Life's a Bitch Lyrics

(12)
Submitted by level
1. The Savage and the Hungry (3:47)
Hiding in the shadows
Crawling underground
Weighing up their chances
Making not a sound
No one would go down there
No one but a fool
Would disregard the warnings
And disregard the rules

No one can control
They don't understand
This violence lives inside
The heart of every

Hunter - Right behind you
Seeker - No escape
Killer - Savage and the hungry
Hunter - No Survivors
Seeker - No escape
Killer - Savage and the hungry

Like a human wolfpack
They hunt untill they drop
You won't last the distance
They will never stop

No one can control
They don't understand
This violence lives inside
The heart of every

Hunter - Right behind you
Seeker - No escape
Killer - Savage and the hungry
Hunter - No Survivors
Seeker - No escape
Killer - Savage and the hungry

Scratching at my flesh
I feel my muscles start to mesh
Got to get away
And make it to the light of day

Hunter - Right behind you
Seeker - No escape
Killer - Savage and the hungry
Hunter - No Survivors
Seeker - No escape
Killer - Savage and the hungry
[Some mental ad-liberties and
that's ya whack, kidda!]
2. Pick Your Window (3:29)
In my manor start no fight
Take no chance with me
Watch your mouth heading south
A flying lesson for free

You sold me out
And they put me away
But now I'm back
I promise, you're gonna pay

Pick your window, you're leaving
Pick your window, you're leaving
You're leaving right now

Jelly Knight and Eddie Huggins see
They all say you put the finger on me
Bring out your bottles, your knives and your chains
I've got a .22, I'm gonna blow out your brains

You sold me out
And they put me away
But now I'm back
I promise, you're gonna pay

Pick your window, you're leaving
Pick your window, you're leaving
You're leaving right now

Pick your window, you're leaving
Pick your window, you're leaving
You're leaving right now

solo

Pick your window, you're leaving
Pick your window, you're leaving
You're leaving right now

For you I got some concrete shoes
I got them made to measure
To make you walk the plank tonight
Well, that would be my pleasure

You sold me out
And they put me away
But now I'm back
I promise, you're gonna pay

Pick your window, you're leaving
Pick your window, you're leaving
You're leaving right now

Pick your window, you're leaving
Pick your window, you're leaving
You're leaving right now
3. Life's A Bitch (3:47)
Woke up this morning more dead then alive
Sentenced to madness from nine until five
The weather is lousy, think I'm gonna be late
My breakfast is freezing, the milk has gone off
I feel like telling the world to fuck off
I ain't got no money, I'm late for the train
If I don't get out of here, it's gonna drive me insane

Why does nothing ever turn out right

Life's a bitch
When it's got you by the balls
Life's a bitch
When you feel the squeeze

My brand new motor's almost made out of rust
And my bank account has almost bit the dust
My baby's screaming that she needs new clothes
She had a hundred dollars but she stuck it up her nose

Hey, why don't you shut your mouth

Life's a bitch
When it's got you by the balls
Life's a bitch
When you feel the squeeze

Life's a bitch
When it's got you by the balls
Life's a bitch
When you feel the squeeze

The rent collector's knocking hell out the door
The Sunday dinner plastered over the floor
I can't understand the hell I've done
I just got to try and get my hands on a gun

Why does nothing ever turn out
Just the way it oughta turn out
Anyway you look, there ain't no doubt

Life's a bitch
When it's got you by the balls
Life's a bitch
When you feel the squeeze

Life's a bitch
When it's got you by the balls
Life's a bitch
When you feel the squeeze
4. Never Forgive (4:38)
Trouble all around us every day
People gunning for us say we're in their way
They wanna try and stop us, bring us down
We got to pull together, each and every town
Listen, what I'm saying - you can take a hike
If you want to welcome in a new Third Reich

All those years
Don't the memories send a chill down your spine
Arguments, battle plans
You got yours - here's mine

Raise your hands - into battle
Raise your hands - into war
Raise your hands - the scene
Never forgive, never forget

Preachers, congress - censoring
Sell our freedom, it's a living sin

All those years
Don't the memories send a chill down your spine
Arguments, battle plans
You got yours - here's mine

Raise your hands - into battle
Raise your hands - into war
Raise your hands - the scene
Never forgive, never forget

All those years
Don't the memories send a chill down your spine
Arguments, battle plans
You got yours - here's mine

Raise your hands - into battle
Raise your hands - into war
Raise your hands - the scene
Never forgive, never forget
Raise your hands - into battle
Raise your hands - into war
Raise your hands - the scene
Never forgive, never forget
5. Iron League (3:21)
It makes no difference who you are
You're gonna feel the same
When the power's at its height
Feel the energy - inside of your veins

You gotta have the will to win
There ain't no way we're giving in
You got to take it up to the extreme

Welcome to the iron league
We will never rest
The iron league, the iron league
Take the muscle, put it to the test

We got the electricity
Right before your eyes
This ain't no game we're playing
Take the challenge - cut it down to size

We're in our element at last
Our colors nailed upon the mast
We're gonna take it up to the extreme

Welcome to the iron league
We will never rest
The iron league, the iron league
Take the muscle, put it to the test

There's no rules, no limit
A battle zone and we're in it
Got the urge to go over the top

Welcome to the iron league
We will never rest
The iron league, the iron league
Take the muscle, put it to the ...

Welcome to the iron league
We will never rest
The iron league, the iron league
Take the muscle, put it to the test
6. On the Wings of an Eagle (6:35)
Bandits sighted, fear ignited
Searchlights are cutting the night
Fighters rising to the challenge
Enemy to the left and the right

Never have so many owed
So much to so few
Reach for the sky, it's do or die
Our future's depending on you

On the wings of an eagle
Heading straight for my goal
Gonna fight till the finish
With my heart and my soul

12 O'clock high, burning the sky
Danger comes out of the sun
Guns are screaming, hit full throttle
Eye for an eye, the damage is done

Never have so many owed
So much to so few
Reach for the sky, it's do or die
Our future's depending on you

On the wings of an eagle
Heading straight for my goal
Gonna fight till the finish
With my heart and my soul

City burning, table turning
Attacking source of the hate
Firepower, overlord
Gold, juno and sword

Never have so many owed
So much to so few
Reach for the sky, it's do or die
Our future's depending on you

On the wings of an eagle
Heading straight for my goal
Gonna fight till the finish
With my heart and my soul

On the wings of an eagle
Heading straight for my goal
Gonna fight till the finish
With my heart and my soul
7. Overload (4:18)
Think we reached the limit
Turned and locked the door
You don't really know the score
Listen to the thunder
The electric Roar
Look what we have got in store

One way ticket
Going off the edge
Under pressure, Under fire
It will never end
There's only one why to satisfy yourself
Make everything louder then everything else

We´re heading for the overload
We´re heading for the overload
Maximum intensity is what it really means to me
Heading for the overload

In the line of fire
Decibel attack
THere can be no turning back
Mission of destruction
Shockwave in the air
Dealing out the airwair stare

One way ticket
Going off the edge
Under pressure, Under fire
It will never end
There's only one why to satisfy yourself
Make everything louder then everything else

We´re heading for the overload
We´re heading for the overload
Maximum intensity is what it really means to me
Heading for the overload

You know that it´s essential
To make the strike
The ultimate potential
Will be unleashed - look into the light

One way ticket
Going off the edge
Under pressure, Under fire
It will never end
There's only one why to satisfy yourself
Make everything louder then everything else

We´re heading for the overload
We´re heading for the overload
Maximum intensity is what it really means to me
Heading for the overload
8. You're A Liar (2:39)
You said it's time to get together
Stop the fight
You're always saying that two wrongs
Don't make a right

But as you're throwing down the sword
You pick the knife up
And you stab me in the back

You're a liar
You're a liar
You're a liar
You're a liar

I never did believe
A single word you say
Your kind of promises
Won't see the light of day

But as you're promising the earth
You turn around and then
You take it all away

You're a liar
You're a liar
You're a liar
You're a liar
You made the summit
But you'll never reach the top

You'll never fool us
With your crazy power play
You think you're making progress
Who cares what you say
If I don't stop, I know
You'll blow us all away

You're a liar
You're a liar
You're a liar
You're a liar
You're a liar
You're a liar
You're a liar
You're a liar
9. Fuel to the Fire (3:43)
Running and running around
Seems like my feet never touch the ground
Over and over and trhen
We got our backs to the wall again
What you see is what you get
Maybe you can survive
But the long and the tall and the short of it
Is keeping the drive alive

Come on - It's all or nothing
Come on - You know what to do
Fuel to the fire
And the fire's burning you

Come on and turn up the noise
I like the speed and I like the toys
Reaching for more and more
Breaking your face, break down the door
You can bitch and you can scream
Working the nine-to-five
The only way that I can change my life
Is keeping the drive alive

Come on - It's all or nothing
Come on - You know what to do
Fuel to the fire
And the fire's burning you

Running to the future
Got to keep a-moving, blaze the trail
Find that holy grail
You can bitch and you can scream
Working the nine-to-five
The only way that I can change my life
Is keeping the drive alive

Come on - It's all or nothing
Come on - You know what to do
Fuel to the fire
And the fire's burning you
Come on - It's all or nothing
Come on - You know what to do
Fuel to the fire
And the fire's burning you
10. Only the Strong Survive (3:45)
You burned me
You turned me
Led me astray and you tortured my soul
Now there's no way
'Cause you had your say
I'm taking control, you can all go to hell

I'm gonna tell you how I feel
I'm gonna make it real

Only the strong survive
You got to be tough
Got to stand tall
Only the strong survive
And I'll challenge you one and all

You used me
Confused me
Blinded my eyes with a glittering prize
No blindfold
'Cause the lies are old
We're back in the real world and you're gonna learn

You gotta fight until you drop
I'll never stop

Only the strong survive
You got to be tough
Got to stand tall
Only the strong survive
And I'll challenge you one and all

I'm bleeding
I'm needing
Total insanity straight to the top
I'm not dreaming
My mind is reeling
You know that I'm gonna fight 'til I drop

Only the strong survive
You got to be tough
Got to stand tall
Only the strong survive
And I'll challenge you one and all

Only the strong survive
You got to be tough
Got to stand tall
Only the strong survive
And I'll challenge you one and all
11. Juggernaut (5:08)
Sixty years of hate
Breaking down the gate
The object is to dominate
With subterfuge and lies
And absolute disguise
Will no one wake
Can no one see the writing on the wall

Relentless
In excess
Nothing lives and none can stand in its way
Crash course
Full force
Crushed before the might juggernaut

We got to stand and fight
This creature forged in fear
We got to make the message clear
With omnipresent eyes
The beast prepares to rise
Biding its time
Waitying until the moment comes to kill

Relentless
In excess
Nothing lives and none can stand in it's way
Crash course
Full force
Crushed before the might juggernaut

Stand and fight
This creature forged in fear
We got to make the message clear

Relentless
In excess
Nothing lives and none can stand in it's way
Crash course
Full force
Crushed before the might juggernaut

Relentless
In excess
Nothing lives and none can stand in it's way
Crash course
Full force
Crushed before the might juggernaut
12. Playing With the Razor (3:21)
Pressure building up inside my head
Get the strangest looks, what have I said
Got to snap out but I just can't start
Feel as if I'm gonna fall apart

Get a grip on the line
Keep your balance, see the danger sign
Gonna run out of time

Playing with the razor
Running for your life

Every step is leading me astray
Wish that I could see the light of day
Fact or fiction, I just cannot tell
This twisted tightrope taking me to hell

Get a grip on the line
Keep your balance, see the danger sign
Gonna run out of time

Playing with the razor
Running for your life
Burning with the fever
That cuts me like a knife

Get a grip on the line
Keep your balance, see the danger sign
Gonna run out of time

Playing with the razor
Running for your life
Burning with the fever
That cuts me like a knife
