Hear No Evil

Lyrics: T. Grose Music: T. Grose / T. Yatras

Watched the news today
Another preacher sinned
Yet all the while he’s praying for our souls
He’ll save us from the fire

Do as they say
“Protecting us”, betraying trust
All lies
To help us sleep at night

CHORUS:
If we hear no evil, we will fear no evil
Close our eyes and turn away
If we speak no evil, we will seek no evil
Banish what we say
If we hear no evil, we will fear no evil
Close your mind – it goes away
If we see no evil, there can be no evil
No evil here…

Soliders killed today
A holy war or something more?
Agendas unknown – truth or lie?

A world away
Neglected cries, a child dies unseen
Never reach our TV screens

REPEAT CHORUS

SOLO: LT / LT / MARK

We look the other way
Oblivious in shrouded bliss
All doing what we’re told
Believing all we see

Behind the smiles
Pretty lies that open eyes can see
Wake up
It’s down to you and me

REPEAT CHORUS


Set In Stone

Lyrics: T. Grose Music: T. Grose / T. Yatras

Staring out beyond the shadows
To see a world of faces all the same
And find the light behind those darkened eyes
And realise the skies are more than grey

PRE-CHORUS:
Got the hunger but we’re wanting more
Forever reaching higher
Remember what we’re fighting for
The writing on the wall is

CHORUS:
Set In Stone
Set In Stone

Ghosts of the past now far behind me
Follow the path towards a brighter day
Now a fire lights inside those darkened eyes
Crucify the lies of yesterday

On A Night Like This

(LYRICS UNAVAILABLE DUE TO COPYRIGHT RESTRICTIONS)

On a drive home from a support with Nightwish, I stopped in to get a snack. While I was eating, Kylie Minogue’s “On A Night Like This” came over the speakers and the rusty cogs in my brain started to turn as I remembered back to when Dungeon covered Blondie’s “Call Me”. Covering a Kylie song would be even more screwed up, I thought, and laughed about it all the way home. I told the rest of the guys about it and instead of beating me senseless and calling me an idiot, they all went “sure OK”. The next thing we know, me and TY are quickly putting down tracks for the song to see how it would turn out. As you can hear, it turned out great and it’s since gotten national mainstream airplay in Australia and tens of thousands of plays on our MySpace page! See where our stupid ideas get us?


Through The Fire (live)

Lyrics: T. Grose Music: T. Grose / T. Yatras

Watch another fortune fade away
Another dream cast to the wind
Chronos waits to seize the day
So play his game and play to win

CHORUS:
Take hold of life – walk through the fire
Sometimes it seems like time is slipping away
Take hold of life – walk through the fire
Don’t waste your life when time is slipping away

Like the golden goose that never lays
Always waiting for the sign
Time to see it’s time to be
Release the hero, free to fly

REPEAT CHORUS

SOLO: MARK / LT / LT+MARK (HARMONY)

Search inside to find the truth
Circumstance won’t come to you
Be the one you want to be
Live your life to live your dreams

REPEAT CHORUS x2


Going Down (live)

Words: T. Grose Music: T. Grose / T. Yatras

“Judge me for who I am
Don’t like me for what I’m not”

In every aspect of my life
Talk the talk and take the blame
Stand up for what I feel is right
And feel no shame

I’m a sinner, but I’m a winner
Take no shit from anyone
Speak my mind and do the time
For my views

CHORUS:
Going down – I stand behind the choices I make
Going down – Be they wrong or right
Going down – I see fires of hell below me
Live and die an honest man
So take me away…

Every day another test
Run the gauntlet, walk the line
So live your life to be the best
Every time

Not a rebel or the devil
No false facade, I’m true to me
Stand up to the bastards
And know I’m free

SOLO: LT+MARK / LT

REPEAT CHOURS x2
