Track Name: The Evil Machine Is Broken
Hello friends and neighbors
It's time to show you the power of my evil machine
If you know what I mean
That is not an innuendo

Once it is activated
I'll be the master of the human race
I'm gonna rule this place
I'll have sharks with freakin' laser beams

So sit back and I'll turn it on
My domination won't take long
All I gotta do is flip this swith
Wait a second
I think we've got a glitch

The evil machine is broken
So I grab the phone and call up tech support
I really hope this call is short
I'm on hold for an hour

Finally talk to someone
But I get the feeling he's not of this land
An accent I can't understand
Man I swear this guy's from Boston

And he asked me if I plugged it in
Well of course I plugged it in
Only an idiot would have forgotten to...
um...
Looks like it's time to plug it in

You will bask in the glory of my evil machine
I will control the world, you will worship me as king
From atop my fortress I will enjoy the view
So won't you please be patient
Why did the screen turn blue

The evil machine is broken
And now tech support says they won't talk to me
Because it's out of warrantee
Should have got the extra warrantee

So I take it to the geek squad
They tell me I should have bought the evil iMachine
Like the letter I, not the evil eye
But I love to give the evil eye

They ran the updates and added some ram
Charged me a bundle and told me to scram
So wait for my conquest to begin
Looks like it's time to plug it in

You will bask in the glory of my evil machine
I will control the world, you will worship me as king
From atop my fortress I will enjoy the view
So won't you please be patient
It takes a while to boot
Track Name: Will You Be Forgotten
These are not the final lyrics, so I won't bother putting them here.
Track Name: No You
No You

Fame and power
A driving need
A wicked cunning
You're going to need it if you want to succeed
To get their money
And get their pride
But when they ask for something
Make sure you know a real good place to hide

So take your source of power
Bury it deep down in the ice
And at the final hour
No one will know the sacrifice
But make sure they know you
Because without them there is no you

The game is simple
An easy con
You show your dimples
Give them just a little taste and then it's on
They're standing in line
You make them want more
But don't take your sweet time
If they don't get what they need they're gonna hit the door

So take your source of power
Bury it deep down in the ice
And at the final hour
No one will know the sacrifice
But make sure they know you
Because without them there is

No use looking for another way
It always plays the same
You need them coming
You need them humming
And feeling wanted
A little haunted
So give them an inch
And they'll give you everything

Soon you'll be famous
An American God
But don't let them know your secret
Or they'll jump on you like a lightning rod
Cause they are selfish and needy
And in the end they'll show you that they're just plain greedy
They want your secret for themselves
And if you don't give it to them then they'll send you straight to hell

So take your source of power
Bury it deep down in the ice
And at the final hour
No one will know the sacrifice
But make sure they know you
Because without them there is no you
Track Name: Mark Blasco & Tai Shan - Hands Of Time
A leather belt stained with blood and tears
The folded cape has held that crease for years
This dresser drawer guards the life I know
I'm anxious, restless, it's too late to turn back now

The suit is on, the gloves are pulled up tight
The mask is drawn, I step into the night
But the street seems much darker than it once was
I'm frightened, and nervous, it's too late to turn back now

But I know
That it's too late to turn back, the choice was to fly or to fall
So each day I step closer to hearing the last curtain call
I serve justice and truth, with vengeance I fight crime
But now I'm throwing my punches into the past
Fighting the hands of time

I spent my life pushing back the tide
But water flows towards me from every side
Now the crashing of waves brings a deafening sound
I'm washed up, and wasted, just struggling not to drown

But I know
That It's too late to turn back, the choice was to fly or to fall
So each day I step closer to hearing the last curtain call
I serve justice and truth, with vengeance I fight crime
But now I'm throwing my punches into the past
Fighting the hands of time

Now I must fight this fight
Sacrifice all this night to set you free
From this evil tyranny
In the end it's them or me

The suit is on, the gloves are pulled up tight
The mask is drawn, I step into the night
Track Name: Did I Fall Asleep
Did I fall asleep
Have we met before
Why do I feel like we're on borrowed time
I can't quite place your face
I feel a bit confused
Maybe a treatment would help me feel fine

I'm walking in a sleepless dream
And when I wake who will I be

They say to live each day
Like it is your last
But I've been living my last life each day
I feel like a doll
About to fall apart
Can someone please tell me we'll all be OK

I'm walking in a sleepless dream
And when I wake who will I be
I'm living a borrowed life
With sanity balanced on a knife

I hear an echo
Of a lost November
But the thoughts won't come to me
Because I forgot to remember

I'm walking in a sleepless dream
And when I wake who will I be
I'm living a borrowed life
With sanity balanced on a knife

Did I fall asleep again
Did I fall asleep again
Track Name: Drop Of Rain
It wasn't always this
Remember when we'd kiss
We'd fill our days with sun
We'd laugh and run

We didn't want to see
A fear once bound set free
We left it locked away
Forgotten more each day

It seemed life lifetimes ago
When it first showed it's face
Now it's too late to ignore
We can't close that door again

And so we lived in pain
Just waiting for a rain
To wash the dust away
There was nothing we dared say

We learned to hide and see
Until it came for me
We knew this day might come
Nothing lasts forever
We can't stay together
Don't you dare turn back to see
Don't come back for me
Just run away

Now I feel no pain
I'm just a drop of rain
I have no choice but fall
And wash you away
