Lyrics


1. W.T.Y.D.

Catch a shooting star, burn it to a crisp
Born into death, will you take the risk
See buckets and buckets, yeah, buckets of sin
You'll never end and can never begin

Welcome To Your Death

No forest of pleasure or fields of pain
High-rise at night, see the pavements of stain
A beckoning hand from those who were slain
Now you can sleep again

I take the night and I stretch it wide
And I see all, you hide, I died
So slip right in, sip the wine
The caution flashes but the water's fine




2. WICKED MYSTIC

All throughout the centuries, existing year to year
Lives on the powerful entity to thrive on pain and fear
A derelict of heavenly Gods, a feeling from within
Weakened minds are perfect prey, corrosion will begin

Some won't fight, the battle is forsaken
Show no might, the dark side has awakened

Even in the holiest the curious can be found
Their wonderment is dangerous as virtue is but bound
Moral codes broken
What's the sin that lurks within,
The burning emotion of hatred

Wicked Mystic

Hatred lurks in all of us, no one is exempt
It's proof of evil in our souls,
Is this the tempter's intent
A derelict of heavenly Gods, a feeling from within
Weak minds are perfect prey for corrosion to begin

Wicked Mystic
Wicked Mystic, Mystic




3. LIGEIA

I do not remember, where we did meet
Lengthened years have built my mind, memories undeep
Yet with instability, one thing stands too clear
Lady perfection, mystery, of whom I shed a tear

Airwoven divinity, mind, soul in victory
Cured of her malady, could this be my lost;
Ligeia

Sickness fell upon Ligeia, all knew she would die
Midnight came to lay her rest, farewell
Opium dreams, grief-stricken years, I took another bride
Replacing that which I did have, Ligeia why

Chronic disease, my luck cursed
My new wife has died

Coming from her bed of death, I thought I heard her cry
Could a corpse cold, stiff, sedate, sob in the bed it lie
Approaching her, I chilled to stone, for it did swiftly rise
I can never be mistaken, there were, they were,
Ligeia's eyes

Airwoven, divinity, mind, soul in victory
Cured of her malady, could this be my lost;
Ligeia
Airwoven divinity, tears shed, vitality
Cured of her malady, yes this is my lost;




4. ALISON HELL

Alice isn't it frightening
Alice aren't you scared
Alice isn't it wonderful
Living life afraid
Don't look around the corner
I might be lurking there
Under the bed at night
You're up till dawn again

Alison hell, your mind begins to fold
Alison hell, aren't you growing cold
Alison hell, you are looking blue
Alice in hell, what else can you do

I begin my rule, life hideous in your mind
Crying out, you've lost your doll
It isn't worth a dime

Alison hell, your mind begins to fold
Alison hell, aren't you growing cold
Alison hell, what are you looking for
Alice in hell, soon i close the door

Sitting in the corner, you are naked and alone
No one listened to your fears, you've created me

Alice isn't it frightening
Alice aren't you scared
I was killed at birth
I shoot this final scene
You're in the basement
You're trapped insanity

Alison hell, what were you looking for
Alison hell, as i close the door
Alison hell, here you shall dwell
Alison hell, alice dwells in hell

Alice
Alison
Alice
In hell

Goodbye




5. WORD SALAD

Closets of my mind destroyed, as I enter outward from a void
Corpses white have strapped me down,
I rise above then fall
Tactual hallucination, cockroaches infest the wall

Psychic pain on ice, I hurt
Devoid strength my life, inert
Anger fills they've shocked me back
White corpses turn to black
I run on psychic gasoline, my fuel shall burn you all

Chorus:
Word Salad, no ballad
Word Salad, no ballad

Diabolic plot, a toy, my brain the corpses to destroy
Prick my arm, injection fed, it's poison, I'm no fool
Tetanus shot, be sure it's not,
I wish I were at school
Closets of my mind destroyed, but I enter inward, black void
Hatred turns to apathy, led down this dark abyss,
Good night, farewell you pig from hell,
This world I shall not miss

Word Salad, no ballad
Word Salad

Woken up from death, nausea
Catatonic stupor, anoxia
Remaining still I hold onto a sense of permanence
Negativistic fear of pain, algophobic life sentence
Moral, physical decay, hatred withered away
Scourge of God he makes me pay, I shall not live or die
Vegetative judgment passed, my only thought to cry

7. THE FUN PALACE

Welcome, I invite you off to the other world
You'll have to face this house of no escape
Confront the past, in this psychic house of horrors
I lead you up the path you'll take

Panic, your conscience lied
Trapped inside
Panic, your ultimate nightmare
Welcome to the fun palace

Panic, just try to scream
It's only a dream
Panic, your ultimate nightmare
Welcome to the palace

Tonight you'll be tried, I invoke the memories
The guilt to be driven from this unconscious mind
Young lives that you've denied, behold their faces
Innocence cut to pieces just look around

Look at the fun and games that you've taken away
Confess!
Dreams of growing up have been destroyed
Because of you!

Farewell, I impel you back to your other world
You'll have to face your every sin
Take this a painful bounty, representing me
The keeper of the palace and the secrets held within

Goodbye, from the fun palace




8. NEVER NEVERLAND

My room is full of toys and things
But filled with nothing new
Just me and Clare alone in this
Enchanted, placid room
It's Saturday and no more school
There hasn't been for years
She says we're here forever
'Til eternity

Our solitude has been disturbed
Clare hold on, don't flee
With open arms they call my name
"Oh won't you come with me?"

Get back, back!
Just leave us all alone
Take that and that!
I'll break every bone

Get back, back!
Just leave us all alone
Take that and that!
I'll break every bone

Blacking out, poisoned
Colors now decay
Drifting off to never, neverland
Please don't take me away
To never, neverland,
No, to the neverland!

Time has passed and now I see
What I've lived through
I've got no fears that match the hate
That came from you
It's Saturday I've things to do
I wish you all the best
Now I leave your placid room
Enjoy eternal rest




9. I AM IN COMMAND

No defense, enemy attack
I'm fighting for my life
They'll slice you to ribbons, you lose all inhibitions
I laugh at the anti-christ
Power of position, deploying ammunition
I'm free from your holy beliefs
Your pockets are bled, to Christ you're wed
Gaze at the lost sheep

I am in command
I am in command
I stand in command

All the taking, eyes are waking
To your mass control
Power fades, drunken ways
Creating your own hellhole
Your God cast out, my armaments shout
Your faith is soon null and void
Where's God, paid the church of fraud
Now heaven's left you unemployed

Moans of the meek, I'm strong, they're weak
I triumph as never before
Stand beside, be strong, take pride
Truth comes from the core
My war is fought by those I have taught
And those pledged to be free
I am here in alliance and stand in defiance
Of the church's almighty greed




10. STONEWALL

Stonewall - go to bat
Unless you want to live like that
Stonewall - can't we see
We're our own worst enemy

A land said to have all, wealth in land, in man
Qualities soon to exhaust as man's greed poisons the land
Streams, once fresh,
Were centers of life for so many a creature
Beauty without a defense, polluted, never to replenish

Collage, blue and green, seen as golden industrial sites
Smudge as toxic pollutants destroy her remaining rights
The power of corporations, spewing chemicals into the air
Fines are imposed to discourage,
But what's a dime to a millionaire

It's time to listen, and see the signs
It's time to listen, and hear her cries

The one that gave us life is being burned to the raw
Reaping unprotected riches,
Human nature's self-destructing flaw
The power of corporations, spewing chemicals into the air
Fines are imposed to discourage,
But what's a dime to a millionaire




11. ROAD TO RUIN

No control tonight, the lights are going dim
The floor begins to tilt, it's blurring to a spin
Just let me find my keys, "look down below"
Fresh air is all I need, then I'll go

Leading up the road to ruin
You're full of alcoholic speed
Leading up the road to ruin
No last chance, don't bother to plead

High, over the limit, got to take it slow
Concentrate, kill the radio
It's not the first time, it'll be the last
I've said that before, in the past

Speed, I've got to make it home
Not too far to go, you're getting near
Just down the block, there's nothing left to fear
Carefree, on top of the world, feeling power
Impaired security at ninety miles an hour




12. SIXES AND SEVENS

Disillusioned, self-confustion
Trying to make it through another day
What's it all for, when does it end
There must be another way

Woven webs of intricacy
A life of nothing new
No one here to understand
Pressure's crushing you

Sixes and sevens
Disorder battles control
Sixes and sevens
Crisis overflow

Aggravation, deep frustration
I know what I want to do
Motivation is a problem
When it's driven out of you

Emotion, commontion's
Filling up the brain
Direction's null and void
Another drink dilutes the pain

Sixes and sevens
Disorder battles control
Sixes and sevens
Crisis overflow

Sinking fast
Will it last
At sixes and sevens

Pulling through from yesterday
Another day is done
Determination
Self confidence has won

Woven webs of intricacy
Life is full of stress
That can only hinder
New desire to progress

Sixes and sevens
Disorder battles control
Sixes and sevens
Crisis overflow

Sinking fast
Will it last
At sixes and sevens

14. LIKE WIRE

Well if you're lookin' for trouble
I'm the man to see
If you're lookin' for satisfaction
I'm satisfaction guaranteed
I'm as cool as a body on ice
Or hotter than a rollin' dice
Send you to heaven
Take you to hell
I ain't foolin'
Can't you tell

I'm a live wire, I'm a live wire, I'm a live wire
Gonna set this town on fire

Well if you need some lovin'
And if you need some man
You've got the phone and the number
And I got no future plans
Oh come on honey you got nothin' to lose
You got the thirst 'n I got the booze
Give you an inch
Take you a mile
I wanna make you smile

I'm a live wire, Live Wire,I'm a live wire, live wire
I'm a live wire, live wire
Holy smoke and sweet desire

Like a hot rod baby?
Oh stick this in your fuse box

Cooler than a body on ice
Hotter than a rollin' dice
Wilder than a drunken fight
You're gonna burn tonight

I'm a live wire, live wire
I'm a live wire, live wire
I'm a live wire, live wire
And I'm gonna set this town on fire
