OBJECTION OVERRULED

Members of the jury Your conclusion has been drawn Defendants should be sentenced But you just let'em go The city is a timebomb The judge has lit the fuse Vigilante breakout Gotta tighten up the noose Your honour please We want the truth - nothing but the truth Your honour please Objection overruled - let's hang'em high Overruled - horsewhip'em I call upon the nation To take the witness stand Too long you've stood in silence Now justice will be done Hey you - the jury members You let the people down We trusted your sincerity One finger at the law Your honour please We want the truth - nothing but the truth Your honour please Objection overruled - let's hang'em high Overruled - horsewhip'em The judge's hammer falls Eruption in the court room The cry goes up: "It's anarchy!" Just stick your bloody rules The judge's hammer falls Let's loot them out of office Some heads are gonna roll The cry goes up: "It's anarchy!" Your honour please We want the truth - nothing but the truth Objection overruled - let's hang'em high Overruled - horsewhip'em Objection overruled - this is a travesty of justice Overruled - appeal to higher court Objection overruled - let's take it to the senate Overruled - in the name of sanity Objection overruled - are you crazy Overruled - are you crazy Objection overruled !

I DON'T WANNA BE LIKE YOU

Heaven knows Heaven knows I tried To be like you To be a part of you tribe I'd rather leave it all behind But that's alright I'm not your average type No Mr. Clean - hey I wanna be me Can't you see - I'm the exception to the rule I know what I want And I know I'm gonna get it That is why - I'm the exception to the rule Don't push me too far The way I am is just because I don't wanna be like you I don't wanna be like you The walls can be shaking The earth could be quaking I still don't wanna be like you I'm hog-tied'n'dirty I'm tough and mean Keep your Wall Street slickers And the American dream You ('ve) done me over and over You ('ve) tried to tie me down Why don't you step out of the shadows Dare to roll the dice Let it roll - and don't you push me around Can't you see - I'm the exception to the rule I know what I want And I know I'm gonna get it That is why - I'm the exception to the rule Don't push me too far The way I am is just because I don't wanna be like you I don't wanna be like you - never ever ! The walls can be shaking The earth could be quaking But I still don't wanna be like you The ordinary way of life ain't for me I do what I want and I wanna be free Never know, where I go or what I'm gonna do Why can't you see - the only thing I know is that I don't wanna be like you I don't wanna be like you If the oceans turn to desert Hell can turn to ice But I still don't wanna be like you I don't wanna be like you I don't wanna be like you - no way ! The walls can be shaking The earth could be quaking But I still don't wanna be like - you !

PROTECTORS OF TERROR

They are protectors of terror They are protectors of terror They're in the business of illusion An empire built on pain The Almighty's inquisition They're a fire burning out of control A thousand years of praying Of faith, morality A thousand years of slaying Of terror in the name of the cross Will you pray - will you cry Thou shalt not bear the false witness When brothers in faith Turn to brothers in arms Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven images How many more have to die They are protectors of terror They are protectors of terror You pay for your salvation You have to bend your knees in pain No surrender to temptation You're a slave to the eye of the Lord Will you pray - will you cry Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain When brothers in faith Turn to brothers in arms Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour's oxen How many more have to die They are protectors of terror They are protectors of terror They are protectors of terror - they are protectors They are protectors of terror Fear not those who dare to tread upon the ashes of the chosen ones They will drink the spillage of the blood Behind closed doors the darkest one prepares his altar of death They are protectors - will you pray - will you cry Of terror - when brothers in faith turn to brothers in arms They are protectors - how many more have to die Laws carved in stone are rewritten in blood They are protectors of terror They are protectors of terror They are protectors of terror - they are protectors They are protectors of terror They are protectors of terror

SLAVES TO METAL

We hold the seeds of metal And we scatter them around We'll eat you up - and spit you out Like a pack of wolves on the hunt We are the kings of madness We are the sons of evil Burning down every house We are the metal gladiators Unchain the beast and let it loose Come raise your hands and shout it out We want it now we want it loud 'cause we are slaves to metal - locked into the taste of steel Slaves to metal - we'll march you to the beat We are slaves to metal - chained up to the sound Slaves to metal - we'll rock you to the ground - so evil Born to be the bloodhounds In the legions of the damned A million miles of madnesses On the battleground of screaming guitars Will you taste the sweat of metal Will you lick the open wounds It's the ultimate commandment Which will never guarantee your doom Come raise your hands and shout it out We want it now we want it loud 'cause we are slaves to metal - locked into the taste of steel Slaves to metal - we'll march you to the beat We are slaves to metal - chained up to the sound Slaves to metal - we'll rock you to the ground 'cause we are slaves to metal - locked into the taste of steel Slaves to metal - we'll march you to the beat We are slaves to metal - chained up to the sound Slaves to metal - we'll rock you to the ground Slaves to metal

ALL OR NOTHING

Revolution in the streets Our vision turned into reality Too late to stop it now A spark that's lit a fire burning high It's time to take a stand Stand up for your rights and beliefs Together we'll be strong - we're gonna fight them all We got the power - to turn the world around It's all or nothing - and we don't stop fighting All or nothing - and we won't back down It's all or nothing - we can light a fire All or nothing - we will take it all No matter what you are No matter where you're from and where you go There's a place for all of you Side by side - we can only win No turning back the time The force is growing day by day No wall is high enough - no chain too strong We got the power - to double back around It's all or nothing - and we don't stop fighting All or nothing - and we won't back down It's all or nothing - we can strike a fire All or nothing - we will take it all - we will take it all It's all or nothing - let us break the silence All or nothing - we will shout it out It's all or nothing - so we'll strike a fire All or nothing It's all or nothing - and we don't stop dreaming All or nothing - and we won't back down It's all or nothing - we won't stop believing All or nothing - we will take it all - we will have it all

BULLETPROOF

We called it this - he called it that But never what it was We called it shit - we called it grass That's the way it was He took it once - just for the thrill He'd bought a ticket to ride We laughed about - the jokes he told He was one of the boys Hey, what a guy - he used to be When he was sober and dry Smoky nights - Gloomy lights He was high as a kite When he turned into the demon No way to calm it down Just like a Jekyl and Hide He wasn't bulletproof - He shot himself the final round No man is bulletproof - it's destination underground Too many journeys - on acid trains Too many trips - on the astral plane Danced with Lucy in the sky On a cloud of ecstasy Too late to stop him now Even sacrifice his mother Turn against his only friend To reach the ultimate high He wasn't bulletproof - Shot himself the final round No man is bulletproof - It's destination underground Bulletproof - The chief is your medicine-man No man is bulletproof - He's gonna drug you down He thought that he could fly That he could reach the sky But he went up too high - oh, so high He kissed the ground - goodbye He wasn't bulletproof - Shot himself the final round No man is bulletproof - Destination underground Bulletproof - The chief is your medicine-man No man is bulletproof - He's gonna drug you down

AMAMOS LA VIDA

In times of peace Times of war The sky remains the same You reach for the stars too far away The one who's born in misery Is left without a chance But still holding on to naked life Amamos la vida Amamos la vida What a time - what a place For someone who's lost It's hard to survive In the jungle of life Amamos la vida Amamos la vida Is there someone to hear me Is there no one to see Is there someone to hear me Doesn't anybody care A single tear in the river of life The gods have turned their backs Today a face - that you don't know And tomorrow it's you Amamos la vida A single tear in the river of life Amamos la vida Amamos la vida

SICK, DIRTY AND MEAN

He's got the power - he's like a god But he's a devil of flesh and blood A '45 is his religion - code of silence his belief It's a kiss of death A '45 is his religion - code of silence his belief You can find them in the gutter You will find'em in your church They always know each other They call it family You may end up six-feet-under Anywhere and anytime It's a one-way-street with a thousand lanes And a million ways to die A Thompson sub-machine gun made my day Sick, dirty and mean You can hide but you can't run Sick, dirty and mean Headhunters cut you down A godfather's kiss - an icepick in your eye Sick, dirty and mean It's like a killing machine Can you hear your mother crying Can you see your father die Can you walk away from children Dying facedown in the dirt But if you break a code of silence You gotta do it all away If you don't stop the violence The mob is here to stay A pair of concrete slippers - they're all vultures all over your back Sick, dirty and mean You can hide but you can't run Sick, dirty and mean Headhunters cut you down They will terminate your contract - they will finalize the deal Sick, dirty and mean It's a killing machine A '45 is his religion - code of silence his belief It's a double barreled shotgun with an Ouzi on the side Sick, dirty and mean You can hide but you can't nun Sick, dirty and mean Head-hunters cut you down If you wanna be a songbird - there's an axe to clip your wings Sick, dirty and mean It's a killing machine Sick, dirty and mean Sick, dirty and mean Sick, dirty and mean Sick, dirty and mean

JUST BE MY OWN

/* Instrumental */

THIS ONE'S FOR YOU

I can't wait much longer Revenge is overdue You took your chance and screwed me Way back in '82 Inside my hate is burning My brain's on overload My innocence is over Now I'm ready to explode I'm gonna be your nemesis - I like it when you scream I'm the mother of your nightmares - got a contract to redeem This one's for you - right in your face Just sit on this and spin around This one's for you - your time is up Stick it - shove it - where the sun don't shine You've always been a wise guy You played at being rough I stripped away your masquerade And now you ain't so tough You're a coward with no backbone I will crush you with my heel Put the scrapings in my blender Add some bourbon - what a meal I'm gonna be your nemesis - I like it when you scream I'm the mother of your nightmares - got a contract to redeem This one's for you - right in your face Just sit on this and spin around This one's for you - I hold the ace Stick it - shove it This one's for you - right in your face Just sit on this and spin around This one's for you - a bunch of fives Stick it - shove it This one's for you - right in your face Just sit on this and spin around This one's for you -no one but you Stick it - shove it - where the sun don't shine
