In Time

IN TIME

WHEN I WAS A LITTLE BOY, MY MOTHER USED TO TELL ME
IF YOU WANT TO BE ALL YOU CAN BE
YOU CAN'T SIT AND WAIT FOR IT
YOU'VE GOT TO SHOW MOTIVATION,
YOU'VE GOT TO SHOW DESIRE TO ACHIEVE
I TOOK THOSE WORDS INTO PERSPECTIVE
KNOW I'M GOING TO BE ALL I CAN BE

LOST HUMANITY RAGE IS STRONG
FEELINGS OF HATE FEELINGS OF LOVE
TWISTING CONSTANTLY IN HIS MIND
LEAVES HIS GUARD DOWN THE FEELING TO STRONG
TO MANY PEOPLE TO MANY LOST SOULS
WORLDS UNSTABLE WILL THE ALL MIGHTY END IT ALL
WORDS FOREVER CREEPING IN MY MIND
SEEDS PASSED DOWN GENERATIONS GROW
THE WORDS HE SPOKE BECAME ETERNAL, ETERNAL

SECONDS TO MINUTES, MINUTES COME HOURS
DAYS BECOME WEEKS, MONTHS TO YEARS
OH THAT DAY IS COMING NEARER
OH IS COMING NEAR

TO MANY PEOPLE TO MANY LOST SOULS
WORLDS UNSTABLE WILL THE ALL MIGHTY AND IT ALL
WORDS FOREVER CREEPING IN MY MIND
SEEDS PASSED DOWN GENERATIONS GROW
THE WORDS HE SPOKE BECAME ETERNAL, ETERNAL

The Nest

Written By: Shaun Melanson

THE NEST

LAYING, SITTING, WALKING, FALLING THROUGH THAT WORLD
SO MANY THINGS CANNOT BE UNDERSTOOD.
SO I'LL SIT IN MY NEST, WAITING FOR THAT FINAL TEST
THE TEST THAT WILL PROVE TO BE THE VERY BEST
THERE ARE NO ANSWERS, SO ALL I DO IS GUESS
TRY TO GUESS WHAT BROUGHT ME TO THIS MESS

YA CAN YOU FEEL IT, ONE DAY ITS COMEN DOWN ON YOU
THERE'S NOW WAY TO ESCAPE, GOING DOWN DOWN DOWN ONE WORLD

WHEN WILL YOU SEE THAT IT'S NOT JUST A GAME
IT IS A LOVE OF WHAT YOU CLAIM
ITS TIME FOR YOU TO REALIZE WHAT IT IS
ITS ALL ABOUT YOUR FREINDSHIPS

I'VE GOT TO FIND A PLACE WHERE I CAN SEE THE BURNING SKY, (IN YOUR MIND)
IT SEEMS LIKE ALL WILL DIE, MISSING LIFE

I'LL CONFESS EARTH IS THE TEST
A JOURNEY THROUGH THE UNKNOWN
IS THERE LIFE AFTER DEATH
ONLY THOSE WHO PAST THE TEST COULD KNOW
AND KNOWING THAT I WILL SURELY GO
I'LL WAIT PATIENTLY IN MY NEST
FOR THAT FINAL TEST

IT'S ALL BEEN, JUST A GAME ,TO SEE WHERE LIFE WILL TAKE ME IN THE END
I'VE CLAIMED MY RIGHT TO LIVE IN HARMONY

WHEN WILL YOU SEE THAT IT'S NOT JUST A GAME
IT IS A LOVE OF WHAT YOU CLAIM
ITS TIME FOR YOU TO REALIZE WHAT IT IS
ITS ALL ABOUT YOUR FREINDSHIPS

I'VE GOT TO FIND A PLACE WHERE I CAN SEE THE BURNING SKY, (IN YOUR MIND)
IT SEEMS LIKE ALL WILL DIE, MISSING LIFE
