Epitaph 04:46
This will be a beautiful end To a wonderful life I've never been lonely I've never been lonely The world is a playground And I'm still a child An innocent patient Let loose in the wild Build me a folly Build me a shrine Let everyone know That this place was mine An ode to my life In memory of my death It'll be my last great work My epitaph Fetch me a blanket I'm getting cold This is not the end That I foretold So free of confusion I wanted a mystery This state of profusion Will make me history
Roulette 04:36
Prosperity Yes it's easy to come by Or so we're told But it's not so easy When everything's been sold We're in the middle of a crisis We all must resolve Yet those who are most affected Had no part in the cause They gambled with our future But they lost Now it's up to us to cover the cost They put it all on red But the outcome was black Now we're the ones who have to pay it back Infallible Nobody can touch them That's what they say They're only fooling themselves now The same lies every day One million is not so substantial When the numbers are so great Now they've turned themselves into something That represents all that we hate
Battle 03:10
Engineer 04:35
Strangers 04:19
Obscurity 03:46
Everyone around me is settling down Pairing off and moving out of town A little place of their own A brand new house to call a home We're worlds apart now Worlds apart now You and me Still nobody knows me like I do Nobody knows me like I do None of this was ever in my plan As I made my way from boy into a man But I'm getting older I'm getting weaker I'm getting tired I was a soldier Now I'm a sleeper That's how I'm wired My face will fall out of the picture When nobody knows me like I do But nobody knows you like I do
Beyond Hope 05:50
We've raised the capital We've built our fleet We have a charter Signed by the virgin queen We're on a mission In the name of trade But in the name of empire We will invade Every penny we make From this ocean estate Is forever lost Every village we take Gets us further away From our purpose It won't be long Before we take control Because freedom and monopoly can't go hand in hand We've got routes to protect We need to own this Earth And we'll fight to our right to exploit it For all it's worth
It's there at your door You don't even know it You couldn't ask for more It's there for you Enjoy the feel of the grass beneath your feet The sun and rain upon your skin When I was young we used to dream of life like this Now you'd rather just stay in You could see it from your room If you'd just open the curtain If you don't get out there soon You'll lose your chance Enjoy the feel of the wind upon your face The birth and death of light in the sky When I was young we used to dream of life like this Now nobody can tell me why You build a prison for yourself Like you can't handle the freedom You build a prison for yourself But you've got the key
Silence 03:30
Ambition 06:04
We were lied to When we were told That we could have it all It's your life It's your decision Anything you want Is yours to have But if you're like me You've been to the bottom But it was not the end It was not the end Just a change of direction Redefining hope Cutting back the scope When your income is not the best It's easy to feel like you've failed Because wealth = success "Does it make you happy?" Is the question that's never asked On this quest towards excess Now I am content To afford to pay the rent And have a little left for wine I've drained all my ambition And fixed my own position I'm consigned to repetition
