Track Name: Silver Dagger
Cast out of the warband, turned out from His Grace
The skin on his back flayed open, no longer can he show his face
In the hall where he served his Gwerbret, defended him with his life
Came crashing down one mead-soaked night, a victim of his vice

And so the long road beckons, his word arm earns his keep,
A Silver Dagger in his belt, a sign of the Wyrd that he has reaped
Suspicious eyes, they follow, his shame for all to see
With his head held high in the star-struck night, bearing his tattered dignity

O, Silver Dagger, riding the long road through the night
Forsaken Warrior, dishonored, for the coin he fights
Disgraced fallen sell-sword, wandering the rest of his days,
And when he dies in battle, no bard will ever sing his praise.

A life of hardship and tales of woe, is what awaits him on this long and winding road
A trail of grief, regret, and broken hearts, a hollow purpose, with honor torn apart…

An empty life with bloodstained hands, a mercenary with no kin, no clan, no hope
Adrift exile, hardened, battle-scored, he will not rest until his honor is restored

A Silver Dagger’s luck, comes roaring through with pride
A Silver Dagger’s pride, runs deep within his heart
A Silver Dagger’s heart, honor stained for all his life
A Silver Dagger’s life, is the price he pays for his luck
Track Name: In Your Face
you wanna be the way i am but you could never understand
you shave your fucking head then you turn your back on your best friends,
it's not just in my head
it's in my heart
(it's in my heart)
and you're not gonna
tear this one apart

the way you look it fits how come your attitude is shit?
you do it your own way but now i have the price to pay
it's not just in my head
it's in my heart
(it's in my heart)
if i can give a fuck
you better start, so...

use your head be aware
give a fuck!

the same routine, fuck up again, you have no real regrets
but this is not just something i can easily forget
it's not just in my head
it's in my heart
(it's in my heart)
and you're not gonna
tear this one apart

i can't believe you've come this far, yet still so unaware
no cause no brains no fire inside when will you ever learn to care

it's not just in my head
it's in my heart
(it's in my heart)
if i can give a fuck
you better start, so...

use your head be aware
give a fuck!
Track Name: Major Tom
Standing there alone, the ship is waiting
All systems are go, are you sure?
Control is not convinced
But the computer has the evidence
No need to abort

The countdown starts

Watching in a trance, the crew is certain
Nothing left to chance, all is working
Trying to relax, up in the capsule
"Send me up a drink", jokes Major Tom
The count goes on

4, 3, 2, 1
Earth below us, drifting falling
Floating weightless, calling calling home

Second stage is cut, we're now in orbit
Stabilizers up, running perfect
Starting to collect, requested data
What will it effect, when all is done
Thinks Major Tom

Back at ground control, there is a problem
Go to rockets full, not responding
Hello Major Tom, are you receiving
Turn the thrusters on, we're standing by
There's no reply

4, 3, 2, 1
Earth below us, drifting, falling
Floating, weightless, calling, calling, home

Across the stratosphere
A final message, "Give my wife my love"
Then nothing more

Far beneath the ship, the world is mourning
They don't realize, he's alive
No one understands but Major Tom sees
Now the light commands, this is my home
I'm coming home

Earth below us, drifting, falling
Floating, weightless, coming home
Earth below us, drifting, falling
Floating, weightless, coming home

Earth below us, drifting, falling
Floating, weightless, coming, coming home
Home
