Morpheus Rising is one our newest bands and is heavily influenced by bands such as Thin Lizzy, Iron Maiden and Alter Bridge, Morpheus Rising produce an energetic show which will keep the old guard happy and show the new generation how it’s done. Central to the band is the classic twin guitar partnership coupled with dynamic and melodic songwriting, from the balls out NWOBHM rock of Lord of the North to the lighter, more radio friendly Those Who Watch.

Track Name: Daylight
When we caught the train, not a soul was wiring there
When we boarded the train, only silence on the air
We are the hurt, the lost, the forgotten ones
Still, we remain, waiting for the day to break

The book of truth, has washed up on the shore
And we can't find the page, cause we don't know what we're looking for
So many shadows, where people used to be
Can you see the daylight? Are we finally free?

We travel carefully, among the fallen souls
No time for saying prayers, no time for digging holes
We hide away at night - breathing in the dark
Monsters in our dreams, and monsters in the park

Daylight - when do you think we will finally be free
Daylight - open the casket and see to believe
Alright - these are the rules that we play by today
Daylight - do you believe you are free

If you think you've lost your patience
Take a look at these creations
Inside-out, upside-down, this world is lost
You won't be found

Oh, where's your courage? Where's your fight?
One more relic, one more night

This battleground, which used to be our home
Will be our tomb, in which we all will roam,
Unless we get out now - face the dark and run
They'll take us one by one, before the day is done

Inside-out, upside-down, this world is lost
You won't be found
Track Name: Lord Of The North
Born of these Northern lands,
Tracing the line back to the time
When the Gods of old still roamed
They've come here before
They'll come here again
With an iron hand

Destined to rule these lands
The blood in my veins is the blood of kings
I've come here before, I'll come here again
With an iron hand

Out of the mist they came,
Sailing across the sea from the land
Where the Gods of old still roamed
They've come here before
They'll come here again
With an iron hand

Leaving the land in flames
Riding across the plains
To the place that I call home
They've come here before
They'll come here again
With an iron hand

I am a Lord of the North
I am a Lord of the North

This land will always belong to me
This land will always be free
Always be free

This land will always belong to me
This land will always be free

I am a Lord of the North
I am a Lord of the North
Track Name: Let The Sleeper Awake
I am the sleeper, and I wait in silence
Claw down much deeper, and you'll find some violence
It lives in my mind, and in the walls of this cell
They tell me to jump, I say how high?
They bring the day, then close down the night

Waiting for something, or someone to give me a sign
Hiding in shadows, waiting in line

Well you keep me in the dark
With a blade against my heart
But the minute you turn your back
I'll tear your world apart

Let the sleeper awake
Let the sleeper awake

I'm in the distance, I hear your lies
A sleeper awakening, with one eye on the prize

Let the sleeper awake
Look for the sign
Let the sleeper awake
Run for your life
Let the sleeper awake
Don't turn your back
Let the sleeper awake
Don't close your eyes
Let the sleeper awake

Look for the sign
Run for your life
Don't turn your back
Don't close your eyes

Let the sleeper awake
Let the sleeper awake
Track Name: Fear Of Nothing
Over again, when will this end
They're there in my mind, they're right behind me
Something is stirring way down inside
The memories waking taking hold of your mind
Nothing has changed yet nothing's the same
It's all gone to hell but it all seems so sane
The light's going down, the shadows are long
There isn't a sound yet it's screaming your names

Close all the doors, turn on the lights
Don't open your eyes it can see in the night
The nightmares begun, you can't go on
You feel all alone when you're out of the Sun
A darkness so old, a terrible cold
Twisting and turning and tearing your soul
Rattle around, you're trapped in a cage
Can't feel the ground, it's a dreamer's rage

Out of your head, inside your mind
You can't control the fear of nothing
Fear of nothing

Over again, when will this end
They're there in my mind, they're right behind me
Something is stirring way down inside
The memories waking taking hold of your mind
Nothing has changed yet nothing's the same
It's all gone to hell but it all seems so sane
The light's going down, the shadows are long
There isn't a sound yet it's screaming your names

Out of your head, inside your mind
You can't control the fear of nothing
Out of your mind, inside your head
You can't control the fear of nothing
Fear of nothing
Track Name: Shades Of Grey
It's quiet here, like living inside a picture frame
Where the colours never fade
I can do it here, live life any way I choose to
and the colours never fade
Pick your vice, been there before
Name your price, I don't keep score
There is no shame, I feel no pain
No black or white, just shades of grey
shades of grey

How was I to know what would happen to the man I used to be
as the colurs start to fade
They can see it now as I start to reap the pain I sow
when the colours start to fade
I picked my vice, you've been there before
I named my price, you kept the score
I hide in shame, I feel your pain
No black or white, just shades of grey

What you see is who I am
What I see is what I want
Who he is will set me free
What I see is what I want to be


What you see is who I am
What I see is what I want
Who he is will set me free
What I see is what I want to be

I see it now, what I have to do to make amends
as the colours start to fade
I must do it now or face the wrath of those I've wronged
as the colours are ablaze
No matter the vice, what was it for
Despite the price, you wiped the score
There is no shame, I feel no pain
No black or white, just shades of grey
Shades of grey
Track Name: Those Who Watch
We know the glow of burning cities
And we know the ravages of war
When trouble comes and tears your world to pieces
You'll turn to us just like you did before

Through sands of time we see your world
We are those who watch
Through space we see your days decay
We are those who watch

We know that when our help is needed
You'll turn to us just like you did before

Through sands of time we see your world
We are those who watch
Through space we see your days decay
We are those who watch

We watched when Earth was just a wisp of gas
We watch it now
Seeing slow clouds pass you by
We're watching now
From maze to maze of clustered life
Patterns on the ice

We will guide you home

Through sands of time we see your world
We are those who watch
Through space we see your days decay
We are those who watch
Track Name: Fighting Man
Embracing the dark of night
Ignoring the cold
Standing out there, on the edge of life
Keeping watch over this world

In the darkness above the city lights
Defending its soul
The time has come now to fight for what is right
Guarding this land, it's time to take a stand

You're a fightting man
Make a difference, take a stand
'Cause you're a fighting man

Descending to shadowlands
Where you stand alone to face your foe
Facing up to the fears that you hold
Way down deep in your soul

They'll never see that this fight sets you free
Won't understand what it takes to be a man
As you struggle to reconcile just who you are
With what you believe, the cause you hold in your hand
It's time to take a stand

You're a fightting man
Make a difference, take a stand
'Cause you're a fighting man
You're a fighting man
Make that difference, take that stand
'Cause you're a fighting man

It's that time of the night
You've got to show them you'll stay where you are
You've got to take that stand
It's time to bring on the fight
To stand up for whaat you believe to be true
It's time to take that stand
Track Name: Gypsy King
Seems like years have passed in the last few days
Since the Gypsy Queen chose a man for her strays
He stole her heart and she gave him a crown
But when he tried to fly she just tied him down

He's the man behind the woman, he's the Gypsy King
Should be thinking of escaping, taking off that ring
He's the Gypsy King

It's high time now for him there's only one way out
If he tried to talk about it she'd only scream and shout

He's the man behind the woman, he's the Gypsy King
Should be thinking of escaping, taking off that ring
If he'd seen the writing on the wall, he's be long gone now
Should be thinking of escaping, taking off that ring

He's the gypsy king

He's the man behind the woman, he's the Gypsy King
Should be thinking of escaping, taking off that ring
If he'd seen the writing on the wall, he's be long gone now
Should be thinking of escaping, taking off that ring

It seems like years have passed in the last few days
Since the Gypsy Queen chose me to lead her strays
I see clearly now as down starts to glow
The time has come when I must go
Track Name: In The End
I started this fight 'cause it seemed like the right thing to do
I just don't know what they expect someone like me to do
I struggle against all these demons that I see all day
The reason has gone but the fight carries on
In the darkest depths of my soul

How will I
How will I know what to do
In the end

I'm running blind as I search for the man I can be
Blood on my hands and I don't understand why I'm free
Look in the mirror, I don't recognise who I am
Can I be evil or can there be some kind of secretive master plan

How will I
How will I know what to do
How will I
How will I know what to do, in the end

I started this fight 'cause it seemed like the right thing to do
I just don't know what they expect someone like me to do
I struggle against all these demons that I see all day
The reason has gone but the fight carries on
In the darkest depths of my soul


How will I
How will I know what to do
How will I
How will I know what to do, in the end
Track Name: Quench Your Thirst
You watch them crawl
You see them all
Their time will come
At the falling of the sun
When darkness falls
These Godless souls
You won't deny
When the mayhem has begun
You realise
You share those eyes
This burning need
This deadly greed
You fight the urge
To start the scourge
The feelings swell
Unleash hell

Take them down, every one
Quench your thirst for Adam's son
Make that kill, don't think twice
It's time to pay the price

Quench your thirst

The fear sets in as reality bites
It's too late now, you own the night
They start to run, but none to soon
They won't get far beneath this blood red moon

Take them down, every one
Quench your thirst for Adam's son
Make that kill, don't think twice
It's time


Quench your thirst
