ELYSIUM

Keyboard Lead - Gary

Verse 1

Into the ends of the earth I sail

Like mortal men before

Journey far beyond the stars

Past the edge of evermore


Over years I’ve beared this world

Its suffering, despair

Searing pain inside my soul

Every time I seem to care


Pre-Chorus

Whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh

Whoa-oh-oh-oh my God he waits for me

I make this ride, I take the time for this odyssey

I sit in judgement as I wait my final destiny


Chorus

Fly, far beyond the stars

Lights fade like the faces of the past

Time dies as I contemplate the odds

I rise as I walk beside the Gods


Verse 2

Into the fields of hope I stand

By blessed I’ve been led

All alone out in this land

All inhabitants are dead


Righteous heroes in their place

Men of valour and descent

Honoured greatly with this grace

From the heavens they’ve been sent


Pre-Chorus

Whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh

Whoa-oh-oh-oh my God has come for me

I’ve been found, I’ve been crowned like the prodigy

I take this moment now I realise my ecstasy


Chorus

Fly far beyond the stars

Lights fade like the faces of the past

Time dies as I contemplate the odds

I rise as I walk beside the Gods


Interlude

Whoa-oh-oh enter a state of delirium

Whoa-oh-oh-oh into the fields of Elysium

Whoa-oh-oh-oh

Guitar Lead - Aaron


Chorus

Fly, far beyond the stars

Lights fade like the faces of the past

Time dies as I contemplate the odds

I rise as I walk beside the Gods

 

BREATHING MURDER FEAT. DEREK SHERINIAN

Verse 1
[My mind is in the past
The way it used to be
And how I felt all those years
Are just a distant memory]

In my head it’s fading
All around, descending down
As if nothing is real
Only pain I can feel

I never wanna leave
Or be so far from home

Chorus
Don’t you tell me, it’s all in my mind
You can’t help me, haven’t got that time
Time won’t change me, I’m not here to stay
Nothing tames me, when I’m in this mind
I’m breathing murder


Verse 2
When I’ve lost my mind, I can hear them say
Something’s gone inside, better stay away

Chorus 2
Don’t you tell me, it’s all in my mind
You can’t help me, haven’t got that time
Time won’t change me, I’m not here to stay
Nothing tames me, when I’m in this mind
I’m breathing murder

Middle
Another road ahead that’s laid with all I left behind
Again I close my eyes and fight the demons in my mind
It’s been so long I almost turned away from what was there
But something deep inside me drove away the thoughts of what I couldn’t bear


Don’t you tell me, you can’t help me
Don’t you help me, you can’t change me
Time won’t change me, nothing tames me
Time won’t tame me, nothing saves me


And if you ever feel it slip away
Just remember there’s a place for you
Take control and make it your own way
Just believe and trust in all you do

 

PARADISE LOST FEAT. GÖRAN EDMAN

Verse 1

(Göran) In the midst of earth and man

To where our world began

Lies the garden of creation

Full of purity and faith

The hope for our salvation

A tale of mystery and fate


(André) Angelic rebel banned from heaven

Beware the holy lord of flies

And though his face remains forever

I see the devil in his eyes


Chorus

War will reign on Heaven, Earth and Hell

(Göran) The fall of man begins

Pandemonium will rise again

(Göran) As Satan spreads his wings

Guitar Lead - Aaron

Keyboard Lead - Gary


Verse 2

(André) A wile of temptation and lust

Misguided certainty of trust

He preyed on our vanity

And made us take the bait

Though shame took hold inside

He knew it was too late


(Göran) A band of faithful angels

So beautiful and wise

Couldn’t stop the lord from straying

As he plotted our demise


Chorus

War will reign on Heaven, Earth and Hell

(Göran) The fall of man begins

Pandemonium will rise again

(Göran) As Satan spreads his wings

Keyboard Lead - Gary

Middle (Spoken)

(André) So, with the rebels by his side

He headed through the abyss

There awaited Adam and Eve

Both of whom were pure and naive

He impelled them to eat from the tree of knowledge of Good and of Evil

Then he said unto God as he’s cast out forever

(André) Better reigning in hell than to serve you in heaven


Guitar Lead - Aaron

Outro Chorus (Spoken)

(André) To the depths of hell, the devil returns

Blindness of man no longer concerns

Where Mankind in Eden no longer reside

Through shame and from guilt are now cast aside

With eyes open wide to the power of sin

To the end of ever life let now it begin


Paradise lost

Paradise lost

Paradise lost

Paradise lost

 

CHAINS OF SANITY

Verse 1

I take my time

But it runs away with me

Every day I feel the fire burn inside

Senses cry

They wanna break away

But I keep them down with chains of sanity

Guitar Lead - André


Bridge

I can feel the pain inside

Don’t you ever realise

This is everything to me. Yeah


Chorus

Fly away

On wings of broken dreams, I ride the sky

Where fortune hides, and sorrow comes to die

The darkest place I keep within my soul

A treasure chest of stories never told


Verse 2

I quell my mind

But it turns away from me

Every time I try to ease the flame inside

Thoughts subside

Never will break away

I keep them locked inside, forever they will stay


Bridge

I can feel the pain inside

Don’t you ever realise

This is everything to me


Chorus

Fly away

On wings of broken dreams, I ride the sky

Where fortune hides, and sorrow comes to die

The darkest place I keep within my soul

A treasure chest of stories never told

Outro Guitar Lead - Aaron

 

SEA OF DREAMS

Keyboard Intro Theme - Gary

Low Whistle Lead - Zachariah Gidney

Verse 1
I sat beside her in the night
Under the moonlit sky
And as I gazed into her eyes
I promised we would never die

We were young, we were full of life
Had the world laid at our feet
But in the darkness lies our fate
And pulled us in too deep


Chorus
I’ll rise up to the sky
And lay beside the stars
I let my spirit fly
Consuming all these scars

Guitar Lead - Aaron


Verse 2
So many lives I’ve led before
Surrounded by a sea of dreams
But when I found that open door
It brought me to my knees

If I can’t make this life with you
Don’t know what I’m living for
Looking back, I never knew
If I should be here anymore


Chorus

I’ll rise up to the sky

And lay beside the stars

I let my spirit fly

Consuming all these scars

Acoustic Lead - Aaron

Guitar Lead - Aaron

Chorus

I’ll rise up to the sky

And lay beside the stars

I let my spirit fly

Consuming all these scars

I’ll rise up to the sky

And lay beside the stars

I let my spirit fly

Consuming all these scars

A WARRIOR'S TALE FEAT MARK BOALS

Intro Guitar Lead - Aaron

Verse 1

(André) In a distant foreign land

A hero of our time

A warrior stands alone


Into battle he has led

Protector to our clan

Defender of the throne


Chorus 1

(Mark) Now he shows his tears where blood once shed

Reflecting on the life that he has led

His will is strong he’s no longer for sale

There’s never happy endings in a warrior’s tale


Verse 2

(André) Now the king has sent his men

Soldiers of the realm

They’ve come to take his head


But our warrior is strong

His spirit is unmatched

Now they lay here dead


Chorus 2

(Mark) He throws his sword in anger to the ground

He looks for help but nobody’s around

Hunted by the people he once saved

There’s never endings in a warrior’s tale


Keyboard Lead - Gary

Battle Speech (Spoken)

(Mark) Throw all your men at me now

I will take them one by one

And if I cannot be victorious in life

(André) I will come for you in death

Guitar Lead - Aaron


Chorus 3

(André) He can’t forsake the calling of a knight

Damned to spend a lifetime in this fight

Looks towards the kingdom as he stands

There’s no more happy endings

(Mark) Heads towards the castle with his sword

Rides on into battle with the hoard

His only chance to subjugate the Lord

Prepares another ending

For this warrior’s tale

 

EYES OF THE SEER

Guitar/Keyboard Theme - Aaron

Verse 1

Of ancient days gone by

A gift bestowed upon him

With eyes as blue as sky

He sees the darkness coming


Pre-Chorus

Just take a look inside the twisted mind

Beyond your wildest dreams that lie beyond your fantasy

Beware the horror of the visions in your nightmare


Chorus 1

Eyes that see

The image of a broken future

Misery

Can’t escape the premonition

Born to be

Guidance for the people’s calling

Never free

Servant to the prophet’s warning


Slap Bass Lead - Tim

Guitar Lead - Aaron

Verse 2

The chance to view his fate

He spent his life avoiding

Don’t know if it’s too late

To stop the end from calling


Chorus 2

Eyes that see

The image of a broken future

Misery

Can’t escape the premonition

Born to be

Guidance for the people’s calling

Never free

Servant to the prophet’s warning

Guitar Lead and Outro Lead - Aaron


Outro

He’s got the eyes upon him

He’s got the power to make them see

No wars or death depart him

He’s got the curse that holds the key


Reprise

Oh, there’s no time for me (Repeats)

THE GREAT DIVIDE PART I (INSTRUMENTAL)

Guitar Lead - Aaron

 

THE GREAT DIVIDE PART II 

Intro Piano Theme - Aaron

Verse 1

If I were to have my time again

No one would ever hurt me

I’d see through the face of their facade

And all of the lie that tempt me


But I have seen it all my life

The vanity’s never ending

The class of elitist sycophants

When will they stop pretending?


Pre-Chorus 1

My time is coming now

Who will remember me?


Chorus

I only wanted to find

A place that treasures inside

But still the struggle goes on

Where do I belong?


Verse 2

I thought the divide between us all

Of status and caste had ended

A time we could open up our hearts

We had in the past defended


But behind the scenes of their soiree

Where all the in-vogue are welcome

They form an aristocratic race

And build up a wall around them


Pre-Chorus 2

My time is coming now

You will remember me!


Chorus

I only wanted to find

A place that treasures inside

But still the struggle goes on

Where do I belong?

Verse 3

So, me and my friends have grown apart

And now they don’t want to know me

The sacrifice made for our art

They don’t understand this journey


I’ve got this will inside of me

A vision I’m never yielding

So, while they all laugh into their gin

They can’t see the path I’m building


This is the Great Divide

This is the Great Divide

This is the Great Divide


Outro

Choosing friends based on their worth

With gracious charm they’re so refined

And even those that once were true

Without a thought are left behind

Whoa-oh (repeats)
