Slave tracks

Lyrics

1. SLAVE

I am no one
But not like you
I will burn too
Blinded by the night time
Out on your play
Running the faith
Shining the fate
Blind eye no mind

What you gonna do to me and what you gonna say to me
I don't wanna hear about all your drama mishap
Running down the willing scenes and I won't suck on
your disease
I don't need no riot gear to roll into the heaven

I am no one
Tied to you
Shine onto me
Blind mind never see
Your thoughts are the whore
Bought what was said
Tied to what you want
To what you want

Bound to what you got to run away and look around
To the money girls running down in your trees
Bound to what you get when you walk around you
Walk around you... Walk around you... Walk around you
Walk around you... Walk around you
It never sees
It never cease
Never cease

Are you too drag? Are you too bad? Gone alone
Gone emblazed gone and glazed are you there?
No one no one ever said
You'll never understand you're blind and all alone
You'll never understand you're blind and all alone




2. FREAK DOWN

Right on down the line
I'm working all the time
I got the 9 to 5
Blues back baby on genocide

Got no time
For conversation
Planet lies
In hesitation
Days have
Gone by
My days have all
Faded away

I got no time to stand in line
One decision and to stick & ride
Run the crime run the crime
On time yeah

In my house
I live alone
In my world
I live alone
Days have
Gone by
My days have
All faded away
I could have been
I had a chance
I'm looking back
At my past
It's too late
For me now
Hey freak
Take back
Turn it down




3. BLEED TO KNOW

Year 2000 here's the reason
Tie me up in convalesence
I'm a user non chemical
Tie me up in style suits you

I'm unwanted and I'm unneeded
Line me up and I will believe it
Bend over so we can use you
Just to abuse you we're gonna use it again

I bleed to know
Bleed to know
On my hands and knees
Gonna feed and sow
Bleed to know
Bleed to know
These hands and knees
Will use you again

Year 2000 and I'm still waiting
On broken knees I am waiting
On broken knees feed me your heart
On broken knees tear me apart

I bleed to know
Bleed to know
On my hands and knees
Gonna feed and sow
Bleed to know
Bleed to know
On hands and knees
Use you

Get down on the ground
You wanna feed what's after
Go down Go down

I am the wanted and I'm the needed
Tie 'em up and let me lead 'em
Line 'em up and fire
Line up and fire




4. L.A. DECORUM

Woman speaking on an Answerphone:
"I'm sorry Sarah, with your little nose down and your little braided hair, Gail
From Cal state... Didn't you go to Cal state, Gail?
Sarah, Hannah and Robert. What did he say? Sarah, Miles and Robert Goldsmith.
If I left 4 years ago Sarah may come visit me."

Answerphone voice: "10:51 am, tuesday".

A different woman (not on an answerphone, just sampled from something...):
"I don't think justice is Jesus Christ dying on the cross
Jesus Christ died with a hard on
He died with a beautiful smile on his face
Because of the total climax of dying, it's all music, all sound, all beauty, all colour, all at once".




5. OPERATE

Tortured and I am betrayed
I am elusive and I will be unheard
I'll take you and I'll play with you
Stand in lines rape you

I want to destroy you
I want to rape and kill you
Operation operation
Operation on the wasteland

No rights and no one ever tells
I will sedate you
And rape your children now

I want to destroy you
I want to rape and fuck you
Operation operation
Operation on the wasteland




6. LIKE YOU BURN

I'm coming too But not going out
I'm burning too across this great dimension

Changing rearranging every single day
Lurking for a future in anger and dismay
Hearts stop, stop return in the fields
Like you burn

Coming to attention in our heartland
Staggers a gun turned into redemption

Working for a living I got something to say
Churning out for impact burning out today
Soon the streets are gonna be running red
From the blood of your father's head
I can't call can't return I never will
Like you burn

Cold broken days warned by your touch
I can't believe in detection
Can't believe your touch
Strange affliction coming today
I kinda like it better that way
Soon the streets are gonna be running red
From the blood of your father's head
I can't stop, can't return I never will
Like you burn

You don't know, you can't see
You can't feel, you can't speak
You can't hear, you don't know
You can't see, you can't feel
You can't speak the unspeakable truth
You can't speak the unspeakable truth
You can't speak the unspeakable truth
You can't speak the unspeakable truth
Like you burn

You can't speak the unspeakable truth
Like you burn




7. SAFETY IN SUICIDE

A man's voice:
"When you clean up a city you kill it
There's no place to go in the hollywood hills now
It's dead...
It stinks of death...
The puritans, the christians, they've cleaned it up, they've dried it up
Like no rose will ever grow..."

Shoot free sentry shoot to wind
As the targets start to rise
Come on now we cannot pretend
That we are lovers anymore

Kill God kill Jesus
Kill one another for the weekends
Safe and sound my wrists are itching
These hands no good never could do no good
Take me
Take me
Take me

Safety in suicide
The climb the climb to keep you all alive
And I want to die again

Shoot free shoot this maker
The raptor seeds the raper
Hey chief immoralize
Come on now we cannot pretend
That we are lovers that we are givers

Take me
Take me
Take me

Safety in suicide
The climb the climb to keep you all alive
And I want to die again
I want to die again
And I want to die again




8. MONKEY

Black sheep cum rising
All together we're gonna get an ending
Fly heap reap season
Wrapped arms embracing no reason

It was the right time of the law
On the wrong side of the track
It wasn't what? The laughter
Has it got to you sin

Like the time before mining
On the sores of 1964
It was the right time of the law
On the wrong side of the track
You never were my friend
It's like a curse and you know
When the children grow up
They will never have to sow
You teach what is taught
But the lessons that you learn
Tear you apart

When the money grows
You too will shine
When the fortune grows
Who's gonna rise

Do you know the name?
When you're on the fame?
Do you know the name?
When your names in lights
Black sheep cum rising
All together we're gonna get an ending
Black sheep what do you know?
What do you?

Swinging around
Like a monkey in a fucking zoo
You see that money
Grow money's gonna bury you
You're on the rise again you're only after
The run is after you it's all to sin

Do you know the name
When you're on fame
What do you know
What do you know
What do you
What do you
Why do you
Why do you

Swinging around
Like a monkey in a fucking zoo
You see that money grow
Money's gonna fuck you son




9. BURNING RUBBER (TEENAGE JESUS AND THE JERKS COVER)

The leaves are dead
The door's always closed
The garbage screams at my feet
I want to be alone

The sand has washed away
The sea it must have ate it
The cement glows grey
And I begin to like it

The dishes are cracked
The forks are plastic
The food is in cellophane
And I puke elastic




10. VALLEY OF THE DOGS

Bed and a home
Dead trapped on the window lies
Know where to hide tonight?

The faces empty you were never alive
Touch too much to never know
You wanna lick some alcohol from the flies

Like a burning child I'll burn for you
And like a mourning child I'll die for you
But I will never

In the valley of the dogs
Are we crawling babies
In the valley of the dogs
Crawling
We can turn forever now
We can burn forever now

Saw you turning waving ready to spill
Know where they belong
Hey! Do you know the bombs are out
It's the way you stalk the way you move
The way things keep going down
The ways you used to in the bar

Like a burning child I'll burn for you
Like a burning baby too like a burning child
Burnt to tell all the dreams that I set fire to

In the valley of the dogs
And all the dreams that I set fire to
In the valley of the dogs
Crawling
We can turn forever now
We can burn forever now
Riot... Riot... Riot...
In the valley of the dogs
Riot... Riot... Riot...
In the valley of the dogs
Gonna turn out gonna turn them out
Gonna move on murder turn it out
Gonna turn out gonna turn them out
Kill the dogs tonight
Will it
Turn me




11. SHUT UP!

I'm the man downtown
South Central L.A.
Time to roll now
Got the cause got no goods
Shotgun on my side
Not too much to bleed
Big time big man
Got my gun
Got my plan

I'm past the central
Downtown L.A.
Tidal wave excursion
Goddamn that scene
Too much color too many faces
Too many words
Goddamn their places

My father's not in heaven
My mother's not the same
Goddamn this town took centuries
Separate downtown in my way

Keep it down
Just keep it down
You gotta keep it down
Keep quiet now
Keep it down
Gotta keep it down
Just shut up
Keep it

My father
My father
My father
My father
My mother
My murder
Just keep it down
Keep it down




12. CELEBRATE ANNHILATION

Death wrapped its arms around you
No not the way they used to
Let them in
I ain't gonna let you in
I ain't gonna let you in
My tracks are what you want

Decayed myself It's hard to control
Left your side I start to erode
Who got to be the slave
I must destroy what I made
I must destroy what I made

It's a
Celebration
Annihilation
In this
Celebration
Annihilation

Arm yourself and don't hesitate
Arm yourself and don't hesitate

I walk around you everyday
I'm in around you in every way
Who got to be the slave
I must destroy what I've made
I must destroy what I've made

It's a
Celebration
Annihilation
It's a
Celebration
Annihilation

Bed... Red... Bed... Found...
King... King... King... King...

You're crowned

17. COMA AMERICA (HOME DEMO)

Cut off!
Cut off!

This is for the suffer
This is for the proof
This is for the lover soaking in the truth
This is for the Liar
This is for the dream
This is for America burning at the seas

Cut off!
Cut off!
Cut off!
Cut off!

This is for the treason
This is for the speed
All the money cumming in the mouths of the meek
This is for the president
This is for the bomb
This is for the reasons of all who belong

Coma America

This is for the believers of the truth
This is for the leaders of the youth
These are the seeds for all who pollute
Polluters of the mind and all who use

Coma America

I am out!




18. WHORES OF HOLLYWOOD (EXTENDED)

On my hands and knees again
Begging for disease again
I'll do what I want, do what I can
To make it to this promised land
Your baby does gotta do
Only what you want her to

This is a warning
Whores of Hollywood
This is a warning
Whores of Hollywood

Do what I want, I do what I can
I'll do what I want, I do what I can
'Cause I'm sick of love and I'm sick of death
Sick of life and I'm sick of this
Stabbing so in love with you
No more love for you and you
I'm always on my hands and knees
Free?

This is a warning
Whores of Hollywood
This is a warning
Whores of Hollywood

Do what I want, I'll do what I can
Do what I want, I'll do what I can
'Cause I'm sick of love...
Sick of love and I'm sick of death
Sick of life and I'm sick of this

23. DRIVE

Drive Drive it home right now
Drive it home know how
Take it from the heart
You gotta tear yourself apart
From hell... Sinking hell
Like disease where I dwell
Burning kidneys where I roam
Never taking you back home
Let it out ride tonight
Drive, drive it home right now
Drive it home know how
Told you from the start
Tear your fucking heart apart
Drive me home right now
Drive it home right now
Take from my heart
Take me from my heart

Ground, turning ground burn it down burn it down
Crucify my nation, crucify the population
Time dollar sings my crime is my time
The dotted line try to find where you gonna hide
From my eyes from my mind
Into my children's faces... Their faces
Stay away! Goddamn it Stay Away! Never come back
Disintigrate, decision and the popular creation
Let it out, let it out
So he lied and you lied and that bitch she knows she'd gonna die
Keep it hiding, deep inside, she lied to swallow her pride
That bitch knows where it goes, down incineration
Incinerate my mind
Incinerate my nation

Punishment? Exiled. Punishment? Exiled.
Watch it fall... Watch it fall... Watch it fall...
Ride tonight

Drive, drive it home right now
Drive it home know how
Take me from the heart
You gotta tear yourself apart

Drive it home right now
Drive it home right now
Tear your fuckin' world apart
Drive it home right now
Drive it home right now
Take it from the heart
Take it form the heart
