paschendale
journeyman / age of innocence... how old?
no more lies

live

there's a darkened sky before me
there's no time to prepare
salvage a last horizon
but no regrets from me

maybe i'll be back some other day
to live again just who can say
in what shape or form that i might be
just another chance for me

a hurried time no disgrace
instead of racing to conclusion
and wishing all my life away
no-one can stop me now

time is up it couldnt last
but there's more things i'd like to do
i'm coming back to try again
someday maybe i'll wait till then

no more lies
no more lies
no more lies
no more lies

they're all sitting at my table
talking tall and drinking wine
their time is up just like me
but they just dont know it yet

so just a word of warning
when you're in your deepest dream
there's nothing you can hide from
i've got my eye on you

the clock is fast the hour is near
eventful past is everclear
my life is set the time is here
i think i'm coming home

no more lies
no more lies
no more lies
no more lies

a hurried time no disgrace
instead of racing to conclusions
and wishing all your life away
no-one can stop me now

time is up it couldnt last
but there's more things i'd like to do
i'm coming back to try again
someday maybe i'll wait till then

no more lies
no more lies
no more lies
no more lies
no more lies

paschendale

orchestral version

in a foreign field he lay
lonely soldier unkown grave
on his dying words he prays
tell the world of paschendale

relive all that he's been through
last communioun of his soul
rust your bullets with his tears
let me tell you 'bout his years

laying low in a blood filled trench
kill tim 'til my very own death
on my face i can feel the falling rain
never see my friends again

in the smoke in the mud and lead
smell the fear and the feeling of dread
soon be time to go over the wall
rapid fire and the end of us all

whistles, shouts and more gun fire
lifeless bodies hang on barbed wire
battlefield nothing but a bloody tomb
be reunited with my dead friends soon

many soldiers eighteen years
drown in mud no more tears
surely a war no-one can win
killing time about to begin

home, far away
from the war, a chance to live again
home, far away
but the war, no chance to live again

the bodies of ours and our foes
the sea of death it overflows
in no man's kand god only knows
into jaws of death we go

crucified as if on a cross
allied troops they mourn their loss
german war propaganda machine
such before has never been seen

swear i heard the angels cry
pray to god no more may die
so that people know the truth
tell the tale of paschendale

cruelty has a human heart
everyman does play his part
terror of the men we kill
the human heart is hungry still

i stand my ground for the very last time
gun is ready as i stand in line
nervous wait for the whistle to blow
rush of blood and over we go

blood is falling like the rain
it's crimson cloak unveils again
the sound of guns can't hid their shame
and so we die on paschendale

dodging shrapnel and barbed wire
running straight at the cannon fire
running blind as i hold my breath
say a prayer symphony of death

as we charge the enemy lines
a burst of fire and we go down
i choke a cry but no-one hears
fell the blood go down my throat

home, far away
from the war, a chance to live again
home, far away
but the war, no chance to live again

see my spirit on the wind
across the lines beyond the hill
friend and foe will meet again
those who died at paschendale

journeyman / age of innocence... how old?
journeyman

electric version

from the red sky of the east
to the sunset in the west
we have cheated death
and he has cheated us

but that was just a dream
and this is what it means
we are sleeping and we'll dream for evermore

and the fragment remains of our memories
and the shadows remain with our hands
deep grey, came to mourn
all the colours of the dawn
will this journeymans day be his last?

i know what i want
and i say what i want
and no one can take it away
i know what i want
and i say what i want
and no one can take it away

but the memory still remains
all the past years not so stange
our winter times are like a silent shroud

and the heartbeat of the day
drives the mist away
and winter's not the only dream around

in your life you may choose desolation
and the shadows you build with your hands
if you turn to the light
that is burning in the night
then the journeyman's day has begun

i know what i want
and i say what i want
and no one can take it away
i know what i want.
and i say what i want
and no one can take it away

in your life you may choose desolation
and the shadows you build with your hands
if you turn to the light
that is burning in the night
then the journeyman's day has begun

i know what i want
and i say what i want
and no one can take it away
i know what i want
and i say what i want
and no one can take it away
					
age of innocence... how old?
one, two, three, four...
hahaha!
oh! they even got the music to go with it, thats lovely!

i can't be compromising in my throughts no more, haha, oh yeah
i can't remember whats the name my anger fills my heart
i can't be sympathising with a new lost fart
hahaha!

i can't prevent my anger fills my heart
i can't be sympathising with a new lost cause
i feel i've lost me patience with the world and all
oh, and the world and...

so we can only get one chance, can we take it
and we only get one life, can't exchange it
can we hold on to what we have, don't replace it
the age of innocence is fading like a dream, oh yeah!

ive lost the place; ive no idea where im going again!

so we can only get one chance, can we take it
and we only get one life, can't exchange it
