Track Name: Under My Wing
I've looked up to you for such a long time
I would give anything to intertwine your life with mine
Threw myself at you should have been more mature
I let my reckless nature throw myself to the floor
Maybe I'm trying too hard to make you see
That there is some part of you that wants to say to me

Hey there kid you've shown your potential
With some encouragement you'll be able to stand tall
Hey now kid you've shown that your rare
Use that ambition we could create a little flare
I bet one day you'll want to fly side by side you and I
Until then let me do what I can and let me take you under my wing

There are many myths and fables that I hear
They all seem to eaggerate and elevate my fears
I'm losing sight of what was once a clear road
My imagination has gone into overload
An internal struggle that leads me astray
Maybe I'm not worthy enough to hear you say

Hey there kid you've shown your potential
With some encouragement you'll be able to stand tall
Hey now kid you've shown that your rare
Use that ambition we could create a little flare
I bet one day you'll want to fly side by side you and I
Until then let me do what I can and let me take you under my wing

This is getting me nowhere I'm stifling myself
No more running or shying away
I alone can conquer my fears and self doubt
N eed to be honest about this conflict inside
Then maybe I can finally hear

Hey there kid you've shown your potential
With some encouragement you'll be able to stand tall
Hey now kid you've shown that your rare
Use that ambition we could create a little flare
I bet one day you'll want to fly side by side you and I
Until then let me do what I can and let me take you under my wing
Track Name: Shame
I've not always been who you see today
Now pieces of my past are slowly surfacing
My apparent high morality disguise who I really am
Not all would walk the path I chose to be where I am today
Though I may seem forthright and rightous now
That is not who I've been always

I advise against looking into my past
No one can know who I used to be
Some things are better off left buried
You do not want my shadows to surface again

I've tried to always be the better man
But truth be told I've caused the misfortune of many
Though my past actions come with their own regrets
Given a second chance I would probably repeat the same
I did what was required to achieve my goals
Just don't ask how I came to be

You can't know my shame
Things will never be the same
You can't know my shame
No you cannot see how I became

You can't know my shame

I will protect my past through any means necessary
My shadows must remain in the darkness
If you follow your chosen path of enquiry
They may have to rise one more time
I'm not proud of the things I've done to be where I am
But I would repeat them again in order to stay
Though it may pain my heart to do so
It appears I'm burying one more secret today

No Shame
You can't know my shame
No you can't know my shame
Things will never be the same
No you can't know my
No you can't know my
No you can't know my
Shame
Shame
No you cannot see how I became
You can't know my shame
You can't know my shame
Track Name: Queen Of Deception
She moves through the crowds unseen
Her nefarious purpose remains to be seen
Her identity's her greatest weapon
We're yet to know we've caught her attention

Her magic is something you should fear
She'll steal away those you hold dear
Make accusations as you will
You'll find many more fall under her spell

The Queen of Deception
The Queen of Deception

Walks freely among us
Plots to overthrow us
Minions waiting at your door
Careful who you trust anymore

Cloak and dagger tactics, mind control
She takes down opponents casually in her stroll
There is little most can do
Her power is matched by very few

Her Ultimate goal
is more than dominion of a soul
A Megalomaniac who
is looking to stage a worldwide coup

The Queen of Deception
The Queen of Deception

So you've seen through my disguise
You still can't hope to stop my rise
Now I'm forced to seal you away
Trust me you'll never see the light of day
We come to you out of necessity
We have set our sights upon your city
My kind require to voraciously feed
A warning to which you should have taken heed
And so my army follows in my wake
Once I've paved the way they'll get their take
Once I'm rid of those who can stop me
It'll be too late for you to run and flee
Soon there will be nowhere for you to hide
Your defences will fall from the inside
Prepare to see our full aggression
from the Queen of Deception

Walks freely among us
Plots to overthrow us
Minions waiting at your door
Careful who you trust anymore
If she has you in her sight
Better be prepared to fight
Your future hopes and dreams
Are not part of her schemes
Track Name: One Day
Time has fallen on my reign
Now forced to walk these desolate plains
Those still loyal to me at my side
Looking back at where we used to thrive
Circumstanstial change, A public ousting
A place where I no longer claim to be king

we will return
One promise I can keep
We will not choose to live this way
we will return
One promise I can keep
Mark my words, here you will not forever stay

One day, We will rise again
Take back the only place we've ever called home
One day, I promise my friend
But for now we have fallen
One day, We will rise again
But for now we have fallen

Look to the horizon, our rising sun will be soon

We will return
This is not the end
We will not choose to live this way
We will return
This is not the end
Mark my words, You will rue this day

One day, We will rise again
Take back the only place we've ever called home
One day, I promise my friend
But for now we have fallen
One day, We will rise again
But for now we have fallen

Look to the horizon, our rising sun will be soon
Track Name: Never Alone
A dark cloud hangs over your head
A burden you try to hide
You see it as your problem alone
This doesn't have to be solely yours

While you lament in privacy
Staring up into the night sky
Hoping to protect those closest to you
You don't have to move forward alone

I will be your support through the challenges you face
If you call for me, I will come running to your side
Together we will be stronger
There is no need for you to face anything alone
Trying times will always be ahead of you
But I will always be there in your time of need
Fight on through and never let it bring you down
Remember you're never alone

Look to me whenever you need
You'll never find me too far away
I will readily be by your side
I always stand by you

We can all be troubled from time to time
And just like I hope you'll be there for me
If I can share with you in anyway
Then together we will face it head on

I will be your support through the challenges you face
If you call for me, I will come running to your side
Together we will be stronger
There is no need for you to face anything alone
Trying times will always be ahead of you
But I will always be there in your time of need
Fight on through and never let it bring you down
Remember you're never alone
Track Name: Awakening
You've put our backs to the wall
The upper hand appears to be yours
Broken us down piece by piece
Through numerous trials
Options not on our side
But I will not back down just now
Searching deep inside
To find some fight to turn the tide

And I can see, the bigger picture now
I can feel, the world around me now
I can bring, out this strength inside
For my time has come, I awaken

Previous hardships overcome
Have come to strengthen us over time
Unlocked new potential
Our journey has caused a power to rise
The setup we're in now
Has ultimately favoured our side
After setting off blindly
Finally my destiny has come to light

For I can see, the bigger picture now
I can feel, the world around me now
I can bring, out this strength inside
For my time has come, I awaken

I Awaken
I Awaken
I Awaken
I Awaken
I Awaken
I Awaken

I transcend, for all to see
A vision, a greater form of me
Push onwards, no more need to hide
Nothing will stop me , I awaken
I can see, the bigger picture now
I can feel, the world around me now
I can bring, out this strength inside
For my time has come, I awaken
Track Name: Chaos Rising
Things are going to change
Now is the time for Chaos

Welcome to my new dominion
I've made a few changes since you were last here
Everything is not as it first appears
There's a higher level of perceived fear
The world is a little more topsy turvy
There's little distinction between night and day
Things pass a little more randomly now
I have a preference for things to be that way
A certain disorder is what I seek
My amusement is the intent
I've little time for cause and effect
when there's metaphysical changes to implement
Harmony in these parts
Has been in place for far too long
Chaos makes for a more interesting relationship
between the weak and the strong

I'm the new reigning king of Chaos
Sitting on my throne in my new reformed land
You can take me on playing my little games
But you will never beat what is in my hand
Welcome to life under my tyranny
Everywhere you see under my special hex
You better get used to the unexpected
There's no telling what is coming next

Things are going to change
Now is the time for Chaos

So some of you come here to seek a challenge
My power is not something you really want to test
Whatever little tricks you may have up your sleeve
You're gonna fail just like all the rest
So bring it on
Hope you can handle a little disorientation
All is not as it seems
The rules of our engagement may be open to interpretation
I've no desire in ending my rule
Things have only started to get interesting
You'd be a fool to think I'm playing fair
It's my game, my rules, I'll decide who's winning

I'm the new reigning king of Chaos
Sitting on my throne in my new reformed land
You can take me on playing my little games
But you will never beat what is in my hand
Welcome to life under my tyranny
Everywhere you see under my special hex
You better get used to the unexpected
There's no telling what is coming next

You don't want to appeal to my conscience
And you really don't want to try my patience
If you're real threat then you can be sure
I'll reach into your soul and change your very nature
Your worst traits will be for all to see
Hard to band together when your enemies
Your only defence is to turn tail and run
This is just the beginning of my fun

I'm the new reigning king of Chaos
Sitting on my throne in my new reformed land
You can take me on playing my little games
But you will never beat what is in my hand
Welcome to life under my tyranny
Everywhere you see under my special hex
You better get used to the unexpected
There's no telling what is coming next

Embrace the Chaos
Track Name: Uprising
Come soar with me
I Will help you to see
All is not lost
Things can return if you pay the cost

You may begin
To think how can we win
In a land full of sin
Where unjust rulers can be kings

Divided we lie low
Confined to the shadows
But there is a chance to fight
If we all step into the light

A rallying cry
Will sound across the sky
Our forces will grow
Our combined might we will show

We stand aligned
Brothers and sisters in kind
Acting as a whole
We will demonstrate out resolve
Against the crimson sky
Our banners will fly
We will not be beaten
As we march to freedom

We will stand against the odds
We will take on your supposive gods
Though you may destroy our lives
You cannot take away our will to survive
We unify behind our one goal
To make this land once again whole
The message travels far and wide
The uprising is nigh

We will stand against the odds
We will take on your supposive gods
Though you may destroy our lives
You cannot take away our will to survive
We unify behind our one goal
To make this land once again whole
The message travels far and wide
The uprising is nigh

We will usher in a new era
One that is free of this reign of terror
Divided we were forced to hide
United we can now turn the tide
We unify behind our one goal
To make this land once again whole
The message travels far and wide
The uprising is nigh
