DEATH ROW

I'm dead meat - you took away my rights To be a part of your society A life-time in prison wouldn't justify You wanna blow away a sucker - so I have to die I'm still waiting for a final call I wanna meet my maker - I'm ready to go Kill me - kill me - kill me - please, kill me Give me a reason why you're gonna let me wait Some kind of punishment before you terminate You're taking my life for your peace of mind So let's go - start the show Death row - I'm ready to go - death row Let me die - let me go Death row - I'm ready to go - death row Let me die - let me go - death row I'm a dead man walking so get out of my face Rather die like a man than rotting this way I hate you and you hate me You can come and kiss my dignity You're taking my life for your peace of mind So let's go - start the show Death row - I'm ready to go - death row Let me die - let me go Death row - I'm ready to go - death row I'm ready to go - death row - death row Your justice is not mine You punish a crime with another crime If you need to kill me for your peace of mind Then let's go - start the show Death row - I'm ready to go - death row Let me die - let me go Death row - I'm ready to go - death row Let me die - let me go - Death row - open up 'cause here I come Death row -knock, knock, knocking I'm no hero's son Death row -there's no tears that you can sell Death row -paid my ticket through the gates of hell Death row - death row Let me die - let me go Death row - death row

SODOM AND GOMORRA

Ever since the stone-age Man's been on the hunt We were born to kill Fighting for survival All in self-defense It was do or die Now we're living in jungles The concrete age A maximum overdose of pleasure and pain Self-inflicted - life corrupting Antisocial - controversial - living in sin Sodom and Gomorra Let me tell you what I see Sodom and Gomorra Got no law and order Ruled by anarchy It's here to stay Chaos in the classroom Kids are killing kids Getting outta hand Mothers and fathers - the sickening ones Raping their children At the end of a gun Self-inflicted - life corrupting Antisocial - controversial - living in sin Sodom and Gomorra Let me tell you what I see Sodom and Gomorra We're in a burning hell for all eternity Sodom and Gomorra You mustn't look back To Sodom and Gomorra Don't you look back - to the essence of evil This universe of hatred Aggression is the force Heading for oblivion We're on collision-course Evolution's over The devil has prevailed Heaven screams for vengeance This is judgment day Self-inflicted - life corrupting Antisocial - controversial - living in sin Sodom and Gomorra Let me tell you what I see Sodom and Gomorra Forever ruled by anarchy Sodom and Gomorra Forever damned to purgatory Sodom and Gomorra

THE BEAST INSIDE

My mind is razor sharp And I'm wild-cat-mean I'd like to shred your face A danger to you When I feel the urge Deep down inside I lose my human touch I'm like a killing machine I want to resist - but can't hold it back The beast is unleashed - it's got to attack Again and again the force is too strong It's breaching the chains I've got the beast inside Never ever trust in me I've got the beast inside Craving a victim - it's telling me to kill I look through evil eyes Prowling in the streets In the dead of night I'm a man on the hunt I know my soul is under siege Can't somebody stop me now 'cause I'm losing control I've got the beast inside Don't you trust in me I know it must have been the beast inside It's driving me to kill It's gotta be the beast - the beast - the beast The beast - the beast - the beast - deep down inside But when the deed is done And the pain is gone I feel renewed within Until the voices return The beast - the beast - the beast The beast - the beast - the beast My mind is razor sharp And I'm wild-cat-mean I'd like to shred your face I've told you before When I feel the urge Deep down inside I lose my human touch I'm just a killing machine I want to resist - but can't hold it back The beast is unleashed - it's got to attack Again and again the force is too strong It's breaching the chains I've got the beast inside Never ever trust in me I know there is a beast inside Inside all of us I feel I've gotta beast inside I'm screaming for help from this monster within The beast inside - take a look at the mirror - it's staring at you Even at you - the beast inside

DEAD ON!

Zooming through the universe - on collision course A meteor from outer space - gonna smash the earth Head down to the trenches - to watch the bloody war Nothing's gonna stop - the metal dinosaurs Runaway train lost control - a thousand tons of steel Overheated engines - the screaming of the wheels A fighter in a boxing ring - takes the final blow Opponent's on the canvas - lost by t. k. o. Dead on - in a head-on collision Dead on - like a hammer and the nail Dead on - in a head-on collision Dead on - like a hammer and the nail From Belfast to Jerusalem - it's a living hell Tuzla to Afghanistan - fighting tooth and nail Death is irreversible - no matter what we try Life is not recyclable - we are born to die Dead on - in a head-on collision Dead on - like a hammer and the nail Dead on - in a head-on collision Dead on - like a hammer and the nail He was a teen spirit idol - loaded up his veins He couldn't stand the pressure - so he terminates his brains A renegade Red Indian - they called Geronimo Cracked the white man's head - like a raging buffalo Dead on - in a head-on collision Dead on - like a hammer and the nail Dead on - in a head-on collision Dead on - like a hammer and the nail Dead on - in a head-on collision Dead on - like a hammer and the nail Dead on - in a head-on collision Dead on - like a hammer and the nail

LIKE A LOADED GUN

I'm victimized and tantalized Brutalized and chained They'll devastate - intoxicate They're driving me insane - forever They regulate - investigate Complicate my life Everyday insanity There's nothing going right - I mean forget it I've been there before Can't take it no more That's why I'm like a loaded gun A man with a mission Like a loaded gun I'm human ammunition They mutilate and penetrate They masturbate my brains When all I need for sanity Is love to ease my pain I'm tortured sick and tired I'm that weapon to be fired Overloaded - unexploded Don't you make me cross the final line I've been there before I can't take it no more That's why I'm like a loaded gun I'm a man with a mission Like a loaded gun You can pull my trigger Just like a loaded gun On a social collision See my eyes - I mesmerize Read my lips - it's time to cut the crap I've been there before I can't take it no more That's why I'm like a loaded gun A man with a mission Like a loaded gun I'm human ammunition Like a loaded gun On a social collision Like a loaded gun I'm ready to explode - like a loaded gun

WHAT ELSE

Heroes - keep dying Nations - dividing Principles - they're gone It's war Wallstreet - buy in politics Jesus - up for sale Do anything - for money I'm a whore What else - what's in it for me What else What else - what's in it for me What else Deadlines - headlines Make me - the biggest star I don't need personality 'cause it's war I'm greedy - I'm deadly Don't give a fuck anymore Anything for money I'm a whore What else - what's in it for me What else What else - what's in it for me What else What else - what's in it for me What else What else - what's in it for me What else

STONE EVIL

They terrorize and tyrannize democracies Their narrow minds still nothing learned from history The seeds of hate acquired from their ancestry Spreading like a cancer in societies They've got the poison inside Rivers of pesticide Skin-headed minions - they're deaf, dumb and blind Machine-like in body robotic in mind Stone-evil - inherited sin Stone evil - infected from within They can't leave it - they can't break the spell Under orders to obey It was meant to last a thousand years It took the world into dismay Stone evil - stone evil If you're gonna throw the torch at us Don't expect to not get burned It's time to stand - and fight the right This is the lesson we have learned They're marching to a different beat and glorify The darkest times when innocent were crucified They paralyze and sterilize the mass's minds They desecrate man's dignity - desensitize They've got the poison inside Rivers of pesticide Skin-headed minions - they're deaf, dumb and blind Machine-like in body robotic in mind Stone-evil - inherited sin Stone evil - infected from within Stone-evil - inherited sin Stone evil

BAD HABITS DIE HARD

One step forward - two steps back We're living on the edge - it's as simple as that I'm no Mr. Lucky - I've never been close I'm higher than some - but I'm lower than most Just when you thought that you'd got it made The bitch draws blood again You sow as you reap = the same mistakes Buddy ring the bell - begin the game Bad habits - bad habits die hard Bad habits - bad habits die hard I'm stuck in a rut - but I'm burning inside I am what I am - just a low-down bum Always end up in trouble - just trying to be good But with tumbling dice - the sixes will come Bad habits - bad habits die hard I know I got a lot of bad habits - bad habits die hard I bet you got 'em too One step forward - two steps back I get caught in the middle - nailed to the rack Got a load of bad habits - corrupted within I'm a freak of nature - full of voices and sins Just when you thought that you'd got it made The bitch draws blood again You sow as you reap = the same mistakes Buddy ring the bell - begin the game Bad habits - bad habits die hard Bad habits - bad habits die hard I know I got a lot of bad habits - bad habits die hard Everybody's got bad habits - bad habits die hard

PREJUDICE

We grow and fertilize the semen of hate Ignoring our ignorance - daring our fate Predictions were made - generations were lost While the seed is growing day by day in front of us We buried tolerance and our respect Became a breeding ground for social dismay Whatever happened to our love-generation With black and white hand in hand side by side So preacher don't you preach Hey teacher don't you teach Prejudice - stop the hate No more prejudice - I ain't losing my faith Prejudice - stop the hate No more prejudice - I ain't losing my faith If we could manage just to get along Instead of blaming each other for what's going wrong Education is the secret - the future's in our hands Burn the fields of hate and believe again Teacher don't you teach Preacher don't you preach So teacher don't you teach me Hey preacher don't you preach Prejudice - stop the hate No more prejudice - I ain't losing my faith Prejudice - stop the hate No more prejudice - I ain't losing my faith Prejudice - prejudice Judging one another by the colour of skin Carefully covering our feelings within We solve our problems with a kick in the face We're living in a world judged by colour and race So preacher don't you preach Hey teacher don't you teach me Prejudice - stop the hate No more prejudice - I ain't losing my faith Prejudice - stop the hate No more prejudice - I ain't losing my faith Prejudice - stop the hate - prejudice Prejudice - stop the hate - prejudice

BAD RELIGION

As long as I remember - I was left all by myself When trouble crossed my way I stood alone My old man hit the bottle - my mom was running scared The old forgotten prayers turned to stone I'm searching for identity - I don't know who I am The past has cast the shadow over me Like a bad religion - the only one I know I never had no shelter - never had a place to go A bad religion - my life is make-believe Bad religion - I'm begging for relief I tried to break the circle - to break the vicious spell Bur the past is always heavy on my mind I'm dancing with the devil - a dangerous romance A daring way to leave it all behind I'm searching for identity - I don't know who I am The past has cast the shadow over me Like a bad religion - the only one I know I never had no shelter - never had a place to go A bad religion - my life is make-believe Bad religion I need someone to talk to - someone to understand I need a friend to lend a helping hand I'm gonna pull myself together - shed this battered skin I'm ready for the challenge - this loser's out to win Like a bad religion - the only one I know I never had no shelter - never had a place to go A bad religion - my life is make-believe Bad religion - I'm begging for relief - bad religion

GENERATION CLASH II

Warnings surround you That life ain't long Same old stories You've heard 'em before They tell you to listen To be like they've been You carry a burden Whatever you do They never approve of The things that you do Revolution In the heart of your home But what do they do To comfort you At times when you don't feel alright Generation Clash Generation Clash - you got the guts to go Bitching forever For wasting time You better not worry You're doing alright They tell you to listen To be like they've been But what do they do To comfort you At times when you don't feel alright Generation Clash Generation Clash - you got the guts to go Generation Clash - kiss those times goodbye Generation Clash - you got the guts to go Generation Clash Generation Clash - you got the guts to go Generation Clash - kiss those times goodbye - the times are gone for good Generation Clash - you got the guts to go Generation Clash - oh, it's the generation clash Generation Clash - nothing ventured nothing gained - so get alive Generation Clash...

WRITING ON THE WALL

A thousand years from now on The flame of life's gone out The earth - a frozen wasteland No living trace - no sounds The world did die in anguish The ashes turned to dust Fire and ice - blackness of night Man's evolution has lost Don't tell me that we didn't know And that we haven't been told The final S.O.S. we all ignored We've seen the writing on the wall The writing on the wall The science of the madman Was getting out of control For every creature comfort There is a heavy toll We turned on mother nature Stabbed her deep in a back We ripped out her lungs - poisoned her veins Internal acid attack Don't tell me that we didn't know And that we never been told The final S.O.S. we all ignored We've seen the writing on the wall The writing on the wall Seen the writing on the wall I'm just painting a picture Of how it could be But time's running out - the clock's ticking down You're not blind - can't you see Don't tell me that we still don't know And that we're not being told The final S.O.S. we shouldn't ignore Just read the writing on the wall The writing on the wall Read the writing on the wall The writing on the wall
