Keep on Rotting in the Free World3:42
The Threads Of Global Fabric Are United,
The Role Of The Western Free World Is In Decline,
Still Free To Consume, Free To Breathe,
Free To Exist, Free To Dream, Your Life Of Dreams,

Keep On Rotting, Keep On Rotting, Keep On Hoping, Dreaming, One Day Maybe,
Keep On Rotting, Keep On Hoping, Whilst In The Real World You...

Consumer Or Consumed, Your Life Is Cheap,
Economic Salvation In Sweatshops Returned From The East,
Despair The Only Quality Of Strife,
A Reason For Existence If You Can Afford The Price,
If Your Price Is Right,

Keep On Rotting, Keep On Hoping, Keep On Dreaming, One Day Maybe,
Keep On Rotting, Keep On Hoping, Keep On Dreaming,
Whilst In The Real World You...
Keep On Rotting, Keep On Hoping, Keep On Dreaming, One Day Maybe,
Keep On Rotting, Keep On Hoping, Keep On Dreaming,
Whilst In The Real World You...

Tomorrow Belongs To Nobody4:17
Your Kingdom Is Of Emptiness,
Invisible Empire Of Illusion,
There's No Majesty In Your Empty Words,
Your Ideology - Self Delusion,
Revisionism Is The Future,
So Let's Hail The Same Old Dawn,
Kneel Before The Same Old Order,
You're No Kings - Only Pawns,

You're Waiting For Tomorrow, Well Tomorrow Never Comes,
Ha, You're Waiting For Your New Dawn, So Sad To Say There Isn't One,
Because, (You Fools) Tomorrow Belongs To Nobody,

Tomorrow - Belongs To Nobodyback to top
Black Star3:29
Black Star, Jewel Of The Night,
Black Star, Burning Bright,
Magnificent Sun, A Beacon Burning,
Five Pointed Coal, A Guide Eternal,
Black Star, Five Pointed Coal,
Black Star, The Cosmic Soul,
Shining Opaque, Celestial Furnace,
Glittering Dark, A Sun In Mourning,

Black Star, Where Light Never Shines,
Black Star Won't You Be My Guide?
A Dead Sun For Where The Light Never Shines,

Shine On...
Twinkle, Twinkle Black Star,
Shine On...

Black Star, Darken The Skies,
Forever Burn, Never To Die,
An Ebony Flame, A Sun Infernal,
Nemesis Of The Night, My Own Dark Angel,
Black Star, Jewel Of The Night,
Black Star, So Cruel, So Bright,
A Glorious Sun, With Warmth So Healing,
Glittering Dark, A Sun In Mourning,

Black Star, Where Light Never Shines,
Black Star Won't You Be My Guide?
A Dead Sun For Where The Light Never Shines,

Shine On...
Twinkle, Twinkle Black Star,
Shine On... Black Starback to top
Cross My Heart3:34
Yeah, Cross My Heart And Hope To Die,
It Will Only End In Tears, Eye For An Eye,
For An Eye,
If Beauty Is Only Skin Deep,
Then Thankfully I Am Blind,
Cross My Heart And Hope To Die,

Cross My Heart, Come Cross The Line,
Won't You Be Mine, My Bloody Valentine?
Put Me On A Pedestal, I'll Put You On A Slab !!!!!
Cross My Heart And Hope To Die,
Come, Let's Cross The Line,
There's A Fine Line, Between Love And Hate,
Let's Tear It Apart,

Cross My Heart, And Hope To Die,
Cross My Heart, Come Let's Cross The Line,

Time Is No Great Healer, Quickly The Senses Numb,
Come Cross My Heart, Void And Null,
Love Is A Weakness, Lust Conquers All,
Cross My Heart And Hope To Die,
Where Do We Draw The Line?

There's A Fine Line, Between Love And Hate,
Let's Tear It In Two,

Cross My Heart, And Hope To Die,
Cross My Heart, Come Let's Cross The Line,

Let's Tear It Apart.back to top
Child's Play5:43
Raised In A Nursery Of Rumbling Brick,
Rusted Iron, Cracked Stone And Steel,
Nurtured In A Barren Concrete Crib,
In A Playground Of Grey, Your Fate Is Sealed,
Against A Back Drop Of Drab, Cold Corrosion,
We Learn To Dance, Love, Sing And Play,
Razor Wire The Strung Umbilical Cord,
In An Unsterile Womb Of Urban Decay,

Let Me Take You Down,
As I'm Going Too,

Play Hard - Like Child's Play,
Playing Rough - After All It's Only A Game,

Now, Redevelopment Lies In Ruins,
As Gutted Slums Are Sown,
Enveloping, Smothering Squalor,
This Dereliction Grows,
Outside It Is Now Cold And Dark,
Only Desolation, Darkness And Gloom,
Not A Far Cry From A Tortured Cat,
Your Cities Will Become Your Tombs,

Let Me Take You Down,
As I'm Going Too,

Play Hard - Like Child's Play,
Playing Rough - After All It's Only A Game,back to top
Room 1014:35
Don't Claim To Be A Prophet,
Don't Claim To Read The Stars,
But I Can See A Future,
Mapped Out In Scars,
Look To The Skies,
Keep Praying To Your Gods,
Your Only Salvation,
Will Come In The Shape Of The Bomb,

No Clockwork Orange,
The Doom Watch Ticks,
There's No Second Coming,
Only Final Conflict,
Blind Pessimism?
Only Time Will Tell,
The Cold Hard Reality,
Is That This World Has Gone To Hell,

And This Is Where I Belong,
In My Room One Zero One,
As I Sit Here All Alone,
In My Own Private Year Zero,

These Numbers Branded,
Embedded In The Mind,
How Can You Herald A Future,
When It's Already Arrived?
Keep Looking To The Skies,
Keep Waiting For Your Lord,
You Fools There's No Second Coming,
To Redeem You All,

And This Is Where I Belong,
In My Room One Zero One,
As I Sit Here All Alone,
In My Own Private Year Zero,

Don't Claim To Be A Prophet,
Don't Claim To Sight The Stars,
But I Can Read The Future,
In Anguished Mental Scars,
I Have No Faith,
In Anything That You Hold Dear,
The Future Is Ours,
Only In Sweat And Tears,
And This Is Where I Belong,
In My Room One Zero One,
As I Sit Here All Alone,
In My Own Private Year Zero,back to top

Generation Hexed3:48
Lost Forever,
A Whole Generation Of Pathetic Lost Souls,
With No Meaning No Depth,
They're Already Dead, Before It Gets Old,
Anonymous, Blank,
No Individuality, Uniformed,
A Wholesale,
Blanket Identity, From The Day That They're Born,
- Another Generation To Mourn,

What Choice For A New Generation?
Another Generation Under Sedation,

Flocking Like Sheep,
The Instinctual Herd, As Fashion Dictates,
Primitively Seduced,
Commonly Reduced, Resigned To Their Fate,
Another Useless,
Faceless Degeneration,
Like The One Which Precedes,
Acknowledging,
A Bleak Existence, To Be Spent On It's Knees,
- The Pattern It Seeds,

What Choice For A New Generation,
Another Generation Under Sedation,

Generation Hexed,
Just Another Useless Generation
... Hexed

Trapped Together,
Another Wasted Generation Is Sold,
With No Meaning, No Depth,
They're There To Be Bled,
Never Breaking The Mould,
Anonymous, Blank,
No Individuality, Misinformed,
A Wholesale,
Blinkered Non-Entity, On It's Knees Born,
- Another Generation To Scorn,

What Choice For A New Generation?
Another Generation Under Sedation,

Self Suppressed,
Generation Vexed,
Ha, Self Oppressed,
Just Another Generation Hexed,

What Choice For A New Generation?
A Generation Vexed,
Still No Choice For A New Generation,
Just Another Generation Under Sedation,

Generation Hexed,
Just Another Useless Generation,
Generation Hexed,
Just Another Wasted Generation,

Firm Hand5:22
Firmhand, Iron Fist, An Ardent Dexterous Weeding Process,
Overlord With A Strong Grip, Viral Containment, A Harvesting Grid,

Firmhand - Unnatural Selection Is Applied
Firmhand - The Final Solution, Eugenocide,

Hate Is The Law, Love Under Will,
Hate Is Their Law, Love Under Will,

Transfusing, Contagion Breeds,

R**K The Vote3:53
Hands In Another's Pocket,
The Bed They Make,
Is Not The One In Which They Lie,
The Same Old Faces,
The Same Old Establishment,
The Same Old Lies,
Cross Your "X",
It's Your Only Voice,
Do As You're Told,
Don't Rock The Boat,
And Buy What You're Sold,

Believe The Lie,
The Line That You Toe,
Doing Fine,
If You Just Do As You're Told,

No Dissident Voices,
The Faces Merge,
Are One, Absolute,
A Comfortable, Privileged,
White Over Belly,
Revolution,
No Threat, No Change,
No Gain, Just Pain,
The Same Old Scheme,
No Hope, No Choice,
No Future, No Voice,
This Is No Pipe Dream,
All Is Not What It Seems,

Believe The Lie,
The Line That You Toe,
You'll Do Just Fine,
If You Just Do As You're Told,
You Believe The Lie,
The Line That You Toe,
Doing Fine,
If You Just Do As You're Told,
Is This Rock'n'roll Or A Form Of State Control?

Is This Really Rock'n'roll?
Or A Form Of State Control?back to top
Don't Believe A Word3:57
You Should Never Take Too Literally What You Read,
Misinformation, Distortion, Make Belief,
Fabrications, Half Truths Implied,
Misquotations, Out Of Context And Lies,

"I Promise To Tell The Truth,
The Whole Truth And Nothing But..."

Lies - You Believe Them All,
Lies - You Swallow Them Whole,
Lies, Lies, Half Truths Misinformation And...
Lies - You Believe Them All,
Lies - You Swallow Them Whole,
Lies, Lies, Half Truths Misinformation And...
... Lies,

Fact And Fantasy United As One,
Real Power Stems From The Barrel Of A Pen,
Living Memory Can Easily Be Erased,
The Pen Is Mightier Than The Sword,
Yet With No Blade,

"I Promise To Tell The Truth,
The Whole Truth And Nothing But..."

Lies - You Believe Them All,
Lies - You Swallow Them Whole,
Lies, Lies, Half Truths Misinformation And...
Lies - You Believe Them All,
Lies - You Swallow Them Whole,

Go To Hell3:22
Some People Aren't Cut Out To Be Saints,
And Since I Was Born In Original Sin,
Hedonism Has A Certain Attraction,
I Think I'll Cut The Crap, Cut Out The Middle Man,

And Go To Hell,
I've Sold My Soul, So When My Body Goes Cold,
I'll Go Straight To Hell,
Go To Hell,
Won't You Be Told?
I've Sold My Soul,
Go Straight To Hell

Your Paradise Doesn't Sound Too Fetching,
It's Not Only Your Souls Which Must Be Lost,
"Hell Is Other People",
Yeah, Too Right, My Hell Is You,

The Sins Of The Flesh Sound So Appealing,
So Let Me Wallow In My Guilt,
Your Hell Will Be My Heaven,
So Let's Turn Up The Heat, Let Eternity Begin,

And Go To Hell,
I've Sold My Soul, So When My Body Goes Cold,
I'll Go Straight To Hell,
C'mon,
Let's Go To Hell,
Won't You Be Told?
I've Sold My Soul,
Go Straight To Hell,

Let's Burn In The Flames, Yeah!!!!back to top
