Irock Maiden I really enjoy listening to the entire album. I do like all of the songs on there, even "Little by Little" which has grown on me over time. My favorite song is Grand Inquisitor followed by "Be All and End All". Favorite track: Grand Inquisitor.

I am just a drop in the ocean I have no excuse for my lies You came along in all this commotion And cut me to size I am not an asker of questions And I don't need to beg for your help And I don't need to spread my opinion I can sort it out for myself Down in the dirt, right where it hurts Fading into the hole I am trailing Into the soul I am sailing Pushing me down in the dirt Fading into the hole I am trailing Treading the water, prevailing Pushing me down in the dirt I am just a drop in the ocean I repeat the words of the wise You came along in all this commotion Came along and made me realize I am just a speck in the spectrum I am just a fly on the wall I could never bask in your glamour I could never see it, I could never see through it all Down in the dirt, way down I am just a drop in the ocean I repeat the words of the wise You came along in all this commotion Came along and made me realize I am not an asker of questions And I don't need to beg for your help And I don't need to spread my opinion I can sort it out for myself Down, down in the dirt, way down Down, right where it hurts, way down Down, down in the dirt, way down Down

Always hoping for the future We postpone it once again Finding ways to be distracted Hoping to be entertained Can't seem to understand it It's not the way we planned it It's not the way it's meant to be I feel a certain sadness An itching burning madness I'm sick of inactivity In a world of conversation you have to make a change You seize the situation, you are an animal In spite of your frustration, there's nothing pre-arranged And in this situation you are an animal Your expensive education Custom tailored suit and tie There's no time for hesitation When you're in the camera's eye It's time for rearranging, change for the sake of changing Out with the old in with the new We need a revolution, a dirty quick solution We'll leave the details up to you In a world of conversation you have to make a change You seize the situation, you’re an animal In spite of your frustration, there's nothing pre-arranged And in this situation you are an animal An animal We tried to talk to you, you left us waiting on the ground And the devil that we knew was nowhere to be found A one-way avenue, there is no chance to turn around And the devil that we knew was nowhere to be found Another glory seeker, a perfect public speaker A single spark ignites the flame But now the bridge is burning, no chances of returning Your life will never be the same In a world of conversation you had to make a change You seized the situation, you’re an animal In spite of your frustration, there's nothing pre-arranged And in this situation you you’re an animal An animal

Tried to see the world through another’s eyes Tried to find the truth but I found your lies Tried to please them all but I’m spread too thin Don’t know where I end and where I begin All of your fears become you All of your hate is trapped inside Holding the thread that binds you Both of my hands are firmly tied Tried to steal the fragments of my youth Tried to shield myself from the brutal truth Tried to rebuild all that I've destroyed Tried to fill this gaping fuckin void All of your fears become you All of your hate is trapped inside Holding the thread that binds you Both of my hands are firmly tied Tried to send my message back to you Tried to leave my mark before I’m through Tried to be someone I’ve never been Chasing down another fleeting dream All of your fears become you All of your hate is trapped inside Holding the thread that binds you Both of my hands are firmly tied

You kept a picture to remember You cut it down to wallet size You swore it would be like this forever And then one day you realize I know some day I could pretend to live this way, a hopeless helpless man I wouldn't defend you You did what you had to do You've spoiled all my plans And when this masquerade is over When all your questions disappear One day when all the doubt will vanish And then the passage will be clear I guess you'd say How could you leave me here this way A hopeless helpless man I wouldn't defend you You did what you had to do You've spoiled all my plans You took all they gave to you You don't deserve to allow this chance to pass You know what is meant for you You have the nerve to escape this house of glass And your baggage will be left behind And the life you leave will disappear over time When you open your mind I know some day I could pretend to live this way, a hopeless helpless man I wouldn't defend you You did what you had to do You've spoiled all my plans

The sand on my fingers, It once felt like water, long ago Corrupted by years, of feeling immortal, and I know I will never feel cold Not tired of swimming, Not tired of treading through the snow The water is steaming, the glaciers are melting, and I know I will never feel cold I will go to a place where the sea meets the sky Where good men turn to stone as their widowed wives cry Where the blood runs so thick and is sweeter than wine Where the strong eat the weak and the weak go to die Where torture is pleasure and kindness is pain Where the sinful are free and the free are insane Where the temperature’s set to one hundred and five Where morals are dead and where I feel alive What did I forget here? What is it that bring me to this place? There’s pain in my fingers, and lines that the wind carved on my face I will never feel cold With the salt from the east we are bound As this wind blows the sand into clouds And the lips that kiss this land are blistered from the sun With the sand here and gone

Strangled by the love you bring Lost my faith in everything Saw through your hypocrisy You don’t know what’s best for me Slowly, we’re coming around Slowly, regaining our ground Slowly, we’re coming around Little by little I won’t do what I am told I won’t buy what I am sold I won't play the games you play I will find another way Slowly, we’re coming around Slowly, regaining our ground Slowly, we’re coming around Little by little Little by little, we will find a way Little by little, we will make you pay Make you pay Strangled by the love you bring Lost my faith in everything Here I sit upon my throne Stuck inside the comfort zone Growing older every day Left with nothing more to say Rebuilt all that I’ve destroyed Crawling back onto the void

The night, it settles itself before me And I don’t know where to run And I don’t think that I can survive another In a momentary weakness Unbeknownst to all the world I have simply lost my will to live Simply lost myself Like a puppeteer, I watch them dance around me Straws of hopeful dreams, filling up their heads Little did I know, about the fear that binds me Would I have been better off a puppet instead I can no longer see the forest for the trees Don't know why anyone would want to follow me I stand upon a broken tower of shattered glass I should have known that this was never meant to last I don't know, I don't know what else to do And I don't know if there's anything worth doing Where do I find the strength to pull me through Don't think I can find the courage to begin Am I simply a careless puppeteer Messing up the steps of another show I've ruined Or am I just a puppet on display destined to live out my days attached to strings Swaying on my feet I welcome the defeat And I just want to move on And I’ve played this part too long Dancing on display Puppets in a play But I know all this will end We are tied to this my friend Pull the strings try to break free After all you’ll follow me

Staring at the clock in anticipation Waiting for the sound of the starting gun But how did I end up behind the curtain? How was I left behind these walls? Eyes trapped inside an hourglass Dreams drowning in its sands Elusive yearnings of the past Subdued inside the man Help me to put this into words Someone can understand Is there any reason to believe That this isn't all there is to it (It’s just a boundary in your mind) The light's fading down the corridor It must be now or never Trailing, failing, I feel I’m always just one step behind Out of phase, out of time, inside the boundary of my mind So burn the candle at both ends Only to dim the glow Push to the limits just to reach The unexceptional Pause for a moment but you know You have arrived too late Watch everything that you have built Collapsing underneath its weight (Just break the boundary in your mind) The light's fading down the corridor It must be now or never Trailing, failing, I feel I’m always just one step behind Out of phase, out of time, inside the boundary of my mind But down the rabbit hole the answer lies Unraveling itself right before your eyes One more time around, just one last chance Before the clock runs out and you lose the race The light shines mockingly, and keeps you still The more you fight the more you seem to lose your will So through the rabbit hole, you still hold on The path is clearer now that the fear is gone At times I fear it’s now forever And sometimes I feel there’s no end in sight Sometimes it seems there’s no tomorrow Sometimes I can’t see an end to the night Adrift in an ocean of questions unanswered I sit here and await the sound of the starting gun

You’re just a drop in my endless void Another moment that yet unfolds An endless dance of life and death Eternal struggle of hot and cold Countless flashes before my eyes A billion thoughts materialise My mind is your infinity My life is your eternity I'm the be all and end all I am all you hold sacred (Your nightmares and dreams) I'm the dark void and light of the stars All there is and ever was Long have I gazed upon your world Waiting in vain for you to rise Ensnared by chaos you struggle on Crippled by vanity and pride I feel the yearning of countless souls Afraid and cold, they roam alone Seeking me out, too blind to see They’re already inside of me I'm the be all and end all I am all you hold sacred (I'm everything) I'm the dark void and light of the stars All there is and ever was Your ways are mistaken, you’ve all but forsaken Your part in this tale Time and again you choose foe over friend Raising the veil Stuck in a spiral your lust has gone viral There is no cure But before long all your kind will be gone Of This I'm Sure Life's a wheel Spinning round Never stops Or slows down In the end I'll remain Then we’ll start Once again

about

"Listening to this album makes me happy, as everything is so tight and clean easy to swallow. Every song’s got a great chorus with thought provoking lyrics, a solo or two that’s easy to digest, fun instrumentation, and just a sense of joy about them. Even though the opening track has a more abrasive tone, the rest of the album is just filled to the brim with so many feel good vibes, particularly on the tile track and on ‘’little by little’’, a freaking lovely and wholesome tune. The vocals are also, again, a joy to listen to.
Recommended for fans of: Lighter Rainbow/Dio
Final verdict: 8.5/10". Dylan - theprogressivesubway.wordpress.com
