DISC 1




1. 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.




2. METAL THRASHING MAD

Racing down the road
In a street machine of steel
Gears are jammed in full
I'm the madman at the wheel

Got my foot pinned to the floor
You can feel the engine roar
I got thunder in my hands
I'm metal thrashing mad

Driving like a maniac
Can't go any faster
Burning up the road
Headed for disaster




3. PANIC

Move it to the front
Reaching for the light
Loosing all control
Using all your might
Wheels are gonna spin
Asses gonna shake
We are gonna kick
Walls are gonna break

The road is hard
The fight is tough
Gonna play it fast
She likes it rough
With my strength
With all my soul
Makin' love
I'm losing control

Guts begin to churn
Minds are in haze
Hell is gonna burn
Axes in a blaze
Go in for the kill
Always on the run
Fighting for you life
The battles never won

Move it to the front
Reaching for the light
Losing all control
Using all your might
Wheels are gonna spin
Asses gonna shake
We are gonna kick
Walls are gonna break

Backs are turned
Rock and roll
To the wall
I'm losing my mind




4. THE ENEMY

The plans, of a race gone mad
A final solution to pass
All dreams are taken from their lives
No hope for the young all the old realize

He is but a solitary man
Whose prejudice will spread like a flame
Throughout the land
He's enslaving those who will be free
Etching his own name in black
For all of us to hear and see

A yellow star for those accused
There's no escape once you've been pinned
A relocation only to confuse
And all their propaganda to hide the awful truth

Screams - In the night
Scars so deep that they won't mend
Screams - In the night
In their souls they can't pretend

Six million lives on the hands of heads of state
They followed orders from above
Then one man when all was lost
He took his life, he'll never pay the price

They cannot hide or defend or disguise
For the truth is well known there'll be no alibis
Judgement will pass and their fates won't be kind
For the final solution was mass genocide




5. 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




6. MADHOUSE

White coats to bind me, out of control
I live alone inside my mind
World of confusion, air filled with noise
Who says that my life's such a crime?

Tapped, in this nightmare
I wish i'd wake
As my whole life begins to shake
four walls surround me
An empty gaze
I can't find my way out of this maze

Cause i don't care
Fall in, fall out
Gone without a doubt, help me
I can't take the blame
They don't feel the shame

It's a madhouse
Or so they claim
It's a madhouse
Oh, am i insane?

My fears behind me, what can i do
My dreams haunt my sleep at night
Oh no, won't learn their lesson, white fills my eyes
And only then they see the light




7. HOWLING FURIES

Abandon all hope for those who enter
Cause there ain't too much of that down here
A clouded mist in a darkened tunnel
And twisted screams are growing near

Now you're down here, you're gonna all stay
Cause the howling furies wanna come out and play
You're headed for doom, you'd better prepare
Cause in this part of the woods almost anything's fair, yeah

You lied and cheated in your miserable life
You met your end with a butcher knife
We laughed when you died, you sit in your grave
Just waiting to turn into satan's slave




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. ARMED AND DANGEROUS

Trapped up inside here, like lions in a cage
I've been a mark of injustice
Bound by these chains
Can't find a reason, i'm on my own
My destiny waits for a sign from me
I'm leaving alone

I'm out on my way now
It's been so many years
The chase is my lifeblood
I have no more fears

Fire, burns in my veins
Anger, shows on my face
Hatred, it poisons my soul
Look out, i'm about to explode

Evil ones try to destroy us
We're armed and prepared for attack
We'll take on the world with the rebellion
We're dangerous down to the last

Armed and dangerous

Am i evil, or am i insane
The lion inside of me, is no longer tame
A blade in my left, a gun in my right
To beat you within, an inch of your life




10. SABBATH, BLOODY SABBATH (BLACK SABBATH COVER)

You've seen life through distorted eyes
You know you had to learn
The execution of your mind
You really had to turn
The race is run the book is read
The end begins to show
The truth is out, the lies are old
But you don't want to know
Nobody will ever let you know
When you ask the reasons why
They just tell you that you're on your own
Fill your head all full of lies
The people who have crippled you
You want to see them burn
The gates of life have closed on you
And now there's just no return
You're wishing that the hands of doom
Could take your mind away
And you don't care if you don't see
Again the light of day
Nobody will ever let you know
When you ask the reasons why
They just tell you that you're on your own
Fill your head all full of lies
Where can you run to
What more can you do
No more tomorrow
Life is killing you
Dreams turn to nightmares
Heaven turns to hell
Burned out confusion
Nothing more to tell
Everything around you
What's it coming to
God knows as your dog knows
God blast all of you
Sabbath Bloody Sabbath
Nothing more to do
Living just for dying
Dying just for you




11. GOD SAVE THE QUEEN (THE SEX PISTOLS COVER)

God save the queen
The fascist regime
They made you a moron
Potential H-bomb

God save the queen
She ain't no human being
There is no future
In England's dreaming

Don't be told what you want
Don't be told what you need
There's no future, no future
No future for you

God save the queen
We mean it man
We love our queen
God saves

God save the queen
Cuz tourists are money
Our figure head
Is not what she seems

Oh god save history
God save your mad parade
Oh lord god have mercy
All crimes are paid

When there's no future
How can there be sin
We're the flowers in the dustbin
We're the poison in your human machine
We're the future, your future

God save the queen
We mean it man
We love our queen
God saves

God save the queen
We mean it man
And there is no future
In England's dreaming

No future, no future
No future for you
No future, no future
No future, no future for me

No future, no future
No future for you
No future, no future for you




12. GUNG-HO

Striking down the enemy
Fighting hand to hand
Troops are thrusting onwards
Time to take command
Ready to devour
On the attack
Bodies lie dismembered
Maimed, killed, and hacked

Draw fast, cut first
Live hard, die hard
Feel the point of the blade

Lunging like an animal, killing all in sight
Going for the throat, living for the fight
In a bath of bloodshed, mixing with the sweat
Crawling through the barbwire, put it to the test

Fight, fight fight
Fight, fight fighting the war
Gung-ho, gung-ho, gung-ho

Raging on the warpath, storming through the town
Blowing it to pieces, killing all around
Stand in our way, if you've got the balls
In a hail of bullets, your nailed to the wall

We wait out the day, we burn in the sun
We move in by night, and kill everyone
Show no emotions, have no regrets
Made to take pain, no fear of death




DISC 2




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
Aaaaaaaaaaaaaah, 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

6. 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
