Track Name: Masquerade
Verse 1:

These metronome men and their clockwork careers
They dream the same dreams
They fear the same fears
What ever happened to all of those years?
Just a gold pocket watch
For all of that blood, sweat, toil and tears

Pre-Chorus:

All that glitters can never be gold
All that shimmers can always be sold
All that differs can never be told

Chorus:

Masquerade …
In this city of dreams
Masquerade …
It’s not all what it seems
Masquerade …
Watch the people go round
Masquerade …
In this carousel town

Verse 2:

These harlequin harlots
And their festival flair
Fake smiles, fake _______
Fake nails, and fake hair
What ever happened to joy and despair?
Just an old broken mask
For all of that faith, hope, love, and care

Pre-Chorus:

All that glitters can never be gold
All that shimmers can always be sold
All that differs can never be told

Chorus:

Masquerade …
In this city of dreams
Masquerade …
It’s not all what it seems
Masquerade …
Watch the people go round
Masquerade …
In this carousel town

Bridge:

Where is my angel?
Where is he now?
I’ve written my (magnum) opus
And the ink’s all but run out

Chorus:

Masquerade …
In this city of dreams
Masquerade …
It’s not all what it seems
Masquerade …
Watch the people go round
Masquerade …
In this carousel town
Track Name: Broken Man
Verse 1:

When I look into your eyes
As you’re staring back at me
I shiver in your void
So cold and so empty

Verse 2:

I gasp a little breath
The words still on my lips
The air feels silent cold
Against my fingertips

Pre-Chorus:

And I don’t know what to say
And I don’t know what to do
To bring you back to life
From this death/depth you’ve fallen into

Chorus:

For all the battles that we win
The wars that we lose
The blood still on your sword
The dust still on your boots
As you walk out of my life
As you fall out of my hands
I wonder just which step
Made you a broken man

Verse 3:

When I hold your calloused hands
As you’re gripping tight to me
I shudder in your grasp
So hard and so angry

Verse 4:

I cry a little tear
The pain still in my eyes
The sadness in my soul
All bundled up inside

Pre-Chorus:

And I don’t know what to say
And I don’t know what to do
To bring you back to life
From this death/depth you’ve fallen into

Chorus:

For all the battles that we win
The wars that we lose
The blood still on your sword
The dust still on your boots
As you walk out of my life
As you fall out of my hands
I wonder just which step
Made you so broken

Bridge:

I know the road is long
And I know heaven’s far away
But I know that you’ll carry on
And come back to me someday

Chorus:

For all the battles that we win
The wars that we lose
The blood still on your sword
The dust still on your boots
As you walk out of my life
You fall out of my hands
I wonder just which step
Made you so …

Outro:

I can be the love
I can be the life
I can be the heaven
You’ve come so far to find

I can be the victory
That makes you strong and whole
I can be the lasting peace
That mends your broken soul
Track Name: Now or Never
Verse 1:

Don't patronize me
Don't hold my hand
Don't analyze me
You don't understand

Pre-chorus:

I may want you
But I don't need you
I may love you
But I see right through you
I may not have you
But I'll still be

Chorus:

No more waiting
No more debating
It's now or never
Say you love me
Or set me free

Verse 2:

Don't aggrandize me
Don't hold me high
Don't paralyze me
Cause you can't decide

Pre-chorus:

I may want you
But I don't need you
I may love you
But I see right through you
I may not have you
But I am free

Chorus:

No more waiting
No more debating
It's now or never
Say you love me
Or set me free

Bridge:

[Vocal melody]

Chorus:

No more waiting
No more debating
It's now or never
Say you love me
Or set me free
Track Name: Russian Roulette
Verse 1:

You were sharp as a knife
You were quick as a whip
Never valued your life
Always shot from the hip

Verse 2:

You were hard as stone
You were cold as ice
Always got what you’re owed
Never had to ask twice

Pre-Chorus:

There’s no right or wrong
It’s just do or die
When you live by the gun
You’re either dead or alive

Chorus:

You’re riding roughshod
Spurs on
In the hot sun
With your six gun
And your quick draw
Like an outlaw
In the Sheriff’s town

Verse 3:

You were tough as nails
You were strong as steel
Never thought you could fail
No matter the deal

Verse 4:

You were fierce as the wind
You were deep as the sea
You’d neither break nor bend
It’s die or live free

Pre-Chorus:

There’s no right or wrong
It’s just do or die
When you live by the gun
You’re either dead or alive

Chorus:

You’re riding roughshod
Spurs on
In the hot sun
With your six gun
And your quick draw
Like an outlaw
In the Sheriff’s town

You’re playing Russian Roulette
At high noon
By the old saloon
So stake your claim
And take your aim
It’s only five live rounds

Bridge:

You gambled your life
All chips in
But you can never play dice
With the devil and win

Chorus:

You’re riding roughshod
Spurs on
In the hot sun
With your six gun
And your quick draw
Like an outlaw
In the Sheriff’s town

You’re playing Russian Roulette
At high noon
By the old saloon
So stake your claim
And take your aim
It’s only five live rounds

* * *

Note: A standard game of Russian Roulette with a six gun involves only one round for a 1/6 chance of dying. But there are plenty of non-standard variants, including the inverse, with five rounds for a 1/6 chance of living.
Track Name: Puppet Master
Verse 1:
They all hang around you 

Like you've got the answer 

But I know that you don't 

Your lies spread right through them 

And grow like a cancer 

It's fueling your ego 


Verse 2:
You walk down the halls 

Ruling it all 

Your clique at your side 

All vanity and pride 

They all fell in line 

Following every sign 

Never seeing what's inside

Chorus:
You're playing puppeteer 

You're pulling the strings 

The people in your life are just your playthings 

You do it all out of fear 

Cause you're the master puppeteer 


Post-Chorus:
They're not really your friends 

Just a means to an end 

You think that you're playing them 

But you're the one that's being played 


Verse 3:
You put on a mask 

With a smile on your face 

Hidden in disguise 

And they all believed 

While you lied and deceived 

Every single line 


Verse 4:
You laugh and you flirt 

Gossip and hurt 

Insult and blame 

All these petty games 

And they laughed with you 

Hiding all the pain 

Hiding all the pain 


Chorus:
You're playing puppeteer 

You're pulling the strings 

The people in your life are just your playthings 

You do it all out of fear 

Cause you're the master puppeteer 


Post-Chorus:
They're not really your friends 

Just a means to an end 

You think that you're playing them 

But you're the one that's being played 


Bridge:
Someday you will see 

That what you want in your life

Isn't what you need 

And everyone around you knows 

That you will end up all alone 


Chorus:
You're playing puppeteer 

You're pulling the strings 

The people in your life are just your playthings 

You do it all out of fear 

Cause you're the master puppeteer 


Post-Chorus:
They're not really your friends 

Just a means to an end 

You think that you're playing them 

But you're the one that's being played
Track Name: Ambiguous Mess
Verse 1:

You’re like a puzzle that I can’t solve
And yet my whole world revolves around you
Tell me what do you want from me
It’s time you claimed me or set me free

Verse 2:

You carry on like we’re something
And yet I never see a ring on my hand
Tell me what’s it that’s holding you back
Loving you has got my whole life off track

Chorus:

Can’t you see
Your ambiguity
Is tearing me apart
Every day
You feel the need to play
These little games with my heart

Verse 3:

You never seem to make up your mind
Yet you don’t realize the time is now gone
Oh, what is this, oh some kind of test
All I know is you’re an ambiguous mess

Chorus:

Can’t you see
Your ambiguity
Is tearing me apart
Every day
You feel the need to play
These little games with my heart

[repeat 2x]

Bridge:

I’ve waited long enough
For you to make up your mind
This is my ultimatum
No more debating
Come here or get out of my life

Chorus:

Can’t you see
Your ambiguity
Is tearing me apart
Every day
You feel the need to play
These little games with my heart

[repeat 2x]
Track Name: Angel
Verse 1:

He’d known
How I felt since the first day
I’d always wanted more
An angel
Complete with white wings and purity
I was so naïve

Pre-Chorus:

To think that he could ever give me what I need
Empty promises he never intended to keep

Chorus:

My wings
My protection
He set them both to doubt
One by one
He torn each feather out
Until I lay dying
My face toward the sky
Praying that some day again
I would fly

Verse 2:

Does he know
How I found out the truth
How I found out about her
He lied to me
After all of my warnings
About these shattered dreams

Pre-Chorus:

Now I look at life in quite a different way
I feel like everyone’s trying to take my love away

Chorus:

My wings
My protection
He set them both to doubt
One by one
He torn each feather out
Until I lay dying
My face toward the sky
Praying that some day again
I would fly

Bridge:

I hope that you realize
The weight of what you’ve done
Stole my innocence and ability to love
I thought you were heaven sent
Clearly I was wrong
How could you
My best friend with my best friend
All because of you
Now both are gone

Chorus:

My wings
My protection
You set them both to doubt
One by one
You torn each feather out
Until I lay dying
My face toward the sky
Praying that some day again
I would fly
Track Name: Willful Amnesia
Verse 1:
These words are so dear to me 

Blended like a symphony 

They are the last words that he said 

Before I chose to forget 


Verse 2:
These rules are so clear to me 

Woven like a tapestry 

They are the rules that bind my heart 

Dividing end from start 


Pre-chorus:
All my memories surround me 

They take my life away 

And everything I knew is different 

In each and every way 


Chorus:
An "I do" and adieu 

And I'm wanting to forget

No I love you 

When I leave you 

With not a tear 

Of one, single regret 


Verse 3:
The past is now lost to me 

Faded like an inchoate dream 

Though my memories have all but gone 

Deep inside love still lingers on 


Pre-chorus:
All my memories surround me 

They take my life away 

Everything is different 

In each and every way 


Chorus:
An "I do" and adieu 

And I'm wanting to forget 

No I love you 

When I leave you 

With not a tear 

Of one, single regret 


Bridge:
I will always love you 

I'll never leave you 

You and I, together 

For now and forever 

I'll never love you 

I'll will always leave you 

You and I, never 

Meant to be, ever 


I love you 

I loved you 

Always and forever 

I love you 

I loved you 

Together, you and I 


Chorus:
An "I do" and adieu 

And I'm wanting to forget 

That I love you 

When I leave you 

With not a tear 

Of one, single regret 


Outro:
I don't regret it 

I just have to forget 

All we've known 

It's just willful amnesia 

And it's gone 

And it's gone
Track Name: The Prayer
I pray
Lord praised
I pray to save us all

I pray
Lord save
Save us all from ourselves

Alleluia, Alleluia, Alleluia, Alleluia
Save us from ourselves

Plead on your knees
Fallen in defeat
One day all will come

Alleluia, Alleluia, Alleluia, Alleluia
One day all will come

Someday we will all be sleeping
On the other side of the ground
Nothing will have meaning
Until our faith in love is found

Oh, our faith unites us all
Oh, Lord please make us whole

Alleluia, Alleluia, Alleluia, Alleluia
Lord, please save us all
Lord, please make us whole
Track Name: One
Verse 1:

Sleep, it eludes me
But I’m not tired
Your voice carries me
And I feel alive

Pre-Chorus:

Sweet melody
I long to hear your harmony
When we write our song
Please never leave
I can’t sing alone
No, I don’t know what to do ...

Chorus:

Without you, here
Guiding my heart
A voice can never stand alone
Two must become one
Become one

Verse 2:

I’ll wait for the dawn to break
And win against the night
When your love delivers me
And brings me back to life

Pre-Chorus:

Sweet melody
I long to hear your harmony
When we write our song
Please never leave
I can’t sing alone
No, I don’t know what to do ...

Without you, here
Guiding my heart
A voice can never stand alone
Two must become one
Become one

Bridge:

Tears may have fallen
But life grew anew
In a garden of our love
We became me and you

Chorus:

You’re here
Guiding my heart
Our voices never stand alone
Two have become one
Become one
Track Name: Sunday Morning
Verse 1:
When did it get so hard
To see a way out of this place 

We stand here bruised and scarred 

Trying so hard 

To keep a smile on our face 


Verse 2:
We carry all this pain 

With us through the night and the day 

When we can't think 

Of anything else to say 

We just turn away 


Pre-chorus:
But I know that where we're going 

Everything is going our way 


Chorus:
When we wake on Sunday Morning 

Everything fills with warm sunshine 

And the whole world wakes with us 

Our love, begins on Sunday Morning 


Verse 3:
Now it's all in the past 

Everything's perfect 

Here at last 

Now that our lives are simple and clean 

We've finally broken free 


Pre-chorus:
And I know that where we're going 

Everything is going our way 


Chorus:
When we wake on Sunday Morning 

Everything fills with warm sunshine 

And the whole world wakes with us 

Our love, begins on Sunday Morning 


Bridge:
And through it all 

We kept on fighting, on 

Through the things that try to bring us down 

They're nowhere near us now 

We've made it to the dawn 


Chorus:
When we wake on Sunday Morning 

Everything fills with warm sunshine 

And the whole world wakes with us 

Our love, begins on Sunday Morning 

It's a brand new morning

In my mind
Come to me
Come to me
Come here and find me
Bring me out of hiding

Into the warmth
Into your arms
And find my way home

Hide and seek
Finding me
With all this uncertainty
In my heart
Come to me

Come here and find me
Bring me out of hiding

Into your arms
And find my way home

We can find our way

Into the warmth
Into your arms
And find our way home

Chorus:

This is where I belong
This is where you belong
This is where we belong
You and I are home

[Repeat 2x]
