Battery



     Lashing out the action, returning the reaction
     Weak are ripped and torn away
     Hypnotizing power, crushing all that cower
     Battery is here to stay

          Smashing through the boundaries
          lunacy has found me
          cannot stop the Battery
          Pounding out aggression
          turns into obsession
          cannot kill the Battery

          Cannot kill the family
          Battery is found in me
           
          Battery

     Crushing all deceivers, mashing non-believers
     never ending potency
     Hungry violence seeker, feeding off the weaker
     Breeding on insanity

          Smashing through the boundaries
          lunacy has found me
          cannot stop the Battery
          Pounding out aggression
          turns into obsession
          cannot kill the Battery

          Cannot kill the family
          Battery is found in me
           
          Battery

     Circle of Destruction, Hammer comes crushing
     Powerhouse of energy
     Whipping up a fury, Dominating flurry
     We create the Battery

           
          Smashing through the boundaries
          lunacy has found me
          cannot stop the Battery
          Pounding out aggression
          turns into obsession
          cannot kill the Battery
           
          Cannot kill the family
          Battery is found in me
           
          Battery


Master Of Puppets



     End of passion play, crumbling away
     I'm your source of self-destruction
     Veins that pump with fear, sucking darkest clear
     Leading on your deaths construction
     Taste me you will see
     more is all you need
     you're dedicated to
     how I'm killing you

          Come crawling faster
          obey your Master
          your life burns faster
          obey your Master
          Master
          Master of Puppets I'm pulling your strings
          twisting your mind and smashing your dreams
          Blinded by me, you can't see a thing
          Just call my name, `cause I'll hear you scream
          Master
          Master
          Just call my name, `cause I'll hear you scream
          Master
          Master

     Needlework the way, never you betray
     life of death becoming clearer
     Pain monopoly, ritual misery
     chop your breakfast on a mirror
     Taste me you will see
     more is all you need
     you're dedicated to
     how I'm killing you

          Come crawling faster
          obey your Master
          your life burns faster
          obey your Master
          Master
          Master of Puppets I'm pulling your strings
          twisting your mind and smashing your dreams
          Blinded by me, you can't see a thing
          Just call my name, `cause I'll hear you scream
          Master
          Master
          Just call my name, `cause I'll hear you scream
          Master
          Master

     Master, Master, Where's the dreams that I've been after?
     Master, Master, You promised only lies
     Laughter, Laughter, All I hear and see is laughter
     Laughter, Laughter, laughing at my cries
     Hell is worth all that, natural habitat
     just a rhyme without a reason
     Neverending maze, drift on numbered days
     now your life is out of season

          Come crawling faster
          obey your Master
          your life burns faster
          obey your Master
          Master
          Master of Puppets I'm pulling your strings
          twisting your mind and smashing your dreams
          Blinded by me, you can't see a thing
          Just call my name, `cause I'll hear you scream
          Master
          Master
          Just call my name, `cause I'll hear you scream
          Master
          Master


The Thing That Should Not Be



     Messenger of Fear in sight
     Dark deception kills the light
      
     Hybrid children watch the sea
     Pray for Father, roaming free

          fearless Wretch
          insanity
          He watches
          lurking beneath the sea
          great Old One
          forbidden site
          He searches
          Hunter of the Shadows is rising

               immortal
               in madness You dwell

     Crawling Chaos, underground
     cult has summoned, twisted sound
      
     Out from ruins once possessed
     fallen city, living death
           
          fearless Wretch
          insanity
          He watches
          lurking beneath the sea
          great Old One
          forbidden site
          He searches
          Hunter of the Shadows is rising

               immortal
               in madness You dwell

     Not dead which eternal lie
     stranger eons Death may die
     drain you of your sanity
     face The Thing That Should Not Be
           
          fearless Wretch
          insanity
          He watches
          lurking beneath the sea
          great Old One
          forbidden site
          He searches
          Hunter of the Shadows is rising

               immortal
               in madness You dwell


Welcome Home (Sanitarium)



     Welcome to where time stands still
     no one leaves and no one will
     Moon is full, never seems to change
     just labeled mentally deranged
     Dream the same thing every night
     I see our freedom in my sight
     No locked doors, No windows barred
     No things to make my brain seem scarred
      
     Sleep my friend and you will see
     that dream is my reality
     They keep me locked up in this cage
     can't they see it's why my brain says Rage

          Sanitarium, leave me be
          Sanitarium, just leave me alone

     Build my fear of what's out there
     and cannot breathe the open air
     Whisper things into my brain
     assuring me that I'm insane
     They think our heads are in their hands
     but violent use brings violent plans
     Keep him tied, it makes him well
     he's getting better, can't you tell?

     No more can they keep us in
     Listen, damn it, we will win
     They see it right, they see it well
     but they think this saves us from our Hell

          Sanitarium, leave me be
          Sanitarium, just leave me alone
          Sanitarium, just leave me alone

     Fear of living on
     natives getting restless now
     Mutiny in the air
     got some death to do
     Mirror stares back hard
     Kill, it's such a friendly word
     seems the only way
     for reaching out again.


Disposable Heroes



     Bodies fill the fields I see, hungry heroes end
     No one to play soldier now, no one to pretend
     running blind through killing fields, bred to kill them all
     Victim of what said should be
     a servant `til I fall

          Soldier boy, made of clay
          now an empty shell
          twenty one, only son
          but he served us well
          Bred to kill, not to care
          just do as we say
          finished here, Greeting Death
          he's yours to take away
           

          Back to the front
          you will do what I say, when I say
          Back to the front
          you will die when I say, you must die
          Back to the front
          you coward
          you servant
          you blindman

     Barking of machinegun fire, does nothing to me now
     sounding of the clock that ticks, get used to it somehow
     More a man, more stripes you bare, glory seeker trends
     bodies fill the fields I see
     the slaughter never ends



          Soldier boy, made of clay
          now an empty shell
          twenty one, only son
          but he served us well
          Bred to kill, not to care
          just do as we say
          finished here, Greeting Death
          he's yours to take away
           

          Back to the front
          you will do what I say, when I say
          Back to the front
          you will die when I say, you must die
          Back to the front
          you coward
          you servant
          you blindman

     Why, Am I dying?
     Kill, have no fear
     Lie, live off lying
     Hell, Hell is here
      
     I was born for dying
      
     Life planned out before my birth, nothing could I say
     had no chance to see myself, molded day by day
     Looking back I realize, nothing have I done
     left to die with only friend
     Alone I clench my gun

          Soldier boy, made of clay
          now an empty shell
          twenty one, only son
          but he served us well
          Bred to kill, not to care
          just do as we say
          finished here, Greeting Death
          he's yours to take away
           

          Back to the front
          you will do what I say, when I say
          Back to the front
          you will die when I say, you must die
          Back to the front
          you coward
          you servant
          you blindman

Back to the front.


Lepher Messiah



     Spineless from the start, sucked into the part
     circus comes to town, you play the lead clown
     Please, please
     spreading his disease, living by his story
     Knees, knees
     falling to your knees, suffer for his glory
     You will

          Time for lust, time for lie
          time to kiss your life goodbye
          Send me money, send me green
          Heaven you will meet
          Make a contribution
          and you'll get a better seat
          Bow to Leper Messiah

     Marvel at his tricks, need your Sunday fix
     blind devotion came, rotting your brain
     Chain, chain
     Join the endless chain
     Fame, Fame
     Infection is the game, stinking drunk with power
     We see

          Time for lust, time for lie
          time to kiss your life goodbye
          Send me money, send me green
          Heaven you will meet
          Make a contribution
          and you'll get a better seat
          Bow to Leper Messiah

     Bow to Leper Messiah
     Witchery, weakening
     Sees the sheep are gathering
     set the trap, hypnotize
     now you follow

          Time for lust, time for lie
          time to kiss your life goodbye
          Send me money, send me green
          Heaven you will meet
          Make a contribution
          and you'll get a better seat
          Bow to Leper Messiah

     Lie.

Damage Inc.



     Dealing out the agony within
     charging hard and no one's gonna give in
     Living on your knees, conformity
     or dying on your feet for honesty
     Inbred, our bodies work as one
     bloody, but never cry submission
     Following our instinct not a trend
     go against the grain until the end

          Blood will follow blood
          Dying time is here
          Damage Incorporated

     Slamming through, don't fuck with razorback
     stepping out? You'll feel our hell on your back
     Blood follows blood and we make sure
     life ain't for you and we're the cure
     Honesty is my only excuse
     Try to rob us of it, but it's no use
     Steamroller action crushing all
     Victim is your name and you shall fall

          Blood will follow blood
          Dying time is here
          Damage Incorporated

     We chew and spit you out
     we laugh, you scream and shout
     All flee, with fear you run
     You'll know just where we come from

          Damage Incorporated

     Damage jackals ripping right through you
     sight and smell of this, it gets me goin'
     Know just how to get just what we want
     tear it from your soul in nightly hunt
     Fuck it all and fucking no regrets
     Never happy ending on these dark sets
     All's fair for Damage Inc. you see
     step a little closer if you please

          Blood will follow blood
          Dying time is here
          Damage Incorporated
