Tapping the Vein Lyrics

(11)
Submitted by level
1. Body Parts (3:02)
Business of false doctrine
Nothing is impossible
Wonders of technology
We got plastic surgery

Organ trading is of use
Unavoidable the abuse
Need some lungs and need some hearts
Searching for new body parts

Body parts

Bodies damaged after a crash
Transplanting skin to your flesh
That's no minor injury
This is plastic surgery

Rich and infamous bastard
You got a chance to survive
Replacing your diseased parts
Recover and stay alive

Body parts

Life is what you wanna buy
Unknown victims have to die
New organs is what you need
Nothing justified the deed

Business of false doctrine
Everything is possible
Wonders of technology
Because we got plastic surgery
2. Skinned Alive (2:27)
They curse the day
When I was born
Mentally deranged
Fits of raving madness
Immolate beyond the grave

Celebrate and enjoy
The thrusts with my knife
The way you feel
Is the way you will die
You think you're dead
But you're just skinned alive

I hear you cry
But slow and sure
Your skin will be my toy
Death becomes
Second nature to me
My heart expands with joy

Celebrate and enjoy
The thrusts with my knife
The way you feel
Is the way you will die
You think you're dead
But you're just skinned alive

Liquidation and supreme sacrifice
Deeply afflicted faces
Appetising body odour
Anguish but rest in pieces

Celebrate and enjoy
The thrusts with my knife
The way you feel
Is the way you will die
You think you're dead
But you're just skinned alive
3. One Step Over The Line (5:06)
At the back of beyond
Where time stands still
In a paradise of love and hate
Like pack of hounds
Invading the land
Girls sell their bodies
Like hot cakes

Unscrupulous deals
With human flesh
To live the life of Riley
Behaving like bulls
In a China chop
Pots of money but nothing to pay

One step over the line
Diseased by genital desire
One step over the line
Out of the frying pan
And into the fire

Perverse bents
Clever camouflage
Holidays of infanticide
Mistress of lust
Sold down the river
Exploited and eaten alive

One step over the line
Diseased by genital desire
One step over the line
Out of the frying pan
And into the fire

Once bitten twice shy
She takes you for a ride
The money she needs to survive
Death defying
Sexual act
Welcome to the club where you die
4. Deadline (3:51)
Euthanasia or amnesty
Takes you off the ground
Embrace your hopes
And pray to them
When your smile turns upside down

Silent noise in sleepless nights
Freeze your mind and blood
Think about your morbid life
Is there any god?

No postponement
Death by the law
At zero hour
Stops your beating heart

Your days are numbered
Your fate is sealed
When the bell rings twelve o'clock
Waiting for the message
No governor's reprieve
These guys just doing their job

No postponement
Death by the law
At zero hour
Stops your beating heart

You have to live on charity
Not die a natural death
That brings your life so close
Of your own wrongful act

Come on man
It's time to go
Deliverance not so far
TV covered
Millions wait
Tonight you are the star
5. Bullet In The Head (3:01)
Exploitation of young
Consumer groups
Inspired to say yes
Debasement by
Your mad persuasion
Destroyed while you progress

Bullet in the head
Kick the bucket
Are you prepared?

There is a bullet in your head
To stop the way
You earn your bread

Cold blooded and mendacious
Selling of illusions
Ferocious without remorse
You give them a trip
Like there is no tomorrow
Don't care what H. will cause

Bullet in the head
Kick the bucket
Are you prepared?

There is a bullet in your head
To stop the way
You earn your bread

Suffer the children
Coming to me
Enjoy the habit
The first is free
The best you can get
Between heaven and earth
Nothing ventured
Nothing gained

Bullet in the head
Kick the bucket
Are you prepared?

There is a bullet in your head
To stop the way
You earn your bread
6. The Crippler (4:09)
Don't believe in rights
There is no such thing
Tearing up the garbage
With pain and suffering

Breaking rules is your desire
You got no sympathy
I'll put you in a wheelchair
That's your penalty

Nothing is secure
Nowhere is safe
Once you cross the line
I will break your spine

The crippler
Broadcast violence
The crippler
Prime time gladiator
The crippler
Bloodsport champion
The crippler
He will take you down

Shattering your kneecaps
The crowd begins to roar
They want more violence
This is a bloody war

Nothing is secure
Nowhere is safe
Once you cross the line
I will break your spine

The crippler
Broadcast violence
The crippler
Prime time gladiator
The crippler
Bloodsport champion
The crippler
He will take you down

Mutilated bodies
Crying out in vain
I will get the trophies
They will not regain

Once you cross the line
I will break your spine

The crippler
Broadcast violence
The crippler
Prime time gladiator
The crippler
Bloodsport champion
The crippler
He will take you down

Adrenaline is pumping
Better you than me
I'm gonna make you bleed
I like brutality

The crippler
Broadcast violence
The crippler
Prime time gladiator
The crippler
Bloodsport champion
The crippler
He will take you down
The crippler
Kicks to the genital
The crippler
Bigfoot in your face
The crippler
Pulling off your fingernails
The crippler
There is no better place
7. Wachturm (3:46)
Morgens um acht
Mitten in der Nacht
Es klingelt an der Tür
Noch halb im Koma
Das glaubt mir keiner
Da will jemand was von mir
Ich mach mal offen
Was seh ich denn da
'Ne junge Braut nee sogar zwei
Sie wolln die frohe Botschaft verkünden
Mit einer Mark bin ich dabei

Der Wachturm ist die Offenbarung
Für all die Gotteskinder
Packt ihn weg es hat keinen Zweck
Meine Pornos sind mir lieber

Ich lass sie in die Wohnung
Wollt ihr was trinken
'N Kaffee oder Bier
Nein danke wir wollen dich nu bekehren
Nur deshalb sind wir hier
Wir haben gehört
Du bist ein gottloser Mensch
Jehova wird dir verzeihn
Es ist sein Wille und sein Wille geschehe
Wir waschen deine Seele rein

Was für Quatsch
Leck mich am Arsch

Der Wachturm ist die Offenbarung
Für all die Gotteskinder
Packt ihn weg es hat keinen Zweck
Meine Pornos sind mir lieber

Feuer
Und Schwefel
Armageddon
Ist nah

Sie sagen: "Du bist dem Satan verfallen
Und balt kommt das Ende der Welt
Wir können dir helfen
Komm mit uns und opfere dein Geld"
Hört mal Mädels
Ich schlag euch was for
Denn der Quatsch geht mich auf die Eier
Wir trink'n erstmal einen
Ihr zieht euch aus
Und wir machen 'nen flotten Drei

Komm wir fucken
Komm fir fucken

Der Wachturm
8. Tapping The Vein (5:10)
Armed and ready I sit in a room
Vanishing power
A sting in my arm
Blood pours on the floor
Final hour
The one that got me out of the grave
Always there
Don't know what he's aiming at
Do not dare

Never regain...
Tapping the vein

Darkness all around me
I can't see
A door that's never really open
Not for me
The shock of recognition now
I will die
Mind distortion weird thoughts
Tell me why...

I'm going insane...
Tapping the vein

Still got my gun my only friend
Through it all
Can't pull the trigger no final shot
Can't you hear my call?
Venomous poison lethal liquid
Pumping through my veins
Physical destruction
Psychic interruption
Dying brain

Never regain...
Tapping the vein
9. Back To War (3:13)
The end of armistice
And universal peace
No suspension
Of hostilities
Prophecy of bad news
This is no fun
Come into your own
And take off your gun
The enemy behind
Like an awful drag
You'd better have eyes
In the back of your head
Move into position
Put up a good fight
Don't forget the sleeping pills
A kind of suicide

Forget the rules
Forget the odds
Protect your own
War is guts

Back to war

You will be wrapped up
In your assiduous work
Offer your service
To clean up the world
The hostile scum
If looks could kill
Contact with the enemy
That you will feel
Centered on you
Touch and go
Put up with the pain
Await the blow
Fix them for what
They've done to you
Don't fall into line
Don't care what you do

Forget the rules
Forget the odds
Protect your own
War is guts

Back to war

War of independence
Don't beat a retreat
Combative in
The seasoned league
You are sure
Of your success
Never shut the eyes
To the horrible facts
Revolution and cowardice
To get the might
Never let them
Out of your sight
When you fall on the field
They'll bring you home
To the peaceful place
Where you were born

Forget the rules
Forget the odds
Protect your own
War is guts

Back to war
10. Hunting Season (4:27)
I was granted no quarter
Because you forgot the rules
The words I said are
Sure to come true
Your empty promises
Treacherous and blind
Your deceitful lies call
The war back to my mind

I learnt a way to survive
The enemy to neutralise
They got no reason
Hunting season

I want to set the world on fire
Like a savage beast - A final desire
I burn my boats surrounded by danger
A soldier in hiding kicked out like a stranger

I learnt a way to survive
The enemy to neutralise
They got no reason
Hunting season

I avail every chance
It's a pleasure for me
To slay one by one
To fight for liberty
Once a lieutenant in higher service
Now I'm nothing
A man without mercy

I learnt a way to survive
The enemy to neutralise
They got no reason
Hunting season

I want to set the world on fire
Like a savage beast - A final desire
I burn my boats surrounded by danger
A soldier in hiding kicked out like a stranger

I learnt a way to survive
The enemy to neutralise
They got no reason
Hunting season
11. Reincarnation (7:49)
Life on earth for you to know
In peace you live in peace you will go
Behind the scenes of salvation
Nobody knows lust and temptation

The mass begins the spirit appears
The man in black nothing he fears
A fatal disguise is what you call holy
Where is god? I want you to show me.

In the name of the father the son
The holy spirit the show has begun
Thy kingdom come thy will be done
Hallowed be thy name

Reincarnation
False celebration
Reincarnation
Mental subordination

Go down on your knees
And pray for peace
Join the club of total devotion
Religious faith and social failure
Once you've been trapped
Death is your saviour

In the name of the father the son
The holy spirit the show has begun
Thy kingdom come thy will be done
Hallowed be thy name

Reincarnation
False celebration
Reincarnation
Mental subordination

In the name of the father the son
The holy spirit the show has begun
Thy kingdom come thy will be done
Hallowed be thy name

Reincarnation
False celebration
Reincarnation
Mental subordination
