Track Name: Empty Inside
With the power of my mind
I'll overcome it all
All pain and suffering
Drugs and Alcohol
So insult me with your words
Cause its what you don't say that counts
I could never be like them
They're just empty inside

Empty Inside
I testify

Realize the truth
Come to terms that something went wrong
We are just one people, one youth
Trying to find a place to belong

They're always trying to force me
Into something I don't want to be
Fill me up with "logic"
But your argument is weak.
Pin a label on me?
You wont find a glue that will stick
You are trained like an animal
Eyelids bolted in

Let society live in the filth they create
It's so full of hate
Dig their own shallow grave
It's so full of Hate.
Track Name: Stripped of False Pride
Track Name: Streets of Moscow
I ask of thee
Why conform?
When I'm scrutinized by this uniform

Work the land
So unfair
don't know how much more I can bare

Lenin stood up
Speaking so proud
"There has to be another way.
no rich or poor, equality for all
and religion is for the weak."

Behold the winds of change
Brothers and sisters join me
let's rearrange

Leaders without vision
Times kept getting worse
It took 70 years to realize
Communism leads to demise

Working night and day
without any pay
this shit you can't ignore
No food on the shelves
No clothes on the rack
the production was just too poor.

Mother Russia wipe your tears
Your time will come, you'll stand on your feet
you'll shine like a diamond, regain your strength
Democracy is making it's way.

Rome wasn't built over night, so they say
And your enemies will perish away
brake the chains of oppression, the curtain of steel
wounds take time to heal

Helped raise the red fist of the giant who is lost now
Dying, starving, bleeding on the streets of Moscow.
Track Name: Spirit of the Staircase
Life keeps on slipping through the cracks in my soul
Contemplating when I will fall
is there hope?
or am I too late

Choices I made based on lust greed and fear
Self destructive past
the future is not clear
Lord, help me find my way

Is there a heaven
a place i'll never see
what about love?
is it really for free?

Questions unanswered
prayers unheard
I cant rely
on man and his word

Nothing has meaning
Everything is l;ost
Escape this mental holocaus

Cry to the wiind
regain your place
don't live your life
with the spirit of the saircase

Fools will be foolls
says the ancient folk
Lovers in love with mist and smoke
listen inside
what do you hear?

As the world turns
people live and they die
accidents happen
and we wonder why
luck of the draw?
or all in the cards?

Millions have passed
but I stopped and I looked
you can't summarize your life in a book

Paint a picture and close my eyes
wanted love which lead to diemise

On better days I'll think years ahead
me and her sleeping in the same bead

will the satisfy me?
will that be my place?
living my life'
with the spirit of the staircase
