    "Skin O' My Teeth"

    I had wrists donning slits
    Flowing constantly
    My broken body in a wreck
    Wrapped around a tree
    A crosswalk hit and run
    The finish line for me
    People clutter in the gutter
    Take a look and see

    Chorus
    No escaping pain
    You belong to me
    Clinging on to life
    By the skin o' my teeth

    My blood flows through the streets
    Deluge from the wounds
    Empty jars of sleeping pills
    On the dresser of my room
    My wet brain neighbor cranes
    His neck to see in time,
    The white lights a train
    Bearing down on me

    Chorus
    Solo
    - Marty

    I won't feel the hurt
    I'm not trash any longer
    That that doesn't kill me
    Only makes me stronger
    I need a ride to the morgue
    That's what 911 is for
    So, tag my toe and don't forget
    Ooh to close the drawer

    Chorus



    "Symphony of Destruction"

    You take a mortal man,
    And put him in control
    Watch him become a god,
    Watch peoples heads a'roll
    A'roll...

    Chorus
    Just like the Pied Piper
    Led rats through the streets
    We dance like marionettes,
    Swaying to the Symphony...
    Of Destruction

    Acting like a robot,
    Its metal brain corrodes.
    You try to take its pulse,
    Before the head explodes.
    Explodes...

    Chorus
    Solo
    -Marty

    The earth starts to rumble
    World powers fall
    A'warring for the heavens,
    A peaceful man stands tall
    Tall...

    Chorus



    "Architecture of Aggression"

    Born from the dark,
    In the black cloak of night.
    To envelop its prey below,
    Deliver to the light.
    To eliminate your enemy,
    Hit them in their sleep,
    And when all is won and lost,
    The spoils of wars are yours to keep.

    Chorus
    Great nations built from the bones of the dead,
    With mud and straw, blood and sweat,
    You know your worth when your enemies
    Praise your architecture of aggression.

    Solo-Marty

    Ensuing power vacuum,
    A toppled leader dies
    His body fuels the power fire,
    And the flames rise to the sky.
    One side of his face a kiss,
    The other genocide.
    Time to pay with your ass,
    A worldwide suicide.

    Chorus

    Solo-Marty

    Born from the dark,
    In the black cloak of night.
    To envelop its prey below,
    Deliver to the light.
    To eliminate your enemy,
    Hit then in their sleep,
    And when all is won and lost,
    The spoils of war are yours to keep.

    Chorus



    "Foreclosure of a Dream"

    Rise so high, yet so far to fall.
    A plan of dignity and balance for all.
    Political breakthrough, euphoria's high.
    More borrowed money, more borrowed time.
    Backed in a corner, caught up in the race.
    Means to an end ended in disgrace.
    Perspective is lost in the spirit of the chase.

    Chorus
    Foreclosure of a dream,
    Those visions never seen,
    Until all is lost,
    Personal Holocaust.
    Foreclosure of a dream.

    Barren land that once filled a need,
    Are worthless now, dead without a deed.
    Slipping away from an iron grip,
    Nature's scales are forced to tip,
    The heartland cries, loss of all pride
    . To leave ain't believing, so try and be tried.
    Insufficient funds, insanity and suicide.

    Chorus
    Solo
    -Dave

    Now with new hope some will be proud.
    This is no hoax, no one pushed out.
    Receive a reprieve and be a pioneer.
    Break new ground of a new frontier.
    New ideas will surely get by.
    No deed, or dividend. Some may ask "Why?"
    You'll find the solution, the answers in the sky.

    Solo-Marty

    Rise so high, yet so far to fall.
    A plan of dignity and balance for all.
    Political breakthrough, euphoria's high.
    More borrowed money, more borrowed time.

    Chorus
    Holocaust



    "Sweating Bullets"

    Hello me...Meet the real me.
    And my misfits way of life.
    A dark black past is my
    Most valued possession.
    Hindsight is always 20-20,
    But looking back it's still a bit fuzzy.
    Speak of mutually assured destruction?
    Nice story...Tell it to Reader's Digest!!!

    Chorus
    Feeling paranoid
    True enemy or false friend?
    Anxiety's attacking me, and
    My air is getting thin.
    I'm in trouble for the things
    I haven't got to yet.
    I'm chomping at the bit, and my
    Palms are getting wet, sweating bullets.

    Solo-Dave
    Hello me...It's me again.
    You can subdue, but never tame me.
    It gives me a migraine headache
    Thinking down to your level.
    Yea, just keep on thinking it's my fault
    And stay an inch or two outta kicking distance.
    Mankind has got to know
    His limitations.

    Chorus
    Feeling claustrophobic,
    Like the walls are closing in.
    Blood stains on my hands and
    I don't know where I've been.
    I'm in trouble for the things
    I haven't got to yet.
    I'm sharpening the axe and my
    Palms are getting wet, sweating bullets.

    Well, me...it's nice talking to myself,
    A credit to dementia.
    Some day you too will know my pain,
    And smile its blacktooth grin.
    If the war inside my head
    Won't take a day off I'll be dead.
    My icy fingers claw your back,
    Here I come again.

    Chorus
    Feeling paranoid
    True enemy or false friend?
    Anxiety's attacking me
    And my air is getting thin
    Feeling claustrophobic,
    Like the walls are closing in.
    Blood stains on my hands and
    I don't know where I've been
    Once you committed me
    Now you've acquitted me
    Claiming validity
    For your stupidity
    I'm chomping at the bit
    I'm sharpening the axe
    Here I come again, whoa!
    Sweating bullets



    "This Was My Life"

    It was just another day
    It was just another fight
    It was words strung into sentences
    It was doomed to not be right

    There is something wrong with me
    There is something wrong with you
    There is nothing left of us
    There is one thing I can do

    Chorus
    Lying on your bed,
    Examining my head
    This is the part of me that hates
    Paybacks are a bitch
    I throw the switch
    Somewhere an electric chair awaits
    Hey! This was my life
    Hey! This was my fate

    This was the wrong thing to do
    This was the wrong one to be doing
    This was the road to destiny
    This was the road to my ruin

    Now there's motives for the suspect
    Now there's nothing left to say
    Now there's method to the madness
    Now there's society to pay

    Chorus

    In our life there's if
    In our beliefs there's lie
    In our business there's sin
    In our bodies there's die

    Solo-Dave

    This was my life
    This was my fate



    "Countdown to Extinction"

    Endangered species, caged in fright,
    Shot in cold blood, no chance to fight.
    The stage is set, now pay the price.
    An ego boost, don't think twice.
    Technology, the battle's unfair,
    You pull the hammer without a care.
    Squeeze the trigger that makes you Man,
    Pseudo-safari, the hunt is canned...
    The hunt is canned.

    Chorus
    All are gone, all but one.
    No contest, nowhere to run.
    No more left, only one.
    This is it, this is the Countdown to Extinction.

    Tell the truth, you wouldn't dare.
    The skin and trophy, oh so rare.
    Silence speaks louder than words.
    Ignore the guilt, and take your turn.
    Liars anagram is "lairs,"
    Man you were never even there.
    Killed a few feet from the cages,
    Point blank, you're so courageous...
    So courageous.

    Chorus

    One hour from now,
    another species of life form
    will disappear off the face of the planet
    forever...and the rate is accelerating.

    Chorus



    "High Speed Dirt"

    Do it if you dare
    Leaping from the sky
    Hurling thru the air
    Exhilarating high
    See the earth below
    Soon to make a crater
    Blue sky, black death
    I'm off to meet my maker

    Chorus
    Energy of the gods, adrenalin surge
    Won't stop til I hit the ground, I'm on my way for sure
    Up here in the air, this will never hurt
    I'm on my way to impact, taste the high speed dirt

    Paralyzed with fear
    Feel velocity gain
    Entering a near
    Catatonic state
    Pressure of the sound
    Roaring thru my head
    Crash into the ground
    Damned if I'll be dead

    Chorus

    Jump or die!

    Solo-Dave
    Solo-Marty

    Dropping all my weight
    Going down full throttle
    The pale horse awaits
    Like a genie in a bottle
    Fire in my veins
    Faster as I go
    I forgot my name
    I'm a dirt torpedo

    Solo-Marty

    High speed dirt...

    Solo-Dave



    "Psychotron"

    Assassin in stealth
    Assailant from Hell
    Impervious to damage
    Computer on-board
    Engaged in a war
    Non-stop combatant
    Maybe not a mutant, maybe a man

    Chorus
    Part bionic
    And organic
    Not a cyborg
    Call him Psychotron

    Burning inside
    Godspeed in glide
    Battle plan running
    A killing machine
    Just downright mean
    And forever gunning
    Maybe not a mutant, maybe a man

    Chorus

    Target to destroy
    Arms in employ
    Full assault fire threat
    Sensors indicate
    You will terminate
    Life systems disconnect

    Chorus

    All solos-Marty

    Psychotron



    "Captive Honor"

    Madness comes and madness goes
    An insane place, with insane moves
    Battles without, for battles within
    Where evil lives and evil rules
    Breaking them up, just breaking them in
    Quickest way out, quickest relief wins
    Never disclose, never betray
    Cease to speak or cease to breathe
    And when you kill a man, you're a murderer
    Kill many, and you're a conqueror
    Kill them all...Ooh...Oh you're a god!

    Ladies and gentlemen of the jury,
    Have you reached a verdict?

    Yes, we have Your Honour, we find the defendant guilty!
    On all counts for crimes against all humanity.

    By virtue of the jury's decision and the power
    Vested in me by the state I hereby sentence you to be
    Incarcerated with no possibility of parole for life.

    Life?...Whadda ya mean life?...I ain't got a life.

    Boy!...Your soul better belong to Jesus!...
    Hmmm-mmm cause your ass belongs to me!

    Chorus
    Captive honour, ain't no honour

    No time for questions
    No time for the games
    Start kicking ass
    And taking down the names
    A long shit list
    A shorter fuse
    He is untouchable
    And guarantees you'll lose

    Chorus

    Solo-Dave

    Inside the bighouse
    His nightmare unfolds
    Before he got there
    His manpussy was sold
    Black blanket welcome
    This tough guy's now a bitch
    Praying for death
    It can't be worse than this

    Chorus

    Solo-Dave
    Solo-Marty

    Chorus



    "Ashes in Your Mouth"

    People have round shoulders from fairing heavy loads.
    And the soldiers liberate them, laying mines along their roads.
    Sorrow paid for valor is too much to recall
    Of the countless corpses piled up along the wailing wall.

    Melting down all metals, turning plows and shears to swords,
    Shun words of the Bible, we need implements of war.
    Chalklines and red puddles of those who have been slain
    Destiny, that crooked schemer, says the dead shall rise again

    Chorus
    Where do we go from here?
    And should we really care?
    The end is finally here,
    God have mercy!

    Now we've rewritten history
    The one thing we've found out,
    Sweet taste of vindication,
    It turns to ashes in your mouth.

    Chorus
    If you're fighting to live
    It's O.K. to die!
    The answer to your question is...
    Welcome to tomorrow!

    Solo-Marty
    Solo-Marty
    Solo-Dave

    Where do we go from here?
    God have mercy!

    Chorus
