V1:
Harden your heart, wield the power
Bury your doubt or feel the sun no more
Falls into an endless ocean
Twilight is at hand, darkness comes forth

Pre-Chorus:
She will rise
Her blood so cold
Hesitation will damn
Fear her eyes
That stare so old
Sired from shadows pitch black

V2:
Vampiress will stalk the living
Slave to immortal night, crimson delight
Mistress to the unholy beings
Undead warriors that drain all life

Pre-Chorus:
She will rise
Her blood so cold
Hesitation will damn
Fear her eyes
That stare so old
Sired from shadows pitch black

Chorus:
Trapped inside the darkness
She has lost her way
Forget her sweet kiss
And Embrace the day
Memories make you weak
You must play this role
Take her head with God's speed
And you'll save her soul!

Pre-Chorus:
She will rise
Her blood so cold
Beware a vicious attack
Fear her eyes
That stare so old
Sired from shadows pitch black

Chorus:
Trapped inside the darkness
Your love's lost her way
Forget her sweet kiss
You've become her prey
Memories make you weak
Don't try to console
Take her head with God's speed
Slay this beast of Ol'

Final Chorus:
Take this stake and give her peace forevermore
One way to set her free
Can't escape the gore
Try to keep your hands steady
You must be bold
Take her head with God's speed
And you'll save her soul

Vampiress (Trapped Inside The Darkness)

1st Verse:
Some say he became a broken man
When her father cried for the first time
Tears on stone from a pain he'd never known
No one should have to bury their own child

Pre-Chorus:
But the guilt, it cut
Down the man who was
Once her beloved spouse
As a god like cry
Filled the trembling sky
Along with raven storm clouds

Chorus:
Now he sees headlights in her eyes
Then wakes up in a pool of regret
He's come to despise
The man who failed to protect

2nd Verse:
Haunted by a rain-soaked starless night
Adoration turned his eye unto his lovely bride
Hands on 3 & 9 but the road escaped his sight
Could not see the light untill he heard her cries

Pre-Chorus:
Accident, surreal
Twisted bloody steel
Mangled body parts entwined
Soulmate, claimed by fate
Turned the wheel too late
The jaws could not free her on time

Chorus:
Now he sees headlights in her eyes
Then wakes up in a pool of regret
He's come to despise
The man who failed to protect

Bridge:
His heart's being torn apart by questions like,
Why did I turn left instead of right?

Chorus:
He sees headlights in her eyes
Then wakes up in a pool of regret
He's come to despise
The man that failed!

Chorus:
He sees headlights in her eyes
Then wakes up in a pool of regret
He's come to despise
The man who failed to protect

Broken Man

V1:
Ghosts In the graveyard
Ghouls and goblins at large
Witches brew will spill on you
If you let down your guard

Chorus:
Don't go walkin' in the graveyard
On All Hallows Eve
Swear, you won't get very far
Stick to trick or treat


V2:
Vamps waiting for the late dusk
Servants to their blood lust
Lycanthrope smells your scent,
As do other creatures, hell-bent

Chorus:
Don't go walkin' in the graveyard
On All Hallows Eve
Swear, you won't get very far
Stick to trick or treat


Bridge:
GATE TO A NETHERWORLD SO COLD
ON ALL HALLOWS EVE IT ALL UNFOLDS
Whispered...IT ALL UNFOLDS

Chorus:
Don't go walkin' in the graveyard
On All Hallows Eve
Swear, you won't get very far
Stick to trick or treat

All Hallows Eve (Ghosts In The Graveyard)

V1:
I've crossed through oceans of fire
Made a dark pact with the king of liars
To have you again, crushed the laws of time
I've bathed in sin, the blood is the life

Lift:
I am the 1st of my kind
I am cursed for all time!

Chorus:
Look into these hollow eyes
Taste the undead paradise
The hunt, it dies with each sunrise
But you'll learn to embrace the night

V2:
Summoning storms, taking multiple forms
All shall tremble in the face of my scorn
The day they damned you, my rage transformed
In crimson darkness I was reborn

Lift:
I am the 1st of my kind
I am cursed for all time!

Chorus:
Look into these hollow eyes
Taste the undead paradise
The hunt, it dies with each sunrise
But you'll learn to embrace the night

Bridge:
I have no equal under The Moon
Spreading as the vapor of certain doom
I am the terror in flight, the trance and the bite
The door to immortal night

Chorus:
Look into these hollow eyes
Taste the undead paradise
The hunt, it dies with each sunrise
But you'll learn to embrace the night

Undead Paradise

Why should I wait for the dawn to break
When I know you're just out messin' around?
You're not worth years of worry laden tears
Regret is such an empty sound

Gotta' set the pace, won't leave it up to fate
I'm turning the page in this book
Dead end roads don't interest me no more
2 Train Wrecks is all it took

This time I'm avoiding what's in store
I'm putting the brakes to the floor!

Chorus:
Forgiveness has it's limits, you just wait and see
Syanarra to all the times I turned the other cheek


Should've seen the signs, you were never really mine
But I'm too damn good at foolin' myself
More truth than I could bare, hint of perfume in the air
Such an unfamiliar smell

Sick of being used, you're the one who lit the fuse
That ain't the way I want to live my life
Broke a windowpane while cursing out your name
And hurling all your shit outside

Baby, you don't live here anymore
Your key don't fit, changed the lock on my door

Chorus:
Forgiveness has it's limits, you just wait and see
Syanarra to all the times I turned the other cheek

Chorus:
Forgiveness has it's limits, you just wait and see
Syanarra to all the times I turned the other cheek

BREAKING DAWN

You're lookin' so beat
Dead on your feet
Getcha' some green
Time for a treat

You… You gave it all that you got
Heart and soul, every last drop
So let loose your desire
No, you can't stop the fire!

Chorus

You gotta' get up now
And move to the beat
Can't help yourself
Can't stop your feet
No surrender, no retreat
Come on and dance with me


The first drink is free
Music can breathe
New life so sweet
Into your feet

I… I see you lookin' that way
Your hips are starting to sway
You can't fight it much longer
It's only getting stronger!



Chorus

You gotta' get up now
And move to the beat
Can't help yourself
Can't stop your feet
No surrender, no retreat
Come on and dance with me



Bridge

Crying babies give you no peace
Boss man only gives you grief
I know you're struggling just like me
Seems like an eternal week
So, if you've got the workhorse blues
And seek the Fountain of Youth,
Then follow me, you just can't lose
Have a shot, time to cut loose



Chorus

You gotta' get up now
And move to the beat
Can't help yourself
Can't stop your feet
No surrender, no retreat
Come on and dance with me

DANCE WITH ME

V1

I've been waiting so long

As the decades Roll On By

Once I was young and ready To Be sung

But tragically Patsy died



V2

No one else could fill her shoes

I was left without a voice

Fitting for a song called Blue,

So lonely I felt, trapped on that shelf

There was no other choice



Chorus:

It's true, even songs have dreams

Deep Slumber to Awakening

The answer was barely a teen

As I listened to her sing

My soul was trembling

At last I knew I was free



V3

Relieved there were no instruments

To corrupt the purest sound

Riding on the wind till the very end

Soaking up the silence of the crowd



Chorus:

It's true, even songs have dreams

Deep Slumber to Awakening

The answer was barely a teen

As I listened to her sing

My soul was trembling

At last I knew I was free



Bridge:

Tried to whisper into her mind,

"You've come so far in such a short time

Sing me like the old soul you are

And I will make you a superstar"



Chorus:

It's true, even songs have dreams

Deep Slumber to Awakening

The answer was barely a teen

As I listened to her sing

My soul was trembling

At last I knew I was free



Outro:

Soaring higher than Eagles can fly

Drawing tears from the stadium's eyes

The song of our great Nation's Pride

I never felt so alive

A Song Called BLUE

V1:
Tears of stone forged by eyes that hide from grief
Wait to be alone, but I'm denied that sweet relief

V2:
Inside a time bomb slumber is where it thrives
Emotional thunder trapped in volcanic skies

Pre-Chorus
She's trying not to weep
Trying to stand tall
Can't ever let her see
A single tear fall

Chorus:
Be strong for your mother
And hold her hand
You can always cry later
Please understand
Be the Rock of Gibraltar
Amidst a hurricane
You can always cry later
When only 1 shadow remains

V3:
With each suit, black as pitch, pressed and set aside
And loved one, to which I'm forced to say goodbye...

V4:
I dam the salt waters that long to chase the tide
But when the flow is slaughtered they become petrified

Chorus:
Be strong for your mother
And hold her hand
You can always cry later
Please understand
Be the Rock of Gibraltar
Amidst a hurricane
You can always cry later
When only 1 shadow remains

Outro:
Little wonder that in years I haven't cried
Faced the hunger of a soul that's been denied
One day it'll burst like a geyser to the sky
And this dry curse will no longer be mine
