Now I've discovered something great As I've searched far and wide My sis and bro, I doubt they know But there wasn't that much to hide I'll show and tell how tall ones play And dine, and pop balloons How they take a flower, use their power Make rivers run from moons We can make our animals go wild Can you hide this magic from a child? Can you imagine? What games we'll play all night? Venture with the snake in tunnels Till you know you've done it right (it's right) A box of sand, the Candyman There can be no better I've not lived long, but I must live Till I have it in my sight I know that you're just kidding me I can't get that inside If your best friend can get so tall Then prove this filthy ride Cos it's so strange for this to be That you can swim inside of me My desire's slightly seen But it's so hard to take in Do you think this makes me want to smile? Is this what happens after you're a child? I can't imagine What games we'll play all night Venture with the snake in tunnels I'm not sure if it's right (it's right) A box of sand, the Candyman There must be something better I've not lived long, but must I live Till I have it in my sight?

Blockout 05:45
I don't want to know what somebody said Words so similar to blades Don't want to drip red, get out of my head There was no intention of hate Leave the room, say it somewhere else You might die soon, so watch your mouth Let my eyes shut, they're tired of All the sad sights to see Dreaming and wishing of one day to come All of the monsters, they will see The careless zombies that they have become Their faces, the barrel will meet Blocking it out, the words of might The thoughts that torture the mind Giving the feeling, stomach is bleeding If they deserve life, give a sign Here we go, say your goodbyes You'll realize when everyone dies Too bad it all came to this You didn't hear the lonely cries See my face, know my name Ain't much more for me to say But this is it Just go away

Losing my voice Losing my touch So much forgotten So much is lost See a silent wave And a playful reproach There is only one thing That I would like most Standing here Standing there I will never Disappear Standing here Standing there With no more to fear See if I dare The utterance of an idiot prayer Gonna look for anything Just to find that bloody tear From the sky above To the valley below Just one more shadow stalker Who reap more than they sow Standing here Standing there I will never Disappear Standing here Standing there With no more to fear

Vow 07:00
This construct of repression It pulls me down So down Spilling blood now Over floors and walls now No place to go but down Who needs reality When life can be a fantasy? Today is a little brighter than yesterday Tomorrow a little brighter still Where we are And where we're going Is where we've already been And I'd make a fragile plea For you, for me and those yet to be seen I'd get to know them real well Invite one and all for tea Smile and wave Maybe say "Hey" Realize our differences are the same In the days when reality fell Between tea and a final farewell We'd expand our minds Chase a rabbit through a tunnel And drift away, Slowly away This construct of repression It pulls me down So down Spilling blood now Over floors and walls now No place to go but down Vow here and now to... Never walk between the lines Always speak your mind And never leave the good times behind Life and death stares you in the eyes So where you're gonna go but up? For here lies truth, endless sacrifice Hope is a question mark Glowing brightly above our heads Where life takes us If only there was a way This construct of repression It pulls me down So down Spilling blood now Over floors and walls now No place to go but down This construct of repression It pulled me down So down Wiping blood now From floors and walls now We're gonna turn around Vow here and now to... Never walk between the lines Always speak your mind And never leave the good times behind Where we are, and where we're going Is where we thought we'd already been For you, for me, for the cup of tea And those not yet seen

They look good They got the walk I know I should See what we've got Let me see Let me talk Gotta reach out Unlock the lock Going in, watch me win Turn around, homeward bound Missed the boat, now I go Turn right back around They're gonna teach me How to stand They're gonna show me The master plan Get to know ya Everyday Gonna get that figure Anyway Now I know, how it goes Living life, living right In your eyes see the prize Staying in my sight The thought of sharing the same walls The dream being so near The realization afterwards The trick of facing the fear Image locked Look away Creeping back Look all day We'll come together If I can see You'll hear everything You want to hear from me You know my face You've seen me 'round You know I want to get What I've found Let me see Let me talk Gotta reach out Unlock the lock Going in, watch me win Here I am, don't give a damn Catch the boat, now we go Where ever we are found The thought of sharing the same walls The dream being so near The realization afterwards The trick of facing the fear

Magistrate 06:18
Standing on top of the world Wondering why this exists How I am, how they are Is he looking down on me? Books of rules, make no sense Questioning this authority is not an option You will pay for your sins but not as you expected The one we work to please is not up there to hear I'm falling, I'm falling down The truth is not what they claim I will not follow for the sake of culture's benefit Things will happen for they must Not to please a superior Life is governed not by conscience nor by chance It's time for us to count mistakes We’ve condemned ourselves to punishment Each wrong turn made, builds up in space Preparing for combustion, internal disaster A stolen candy (every slight crime) A mocking insult (will be paid in time) All will be paid for In a mathematically powered court Every single bad deed (two sided) And every slight crime (divided) Nothing can escape the obscure concepts of space and time Fear to lose Hope to gain Miss the days When I was sane When I was warm, but missed the cold I sold out myself and now I fold Everyone’s searching for a cure to their fear When all of the answers are hidden in a two-coloured sphere Each side holds a point of inverse tone For nothing in this world can exist on its own A stolen candy (every slight crime) A mocking insult (will be paid in time) All will be paid for In a mathematically powered court Every single bad deed And every slight crime Nothing can escape the obscure concepts of space and time I'm falling, I'm falling down. The truth is not what they claim I will not follow for the sake of culture's benefit Things will happen for they must Not to please a superior Life is governed not by conscience nor by chance

Changes will be made We'll not remain the same Never wish again Not again The finish line of fire Running oh so far Never wish again Not again We'll get there soon enough But don't think, just do Never wish again Not again Father Time is sick No more time to heal Taking action Stepping on the fear Can you believe you got yourself To reach what's over here? Dark towers stand Cast a shadow on sand Where a warrior stands With a broken sword The choice to fight Or the choice to think Left on his dying shoulders Move aching feet Or to keep a seat He knows what must be done Over the years As rocks are weathered He's conquered all his fears Putting your fingers Into your mind Never stop again Not again You climbed up a mountain A rope came up behind Never fall again Not again See the shining gold But it makes you blind Never wish again Not again Climb up the altar To claim your heavy prize You're just dreaming Now you wait for cries Find out how to go and Break the wall of lies Dark towers stand Cast a shadow on sand Where a warrior stands With a broken sword The choice to fight Or the choice to think Left on his dying shoulders Move aching feet Or to keep a seat He knows what must be done Over the years As rocks are weathered He's conquered all his fears

I have come to seek salvation I am not a masochist This is not a masquerade I have come to seek salvation From the prejudiced world in which we live These pills choking Taste bittersweet And I've only got two left What's the matter with me? Why do I hesitate? Numb the pain Open the gates of hell and push me in Why do I hesitate? Numb the pain Dripping sand in an hourglass Let memories flourish back again A skinny little brat Judged without tact Fed off misfortune And not cut any slack No wonder why he snapped Bittersweet and choking Only got two left yet I hesitate I am not a masochist This is not a masquerade I have come to seek salvation From the prejudiced world in which we live No hope in salvation No relief in pain Trust in your higher power and fall again I am not a masochist This is not a masquerade I have come to seek salvation From the prejudiced world in which we live No hope in salvation No relief in pain Trust in your higher power and fall again Dripping sand in an hourglass Let memories flourish back again I am here to stay Fall again...

about

Watch Your Step reveals the outcome of Bolus' first collaborative songwriting process, and with this new, re-recored version of the original 2005 album, listeners can enjoy a new definitive version of the band's debut. The songs contained lead an energetic and melodic musical path, with hints of various influences, from classic progressive music to current hard rock. A balance between shorter, fun songs and longer, multi-section tracks, makes for a well paced representation of Bolus' early creative style.
