Again 02:43
We got into a fight It never came to light And while we went to rest, oh Anna Put everything else first, while we digressed And while we were asleep We sunk our dreams so deep That by the rising tide, oh Anna They shriveled and died, oh Anna Can't you hear the call? There ain't no use at all We can no longer hide, oh Anna From all the times we tried, again, again, oh Anna The sound of the metal doors Their screech taking flight To wake the night owl The sound of the metal doors Words taking hold Again

I Walk Away 03:30
The rose in the meadow The flower you carry Ripe for the taking And you know I’m a loving soul No I won't climb the barricades The people may be watching It ain't the sound of the avalanche It is the sound of the backroom door And I walk away Sure there are some things And I try to take stuff on But you know I can’t force it Take some sugar with your coffee No I won't climb the barricades The people may be watching It ain't the sound of the avalanche It is the sound of the backroom door And I walk away Saying I won't start today No I won’t start today Saying I won't start today No I won’t start today And I walk away

Shuck me, where’s the hurry? You’re gonna eat me raw I keep on, even when it’s going down Touch me, get on going, chewing in the dark And I won’t sleep waiting for the rise Into golden nights Shuck me, you shuck me right Now see her silent breathing life Before I’ll part your body’s side, naked in the dark And I won’t sleep until we redefine Into golden nights
4.
Ain’t no use to watch the murder scene It won’t earn you bucks on the silver screen You began to dig your grave many years ago You just live your life from day to day 'till the nagging feeling fades away You forgot the stuff you shoved down the hole But you love keeping up the show Off to school cause you need to learn a trade Off to work cause you need to fill your plate Off to bed ‘cause again you worked too late for love Off to the pub cause you need some air Off to the shop cause you need a suit to wear Whatever it was, you don’t care no more But you’re still keeping up the show Pockets are lighter Futures are brighter Pockets are lighter Freed from the real Numb in between No longer care No longer there You have never been caught in a race so long

Phantom Warrior Phantom Warrior Phantom Warrior Phantom Warrior Seeing with his phantom eyes Hearing with his phantom ears Thinking with his phantom mind And longing with his phantom heart Fearless Warrior Phantom Warrior Faceless Warrior Phantom Warrior Madly crying out for years But whispering in no man’s ears Sadly dreaming phantom dreams And dying with his silent screams Why does he haunt those who may live forever? He is a phantom, he is a warrior, He is a Phantom Warrior Fearless Warrior Phantom Warrior Faceless Warrior Why does he haunt those who may live forever? During office hours He is a phantom, he is a warrior He is a phantom Warrior

When we roamed the night And the night embraced the people We unlocked doors But then I’m still here In this play you love to parry me I've been alone before It’s no life’s worth at all It is an evil play with a beguiling voice that clouds the mind all day ‘till the mind gets numb and you’ll run into the night where they wait to devour you all She’s seen you run, she’s seen you fall You’ve heard it all before but you’re going on Roll the dice, refuel the spite In an endless flight Through the night, through the night! There ain’t no soul alive within these thrown-together bones Your bleeding leaves a mess upon the cobblestones It is the fear that guides you through the night As you try to keep a hold on your feeble mind Curse the light, burn the life As you fly Through the night, through the night! You’re a ghost driving a meat coated skeleton made from stardust. What do you have to be scared of?
