Track Name: Cascade
Devote your heart to the power from the start
Lightning currency, electricity

Open your minds, open your eyes
I’ll draw volts from the sky
Current flowing through me
Providing all you need

I will recharge, I will renew
Pull from the heavens and give unto you
Shining voltage, blinding truth

Observe and celebrate this day of Cascade
Devote your prayer to my power,
Strong and fair

Open your minds, open your eyes
I’ll draw volts from the sky
Current flowing through me
Providing all you need

I will recharge, I will renew
Pull from the heavens and give unto you
Shining voltage, blinding truth
Track Name: Electric Dreams
Dreams cannot show the path yet untold
For even in dreams my secret’s unknown
Electric soul, transmitting hand
Will give me away to this land

They cannot know the power in me
This caustic burden would blind them to see
You can believe in Pharaoh’s lies
Though it is I who keeps us alive

Electric heart, circuit of pain
It’s only blood in these veins
Electric soul, transmitting hand
Will give me away to this land

Scars on my skin burn from within
Time is wearing thin
Cannot explain the power or pain
The secret I contain

Electric heart, circuit of pain
It’s only blood in these veins
Electric soul, transmitting hand
Will give me away to this land
Track Name: Tell Me Dimmer
Tell me Dimmer what you’re doing
Is the sky above not blueing?
The unseen hand that stirs the pot
Not deep within you stewing?

Tell me Dimmer what you’re doing
Is your power not accruing?
Are the hops and grains and acid rains
In Dimmerville not brewing?

Tell me boy does in thee lie
A secret most confusing?
A danger lies behind your eyes
For our two minds are fusing

Not East or West, not high or low
Nor from the high horns bewing
The place you seek is far beneath
The Egypt you are viewing

Tell me Dimmer what you’re doing
Is the secret worth pursuing?
Your people worth the torment
And your city worth renewing?
Track Name: Puzzle in Time
I can’t sleep - only hear the sound
Of our system breaking down
Reason, logic - clouding my mind
Father’s meaning I try to find

Papyrus scapes fill my dreams
Showing a truth unseen
My purpose starts to unwind
A puzzle in time

A talisman - my father’s pride
Rescue friends and lose my ties
I am from the upper tier
My family - my fall they fear

Papyrus scapes fill my dreams
Showing a truth unseen
My purpose starts to unwind
A puzzle in time

Everything changes!

Friendships in which I believe
Showing a truth unseen
Our generations unwind
A puzzle in time
Track Name: Jailhouse
TARIQ:
You had this power in your hands
What? You didn’t think I’d understand?
You’re no fighter, no, you’re not like me
But I’ve never kept anything unseen

I always confide in you
My brother my friend
You’ve made it clear to me
You don’t do the same

CHENZIRA:
I didn’t mean to let you down
I didn’t want it to get around
My own mother doesn’t know
I was scared to...

TARIQ:
Why didn’t you let me know?
I feel cheated, I feel betrayed
Why’d you think that I’d give it away?
How could you live in secrecy?
You really hurt me Chenzi!

CHENZIRA:
Sorry that I never told
Thought I couldn’t trust a soul
I saw my future! I was on my own
I have this power, but no control!

For such a long time I’ve felt so alone

TARIQ:
Because you kept this all to your own!

CHENZIRA:
I couldn’t trust you to keep this quiet

TARIQ:
How could you keep this inside?

CHENZIRA & TARIQ:
Now what from here?
Made your (my) own prison
What can I say? / Why won’t you listen?

TARIQ:
Why do you run?

CHENZIRA:
You made me the chosen one!
Track Name: Power in the Dark
TARIQ:
The time is now, the fight begins
Hidden skills lie deep within
With a weapon we all have a voice

The people rise - the Pharaoh falls
The people fight - send out the call
The day has come - there is no other choice!
The lion’s at the door
What I’ve been waiting for
Cobras coil in fear
Now that we’re here
There’s power in the dark

MILLION:
It’s our time to tear down walls
It’s our time to make this reign fall
The day has come there is no other choice

We’ve found a way to create a fire
We will fight, we will inspire
We’ve found a way to discover the truth

MILLION & ENSEMBLE:
The lion’s at the door
What I’ve been waiting for
Cobras coil in fear
Now that we’re here
There’s power in the dark!

MILLION / TARIQ:
We were the dark / Lacking light
But now / We ignite
Joining forces
To bring a fight!

An idea / Now reality
A dream / A strategy
A plan comes together
A Revolution!

ALL:
The Lion’s at the door
What I’ve been waiting for
Cobras coil in fear
Now that we’re here
There’s power in the dark!
Track Name: The Electric Pharaoh
The current flows towards me
I’m a river of light
And yet the glow within me
Casts eternal night

I feel strange - I am a form
The light and I are one
A man no more - a god is born
My walls contain the sun

This brain requires everything
The city has to give
The glow of old New Memphis
Enables me to live

I know not yet my purpose
No messages to send
I only know the sequence
And I will be the end

I have no simple answers
No Volts left to extend
I only know the sequence
And I will be the end
Track Name: Children of the Light
AMUNET:
Looking up we see the breaking of night
Looking at each other bathed in sunlight

MILLION:
Clouds amidst the sky illuminate
Colors and sounds reverberate

AMUNET & MILLION:
Here we view the sky
Curious, unknowing
Rays intensify
Brilliant, glowing

Here we view the sky
curious, unknowing
Rays intensify
Brilliant, glowing

ALL:
We’re the children of the light!
