Track Name: Son's of Thunder
The air is heavy and the lights are low
And I don’t think I’m gonna make it home
Have a strange feeling that something’s not right
A feeling that it gonna rain tonight

The darkness is getting closer
A feel the pressure building

Look around there’s no one to be seen
I’m sure as hell there’s someone after me
The hair is standing on the back of my neck
Palms are sweaty there’s no turning back

The darkness is getting closer
I hear the sons of thunder

Cast a shadow – across the full moon – going back through time
Voices calling – from far off places – vague sound so distant

The fog is heavy and the tide is high
Take the back route keep out of sight
Hear the raven’s call a foreboding sign
Superstition got me out of my mind

Keep moving forwards – there’s no turning back – keep out of sight avoid being seen
Keep moving forwards – there’s no turning back – keep out of sight avoid being seen

The darkness is getting closer
A feel the pressure building

The air is heavy and the lights are low
And I don’t think I’m gonna make it home

The darkness is getting closer
I hear the sons of thunder

Cast a shadow – across the full moon – going back through time
Voices calling – from far off places – vague sound so distant
Cast a shadow – across the full moon – going back through time
Voices calling – from far off places – vague sound so distant

Time – time – time – time - across the full moon – going back through time
Time – time – time – time - from far off places – vague sound so distant
Keep moving forwards – there’s no turning back – keep out of sight avoid being seen
Keep moving forwards – there’s no turning back – keep out of sight avoid being seen
Track Name: Run With the Wolves
Hawks call to their brothers across the hillside
Strange forces conspire to confound our compasses

This hatred is out of control – how far have we fallen?
This hatred is out of control – how far have we fallen?
This hatred is out of control – how far have we fallen?
This hatred is out of control – and we spend so much time reminiscing

The smell of fear manifests in rhetoric
The boiling turmoil will give rise to painful rebirth

This hatred is out of control – how far have we fallen?
This hatred is out of control – how far have we fallen?
This hatred is out of control – how far have we fallen?
This hatred is out of control – and we spend so much time reminiscing

How far have we fallen? And we spend so much time, spend so much time.
How far have we fallen? And we spend so much time, spend so much time.
How far have we fallen? And we spend so much time, spend so much time.
How far have we fallen?
HOW – FAR – HAVE – WE – FALLEN – FALLEN

I run with the wolves

Damn the hawks and damn the doves I run with the wolves
Damn the hawks and damn the doves I run…
Track Name: Dead End
Escape from the city to the cradle - the cradle that gave us life
Adapt and recognise the changes – within the limits of earth
We stand at a crossroads – for all future generations

The same cannot be maintained the strain
The same cannot be maintained
Modify to maintain

We have to adapt to profound changes – the changes that are coming
Close to the end of – this road is a dead end

The same cannot be maintained the strain
The same cannot be maintained
Modify to maintain

You cannot hide
From the changes
That are coming

Turn the page for a new beginning – with opportunity in mind
There’s much to be had beyond comfort – give freely and receive in kind
Cast off the shackles
We stand at a crossroads

Stark choices remain
Stark choices remain
