On The Rise Lyrics

Hoodwink

We’re alone in your bed, everything has been thought and said we both agree.
Everything feels so right and we both think it’s time to take this one step further.

This has gone through my mind like a million times, it’s like a dream, I feel so close to you. What you said was not true, there’s something I should know.

I trusted you, I believed you, you lied to me again.
I thought I knew that you were true, why did I play this game?
Why did I, why did I play this game?
Why did you lie? You messed up everything!


Now it’s all dead and done, I really hope you had fun
You’re like the edge of a sharp knife
I put my trust into you, you promised me you’d be true
I never thought that you’d fuck up my life

I trusted you, I believed you, you lied to me again.
I thought I knew that you were true, why did I play this game?
Why did I, why did I play this game?
Why did you lie? You messed up everything!


You messed up everything

Why did I, why did I, why did I, why did I, why did I, why did I play this game?
Why did you lie, why did you, why did you lie, why did you, why did you lie, why did you lie to me?

Why did I, why did I, why did I, why did I, why did I, why did I play this game?
Why did you lie, why did you, why did you lie, why did you, why did you lie, why did you lie to me?

This Moment

Close your eyes, let me hold your hand,
Want you to understand what you mean to me.
We are all alone, we’ll watch the stars up in the sky,
Want you in my arms till the end of time.

Why can’t this moment last forever? Why can’t we freeze time and live on?
I wanna love you forever. I wanna care for you, be there for you always.

I love it when you smile, it usually lasts a short while,
But it makes me feel all warm inside.
I wanna breathe you in, I wanna kiss your gentle skin,
I wanna spend the night lying next to you.

Why can’t this moment last forever? Why can’t we freeze time and live on?
I wanna love you forever. I wanna care for you, be there for you always.


I want this moment forever, I wanna be the one that makes you laugh and smile.
I’m happy when we’re together, cause your sweet kiss makes me feel alive.
Three small words that come from deep inside.

Why can’t this moment last forever? Why can’t we freeze time and live on?
I wanna love you forever. I wanna care for you, be there for you always.

Alone In The Dark

The night is dark I’m all alone
I’m underdressed shivering to the bone
Does someone know that I’m here?
Don’t like the thought but I hope the end is near

And I hope the end is near, because I have no fear (I have no fear).
Please take, take me away from here, because I have no fear (I
 have no fear).

I still remember my best friend
That he was taken I just can’t comprehend
We used to walk the streets at night (walk the streets late at night)
We’d sniff it up and we’d look for the odd fight

And I hope the end is near, because I have no fear (I have no fear).
Please take, take me away from here, because I have no fear (I
 have no fear).

The night is dark I’m all alone
Still underdressed shivering to the bone
Nobody cares, I’m just unknown
It’s time to realise that I’ll never have home

I will never … I will never have a home … I will never … I will never have a home
I will never … I will never have a home … I will never … I will never have a home 

And I hope the end is near, because I have no fear (I have no fear).
Please take, take me away from here, because I have no fear (I
 have no fear).

Let’s Move Away

Standing here looking all around, dreaming of finding higher ground
I wanna watch the world go by.

Standing here looking all around, dreaming of finding higher ground,
A place to live, I wanna watch the world go by.

Let’s move away … seeking higher ground
Let’s move away, break free live it out, have fun without a doubt,
Life doesn’t come with a guarantee.


I’m sick of sitting in my room, dreaming myself out of this gloom
I wanna pack my bags and go
So many places far away, if we don’t go I will regret this day
Let’s pack our bags and go …

Let’s move away … seeking higher ground
Let’s move away, break free live it out, have fun without a doubt,
Life doesn’t come with a guarantee.


Let’s move away … seeking higher ground
Let’s move away … seeking higher ground

Let’s move away, break free live it out, have fun without a doubt,
Life doesn’t come with a guarantee

Let’s move away, let’s move away from here, take a risk and face our fear
Let’s go explore the big unknown

Lost In Confusion

Round and round and round like a carousel we go, can’t stop don’t know
Thoughts clog my mind, the mist lies low, I just don’t know.

Open your eyes, remove your disguise, the world is waiting for you
Please say no more, we need to reach the shore, we’re going nowhere.

Lost in confusion, maybe this life is just illusion
Trapped in wisdom, the more we know, the more we don’t know.


Words are too deep, the hills to steep to climb, I’m falling backwards
Please say no more, we need to reach the shore, we’re going nowhere.

Lost in confusion, maybe this life is just illusion
Trapped in wisdom, the more we know, the more we don’t know.


Lost in confusion, it’s all an illusion, the exit-sign lightbulb must have blown.
Caught up in wisdom, why do I not fit in? The more we know, the more we don’t know.

An empty hole, where do we go from here?
When words are useless, where do we turn?

Two Lives Lost

Let’s go out the night is young, let’s go and have some fun
A drink or two won’t do us harm, just hold onto my arm, my driving will be fine
Speeding along as though in flight, this was indeed a tragic night
I jumped a light and didn't see, next thing that I knew, she was bleeding next to me.

She’s lying on the hospital bed not moving, not moving,
We can’t go back, we can’t go back.
She’s lying on the hospital bed not breathing, not breathing,
We can’t bring her back, we can’t bring her back.


Why is everybody laughing, everybody but me?
Why is everybody so happy? Another life has been lost in tragedy.

She’s lying on the hospital bed not moving, not moving,
We can’t go back, we can’t go back.
She’s lying on the hospital bed not breathing, not breathing,
We can’t bring her back, we can’t bring her back.


She’s gone forever. She’s gone forever.

He messed up and took her life away.
A mistake that can never be erased.
He sits and cries where her body lays
And decides that this will be his final day.

He’s lying on the hospital bed not moving, not moving,
We can’t go back, we can’t go back.
He’s lying on the hospital bed not breathing, not breathing,
We can’t bring him back, we can’t bring him back.


He’s gone forever. He’s gone forever.

Two lives lost in tragedy, there is a pattern I can see
This was not supposed to be.

Two lives lost in tragedy, there is a pattern I can see
This was not supposed to be.

Two lives lost in tragedy, there is a pattern I can see
This was not supposed to be.

Leave It All Behind

There comes a time when one has seen enough of this world we know
There comes a time for all of us, a time when we must go
We leave behind humankind, we spread our wings and fly
Far from here, but very near, cause memories they do not die.

If I could take you to a better place, we’d leave today, I would take you away
If I would know, I’d show you the way, we’d leave today, I would take you away.


There comes a time, the end is near, our daily problems will disappear
Unknown lurks, uncertainty, we need not fear, we need not fear.

If I could take you to a better place, we’d leave today, I would take you away
If I would know, I’d show you the way, we’d leave today, I would take you away.

I know that you are … leaving for a better place, humankind’s a fucked up place
It’s time for us to leave it all behind

Time for us to say goodbye, you can now read to the sky,
I know that everything will be alright … alright.

Remember that I think of you, you’re in my mind, you’re in my heart
Remember that it’s not the end, it’s the build up to another start … another start.

I Ask Myself Why

I’m glad to say he’s won the race, I can see happiness on his mother’s face.
His father’s proud, there is joy all around,
He’s reaches the stage where he can stand his own ground.

He’s full of joy, he is full of smiles, just a pity that it will last a very short while.
Opportunity was never there, that’s maybe why he thinks that his life is unfair.
A couple of wives, this doesn’t look good,
Please tell him again, don’t think he understood.
There is no cure, they are unsure, for the rest of his life he must now endure.

And I …. I look up to the sky and ask myself
Why do all these poor people have to die?
And I think to myself, what a messed up place …
Does God himself actually care about this tragedy we face?


I see that he’s only got skin and bones
And the hospital ward is his permanent home.
The morbid sight distorts my mind, I look for happiness but there is nothing I find.
I can’t control, I shed a tear, cause he is lying, crying, dying in fear.
I cannot help, nothing I can do, this is the final stage that he’s suffering through.

And I …. I look up to the sky and ask myself
Why do all these poor people have to die?
And I think to myself, what a messed up place …
Does God himself actually care about this tragedy we face?


… A killer spread by love/lust … this is the time to make a change…

The Story/Message Behind This Song

Unseen Trait

When your presence fills the room, my heart beat rises,
My speech it leaves me all alone.
I find myself in awkward silence,
Should I have rather have stayed at home?

Something about you is so amazing, can’t point it out, it’s deep inside.
You turn and face me, total beauty, this is what I dream of late at night.
This is what I dream of late at night.

Cause it’s not here not there, it’s everywhere,
An unseen trait that fills the air.
It’s not here not there, it’s everywhere,

Just thought I’d let you know that I really care.

I lie in bed awake at 2, I cannot sleep cause I think of you.
Convince myself not to go insane, can’t wait for the time when we meet again.
Can’t wait for the time when we meet again.

Cause it’s not here not there, it’s everywhere, 
An unseen trait that fills the air.
It’s not here not there, it’s everywhere, 

Just thought I’d let you know that I really care.


Cause it’s not here not there, it’s everywhere, 
An unseen trait that fills the air.
It’s not here not there, it’s everywhere, 

Just thought I’d let you know that I really care.


It’s not here not there, it’s not here not there,
It’s not here not there, it is everywhere.
It’s not here not there, it’s not here not there,
Just thought I’d let you know that I really care.

It’s not here not there, it’s everywhere,
An unseen trait that fills the air.
It’s not here not there, it’s everywhere,
Just thought I’d let you know that I really care.

My Heart Shows Me The Way

Take some time out to think about yesterday.
Makes me wonder where I’d be if I’d chosen a different way.
So many paths, no signs to show us where to go, sometimes I do not know.

But my heart shows me the way, it knows what I love, what I love
It leads me every day, it knows what I love, without it, I’d go astray.


We think things through, make choices everyday,
But we will never know if we’ve chosen the right way.
Do not fool yourself, money can’t buy it all.
Someday your greed will contribute to your fall.

But my heart shows me the way, it knows what I love, what I love
It leads me every day, it knows what I love, without it, I’d go astray.


My heart shows me the way, my heart shows me the way,
my heart shows me the way, yeah, my heart shows me the way.

My heart shows me the way, my heart shows me the way,
my heart shows me the way, today.

Never Forgotten

Fly, fly into the sky, freedom is yours, no time for goodbyes
Don’t worry about us, just leave us here on earth.

Lived your life one day at a time, carpe diem, it was so damn fine
The illness won the race, but you were always ahead.

The other day you were still next to me, joking around.
I just can’t grasp that you are…

Gone for good, but never forgotten, escape this cruel world, mankind is rotting.
You’re always be there in our fond memories. Why is the cycle of life sometime so unfair?


Had a dream, saw the world. Found true love, but never grew old.
Fathered a son, but never lived to see his face.

The other day you were still next to me, joking around.
I just can’t grasp that you are…

Gone for good, but never forgotten, escape this cruel world, mankind is rotting.
You’re always be there in our fond memories. Why is the cycle of life sometime so unfair?

Gone for good, but never forgotten, escape this cruel world, mankind is rotting.
You’re always be there in our fond memories. Why is the cycle of life sometime so unfair?

Gone for good, but never forgotten, escape this cruel world, mankind is rotting.
You’re always be there in our fond memories. Why is the cycle of life sometime so unfair?

Monkey On My Back

Find myself in this hole again, can’t find a way out.
I’m kicking, I’m tripping, the ladder’s falling …
Apart of me is happy, part of me is sad.
You could be stuck with me, so just be glad … cause I am

Lost, confused, alone, abused, help me out today,
I’m lost confused, alone, abused, this is not the way it was supposed to be
I think that I am trapped inside of me, I cannot see
This powerful thing, it’s patient, it’s silent, it is killing me … it is killing me tonight.


Don’t think you know what it’s all about, haven’t seen you down here.
It’s lonely, it’s gory, this is not the end of the story.
Part of me is lost, part of me still here
I’m trying to make the turn, I’m trembling in fear … cause I am

Lost, confused, alone, abused, help me out today,
I’m lost confused, alone, abused, this is not the way it was supposed to be
I think that I am trapped inside of me, I cannot flee
This powerful thing, it’s patient, it’s silent, it is killing me … it is killing me tonight.

It is killing me tonight.

Voiceless

Here we go!

Please look around, please tell me what do you see?
Ten years have passed, do they call this democracy?
Lives have been changed, yes, rights have been restored
A lack of knowledge makes us follow the wrong horde

Stand up, speak out, we need voices, we need voices.
To tell the truth, people must know, we need voices,
We need voices to sing out this song.


Ten years have passed, people are free, live side by side
We all agree, accept the past, time to move on
I’ll read the news and shake my head, another girl raped and found dead
So many things are going wrong.

Stand up and speak out, stand up be heard
Fight for the real truth, a lesson must be learnt
Can you not see?

Stand up, speak out, we need voices, we need voices.
To tell the truth, people must know, we need voices,
We need voices to sing out this song.

The Fallen One

Wake up, get up, get dressed now!
Do you know why we are here?
Don’t ask, pack up and shut up now!
My hands are trembling in fear… Why are we here?

Do you know what we are fighting for?
Is it maybe all a lie?
Back at home theres so much worth living for
One things for sure is that I don’t want to die … and I know that

Momma’s at home, she is crying on the phone
Telling family and friends what went wrong.
Poppa’s at home, he is feeling all alone
Having nightmares about the bitter end … of his son’s life.


What a shame, why did he go?
I want to know the truth, is it all a lie?
Life’s unfair, why did he have to die?


Move on, don’t question what the other people said.
Move on, don’t question, forget that the other guy is dead.

That’s it, I’m done, I’m breaking
I’m sick of seeing all this pain
The anger, the hatred, I’ll either die or go insane
Why don’t you feel the same?

Momma’s at home, she is crying on the phone
Telling family and friends what went wrong.
Poppa’s at home, he is feeling all alone
Having nightmares about the bitter end … of his son’s life.


What a shame, why did he go?
I want to know the truth, is it all a lie?
Life’s unfair, why did he have to die?


Move on, don’t question what the other people said.
Move on, don’t question, forget that the other guy is dead.
