Track Name: The Voice Of Reason
It took a blow to the head
And I realized what I
Was put on this earth to achieve
It showed me the way
So make an example of me
Hang me up from the tallest tree
Make an example of me

This is not the voice of reason
It's the cross I was chosen to bear
This is not the voice of reason

My time has surely come
I'm as guilty as can be
This is treason
In the first degree
Now the gallows tree
she calls to me by name
There can be no reprieve for me now
In this lifetime

This is not the voice of reason
It's the cross I was chosen to bear
This is not the voice of reason

Make an example of me
Make an example of me
Track Name: Twenty-Five Sins
Call off your witch hunt
This time the french are not to blame
Your justice is heaven sent
I bid you farewell I'll see you in hell

This town is burning down
This town is burning down
This town is burning down

You've consumed and consumed and consumed
The very soul of this city
It's a sin
Will you be surprised when the flames
Consume you as God claims his retribution

This town is burning down
This town is burning down
This town is burning down

This town is burning down
This town is burning down
This town is burning down
Track Name: The Deception
They said it couldn't be done
And so it seems
I proved them all wrong

In spite of them
I have become
The chosen one

This is the devil's game
This is a holiday
This is the devil's game
It turns me on

All I ever wanted
Is a little revolution
But here I sit
With my head in my hands
Lost in a sea of deception

And this ship won't let me sink
And the wind won't talk about
England expects
England expects

If you feed them a lie
They will take it and run
And who could blame them

This is the devil's game
This is a holiday
This is the devil's game
This is a holiday
Track Name: Spencer Perceval
You could have saved yourself
I gave you more than one chance
"I Am Murdered, I Am Murdered" you cried
Well, well,
You could have survived

I will rot, a broken man, in this green and pleasant land
Your position can't save you now
(Your position can't save you)
You were the finger on my trigger
And the rope around my neck
As you were as well

Your position can't save you now
You could have saved yourself
I gave you more than one chance
"I Am Murdered, I Am Murdered" you cried
Well, well,
If the truth be told
It is I that will meet my demise at your hands Mr. Perceval
I am murdered
You will hang a guilty man in England's green and pleasant land

Your position (you were the rope around my neck) can't save you now (you were the finger on my trigger)
Your position can't save you now (you were the rope around my neck)
Your position can't save you now
As the bullet flies, you cannot hide behind
Your position (you were the rope around my neck) can't save you now (you were the finger on my trigger)
Your position can't save you now (you were the rope around my neck)
Your position can't save me now (you were the finger on my trigger)
Your position can't save me now
Track Name: Death Is The End
Fate smiles at it's funny little ways
As it put pay to a promising career

They prophesied of their own demise
It was too good to resist
It was too good to resist

Death it is the end more or less

As you lie here, does it feel
As if it was such a good idea
In tempting fate
Are you sorry now?
Are you sorry now?

Death it is the end more or less
Bar funeral trains and rotting flesh
