Track Name: Prayer
Waiting for the day
Waiting for the day
When money can't buy freedom
and God doesn't need us to pray

For forgiveness , for sins of decision
Made to profit from Death and Destruction and Pain
Oh why have you made me a Human
When humans are so far from humane?
Oh why must i wrestle these Demons?
When i just want to feel safe and sane?

Its a bitter pill to swallow, it's hard not to follow
The masses
Dangle cash like a carrot , you'll take, grin and bear it
You'll make your fortune son, Just you sign on the dotted line
Get in there, put in the time, Good money comes your way
Don't even try to be fooled by conscience
You gotta crush whatever's in your way

So when you're running and spinning in circles
Like rats we're just pacing the cage
We're only revolving, When will we start evolving
Beyond the industrial age?

So I keep waiting for the day
I just keep waiting for the day
I just keep waiting for the day
I just keep waiting for the day
When money can't buy freedom and God doesn't need us to pray
Track Name: Waging Peace
When the balance of peace is suspended in the absence of belief
And the memory of freedom is whispered to your heartstrings by the thief
When you rage in wild abandon in the silence of your soul to feel alive
You might grasp at straws of vision of your mission to remind you of your life
Now the drums of fate are calling, the melody of our future beckons you
Time to pick up all your weapons and fall in line to find what threatens you

We call you to Arms
We call you to Arms

There's a mystery in motion, it's floating on the ocean of belief
If you're ready to receive it, we're here to lift you from your grief
They say Jesus walked on water, he wanted us to follow whence he came
But we've given up our power, we've forgotten how we ever did the same
I'm not talking 'bout religion, got nothing to do with doing what you're told
What I'm talking about is freedom and it's way down deep inside your soul

We call you to Arms
We call you to Arms

When greed is all you live for and selfish is your self inside your shell
You create a purgatory, a special kind of living breathing hell
For you and all around you to compete in day and day and night by night
You wallow in possession, an obsession that blinds your own true sight

We call you to Arms
We call you to Arms
Track Name: Glencoe
I will wait for my love to come hither to me
I will wait for my love til dawn
I will stand pon the hill overlooking the glen
from where i was forced to flee
There's a glow on the hill in the vale below
There is smoke and the clamour of death
The screams of the dying and the ringing of steel
Are all i can hear in my soul

They came to the glen under auspice of peace
12 days and 12 nights, we'd treat them alike
As to kin of our own family
Never seeing the black in their treacherous hearts
For upon this past morn
In the hours before Dawn
As from hell they spewed forth, in full arms they were wrought
And Death was their only decree

So I ran for the hills as the blood ran thick
And the screams of my kin filled the air
Through wind and snow, we fled from the bowl
Of the glen we had always called home
The cold it cuts deep , as i stagger and weep
In the dark on the mountain alone
For behind in the glen, I have left all the men
To be butchered like so many sheep

For upon this past morn
In the hours before Dawn
As from Hell they spewed forth, in full arms they were wrought
An Death was their only decree

And not least among them, my love my Cheiftan
My Alistar McIan MClean
He sent me from his side, his love . his bride
As he ran to enter the fray
The last that i saw of my man in that horror was his hair
Flying free as the wind
With a glance over his shoulder, his beard white and silver
His eyes spoke to me one final plea

Survive Oh my Love , do not tarry here
For Death is all that is left
Know that I love you my woman my Queen
Our time has been our greatest gift
In the morning I shall be with you on the hill
In someway i'll always be near
But the time has now come, to end as begun
In battle i must die without fear...Die

I will wait for my love to come hither to me
I will wait for my love til Dawn
I lay my body down , on the cold hard ground
My body as cold as the snow
I will take my last breath as the air from my lungs
Exhales long as my soul lets go
Oh my love you have come and you're here by my side
I am warm as i feel your embrace
I reach out to my love as the sun comes up
And he softly caresses my face
