Death Row Lyrics

(15)
Submitted by level DevilDoll
1. Death Row (5:17)
I'm dead meat - you took away my rights
To be a part of your society
A life-time in prison wouldn't justify
You wanna blow away a sucker - so I have to die

I'm still waiting for the final call
I wanna meet my maker - I'm ready to go
Kill me - kill me - kill me - please, kill me

Give me a reason why you're gonna let me wait
Some kind of punishment before you terminate
You're taking my life for your peace of mind
So let's go - start the show

Death row - I'm ready to go - death row
Let me die - let me go
Death row - I'm ready to go - death row
Let me die - let me go - death row

I'm a dead man walking so get outta my face
Rather die like a man than rotting this way
I hate you and you hate me
You can come and kiss my dignity
You're taking my life for your peace of mind
So let's go - start the show

Death row - I'm ready to go - death row
Let me die - let me go
Death row - I'm ready to go - death row
I'm ready to go - death row - death row

Your justice is not mine
You punish a crime with another crime
If you need to kill me for your peace of mind
Then let's go - start the show

Death row - I'm ready to go - death row
Let me die - let me go
Death row - I'm ready to go - death row
I'm ready to go - death row - death row

Death row - open up 'cause here I come
Death row - knock, knock, knocking
I'm no hero's son
Death row - there's no tears that you can sell
Death row - paid my ticket through the gates of hell

Death row - death row
Let me die - let me go
Death row - death row
2. Sodom & Gomorra (6:28)
Ever since the stone-age
Man's been on the hunt
We were born to kill

Fighting for survival
All in self-defence
It was do or die

Now we're living in jungles
The concrete age
A maximum overdose of pleasure and pain

Self-inflicted - life corrupting
Antisocial - controversial - living in sin

Sodom and Gomorra
Let me tell you what I see
Sodom and Gomorra

Got not law and order
Ruled by anarchy
It's here to stay

Chaos in the classroom
Kids are killing kids
Getting outta hand

Mothers and fathers - the sickening ones
Raping the children
At the end of a gun

Self-inflicted - life corrupting
Antisocial - controversial - living in sin

Sodom and Gomorra
Let me tell you what I see
Sodom and Gomorra
We're in a burning hell for all eternity

Sodom and Gomorra
You mustn't look back
To Sodom and Gomorra
Don't you look back -
to the essence of evil

This universe of hatred
Aggression is the force
Heading for oblivion
We're on collision-course

Evolution's over
The devil has prevailed
Heaven screams for vengeance
This is judgement day

Self-inflicted - life corrupting
Antisocial - controversial - living in sin

Sodom and Gomorra
Let me tell you what I see
Sodom and Gomorra
Forever ruled by anarchy

Sodom and Gomorra
Forever damned to purgatory
Sodom and Gomorra
3. The Beast Inside (5:57)
My mind is razor-sharp
And I'm wild-cat-mean
I'd like to shred your face
A danger to you
When I feel the urge
Deep down inside
I lose my human touch
I'm like a killing machine

I want to resist - but I can't hold it back
The beast is unleashed - it's got to attack
Again and again the force is too strong
It's breaching the chains

I've got the beast inside
Don't you trust in me
I've got the beast inside
Craving a victim - it's telling me to kill

I look through evil eyes
Prowling in the streets
In the dead of night
I'm a man on the hunt

I know my soul is under siege
Can't somebody stop me now
'cause I'm losing control

I've got the beast inside
Don't you trust in me
I know it must have been
the beast inside
It's driving me to kill

It's gotta be the beast - the beast - the beast
The beast - the beast - the beast - deep down inside

But when the deed is done
And the pain is gone
I feel renewed within
Until the voices return

The beast - the beast - the beast
The beast - the beast - the beast

My mind is razor-sharp
And I'm wild-cat-mean
I'd like to shred your face
I've told you before

When I feel the urge
Deep down inside
I lose my human touch
I'm just a killing machine

I want to resist -
but I can't hold it back
The beast is unleashed -
it's got to attack
Again and again the force is too strong
It's breaching the chains

It's gotta be the beast inside
Never ever trust in me
I know there is a beast inside
Inside in all of us

I feel I've got the beast inside
I'm screaming for help from this monster within
The beast inside - take a look in
the mirror - it's staring at you
Even at you - the beast inside
4. Dead On (4:52)
Zooming through the universe - on collision course
A meteor from outta space - gonna smash the earth
Head down to the trenches - to watch the bloody war
Nothing's gonna stop - the metal dinosaurs

Runaway train lost control - a thousand tons of steel
Overheated engines - the screaming of the wheels
A fighter in a boxing ring - takes the final blow
Opponent's on the canvas - lost by t.k.o.

Dead on - in a head-on collision
Dead on - like the hammer and the nail
Dead on - in a head-on collision
Dead on - like the hammer and the nail

From Belfast to Jerusalem - it's the living hell
Tuzla to Afghanistan - fighting tooth and nail
Death is irreversible - no matter what we try
Life is not recyclable - we are born to die

Dead on - in a head-on collision
Dead on - like the hammer and the nail
Dead on - in a head-on collision
Dead on - like the hammer and the nail

He was a teen spirit idol - loaded up his veins
He couldn't stand the pressure - so he terminates his brains
A renegade Red Indian - they called Geronimo
Cracked the white man's head - like the raging buffalo

Dead on - in a head-on collision
Dead on - like the hammer and the nail
Dead on - in a head-on collision
Dead on - like the hammer and the nail

Dead on - in a head-on collision
Dead on - like the hammer and the nail
Dead on - in a head-on collision
Dead on - like the hammer and the nail
5. Guns 'R' Us (4:40)
How about a mega-store
Full of guns to start a war
We're selling toys for fatal games
We'll take the credit not the blame

When they shoot the neighbours
Shoot the daughters
Shoot the sisters
Shoot the mutha's

It's a billion dollar industry
All in the same name of liberty

Guns Or' us
Guns Or' us - big toys buy big toys at
Guns Or' us
Guns Or' us

Living out the fantasy
Buy a dozen - get one free
Radar-guided - laser speed
Devastation guaranteed

Then they shoot the neighbours
Shoot the daughters
Shoot the brothers
Shoot the dog

It's a billion dollar industry
A constitutional guarantee

Guns Or' us
Guns Or' us - big toys buy big toys at
Guns Or' us - get a free magazine with your M-16
Guns Or' us - it's a one-day-sale

Gunned down int he neighbourhood
In the same of brotherhood
Black or white ain't worth a dime
Cut 'em down in zero time

It's shoot to kill - they shoot to kill
It's a human thrill just to shoot to kill

Then they shoot the neighbours
Shoot the daughters
Shoot the sisters
Shoot the mutha's

It's a billion dollar industry
All in the name of liberty

Guns Or' us
Guns Or' us - a final mega-blow - out-sale at
Guns Or' us - get your armour - piercing son of a bitch at
Guns Or' us - we accept your cash or credit cards
6. Like a Loaded Gun (4:18)
I'm victimized and tantalized
Brutalized and chained
They'll devastate - intoxicate
They're driving me insane - forever

They regulate - investigate
Complicate my life
Everyday insanity
There's nothing going right -
I mean forget it

I've been there before
Can't take it no more

That's why I'm like a loaded gun
A man with a mission
Like a loaded gun
I'm human ammunition

They mutilate and penetrate
They masturbate my brains
When all I need for sanity
Is love to ease my pain

I'm tortured, sick and tired
I'm that weapon to be fired
Overloaded - unexploded
Don't you make me cross the final line

I've been there before
I can't take it no more

That's why I'm like a loaded gun
I'm a man with a mission
Like a loaded gun
You can pull my trigger

Just like a loaded gun
On a social collision
See my eyes - I mesmerize
Read my lips - it's time to cut the crap

I've been there before
I can't take it no more

That's why I'm like a loaded gun
A man with a mission
Like a loaded gun
I'm human ammunition

Like a loaded gun
On a social collision
Like a loaded gun
I'm ready to explode -
like a loaded gun
7. What Else (4:38)
Heroes - keep dying
Nations - dividing
Principles - they're gone
It's war

Wallstreet - buy in politics
Jesus - up for sale
Do anything - for money
I'm a whore

What else - what's in it for me
What else
What else - what's in it for me
What else

Deadlines - headlines
Make me - the biggest star
I don't need personality
'cause it's war

I'm greedy - I'm deadly
Don't give a fuck anymore
Anything for money
I'm a whore
8. Stone Evil (5:52)
They terrorize and
tyrannize democracies
Their narrow minds still nothing
learned from history
The seeds of hate acquired from
their ancestry
Spreading like a cancer in societies

They've got the poison inside
Rivers of pesticide
Skin-headed minions -
they're deaf, dumb and blind
Machind-like in body - robotic in mind

Stone evil - inherited sin
Stone evil - infected from within

They can't leave it -
they can't break the spell
Under orders to obey
It was meant to last a thousand years
It took the world into dismay

Stone evil - stone evil

If you're gonna throw the torch at us
Don't expect to not get burned
It's time to stand - and fight the right
This is the lesson we have learned

They're marching to a different beat and glorify
The darkest times when innocent were crucified
They paralize and sterilize the masses' minds
They desecrate man's dignity - desensitize

They've got the poison inside
Rivers of pesticide
Skin-headed minions - they're deaf, dumb and blind
Machine-like in body - robotic in mind - evil

Stone evil - inherited sin
Stone evil - infected from within
Stone evil - inherited sin
9. Bad Habits Die Hard (4:41)
One step forward - two steps back
Living on the edge - it's as simple as that
I'm no Mr. Lucky - I've never been close
I'm higher than some - but I'm lower than most

Just when you thought that you'd got it made
The bitch draws blood again
You sow as you reap - the same mistakes
Buddy rings the bell - begin the same

Bad habits - bad habits die hard
Bad habits - bad habits die hard

I'm stuck in a rut - but I'm burning inside
I am what I am - just a low-down bum
Always end up in trouble - just trying to be good
But with tumbling dice - the sixes will come

Bad habits - bad habits die hard
I know I got a lot of bad habits - bad habits die hard
I bet you got 'em too

One step forward - two steps back
I get caught in the middle - nailed to the rack
Got a load of bad habits - corrupted within
I'm a freak of nature - full of vices and sins

Just when you thought that you'd got it made
The bitch draws blood again
You sow as you reap - the same mistakes
Buddy rings the bell - begin the game

Bad habits - bad habits die hard
Bad habits - bad habits die hard
I know I got a lot of bad habits - bad habits die hard
Everybody's got bad habits - bad habits die hard
10. Prejudice (4:14)
We grow and fertilize the semen of hate
Ignoring our ignorance - daring our fate
Predictions were made - generations were lost
While the seed is growing day by day in front of us

We buried tolerance and our respect
Became a breeding ground for social dismay
Whatever happened to the love-generation
With black and white hand in hand side by side

So preacher don't you preach
Hey teacher don't you teach

Prejudice - stop the hate
No more prejudice - I ain't losing my faith
Prejudice - stop the hate
No more prejudice - I ain't losing my faith
If we could manage just to get along
Instead of blaming each other for what's going wrong
Education is the secret - the future's in our hands
Burn the fields of hate and believe again

Teacher don't you teach
Preacher don't you preach
So teacher don't you teach me
Hey preacher don't you preach

Prejudice - stop the hate
No more prejudice - I ain't losing my faith
Prejudice - stop the hate
No more prejudice - I ain't losing my faith
Prejudice - prejudice

Judging one another by the colour of skin
Carefully covering our feelings within
We solve our problems with a kick in the face
We're living in a world judged by colour and race

So preacher don't you preach
Hey teacher don't you teach me
11. Bad Religion (4:41)
As long as I remember - I was left all by myself
When trouble crossed my way I stood alone
My old man hit the bottle - my mom was running scared
The old forgotten prayers turned to stone

I'm searching for identity - I don't show who I am
The past has cast a shadow over me

Like a bad religion - the only one I know
I never had no shelter - never had a place to go
A bad religion - my life is make-believe
Bad religion - I'm beggin' for relief

I tried to break the circle - to break the vicious spell
But the past is always heavy on my mind
I'm dancing with the devil - a dangerous romance
A daring way to leave it all behind

I'm searching for identity - I don't know who I am
The past has cast a shadow over me

Like a bad religion - the only one I know
I never had no shelter never had a place to go
A bad religion - my life is make-believe
Bad religion

I need someone to talk to - someone to understand
I need a friend to lend a helping hand
I'm gonna pull myself together - shed this battered skin
I'm ready for the challenge - this loser's out to win

Like a bad religion - the only one I know
I never had no shelter - never had a place to go
A bad religion - my life is make-believe
Bad religion - I'm beggin' for relief - bad religion
12. Generation Clash II (5:04)
Warnings surround you
That life ain't long
Same old stories
You've heard 'em before

They tell you to listen
To be like they've been
You carry a burden
Whatever you do

They never approve of
The things that you do
Revolution
In the heart of your home

But what do they do
To comfort you
At times when you don't feel alright

Generation Clash
Generation Clash - you got
the guts to go

Bitching forever
For wasting time
You better not worry
You're doing alright
They tell you to listen
To be like they've been

But what do they do
To comfort you
At times when you don't feel alright

Generation Clash
Generation Clash - you got
the guts to go
Generation Clash -
kiss those times goodbye
Generation Clash - you got
the guts to go

Generation Clash
Generation Clash - you got
the guts to go
Generation Clash -
kiss those times goodbye -
the times are gone for good
Generation Clash - you got
the guts to go

Generation Clash - oh it's the
generation Clash
Generation Clash - nothing ventured
nothing gained - so get alive
Generation Clash ...
13. Writing on the Wall (4:25)
A thousand years from now on
The flame of life's gone out
The earth - a frozen wasteland
No living trace - no sounds

The world did die in anguish
The ashes turned tu dust
Fire and ice - blackness of night
Man's evolution has lost

Don't tell me that we didn't know
And that we haven't been told
The final S.O.S. we all ignored

We've seen the writing on the wall
The writing on the wall

The science of the madman
Was getting out of control
For every creature comfort
There is a heavy toll

We turned on mother nature
Stabbed her deep in the back
We ripped out her lungs - poisoned her veins
Internal acid attack

Don't tell me that we didn't know
And that we've never been told
The final S.O.S. we all ignored

We've seen the writing on the wall
The writing on the wall
Seen the writing on the wall

I'm just painting a picture
Of how it could be
But time's running out - the lock's ticking down
You're not blind - can't you see

Don't tell me that we still don't know
And that we're not being told
The final S.O.S. we shouldn't ignore
Just read the writing on the wall
The writing on the wall
Read the writing on the wall
The writing on the wall
