1. Bulldozer

London are you ready to do this?
Are you ready?

Come on
Into the battles, making cages rattle
There's a pain that's inside us and we're letting it out
Charge right in, we dare to fail
No one is giving in, always we live to win
A hunger turns and burns inside of all of us
And it will not be denied

Walking a path untraveled to reach higher level
Challenging always going against the grain
Blood for blood - that is the rule
And we will make the rules, never be fortune's fool
There's right and wrong in almost everything we do
For us we do what is right

Bulldozer feeds upon the weaker as they fall
Bulldozer crushes all

Somebody told me I should do what they told me
But there's a hole in that plan and I'm tearing it down
Trust our guts, follow our hearts
No one can break these nuts, these lips ain't kissing butts
The path of most resistance tests all of our strength
This strength will not be denied

Bulldozer feeds upon the weaker as they fall
Bulldozer crushes all
xxx
Bulldozer feeds upon the weaker as they fall
Bulldozer crushes all

Walking on paths untraveled
Challenging one and all
Deeper into the battles
Alone and standing tall
The more evolving changes
The more we stay the same
Full steam against the odds
Go headfirst against the grain

Full steam we go against the odds
Headfirst we go against the grain
Full steam we go against the odds
Headfirst we go against the grain
Full steam we go against the odds
Headfirst we go against the grain

Bulldozer goes against the odds
Bulldozer goes against the grain

Against the odds, against the grain
We go against the odds, against the grain

This is the bulldozer
This is the bulldozer
Go
Go




2. The Blood, The Sweat, The Tears

London this song is out from the Burning Red
this is The Blood, The Sweat, The Tears

O yes I walk the righteous
Many men have walked before
And this pain's held
A broken shell
Straight shackled onto the floor

So welcome to the world
That i lived in
Puking up bile and hate
My world has turned
To false inclusion
Sickening broken state

But then I'll see
There's things in me
That make you want this
More than you

But I deny all this
Cause pain was my bliss
Get wasted on self destruct

Just hold on to the edge

It's all about
The blood, the sweat, the tears
Attribute to the strength
Built through the years
It's all about
The blood, the sweat, the tears
Attribute to the strength
Built through the years

Yes i walk the path
That gives me
Confidence strong and pure
Now i realize
That freedom rises
From confronting the source

I built these walls around me
And I can break them all away
I'll focus all the strength I call
Into unstoppable energy

so hold on to the edge

It's all about
The blood, the sweat, the tears
Attribute to the strength
Built through the years
t's all about
The blood, the sweat, the tears
Attribute to the strength
Built through the years
Attribute to the strength

[solo]

Hold on
I'm not falling
Not falling down again

It's all about
The blood, the sweat, the tears
Attribute to the strength
Built through the years
It's all about
The blood, the sweat, the tears
Attribute to the strength
Built through the years

Believe me that
Time will sear the wound
Time will sear the wound
Time will seal the wound

Thank you London
Is London England fell like getting heavy tonight with Machne Head?




3. Ten Ton Hammer

[London this is out from The More Things Change...
this is Ten Ton Hammer]

[London let me fuckin' hear you]

Yea Yea
I am the thing that makes you sick
I am the blame that gets placed quick
Detect the crack within your lie (your lie)

I'll be the wrath of your disdain
I'll be the fear in you engrained
Become the facts that you deny (deny)

I can feel this pain is real
I hate deep down inside
And like broken glass you'll shatter
With bloody fists I'll batter
Like a ten ton hammer, son
Ooo

Yea yea
1'll be the trembling in your breath
Trickle of blood upon your flesh
You'd love to watch me take the fall - FALL!

I'll be the thing that you despise
'Cause I'm the path to your demise
And I'm a be there standing tall - TALL!

I can feel this pain is real
I hate deep down inside
And like broken glass you'll shatter
With bloody fists I'll batter
Like a ten ton hammer, son

[London are you fuckin' have a good time?]

I can't stand or take another day my friend
You could learn a thing or two
I can't stand or take another day my friend
You could learn a thing or two




I can feel this pain is real
I hate deep down inside
I can feel this pain is real
I hate deep down inside
And like broken glass you'll shatter
With bloody fists I'll batter
Like a ten ton hammer, son London

[London this next song the Machine Head is gonna do for you here
is out for our very first album Burn My Eyes]

4. Old

[This song right now is called Old
London I know you say about a bull shit right now
but I'm not, becouse I wanna see every motherfucker
in here from the left to the right
from the balcony to the front
up to this fuckin 'scene
Are you with me?]




I am the man that defends all things profane
6000 years is the time that I shall reign
And with a grin drank the blood of holy swine
Impurity made the blood turn into wine

Old man, dead hand
If only in their insanity
The lie feeds off their greed
Jesus wept

I am the pain that feeds off your weakness
A sickening born of hate not of the blessed
And with that time I will crush all things they prey
Destroying all from the known to the arcane

Old man, dead hand
If only in their insanity
The lie feeds off their greed
Jesus wept

Bun my eyes and try to blind me
Bury me so they won't find me
Try to suck my power empty
Got no crown of thorns on me

So burn my eyes and try to blind
Bury me so they won't find
Try to suck my power dry
You got no crown of thorns on me

Old man, dead hand
If only in their insanity
The lie feeds off their greed
Jesus wept

5. Crashing Around You

I am your nightmares, true scares
That dream when you can't stop from falling
Can't fight, can't run
Can't stop the person you've become

I am your heartbreaks, mistakes
That place inside your hate
I am that shadow following every move, reminding you
That it's never good enough, never good enough
Even though you'll try and try
I'm gonna call your bluff
Because I am the thing bringing the feelings when...

Your world comes crashing around you
Smashes down around you
When will you see that you cannot hide from me?

When you feel darkness, hopeless
Can't cope with all the stress
I'll make you hate life bring strife
Remember failures hardened stare
And it's never gonna change, never gonna change
Always they'll be judging you
Compared to who and who
You trust in me but I only live to see

Your world come crashing around you
Smash down around you
When will you see that you cannot hide from me?

When I come for you
When I see through you
When I eat through you
When I destroy you

You'll think you're betrayed, astray
I'll leave you ripped and torn so bad you
Can't trust, can't love
Can't understand why life's so fucked
I'm deep inside your mind
In constant remind
If you leave your thoughts to me, believe
I'll make sure that I see

Your world come crashing around you
Smash down around you
When will you see that you cannot hide from me?

I'll make your world come crashing around you
Smash down around you
I'll let you see why cannot hide from me
Because I am you

6. Take My Scars

It's been around for a thousand years
And it'll be here for plenty more
It is the face hidden in disgrace
That has become now an open sore

It is a false messiah
It is the face of pain
The bringer of the bittersweet
The heretic insane

Take my scars
Through hands of God
I found a better way
To break the walls

Fed all the lies and desensitized
Taught to believe that it is the way
Taught to divide and exactly why
You'll never understand my rage

You've never had to borrow
You've never had to steal
You eat it with your silver spoon
For me it's real

Take my scars
Through hands of God
I found a better way
To break the walls

Lead: Robb

Blood and concrete
Piss and wine
Whores that fuck
To feel divine

They'll clean their needles
In their shrine
In ignorance
It's bliss you find

Why can't you
fuckin' open
Open up your eyes

7. I'm Your God Now

So pain told you to take her
Well I learned to accept that feeling
'Cause I found how to numb it
If only for just a short while
I'd get so high I'd forget my name
I scarred my fists. I scarred my train
I think that I'm going insane
I think that I'm going insane

So drink up, so shoot in
Why must this feeling end
I crawled in my narcotic shell
Was crucified in my own hell
A gutter's where I found myself
Among the waste I chose to well
I chose to dwell

So now I'm in your system
And I'm what helps you numb your pain
Whit time you will confide in me
So lonely my friend. I've made you lose control
You'll use me more and more with time
Our friendship grows with each mainline
So glad that you could be so blind
So glad that you could be so blind

So drink up, so shoot in
'Cause I'll make this feeling end
I built you this narcotic shell
I crucified you in your hell
Your life not yours, you're just my slave
I am your messiah of pain
And time has come to
Time has come to time has come to
There's no time to pray

'Cause I'm your God now




8. None But My Own

I am only nothing, I am only this
I am just a man with there two fists
You have asked forgiveness
You have asked respect
Only something that you did forget

All you gave you had planned to take
Beat upon me but I won't break
Stripping everything from me ? No !

Will to me your anger, will to me your rage
Will to me your lies, your sufferings
Not a man of virtue, not even a man
Will not take the hate dealt from your hands

Years of pain I will take and hone
Manifest with your broken bones
My heart bleeds for none but my own
My own

Burn
Burn

I am only nothing, I am only this
I am just a man with these two fists
You're not a man of virtue, not even a man
Will not take the hate dealt from your hands

Years of pain I will take and hone
Manifest with your broken bones
My heart bleeds for none but my own
My own

Burn
Burn

My heart bleeds for none but my own





9. From This Day

You gotta
Stand tall and cut away the ties
Drop walls and hold that heaD high
The world is fast and youth ain't gonna wait
So grab a hold before it gets too late
Bare your soul and strip away the cold
Of withered life that past so grey and old
Cause all the pain that's filled these eyes you see
Has only made them bleed just recently
Tears that made me
Ashamed to be me
But that gave me strength to see me
Made a spark that
Let the dark and let me shine

Time to see, believe this in me
This pain that i feel deep inside

Cause it's time we come together
Be on because I'm about it now
So do it now or never
I fall asleep to freeways far from here
Spend half the night just drinking beer
From this day on shall be the words
My flesh and bone shall make it heard
Don't you test I'll 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

Time to see, believe this in me
This pain that i feel deep inside

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

Time to see, believe this in me
This pain that i feel deep inside

10. American High

O my God
I Fuckin love It
Common
Check it out

I was that kid sittin' over
in the corner,
smiling with a shit-eating
grin
And I was that kid smilin' in
the back of class
'cause I'm fryin' on mescaline
I was that kid drinkin' 40's
on the bleachers
getting drunk after school
Gettin' home too late,
fallin' on my face,
way too drunk to skate
and actin' a fool
Drunk & ctin' a fool




I was that kid never doing
good at
nothing except for maybe
at P.E.
And I was that kid getting
bullied by the
filipinos rollin with ABT
Me and my friends reading
the satanic bible thinking
we should start a band
Cutting class to jam,
cutting class to jam
In my dad's garage we
learned to

Act a fool - don't need to
be cool
Pissed off too and
breaking the rules
Mama told me stay in
school
don't rock 'n roll
But this was my american
high

Check it out

I was that kid that was
try to fuck your girlfriend, couldn't
get a goddamn date
And I was that kid that was
getting hella busted for
pissin' on the subway
I fuckin' hated school
except for hanging out
with my friends, the
outcast that was
startin' up a band
Fremont was the town,
California-bound,
bay area sound, taught me
to

Act a fool - don't need to
be cool
Pissed off too and
fuckin' the rules
Mama told me stay in
school
don't rock 'n roll
But this was your american
high

Asteroids beat out homework
Slayer beat out Zeppelin
Not the sharpest noggin
that's why I'm in this band

And what you got against
me, I don't need a new job
What you got against me,
I'll get by on my own
Tellin' me I'm never getting
by from my songs
I love it when you're
proven wrong

Act a fool - don't need fuckin'
be cool
Pissed off too and
breaking the rules
Mama told me stay in
school
don't rock 'n roll
But this was my american
high

Act a fool - don't need fuckin'
be cool
Break the rules
'cause this is your american
high.
Your american high

Fuck it

11. Nothing Left

Withered away
I see it everyday
Complacence desecrates
The fabric of our lives

Emptiness fills inside me
Bitterness has denied me
Faith that this world
Could ever really give a shit

When i feel it
Come falling
I turn you away

I hear the things that you found
Might leave a face without a sound
Don't push my back against the wall
This iron strength will never fail
Will NEVER

Freezing inside
This sould has petrified
As concrete fills the skies
This life in disarray

Consequence every action
Brings violence from the passions
Loneliness the emotion
Shivering inside

When I feel it
Come falling
I turn you away

I hear the things that you found
Might leave a face without a sound
Don't push my back against the wall
This iron strength will never fail
Will NEVER

I fell aroused
The falling sun
For so long I been away
For years till now
Been holding on
For so long I been away

I've nothing left for nobody else
I've nothing left for nobody

When I feel it
Come falling
I turn you away

I hear the things that you found
Might leave a face without a sound
Don't push my back against the wall
This iron strength will never fail
Will NEVER





12. The Burning Red

I see the sun begin to rise
And I'm blinded too
I've seen the world thru
Jaded eyes that I'm crying thru
I've watched the darkness hypnotize
And confided

Hold on I'm falling can't
Breathe anymore
An ocean has opened
These scars need to
Heal over

Caress the needle prick in my skin
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
An ocean has opened
These scars need to
Heal over

Colder and colder
Just hold onto me

13. Davidian

Blind man ask me forgiveness
I won't deny myself
Disrespect you have given
Your suffering's my wealth
I feed off pain, force fed to love it
And now I swallow whole
I'll never live in the past
Let freedom ring with a shotgun blast

Burn my fist to the concrete
My fear is my strength
Power, rage unbound strength
Been pounded by the streets
Cyanide blood burns down the skyline
Hatred is purity
The bullet connects at last
Let freedom ring with a shotgun blast

Scarred
Pour the salt in the wound





14. Supercharger

Electricity is pulsing
through our veins a charge
is racing
A chain reaction through
the four of us,
to you, will make
the transformers begin
converting into overdrive

Power surge now
exploding through
Energy, filling the ominous
void within you
No need to live your life in
that gap
Got what you need right
here on lightning tap, so

Charge me, charge you
charge us, charge through
Amplify, terrify
supercharger electrifies

Getting under skin, we're
like a rash
Spreading over your body
we are the itch you
scratch
That doesn't seem to go
away
Protons, neutrons, electrons
synchronizing into one

In sheer power all will
pale
heaviness off the Richter
scale
Forever crushing the
competition in their tracks
100,000 Volts we blast, so

Charge me, charge you
charge us, charge through
Amplify, terrify
supercharger electrifies

Your - little sticks of
dynamite
We're - the fuse and
we're the light

Electricity is pulsing
through our veins a
charge is racing
A chain reaction from the
four of us,
to you, has made
it crystal clear we'll win
this war
Destiny...Victory

Braveheart - mindset, full
attack
Kamikaze, never look back
in this war, a victory is if
you feel this too
You feed off us, and we
feed off you, so

Charge me, charge you
charge us, charge through
Amplify, terrify
supercharger electrifies

Charge me, charge you
charge us, charge through
Supercharger
Supercharger
Supercharger
Supercharger.
