Holy Wars... The Punishment Due
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 Surely 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 ...The Punishment Due 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 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 judicial granite Because I don't say it, don't mean 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 Hangar 18
Welcome to our fortress tall Take some time to show you around Impossible to break these walls For you see the steel is much too strong Computer banks to rule the world Instruments to sight the stars Possibly I've seen to much Hangar 18 I know too much Foreign life forms inventory Suspended state of cryogenics Selective amnesia's the story Believed foretold but who'd suspect The military intelligence Two words combined that can't make sense Possibly I've seen to much Hangar 18 I know too much Take No Prisoners
Got one chance, infiltrate them Get it right, terminate them The Panzers will, permeate them Break their pride, denigrate them And their people, retrograde them Typhus, detriate them Epidemic, devastate them Take no prisoners, cremate them Going to war, give'em hell D-Day, next stop Normandie Beginning of the end We know how to and sure as shit we'll win War is peace sure man A retreat for the damned A playground for the demented A heaven for those who walk this world Bereft of heart and soul Love and war they say all is fair Take his life But won't take his hair Your body has parts your Country can spare By the way son here's Your wheelchair He once had to be all he could be Now he's nothing for no one nowhere to see Funny thing, he's like you and me It's a funny thing, a funny thing Tears streak his solemn stare Abandoned for wreckage nobody cares No one knew what would happen there No one spoke no one even dared Don't ask what you can do for your country Ask what your country can do for you Take no prisoners, take no shit Five Magics
Bestow upon me knowledge Wizard - all knowing all wise I want to rule this kingdom Make sweet the breeze now defiled Dethrone the evil prince's iron fists In velvet gloves of sin Parade the grey robed monks The vestal virgins,wheel the wyvern's in Let the ceremony consecrate the marriage Let me be the protege Of five magics Give me alchemy Wizardry Sorcery Thermatology Electricity Magic if you please Master all of these Bring him to his knees I master five magics Possessed with hellish torment I master magics "5" Hunting the abyss lord Only one will stay alive He who lives by the sword Will surely also die He who lives in sin Will surely live the lie Poison Was The Cure
I miss the warm embrace I felt First time you touched me Secure and safe in open arms I should have known you'd crush me A snake you were when we met I loved you anyway Pulling out your poisoned fangs The venom never goes away Serpent swims free in my blood Dragons sleeping in my veins Jackyl speaking with tongue Roach egg laying in my brain Once stalked beneath your shadow Sleepwalking to the gallows I'm the sun that beats your brow in Til I finally threw the towel in Never knowing if I'd wake up in a Whirlpool got redundant My brain was just some driftwood In a cesspool I became dead From a rock star to a desk fool Was my destiny someone said Loves a tidepool Taste the waters life's abundant Taste me Lucretia
Sitting up late at night I tiptoe through the darkness Cold as hell black as spades Aware of my immediate surrounding In my place I escape Up into my hideout Hiding from everyone My friends all say Dave you're mental any way hey! Drift into a deeper state I stalk the cobwebbed stairways Dirt grits beneath my feet The stair creaks, I precariously sneak Hypnosis guides my hand I slipslide through the walkways Sit in granny's rockin' chair Memories are whirling by yeah Reminisce in the attic Lucretia waits impatiently Cobwebs make me squint The cobra so eloquently glints Moonbeams surge through the sky The crystal ball's energized Surely that like the cat waiting Lucretia rocks away Tornado Of Souls
This morning I made the call The one that ends it all Hanging up, I wanted to cry But dammit, this well's gone dry Not for the money, not for the fame Not for the power, just no more games But now I'm safe in the eye of the tornado I can't replace the lies, that let a 1000 days go No more living trapped inside In her way I'll surely die In the eye of the tornado, blow me away You'll grow to loathe my name You'll hate me just the same You won't need your breath And soon you'll meet your death Not from the years, not from the use Not from the tears, just self abuse Who's to say, what's for me to Cause a big nothing it'll be for me The land of opportunity The golden chance for me My future looks so bright Now I think I've seen the light Can't say what's on my mind Can't do what I really feel In this bed I made for me Is where I sleep, I really feel I warn you of the fate Proven true to late Your tongue twist perverse Come drink now of this curse And now I fill your brain I spin you round again My poison fills your head As I tuck you into bed You feel my fingertips You won't forget my lips You'll feel my cold breath It's the kiss of death Dawn Patrol
Thermal count is rising In perpetual writhing The primordial ooze And the sanity they lose Awakened in the morning To more air pollution warnings Still we sleepwalk off to work While our nervous systems jerk Pretending not to notice How history had forebode us With the green house in effect Our environment was wrecked Now I can only laugh As I read our epitaph We end our lives as moles In the dark of dawn patrol Rust in Peace... Polaris
Tremble you weaklings, cower in fear I am your ruler, land, sea and air Immense in my girth, erect I stand tall I am a nuclear murderer I am Polaris Ready to pounce at the touch of a button My system locked in on military gluttons I rule on land, air and sea Pass judgement on humanity Winds blow from the bowels of hell Will we give warning, only time will tell Satan rears his ugly head, to spit into the wind I spread disease like a dog Discharge my payload a mile high Rotten egg air of death wrestles your nostrils Launch the Polaris, the end doesn't scare us When will this cease The warheads will all rust in peace Bomb shelters filled to the brim Survival such a silly whim World leaders sell missiles cheap Your stomach turns, your flesh creeps High priest of holocaust, fire from the sea Nuclear winter spreading disease The day of final conflict All pay the price The third world war Rapes peace, takes life Back to the start, talk of the part When the earth was cold as ice Total dismay as the sun passed away And the days where black as night Eradication of Earth's Population loves Polaris
