Slaughter House Lyrics

(10)
Submitted by level LightListener
1. F.T.W. (5:12)
In a burnt out nation, many years ago
There used to be a president but he was growing old
In 1997, with problems by the score
Dealing with the communists, dealing with the poor
Taxes always going up, there's no end in sight
Tunnel termination, but no one sees the light

Lost was any hope the world just couldn't cope
Life was nearing end what savoir could god send
Could this world be saved or would it be enslaved
Missiles all around like cuffs our hands are bound

Trouble in the Middle East, terrorists at hand
Panic, death and terror, they spread throughout the land
Feeling all so hopeless, there's nothing we can do
They kill your next door neighboor, and then they come for you
Crime's running rampant, getting worse by the day
Authority means nothing, to criminals today

And as so the president opens up his door
He looks out at this barren world and says he wants no more
He has seen the murder, he has seen the sin
If decent people have to lose then no one's gonna win
So with one final laugh he knows what he must do
He launches all our missiles and tells the world fuck you!

Fuck the world!
2. Let The Neighbors Hear (3:12)
I'm getting ready, got myself a drink
Bringing my high up the more and more I think
Down in the cellar, the band is tuning up
Yell for the start and I drink another cup

The music is blaring, the band is getting not
Go back to my bottle I need another shot
Shakin' them windows they're ready to break
The band turns it up and the walls start to shake

Don't matter if it's good
No it don't matter if it's clear
Just open up the windows
And let the neighbors hear
They don't like it
They think that it's noise
But nobody steps on the Slaughter House boys

Momma's complaining the music's too loud
We don't want to stop cause we must please the crowd
The phone started ringing, the neighbors complain
We turn it up louder, and drive them insane

Don't matter if it's good
No it don't matter if it's clear
Just open up the windows
And let the neighbors hear
They don't like it
They think that it's noise
But nobody puts down the Slaughter House boys

Finally the cops they come knocking at the door
While music is rocking and shaking the floor
We stop all the music and hear what they say
But when they are gone then we start up and play

Don't matter if it's good
No it don't matter if it's clear
Just open up the windows
And let the neighbors hear
They don't like it
They think that it's noise
But nobody fucks with the Slaughter House boys
3. U.S.A. (3:46)
The USA don't take no shit
From communist countries they're the pits
We'll step on them like they're little ants
Cause we're the men who wear the pants
Eat them up, spit'em out
They'll never know, what life's about
When they're down we'll kick'em around
And their brains will not be found

Terrorists threatening the USA
Nuclear war getting closer every day
Missiles, tanks, the M.I.A.'s
Guns, napalm a green beret

After the shock we'll rule the earth
It will be like the world's rebirth
There'll be no communists left around
If they are they'll be sought and found
Hung, drung, quartered, gagged and bound
Shot, burned and buried deep underground
Spit and party on their grave
If they live they'll be our slave

Without the reds be a better place
We won't have to deal with their disgrace
We won't have to deal with no idle threats
I doubt if anyone will have regrets

So the USA in the place to be
It's the only place from sea to sea
No wonder others fight like me
Can't trust a soul from a communist country

USA
4. It Ain't Easy (3:27)
Hey you're at your all time low girl
Your attitude ain't worth a damn
All your life you got it for free, but
The world isn't at your command
Now you've got yourself set up for
That perfect image of a man
You think you've got a live one baby
But you just better think again

Tell your friends you got me easy
You tell'em I eat right from your hand
But when the truth unfolds my baby
Your pride is gonna slip down the drain
Tell'em about our wild weekend
You tell'em I like it dirty and down
You've got it set up for the future
But I don't want you hanging around

It ain't easy
5. Kick 'Em When They're Down (3:55)
Kick 'em...

Kick'em when they're down, spread their blood around
Cause that's the law of the streets
We can't afford to lose, they're battered and abused
There's no way that we can be beat
Systematic win, then we will begin
To enjoy their feeling of defeat
Restless a wild, we're on the run
Killing, maiming and slashing just for fun

Beaten and abused, they're battered
Their necks are in a noose, they're shattered
They cannot get away, to all of their dismay
We gotta kick'em when they're down

Laying in the street, blood is at their feet
Hands are laid across their chests
They have fought before, but now it's nevermore
Cause they have met up with the best
There were lots of fools, who tried to break our rules
But no one yet has passed the test
Killing one by one, until the job is done
Now we're out to smash the rest

Beaten and abused, they're battered
Their necks are in a noose, they're shattered
They cannot get away, to all of their dismay
We gotta kick'em when they're down

Time is drawing near, our enemies, they fear
They're hiding in the dark of night
They try to get away, but it won't be today
Cause soon they'll all be in your sight
We're coming after you, your punishment is due
Now it's time to win this fight
We'll bring the hammer down, upon this crazy town
Cause Slaughter House will win with might

Beaten and abused, they're battered
Their necks are in a noose, they're shattered
They cannot get away, to all of their dismay
We gotta kick'em when they're down

Down!
6. Incomplete Insanity (5:21)
Here I am locked in this room where padded walls must be my cell
Lunatics and lunacy surround me in my private hell
Smile at me I stare at you laugh to myself cause I'm not well
This is where I must stay to protect the outside in my shell

I think I'm falling apart
(And I know) it eats away at my brain
(I don't care) I go from finish to start
(I tell them) I know that I am insane

They won't listen to my pleas of lunacy they want to set me free
There is nothing left for me but incomplete insanity
Now I wait until the day that mindless death sets unto me
I'm insane

Hoped that they would listen to me and I wish that I were dead
Thoughts of murder, rape and stealing always running thru my head
Shaking uncontrollably try to recover in my bed
How I talked and prayer to god that they might have heard what I said

I think I'm falling apart
(And I know) it eats away at my brain
(I don't care) I go from finish to start
(I tell them) I know that I am insane

They won't listen to my pleas of lunacy they want to set me free
There is nothing left for me but incomplete insanity
Now I wait until the day that mindless death sets unto me
I'm insane

It's been 2 long years gone by and now I know I've lost the fight
To the world that fears me I have been thrown out into the night
I'm T-rayed into the street where I must kill cause this is right
Now I'm back into my realm of total darkness I see the light

I think I'm falling apart
(And I know) it eats away at my brain
(I don't care) I go from finish to start
(I tell them) I know that I am insane

Didn't listen to my pleas of lunacy they went and set me free
Now I walk amongst the so-called normal people that's where I must be
And I know the white coats inside are a little crazier than me
I'm insane
7. Demon's Flight (6:38)
Darkness is rising over the valley below
There's a cold wind blowing
You see not even a soul
There's a strange feeling in the air
I've got a feeling that the demons are here

Must be the demon's flight tonight
I feel it in my bones
Demon's flight tonight
Oh god I feel so cold
Black clouds loom about
Demons in the air
Spreading evil thru the town think judgement day is here
There is no way that they can stop it
Only god can save them now

There's a new light coming
From a distant place
Beautiful starlight
From way out in space
Skies are getting darker
Starlight save this place
The time has come
To put an end to the demon's race

The starlight did it's job
The demon have all gone away
I hope the world will live in peace now
Live to see a brighter day
The demons have all gone away
The demons flight has been laid today
Demon's flight
Laid to rest
8. Wasting Away (4:04)
I'm wasting away with my bottle of wine
I'm drinking real fat but I'm taking my time
The spirits with me, to set my mind free
A fine young lady, she is looking at me

I've got no solution cause there ain't no problem
I've got no restrictions cause I'm independent
And I'm wasting away
And I'm wasting away
And I'm wasting away
Now I'm wasting my life away

I'm wasting away with my bottle of Jack
My liver is pounding it's on the attack
Now I'm seeing double there's gonna be trouble
C'mere little virgin let me pop your bubble

I'm wasting away with my bottle of beer
The more that I drink the less that I hear
I'm feeling no pain I've got nothing to gain
One more drink is gonna drive me insane
9. Black Sheep (3:16)
Never did anything right in my life
Never had time for kids or a wife
Every night drinking out with the boys
Getting' pretty rowdy and making lots of noise
Coming home stinking drunk every single night
Lots of times I'm beat up from getting in a fight
In the morning when my father opens up the bedroom door
He sees me lying in my clothes passed out on the floor

I'm a black sheep

Spending all my money on things that I don't need
Like rent and food and clothing, when all I want is weed
My brothers are in college, what a bunch of fools
I'm into wild women, and breaking all the rules
Every night a different cop is knocking on my door
Tonight he says you're going in for mugging Mrs. Moore
Calling up my mother from jail cell #3
I need someone to bail me out or they'll never set me free
10. Electric Rasp (1:22)
Friday night, work let out
Cash my check now I gotta get out
Meet the boys, get the blow
Now we're off to see the show
Hit that pedal to the floor
Hear that massive motor roar
Now I'm here in the parking lot
Everyone partying feeling not
Skin tight pants on the metal queens
Metal junkies lettin' out screams
Got my whiskey down my pants
Security catch me ain't no chance

Light out/rock on
Surging power/I'm gone
Electric rasp/thru my brain
Pouring sweat/pain

Now I'm on top with a bad nosebleed
To the front row now I must proceed
Now I'm down on the bottom floor
Me and that crowd both scream left and right
Partying on the Friday night
Before you know it the encore's dead
Still hear that ringing in my head
Now I'm back in the parking lot
Everyone partying feeling hot
Out to the car, open the trunk
Get out the beers, gotta stay drunk
