Insult to Injury Lyrics

Submitted by level Sathanas
1. Voice of Sanity (3:37)
There's a scream at midnight
Or a child who's time has come
With a beauty so fresh and new
Just twenty years she'd just begun
Now the hour is coming strong
Only to crush the innocent ones
Crimes of passion and pleasure
The reasons for what is done

Hear it echo through the stages
Voice of Sanity

As its flowing through your mind
Let it bring you pain
Rivers turning blood red
Let it drain your brain

Looking from the hindsight
Of a world no longer strong
Thinking you are protected
You don't realize your sadly wrong
You can walk the straight line
But that straight line will be gone
The voice is always watching
and soon you will sing its sweet song


As you see the new dawn
And praise the safety of lighted day
Just like the young child
We must all have a price to pay
And if we're all mad
Sanity is for who to say
When the voice calls us
We must all heed and come out to play

2. Hiroshima (3:14)
Flashback... Pearl Harbor attack
Incoming bombers, no way to fight back
Chaos... blood in the sand
The enemy is coming, the threat is Japan

It must fall to flame...Hiroshima
fall to flame...Hiroshima

Fighters strike from the air
Machine gun fire, no time to prepare
Wounded ships have been sunk
People will say kamikaze's the one


One plane carries the bomb
Orders are given, the city is gone
Spreading flesh, it will burn
Revenge has been taken and
now the have learned

3. Insult to Injury (2:42)
A fallen soldier takes a hit
And is left behind
Comrades boots across his back
Who masterminds the sneak attack

And of course the innocent
Is the One who pays the price

Insult to Injury
Insult to Injury

A knife will twist into the back
the body hits the ground
And the culprits smiling face
is looking upon the waste

[Pre Chorus]


The missing lone ingredient
Salt into the wound
Is an insult to the pride
You better put yourself respect aside


4. Dementia Thirteen (3:02)
Take it, it's for free
Soon it starts to please
Take as much as you want
Take as much as you need
It kills all pain
No need to feel ashamed
Now it starts ti hit home
Straight to the bone

Dementia Thirteen
Now you're feeling stoned
Pains are small and few
This feeling's all that you own
Never let them try to take it from you

Ahh, it's fucking me up
I think Ive had a little too much speed
And I can hardly see
What the chords I'm hitting
What the otes to play
Yo, are we all in tune
What did that dude just say

5. Essence of Evil (5:59)
The last brick has been placed
Trapped in a wall of stone
Buried without a trace
Left to rot to the bone
Two men had been close friends
Fought a war side by side
Greed and lust lead to the end
One man buried alive

The undead has life
Essence of Evil
Crawling and crawling
Stair after stair
It cries in the night
Essence of Evil
Revenge on the one
That has put it there

So one talks of a truce
He lures the other to his home
Let us drink and forget
The reason we walk alone
A smile on his face
But murder is on his mind
A taste of poison too late
How could he have been so blind


Upstairs the killer sleeps
As its clawing tooth and nail
Raw flesh finds loose stone
It escapes from its jail
And now the killer wakes
As the door swings open wide
The essence has sealed his fate
There is nowhere to hide

6. Witness to the Terror (3:58)
Smoke so thick you start to choke
Among the ruin the dogs of war
You feel the end drawing near
Air raid sirens wailing in your ears

But you hear them
When it strikes, it's too late
Now you see them
Burning bodies squirming, screaming
Staring in your face

Witness to the terror
Life appearing from the shelter
The lone vulture last survivor
Life is tasting bitter

Search the earth
Look around
Hopeless case
There is none to be found
Save your breathe
Final plight
You never get it off your mind


Kneeling down
Final sight
Twitching hand
It cuts the ego like a knife
Pray for death
Pray for light
Live in hell
Pray to the one that's
wrong or right

7. Battle Scars (4:27)
Stitch in time
For a dime
Passion crime
A penny saved is a penny earned
Get rich quick
Turn your trick
Make it quick
Another bailbonds court adjourned
The rat race
Sets the pace
Leaves a trace
To teach you what you've never learned

The wear and tear
Has taken its toll
Twelve hundred scars
Another years old
The wear and tear
Has taken its toll
Each battlescar
The blood runs cold

White or black
The meat rack
On your back
But not until the price is paid
Mind at ease
Aim to please
On your knees
Cause that's the way the money's made
Time slips by
To tough to cry
You wonder why
Your morals have now decayed
Pay the dues
Black and blues
It's what you choose
To live life the way you want
Familiar face
That's the case
But no disgrace
Your memory they will always haunt
Time will tell
End this hell
What you sell
You will someday no longer flaunt

8. Rape of the Mind (2:29)
With the sun sinking slowly
And the vultures flying low
Out on the streets again
With nowhere to go
You've taken you last chance
And there's nothing left to lose
Pull the gun your on the run
And caught by the man in blue

Does the punishment fit the crime
It's a rape of the mind

Take a look at the rich man
At the people that he owns
Watch the smile on his face
Eviction from their homes
Caught for tax evasion
On the new he's taken away
Out a day later
ain't got nothing he wants to say

His money pays for his time
It's a rape of the mind

Now the padded cell is waiting
And the doctors come to call
Shock treatments aren't helping
Still your shocked some more
Take your mind from you
And your freedom in return
With the hopes one day
A lesson has been learned

Does the punishment fit the crime
It's a rape of the mind
Rape of the Mind
9. Ticket to Mayhem/4 E.S. (4:07)
10. Pistolwhipped (3:17)

Four cold dark walls closing
Gasp for air
Prison cell bars
Laughing as they stare
Scream in vain
What a desperate cry
Silent echoes
The room comes to life

Contemplate plan to escape
Vision of breaking out
Chance to flee
Free from the arms of the law


Footsteps keys ring
Music to the ear
No more waiting
Chance in hell is here
Beams of light shine
Knock'em on the floor
Must break free now
Open cell block door


Fence is near
Scream as the sirens sound
Chase begins, blood pumping
The heart pounds
Cross a field
Taste freedom
Legs in pain
Crushing blow
Butt of a gun meets your brain
