1. The Great Pandemonium

War, war, war, war, war, war, war…….
On a silent shore
I spoke to God
The sun is down
Assemble the great pandemonium
Waaaaaaaar

One more down by the brook of Babylon
One more down in accordance with my fate
One long drift across the lake of Avalon
One more trip that I must create

And my eyes sweep a shore
that was always there
A blood red line
Through the sonisphere
I can’t resolve where it’s coming from
I sense it’s the great pandemonium

One more, Just one more
Just one, Just one more day
One more day by the pits of hell
Just one more when even yesterday was too late
One more thought that i have to sow
One last trick that you can’t debate

Waaaaaaaaar

On a silent shore
I confronted fear
I spoke to God
But he wasn’t there
The sun is down
And the war begun
Assemble the great pandemonium

*Growls*
Break down
Got to break down
Break down

And my eyes sweep a shore
That was always there
A blood red line
Through the sonisphere
I can’t resolve where it’s coming from
I sense it’s the great pandemonium

On a silent shore
I confronted fear
I spoke to God
But he wasn’t there
The sun is down
And the war begun
Assemble the great pandemonium

Just one, Just one, Just one more day
Just one, Just one, Just one more day
Just one, Just one more
WAAAR

2. If Tomorrow Came

I not sure if she could ease your pain
You’ve been gone for awhile
Crush your heart until it tears your vain
Hush your mouth
Here she, here she comes, here she comes
watch out

She can see you like the hounds of hell
Smells your fear when you flee
Here she comes fervent ocean paradise

God made flesh perfect alibi
You saw her walking over poison ivy leaves,
Nobody knows her name
Something must have opened your eyes, it seems
Cause nothing is quite the same

I’m not sure about a thing you know
Days are long in the haze
Here she comes fervent ocean paradise

Here she comes with her good advice

You’ve honored every single moment you’ve resigned
Knowing there’s none to blame
You mine as well have swear one the life you tried
As if tomorrow came
You saw her walking over poison ivy leaves
Nobody knows her name
And something must have opened your eyes, it seems
Cause nothing is quite the same
You’ve honored every single moment you’ve resigned
Knowing there’s none to blame
You might as well have swear on the life I try
As if tomorrow came

3. Dear Editor

«Dear Editor,
This is the Zodiac speaking. I am back with you. Tell Herb Caen I am here. I have always been here. That city pig, Toschi, is good, but I am both smarter and better. He will get tired then leave me alone. I am waiting for a good movie about me. Who will play me? I am now in control of all things. Yours truly…»

4. The Zodiac

She was so kind to me
She sang her little shadow song
And I could not resist it
Bitter blood, come sing along

With your hand upon the bible
Would you swear that is the truth?
(The whole truth and the truth alone)

If she had only shut her mouth

Shattered memories of quiet cold rejection
A careful devil’s irony in pure perfection
In pure deceit

You ask me
Was it all i had to tell?
Was it all I could recall?
Know that i broke her neck
A twisted china white visage
I may seem unaffected
But don’t we all want to be god?

Is it all you can remember?
Would you swear it on your life?

You will never really know my name without reflection
A careful devil’s irony in pure perfection
In pure deceit

But in the moment it’s so beautiful
Flow along with a hunger
With the nature of the beast

These are shattered memories of quiet cold rejection
A careful devil’s irony in pure perfection
You will never really know my name without reflection
A careful devil’s irony in pure perfection
In pure deceit

5. Hunter’s Season

Someone to protect and be protected by
When that certain fury would come
Someone to respect and be respected by
When deprivation took its toll on you
No more to defend, fading away

‘Cause we were always alone,
We were born in the hunter’s season
All I really ever wanted was for you
You to die in the arms of someone

Someone to remember only to the ground
When the sudden glory is gone
Mother would you send a sign, a message down
Consolidation with your only son
No more to defend, for someone to love

‘Cause we were always alone,
We were born in the hunter’s season
All I really ever wanted was for you
You to die in the arms of someone

This destiny that falls upon you
‘Cause nothing remains, so long
Only a miracle could have killed the pain
You see, now you go

A silent custody, you meet my eyes
Though life is long I know you’ll wait for me
Know it too

‘Cause we were always alone,
We were born in the hunter’s season
All I really ever wanted was for you
You to die in the arms of someone

6. House On A Hill

[Roy]
Call me a liar, a king or a fool,
But sing me a song of prosperity
Higher and higher, the farther we fall
Hard to remember

[Simone]
I will surrender and I’ll always wait
Wait as in all of eternity
Hard to remember
And hard to forget this shadow
That hangs over me

[Roy, Simone]
Take me home to a house on a hill, in oblivion
And take away this shadow over me

[Roy]
Cry me a river, but once you run dry
Say there’s a reason you do
[Simone]
Godless endeavors, smothered and broken
All that I wanted was you

[Roy, Simone]
Take me home to a house on a hill, in oblivion
Where souls never die all alone
You’re longing for love, not for sympathy
So take away the shadow over me

[Roy] Under the starlight you shine your solitude
[Simone] Eyes on the ocean and far beyond west of the moon

[Roy, Simone]
Take me home to a house on a hill, in oblivion
Where souls never die all alone
You’re longing for love, not for sympathy
Over the hills
Home, to your house on a hill, to oblivion
Where souls never die all alone
You’re longing for love, not for sympathy
So take away the shadow over me

7. Necropolis

Sunshine
Swell life
Soak in another day
All that I need
Is a reason to go
You and I
Could fly away
We’d go up
And never come back down
From Heaven you know

Wake me
Revolve
In my wounds
Lay down your enemy
On the altar of refined deception
Hate me
I’m all over you
Reset the harmony
Like a fire in the night

Pushing closer
East side silence
One last warning
West side
Let all be friends
Every nation
Thank you
For putting down your arms

[This was the war
To end all wars
This was the war to save democracy]

Wake me
Like nails in my spine
Let’s play the tragedy
In the fire of
A last temptation
Hate me for wasting my time
On commonalities
In the name of self-respect

Don’t wait too long
Don’t harvest too late
May I wish you won’t
Believe in your fate

Wake me
Revolve
In my wounds
Lay down your enemy
Hate me for wasting my time
On commonalities
In this city of the dead

8. My Train Of Thoughts

In the shadow of my doubt
This life is dust on naked walls
In the ruins of defeat
The spotlights fades
There’s a clown without a crowd
His sorrow smiles relentlessly
Welcome winter bittersweet
Of final fall

My train of thoughts
Keep on hauling me over a low again
Easy to see for a someone
Whose soul can bleed

Who am I to overrule
Believers at the wonder wall
Some illusions come undone
And violently

My train of thoughts
Keep on hauling me over a low again
Easy to see for a someone
Whose soul can bleed

So far astray
When all comes to all
You’ll never be satisfied
You might as well let go

9. Seal Of Woven Years

Pull the trigger now
If you’re craving a hero
Or say life after death
Was it you or was it me
Who had to fake
Implementation
Of a lonely heart
So warm and oh so weak

My fractured eyes
In the mold below
The fattest lies
Hold your needs

Wait for the morning
Come a different day
Carry the weight of all
You say is wrong
We would both deny
There is a secret fate
A seal of woven years
Of waiting flying by

Rush my head
Into your wall of complaints
And crush me softly
Like you crushed yourself asunder
You better leave me

Now go
For my soul was sold
For a rainy day
But it’s not too late
For a full retreat

10. Pt. I: Incubus

There was a time when I was young
A boy with bold ambitions
There was a time when I could tell the crooked from the wicked one

There was a song that someone sung
A hint of recognition
There was a time I knew you well enough to know you won’t be gone

Come with me tonight
Tell me how it feels to be alive

There was a time I had respect
A name, a reputation
There was a time when I could watch myself without being disgraced

Come with me tonight
Let us find a place where we can hide

Come into the light
Let me show you how we stay alive

(instrumental)

(spoken)
The word incubus means to lie on,
and it was believed that any heavy feeling in bed,
such as a weight pressing down on your chest,
especially accompanied by nightmares,
was a sure sign that an incubus had attempted to have a nocturnal intercourse with you.
Given the religious fervor of the middle ages,
there’s not all together surprising that the idea of a demon lover, was believed to account of this phenomenon

11. Pt. II: So Long

[Roy]
A minute more, till the light of day is seen, lay down,
I know you must be nearly there
A bloody kiss and the vision of a dream
For the last of your days in the sun

[Simone]
In the white light I am calm
Yet peculiarly cold
Silent slumber and wide awake
Lord have mercy on my soul

[Choir, Roy] So long your sorrow begone
[Simone] Show me how it feels to be alive
[Choir, Roy] No more denial
[Roy] So long
[Simone] Let us find a place where we can hide

[Roy]
You fed me long, and my God, you fed me well
Sleep tight, this day belongs to you my dear
And I am bound like a beast onto its prey
We are one of a kind, you and I

[Simone]
Pale moon wonder, I’m wide awake
Lord have mercy on my soul

[Choir, Roy] So long your sorrow begone
[Simone] Show me how it feels to be alive
[Choir, Roy] No more denial
[Roy] So long
[Simone] Show me all the splendors of the night

[Choir] So long
[Roy] A little last of your attention
[Choir] So long
[Roy] This fluctuates your mind
[Choir] See me
[Roy] The God of your imagination
[Choir] See me
[Roy] Come with me tonight

[Guitar solo]

[Roy, Simone] So long your sorrow begone
[Roy] Show me how it feels to be alive
[Roy, Simone] No more denial, so long

12. Pt. III: All Is Over

[Simone]
I am the hole in your broken heart
I am the reason we all depart

[Choir] Bye, all is over
[Simone] Ah!
[Roy] What if all is over
[Choir] Bye, all is over
[Simone] Ah!

13. Pt. IV: Dissection

Life in slow review
I see it with my eyes
Deeper down and further back
The storm reveals a hidden track
The sun is coming through

Down by a lake as a child without a fear
When the mother’s warm embrace
Made a haven in the maze
Those were the moments
These were my days

14. Once Upon A Time

I am scorning this heavenly scheme
With a stench of destruction
I’m a reaper of beautiful dreams
And she knows I’m on the edge, sacrament!

[Whispers] Push, please push me over

Tell me once upon a time
I close my eyes and see myself reborn
[Choir] Right in the line
I won’t stay to stand in line
Or wait for god to shine all over me
I wait for the storm

I am you and I know that you learn (yearn? burn?)
You and I have a lesson to the(?) end of the world
then we talk, remember we hide
then so what
the human race suffocates

[Whispers] Leave me breathless

Tell me once upon a time
I close my eyes and see myself reborn
[Choir] Right in the line
I won’t stay to stand in line
Or wait for god to shine all over me
I wait for the storm
I wait for the storm
I wait for the storm

Move along
Through the ashes of a dream
Move along
I see myself with you again

Tell me once upon a time
I close my eyes and see myself reborn
[Choir] Right in the line
I won’t stay to stand in line
Or wait for god to shine all over me
I wait for the storm
