Chickenwarlord This is the emotional core of both of the albums, and sets the stage for the next two emotionally charged songs. I'm Not the Breakman emphasizes the humanity of even someone claiming to accepted the other half of his dual nature and really strikes at the heart of what makes these concept albums so compelling. Favorite track: I'm Not the Breakman.

Fly on a Dog 04:51
I feel so far from home Though you stand beside me I feel alone I've been built to make a choice Sent to war without one Let's destroy Your Light is going out on me Humanity is not what it seems As reality plays my darkest dreams I can fly on a dog The end is too far for us to see I'll make it with you here next to me I jump high on a dog He says son to save their lives You must take the life of one Wily dies How dare he call me son? When I'm clearly a weapon A loaded gun Father hides the truth in fear Maybe if he ignores it Will disappear Why did he give me voice? And still choose not to hear me Just white noise Your Light is going out on me It was you who built this uncertainty This is your answer Another machine I'm just another machine Humanity is not what it seems As reality plays my darkest dreams I can fly on a dog The end is too far for us to see I'll make it with you here next to me I can drive in a dog Underwater No shoulder to cry on a dog.

An old fighter's gloves Hanging on the wall It's been too long A challenger has called Now you stand to lose Everything you see Unless you stand up For what you believe You've got fists for hands An iron jaw But now they say The Hard Man's gotten soft You've got the steel You've got the might Get back your edge You will win this fight Steel of the champion Your legend will live on Our sons will sing your song Harder than steel You're coming back Word travels fast You will not be A relic from the past You see the crowd You hear the cheers They're still with you All through these years This is your chance This is your town You don't just break the mold You beat it down You've got back the touch You've got back the power You've trained so hard This is your finest hour Steel of the champion Your legend will live on Our sons will sing your song Harder than steel The bell rings out There's no turning back now They're on your side Just fight like you know how He throws a jab You land a hook He's on the ropes That's when you see the look The tide has turned You've got nothing left They say throw in the towel But that you won't accept You're going down It's the final swing As the lights go out The crowd begins to sing The crowd begins to sing Harder than steel Harder than steel Harder than steel Harder than steel Steel of the champion Your legend will live on Our sons will sing your song Harder than steel Harder than steel!

GeminEye 05:04
Gemini Stars are out tonight They're shining bright Our sign is up in the sky The stars don't lie Think I need A private eye Gemineye Someone wants me dead That's what you said So I called on you What can I do Learn his name Pick apart the clues Gemini I don't want to die It's not your time Ignore the zodiac I'll watch your back You'll make up For what I lack My private eye We're never going to make it Look to the sky Someone is out to get me The Gemini I've had all I can take I think it's time I go my separate ways Gemini When I close my eyes It's time to hide I'm stepping back Then I attack You speak for me Everything goes black Gemineye How could I be so blind Falling behind We're alike in mind Two of a kind But it's getting lost With the more you find Gemini I forget my name It's all the same So I'm taking yours Of course of course We're trapped in here Someone locked the door My private eye We're never going to make it Look to the sky Someone is out to get me The Gemini I've had all I can take I think it's time I go my separate ways The clues had lead us to a dead end How dead we would soon see There was a sound As the door locked behind us We were trapped And the Gemineye Was anything but surprised The night was seeming to stretch on forever And for us it would This was the end And now the gloves were off The truth was out The hired gun was on his way And we were both As good as dead But I looked to the stars And I swore If we were both taking the big sleep I'd take the rat out myself My private eye We're never going to make it Look to the sky Someone is out to get me The Gemini I've had all I can take I think it's time I go my separate ways I think we'll never Leave this deadly place I know we'll never See the light of day Again

This is not my home It's where I'm locked away It's in my design It's not my circuitry This is not who I am You'll never see me behind this killer's face These aren't my hands These needles take their place Was this all part of the plan Would you believe this isn't me That what you get isn't what you see I'm not a bad guy I'm just designed that way No matter what I try I can't help but hurt those close to me And I can't see a way out this time Wait, get to the point It's hard to blame them I even scare myself Built to kill seems to be detrimental to my health I guess I should have known He's on his way down I hear him just above I guess it's his job When pushing comes to shove At least I won't be alone Would you believe this isn't me That what you get isn't what you see Deep underground, ten miles down A man stands below the city he will destroy, Stop How can I retract these claws Those are your hands You can't take back the damage you cause How can I take off this mask That is your face You can't remove the fear you cast How can I turn off this hatred that fills my eyes You can't shut down where your path lies When can I stop being bad That is who you are If that's who I am Then I'll fight who I am! I'm not a bad guy I'm just designed that way No matter what I try I can't help but hurt those close to me And now I see a way out this time

This training made me ninja It spreads and kills who I used to be I am shadow you are my enemy Incoming, drawing closer This darkness can't help swallow me whole These shadows hyperactive Save my soul, Say goodbye to the Light The darkness grows I'm league with the shadow I can feel the good in me is dying slow Turning off the sun Running through the night I am the knife in a gunfight Evil left its mark So tell me - Are you afraid of the dark? I feel it taking over My past is quickly falling away Battle is what it craves now Kept at bay The me that used to be here Has gone away but I can't say where I fear I may have killed him I'm so scared, Say goodbye to the Light The darkness grows I'm league with the shadow I can feel the good in me is dying slow Turning off the sun Running through the night I am the knife in a gunfight Evil left its mark So tell me - Are you afraid of the dark? I feel it tearing me apart Are you afraid of the dark I feel the shadow in my heart Are you afraid of the dark Say goodbye to the Light The darkness grows I'm league with the shadow I can feel the good in me is dying slow Turning off the sun Running through the night I am the knife in a gunfight Evil left its mark So tell me - Are you afraid of the dark?

Sometimes I can't see the blue through the red Hard to see the good through your trail of dead You say you'll do all you can to save them Killing your own won't make you human I woke to turn this man to cinder Circuits afire as I remember Again I hear a promise spoken My rage repairs what once was broken They lost me Forgot me Made you from parts of me If you're The One My Father's son Then what am I supposed to be? You say these things you do are what you choose This thing you call your will I call a ruse We follow our path, we walk the program I've accepted the machine I am I wear a mask to hide what's been erased How do you kill a man who has your face My heart is gone there's only fire I've met my maker and the man's a liar They lost me Forgot me Made you from parts of me If you're The One My father's son Then what am I supposed to be? What am I? I had a name My father called me Blues He tore my heart from my chest To give to you I'm not broken I'm not the Breakman I was the first I am the Protoman! They lost me Forgot me Made you from parts of me If you're The One My father's son Then what am I supposed to be? What am I supposed to be?

So we finally meet Two prodigal sons in the eye of the storm You say that you stand for peace But you're the one geared for war I'm unlike the others you've seen I'm free from the failings of humanity I've seen the end And you are the key my friend γ:\there_will_be/PEACE How can there be peace while two sides stand You're a machine who calls himself a man You fight for a dream that can never be Your arguments are noise It's time to make your choice γ:\it's_[indecision]_that/DESTROYS And what of you The shadows can't hide the rage in your steel You say you don't care at all But if he died tell me would you feel You wait for the choice to be made You're afraid your purpose has been taken away If you side with me I will show you the way γ:\there_will_be/PEACE How can there be peace while two sides stand You're a machine who calls himself a man You fight for a dream that can never be Your arguments are noise It's time to make your choice You've been here before (How can there be peace) You know what's in store (You're just a machine) Mankind is obsolete (You're dreaming) History will repeat (History will repeat) This could be the last time (This could be the last time) One last time (One last time) You fight for a dream That can never be Your arguments are noise It's time to make your choice How can there be peace while two sides stand You're a machine who calls himself a man You fight for a dream that can never be Your arguments are noise It's time to make your choice γ:\it's_[indecision]_that/DESTROYS, γ:\error,.error,.err0000#@%

Father you once told me You had a dream You would build a better world You gave us the machine Betrayal, mistakes Have made you lose faith But you've come too far to turn around There's too much at stake You need to see the Light again So open the door When I come back we'll start again The way it was before The way it was before, I refuse to believe That I'm nothing more than a machine I refuse to believe That we can't learn to see The truth was in a dream I will not kill No I will – believe. Brother if we walk the program Then what system do you serve Is your song just lines of code Or something that you heard And now you want to know What you're supposed to be Stop pretending you don't have a choice Only that can set you free And now you want to burn the world Into the ground This rage is not your destiny It's holding you down It's holding you down, I refuse to believe That I'm nothing more than a machine I refuse to believe That we can't learn to see The truth was in a dream I will not kill No I will – believe. Believe me when I say If this could end today I'd do it, I would For his crimes Should his life I take Does that mean no man or machine Can learn from his mistakes No man or machine Is more than their mistakes I refuse to believe That I'm nothing more than a machine I refuse to believe That we can't learn to see The truth was in a dream I will not kill I refuse to believe That I'm nothing more than a machine I refuse to believe That we can't learn to see The truth was in a dream I will not kill No I will...

The detonation shook the walls It was coming down The empty halls filled with flame And everything was burning to the ground I called your name, I tried to warn But you didn't hear You were torn Between the hero and your fears And I wish that I could be The One To finally show the way And I wish that I could be The One Who knew just what to say But I know that there is nothing I could ever say or do Because you're The One The doctor chose you to be his son, If I was standing where you are I think I would have done what father wants But now I know what I'd become He said to me that I would be That I would be the Light when they couldn't see That what they need is a machine That would give them hope That could keep them free That when they'd fall still he would stand A savior built by human hands It seems so strange, so very odd A hero's father could be so very flawed, An apology so sorry for the man he was For the father he couldn't be That I would not be what I was built to be If I had a heart it would have broken to see his face To see my family And The One who took my place There is a song I hear A melody from the past When I woke for the first time When I slept for the last You are The One The hero who will stand Do not blame father He is only a man What was filled with rage finally understands Man is not without mistake Unlike that which he builds from his hands Though my fate is broken my path I cannot see Though you are the chosen I'll make my own history, There is a song I hear A melody from the past When I woke for the first time When I slept for the last You are The One The hero who will stand Do not blame father He is only a man
