Blood On The Ice
Slap shot sucker shot
Down on your knees
Skate to the face
You're gouged and you bleed
Tussle and muscle
Flare like a rocket
Goon squad hired hit
A buck in the pocket

Blood on the ice
Blood on the ice

Puck shy, black eye
Jam in the corner
Tangled up, beat up
A body for the coroner

Blood on the ice

Pile up, punch out
In the end zone
Puck in the mouth
The sound of crushed bone

Blood on the ice
Blood on the ice
Blood on the ice

Shoot to score
Fight to kill
Play to win
Cheer for more

Rookie rabbit punches
Blow to blow
Duck and punch, dance
Toe to toe
Face off, square off
Cross check to the jaw
High stick, end butt
You wanna break the law

Blood on the ice
Blood on the ice
Pounding way to win the fight
Blood on the ice
Black and blue; red on white
Blood on the ice
Blood on the ice
Blood on the ice
Blood on the iceback to top
Corporate Preacher
Your eyes are open but do you really see
Unhearing ears that won't listen to thee
You speak in riddles, it's a twisted truth
It makes me wonder who's corrupting the youth?

You read the scriptures but did you understand
You cast the first stone from your almighty hand
You say that all is black when there is white
No need to show me, show me the light

Chorus:
Corporate preacher
Disgracing the cross
Corporate preacher

TV church, it's big business time
Please won't you tell me what's your new prophet's line?

-Chorus-
Cursed from above

An Ernest smile as you Swaggart on stage
A Bakker's dozen turn the page
Words of truth spoken in lies
You milk the faithful with your cryin eyes
Don't try to tell me how to run my life
When you can't be faithful even to your wife

-Chorus-back to top
Toe Jam
Toe Jam!!

Pick your partner, nice and tight
'Cause we'll do more than dance tonight
Now promenade that's how it goes
You bucks beware of dosie dose
Dosie dose
Allemande in and allemande out
Hip your partner, make her shout
Make her shout
Back to the front or side to side
Tip your cap and come inside
Down with her fishnets up with her skirt
Dig a little deeper till ya hit paydirt

Toe Jam

Checkin' out her bedspan takin' it slow
Honey does your pussy scratch, don't you wanna know?
Up to the ceiling, down to the floor
If she rattles her heels ya know she wants more
Till she wants more
Right leg up, left leg down
Third leg out and shake it all around
Boys on bottom, girls on top
Dance all night never gonna stop

Toe Jam
Toe Jam
Toe Jam
Toe Jam

Yee-ha!
Ladies choice, now choose your beau
Show 'em everything you know
Bow to the west, bow to the east
Bend for the guy that you love best
That you love best
Girls out front, boys behind
Don't be shy to bump and grind
Sweep the lady off her feet
Swing her around to the bouncing beat
Ladies in the centre, now gents take care
Hold her down, don't let her rear
Dip and dive, you're on your own
Bow to your partner and drive her home!

Safe Sex
Gotta new lover
Better take cover
Got some advice
You'd better think twice
Arrow's in the quiver
When you're ready to deliver
Weenie wrap
To collect the sap
Stretch and Seal a meal
It just don't feel real
12 or 24 to the pack
Find them on the drugstore rack

Chorus:
Safe sex
If I abstain
I'll go insane
Safe sex
Give me sleaze
And not disease

Electro-tested for tears and leaks
Lubricated prophylactic sheiks
Get it up, get it on!

yank it, crank it
Piggies in a blanket
Clean your gun
When it's all done
Vacuum packed for your protection
Sanitized to fight infection

-Chorus 2X-back to top
Where Does All The Money Go?
Overdraft and NSF
When I sign my name
All in the line of duty
When playing in the game
A piece of the pie, cut of the take
Nothing left for me
Keep your eye on the money
Livin ain't for free

Chorus:
I wanna know
Where does all the money go?
I wanna know
Where does all the money go?

Bankrupt and out of cash
Never pay bills on time
Interest and mortgage rates
Are always on the climb
Income tax and revenue
Are something to evade
No need to worry
When you got it made

-Chorus-

Administrative aggravation
Monetary deprivation
All in all the situation's hopeless
Contractual reciprocation
Financial evaluation
After all negotiations

-Chorus-

I wanna know
Where does all the money go?

Repossess your furniture
Foreclosure on your loan
No way to call for help
When the disconnect your phone
Bouncing cheques and credit cards
Only time to borrow
Living on a shoe string
Where will I be tomorrow?

-Chorus-

Where does it go?!
-Chorus-back to top
Brain Burn
Your mouth is bigger
Than a two car garage
An assault to my ears
A verbal barrage
Your point of view is nowhere
Nowhere like you
Your attitude stinks
Like the garbage you spew

Chorus:
Brain burn
You give me brain burn

Superficial outlook
Shallow to the core
Minuscule mind games
You're nothing but a bore
Out of sight, out of mind
Out of touch, out of time

-Chorus-

You think you're right
But you're always proven wrong
The proof is in the pudding
The way you sing your song
Out of touch, out of time

-Chorus-

Nothin but a bonehead
Solid as a rock
You make me laugh
You're something to mock
You play it safe
And never take a chance
You're just a wimp
You can see it in a glance
Out of sight, out of mind

-Chorus 3X-
Brain burn!back to top
Senile King
Times are changing and you'll soon have the power
The weak before the strong will break down and cower
Decrepit choices made for you and me
Archaic ploys with no future there to see

Selling arms to support the contras
Runs the world just like the Costra Nostra
Times are changing
Rearranging

Senile king
Senile king

And when you disagree and rally in protest
Who will win this death-defying contest?
Tables turning
Bridges burning

Chorus:
Senile king
Senile king
Senile king
Senile king
Will destroy

The more I think about it, less sense of it I make
They'll never pay for deeds made in aged haste
No, instead they'll die high up in ivory towers
But just how old will you be in your finest hour?
Tides are shifting
Sands are sifting

-Chorus-
Senile king
Senile kingback to top
Machine Gun
In the bunker suppressing fire
Burning heat of hot desire
Ammo box and bullet belt
Automatic weapon how it felt
Assume position and take the mound
Spitting shells, we're victory bound

Barrage of shrapnel, a shower of lead
The taking of the beach head
Metal fatigue so grease the barrel
Evasive action and deadly peril
Fire at will
In for the kill
Kill or be killed

Shoot your machine gun
Machine gun

Spring loaded, trigger happy firing cap
Blow the beach right off of the map
Pull the fire pin - ready to go
Squeeze the trigger and watch it blow

Machine gun
Shoot your machine gun
Take aim and fire

Machine gun
Shoot your machine gun

Powder burned form rapid fire
Magazine did so expire
Discharge recoil when it's spent
Objective achieved withdraw with intent
Now the fortress was taken by force
A warring intercourse

Machine gun
Shoot your machine gun
Machine gun
Shoot your machine gunback to top
Fire In The Night
Seeping gas from a broken line
Chokes the midnight air
Pilot light will ignite
So begins the reign of terror

Flashing fire blazing hot
Exploding flames did blow
Sleeping innocent unaware
Caught inside the inferno

Chorus:
Burning
On fire
Burning
Burning down
Fire in the night
Fire in the night

Fleeing fast from flickering flames
Escaping death and cremation
Fire fighters set to battle
To control the situation

Fire in the night
-Chorus-

They watched their dreams go up in smoke
A lifetime's work laid waste
And all that once lay dear to them
In embers lay erased
In embers lay erased

Seeping gas from the broken line
Choked the midnight air
The pilot light that did ignite
Began the reign of terror

A castle that was once a home
Only ashes remain
Nothing left but memories
Just cinders down the drain

-Chorus-
Fire in the night
Fire in the nightback to top
Cramps
Cramps!
Cramps!
