1. WEE BEASTIE

(Instrumental)




2. THE BEAST

I walked the distant road to find the thing that I was Missing
I traveled miles away from home
I didn't understand the helpless tale that I was living
I didn't know how far to run

I've desecrated memories and love given so freely
Abandoned those I left behind
They didn't understand the reason why I have to leave them
It wasn't me they'd want to find

The morning sun will expose the remains of everything I've Done

I tried to let the urges pass and fade
I wanted all the lies to be set free
I couldn't fix the way I had been made
So, I, tucked away the hidden beast in me

They always call the name of the person that I wasn't
They think that I'm the same thing as I was when I was Killing
That it's as simple as it seems

They don't understand that it controls the darkest parts of Me

I tried to let the urges pass and fade
I wanted all the lies to be set free
I couldn't fix the way I had been made
But, I, can't control the vicious beast in me

Chain my throat with rusted metal
Torment me with human hell
On my flesh your rage will feast
And finally you will know the beast

I tried to let the urges pass and fade
I wanted all the lies to be set free
I couldn't fix the way I had been made
But, I, can't control the vicious beast in me

You want let the urges pass and fade
You want to blame the violence on me
You try to fight the way you have been made
But, the truth is that the beast will set you free




3. OF WOOD AND STEEL

There once was a tree
In time gone before us
Content to live his days

Until one the day
Man entered the forest
And dragged the tree away

They shaved him down into a pole
And armed the wood with steel
They put him in the hands of someone
Pale and thin with fear

The tree was fashioned into
Many weapons for the brave
They carried him as banners
Pikes and arrows, bows and staves

They fought together in the war
They knew that someday, they'd be free
They knew not what they all fought for
But they knew that they needed the trees

Their weapons couldn't take the
Beating that their rivals gave
Their shields were splintered down
Despite the thousand arrows made

Their bodies lay against the fields
Their blood, dyed it red
The bitter howl of death was all
That mourned the fallen dead

They fought together in the war
They knew that now they could be free
They understood what they died for
The men, the steel, and the trees

The battle won, they lay their dead to rest
In the ground
They fashioned graves for them from all the
Weapons that they found

With nature at their side
None of their men died in vain
Beneath the ground with them
The tree could feel his roots again

They fought together in the war
They knew that now they could be free
They understood what they died for
The men, the steel, and the trees




4. MY NAME IS DOOM (THE DOCTOR IS IN)

Mother save your many tears
I have nothing for your life
You have suffered for your craft
And I have build a world from strife

People say so much of me
People think that I can change
They say that I am mad, they say that I am cruel
And cower when I say

My name is doom
For man kind to beware.
Doom
Lord of land, sea, and air
Doom
Master, for all to serve
Inflicter of the fate that you deserve

I can rule the world and the universe
Purely with my godly might
I am lord of all I see
King by genius' right

I rule across the land
With perfect armored hands

Pain is just like love, like compassion
It is a thing for lesser man
Whatever you see in me - is not fear
My will shall bring you to the end

I am too far advanced
For your pathetic ants

Now let man-kind beware
I am no longer amused
Before this day is ended
Mankind shall kneel and grovel
Before my armored feet

My name is doom
Too totally supreme
Doom
As he shall ever be
Doom
Who's wrath you have incurred
Doom
He who shall rule the world

I am no common murderer of men
There is no pleasure just to slay
My strength is equaled by majesty
Too great for mortal words to say

Your helpless fools will flee
Before the greatness that is me

You tremble on the ground
You shake amidst my hell
I am more powerful than you can understand
And you shall serve me well

My name is doom
Doom

Now you must be made aware
I am a man of my word
Everything that I have promised
I'll deliver
Until this plague of man is cured

My name is doom
And I will cleanse the land
Doom
He of the metal hands
Doom
Who's right you will not deny
Doom
You will kneel, or you DIE

Behind the mask, I am your god
You can hide 'till you die
I will rule, with an iron fist
my name in all your cries

My name is doom




5. FLESH AND BLOOD

Stillness is gone
The stench becomes deadly
Disorder poisons the fast crawling rats

Squeeze out the life, no one will know you're gone

September dawn
Crying for brightness
Keep up the pace or you'll die with the rest

Just when you think you've seen all the darkest days

Don't be afraid
Your past is gone
Wait and see

Flesh and blood
They're gone in thee blink of an eye
Tired and fading fast
Still waters flow
Through the depth of the sin that's inside
Next time we'll know

Can't stop a cell
From growing inside you
Turning your back won't change anything

Ready to make a clean break for another time

Buzzling like flies
Around all the faces
Sit and just look at the world passing by

Can't find the words to a story that must be told

Don't be afraid
Your past is gone
Just wait and see

Flesh and blood
They're gone in thee blink of an eye
Tired and fading fast
Still waters flow
Through the depth of the sin that's inside
Next time we'll know

It's far enough
The well will consume you
Keep to yourself, there's nowhere to run

Ups and downs will make their way some how

Experiment
Extracion of matter
Make sure the body is where it belongs

Hope will be dead is the grave is bare

Don't be afraid
Your past is gone
Just wait and see

Flesh and blood
They're gone in thee blink of an eye
Tired and fading fast
Still waters flow
Through the depth of the sin that's inside
Next time we'll know




6. BLOOD VOMIT

The crimes of man are multiplied through life and love and Pain
I can find them in your eyes and relive them again
You don't understand the hatred I keep in my head
I will torment you until you wish that you were dead

Don't push me too far
Just stay where you are
Cruel pain wash like a flood
I'll make you vomit blood

All the pleading that you cry is lost within my laugh
I'm too busy contemplating all the hate I have
You can try to run and hide, but I will find you still
If none of them could run from me, what makes you think you Will?

Don't push me too far
Just stay where you are
Cruel pain, wash like a flood
I'll punch out all your blood

Feel! My disgust
Human lust
Human dread
Vomit red

Once I find that you're alone, I'll give you what is due
Nothing that you say to me will make me pity you
Tears will mingle with the blood I'll tear out of your eyes
One for every single of your sick and putrid lies

Don't push me too far
Just saty where you are
Cruel pain wash like a flood
I'll make you vomit blood

I'll punch you out all your blood!




7. DEVIL IN DISGUISE

Come into my web and I will tell you
The secrets behind immortality
I am more than just a naughty vision
I am everything that you need

I'm not a lie
Or a fairy tale
I exist inside of you and your own hell
If you listen, my advice is clear
I'm always there to whisper in your ear

Evil is as good as you can make it
Especially when labeled differently
I grow ever stronger when they mask it
As following their human destiny

I'm not a lie
Or a fairy tale
I exist inside of you and your own hell
If you listen, my advice is clear
I'm always there to whisper in your ear

I adore the weak who spend their lifetimes
Who try to justify their every sin
They admit to nothing, and I love it
When they see the hell that they're in

So rest your hand in mind, and let me lead you
I can make you feel like you are whole
I can give you everything you yearn of
And all I ask you is for your soul

I'm not a lie
Or a fairy tale
I exist inside of you and your own hell
If you listen, my advice is clear
I'm always there to whisper in your ear




8. JUST ANOTHER FOOL

Sneakin' through the darkness
Lookin' to the sky
Reachin' for tomorrow
It's crashin' in your eye

Signals crossed again
Tryin' to keep ahead
Runnin' from the fury
Don't remember what you said

When you hear that man knockin' at your door
Do you run and hide in a fit of shame
Is there time to drag yourself across the floor
Just another fool by a different name

Do you wish for something new
Do you like where you are
Do you want the power
Empty dreams of going far

Fix your sight on safety
Send a prayer out tonight
You can say that it's okay
But you'll kiss it all goodbye

When you hear that man knockin' at your door
Do you run and hide in a fit of shame
Is there time to drag yourself across the floor
Just another fool by a different name

When you make it to the end
Face to face with demise
Never ride another coattail
Never answer for your lies

No one sees you fight
And no one hears you cry
No one cares if you forget the past
It's too late when you die

When you hear that man knockin' at your door
Do you run and hide in a fit of shame
Is there time to drag yourself across the floor
Just another fool by a different name




9. THE BURIED TRUTH

What's the going price
For following the footsteps
Of those who only see in shades of white

Choose your path of hate
Make sure you do your part
It's life or death or maybe wrong from right

The ides of march become you
Supremacy once more
Walk like roman warriors of old

Six shots from your weapon
Settle your bloody score
Then run just like a rat into the cold

Criminals, call your shot
Judgement passed, make your plot
Healing hands, go on being strong
Your uphill fight is long

Take your sacred stand
Defend your sacred cause
Life through tainted eyes is all you see

Single fire trigger
But you said it got away
Eleven years and then you're walking free

Do you see the silhouette
In the window
He's looking at your sad pathetic face

He shows no expression
He lifts a steady hand
And points a ghostly finger at your face

Criminals, call your shot
Judgement passed, make your plot
Healing hands, go on being strong
Your uphill fight is long

I hear the call of many lost souls
Trying to harvest buried truth
Voiceless under the frozen winter ground
Is there nothing we can do
