Lyrics

1. DREAD AND THE FUGITIVE MIND

Let me introduce myself
I'm a social disease
I've come for your wealth
And leave you on your knees
No time for feeling sorry
I got here on my own
I won't ask for mercy
I choose to walk alone

What’s yours is mine and what’s mine is mine too
If you shake my hand better count your fingers

What if I do get caught?
What if there is no judgement?
If I’m right I loose nothing
If your right I loose it all

I ought to get caught
Because I'm doing something wicked
I'm guilty haunted by my fears
And the only consequences
Are dread and the fugitive mind

You built walls to protect you
So no one will infect you
Pursued by thoise out there
That vanish in thin air
Come a long way to find
What you already left behind
You don't know when the end is
But it's coming fast




2. TRUST

Lost in a dream
Nothing is what it seems
Searching my head
For the words that you said

Tears filled my eyes
As we said our last goodbyes
This sad scene replays
Of you walking away

My body aches from mistakes
Betrayed by lust
We lied to each other so much
That in nothing we trust

Time and again
She repeats let's be friends
I smile and say yes
Another truth bends
I must confess

I try to let go, but I know
We'll never end 'til we're dust
We lied to each other again
But I wish I could trust

My body aches from mistakes
Betrayed by lust
We lied to each other so much
That in nothing we trust

God help me pleas, on my knees
Betrayed by lust
We lied to each other so much
Now there's nothing we trust

'How could this be happening to me
I'm lying when I say "trust me"
I can't believe this is true
Trust hurts
Why does trust equal suffering'

Absolutely nothing we trust!




3. TIME: THE BEGINNING

Father time, I'm running late
I'm winding down, I'm growing tired
Seconds drift into the night
The clock just ticks till my time expires
You were once my friend
Now I know I can't tie your hands

The days I saved I couldn't spend
They fell like sand through the hourglass
No time to lose, no time to choose

Time taking time, it's taken mine
Scenes of my life seem so unkind
Time chasing time, creeps up behind
I can't run forever, and time waits for no one
Not for me

An enemy I can't defend
My final place. A deadly end.
Life's just a speck in space
Dreams of an eternal resting place

I can't get any younger
Time has brutal hunger

Time taking time, it's taken mine
Scenes of my life seem so unkind
Time chasing time, creeps up behind
I can't run forever, and time waits for no one
Not for me




4. USE THE MAN

I saw Her Today
I Saw Her Face
Was A Face That I Loved
And I Knew
I Had To Runaway
And Get Down On My Knees And Pray
I can't go away
Still I pretend her
Needles and pins

I heard somebody fixed today
There was no last goodbyes they say
His will to live ran out
I heard somebody turned to dust

Looking back at what he left
A list of plans and photographs
Songs that never will be sung
These are the things he won't get done

I've seen the man use the needle,
Seen the needle use the man
I've seen them crawl from the cradle
To the gutter on their hands
They fight a war but it's fatal,
It's so hard to understand
I've seen the man use the needle,
Seen the needle use the man

Just one shot to say goodbye
One last taste to mourn and cry
Scores and shoots, the lights go dim
Just one shot to do him in

He hangs his head and wonders why
Why the monkey only lies
But pay the pauper he did choose
He hung his head inside the noose

I've seen the man use the needle,
Seen the needle use the man
I've seen them crawl from the cradle
To the coffin on their hands
They fight a war but it's fatal, it's so hard to understand
I've seen the man use the needle,
Seen the needle use the man
Cryptic writing on the wall, the beginning of the end
I've seen myself use the needle, seen the needle in my hand




5. HOLY WARS

Brother will kill brother
Spilling blood across the land
killing for religion
Something i don't understand

Fools like me, who cross the sea
And come to foreign lands
Ask the sheep, for their beliefs
Do you kill on God's command?

A country that's divided
Suerely will not stand
My past erased, no more disgrace
No foolish naive stand

The end is near, it's crystal clear
Part of the master plan
Don't look now to Israel
It might be your homelands

Holy wars

Upon my podium, as the
Know it all scholar
Down in my seat of judgement
Gavel's bang, uphold the law
Up on my soapbox, a leader
Out to change the world
Down in my pulpit as the holier
Than-thou-could-be-messenger of God

Wage the war on organized crime
Sneak attacks, repel down the rocks
Behind the lines
Some people risk to employ me
Some people live to destroy me
Either way they die, they die

The killed my wife, and my baby
With hopes to enslave me
First mistake... last mistake!
Paid by the alliance, to slay all the giants
Next mistake... no more mistakes!

Fill the cracks in, with judical granite
Because I don't say, I don't mean it I ain't
Thinkin' it
Next thing you know, they'll take my thoughts away
I know what i said, now i must scream of the overdose
And the lack of mercy killings, mercy killings, killings, killings
Next thing you know they'll take my thoughts way




6. ALMOST HONEST

I lied just a little
When I said I need you
You stretched the truth
When you said that you knew
Just can't believe it
There's nothing to say
I was almost honest, almost

Living alone, can't stand this place
It's four in the morning and I still see your face

I was nearly pure
When I said I Loved you
You were semi-sincere
You said I'd bleed for you
We were kind of candid
Now you've gone away
You were almost honest, almost

Living alone, falling from grace
I want to atone, but there's just empty space
I can't face tomorrow, now you're not coming back
Walked off in the night and just left me the tracks

I question the call by the tone of your voice
I know I should hang up but I don't have a choice
It happened that night when you told me to go
Don't ask who'se to blame, I don't know

Almost, almost honest
Almost, I was almost honest




7. PROMISES

(No lyrics available)




8. SHE WOLF

The mother of all that is evil
her lips are poisonous venom
Wicked temptress knows how to please
The priestess roars, "get down on your knees"

The rite of the praying mantis
Kiss the bones of the enchantress
Spellbound searching through the night
A howling man surrenders the fight

One look in her lusting eyes
Savage fear in you will rise
Teeth of terror sinking in
The bite of the she-wolf

My desires of flesh obey me
The lioness will enslave me
Another heartbeat than my own
Sound of claws on cobblestone, I´m stoned

Beware what stalks you in the night
Beware the she-wolf and her bite
her mystic lips tell only lies
her hidden will to kill in disguise




9. MOTO PSYCHO

Responsibility, an anchor around my neck
Dependability, made me a nervous wreck
Accountability, I live from check to check
Volatility, neglect and no respect

Got my wheels in motion and I got a path to beat
I hit the road to "I don't know" and look for "Tough Shit Street"

One-way ticket nowhere there's no windows on this train
Can't see where I'm headed but I'm going there again

Moto Psycho
Going nowhere everybody is a
Moto Psycho move it or lose it baby
Going nowhere 100 miles an hour
Moto Psycho I'm a Moto Psycho
Moto Psycho

You know you can't resist to tell me what I mean
You gave my mind a twist said that I was unclean
The actor runs the play and ad-libs in between
You're all that I resent my thoughts were so obscene

Got my wheels in motion and I got a path to beat
I hit the road to "I don't know" and look for "Tough Shit Street"

One-way ticket nowhere there's no windows on this train
Can't see where I'm headed but I'm going there again

Moto Psycho
Going nowhere everybody is a
Moto Psycho move it or lose it baby
Going nowhere 100 miles an hour
Moto Psycho I'm a Moto Psycho

One-way ticket nowhere there's no windows on this train
Can't see where I'm headed but I'm going there again

Moto Psycho
Going nowhere everybody is a Moto Psycho
Going nowhere move it or lose it baby Moto Psycho
Going nowhere 100 miles an hour Moto Psycho
Where I'm headed I don't know but
I'm shoving off and I hit the road
Going nowhere everybody is a Moto Psycho
Time and time and time again I'm a
Moto Psycho
Moto Psycho move it or lose it baby
Going nowhere 100 miles an hour
Moto Psycho I'm a Moto Psycho




10. SYMPHONY OF DESTRUCTION

You take a mortal man,
And put him in control
Watch him become a god,
Watch peoples heads a'roll
A'roll, A'roooooooollll

[Chorus]
Just like the Pied Piper
Led rats through the streets
We dance like marionettes,
Swaying to the Symphony
Of Destruction

Acting like a robot,
Its metal brain corrodes
You try to take its pulse,
Before the head explodes
Explodes, exploooodes

[Chorus]

The earth starts to rumble
World powers fall
A'warring for the heavens,
A peaceful man stands tall
Tall, taaaaaaalll

[Chorus]
