About the Songs:

1. The Forgotten

There are people in this world who walk among us unseen and ignored. They have, or have had, dreams like everyone else but society has left them behind. Lost, alone and forgotten.

2. Blind Faith

This is about a different perspective of what a “God” represents. His or her followers worship, adore and follow without question; like slaves unable to think for themselves, looking to a deity for answers, guidance and to save them from whatever life brings. The answer to wars, poverty and loss. But when their God is most needed they are not there, we are alone.

3. Save Me

Taken from the perspective of someone who cannot move on from losing someone they love or cannot be with. Over time they have become trapped between the love which they feel, and the emotional turmoil of the loss and or helplessness they feel.

4. Soul Diseased

A person who is lost, who no longer knows who they are, why they are here and has given up hope. They cannot handle or deal with what life has thrown at them and all they want to do is to escape it all.

5. The End of Everything

Dreams and hopes for the future are fading away due to doubts, fears and hesitation. The longer things are left without taking action, the more likely that the chance of happiness can be lost.


Lyrics :

The Forgotten : © Hybrid Spirits 2021

Verse 1

They walk among us in the shadows

In the corners of the world no-one goes

They fall among us forgotten souls

Left to wander empty halls

Chorus

They are the tainted, the loveless, the forgotten

They are the restless unwanted bleeding souls

Verse 2

They walk among us in the shadows

In the ruins of the past where no one goes

They crawl among us in the wasteland

Of their broken dreams; no one knows

(Repeat Chorus)

Verse 1

Pray to me I am your God, I deserve your admiration

Bow down before me, die for me – be my willing sacrifice

Build your temples, worship me, a slave to do my bidding

Chorus

I am your faith, I am your love when you have none

I am your pain, your only hope for salvation

Verse 2

Pray to me I am your God, I am your desperation

Bow down before me, die for me, I own you body and soul

And in your deepest time of need, your world’s falling apart

I will abandon you

(Repeat Chorus)

Save Me ©Hybrid Spirits 2021

Verse 1

I lie awake at night, I see your face, hear your voice, you’re calling me

You’re in my thoughts, my dreams, every waking hour, each time I sleep you call to me

Chorus

You are my flesh, my soul, my fantasy

You are my pain, my fear, my anger

You are my faith, my love, my destiny

You are my hate, my tears, my anchor

Verse 2

I can’t escape the pain inside, it takes control, it’s all around

It’s all I feel, I can’t forget, I can’t resist, you’re in my soul

In my blood, calling me home

Calling me home

(Repeat Chorus)

Middle 8

Ooooh save me!

(You can’t escape the pain inside, it takes control it’s all around you, It’s how you feel)

Ooooh save me!

(Repeat Chorus)

Soul Diseased ©Hybrid Spirits 2021

Verse 1

I don’t know what’s going on, I don’t know where to begin

I feel like screaming ‘til I run out of breath

I want to hide from the world, I want to disappear

I want to run and leave it all behind

Something’s dying inside, I think my soul is diseased

There’s nothing left of me now

Chorus 1

I need a reason to still fight, I need a reason to still breathe

I need a reason to carry on, and find it in me to dream

I need a reason to still hope, a reason to believe

A reason for me to see the light of day, give me a reason to live

Verse 2

I don’t know what’s going on, I don’t know where to begin

I feel like just giving in, I want to hide from the world

I want to disappear, I want to be someone else

Something’s dying inside, I think my soul is diseased

There’s nothing left that is me

Chorus 2

I need a reason to still fight, I need a reason to still breathe

I need a reason to carry on, and find it in me to dream

Are you the reason I still cry, are you the reason I still hurt

I need a reason for this pain I’m in, why I’ll never be free

The End of Everything ©Hybrid Spirits 2021

Verse 1

You tore away all hope, laid waste to our dreams

To make right what was wrong, restore our faith in destiny

Bridge

Oooh! I watch it all turning to dust

Chorus

This could be the end of everything, of you and I

This could be the end of everything, end of the line

This could be the end of everything, of days gone by

This could be the end of everything!

Verse 2

A light to guide you home, a way out of the dark

You hesitate too long, and now your chance has passed

Bridge

Oooh!

I watch it all turn to dust

Chorus 1

This could be the end of everything, of you and I

This could be the end of everything, end of the line

This could be the end of everything, of days gone by

This could be the end of everything

Chorus 2

This will be the end of everything, of you and I

This will be the end of everything, end of the line

This will be the end of everything, of days gone by

This will be the end of everything!
