Stiletto en la
arena (Jihad)

War for Sale

Música:
Brendt Allman. Letras: Carl Cadden-James

Time came to leave

You know there's something

About the principle

Of what goes on behind the scenes

The military machine

The way they led me on...

Stiletto in the sand

Thrusted down in anger

Bloody to the handle

Diamond red

Machines of mass destruction

Well I helped to design them

The guilt of children's blood stains on my hands

The word from
the board room

Our boys in Tehran have scored

How long 'til
we realice the truth?

The bottom line of defense and world security

The bankers and the ministry of arms

Just cut the deal and the war is on

The village burned the desert set ablaze

Who are these men with their fingers in everybody's pie?

Big rockets and their profits all the rage

Their business plan calls for war for sale

Please understand

Until I saw all this

I never thought about the third world trampled under wheels

Out in the streets and in the fields

I simply questioned it all...

Stiletto in the sand

Fingers on the triggers

Tempers boiling over

Bleed them red

Machines of mass
destruction

Oh why did I design them?

The guilt of children's blood stains on my hands

Napalm and land
mines

Nobody left alive

How long 'til
we realice the truth?

The bottom line of defense and world security

The bankers and the ministry of arms

Just cut the deal and the war is on

The market screams a recommended buy

The contract's in don't just sit there get your broker on the line

Big money left their morals far behind

Guess what we've got - we got war for sale!

How long 'til
we realice the truth?

The bottom line of defense and world security

The bankers and the ministry of arms

Just cut the deal and the war is on

The village burned, the desert set ablaze

Who are these men with their fingers in everybody's pie?

Then freedom's ring departed from today

There's just no doubt - we've got war for sale!

 

Se vende guerra

Out of Nowhere

Música:
Brendt Allman/Chris Ingles. Letra: Carl Cadden-James/Mike Baker

Yesterday is over

Stripped of my clearance -fired

I don't know what to do

Haunted by empty faces

Victims of warring madness

If they only knew

Their world's
a bloody mess

Some corporate bottom line

I tried to ask and they treat me like a threat

And they slammed the door behind

Yesterday I walked
away into a cold cold city

So afraid our world today is just a house of lies

Just believe in what you feel

They used to say they used to say

Then out of nowhere

I melt into my busy day

Reaching out in
my world

Becomes a matter of

Connections to the net

I've locked myself in real good

Investigative research

Looking for what is real

Welcome the brave
new world

No light inside my soul

The more I learn the deeper in I'm drawn

The deeper in I fall

Yesterday I walked
away into a cold cold city

Ain't it strange how wars get raged to sounds of smashing dreams

Just believe in what you feel

They used to say they used to say

Then out of nowhere

One world

No chance

Is this the new human race?

A faceless contact with life

Imaginary places stealing all of my time

Is this a test of my faith?

What's to become of my life

I used to see it so clear

But now I've lived to see it pass away

Before my eyes.

 

Fuera de todo
lugar

Mystery

Música: Brendt Allman/Chris Ingles. Letra:

Carl Cadden-James

Days at time pass

In the dead of night is when you come to me

You've got so much to say

Just spread your wings and ride

On the electric universe

Behind your computer

What do you picture when you read my

Words and thoughts and dreams?

Do they all come alive and breathe?

It's no wonder

This is a brand new world we're on

I'd really like to meet you somewhere along

The way you come
to me is such a mystery

I just reach out and connect

A thousand miles from me and yet it's all right here

It's electric on a silver thread

I never see your face you've such a mystery

Where you are I can only guess

Addictive screens

I just cannot turn away

Where are you
anyway?

Those things you say seem so damn far from real

But I can tell you this

I have seen things for myself that just don't seem right

I have always been an honest man

I believed that the system

Worked for

You and for

Me but - no

You say it's just a show

And we've all been way too busy

Or too spoiled to even care who's got the wheel

I used to look
behind the lies

Used to look for sunny skies

I learned so much since I've been

Hacking their computer systems

The truth had knocked me to the floor

That a boy now out the door

A little power and I'm

On my way to logging' on the world

The way you come
to me is such a mystery

I just reach out and connect

A thousand miles from me and yet it's all right here

It's electric on a silver thread

I never see your face you've such a mystery

And your touch I can only guess

I lay here dreaming

We're so gone away

The way you come
to me is such a mystery

I just reach out and connect

A thousand miles from me and yet it's all right here

Just electric on a silver web

And every night you're here you are my mystery

And where you are I can only guess

Morning's rising

And it's dawn again.

 

Misterio

Hope for Us?

Música:
Brendt Allman/Chris Ingles. Letra: Carl Cadden-James/Mike Baker

To late for us
now?

I sat alone and I spoke out loud

On this darkened afternoon

The windows to my room

A solemn shutter on the world

Were I used to laugh and dream

For the first time in so long I make

My way down to the street and watch

The people as they pass

Outside I breath
the air

And all around fall shadows of despair

I wonder is there
hope for us

A place where we can all be free

I wonder is there life inside a soul that dies?

I wonder is there hope for us

To lift me up I don't know when

I'll see the sun again

I'd like to feel alive

Just one more time

Headlines on the
floor

Today's bitterness is the calling card

The commercial masquerade

The goods all on parade

The needs of life are charming toys

We've gone deaf from all the noise

When did the rich and powerful elite

Slowly and unnoticed

Come and steal our innocence?

Entranced - we
danced their dance

The stage is set the crowd is on their knees

I wonder is there
hope for us

A place where we can all be free

I wonder is there life inside a soul that dies?

I wonder is there hope for us

We're stranded with no place to go

I'm feeling so alone

I'll try to make my way

Through one more day.

 

¿Esperanza
en nosotros?

Victims

Música:
Brendt Allman/Chris Ingles. Letra: Carl Cadden-James

Downtown I walk

Through New York City so hot

The summer swelter melting

Got things on my mind right now

In the alleys that I take

They just don't give up an inch

I turned and saw it all

I watched him fall

I tried to catch him

But they knocked me out cold too

"Babylon" he cried

The cost in flesh and blood is rising high

Things are falling
apart in all seems

Bleeding in the gutter

The waste of random acts of violence

Where's the Savior to rescue our dreams?

Desperation's crawling

We're victims of a world that's gone so wrong!

Hours later when
I woke

I was lying in some darkened basement rescue mission

They're tending to my needs and my wounds

They were such a sorry lot

The very bottom of the social ladder

I just caught myself before I cried

They've nothing at all

But they're the only ones there to help

Eden's sin's alive

Stalking me

Stalking everyone

Things are falling
apart it all seems

Tears that speak in volumes

The eyes of all these hopeless people

Where's the Savior to rescue our dreams?

Desperation's crawling

On victims of a power hungry world!

 

Víctimas

Broken

Música:
Gary Wehrkamp. Letra: Mike Baker/Carl Cadden-James

I am only just
a broken spirit

All the things unseen right before my eyes

How could I have ever been so blind

To the truth behind bitter lies?

I feel so lost and so alone in this room tonight

Is nothing ever going to change?

I've lost my will

I need somebody

To help we write out my next page

Where I ride into
the sunset

I race towards the dawn

I might have been a hero

A king and not just a pawn

But that's the way that the story goes you know

"It's not that way for me"

And I wake up cold and lonely

And stare into the screen...

 

Roto

I Believe

Música:
Carl Cadden-James/Gary Wehrkamp/Brendt Allman/Chris Ingles. Letra: Carl
Cadden-James/Mike Baker

Long ago a living
story

Walked the whole world prophesying

Told of days when the hand of God

Pulls away from the world

All hell starts breaking out

I see it clear

It pounds the cold into your life

It turns to gray what's black and white

I've torn their mask off

I can see them

What a bloody mess

That's our world!

My father's final
moments

And I was there to catch his last breath

He spoke so eloquently

Said

"Listen boy the way it goes is solely

Up to you and you alone

To live your life in strength that's been passed on

Blood to blood."

So we come to
a crossroad

I'm not sinking - do you see me?

I am standing where the strong of heart

Meet the wicked bad

Murals painted in the dungeons

Were the dreams that caused transforming

I am coming back to life again

Life again

A power's lifting
me I journey to the light

Many secrets passed before my eyes

It's just a matter
of time 'til new horizons will unfold

Tearing down the walls between us

Resurrect this poisoned world

'Fore the hopes and dreams of all the land are blown into the sky

There are things worth more than money

You got to learn to hold them high

I believe - I believe

I've seen what
comes of greed and money

I feel a growing call for action

We need changes now likes never before

Never in this world

The more I think about it

I know a woman who just might set the course for me

Cause I believe

I believe in what she says

Sometimes this
world is simply

Trembling - crumbling

Coming time to banish it for evermore

Evermore

The time for final judgment's close at hand

Four horsemen mount on high

Wake up in the morning to the sound of children dying

The latest technology mesmerize them

Love strong enough that it can pull you from the fire now

What about you?

What about you?

I am belive!

It's just a matter
of time 'til new horizons will unfold

Tearing down the walls between us

Resurrect this poisoned world

'Fore the hopes and dreams of all the land are blown into the sky

There are things worth more than money

You got to learn to hold them high

I believe - I believe.

 

Yo creo

Roads of Thunder

Música:
Gary Wehrkamp/Chris Ingles. Letra: Carl Cadden-James/Mike Baker

a) Empowered

Are your deeds
so really bad?

Your secret life untold

Please tell me

Just try me

But you say goodnight and shut me down until tomorrow

When you come to life again

And reveal just maybe

What's going on inside of you

The real you

Strange feeling

Right now I want to look you in the eyes

And tell you how I feel

I've lived life
a young lonely man

And I've traveled roads of thunder

Calling out to Heaven

Send your rain on down

Time has come to make my move

I want to join with you

I'm not powerless tonight

I'm tired of silent
conversations

With a mystery

It's so strange

We both know

We've grown so close

It's like you're mine and I am yours

And that's where things so wrong

You're not meant to be invisible

Please speak to me with spoken words

And prove you're real

I never knew that
I could feel with such conviction

And I just don't understand what separates our world

I've lived the
life of a lonely man

And I've traveled roads of thunder

Calling out to Heaven

Send your rain on down

Time has come to make my move

I want to join with you

I'm not powerless tonight

What if I cross the line

And I show you I mean business

Prove that we're alike

And send some rain on down?

Seems to me in these busy days

It's not just what you say

You gotta turn it back on them and fight!

I feel my life
turning pages at the mercy of the wind

There it is now

The course for me to take

Embed a virus in the system

Send their money flying to the ground

Financially restrained

The network down in flames

It's gonna take all that I know

But in the end they'll be mourning

Their system as it bleeds and dies

b) Virus

c)
Powerless

I've lived the
life of a lonely man

Now there's no more time for waiting

What I've gone and done

I sent the rain on down

What happens nest is now up to you

You gotta make a move

Don't leave me powerless tonight

I really mean it we've got to talk

This is something you believe in

Calling out to Heaven

Send your line on down

Now you know that I'm on my own

I'm waiting by the phone

You're not powerless tonight.

 

Caminos del trueno

Spoken Words

Música:
Gary Wehrkamp. Letra: Carl Cadden-James/Mike Baker

There I was all
alone all by myself

And you were just a ghost behind a screen

The few short months we spent

Long distance late nights just the two of us

I've grown to picture you

I've pictured you with me

There are things
I've just not told you

Works of treason wrought by these very hands

I've been scared for me

Now I'm scared for you

And so it's best I say farewell

No no no

Where you're going
I will be there

And every time you reach out I'm there

Where you're going I will be there

You've got to believe me

I'll never go away

You listen close
I've got to run and hide myself away

I think I may have brought them to their knees

There were your thoughts

Oh how they drew me in

I need to be with you

I've nowhere else to turn



All through my life I've had such an emptiness

That no one could ever fill

Some how your dreams they've touched my life

You see I think I'd like to try

Where you're going
I will be there

And every time you reach out I'm there

Where you're going I will be there

Now you've got to believe me

I'll never go away

Our only hope
I would say

Is to rendezvous somewhere far away

Just decipher the location that I send

Now I think that they are on to you

Our time has come

Where you're going
I will be there

And every time you reach out I'm there

Where you're going I will be there

You've got to believe me

I'll never go away.

 

Palabras dichas

New World Order

Música:
Gary Wehrkamp/Carl Cadden-James. Letra: Carl Cadden-James

Good day my fellow
citizen

I don't mean to intrude

But allow me to get right down to the point

We've monitored transmissions

We calculate your moves

Did you really think you're hidden from our sight?

Your name's been added to a list that's been compiled

Secret power I
can't believe

Growing stronger I feel them

Strengthening their grip

So there you are
you crossed the line

You pathetic little man

Well rest assured the worst you feared is true

In the seduction of society we play upon desire

Spoiled and drunk that's you

Can this be happening?

This world is just a grand facade

You're just a simple man at heart

A victim playing out a part

Oh I just want my freedom

Where are the ones who back you now?

I feel abandoned feel like

Screaming at the walls

Too bad the walls have ears

This never ever should heve been

But that's the way it is

This is the new
world order

This is the corporate sponsored

Changing of the guard

The march is on

I can feel it - I can feel it It's tyranny

It's all about the power

This rising new world order

Strong arm of the law

The march is on

I can see it - I can see it It's tyranny

The point you
fail to see is

The simple beauty of our subtle mind control

Brainwashing media is all we need to set the boundaries

Advanced communication

You're at our fingertips now

We own the TV stations

Entertainment, Publications

Wall street is our breeding ground

The sphere of our control extends through

Governments and leaders who will buy our arms

Yes buy our arms And run our evil wars

Run over evil wars Run this evil world into the ground

This is the new
world order

This is your corporate sponsored life

I see through
your disguises

Your rising new world order lies

You've no idea
the power My new world order is alive

You don't think
you really have a prayer

I don't know where to go avoid your

Staring eyes and universal grasp upon all life

This world is mine!

This is the new
world order

This is your corporate sponsored life

It's all about
the power

This rising new world order rise.

Ghost of a Chance

Música:
Brendt Allman/Chris Ingles/Gary Wehrkamp. Letra: Carl Cadden-James

Walking down some
highway midnight North Dakota

Somewhere 'round late fall I knew that the time

Has come for me I'm willing A million stars above me

I tried to catch their fall I tried to catch their fall

Inside I felt
so empty

A stranger to this world so lost

And as the winter draws I'm turning north

I'm leaving things behind I just don't need

The only things in life of worth are free

The anyone who's heard the call

And turned and walked away

I've traveled
too long on my own

I've got a dream of home

Safe at last...

Where are all
the answers

And visionary wisdom

From the stately and esteemed?

Just as I thought...

Disconsolate I ponder

The evil human nature

And what it really means

For the ones who paved the way

No bag of gold
can save their souls

It's like they never feared

But now their end is near

The flames start leaping

Baby don't it
drop you to your knees?

The only thing in life of worth is free

To anyone who's heard the call

And turned and run away

Despite this nasty
world I roam

Imagine going home

Ghost of a chance.

Christmas Day

Música:
Chris Ingles. Letra: Carl Cadden- James

Outside the twilight
rides high

And whispers of love sound deep in the night

Hope and promise of peace in our land

Is this Christmas time?

Dark winter watches
our fire

And brings us promise of a new day

Distant eyes have long gone away

Too far to see
The snow that falls

The winds of change Have come and gone

The cold has come I've been left out

I need your warmth You're all I have

If you're chasing
a dream to nowhere

It's enchantment that leads the way

Just believe in yourself and go there

The gift of hope on Christmas day

If every eye holds a blank stare

After winter's gone away

Just believe in yourself and go there

You and I on Christmas day

There's a time
when your doubts won't matter

There's a time all your fears can wait

All the times in the year for laughter

On Christmas day.

Navidad
