01. Impact is Imminent

You wouldn't take a taxi
You said you couldn't stay
You drink and drink and drive
Almost every day
Your life speeds through your mind
Faster than you drive
Living on a shoestring
All your fucking life
Your friends say you need help
You tell them that you're fine
As you tip the bottle
And swallow some cheap wine
You're a living time bomb
Waiting to explode
You'll just be a statistic
When you're dead and cold!

Every time you drink and drive
You always think that you'll survive
Till your car is crushed and bent
Impact is imminent
Sirens fill the streets aloud
It always draws the biggest crowd
They peel your body off cement
Impact is imminent!

The daily obituaries reveal
More and more fools climbed behind the wheel
Thinking they were sober enough to drive
They didn't know they'd never come back alive
A bad case of double vision
Led straight onto a head-on collision
Passed out and crossed the double line
How can anyone be so asinine?

Blind drunk and hauling ass
He got airborne off an overpass
He never knew he left the ground
Like a warhead target bound
You can't correct your fatal mistake
When you're the guest of honor at your own wake
Thought he could fly till he hit cement
Impact is imminent!

Drunken time bombs set to detonate
When happy hour's over they're off to celebrate
Their vision's but a blur, they barely see the road
Been drinking for so long they're starting to erode
A fucking drunken lush climbs into his car
Kills you in an instant coming from the bar
An alcoholic bum hits you from behind
A child and his mother run down in their prime!


02. A.W.O.L

Decorated in war
A.U.S. ambassador
Caught in selling secrets
To a foreign conspirator
Pledged his allegiance to
The red, white and the blue
As government secrets turn to revenue
He shredded documents
Restricted and confident
Then he got caught
The proof was evident
Traitor to the cause
He broke our highest laws
So why is he still greeted
With the big applause?

American disgrace
Patriot gone to waste
He took a little taste
And had to have it all
Betrayed the fatherland
The flag and all for which it stands
Desertion was the plan he chose to call
American disgrace
Patriot gone to waste
Greed was his demise when he took the fall
Betrayed the fatherland
The flag and all for which it stands
Traitor to the cause
A.W.O.L.!

Now a media star
The whole thing is so bizarre
How this turncoat's rich from seminars
Paying out their ass to see
A man who sold out to greed
A Benedict Arnold who made the nation bleed
New book's a bestseller
T.V. movie in the cellar
Unpatriotic asshole
Should be a prison dweller
Iron clad alibi
Nothing but a pack of lies
Just another felon
Wearing a disguise!


03. The Lunatic Parade

Look at all the freaks!
Lined up head to head
They wait for out arrival
Some are here for the show
Some are here to watch
And some to preach the bible
Hats off to the faithful
That come to waltz with us
They're doing what they wanna
Come on to the next show
Parade along with us
You won't be forgotten
You won't be forgotten

Listen to the freak show
Shouting to our songs
They sound like charging rhino
A place to meet an old friend
A place to meet some new
You can always follow
You wanna meet the clowns
When the circus comes to town?
Gather all around!
We'll remember all of you
Unless our crew dismembers you!

Come in from hell or wherever you came
Slums of the world are to us all the same
Step up and join us now and don't be afraid
Our party's starting to become a charade!
Lunatics everywhere will all act the same
And when the sideshow starts there's no one to blame
There's no one left, the town is having a raid
They all have joined us in our lunatic parade!

You wanna meet the clowns
When the circus comes to town?
Gather all around!
Come on to the next show
Parade along with us
You won't be forgotten!


04. Within The Walls Of Chaos

Murder, drugs, cash, and greed
It touches everyone and everything
Within the walls there's no escaping the disease
Sidwalks turn to pharmacies
All the pimps and pushers territories
Dollars pouring in from the victims trapped within
Schoolyard's a place of sorrow
Pray your children live to see tomorrow
A place where mothers cry, and kiss their dying sons goodbye
Living in a state of fear
Afraid of everything they see or hear
Someone they love may get shot
For drugs they never even bought!

Violence is a way of life
Revenge delivered with a gun or knife
Paybacks are a bitch
They'll leave you dying in a ditch
Caught in the hypnotic spell
Their life's story they'll never life to tell
In a hazy curtain, they can't see the end is certain
Imprisoned by narcotic chains
Life for some will never be the same
Trapped in walls of glass
Hoping that this all will pass
But some will find their way outside
Face the evil, eyes open wide
Break the bonds that pull you in
Escape the hell that thrives...

Within the walls
Of chaos and despair
Most are unemployed
Living on welfare
Prowling the halls
The vultures come to feed
On the flesh of those
Who are enslaved to the need
The final curtain falls
And no one sheds a fear
Their pleas for help always seem to fall
Upon deaf ears
Within the walls of chaos they forgot
That dignity and sanity
Are things that can't be bought

With every passing day
Another life is cast astray
Wear the wrong colors
And you might get blown away

Turn of a page
Another name's crossed off the list
Shot between the eyes
With a rig clenched in his fist

Driven to the grave
Ruled by need for kicks
Extract their own gold teeth
To satisfy their fix

There's cracks in the foundation
The time will soon arrive
When the walls will crumble down
And bury everyone alive!

Within the walls...
Within the walls of chaos...
Within the walls...
Within the walls of chaos...
Within the walls...
Within the walls of chaos!


05. Objection Overruled

All rise and come to order
Bailiff start the video recorder
You've been sworn, what's your complaint?
Speak up son, don't hesitate!
He presided in his courtroom so long ago
He was hanging cowboys for stealing buffalo
Court is adjourned, for his honor's feeling ill
The shaking old relic needs a glycerin pill!

Hang up your rope 'cause you're looking tired
If it was up to me they'd all be fired
Day after day convicting all those liars
This ain't TV jail
It's TV hell!

Believe it or not
Those walking blood clots
Make enough money for a thousand foot yacht
Who in Hollywood
Did they every acquit?
Just senile, judicial idiots
As the drama unfolds
And the law he upholds
If you look real close
You could see him growing mold
Small claims messiah
Is only a pariah to be ridiculed...
Objection Overruled!

All rise as he takes the bench
To hear his old voice make my gut wrench
Silence to those who are in his court
I'm found guilty by his report
No washed-up judge can say to me
The shit he throws arround when he's on TV
What can he fucking do, throw me in jail?
I'd slap out his dentures, post them for bail!

Hang up your robe 'cause you're looking tired
If it was up to me they'd all be fired
Day after day convicting all those liars
This ain't TV jail, it's TV hell!

You lose the case
To a bigger bullshit they you today
When it comes to the end
You tell all of TV land what you've got to say
When you're dead and gone
Will they get another fossil to carry on?
They must go to school
To hand-pick these old fools
I say to you
Objection Overruled!
It's all Perry Mason's fault!
Cat strangling


06. Only Death Decides

Sinner, cheater, liar
Made your living till the day you retired
Stealing, taking, using, and abusing
Now for all your sins that you are accused of
Cruelty, greed, dishonesty, and hate
Forever locked outside the pearly gates
Begging, praying, pleading, and bleeding
Won't extinguish the fire you're feeling!
They say when you die you go to hell
But when you're dead it's too late to tell you
You're left to rot in your wooden cell
Am I in Heaven, or am I in Hell?
Am I in Heaven, or am I just in Hell?

Only death decides for sure
Don't you know only death decides...
Where you go!

Pain, sadness, fear
Is all you've ever given throughout the years
Thievery, intimidation, and assault
Tools of the trade until death puts a halt
Because you're deceiving, unfeeling, and misleading
The world is final, there's no use in appealing
The culmination and sudden realization
It's all real, no hallucination!

They say when you die you go to hell
But when you're dead it's too late to tell you
You're left to rot on your wooden cell
Am I in Heaven, or am I in Hell?
Am I in Heaven, or am I just in Hell?

Only death decides where you go?
Can't you see what death decides for me?
You'll never know until death decides!

Dealer, pusher, conniver
It's no surprise you fell paralyzed
Felon, loser, and misuser
You're dead broke, a washed-up boozer
Misery, disaster, catastrophy
Exactly how you knew the end would be
Torture, terror, and nightmare
Is what you'll receive when death comes in three's

They say when you die you go to hell
But when you're dead it's too late to tell you!
You're left to rot in your wooden cell
Am I Heaven, or am I in Hell?
Am I Heaven, or am I just in Hell?

Only death decides for sure
Don't you know only death decides for me?
You'll never know until death decides...
Where you go!


07. Heads They Win (Tails You Lose)

A turn of a card may decide file or death
You better take this lesson from me
Some have it all, then a roll of the dice
Can take them for everything
Night after night you bet all you have
Hoping you won't find yourself in a ditch
More unpaid debts, snake eyes again!

The fever starts to take its toll
You fell your blood begin to boil
When the wheel starts to roll
Don't be late to pay your dues
Or you'll get your concrete shoes
Heads they win, tails you lose.

So let it ride and bet it all
Given any moment you can win or fall
The money you owe, the money you spent
You're caught digging in the jar for this month's rent
They've taken the car you don't pay your debts
They're gonna foreclose on all the rest
How did you get your life in this mess?

Take a good look as you bet your last buck
It comes up tails and you're out of luck
You'd better skip town 'cause your cash has run short
You borrowed from loan sharks and didn't report
Your name's on a hit list all over town
The word on the streets is to bury this clown
Your lease on life is about to expire
The season's all over it's time to retire


08. Changing Of The Guard

Rumanian dictator, emperor for life
Lived a life of luxury shared only by his wife
Growing fat like pigs, eating meals fit for a king
Accumulating assets like none you've ever seen
Now the table's turned, they were stripped of all they owned
The revolution's cast the dictator from the throne
With their execution, so ends the tyranny
Two bullets from a rifle set the people free

Fighting for their rights
They toppled the regime
Pillage all their riches
Left them not a thing
Now they know the feeling
To reap the seeds they've sewn
Banished from the living
When they were overthrown
How did they feed the enormous greed
It took to satisfy their needs?
They drained the country dry
As thousands had to die
But now the monarchy is nullfied!

The changing of the guard
They no longer deal the cards
The world demands democracy
It's the dawning of a time
When the system's redefined
Oppression's now a distant memory
Communism yields to the might the people wield
For a democratic form of government
For their blatant disregard
They have suffered long and hard
It's time for a changing of the guard!

No longer will they rule the land by genocide
The traces of their empire have all been liquefied
Political reform has gotten underway
Now they're free to speak, before they'd only pray
Freedom is contagious, it's spreading far and wide
The Berlin Wall has fallen, there's no need to divide
They walk across a border where many tried and failed
Others died but not in vain, the people have prevailed.

Fighting for their rights
They toppled the regime
Pillaged all their riches
Left them not o thing
Now they know the feeling
To reap the seeds they've sewn
Banished from the living
When they were overthrown
How did they feed the enormous greed
It took to satisfy their needs?
They drained the country dry
As thousands had to die
But now the monarchy is nullified!


09. Thrash Under Pressure

We do what we do 'cause we fucking want to
Never give a shit what others say to you
They try to give advice just to find we're cold as ice
Worthless opinions need not be spoken twice
We're proud of what me do, call us Trash we won't argue
We'll never be ashamed if our children ever knew
Forever we'll confirm and we're flattered by the term
Those embarrassed by it never should have tried it!

With my head held high
Standing dignified
I have my integrity
Never gave an inch
And I never flinch
When it came to my loyalty
100% all out nothing less
Aggressive, relentless and mean
When the chips are down
You'll never see us frown
You'll only see
Trash Under Pressure!

Heavy fuckin' sound , pound your head into the ground
Where others try and fail, we're glory bound
It's what we love to hear, we've done it for so many years
Rolling into town and blowing out your ears
Parents are against, they try and keep their children
Fenced in from the world and the evil influence
Like birds of a feather we'll always flock together
We want you to know we'll always thrash forever!
