01 SKIN O' MY TEETH

(3:16)

I had wrists donning slits, flowing constantly
My broken body in a wreck wrapped around a tree
A crosswalk hit and run, the finish line for me
People clutter in the gutter, take a look and see

No escaping pain, you belong to me
Clinging on to life by the skin o' my teeth
No escaping pain, you belong to me
Clinging on to life by the skin o' my teeth

And my blood flows through the streets, deluge from the wounds
Empty jars of sleeping pills on the dresser in my room
My wet brain neighbor cranes, his neck to see
In time the white light's a train, bearing down on me

No escaping pain, you belong to me
Clinging on to life by the skin o' my teeth
No escaping pain, you belong to me
Clinging on to life by the skin o' my teeth

I won't feel the hurt, I'm not trash any longer
But that doesn't kill me only makes me stronger
I need a ride to the morgue, that's what 911 is for
So, tag my toe and don't forget, ooh, to close the drawer

No escaping pain, you belong to me
Clinging on to life by the skin o' my teeth
No escaping pain, you belong to me
Clinging on to life by the skin o' my teeth

02 SYMPHONY OF DESTRUCTION

(4:04)

You take a mortal man
And put him in control
Watch him become a god
Watch peoples heads a-roll
A-roll, a-roll...

Just like the Pied Piper
Led rats through the streets
We dance like marionettes
Swaying to the Symphony Of Destruction

Acting like a robot
Its metal brain corrodes
You try to take its pulse
Before the head explodes
Explodes, explodes...

Just like the Pied Piper
Led rats through the streets
We dance like marionettes
Swaying to the Symphony...
Just like the Pied Piper
Led rats through the streets
We dance like marionettes
Swaying to the Symphony...
Swaying to the Symphony Of Destruction

The earth starts to rumble
The world powers fall
A warring for the heavens
A peaceful man stands tall
Stands tall, stands tall...

Just like the Pied Piper
Led rats through the streets
We dance like marionettes
Swaying to the Symphony...
Just like the Pied Piper
Led rats through the streets
We dance like marionettes
Swaying to the Symphony...
Swaying to the Symphony Of Destruction

03 ARCHITECTURE OF AGGRESSION

(3:36)

Born from the dark, in the black cloak of night
To envelop its prey below, deliver to the light
To eliminate your enemy, hit them in their sleep
And when all is won and lost, the spoils of wars are yours to keep

Great nations built from the bones
Of the dead with mud and straw
Blood and sweat, you know your worth
When your enemies praise your architecture of aggression

Praise your architecture of aggression

Ensuing power vacuum, a toppled leader dies
His body fuels the power fire, and the flames rise to the sky
One side of his face a kiss, the other genocide
Time to pay with your ass, a worldwide suicide

Great nations built from the bones
Of the dead with mud and straw
Blood and sweat, you know your worth
When your enemies praise your architecture of aggression

Born from the dark, in the black cloak of night
To envelop its prey below, deliver to the light
To eliminate your enemy, hit them in their sleep
And when all is won and lost, the spoils of wars are yours to keep

Great nations built from the bones
Of the dead with mud and straw
Blood and sweat, you know your worth
When your enemies praise your architecture of aggression
Great nations built from the bones
Of the dead with mud and straw
Blood and sweat, you know your worth
When your enemies...

Praise your architecture of aggression

04 FORECLOSURE OF A DREAM

(4:19)

Rise so high, yet so far to fall
A plan of dignity and balance for all
Political breakthrough, euphoria's high
More borrowed money, more borrowed time
Backed in a corner, caught up in the race
Means to an end, ended in disgrace
Perspective is lost in the spirit of the chase

Foreclosure of a dream
Those visions never seen
Until all is lost, personal holocaust
Foreclosure of a dream

Barren land that once filled a need
Are worthless now, dead without a dead
Slipping away from an iron grip
Nature's scales are forced to tip
The heartland dies, loss of all pride
To leave ain't believing, so try and be tried
Insufficient funds, insanity and suicide

Foreclosure of a dream
Those visions never seen
Until all is lost, personal holocaust
Foreclosure of a dream

Now with new hope, some will be proud
This is no hoax, no one pushed out
Receive a reprieve and be a pioneer
Break new ground of a new frontier
New ideas will surely get by
No deed, or dividend, some may ask why
You'll find the solution, the answer's in the sky

Rise so high, yet so far to fall
A plan of dignity and balance for all
Political breakthrough, euphoria's high
More borrowed money, more borrowed time

Foreclosure of a dream
Those visions never seen
Until all is lost, personal holocaust
Foreclosure of a dream

Foreclosure of a dream
Those visions never seen
Until all is lost, personal holocaust
Foreclosure of a dream

Holocaust

05 SWEATING BULLETS

(5:05)

Hello me, meet the real me
And my misfits way of life
A dark black past is my
Most valued possessions
Hindsight is always 20-20
But looking back it's still a bit fuzzy
You speak of mutually assured destruction
Nice story, tell it to Readers' Digest

Feeling paranoid
True enemy or false friend
Anxiety's attacking me
My air is getting thin
I'm in trouble for the things
I haven't got to yet
I'm chomping at the bit
And my palms are getting wet
Sweating bullets

Hello me, it's me again
You can subdue, but never tame me
It gives me a migraine headache
Thinking down to your level
You just keep on thinking it's my fault
And stay an inch or two out of kicking distance
Mankind has got to know his limitations

Feeling claustrophobic
Like the walls are closing in
Blood stains on my hands and
I don't know where I've been
I'm in trouble for the things
I haven't got to yet
I'm sharpening the axe
And my palms are getting wet
Sweating bullets

Well me, it's nice talking to myself
A credit to dementia
Some day you too will know my pain
And smile its black toothed grin
If the war inside my head
Won't take a day off I'll be dead
My icy fingers claw your back
Here I come again

Feeling paranoid
True enemy or false friend
Anxiety's attacking me
And my air is getting thin
Feeling claustrophobic
Like the walls are closing in
Blood stains on my hands
And I don't know where I've been

Once you committed me
Now you've acquitted me
Claiming validity
For your stupidity
I'm chomping at the bit
I'm sharpening the axe
Here I come again, whoa
Sweating bullets

06 THIS WAS MY LIFE

(3:44)

It was just another day
It was just another fight
It was words strung into sentences
It was doomed to not be right

There is something wrong with me
There is something wrong with you
There is nothing left of us
There is one thing I can do

Lying on your bed, examining my head
This is the part of me that hates
Payback are a bitch, I throw the switch
Somewhere an electric chair awaits
Hey! This was my life
Hey! This was my fate

This was the wrong thing to do
This was the wrong one to be doing
This was the road to destiny
This was the road to my ruin

Now there's motives for the suspect
Now there's nothing left to say
Now there's method to the madness
Now there's society to pay

Lying on your bed, examining my head
This is the part of me that hates
Payback are a bitch, I throw the switch
Somewhere an electric chair awaits
Hey! This was my life
Hey! This was my fate

In our life there's if
In our beliefs there's lie
In our business there's sin
In our bodies there's die

This was my life
This was my fate
This was my life
This was my fate

07 COUNTDOWN TO EXTINCTION

(4:18)

Endangered species, caged in fright
Shot in cold blood, no chance to fight
The stage is set, now pay the price
An ego boost, don't think twice
Technology, the battle's unfair
You pull the hammer without a care
Squeeze the trigger that makes you man
Pseudo-safari, the hunt is canned
The hunt is canned

All are gone, all but one
No contest, nowhere to run
No more left, only one
This is it, this is the Countdown to Extinction

Tell the truth, you wouldn't dare
The skin and trophy, oh so rare
Silence speaks louder than words
Ignore the guilt, and take your turn
Liars anagram is lairs
Man you were never even there
Killed a few feet from the cages
Point blank, you're so courageous ...
So courageous

All are gone, all but one
No contest, nowhere to run
No more left, only one
This is it, this is the Countdown to Extinction

One hour from now
Another species of life form
Will disappear off the face of the planet
Forever ... and the rate is accelerating

All are gone, all but one
No contest, nowhere to run
No more left, only one
This is it, this is the Countdown to Extinction

08 HIGH SPEED DIRT

(4:14)

Do it if you dare, leaping from the sky
Hurling through the air, exhilarating high
See the earth below, soon to make a crater
Blue sky, black death, I'm off to meet my maker

Energy of the Gods, adrenaline surge
Won't stop till I hit the ground, I'm on my way for sure
Up here in the air, this will never hurt
I'm on my way to impact, taste the high speed dirt

Paralyzed with fear, feel velocity gain
Entering a near, catatonic state
Pressure of the sound, roaring thru my head
Crash into the ground, damned if I'll be dead

Energy of the Gods, adrenaline surge
Won't stop till I hit the ground, I'm on my way for sure
Up here in the air, this will never hurt
I'm on my way to impact, taste the high speed dirt

Jump or die

Dropping all my weight, going down full throttle
The pale horse awaits, like a genie in a bottle
Fire in my veins, faster as I go
I forgot my name, I'm a dirt torpedo

High speed dirt, High speed dirt
High speed dirt, High speed dirt
High speed dirt, High speed dirt
High speed dirt, High speed dirt

09 PSYCHOTRON

(4:44)

Psychotron

Assassin in stealth, assailant from Hell
Impervious to damage
Computer on-board, engaged in a war
Non-stop combatant

Maybe not a mutant, maybe a man

Part bionic, and organic
Not a cyborg
Part bionic, and organic
Not a cyborg
Call him Psychotron

Burning inside, god speed in glide
Battle plan running
A killing machine, just downright mean
And forever gunning

Maybe not a mutant, maybe a man

Part bionic, and organic
Not a cyborg
Part bionic, and organic
Not a cyborg
Call him Psychotron
Part bionic, and organic
Not a cyborg
Part bionic, and organic
Not a cyborg
Call him Psychotron

Target to destroy, arms in employ
Full assault fire threat
Sensors indicate, you will terminate
Life systems disconnect

Part bionic, and organic
Not a cyborg
Part bionic, and organic
Not a cyborg
Call him Psychotron
Part bionic, and organic
Not a cyborg
Part bionic, and organic
Not a cyborg
Call him Psychotron

10 CAPTIVE HONOUR

(4:16)

Madness comes, and madness goes
An insane place, with insane moves
Battles without, for battles within
Where evil lives and evil rules
Breaking them up, just breaking them in
Quickest way out, quickest relief wins
Never disclose, never betray
Cease to speak or cease to breathe

And when you kill a man, you're a murderer
Kill many, and you're a conqueror
Kill 'em all, Ooh you're a God

Ladies and Gentlemen of the jury
Have you reached a verdict
Yes, we have Your Honour, we find the defendant Guilty
On all counts for crimes against all humanity
By virtue of the jury's decision and the power
Vested in me by the state I hereby sentence you to be
Incarcerated with no possibility of parole for life

Life?
What do you mean life
I ain't got a life

Boy, your soul better belong to Jesus
Hmmm-mmm cause your ass belongs to me

Captive honour, ain't no honour
Captive honour, ain't no honour

No time for questions, no time for the games
Start kicking ass, and taking down the names
A long shit list, a shorter fuse
He is untouchable and guarantees you'll lose

Captive honour, ain't no honour
Captive honour, ain't no honour

Inside the big house, his nightmare unfolds
Before he got there, his man pussy was sold
Black blanket welcome
This tough guy's now a bitch
Praying for death, it can't be worse than this

Captive honour, ain't no honour
Captive honour, ain't no honour

11 ASHES IN YOUR MOUTH

(6:11)

People have round shoulders from fairing heavy loads
And the soldiers liberate them, laying mines along their roads
Sorrow paid for valor, is too much to recall
Of the countless corpses piled up along the wailing wall

Melting down all metals, turning plows and sheaths to swords
Shun words of the Bible, we need implements of war
Chalk lines and red puddles of those who have been slain
Destiny, that crooked schemer, says the dead shall rise again

Where do we go from here?
And should we really care
The end is finally here
God have mercy

Now we've rewritten history
The one thing we've found out
Sweet taste of vindication
It turns to ashes in your mouth

Where do we go from here?
And should we really care
The end is finally here
God have mercy

If you're fighting to live
It's OK to die
The answer to your question is
Welcome to tomorrow

Where do we go from here?
God have mercy

Where do we go from here?
And should we really care
The end is finally here
God have mercy!
Where do we go from here?
And should we really care
The end is finally here
God have mercy

Mercy, mercy, mercy, mercy

12 CROWN OF WORMS

(3:18)

I am the author, dream up your pain
Drink as did bacchus, rebel just like cain
Lord of the city, I shall remain
All pandemonium, I shall reign
Sit in my fortress, up on my hill
Drinking the wine, till I've had my fill
Building up high, my castle walls
Oh, to veil my splendid fall

I present you, I present to you
I present you this crown of worms
I present you, I present to you
I present you this crown of worms, oh

Surrounding myself with mysery
Drawn curtains heavy of my history
Exquisite I am, perfect unity
On my left hand is false majesty
I feign affection, efute the true story
Dispute with creation, the lie is my glory
I care for no one, my gospel is death
For me the light's gone, only darkness is left

I present you, I present to you,
I present you this crown of worms
I present you, I present to you
I present you this crown of worms, oh

As black in deed, as cold as stone
A commandment of one, as proud as gold
As neglected in spirit, as time is old
As legion is numbers, as legend is told
I am alone, with the agony of truth
My power of will, my judgement and chain
My end is knowledge and conscience of guilt
My final confusion hidden from me till I'm done
