Axe to Grind Lyrics

(11)
Submitted by level LightListener
1. March of the Vikings (0:48)
instrumental
2. Demon in the Mirror (3:49)
She breaks through your conscience into the night
A cold wind blows out the candles
Cos she just can't stand the light

Her poison pen is poised to paint you
With wicked words and lies
The barbs of vitriol surround you
And there's hatred in her eyes

Demon, in the mirror - living out your lies
Demon, in the mirror - right before your eyes

She's just a grim reflection of all your wicked sin
But the chilling feel of lies made real
And so the hype begins

She preys on fears with vengeful fury
She'll rip your life apart
You're guilty, she's the judge and jury
And her words cut through your heart

Demon, in the mirror - living out your lies
Demon, in the mirror - right before your eyes
Demon, in the mirror - watching all your moves
Demon, in the mirror - you face the final truth

There's something strange behind your eyes
Your alter ego's tellin' lies
But now you heed the voice's call
And so our hero takes a fall...

Demon, in the mirror - living out your lies
Demon, in the mirror - right before your eyes
Demon, in the mirror - watching all your moves
Demon, in the mirror - you face the final truth

Demon, yeah!
3. Ride With the Wind (3:58)
Open up the highway the blacktop's calling me
Needles pushing to the red - set me free
Gleaming chrome and leather, gonna hit the road
Angels fly at midnight - the biker code

There's no finer thrill than our twin wheels burning
Blazing a trail 'til the dawn
There's only two things that this biker's yearning
Moon on the rise, my Harley to ride - with the wind

Ride! Ride! Riding with the wind
Yeah yeah - I wanna ride!
Ride! Ride! Riding with the wind

Out into the distance, the moon will light my way
Eating up the highway - break of day
Revving on the redline, goin' off the scale
Heading for a hairpin - on the edge

Prechorus
Chorus

Let's begin!

My life flashes before me, I'm flying through the air
The ground rushes towards me, but I don't even care
I lived to ride the highways, I've gambled and I've sinned
I had to do it my way, and now I'll ride the wind

Prechorus
Chorus

I wanna ride
Riding with the wind
Twin wheels burning
Riding with the wind
Mm, got that yearning, yeah
Huh!
4. Metal Nation (Raise Your Hands) (4:29)
We're living in the underground
You'll never break our spirit
We are legion

Denim, leather - march together
Sworn to the music, we're defending

The music you see, lives on in me
It's never on the radio
We're here to let you know
It's time to make a stand!!!

C'mon! C'mon! Raise your hands
We are the metal nation
C'mon raise your hands - together we can make it
We are the metal nation

We rise up from the underground
United by the spirit
Together we're strong - yeah, we're all for one

See our mighty numbers
Hear the guitars wake from slumber
Blow them all to hell!

The music you see, lives on in me
It's never on the radio
We're here to let you know
It's time to make a stand!!!

C'mon! Raise your hands
We are the metal nation
C'mon raise your hands - together we can make it
We are the metal nation

Hey hey! Metal nation... hey hey! Metal nation

C'mon! C'mon! Raise your hands
We are the metal nation
C'mon raise your hands - together we can make it
C'mon! C'mon!
We are the metal nation
And we are your salvation...
5. Awakening / Pandora's Box (4:57)
a) Awakening

Instrumental

b) Pandora's Box

Ooh yeah
Mmmm...
Oh no, no no...

Don't open Pandora's box
Don't you touch those latches and locks
You can't free what's hidden within
Demons, and devils, and every man's sin

Don't dare to peek inside
Or all good souls must run and hide
Chaos reign and brimstone fire
Pandora's box is Earth's pariah

Evil takes flight above the earth
The devil spawns his afterbirth

Pandora - no hope for ya
Pandora - a new Gomorrah

But wait, what's that beneath the lid?
You kept hope hidden, I know you did
That failing beacon, fading light
Our one last chance in this blackest night

But all around the fates abide
And mortals fight to stay alive
With talons, razored tooth and claw
We're dragged into the gaping maw

Her curiosity released
The worst of every man and beast

Evil taking flight!

And all around the fates abide
And mortals fight to stay alive
With talons, razored tooth and claw
We're dragged into the gaping maw

Her curiosity released
The worst of every man and beast

Evil taking flight!
6. Axe to Grind (2:56)
instrumental
7. Bird of Prey (4:54)
I circle high above you and I look down upon you
Riding on the breeze, I'll do with you as I please
When you see my feathers fly, then you know it's time to die
I've got you in my sights, and you're food for me tonight

Opens her wings - opens the game
Thinking the things - No-one can name
Bird of Prey - Bird of Prey

Takes to the skies - Out of the blue
Hear the refrain - calling to you
Bird of Prey - Bird of Prey

Into the night spirits will fly
Draws down her veil ready to feast
Calling your name, calling the game
Taking the sun blighting the day
You fear for your life, taken by the...

Bird of Prey - Will ruin your day

Into the dive, straight to the heart
The taking of life - turned into art

Bird of Prey - Bird of Prey
It might seem insane but you're the bait
You're food for the Gods and now it's too late
Look to the skies, fear for your life
Could be tomorrow, could be today
A breath on the wind is gonna blow you, away...

You take a drink believing, in some enchanted evening
But she holds all the cards and you're falling fast and hard

Nowhere to run, nowhere to hide
Opens her wings, summoning flight
Demon will rise into the night
You gotta believe that she's having her way
You gotta believe that you're marked by the...

Bird of Prey - Will ruin your day
Bird of Prey - I'm gonna ruin your day!
8. Lost Without Warning (3:48)
They sailed for the great unknown
The seeds of exploration sown
Sweethearts' tears alone at home
Just whispers on the wind....time and time again

Crashing waves and creaking timbers
Man against the elements
Primal fears forever linger
Guided by the firmament

Damn this voyage of desperation for other people's gold
Souls without salvation, lost without warning

Message thrown out in a bottle so this tale can be told
Met our dark damnation, lost without warning

The darkness of the Ocean's depths
We all succumb to Neptune's threats
And Mecca's mighty minarets
Are just a mirage now... oh no!

Pawns of avaricious masters
Men the fuel they choose to burn
Wide the jaws of our disaster
Taken by Leviathan

Damn this voyage of desperation for other people's gold
Souls without salvation, lost without warning

Now we float in icy limbo, silent in our rage
Hear us scratching at your window from another age

Damn this voyage of desperation for other people's gold
Souls without salvation, lost without warning

Souls without salvation, lost without warning... lost
9. Part of the Machine (4:03)
Blood dries up in your veins
Your life won't be the same
Connected to the host
Electrolytes replace your soul
Synthetic spinal crack
You fade to bible black
Your will is not your own
Too late, the circuits thrown

The terminal takes complete surrender - lovin' your pain
Bends your will to the mass collider
Nothing will be the same...

You're part of the machine - huh!
You're part of the machine - ah!

Humanity the curse
But you're set for something worse
Your soul receives the void
A spark to solenoid
Your life becomes undone
A string of zero-ones
New science designed to kill
And bend you to his will

The terminal takes complete surrender - lovin' your pain
Bends your will to the mass collider
Nothing will be the same..

Chorus

You are a fading light - become a Neophyte
Powered by nuclear fuel
Collecting all you need to rule!

Chorus
10. The Killing of Chelsea 100 (5:11)
"Welcome to the Chelsea Hotel.."

Set among the brownstones
Faded, balustraded - protector of their sins
All who crossed the portal felt the magic
Coursing through it deep within

Echoes in the stairwells
Memories from the past
Electrified and wicked
Welcomes sinners coming back

And Janis goes down like a bird on the wire
And Dylan Thomas checks out in 205
And Mr. Zimmerman writes of a lady's sad eyes
Jack Kerouac's back on the road again

Chelsea - one - zero - zero (rest stop)
Chelsea - one - zero… zero

Tales of lust and grandeur
Feed my dark deception
Inspire and corrupt
Through my door I think I hear them
Distant sirens in the street

Final act of violence
Bloodstains mark the end
They rammed the door and found me
And the knife's my only friend

And the tapping of the Remington's getting too loud
And guitars serenade the infected crowd
There's a story behind every one of these doors
But don't go looking for Sid's it ain't there any more

Chelsea - one - zero - zero (rest stop)
Chelsea - one - zero ...zero (for the rare individual)
Chelsea - one - zero - zero (pit stop)
Chelsea - one - zero ...zero (for the last incurables)

Hahaha!

Everybody passing through here is somebody
Yet they're nobody on the outside
You've got to pay the piper
Checkout has your bill
Remember Sid and Nancy's bitter pill

Warhol takes a bullet for the feminist cause
And Dee Dee checks out through the suicide doors
Edie's candlelight eyes set the room on fire
And Janis goes down like a bird on the wire...

Chelsea - one - zero - zero (rest stop)
Chelsea - one - zero ...zero (for the rare individual)
Chelsea - one - zero - zero (pit stop)
Chelsea - one - zero ...zero (you're the last...)

"Checking out Sir?"
11. Beyond the Veil (1:38)
instrumental
