1. On Your Feet or on Your Knees (2:34)
I was looking at the T.V. news,
People everywhere blowing a fuse
People everywhere under the gun,
Little kids dying never had no fun

Human beings ain't got no brains
Think you're better but you're all the same
Think you're clever but you're all to blame
Here we are again in the same old frame

Shut up, I'm talking to you,
It's on television so it can't be true
And I can't play that game no more,
Wake up and see it through
Kill the many to save the few,
I know what the blind man sees
On your feet or on your knees

Headline terror crime on rise,
Half ain't true and the rest is lies
Same old smile on the same old face,
Same old horse win the same old race

I wouldn't smile if I was you,
Don't relax, 'cos it ain't so new
Watch your back, light the light outside,
Somebody comin' that you just can't bribe

Shut up, I'm talking to you,
It's on television so it can't be true
But I can't believe their lies no more,
Watch out, I'm comin' through,
Boogey man gonna bite you too,
I know what the blind man sees
On your feet or on your knees


I was reading some magazine,
It was written for human beings
Can't believe the stuff I read,
Human trash for human heads

You humans don't be so proud,
You humans don't talk too loud
You humans just ain't too smart,
It's enough to break my human heart

Listen up, I'm talking to you
Pay attention 'cos I mean you too
And I will tell you something new
Your values ain't worth a dime
Human rights just human crime
I know what the blind man sees
On your feet or on your knees
2. Burner (2:52)
Riots in the burning street
Crystal night outside
Brutal music in the night, enough to make you cry
Nobody knows how it is to scream and drown the world
I am the midnight snake to bite your little girls

Outside in the distance, the city in the fire
See the houses burning down, mile after mile
I don't think you know about your future yet
I don't think you're gonna like the one you're going to get
Ghost rider in the sky

Burner

Lights outside my window, victims on the floor
Rats in all the bedrooms, thunder at the door
Nobody knows anything, kill and wear a smile
Here comes the pirates baby, don't' you touch that dial
You will never hurt me, you won't put me down
This ain't no circus and I sure don't need no clowns

I will be the one you can't be
I will see the things that you can't see
Demons blind your eyes

Burner

Beat me like a hammer, baby, stick me like a pig
Throw me to the lions, baby, wear me like a wig
I am not only one to walk into the fire
I would rather burn than let them make me a liar
I cannot be beaten, I cannot be like you
I cannot be otherwise, no matter what you do

I am the voice of broken glass
I am the voice to drive you mad at last
I am the truth, the liar turned around

Burner
Burner
Burner
Burner anyway
3. Death or Glory (4:50)
I saw the millions, the naked and the dead
I saw the city streets running bloody red
I saw a thousand bombers circle in the sky
I saw the firestorm fifty stores high

I saw a hundred thousand scream and burn
I saw the armored wheels grind and turn
Universal soldier, doomed to live to tell
Fight and die forever, burn in bloody hell

Death or Glory, Death or Glory
March forever in the sound and fury
Death or Glory, Death or Glory
Blood and iron it's the same old story

I held the Iron Cross, first class with the swords
I marched with Hitler down the bloody road to war
I was at Jutland loding 'till the gun was hot,
Killed at Trafalgar without firing a shot

I was at Moscow, burning in my tank
I was at Shiloh, marching in the ranks
I was a Sturmbannfuhrer fighting in Berlin
I was a Russian Hero dying for Stalin

Death or glory, Death or glory
March forever in the sound and fury
Death or glory, Death or glory
Blood and iron it's the same old story

I swung a saber and I was a young Hussar
I was a Cossack, fighting for the Czar
I was a Viking, Berserker from the North
A Roman Gladiator murdered just for sport

I was with Bonaparte I died at Waterloo
I was a Frankish Knight, a Polish Jew
I was a Spartan in the Trojan Wars
I was a warrior for Crazy Horse

Death or Glory, Death or Glory
March forever in the sound and fury
Death or Glory, Death or Glory
The Loner Survivor but no comfort for me
Death or Glory, Death or Glory
Executioner, Judge and Jury
Death or Glory, Death or Glory
Blood and iron it's the same old story
Auf Stehen!!!
4. I Am the Sword (4:28)
Murder I am, you know it was me
I was the one, that you didn't see
I was the cut, down to you bone
I put you there under that stone

I, I am the blade, I am the dream of the brave
I, I am the knife, I bring grief to you wife
I, I am the sword, I am the word of the Lord

Do what you will, I bring you the edge
I am the one to sever your head
I cut so deep, I can cut straight
All depends on the moves you make

I, I am the blade, I am the promise unmade
I, I am the knife, I bring death to your life
I, I am the ax, to stop you dead in your tracks
I, I am the sword, I bring the fear of the Lord

Centuries pass, dust in the wind
I shall remain, shining in sin
The metal I am, the iron you feel
The song of the dead, the chorus of steel

I, I am the blade, I break the oath that you made
I, I am the mace, I am the blow in the face
I, I am the ax, to cut down heroes like rats
I, I am the sword, I do the work of the Lord
5. Born to Raise Hell (4:58)
Listen up here, I'll make it quite clear
I'm gonna put some boogie in your ear
Shake and bop, don't you stop
Dance like a maniac until you drop

I don't mind, I don't mind
I can run a razor right up your spine
What are you waiting for
What do you think you were created for

Show us, you care, show us you dare
You don't know what happened, not if you weren't there

Born to raise hell, Born to raise hell
We know how to do it and we do it real well
Born to raise hell, Born to raise hell
Voodoo medicine cast my spell
Born to raise hell, Born to raise hell
Play that guitar just like ringing a bell

Take it or leave it

Going for broke, rock 'til you choke
It don't matter if you drink or smoke
Speak through the beat, get up on your feet
Sweating like a hound dog, white as a sheet

Don't you be scared, don't you be scared
Everybody terrified, it don't seem fair
What are you waiting for
What do you think you were created for

Out of your seat, blind in the heat
Do the nasty boogie mama, stomp your feet

Born to raise hell, Born to raise hell
We know how to do it and we do it real well
Born to raise hell, Born to raise hell
Go back to zero take a pill and get well
Born to raise hell, Born to raise hell
Be a good soldier and die where you fell


Born to raise hell, Born to raise hell
We know how to do it and we do it real well
Born to raise hell, Born to raise hell
Go on out and boogie 'cos you never can tell
Born to raise hell, Born to raise hell
Be a good soldier and die where you fell
Born to raise hell, Born to raise hell
We know how to do it and we do it real well
6. Don't Let Daddy Kiss Me (4:05)
Little girl sleeping in dreams of peace
Mommy been gone a long time
Daddy comes home and she still sleeps
Waiting for the world worst crime
And he comes up the stairs like he always does

And he never turns on the light
And she's wide awake, scared to death
She smells his lust and she smells his sweat
Curled in a ball she holds her breath

Praying to a God that she's never met
Don't let Daddy kiss me, don't let Daddy kiss me
Goodnight

Little girl lies by her Daddy's side
And she listens to him breathe
She knows there's something awful wrong
That she's far too young to see

And she knows she can't tell anyone
She's too full of guilt and shame
And if she tells she'll be all alone
They'd steal her Daddy and they'd steal her home

And it's not so bad when Daddy leaves her alone
Praying to her God with his heart of stone
Don't let Daddy kiss me, don't let Daddy kiss me
Goodnight

Why, tell me why,
The worst crime, in the world

And so Daddy lies by his daughter's side
And he sleeps deep and well
No nightmares come to him tonight
Though his daughter lives in hell

For his seed is sown where it should not be
But the beast in his mind don't care
And the only sound are tears that fell
Little girl turns her face to the wall

She knows that no-one hears her call
But it seems that God hears nothing at all
Don't let Daddy kiss me, don't let Daddy kiss me
Goodnight
7. Bad Woman (3:16)
Shoot me down, baby look at you move
Dancing like you ain't got a thing to lose
Your fight for breath
Way you look scare a man to death

I can't speak, my heart's on fire
You're the focus of my desire
Can't be real, can't be true
You might be a virgin, but you ain't brand new

I know you're a bad, bad woman
Turn around and you'll see me coming
I know you're a bad, bad woman
Good enough for me

Here I come baby watch my smoke
Gotta getcha and it ain't no joke
I hope your body ain't telling me lies
You bring a tear to my lying eyes

I wish I could, I wish I might
Get the wish I wish tomight
Drive me crazy turn me inside put
Gotta have you baby, ain't no doubt

I know you're a bad, bad woman
Turn around and you'll see me coming
I know you're a bad, bad woman
Good enough for me

Give it up baby, let me jump your bones
Fired up, almost grown
Can't believe you want me too
Here I come honey, woop - de - do

I know you're a bad, bad woman
One look and you set me running
I know you're a bad, bad woman
Good enough for me
8. Liar (4:12)
Liar -
You take your hand from me
I'll tear it from your wrist
Just take your hand from me
Liar -
Your mouth is ashes dog, do not presume
To fool me with your tales of god
Liar -
Promises of Heaven now
You cannot truly think you are the seven now
Liar -
And I will challenge you
All my life I swear that I will challenge you

I will be the watcher, and I will never sleep
Many miles before me, and promises to keep
Driving out the demons, and bring them all to trial
I see the face that cannot smile

Liar -
You should be burning now, I know you are
The face and it is turning now
Liar -
Your words are filth and false
You are the vile partner in the final waltz
Liar -
I will be rid of you, a good day in my life
I will be rid of you
Liar -
I see your eyeless smile
There is no other thing upon this world so vile

I will be the hero, and I can do no more
I can be the hero, as I have been before
I can take your places that you have never seen
I can make you pleased that you are clean

Killer -
Do not presume I'm fooled
You kill the hearts of many but I'll break your rules
Killer -
Don't show your teeth to me
I'll pull your teeth and feed you with them, count on me
Killer -
I am thy killer too
I am the frightful thing that always follows you

Liar -
I am thy Nemesis
I always knew one day that it would come to this

Why the world is wicked
I know the reason now
Why the world is wicked
I know that it's allowed
I can never leave it the way it was before
I can never disobey - the law
9. Lost in the Ozone (3:27)
I am a drifter on a hungry empty sea
There is no one on earth to rescue me
The winter storms they freeze me
Summer burned alive
I can't remember when another soul passed by

Marooned and stranded, on the Islands of the Damned
There is no one on earth to take my hand
There is no voice to speak, no soul for company
The sun goes down like blood into the Western Sea

Alone and dying, and a thousand miles from home
I know I never was so broken and alone
I searched the sky for God, shivered to the bone
Drowned in sorrow, Lost in the Ozone

No hand for me, abandon me
Wash over me, watch over me, drowned forever

Alone and crying, and a thousand miles astray
Alone upon the cruel sea, forsworn and cast away
I turned my face to god, but his face was turned away

Lost in the Ozone, nothing left to say
Lost in the Ozone, nothing left to say
Nothing left to say, nothing left to say
Wash over me
10. I'm Your Man (3:28)
Back to back, you see me now
Show me what you're hiding here
I can't move if I don't sing
I can't stand I got no chair

Can't see me, I'm the man, ain't no joke
Can't see me, master plan, up in smoke
Can't hear me, I'm so loud, suits me fine
Can't hear me, I ain't proud, all the time

Follow me, and don't you move
Stop at nothing, show your teeth
I can see you I'm not deaf
Two years later, twice a week

Can't see me, I'm the man, laid in bed
Can't see me, give a damn, Motorhead
Can't hear me, up your way, ring your chimes
Can't hear me, I can't stay, all the time


I can't tell you it ain't me
I won't be no beast up there
Turn me 'round 'cos I can't dance
Be a spaceship, I don't care

Can't hear me, stand up straight, row my boat
Can't hear me, hit the deck, fishtail goat
Can't see me on the game, ain't no crime,
Can't see me, aeroplane, all the time
11. We Bring the Shake (3:48)
We bear your names, we come to you
We own the game we run to you
We bring the blazing sun to you
We bring the blazing gun to you

We are your children grown and strange
We are your children unashamed
You breed contempt we mock you now
We bring the shake to rock you now

We bring the shake, we bring the shake
We say these things to shock you now
We bring the shake to rock you now

We bring the shake, we bring the shake
We say these things to shock you now
We bring the shake to rock you now

We climbed into the mean machine
We saw the ad, we bought the dream
We are the victims of neglect
We will not be what you expect

We are your children, strange and weird
We are your children, free and clear
You breed contempt we mock you now
We bring the shake to rock you now

We bring the shake, All hearts to break
We bring these words to mock you now
We bring the shake to rock you now
We bring the shake, All hearts to break
We bring these words to mock you now
We bring the shake to rock you now


The only thing that I regret
I didn't take what I could get
You owe us much, you owe us life
We owe you nothing eat the knife
We are your children chosen few
We are your children come to you
We bring the world to shock you now
We bring the shake to rock you now

We bring the shake, for goodness' sake
We bring the truth to mock you now
We bring the shake to rock you now

We bring the shake, for goodness' sake
We bring the truth to mock you now
We bring the shake to rock you now


We bring the shake, we bring the shake
We bring the shake to shock you now
We bring the shake to rock you now
12. Devils (6:00)
Hear my voice, hear my voice, hear my voice
Make your choice, make your choice, make your choice
Beat the drum, beat the drum, beat the drum
Hide the sun, hide the sun, hide the sun

Devils in my head tonight
All is wrong if it's not right, take care
Whispers in the walls I hear
Nothing ever made quite clear, beware

Go to hell, go to hell, go to hell
Make me well, make me well, make me well
Show your hand, show your hand, show your hand
Make a stand, make a stand, make a stand

Angels in my heart tonight
Say the word and make it right, so dark
Angels flying in my dreams
All is never what it seems, take heart


Speak my name, speak my name, speak my name
Feel no shame, feel no shame, feel no shame
Take your time, take your time, take your time
You are mine, you are mine, you are mine

Monsters in my eyes today
I can't make them go away, it's true
Strangers in the world it seems
Nightmare visions, fever, dreams
I dream of you

Angels in my heart tonight...
