Anything Worth Doing, Is Worth Overdoing Lyrics

Submitted by level
1. Snakes In Eden (5:16)
Lyrics & music by: Atkins/Hammer

You are the lust behind the lie
You are the hate that never die
You are suffering and mistery

You are the cycle of my pain
The never ending strain
And bring out the worst in me

And black is your religion
As the darkest night
A cat among the pigeones
Waiting for the strike

You are the poison in the bite
The ragin' jealousy inside
My wraith and my hostility

You are the virus in my veins
The growing cancer in my brain
You are infidelity

I have watched the cities rot
I have seen the nations fall
And I have denied my God
While you misled us all

Search in myself
Got to face my demons
Rising from hell
There are snakes in Eden

You are blasphemy and decadence
The stealer of my innocense
The worm that wrigles around my soul

You have haunted me right since my birth
Created all scum of the earth
And caused this world eternal cold

You are infernal
You are the mentor of my sins
You are the incubus
The evil from within

2. Destination Paradise (3:31)
Lyrics & music by: Atkins/Hammer

Take a little trip with me
Let your spirit wander free
I'll free you from reality
I can take you there

Let me be your Peter Pan
Take you off to neverland
Make you feel like Superman
Make you feel aware

Ignite you exite you
The sails are set for

Destination Paradise kiss the sky
Flying high tonight
On the wings of a dream
Sail away leave today
In a sea of light
And flow with the stream
Once we've made friends
Don't pretend that we won't meet again
I will be tied to your tracks

I can change your attitude
Sweeten up the bitter fruit
Let me put a spell on you
For a little while

You'll be safe in my control
I got you in a stranglehold
I'll free your mind and steal your soul
I can make you smile

Release me and feel me - Let me seduce you

Destination Paradise kiss the sky
Flying high tonight
On the wings of a dream
Sail away leave today
In a sea of light
And flow with the stream
If you want more
I'll be there at the end of the straw
I'm your drug I'm a rock
Cut me up make me in - Take me

Now they say you're sugar free
Won't you drop a line for me
And how is your morality
Now that you've come clean
Do you still have confidence
Can you face the consequence
Don't you see it never ends
It's still the same old scene

I beg you won't let you go

3. Hell On High Heels (4:06)
Lyrics & music by: Atkins/Hammer

I met this girl
she stole my heart
she rocked my world
right from the start
one single look
an instant attraction
and I was hooked for more

But I know
you're foolin around girl
and I know she's pulling tricks on me
but she glows there's something about her
and I am lost in her mystery

But she's hell on high heels
once you're stuck inside her web
she leaves you in a trail of passion
she's drug you just can't quit
and your mind is in a haze

One little touch
one single kiss
a little lust
I can't resist
you know I'm trapped
and once I'm invited
no turning back oh no

Maybe she in just a one night sensation
maybe I'm just a toy for amusement
but it seems like an infatuation
she's a match to my fuse


She'll eat my heart out
my mean teen queen
heartbreaking soulshakin girl

Uh ske plays a dirty game
I might be lucky and roll a six an the dice
I need her love tonight
need her love

4. When Yhe Angels Cry (5:55)
Lyrics & music by: Atkins/Hammer

I pray the Lord my soul for him to keep
for all the world to see
to save me from the devil and his creep
to lay his hands on me

I feel the ground beneath me shake
I can't rewind
I'm gonna fall

Father forgive me
for we don't know what we do
love ressurect me
to the world that I once know

Depraved deseased
a far out scenery
we know it all too well
the path we choose
to find the gates of heaven
is just the road to hell

Rapin the land
and apocalytic plans
it's the nature of man

See what we created
stare into the face of time
living in a world devastated
when the angels cry

Cry for salvation
when the final day has come
we're the last generation
in the shades of Babylon

Denial betrayel
no meaning to our failure
no answer to our pleas
a burnt out culture
chaos and revolt
it's mankind on its knees

Our future is vanishing
like blood in the rain
like a paper in flames

See what created
stare into the face of time
living in a world devastated
when the angels cry
think of all the beauty we've vasted
is this the end of it all

And I saw another sign in heaven
great and marvelos
seven angels having seven plagues
which are the last
for in them is finished the wraith of god

5. Back Off (3:50)
Lyrics & music by: Atkins/Hammer

Wear me out
Stone me in the street
You can tear me down
But you cannot erase my memory

Preach to me
I don't take advice
I don't compromise
I gotta look the devil in the eyes

I know that you'll never see things the way I do
But only fools follow rules

Back off
Do you hear what I say
Back off
Get out of my way

Hang me up
Say I don't belong
Pull the plug
Spit on me but I'll still come on strong

Stab my back
But don't step on my pride
Hit me from behind
In the end the vengeance is mine

And no one really wants you when you don't fit in
For some the streets will never bend


And if you cross my path
I'll take you off the map and
Terrorize you
Neutralize you
Pulverize you
Hurt you bad

I'll fight with all I got though
Iøm right against the odds so
Here am I
All defiant
Out of time
Kicked out of the world

You can't systematize me
I ride against the flow
Your norms don't satisfy me
I want you to know

6. Only In America (4:01)
Lyrics & music by: Atkins/Hammer

In the land of make believe
In America
Go chase you fortune
Suicide on prime tv
Mass hysteria
The U.S. wants you

Malcome X politics
Tricky Dick and dirty trick
Sugar Ray C.I.A. lost in Hollywood
Letterman Disneyland Luther King
And Ku klux clan
Watergate out in space
Armstrong on the moon

Ride on to life
It's what you make it
In Gods country
Eye for an eye
This is only in America

From the pils of dollar bills
To the poor ones in the ghetto nation
And the riches on the hill
Take advantage of illegal aliens

Iron Mike take a bite
Stern is on the air tonight
Al Capone rock'n'roll Elvis is alive
Kennedy for president
Shot in Dallas 1 PM
Liberty LSD
Lucy in the skies


Sue you out for every course
Hypocrets and foreign wars
Brave new world
Brave new world

7. With These Eyes (5:15)
Lyrics & music by: Atkins/Hammer

Life is running slowly through our hands
Fade away like footsteps in the sand
Passing by us
And all our visions want astray
We're living with the scars of yesterday
To remind us

We look the other way
We're blind to what surrounds us
And no one seems to care
We dream of better days
Cause everyone's got their own cross to bear
Ain't it so

With theese eyes I have seen
Vasted laves and broken dreams
with this heart I have felt
How we seem to please ourselves
We need new dreams tonight
Like the stars nedd the sky
We need love and sympathy
I need you and you need me

Look upon the homeless in the street
See the pain to those in need
All those empty faces
Think about the selfish way we live
How we take and never give
Somehow some things never change

The man behind the fence
He's got nothing left to live for
The wheels are standing still
And the beggar on the bench
Is lost for hope and he knows
It's the loneliness that kills


Somebody take me and show me the way
To the end of the world where paradise begins

With theese eyes
With this heart
I have seen many lives torn apart

8. Anything Worth Doing Is Worth Overdoing (4:11)
Lyrics & music by: Atkins/Hammer

Life in the fast lane
Living against the law
Riding the Speedtrain
Life is worth dying for

When I take off from here
The only way is up
My principals are clear
Too much is not enough

'cause anything worth doing
And all that is worthwhile
Is worth overdoing
And this is my style
Dancing on the edge
I feel alive

Chasin' the red light
Drawn by the dangersigns
Spaced out on the wildside
Crossing the dividing line

And when the night rolls on
I need some fuel to run
I'll be the last man standing
When all the rest has gone


Life in extreeme
It's my playground my scene
I'll enjoy every moment in time
Taking the scars
As I burn out my star
'cause I wont live by others designs


I am a firecracker
Ready to explode
And I am blazing
Right till the end of the road

9. Scent Of My Prey (4:11)
Lyrics & music by: Atkins/Hammer

Walking in a trance tonight
Round the city streets
Looking for some pure delight
To fullfit my needs

My sanity is spilt in two
I'm burning with desire
Girl I got my eyes on you
You're fuel to my fire

Creepin' in on you
You'll never see me coming
Nothing you can do oh no
No one's got a clue
There ain't no point in running
Now can you feel me honey
I can smell you

The scent of my prey

Raised to be a monster
A pervert lunatic
In a psychotic hunger
I twist my strangle grip

Look into my eyes
And tell my what you see
Are you terrified baby
I'll be satisfied
Now you're in my posession
I'll realized my mission
I can smell you

The scent of my prey

Now my head is filled with emptyness
And I don't really recognize myself
Is it true what the paper says
Could it have been me
Little girl don't you sense the danger
Little girl never trust a stranger
Don't take the candy from his hand
And don't you play his game
He'll steal your life away

Baby step inside
I'll take you for a ride
No one hears you cry
No mercy
My kind of pleasure is the key to your pain

10. Face Me (4:26)
Lyrics & music by: Atkins/Hammer

You slag my name
Insult my crowd
You ruin my day
You count me out
You critisize
Antagonize me
You question me
And my integrety

Now tell me who are you tojuge
If I am out of time and out of touch
Now anytime you pick the place
And I'll be there

Come out and face me
You piece of trash
You son of a bitch
Let's take a bout
Come out and face me
I'll kick your ass
And split your lips
I'll punch you out I'll knock you down

You doubt my skills
Well let me tell you
I despice you stilted
Intelect oh yeah
And then again
I'd rather go to hell
Than ride the trend
And prostitute myself

I know the nature of your kind
Is it the envy deep inside
Or just the fact that I've survived
If it's so


Trendrider can you show the way
I'd try to be hip for one day
And gone tomorrow
You build me up and tear me down
You change the things I say around
You're telling lies you scumbag

Now tell me what
Give you the right
I hate you guts
You God damned parasite
And no one gives a fuck
Of what you think about who you are
Your opinion sucks tabloid superstar
Every word that you wrote just to hurt me
I'll shove 'em down your throat you little piece of shit

11. Loveshine (4:46)
Lyrics & music by: Atkins/Hammer

My baby she's a sexual intellectual
Something special and she's mine
Invaluable unusual amusing
and she's cruzial to my life

She picked me up
Just like an angel out of nowhere
One little miracle
An answer to my prayers

Love shine on me
Lift me up take my heart in your hands
Love shine on me
Never stop cause you're the only one
My rising sun of love
Shine on me

I find her irresistable so magical
So mystical but she's physical
She is
She leaves me in a state of grace
The sparkle on my rainy days
She's my bliss

She takes me unerneath her wings
when I feel blue
My sweet soulsister
Now my heart belongs to you


When I feel lonely like a sailor lost at sea
She makes me realize what love can be
She's so good to me
