Stones Of Years

Has the dawn ever seen your eyes
Have the days made you so unwise
Realize, you are

Had you talked to the winds of time
Then you'd know how the water run
Taste of wine

How can you know where you've been
In time you'll see the sign
And realize your sin

Will you know how the seed is sown
All your time has been overgrown
Never known

Have you walked on the stones of years
When you speak, is it you that hears
Are your ears bold

You can hear anything at all


Mass

The preacher said a prayer
Save every single hair on his head
He's dead.

The minister of hate had just arrived to be spared.
Who cared
The weaver in the web that he made

The pilgrim wandered in
Commiting every sin that he could
So good...

The cardinal of grief was set in
his belief he'd saved
From the grave
The weaver in the web that he made

The high priest took a blade
To bless the ones that prayed
And all obeyed.

The messenger of fear is slowly growing
nearer to the time, he'sayin
The weaver in the web that he made

A bishops rings a bell,
A cloak of darkness falls upon the ground
Without a sound

The silent choir sing and in their silence
Bring jaded sound, harmonic crowned
The weaver in the web that he made

Battlefield

Clear the battlefield and let me see
All the profit from our victory
You talk of freedom, starving children fall
Are you deaf when you hear the seasons call

Were you there to watch the earth be scorched
Did you stand beside the spectral torch
Know the leaves of sorrow turn their face
Scattered on the ashes of disgrace

Every blade is sharp the arrows fly
We're the victims of your armys lie
Where the blades of grass and arrows reign
Let there be no sorrow be no pain



Jeremy Bender

Jeremy bender was a man of leisure
took his pleasure in the evening sun
Laid him down in a bed of roses
finally decided to become a nun

Talk with the Sister, spoke in a whisper
threatened to fist her if she
didn't come clean
Jumped on the Mother just like a brother
asked one another if the other is a queen

Diggin' the sister she was a mister
shouldn't have kissed her, but he
couldn't say no
Wanted to leave her couldn't believe her
so he picked up his suit-case and
decided to go


Bitches Crystal

Bitches Crystal
Knows how you
Twist all the lines

Fortune Teller
Future Sellerv Of time

Tortured spirits cry
Fear is in their eyes
Ghostly images die

Witches Potion
Mixed in the ocean
Of tears

Mystical Powers
Emerge From the towers
Of fear
Tortured spirits cry
Fear is in their eyes
Ghostly images die

Evil learning
People burning
Savage casting
No one lasting

Witchcraft
Sadness
Madness
Turning in their minds

Ritual killings
That swear in
The shillings to be

Heretic Priestess
Dwells on the
Weakness she sees
Tortured spirits cry

Fear is in their eyeblack moon


The Only Way (Hymn)

People has stirred moved by the word
Kneel at the shrine, deceived by the wine
How was the earth conceived Infinite space
Is there such a place
You must believe in the human race

Can you believe, God makes you breathe
Why did he lose six million Jews

Touched by the wings, fears angel brings
Sad winter storm, grey autumn dawn
Who looks on life itself, who lights your way
Only you can say. How can you just obey
His the only way.

Don't heed the word, now that you've heard
Don't be afraid: man is man made
And when the our comes, don't turn the away
Face the light of day. And do it your away
His the only way

A Time And A Place

There is a place, a time and a space
Just no one can trace, that non one can trace.

Somewhere a hill, where things are still
rain water spill, just rain water spill.

Sleep in a dream of butter milk cream
You dance on a beam, dancing on a beam

Save me from this shallow land
take me out of temper's hand
Drag me from the burning sand
show me those that understand.

Save me from this shallow land,
take me out of temper's hand
Drag me from the burning sand
show me those that understand

Rest in shade, no sound his made
Where silence is played
sound of silence played

Are You Ready Eddy?

Are you ready, Eddie,
to turn out rock-and-roll
Eddie edit, Eddie, Eddie edit..
Are you ready, Eddie,
ready to rock-and-roll
Are you ready, Eddie,
to give me some of your soul?

Are you ready, Eddie,
to pull those faders down
Are you ready, Eddie,
to pull those faders down
Are you ready, Eddie,
to turn your scully round

Are you ready, Eddie,
to pull those faders down
Are you ready, Eddie,
to pull those faders down
Are you ready, Eddie,
to turn your scully round

Well, are you ready, Eddie,
to turn your sixteen tracks on
Are you ready, Eddie,
with your sixteen tracks
Are you ready, Eddie
A bit of vibing is all it lacks

Well, vibe me Eddie,

Vibe me, Eddie, Vibe me, vibe me, Eddie...
Vibe me, Eddie, vibe me all night long.
While you're vibing me
Eddie, nothing can go wrong
Vibe me, Eddie, Vibe me, vibe me, Eddie...
