1. Walk A Crooked Mile

If you were in the movies,

Who would you play?

If you were tried for murder

What could you say?

And if you were out to lunch

What would you eat?

We wanna know the answers

Who do you want to beat?


Don't show your fear,

Keep it out of site,

Don't loose your place in here

And you might be all right


Don't say nothing shut your mouth

Out of time work it out

You're leaving in a cruel world

And your face is out of style

Boogey man, magic word,

Walk a crooked mile.


If you were Armageddon

Who would you spare?

If you were judge and jury,

Why would you care?

And if you were out of breath

How would you breathe?

The world deserves the answers,

What do you have up your sleeve?


Can't show your hand

Find another way,

Can't play that ace in here,

Never see another day.


Plead no contest, pass the buck,

Running scared, you ain't so tough

We hold rehearsal for your death

We're tired of your smile

Boogey man, see what you get

Walk a crooked mile.


Standing in the spotlight,

What would you need?

If you were a soldier,

How would you bleed?

And if you were in the rain,

What would you wear?

We're hungry for the answers,

Don't seem right, bu we don't care.

Don't bring your friends,

Send them all away

Don't meet your end in here,

Don't throw your life away.


Don't you change, don't drop your guard,

Double bluff throw down your cards,

Death has put his mark on you

Man and boy and child,

Boogey man, back to start

Walk a crooked mile.

2. Down The Line

Hey babe, you gotta wake up now,

I got something to say,

The way I feel I can't stay here

I gotta leave today,

I can't stand to settle down,

I gotta catch a ride

I gotta get outta here,

Because I wanna be outside,


You look just as good to me,

And you ain't done nothing wrong,

There's places that I gotta be,

I been standing still too long,

Baby please don't be mad,

you treated me real fine,

Best thing I ever had



But I gotta move on, down the line,


I gotta be in the wind,

I wanna see the sun

I know I can't be still no more,

Not now the still has gone,

I can't waste no more time,

So I'll be on my way,

You know I tried real hard,

I tried so hard to stay here,


I don't know what's wrong with me

I don't know what I'm running from,

I got some other place to be,

And I'm gonna try it on

Baby please don't be cold,

You treated me real fine

You treated me like gold,



But I gotta move on, down the line


Baby I gotta go, know I've got to move,

Gotta take a gamble,

Even though I'm born to lose,

I'll pass this way again,

I'll see you by and by,

I wish that I could stay,

I wish that I was lying,


You been real good to me

But it's time that I was gone,

There's things you just can't see,

And there's something going on,


Baby please don't be sad

You treated me real fine

I know I must be mad,

But I gotta move, gotta move

Move on down the line.

3. Brave New World

So this a new beginning, as the new century dawns

The world's a better place for you and me

Shouldn't smoke or drink or watch that evil filthy porn.

Be Christian and God will set you free.

But being poor is worse than having AIDS,

The homeless live in boxes at our feet

Living in a constant state of dull frustrated rage,

The innocent shot daily in the street



Brave new world, brave new world, brave new world



The government has always been you pal as you well know

Absolute corrupted power play,

If we all wipe each other out, it only goes to show

While the bureaucrats get richer by the day,

Smoking dope will get you more than murder one,

And even worse than statutory rape,

Don't understand your children, so you send them all to jail,

Believe me, you will never make a worse mistake.




The government is coming and it wants to be your friend,

It wants to show you how to be a snitch

Inform upon your children, the inevitable end,

Is everyone's a victim but the filthy fucking rich,

And religion, like the monster that it is

Keeps telling you to turn the other cheek

God is on your side, but I don't think that you're on his,

If Jesus showed up now he'd be in jail by next week,



4. Voices From The War

Where do all the dead men go

From the battlefields?

Where are their exploded bones

Their useless swords and shields?

In the Hall of Ancient gods,

Are they now at piece,

Or are they fighting evermore

To earn their last release?


Midgard, Heaven, Kingdom Come

Are they all the same

Fallen heroes warriors

The valiant the slain

Did they believe or did they die in vain?



Immortal dead, fathers and sons

When all is said and all is done,

Running for your life, dying for the cause

Pawns in the game

Voices from the war.


The men they march away to fight

Their fate is never clean

They never all come home again

To tell of what they've seen

In the battles bloody fury

Is the verdict just?

Executioner, judge and jury

Forgotten in the dust.



Valhalla Happy hunting ground

Are they all the same

Fallen heroes, warriors the valiant the slain.

Did they believe or did they die ashamed?


Immortal dead, brothers and sons

All is said, all is done

Fighting to the death

What did they do it for?

Soldiers of the cross

Voices from the war.


The battlefields are silent now,

The graves all look the same

The crosses without number

And so many without names

In the battles misery

Drowned in blood and fear.

A hundred hundred thousand

For a hundred thousand years



Are they in a better place,

Or do they lie unclaimed,

The heroes, the deserters, the cowardly, the shamed

Did they know or did they die insane?

Mourn for the lost,

Stolen from their lives,

Gone before their time

No chance to say goodbye,

Fighting to the death

How could they be so sure?

Voices from the grave,

Voices from the war.

5. Mine All Mine

Good lookin' girl in the corner

She nice enough to eat

She look over and she smile a little

From her head to her feet.

Over and over and over

Trying to catch her eye,

If I don't do something, it'll come to nothing

Hate myself the rest of my life.


[1st Chorus]

You can't accuse me honey,

You know I feel just fine,

I know and you know that I know

Oh Yeah, I know you're mine all mine


Girl was looking me over

Just checking me out

Looked me in the eye, and I was like to die

Knew what I was all about

Tell me, tell me, please tell me,

Tell me what you're gonna say,

If you don't say yes, I'm gonna be depressed

Sure hope I'm doing OK.


[2nd Chorus]

You can't accuse me honey,

Talking dirty ain't no crime,

I know you know and you know that I know,

Oh Yeah, I know you're mine all mine


Said she was thinking it over,

She got a look in her eye,

Told me her name, expected the same,

And so I told her mine,

Forever and ever and ever,

I swear I can't be no liar

Gonna be your man

And you'll be glad that I am

Burn you in sexual fire


[3rd Chorus]

You can't refuse me honey,

We'll get along just fine.

I know you know and I know where you go,

Oh Yeah, I know you're mine all mine

6. Shut Your Mouth

You been around the world

You think the world is yours,

All right, you been up all night,

So why can't you get it right?

No chance

No dance for you

No teenage romance

Out of the mix, out of the mix.



Ain't no way out, your momma was right,

Shut your mouth, shut your mouth.

You weren't home last night,

You don't come home no more.

Gotta be fair, your don't say where

You don't know, nobody cares.

No chance, no dance for you, no teenage romance,

None of your ticks, none of your tricks.




Can you tell me the truth, can it get much worse?

Don't tell me no lies, 'cos I can read your eyes.

You're everything that we despise,

No chance, no dance for you, no teenage romance

Better be quick

Better be quick



7. Kill The World

Out of the way, you're in the lost and found

Been a long time waiting 'til we hit the ground

See the fool, loose it all,

Ain't no lifetime long enough to use it all

You say it's here tomorrow, gone today,

Tell the judge its my way or the highway.

And in the end it's all the same.



You got to move, momma didn't raise no fools,

You got to fight, live or die shoot out the lights,

Pass the word,

Save yourself and kill the world,

Save yourself and kill the world


We got to get you home because you're burned out,

Didn't take too long before we found it out,

See the drowned, drink it all,

Ain't no ocean deep enough to sink it all,

You say it's here right now and gone before,

Tell the hand we're harder than a hardcore,

And in the end it's all a game.




So now your back, I hope you know your place,

Didn't take too long to get in your face,

See the burned, light your fire,

Ain't no Hell that burns enough for my desire,

You say its blasphemy, that's too bad,

Could be the best time that you ever had,

And in the end, the hungry flames.



8. Dr. Love

Working the room with her cat clothes on,

Messing up my mind

Mouth just made for kissing

Says a good man's hard to find,

I'm just hangin' standin' there,

Can't believe my eyes,

She looks so fine and she smiles so kind,

Make a strong man cry.


She does me in, and she'll do you too.

She only got to shake it,

And I'm shaking in my shoes



You know she's a natural woman

You know she likes that fine

You know she's a total killer,

And she ain't even trying

I want her so bad I get shivers

If I can't see her enough

She asked me my name, I said "Honey,

My name is Doctor Love"


Sat down by me and I told her

She's like to drive me blind

She smiled like a hungry tiger

Said a hard mans good to find

I just stood there helpless,

Wondering what I should move,

She said "Come on honey, show me your money

Ain't got no time to lose".


She does me in, and she'll do you to

She only has to shake it,

And she shakes me in my shoes.

You know she's a lovely lady

She ain't no easy girl

She make me wanna love her long time

To make her toenails curl.


I want her so bad I get crazy

If she don't love me enough

I want to examine her stamina

'Cos my name is Doctor Love.


She got no human pity

She don't care who she hurts

The face of an evil angel

Says a hard man makes her worse

I want to drive her crazy

Get her in her in between

But she makes it awful hard

If you see what I mean

She does me in, and she'll do you too

She only got to shake it

And I'm shaking in my shoes


You know she's a classic beauty

She don't want to fight

She like a man who's standing tall

And stood up all right

I want her so bad I get crazy

If she don't call me up

She said, "Honey, do you want me to call you?"

I said "Just call me Doctor Love"

9. No Remorse

All men know what waits for us

Wooden box, worm and dust

Maybe heaven, pearly gates

Hasty prayer, when it's too late

Burn in hell, all is lost,

Purgatory, fingers crossed

Which or Who, your or mine?

Eternity's a long, long time.


Never mind, never fail

Right this time, on the nail

Never mind, Never mind, Never mind, Never mind

No remorse, No remorse, No remorse, No remorse


You know it well, confess it now,

Christian guilt, is what's allowed,

Other words are heresy

Burn forever 1, 2, 3

What can you do? No guaranties,

Hopeful begging, on your knees,

All in all, you're going down.

Winged sinner or singed clown




Repent ye fool, God will hear,

Christmas carol, midnight clear

Otherwise, pits of fire

Punishment for base desire,

Satan waits, goatee beard,

Long old tail, nasty spear,

If you believe these tales they tell

Then you deserve to burn in Hell.



10. Red Raw

monster in the moonlight

devils in his head

how can they talk so loud

tonight is his to take nobody knows his face

something he will not allow

unseen wet dream steel claw.

moonshine carmine red raw


horror in the starlight, faces in the rain,

killer want to fall in love

worms in his mind,

ravenous and blind,

now he starts to feel good.



all blood is his to drink

he takes his fill and more,

face and hands all red

drown in sweet, sweet gore,

all blood is his tonight,

he bathes in red delight

and all he wants to do

is more and more and more


terror without pity

fever in his mind

death, confusion, love and blood,

looking for a perfect one,

seek and ye shall find

crazy and he feels good

unseen, wet dream, sharp claw,

moonshine, carmine, red raw.


monster in the gaslight,

shivers in the cold, looking for a bad girl

whimpering and mad

but he ain't feeling bad

crazy in his own world




horror in the shadows,

red and white and dead

rain is falling in her hair

now what he loves best.

head dips to the wounds

face a scarlet nightmare

unseen, wet dream, skin crawl

blade shine, carmine, red raw.


horror in the twilight

women run and scream

killer's gone a long time

red mask turns to grin,

see the shape he's in

this is what he's born for.



11. Serial Killer

I am the serial killer

I am the bloody hand

I am the chief whore taker

I am the chosen one.


I am the red straight razor,

The one who bathes in blood;

I am the Boogey-man, I am

The empty yawning hood,

Look not for pity, no;

I am the heartless man,

I come to fix all things,

I am the one man band.


You cannot yet imagine,

How you will dance for me;

But you will dance forever

To the tune that I decree.

The kingdom of the worm,

Is all things to us all,

But I will teach you many things,

before I let you fall.


I am the black dead nightmare.

I bring a light so bright;

To illuminate the path we take;

I show the way that all hearts break,

And I will see the old world's back be broken


As we descend into the awful





12. The Game

It's time to play the game...

Time to play the game! Ha ha


It's all about the game and how you play it.

All about control and if you can take it.

All about your debt and if you can pay it.

It's all about pain and who's gonna make it.


I am the game, you don't wanna play me.

I am control, no way you can change me.

I am heavy debt, no way you can pay me.

I am the pain and I know you can't take me.


Look over your shoulder, ready to run.

Like a good little bitch, from a smoking gun.

I am the game and I make the rules.

So move on out here and die like a fool.

Try to figure out what my moods gonna be.

Come on over sucker, why don't you ask me?

Don't you forget that the price you can pay

Cause I am the game and I want to play....


It's time to play the game........hahaha

Time to play the game!


It's all about the game and how you play it.

It's all about control and if you can take it.

It's all about your debt and if you can pay it.

It's all about pain and who's gonna make it.


I am the game, you don't wanna play me.

I am control, there's no way you can change me.

I am your debt, and you know you can't pay me.

I am your pain and I know you can't take me.


Play the game

Your gonna be the same

Your gonna change your name

Your gonna die in flames


Ha ha


Time to play the game!

It's time to play the game...

It's time to play the game...

It's time to play the game...

Time to play the game! Ha ha
