01. Ton Of Bricks

Rip it up, kick it out.
Blood begins to flow.
Taking chances,
The only way I know.
Sacrificed everything.
I'm the grinding stone.
Ripping flesh, drawing blood.
I'd love to eat your bones.

My world will not cave in.
I will dare so I will win.
Hear the timebombs begin to tick.
I'll hit you like a ton of bricks.

Hammer or anvil,
You must pay the price.
Thunder, lightning,
Yes, it does strike twice.
Vice grips hold me,
Keep me in control.
And if you think I'm kidding you,
You will feel the fatal blow.

My world will not cave in.
I will dare so I will win.
Hear the timebombs begin to tick.
I'll hit you like a ton of bricks, ton of bricks.

Oh yeah, you!
I know that it's true
Do you have a clue
To what I'm gonna do?

I'm gonna

Rip it up, kick it out
Blood begins to flow
Taking chances
The only way I know
Sacrificed everything
I'm the grinding stone
Ripping flesh and drawing blood
I'd love to eat your bones

My world will not cave in
I will dare so I will win
Hear the timebombs begin to tick
I'll hit you like a ton of bricks

Ton of bricks, ton of bricks

Oh yeah, you!
I know that it's true
Do you have a clue
To what I'm gonna do?

I'm gonna stop.


02. Start The Fire

Break down the walls of forever.
Pull down hard on the lever.
Let them know that you can turn the key.
Though they try to hold us down.
Turn it up, that chainsaw sound.
I just love to see my parents flee.

So you see that they're all going nowhere.
Everybody's staring into space.
Start the fire.
Bring down the hammer.
Start start the fire.
Burning on forever.

Now I see the storm clouds a coming.
Can you feel the juice, it's a hummin'.
Feed the power cables into me.

Like a ship that's built for destruction.
I'm a metal man of construction.
And I'll fire my cannons, one by one.

So you see that they're all going nowhere.
Everybody's staring into space.
Start the fire.
Bring down the hammer.
Start start the fire.
Burning on forever.


03. Method To Your Madness

Please let us at them,
Goes the barrack room cry,
I'm glad I'm not going.
I'm not dying to die.
I've got all my medals
Survived sneak attacks
It's not worth all the feelings
And compassion I lack.

Out on the run, guns at your back,
They've got you in their sights.
Everyone's gone, they're dead in a trench.
Endless, sleepless nights.

I've been to the jungle
In garrison file
I've walked death's quiet paths
Each lonely mile
I killed for no reason
My heart grew stone cold
With a gun in your hand,
Suddenly you think you're so bold

Out on the run, guns at your back,
They've got you in their sights.
Everyone's gone, they're dead in a trench.
Endless, sleepless nights.

Out on the run, guns at your back
They've got you in their sights
Is the method to your madness now
To try to end your life?

Captive there and all alone
I would bide my time
I'de write my family and all my friend
And tell them I am doing fine
But why is there blood upon my chest?
Is there a method to this madness?

Twenty one guns salute you,
When you die.
Twenty one guns salute you,
Why, oh why?
Your gravestone reads
You were a patriot's son.
But nobody cares
When all is said and done.

Out on the run, guns at your back,
They've got you in their sights.
Everyone's gone, they're dead in a trench.
Endless, sleepless nights.

Out on the run, guns at your back,
They've got you in their sights.
Is the method to your madness now
To try to end your life?


04. Watch The Children Pray

In a darkened graveyard glows a light.
I see it shine there every night.
I know somewhere there's a hidden door.
There's an answer here we must explore.

No, I'll not submit to reason.
I'll sit and watch the seasons change.

We watch the children pray.
Save us God today,
Come whatever may.

We hold our fate and make the choice,
But we'll not listen to that still small voice.
Are we just crazy, out of our minds?
Wish this were someplace, another time.

We watch the children pray.
Save us God today,
Come whatever may.

And I know we're going
So far away from this wretched life we lead.
With open arms meet catastrophe,
In the valley of the damned we'll be.

And I know we're going
So far away from this wretched life we lead.
With open arms meet catastrophe,
In the valley of the damned we'll be.

We watch the children pray.
Save us God today,
Come whatever may.

And now to life we say goodbye.
I know the when but not the why.
Our nation's blood spills on the ground.
Our lives go out without a sound.


05. Over My Dead Body

No matter what you say,
You're gotta make it through the day.
You know you will, you know you will.
Just call the doctor on the phone,
Tell 'em you can't make it all alone.
Gotta get your fix.

So climb aboard your scarlet ship,
Stars are brightly dancing in your eyes.
Keep chasing all your dreams,
You know they're just a pack of lies.

The sands of time are running out.
You know this god ain't got a doubt
He's gonna get your soul.
Gonna get your soul.
Driving hard and living fast,
You know your life ain't worth a line of blast
Laid on the mirror.

So climb aboard your scarlet ship,
Stars are brightly dancing in your eyes.
Keep chasing all your dreams,
You know they're just a pack of lies.

Push the needle in your vein.
Ya laugh and shout that you're insane
You wanna die, you're gonna try.
Racing down the open road,
On your mind's heavy load of pain.
What will you gain?

So climb aboard your scarlet ship,
Stars are brightly dancing in your eyes.
Keep chasing all your dreams,
You know they're just a pack of lies.

Just a pack of lies.
Try, try, try, you're gonna try.
Lie, lie, lie, you know they're lies!
Die, die, die, you're gonna die!


06. The Dark

It's way past midnight
There's a howling wind
Oh God what can it be?
Something out there evil
And it's coming straight for me
The house is dark and very cold
I know there's no one here
Why am I scared to death
Just petrified with fear

'Cause I'm shakin' and I'm thinkin'
Of something evil lurking
And waiting for me in the house
'Cause I'm shakin' and I'm thinkin'
Of something evil lurking
And waiting for me in the dark
The dark

When I opened up the door
And snapped on the switch
The room was filled with light
Then something black and very fast
Fled upon my sight
What I feared most as a child
Was the coming of the night
Now my horrors have become quite real
My nightmares breathe new life

'Cause I'm shakin' and I'm thinkin'
Of something evil lurking
And waiting for me in the house
Yes, I'm shakin' and I'm thinkin'
Of something evil lurking
And waiting for me in the dark
Dark!

What is it in the house
That the darkness brings to life?
I sense their eyes upon me
As I grab a butcher knife
Whatever it is that waits for me
It hides beneath my bed
If I try to sleep tonight
By morning I'll be dead!

'Cause I'm shakin' and I'm thinkin'
Of something evil lurking
And waiting for me in the house
Yes, I'm shakin' and I'm thinkin'
Of something evil lurking
And waiting for me in the dark


07. Psycho

Stick your fingers in the eyes of night
Rip open the belly of Death
And you'll see
What is real

Tear down the image of youth all around
Steal the dreams from their minds
And you'll be
All their lies

[Chorus]
Can it be what you're thought to believe
It's nothing more than your mind can conceive
He's out there waiting for you
The psycho is ready to kill

Well you're a mean one a bloody bastard son
You think its all just for fun
But there's no setting sun

[Chorus]
One way all the time
You can seem to get it right
You never see the tunnel
Or the light

Spend a million just to say
You're hip
You got to find a way
To get the thrill of your life
Trip the light
Trip the light fantastic
Party and you'll die
Someday you will die

3:am you feel that twitch again
For a walk in the park
It's getting late
Slip through the gate
The psycho jumps out from behind
Sticks his knife in your
Throat and you die


08. Line Of Death

Just the other day
I heard the newsman say
Enemy missiles fired
And coming out our way
Will we all be told
Just who the hell we are
Where we take our ships
Of trade to port calls very far

[Chorus]
Beyond the line of death
He says he'll get you
If you dare defy him
To laugh at his orders
Cross over the line

So three ships went down
And all there hands were lost
If he's gonna spit on us
He's gotta pay the cost
You angry little madman
Whith fist raised to the sky
Your people just like sheep
They follow never wonder why
Blood and death his calling cards
They seem as though the answer
Spreading through this world
And growing like a cancer

His mind must be tormented
Rotting yet alive
Terrorism tactics
When will we draw the line

[Chorus]
How many times must we die
In the name of peace
Now we all know
The time is running short
And the devil sees
The world as his whore

If you see a psychopath with a loaded gun
Killing all your neighbors
Will you stand or run
Just the other day
I heard the newsman say
Enemy missiles fired
And commin out our way

[Chorus]


09. Burial At Sea

Black scared and bleeding
From the lashes to my soul
I chose to stand my ground
Not do as i was told
Thinking like mindless sheep
These people were my friends
Now i feel abandoned
With a pain that never ends

[Chorus]
My blood is boiling now
On this journey to no avail
On this ship of fools
We're gonna die
Will no one listen to what i say
I saw the charts
I saw the maps
I know we're way of course
Try to stop this captain
His twisted wicked force
We're on a route
To certain death
To drown among the ice
I've got to stop this madness
Or the ship will pay the price

SOLO
Holding tight the prison bars
As we drift into the mist
I can't believe
This is happening
My guts they wrench and twist
The air is getting colder now
Sailing further north
I back down onto my knees
I cry out to the lord

[Chorus]
In a icy wasteland
The sun begins to set
I see the frozen corpses
Of my shipmates
On the deck
I pull myself up on the rail
Make my one last prayer
Submerge myself in the depths
I drown my lifes despair


10. Western Alliance

Obtain a cloak of power
That brings us all genocide
The further satnds before the masses
Malevolence inside

[Chorus]
Truth to falsify
Poisining their minds
Hell is on the rise
The west must now align

Perceive what is right
Rush headlong into the fight
No way you'll take their lying
Their way of life is dying

[Chorus]
Facing on us their will
Now's the time for us to kill
Invasion is the only answer
Infecting us like cancer
