Lyrics:

1 VALLEY OF PAIN

oh lonely desert sun

you cut me down to size

make me forget my anger

only water on my mind

it’s not easy to regain

a true goal in life

’cause when your father dies my friend

by deceit or the knife

 

oh lonely desert sun

you beat down on the sand

shape me through suffering

a life I now understand

heard about a prophecy

and found it in a stranger

already a man despite the age

showing the way through danger

 

going down into the valley of pain

chasing a dream of love

all I found was madness

but I would do it all again

 

when you live on the edge

nature becomes a friend

even if it’s wild and cruel

you’re gonna fight until the end

a dream can suddenly feel so real

destiny’s the fuel

suffer through the pain and tears

with nothing to hold on to

 

going down into the valley of pain…

 

who rides the desert

who rules the mind

who leads the people

who will rule mankind

he will see the future

he will see the past

he will speak for many

he will show the path

 

(we all suffer from the war)

 

went to the valley

wanting love to reign

all I saw was madness

but I would do it all again

we went down into the valley of pain

chasing a dream of love

all we found was madness

but we would do it all again

 

3 DOOMED IN THE DESERT

sun is burning my skin

and I can’t take it anymore

I need water to survive

holding on holding on

barely alive

what can I do

where should I go

 

the sun keeps burning my flesh

I need someone here

it’s too late I fear

what can I do

where should I go

how will I survive

will I survive

the desert is not for everyone

 

4 ALIENATION (stranger in me)

alien abduction may not be the answer

for a feeling of alienation

some say it happens all the time

the stranger is amongst us

can you feel the fear in the air

but when I read the papers

or watch the TV it’s there for all to see

I recognize the stranger in me

 

the stranger in me

talks peace and harmony

but no one understands

the stranger in me

 

I have seen the large skulls

with big black eyes

every child can draw them

are we looking at the X-files lie ?

it all seems so dangerous when I watch TV

I can see the stranger in me

it all seems so dangerous when I watch TV

I can see the stranger in me

 

the stranger in me

has multi coloured skin

the stranger in me

is living without sin

the stranger in me

talks peace and harmony

but no one understands

the stranger in me

 

no evolution no respect

no trust no peace

no lasting effect

no communication no idea

no understanding how we got here

we evolve into the alien nation

that we all are taught to fear

 

6 ASLEEP

just in that precious moment

before I fall asleep

the most meaningful lines

are in my head so deep

what are we supposed to do

lay the answers here

will we be united

will we overcome our fears

 

where do the angels go

when you fall asleep at night

where do your dreams flow to

when the sun shines a light

 

looking up to the skies

I see the different stars

are we alone in this time

the truth is somewhere far

do the men in black treat us

like our lips should be sealed

the secrets they continue to hide

will soon be revealed

 

where do the angels go…

 

the lies must be bigger than this world

the beauty must be hidden from within

if she still exists at all

I guess the truth is known

but I know deep inside

she’s hiding in the light

where do we go from here

 

7 INTO THE LIGHT

scientific surgery

what does that mean

master brains are working out

what can it be

future elections

bring future ejections

but who wants to leave his home

 

don’t travel with light ‘cos you will find

time ain’t on your side

when you travel so fast, you belong to the past

taking a dangerous ride

it’s a time-paradox walk into the light

it’s a time-paradox don’t take the danger flight

 

to travel space they want to hold

time inside their hand

the mighty spice they can’t control

the falling grains of sand

star wars talking

brings star wars walking

but who wants to leave his home

 

don’t travel with light ‘cos you will find…

 

into the light

faster and faster

into the light

enjoy the risk

we will go blind

looking for the worm

never look around

heading for a storm

 

don’t travel with light ‘cos you will find…

walk into the light

 

9 THE CONFRONTATION

I found a letter in the gutter

it was addressed to me

from that devil or his mother

as it turned out to be

it was written in blood

such a terrible sign

and it was understood

there would be no denyin’

 

why is it you put the blame on me

blame my existence on society

I’m strugglin’ on my bare feet

but I can take no more heat

release me, release me

 

everywhere I go

the confrontation is near

the Houses are fighting

all the enemies here

as you may already know

my problems keep me alive

it’s getting harder and harder

we have to run to survive

 

why is it you put the blame on me…

 

I found my devil in the gutter

and he was pointing at me

he wants to be in charge

a new soul to use

and I can’t deny

I’ll always be the loser

 

why do you put the blame on me

blame my existence on society

I’m strugglin’ on my bare feet

but I can take no more heat

release me, release me

 

10 FEAR

I – Grains Of Sand

 

II  – Fear Kills The Mind

I will not fear the unknown

past present or future

now is what I am

now is what I know

open minded not a fool

trust very few

harnessing the power within me

to be all I can be

 

I must not fear

for fear kills the mind

face the danger

one of a kind child

don’t be blind

fear kills the mind

 

the test that I must pass

this level of scrutiny

how to stand the pain I feel

until I remember

fear kills the mind

but I have the power

the force to deal with this

I will survive

 

(solo)

 

thank you mother

I made it through

and I know just what to do

thank you mother

you trained me well

we will survive this hell

 

I must not fear…

 

III Treason

 

IV The Free men

we are the free men

we call the worm

we can survive the desert

we can survive

 

we are the free men

we ride the worm

we can survive the storm

 

we the Fremen

keepers of the water

we are unstoppable

 

we the Fremen

keepers of the spice

we burn our enemies

 

Muad’Dib will show the way

Muad’Dib will show the path

Muad’Dib is the way

Muad’Dib is the path

 

we the Fremen

keepers of the water

we are unstoppable

 

we the Fremen

keepers of the spice

we destroy our enemies

 

we the Fremen

keepers of the faith

we are unstoppable

 

we the Fremen

keepers of the spice

we burn our enemies

 

V Fear Kills The Mind (repeat)

I must not fear

for fear kills the mind

face the danger

one of a kind child

don’t be blind

fear kills the mind

I must not fear

for fear kills the mind

face the danger
