1. AMONG THE LIVING

Disease, Disease
Spreading the disease
With some help from Captain Trips
He'll bring the world down to his knees
Power, yes Power
He'll show them all his power
It pulses through his ice cold blood
A whole world to devour

He's seeing, He's calling
His legacy, He's spawning
He's coming, corrupting
Among the living

Murder, Murder
Commit cold blooded murder
Like Nazis during World War Two
They only follow orders
Hatred, Hatred
A crucifix is your bed
Once he turns his eye on you
You'd be better off dead

I am the walkin' dude
I can see all the world
Twist your minds with fear
I'm the man with power
Among the living
Follow me or die

Man, fights Man
Divided they can't stand
United they can battle back
And make him force his hand
Fear, yes Fear
His end is growing near
He didn't count on man's good faith
And their will to persevere

Fire, hot Fire
Purge the world with fire
Damnation is the price he'll pay
For an evil man's desire
Good, vs. Evil
The stand to vanquish evil
Man can only live one way
That place right in the middle

Among




2. CAUGHT IN A MOSH

Why don't you listen to me when I try to talkto you
Stop thinking of yourself, for just a second fool
Shut up, shut up, I don't wanna hear your mouth
Your mather made a monster,
Now get the hell out of my house

Can't stand it for another day
I ain't gonna live my life this way
Cold sweat, my fists are clenching
Stomp, stomp, stomp, the idiot convention

Which one of these words don't you understand ?
Talking to you, is like clapping with one hand

What is it ? - Caught in a mosh
What is it ? - Caught in a mosh
What is it ? - Caught in a mosh
What is it ? - Caught in a mosh

Don't tell me how to do my job
There's the door, your name's on the knob
You're always in the way, like a beast on my back
Were you dropped as a baby, cause brains you lack

Think - before you speak
Or suffer, for your words
Learn, to give respect
that others, give to you
Aaaaaaaah, The best you can do

Hey Man
I'm trying to reason but you don't understand
Talking in circles, we'll never get it straight
Just you and me in our theatre of hate




3. A.I.R.

Young and free, something you'll never be
A childhood's end, it's lunacy
Pure dictation, they don't listen
And you're just waiting for what you're missing

Welcome to your nightmare
You just can't walk away
It's time for you, to choose, your fate
You just can't let it lay
Welcome to your nightmare
Your whole life's on the way
Today

You're no good, misunderstood, a.i.r.
All their hopes and visions of what they want you to be
Crucial times, made up minds, a.i.r.
So high and mighty, though much too blind too see

Who are you gonna live your life for?
Conformity will trap you like a locked door
Independence means owning your decision's
Authority will put your soul in prison

Fight, go insane, there's no one else to blame
Stop, their influence, you can't give them a chance
Break, right through the wall, that separates us all
Start, your second life, without their hands in sight

You got your pride you got your visions
Don't subside, don't ever give in
Don't compromise just keep on grinning
The games they play you just keep on winning
Keep on winning, a.i.r.




4. ANTISOCIAL

You're a train ride to no importance
You're in love with hell existence
Money is all that you desire
Why don't you pack it in and retire
It's common nature you can't fool me
I'm just the money that you can't let free
Rainy day genius clouds your mind
Don't you realize the blind lead the blind

You're anti, you're antisocial

Oh mister time will you ever unwind
Or just rebuild a new design
Your claim to fame is law and order
The rich get rich, the poor get poor
You put a price tag on what you see
This one's for you, that's for me
If that's winning I'd rather lose
Why don't you listen to my senseless views

You're anti, you're antisocial
How do you feel?

You're a train ride to no importance
You're in love with hell existence
Money is all that you desire
Why don't you pack it in and retire
It's common nature you can't fool me
I'm just the money that you can't let free
Rainy day genius clouds your mind
Don't you realize the blind lead the blind

You're anti, you're antisocial

Antisocial....




5. LONE JUSTICE

There's two kinds, of people in the world
The outlaws, and the lawmen that prevail
The bounty hunter's job is on the wrong side of the law
Intentions, of the truth and nothing more

Burn'em, clear the streets as he rides into the town
Cause the nameless one's gonna have some fun
He's gonna bring an outlaw down
Wasted, it's over quick he's nailed 'em three for three
Then he with his squint-eyed grin and stubbled chin
He rides through history
The jury, in his mind the choices weigh
The trials, if you're gulity you're his prey
No judgement otherwise can change the lust
That's in his eyes
The sentence, will be carried out in stride

No name, like a shadow on a moonies night
Real game, he'll be there to uphold
Justice, law and order
And you'll pay, the highest fee
When the gunslinger takes his piece

The money, it's the price you have to pay
When he calls, drop your eyes and look away
The man has taken life to balance scales of wrong and right
Existence, each day a moral fight.




6. EFILNIKUFESIN (N.F.L.)

It started back in high-school
So cool, king of the scene
You found that making people laugh
Was more than just a dream
The public took right to you
Like flies to a pile of shit
So funny and smart so talented
But success just couldn't fit

Wasting your life
No future is bright
Dancing on your grave
Living like a slave, someone should've said...

N.F.L., Efilnikufesin
N.F.L.
N.F.L., Efilnikufesin
N.F.L.
Wake up dead, in a plywood bed six feet from the
rest of your life
And when you couldn't see your own dependency
N.F.L., Nice Fuckin' Life !

The whole world is your playground
Yet you can't find your niche
Your only friends it helps you through
Helps you dig your daily ditch
The bottom line can't touch you
Cause you're above the rest
But your little friend's the enemy
And the bottom line is death

You lived a life of excess
Goddmann shame it's such a waste
Just one too many cookies
From the batch no one should taste
Yet his memory still stays with us
Cause watching him was fun
Too bad things weren't different
Who knows what he'd have done




7. DEATHRIDER

Riding hard, high in the saddle
Winged steed of unwearing flight
Sweeping through air just like fire
Swift of the foot, great of might

Hear the screams
Feel the bite
We ride with death
Tonight

Here it comes
You better hide
Shoot the guns
You're gonna die

Conquering all, spreading terror
Hoofs gallop in thunderous pound
Devouring the souls of the wretched
Trampling them down to the ground

Gripping the reins of destruction
Made of steel on his hands
Holder of forces immortal
Slaughtering all in his path




8. MEDUSA

Endless curse, blood runs cold
Evil stare, will turn your flesh to stone
Land of doom, world of sin
All subside, don't venture near
The island where she lives
Oh, she'll suck you in

Destroyer of life, demon
Oh i'm ready to strike, gorgon

Serpents bride, the end awaits
Human prey, no swords or armor
Shield you from your fate
Hey you, you can't escape
Wicked smile, full of lies
Head of snakes, approch her cave
But don't look in her eyes
Oh, her eyes

Sieze, appease, deceive, die

Medusa, she's staring at you
Medusa, with her eyes

Evil witch, cast her spell, seducing you
She'll take you to the very depths of hell
Cannot move, no eyes to see, a statue now
For all eternity medusa laughs at you
And you're her slave

Medusa, she's staring at you
Medusa, with her eyes
Medusa, oh she's cold




9. IN MY WORLD

They're gonna put me in jail?
Man, i'm already in jail
Don't they know that my life
Is just one big cell
I'll bite the hand that feeds me
And i could give a damn if that hand needs me
Why can't you leave me alone?
A lie may fool someone else
But it tells you the truth
You're weak, just another clone

I just want my life
To do whatever i like
Yeah, it's a selfish need
To have no responsibility
So i'll say what i'm gonna say
'Cause i'm going to hell anyway
I'd rather be alone
In my world
I'm not afraid
I am not afraid
Nothing touches me I'm a walking razor blade

Face the face of fear
Face the face of death
Laugh when others tear
Hate when others laugh
In my world it's cold
My defense is like stone
No one gets inside, 'cause
In my world i'm home
In my world i loathe

And you'll always pay a toll
No one gets inside, 'cause
In my world i'm home
An adult at thirteen
My childhood was a dream
A full clout nightmare, a sight unseen
My greatest fear as a kid
One which i always kept hid
Was to come home from school
And find my mother dead

Face the face of fear
Face the face of death
Laugh when others tear
Hate when others laugh
In my world it's cold
My defense is like stone
No one gets inside, 'cause
In my world i'm home
In my world i loathe
And you'll always pay a toll
No one gets inside, 'cause
In my world i'm home
Home!!!




10. INDIANS

We all see black and white
When it comes to someone else's fight
No one ever gets involved
Apathy can never solve

Forced Out - Brave and mighty
Stolen Land - They can't fight it
Hold On - To pride and tradition
Even though they know how much
Their lives are really missin'
We're Dissin' Them ...

On reservation
A hopeless situation

Respect is something that you earn
Our Indian brother's getting burned
Original American
Turned into, second class citizen

Cry for the Indians
Die for the Indians
Cry for the Indians
Cry, Cry, Cry for the Indians

Love the land and fellow man
Peace is what we strive to have
Some folks have none of this
Hatred and prejudice

Territory, It's just the body of the nation
The people that inhabit it make its configuration
Prejudice, Something we all can do without
Cause a flag of many colors is what this land's all about




11. TIME

I got so much trouble on my mind
Paranoia time
I'm running out of life
Clockwise and the seconds tick away
Each line that cuts my face
Cut as each hand moves into place

Paranoia
Amped and wired

Bile black the thoughts that run my head
There's so much to be said
They're so much living dead
Walking corpses shambling through life
With nothing in their sight
Dance on their bones, step in and fight

Paranoia
Amped and wired

Life and death are fighting for my time
I can't seem to find the time
I want what's mine
Time through the clock just keeps talking
It just walks any damn place
It feels like walkin'
My mind keeps thinking
Clockwise as the seconds tick away
I make my move today
Time and life
Life and time
To have and hold
And sometimes find
It isn't mine, it isn't yours
Man to man I'll fight you for
Time and life
Life and time
One day i'll get what's mine
Through the persistence of time
Life and death as words they don't mean shit
It's what you do with it
And how you live with it
Raging like a bull inside a cage
Just give me a stage
Where this bull can rage

Paranoia's got no hold on me,
Time don't have nothing
To do with how high you can,
Time don't got nothing
To do with how high you can count




12. BE ALL, END ALL

Yes, no, yes, no
Not, another word
You'll know what to do
Right!
In your face they see it
In their face you...
Take it
Make up their minds
Aggression turns the screws
Fight!
Take your piece and hold it
Make your piece and...
Stand up, you know what it means
Wake up, time to live your dreams

Down by,
Law and they can't hold you
Dictate and control you
Hold onto your ideas
Down by,
Law and no one owns you
And all the shit they've thrown you
Pay back is a real bitch

Nothing's ever easy when you do it yourself
All you can do is try
Life's not unfair, life's just life
Death not suicide

Be all, and you'll be the end all
Life can be a real ball
State of mind
Euphoria

Think,
On your feet, and stay one step ahead
Break
Take your brain and use it
Take their mind and...
Change,
An attitude, like you'd change your shorts
Right!
In your face thay see it
In their face you...
Stand up, you know what it means
Wake up, time to live your dreams

Down by,
Law and they can't hold you
Dictate and control you
Hold onto your ideas

Down by,
Law and no one owns you
And all the shit they've thrown you
Pay back is a real bitch

Nothing's ever easy when you do it yourself
All you can do is try
Life's not unfair, life's just life
Death not suicide

Be all, and you'll be the end all
Life can be a real ball
State of mind
Euphoria

Always taking, always faking
Ignorance is so frustrating
Always taking, always faking
Ignorance is,
No way, no way, no way, no way out!




13. I AM THE LAW

Fifteen years in the academy
He was like no cadet they'd ever seen
A man so hard, his veins bleed ice
And when he speaks he never says it twice
They call him Judge, his last name is Dredd
So break the law, and you may wind up dead
Truth and justice are what he's fighting for
Judge Dredd the man, he is the law
Drokk It

With his gun and bike he rules the streets
And every perp he meets will taste defeat
Not even Death can overcome his might
Cause Dredd and Anderson, they won the fight
When the Sov's started the Apocalypse war
And Mega-city was bombed to the floor
Dredd resisted, and the judges fought back
And crushed the Sov's with their counter-attack
Drokk It

Respect the badge - he earned it with his blood
Fear the gun - your sentence may be death
because ...

I Am The Law
And you won't fuck around no more - I Am The Law
I judge the rich, I judge the poor - I Am The Law
Commit a crime I'll lock the door - I Am The Law
Because in Mega-City ...
I Am The Law

In the cursed earth where mutants dwell
There is no law, it's just a living hell
Anarchy and chaos as the blood runs red
But this would change if it was up to Dredd
The book of law is the bible to him
And any crime committed is a sin
He keeps the peace whith his law-giver
Judge, jury, and executioner
Drokk It

Crime - the ultimate sin
Your Iso-Cube is waiting when he brings you in
Law - it's what he stands for
Crime's his only enemy and he's going to war
