Track Name: This Is The Witching Hour
THIS IS THE WITCHING HOUR

This is the witching hour
Got you in my sights
This is the witching hour
Don’t fight
This is the witching hour
I’m practiced at what I do
This is the witching hour
You won’t feel a thing as you fall in love with me

This is the witching hour
I’m gonna put a spell on you

Eye of toad
The blood from an innocent soul
The essence of unicorn
Soon you will be forlorn
There is no anti-dote

This is the witching hour
I’m gonna put a spell on you

You will fall in love hopelessly and do anything for me
Anything I want
I control you
You will do anything for me
Kill for me
Destroy for me
This is the killing hour

My claws scratch you raw
You are mine forever more
Bewitched by me
You have to give in to me

This is the witching hour
I’m gonna put a spell on you
Track Name: No More Dark Clouds
NO MORE DARK CLOUDS

Dark Clouds
I have the power to make them disappear
No more dark clouds
No more dark clouds
No more dark clouds

No more dark clouds

I may sometimes battle the dark clouds
but I know the sun is always there behind them
At some point the sun will shine on me

Behind the dark clouds
there is sun
I will dream the dark clouds gone
I have the power to make them disappear
No more
No more
No more
No more dark clouds
No more dark clouds

Behind the dark clouds
there is sun
I have the power to make them disappear
I have the power to make them
disappear

No more dark clouds
No more dark clouds
Today can be a wonderful place
Today can be a wonderful place
Today, today, today

Behind the dark clouds there is sun
I will dream the dark clouds gone
I have the power to make them disappear
No more dark clouds
No more dark clouds

Behind the dark clouds
there is sun
I have the power to make them disappear
I have the power to make them
disappear

No more dark clouds
No more dark clouds
Today can be a wonderful place
Today can be a wonderful place
Today, today, today

I know the sun is there behind them

There is sun....
Track Name: SoulCatcher
SOULCATCHER

What becomes of the days with no story to tell
Are they remembered
What happens when they are done
Are they just lost to tomorrow

For too long I’ve been trapped in this world
Seeing many lives come and go
I am a soul catcher looking for your soul

I want to change today in to tomorrow
Complete my tale
Tell the world what we have seen

My story started long ago
When I sold the devil my soul
In partnership we roamed this earth
Many souls I found for him

I am a soul catcher
Stealing your tomorrow

I wanted the world
I gave my soul in exchange for gold
Now I have what I want

For hundreds of years
I have taken from men
But I have grown old
He set me free
But the hunt is part of me
I am the soul catcher stealing your tomorrow

Watch out for my smile
Don’t accept a welcoming hug
We all have the devil in us
I’m looking for your soul
Don’t fight I have control
Let me take what I need
Give in to me

I am a soul catcher stealing your tomorrow
Track Name: I Can See The Killing
I CAN SEE THE KILLING

The reason is simple
I love you
Your smile lights my day
When you’re here there is blue sky
Only the good can thrive

They say there is someone special for everyone
When you look in their eyes you’ll know
Meeting you I knew that time had come

You have to stay with me
I am the one that you need
Please don’t tell me you have to go
We have no place in this war

I can see the killing
I can feel the hate
As the blood flows
Tell me is it too late

Take from me
Take what I need
You don’t know the souls you stole
As you make that choice
You dig their graves

I can see the killing
I feel the hate
As the blood flows
Tell me is it too late

Do you have a heart
Is there not a better way
Pointless death
Pointless life
I see no hope in war just your token sacrifice

If he returns all will have changed
If you have seen war you stared Satan in the face
Can you keep your eyes open and not feel a thing
Can you hear the screams and yet not hear a thing
Can you smell the fear when you breath
Can you feel the hate that creeps within
Can you reason with the dead when they ask you why
Can you live knowing you are the reason they died
Can you listen to the wind
Can you listen as it sings
For the souls who fought for you
For their loved ones who died too

I can see the killing
I feel the hate
As the blood flows
Tell me is it too late
Track Name: The Old Field
THE OLD FIELD

Take my hand
Trust me
Be with me here forever
Lay beside me
Beside me here forever

The old field will be our place to meet
When your heart is ready to allow me in
Close your eyes
Close your eyes
Close your eyes

I will be your breath
You will be my air
Beyond life together
No one can take you from me
If I take you first
If I take you first
If I take you first

They will find us holding hands
As we lay in the long grass
Cold to the touch
But so much in love
Never will we be apart
Never will we be apart

The old field will be our place to meet
When your heart is ready to allow me in
Close your eyes my love
Close your eyes
Close your eyes my love
Close your eyes

Your pain will be swift
The release so sweet
For your love belongs to me
The old field you will never leave

Together in death as we are in life
Always together
Never ever apart
I have your heart
I have your heart

Close your eyes my love
Close your eyes
Close your eyes my love
Close your eyes
Track Name: Dizzy Spell
DIZZY SPELL

He has a heart so cold
He makes me dizzy
When he loves me

He has a heart so cold
He makes me dizzy
When he loves me

Waking up I’m waking up
To the truth
Standing here, I am standing here
On the ice flow
In love I’m in love I’m in love
With a heart so cold

I need his cold heart. I am the only one
No one would go there
No one would go there and survive; he has a one track mind
Faster than a ninja when it hits you

Hits you like a fast train
Hits you like cold rain
Hits you like a fast train
Hits you like cold rain

Hits you like a fast train
Dizzy Spells

--

He
He has a heart so cold

He
He has a heart so cold
He makes me dizzy when he loves me

Frozen
He has a heart that’s frozen
He
He has a heart so cold
He is so cold

Empty
His heart is empty
Broken

He brings broken love but I need that
He brings broken Love

Why
Why do I love him
I need his touch so cold

He brings broken love

Track Name: AndAWan & RaeRae featuring ProgRockDan1 - Dancing With The Devil
DANCING WITH THE DEVIL

You gave me back my heart
Made me journey far and wide
Took my gift and left me standing
Standing in the curliest place
Somewhere between love and hate

I walked a thousand miles
Just to see your smile
Through the darkest night
Across the lands of the dead
Through the fires of hell
I gave you my heart
I journeyed far and wide
To give you this prize

But you gave me back my heart
Now I journey back
Through the ice and snow
To lands I don’t know

I had no idea why

Why you gave me back my heart

Baby I can take the beating I can live with pleading
Now my hearts on show
I can walk the fine line I can be so fine the only girl you’ll want to know
You can play field babe
You can source the next rave
But I’m where you need to go
Come to my warm arms let me show you my charms
Let me give you lovin like you’ve never known

It could be better than better
We could be always and forever
You don’t have to leave babe
You can be mine

But you gave me back my heart
Now I journey back

Walking on shifting sand
Sands of time redefine my outline
Crossing the deepest sea I became me
Climbing mountains to your heart, I slipped and fell
Along the darkest forest path
I lost direction and came back
around

As I walk away
I won’t look back
As I walk away
I won’t look back

I journey to your soul
But you’re at ground zero
As I climbed I saw you way behind
I knew it was goodbye
Now I’m free to run
No need to hide

Livin with you was never easy
loved you more than you will ever know
Through the ups and down
Through the down and downs
To the bottom of it all

Baby I no longer want you
Baby I no longer need you
repeat

We coulda been so fine
But now I’ve moved on
No longer can you feed from me
No longer can you can you destroy me
I’m gonna let your love go

The journey changed me
On the journey I became me

Why
