Ton of Bricks
Rip it up, kick it out.
Blood begins to flow.
Taking chances,
The only way I know.
Sacrificed everything.
I'm the grinding stone.
Ripping flesh, drawing blood.
I'de love to eat your bones.

My world will not cave in.
I will dare so I will win.
Hear the timebombs begin to tick.
I'll hit you like a ton of bricks.

Hammer or anvil,
You must pay the price.
Thunder, lightning,
Yes, it does strike twice.
Vice grips hold me,
Keep me in control.
And if you think I'm kidding you,
You will feel the fatal blow.

My world will not cave in.
I will dare so I will win.
Hear the timebombs begin to tick.
I'll hit you like a ton of bricks, ton of bricks.

Oh yeah, you!
I know that it's true
Do you have a clue
To what I'm gonna do?

I'm gonna

Rip it up, kick it out
Blood begins to flow
Taking chances
The only way I know
Sacrificed everything
I'm the grinding stone
Ripping flesh and drawing blood
I;de love to eat your bones

My world will not cave in
I will dare so I will win
Hear the timebombs begin to tick
I'll hit you like a ton of bricks

Ton of bricks, ton of bricks

Oh yeah, you!
I know that it's true
Do you have a clue
To what I'm gonna do?

I'm gonna stop.back to top
Start The Fire
Break down the walls of forever.
Pull down hard on the lever.
Let them know that you can turn the key.
Though they try to hold us down.
Turn it up, that chainsaw sound.
I just love to see my parents flee.

So you see that they're all going nowhere.
Everybody's staring into space.
Start the fire.
Bring down the hammer.
Start start the fire.
Burning on forever.

Now I see the storm clouds a coming.
Can you feel the juice, it's a hummin'.
Feed the power cables into me.

Like a ship that's built for destruction.
I'm a metal man of construction.
And I'll fire my cannons, one by one.

So you see that they're all going nowhere.
Everybody's staring into space.
Start the fire.
Bring down the hammer.
Start start the fire.
Burning on forever.

Method To Your Madness
Please let us at them,
Goes the barrack room cry,
I'm glad I'm not going.
I'm not dying to die.
I've got all my medals
Survived sneak attacks
It's not worth all the feelings
And compassion I lack.

Out on the run, guns at your back,
They've got you in their sights.
Everyone's gone, they're dead in a trench.
Endless, sleepless nights.

I've been to the jungle
In garrison file
I've walked death's quiet paths
Each lonely mile
I killed for no reason
My heart grew stone cold
With a gun in your hand,
Suddenly you think you're so bold

Out on the run, guns at your back,
They've got you in their sights.
Everyone's gone, they're dead in a trench.
Endless, sleepless nights.

Out on the run, guns at your back
They've got you in their sights
Is the method to your madness now
To try to end your life?

Captive there and all alone
I would bide my time
I'de write my family and all my friend
And tell them I am doing fine
But why is there blood upon my chest?
Is there a method to this madness?

Twenty one guns salute you,
When you die.
Twenty one guns salute you,
Why, oh why?
Your gravestone reads
You were a patriot's son.
But nobody cares
When all is said and done.

Out on the run, guns at your back,
They've got you in their sights.
Everyone's gone, they're dead in a trench.
Endless, sleepless nights.

Out on the run, guns at your back,
They've got you in their sights.
Is the method to your madness now
To try to end your life?back to top
Watch the Children Pray
In a darkened graveyard glows a light.
I see it shine there every night.
I know somewhere there's a hidden door.
There's an answer here we must explore.

No, I'll not submit to reason.
I'll sit and watch the seasons change.

We watch the children pray.
Save us God today,
Come whatever may.

We hold our fate and make the choice,
But we'll not listen to that still small voice.
Are we just crazy, out of our minds?
Wish this were someplace, another time.

We watch the children pray.
Save us God today,
Come whatever may.

And I know we're going
So far away from this wretched life we lead.
With open arms meet catastrophe,
In the valley of the damned we'll be.

And I know we're going
So far away from this wretched life we lead.
With open arms meet catastrophe,
In the valley of the damned we'll be.

We watch the children pray.
Save us God today,
Come whatever may.

And now to life we say goodbye.
I know the when but not the why.
Our nation's blood spills on the ground.
Our lives go out without a sound.back to top
Over My Dead Body
No matter what you say,
You're gotta make it through the day.
You know you will, you know you will.
Just call the doctor on the phone,
Tell 'em you can't make it all alone.
Gotta get your fix.

So climb aboard your scarlet ship,
Stars are brightly dancing in your eyes.
Keep chasing all your dreams,
You know they're just a pack of lies.

The sands of time are running out.
You know this god ain't got a doubt
He's gonna get your soul.
Gonna get your soul.
Driving hard and living fast,
You know your life ain't worth a line of blast
Laid on the mirror.

So climb aboard your scarlet ship,
Stars are brightly dancing in your eyes.
Keep chasing all your dreams,
You know they're just a pack of lies.

Push the needle in your vein.
Ya laugh and shout that you're insane
You wanna die, you're gonna try.
Racing down the open road,
On your mind's heavy load of pain.
What will you gain?

So climb aboard your scarlet ship,
Stars are brightly dancing in your eyes.
Keep chasing all your dreams,
You know they're just a pack of lies.

Just a pack of lies.
Try, try, try, you're gonna try.
Lie, lie, lie, you know they're lies!
Die, die, die, you're gonna die!back to top
The Dark
It's way past midnight
There's a howling wind
Oh God what can it be?
Something out there evil
And it's coming straight for me
The house is dark and very cold
I know there's no one here
Why am I scared to death
Just petrified with fear

'Cause I'm shakin' and I'm thinkin'
Of something evil lurking
And waiting for me in the house
'Cause I'm shakin' and I'm thinkin'
Of something evil lurking
And waiting for me in the dark
The dark

When I opened up the door
And snapped on the switch
The room was filled with light
Then something black and very fast
Fled upon my sight
What I feared most as a child
Was the coming of the night
Now my horrors have become quite real
My nightmares breathe new life

'Cause I'm shakin' and I'm thinkin'
Of something evil lurking
And waiting for me in the house
Yes, I'm shakin' and I'm thinkin'
Of something evil lurking
And waiting for me in the dark
Dark!

What is it in the house
That the darkness brings to life?
I sense their eyes upon me
As I grab a butcher knife
Whatever it is that waits for me
It hides beneath my bed
If I try to sleep tonight
By morning I'll be dead!

'Cause I'm shakin' and I'm thinkin'
Of something evil lurking
And waiting for me in the house
Yes, I'm shakin' and I'm thinkin'
Of something evil lurking
And waiting for me in the dark

Psycho
Stick your fingers in the eyes of night
Rip open the Belly of Death
Now you'll see
What is real

Tear down the image of youth all around
Steal the dreams from their minds
And you'll be
All their lies

Can it be what you're taught to believe
It's nothing more than your mind can conceive
He's out there waiting, he's waiting for you
The psycho is ready to kill

Well you're a mean one, a bloody bastard son
You don't care what they say or what they do
It matters not to you

You've been warned not to set foot after dark
You think it's all just for fun
But there's no setting sun

Can it be what you're taught to believe
It's nothing more than your mind can conceive
He's out there waiting, he's waiting for you
The psycho is ready to kill

One way all the time
You can't seem to get it right
You never see the tunnel
Or the light
Spend a million just to say
You're hip
You got to find a way
To get the thrill of your life
Trip the lights
Trip the light fantastic
Party and you'll die
Someday you will die

3 am and you feel that twitch again
For a walk in the park
It's getting late
Slip through the gate

The psycho jumps out from behind
Sticks his knife in your throat
And you dieback to top
Line of Death
Just the pain has worn me down
Don't play me far ahead
Living quiet, fighting for some time
Your gonna see one day
Your not listening now
You haven't heard a word I said

Your laughter burns hot
An existing pawn
Your lies are open now
Nothin' left to hide

Now, I'm telling you
Leave all your troubles far away
I've listened now to this dead-end shit
It all just sounds the same

You're a big boy now
Get up off the floor
You what?!
Do you want to know
Coming to get you

Yes, everybody wants a piece of your ass
It's time you know the pain
Your time is running out
We're gonna meet on judgement day

Hide, hide, hide, ahh,
Your in the bloodback to top
