Track Name: Come Inside
Sung by the Sirens

I am here for you
Anything you want
I will do for you

Come inside
Come inside
Let me hold you
Let me scold you
Come inside
Come inside
My lips upon you
Your beautiful
Your beautiful

I am here for you
I want to touch you
Wrap myself around you

Come down with me
I am not a tease
I am here to please

Come inside
Come inside
Let me hold you
Let me scold you
Come inside
Come inside
My lips upon you
Your beautiful
Your beautiful
Track Name: Who Am I
Sung by Peter Fox

Something in me knows
I have waited a lifetime to live
All that I had is what
I wanted to give

Something in me knows
I am empty without you
I feel the burden to be
Weighs down on me
Nothing matters to me right now
I know what I have to do
I'll find a way to get through
somehow

Now all of this is too strange
It turns my head around
It makes me want to hide
And I wonder
Who am I
Track Name: Rapatative 5
Now we're gonna go fast
Better listen to me
Got a lot on our mind
As we tell the story

Peter's a little unnerved
Like hey what's the deal
Slicing up a chicken
At the start of the meal

It wasn't just the deed
But the way it was done
The thrill of the crowd
Like killing is fun

The girls who brought the feast
All painted in white
Naked and precise
Like shades in the night

So Peter takes his time
And he soon disappears
A space to get away
Until his head clears

But voices down the way
Push the Fox into a room
then the hands turn the lock
See how the Fox can zoom

Into a closet space
As the two step inside
Owen and Abraxius
Come to talk and hide

Owen says now I say
With the utmost respect
Better deal with the Fox
Because I detect

A seething annoyance
From our dear Number 1
And you could be hurt
When all's said and done

(continued)


I hear that the plans
Are now in place
The new reichstaad fire
To bring with great haste

The wae that we need
To gain control
Of all the resources
That is ours to hold

The vaccines are ready
For mass genocide
With new microchips
So no one cab hide

We don't need distractions
Let's stay focused now
I hope you get my point
Don't ask why, who, or how

Owen my dear, It's all in my hands
It's all under control
And after tonight
I'll own his own soul

He'll split into pieces
Of that you can be sure
There really ain't much
10,000 volts won't cure

I may not ever get
Any more of his big hits
But I don't really care
I've had enough of this shit

Now as they leave the room
Chills run down his spine
Peter Fox realizes
He's run out of time

It's time to escape
Time to get away
Sneak out the back door
Or he's gonna pay
Track Name: Rooms
Sung by Peter Fox

The art of your betrayal
Took me by surprise
The ice inside my veins
Has opened up my eyes

I think I'll try the backdoor
A rat caught in a maze
I'm wondering ever deeper
And there beneath the haze

Was a room that was black
And another with chains
There was a room made of leather
And another filled with drains

Then I saw a coffin
A voice spoke of genocide
I found a deep dark corner
A place where I could hide

And that is where I found her
Sleeping on a bed
Scarlet wrapped in crimson
And roses on her head

Wake up darling angel
I've come to get you out
But when she looked into my eyes
Her face was filled with doubt
Track Name: Who Are You
Sung by Valentina Willing & Peter Fox

V - Who are you
Do I know you
Have I seen you before

You act as though
You know me
Will you tell me more

Who are you
I am waiting
Do you hold the key

Tell me
What do you want
And that is what I'll be

P - Don't you know me
There's something in your mind
Don't you know me
A distant memory for you to find
Don't you know me
Don't you know me

V - Who are you
Do I know you
Have I seen you before

Tell me
Can you show me
A pathway to the door
Track Name: Like A Dream
Sung by Peter Fox & Valentina Willing

P - Sweet comfort child
No more time for sorrow
Be still inside
Now is our tomorrow

V - Like a dream
You are
Like a dream
So close to me
Don't let this be
A dream a dream

P - Fate has by chance
Brought me here to you
Come take my hand
What did they do

V - Like a dream
You are Like a dream
So close to me
Don't let this be
A dream a dream

take my hand i understand
you are the one let’s stay together
i’ll be your strength i’ll be your guide
i’ll always be here by your side
let’s fly away into the night
just like a bird on freedoms flight
Track Name: Rapatative 6
He unties, he unties her
He unties, he unties her
She holds him as he holds her
She holds him as he holds her

He leads her to the doorway
But in comes Abraxius
Darth Vader got nothing on him
Cool and sharp with a sardonic grin

He chides Peter all smart and smug
He steps inside along with a thug
Peter tries to put up a fight
He's some got moves and does alright

So two more come and break him down
They take his feet and take his crown
They tie him up onto a bed
Which rolls on wheels and away he's led

Abraxius smiles and says no fear
Cause very soon all will be clear
We'll fix you up and take good care
Of all the things the gross and rare

This will be your experience
First you gain acceptance
Just relax I'll plug you in
So now let the games begin
Track Name: I Will Take You Deeper
Sung by Abraxius

Sit down look in my eyes
This snake will mesmerize
And soon I will reveal
The shocking and surreal

I will take you deeper
And deeper
And deeper
I will take you deeper
And deeper
And deeper

To shatter up your mind
The truth is so unkind
What I drink is sour
This is my finest hour

I will take you deeper
And deeper
And deeper
I will take you deeper
And deeper
And deeper
Track Name: The Taste Of Blood
Sung by Number One

Come into my chamber
I have waited so long
What terrors await
Where none can abate
A passion so strong

You tremble in fright
Eyes widen with sight
Of crimson filling the night

You realize
And you cry
It's too late
I've sucked you dry

The taste of blood
The taste of blood
The taste of blood
Gives me the power
Track Name: U Mutherfuckers/Escape
Sung by Humpy Dampster

You mutherfuckers
I thought it was a game
Now I know it's you to blame
I never thought to wonder why
But now it's really time that I should say goodbye

You mutherfuckers
I never thought it was for real
I didn't sign up for this deal
I never thought to wonder why
But now I'm glad that I can see you die

You thought you had control
But I should let you know
That I cannot be told
And I have not been sold
I don't know what you are
But now it's gone too far
It's where I draw the line
And I ain't doing time no way

You mutherfuckers
You're trying to play on me
But I am never going to be
Another dog without a btain
Or like a monkey on a chain

You mutherfuckers
Never liked your kind of sleaze
It made me feel like a disease
And even though you made me high
I think it's time you kissed my ass goodbye

You thought you had control
But I should let you know
That I cannot be told
And I have not been sold
I don't know what you are
But now it's gone too far
It's where I draw the line
And I ain't doing time no way
You're all the things I hate
You creeps think you are great
But I will say no dice
To a human sacrifice
I see now what you are
Not human that's for sure
We're gonna get away
To breath another day
Track Name: Rapture
Sung by Peter Fox

I've lived my dream
And through it all\
I've kept my faith
Even when my back was against the wall

I've no regrets
The things I've seen
If I had a choice
I swear I'd do it all again

This trial by fire
Has made me what I am
Now nothing can break me down
No nothing will ever break me again

What did you find
What did you find along the way
What did you find
What did you find to blow your mind
Did you try
Did you try to change the world
Did you try
Did you save the human race
Make this a better place
Everyone knew your face
Give me just a little space

But the crime you see
The lie so big
All for control
See how they fall
The place to start
Would have to be
Number 7 on the BBC

And in the end
It's all the same
Through this illusion
Still glad that I cams

And through it all
I've come to see
That all the roads
Lead back to me
