Mission N° X

Reporting for the duty There’s fever in our blood The target is still locked on No. X has just begun Raise your arms for rhythm Join and swell the ranks Wear the badge with honour We don’t fire blanks Million tons of passion Breathing down your backs Turning on the systems Power up your packs Come and join our mission – Mission No. X Come and join our mission – Mission No. X The mission is to conquer We give it in the raw Never taking prisoners Defenders of the law Raise your hands in fire Standing back to back Machinery of metal Code X is the attack

24/7

I’m gonna blow your mind And push you higher I have my way to find And nail the liar You want it cleaner – I make it meaner Anyway you want You’re gonna squeeze it – you’re gonna please it Always on the hunt Come on and roll it – so fucking hold it – move your ass Come on and scream it – we fucking mean it – living fast You know we live it – 24/7 Twenty-four hours – seven days a week You know we give it – 24/7 Twenty-four hours – seven days a week I’m gonna kick you hard You want disaster We only take it rough And tough and faster You want it cleaner – I make it meaner Right between the eyes You’re gonna squeeze it – you’re gonna please it Always pay the price

Mean Streets

For God’s sake – you’re just like a brother For God’s sake – not like any other For God’s sake – you’re not just another man For God’s sake – there’s no way of knowing For God’s sake – there’s no way of showing For God’s sake – it’s not just another crime Down in the streets – it’s just dirty and mean Down in the streets – we’re just living in fear Down in the streets – we’re gonna burn and fry ‘cause we’re living in mean streets Mean streets We’re living in mean streets Mean streets For God’s sake – we can’t keep a going For God’s sake – we reap what we are sowing For God’s sake – it’s not just another time For God’s sake – another dead brother For God’s sake – they’re all motherfuckers For God’s sake – there’s no way to heal the blind Down in the streets – dirty and mean Down in the streets – living in fear Down in the streets – we’re gonna burn and fry Down in the streets – we’re gonna take you high

Eye Of The Eagle

Mother nature comforts us Embraces to her breast Fields of gold and icy plains We feel her great caress Cocooned by earthly majesty A cosmic jewel in time Surrounded by a giving sun It's good to be alive Pasture lands and silver streams Finger through the land Magnify the hopes and dreams Moving living sand Canyons wind and trembled winds Mountains touch the sky It's nature's breath we all depend It's good to be alive Oh – the eye of the eagle Oh – finds it all Oh – the eye of the eagle Oh – sees it all Sounds of silence fill the air A diamond in your palm The elements in harmony Innocent and calm So stand alone and touch the stars Heaven will be kind Feel the love of brotherhood So good to be alive Towering woods of dignity Oceans giving birth Arose a host of energy A hail to mother earth Never blind the eagles' eyes Keep wind beneath their wings Living free and soaring high Good to be alive

Primecrime On Primetime

The updates of the anchorman And Reuters breaking news Information fills the waves With different points of view The breakfast table battleground Surplus overload No matter what is on the screen We hammer on and on See the primecrime on primetime That is the lifestyle on T.V. See the primecrime on primetime Another deadline – headline – on the screen A hijack and a bomber’s car A killer going free A multimillion bank account Simply disappeared A tanker lost and ran aground A train came off the track An innocent just standing by A victim of attack Oh – no – yes - more The flooding of our heritage Hurricanes at sea Mighty mountains detonate For all the world to see Ignoring all catastrophes Until it’s at your door Microphone and cameraman You’re the news at four

Shell Shock Fever

We hit your mind We hit your soul One of a kind Always more and more Thunder above Lightening below We’re overhead Nowhere else to go Please, take my hand It’s so hard to stand Never surrender – no time Day after day The game is to stay Open your heart and you’ll feel ... Shell shock fever Shell shock fever – and we give you a high Shell shock fever Shell shock fever – and we light up the sky We won’t give up Don’t take the crap Over and out Take it high and low We deal the dice Join in the game Make you alive Turning on and on

Stone Hard

I’ve been around and done some things But I am proud of what I’ve been Some call me many different names You’ll burn in hell when you touch my pain And when the lights begin to blind I raise my fist for my own kind If you could see what I have seen I’m just a waking – breaking – taking – living machine I’ll come to you – in the night So hear my scream – I’ll take my rights We’re godforsaken – we are stone hard Wrecking the rules for our family We’re on a mission for the stone hard We are free and we’ll always be I’ve been allowed to do my thing And all the things should not have been So many see me different ways And passion kills the end of my days And when the insides come alive I see reflections of my life If you could see what I have seen I’m just an earthquake terror making rocking machine

Number For A Number

Detrimental assets Money down the drain Cash in all their pockets Ride the gravy train Playing at casinos Yachts and caviar Mistresses and champagne Apartments and fast cars Dehumanise resources Fix the budget plan A grey suit revolution Hide the paper trail You take a number for a number Take a penny for a dime A number for a number Another dirty crime Capital expenditure Global energy Upsize all the markets Cost is misery Siphon off the excess Secretive accounts Documents and contracts Third world body count

Cry Soldier Cry

Cold wind in the morning A telegram arrives Arriving with no warning Another mother cries Husbands, sons and brothers Hailed the call to war Blinded by the others The promise – one for all What’s it all in aid of Obeying the command Cold and tired and hungry Dying for some land Why don’t you cry, soldier, cry Another letter – you should know better Cry, soldier, cry There will be sorrow – until tomorrow So cry, soldier, cry The fear and all the sadness Of what it has become In this world of madness Another soldier gone Salute the highest honour The folding of the flag Finally the end is Another bodybag And all the time your comrades Their backs against the wall A band of brothers fighting One by one they fall

BREAKING DOWN THE BORDERS

We’re revving up – we’re coming through We’re breaking out – just for you Ripping up – and all that crap We’re gonna make – the better map So here we are We’re here for good So listen up Take our word forever We’re on the move – we’re on the ball We’re gonna feed – your hungry soul No matter who – no matter where Be it here – or be it there Breaking down the borders Breaking all the chains No more law and order Breaking down the pain We’re gonna fight – and gonna win No matter what – we won’t give in It was them – who made the rules They’re the ones – who are the fools

Mad For Crazy

I’m mad – mad for crazy – I’m made to rock Still mad for crazy – rolling to the top Mad for crazy – I’m made to rock Still mad for crazy – rolling to the top I had some bad times But I had good I had some sad times But we all should I need the action I need the ride That’s satisfaction On overdrive Just take look in my eyes Take it – you won’t be surprised And all the nonsense inside Nothing will stop ‘cause I’m still Mad for crazy – I’m made to rock Still mad for crazy – rolling to the top Mad for crazy – I’m made to rock Still mad for crazy – rolling to the top I feel the power So look inside I need the madness So step aside I am a racer Adrenaline Cut like a razor So sharp and mean

Scream Killers

There are secrets better left alone Like Pandora’s box Throw away the master key High-tech fantasies And the mystery of our history Stories been untold Some words have been classified Hide the danger code The scream to stop they silence They’re working on to win Blinded by their science They carry on the sin Scream killers – right and always wrong Scream killers They are the scream killers – always go too far Scream killers Universal energy The world is not enough Science of insanity ‘n’ one day time is up And they all dismiss the reason why Playing with our fate Cast away the destiny Stop – or it’s too late Corruptible intruders Seed the dragon’s lair Exposing generations Fall out’s in the air Scientific meddling Technology unleashed Microbotic phasing The helix of the beast Even if there is a master code Deep inside within Follow nature’s symphony The only way to win And the time has come to turn the game Make your final choice Listen to your heart and soul Mind the inner voice

Way Of life

I’ve been away from home Was out of sight No other change has come Who let the boredom in We got our rocking rights We’ll overcome The mirror never lies We’ll show ‘em how it’s done We always dress in black To be unkind We always dress in black With you in mind It’s the way of life we live You know where we are coming from It’s the way of life we live in We are the strong We never will deceive Take no double-talk And all the fat cats bull Don’t like the way we walk They spit behind our backs Unwelcomed class But it’s way down deep They wanna be like us It’s the way of life we live You know where we are coming from It’s the way of life we live in And we’re not wrong ‘cause it’s the way of life we live You know where we are coming from It’s the way of life we live in We are the strong
