Weather Out The Storm I stand in the middle of a great division Ripped limb from limb by the winds of indecision Distrust, like a whirlwind swallows me Too close to tell the forest from the trees How do I fight the good fight? When I can no longer tell who is right? I must weather out the storm I've seen it all before I feel like I'm the judge in some sort of trial Time to accept it or live in denial Lines are drawn and facts are blurred with emotion Where do I choose to place my dvotion? Confusion reigns on all sides There's no where left for me to hide I must weather out the storm I've seen it all before Endured the winds through to the eye Came out clean on the other side to face the light.

The Chase 04:09
The Chase On the prowl I'm on the chase Can't say I'm a stranger to this place My gaze penetrates the gloom While I slowly scan the room All alone here with nothing to lose Biding my time sippin' on some booze In this world of my making Everything is there for the taking And I made my choice Long before I heard your voice {Chorus} Chase it down (x3) deep inside Give morality a place to hide Your reality begins to slide Trust in me you can confide The desire that you just can't deny We'll play the game and walk the line If you're a hard sell I'll work overtime You'll play you part and put up a 'fight' Until I steal a kiss at midnight You'll weken and forget the plan And we'll leave together - hand in hand {Pre-chorus} Chase it down (x2) Deep down/way down {Chorus} Chase it down (x3) deep inside Give morality a place to hide Your reality begins to slide Trust in me you can confide The desire that you just can't deny {Bridge} "I don't know what time you get off but I get off just looking at you. Just gimmie a chance and I'll rock your world Before the night is through {Solo Section} Consequence is no longer a factor The next five minutes are all that matter Morality is no longer a distraction Focused only on your satisfaction Tomorrow you may have regrets But this encounter you'll never forget {Pre-chorus} {Outro} The minute I had my way The challenge went away Your appeal was no longer real I needed you until you needed me I loved you until I had your love Good bye.

Nobody Listened A lone young man enters a scholarly institution His sanity waylaid by a fabricated delusion Embracing a myth over reality He was prepared to unleash the fatalities To awaken a world that just wouldn't listen He fell through the cracks, while they turned their backs Nobody Listened In a long ago time in a far away place One man believed in a master race An Aryan standard of supremacy Murder justified by idealistic fallacy To those who opposed - nobody listened While the free would denied millions died Nobody Listened Out of the black depths of infinity A giant piece of debris in close proximity Sighted by a solitary source An astronomer would announce its course To a world that just wouldn't listen Doubt gives way to surprise Our apathy our own demise Nobody Listened Copyright 2000 Michael Ippersiel

Broken Silence And so it starts again Begins without an end The silence is broken to the emptiness I've come to call my friend Ya I've heard this before It gets too much to endure Can't you see I will never escape What I was always meant to ignore Chorus The silence is broken to the words that scream inside my head They twist and turn my thoughts with all the things you said So now I struggle to push myself and live from day to day They say in time the pain will heal but it never fades away When the silence is broken Just be your greed self and think of nobody else There's no compromise to putting somebody's life way up on the shelf So continue your ways They'll catch up to you someday Maybe then you will see It's not what you did but what you'd say Chorus The silence is broken to the words that scream inside my head They twist and turn my thoughts with all the things you said So now I struggle to push myself and live from day to day They say in time the pain will heal but it never fades away When the silence is broken copyright 2004 Oral Hall

Lost 04:15
Lost As I look back on my life It don't take much to realize That the one that came to be Was not the one inside of me Now I look deep down inside To find the place where I would hide Can't believe it took so long To figure out that I was wrong Why was I chose to live this fight To embrace the wrong and ignore the right I'm by myself, but not alone Cuz emptiness is all I've known If I had one more chance you'd see I'd release my hold to set you free Take back the things that I have done Then you'd see I was your only one But the past remains the same...

The Battle Has Just Begun I'm the stupid fool who gets beaten down And then peels himself off the ground Battered, broken, bloody, black and blue I still rise to face you Some say that I won't ever learn Because I refuse to turn From a war that 'can't be won' The Battle has just begun I've been losing for so long now I forget how it feels to win No sense left in wondering how I'll ever begin I just keep chargin' that brick wall Until the day it will surely fall Or until my days are done The Battle has just begun Now years have passed and I still remain Drawn like a moth to the flame Stubbornly my whole existence Has been one of resistance Now my bones ache and fingers bleed Still I haven't satisfied the need For my thoughts and deeds to be one The Battle has just begun Copyright 2004 Michael Ippersiel

about

Omega A.D. Hamilton, Ontario

At the core of Omega A.D. are friendships kindled from youth, eventually spawning the power-trio of Oral (guitar/vocals), Mark (drums) and brother Mike (bass).

Two independent CDs and more than 100 shows (including opening spots for The Killer Dwarfs, Helix, Nazareth and April Wine) follow – and still they have much to prove to their harshest critics: themselves.

Currently on hiatus:
