KING ALICE

 

[INTRO]

Hail, All Hail!

Hail, All Hail!

 

[VERSE 1]

She'll never kneel to anyone

She knows just how it must be done

No one can tell her how to change

She'll be the first 'cause that's her way

King Alice, she holds the throne now

 

Hail, All Hail!

Hail!

 

[VERSE 2]

She holds her head up to the sky

Standing tall with virtue and some pride

Confidence is her first and last name

She is not a Queen, she's a King

King Alice, the mighty warrior

 

[BRIDGE]

Rising from the wreckage of her youth (She always knew that)

Bearing scars of memories from the past (She'd overcome it)

She arose with strength and clear resolve (She holds the throne now)

And defined the new path she would follow

 

[INSTRUMENTAL]

(She always knew that)

(She'd overcome it)

 

Hail, All Hail!

Hail, All Hail!

 

[VERSE 3]

She'll never bring herself down (no)

Upon her head she wears a crown (oh yeah, yeah)

Don't need no permission from anyone at all

She is sovereign, she's in her, her kingdom hall

King Alice, bow down before her

 

SNAKE IN THE GRASS

 

[VERSE 1]

Here comes some trouble

I know that look in your eyes

You slide up to me, easy-sleazy

But I see through your disguise

 

Your eyes upon me

I feel the heat of your gaze

You're coiled and ready, baby

But I will not be your prey

 

[CHORUS]

You're like a snake in the grass, babe

I see you lyin' in wait

You're like a snake in the grass now, baby, baby

I ain't gonna make that mistake (no)

 

[VERSE 2]

Your past is littered

With those you've trapped on the way

I know you're thinking, maybe, maybe

That I'll end up just the same

 

Your forked tongue's lyin'

Some soothing sweet seductions-sssssssss

Don't try to wrap around me, baby

I'm just gonna kick you away

 

[CHORUS]

 

[BRIDGE]

This ain't my first go-round

I see you lyin' there

All coiled up, waiting for your next big score

But I've been there before

I ain't gonna make that mistake, no

 

[SOLO]

 

[CHORUS OUT]

You're like a snake in the grass, babe

I see you lyin' in wait

You're like a snake in the grass now, baby, baby

I ain't gonna make that mistake

I ain't gonna make that mistake

I ain't gonna make that mistake

OPEN ROAD

 

[VERSE 1]

I'm sick and tired of sitting here

I'm on the wrong side of these windows

I've watched the wet paint dry

As my life passes by

These boots are walkin' cross the threshold

 

[PRE-CHORUS 1]

Hey, yo

The clock has spun, it's time to go

Ain't no sense in collecting dust

Grab your things, let's hit the open road

 

[VERSE 2]

Don't need no map, no GPS

The road can find it's own way there 

Two roads diverged and I

I took the road less travelled by

And that has made for all the difference

 

[PRE-CHORUS 2]

Hey, yo

The clock has spun, it's time to go

Ain't no sense in collecting dust

Grab your things, fire up machine and

 

[CHORUS 1]

Point the wheels and hit the throttle

I don't know where I'll be tomorrow

I got a full tank of gas

We'll see what comes to pass

You'll find me on the open road (yeah)

 

[VERSE 3]

I'm chasing dreams on western winds

Looking for places that I've never been

I chase the setting sun

I ride to meet the dawn

I'm here today, tomorrow will be gone

 

[PRE-CHORUS 2]

[CHORUS 2]

Point the wheels and hit the throttle

I don't know where I'll be tomorrow

I got a full tank of gas

We're gonna see what comes to pass

You'll find me on the open road (yeah)

 

[SOLO]

 

[PRE-CHORUS 2]

[CHORUS 1 OUT]

Point the wheels and hit the throttle

I don't know where I'll be tomorrow

I got a full tank of gas

We'll see what comes to pass

You'll find me on the open road (yeah)

 

GAME ON

[VERSE 1]

Well everybody knows, it's just the way it goes

There can only be one, who when it's said done

Is left standing, on the mountain

 

Many are those, our now and former foes

Who came and tried to take our mighty throne, usurpers

Yet we crushed 'em

 

[VERSE 2]

Standing tall and bright, a beacon in the night

But as a moth to flame, our foes desire the same

Their lusting, is to take it

 

So we never for a moment let our guard down

Like a lion ready to pounce, we're warriors

Locked and loaded (hey!)

 

[CHORUS]

If you think you're ready, we say "Game On!"  (Game On, yeah, hey!)

If you want a challenge, we say "Game On!"  (yeah) 

Anytime you're ready, bring it on

It's our house, we're gonna take you down

BOOM!!

 

[VERSE3]  

So don't make the mistake to wager on the stakes

'Cause when it's said and done, you know we'll be the one

Who's standing, we'll be standing

 

At the sounding of the bell and the breaking of hell

It's all familiar to us, so bring it

Welcome to our home (yeah!)

 

[CHORUS]

 

[BRIDGE]

Whooooaoh.....

Ahhhhhh.....

 

[SOLO 1 & 2]

 

[RE-INTRO]

Yeah... Game On, let's go!

 

[CHORUS]

 

Game On!.....

 

FINIS OMNIUM

[VERSE 1] 

We're a race who lives among the stars

Sailing through infinity on a ship of azure skies

Peering through the void we find ourselves alone

Shouting in the silence, no answer, but still we sail on

 

[BREAK]

 

[VERSE 2]  

A thousand generations born and died aboard

While gliding through the galaxy on our infinite voyage

But now it seems that we've forgotten why we're here

We're passengers, we're stewards, caretakers of the ship

[CHORUS]  

We're primed to fall

Our starship slowly dying

Paratum cadere   {ready to collapse}

Finis Omnium   {The end of us all / The end of all things}

 

The signs abound

Our wounds are self-inflicted

Tempus nostra brevis   {Our time is short}

Finis Omnium 

 

[BREAK]

 

[VERSE 3]  

The wise have tried to warn us time and time again

We're fast nearing the limits of our one and only ship

Anyone can see the systems starting to falter

The time is fast upon us, to save our dying home

 

[CHORUS]  

[BRIDGE] 

There's time to save our starship

But will we save her?

Or will we, or will we lose it all?

 

[SOLO]

Finis Omnium, Finis Omnium

 

[CHORUS OUT]  

We're primed to fall  (We're primed to fall)

Our starship slowly dying

Paratum cadere

Finis Omnium

 

The signs abound (The signs abound)

Our wounds are self-inflicted

Tempus nostra brevis

Finis Omnium............

 

[INSTRUMENTAL OUT]

[Mozart's Requiem - Selections from Sequentia]

Mors slopebit et natora {Death and nature shall be astonished}

Cum resurget creatura {When all creation rises again}

Judicanti responsura {To answer to the Judge}

 

Finis Omnium 

 

Juste judex ultionis {Just and avenging Judge,}

Donum fac remissionis {Grant remission}

Ante diem rationis {Before the day of reckoning.}

 

Finis Omnium 

 

Ingemisco tamquam reus {I groan like a guilty man}

Culpa rubet vultus meus {Guilt reddens my face}

Supplicanti parce, Deus {Spare a suppliant, O God}

 

Finis Omnium

 

Confutatis maledictis {When the accursed have been confounded}

Flammis acribus addictis {And given over to the bitter flames}

Voca me cum benedictis {Call me with the blessed}

 

Finis Omnium.........

 

TEN YEARS GONE

[VERSE 1]

Before you burn the house to the ground

I've got something to say

For years I've been patiently waiting here

As your heart's wandered away

 

But I know - that you're gonna say

That it's all my fault

All the time I was building bridges to you

You built a wall

 

[CHORUS]

I... know... I'm not perfect

Doesn't mean I'm wrong

You... know... the simple truth 

Your heart's ten years gone

 

[VERSE 2]

It seems the only thing you love

Is to wallow in rage

You flee to the safety behind your bars

Lock yourself in your cage

 

But the truth - I've gotta say

What we've both long known

Though we sleep in the same bed each night

You've left me alone

 

[CHORUS]

 

[BRIDGE]

All these years I've tried to remold myself

Into your paragon

Now the truth is this is my black swan song

'Cause you're ten years gone

 

[SOLO]

 

[CHORUS, MODIFIED]

I... know... You... know...

Doesn't mean I'm wrong

You... know... the simple truth 

Your heart's ten years gone

 

[CHORUS OUT]

 

Gone.....

 

I SIT ALONE

[VERSE 1 - LEAD]

Well I can't get out of bed

And I can't seem to remember

How long it's been since the last time that I smiled

 

And I need to wash this hair

But I don't feel like a shower

If I get up I just might shave my head

 

[CHORUS 1]

I hide in the darkness

And bathe in my madness

I sit alone and hide from the light

 

[VERSE 2 - BG HARMONY ROUND]

Sitting silent in this chamber

Locking the world outside

 

Like cold rain in late November

This heart is dead inside

 

[VERSE 2 - LEAD ROUND]

All my strength and will are gone

And my hope's gone even farther

All day in bed, I pray and wait for sleep

 

Broken dreams are all I have

But I don't want them no longer

Just reminders of the wasteland of my life

 

[CHORUS 2]

I hide in the darkness

And bathe in my madness

I sit alone and hide from the light  (hide from the light)

 

I build my defenses

And make false pretenses

I sit alone just waiting to die

 

[BREAKDOWN]

Unanswered questions

Feed my depression

No redemption

I sit alone

 

DO IT AGAIN

[VERSE 1]

Be what you wanna be

See what you wanna see

Won't get a chance to do it again

Do what you gotta do

I leave it up to you

Let's turn around and do it again

 

[CHORUS 1]

'Cause I need a friend, I need a lover

Just call my name and I'll be there, yeah

 

[VERSE 2]

Say what you gotta say

Get to it right away

You won't get a chance to say it again

Go if you gotta go

Act fast don't move slow

Let's turn around and do it again

 

[CHORUS 2]

'Cause I need a friend, I need a lover

Just call my name and I'll be there

So much of each other still left to discover

But we'll turn around and do it again...

 

[BREAK]

We'll do it again...

Let's do it again, yeah-yah

We'll do it again, again...

Here we go!

 

[INSTRUMENTAL / SOLO]

 

[VERSE 1, reprise softly]

Now be what you wanna be

And see what you wanna see

You won't get a chance to do it again

And do what you gotta do

I leave it up to you

Let's turn it around and do it again, again, again

 

[CHORUS 3]

'Cause I need a friend, I need a lover

Just call my name and I'll be there  (I'll be there)

So much of each other still left to discover

But we'll turn around and we'll do it again

 

HE SHOULD BE DEAD

[VERSE 1]

There was this friend I had way back in high school

That guy held all the cards, I mean it, this dude was cool

But no-one's seen him now, I guess for fifteen years

The rumors say he's dead, at least that's what I hear, yeah

 

[BREAK]

 

[VERSE 2]

I met some old friends for some beers the other day

One said he heard our friend had died in the CIA

But then the others said they'd heard the KGB

No-one seemed to know the facts, but he was dead, they all agreed

 

[BRIDGE]

And then just like a ghost, he walked into the room...

 

Oh man! Ahh dude, I heard you were dead!

Naw, come on man, sit down, let me buy you a beer

Oh wow, it is so good to see you man

Well how the hell've you been?! Hey!

 

[SOLO]

 

[CHORUS]

He should be dead (dead)

He should be dead (dead)

I hate to admit it man, but that's what everyone said

 

He should be dead (dead)

I heard you were dead (dead)

I can't believe it man, well how the hell ya been

 

He should be dead (dead)

He should be dead (dead)

I can't believe it man, it's so good to see you again

 

He should be dead (dead)

I heard you were dead (dead)

I can't believe it man

Well how the hell, well how the hell ya been?!
