Victims of Science Lyrics

(9)
Submitted by level DaveÅkerfeldt
1. Endangered Species (3:39)
Nightmare of death strikes us all
Precaution to prevent disaster
In the grip of fear mistakes are made
And paranoia becomes the master
We cannot trust the senile fool
Who rules our petty nation
We put our faith in technology
To save us from obliteration

In the race to win priorities lost
Victory assured at what cost?
Defense network spread far and wide
Works off human sacrifice
Radiation that leaves us dead
Won't harm circuits encased in lead
Countries of the world are robbed of life
Battles are waged by satellites

Machines are given full reign
Electronic soldiers feel no pain
If they win who's to gain?
Your fate is sealed by emotionless steel

Laser beams striking down
Premonitions of death for those on the ground
Man has created his own misery
What a bloodthirsty creature he has turned out to be
The earth lies stagnant in radioactive decay
Man is now fading away
Victims of the holocaust live in fear
For they soon know another war will be here

Machines are given full reign
Electronic soldiers feel no pain
If they win who's to gain?
Your fate is sealed by emotionless steel

Machines in power their purpose decreed
Annihilate the enemy
The humans that remain want the war to stop
They just can't turn the damn things off
Robot soldiers stalking the plains
Striking down the humans that remain
Rebuilding armies on the assembly line

So we can go to war one more time
2. Fossilized (3:55)
Four and a half million years ago
The earth was lifeless and new
Life forms starting to appear
And fossils are the clues

Slowly migrating from the sea
To one day dominate the land
Early reptilians had evolved
Millions of years before man

Unchallenged masters of their world
One hundred forty million year reign
Reptilian gods stalking the earth
Undisturbed primal and serene

Mountains of flesh shaking the ground
Armored like a living tank
While our ancestors rodent-like
Trampled underfoot

Our minds can't conceive the forms of life
That have lived here before us
On the sites where our cities sprawl
Herds grazed and continued to evolve

Man's time on earth is barely a blink
Of the eye of time
Our destination is written in bones
And our predecessors fossilized

No seven day miracle created our world
From the void delivered
We have only just learned to walk
Once we had to slither

Our kind will vanish as did theirs
Leaving only traces entombed
Till those who follow unearth our remains
What will their studies conclude?

Engine of death in its highest form
Carnivore evolved to perfection
Modern predators so insignificant
Up against this tyrant king

What catastrophe fell from the skies
Ending their domination?
Wiped off the face of the earth
Not one survived extinction

Man's time on earth is barely a blink
Of the eye of time
Our destination is written in bones
And our predecessors fossilized
3. Shock Treatment (2:52)
Psychosis
Pathologically driven to homicide
Perception torn apart

Confined to his padded cell
Foaming at the mouth
In his private hell

Frozen minds, wretched lives
Lightning strikes and they're neutralized
Therapy of misery
Electrical lobotomy

Electrodes wired to the brain
A jolt of reality
For the insane

Power surge, sensory overload
Strapped tightly down
Until convulsions cease

Frozen minds, wretched lives
Lightning strikes and they're neutralized
Therapy of misery
Electrical lobotomy

Wheeled into the room where you'll be from now on
Strait-jacket unnecessary your resistance is gone
Vegetable in the corner staring into space
You're easier to deal with in a catatonic state

Give me shock treatment!
4. Victims of Science (3:41)
Minds conceive weapons to destroy
Chemical cancer created for war
Biological weapons with degenerative effects
An unfortunate fate for life it infects

Mass murder descending in sickly clouds
Victims of Science litter the ground
Stillborn mutants dying at the moment of birth
Weapons of this war poison the earth

Pacifist protest the slaughter must stop
As the environment falls apart
Chemical recall the toxic waste
Safely disposed of in a harmless place

Buried underground, dumped in the sea
Contaminate our bodies gradually
Our chromosomes filled with degradation
Passing on the curse to the next generation

Mass murder descending in sickly clouds
Victims of Science litter the ground
Stillborn mutants dying at the moment of birth
Weapons of this war poison the earth

Life as we know it will soon cease to exist
From this chemical poisoning
We've no cure for it
Nothing shall survive nuclear holocaust
Mankind is doomed
And all life is lost

[Lead: Rick]

Mass murder descending in sickly clouds
Victims of Science litter the ground
Stillborn mutants dying at the moment of birth
Weapons of this war poison the earth

[Lead: Scott]
5. Gutter Rats (4:15)
No one knows what goes on beneath our feet
An evil swarm has gathered below the street
Driven to a frenzy by atomic breath
Matted fur and fangs, swarming death
Ancient instinct gives the long awaited command
Day of retribution is now at hand
Gutter rats armed with claws of steel
The need to kill is all they feel

Lunging and plunging their fangs
Deep in the veins of the old
Mocking the laws of science
That we have been told
Killing and spilling our blood
Until the first red dawn
Lusting and trusting the feeling
That drives them on

Swarms fill the streets and the gutters run red
Rats infest piles of the dead
Nature's revenge against the human race
Lunging rabid for your fucking face
6. Walking Plague (4:13)
Polluted and black with rotten decay
The bitch wears a virgin's mask
Unending lust for a power thrust
Has made her a walking plague

She enters your life for just one night
She's gone before the morning light
She's left behind a little surprise
That lingers though she's gone

No longer human, a walking plague
No longer human, she's a walking plague

Incubating deep inside
The virus spreads corruption
Unaware you carry the seed
Of your own destruction

No longer human, a walking plague
No longer human, she's a walking plague

Breaking down all defenses
Immunities as one
Discharge dripping from your dick
Infection has begun

Sex-spawned death destroys your body
The end draws closer each day
The only cure for this nightmare
Disease is still several years away

Unjustly condemned you take your revenge
Against the female race
By infecting every one that you can
And laughing in their face

No longer human, a walking plague
No longer human, you're the walking plague
7. Chemical Imbalance (4:16)
Autonomic reactions maintaining life
Not conscious to what is going on
A stable internal environment is what is needed
To maintain your life form
Sickness sets in to hinder and destroy
Your central nervous system
Impaired brain and spine just a matter of time
Delusions entering your mind

Fluids are surging inside your vein
Intensity of pain inside your brain
Chemical Imbalance

Suddenly a stranger to those I know
As the madness within me continues to grow
DNA dysfunction screaming in pain
A part of me that cant be changed
Abnormal brain the symptoms get worse
Multiple disorders subsequently the curse
Disorder derangement of neurological function
Psychoactive drugs have little effect
Injections of lithium ease mental pain
Just an illusion still quite insane
Chemical imbalance

[Lead: Scott]

Addicted to drugs that give me sanity
Warped visions of your reality
See the maggots crawling on my flesh
Devouring me

Plagued by oppressors only I can see
That doesn't lessen their death threat to me
They'll know I was right when they find my corpse
Mutilated

[Lead: Rick]

The presence of toxins sets in motion
A vicious chemical cycle
Suddenly a stranger to those that I know
As the madness within me continues to grow
DNA dysfunction screaming in pain
A part of me that cant be changed
Abnormal brain the symptoms get worse
Multiple disorders subsequently the curse

Injections of lithium ease mental pain
Just an illusion still quite insane
Chemical Imbalance
8. Incubus (4:00)
Unsolved rapes in your neighborhood
Hitting close to home

Your friends molested by an unseen thing
That strikes them when alone

Walking home you feel the gaze
Of malevolent eyes
Filled with terror your are nevertheless
Wet between the thighs

Pray for mercy
Pray for death
Pray you're spared the clawed caress
The hatred that dwells in all of us
Manifest the Incubus

Night falls
I enter your room with a serpent's hiss
Red eyes piercing the black
Moonlight illuminates your naked body
Lying on your back
Spread your legs and usher me in
I've yet to be turned down
Your body licked by the flames of the pit as I begin to pound

Pray for mercy
Pray for death
Pray you're spared the clawed caress
The hatred that dwells in all of us
Manifest the Incubus

My source is ancient evil deeds
Their memory keeps me alive
Personification of human cruelty
In dreams I materialize

Blood engorged evil swollen with hate
You cannot take it all
Scream in pain until I'm done
No one shall hear your call
My desire satisfied I leave you now
Sprawled on blood stained sheets
Down the hall to your mother's room
Where she soundly sleeps

Pray for mercy
Pray for death
Pray you're spared the clawed caress
The hatred that dwells in all of us
Manifest the Incubus
9. Observations (2:23)
Aerosol damaged ozone layer
Skin cancer cases increase
Human shit, A.I.D.S. tainted blood
Washed up on the beach
Drano snorting, your face contorting
Force your body to accept more
Sweating in the blood bank, selling a pint
Back to the crack house to score.

Observe, and tell me what you see
Turn your back, blind to reality
Society condemns its own fate
Wake up before it's too fucking late

Radon gas entering your home
Silent invisible death
Pesticides in your lunch
Nicotine on your breath
Preschool junkie raped by her father
By day he's the mayor of your city
A community full of back stabbing scum
No friends, no love, no pity

Observe, and tell me what you see
Turn your back, blind to reality
Society condemns its own fate
Wake up before it's too fucking late

Observe, and tell me what you see
Turn your back, blind to reality
Society condemns its own fate
Wake up before it's too fucking late
