listen to me
You've been blinded for too long
Why won't you let me use my mind

Cracker of an issue

Why can't you listen to me
You've been blinded for too long
Why won't you let me use my mind

My mind
Track Name: Feet On The Ceiling
So much closer, than she'd expect to be
No more further, than you had stood from me

No I won't stay out here
Feet on the ceiling
No I won't wait out here today

Step aside from my way
Cause i don't need you anyway
No shadow trailing my day
And ticking time away

One day to another, flushing the week away
Need to recover all that time again

No I won't stay out here
Feet on the ceiling
No i won't wait out here

Step aside from my way
Cause i don't need you anyway
No shadow trailing my day
And ticking time away

Don't wanna stay out here
Feet on the ceiling
Don't wanna wait out here
Feet on the ceiling

Step aside
Step aside from me

Step aside from my way
Cause I don't need you anyway
No shadow trailing my day
And ticking time away

Step aside from nowhere
I'm half alive and crawling
No shadow trailing my day
And begging me to stay

Stay
Track Name: Parasite
If it’s something I can’t take
It’s subject to decay
When you whisper silent screams at me
With your head up high again

But you can’t recall my name

If you lay your eyes on me
I’m a darker shade of gray
Your vanity defines your lies
And your law says i’m to blame

But you can’t recall my name
And it’s you once again

This is not the end of hate
When i dream it’s over
And you can’t control all of me
You’re a parasite so green

Maybe i’m just practical
And this my own hell
But i can’t take your mistakes
It’s your ass on the line again

But you can’t recall my name
And it’s you once again

This is not the end of hate
When i dream it’s over
And you can’t control all of me
You’re a parasite so green

This is not the end of hate
When i dream it’s over
And you can’t control all of me
You’re a parasite so green

I don’t care what it takes
Now i know it’s over
I’m so caught up i can barely breathe
With a parasite in me

Parasite
Track Name: Parasite (Live)
If it’s something I can’t take
It’s subject to decay
When you whisper silent screams at me
With your head up high again

But you can’t recall my name

If you lay your eyes on me
I’m a darker shade of gray
Your vanity defines your lies
And your law says i’m to blame

But you can’t recall my name
And it’s you once again

This is not the end of hate
When i dream it’s over
And you can’t control all of me
You’re a parasite so green

Maybe i’m just practical
And this my own hell
But i can’t take your mistakes
It’s your ass on the line again

But you can’t recall my name
And it’s you once again

This is not the end of hate
When i dream it’s over
And you can’t control all of me
You’re a parasite so green

This is not the end of hate
When i dream it’s over
And you can’t control all of me
You’re a parasite so green

I don’t care what it takes
Now i know it’s over
I’m so caught up i can barely breathe
With a parasite in me

Parasite
Track Name: Spiderman (Live)
Spiderman, Spiderman
Friendly neighbourhood Spiderman
Wealth and fame, he ignores
Action is, his reward

Lookout, here comes the Spiderman

Spiderman, Spiderman
Friendly neighbourhood Spiderman
Wealth and fame, he ignores
Action is, his reward

Lookout, here comes the Spiderman

In the chill of the night
At the scene of the crime
Like a streak of light
He arrives, just in time

In the chill of the night
At the scene of the crime
Like a streak of light
He arrives, just in time

Spiderman, Spiderman
Friendly neighbourhood Spiderman
Wealth and fame, he ignores
Action is, his reward

Lookout, here comes the Spiderman
