Machine Head

The Burning Red tracks

Lyrics

1. Enter The Phoenix





2. Desire To Fire

We turn desire to fire
electric spark to the wire
highered the stakes when we brought
this monster life
prevail by daring to fail
others content just to sail
hail the future we bring

we bring chaos to blocks
like riots to watts
blow up spots, taking the crown
off the top notch
create the pace
that you all will follow
sporadic flow buckles up
like a calico
We D-O smoke sensmilla
vodka and C-O-K-E
is the real deal
you flubber, never had to suffer
life's gettin harder
and it's only gettin tougher

save some for me
cant stop what were going to be

[Chorus:]
walk with me
and take this seed
a fire for you
so dare to fail
will you

when my pen hits pad
it results in catastrophe
words and verbs come
to form your disaster
if you want it, you got it
never hit I spot it
now come and watch me rise

on the tools, I blew
more money than Latrell
think I know you too well
you fell and stumbled
laughin as you tumbled
I guess you forgot
about the power we rock
come "ALL HAIL THE"
Machine Head battery
the good, the bad, the ugly
savage in capacity
yeah you been fucked
stuck in a rut
your life has been sucked
your tail has been tucked

save some for me
can't stop what were going to be
just watch as as i demonstrate
the reason we dominate

[chorus]

If we stand alone
and believe in whole
and you tell me
it's all I believe in
yes we stand alone
and believe in whole
if you tell me
it's all we believe in
because we
we'll chew and spit you out
and pray upon the weaker
take what we want

[chorus]




3. Nothing Left

Withered away I see it
Every day complacent
Desecrates the fabric of lies
Emptiness fills inside me
Bitterness has denied me
Faith that this world
Could every really give a shit

When I feel it
Come falling
I turn you away

I am the things that you fear
My leap of faith without a sound
Don't push my back against the wall
Yes I have strength will never fall

Withered inside
This soul has petrified
As concrete fills the skies
This life is disarray
Consequence every action
Brings violence from the passions
Loneliness the emotion
Buried inside

When I feel it
Come falling
I turn you away

I am the things that you fear
My leap of faith without a sound
Don't push my back against the wall
Yes I have strength will never fall

I feel around the falling sun
For so long I fade away..away
For years to now been holdin' on
For so long I fade away.. away

I have nothing left for nobody else
I have nothing left for nobody

Feel it
Come falling
I turn you away

I am the things that you fear
My leap of faith without a sound
Don't push my back against the wall
Yes I have strength will never fall




4. The Blood, The Sweat, The Tears

Yes I've walked the path thats righteous
Many men have walked before
Yeah this pain cell, the broken shell
Scraped, shackled onto the floor
So welcome to the world that I lived in
Puking out violent hate
My world entered a false recluse
Sickening from disease
But did I see
Decision me
Make me want it more than you
But I deny your flesh
Cause pain's my wish
Get wasted on self destruct

So hold on to the end...

Its all about the blood, the sweat, the tears
A tribute to the strength built through the years

Oh yes I've walked the path that
gives me confidence strong and pure
Now I realized that freedom rises
from comfort in the source
I built these walls around me
And I can't break them all away
And I focus on the strength I call
Insufferable and insane

So hold on to the end...

Its all about the blood, the sweat, the tears
A tribute to the strength built through the years
A tribute to soul...

Take this
Focus
Madness
To take...

...hold...on...on...on...

hold on.. falling.. please let go..
hold on.. i'm falling... i'm falling down again...

Its all about the blood, the sweat, the tears
Attribute to the strength built through the years

A tribute cause time will sear the wound
Cause time will sear the wound

5. Silver

Yes I hold some keys of gold
With cigarettes and silver bullets
Angels cry and devils lie
The world is our stage
Look inside and try and find
The part of me that's whole
I wish I knew
But I got threw behind

Take my hand
Across this land
Escape this, all the hell inside
Create this man
To make my stand
And break this hardened shell in time

I see a mirror to me
The lines along my face are drawn in
I believe reflections bleed
The sorrows of our souls
Let me know the hurt that shows and wish it all away
Cause now you'll see
Why the pain and me
Collide

I see the walls around me
Fall around me
And everything is alright
I see the god among me
Fall among me
And everything beside
I see those walls surround you
Tie and bound you
You'll drown cause you're so
Cold
Cold
Cold
Cold

Take my hand
Across this land
Escape this, all the hell inside
Create this man
To make my stand
And break this hardened shell in time

6. From This Day

You gotta
Stand tall and cut away the ties
Drop walls and hold that head up high
The world is fast and youth aint gonna wait
So grab a hold before it gets to late
Bare your soul and strip away the cold
Of withered life thats past so gray and cold
Cause all the pain that thats filled these eyes you see
Was made to bleed just recently
Tears that made me
Ashamed to be me
But that gave me
Strength to see me
Made a spark that
Lit the dark
Let me shine

[Chorus:]
Time to see, believe this in me
The pain that i feel deep inside

Cause its time we come together
Be on because im bout to now
So do it now or never
I fall sleep to freeways far from here
Spend half the night just drinking beer
From this day on shall be the words
My flesh and bones shall make it heard
Dont you test Ill have to mess with you
Do my best so fuck the rest of you
One of these days
You'll see I've always been right

[Chorus]

And it makes me glad
When i see the sun
And it makes me sad
When you feel my one
And i thank my god
Got a girl like you
And i thank my god
Did you save me

[Chorus]




7. Exhale The Vile

Can't match the stare within these eyes
Do you have the strength for all your lies
Can't stand the pain with which i seethe
This integrity is what i breathe
I inhale this life i gave to you
And exhale the vile

Time will tell
Because my friend and
Never will I concede the end
Cause catarac resin fills my eyes
Never gonna see the man
Through your fake lies

Tell me the things
thatll take time
To help see the things
That'll take this
Burn inside of me

Can't feel the sting from words gone by
Can't keep the papers filled with lies
Ten fold, this confidence I breed
Created back the words I see
I'll inhale this gift I gave to you
And exhale desire

Kill this fire with gasoline
Convictions I spit, my faith obscene
Heretic Jackals worship liars
Forever I'll be the god that you desire

Tell me the things that'll take time
To help see the things that'll take this
And hold onto things that'll make my
To make me the thing that breaks this
Burn inside of me

Time will tell because my friend and
Never will I concede the end
Heretic Jackals worship liars
Forever I'll be the god that you desire

Tell me the things that'll take time
To help see the things that'll take this
And hold onto things that'll make my
To make me the thing that breaks this
Burn inside of me
Burn inside of me
Burn inside of me
Burn inside of me




8. Message In A Bottle

[The Police Cover]

Just a castaway
An island lost at sea
Another lonely day
There's no one here but me
More loneliness
Than any man could bear
Rescue me before I fall into despair

I'll send an SOS to the world
I'll send an SOS to the world
I hope that someone gets my
I hope that someone gets my
I hope that someone gets my
Message in a bottle

A year has passed since I wrote my notes
But I should have known this right from the start
Only hope can keep us together
Love can mend your life
But love can break your heart

I'll send an SOS to the world
I'll send an SOS to the world
I hope that someone gets my
I hope that someone gets my
I hope that someone gets my
Message in a bottle




9. Devil With The King's Card

I will see you rise and fall
I will be you rise and fall
I will make you rise and fall
I create your rise and fall
And I will be you

Got bored with me because I'm
Born with conviction
From a pain you'll never ever understand, understand
Never forget what I said cause you ain't half of me
I'll tear down and break anything that stands in front of me
I'm taking down what the fuck is ever in my way
So get way

I will see you rise and fall
I will be you rise and fall
I will make you rise and fall
I create your rise and fall
And I will be you

But for me I'll forgive despite your actions
Cos you never ever ever act on what you said
Like you said
Give it to me, let it be,
But you're the one who quit
You said it yourself, you're the best
and you can handle it
The cry, watch how Machine Head takes it all, it all

And i feel for you
Cos your eyes they whore
And I think I hurt
Cos of something more
You see I'm falling
All apart
Cos your eyes they
Decide your heart

Rise and fall
And I will make the walls fall
And I will make the walls fall
And I will make the walls fall
And I will make the walls fall
Down.. Down.. Fall down.. Fall down..

I will see you rise and fall
I will be you rise and fall
I will make you rise and fall
I create your rise and fall
And I will be you




10. I Defy

Be my one
Would you take my son?
Would you tell someone whether we had fun?
With your hero, double zero
Goin' in circles 'round your fearo
Then I'm never ever falling again
Would you take my grace
Look into my face
With your limp handshake
And your smile thats fake
Would you back my fight
Say you're down for right
See its easy to say when you weren't doin' nothin

Maker makes me long for a better way
You fear my strength if we're backed into a cage

Because I,
I defy

See my fate
Underestimate
I intoxicate while you emulate
With the losers and the users
Suckin' up to the abusers
And I'm never ever fallin' again
For the tricks you play
All the fronts you claim
And you just cant fake
The respect I make
You're a parasite
You conform on site
You're a leak and a cheat
Always weak and always will be

Maker makes me long for a better way
You fear my strength if we're backed into a cage

Because I,
I defy

So burn it apart son

I'll give it away
I'll see
Why didn't you end the pain

I can't take this
I can't fake this
I will break this
I will make this

Cause
I defy




11. Five

I remember, it was the month october
In a garage, i was standing scared and sober
I could smell your breathing, and the pain your leaving
So ashamed, i feel it
And now i am left to fate

For all the times i'd be losing my mind
You molest and destroy just a five year old boy
And you make me suffer, motherfucker
Ripped my heart out
It was so good

I remember words that never left me
From a stroke of til the here's what you do for me
If you tell, i'll kill you
Rip the tounge out from you
Wish that i could stop you
Please god make this go away

For all the times i'd be losing my mind
You molest and destroy just a five year old boy
And you make me suffer, mother fucker
Ripped my heart out
Innocence was lost

And i feel it
I can't take it
I don't want it
Anymore

Was only five
And i feel it
Cant take it anymore

For all the times i heard you
Say in my goddamned mind
Make it sooner if i suck you
I'd make you suffer
Make you suffer
Motherfucker

For all the times i'd be losing my mind
You molest and destroy just a five year old boy
And you make me suffer, motherfucker
Ripped my heart out..
...I was only five...
...Five...




12. The Burning Red

I see the sun begin to rise
And I'm wounded
I've seen the world from painted eyes
That I'm crying through
I watch the darkness hit the tides
And confide in...

Hold On I'm falling
Can't breathe anymore
Cause an ocean has opened
These scars need to heal over

Caress the needle prick in my eye
The tears fell like rain
I've rode the phoenix as she glides
And I've gone insane
I've seen the light of suicide
And I'm dying

Hold on, I'm falling
Can't breathe anymore
Cause an ocean has opened
These scars need to heal over

Hold on I'm falling, can't reach... reach...

Colder and colder
Just hold onto me
