Beast on My Back (B.O.M.B.) Lyrics

(8)
Submitted by level Wait
1. Breakout (5:06)
Murder, death, pain
Tears of frustration
Danger lurking everywhere
Destroying our nation
Problems everyday
Generate forever
Anxiety’s steady note
Is now a screech of terror

Child alcoholics
Fathers raping daughters
Madness in the family
Illness and disorders
Medicine that kills
Food that cuts the throat
Innocent people murdered
While malicious madmen gloat

Child alcoholics
Fathers raping daughters
Madness in the family
Illness and disorders
Medicine that kills
Food that cuts the throat
Innocent people murdered
While malicious madmen gloat

Panic invades the safety of our home
Shiver ‘neath your covers
You feel you’re not alone
Images of fear cause an icy frission
Chilled to the bone by a bloody vision

Panic invades the safety of our home
Shiver ‘neath your covers
You feel you’re not alone
Images of fear cause an icy frission
Chilled to the bone by a bloody vision

It seems the world has gone mad
Value of life distorted
Murder, death, pain, rape, and drugs
Are the things the papers have reported

Breakout, breakout
Breakout, hell on earth
Breakout, breakout
Breakout, (from this) hell on earth

Evil abounds but we can surely flee
No need to live under the dread of a sick society
Rebuking what is vile, living in the light
Protection from destruction
We’re always in his sight
Protection from destruction
That wasteth at noonday
Man may kill the body
The soul he can’t take away
Safety in the refuge
At the right hand we must fall
And those who wage against us
Shall be nothing at all, at all

Breakout!
2. Jimmies Dream (3:12)
Jimmy was a typical regular guy
Never contemplating what might happen if he died
People tried to tell him but all he did was sighed
They walked away without guilt
Knowing that they tried

Life was going smooth
Everything seems really cool
Working on the weekends
Doing good in school
Jimmy had no problems
He had money, he had health
No need for nothing
Nothing but himself

Then one night he had a strange dream
Images so vivid it could have been reality
An ugly head was raised
Jim let out a scream
I’m glad I wasn’t there
It would have got the best of me

Then one night he had a strange dream
Images so vivid it could have been reality
An ugly head was raised
Jim let out a scream
I’m glad I wasn’t there
It would have got the best of me

Then it all started and the chase began
His neck was within inches
Of the deadly clutching hand
Tossing and turning, all to no avail
Once you think you’ve lost the beast
He’s racing down, racing down your trail

Feet feeling heavy
Eyes stung with sweat
Darkness approaching
Traps of death have been set
Feet feeling heavy
Eyes stung with sweat
Darkness approaching
Traps of death have been set

What a bitch
His dream became real
No one was around
Who might care now?
He would feel
His bed became a sweaty
Sweaty place of death
His fate had been decided
Long before his dying breath

What a bitch
His dream became real
No one was around
Who might care now?
He would feel
His bed became a sweaty
Sweaty place of death
His fate had been decided
Long before his dying breath

No, it’s not a dream
Don’t even waste your breath
With those screams
“Jimmy!” Mom calls out of bed
Jimmy can’t hear you, Ma
Jimmy’s dead!
3. Charge (3:13)
Eighteen and eight was the date that the match was to begin
The king had said, “The princess will wed the worthy knight that wins”
Yes, a princess, a virgin maid, one day she will be queen
And now two men chance to join her as others only dream
Both know the risk at hand; both men feel it’s worth the prize
To join the creed which rules the land and claim the beauty as their bride

Horns shall sound, hooves will pound
Fear fills each man’s head
“Triumph mine or I may wind
Yes, I may wind up dead!”

I’m the master of a fine brigade, hoping to join the noble line
One day spread joy through this land and detach what is malign
And the other man thinks to himself “It is I who shall reign today,
Smite the king, take his seat and forever have my way”

Horns shall sound, hooves will pound
Fear fills each man’s head
“Triumph mine or I may wind
Yes, I may wind up dead!”

Charge – the time’s at hand
I’ve the chance to rule the land
Charge – Reward of power
Outcome known within the hour
Charge – The crowd shall see
I will gain nobility
Charge – The lance shall tell
Potentate or bid farewell

A thrust in fury
Determination mixed with fear
A lunge too far to the left
The lance slices the air

Relief dwells upon each man
Sweat drips ‘neath steel armature
There is no doubt the match goes on
Hooves shall fly once more

Charge!
4. Initial Shock (5:00)
5. I Am He (3:27)
House of God burnt to the ground
Many feel it’s for the best
Associates of the holy one
Cannot put their lust to rest

Contamination of the pure
People cringe at the sound
Glory turns into shame
Obstructions block the glory bound

Hypocrite, what have you done?
Threaten lives of everyone

Mortal man claims messiah
Saying “I am He”
Wolf in sheep’s clothing
Deadly with deceit

Mortal man claims messiah
Saying “I am He”
Wolf in sheep’s clothing
Deadly with deceit

Why…did I believe?
Ears deafened to the call
False prophet claims the fall

Foolish men prophesize
With visions, visions in their eyes
Wayward child full of lies
Leads the weak to their demise
Foolish men prophesize
With visions, visions in their eyes

Hypocrite, what have you done?
Threaten lives of everyone

Messiah I am He
I’m deadly with deceit
No image to be seen
I am He
6. The Connection (3:05)
Young and innocent, unknowing and naïve
This is the perfect target for her to deceive
Instilling such a fear, destroying young perception
Creating the connection between women and deception

Something in those…
Told me you would…
She always leaves her mark
Her plan works out so well
She takes you by the hand
And drags you through her hell
Something in those eyes!

At the start it seemed so perfect
It felt like a dream
But time reveals those hidden defects
She wasn’t quite as cool as she first seemed
Her hug becomes a strange hold
And eyes of blue turned hard and cold
A hand to hold was hard to find
The sweetest smile hid the evil mind

Got a hunger for a feeling
Are you capable of a warm embrace?
Close my eyes, you’re not
Concentrate and rearrange your face
Got a need you can feed
My hated lover, I feel so out of place
You produce and I consume
But love, well babe, not a trace

Those eyes…kill me
Your eyes…kill me

When you’re screaming and complaining
I’ve got the power to change the mood
Gonna bring you down, make you rise above
Got the motions, just don’t got the love

Those eyes…kill me
Your eyes…kill me

I’m not strong, just broken hearted
Memories last so long
Still the same since she’s departed
Some say, “Time heals wounds”
Well, I’m still bleeding
They’re full of shit
So much time has passed
But this pain just won’t quit

Got to meet you once more
So you’ll realize
Just what you have created
As I kill you with these eyes
7. Rejuvenate (3:48)
Today’s a new day
Time to put the plan to work
Generate the new way
I hope it works
Gotta kick the habit
Put the old man to rest
Worldliness, well I’ve had it
Think you’re getting more
But you’re getting less
Got to take your problems
Drop them in the sea
The charges are behind you
You’ve done the time
And now you’re free

People try to bring us down
We don’t need their kind around
Rejuvenation can still be found
Don’t need no one to keep you tied
Or keep you bound

Start today, it’s not too late – Rejuvenate
Make a change, no time to wait – Rejuvenate
No big deal, you made a few wrong moves – Try again
Don’t give up, things’ll start to groove – Try again
Right Now!

Again problems start coming down
Deal with one and another one’s found
Back in the ring for another round
You knew it was coming
You knock it down, knock it down

Again problems start coming down
Deal with one and another one’s found
Back in the ring for another round
You knew it was coming
You knock it down

Rejuvenation today
Do it now!
8. Remembering Tomorrow (5:01)
In the beginning there was beauty
Untouched by hands of men
Those days were so long ago
Today no one remembers when

Destruction devised by those in control
They’ll be long gone and we’ll pay the toll
Consciousness void, lives are at stake
Ignoring the risks, it’s a chance they take

Toxins splash in our face
Catalystic vehicle quickens the pace
Balance corrupted claim to leap ahead
No place goes uncorrupted
Respect for life is dead

Elements tampered with, justified by science
Little man denying God, driven with defiance
Man confides in man, believing he’s efficient
The time will come when all is done
We’ll find he’s insufficient

Fools conducting nuclear testing
It’s our children they’re molesting
Arrogance is evident it’s seen in our ways
Destroy the natural flow
Ignorance on display

How can we call this progress at all!

Living lives just to please themselves
Committing crimes to increase their wealth
This is greed in its worth state
Who are they to play with our fate?
Death and pain coming from all sides
Love and peace never crossed their minds

Metal machinery seems to be jammed
Devastating mishap, a cog in the plan
Testing this, testing that, surely leave our mark
Man is in control, these ages are dark!
9. Beast On My Back (3:04)
I’ve made a few mistakes
Don’t think I’ll ever live them down
I’m a prisoner of guilt
To my past forever bound

To follow the straight and narrow was always on my mind
But I let my guard down, I tripped the line
Never ever thought I would take a fall
Didn’t think it would happen, no I was too strong

Forever haunted by a beast on my back
Deceitful temptation, a planned attack
I’m a victim of the evil one
Can’t turn around, live my life on the turn
My mind’s plagued with guilt
‘Til the day I die
I want to live a better life
Believe me I try
Prayed that the past would soon disappear
No matter how hard I try
My memory is clear

The wicked law prevails
Intentions have turned sour
Intensity of evil grows
Stronger by the hour

Once again I’ve lost my balance
And stumbled to the ground
Will I ever be free?
How long shall I be bound?

I despise the vice I worship
Hope it’s not too late
A weak and spineless victim
Doing what I hate

Temptations – seize me and I become a slave
Succumbing – to human nature
No man can save me!

Beast on my back
In agony I dwell
Beast on my back
This is a living hell

I’ve felt this way before
So empty inside
Trust the promises of the world
To find out that they’ve lied
The nightmare is now over
The scars shall never fade
Etched into my memory
Are the mistakes that I have made

What a wretched being
Such unease!
Trapped within this shell of death
Rescue me!
Alas! The spirit of life
Freed from sin!
The fight is not yet over
But we’ll win!
Win!
