Track Name: Sins of the Father
Too many around me are like
Getting to my head
Sometimes got me feeling
I’m better off dead

I found myself made out to be someone
Who died a long time ago
Tow the party line now son
Or the Whip will unfurl

Do what I say
Don’t do like I do
Be from me
But don’t do the things that I done

It comes to my mind
That what you see is what you get
I’m at this time in my life
Where the weight of burden is debt

Inherited obligations
Way back down my ancestral line
Got me leading my life
That doesn’t feel like it’s mine

Do what I say
Just don’t do what I do
Be from me
But just don’t do the things that I done

When I was in my Fathers house
Strict rules were inferred
Some things never spoken of
Children seen but not heard

Now fate has befallen me
And my Father is who I am
Subconscious patterns unwittingly
Made me pay for being the son of that man

Do what I say
Just don’t do like I do
Be from me
But don’t do the things that he done

The sins of the Father
Sins of the Father visit the Son
The sins of the Father
Sins of the Father visit the Son
Track Name: Tales to Tell
Tales were told and lore created
Now time moves on
But it won’t be long
Till they come again

Thinking back
I do recall the seeds of this
Were sown some time ago
Reality check, I got to get a grip on it

These are the days that most stress me in my life
I’m spending my time living a life I can’t relate to
Please help me find a way through
I don’t know if I’ve got to go
The dice say I got to stay the runes I got to

In days of old Tales were created
Those Tales retold
With much regret and feeling

Thinking back
I do recall the seeds of this
Were sown some time ago
Reality check now I got to get a grip on it

These are the days that most test me in my life
I’m talking to my guide now he won’t help me
Please help me find a way through
I don’t know if I’ve got to go
The dice say I’ve got to stay the runes I’ve got to

Tarot tales were emanated
From source of all that is created
Major Arcana, Hanged Man down
The seeds of this were sown so long ago
My reality’s checked now I got to get a grip on it

This is the day that most test me in all of my lives
I’m talking to Gabriel but he won’t tell me what to do
Please help me find a way through
I don’t know if I’ve got to go
The dice say I’ve got to stay the runes I got to

This is the day that most depress me in all of my life
I’m looking for a way out but I can’t find one
Please I got to find a way through
I don’t know if I can go on
I keep asking for help to get out of this Hell but it’s all gone
Track Name: D/T
Isn’t it enough when I say I need you?
Isn’t it enough that I came to see you?
Then I walk away
There are times when I cry
All I want is to be with you
But the truth is sometimes
I wanna be alone
Don’t want to be a two
At this time anyway

Decisions over time
And I can’t get over mine
You wanna take me home
But I just want to go back to my Hotel
I didn’t go with you that night
I want me to stay in you heart
Not your head
I was trying to make it right
Now I can’t believe
How things have turned out this way

Isn’t it enough when I say I feel you?
Isn’t it enough when I say I’ll wait for you?
Now you won’t talk to me
There are times when I cry
All I want is to be with you
But the truth is sometimes
I wanna be a one
Don’t want ot be a two
At this time anyway

Decisions over time
And I can’t get over mine
I wanna be with you
Just don’t wanna know about the pain
You’re going to put me through
I didn’t go with you that night
I wan me to stay in your heart
Not your bed
I was making up for lost time
Now I can’t believe
How things have turned out this way

It’s 3 in the morning
My sheets are drenched with sweat
You etiquette gave due warning
I can’t believe the things that were said
In my name declared
You know those words pain me
This Tale tells passage of time
Reveal an old lie
That girl betrayed me
And now I feel that pain
I feel that pain again
When you walk my way
Remind me of that day
It’s like a repeat in time
Unresolved issues rewind
Lessons not learnt the first time
Come back to haunt me

[Chorus x2]
Track Name: The Circus
Staring at the newborn sun 

gently rolls the caravan
dreamers, lovers and false friends

half the time you just pretend
pain and pleasure, smiles and tears

gliding slowly through the years

As you're winding down the road

you don't realise you're growing old
and you don't want to understand

why there's nothing left to mend
and there's nothing left to say

sleeping through another day

Every time you take a step

and you try not to look back
makes you wiser in the end

as you start to understand
Never mind loss and gain 

the journey still remains (x3)
