When Comes Daylight (Mercier/Mercier) Should I be blame? Let him decide Withdraw my name When comes daylight To win or loose Is this a game? No time to choose Please, they all look the same But you were never given a chance He offered gifts, he offered deliverance Then made it disappear Like dust or fear Shut up, shut up To stay or go Where is your guide? Faith melts like snow When comes daylight But you were never given a chance He offered gifts, he offered deliverance Then made it disappear Like dust or fear But you're on your way To cross the line Smile on your face Boy, you show all the signs You'll win the race Hands on your head Blood on you face But the spirit's now dead Look me in the eyes Say that you're dead No the guide's not the man ahead He's pushing in your back instead Hang on to your heart Here come daylight

Gabrielle 06:30
Gabrielle 2009 (JP Mercier/JP Mercier) The wind is her hair She holds the land in her arms Oh God, I know when she's there Because the sun is her heart And I can read on her lips All the prayers you learned And all the secrets she keeps But in her eyes we'll burn How I wish that I could feel I wish that I could tell But sometimes it makes me want to scream I call you Gabrielle When she falls asleep in the arms of an angel Sometimes it's hard to tell Is it bad or is it good and if I should? Please, tell me Gabrielle Oh, when she walks in her sleep With her hands in her hair And refuses to breath Dreaming she was an angel Knowing angels are dead But then she followed the plans That the ancients have drawn So she'd be part of the clan So she'd be just a... Oh, nothing but a word in a song My heart is dying rapidly But still beats to slow for me Although you sing it endlessly Your song's still to short for me Gabrielle, is it heaven or hell? Say something Gabrielle.

A Miracle 04:53
A Miracle (Mercier/Mercier) They could've hid it somewhere They took their things then flew away Like children rushing up the stairs To ask their god if the can play Play judgement day Whatever you believe We all believe that one is used or chooses to abuse Are you waiting for the bell to ring? Until it finally rings true And if the eagle and its wings The old lady and the other things are clues Either you really, really trust those things Or you are really confused The answer took forever And mother was crying all along This fall it makes me wonder If all those leaves will touch the ground Safe and sound Oh, America How can you sleep at night? To me it's a miracle Aren't you tired of all these atrocities? You inspire the world such misery Opportunity is laughing at you And had it's fun with me You should be rushing home America Is there someone home? America
5.
Scream, Cry or Fall (Mercier/Mercier) Today the fools came in before To sense the agony of a holy war It's such a helpless war And gathering a flock in the dark A Shepard rises the then he drops Now vultures make their shadows fly To cover our souls They need you by their side And some prophet said you'd come along Another swore he was wrong But you can follow no more Scream, cry or fall I wasn't worried at all No more Scream, cry or fall I wasn't worried at all No more The silence rules our burial ground It somehow bare the wait of a broken crown It such a sweet sound And living from the will of the heart Of who's missing and who's not Now keep the ropes in troubled hands Where madness can breathe Your passion still commands No one cares if you go back alone Remember you're on your own You just can follow no more
6.
Face To Face 06:08
Face to Face (Mercier/Mercier) The flags lay on the floor One dead conquistador The air we breath's so cold Home of tormented souls Hide your mistaken fears Hide all your desperate tears Yes, something here must die It keeps warning me way down deep inside Birds from the sacred land They could sing and they could fly and die for you I sent those flower for you Open your eyes I look at you I won't cry for you I won't died for you You can send your message from your hiding place But you don't say the same things when were face to face I got the scars on my hands I wear a shroud on my face Why don't you try it again? Now, we are face to face Face to face Blood falls from paradise Another human sacrifice The Christian sinking boat The truth stuck in their throat Desert winds dry my eyes Is this our last goodbye? Yesterday's not enough But I'm afraid tomorrow's much to much

Land of The Damned (Mercier/Mercier) Some pilgrims have never been to New Jerusalem A birthmark on my skin says that I'm one of them Oh lord, if I'm suppose to see that all of this is a gift If all of this is really for me I sure can't say what I'll miss I would have swear you knew That faith imposes itself One day it fell on you But you prayed to your god instead If it's so easy to start It must be easy to stop If it's so easy to climb I know, it must be easy to drop So destiny took me by the hand To show me where my life would end To her, I've been told To give up my soul At this point I'd do anything to change her mind Please, I don't want to go This must be the land Land of the damned Imagine my deception When I've reached my destination A man was waiting there for me He said he was waiting just like me He said, if people say you're the devil's friend It's just the way to show they don't understand But he was lying all along, the man was lying all along He said, you could loose or you could win You tried to choose and I told you that was a sin I've waited much to long You must go back where you belong Eternity got rid of me now Heaven knows what's left of me I'm a lost soul Just an empty hole But you can wait for me my friend I guess it mean that I am coming home Home, home.
