NOTES: This is SAGA's 14th studio album, released in 2001. The video for "Money Talks" was a success on Much More Music in Canada, where it was featured many times in the Top 10 video countdown. A video for "Always There" was also made for this album but it was not given any play on Much More Music for some strange reason. These 2 videos can be seen on the Silhouette DVD. This album was remastered and re-released in 2002 on the SPV Label.

1. God Knows

Tommy's on a mission
He's out to bend the rules
He's made his own decision
He's had enough of school

He wants to be an outlaw
But doesn't have a clue
Someday he'll be famous
We'll read it in the news

Chorus:

God knows where Tommy's gone
'Cause in his world it's all gone wrong
Should we speak up, or play along
When we close our eyes, it goes on and on

Tommy's getting nervous
The walls are closing in
He's so far above us
The air is getting thin

He finally made the headlines
A name without a face
His private revolution
Was lost without a trace

Repeat Chorus

2. The Runaway

Crash and burn
I know that it's not over yet
Live and learn
By living on the internet

Don't look now
I think we're on a runaway
Everybody's riding on a runaway

Smack the mouse
Someone's trying to take it all
Burn the house
I better get a fire wall

Don't look now
I think we're on a runaway
Everybody's riding on a runaway

Chorus:

If you think it's crazy
You know you're not alone

Can't you see
It doesn't matter where you are
Get it free
I do it with a CDR

Don't look now
I think we're on a runaway
Everybody's riding on a runaway

If you think it's crazy?
You know you're not alone
And don't you think it's crazy?
You know you're not alone

And you won't be riding along

XML
SRC and DVD
What the hell
It's digital insanity!

Don't look now
I think we're on a runaway
Everybody's riding on a runaway

If you think it's crazy?
You know you're not alone
And don't you think it's crazy?
You know you're not alone

And you won't be riding alone

3. Always There

I'm not sure but I've been told
The winds of change blow hot and cold
I've had my share of ups and downs
You would just send in the clowns
Hovering like a satellite
You covered me both day and night
You can see the shape I'm in
It's no wonder why I wear this grin
I'm still here because of you

You got me through it when I was spent
You were always there, you were always there
It's no mistake you were heaven sent
You were always there, you were always there

If life's a blend of light and shade
That must mean I've got it made
There's something that I can't replace
The way it feels, face to face
The memory's there, night and day
Far too strong to fade away
You were there right from the start
Found a way into my heart

I'm still here because of you

You got me through it when I was spent
You were always there, you were always there
It's no mistake you were heaven sent
You were always there, you were always there
And you will be with me till the end
You were always there, you were always there

I'm still here because of you

You got me through it when I was spent
You were always there, you were always there
It's no mistake you were heaven sent
You were always there, you were always there
Now I no this was no accident
You were always there, you were always there
And you will be with me 'till the end
You were always there, you were always there

4. Ashes to Ashes (Chapter 11)

Watching
Now I know what to do
And waiting
I will blacken the view
I'll burn the oil
Someday you'll understand

I'm watching
Watching your boats and planes
And waiting
Please don't try to explain
I know what you've got buried in the sand

First Chorus:

Ashes to ashes and dust to dust
It all comes down to who you really trust
Ashes to ashes and dust to dust
Why can't you say, you've finally had enough

Watching
We are not far away
And waiting
We can be there today
I think it's time you had a change of plan

I'm watching
If you can't stop this yourself
And wating
We will give you some help
Your story ends with no one left to tell

Ashes to Ashes

Second Chorus:

Ashes to ashes and dust to dust
It all comes down to who you really trust
Ashes to ashes and dust to dust
Now what I do, I do for all of us

Repeat First Chorus

5. Once in a Lifetime

Never thought you could fly
You've just done the impossible
Because you were willing to try
You never lost sight of the dream

They told you it couldn't be done
Said you'd need a miracle
But now look what you have become
Do you know how you've made us feel?

Chorus:

Days like these, they come along
Once in a lifetime
This was just a dream yesterday

Days like these, they come along
Once in a lifetime
Now everything is going your way

You showed us how good it can feel
When we do the impossible
All this must seem so unreal
You played the game and survived
You gave all you had to give
You were clearly unstoppable

We always knew you could win
It was only a matter of time

Repeat Chorus:

You played the game
And you played it to win
You never gave up
And you never gave in

Days like these they come along
Once in a lifetime
Now everything is going your way

Repeat Chorus

6. So Good So Far

We're on the bus, we're lost again
We shot the driver in the head
We found ourselves in old San Juan
The fire brigade had to cool them down

The key won't work, kicked down the door
Room numbers right, but it's not my floor
We're in Quebec on a bumpy road
Jake was airborne in the mobile home

Chorus:
Close your eyes and picture this
This is who we are
I sat down and made a list
So good, so far

We bought a saw at Mobile One
It's hard to check in with handcuffs on
In Caracas we came too soon
We found a mummy in our dressing room

One day we lost one hundred grand
It cost that much just to play Milan
I found my face in Bild Zeitung
It's not my car and I'm not that dumb

Repeat Chorus:

They carved a hole straight through the wall
The only way to get in the hall
An open air, the crew backed up
Never sleep under a ten ton truck

Repeat Chorus:

We stopped the bus and blocked his car
Does he still wonder where his keys are?
It's time to eat, here comes the crew
A fire extinguisher clears the room
We're on our way to the show
Do we need guns in our limo?

What goes up must come down
We needed more, so we stuck around

7. Only Human

Sometimes we come undone
We're only human
Wake up! Here comes the sun
To offer us a new beginning

Now it's time to resign and let it go
Say good-bye, you and I never had control
You're thinking that you are in control
Here it comes again
This time it may be touch and go
So let's count to ten
If we don't try, we'll never know
And I will see you tomorrow

Chorus:

Sometimes we come undone
We're only human
Wake up! Here comes the sun
To offer us a new beginning

You never know what you have until you walk away
And everything will look different in the light of day
You're thinking that you are in control
Here it comes again
This time it may be touch and go
So let's count to ten
If we don't try, we'll never know
And I will see you tomorrow

Repeat Chorus

Does it matter what happened today?
Don't look back at the past, walk away

Repeat Chorus

8. That´s How We Like It

Did somebody change the channel?
I left it on thirteen
The president will explain this all to me
I don't need a fitness trainer
To be all that I can be
This little remote is all I really need

That's how we like it!

They target a destination
We watch it disappear
Don't you think it's time we had another beer?
The lines of communication
Are always the first to go
They've done it again
The patriots stole the show

That's how we like it!

Chorus:

When we get bored
We watch a war on my TV
And I'm surrounded by my friends
And that's how we like it!
When we get bored
We watch a war on live TV
We never know how it will end
And that's how we like it!

Repeat Chorus

9. Watching The Clock

(Instrumental)

10. We´ll Meet Again (Chapter 15)

Have you been listening?
We must have more supplies
We will be on our way tonight
Don't want to miss a thing
We've got to build it right
You know we're running out of time

What I do, I do for you

Chorus:

I can't tell you how, where or when
But I can tell you we'll meet again
I can't tell you how, where or when
But we all know this won't be the end

I would do anything
To bring it back to life
You'll see a new light in the sky
If I don't do a thing
I'll always wonder why
Why I just left them there to die

All I do, I do for you

Repeat Chorus

11. Money Talks

What you want is not what you've got
You can work 'til dawn but when will it stop?
You can take time off but never get caught
It's all part of the game

One good turn deserves another
And every dog has it's day
Can we make some more time for each other
I hope we don't have to pay
There's not time, no time to recover
This is no holiday

Chorus:

Tell me anything that you want
'Cause we all know that money talks
And we will do exactly what it says

We're here today, maybe gone tomorrow
You know there's no other way
It's all part of the game
Whether we, we beg, steal or borrow
We will do it today
It's all part of the game

Repeat Chorus:

What you want is not what you've got
You can work 'til dawn but when will it stop?
You can take time off but never get caught
It's all part of the game

As you make your way to the top
Don't let life tie you in a knot
We're all the same, no, probably not
It's all part of the game

Repeat Chorus

12. House of Cards

Down, down, down, down
You know how it feels

You smoke the best cigars
And drive the fastest cars
You always get your way
Beluga caviar
You thank your lucky stars
You live in Saint Tropez
You don't make idle threats
Collecting on all your debts
You only play to win
You've got the Gucci shoes
But make too many moves
Look at the shape you're in
Like a house of cards in a hurricane, you go

Chorus:

Down, down, down, down
'Till you bottom out
Now you know how it feels
When you hit the ground
You go, down, down, down, down
'Till you bottom out
Now you know how it feels
Your house of cards is falling down

You're down with heads of state
Eat off a silver plate
But only if it shines
You've got them running scared
You strip the market bare
Then watch it take a dive
You left the girl at home
You bought the silicone
Then took her on parade
But now your life's a mess
It took the IRS
To blow it all away
Like a house of cards in a hurricane, you went

Repeat Chorus
