Ironbound Lyrics

(10)
Submitted by level
1. The Green And Black (8:14)
Mama's revolution has all gone into black
Sin through seven deadly holes, lines up behind your back
I do enjoy your company, we travel in a pack
Bloodstains and scars the badges of the green and black

YOU AND ME
ETERNITY
YOU AND ME
FOREVER WE....FLY

Hey maybe you're a minute away
You can't get her with nothing to say
And Once you're in, you're never going back
Hey maybe you just don't care
You can't get here and you can't get there
Once you're gone, you're never going back
The green and black

Filthy, little secrets, hide inside your head
Right behind your values, kept until you're dead
I do enjoy the language, nor understand what's said
I fill the holes with madness, green and black and red

SHOCK
WE GET TO SLIPPING AWAY
YOU GET THE BREAKDOWN
WE GET THE JOKE OF THE DAY
YOU GET THE SHAKEDOWN
SHOCK, BLIND, RUN AND
GIVE IT A PLAY
LOAD TEN TON AND
SLIPPING AWAY
WE GET THE SLIPPING AWAY
BUT YOU GET THE MELTDOWN
COME ON SLIPPING AWAY
GIVE ME THE BREAKDOWN
SLIPPING AWAY
2. Ironbound (6:35)
One by one, doing the crime
Never thought twice, never did time
Never turn back, never go home
Never get used to being alone
One by one, into the sea
Too many eyes are staring at me
Two by two, watch as they go
Who are you and what do you know
I got your heart in hand
Never let go

Make it/Take it
Never let go/Tell all you know
This is what you make it, pound the ground
Make it/Take it
Never let go/Tell all you know
How far can you take it as you go...Ironbound

Two by two, iron to bend
Keeping the oath, right to the end
Three by three, breaking some bones
Snapping some neck, never alone
Here they come, rumble and pound
Never get used to hearing that sound
There they go, fast as they came
Never go back, never the same

All my friends are green & black
All my friends are right
All my friends are automatic
They all rule the night
All my friends are think & thin
They've loyalty and heart
Said all of them are green and black
Everyone is right
All my friends are automatic
Born to rule the night
3. Bring Me The Night (4:18)
I never cared too much, acquired mental health
I let my reputation speak just for itself

I never liked the rules that came 'long with the game
Take me back where the whisper knows my name

Ready to fly; and I'm ready to die
Scare the angel, fly away
Let the devil have his way
Tie your tongue into a knot
Pray to God it never stops
Ready to fly; and I'm ready to die
Fuel me up, let me go
Shut your mouth, going to blow
Hold your ears and shield your eyes
Just a word to the wise

Bring me the night

Electric hammered-run over - knocked around
I won't stay lying on the ground
Take the action it's no good for me
Let's go addiction, call it what you please

Bring me the night
4. The Goal Is Your Soul (6:43)
A lifelong list of Sundays, wrapped up with a bow
Justifies the greatest answers, that you may never know
The fallen is the viper, reap now what you sow
Screaming from the mountain tops, let his people go
He's down, in hot damnation,
So down like you'll never know
Going down to sweet temptation
Let his people go

In the eternal brood of liar
In the catastrophic fold
Count yourself amongst them
The goal is your soul
On the other side of sanity
Where the goodness dare not go
Count yourself amongst them
The goal is your soul

A lifelong list of blessings, didn't go too far
And all the instinct you were given, wishing on that star
The fallen have your hope and love, the viper never trust
Know they are exchangeable, as you clean away the dust
He's down, in hot damnation,
So down you'll never know
Going down to sweet temptation
Let his people go

All forgiveness flying, screams to fill the air
A lifelong full of blessings rendered, didn't work out fair
All forgiveness lying, screams to fill the hole
A lifelong full----of blessings given
And the goal is still your soul
5. Give A Little (4:44)
Standing on your own two feet
Inches away from infernal heat
Sweating like a piece of meat
The story your's, the plan complete
Calling out to no one there
The semblance of a holy prayer
That turns about to curse and swear
As you find that no one cares
I got the ultra thrill
You got the weaker will
You say that no one's there
I say, I've always cared
I'm singing, your plight
Grace dancing, all night

Give a little dominance/Take a little soul
Try a new experience/Doing what you're told
Go get everything you need until you're dead & cold
Give a little dominance/Take a little soul

Wishing never gets it done
Give two minus one
Take away, no there's none
All this bullshit weighs a ton
Field the question never why
Because is why we live and die
So while I'm here, going high
Fuck the limit, fuck the sky
I got the ultra thrill
You got the weaker will
You say that no one's there
I say, I've always cared
I'm singing, your plight
Grave robbing, all night
6. Endless War (5:43)
Come faster than the speed of light
Slow going the forgiving night
I'm a soldier in an endless war
Chained down to the money whore

I'm counting my days
Yea jaded - oh, I'm getting sicker
I'm going astray
Yea faded - oh I'm feeling sicker

First - last and all in between
Lets give them more hell then they've ever seen
Give them something to remember
Give them how and why and what your living for
First - last and all in between
The endless war

Eyes dancing to a krankin' fit
Blood spillin' in the heart I'm hit
Lord knows I can't remember when
I'll be up before you count to ten
Uncounting my days
Yea jaded - oh, I'm getting sicker
I'm going astray
Yea faded - oh I'm feeling sicker

Oh yeah, give me the dream, give me the all right
Make it a laser beam, spectacular spotlight
Brighter than the sun on a summer day
A wind to chase my clouds away
Oh yeah give me the dream
Make it be all right
Oh yeah give me a shot, set me a fire
Burning like the sun on a metal cage
A wind that fans the flames of rage
Oh yeah give me a shot, set me a fire
Oh yeah give me the dream

Come faster than the speed of dead
Slow going unforgiving red
I'm a soldier in the endless war
Unchained from the endless gore
I'm counting my days
Yea jaded - oh, I'm getting sicker
I'm going astray
Yea faded - oh I'm feeling sicker
7. The Head And Heart (5:13)
I am the head, you are the heart
I am the dead, you are the start
I am the wind, you are the rain

Will you beg for mercy, will you kneel and pray
What will make the nightmares go away (judgement day)
Will you stop pretending, everything's ok
As you drag your bones, another perfect day

Go
I am the dead, you are the heart
I am the dead, you are the start
I am the wind, you are the rain
I've always sinned, you feel the pain

Will you take my sorrow
Will you call my name
Will you be tomorrow
Know the pain

I'm your shadow, curtain call, I keep the hounds at bay
The air you breath is what I choose today
Right behind you, catch your fall, stumble left of light
No pax Romana, now, forever night
8. In Vain (5:15)
Step on up to the counter boy
Buy yourself a thrill
Shake it out with the deepest breath
As you kneel over your first kill
God is your protector, he keep you safe and warm
The funeral director got the contract when you were born

Come on, my way, we have the warmest fire
Come on, my way, I'll take your there
Come on, my way we got the flying higher
When on my way, I'll take your prayer

We got our religion, we got both the ball and chain
We got retribution, we got everything to cleanse the shame
No set you free, in vain

Listen close going to say it one
You need to get you right
Use the gifts you were given boy
Keep the end in sight
Walk it narrow, walk it clean
Then to the sky and fly
I'm the breath that will fill your lungs
Until the day you die

START LIVING/START DYING/START PRAYING/START FLYING
Pinning the face to the floor, slamming and locking the door
START LIVING/START DYING/START PRAYING/START FLYING
Holding the face to the ground
Turning the world upside down, start dying
9. Killing For A Living (6:16)
A sense of peace was falling on the universal night
And it gave me a pause to reason why I live
To never cease the calling of the consequential right
And it gave me cause and reason why they give
The first thing I remember was teh shadow 'cross my heart
And they matched the beauty hidden in their soul

The next was 'cross the universe, as it came apart
And the sum of the parts became whole

Stalking & hunting, profession in blood
Working the night to a throne
Chalking an outline, experience must
Invisible, never alone

I can take you anywhere
Take all that you give
I can free you from despair
Killing just to live

Live to kill
Kill to live
Killing for a living, killing just to live

I looked across the answers, though questions didn't exist
And found that I was never alone
We cut away the cancer and continued to resist
But the outcome of the night remained unknown
The next thing I rememer were the years across my face
And they matched only the beauty of scars
The next was 'cross the universe into time and space
And to know together, we'd have to go too far

Bleeding a nation, casualty time
Breaking the back of the core
Promised salvation, a casual crime
Feeding and fucking the whore
Make my living on borrowed time
I make the clock stand still
Keep my hands 'round what is mine
Living just to kill
Llive to kill
Kill to live

C'mon now kill a little kindness, give the worst of your best
C'mon now and shake a little madness, put the dead to rest
I can give you reasons, 2-5 to the bone
They can give you all you ever wanted
When you're far away from home
C'mon now kill a little kindness, give the worst of your best
C'mon now and shake a little madness, put the dead to rest

So as the plot will thicken and time is not a friend
The blessing comes but one in a life
Across the crowded universe that hastens to an end
Through memories of one time in a night
And what will I remember through the by & by
To have and hold and turn about the chill
That this was not the pause to die
But to live to kill
10. The SRC (5:03)
Come and get it, hit it like a lightning strike
Come and get it, wear it like an iron spike
They ain't got your number and no, nobody's right
Come and get it like you mean it, it'll be alright

No more talking, no end result
Subterranean Resistance Cult

Now you got it, hold it, like it means your life
Never going to let it go, grip it to the oh so tight
And no one gives forgivness, when nothing's going right
Now you got it, shine it up yeah and take a bite

No more talking 'bout where you've been
Welcome home with a cup of sin
No more talking to end result
Subterranean Resistance Cult

C'mon give me lower c'mon give me deep
C'mon take me underground up here the talk is cheap
Gone underground, sink it deep
Sink it deep
Gone underground, sink it deep
Sink it deep
C'mon give me lower, c'mon give me deep
C'mon take me underground up here the talk is cheap
