Hell Bound

Eliminate, the life decline...
I've paid the masters with blood and hunger
... And it's not for sale by any stretch.
It's like Religion without a bible
And the Dragon lives inside my mouth
And it speaks in tongues, the word...

(Chorus)
Hell Bound - in Ft. Worth Texas
x2

Snakes in Southern flames
To bring the thunder; the great decieder
would you believe in this or the ash?
I do believe it and it's taking over...
Accept

(Chorus)

Born to a world so young and proud
But over your head hangs a black cloud
Grow your hair and crawl inside yourself
Because there you cannot hide
Facing fears that you will overcome and one
of these years you know you've won

(Chorus)


Goddamn Electric

There is a part of me that's always sixteen
I've found the secret of eternal youth;
Some get high on life or money, but there's an
escape, drop out of the race.

-To walk through world by ones self, you can't be
protected... Your trust is in Whiskey, weed and
Black Sabbath- It's Goddamn Electric

(Chorus)
Don't waste your time, embrace it
and then you will know yourself
the change in you is Goddamn Electric

The weight of the world it's lifted and parted
My eyes roll blind to sight, that distracted
through tunnel vision a dope-hair blinders
I'll cut a path and evolve my will.

- To walk through the world by ones self, you can't be
protected... Your trust is in Whiskey, weed and
Slayer- It's Goddamn Electric

(Chorus)
Don't fake your life, inhale it
And then you'll know yourself
the change in you is Goddamn Electric
Don't waste your time, embrace it
And then you'll know yourself
the change that is Goddamn Electric will focus
the mind's eye...

One hand in the bottle, the other a shaking
fist, rejuvinated, yet isolated, no pressure
from the outside. My sight is Goddamn Electric
and these eyes have seen a world, an entire
Goddamn Electric system...

(Chorus)


Yesterday Don't Mean Shit

There's nothing special about it
It's either there when you're born or not
Gifted with talent are no big deal
Welcome to the death of a century...

(Chorus)
Cause yesterday don't mean shit
What's over is over and nothing between
Yesterday don't mean shit
Because tomorrow's the day you will have to face
There's no rewinding time
Because yesterday don't mean shit
Yesterday don't mean shit.

Reliving old reviews is a useless tool of confusion
Don't hold your breath for the turn-around
Come into the world of endless odds...

(Chorus)

(Mid)
They will tell you all about guilt
And in time you'll face the darkness...
But darkness is a friend to you
Embrace and fly through the madness
Flying past God and wars and conflict
The oppresser is in you x2
Plowing through minds and paranoia
The oppresser is in you x2

(Solo)
(Chorus)

You protect you and I'll keep to myself
It can only be that way.


You've Got to Belong to it

Build an inner door, drop and then explore
You smoke your head on straight, then drink
your woes away.
Some might not understand possession that's
beyond your head.

(Chorus)
You recognize it, while some ignore it
avoid the masses, you've got to belong to it.

So the music is your friend? Well it's the roof
above my head. So seriously I take the will
that never breaks.
Some might not understand, the possession that
control your hands...

(Chorus) x2

(Mid)
It's power and sin, and then you've got
Whiskey and smoke
and it's all a man could need, to plant the perfect
seed, to disembody me
(making more like you and me...)

(Chorus)


Revolution is my Name

68' I was into the world, born.
And the seventies were a breath after the war (Vietnam)
Life was confusing because of my age,
Should my eyes open for tomorrows gains?
I can't help the way I am
There's no trust and there's no end
What is my name?

(Chorus)
It will never change
So here it stays
Forever is my name...

From now on, I can't look the other way
But keep in mind, and listen to what I say
Take underwing all the ones who are lost
and build up around them an infinite wall
Don't you know just who I am?
Take the hand of wisdoms friend
What is my name?

(Chorus)
It's time to change
It can't stay the same
Revolution is my Name
It will never change
So here it stays
Forever is my name...
What is my name? Forever...
What is my name? Revolution...

(Chorus)


Death Rattle

Numbing rumble, countless medicines, depleted from
years of abuse
Death Rattle shaking
From years of compulsive mistaking
Death Rattle shakes x2

Disease of eyes, the addict blinfold, reduced to
the realms of death
Death Rattle shaking,
Accumulating life it's taking
Death Rattle shakes x4

(Mid)
I've seen the end, and there is no light.
Like deadly snakes, Death Rattle shakes

(Solo)

Death Rattle shakes x3


We'll Grind that Axe for a Long Time

Wears 10 crowns, dragons heads
Southern are the sons, the lords unmatched
-their eyes don't look right, should they be
trusted now?

Trash-mouthed Gods, avoided kings
With the spirit of revolt, (for) the ghost of youth.

(Chorus)
Every fucking year it stays the same
Everybody changes to suit the day
Out of pride I'll isolate my fears
(We've) never turned our backs on why we're here
We'll grind that axe for a long long time.

Follow close, the train of fools
Just like them (could be) just like you
-their eyes don't seem right.
'Easily impressed' plague, (for) dressed up fakes
(I have) no respect.

(Chorus)
Every fucking year remains the same
Everybody sucks-up to suit the day
Out of hate I'll isolate myself
Through the worst we still marched into Hell
We'll grind that axe for a long long time x4
The smell is in the air is chicken shit.

(Chorus)
Every fucking song remains the same
To everyone who sucks-up for the fame
Out of strength you know we speak the truth
Every trend that dies is living proof
We'll grind that axe for a long long time...


Uplift

On one whole bottle "uplifting!"
there is no telling what I'll do
Run head first into traffic
(with) a mind set of annihilation

No sense makes sense
You can't get bought without thought
No sense makes sense
You can't get bought without thought inside
of your head now...

(Chorus)
Uplift - Uplifting x2
On hallucinogenic "uplift"
I can step out of my body
(Find that) religion is in myself
I'll split my head in two and see you twice.

No sense makes sense
You can't get bought without thought
No sense makes sense
You can't get bought without thought
Inside of your head now

(Chorus)
Uplift - Uplifting x2
Give me alcohol extremities
Instead of proofless (101) christianity
Drunk deep in a coma state
Critics disgusted, but a smile is on my fucking face

I do anything that I want
I get everything that I ask
And if this message bothers you, you know
Just kiss my fucking asshole
Uplift x4


It Makes them Disappear

Gone...
The time had finally come to kill the vein.
And I'm dropping down the dirt on your grave
It might hurt so bad, but I can't feel sad
Rid of a fool like you
The wrath has just begun
The time has finally come
And it hurts so bad, and it drives you mad
Life with a blinded view (of you)

(Chorus)
It makes them disappear
It fills their lives with fear
When their future isn't clear
It makes them disappear.

-Gone-
So the coward has up and run to be saved
But with each step taken down, you sink in your grave
It might hurt so bad, but I can't feel sad
Rid of a fool like you

(Chorus)

Get the fuck on down the road

(Solo)
(Chorus)


I'll Cast a Shadow

The end will crush the light
and sends a message, (and) it won't please
the naked eye
Without an end there is no light
to foretell, or to blind you
The law of the claw reigns on and after still

(Chorus)
When I die, I'll cast a shadow
And I'll rise, I'll cast a shadow

I'm leaving more eyes open
(when) I close up both of mine
For the ones that chase my life
They're looking over shoulders
(They) let paranoia in
(So) spontaneously rule them

(Chorus) x2
