about

Get ready to go back; back to a time when everything was perfect. The music was hot and the women were hotter. And all a guy needed was a sweet ride to get laid all summer long. Unfortunately, the best of times never seem to last.

After discovering a mysterious machine called Bahamut, a young street racer is thrown into a war for time and space as he begins to realize that the world around him is nothing more than an illusion created by a super computer.

Track Name: Mad Machine
Mad Machine
How long we've crossed the plains
through raging sandstorms delivered me

Mad Machine
I Always catch my prey
two screaming wheels are my destiny

Mad Machine
There's just no logic to
this fire that burns in my heart for you

Mad Machine
whenever I'm with you
sharing the same dream can make it true


I know what I want, what I really need
I don't want to cool down your fire.
Until all my sadness is torn all to shreds
you're all that I'm dreaming of, don't stop your love; your love

Tell me what do you want.
Tell me how do you feel.

Cold angry child
wounded and wild
Seeking the blood of our rivals

You and I ride
Raging inside
Challenging death for survival

Eyes all ablaze
hungrily gaze
Casting the blaze of burning

Heart stops in fear
nothing is clear
each time my head is turning

Tell me what do you want?
Tell me how do you feel?




Mad Machine
What will tomorrow bring?
We can't be sure about anything

Mad Machine
You give me what I need
Someone to run with who'd let me be



Everything was real, now it melts away
Playing such sad tricks on me

Never needing pity or hopeless advice
truth was the best friend I had, feeling so bad. So bad.

Tell me what do you want
tell me what do you need


Times not a friend
nearing the end
can we defend our freedom

Wounded beast screams
shattering dreams
chargin in blind confusion

Wild angry cries
Open my eyes
clearing the skies of dillusion

Each mask that falls
tears down the walls
woman that swears an illusion
Track Name: Karakuri (Mechanical Doll)
An angel out in the light
a devil all through the night
She does what she must to survive

I want to give her a chance
But she won't turn on her man
Looks like she's been throught his before

He takes her into his car
and turns her into a star
Life is always keeping her down

He lets her out of her cage
to sweat it out on the stage


I'd save her from own behavoir
If I could...
Make her feel like something real's beneath her



Don't feel cornered
Life is too short to take order
I know its not easy

I know you feel beaten, broken and defeated
You're young girl, you're no midnight runner



So I offer a ride
and I don't get denied
Maybe I could show you the town

I know you got what it takes
to get the hell out this place


Abuse is all you have to lose
take my word...
Listen to me I know you'll break free
you just try it...


Don't feel cornered
Life is too short to take orders
I know its not easy

I know you feel beaten, broken and defeated
You're young girl, you're no midnight runner
Track Name: Glitch!!!
Run away, run away!

Run away, run away!

Run away, run away!

Dancer's in the palm of your hand, can read your fortune
but they don't seem to understand, do you really love me
or is it just your program, I am having trouble telling a machine from man, now.
Track Name: Get into the Zone
BD: He has entered the forbidden territory! Shoot to destroy!

BD: The suspect has been identified as civilian Shogo Yahagi. He is currently piloting Garland unit 01. Retrieve that unit at all cost!
Track Name: Bahamut
I sat and watched them roll the dice
and now I finally paid the price
But I'm gonna see this to the end
I came for love but I'll leave with revenge

I've finally learned the truth, it seems
this world was nothing but a dream
But that isn't gonna change my plan
I'm here to fight, I'm here to take a stand


There's a fire inside me
There's a will that keeps me moving on
But they're all looking right threw me
like they never knew me
But I know I feel her

There's a feeling inside me
Its a love that keep me feeling strong
Tonight I'm breaking your hold
Tonight I'm taking control, cause
There's something real here


I don't want to have to say goodbye
But I can't sit back and wonder why
This city's gonna feel the burn
Unless I take back everything we earned

So I signed a bullet with his name
And I'm gonna finally end this game
If I don't make it please don't cry
Tonight I fight with my life on the line

There's a fire inside me
There's a will that keeps me moving on
But they're all looking right threw me
like they never knew me
But I know I feel her

There's a feeling inside me
Its a love that keep me feeling strong
Tonight I'm breaking your hold
Tonight I'm taking control, cause
There's something real here
Track Name: The Breaks
I'm at the edge of your driveway.
I wrap my hands 'round the wheel
and slam my foot on the pedal
tonight, I'm breaking out.

My tire treads on the highway
I won't look back in the mirror
tonight I'm pushing the metal
All right, I'm breaking out.

I wanna find a place where every corner isn't a trap
if you're not careful this city will tear the bones from your back
and men in suits will feed you lies like its a matter of fact

Sometimes I think I wanna take the long drive back to the start
and I already feel like someone's put a knife through my heart
cause everything we've built up is taken apart.

A fire's gonna be started
I can feel the fever inside
its burning out of control
I'm raising the stakes of this fight

We'll give them just what they wanted
and they'll hear nothing but the static
on the radio
I'm pulling the breaks out tonight

I know you took every chance you could
it's like the gods flipped a coin
or took a roll of the dice and
I try not to think about

But as I drive through our neighborhood
I just remember the boy
who taught me how to survive it
I don't want to think about it

I remember when you said the past couldn't be erased
and I could tell you meant it by the look you had on your face
but you still took your keys and high-tailed it right out of this place

I know this city's the last place you ever wanted to be
these streets are vicious its just trouble with a capital "T"
and it makes sense that if you left you would forget about me

A fire's gonna be started
I can feel the fever inside
its burning out of control
I'm raising the stakes of this fight

We'll give them just what they wanted
and they'll hear nothing but the static
on the radio
I'm pulling the breaks out tonight


A fire's gonna be started
I can feel the fever inside
its burning out of control
I'm raising the stakes of this fight

We'll give them just what they wanted
and they'll hear nothing but the static
on the radio
I'm pulling the breaks out tonight
Track Name: Touchdown into Tomorrow
Lights from the sky
strike the center of town
Descending from heaven
as they make their touchdown

Everyone watches
sound waves crack through the air
sirens and signals
Make the populace scared

Maybe.there is. nothing. nothing that can change this. Hate it. debate it. I don't have the patience. it takes to. try to. control you with words.

Find it. Amusing. the man on. the news is losing his views. Is it. because he's. disputing and polluting. the nuisance. that's growing. and coming undone.


Scattered about
Watchers stand in the square
Opened a doorway
and music flowed through the air

One stepped out shortly
With his hands to his back
he looked like a human
we hold off our attack

Question. Answers. Dancers. As they withdraw panzers. The plans were. Stupid. outrageosly fellacious. Cruelly. Unruley. and not very good.

standing. waiting. watching. the tables started turning. It's burning. Concerning. We're learning from the news man. a blues band. is loose and. they're not on our side.


Ancestors of ages
Fathers from long ago
took aim with their weapons
and said 'it's your time to go.'
