Lyrics

1. CONCRETE JUNGLE

A shot in the dark
On a New York night
The dream of the hunter
And the doomed man's fright

[Chorus:]
Rock
Roar
In the land of the predator
Concrete jungle

Survival of the fittest
And the jungle's alive
The plight of the nigger
And the honkey jive

[Chorus]

The Lady's liberty
Is getting old
Prey for justice
Will our freedom be sold

[Chorus]




2. TOE JAM

Pick your partner, nice and tight
'Cause we'll do more than dance tonight
Now promenade that's how it goes
You bucks beware of dosie dose
Dosie dose
Allemande in and allemande out
Hip your partner, make her shout
Make her shout
Back to the front or side to side
Tip your cap and come inside
Down with her fishnets up with her skirt
Dig a little deeper till you hit paydirt

Toe jam

Checkin' out her bedspan takin' it slow
Honey does your pussy scratch, don't you wanna know?
Up to the ceiling, down to the floor
If she rattles her heels you know she wants more
Till she wants more
Right leg up, left leg down
Third leg out and shake it all around
Boys on bottom, girls on top
Dance all night never gonna stop

Toe jam

Ladies choice, now choose your beau
Show 'em everything you know
Bow to the west, bow to the east
Bend for the guy that you love best
That you love best
Girls out front, boys behind
Don't be shy to bump and grind
Sweep the lady off her feet
Swing her around to the bouncing beat
Ladies in the center, now gents take care
Hold her down, don't let her rear
Dip and dive, you're on your own
Bow to your partner and drive her home!




3. MOTORMOUNT

You've tried them all from big to small
But no one's turned your crank
You're here tonight to get done right
I'm gonna fill your tank
Pull in the bay it's your lucky day
Get up on the hoist
From underneath we'll tool and grease
Gonna get you moist

What I see just can't be
Have to work you overtime
Gonna line you up and prime you up
Make you run so fine
Lift the hood if you know what's good
I wanna spark the gap
Fuel injection - No infection
Clean right to the cap

Ride the clutch motormount
Drive all night
Grind the gears motormount
Hold on tight

Motormount (Drive all night)

Dip my wrench into your stench
And twist the nuts up tight
Anticipate, accelerate
And torque with all my might

Manifold - Got to hold
Transmission - Hydraulic spin

High speed ride - Power glide
Can't survive overdrive

Pistons screaming, rings are seizing
Think your valves are gone
Start to tire, then backfire
No longer can go on

Overheating - You're peaking
Start steamin' - Watch you blow

High speed ride - Power glide
Can't survive overdrive

Motormount (Drive all night)




4. FORGED IN FIRE

Scraping the Earth in search of the essence
Metallic rock ore where iron is present
Extraction smelters burn hot with phosphorescence

Rivulets of sweat steam hot in the mold
Splashes in magenta, yellow and gold
Glowing sparks flashing too hot to hold

Made for pounding a massive weight
Forming metal, willing fate

Power blasted streams engage the injection
The mechanism reacts with affection
Processing starts and so begins infection

Altered shape, affected matter
Giving form, an ominous factor
Never break it, it will never bend
The anvil was forged in fire

Made for pounding a massive weight
Forming metal, willing fate




5. BLOOD ON THE ICE

Slap shot sucker shot
Down on your knees
Skate to the face
You're gouged and you bleed
Tussle and muscle
Flare like a rocket
Goon squad hired hit
A buck in the pocket

Blood on the ice

Puck shy, black eye
Jam in the corner
Tangled up, beat up
A body for the coroner

Blood on the ice

Pile up, punch out
In the end zone
Puck in the mouth
The sound of crushed bone

Blood on the ice

Shoot to score
Fight to kill
Play to win
Cheer for more

Rookie rabbit punches
Blow to blow
Duck and punch, dance
Toe to toe
Face off, square off
Cross check to the jaw
High stick, end butt
You wanna break the law

Blood on the ice
Blood on the ice
Pounding way to win the fight
Blood on the ice
Black and blue; red on white




6. MARCH OF THE CRABS

(Instrumental)




7. JACKHAMMER

Slip away out the back door
Get away from the scenery score
In the car you're ready to move
In the backseat you start to groove

Right turn left turn got the boys in both hands
Playin' in stereo like you do with most bands

Unlocking the door
I can tell you can't wait
Seekin' power rockin'
Girl you love to vibrate

Can't get to sleep 'cause I hear you squealin'
Like a stuck little pig you love the feelin'
I wish you'd shut up 'cause I'm tryin' to sleep
I'm gonna gag you gonna push it down deep

Running out of breath
You're chokin' fast
You begin to sputter
You're not gonna last

[Chorus:]
Jackhammer pounding your pile
Jackhammer you're gonna cream
Jackhammer that's your style
Jackhammer you're gonna scream

There you go again with your dirty little mind
Trying to turn me on won't happen this time
Hangin' around and that won't do
Nothing on my mind but getting' rid of you

Time for you to leave
Can't take no more
Just wanna see you
Walking out the door

[Chorus]




8. METAL ON METAL

Metal on metal
It's what I crave
The louder the better
I'll turn in my grave

Metal on metal
Ears start to bleed
Cranking it up
Fulfilling my need

Metal on metal
Shakin' the place
Blows back your hair
Caves in your face

Metal on metal
Feeling the grind
Up go the hammers
A victim to find

Metal on metal
Heads start to bang
Denim and leathers
Chains that clang

[Chorus:]
Keep on rockin'
Keep on rockin'
To this metal tonight
Keep on pounding
Keep on pounding
Join the heavy metal fight

Metal on metal
Gets you so high
Excitement and action
Won't pass you by

Metal on metal
The hardened breed
True to the end
A fire to feed

Metal on metal
Heat starts to rise
Kickin' it out
With screams and cries

Metal on metal
Never will die
Parties and concerts
Keep it alive

Metal on metal
It's the only way
To hell with tomorrow
Let's live for today

[Chorus]




9. WINGED ASSASSINS

Machines made for killing at mach speed and more
Sleek in design and loaded for war
Sidewinding missiles, heat-seeks and sparrows
Strafing squadrons cause havoc and terror

Winged Assassins - Seek their prey

Camouflage colours impair observation
Insignia painted depicting its nation
Defying detection at low altitude
Penetrate, attack, evade and elude

Soaring death - Taking lives
No escape - Widows weep

Winged Assassins - Seek their prey

Radar is sweeping and scanning the skies
Searching out targets with infrared eyes
Enemy forces appear on the screen
Computers lock in, all systems are green

Formation - Orders, permission to arm
Closing in - To make the kill

Trigger in hand, blood lust in his heart
The pilot is ready to play out his part
Underwing stores await a demand
Releasing the arsenal upon his command

Soaring death - Taking lives
No escape - Widows weep

Permission is given to unleash the power
Rockets home in, strike and devour
Wreckage falls helpless rolling in flames
Another life wasted in some General's games

Task complete - Honours awaiting heroes
Painted scrap - Awarding murder

Winged Assassins - Seek their prey




10. 666

Chains of death have been unleashed
Ripped and tattered stricken from hell
Sold my soul but the contract's been breached
Entering humanity from death's well

Your fate is sealed revelation is near
I hear your screams but I thrive off your fear
Received my warning but you didn't, didn't, didn't learn

666

Make my wars in the minds of man
Make the being itself fulfill my cause
Hitler and Manson were my right hand
To these men I entrusted my sacred laws

I'd rather be a king below than a servant above
I'd rather be free and hate than a prisoner of love
You heard my warning but you didn't, didn't, didn't learn

666




11. MOTHRA

In a small town outside of destiny
The legend lives on yet it lives free
That night the mountains glowed with fiery rage
From the darkness of hell out she came

Comin' to get you! You can't escape
You're gonna die, you wonder why?!

Might wings beat out thunderous gusts of wind
Megatron eyes explode in the skies, it begins!
Talons like razors are shredding your bones to pieces
Is this a dream or is God's telling you it's over?

[Chorus:]
Mothra, Mothra, Mothra

Buildings are falling, black death is above you
You can't run there's nowhere to go
Rubble and stone block your path
You can't escape from its wrath

[Chorus]

Hot flashes burst, melting down civilization
Leaving destruction and desolation
You're still alive but your luck is running out
It's not a dream God's told you it's over
It's over!!!

What can we do?
A creature of the night
Are we through?
Will this be our plight
Please save us, please
What did we wrong to you?
This holocaust is killing all of us

I've sent this beast to purify your kind
And for your world leave no life behind

Conquest complete, Mothra is nesting
Population for future infesting
Purification yes it's been achieved
For eternity Mothra reigns supreme

[Chorus]
