Lying on your bed Lost inside your world No one ever reaches deep inside of you In a constant limbo Close to never land With your eyes tight shut Cast upon a spell Flat / line - can you hear me over there? Flat / line - won't you please come back to life? The venom of serpents Is under your lips They live, you sleep Wake up from this dream Flat / line - can you hear me over there? Flat / line - won't you please come back to life?

Not a night goes by Without the restless dreams Where you're beautiful as ever and you're kissing me And when the shadows fade Under the killing sun In the heat of the day, I still remember everything Like a curse - there is nothing I can do Like a curse - I can't get away from you Like a curse - I can never let you go Like a curse - you keep coming back for more Nothing ever changes So I've learned Even though I've tried so hard to forget And when the shadows fall I can hear you calling me Your smile as still as the stars And you've never loved me once Like a curse - there is nothing I can do Like a curse - I can't get away from you Like a curse - I can never let you go Like a curse - you keep coming back for more (Lead guitars: MONTE PITTMAN)

Sirens calling Waiting for a touch Shadows around me Dancing in the dark One last kiss is all I miss Before we finally say goodbye One last kiss, one last wish Will you let me lay my lips around your eyes? Fire inside you Flowing in your veins Passion burning And it's driving you insane One last kiss is all I miss Before we finally say goodbye One last chance for you to say This will never ever change One last kiss, one last wish One last blow right through my heart One last kiss around your neck Like a fading cigarette mark One last kiss One last kiss One last kiss Just one last

You know, this ain't a movie. Yet everyone around you is playing a part. Not everyone would admit to it, sure. But that's just what everyone does. Hour after hour, day after day, week after week, all of us. Some think they got the whole script down. But I think most of us are playing by heart. And all it takes for things to go one way rather than the other is somebody who takes his or her own part very, very seriously. And when you do that, when you really go and do that - you just don't know. You just don't know what's gonna happen. It could be the perfect ending and everybody's living happily ever after. Or it could turn out real bad. It could turn out you're not the hero. It could turn out you're the one holding the knife, just before that final gunshot, only moments before the credits start rolling... So - how are you going to play your part? (Narration: DARREN TRAVIS)

You can't afford to lose no time When everybody's on the line The sun is setting and the night Will take care of all there is to see You know she's hiding there somewhere Deep in the corners of your head You can't afford to lose this track Deep down you know she won't come back And even though you're standing still The shadows dancing on the beat You know she's only meant to kill Yet you can't help the way you feel So run away my dear it's time You can't afford to love no more You know the end's in sight Tonight you know you're bound to lose it all (Lead synth: CODY CARPENTER) So don't you live and die on the air Don't kill yourself for all to see And don't you love and die on the air Just burn away the memories
8.
You're lost inside a screen I long for your caress This never ending scene Replaying in my head Of you and I together And happy ever after A wish that I can't hide I long for just one smile Maybe one night I'll be yours and you'll be mine I need your eyes on me I long for one last kiss It's easy to imagine How can this all be wrong? There's nothing else I see Alone here in the dark And if we'll meet in dreams I'll never want to wake up Maybe one night I'll be yours and you'll be mine Maybe one night the stars will shine above us You'll whisper my name We'll dance with the shadows together again
