Ticket to Mayhem Lyrics

Submitted by level Sathanas
1. Perpetual Warfare (Intro) (1:42)
2. Walk the Plank (4:26)
[Lyrics: Tony Portaro/Joe Cangelosi, Music: Tony Portaro]

Ship has set sail, sea will prevail
Swallow the slaughter, drink the salt water
Pawn of the power, sea will devour
Infinite day, awaiting the hour

Walk the plank
Walk the plank

Trid ball and chain, infliction of pain
Vulture's arise, death in their eyes
Under the gun, food supply none
Knife in the back, nowhere to run

[Repeat chorus]

All hope is lost been double crossed
Legion of death steal your last breath

The trechery of muting, lightning and thunder
Make the mind wander
Water's infected, captain's arrested
Sharks in the water, body's injected

[Repeat chorus]
[Repeat post-chorus]
3. Last Nail in the Coffin (4:36)
[Lyrics: Tony Portaro, Music: Tony Portaro/Tony Bono]

Without one breath of life from the coffin'
The body begins to arise
It's rotted skin smelling of death
A hand of bones creeps from inside
Emerging with two glowing eyes

These eyes are forever hypnotizing
Burning your very soul
Passionate, painless, paralyzing
They're gonna turn your blood cold

These eyes will forever hypnotize you
They'll turn around and they'll blind you

Evil inside those eyes
4. Drowning in Torment (3:52)
[Lyrics: Tony Portaro/Joe Cangelosi, Music: Tony Portaro]

What is seen
Through the eyes of the crippled mind
No wasted time
No wasted line
Unforseen death What a seen

When the terror of the mind
Is craving evil lines
Confusion time
One step closer to...
Lust decides your fate

So the seeds will grow
Snow will dominate
Life is left to blow

Living dream, illusion being
Strength evolves from stimulation
The minds railng
Another gram is blown, eyes gleam
Numbness felt through the veins
The nose burning
Never learning
One step closer to...
Hell inside the soul
Melts into the brain
Life is uncontrolled

Victim of cocaine

Dream your life, life's a dream
Another line, a deadly scheme
You will pay
Through the nose
An evil plot to get the blow

You will see, you are left
With nothing more, you bargained for
The money's gone, left in despair
You coming down, what you can't bear

Hell inside the soul melts into the brain
Life is uncontrolled, victim of cocaine

Conscious will never recover
Temptations taking control
Body's rejecting the substance
School of the wasted enrolled

Evil prevails to take over
Something like driving while blind
Reality must take cover
Left with a scar on the mind
5. The Burning of Atlanta (4:55)
The craving to ignite, reflects a glowing light
The fire in his eyes is ibearing no disguise
Armed with an evil grin, that sparks the flame within
The pyromaniac will burn this town, ignoring all costs

Atlanta is burning down
Atlanta is burning down
Atlanta is burning down
Atlanta is burning down

Thousands will die
And there's no telling why

In his psychotic mind, his twisted thoughts unmind
No motive to this deed, he's of an evil breed
A killer to his grave, now who could ever save
The striker meets the match, the flames begin to catch
And he's gone

[Repeat chorus]

The culprit of the crime will not escape this time
Cause what he left behind, would be the proof they'd find
A tank of gasoline was proof...the guillotine

[Repeat chorus]
6. Eternal Eyes (Last Nail in the Coffin, Part 2) (3:25)
[Lyrics: Tony Portaro, Music: Tony Portaro/Tony Bono]

A bomb explodes in your head, it's one of those days
You should have stayed in bed, something's gone wrong
Nothing's gone right, eternal eyes will take you alive

It's a fact of life, it's a fact of death - eternal eyes
Are you dead or alive, can't get them out of your face
Can't get them out of your mind, you'll never escape
With two feet in your grave
7. Snake Pit (3:54)
Judgement day's here, smell of death's near
Captor's ignoring the cries
Tragedy's stand, trouble at hand
Death jury plots the demise
Hungry to kill
Torture at will

Anxiously waiting the word
Sentence to cast
Won't be the last
Laugh when the verdict is heard

Last straw
Through with the final injunction
Case closed
No one will ever get free

Snake pit
Snake pit
Snake pit

Guilty of sin, no one will win
Death jurers plot till the death
Justice at large, make up a change
Waiting to stear your last breath

Gaffle will fall, order from all
Silence overcomes the court
Don't say a word
Sentence is heard
Might make the vision distort

[Repeat chorus]
[1st verse]
8. Spiral of Violence (5:46)
One man with our lives in his hands
So much power
And so much pressure - is waiting on his command

From out of the norm, a winning battle plan
And it's out of our hands
So the regiments form

The angel of war
Unleashing terror

Who'll throw the first crushing blow
Who will decide who has the last laugh
Who will throw the last blow

One of a kind
Who's out of his mind
He who thinks he holds all the answers
Can destroy all mankind

[Repeat chorus]

Heard cut through the sky
Flip of a coin turns heads you will live
Lands on tails you will die
A nuclear bomb
A flamethrower and a hand grenade
And I'm back in Viet Nam

[Repeat chorus]
9. Respect the Dead (3:11)
Ones your souls at rest
That's when you'll cofess
Cut you down to size
Make you realize

That you not so tough
Say you've had enough
What it takes to learn
On the cross you'll burn

You must respect the dead
That's where your future lies
You must respect the dead
Or they'll rip out your eyes

When you in your tomb
You will meet with doom
Cause you've cursed the dead
Better left unsaid

You'll regret the days
That you've spit on graves
Now your time has come
You immortal scum

[Repeat chorus]
[1st verse]
10. Perpetual Warfare (Outro) (1:42)
