futureal
the angel and the gambler
lightning strikes twice
the clansman
when two worlds collide
the educated tools
don't look to the eyes of a stranger
como esta amigos
futureal
i'm running out of time,
i'm running out of breath
and now it's getting
so i can't sleep at night
in the day, feel like death

i'm getting in far too deep,
i feel them closing in
i've got to say that i'm scared,
i know they'll win
even so, i'm prepared

do you believe, what you hear
can you believe, what you see
do you believe, what you feel

can you believe

what is real ?
futureal
what is real ?
futureal

whenever anyone seems
to treat me like a freak
it makes me see
i'm the only one who feels
that i know what is real?

sometimes it feels like
a game of deadly hide and seek
and when you're reading this,
then i'll be gone
maybe then, you will see

do you believe, what you hear
can you believe, what you see
do you believe, what you feel
can you believe

what is real ?
futureal
what is real ?

the angel and the gambler
roll of the dice
take a spin of the wheel
out of your hands now
so how do you feel
but you're not gonna win
you'd better go back again

do you feel lucky
or do you feel scared
take what luck brings
and be devil may care
but you're down on your luck
and what will the next day bring

adrift on the ocean
afloat in a daydream
or lost in a maze
or blind in the haze
so what does it matter
so why don't you answer
so why did you send
an angel to mend

best make decisions
before it's too late
take all your chances
take hold of the reins
a roll of the dice
ahead of the game again

nothing to lose
but so much to gain
a little danger
it goes without saying
but what do you care
you're gonna go in the end

(repeat)

there's like a hunger
that knocks on your door
you've had a taste of it
still you want more
you've made your mistakes
won't play it the same again

you have been warned
but still you plunge in
you play high stakes
but there's nothing to win
you've only one life
and so many things to learn

the angel on one side
the devil on the other
which path do you take
decisions to make

arrive at the crossroads
you know where you're going
and what if you wait
it may be too late

don't you think i'm the saviour
don't you think i could save you
don't you think i could save your life

(repeat)

lightning strikes twice
i feel the breeze on
my face in expectance
not very long before
the storm reaches here
off in the distance
the lightning flashing again
feel something strong
as the power draws near

it is the rolling of thunder
that scares you
is it the crashing of clouds
that hold fear
but all i know as
i sit in a corner alone
it takes me back
to my childhood again

and as i wait and
i look for an answer
to all the things
going round in my head
i ask myself could it be
a disaste and when
it's maybe threatening
to happen again

as the ominous light draws near
there's a lone dog howls
in the park
all the people hurry inside
as a lightning flash lights dark
the storm is nearly here
only god will know

you're sitting alone you watch
as the wind is blowing treetops
and the swaying rustling leaves
plenty of time to perceive
as you wait for rain to fall
only god knows
the whole sky glows
maybe lightning strikes twice
maybe lightning strikes twice

the clansman
wake alone in the hills
with the wind in your face
it feels good to be proud
and be free and a race
that is part of a clan
and to live in highlands
and the air that you breathe
so pure and so clean

when alone on the hills
with the wind in your hair
with a longing to feel
just to be free

it is right to believe
in the need to be free
it’s a time when you die
and without asking why
can’t you see what they do
they are grinding us down
they are taking our land
that belongs to the clans

not alone with a dream
just a want to be free
with a need to belong
i am a clansman … freedom

it’s a time wrought with fear
it’s a land wrought with change
ancestors could hear
what is happening now
they would turn in their graves
they would all be ashamed
that the land of the free
has been written in chains

and i know what i want
when the timing is right
then i’ll take what is mine
i am the clansman

and i swear to defend
and we’ll fight to the end
and i swear that we’ll never
be taken alive
and i know that we’ll stand
and we’ll fight for our land
and i swear that my bairns
will be born free

and i know what i want
when the timing is right
then i’ll take what is mine
i am the clansman

no. no, we can’t let them take anymore
no we can’t let them take anymore
we’ve the land of the free…
freedom…

it is right to believe
in the need to be free
it’s a time when you die
and without asking why
t you see what they do
they are grinding us down
they are taking our land
that belongs to the clans

and i know what i want
when the timing is right
then i’ll take what is mine
i am the clansman

when two worlds collide
my telescope looks out
into the stars tonight
a little speck of light
seems twice size tonight
the calculations are so fine
can it be growing all the time?

now i can't believe it's true
and i don't know what to do
for the hundredth time
i check for the declination

now the fear starts to grow
even my computer shows
there are no errors in the calculations

now it's happened take no other view
collision course, you must believe it's true
now there's nothing left that we can do

when two worlds collide
the anger and the pain
of all those who remain
two worlds collide
who will be left alive
no place to hide

when two worlds collide
the anger, the pain
of those who remain
when two worlds collide
so who will survive
there's no place to hide
when two worlds collide

now it's happened take no other view
collision course, you must believe it's true
now there's nothing left that we can do

when two worlds collide
the anger, the pain
of all those who remain
two worlds collide
who will be left alive
no place to hide
there's no place to hide
when two worlds collide

the educated tools
i'm an educated fool
so i don't know what it is i'm supposed to do
about this awkward situation
that's been forced down right upon me

as i'm walking down into
on my own into the valley of life
got a lifetime of experience
yeah i've got so much to give

open the page at chapter one
could this just be that life's just begun
forever within your darker thoughts
reflecting on everything you've been taught

never felt this way before
seems that somebody's just opened the door
to the book of life … or is it death
is there ever anyway out

someone's looking down on me
to the very inner core of my soul
they won't tell me what they see
but i really want to know

i want to live my life on my own
i want to lift the unturned stone
i want to walk right into the fire
i want to live out all my desires

do you really wanna be
just another statistic or feel
that you really should aspire
that you really do deserve more

do you ever really feel
that you have so much potential inside
what you really have to give
could be realised so much more

i want to go and see the fire burn
i want to see and feel my world turn
i want to know more there's to learn
i want to pass the point of no return

time will flow
and i will follow
time will go
but i will follow

i want to feel what life's like respond
i want to meet my father beyond
i want to walk right into the light
i want to feel no fear but delight

i want to live my life on my own
i want to lift the unturned stone
i want to walk right into the fire
i want to live out all my desires

time will flow
and i will follow
time will go
but i will follow

don't look to the eyes of a stranger
don't look to the eyes of a stranger
don't look through the eyes of a fool
don't look to the eyes of a stranger
somebody's watching when the night comes down

feel someone's watching you
you gotta get away
is it the first time
you've ever felt so scared

fell the adrenalin pump
your heart begins to race
begin to run now
the sweat runs down your face

don't know which way to turn
you'd better hide yourself
he's getting closer now
you'd better improvise

just hope you never reach
the point of no return
could be the last time
you see the light of day
don't look to the eyes of a stranger
don't look trough the eyes of a fool
don't look to the eyes of a stranger
somebody's watching when the light goes down

como esta amigos
como esta amigo
for the death of those we don't know
shall we kneel and say a prayer
they will never know we care
shall we keep the fires burning
shall we keep the flames alight
shall we try to remember
what is wrong and what is right

no more tears, no more tears
if we live for a hundred years
amigos no more tears

if we don't forget them and
the sacrifice they made
will the wickedness and
sadness come to visit us again
shall we dance the dance in sunlight
shall we drink the wine of peace
shall our tears be of joy
shall we keep at bay the beast

no more tears, no more tears
if we live for a hundred years
amigos no more tears

inside the scream is silent
inside it must remain
no victory, no vanquished
only honor, only pain

no more tears, no more tears
if we live for a hundred years
amigos no more tears

no more tears, no more tears
if we live for a hundred years
amigos no more tears
