Track Name: Super Human
Super Human

I closed both my eyes, and turned away from the TV screens,
Somebody else will stop the screams.
I held onto my head, dropped to my knees,
Began to pray.
Somebody else will save the day.

Super human, you've always been.
Super human, inside of me.
Super human, we've always been....
Yeah,
Super human.
Track Name: Looking For Life
Looking For Life

Been so long flying around in space
Looking for something new, trying to save the human race
All communications died many years ago
Now were drifting onwards towards the final show

I have a photograph and a letter that you wrote
I keep them somewhere safe beside your dying hopes
Into the endless night, we make our endless flight
Reading the signs.
Maybe it'll be alright...

Looking for life, we'll find our way
Looking for life...

Reaching out from another time
Loved ones left behind.
We're reaching out to another world, our faded flag unfurled,
And we're looking for life, we'll find our way,
And we're looking for life, losing count of the days.
Can we survive, the madness creeps in,
Am I alive, or dying within?
Looking for life

Night time bleeds to daytime, and daytime bleeds to night.
I fell upon my sword my friends, the day I took this flight.

Into the endless night, we make our endless flight
Reading the signs.
Maybe it'll be alright...
Looking for life, we'll find our way,
And we're looking for life, losing count of the days.
Can we survive, the madness creeps in,
Am I alive, or dying within?
Looking for life
Track Name: Day Number One
Day Number One

We spend our lives trying to apologise
To change what we have no control of,
Every day is laden with regrets of yesterday
Tomorrow means we're just a day older
Out from the cracks where the light filters down
We feel the weight of our shadows...
We drink the moments like an out of date wine
Never reading whats on the label
We break the bread, fall upon the feast
But we never recollect the table
Learn from mistakes; it’s the time-proven way
Into the deep from the shallows
Out from the cracks where the light filters down
We fear the weight of our shadows...

I want to fly back to day number one
No-one will break me when I’m free...

Your love is testing me in every single way
Raking through the walls of emotion
You tear the skin, the screaming soul within is silenced
By the depths of your ocean
Out from the cracks where the light filters down
We fear the weight of our shadows...

I want to fly back to day number one
No-one will break me when I’m free
This is my chance to prove who I am
Open these doors, let me breathe
Let me breathe.

Can you hear me?
I want to fly back to day number one
No-one will break me when I’m free
This is my time to tear down the signs
Open these doors, let me see

I want to fly back, when I’m free
It's my time, if this is who I am?
Just let me see
Hey, out from the cracks, out from the cracks.
We feel the weight, we feel the weight,
We feel, let me tell you.
Out from the cracks where the lights falling down,
We fear the weight of our shadows.
Track Name: Mega City One
Mega City One

Under a dying sun, limestone tears run from
The concrete walls that encase this monster.
A seething city of eight hundred million
Lawless creatures - remnants from the war.
We made our judges, we made our rules.
We re-created a man of justice - gave him reason,
Gave him tools.
No-more conscience to blur our vision,
Extract the crime - a clean incision...

Mega city one, where is the law?
Mega city one, what are you waiting for?

Fifty thousand criminals living inside each city block.
One hand reaches for the law-giver as one hand begins to knock...
I'll hear your version, I don’t fear vengeance
I'll take your statement - prepare for sentence...
Mega city one, where is the law?
Mega city one, what are you people waiting for?
I'm the judge and jury - a killer at your door
Mega city one...

I decide if you testify, make your choice
Tell the truth or die.
I'll blow you into a million atoms and forget your name
As you drift forever in a nuclear wasteland...

Mega city one, where is the law?
Mega city one, what are you people waiting for?
I'm the judge and jury - a killer at your door
Mega city one...
Track Name: Fly Higher
Fly Higher

There is a place hidden deep in our hearts,
Where our futures are born and our dreams burst into life.
Free when you're young learning how to spread your wings
You can fly to the sun, you can hear angels sing.
So fly higher, and break barriers.

Pull at your chains if you can't find your keys
They'll deny you your rights, they will never set you free
Come on, fly higher, break barriers
You'll find your way..

Never again, running away from a fight
Open your eyes, look to the skies and take flight.
You must fly higher, you will break barriers.
You must fly higher.

Never again, running away from a fight
Open your eyes, look to the skies and take flight.
You must fly higher, you will break barriers.
Track Name: Say Something
Say Something

So much waiting, not enough time
All you bring me - not enough love.
Promises sting bitter heartache
Dreams of silence - no more wanting...

I walked down that line every single time,
And all you give to me is desperate lines of wanting something…

Is this living, is this breathing, is this dreaming?
Just say something
Am I being, am I seeing, am I feeling?
Just say something.

We are falling through dimensions
Never meeting, never ending
I walked down that line every single time,
And all you give to me is desperate lines of wanting something
Give me something stronger to pacify my hunger
Keep the wolves at bay until I finally meet my maker.

Is this living, is this breathing, is this dreaming?
Just say something
Am I being, am I seeing, am I feeling?
Just say something.

Is this living, is this breathing, is this dreaming?
Just say something
Am I being, am I seeing, am I feeling?
Just say something.
Something
Something
Just say something
Just say something
Track Name: Bending Light
Bending light

It's been my life long passion
Since the day that I was born
To make a difference to what is and was before
I have no angels wings, I have no super powers
I came with no instructions but I'll keep you hooked for hours
Trying the impossible, always the same with you
Nothing is good enough - you've got me...

Bending light, flying upside down
Taking out the night, stealing Neptune’s crown

It's been my hearts desire to keep you satisfied
To stoke your inner fire, to go that extra mile
I am no super hero but still you ask of me
To burn the morning sky and boil the seven seas
I gave you everything but more and more's required
I'm not that slave you bought, I'm not that gun you hired
Trying the impossible - always the same with you
Nothing is good enough, you've got me..
Bending light, flying upside down
Taking out the night, stealing Neptune’s crown
Rising up to fight things I cannot see
Bending light, someone set me free.

I am no super hero but still you ask of me
To burn the morning sky and boil the seven seas
Trying the impossible - always the same with you
Nothing is good enough, you've got me...
Bending light
Bending light
Bending light
Bending light
Hey!
Bending light, flying upside down
Taking out the night, stealing Neptune’s crown
Rising up to fight things I cannot see
Bending light, someone set me free
Track Name: Rising
Rising

We are precious stones in the river
Being worn away.
The tidal wave of life cuts us like a knife and shapes our future path,
On which we must stay.

We're rising, we're rising again.

We live in a dream state but beneath this toughened skin,
Embers burn.

We're rising, we're rising again.
Face the facts, we've got nothing to lose
Walking like the dead while we're dead in our shoes.
Given any choice are you ready to choose?
You take it lying down or you're blowing a fuse.

We are mindless souls driven by hands we cannot see,
We're out of control.
We're rising, we're rising again.

We live in a dream state but beneath this toughened skin,
Embers burn.
We're rising, we're rising
Rising, we're rising..
Again, and again, and again...
Track Name: Touch The Sky
Touch The Sky

Ectopic beats born through anxiety,
My heart skips another beat and I’m far away.
Into the blackening blue, I dream I’m flying with you.
Higher and higher we climb, I never want,
To wake...

Day breaks and I rise again.
We're all broken bones in the end.
Still i believe we can be somewhere we need to be.
I don’t understand it, why, when I hold my hands up?
I believe that we can touch the sky...

One life, don’t waste it.
Time washes by, but I know we can make it.
One life, it's not for taking.
This is our time, don’t go and break it.

I don’t understand it, why, when I hold my hands up?
I, I believe that we can touch the sky...
We can fly.
We can touch the sky, we can touch the sky.
Yeah, we can touch the sky you and I,
We can touch the sky
Yeah.
Track Name: Superpower
Superpower

Sit up, listen, we are both to blame
Give up, you lose, my rules, my game
Onward we go, fight across the globe
The day will come when no-one owns the road
I wish I was the superpower, I'd put you in your place

You know? It's strange - we're not that different
We are the same, but differently driven
I'll find you, I'll break you, our offer is the same deal,
Don’t save me, come join me, now lets see if you can kneel?
I wish I was the superpower, I'd put you in your place...

I call across the nation to have my finest hour
My chosen occupation to be the superpower

So turn the wheel, face the heat, it
All comes down to this..
I am free and you will be powerless to me.
I wish I was the superpower,
I'd put you right back in your place,
It's getting closer every hour,
I can see the fear on your face...

I call across the nation to have my finest hour
My chosen occupation to be the superpower
I call across the nation to have my finest hour
My chosen occupation to be the superpower
