Album Description: 

Recorded at Music Grinder Studios, Los Angeles, March ör Die is Motörhead's tenth studio album. It was recorded and released in 1992, produced by Peter Solley at Music Grinder Studios, (except "Hellraiser" which was produced by Billy Sherwood) with a more commercial approach than previously.

Drummer Phil Taylor was fired after "I Ain't No Nice Guy" was recorded due to failing to learn his drum tracks and having been told repeatedly to get his act together since rejoining the band in 1987. Session musician Tommy Aldridge then stepped in before Mikkey Dee, who recorded the "Hellraiser" single joined the band on a permanent basis.

"Hellraiser" was originally co-written by Lemmy and Ozzy Osbourne (also signed to Epic Records) for Ozzy's No More Tears album and was used in the 1992 movie Hellraiser III: Hell on Earth. Released as a single it didn't chart on either side of the Atlantic.

Another film credit goes to the song "You Better Run" which was re-recorded in 2004 as "You Better Swim" for the SpongeBob SquarePants Movie.

Reaching only 60 in the UK album charts Lemmy has expressed the opinion that this album would have been a hit, had Epic given proper distribution of the "I Ain't No Nice Guy" video, also featuring Ozzy Osbourne and Slash. See below and check out Ozzy's dodgy hair and Miami Vice clothing.

1. Stand

Stand - you can make it

Stand - you can take it

Stand - realize that nobody can break it for you

Stand - you can do it

Stand - go right to it

Stand - nobody can do a damn thing to you

But you can't stand - if you don't care

Can't stand - if you don't dare

Can't stand - if you're running scared

Forget you're blood & bone

Stand like you're made of stone

Stand - on your honor

Stand - show you're gonna

Stand - they can't put the creeping death upon you

If you stand - never move it

Stand - gotta prove it

Stand - stand 'cause you can't stand to lose it

Stand - stand - stand like a rock

Stand - stand - you stop their clock

Stand - stand - put them into shock

Stand

Stand - stand - together

Stand - yeah you better

Stand - don't you know that you can live forever if you

Stand - one for all

Stand - don't you crawl

Stand - if you stand then you deserve it all

But if you can't stand,

Then they're the boss,

Can't stand - it's a total loss

Can't stand - they'll nail you to the cross

Forget you're blood and bone

Stand like you're made of stone

Stand

 

2. Cat Scratch Fever

Well I don't know where they come from, but they sure do come

I hope they're coming for me

And I don't know how they do it, but they do it real good

I hope they do it for free

They give me cat scratch fever

cat scratch fever

First time that I got it I was thirteen years old!

Pussy cat livin' next door

And I went to see the doctor and he put me on hold

He said there wasn't no cure

He said it's cat scratch fever

cat scratch fever

He said it's cat scratch fever

cat scratch fever

I'm not in danger, I'm not in pain, I'm moving like a train

You know you got it 'cause it makes you insane

It makes you want to do it, do it, wasting my brain

Well I make that kitten happy with the tongue and the hand

She wave her tail at me

She knows just where to come to find a sensitive man

I give it to her for free

Cat scratch fever

Cat scratch fever

 

3. Bad Religion

Thou who wouldst make us devils

Thou shalt not poison me

The world hath been persuaded to believe thy heresy

I spit in the eye of Satan

And I will spit in thine

The devils that surround thee

Liveth only in thine eye

Bad Religion, Bad Religion

I need no gods or devils, I need no pagan rights

Bad religion, Bad religion

I need no burning crosses to illuminate my nights

HEY, HEY, You hear me now

You hear me now

HEY, HEY, For thou art Judas

The mark of Cain be on thy brow

Evangelistic Nazis, you cannot frighten me

The name you take in vain shall judge you for eternity

I spit in the eye of Satan

Spit right in your eye too

You are the spooks you're chasing

You know not what you do

Bad religion, Bad religion

I know you lie, I know you lie

Bad religion, Bad religion

Thieves and liars

Cross my heart I hope you die

If there be such a being

Then thou art Anti-christ

Turn men against their children

Turn beauty into vice

I say thy God shall smite thee

He will perceive thy lust

His wrath shall fall upon thee

Thou that betray his thrust

Bad religion, Bad religion

I say that thou art liars, Thy souls shall not be saved

Bad religion, Bad religion

Here are the days of thunder, The days that thou hast made

HEY, HEY

Base seducers, I see thy greed

HEY, HEY

I am more fit for glory, Than any ten of thee

 

4. Jack The Ripper

See into the future

See into the past

I gotta tell you what I'm seeing in the glass

Tall dark stranger, knocking your door

Looking thru the window, It's you he's looking for

Don't be acting crazy don't you cause a riot

Stand very still, Keep very quiet

You'll never see the face

Of the man in the window

Heart begins to race

He's the one to spring you a surprise

Aaah, the ripper master of disguise

See into the mind

See into the brain

Try to find the reasons that Jacky's out again

Slipping and sliding don't even try to hide

Just like your shadow, breathing at your side

Don't give into panic, Don't you run an' scream

Aaah, the ripper, haunting all your dreams

You'll never see the face

Of the man in the window

Heart begins to race

He's the one to spring you a surprise

Aaah, The ripper master of disguise

Cold steel, whisper in the night

He'll be at your side, with a smile and a knife

It's seems like dreaming, moving in the dance

The last embrace you'll ever know, The violence of romance

Don't try to run, you'll trip and fall

You'd be a fool

He's right beside you and he can be so cruel

Stand O very still your heart is beating like a drum

He turns his face towards you

And the two move as one

And so the mystery continues to beguile

The ones who know can never tell you of his smile

See the faces shiver, see the figures move

How can you see they move so fast

You're bound to lose

 

5. I Ain't No Nice Guy

When I was young I was the nicest guy I knew

I thought I was the chosen one

But time went by and I found out a thing or two

My shine wore off as time wore on

I thought that I was living out the perfect life

But in the lonely hours when the truth begins to bite

I thought about the times when I turned my back & stalled

I ain't no nice guy after all

When I was young I was the only game in town

I thought I had it down for sure,

But time went by and I was lost in what I found

The reasons blurred, the way unsure

I thought that I was living life the only way

But as I saw that life was more than day to day

I turned around, I read the writing on the wall

I ain't no nice guy after all

I ain't no nice guy after all

In all the years you spend between your birth and death

You find there's lots of times you should have saved your breath

It comes as quite a shock when that trip leads to fall

 

6. Hellraiser

I'm living on an endless road

Around the world for rock and roll

Sometimes it feels so tough

But I still ain't had enough

I keep saying that it's getting to much

But I know I'm a liar

Feeling all right in the noise and the light

But that's what lights my fire

Hellraiser, In the thunder and heat

Hellraiser, Rock you back in your seat

Hellraiser, And I'll make it come true

Hellraiser, I'll put a spell on you

Walking out on another stage

Another town, another place

Sometimes I don't feel right

Nerves wound up to damn tight

Don't you tell me it's bad for my health

'Cos kicking back don't make it

Out of control, I play the ultimate role

Don't know how to fake it

Hellraiser, In the thunder and heat

Hellraiser, Rock you back in your seat

Hellraiser, And I'll make it come true

Hellraiser, I'll put a spell on you

[Repeat first verse]

Hellraiser, In the thunder and heat

Hellraiser, Rock you back in your seat

Hellraiser, And I'll make it come true

Hellraiser, I'll put a spell on you

 

7. Asylum Choir

Gone out of sight there's only darkness in my eyes

Hey, hey, where are the loosers now

Gone inside outlaws every day a losing streak

Every day they tell us lies

The sky, the sky is crushing you

The wall, the walls are touching you too

Even the floor is clutching you

And all the eyes that ever closed are open,

and they're watching you

Blind justice hears the voice of bribery all right,

Hey, hey, but she don't see the joke

There's only treason left when you put out the light

You can't see who it was that spoke

The sky, the sky is crushing you

The wall, the walls are touching you too

Even the floor is clutching you

And all the eyes you ever closed are open,

and they're watching you

There ain't no windows in the hallways anymore

Hey, hey, the news is awful bad

Two schizophrenics but I can't see them at all

Anymore and I'll go mad

The sky is crushing you

And now the walls are closing in on you

Even the floor is tripping you

And all the eyes you ever closed are open,

and they're watching you

 

8. Too Good To Be True

I saw some sad times I said

I'd had enough of heartbreak

I told myself that I could never fall again

Then sure as fate she came, I,

Just had to get to her and,

She gave me all her numbers, gave me all her names

Cold and lonely without you

Don't know if I can make it through,

Maybe you'll hear this song

You been gone way too long,

Too good to let it go, too good to be true

We left and we went home,

Unbelievable,

I looked into her eyes, thunder in my heart,

And we were joined forever

Our bodies slick together,

I told her everything, confessions in the dark

Cold and lonely without you

Don't know if I can make it through,

Maybe you'll hear this song

You been gone way too long,

Too good to let it go, too good to be true

She painted inspiration

Onto my fractured soul, I

Was never sure she knew how much she meant to me

She never trusted me, I know she didn't see

The night she left she killed the heart inside of me

Cold and lonely without you

Don't know if I can make it through,

Maybe you'll hear this song

You been gone way too long,

Too good to let it go, too good to be true

Cold and lonely without you

Don't know if I can make it through,

Maybe you'll hear this song

You been gone way too long,

Too good to let it go, too good to be true

 

9. You Better Run

I got no reason, to lie to you

What's in the cards, that's what I do

I was born a-running & laughing out loud

With my feet on the ground & my head in the clouds

You better run, oh baby you better run

I got a blade like lightning, silver bullets in my gun

I'm short & I'm tall, I'm black & I'm white

Sometimes I be wrong, sometimes I be right

I'm iron & steel, I'm bad to the bone

You come looking for trouble, honey don't you come alone

I seen 'em come, & I seen 'em go,

I seen things & been people, that nobody knows

I'm talking in pictures and I'm painting them black,

I seen Satan coming honey in a big black Cadillac

 

10. Name In Vain

Don't you say a word to me

Always barking up my tree

I don't need no more grief, no more third degree

Turn sunshine into rain

Turn pleasure into shame

Turn everything I say, inside out again

It seems, it seems the same

It seems, I ain't to blame

It seems, that you're insane

Don't you take my name in vain

Tell me what a dog I am

Tell me it's 'cause I'm a man

Tell you what, who gives a damn

Just another scam

Ain't me that's wrong this time

Ain't me that's out of line

Ain't me, it ain't my crime

Your rap, 'cause it ain't mine

It seems, it seems the same

It seems, I ain't to blame

It seems, that you're insane

Don't you take my name in vain

Seems like you know the rules

I know you ain't no fool, you think you're somethin' else,

You look pretty cool,

You ought to reconsider, I ain't no Indian giver

I been as fair as I know how so shut your mouth

You know it all seems

It's only in your dreams

I'm getting sick to death of swimming up the stream

I'm gonna ask you nice, and then I'll ask you twice

If that don't work you get your ass back in your jeans

Seems to me, seems the same

Seems to me, I ain't to blame

Seems to me that you're insane

Don't you take my name in vain

 

11. March Ör Die

The beast behind our eyes is loose,

The day has come, the day has come,

We march to Armageddon, hungry for the war

I see the hated enemy, I see what I was taught to see

And one of us will bend the knee

We understand the law

The blood lust jerks our legs to march,

Fife and drum, fife and drum

Our eyes are fixed and fearless

Searching for the war

Our statesmen deal in blood and lies

100 million stifled cries, 100 million wasted lives

Already gone before

So March or Die, March or Die

The stench of death is in the sky

We never fail to satisfy

We rend with tooth and claw

Sword and shield and jackboot heel

We love to kill, we love to kill

We love to taste our own blood

Squirm in our own gore

Children weep and widows wail,

Our education systems fail,

To hide our guilt we build more jails,

and we shall build still more

Our forests die, the stranglehold

That we put on the earth for gold

Will yet increase ten thousand fold

And no one knows what for

March and die, March and die

Defecate, despoil and lie

Cheat, dissemble, preach & spy

Build your house of straw

Laugh and cry, laugh and cry

Bloody sunset drowns the sky

For earth the heal then we must die

No-one deserves it more

I tell you we are doomed my friends

Our time is come, our time is come

We live within a charnel house

Rotten to the core

We glorify lust, greed & pain

We drown our hope in poison rain

We point the finger, shift the blame

Ambition makes us whores

March or croak, march or croak

All your lives a cosmic joke

Fill your days with piss and smoke

The wolf waits at your door

Burn and dance, burn and dance

Sex, death, torture, false romance

Whoop and howl, you have no chance

Burn & rise no more
