Track Name: The Terror
I've got an angle on angling that's obtuse
Gonna get you baby and put you to use
Crawling on my belly all on through the weeds
Some folks think I'm squirrelly
They don't know of my deeds
Stagnant water around my brain
I've got muck in my lungs
But I stay busy until summer comes
Crawling on my belly
You know I cant keep still
Your eyes glazed over are my biggest thrill
I am the Terror, nerves in the dirt feel no pain
I am the Terror, worms in the dirt shall remain
Track Name: The Bronski
Subtle as a spiked club
Speaking of your love, put in innuendo it fits just like a glove
Honey leave the light on papa's comin' home
Graceful as a dancing bear stumbling to your love
Honey you and I can never part
Come a little closer let me bad touch your heart
Oh yeah! Do the Bronski!
Soaring with the eagles, slithering with the snakes
Warming up your engine don't slam on the brakes
Double the entendre, double down your bets
My love for you is retard strong I've got no kind of sense
Honey you and I can never part
Come a little closer let me bad touch your heart
Oh Yeah! Do the Bronski!
Track Name: Atomic Rock
Living these small town blues
There's one thing that gets us through
Uranium Rock n Roll! You can believe it's true
They split the atom, we share the fame
Amplifiers start to glow
We set the town aflame
Can't stop the atomic rock no
It's the cause of all this talk yeah
Some bands make you clap your hands
Honey that aint for me
Uranium Rock n Roll might give your kids webbed feet
We found a secret buried underground
On down to Alsip then back to Zion town
Can't stop the atomic rock no
It's the cause of all this talk, alright!
Track Name: Night of The Gypsy
Lines on the road
Lines on my palm
They both drive me to where I'm bound
"There'll come a day" said the gypsy " and it will be very soon"
"You'll burn in flames" said the gypsy " Sure as the sun aint the moon" Lines on the road
Lines up my nose
My hands are shaking, I'm losing control
"There'll come a day" said the gypsy " and it will be very soon"
"you'll burn in flames" said the gypsy. "Sure as the sun aint the moon".
It's just the night. Night of the gypsy
Track Name: Invader's Blues
The face I see when I look in the mirror, lord I must say aint my own
The blood on my hands can't be washed off at all until I reap what I've sown
The black shape behind me, it sure aint my shadow
It leads me on towards that tree
Now I don't run, cuz I know that I'll never be free
"E tu Invader?" the words echo still
The lingering stench of an unburied kill
"E tu Invader?" Now it is clear, that it is death that I no longer fear
I still remember the dying man's words 22 years to the day
With eyes ablaze he said he'd seek justice
As his life's blood dripped away
He walked so tall, and with no thought at all
I cut him down like a tree
Now I don't run cuz I know that I'll never be free
"E tu Invader?" The words echo still. The lingering stench of an unburied kill
"E tu Invader?" now it is clear, that it is death that I no longer fear
Track Name: Sons of Onan
Amid suburban sprawl, a palace standing tall
Behold his pyramid! In all it's glory
This modern monument, aint sure of it's intent
His gold plated residence...masturbatory
Onan! You can't stop the sons of nothing
Onan! It ain't hard to see what's cumming
Some kind of true believer. He ripped his root, the root of all evil
Took the money in his hairy palm, and stroked his ego
Spilled seed can't germinate, money can't procreate
He's done with the human race. Their fate's been sealed
Onan! You can't stop the sons of nothing
Onan! It aint hard to see what's cumming
Track Name: I Want It Wrong
Looking down your nose, you might not see
That playing loud and living free
It aint because of fond nostalgia
There aint no delusion of our grandeur
Enlightenment's come and it aint been no fun
If you've got it right then I want it wrong
Conform to rebel, it's a sign that should tell
If you've got it right then I want it wrong
This is the truth it aint no fable
We'll do to you what Kane did Abel
Sonically said we've made our bed
We won't lie down until we're dead
Enlightenment's come and it aint been no fun
If you've got it right then I want it wrong
Track Name: Devil Went Down to Alsip
The devil he left his throne and he went on the lamb
He had grown tired of the pain and the suffering of man
That was the day he showed us what to play
The earth it shook and the sky turned red
"See you in hell" that's what he said
The devil's hand it had touched our heads
"See you in hell" that's what he said
Stranded in Alsip, he found us when morale was low
He offered success in exchange for our mere mortal souls
That was the day he showed us what to play
The earth it shook and the sky turned red
"See you in hell" that's what he said
The devil's hand it had touched our heads
"See you in hell" that's what he said
Track Name: The Lariat
Smell of leather, blood and sweat
Woman's toy and man's regret
Knock your block off
Don't it hurt?
Knock your dick right in the dirt
I aint no gelding, I'm meant to stud
Ride to glory on a sea blood
The lariat strikes, whatcha gonna do
The lariat strikes, it's coming down on you
Piledriver, count of two
Now there's one thing left to do
Hit the ring ropes, hit the dirt
Lord almighty that's got to hurt
I ain't no gelding, I'm meant to stud
Ride to glory on a sea of blood
The lariat strikes, whatcha gonna do
The lariat strikes, It's coming down on you
Track Name: Thunderhead
Fighting in the whiskey halls gets to your brain
You know you've got the right to choose
If alcohol and cannon fire is the name of your game
You've only got your head to lose
Descending on the legion hall, a black leather swarm
No one could believe what they saw
Thunder Head! upon the ground his blood's been shed
Thunder Head! upon the ground, a good man dead
His hand still lights the fuse
Track Name: The Curse
The stars that shown on Dallas have all but left the sky
The Sportatorium in moratorium for all of those who died
The stars that shown on Dallas have sputtered out and died
The devil got what Fritz could not, when he signed that dotted line
Because when you signed that deal, there's one thing you should know
You didn't read the fine print cuz you didn't sell your soul
The devil's contract is a pact that's sealed in hell
How dare you pawn off, what isn't yours to sell
Cuz when you ride the tiger, you're going to feel the claw
What goes up, it must come down when you watch your family fall
When you're down in Texas, take the road less traveled yeah
When you take the back roads it's just a shortcut to your death
Track Name: Return Of The Fog
Out of the twilight, a shining mystery
The night is prime for moving around
He can't remember a time he's been so free
Now he's hell bent and glory bound
The freeway is his own
It's written on his stone
Tonight his one last chance for glory
And even though he's gone his spirit carries on
Return of the Fog, he rides on and on
That lonely stretch of road that saw his tragedy
That is where you're sure to find him
He's back and on the run a mortal victory
The chains of life no longer bind him
The freeway is his own. It's written on his stone
Tonight his one last chance for glory
And even though he's gone his spirit carries on
Return of the Fog, He rides on and on
Track Name: Down N' Dirty (05 demo)
Not lean by any means, but that's how I make the scene
But what I hunger for is rotten to the core
Got nothing? You've got nothing to lose
Idle hands play the songs that make us sing
Tune your guitar string
And now it's time cuz I'm down, down and dirty
You aint got shit on me
Cuz I'm down, down and dirty
When the light shines on me
I hear people talk about how it's supposed to be
The serpent's tongue is in your ear
Who do you believe?
Not lean by any means, but that's how I make the scene
Cast out from his right hand
Ordained to rock the land
Got nothing? You've got nothing to lose
Idle hands play the songs that make us sing
Tune your guitar string
And now it's time cuz I'm down, down and dirty
You aint got shit on me. Cuz I'm down, down and dirty
When the light shines on me
I hear people talk about how it's supposed to be
The serpent's tongue is in your ear. Who do you believe?
Track Name: Song Of The Brazen Bull (05 demo)
A wise man was called upon to answer to the king
Not knowing of the sorrow that his mind could bring
So the king requested the usage of his skill
To create that iron bull, with intent to kill
This abomination stood for all to view, as they stoked the fire anticipation grew
The purpose of this structure, to bring all kinds of wrong
Take their screams of anguish and turn them to a song
A thing of justice some said but don't be fooled
For the man that knew he would pay for the Brazen Bull
Smoke started to billow from the creature's nose
Pressure started building and then a faint sound it arose
And for it's creator on that fateful day, it was his song the people heard from a mile away
A thing of justice some said but don't be fooled
For the man that knew he would pay for the Brazen Bull
