1. Bloodlust (2:29)
[By Bobby Liebling]

I was the finder and the keeper
I never though I would need to be the creeper
but my keeper
turned out to be the reaper
and now it's bloodlust
tales of woe I was strung out on the line
and I though my life was fine
it wasn't mine
fell a little short and ran out of time
and now it's blood lust
and nowhere to hide
the killing floor may drag me down
but not without a fight
and even though they think I've lost my soul
if they could just keep me confined at night
bloodlust, I can't turn the tide
bloodlust, I'm hungry inside
bloodlust, I'm filled up with hate
bloodlust, the eclipse of my fate
get outta here boy
now why does his happen to me
the flames like a fire burning into the sea
sticking like lightnin' to blurred to free
and now it's bloodlust
the spark's in me
the killing floor may drag me down
but not without a fight
and even though they think I've lost my soul
if they could just keep me confined at
night cause I got bloodlust
I'm filled up with hate
bloodlust, eclipse of my fate
bloodlust, I'm hungry inside
bloodlust, I can't turn the tide
to bloodlust
2. Buzzsaw (2:29)
[By Bobby Liebling]

Ever get the feelin'
Couldn't take no more
All her dirty dealin'
Not my case I'm sure
live wire
electrocute my soul on fire
love me like a buzz saw
she gave it to me like I never saw, yeah
lovely roman candle
supercharge my brain
nothin' she can't handle
plays her own game
she's a fast pace setter
love me like a buzz saw
I got to go get her
she gave it to me like I never saw
there was a time, baby when I was young
I used to see everything, yes I did
oh, yeah alright
let's get on out of here (lead break)
she's a live wire
electrocute my soul on fire
you know she love me like
a buzz saw
give it to me like
I never saw
she's a fast pace setter
you know I got to go get her - yes I do
love me like a buzz saw
she give it to me like
I never saw before - yeah
3. Drive Me to the Grave (4:32)
[By Joe Hasselvander and Bobby Liebling]

In sleepless night I hear the thunder
I fell the dead hands round my neck
no telling what's this spell I'm under
I breath a lifeless icy breath
so when I ask you get the driver
and tell him please be dressed in black
I need him right beside the grave
because you're never coming back
won't you get the driver
drive me to the grave
ah, please, I need him
or there'll be no one left to save
someone help me look for what I'm after
I'm chocking on the bad dream that I made
just try to stop the evil laughter
or there'll be no one left to save
so if I plead get the driver
and tell him please be dressed in black
I need him right beside the grave
baby's never coming back no no alright
they say we all got five bad points
well I got five of my own
I think they're bound to com through
when the meat gets down to the bone
so if I plead get the driver
and tell him please be dressed in black
I need him right beside the grave
because you're never coming back
you send me home to bust my back
slap me to your torture rack
you're out all night you sleep all day
and when we talk I got no say
So when I plead get the driver
and tell him please be dressed in black
I need him right beside the grave
because you're never coming back
won't you get the driver
drive me to the grave
please I need him
or there'll be no one left to save
no one left to save
no no no
4. Sub-Intro (3:59)
5. Sub-Basement (6:03)
[by Joe Hasselvander and Bobby Liebling]

Ever since I started out I keep on sinkin' in the pit
times change called my name told me that
I'd grow out of it
out of step and time
ain't worth a dime
or they told me so
I'll stay a wrong sided hit
I don't like what's on the radio
torn down and been condemned
like a tenement now
but in the trap door cellar
there's a special lamp glow
and still down deeper
where you cannot see with eyes
is the ramp to the damp
where the sub-basement cries
no escape
through the years and the tears
under black cloud skies
seems the lower that I go
is where my true heart lies
and when I'm stuck in the thick of it
there's no need to roam
some think of me as fried but it's a choice all my own
I've been called a dinosaur relic
stuck in the twilight zone
but stickin' in the sub-basement
keeps me lit to the bone
like the bats hanging dormant
in their nocturnal fleet
I'm still around underground
gettin' my peace without sleep
no escape
there's no way out
no doubt
no way out
so when the strands on the spiders loom
cast a glow in the room
won't be long for the web has caught a new prey for doom
and there ain't no worry
about any fee or rent
as long as cement songs keep climbing
out of the sub-basement
ain't no worry about no fee
and there ain't any rent
as long as cement songs keep climbin' out of the
sub-basement
no escape
ain't no doubt - no way out - no doubt
sssshhhh - aaaahhhh
6. Go in Circles (Reachin' for an End) (5:19)
[By Joe Hasselvander and Bobby Liebling]

Don't press me, don't second guess me
seems like everything's made a mess out of me
maybe that's why I'm still here
must have blessed me and brought out my fear
so don't press me, don't second guess me
I'm going in circles, reachin' for and end, you'll never get there my friend
You've problem that I can't address
get a bucket full of your own mess
use your mind's clean up crew
and you mop up the rest
I'm tired of always being put to the test
You've got a problem, well I sure can't address the mess so
clock keeps runnin' can't waste no more time
all that time runnin' ever gets me is gone
I keep the chill, and I am the pill maybe that's
why people think I'm so ill
if you feel a real comin' on
better keep it to yourself and write down it in a song
am I fadin' in or fadin' out
it all depends on where you stand in the circle no doubt
you can only fly by reachin' sky, so don't so dent fly
and crush your problems out - yeah
cause I've been in this shit for way to long
don't give me any lessons about what's right and what's wrong
you might say I'm at a stone stand still just please don't
forget when you're stuck
I can bet my head strong long will grab the top bill yet
goin' in circles yeah reachin' for an end I said you'll never
get there my friend, yeah
I said you're goin' in circles reachin' for and end
you'll never get there my friend
oh no goin' in circles yeah
7. Mad Dog (2:18)
[By Bobby Liebling]

Help me out I need some re-arranging
you better help me out, there's got to be some changin'
if you wanna keep swingin' on my trapeze
then get on your knees and learn how to please baby
chargin' like a rhino I'll stop you dead in your tracks
sharp as a razor take no skin off my back
you'd better button up honey
I'm a mad dog in heat
and I always leave a mark on the people that I meet
awww turn me loose
cuisin' on a tailwind take me home to you
I'll break a hole in the ocean and ride on through
now don't lose your breath when I
smack you on the back
I'll get the next one out of town on the railroad
track honey you know I will mmm yeah yeah yeah
8. After the Last (3:48)
[by Joe Hasselvander and Bobby Liebling]

I'm gettin' so weary even stayin' in this song
I've fought many battles but this war is just way too long
gave the choices how to reckon was relentless as I warned
but there's something stayin' missin' and the drive is all but gone
with the age comes the rage and the stage brings the pain
like a fight with a hurricane the screams finally came
losin' my stride and tryin' to hide even pride is feeling wrong
though inside I know I tried it seems it's time to move along
like a champion in the twilight when the twelve rings round
can't stop hearin' the bells of thirteen think I'm bound for goin' down
but there's something stayin' missin' and the drive is all but gone
with the age comes the rage and the stage brings the pain
like a fight with a hurricane the screams finally came - yeah
yeah the one after the last I've heard bring the final blow
I pray it's fast and passed I'm huntin' for peace don't you know
I know it might be soon cause lately I'm needin' it so
bring with haste no time to waste I feel it's tome to go no more
it's time to face the fact that it's almost done
this one act play called life has reached it's final run
and though it's high at cost
I'll rest and realize I've lost
9. Tidal Wave (4:40)
[by Joe Hasselvander and Bobby Liebling]

Breakers falling hard with power fit to break your neck
stone cold ice filled waters that night would bring ship wreck
and all the crew on duty were confined to low deck
not much longer for all around would fold and beckon to the hand of
the tidal wave
stuck in the no win cave
it was a breathless grave
to feel the tidal wave with not a soul to save
how many fathoms hosted how much bone
for such a large sized family there'd be no home
were only separate bodies and parts left to float on foam
and soon the blue and green skin tone all left to comb after the
tidal wave
stuck in no win cave
it was a breathless grave
for each gave his soul to serve the tidal wave
was a tidal wave
they heeded underground
to hear the void of sound
and never to be found
none would remain to teach there was a contract breach
and while they prayed for beach the structure had no lease
so as they head for rocks and cliffs steered towards the siren's sound
applaud a blinding light no more would they see the light
they headed further down
to greet the tidal wave
and find the softer ground
now all were to be drowned
they were Atlantis bound
10. Out of Luck (3:54)
[by Bobby Liebling]

Dreary, caped figure roams
through the fields way past twilight hours
used to be a man
long time ago
now he's out of luck
tell me broken soldier
what shattered your dreams
I know it must have been bad
your hands are still tremblin'
there's not enough love to go 'round
I wanna help you get your feet
on the ground
so I'll leave a light in the tower
to light the moors through
your restless hours
before you call it quits
and say you're through
just remember baby, I used to be like you
a battle plunges
to a very lonely end
I saw a man who struggled
but whose life would descend
a thought rang through me
as I rounded home's sweet bend
the last words that he whispered
you're my mirror's lonely friend - yeah - alright
11. Target (5:10)
[by Bobby Liebling]

yeah you've got the guts I've sure got the time
last time you were comin': I left you behind - yeah - alright
we'll play a game that you won't forget
you'll be the target and I'll get you yet mercy, what I said
see how loud baby can moan
you're filthy again like you were back at home
"how much"
never could say I liked you a lot
but you're firin' me up and it's got to come out - yeah
alright yeah let's get it
shootin' a gun between your eyes, one sure method gonna tranquilize
two times mmmmm talk to me baby
yeah come on baby that's what I'm talkin' about
here we go mmmmmm hunh yeah
that's what I'm talkin' about
come on baby
