     No life till leather
     We are gonna kick some ass tonight
     We got the metal madness
     When our fans start screaming
     It's right well alright
     When we start to rock
     We never want to stop again
     Hit the lights
     Hit the lights
     Hit the lights
     You know our fans are insane
     We are gonna blow this place away
     with volume higher
     Than anything today the only way
     When we start to rock
     We never want to stop again
     Hit the lights
     Hit the lights
     Hit the lights
     With all our screaming
     We are gonna rip right through your brain
     We got the lethal power
     It is causing you sweet pain Oh sweet pain
     When we start to rock
     We never want to stop again
     Hit the lights
     Hit the lights
     Hit the lights



     By the last breath of the fourth winds blow
     Better raise your ears
     The sound of hooves knocks at your door
     Lock up your wife and children now
     It's time to wield the blade
     For now you have got some company
     The Horsemen are drawing nearer
     On the leather steeds they ride
     They have come to take your life
     On through the dead of night
     With the four Horsemen ride
     or choose your fate and die
     You have been dying since the day
     You were born
     You know it has all been planned
     The quartet of deliverance rides
     A sinner once a sinner twice
     No need for confession now
     Cause now you have got the fight of your life
     The Horsemen are drawing nearer
     On the leather steeds they ride
     They have come to take your life
     On through the dead of night
     With the four Horsemen ride
     or choose your fate and die
     Time
     has taken its toll on you
     The lines that crack your face
     Famine
     Your body it has torn through
     Withered in every place
     Pestilence
     For what you have had to endure
     And what you have put others through
     Death
     Deliverance for you for sure
     There is nothing you can do
     So gather round young warriors now
     and saddle up your steeds
     Killing scores with demon swords
     Now is the death of doers of wrong
     Swing the judgment hammer down
     Safely inside armor blood guts and sweat
     The Horsemen are drawing nearer
     On the leather steeds they ride
     They have come to take your life
     On through the dead of night
     With the four Horsemen ride
     or choose your fate and die



     Living and dying laughing and crying
     Once you have seen it you will never be the same
     Life in the fast lane is just how it seems
     Hard and it is heavy dirty and mean
     Motorbreath
     Its how I live my life
     I can't take it any other way
     Motorbreath
     The sign of living fast
     It is going to take
     Your breath away
     Don't stop for nothing its full speed or nothing
     I am taking down you know whatever is in my way
     Getting your kicks as you are shooting the line
     Sending the shivers up and down your spine
     Motorbreath
     Its how I live my life
     I can't take it any other way
     Motorbreath
     The sign of living fast
     It is going to take
     Your breath away
     Those people who tell you not to take chances
     They are all missing on what life is about
     You only live once so take hold of the chance
     Don't end up like others the same song and dance
     Motorbreath
     Its how I live my life
     I can't take it any other way
     Motorbreath
     The sign of living fast
     It is going to take
     Your breath away



     Down in the depths of my fiery home
     The summons bell will chime
     Tempting you and all the earth
     to join our sinful kind
     There is a job to be done and I'm the one
     You people make me do it
     Now it is time for your fate and I won't hesitate
     to pull you down into this pit
     So come on
     Jump in the Fire
     So come on
     Jump in the Fire
     With hell in my eyes and with death in my veins
     The end is closing in
     Feeding on the minds of man
     and from their souls within
     My disciples all shout to search out
     And they always shall obey

     Follow me now my child not the meek or the mild
     But do just as I say
     So come on
     Jump in the Fire
     So come on
     Jump in the Fire
     Jump by your will or be taken by force
     I'll get you either way
     Trying to keep the hellfire lit
     I am stalking you as prey
     Living your life as me I am you you see
     So reach down grab my hand walk with me through the land
     Come home where you belong
     So come on
     Jump in the Fire
     So come on
     Jump in the Fire

      Sound is ripping through your ears
     The deafening sound of metal nears
     Your bodies waiting for his whips
     The taste of leather on your lips
     Hear the cry of War
     Louder than before
     With his sword in hand
     to control the land
     Crushing metal strikes
     on this frightening night
     Fall onto your knees
     For the Phantom Lord
     Victims falling under chains
     You hear them crying death pains
     The fists of terrors breaking through
     Now there's nothing you can do
     Hear the cry of War
     Louder than before
     With his sword in ha o
     to control the land
     Crushing metal strikes
     on this frightening night
     Fall onto your knees
     For the Phantom Lord
     The leather armies have prevailed
     The Phantom Lord has never failed
     Smoke is lifting from the ground
     The rising volume metal sound
     Hear the cry of War
     Louder than before
     With his sword in hand
     to control the land
     Crushing metal strikes
     on this frightening night
     Fall onto your knees
     For the Phantom Lord
     Fall to your knees
     and bow to the Phantom Lord




     No mercy for what we are doing
     No thought to even what we have done
     We don't need to feel the sorrow
     No remorse for the helpless one
     War without end

     We don't care what it meant
     Another day Another death
     Another sorrow Another breath
     No remorse No repent
     We don't care what it meant
     Another day Another death
     Another sorrow Another breath
     Blood feeds the war machine
     as it eats its way across the land
     We don't need the feel the sorrow
     No remorse is the one command
     War without end
     No remorse No repent
     We don't care what it meant
     Another day Another death
     Another sorrow Another breath
     No remorse No repent
     We don't care what it meant
     Another day Another death
     Another sorrow Another breath
     Only the strong survive
     No one to save the weaker race

     Like a loaded gun right at your face
     War without end
     No remorse No repent
     We don't care what it meant
     Another day Another death

     Bullets are flying
     People are dying
     with madness surrounding all hell's breaking loose
     Soldiers are hounding
     Bodies are mounting
     cannons are shouting to take their abuse
     With war machines going
     Blood starts to flowing
     No mercy given to anyone hear
     The furious fighting
     Swords are like lighting
     It all becomes frightening to you
     Know death is near
     No remorse



     We are scanning the scene in the city tonight
     We are looking for you to start up a fight
     There is an evil feeling in our brains
     But it is nothing new you know it drives us insane
     Running, On our way
     Hiding, You will pay
     Dying, One thousand deaths
     Running, On our way

     Running, On our way

     Dying, One thousand deaths

     Thunder and lightning the gods take revenge
     Senseless destruction
     Victims of fury are cowardly now
     Running for safety
     Stabbing the harlot to pay for her sins
     Leaving the virgin
     Suicide running as if it were free
     Ripping and tearing
     On through the mist and the madness
     We are trying to get the message to you
     Metal Militia
     Metal Militia
     Metal Militia
     Chained and shadowed to be left behind
     nine and one thousand
     Metal militia for your sacrifice
     iron clad soldiers
     Join or be conquered the law of the land
     What will befall you
     The metallization of your inner soul
     twisting and turning
     On through the mist and the madness
     We are trying to get the message to you
     Metal Militia
     Metal Militia

     protecting what we are
     Joining together to take on the world
     with our heavy metal
     Spreading the message to everyone here
     Come let yourself go
     On through the mist and the madness
     We are trying to get the message to you
     Metal Militia
     Metal Militia
     Metal Militia












































     Do unto others as they have done unto you
     But what in the hell is this world coming to?
     Blow the universe into nothingness
     Nuclear warfare shall lay us to rest
     Fight fire with fire
     Ending is near
     Fight fire with fire
     Bursting with fear
     We shall die
     Time is like a fuse, short and burning fast
     Armageddon is here, like said in the past
     Fight fire with fire
     Ending is near
     Fight fire with fire
     Bursting with fear
     Soon to fill our lungs the hot winds of death
     The gods are laughing, so take your last breath
     Fight fire with fire
     Ending is near
     Fight fire with fire
     Bursting with fear



     Guilty as charged
     But damn it, it ain't right
     There is someone else controlling me
     Death in the air
     Strapped in the electric chair
     This can't be happening to me
     Who made you God to say
     "I'll take your life from you!"
     Flash before my eyes
     Now it's time to die
     Burning in my brain
     I can feel the flames
     Wait for the sign
     To flick the switch of death
     It's the beginning of the end
     Sweat, chilling cold
     As I watch death unfold
     Consciousness my only friend
     My fingers grip with fear
     What I am doing here?
     Flash before my eyes
     Now it's time to die
     Burning in my brain
     I can feel the flames
     Someone help me
     Oh please God help me
     They are trying to take it all away
     I don't want to die
     Time moving slowly
     The minutes seem like hours
     The final curtain call I see
     How true is this?
     Just get it over with
     If this is true, just let it be
     Wakened by the horrid cream
     Freed from the frightening dream
     Flash before my eyes
     Now it's time to die
     Burning in my brain
     I can feel the flames




     Make his fight on the hill in the early day
     Constant chill deep inside
     Shouting gun, on they run through the endless grey
     On the fight, for they are right, yes, by who's to say?
     For a hill men would kill, why? They do not know
     Suffered wounds test there their pride
     Men of five, still alive through the raging glow
     Gone insane from the pain that they surely know
     For whom the bell tolls
     Time marches on
     For whom the bell tolls
     Take a look to the sky just before you die
     It is the last time you will
     Blackened roar massive roar fills the crumbling sky
     Shattered goal fills his soul with a ruthless cry
     Stranger now, are his eyes, to this mystery
     He hears the silence so loud
     Crack of dawn, all is gone except the will to be
     Now the will see what will be, blinded eyes to see
     For whom the bell tolls
     Time marches on
     For whom the bell tolls



     Life it seems, will fade away
     Drifting further every day
     Getting lost within myself
     Nothing matters no one else
     I have lost the will to live
     Simply nothing more to give
     There is nothing more for me
     Need the end to set me free
     Things are not what they used to be
     Missing one inside of me
     Deathly lost, this can't be real
     Cannot stand this hell I feel
     Emptiness is filing me
     To the point of agony
     Growing darkness taking dawn
     I was me, but now He's gone
     No one but me can save myself, but it to late
     Now I can't think, think why I should even try
     Yesterday seems as though it never existed
     Death Greets me warm, now I will just say good-bye



     I don't know how to live trough this hell
     Woken up, I'm still locked in this shell
     Frozen soul, frozen down to the core
     Break the ice, I can't take anymore
     Freezing
     Can't move at all
     Screaming
     Can't hear my call
     I am dying to live
     Cry out
     I'm trapped under the ice
     Crystallized, as I lay here and rest
     Eyes of glass stare directly at death
     From deep sleep I have broken away
     No one knows, no one hears what I say
     Freezing
     Can't move at all
     Screaming
     Can't hear my call
     I am dying to live
     Cry out
     I'm trapped under the ice
     Scream from my soul
     Fate, mystified
     Hell, forever more
     No release from my cryonic state
     What is this? I've been stricken by fate
     Wrapped up tight, cannot move, can't break free
     Hand of doom has a tight grip on me
     Freezing
     Can't move at all
     Screaming
     Can't hear my call
     I am dying to live
     Cry out
     I'm trapped under the ice



     Fell no pain, but my life ain't easy
     I know I'm my best friend
     No one cares, but I'm so much stronger
     I'll fight until the end
     To escape from the true false world
     Undamaged destiny
     Can't get caught in the endless circle
     Ring of stupidity
     Out of my own, out to be free
     One with my mind, they just can't see
     No need to hear things that they say
     Life is for my own to live my own way
     Rape my mind and destroy my feelings
     Don't tell my what to do
     I don't care now, 'cause I'm on my side
     And I can see through you
     Feed my brain with your so called standards
     Who says that I ain't right
     Break away from your common fashion
     See through your blurry sight
     Out of my own, out to be free
     One with my mind, they just can't see
     No need to hear things that they say
     Life is for my own to live my own way
     See they try to bring the hammer down
     No damn chains can hold me to the ground
     Life is for my own to live my own way



     Slaves
     Hebrews born to serve, to the pharaoh
     Heed
     To his every word, live in fear
     Faith
     Of the unknown one, the deliverer
     Wait
     Something must be done, four hundred years
     So let it be written
     So let it be done
     I'm sent here by the chosen one
     So let it be written
     So let it be done
     To kill the first born pharaoh son
     I'm creeping death
     Now
     Let my people go, land of goshen
     Go
     I will be with thee, bush of fire
     Blood
     Running red and strong, down the nil
     Plague
     Darkness three days long, hail to fire
     So let it be written
     So let it be done
     I'm sent here by the chosen one
     So let it be written
     So let it be done
     To kill the first born pharaoh son
     I'm creeping death
     Die by my hand
     I creep across the land
     Killing first born man
     Die by my hand
     I creep across the land
     Killing first born man
     I
     Rule the midnight air the destroyer
     Born
     I shall soon be there, deadly mass
     I
     Creep the steps and flood final darkness
     Blood
     Lambs blood painted door, I shall pass
     So let it be written
     So let it be done
     I'm sent here by the chosen one
     So let it be written
     So let it be done
     To kill the first born pharaoh son
     I'm creeping death

     Battery

     Lashing out the action, returning the reaction
     Weak are ripped and torn away
     Hypnotizing power, crushing all that cower
     Battery is here to stay
     Smashing through the boundaries
     lunacy has found me
     cannot stop the Battery
     Pounding out aggression
     turns into obsession
     cannot kill the Battery
     Cannot kill the family
     Battery is found in me
     Battery
     Crushing all deceivers, mashing non-believers
     Never ending potency
     Hungry violence seeker, feeding off the weaker
     Breeding on insanity
     Smashing through the boundaries
     lunacy has found me
     cannot stop the Battery
     Pounding out aggression
     turns into obsession
     cannot kill the Battery
     Cannot kill the family
     Battery is found in me
     Battery
     Circle of Destruction, Hammer comes crushing
     Powerhouse of energy
     Whipping up a fury, Dominating flurry
     We create the Battery
     Smashing through the boundaries
     lunacy has found me
     cannot stop the Battery
     Pounding out aggression
     turns into obsession
     cannot kill the Battery
     Cannot kill the family
     Battery is found in me

     End of passion play, crumbling away
     I'm your source of self-destruction

     Leading on your deaths construction

     Master
     Master
     Just call my name, `cause I'll hear you scream
     Master

     Welcome to where time stands still
     no one leaves and no one will
     Moon is full, never seems to change
     just labeled mentally deranged
     Dream the same thing every night
     I see our freedom in my sight
     No locked doors, No windows barred
     No things to make my brain seem scarred
     Sleep my friend and you will see
     that dream is my reality
     They keep me locked up in this cage
     can't they see it's why my brain says Rage
     Sanitarium, leave me be
     Sanitarium, just leave me alone
     Build my fear of what's out there
     and cannot breathe the open air
     Whisper things into my brain
     assuring me that I'm insane
     They think our heads are in their hands
     but violent use brings violent plans
     Keep him tied, it makes him well
     he's getting better, can't you tell?
     No more can they keep us in
     Listen, damn it, we will win
     They see it right, they see it well
     but they think this saves us from our Hell
     Sanitarium, leave me be
     Sanitarium, just leave me alone
     Sanitarium, just leave me alone
     Fear of living on
     natives getting restless now
     Mutiny in the air
     got some death to do
     Mirror stares back hard
     Kill, it's such a friendly word
     seems the only way
     for reaching out again.



     Bodies fill the fields I see, hungry heroes end
     No one to play soldier now, no one to pretend
     running blind through killing fields, bred to kill them all
     Victim of what said should be
     a servant `til I fall
     Soldier boy, made of clay
     now an empty shell
     twenty one, only son
     but he served us well
     Bred to kill, not to care
     just do as we say
     finished here, Greeting Death
     he's yours to take away
     Back to the front
     you will do what I say, when I say
     Back to the front
     you will die when I say, you must die
     Back to the front
     you coward
     you servant
     you blindman
     Barking of machinegun fire, does nothing to me now
     sounding of the clock that ticks, get used to it somehow
     More a man, more stripes you bare, glory seeker trends
     bodies fill the fields I see
     the slaughter never ends
     Soldier boy, made of clay
     now an empty shell
     twenty one, only son
     but he served us well
     Bred to kill, not to care
     just do as we say
     finished here, Greeting Death
     he's yours to take away
     Back to the front
     you will do what I say, when I say
     Back to the front
     you will die when I say, you must die
     Back to the front
     you coward
     you servant
     you blindman
     Why, Am I dying?
     Kill, have no fear
     Lie, live off lying
     Hell, Hell is here
     I was born for dying
     Life planned out before my birth, nothing could I say
     had no chance to see myself, molded day by day
     Looking back I realize, nothing have I done
     left to die with only friend
     Alone I clench my gun
     Soldier boy, made of clay
     now an empty shell
     twenty one, only son
     but he served us well
     Bred to kill, not to care
     just do as we say
     finished here, Greeting Death
     he's yours to take away
     Back to the front
     you will do what I say, when I say
     Back to the front
     you will die when I say, you must die
     Back to the front
     you coward
     you servant
     you blindman
     Back to the front.



     Spineless from the start, sucked into the part
     circus comes to town, you play the lead clown
     Please, please
     spreading his disease, living by his story
     Knees, knees
     falling to your knees, suffer for his glory
     You will
     Time for lust, time for lie
     time to kiss your life goodbye
     Send me money, send me green
     Heaven you will meet
     Make a contribution
     and you'll get a better seat
     Bow to Leper Messiah
     Marvel at his tricks, need your Sunday fix
     blind devotion came, rotting your brain
     Chain, chain
     Join the endless chain
     Fame, Fame
     Infection is the game, stinking drunk with power
     We see
     Time for lust, time for lie
     time to kiss your life goodbye
     Send me money, send me green
     Heaven you will meet
     Make a contribution
     and you'll get a better seat
     Bow to Leper Messiah
     Witchery, weakening
     Sees the sheep are gathering
     set the trap, hypnotize
     now you follow
     Time for lust, time for lie
     time to kiss your life goodbye
     Send me money, send me green
     Heaven you will meet
     Make a contribution
     and you'll get a better seat
     Lie.



     (Instrumental)



     Dealing out the agony within
     charging hard and no one's gonna give in
     Living on your knees, conformity
     or dying on your feet for honesty
     Inbred, our bodies work as one
     bloody, but never cry submission
     Following our instinct not a trend
     go against the grain until the end
     Blood will follow blood
     Dying time is here
     Damage Incorporated
     Slamming through, don't fuck with razorback
     stepping out? You'll feel our hell on your back
     Blood follows blood and we make sure
     life ain't for you and we're the cure
     Honesty is my only excuse
     Try to rob us of it, but it's no use
     Steamroller action crushing all
     Victim is your name and you shall fall
     Blood will follow blood
     Dying time is here
     Damage Incorporated
     We chew and spit you out
     we laugh, you scream and shout
     All flee, with fear you run
     You'll know just where we come from
     Damage Incorporated
     Damage jackals ripping right through you
     sight and smell of this, it gets me goin'
     Know just how to get just what we want
     tear it from your soul in nightly hunt
     Fuck it all and fucking no regrets
     Never happy ending on these dark sets
     All's fair for Damage Inc. you see
     step a little closer if you please
     Blood will follow blood
     Dying time is here
     Damage Incorporated


         * GARAGE DAYS (1987)
     Helpless

     I gotta see you moving fast
     See you come my way
     See the dreams, I hope they last
     Never fade away.
     Gotta see the lights above
     Make it loud tonight
     Gotta set it all a-fire
     Set it all a-light
     See the flashing lights
     Hear the thunder roar
     I am gonna set you all a-light
     Gotta make it man
     I ain't got a choice
     Gotta fill this hall tonight
     Helpless
     Helpless
     Helpless
     Helpless
     I don't what I'm gonna do
     Maybe not tonight
     Gotta set you all a-fire
     Gotta treat you right.
     I can see the flashing lights
     Lit before your love, oh
     Gotta hear the thunder roar
     Coming from above.
     See the flashing lights
     Hear the thunder roar
     I'm gonna set you all alight
     Gotta make it man
     I ain't got no choice
     Gotta fill this hall tonight
     Helpless
     Helpless
     Helpless
     Helpless
     I can see the stars
     I can see what's going on
     Every night alone
     I sing my song just for fun.
     Only time will tell
     If I'll make it myself someday
     This stage is mine
     Music is my destiny.
     Cannot squeeze the life from me!
     I can see the lights
     But I can see what's going on
     Every night alone
     I sing my song just for fun.
     Business in collapse
     Some men don't like it so
     Helpless maybe babe,
     But you can leave or join the show.
     Cannot squeeze the life from me!



     Look out at the darkness,
     And you will see,
     Just call my name and I'll be there.
     You cannot touch me,
     You would not dare,
     I am the chill that's in the air.
     And I try to get through to you,
     In my own special way,
     As the barriers crumble,
     At the end of the day.
     Dark rivers are flowing,
     Back into the past,
     You are the fish for which I cast.
     And what of the future,
     What is to be,
     As the rivers flow into the sea.
     And I try to get through to you,
     In my own special way,
     As the barriers crumble,
     At the end of the day.
     Do not take for granted,
     Powers out there,
     Don't step into the demon's lair.
     Time is an illusion,
     Rising from time,
     Steep is the mountain which we climb.



     Motives changing
     Day to day
     The fire increases
     Masks decay
     I look at the river
     White foam floats down
     The body's poisoned
     Got to sit tight
     The wait
     The wait
     The wait
     The wait
     After awakening
     The silence grows
     The screams subside
     Distortion shows
     Mutant thoughts
     Of bad mouthed news
     Just another birth
     Of distorted views
     The wait
     The wait
     The wait
     The wait



     Look inside and you will see
     The words are cutting deep inside my brain
     Thunder burnin' quickly burning
     Knife of words is driving me insane, insane yeah
     Raven black is on my track
     He shows me how to neutralize the knife
     Show to me in surgery
     The art of fighting words to conquer life, conquer life yeah
     Now the wicked lance of fear
     Is driven from my heady mountain brain
     Crash course in brain surgery
     Has stopped the bloody knife of words
     again yeah, yeah, yeah

     And it doesn't matter much to me
     As long as it's dead

     Blackened

     Blackened is the end
     Winter it will send
     Throwing all you see
     Into obscurity
     Death of Mother Earth
     Never a rebirth
     Evolution's End
     Never will it mend
     Never
     Fire
     To begin whipping dance of the dead
     Blackened is the end
     To begin whipping dance of the dead
     Color our world blackened
     Blistering of Earth
     Terminate its worth
     Deadly nicotine
     Kill what might have been
     Callous frigid chill
     Nothing left to kill
     Never seen before
     Breathing nevermore
     Never
     Fire
     To begin whipping dance of the dead
     Blackened is the end
     To begin whipping dance of the dead
     Color our world blackened
     Blackened
     Opposition...Contradiction...Premonition...Compromise
     Agitation...Violation......Mutilation...Planet Dies
     Darkest color
     Blistered Earth
     True death of life
     Termination...Expiration...Cancellation...Human Race
     Expectation...Liberation...Population...Lay to waste
     See our mother
     Put to death
     See our mother die
     Smoldering decay
     Take her breath away
     Millions of our years
     In minutes disappears
     Darkening in vain
     Decadence remains
     All is said and done
     Never is the sun
     Never
     Fire
     To begin whipping dance of the dead
     Blackened is the end
     To begin whipping dance of the dead
     Fire
     Is the outcome of hypocrisy
     Darkest potency
     In the exit of humanity
     Color our world blackened
     Blackened
     .


     Halls of justice painted green
     Money talking
     Power wolves beset your door
     Hear them stalking
     Soon you'll please their appetite
     They devour
     Hammer of justice crushes you
     Overpower
     The ultimate in vanity
     Exploiting their supremacy
     I can't believe the things you say
     I can't believe
     I can't believe the price you pay
     Nothing can save you
     Justice is lost
     Justice is raped
     Justice is gone
     Pulling your strings
     Justice is done
     Seeking no truth
     Winning is all
     Find it so grim
     So true
     So real
     Apathy their stepping stone
     So unfeeling
     Hidden deep animosity
     So deceiving
     Through your eyes their light burns
     Hoping to find
     Inquisition sinking you
     With prying minds
     The ultimate in vanity
     Exploiting their supremacy
     I can't believe the things you say
     I can't believe
     I can't believe the price you pay
     Nothing can save you
     Justice is lost
     Justice is raped
     Justice is gone
     Pulling your strings
     Justice is done
     Seeking no truth
     Winning is all
     Find it so grim
     So true
     So real
     Lady Justice has been raped
     Truth assassin
     Rolls of red tape seal your lips
     Now you're done in
     Their money tips her scales again
     Make your deal
     Just what is truth? I cannot tell
     Cannot feel
     The ultimate in vanity
     Exploiting their supremacy
     I can't believe the things you say
     I can't believe
     I can't believe the price you pay
     Nothing can save you
     Justice is lost
     Justice is raped
     Justice is gone
     Pulling your strings
     Justice is done
     Seeking no truth
     Winning is all
     Find it so grim
     So true
     So real
     Seeking no truth
     Winning is all
     Find it so grim
     So true
     So real



     Do you see what I see?
     Truth is an offence
     You silence for your confidence
     Do you hear what I hear?
     Doors are slamming shut
     Limit your imagination, keep you where they must
     Do you feel what I feel?
     Bittering distress
     Who decides what you express?
     Do you take what I take?
     Endurance is the word
     Moving back instead of forward seems to me absurd
     Doesn't matter what you see
     Or into it what you read
     You can do it your own way
     If it's done just how I say
     Independence limited
     Freedom of choice
     Choice is made for you my friend
     Freedom of speech
     Speech is words that they will bend
     Freedom with their exception
     Do you fear what I fear?
     Living properly
     Truths to you are lies to me
     Do you choose what I choose?
     More alternatives
     Energy derives from both the plus and negative
     Do you need what I need?
     Boundaries overthrown
     Look inside, to each his won
     Do you trust what I trust?
     Me, myself, and I
     Penetrate the smoke screen, I see through the
     Selfish lie
     Doesn't matter what you see
     Or into it what you read
     You can do it your own way
     If it's done just how I say
     Independence limited
     Freedom of choice
     Choice is made for you my friend
     Freedom of speech
     Speech is words that they will bend
     Freedom with their exception
     Do you know what I know?
     Your money and your wealth
     You silence just to hear yourself
     Do you want what I want?
     Desire not a thing
     I hunger after independence, lengthen freedom's
     ring
     Doesn't matter what you see
     Or into it what you read
     You can do it your own way
     If it's done just how I say
     Independence limited
     Freedom of choice
     Choice is made for you my friend
     Freedom of speech
     Speech is words that they will bend
     Freedom with their exception
     Doesn't matter what you see
     Or into it what you read
     You can do it your own way
     If it's done just how I say



     I can't remember anything
     Can't tell if this is true or dream
     Deep down inside I feel to scream
     This terrible silence stops me
     Now that the war is through with me
     I'm waking up, I cannot see
     That there's not much left of me
     Nothing is real but pain now
     Hold my breath as I wish for death
     Oh please God, wake me
     Back in the womb it's much too real
     In pumps life that I must feel
     But can't look forward to reveal
     Look to the time when I'll live
     Fed through the tube that sticks in me
     Just like a wartime novelty
     Tied to machines that make me be
     Cut this life off from me
     Hold my breath as I wish for death
     Oh please God, wake me
     Now the world is gone I'm just one
     Oh God help me Hold my breath as I wish for
     Death
     Oh please God, help me
     Darkness Imprisoning me
     All that I see
     Absolute horror
     I cannot live
     I cannot die
     Trapped in myself
     Body my holding cell
     Landmine Has taken my sight
     Taken my speech
     Taken my hearing
     Taken my arms
     Taken my legs
     Taken my soul
     Left me with a life in Hell



     Suspicion is your name
     Your honesty to blame
     Put dignity to shame

     Intruding
     Doubt sunk itself in you
     It's teeth and talons through
     You're living catch-22

     Silently
     Certainly
     In vertigo you will be

     Shortest straw
     Pulled for you
     Shortest straw
     Pulled for you
     Shortest straw
     Shortest straw has been pulled for you
     Behind you, hands are tied
     Your being, ostracized
     Your hell is multiplied
     Upending
     The fallout has begun
     Oppressive damage done
     Your many turned to none
     To nothing
     You're reaching your nadir
     Your will has disappeared
     The lie is crystal clear
     Defending
     Channels red
     One word said
     Blacklisted
     With vertigo make you dead
     Shortest straw
     Challenge liberty
     Downed by law
     Live in infamy
     Rub you raw
     Witchhunt riding through
     Shortest straw
     This shortest straw has been pulled for you



     My life suffocates
     Planting seeds of hate
     I've loved, turned to hate
     Trapped far beyond my fate
     I give
     You take
     This life that I forsake
     Been cheated of my youth
     You turned this lie to truth
     Anger
     Misery
     You'll suffer unto me
     Harvester of sorrow
     Language of the mad
     Harvester of sorrow
     Pure black looking clear
     My work is done soon here
     Try getting back to me
     Get back which used to be
     Drink up
     Shoot in
     Let the beatings begin
     Distributor of pain
     Your loss becomes my gain
     Anger
     Misery
     You'll suffer unto me
     Harvester of sorrow
     Language of the mad
     Harvester of sorrow
     All have said their prayers
     Invade their nightmares
     To see into my eyes
     You'll find where murder lies
     Infanticide
     Harvester of sorrow
     Language of the mad
     Harvester of sorrow
     Language of the mad
     Harvester of sorrow



     Never hunger
     Never prosper
     I haven fallen prey to failure
     Struggle within
     Triggered again
     Now the candle burns at both ends
     Twisting under schizophrenia
     Falling deep into dementia
     Old habits reappear
     Fighting the fear of fear
     Growing conspiracy
     Everyone's after me
     Frayed ends of sanity
     Hear them calling
     Hear them calling me
     Birth of terror
     Death of much more
     I'm the slave of fear, my captor
     Never warnings
     Spreading its wings
     As I wait for the horror she brings
     Loss of interest, question, wonder
     Waves of fear they pull me under
     Old habits reappear
     Fighting the fear of fear
     Growing conspiracy
     Everyone's after me
     Frayed ends of sanity
     Hear them calling
     Hear them calling me
     Into ruin
     I am sinking
     Hostage of this nameless feeling
     Hell is set free
     Flooded I'll be
     Feel the undertow inside me
     Height, Hell, Time, Haste, Terror, Tension
     Life, Death, Want, Waste, Mass Depression
     Old habits reappear
     Fighting the fear of fear
     Growing conspiracy
     Myself is after me
     Frayed ends of sanity
     Hear them calling
     Frayed ends of sanity
     Hear them calling
     Hear them calling me



     When a man lies he murders
     Some part of the world
     These are the pale deaths which
     Men miscall their lives
     All this I cannot bear
     To witness any longer
     Cannot the kingdom of salvation
     Take me home



     Dear Mother
     Dear Father
     What is this hell you have put me through
     Believer
     Deceiver
     Day in day out live my life through you
     Pushed onto me what's wrong or right
     Hidden from this thing that they call life
     Dear Mother
     Dear Father
     Every thought I'd think you'd disapprove
     Curator
     Dictator
     Always censoring my every move
     Children are seen but are not heard
     Tear out everything inspired
     Innocence
     Torn from me without your shelter
     Barred reality
     I'm living blindly
     Dear Mother
     Dear Father
     Time has frozen still what's left to be
     Hear nothing
     Say nothing
     Cannot face the fact I think for me
     No guarantee, it's life as is
     But damn you for not giving me my chance
     Dear Mother
     Dear Father
     You've clipped my wings before I learned to fly
     Unspoiled
     Unspoken
     I've outgrown that fucking lullaby
     Same thing I've always heard from you
     Do as I say not as I do
     Innocence
     Torn from me without your shelter
     Barred reality
     I'm living blindly
     I'm in hell without you
     Cannot cope without you two
     Shocked at the world that I see
     Innocent victim please rescue me
     Dear Mother
     Dear Father
     Hidden in your world you've made for me
     I'm seething
     I'm bleeding
     Ripping wounds in me that never heal
     Undying spite I feel for you
     Living out this hell you always knew

     Enter Sandman

     Say your prayers little one
     don't forget, my son
     to include everyone
     tuck you in, warm within
     keep you free from sin
     till the sandman he comes
     sleep with one eye open
     gripping your pillow tight
     exit light
     enter night
     take my hand
     off to never never land
     something's wrong, shut the light
     heavy thoughts tonight
     and they aren't of snow white
     dreams of war, dreams of liars
     dreams of dragon's fire
     and of things that will bite
     sleep with one eye open
     gripping your pillow tight
     exit light
     enter night
     take my hand
     off to never never land
     now I lay me down to sleep
     pray the lord my soul to keep
     if I die before I wake
     pray the lord my soul to take
     hush little baby, don't say a word
     and never mind that noise you heard
     it's just the beast under your bed,
     in your closet, in your head
     exit light
     enter night
     grain of sand
     exit light
     enter night
     take my hand
     we're off to never never land

     No more!
     the craps rolls out your mouth again
     haven't changed, your brain is still gelatin
     little whispers circle around your head
     why don't you worry about yourself instead
     who are you? where ya been? where ya from?
     gossip is burning on the tip of your tongue
     you lie so much you believe yourself
     judge not lest ye be judged yourself
     holier than thou
     you are
     holier than thou
     you are
     you know not
     before you judge me take a look at you
     can't you find somethig better to do
     point the finger, slow to understand
     arrogance and ignorance go hand in hand
     it's not who you are it's who you know
     others lives are the basis of your own
     burn your bridges build them back with wealth
     judge not lest ye be judged yourself
     holier than thou
     you are
     holier than thou
     you are
     you know not



     New blood joins this earth
     and quikly he's subdued
     through constant pain disgrace
     the young boy learns their rules
     with time the child draws in
     this whipping boy done wrong
     deprived of all his thoughts
     the young man struggles on and on he's known
     a vow unto his own
     that never from this day
     his will they'll take away
     what I've felt
     what I've known
     never shined through in what I've shown
     never be
     never see
     won't see what might have been
     what I've felt
     what I've known
     never shined through in what I've shown
     never free
     never me
     so I dub thee unforgiven
     they dedicate their lives
     to running all of his
     he tries to please them all
     this bitter man he is
     throughout his life the same
     he's battled constantly
     this fight he cannot win
     a tired man they see no longer cares
     the old man then prepares
     to die regretfully
     that old man here is me
     what I've felt
     what I've known
     never shined through in what I've shown
     never be
     never see
     won't see what might have been
     what I've felt
     what I've known
     never shined through in what I've shown
     never free
     never me
     so I dub the unforgiven
     you labeled me
     I'll label you
     so I dub the unforgiven




     ...and the road becomes my bride
     I have stripped of all but pride
     so in her I do confide
     and she keeps me satisfied
     gives me all I need
     ...and with dust in throat I crave
     only knowledge will I save
     to the game you stay a slave
     rover wanderer
     nomad vagabond
     call me what you will
     but I'll take my time anywhere
     free to speak my mind anywhere
     and I'll redefine anywhere
     anywhere I may roam
     where I lay my head is home
     ...and the earth becomes my throne
     I adapt to the unknown
     under wandering stars I've grown
     by myself but not alone
     I ask no one
     ...and my ties are severed clean
     the less I have the more I gain
     off the beaten path I reign
     rover wanderer
     nomad vagabond
     call me what you will
     but I'll take my time anywhere
     I'm free to speak my mind anywhere
     and I'll never mind anywhere
     anywhere I may roam
     where I lay my head is home
     but i'll take my time anywhere
     free to speak my mind
     and I'll take my find anywhere
     anywhere I may roam
     where I lay my head is home
     carved upon my stone
     my body lie, but still I roam
     wherever I may roam



     Liberty or death, what we so proudly hail
     once you provoke her, rattling of her tail
     never begins it, never, but once engaged...
     never surrenders, showing the fangs of rage
     don't tread on me
     so be it
     threaten no more
     to secure peace is to prepare for war
     so be it
     settle the score
     touch me again for the words that you'll hear evermore...
     don't tread on me
     love it or live it, she with the deadly bite
     quick is the blue tongue, forked as lighting strike
     shining with brightness, always on surveillance
     the eyes, they never close, emblem of vigilance
     don't tread on me
     so be it
     threaten no more
     to secure peace is to prepare for war
     so be it
     settle the score
     touch me again for the words that you'll hear evermore...
     don't tread on me
     so be it
     threaten no more
     to secure peace is to prepare for war
     liberty or death, what we so proudly hail
     once you provoke her, rattling on her tail
     so be it
     threaten no more
     to secure peace is to prepare for war
     so be it
     settle the score
     touch me again for the words that you'll hear evermore...
     don't tread on me



     All that is, was and will be
     universe much too big to see
     time and space never ending
     disturbing thoughts, questions pending
     limitations of human understanding
     too quick to criticize
     obligation to survive
     we hunger to be alive
     all that is, ever
     ever was
     will be ever
     twisting
     turning
     through the never
     in the dark, see past our eyes
     pursuit of trhuth no matter where it lies
     gazing up to the breeze of the heavens
     on a quest, meaning, reason
     came to be, how it begun
     all alone in the family of the sun
     curiosity teasing everyone
     on our home, third stone from the sun
     all that is, ever
     ever was
     will be ever
     twisting
     turning
     through the never
     on through the never
     we must go
     on through the never
     out of the
     edge of forever
     we must go
     on through the never
     then ever comes
     all that is, ever
     ever was
     will be ever
     who we are
     ask forever
     twisting
     turning
     through the never
     never



     So close no matter how far
     couldn't be much more from the heart
     forever trusting who we are
     and nothing else matters

     never cared for what they do
     never cared for what they know
     and I know
     so close no matter how far
     couldn't be much more from the heart
     forever trusting who we are
     no nothing else matters

     Pride you took
     pride you feel
     pride that you felt when you'd kneel
     not the word
     not the love
     not what you thought from above
     it feeds
     it grows
     it clouds all that you will know
     deceit
     deceive
     decide just what you believe
     I see faith in your eyes
     never your hear the discouraging lies
     I hear faith in your cries
     broken is the promise, betrayal
     the healing hand held back by the deepened nail
     follow the god that failed
     find your peace
     find your say
     find the smooth road in your way
     trust you gave
     a child to save
     left you cold and him in grave
     it feeds
     it grows
     it clouds all that you will know
     deceit
     deceive
     decide just what you believe
     I see faith in your eyes
     never you hear the discouraging lies
     I hear faith in your cries
     broken is the promise, betrayal
     the healing hand held back by the deepened nail
     follow the god that failed
     I see faith in your eyes
     broken is the promise, betrayal
     the healing hand held back by the deepened nail

     follow the god that failed



     You just stood there screaming
     fearing no one was listening to you
     they say the empty can rattles the most
     the sound of your voice must soothe you
     hearing only what you want to hear
     and knowing only what you've heard
     you you're smothered in tragedy
     you're out to save the world
     misery
     you insist that the weight of the world
     should be on your shoulders
     misery
     there's much more to life than what you see
     my friend of misery
     you still stood there screaming
     no one caring about these words you tell
     my friend before your voice is gone
     one man's fun is another's hell
     these times are sent to try men's souls
     but something's wrong with all you see
     you you'll take it on all yourself
     remember, misery loves company
     misery
     you insist that the weight of the world
     should be on your shoulders
     misery
     there's much more to life than what you see
     my friend of misery
     you just stood there creaming
     my friend of misery



     Reaching out for something you've got to feel
     while clutching to what you had thought was real
     kicking at a dead horse pleases you
     no way of showing your gratitude
     so many things you don't want to do
     what is it? what have you got ot lose
     what the hell
     what is you think you're gonna find?
     hypocrite
     boredom sets into the boring mind
     struggle within it suits you fine
     struggle within your ruin
     struggle within you seal your own coffin
     struggle within the struggling within
     home is not a home it becomes a hell
     turning it into your prison cell
     advantages are taken, not handed out
     while you struggle inside your hell
     reaching out
     grabbing for something tou've got to feel
     closing in
     the pressure upon you is so real
     struggle within it suits you fine
     struggle within your ruin
     struggle within you seal your own coffin
     struggle within the struggling within
     reaching out for something you've got to feel
     while clutching to what you had thought was real
     what the hell
     what is you think you're gonna find
     hypocrite
     boredom sets into the boring mind
     struggle within it suits you fine
     struggle within your ruin
     struggle within you seal your own coffin
     struggle within the struggling within

     Open door so I walk inside
     Close my eyes, find my place to hide
     And I shake as I take it in
     Let the show begin
     Open my eyes just to have them closed again
     Well on my way, but on my way to where I've been
     It follows me as it takes me in its fog
     I twist away as I give this world the nod
     Open door so I walk inside
     Close my eyes, find my place to hide
     And I shake as I take it in
     Let the show begin
     Open my eyes just to have them closed once again
     Don't want control
     As it takes me down and down and down again
     Is that the moon
     Or just a light that lights this dead end street
     Is that you there
     Or just another demon that I meet
     The higher you are, the farther you fall
     The longer the walk, the farther you crawl
     My body, my temple, this temple it tilts
     Step into the house that Jack built
     The higher you are, the farther you fall
     The longer the walk, the farther you crawl
     My body, my temple, this temple it tilts
     Step into the house that Jack built
     Open door as I walk inside
     Swallow me so the pain subsides
     And I shake as I take it in
     Let the show begin
     The higher you are, the farther you fall
     The longer the walk, the farther you crawl
     My body, my temple, this temple it tilts
     Step into the house that Jack built
     The higher you are, the farther you fall
     The longer the walk, the farther you crawl
     My body, my temple, this temple it tilts
     Yes I am...
     Open my eyes
     It swallows me
     Is that you there
     I twist away



     Where do I take this pain of mine?
     I run but it stays right by my side
     So tear me open, pour me out
     There's things inside that scream and shout
     And the pain still hates me
     So hold me, until it sleeps
     Just like the curse, just like the stray
     You feed it once and now it stays
     Now it stays
     So tear me open but beware
     There's things inside without a care
     And the dirt still stains me
     So wash me until I'm clean
     It grips you, so hold me
     It stains you, so hold me
     It hates you, so hold me
     It holds you, so hold me...
     Until it sleeps
     So tell me why you've chosen me
     Don't want your grip, don't want your greed
     Don't want it
     I'll tear you open, make you gone
     No more can you hurt anyone
     And the fear still shakes me
     So hold me, until it sleeps
     It grips you, so hold me
     It stains you, so hold me
     It hates you, so hold me
     It holds you, holds you, holds you
     Until it sleeps
     I don't want it, want it, want it, want it, want it, no!
     So tear me open but beware
     There's things inside without a care
     And the dirt still stains me
     So wash me 'til I'm clean
     I'll tear me open, make you gone
     No longer will you hurt anyone
     And the hate still shakes me
     So hold me, until it sleeps
     Until it sleeps
     Until it sleeps
     Until it sleeps



     Wish I may
     Wish I might
     Have this wish tonight
     Are you satisfied?
     Dig for gold
     Dig for fame
     You dig to make your name
     Are you pacified?
     All the wants you waste
     All the things you've chased
     And it all crashes down
     And you break your crown
     And you point your finger
     But there's no one around
     Just want one thing
     Just to play the king
     But the castle crumbled
     And you've left with just a name
     Where's your crown
     King nothing
     Hard and cold
     Bought and sold
     A heart hard as gold
     Are you satisfied
     Wish I may
     Wish I might
     You wish your life away
     Are you pacified
     All the wants you waste
     All the things you've chased
     And it all crashes down
     And you break your crown
     And you point your finger
     But there's no one around
     Just want one thing
     Just to play the king
     But the castle crumbled
     And you've left with just a name
     Where's your crown
     King Nothing
     I wish I may
     I wish I might
     Have this wish I wish tonight
     I want the star
     I want it now
     I want it all and i don't care how
     Careful what you wish
     Careful what you say
     Careful what you wish
     You may regret it
     Careful what you wish
     You just might get it
     Then it all crashes down
     And you break your crown
     And you point your finger
     But there's no one around
     Just want one thing
     Just to play the king
     But the castle crumbled
     And you've left with just a name
     Where's your crown
     King Nothing

     Mama they try and break me
     The window burns to light the way back home
     A light that warms no matter where they've gone
     They're off to find the hero of the day
     But what if they should fall by someone's wicked way
     Still the window burns
     Time so slowly turns
     And someone there is sighing
     Keepers of the flames
     Do ya feel your name?
     Can't you hear your babies crying?
     Mama they try and break me
     Still they try and break me
     'Scuze me while I tend to how I feel
     These things return to me that still seem real
     Now deservingly this easy chair
     But the rocking stopped by wheels of despair
     Don't want your aid
     But the fist I've make
     For years can't hold or feel
     No, I'm not all me
     So please excuse me
     While I tend to how I feel
     But now the dreams and waking screams
     That ever last the night
     So build the wall, behind the crawl
     And hide until it's light
     So can you hear your babies cryin' now?
     Still the window burns
     Time so slowly turns

     That all this misery
     Is just for oh poor twisted me
     Poor mistreated me
     Poor mistreated me
     I drown without a sea
     Lung fills with sorrow, lungs fill with misery
     Inhaling the deep dark blue
     Oh woah is me
     Such a burden to be
     The poor mistreated me
     To finally reach the shore
     Survive the storm
     Now you're bare and cold
     The sea was warm
     So warm, you bathe your soul again
     Good to feel my friend
     Oh woah is me
     Such a burden to be
     Oh poor twisted me

     Mama she has taught me well
     Told me when I was young
     Son your life's an open book
     Don't close it before it's done
     The brightest flame burns quickest
     Is what I heard they say
     A son's heart's owned to mother
     But I must find my way
     Let my heart go
     Let your son grow
     Mama let your heart go
     Or let this heart be still
     Rebel my new last name
     Wild blood in my veins
     Apron strings around my neck
     The mark that still remains
     Left home at an early age
     Of what I heard was wrong
     I never ask forgiveness
     For what I said is done
     Let my heart go
     Let your son grow
     Mama let your heart go
     Or let this heart be still
     Never I ask you
     But never I gave
     But you gave me your emptiness
     And now take to my grave
     Never I ask you
     But never I gave
     But you gave me your emptiness
     And now take to my grave
     So let this heart be still
     Mama now I'm coming home
     I'm not all you wished of me
     But a mother's love for her son
     Unspoken, hear me be
     Yeah I took your love for granted
     And all the things you said to me
     I need your arms to welcome me
     But a cold stone's all I see
     Let my heart go
     Let your son grow
     Mama let your heart go
     Or let this heart be still
     Let my heart go
     Mama let my heart go
     You never let my heart go
     So let this heart be still
     Never I ask you
     But never I gave
     But you gave me your emptiness
     And now take to my grave
     Never I ask you
     But never I gave
     But you gave me your emptiness
     And now take to my grave
     So let this heart be still



     Forgive me father
     For I have sinned
     Find me guilty of the life I feel within
     And when I'm branded
     This mark of shame
     Should I look down disgraced
     Or straight ahead
     And know that you must blame
     I am the secret
     I am the sin
     I am the guilty
     And I, I am the thorn within
     Forgive me father
     For I have sinned
     Find me guilty when true guilt is from within
     So point your fingers
     Point right at me
     For I am shadows and will follow me
     One and the same are we
     I am the secret
     I am the sin
     I am the guilty
     And I, I am the thorn within
     I do your time
     I take your fall
     I'm branded guilty
     For us all
     So point your fingers
     Point right at me
     For I am shadows and will follow you
     One and the same are we
     I am the secret
     I am the sin
     I am the guilty
     And I, I am the thorn within



     Story starts, quiet town
     Small town boy, big time frown
     Never talks, never plays
     Different path, lost his way
     Then streets of red, red I'm afraid
     No confetti, no parade
     Nothing happens in this boring place
     But oh my god, how that all did change
     Now they all pray
     Blood stains wash away
     He said "lost my way"
     This bloody day
     Lost my way
     I heard him, he said "lost my way"
     This bloody day
     Lost my way
     All things wash away
     But blood stained the sun red today
     I always said, somethin' wrong
     With little strange Ronnie Long
     Never laughed, never smile
     Talked alone, miles and miles
     Gallow calls, son I say
     Keep your smile, and laugh all day
     Think once again, in this boring place
     For little boys, how the soon change
     Now they all pray
     Blood stains wash away
     He said "lost my way"
     This bloody day
     Lost my way
     I heard him, he said "lost my way"
     This bloody day
     Lost my way
     All things wash away
     But blood stained the sun red today
     Yeah, well all the green things die
     When Ronnie go to the place
     He said, "Don't you dare ask why
     I'm cursed to wear this name"
     Now we all know why children called him
     Ronnie Frown
     When he pulled that gun from his pocket
     They'd all fall down
     He said "lost my way"
     This bloody day
     Lost my way
     I heard him, he said "lost my way"
     This bloody day
     Lost my way
     All things wash away
     But blood stained the sun red today

     For You

     Time was never on my side
     So on I wait my whole lifetime
     Outlaw of torn
     And I'm torn
     Hear me
     And if I close my mind in fear
     Please pry it open

     And if my face becomes sincere
     Beware
     Hold me
     And when I start to come undone
     Stitch me together

     And when you see me strut
     Remind me of what left this outlaw torn

     Lay beside me,
     Tell me what they've done
     And speak the words I wanna hear,
     To make my demons run
     The door is locked now,
     But it's opened if you're true
     If you can understand the me,
     I can understand the you
     Lay beside me,
     Under wicked skies
     Through black of day
     Dark of night,
     We share this paralyze
     The door cracks open,
     But there's no sun shining through
     Black heart scarring darker still,
     But there's no sun shining through
     No, there's no sun shining through
     No, there's no sun shining...
     What I've felt,
     What I've known
     Turn the pages, turn the stone
     Behind the door,
     Should I open it for you?
     What I've felt,
     What I've known
     Sick and tired, I stand alone
     Could you be there,
     Cause I'm the one who waits for you
     ....Or are you unforgiven, too?
     Lay beside me,
     This won't hurt I swear
     She loves me not
     She loves me still,
     But she'll never love again
     She lay beside me,
     But she'll be there when I'm gone
     Black heart scarring darker still,
     Yeah she'll be there when I'm gone
     Yeah she'll be there when I'm gone
     Dead sure she'll be there...
     What I've felt,
     What I've known
     Turn the pages, turn the stone
     Behind the door,
     Should I open it for you?
     What I've felt,
     What I've known
     Sick and tired, I stand alone
     Could you be there,
     Cause I'm the one
     Who waits for you
     ....Or are you unforgiven, too?
     Lay beside me,
     Tell me what I've done
     The door is closed,
     So are your eyes,
     But now I see the sun
     Now I see the sun
     Yes, now I see it...
     What I've felt,
     What I've known
     Turn the pages, turn the stone
     Behind the door,
     Should I open it for you?
     What I've felt,
     What I've known
     Sick and tired, I stand alone
     Could you be there,
     Cause I'm the one who waits
     The one who waits for you
     What I've felt,
     What I've known
     Turn the pages, turn the stone
     Behind the door,
     Should I open it for you? (so I dub thee unforgiven)
     What I've felt
     What I've known
     I take this key (never free) and I bury it (never me) in you
     Because you're unforgiven, too
     Never free, never me
     'Cause you're unforgiven, too



     I look at you, then you - me
     Hungry and thirsty are we
     Holding the lion's share
     Holding the key
     Holding me back 'cause I'm striving to be....
     Better than you
     Lock horns, I push and I strive
     Somehow I feel more alive
     Bury the need for it
     Bury the seed
     Bury me deep when there's no will to be....
     Better than you
     Can't stop this train from rollin'
     No, nothin' brings me down
     No, can't stop this train from rollin' on and on
     Forever on and on....
     'Till I'm better than you
     Can't stop this train from rollin'
     No, you can't take it down
     No, never stop this locomotion on and on
     No, no you can't bring me down...
     'Cause I'm better than you
     Better than you



     Don't go lookin for snakes
     You might find them
     Don't send your eyes to the sun
     You might blind them
     Haven't I seen you here before?
     Watch the puppets dancin'
     See the clowns fall down
     Tie your tap shoes tightly
     And wear them into town
     See you crawlin'

     Play the game so nicely
     Check, it's your move now
     Standing in the jungle
     With serpents I have found
     See you crawlin'
     See you crawlin' in
     Don't go lookin' for snakes
     You might find them
     Don't send your eyes to the sun
     You might blind them
     Haven't I seen you here before?
     Have your heroes disappeared?
     See you crawlin'
     See you crawlin' in
     Don't go lookin for snakes
     You might find them
     Don't send your eyes to the sun

     So wake up sleepy one
     It's time to save your world
     Steal dreams and give to you
     Shoplift a thought or two
     All children touch the sun
     Burn fingers one by one, by one
     Will this earth be good to you?
     Keep you clean or stain through?
     So wake up sleepy one
     It's time to save your world
     You're where the wild things are
     Toy soldiers off to war
     Big eyes to open soon
     Believing all under to sun and moon
     But does heaven know you're here?
     And did they give you smiles and tears
     No, no tears
     Will this earth be good to you?
     Keep you clean or stain through?
     So wake up sleepy one

     My fingers seek my veins
     There's a dog at your back step
     He must come in from the rain
     I fall cause I let go
     The net below has rot away
     So my eyes seek reality
     My fingers seek my veins
     The trash fire is warm
     But nowhere safe from the storm
     I can't bare to see
     What I've let me be
     So wicked and worn
     So as I write to you
     Of what is done and to do
     Maybe you'll understand
     And won't cry for this man
     'Cause low man is due
     Please forgive me
     My eyes seek reality
     My fingers feel for faith
     Touch clean with a dirty hand
     I touch the clean to the waste
     The trash fire is warm
     But nowhere safe from the storm
     An I can't bare to see
     What I've let me be
     So wicked and worn
     So as I write to you

     So you bring this poor dog in from the rain
     Though he just wants right back out again
     I cry, to the alleyway
     Confess all to the rain
     But I lie, lie straight to the mirror
     The one I've broken to match my face
     The trash fire is warm
     But nowhere safe from the storm
     I can't bare to see
     What I've let me be
     So wicked and worn
     So as I write to you
     Of what is done and to do
     Maybe you'll understand

     Suppose I say...
     I'm never satisfied
     Suppose I say
     You cut some root
     To make the tree survive
     Just let me kill you for a while
     Just let me kill you for a smile
     Just let me kill you once
     I'm oh so bored to death
     I hunger
     I hunger
     I eat
     Born into attitude
     Asleep at the wheel
     Throw all your bullets in the fire
     And run like hell
     Why cure the fever?
     What ever happened to sweat?
     Suppose I say
     The vultures smile at me
     Suppose I say
     I've sent them down
     And they plan to pick you clean
     And satisfaction this way comes
     And satisfaction this way comes
     And satisfaction's here and gone, gone
     gone again
     I hunger
     I hunger
     I eat
     Born into attitude
     Asleep at the wheel
     Throw all your bullets in the fire
     And stand there
     Born into attitude
     Twist mother tongue
     Throw all your bullets in the fire
     And run like hell
     Why cure the fever?
     What ever happened to sweat?
     Just let me kill you for a while
     Just let me kill you for a smile
     Just let me kill you once for me
     I'm bored to death
     And satisfaction this way comes
     And satisfaction this way comes
     And satisfaction's here and gone, gone
     gone again

     Dolls of voodoo all stuck with pins
     One for each of us and our sins
     So you lay us in a line
     Push your pins they make us humble
     Only you can tell in time
     If we fall or merely stumble
     But tell me
     Can you hear what father's done?
     Or fix the hole in a mother's son?
     Can you heal the broken worlds within?
     Can you strip away so we may start again?
     Tell me
     Can you heal what father's done?
     Or cut this rope and let us run?
     Just when all seems fine
     And I'm pain-free
     You jab another pin
     You jab another pin in me
     Mirror, mirror upon the wall
     Break the spell or become the doll
     See you sharpening the pins
     So the holes will remind us
     We're just toys in the hands of another
     And in time, needles turn from shine to rust
     But tell me
     Can you hear what father's done?
     Or fix the hole in a mother's son?
     Can you heal the broken worlds within?
     Can you strip away so we may start again?
     Tell me
     Can you heal what a father's done?
     Or cut this rope and let us run?
     Just when all seems fine
     And I'm pain-free
     You jab another pin
     You jab another pin in me
     Jab it
     Blood for face
     Sweat for dirt
     Three X's for the stone
     To break this curse
     A ritual is due
     I believe I'm not alone
     Shell of shotgun
     Pint of gin
     Numb us up to shield the pins
     Renew our faith
     Which way we can
     To fall in love with life again
     So tell me
     Can you hear what father's done?
     Or fix the hole in a mother's son?
     Can you heal the broken worlds within?
     Can you strip away so we may start again?
     Tell me
     Can you heal what father's done?
     Or cut this rope and let us run?
     Just when all seems fine
     And I'm pain-free
     You jab another pin
     You jab another pin in me
     No more pins in me
     No more no more pins in me
     No more no more pins in me
     No more no more no more, no no no.........

     On a long and lonesome highway east of Omaha
     You can hear the engine moanin' out his one long one note song
     You can think about the woman or the girl you knew the night before
     But your thoughts will be wandering the way they always do
     When you're ridin' sixteen hours and there's nothin' much to do
     And you don't feel much like ridin', you just wish the trip was through
     Here I am
     On the road again
     There I am
     Up on the stage
     Here I go
     Playin' star again
     There I go
     Turn the page
     Well you walk into a restaurant, strung out from the road
     And you feel the eyes upon you as you're shakin' off the cold
     You pretend it doesn't bother you but you just want to explode
     Most times you can't hear them talk, other times you can
     All the same old clichG©'s, "Is that a woman or a man?"
     And you always seem outnumbered, you don't dare make a stand
     Here I am
     On the road again
     There I am
     Up on the stage
     Here I go
     Playin' star again
     There I go
     Turn the page
     Out there in the spotlight you're a million miles away
     Every ounce of energy you try to give away
     As the sweat pours out your body like the music that you play
     Later in the evening as you lie awake in bed
     With the echoes of the amplifiers ringin' in your head
     You smoke the day's last cigarette, rememberin' what she said
     Here I am
     On the road again
     There I am
     Up on the stage
     Here I go
     Playin' star again
     There I go
     Turn the page
     Here I am
     On the road again
     There I am
     Up on the stage
     Here I go
     Playin' star again
     There I go
     There I go

     I was born on the cemetary
     Under the sign of the moon
     Rasied from my grave by the dead
     I was made a mercenary
     In the legions of Hell
     Now I'm king of pain, I'm insane
     You know my only pleasure
     Is to hear you cry
     I'd love to hear you cry
     I'd love to feel you die
     And I'll be the first
     To watch your funeral
     And I'll be the last to leave
     I'd love to hear you cry
     And when you're down
     Beyond the ground
     I'll dig up your body again
     And make love to shame
     Oh lady cry, and say goodbye
     Oh lady cry, and say goodbye
     You've gotta say goodbye
     'Cause I will eat your mind
     Curse of the Pharaohs
     Way out in Egypt in the valley of kings
     Where the mummified pharaohs
     Pretend dead in their sleep
     Don't touch, never ever steal
     Unless you're in for the kill
     Or you'll be hit by the curse of the pharaohs
     Yes you'll be hit and the curse is on you
     Now if you're breakin' the seals
     And disturbing the peace
     Then you're startin' up a curse
     Bringin' evil disease
     Don't touch, never ever steal
     Unless you're in for the kill
     Or you'll be hit by the curse of the pharaohs
     Yes you'll be hit and the curse is on you
     The curse of the pharaohs can be so deadly
     Or just destroying your future
     Makin' it all shady
     Don't touch, never ever steal
     Unless you're in for the kill
     Or you'll be hit by the curse of the pharaohs
     Yes you'll be hit and the curse is on you
     Satan's Fall
     They're walking by the night
     The moon has frozen blue
     Long black coats a shelter for the rain
     Their load must get through
     Now bats are leaving their trees
     They're joining the call
     Seven satanic Hell preachers
     Heading for the hall
     Brining the blood of a newborn child
     Got to succeed, if not it's Satan's fall
     Home...Come home
     Eveil messengers with blood stained wings
     Home...Come home
     Home...Come home
     Is it Satan's Fall?
     No...It's Satan's call
     Craniums high on stakes
     It's Satan's epigraph
     Something you can't erase...666
     They call him the beast
     Use your demon eyes, uncover the disguise
     Time is out...yeah...I don't need your god
     Oh the law of Satan
     Pray and obey it forever
     Oh the law of Satan
     Innocent lovers...it's a lie
     Iron fists won't do no good
     Against the evil eyes
     Of seven holy Hell preachers
     Don't you even try
     Now they cross the river Styx
     And see the castle rise so high
     Waiting on the other shore for
     Charon to arrive
     A shape with horns and glowing eyes,
     Satan's still alive
     He receives the sacrifice
     With evil laughs and pride
     You better escape, you've got to escape
     You cannot escape
     A Corpse Without Soul
     Listen
     I'm a corpse
     I'm a corpse
     I'm a corpse without soul
     Satan
     He's taken
     He's taken
     He's taken his toll
     And he took it out on me
     I
     I'm trapped
     I'm trapped
     I'm trapped in his spell
     Tonight
     I'm going
     I'm going
     I'm going to Hell inside his spell
     I was walking down among the graves
     I heard a cry, my shadow is gone
     Emptiness in my body, I felt so alone
     Small black wings on my naked back
     Now guess what I saw on one of the stones
     I saw my soul, in a magical haze
     It was all dressed up as a corpse in a wedding dress
     Small black wings on my naked back
     Now hear my prayer, beggin' for mercy
     I'm living to die, Satan has taken his toll
     Into the Coven
     Howl like a wolf
     And a witch will open the door
     Follow me and meet our high priestesscome,
     come into my coven
     And become Lucifer's child
     Undress until you're naked
     And put on this white coat
     Take this white cross and go
     To the middle of the ring
     Come, come into my coven
     And become Lucifer's child
     Now crush it, crush the cross
     Now suck the blood from this unholy knife
     Say after me: My soul belongs to Satan
     Now, now you're into my coven
     You are Lucifer's child
     Into the coven
     Lucifer's child



     The clock strikes twelve and moondrops burst
     Out at you from their hiding place
     Like gasoline and oil on a madman's face
     Reason tends to fly away
     Like lesser birds on the four winds
     Like silver scraps in May
     Now the sands become a crust
     And most of you have gone away
     Come Susie dear, let's take a walk
     Just out there upon the beach
     I know you'll soon be married
     And you'll want to know where wind comes from
     Well it's never said at all
     On the map that Carrie reads
     Behind the clock back there you know
     At the Four Winds Bar
     Hey - hey hey!
     Hey - hey hey!
     Hey - hey hey!
     Hey - hey hey!
     Four doors at the Four Winds Bar
     Two doors locked and windows barred
     One door's let to take you in
     The other one just mirrors it
     Hey - hey hey!
     Hey - hey hey!
     Hey - hey hey!
     Hey - hey hey!
     In hellish glare and inference
     The other one's a duplicate
     The Queenly flux, eternal light
     Or the light that never warms
     Or the light that never, never warms
     Or the light that never, never, never, never, never warms
     The clock strikes twelve and moondrops burst
     Out at you from their hiding place
     Miss Carrie Nurse and Susie dear
     Find themselves at Four Winds Bar
     It's the nexus of the crisis
     And the origin of storms
     Just the place to hopelessly
     Encounter time and then came me
     Hey - hey hey!
     Hey - hey hey!
     Hey - hey hey!
     Hey - hey hey!
     Call me Desdinova
     Eternal light
     These gravely digs of mine
     Will surely prove a sight
     And don't forget my dog
     Fixed and consequent
     Astronomy - a star
     Astronomy - a star

     As I was goin' over the Cork and Kerry mountains
     I saw Captain Farrell and his money he was countin'
     I first produced my pistol and then produced my rapier
     I said stand and deliver or the devil he may take ya
     I took all of his money and it was a pretty penny
     I took all of his money and I brought it home to Molly

     Being drunk and weary I went to Molly's chamber
     Takin' my money with me and I never knew the danger
     For about six or maybe seven in walked Captain Farrell
     I jumped up, fired off my pistols and I shot him with both barrels
     Now some men like the fishin' and some men like the fowlin'
     And some men like ta hear a cannon ball a roarin'
     Me I like sleepin' specially in my Molly's chamber
     But here I am in prison, here I am with a ball and chain yeah



     Train roll on, on down the line
     Won't you please take me far away
     Now, I feel the wind blow outside my door
     I leave my woman at home
     Tuesday's gone with the wind
     My baby's gone with the wind
     And I don't know oh where I'm going
     I just want to be left alone
     When this train ends, I'll try again
     I leave my woman at home

     Tuesday's gone with the wind
     Tuesday's gone with the wind
     My baby's gone with the wind

     Train roll on, many miles from my home

     Tuesday, you see, she had to be free
     But somehow, I've got to carry on
     Tuesday's gone with the wind
     Tuesday's gone with the wind
     Tuesday's gone with the wind
     My baby's gone with the wind



     From where I stand I see
     Pain suffering and misery
     The more I see the more I see
     The less the less I believe
     From where I stand I see
     Hate violence and war
     The more I see the more I see
     The less the less I believe



















     I gotta see you moving fast
     See you come my way
     See the dreams, I hope they last
     Never fade away.
     Gotta see the lights above

     I can see the flashing lights
     Lit before your love, oh
     Gotta hear the thunder roar
     Coming from above.
     See the flashing lights
     Hear the thunder roar
     I'm gonna set you all alight

     I can see the stars
     I can see what's going on
     Every night alone
     I sing my song just for fun.
     Only time will tell
     If I'll make it myself someday
     This stage is mine
     Music is my destiny.
     Cannot squeeze the life from me!
     I can see the lights
     But I can see what's going on
     Every night alone
     I sing my song just for fun.
     Business in collapse
     Some men don't like it so
     Helpless maybe babe,
     But you can leave or join the show.
     Cannot squeeze the life from me!



     Look out at the darkness,
     And you will see,
     Just call my name and I'll be there.
     You cannot touch me,
     You would not dare,
     I am the chill that's in the air.
     And I try to get through to you,
     In my own special way,
     As the barriers crumble,
     At the end of the day.
     Dark rivers are flowing,
     Back into the past,
     You are the fish for which I cast.
     And what of the future,
     What is to be,
     As the rivers flow into the sea.
     And I try to get through to you,
     In my own special way,
     As the barriers crumble,
     At the end of the day.
     Do not take for granted,
     Powers out there,
     Don't step into the demon's lair.
     Time is an illusion,
     Rising from time,
     Steep is the mountain which we climb.




     Motives changing
     Day to day
     The fire increases
     Masks decay

     After awakening
     The silence grows
     The screams subside
     Distortion shows
     Mutant thoughts
     Of bad mouthed news
     Just another birth
     Of distorted views
     The wait
     The wait
     The wait
     The wait



     Look inside and you will see
     The words are cutting deep inside my brain
     Thunder burnin' quickly burning
     Knife of words is driving me insane, insane yeah
     Raven black is on my track
     He shows me how to neutralize the knife
     Show to me in surgery
     The art of fighting words to conquer life, conquer life yeah
     Now the wicked lance of fear
     Is driven from my heady mountain brain
     Crash course in brain surgery
     Has stopped the bloody knife of words
     again yeah, yeah, yeah

     Never, never gonna lose it
     Breadfan
     Take it all away
     Never give an inch
     Gotta make a mint
     Gotta make me a million
     Breadfan
     You got it wrong
     Some long time friend's gonna lose it
     In the end who's a fool
     Seagull
     Give it all away
     Stay a bird
     Stay a man
     Stay a ghost
     Stay what you wanna be
     Loser

     Never stay with the winner
     With the man
     With all the filthy money
     Come on
     Keep it on the side
     With a ride
     On a record on the top
     If you're gonna be a bad boy
     Breadfan
     You got it wrong
     Some long time friend's gonna lose it
     In the end who's a fool
     Seagull
     Give it all away
     Stay a bird
     Stay a man
     Stay a ghost
     Stay what you wanna be



     Now I see his face, I see his smile
     Such a lonely place, no golden mile
     Eyes tell of morbid tales of his black heart
     His deeds through ages past tell of his part
     See his face, see his smile
     Time to die
     Angel from below, change my dreams
     I want for glory's hour, for wealth's esteem
     I wish to sell my soul, to be reborn
     I wish for earthly riches, don't want no crown of thorns
     See his face, see his smile
     Time to die
     I was born a fool, don't want to stay that way
     Devil take my soul, with diamonds you repay
     I don't care for heaven, so don't you look for me
     to cry
     And I will burn in hell, from the day I die
     See his face, see his smile
     Time to die



     Sleeping very soundly on a Saturday morning
     I was dreaming I was Al Capone
     Rumor going round, gotta clear out of town,
     Smelling like a dry fish bone
     Here come the law, gonna break down the door,
     Gonna carry me away once more
     Never, never
     Never want it anymore
     Gotta get away from this stone cold floor
     Crazy, stone cold crazy, you know!
     Rainy afternoon, on a killer typhoon
     And I'm playing with my slide trombone
     Anymore, anymore
     Cannot take it anymore
     Gotta get away from this stone cold floor
     Crazy, stone cold crazy, you know!
     Walking down the street, shooting people that I meet,
     Bullet loaded tommy gun
     Here come the deputy
     Try fuckin' gettin' me
     Gotta fuckin' get up and run
     They got the sirens lose,
     I'm running out of juice
     They're gonna put me in a cell
     If I can't go to heaven, let me go to hell
     Crazy, stone cold crazy, you know

     The sound of gunfire goes through the night
     The killing and hatred's a terrible sight
     Reports come in of a heavy attack
     Message received, we're moving back
     Preparations are made for the journey back
     Hints on survival, supplies are packed
     No more nights in this eternal hall
     Destination is simple, we move out
     Killing time, your life's on the line
     Killing time, your turn to kill
     Killing time, what'd ya say?
     Killing time, ah killing time
     Ingenuity needed to keep us alive
     No time for cowardice, kill & survive
     Like a killer kid with a switchblade knife
     Nasty word, he'll take your life
     The silence is over the attack again
     The killing & hatred, drive me insane
     Reports come in of a savage attack
     Message received, we're moving back



     Only way to feel the noise
     Is when it's good and loud
     So good I can't believe it
     Screaming with the crowd
     Don't sweat it, give it back to you
     Don't sweat it, give it back to you
     Overkill, overkill, overkill
     Shut up
     On your feet you feel the beat
     Go straight through your spine
     Shake your head you must be dead
     If it don't make you blind
     Don't sweat it, give it back to you
     Don't sweat it, give it back to you
     Overkill, overkill, overkill
     Get the fuck down!
     Know your body's made to move
     You feel it in your guts
     Rock 'n' roll ain't worth the name
     If it don't make you strut
     Don't sweat it, give it back to you
     Don't sweat it, give it back to you
     Overkill, overkill, overkill
     Get on it!



     Hey babe, don't act so scared
     All I want is some special care
     I don't belong in some institution
     All I want's a little consolation
     But I can tell by your face
     I'm a total disgrace
     Let me inside of your place
     Move over for a damage case
     Hey babe, wait a minute stop
     Don't run away, don't call a cop
     I ain't looking to victimise you
     All I wanna do is tantalise you
     But I can tell by your face
     I'm all over the place
     I can tell by your face
     Got no time for a damage case
     Hey babe don't turn away
     I'm here tomorrow, I'm gone today
     I don't know what you think your game is
     I don't care even what your name is
     But I could tell by his face
     You were over his place
     Let me inside of your space
     Move over for a damage case



     Well I think you see me, in the glass
     And I think you hear me, you better listen fast
     I think I see you gone to seed
     And the only reasons were your guilt and greed
     You're out there on your own
     Your face turned to stone
     Whatever happened to your life
     Stone dead forever
     You're a natural wizard, you you're just a ghoul
     You're a sweet long lizard, with a silver spoon
     You ain't never had it, quite so good
     But you didn't know that you really could
     You're outside in the cold
     You're touch has turned to gold
     Whatever happened to your life
     Stone dead forever
     It's been a long time, been a long, long wait
     And now you got your fingers on the pearly gates
     You better leave your number and we'll call you
     Do you know your problems ain't exactly new
     But your time has come today
     Turned you to feeling grey
     Whatever happened to your life
     Stone dead forever




     I see that nothing's changed
     Insist on playing games
     Some waste of time you are
     And you're so popular
     Well this is it you bitch
     I got a make my switch
     You find some other
     JohnI know what's goin' on
     Your move, what do I have to lose
     Stalemate, too late, too late
     I thought you were for real
     Just one more rip-off deal
     Don't give me all that crap
     I just escaped your trap
     You think you see the joke
     But you're just chasin' smoke'
     Cause now the thrill is gone
     I know what's goin' on
     Your move, what do I have to lose
     Stalemate, too late, too late
     Misunderstanding me
     The way you felt so free
     I'm gonna jump the gun
     I'm gonna hit and run
     Your credibility
     Don't cut no ice with me
     You're just a feeble con
     I know what's goin' on
     Your move, what do I have to lose
     Stalemate, too late, too late

Net zhizni bez kozhanki
Segodnya vecherom my nadaem komu-to pinkov
My prinosim metallicheskoe bezumie
Kogda fany nachinayut vopit'
|to, pravo, ochen' zdorovo
Kogda my nachinaem delat' rok
My uzhe ne ostanovimsya

 Vrubite svet
 Vrubite svet
 Vrubite svet

Ty znaesh', nashi fany bezumny
My raznesem eto mesto gromkost'yu
Bol'shej, chem chtoby to ni bylo
Segodnya odin put'
Kogda my nachinaem delat' rok
My uzhe nikogda ne ostanovimsya

Vmeste so vsemi vopyashchimi
My budem prorezat' skvoz' tvoj mozg
My nesem smertonosnuyu silu
Ona prichinyaet tebe sladkuyu bol'
O, sladkaya bol'
Kogda my nachinaem delat' rok
My nikogda uzhe ne ostanovimsya




Na poslednem izdyhanii duyut chetyre vetra
Luchshe navostri svoi ushi
Zvuk stuka kopyt u tvoih dverej
Zapri svoyu zhenu i detej
Vremya slovno lezvie
Ibo ty sejchas stolknulsya s kakoj-to kompaniej

 Vsadniki priblizhayutsya
 Oni skachut na odetyh v kozhu konyah
 Oni idut chtoby vzyat' tvoyu zhizn'
 CHerez glubokuyu noch'
 Skachi s chetyr'mya vsadnikami
 Ili vyberi sebe sud'bu i umri

Ty byl mertv s togo dnya, kak byl rozhden
Ty znaesh', chto vse eto bylo zaplanirovano
CHetverka izbavitelej skachet
Sogreshivshij raz, sogreshit dvazhdy
Sejchas net nuzhdy v ispovedi
Ibo sejchas ty dolzhen borot'sya za svoyu zhizn'
Vremya vzyalo s tebya etu poshlinu
Treshchiny idut po tvoemu licu
Golod
Tvoe telo razorvano imi, povsyudu
|pidemiya, osushivshaya vse
Radi chego ty teper' ?
I chto eshche ty delal, risuya zhizn' ?
|to tvoe izbavlenie, bud' uveren
Ty nichego ne smozhesh' sdelat'
Sejchas vokrug tebe skoplenie molodyh voinov
Sedlajte svoih konej
Smertonosnye zarubki demonskih mechej
|to smert' delavshego vse nepravil'no
Razmah karayushchego molota
Bezopasnost' vnutri broni dlya potrohov i krovi




ZHivushchie i umirayushchie, smeyushchiesya i plachushchie
Odnazhdy uvidav eto, ty ne ostanesh'sya prezhnij
Bystro proletayushchaya zhizn', kak kazhetsya prosta
Trudna, tyazhela, gryazna i podla

 Motodyhanie
 |to kak ya prozhivayu svoyu zhizn'
 YA ne mogu najti etogo na drugom puti
 Motodyhanie
 Znak skorotechnoj zhizni
 |to dolzhno zahvatit' tvoe dyhanie

Ni za chto ne ostanavlivajsya, eto polno skorosti
YA perekrichal tebya, znaj, vse na tvoem puti
Stanovitsya otdachej
Kogda ty nesesh'sya po pryamoj
Rastryasayushchej tvoyu spinu

Te lyudi, chto sovetuyut tebe ne pol'zovat'sya shansom
Oni vse poteryany v zhizni vokrug tebya
SHans byvaet raz v zhizni
Ne konchaj, kak drugie, pesnyami i tancami




V glubinu moego sozhzhennogo doma
Zazyvayut udary kolokola
Soblaznyaya tebya i vseh lyudej
Ob®edinit' nashu greshnuyu porodu
"|to zadanie dolzhno byt' vypolneno
I imenno mnoj
Vy, lyudi, pomozhete mne sdelat' eto
Sejchas vremya vashego roka, i ya ne hochu kolebat'sya
Zatyanu vas v etu yamu

 Tak nastupaj
 Prygni v ogon'
 Tak nastupaj
 Prygni v ogon'

S Adom v moih glazah, so smert'yu v moih venah
Konec nastupaet
Vskormlennyj chelovecheskimi umami
Iz glubiny ih dush
Moi ucheniki vse krichat, ishchut snaruzhi
I oni vsegda budut slushat'sya
Sleduj za mnoj, ditya moe
No ne bud' pokornym ili myagkim
Prosto delaj vse, kak ya govoryu

Soberi volyu, chtoby prygnut', ili budesh' vzyat siloj
YA dam tebe druguyu vozmozhnost'
Starajsya uderzhat' svet adskogo ognya
YA podkradyvayus' k tebe, kak zhertve
Prozhivaj svoyu zhizn', kak ya, ya tebya vizhu
CHast' menya est' v kazhdom
Tak osvobodis' ot hvatki moih ruk
Idi so mnoj cherez zemli
Vernis' domoj, gde ty prodolzhish'




|toj noch'yu vse gotovo
I ty idesh' posmotret' shou
My prinesem tebe more schast'ya
Ty ispytaesh' eto na sebe
Poka chuvstva gluboko vnutri
|to privodit tebya v chertovoe sumasshestvie
CHuvstva tupicy perepolnyayut golovu
Ty stremish'sya i eto ploho

 Adrenalin nachinaet bryzgat'
 Ty treshuesh' povsyudu
 Tryasesh'sya, kak man'yak
 Neugomonnyj

Tryasi svoej bashkoj naprotiv sceny
Kak ty nikogda ne delal
Kruzhis', prygaj
Kak bol'noj
V yarostnom bezumii
Odety v kozhu s shipami
Golovy tryasutsya vokrug
|to uzhas! |to nochnoj AD

Zdes' na scene shum "Marshall"
Razdirayushchij grohotom tvoi ushi
|to privodit tebya v "taski"
Ryadom grohochushchie zvuki
Da, podhodyashchee vremya razorvat'
Vse eti chertovy neudachi
My sobralis' zdes', chtoby rasterzat' i ubit'
|to nevsegda, to, chto my vybrali

Koncert zakonchilsya, metall issyak
|to potomu, chto my vsegda edem po doroge
Na drugoj koncert, v drugoj gorod
I opyat' my budem razryvat'sya
Komnaty otelya i shosse
ZHizn' idet, zdes', zdes' - syrost'
No my ne ostanovimsya i ne proigraem
Potomu chto my METALLICA




Zvuk prorezaetsya cherez tvoi ushi
Oglushayushchij zvuk metalla priblizhaetsya
Vashi tela ozhidayut ego podhlestyvanie
Vkus kozhi na vashih gubah

 Uslyhajte boevogo klich
 Bolee gromkij, chem ran'she
 So svoim mechom v ruke
 Upravlyat' zemlyami
 Sokrushayushchie udary metalla
 V etu uzhasnuyu noch'
 Padajte na svoi koleni
 Pered prizrakom - povelitelem

ZHertvy padayut pod tyazhest'yu cepej
Vy slyshite ih umirayushchij plach boli
Kulak terrora probivaet vse
Vy nichego uzhe ne smozhete sdelat'

Odeta v kozhu armiya vostorzhestvovala
Prizrak - povelitel' nikogda ne terpel porazhenij
Dym podnimaetsya iz zemli
Gromkost' zvuka metalla vozrastaet
Padajte na svoi koleni
I klanyajtes' prizraku - pobeditelyu




My besposhchadny v nashih delah
Nas ne poseshchayut mysli o sovershenstve
My ne zhelaem chuvstvovat' skorb'
Net zhalosti k bespomoshchnomu

 Vojna bez konca
 Net sozhaleniya i net raskayaniya
 Nam po huyu takie ponyatiya
 S kazhdym dnem novaya smert'
 Eshche odna pechal', eshche odin vozduh

Krov' pitaet mashinu vojny
Kogda ona pozhiraet vse na svoem puti
Dvigayas' cherez zemli
My ne zhelaem chuvstvovat' skorbi
Prikaz odin : "Net sozhaleniya"

Tol'ko sil'nye vyzhivayut
I nikto ne spaset slabuyu rasu
My gotovy ubit' vseh prishel'cev
Podobno tomu, kak zarazhennaya vintovka
Gotova raznesti tvoe lico

Vojna
Puli letyat. Lyudi umirayut. Vokrug Ad i bezumie
Soldaty ohotyatsya drug za drugom
Vozvyshayutsya gory trupov
Orudiya strelyayut do samorazrusheniya
S hodom voennoj mashiny
Krov' nachinaet lit'sya
Net poshchady - pust' slyshit kazhdyj
YArostnoe srazhenie
V kotorom mechi podobny molniyam
|to dolzhno vselit' v tebe rzhach
Znaj, smert' blizka
Net sozhaleniya




My prochesyvaem vechernij gorod
My ishchem tebya, chtoby nachat' bor'bu
Zlye chuvstva v nashih mozgah
No net novogo vokrug - ty znaesh'
|to vlechet nas s sumasshestviyu

 Begi po svoemu puti
 Skryvajsya, ty zaplatish'
 Umri tysyach'yu smertej
 My ishchem, ishchem i unichtozhaem

Ubezhat' nevozmozhno, bud' uveren
Nam mnogo ne nado
Skazhi "Do svidaniya" miru v kotorom zhil
Ty vsegda bral sebe slishkom mnogo
Nashi mozgi goryat i zhazhdut ubijstv
I ot etogo nikuda ne det'sya
Poka mechty ne ispolnyayutsya
I ne pytajsya bezhat'
Ibo ty tot, kogo my najdem
Grom i molnii bogov, tvoryashchih vozmezdie
Bessmyslennye razrusheniya
ZHertvy yarosti ubegayut v poiskah spaseniya
Oni truslivy teper'
Prodazhnaya zhenshchina, zabyvshaya nenavist'
Platit za svoi grehi, umiraya pod udarami nozha
Vskrytye i razorvannye veny

 Skvoz' tuman i bezumie
 My pytaemsya donesti
 Svoyu missiyu do tebya
 Metallicheskoe opolchenie

Odin i odna tysyacha
Vo mrake, skovany cepyami i pokinuty
Metallicheskoe opolchenie, soldaty
Odety v stal', pomogut prinesti tebe zhertvu
Ob®edinyajtes', ili budete zahvacheny
|to zakon zemli. I eto mozhet sluchit'sya s toboj
Proishodit metallizaciya tvoej dushi
My vse, kak odin, nesmotrya ni na chto
Srazhaemsya po odnoj prichine
Kozha i stal' - nasha forma
Pokrovitel'stvuet nam
Soedinyayas' dlya zahvata mira
Nashim tyazhelym metallom
My nesem nashu missiyu povsyudu, gde my est'
Idi vmeste s nami







Delaj s drugimi tozhe, chto oni delali s toboj
No k kakomu Adu pridet etot mir?
Vzorvi vselennuyu v nebytie
YAdernaya vojna ulozhit nas k mertvecam

    Bor'ba ognya s ognem
    Konec blizok
    Bor'ba ognya s ognem
    Vzorvis'ş strahom

My vse umrem
Vremya kak fitil' - korotkoe i bystrogoryashchee
Armageddon zdes', kak skazan- v proshlom
Skoro nashi legkie napolnyatsya goryachimi vetrami smerti
Bogi smeyutsya zabiraya tvoj poslednij vzdoh




Vinoven kak obremenennyj
No proklinayu eto, eto nepravda
Zdes' kto-to drugoj upravlyaet mnoj
Smert' v vozduhe
Styanut na elektricheskom stule
|to ne mozhet sluchitsya so mnoj
Kto zastavil tebya, Bog, tak skazat'
"YA voz'mu u tebya zhizn'"

    Vspyshka pered moimi glazami
    Nastalo vremya umirat'
    Szhigaetsya moj mozg
    YA mogu chuvstvovat' plamya

Ozhidanie znaka
Ebya knutom smerti
|to nachalo konca
Isparina, ohlazhdayushchaya morozom
Tak ya uvidel ob®yatiya smerti
Tol'ko soznanie - moj drug
Moi pal'cy szhimayutsya ot strah-
CHto ya zdes' delayu?

Kto-nibud', pomogite mne
O, bozhe, pozhalujsta, pomogi mne
Oni pytayutsya otobrat' vse eto
YA ne hochu umirat'

Vremya dvizhetsya medlenno
Minuty kazhutsya chasami
YA vizhu final'nuyu scenu
Neuzheli eto pravda?
|to  konchaetsya
Esli eto pravda< pust' ona vershitsya
Probuzhdennyj uzhasnym krikom
Osvobozhdayus' iz etogo pugayushchego sna




Zastav' ego srazhat'sya na holme rannim utrom
Postoyannyj golod gluboko vnutri
Govorit oruzhie, na begu skvoz' beskonechnuyu serost'
Oni srazhayutsya za svoi prava, no kto im eto skazal?
Radi vozvysheniya oni ubivali, pochemu? Oni ne znayut
Obida proverena ih ozhestochennoj gordost'yu
Pyat' muzhchin eshche zhivy v etom yarostnom nakale
Shodya s uma ot boli kotoruyu oni nepremenno poznayut

    Po komu zvonit kolokol
    Vremya idet vpered
    Po komu zvonit kolokol

Obratit' svoj vzglyad na nebo tol'ko pered smert'yu
|to ego poslednee zhelanie
Priglushennyj no moshchnyj shum napolnyaet nebo
Porazhennye celi napolnyayut ego dushu bezzhalostnym plachem
Ego glazam neznakoma beda, poetomu on tak gromko slyshit bezmolvie
Velikolepnyj rassvet, no vse ushlo, krome zhelaniya zhit'
Teper' oni uvidyat, chto ih glaza byli slepy




ZHizn', kazhetsya, ugasaet
Plyvya vse dal'she kazhdyj den'
Teryaetsya dlya menya
Nikakih del, nichego drugogo
YA poteryal interes k zhizni
Prosto nichego ne daetsya
Zdes' dlya menya nichego net
Nuzhdayus' v konce, kotoryj osvobodit menya
Veshchi ne byvshie v upotreblenii
Otsutstvuyut vnutri menya
Smertel'naya poterya, eto ne mozhet byt' real'nost'yu
Ne mogu vystoyat' Ad kotoryj chuvstvuyu
Pustota napolnyaet menya
V moment agonii
Rastet predrassvetnyj mrak
YA byl mnoyu, teper' on ushel
Nichto ne mozhet spasti menya, teper' uzhe pozdno
Teper' ya ne mogu dumat', pochemu ya ochishchus'
Kak i vchera, ya kazhetsya nikogda ne sushchestvoval
Smert' teplo menya privetstvuet, teper' ya skazhu "Do svidaniya"




YA ne znayu kak perezhit' etot Ad
Prosnuvshis', ya poka zapert v etoj obolochke
Zamerzla dusha, promerzla do osnovaniya
Slomaj led, ya nichego ne mogu podelat'

    Zamerzayu
    YA ne mogu dvinut'sya
    Krichu
    Net vozmozhnosti uslyshat' moj zov
    YA umirayu zazhivo
    Vykrikivayu
    YA pojman podo l'dom

Kristallizovannyj, ya lezhu zdes' v pokoe
Steklyannye glaza smotryat pryamo na smert'
YA vyrvalsya iz glubiny sna
No nikto ne znaet, nikto ne slyshal, chto ya skazal
Krik iz moej dushi
Sud'ba vvedennaya v zabluzhdenie
Ad vsegda v preimushchestve
Net osvobozhdeniya iz moego sostoyaniya
CHto eto? YA porazhen sud'boj
Plotno ukutannyj, bez vozmozhnosti dvigat'sya
Ne mogu vyrvat'sya na svobodu
Ruki sud'by plotno obhvatili menya




Net chuvstva boli, no moya zhizn' nelegka
YA znayu, chto ya - moj luchshij drug
Nikto ne obespokoen, chto ya bolee silen
YA budu srazhat'sya do konca
Bezhat' i fal'shivogo mira
Bezvrednaya sud'ba

    Vne menya samogo, vne moej svobody
    Naedine s moim razumom, oni ne mogut videt'
    Net nadobnosti slushat' veshchi, kotorye oni govoryat
    ZHizn' - eto dlya menya, zhivushchego svoej zhizn'yu

Nasiluya moj razum i unichtozhaya moi chuvstva
Ne govori mne, chto delat'
YA ne bespokoyus' sejchas potomu, chto ya na svoej storone
I ya mogu videt' tebya naskvoz'
Esh' moj mozg svoimi, tak nazyvaemymi, normami
Kto skazal, chto ya ne prav
Ubegaya iz vashih obshchih privychek
Smotrya skvoz' vas porochnym vzglyadom
Smotri oni sobirayutsya opustit' molot vniz
Net cepej, mogushchih privyazat' menya k zemle

Oni shepchutsya u menya v mozgah i
Ubezhdayut menya v sobstvennom pomeshatel'stve
ONI dumayut, chto podchinili nas
No nasil'e rozhdaet krovavye plany
Derzhite ego svyazannym, emu eto polezno

Im bol'she ne udastsya podchinit' nas
Slushajte, proklyatye, pobeda za nami
Im kazhetsya, chto nam luchshe, chto my vyzdoravlivaem
I oni dumayut, chto ih lechenie spas¤t nas ot
Nashego Ada

Lyudi stali nepronicaemymi

Podrazumevaet edinstvennuyu dorogu

Oni pretendovali na zvanie soldat, no oni imi ne byli
Oslepl¤nnye, oni begali po polyam ubijstv

 Voyaka - paren', on sdelan iz gliny
 Vojna opustoshila ego

Molis' syn moj
I ne zabud' proiznesti vse molitvy
Kotorye ty znaesh'
Oni pomogut tebe
I budut oberegat' ot greha ...
Poka ne poyavitsya dr¤ma
 Odin glaz spit, drugoj - otkryt
 Krepche sozhmi podushku v rukah

  Vyhodit svet
  Vhodit noch'

  Voz'mi menya za ruku
  My otpravlyaemsya v stranu chudes

CHto-to sluchilos': Svet ischez
Tyazh¤lye ch¤rnye mysli napolnyayut golovu
Sny o vojnah, lgunah
O drakonah, izvergayushchih plamya
O sushchestvah s uzhasnymi zubami

Za moej dushoj, esli ya umru vo sne
Pust' on vzmet e¤ sebe

Pritaivshiesya v tualete
Pod krovat'yu i v tvoej golove

Kazhdyj novyj reb¤nok

On ustal i nikomu net do nego dela
On uzhe starik i gotov umeret'
Raskayavshis' v svoih grehah

Gordis' svoim vyborom
Gordis' svoimi chuvstvami
Gordis' tem, chto ty oshchushchaesh'

Ne te slova, ne ta lyubov'
Ne tak, kak ty predstavlyal

Takoj obeskurazhivayushchej lzhi
YA slyshu veru v tvoih krikah
Obeshchaniya predatel'ski narushayutsya
Izlechivayushchie ruki pribity gvozdyami
Sleduyushchij za bogom, ne opravdavshij nadezhd

Najdi svoj pokoj, najdi svo¤ mnenie
Najdi gladkuyu dorogu na svo¤m puti
Doveryaj berushchim, rasti detej
A Ego i svoi mol'by zakopaj poglubzhe




Ty vsego lish' stoish' zdes' i noesh'
I boish'sya, chto nikto tebya ne slushaet
Oni govoryat, chto tvoi rechi  pusty

No zvuk sobstvennogo golosa

Ty slyshish' tol'ko to, chto hochesh' slyshat'
I znaesh' tol'ko to, chto uslyshal
Ty polon tragizma, no ty
Ne sredi teh, kto hochet sohranit' mir

Stradanie,

Hochu napomnit': to, chto yavlyaetsya

Mozhet obernut'sya adom dlya drugogo
Prishli vremena ispytanij
No chto-to est' strannoe v tom
CHto ty vidish'
Ty voz'm¤sh' vs¤ na sebya
Pomni: Stradanie lyubit kompaniyu
Ty vsego lish' stoish' zdes' i noesh'
Moj drug stradanij




Vozvrashchayus' za tem, chto ty chuvstvoval
Ty hvataesh'sya za to, chto po tvoemu real'no
Tebe nravitsya podst¤givat' m¤rtvuyu loshad'
Ty ne mozhesh' vyrazit' svoyu blagodarnost'
Sushchestvuet ochen' mnogo veshchej, kotorymi ty
Ne hochesh' zanyat'sya, chto s toboj sluchilos' ?
 CHto ty poteryal

 CHto ty sobiraesh'sya najti

 Vnutrennyaya bor'ba

 Vnutrennyaya bor'ba
 Ty bezhish'
 Vnutrennyaya bor'ba
 Ty zapechatyvaesh' svoj grob
 Vnutrennyaya bor'ba
 Ty srazhaesh'sya sam s soboj

Tvoj dom stal Adom
On prevratilsya v odinochnuyu kameru
Ty bezvozvratno poteryal vse vygody
Tvoego sushchestvovaniya, srazhayas'
V sobstvennom Adu
Blyuya
Hvatayas' za ostatki chuvstv
Zakryvayas'
Davlenie na tebya ves'ma real'no

No life till leather
We are gonna kick some ass tonight
We got the metal madness
When our fans start screaming
It's right well alright
When we start to rock
We never want to stop again

        Hit the Lights
        Hit the Lights
        Hit the Lights

You know our fans are insane
We are gonna blow this place away
With volume higher
Than anything today the only way
When we start to rock
We never want to stop again

        Hit the Lights
        Hit the Lights
        Hit the Lights

With all out screaming
We are gonna rip right through your brain
We got the lethal power
It is causing you sweet pain oh sweet pain
When we start to rock
We never want to stop again

        Hit the Lights
        Hit the Lights
        Hit the Lights



       (J.Hetfield, L.Ulrich, D.Mustaine)

By the last breath of the fourth winds blow
Better raise your ears
The sound of hooves knock at your door
Lock up your wife and children now
It's time to wield the blade
For now you have got some company

        The horsemen are drawing nearer
        On the leather steeds they ride
        They have came to take your life
        On through the dead of night
        With the four horsemen ride
        Or choose your fate and die



You have been dying since the day
You were born
You know it has all been planned
The quartet of deliverance rides
A sinner once a sinner twice
No need for confession now
Cause now you have got the fight of your life

The horsemen are drawing nearer
On the leather steeds they ride
They have came to take your life
On through the dead of night
With the four horsemen ride
Or choose your fate and die

Time
Has taken it's toll on you
The lines that crack your face
Famine
Your body it has torn through
Withered in every place
Pestilence
For what you have had to endure
And what you have put others through
Death
Deliverance for you for sure
There is nothing you can do

So gather round young warriors now
And saddle up your steeds
Killing scores with demons swords
Now is the death of doers of wrong
Swing the judgement hammer down
Safely inside armor blood guts and sweat

The horsemen are drawing nearer
On the leather steeds they ride
They have came to take your life
On through the dead of night
With the four horsemen ride
Or choose your fate and die



          (J.Hetfield)

Living and dying laughing and crying
Once you have seen it you will never
  be the same
Life in the fast lane is just how it seems
Hard and it is heavy dirty and mean

Motorbreath
Its how I live my life
I can't take it any other way
Motorbreath
The sign of living fast
It is going to take
Your breath away


Don't stop for nothing it's full speed
  or nothing
I am talking down you know whatever is
  in my way
Getting your kicks as you are shooting
  the line
Sending the shivers up and down your spine

Motorbreath
Its how I live my life
I can't take it any other way
Motorbreath
The sign of living fast
It is going to take
Your breath away

Those people who tell you not to take chances
They are all missing on what life is about
You only live once so take hold of the chance
Don't end up like others the same song and dance

Motorbreath
It's how I live my life
I can't take it any other way
Motorbreath
The sign of living fast
It is going to take
Your breath away



       (J.Hetfield, L.Ulrich, D.Mustaine)

Down in the depths of my firey home
The summons bell will chime
Tempting you and all the earth
To join own sinful kid
There is a job to be done and I'm the one
You people make me do it
Now it is time for your fate and I won't hesitate
To pull you down into this pit

So come on
Jump in the Fire
So come on
Jump in the Fire

With hell in my eyes and death in my veins
The end closing in
Feeding on the minds of man
And from their souls within
My disciples all shout to search out
And they always shall obey
Follow me now my child not the meek or the mild
But do just as I say

So come on
Jump in the Fire
So come on
Jump in the Fire

Jump by your will or be taken by force
I'll get you either way
Trying to keep the hellfire lit
I am stalking your as prey
Living your life as me I am you you see
There is part of me in everyone
So reach down grab my hand walk with me through
  the land
Come home where you belong

So come on
Jump in the Fire
So come on
Jump in the Fire


     (J.Hetfield, L.Ulrich)

Late at night all systems go
You have come to see the show
We do our best you're the rest
You make it real you know
There is a feeling deep inside
That drives you fuckin' mad
A feeling of a hammerhead
You need it oh so bad

        Adrenalin starts to flow
        You're thrashing all around
        Acting like a maniac
        Whiplash

Bang your head against the stage
Like you never did before
Make it ring make it bleed
Make it really sore
In a frenzied madness
With your leathers and your spikes
Heads are bobbing around
It is hot as hell tonite

        Adrenalin starts to flow
        You're thrashing all around
        Acting like a maniac
        Whiplash

Here on stage the Marshall noise
Is piercing through your ears
It kicks you ass kick your face
Exploding feeling nears
Now is the time to let it rip
To let it fuckin' loose
We are gathered here to maim and kill
Cause this is what we choose

        Adrenalin starts to flow
        You're thrashing all around
        Acting like a maniac
        Whiplash

The show is through the metal is gone
It is time to hit the road
Another town another gig
Again we will explode
Hotel rooms and motorways
Life out here is raw
But we will never stop
We will never quit
Cause we are METALLICA

        Adrenalin starts to flow
        You're thrashing all around
        Acting like a maniac
        Whiplash


       (J.Hetfield, L.Ulrich, D.Mustaine)

Sound is ripping through your ears
The deafening sound of metal nears
Your bodies waiting for his whips
The taste of leather on your lips

Hear the cry of war
Louder than before
With his sword in hand
To control the land
Crushing metal strikes
On this frightening night
Fall onto your knees
For the Phantom Lord

Victims falling under chains
You hear them crying dying pains
The fist of terrors breaking through
Now there is nothing you can do

Hear the cry of war
Louder than before
With his sword in hand
To control the land
Crushing metal strikes
On this frightening night
Fall onto your knees
For the Phantom Lord

The leathered armies have prevailed
The Phantom Lord has never failed
Smoke is lifting from the ground
The rising volume metal sound

(Chorus)

Fall to your knees
And bow to the Phantom Lord


     (J.Hetfield, L.Ulrich)

No mercy for what we are doing
No thought to even what we have done
We don't need to feel to sorrow
No remorse for the helpless one

War without end
No remorse no repent
We don't care what it meant
Another day another death
Another sorrow another breath
No remorse no repent
We don't care what it meant
Another day another death
Another sorrow another breath

Blood feeds the war machine
As it eats its way across the land
We don't need to feel the sorrow
No remorse is the one command

(Chorus)

Only the strong survive
No will to save the weaker race
We are ready to kill all comers
Like a loaded gun right at your face

(Chorus)

Attack
Bullets are flying
People are dying
  With madness surrounding all hell's
  Breaking loose
Soldiers are hounding
Bodies are mounting
  Cannons are shouting to take their abuse
With war machines going
Blood starts to flowing
No mercy given to anyone hear
The furious fighting
Swords are like lightning
It all becomes frightening you
Know death is near
No remorse



     (J.Hetfield, L.Ulrich)

We are scanning the scene
In the city tonite
We are looking for you
To start up a fight
There is an evil feeling
In our brains
But it is nothing new
You know it drives us insane

Running
On our way
Hiding
You will pay
Dying
On thousand deaths
Running
On our way
Hiding
You will pay
Dying
One thousand deaths
Searching
Seek and Destroy
Searching
Seek and Destroy
Searching
Seek and Destroy
Searching
Seek and Destroy

There is no escape
And that is for sure
To the every world
We won't take any more
Say goodbye
To the world you live in
You have always been taking
But now you giving

(Chorus)

Our brains are on fire
With the feeling to kill
And it will not go away
Until our dreams are fulfilled
There is only one thing
On our minds
Don't try running away
Cause you're the one we will find

(Chorus)




       (J.Hetfield, L.Ulrich, D.Mustaine)

Thunder and lightning the gods
  Take revenge
Senseless destruction
Victims of fury and cowardly now
Running for safety
Stabbing the harlot to pay for her sins
Leaving the Virgin
Suicide running as if it were free
Ripping and tearing

Oh through the mist and the madness
We are trying to get the message to you
Metal Militia
Metal Militia
Metal Militia

Chained and shadowed to be lift behind
Nine and one thousand
Metal Militia for your sacrifice
Iron clad soldiers
Join or be conquered the law of the land
What will befall you
The Metalization of your inner soul
Twisting and turning

(Chorus)

We are as one as we all are the same
Fighting for one cause
Leather and metal are our uniforms
Protecting what we are
Joining together to take on the world
With our heavy metal
Spreading the message to everyone here
Come let yourself go

(Chorus)




               Text by Ile 30/10/87



    (Hetfield, Ulrich, Burton)

Do unto others as they have done to you
But what the hell is this world coming to?

Blow the universe into nothingness
Nuclear warfare shall lay us to rest

 Fight fire with fire
 Ending is near
 Fight fire with fire
 Bursting with fear

  We all shall die

Time is like a fuse, short and burning fast
Armageddon is here, like said in the past

 Fight fire with fire
 Ending is near
 Fight fire with fire
 Bursting with fear

Soon to fill our lungs the hot winds of death
The gods are laughing, so take your last breath

 Fight fire with fire
 Ending is near
 Fight fire with fire
 Bursting with fear

 Fight fire with fire
 (repeat)


      (Hetfield, Ulrich, Burton, Mustaine)

Guilty as charged
But damn it, it ain't right
There is someone else controlling me

Death in the air
Strapped in the electric chair
This can't be happening to me

Who made you god to say
"I'll take your life from you!!"

 Flash before my eyes
 Now it's time to die
 Burning in my brain
 I can't feel the flame

Wait for the sign
To flick the switch of death
It's the beginning of the end


Sweat, chilling cold
As I watch death unfold
Consciousness is my only friend

My fingers grip with fear
What am I doing here?

 Flash before my eyes
 Now it's time to die
 Burning in my brain
 I can't feel the flame

Someone help me
Oh please god help me
They are trying to take it all away
I don't want to die

Time moving slow
The minutes seem like hours
The final curtain call I see

How true is this?
Just get, it over with
If this is true, just let it be
Wakened by horrid scream
Freed from this frightening dream

 Flash before my eyes
 Now it's time to die
 Burning in my brain
 I can't feel the flame

       For Whom the Bell Tolls
     (Hetfield, Ulrich, Burton)

Make his fight on the hill in the early day
Constant chill deep inside
Shouting gun, on they run through the endless grey
On they fight, for they are right, yes, but who's to say?
For a hill men would kill, why? They do not know
Suffered wounds test their pride
Men of five, still alive through the raging glow
Gone insane from the pain that they surely know

 For Whom the Bell Tolls
 Time marches on
 For Whom the Bell Tolls

Take a look to the sky just before you die
It is the last time he will
Blackened roar massive roar fills the crumbling sky
Shattered goal fills his soul with a ruthless cry
Stranger now, are his eyes, to this mystery
He hears the silence so loud
Crack of dawn, all is gone except the will to be
Now they see what will be, blinded eyes to see

 For Whom the Bell Tolls
 Time marches on
 For Whom the Bell Tolls



     (Hetfield, Ulrich, Burton, Hammett)

Life it seems, will fade away
Drifting further every day
Getting lost within myself
Nothing matters, no one else
I have lost the will to live
Simply nothing more to give
There is nothing more for me
Need the end to set me free

Things not what they used to be
Missing one inside of me
Deathly lost, this can't be real
Cannot stand this hell I feel
Emptiness is filling me
To the point of agony
Growing darkness taking dawn
I was me, but now he's gone

No one but me can save myself, but it's too late
Now I can't think, think why I should even try

Yesterday seems as though it never existed
Death greets me warm, now I will just say goodbye


  (Hetfield, Ulrich, Hammett)

I don't know how to live through this hell
Woken up, I'm still locked in this shell
Frozen soul, frozen down to the core
Break the ice, I can't take anymore

 Freezing
 Can't move at all
 Screaming
 Can't hear my call
 I am dying to live
 Cry out
 I'm Trapped Under Ice

Crystallized, as I lay here and rest
Eyes of glass stare directly at death
>From deep sleep I have broken away
No one knows, no one hears what I say

 Freezing
 Can't move at all
 Screaming
 Can't hear my call
 I am dying to live
 Cry out
 I'm Trapped Under Ice

Scream, from my soul
Fate, mystified
Hell, forever more

No release from my cryonics state
What is this?, I've been stricken by fate
Wrapped up tight, cannot move, can't break free
Hand of doom has a tight grip on me

 Freezing
 Can't move at all
 Screaming
 Can't hear my call
 I am dying to live
 Cry out
 I'm Trapped Under Ice



      (Hetfield, Ulrich, Hammett)

Feel no pain, but my life ain't easy
I know I'm my best friend
No one cares, but I'm so much stronger
I'll fight until the end
To Escape from the true false world
Undamaged destiny
Can't get caught in the endless circle
Ring of stupidity

 Out for my own, out to be free
 One with my mind, they just can't see
 No need to hear the things that they say
 Life is for my own to live my own way

Rape my mind and destroy my feelings
Don't tell me what to do
I don't care now, 'cause I'm on my side
And I can see through you
Feed my brain with your so called standards
Who says that I ain't right
Break away from your common fashion
See through your blurry sight

 Out for my own, out to be free
 One with my mind, they just can't see
 No need to hear the things that they say
 Life is for my own to live my own way

See them try to bring the hammer down
No damn chains can hold me to the ground

 Life is for my own to live my own way
  (repeat)




    (Hetfield, Ulrich, Burton, Hammett)

Slaves
Hebrews born to serve, to the pharaoh
Heed
To his every word, live in fear
Faith
Of the unknown one, the deliverer
Wait
Something must be done, four hundred years

 So let it be written
 So let it be done
 I'm sent here by the chosen one
 So let it be written
 So let it be done
 To kill the first born pharaoh son
 I'm Creeping to Death

Now
Let my people go, land of Goshen
Go
I will be with thee, bush of fire
Blood
Running red and strong, down to Nile
Plague
Darkness three days long, hail to fire

 So let it be written
 So let it be done
 I'm sent here by the chosen one
 So let it be written
 So let it be done
 To kill the first born pharaoh son
 I'm Creeping to Death

Die by my hand
I creep across the land
Killing first born man
Die by my hand
I creep across the land
Killing first born man

I
Rule the midnite air the destroyer
Born
I shall soon be there, deadly mass
I
Creep the steps and floor final darkness
Blood
Lambs blood painted door, I shall pass

 So let it be written
 So let it be done
 I'm sent here by the chosen one
 So let it be written
 So let it be done
 To kill the first born pharaoh son
 I'm Creeping to Death

  (Hetfield,Ulrich)

Lashing out the action, returning the reaction
Weak are ripped and torn away
Hypnotizing power, crushing all that cower
Battery is here to stay

  Smashing through the boundaries
  Lunacy has found me
  Cannot stop the Battery
  Pounding out aggression
  Turns into obsession
  Cannot kill the Battery

  Cannot kill the family
  Battery is found me
  Battery

Crushing all deceivers, mashing non-believers
Never ending potency
Hungry violence seeker, feeding off the weaker
Breeding on insanity

  Smashing through the boundaries
  Lunacy has found me
  Cannot stop the Battery
  Pounding out aggression
  Turns into obsession
  Cannot kill the Battery

  Cannot kill the family
  Battery is found me
  Battery

Circle of destruction, hammer comes crushing
Powerhouse of energy
Whipping up a fury, dominating flurry
We create the Battery

  Smashing through the boundaries
  Lunacy has found me
  Cannot stop the Battery
  Pounding out aggression
  Turns into obsession
  Cannot kill the Battery

  Cannot kill the family
  Battery is found me
  Battery




        (Hetfield, Ulrich, Burton, Hammett)

End of passion play, crumbling away
I'm your score of self-destruction
Veins that pump with fear, sucking darkest clear
Leading on your deaths construction
Taste me you will see
More is all you need
You're dedicated to
How I'm killing you

  Come crawling faster
  Obey your Master
  Your life burns faster
  Obey your Master
    Master

  Master of Puppets I'm pulling your strings
  Twisting your mind and smashing your dreams
  Blinded by me, you can't see a thing
  Just call my name, 'cause I'll hear you scream
  Master
  Master
  Just call my name, 'cause I'll hear you scream
  Master
  Master

Needlework the way, never you betray
Life of death becoming clearer
Pain monopoly, ritual misery
Chop your breakfast on a mirror
Taste me you will see
More is all you need
You're dedicated to
How I'm killing you

  Come crawling faster
  Obey your Master
  Your life burns faster
  Obey your Master
    Master

  Master of Puppets I'm pulling your strings
  Twisting your mind and smashing your dreams
  Blinded by me, you can't see a thing
  Just call my name, 'cause I'll hear you scream
  Master
  Master
  Just call my name, 'cause I'll hear you scream
  Master
  Master

Master, Master, where's the dreams that I've been  after?
Master, Master, you promised only lies
Laughter, laughter, all I hear or see is laughter
Laughter, laughter, laughing at my cries

Hell is worth all that, natural habitat
Just a rhyme without a reason
Neverending maze, drift on numbered days
Now your life is out of season
I will occupy
I will help you die
I will run through you
Now I rule you too

  Come crawling faster
  Obey your Master
  Your life burns faster
  Obey your Master
    Master

  Master of Puppets I'm pulling your strings
  Twisting your mind and smashing your dreams
  Blinded by me, you can't see a thing
  Just call my name, 'cause I'll hear you scream
  Master
  Master
  Just call my name, 'cause I'll hear you scream
  Master
  Master


       (Hetfield, Ulrich, Hammett)

Messenger of fear in sight
Dark deception kills the light
Hybrid children watch the sea
Pray for father, roaming free

  Fearless wretch
  Insanity
  He watches
  Lurking beneath the sea
  Great old one
  Forbidden site
  He searches
  Hunter of the shadows is rising
                 Immortal
                 In madness you dwell

Crawling chaos, underground
Cult has summoned, twisted sound
Out from ruins once possessed
Fallen city, living death

  (Chorus)

Now dead which eternal lie
Stranger eons death may be
Drain you of your sanity
Face the thing that should not be

  Fearless wretch
  Insanity
  He watches
  Lurking beneath the sea
  Great old one
  Forbidden site
  He searches
  Hunter of the shadows is rising
                 Immortal
                 In madness you dwell



           (Sanitarium)
  (Hetfield, Ulrich, Hammett)

Welcome to where time stands still
No one leaves and no one will
Moon is full, never seems the change
Just labeled mentally deranged
Dream the same thing every night
I see our freedom in my sight
No locked doors, no window barred
No things to make my brain seem scarred
Sleep my friend and you will see
That dream is my reality
They keep me locked up in this cage
Can't they see it's why my brain says rage

  Sanitarium, leave me be
  Sanitarium, just leave me alone

Build my fears of what's out there
And cannot breathe the open air
Whispering things into my brain
Assuring me that I'm insane
They think our heads are in their hands
But violent use brings violent plans
Keep him tied, it makes him well
He's getting better, can't you tell?
No more can they keep us in
Listen, damn it, we will win
They see it right, they see it well
But they think this saves us from our hell

  Sanitarium, leave me be
  Sanitarium, just leave me alone
    Sanitarium, just leave me alone

Fear of living on
Natives getting restless now
Mutiny in the air
Got some death to do
Mirror stares back hard
Kill, it's such a friendly word
Seems the only way
For reaching out again



    (Hetfield, Ulrich, Hammett)

Bodies fill the fields I see, hungry heroes end
No one to play soldier now, no one to pretend
Running blind through killing fields, bred to kill
  Them all
Victims of what said should be
A servant `till I fall

  Soldier boy, make of clay
  Now an empty shell
  Twenty one, only son
  But he served us well
  Bred to kill, not to care
  Do just as we say
  Finished here, greetings death
  He's yours to take away
  Back to the front
  You will do what I say, when I say
  Back to the front
  You will die when I say, you must die
  Back to the front
  You coward
  You servant
  You blindman

Barking of machine gun fire, does nothing to me now
Sounding of the clock that ticks, get used to it
 somehow
More a man, more stripes on you bare, glory seeker
 trends
Bodies fill the fields I see
The slaughter never ends

  Soldier boy, make of clay
  Now an empty shell
  Twenty one, only son
  But he served us well
  Bred to kill, not to care
  Do just as we say
  Finished here, greetings death
  He's yours to take away
  Back to the front
  You will do what I say, when I say
  Back to the front
  You will die when I say, you must die
  Back to the front
  You coward
  You servant
  You blindman

Why am I dying?
Kill, have no fear
Lie life off lying
Hell, hell is here
I was born for dying

Life planned out before my birth, nothing could I  say
Had no change to see myself, molded day by day
Looking back I realize, nothing have I done
Left to die with only friend
Alone I clench my gun

  Soldier boy, make of clay
  Now an empty shell
  Twenty one, only son
  But he served us well
  Bred to kill, not to care
  Do just as we say
  Finished here, greetings death
  He's yours to take away
  Back to the front
  You will do what I say, when I say
  Back to the front
  You will die when I say, you must die
  Back to the front
  You coward
  You servant
  You blindman



  (Hetfield, Ulrich)

Spineless from the start, sucked into the part
Circus comes to town, you play the lead clown
Please, please
Spreading his disease, living by his story
Knees, knees
Falling to your knees, suffer for his glory
You will

  Time for lust, time for lie
  Time to kiss you life goodbye
  Send my money, send me green
  Heaven you will meet
  Make a contribution
  And you'll get a better seat
  Bow to Leper Messiah

Marvel at his tricks, need you sunday fix
Blind devotion came, rotting your brain
Chain, chain
Join to endless chain, taken by his glamour
Fame, fame
Infection in the game, stinking drunk with power
We see

  Time for lust, time for lie
  Time to kiss you life goodbye
  Send my money, send me green
  Heaven you will meet
  Make a contribution
  And you'll get a better seat
  Bow to Leper Messiah

Witchery, weakening
Sees the sheep are gathering
Set the trap, hypnotize
Now you follow
 (Chorus)
Lie, lie, lie...



   (Hetfield, Ulrich, Burton, Hammett)

Dealing out the agony within
Gharging hard and no one's gonna give in
Living on your knees, conformity
Or dying on your feet for honesty
Inbred, our bodies work as one
Bloody, but never cry submission
Following our instinct not a trend
Go against the grain until the end

  Blood will follow blood
  Dying time is here
  Damage Incorporated

Slamming through, don't fuck with razorback
Stepping out? You'll feel our hell on your back
Blood follows blood and we make sure
Life ain't for you and we're the cure
Honesty is my only excuse
Try to job us of it, but it's no use
Steamroller action crushing all
Victim is your name and you shall fall

  (Chorus)

We chew and spit you out
We laugh, you scream and shout
All flee with fear you run
You'll know just where we come from
  Damage Incorporated
Damage jackals ripping right through you
Sight and smell of this, it gets my goin'
Know just how to get just what we want
Tear it from your soul in nightly hunt
Fuck it all and fucking no regrets
Never happy endings on these dark sets
All's fair for Damage Inc. you see
Step a little closer if you please

  Blood will follow blood
  Dying time is here
  Damage Incorporated





Halls of justice painted green
Money talking
Power wolves beset your door
Hear them stalking
Soon you'll please their appetite
They devour
Hammer of justice crushes you
Overpower
     The ultimate in vanity
     Exploiting their supremacy
     I can't believe the things you say
     I can't believe
     I can't believe the price you say
     Nothing can save you
      Justice is lost
      Justice is raped
      Justice is gone
           Pulling your strings
      Justice is done
           Seeking no truth
           Winning is all
           Find it so grim
                so true
                so real
Apathy their stepping stone
So unfeeling
Hidden deep animosity
So deceiving
Through your eyes their light burns
Hoping to find
Inquisition sinking you
With prying minds
     The ultimate in vanity
     Exploiting their supremacy
     I can't believe the things you say
     I can't believe
     I can't believe the price you say
     Nothing can save you
      Justice is lost
      Justice is raped
      Justice is gone
           Pulling your strings
      Justice is done
           Seeking no truth
           Winning is all
           Find it so grim
                so true
                so real
Lady justice has been raped
Truth assassin
Rolls of red tape seal your lips
Now you're done in




Their money tips her scales again
Make your deal
Just what is truth? I cannot tell
Cannot feel
     The ultimate in vanity
     Exploiting their supremacy
     I can't believe the things you say
     I can't believe
     I can't believe the price you say
     Nothing can save you
      Justice is lost
      Justice is raped
      Justice is gone
           Pulling your strings
      Justice is done
           Seeking no truth
           Winning is all
           Find it so grim
                so true
                so real
           Seeking no truth
           Winning is all
           Find it so grim
                so true
                so real
           Seeking no truth
           Winning is all
           Find it so grim
                so true
                so real




           (Hetfield, Ulrich, Hammett)
Do you see what I see?
Truth is an offence
You silence for your confidence
Do you hear what I hear?
Doors are slamming shut
Limit your imagination, keep you where they must
Do you feel what I feel?
Bittering distress
Who decides what you express?
Do you take what I take?
Endurance is the word
Moving back instead of forward seems to me absurd
     Doesn't matter what you see
     Or into it what you read
     You can do it your own way
     If it's done just how I say
      Independence limited
      Freedom of choice
      Choice is made for you my friend
      Freedom of speech
      Speech is words that they will bend
      Freedom with their exception


Metallica '88


Do you fear what I fear?
Living properly
Truths to you are lies to me
Do you choose what I choose?
More alternatives
Energy derives from both the plus and negative
Do you need what I need?
Boundaries overthrown
Look inside, to each his own
Do you trust what I trust?
Me, myself and I
Penetrate the smoke screen, I see through the selfish lie
     Doesn't matter what you see
     Or into it what you read
     You can do it your own way
     If it's done just how I say
      Independence limited
      Freedom of choice
      Choice is made for you my friend
      Freedom of speech
      Speech is words that they will bend
      Freedom with their exception
Do you know what I know?
Your money and your wealth
You silence just to hear yourself
Do you want what I want?
Desire not a thing
I hunger after independence, lengthen freedom's ring
     Doesn't matter what you see
     Or into it what you read
     You can do it your own way
     If it's done just how I say
      Independence limited
      Freedom of choice
      Choice is made for you my friend
      Freedom of speech
      Speech is words that they will bend
      Freedom no longer frees you
     Doesn't matter what you see
     Or into it what you read
     You can do it your own way
     If it's done just how I say



                (Hetfield, Ulrich)

I can't remember anything
Can't tell if this is true or dream
Deep down inside I feel to scream
This terrible silence stops me
Now that the war is through with me
I'm waking up, I cannot see
That there's not much left of me
Nothing is real but pain now
     Hold my breath as I wish for death
     Oh please God, wake me


 Back in the womb it's much too real
In pumps life that I must feel
But can't look forward to reveal
Look to the time when I'll live
Fed through the tube that sticks in me
Just like a wartime novelty
Tied to machines that make me be
Cut this life off from me
     Hold my breath as I wish for death
     Oh please God, wake me
     Now the world is gone I'm just one
     Oh God, help me hold my breath as I wish for death
     Oh please God, help me
Darkness    imprisoning me
      all that I see
      absolute horror
      I cannot live
      I cannot die
      trapped in myself
      body my holding cell
Landmine    has taken my sight
      taken my speech
      taken my hearing
      taken my arms
      taken my legs
      taken my soul
      left me with life in hell


                (Hetfield, Ulrich)

Suspicion is your name
Your honesty to blame
Put dignity to shame
Dishonor
Witchhunt, modern day
Determining decay
The blatant disarray
Disfigure
The public eyes' disgrace
Defying common place
Unending paper chase
Unending
Deafening
Painstaking
Reckoning
This vertigo it doth bring
     Shortest straw
     Challenge liberty
     Downed by law
     Live in infamy
     Rub your raw
     Witchhunt riding through
     Shortest straw
     This shortest straw has been pulled for you
     Pulled for you


     Shortest straw
     Pulled for you
      Shortest straw
     Pulled for you
      Shortest straw
     Shortest straw has been pulled for you
The accusations fly
Discrimination, why?
Your inner self to die
Intruding
Doubt sunk itself in you
It's teeth and talons through
Your living catch-22
Deluding
A mass hysteria
A megalomania
Reveal dementia
Reveal
Secretly
Silently
Certainly
In vertigo you will be
     Shortest straw
     Challenge liberty
     Downed by law
     Live in infamy

      Shortest straw
     Shortest straw has been pulled for you
Behind you, hands are tied
Your being, ostracized
Your hell is multiplied
Upending
The fallout has begun
Oppressive damage done
Your many turned to none
To nothing
You're reaching your nadir
Your will has disappeared
The lie is crystal clear
Defending

Channels red
One word said
Blacklisted
With vertigo make you dead
     Shortest straw
     Challenge liberty
     Downed by law
     Live in infamy

My life suffocated
Planting seeds of hate
I've loved, turned to hate
Trapped far beyond my fate
I give
You take
This life that I forsake
Been cheated of my youth
You turned this lie to truth
     Anger
     Misery
     You'll suffer unto me
      Harvester of sorrow
      Language of the mad
      Harvester of sorrow
Pure black looking clear
My work is done soon here
Try getting back to me
Get back witch used to be
Drink up
Shoot up
Let the beatings begin
Distributor of pain
Your loss becomes my gain
     Anger
     Misery
     You'll suffer unto me
      Harvester of sorrow
      Language of the mad
      Harvester of sorrow
All have said their prayers
Invade their nightmares
To see into my eyes
You'll find where murder lies
Infanticide
     Harvester of sorrow
     Language of the mad
     Harvester of sorrow
     Language of the mad

     Harvester of sorrow


  (Hetfield, Ulrich, Hammett)

Never hunger
Never prosper
I have fallen prey to failure
Struggle within
Triggered again
Now the candle burns at both ends
Twisting under schizophrenia
Falling deep into dementia
     Old habits reappear
     Fighting the fear of fear
     Growing conspiracy
     Everyone's after me
     Frayed ends of sanity
     Hear them calling
     Hear them calling me
Birth of terror
Death of much more
I'm the slave of fear, my captor
Never warnings
Spreading its wings
As I wait for the horror she brings
Loss of interest, question, wonder
Waves of fear they pull me under
     Old habits reappear
     Fighting the fear of fear
     Growing conspiracy
     Everyone's after me
     Frayed ends of sanity
     Hear them calling
     Hear them calling me
Into ruin
I am sinking
Hostage of this nameless feeling
Hell is set free
Flooded I'll be
Feel the undertow inside me
Height, hell, time, haste, terror, tension
Life, death, want, waste, mass depression
     Old habits reappear
     Fighting the fear of fear
     Growing conspiracy
     Myself is after me
     Frayed ends of sanity
     Hear them calling
     Frayed ends of sanity
     Hear them calling
     Hear them calling me


         To Live Is To Die
     (Hetfield, Ulrich, Burton)

When a man lies he murders
 Some part of the world
These are pale deaths which
 Men miscall their lives
All this I cannot bear
 To witness any longer
Cannot the kingdom of salvation
 Take me home


            (Hetfield, Ulrich Hammett)

Dear mother
Dear father
What is this hell you have put me through
Believer
Deceiver
Day in day out live my life through you
Pushed onto me what's wrong or right
Hidden from this thing that they call life
Dear mother
Dear father
Every thought I'd think you'd disapprove
Curator
Dictator
Always censoring my every move
Children are seen but are not heard
Tear out everything inspired
     Innocence
     Torn from me without your shelter
     Barred reality
     I'm living blindly
Dear mother
Dear father
Time has frozen still what's left to be
Hear nothing
Say nothing
Cannot face the fact I think for me
No guarantee, it's life as is
But damn you for not giving me my chance
Dear mother
Dear father
You've clipped my wings before I learned to fly
Unspoiled
Unspoken
I've outgrown that fucking lullaby
Same thing I've always heard from you
Do as I say not as I do
     Innocence
     Torn from me without your shelter
     Barred reality

     I'm living blindly
      I'm in hell without you
      Cannot cope without you two
      Shocked at the world that I see
      Innocent victim please rescue me
Dear mother
Dear father
Hidden in your world you've made for me
I'm seething
I'm bleeding
Ripping wounds in me that never heal
Undying spite I feel for you
Living out this hell you always knew





(Hetfield/Ulrich/Hammett)

Say your prayers little one
don't forget, my son
to include everyone

Tuck you in, warm within
keep you free from sin
till the sandman he comes

        Sleep with one eye open
        gripping your pillow tight

          Exit:light
          enter:night
          Take my hand
          we're off to never never land

Something's wrong, shut the light
heavy thoughts tonight
and they aren't of snow white

Dreams of war, dreams of liars
dreams of dragon's fire
and the things that will bite

        Sleep woth one eye open
        gripping your pillow tight

          Exit:light
          enter:night
          take my hand
          we're off to never never land

Now I lay me down to sleep
pray the lord my soul to keep
if I die before I wake
pray the lord my soul to take

Hust till baby don't say a word
and never mind that noise you heard
It's just a beast under your bed
in your closet, in your head

          Exit:light
          enter:night
          grain of sand

          Exit:light
          enter:night
          take my hand
          we're off to never never land

Hey
I'm your life
I'm the one who takes you there
Hey
I'm your life
I'm the one who cares
They
They betray
I'm your only true friend now
They
They betray
I'm forever there

        I'm your dreams, make you real
        I'm your eye when you must steal
        I'm your pain when you can't feel
        Sad but true
        I'm your dream, mind astray
        I'm your eyes while you're away
        I'm your pain when you repay
        You know it's sad but true

You
You're my mask
You're my cover, my shelter
You
You're my mask
You're the one who blamed
Do
do my work
do my dirty work, scapegoat
do
do my deeds
for you're the one who's shamed

        I'm your dreams, make you real
        I'm your eyes when you must steal
        I'm your pain when you can't feel
        Sad but true
        I'm your dream, mind astray
        I'm your eyes while you're away
        I'm your pain when you repay
        You know it's sad but true


Hate
I'm your hate
I'm your hate when you want love
Pay
pay the price
pay, for nothing's fair
Hey
I'm your life
I'm the one who took you there
Hey
I'm your life
and I no longer care

        I'm your dreams, make you real
        I'm your eyes when you must steal
        I'm your pain when you can't feal
        Sad but true
        I'm your truth, telling lies
        I'm your reason, alibis
        I'm inside open your eyes
        I'm you
        Sad but true

No more!
the crap rolls out your mouth again
haven't changed, your brain is still gelatin
Little whispers circle around your head
why don't you worry about yourself instead

Who are you ? Where ya been ? Where ya from ?
gossip is burning on the tip of your tongue
You lie so much you believe yourself
judge not lest ye be judged yourself

        Holier than thou
        you are
        Holier than thou
        you are
        You know not

Before you judge me take a look at you
can't you find something better to do
Point the finger, slow to understand
arrogance and ignorance go hand in hand

It's not who you are it's who you know
others lives are basis of your own
Burn your bridges build them back with wealth
judge not lest ye be judged yourself

        Holier than thou
        you are
        Holier than thou
        you are
        you know not

New blood joins this earth
and quickly he's subdued
Throught constant pained disgrace
the young boy learn their rules

With time child drawns in
this whipping boy done wrong
Deprived of all his thoughts
the young man struggles on and on he's known
A wow unto his own
that never from this day
His will they'll take away

        What I've felt
        What I've known
        never shined throught in what I've shown
        Never be
        Never see
        Won't see what might have been

        What I've felt
        What I've known
        never shined throught in what I've shown
        Never free
        Never me
        So I dub thee unforgiven


The dedicate their lives
to running all of his
He tries to please them all
this bitter man he is
Throughtout his life the same
he's battled constantly
This fight he cannot win
a tired man they see no longer cares
The old man they prepares
to die regretfully
the old man here is me

        What I've felt
        What I've known
        never shined throught in what I've known
        Never be
        Never see
        Won't see what might have been

        What I've felt
        What I've known
        never shined throught in what I've known
        Never free
        Never me
        So I dub the unforgiven

You labeled me
I'll label you
So I dub the unforgiven

...And the road becomes my bridge
I have stripped of all but pride
so in her I do confide
and she keeps me satisfied
gives me all I need

...And with dust in throat I crave
only knowledge will I save
The game you stay a slave
Rover   wanderer
nomad   vagabond
Call me what you will

        But I'll take my time anywhere
        free to speak my mind anywhere
        And I'll redefine anywhere
          Anywhere I roam
          where I lay my head is home

...And the earth becomes my throne
I adapt to the unknown
under wandering stars I've grown
by myself but not alone
I ask no one

...And my ties are severed clean
the less I have the more I gain
off the beaten part I reign
Rover   wanderer
nomad vagabond
Call me what you will

        But I'll take my time anywhere
        I'm free to speak my mind anywhere
        And I'll never mind anywhere
           Anywhere I roam
           where I lay my head is home

        But I'll take my time anywhere
        free to speak my mind
        And I'll take my mind anywhere
           Anywhere I roam
           where I lay my head is home

        Carved upon my stone
        my body lie, but still I roam
           Wherever I may roam

Libery or death, what we so proudly hail
Once you provoke her, rattling of her tail
Never begins it, never, but once engaged...
Never surrenders, showing the fangs of rage

Don't tread on me

        So be it
        threaten no more
        to secure peace is to prepere for war
        So be it
        settle the score
        touch me again for the words that you will hear
evermore...

Don't tread on me

Love it or leave it, she with the deadly bite
Quick is the blue tongue, forked as the lightning strike
Shining with brightness, always on surveillance
The eyes, they never close, emblem of vigilance

Don't tread on me

        So be it
        threaten no more
        to secure peace is to prepare for war
        So be it
        settle the score
        touch me again for the words that you will hear
evermore...

Don't tread on me

        So be it
        threaten no more
        To secure peace is to prepare for war

Liberity or death, what we so proudly hail
Once you provoke her, rattling on her tail

        So be it
        threaten no more
        to secure peace is to prepare for war
        so be it
        settle the score
        touch me again for the words that you will hear
evermore...

Don't tread on me





(Hetfield/Ulrich/Hammett)


All that is, was and will be
Universe much too big to see

Time and space never ending
disturbing thoughts, questions pending
limitations of human understanding

Too quick to criticize
obligation to survive
we hunger to be alive

        All that is, ever
        ever was
        will be ever
        twisting
        turning
        through the never

In the dark, see past our eyes
pursuit of truth no matter where it lies

Gazing up to the breeze of the heavens
on a quest, meaning, reason
came to be, how it begun
all alone in the family of the sun
curiosity teasing everyone
on our home, third stone from the sun

        All that is, ever
        ever was
        will be ever
        twisting
        turning
        through the never

On through the never
we must go
On through the never
out of the
edge of forever
we must go
on through the never
then never comes

        All that is, ever
        ever was
        vill be ever
        Who we are
        ask forever
        twisting
        turning
        through the never

        Never




(Hetfield, Ulrich)


So close, no matter how far
couldn't be much more from the heart
Forever trusting who we are
And nothing else matters

Never opened myself this way
life is ours, we live it our way
All these words I don't just say
And nothing else matters

Trust I seek and I found you
every day for us something new
Open mind for a different view
And nothing else matters

        Never cared for what they do
        Never cared for what they know
        but I know

So close no matter how far
Couldn't be no more from the heart
Forever trusting who we are
And nothing else matters

        Never cared for what they do
        Never cared for what they know
        but I know

Never opened myself this way
life is ours, we live it our way
All these words I don't just say

Trust I seek and I found you
every day for us something new
Open mind for a differend view
And nothing else matters

        Never cared for what they say
        Never cared for what they play
        Never cared for what they do
        Never cared for what they known
        And I know

So close no matter how far
couldn't be much more from the heart
Forever trusting who we are
No nothing else matters




(Hetfield/Ulrich/Hammett)


Off through the new day's mist I run
out from the new day's mist I have come
I hunt
theremore I am
harvest the land
taking of the fallen lamb

Off through the new day's mist I rub
out from the new day's mist I have come
We shift
pulsing with the earth
company we keep
roaming the land while you sleep

        Shape shift     nose to the wind
        Shape shift     feeling I've been
        Move swift      all senses clean
        Earth's gift    back to the meaning of life

Bright is the moon high in starlight
chill in the air cold as steel tonight
we shift
call of the wind
fear in your eyes
It's later than you realized

        Shape shift     nose to the wind
        Shape shift     feeling I've been
        Mowe swift      all senses clean
        Earth's gift
        Back to the meaning of wolf and man

Pride you took
Pride you feel
Pride that you felt when you'd kneel

Not the word
Not the love
Not what you thought from above

        It feeds
        It grows
        It clouds all that you will know
        Deceit
        Deceive
        Decide just what you believe

          I see faith in your eyes
          never you her the discouraging lies
          I hear faith in your cries
          broken is the promice, betrayal
          the healing hand held back by the deepened nail

          Follow the god that failed

Find your peace
find your say
find the smooth road on your way

Trust you gave
a child to save
left you cold and him in grave

        It feeds
        It grows
        It clouds all that you will know
        Deceit
        Deceive
        Decide just what you believe

           I see faith in your eyes
           never you hear the discouraging lies
           I hear faith in your eyes
           broken is the promice, betrayal
           the healing hand held back by the deepened nail

           Follow the god that failed

           I see faith in your eyes
           Broken is the promice, betrayal
           the healing hand held back by the deepened nail

           Follow the god that failed

Pride you took
Pride you feel
Pride that you felt when you'd kneel

Trust you gave
a child to save
left us cold and hi in grave

           I see faith in your eyes
           never you hear the disciuraging lies
           I hear faith in your cries
           brokes is the promice, betrayal
           the healing hand held back by the deepened nail

           Follow the gof that failed




(Hetfield/Ulrich/Newsted)


You just stood there screaming
fearing no one was listening to you
they say the empty can rattles the most
The sound of your own voice must smoothe you
hearing only what you want to hear
and knowing only what you've heard
You    you're smothered in tragedy
you're out to save the world

        Misery
        you insist that the weight of the world
        should be on your shoulders
        Misery
        there's much more to life than what you see
        My friend of misery

You still stood there screaming
No one caring about these words you tell
my friend before your voice is gone
One man's fun is another's hell
these time are sent to try men's souls
but something's wrong with all you see
Yoy    you'll take it on all yourself
remember, misery loves company

        Misery
        you insist that weight of the world
        should be on your shoulders
        Misery
        there's much more to life than what you see
        My friend of misert

You just stood there screaming
My friend of misery




(Hetfield/Ulrich)

Reaching out for something you've got to feel
while clutching to what you had thought was real

Kicking at a dead horse pleases you
no way of showing your gratitude
So many things you don't want to do
What is it? What you have got to lose

What is hell
What is it you thing you're gonna find?
Hypocrite
boredom sets into the boring mind

        Struggle within    it suits you fine
        Struggle within    your ruin
        Struggle within    you seal your own coffin
        Struggle within    the struggling within

Home is not a home it becomes a hell
turning it into your prison sell
Advantages are taken, not hanged out
while you struggle inside your hell

Reaching out
grabbing for something you've got to feel
closing in
the pressure upon you is still unreal

        Struggle within    it suits you fine
        Struggle within    your ruin
        Struggle within    you seal your own coffin
        Struggle within    the struggling within

Reaching out for something you've got to feel
while clutching to what you had thought was real
what the hell

What is it you think you're gonna find
hypocrite
boredom sets into the boring mind

        Struggle within    it suit your fine
        Struggle within    your ruin
        Struggle within    you seal your own coffin
        Struggle within    the struggling within

Fortune, fame
Mirror vain
Gone insane
But the memory remains
Heavy rings on fingers wave
Another star denies the grave
See the nowhere crowd cry the nowhere tears of honor
Like twisted vines that grow
Hide and swallow mansions whole
And dim the light of an already faded prima donna
Fortune, fame
Mirror vain
Gone insane
Fortune, fame
Mirror vain
Gone insane
But the memory remains
Heavy rings hold cigarettes
Up to lips that time forgets
While the Hollywood sun sets behind your back
And can't the band play on
Just listen, they play my song
Ash to ash
Dust to dust
Fade to black
Fortune, fame
Mirror vain
Gone insane
Fortune, fame
Mirror vain
Gone insane
Dance little tin goddess

Lay beside me
Tell me what they've done
Speak the words I wanna hear
To make my demons run
The door is locked now
But it's opened if you're true
If you can understand the me
Then I can understand the you
Lay beside me
Under wicked skies
Through black of day
Dark of night
We share this paralyze
The door cracks open
But there's no sun shining through
Black heart scarring darker still
But there's no sun shining through
No, there's no sun shining through
No, there's no sun shining
What I've felt
What I've known
Turn the pages
Turn the stone
Behind the door
Should I open it for you?
Yeah
What I've felt
What I've known
Sick and tired
I stand alone
Could you be there
'cause I'm the one who waits for you
Or are you unforgiven too?
Come lay beside me
This won't hurt, I swear
She loves me not
She loves me still
But she'll never love again
She lay beside me
But she'll be there when I'm gone
Black heart scarring darker still
Yes, she'll be there when I'm gone
Yes, she'll be there when I'm gone
Dead sure she'll be there
What I've felt

Turn the pages

The one who waits for you
Oh

Turn the pages
Turn the stone
Behind the door
Should I open it for you?
So I dub thee unforgiven
Oh, what I've felt
Oh, what I've known
I take this key
And I bury it in you
Because you're unforgiven too
Never free
Never me
'cause you're unforgiven too
Oh




I look at you, then you me
Hungry and thirsty are we
Holding the lion's share
Holding the key
Holding me back 'cause I'm striving to be
Better than you (better than you)
Better than you (better than you)
Lock horns, I push, and I strive
Somehow I feel more alive
Bury the need for it
Bury the seed
Bury me deep when there's no will to be
Better than you (better than you)
Oh better than you (better than you)
Oh, can't stop this train from rolling
Oh, yo, nothing brings me down
No, can't stop this train from rolling on and on, on
No, no, forever on and on
Oh, can't stop this train from rolling
Oh, yo, you can't take it down
No, never stop this locomotion on and on and on
No, no, you can't bring me down 'cause I'm

Forever on and on and on and on and on
Forever on and on and on

Split sky
Part sea
Strip smile
Lose cool
Bleed the day
And break the rule
Live to win
Dare to fail
Eat the dirt
And bite the nail

It don't feel good until it hurts
So take this world and shake it
Come squeeze and suck the day
Come carpe diem baby
Draw lead
Piss wine
Sink teeth
All mine
Stoke fire
Break neck
Suffer through this
Cheat on death
Hug the curve
Lose the time
Tear the map
And shoot the sign
Mm, then make me miss you
Oh yeah

So wash your face away with dirt
It don't feel good until it hurts
So take this world and shake it
Come squeeze and suck the day
Come carpe diem baby

Live to win
Dare to fail
Eat dirt
Bite the nail
Strip smile

Then make me miss you
So wash your face away with dirt
It don't feel good until it hurts
So take this world and shake it
Come squeeze and suck the day
Come make me miss you
Come carpe diem baby
Come carpe diem baby

So wake up sleepy one
It's time to save your world
Steal dreams and give to you
Shop lift a thought or two
All children touch the sun
Burn fingers one by one
By one
Will this earth be good to you?
Keep you clean or stain through?
So wake up sleepy one
It's time to save your world
You're where the wild things are
Yeah
Toy soldiers off to war
Big eyes to open soon
Believing all under sun and moon
But does heaven know you're here?
And did they give you smiles or tears?
No, no tears
Will this earth be good to you?
Keep you clean or stain through?
So wake up sleepy one
It's time to save your world
You're where the wild things are
Yeah
Toy soldiers off to war
You swing your ass all down
Call to arms, a trumpet's sound
Toy horses start the charge
Robots, chessmen standing guard
It's a never surrender
All you children touch the sun
Burn your fingers one by one
Will this earth be good to you?
Keep you clean or stain through?
So wake up sleepy one
It's time to save your world
You're where the wild things are
Yeah
Toy soldiers off to war
Off to war
Off to war
So close your little eyes




There's a black cloud overhead
That's me
And the poison ivy chokes the tree
Again it's me
I'm the filthy one on Bourbon Street
You walk on by
I'm the little boy that pushes hard
And makes him cry
There's a dirty needle in your child
Haha, stick me
Empty bottles still in hand, still dead
Still me
I'm the suit and tie that bleeds the street
And still wants more
I'm the .45 that's in your mouth
I'm a dirty, dirty whore
Yeah
Look it's me
The one who can't be free
Much too young to focus
But too old to see
Hey
Look it's me
What no one wants to see
See what you brought this world
Just what you wanna see
Hey ma
Hey ma, look it's me
Yeah
He wants to become father now
Me again, me
The marks inside your arms spell me
Spell only me
I'm a nothing face that plants the bomb
And strolls away
I'm the one who doesn't look quite right
As children play
Yeah
Look it's me
The one who can't be free
Much too young to focus
But too old to see
Hey
Look it's me
What no one wants to see
See what you brought this world
Just what you wanna see
Hey ma
Hey ma, look it's me

One, two, three, one
My eyes seek reality
My fingers seek my veins
There's a dog at your back step
He must come in from the rain
I fall 'cause I let go
The net below has rot away
So my eyes seek reality
And my fingers seek my veins
The trash fire is warm
But nowhere safe from the storm
And I can't bear to see
What I've let me be
So wicked and worn
So as I write to you
Of what is done and to do
Maybe you'll understand
And won't cry for this man
'cause low man is due
Please forgive me
My eyes seek reality
My fingers feel for faith
Touch clean with a dirty hand
I touch the clean to the waste
The trash fire is warm
But nowhere safe from the storm
And I can't bear to see
What I've let me be
So wicked and worn
So as I write to you, yeah
Of what is done and to do, yeah
Maybe you'll understand
And won't cry for this man
'cause low man is due
Please forgive me
Please forgive me
Please forgive me
So low the sky is all I see
All I want from you is forgive me
So you bring this poor dog in from the rain
Though he just wants right back out again
And I cry to the alleyway
Confess all to the rain
But I lie, lie straight to the mirror
The one I've broken to match my face
The trash fire is warm
But nowhere safe from the storm
And I can't bear to see
What I've let me be
So wicked and worn
So as I write to you, yeah
Of what is done and to do, yeah
Maybe you'll understand
And won't cry for this man
'cause low man is due
Please forgive me
Please forgive me
So low the sky is all I see
All I want from you is forgive me
So you bring this poor dog in from the rain
Though he just wants right back out again
My eyes seek reality
My fingers seek my veins




Suppose I say
I'm never satisfied
Suppose I say
You cut some root
To make the tree survive
Just let me kill you for a while
Just let me kill you for a smile
Just let me kill you once
I'm oh so bored to death
Oh, I hunger
I hunger
I eat
Born into attitude
Asleep at the wheel
Throw all your bullets in the fire
And run like hell
Why cure the fever?
What ever happened to sweat?
Suppose I say
The vultures smile at me
Suppose I say
I've sent them down
They plan to pick you clean
And satisfaction this way comes
And satisfaction this way comes
And satisfaction's here and gone
Gone, yeah, and gone again
Oh, I hunger
Oh, I hunger
I eat
Born into attitude
Asleep at the wheel
Throw all your bullets in the fire
And stand there
Born into attitude
Twist mother tongue
Throw all your bullets in the fire
And run like hell
Why cure the fever?
What ever happened to sweat?
Just let me kill you for a while
Just let me kill you for a smile
Just let me kill you once for me
I'm bored to death
And satisfaction this way comes
And satisfaction this way comes
And satisfaction's here and gone
Gone, gone again
Yeah, I hunger
Oh, I hunger
I eat
Born into attitude
Asleep at the wheel
Throw all your bullets in the fire
And stand there
Born into attitude
Twist mother tongue
Throwing all your bullets in the fire
And run like hell
Why cure the fever?
What ever happened to sweat?




Yeah
Dolls of voodoo all stuck with pins
One for each of us and our sins
So you lay us in a line
Push your pins, they make us humble
Only you can tell in time
If we fall or merely stumble
But tell me
Can you heal what father's done?
Or fix this hole in a mother's son?
Can you heal the broken worlds within?
Can you strip away so we may start again?
Tell me, can you heal what father's done?
Or cut this rope and let us run?
Just when all seems fine and I'm pain free
You jab another pin
Jab another pin in me
Yeah
Mirror, mirror upon the wall
Break the spell or become the doll
See you sharpening the pins
So the holes will remind us
We're just the toys in the hands of another
And in time the needles turn from shine to rust
But tell me
Can you heal what father's done?
Or fix this hole in a mother's son?
Can you heal the broken worlds within?
Can you strip away so we may start again?
Tell me, can you heal what father's done?
Or cut this rope and let us run?
Just when all seems fine and I'm pain free
You jab another pin
Jab another pin in me
Jab it
Blood for face
Sweat for dirt
Three X's for the stone
To break this curse
A ritual's due
I believe I'm not alone
Shell of shotgun
Pint of gin
Numb us up to shield the pins
Renew our faith
Which way we can
To fall in love with life again
To fall in love with life again
To fall in love with life again
To fall in love
To fall in love
To fall in love with life again
So tell me
Can you heal what father's done?
Or fix this hole in a mother's son?
Can you heal the broken worlds within?
Can you strip away so we may start again?
Yeah, tell me, can you heal what father's done?
or cut this rope and let us run?
Just when all seems fine and I'm pain free
You jab another pin
Jab another pin in me
Oh yeah
No more pins in me, yeah
No more, no more pins in me
No more, no more pins in me
No more, no more, no more
o, no, no




New  blood joins this earth
And quickly he's sub-dued
Through constant pain  disgrace,
The young  boy  learns their rules.
With time the child draws in
This whipping boy done wrong.
Deprived of all his thoughts,
The young  man struggles on and  on. He knows,
Oo  a  vow unto   his own
That never from  this day
his will they'll take a  way
What I've felt,
What I've   known
Never shined through in what I've shown.
Never be.
Never see.
Won't see what  might have been.
What I've felt,
what I've known,
Never shined through in what I've shown
Never free.
Never me.
So I dub thee unforgiven.

They dedicate their lives
to running all of his
He tries to please them all,
This bitter man he is
Throughout the life the same,
he's battled constantly
This fight he cannot win.
A tired man they see no longer cares.
The old man then prepares
to die regretfully
That old man here is me.

What I've felt,
What I've   known
Never shined through in what I've shown.
Never be.
Never see.
Won't see what  might have been.
What I've felt,
what I've known,
Never shined through in what I've shown
Never free.
Never me.
So I dub thee unforgiven.

What I've felt,
What I've   known
Never shined through in what I've shown.
Never be.
Never see.
Won't see what  might have been.
What I've felt,
what I've known,
Never shined through in what I've shown
Never free.
Never me.
So I dub thee unforgiven.

Never free.
Never me.
So I dub thee unforgiven.

Never me.
Never you.
So I dub thee unforgiven.

Never free.
Never me.
So I dub thee unforgiven.

Never me.
Never you.
So I dub thee unforgiven.
