1. DAGGERS AND RUM

[Pirate Chant:]
Yo ho ho
Yo ho ho
Give us a bottle of rum
Yo ho ho
Yo ho ho
We be the scurvy scum

[Fade in Pirate Chant 2x]

Upon the seven seas we are the dread
We shackle our foes and keelhauls 'em dead
Walk the plank, fall in the sea
Food for the sharks, your destiny
Band of brothers and all for one
Taking treasure by sword or gun
With an iron fist we are led
By the Captain's word or we be dead

[Chorus:]
Scurvy Scum
Daggers and rum
Daggers and rum
Daggers and rum
Daggers and rum
Daggers and rum

When the crow's nest man yells 'Ships Ahoy'
We load the cannon with balls to deploy
Slit their throat or run them through
Take what we want and kill their crew
Aboard their ship we take control
Throw their captain in the hold
Bury the treasure and getaway
Just another pirate's day

[Chorus]

Daggers and rum
(You'll walk the plank)
Daggers and rum
(To the sharks)
Daggers and rum
(evil pirate laugh)
Daggers and rum

Watch the horizon for ships to loot
Steal the gold, the pirate's fruit
Raise a drink and all be hearty
Rape, pillage an plunder, just a party
Outlaw varmints with nothing to lose
Making our lives the way we choose
Live by the sword or die in a fight
Jolly Roger you do what's right

Scurvy Scum
Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey!
Daggers and rum
Daggers and rum
Daggers and rum
Daggers and rum
Daggers and rum
Daggers and rum
Daggers and rum
Daggers and rum
Daggers and rum
Daggers and rum
Daggers and rum
Daggers and rum

[Fade out Pirate Chant] (x2)




2. UP, DOWN, SIDEWAYS

Backwards and forwards and upside down
I'm the one who could say I've been around
Yes, I've been around
Use and abuse, built to last
Core of iron burning fast

[Chorus:]
Up down sideways
Up down sideways

Chaotic frenzy, a constant delight
Moth to a flame, shooting stars at night
Shooting stars at night
Adapt or die with no change
Variety is nice, can't be strange

[Chorus]

I will find a way
I live it every way
What can I say?

[Chorus]

Hands in the air, Ow! I've blown my fuse
Hold the temper, bound to lose
Bound to lose
Over the edge and back again
This in now and now's not then
Alright!

[Chorus] (x2)




3. GUN CONTROL

Protect The Constitution
Another twenty-one die
Is it the institution?
Are we to question why?
Is ownerwhip essential
For everyone to have?
But what is your credential?
Or have you just gone mad?
Wounds to bleed from
Do we need some?
Gun control
Gun control

Fear, anger and jealousy
Distortion of reality

Gun control
Gun control
Gun control
Gun control

Do you defend your family?
Or go and rob a bank?
Do you defend your country?
For that who do we thank?
Do we need some?
Gun control
Gun control

Fear, anger, misery
Distortion of reality

Gun control
Are you a vigilante?
Gun control
Another sniper on a hill?
Gun control
Become a celebrity
Gun control
Of another senseless kill
Gun control
Are you a big game hunter?
Gun control
Do you hear the call?
Gun control
Does it ever make you shudder?
Gun control
Is it the trophy on your wall?
Wounds to heal from
Do we need some?
Gun control
Gun control

Fear, anger, insanity
Distortion of reality

Gun control
Gun control
Gun control
Gun control
Gun control
When you've got the right
Gun control
A murderous plight
Gun control
When you've got the right
Gun control
There is no end in sight

Gun control




4. DIE FOR A LIE

Sacrifice in the name of God
Ultimate price and the cause of fraud
So many died for their belief
All the murderous lies and grief
Controlling people with the fear of God
Cower before his staff and rod

[Chorus 1:]
Die for a lie
Living by the book
Die for a lie
It's all been mistook

Archaic world from which it came
All the dead and all the shame
The truth will rise for us to see
Conflicting lies buried where they should be

[Chorus 2:]
[Chorus 1]
Die for a lie
Living by the book
Die for a lie
Have another look

Archeology will one day show
The more we learn, the more we know
Where we come from and where we've been
What is our purpose and what does it mean?
Bow down and fall to your knees
Damned to hell, if you please

[Chorus 2]




5. RUNAWAY TRAIN

Moving in the fast lane, down the rails we go
Nothing to stop you, for miles on end you flow
Building speed and power, on the razor's edge we shift
Only on one rail, reaction must be swift
It must be swift

[Bridge:]
Coming to a mountain hill, there is no turning back
When we hit the bottom curve we'll jump right off the track

[Chorus:]
Train
Runaway train
Train
Runaway train

The sound of squealing steel as we try to brake
Sparks and heat from the hotbox, how much will it take?
Will it take?

[Bridge]

Moving down the rail
Brakes begin to fail
There's no time to bail

Santa Fe Express, moving down the rail
Cargo load, we're moving, must get there without fail
Without fail

[Bridge]

[Chorus] (x2)
Train
Runaway train




6. ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE

Weapons of mass destruction may one day be employed
The human race is poisoned as chemical warfare's deployed
There's nowhere to run to and there is nowhere to hide
Dawning of the dead and the endless homicide

[Chorus:]
Zombie
Zombie
Zombie Apocalypse
Zombie
Zombie
Zombie
Zombie Apocalypse

Mindless mobs of mutants, the walking living dead
Migratory frenzy, the disease begins to spread

[Chorus]

Then civilization will fall
There'll be no justice for all
For all

Death and destruction becoming a routine
Only just a thought in reality obscene
Virus and bacteria, the biochemical host
Extinction of humanity, nothing but a ghost

[Chorus]
Zombie
Zombie
Zombie
Zombie
Zombie
Zombie




7. IT'S YOUR MOVE

When you turn is up and you've made a choice
Waiting to hear your opponent's voice
It's the never ending game we play
How will you win or lose and pay?

[Chorus:]
It's your move
It's your move
It's your move
It's your move

Counting cards and loaded dice
The cheater's hand and the loser's vice
Ace of spades and the joker is wild
The odds against you are stacked and piled

[Chorus]

It's your move

Move a pawn and protect the king
To win the game, that's the thing
Game of cards, a game of chess
The need to win more than less

[Chorus] (x3)

It's your move




8. AMBUSHED

First time it happend I was five years old
They threw stones at me
Didn't listen to what I'd be told
I was too blind to see

I learned quick and I lost my trust
Enemy and friend
I have to do everything I must
For myself in the end

[Bridge:]
Beware
Unfair

[Chorus 1:]
Ambushed
Shot right in the back
Ambushed
Surprise attack

Life lessons come at great expense
Keep your eyes open wide
On the edge, living the suspense
Never lose your stride
Threat arises, stand your ground
Fight for your cause
Self belief is what you've found
You make your own laws

[Bridge]

[Chorus 2:]
Ambushed
Shot right in the back
Ambushed
Shot right in the back
Ambushed
Surprise attack

A coat of armour is what I wear
Locked without a key
In my mind I know what's fair
My eyes are open and I see
Threat arises I stand my ground
Fight for my cause
Self belief is what I've found
I make my own laws

Ambushed
Shot right in the back

[Bridge]

[Chorus]




9. FIRE ON THE HIGHWAY

Driving down the road on an icy storming night (night, night)
Doing what we can to surive this horrid drive of fright (fright, fright)
Every curve and every hill, holding on in fear (fear, fear)
Doing what we can not to break or to oversteer (steer, steer)
Wheels spinning, nothing to grip
Endless swerving, an endless trip
Everywhere cars and trucks that slid off in a ditch (ditch, ditch)
Driving in the freezing rain and ice can surely be a bitch (bitch, bitch)

[Chorus:]
Gotta get right down to it
Get ourselves right on through it
Gotta get right down to it
Right down to it
Right down to it
Get ourselves back home
Fire!
Fire on the highway
Fire!
Flames burning bright

Driving down the road when we came upon a sight (sight, sight)
Glowing gold and flickering, a truck burning to the far right (far right, far right)
Wheels smoking, smoldering fire
Air that's chocking, down to the wire
Driving right past our stay and wait for hours into the night (night , night)
Speed on through, don't hesitate before the gas ignites (ignites, ignites)

[Chorus]
Fire!
Fire on the highway
Fills the dark with light

Driving down the road on an icy storming night (night, night)
Doing what we can to surive this horrid drive of fright (fright, fright)
Wheels spinning, nothing to grip
Endless swerving, an endless trip
Every curve and every hill, holding on in fear (fear, fear)
Doing what we can not to break or to oversteer (steer, steer)

[Chorus]
Fire!
Fire on the highway

[Fire Chant:]
Fire!
Fire!
Fire!
Fire!

Fire!
Fire on the highway
Fire!
Flames in the night
Fire!
Fire on the highway
Explodes like dynamite

[Fire chant] (x4)




10. RUN LIKE HELL

Off to the race you run
As fast as a bullet from a gun
Beat the clock, you must try
As fast as you can, do or die

Bat outta hell you fly
To win the race, you must try
Competing to win against time
Be in condition and be in your prime

[Chorus:]
Run like hell
Got to get away
Run like hell
You just can't stay
Run like hell
You can't be late
Run like hell
Or seal your fate

On your feet
No retreat
With the flow
Away you go

[Verse 1]

[Chorus]
Run like hell
Run like hell
Run like hell
Run like hell




11. FORGIVE DON'T FORGET

[Chorus:]
Forgive
Don't forget
Forgive
Don't forget

Dignity is earned
A lesson to be learned

[Chorus]

History that's past
The memories must last
The rattling of a cage
The morbid outrage

[Chorus]

Capacity to forgive
With our conscience we live

Forgive
Don't forget

Not to have died in vain
It can never happen again
With love we should embrace
To save the human race

[Chorus]

Time is said to heal
It's time to make that deal

Forgive
Don't forget

Forgiveness with provision
An end to all division
To bring a final end
And to remain a perfect friend

[Chorus]

[Chorus]




12. NEVER GOING TO STOP

You can never stop it
People try to knock it
We all love to rock it
Playing our music loud
Fun to listen to it
Lots of people do it
Get right down to it
Makes you feel so proud
It makes you feel so proud

Fill my soul with rock n roll
You gotta know it's never gonna stop
Never gonna stop
You know it's never
Never gonna
Never gonna stop

Feel the music in you
Means a whole lot to you
Always take it with you
Until the day you die
Until the day you die

Fill my soul with rock n roll
You gotta know it's never gonna stop
Never gonna stop
It's never gonna
Never gonna
Never gonna stop

Gotta listen to it
Gotta know you love it
Dedication proves it
It feeds your very soul
It feeds your very soul
You can never stop it
People try to knock it
We all love to rock it
And that's called rock n roll
That's called rock n roll

Fill my soul with rock n roll
You gotta know it's never gonna stop
Never gonna stop
Fill my soul with rock n roll
You gotta know it's never gonna stop
Never gonna stop
It's never gonna
Never gonna
Never gonna stop
Never gonna stop
It's never gonna
Never gonna
Never gonna stop
