D.N.R. (Do Not Resuscitate)
Lies... broken dreams
Dismal past
is there more in life...
should I... know
Ending wars... ending pain
Ending of mankind is insane
and there's all the possibilities
some will fail and some will achieve
Even through in my youth
I didn't know but what can I do
and I may not ever see
In my pain, my suffering
Can not live for the rest of my life
DNR Do not resuscitate me...

Life... lost unseen
behind the mask
and with the open arms will I grasp
Open doors... open minds...
Ending all the madness I hate

And I may not ever see
In my pain, my Misery
Can not live for the rest of my life
DNR Do not resuscitate me... DNR...

Wing of sadness... will
hold my prayers
all this madness... will
end my fears
contempt in life
Conceptualize, wrong or right
The ending of life...
God save me now...

Time... end it now
No going back
Can you see the light as you pass
Ending wars, ending pain...
Waited all my life to be saves

And I will not ever see
All the hate and suffering
Can not live for the rest of my life
DNR Do not resuscitate me... DNRback to top
Down for Life
Music: Peterson
Lyrics: Peterson, Billy, James
Of dog faced gods
Through the Nile sands whisper
Of ancient times, mayfly names
Flickered and gone
The blood and honey
Dripping from their jaws
Through the Nile sands whisper
Ancient times, fade into the dawn
Of dog faced gods
Manifest in the night
The sacred rights
Handed down through tiems of old
Dark words of power
Blood upon their tombs
Through incantations
Locusts fly, signaling doom
Confirm who I am
Confort all I can
Conceive sorcery
Corrodes disbelief
Solo: James
Of dog faced gods
Dead civilzation
Through priests of power
Invoking life of the ancient one
The blood and honey
Dripping from their jaws
Through the Nile sands whisper
Travel through time to the land unkown
Confirm who I am
Confort all I can
Conceive sorcery
Corrodes disbeliefback to top
Eyes of Wrath
"Eerie Inhabitants" by TESTAMENT
A world of chaos
A world of fear
A world of anger and corruption
When all is lost
and millions starve
Is this humanity's destruction?
LIFE! A game that people play
CRYOUT! Will they see another day?
No one to help us,
the children pray
Nobody listens to their CRYING
This great depression
when will it end?
To live like this is worse than dying
LIFE! A game that people play
CRYOUT! Will they see another day?
Your destiny is over
your fate has declined
Refuse to discover
what so many could find
Death's endless toil
as I long for rest
Life's now forsaken
condemned to repress!
No sign of heaven
No sign of hell
Just the sign of pain and sorrow
This generation inhabits all
To form an order for tomorrow
LIFE! A game that people play
CRYOUT! Will they see another day?back to top
True Believer
TESTAMENT " Trial by Fire " off of THE NEW ORDER
Accuse you of a crime
Sentenced to endless time
The price you have to pay
Won't get away!
Sworn in by the stand
Your rights are gone
The system's banned
They think you are a liar
A trial by FIRE!
HEY!
This is what the people say
A new way
A trial by fire!
Locked in an empty cell
Your life becomes a living hell
The river of fire flows
Time only knows!
Trapped by flames of fury
Ordered onto by the jury
Death is their desire
Thrown in the fire!
Hey!
This is what the people say
A new way
A trial by fire
Quiver by the fiery light
Cringing as your soul ignites
The book of law's been thrown away
starting today!
The system before the war
Is gone for now and ever more
There is no sentence higher
A TRIAL BY FIRE!
Hey!
This is what the people say
A new way
A trial by fire!

Legions of the Dead
Music: Peterson
Lyrics: Billy, James
Domestically violent
With razor blade smiles
Infested with anger
A well hidden crime
Teaching those lessons so cruel
Ah, the torment spreads
War inside my head
Please just set me free
You call this... a family?
Battered, abusive
There's no wrong or right
When you're enslaved in your room
Hiding from demons
In urban daylight
Knowing that they'll be here soon
Confusion and bruises
And scars left for life
When physical evidence fades
Silently screaming
Just to be loved
Their innocence taken away
Ah, the torment spreads
War inside my head
Please just set me free
You call this... a family?
Solos: Eric, James
Virtues are shattered
By parents they trust
When all love they give is misued
The next generation
The damaged will learn
To keep spinning wheels of abuse
Ah, the torment spreads
War inside my head
Please just set me free
You call this... a family?back to top
Careful What You Wish For
===================
Come on and fight !
Witches grow restless, the priests are impatient
My legions scream, "The doors must be open !"
Our Master repels a message of hope
On through the gates we march
The sentinels await with their sabers in grasp
A vast group, a locust attack !
A vast group, a locust attack !
Attacking with force as we show no remorse
Obstructing our victims fate
The blood in the chalice saluting the fight
All virgins must die on this night
Psychotic reaction from a serpents kiss
Is taking the life from your soul
And leading a train of destruction from Hell
Finding our way through Hell's Hole !
Curse of the Legions of Death !
Curse of the Legions of Death !
Curse of the Legions of Death !
Curse of the Legions of Death !
Provoke the Dead !
Curse of the Legions of Death !
Provoke the Dead !
Curse of the Legions of Death !back to top
Riding the Snake
Music: Peterson
Lyrics: Billy, James
Doesn't know what to do anymore
Jesus makes love to the spike
A trick for a fix and feeling so sck
Just can't seem to get right
Once he was the king of his world
A world without any order
SOld it all without thinking twice
Just for a spoonful of water
Ride, ride on through
Ride, ride through you
Ride, ride on through
Ride, ride through you
Ceremonious ritual
Raising of the veins
Always early and feeling so late
Waving goodbye to the rain
Ride, ride on through
Ride, ride through you
Ride, ride on through
Ride, ride through you
Slowly scratching away at the world
Fearless when he is stoned
Obsessed by dreams of what could've been
Trapped in his kingdom alone
Ride, ride on through
Ride, ride through you
Ride, ride on through
Ride, ride through youback to top
Allegiance
I went off to the doctors for the open plan surgery
He said I just can't believe what's lying here in front of me
It looks like what you couldn't drink you'd just have to smoke
You've been living in a frying pan, what you need is health
So I burgled a few houses took the candy from the baby
In search of the prescription that was driving me crazy
The policeman turned the corner looking down at me
The judge said I hope to God that you're sorry
You need help, that's what you need
You need help, can't get it from me
You need help, something you got or you ain't
You need help
So I started off my sentence in a nine foot cell
I was feeling pretty cheated, I was feeling unwell
The bunk below guy said there's one thing see
What you really need is the need to be free
You need a plan, that's what you need
You need a plan, can't get it from me
You need a plan, something you got or you ain't
You need a plan
But what I don't want is you telling me
I had the route, had the escape, I had the plan worked out
Everything I thought I'd need or thereabouts
Suddenly it's obvious, it's plain to see
That what I don't need is you telling me
Don't need your health
Don't need your help
Don't need your plan
I don't need anything
What I don't want is you telling meback to top
Sewn Shut Eyes
Caged... and riding the snake
Straight down from the night
True love for the fix
and she never been able
one minute
to kick back the feelings enticed
and you know it's never the same
Venomous poison constricting your life

Life... enough of the taste
Sweet demonic night
Raised up on her legs
Everytime you encounter the demon
Your future forever forever is lost
While riding the snake
who suffers the loss

Is there no shame
Is life so bad without you...
So far away
and I still can't fight you!!!

Climb... straight into the veins
Ran into the cell
Straight up to the snake
and it never will ever be

Hidding from futures
of innocence lost
Will we ever escape
the clinch of the jaws

Drowning in pools filled with lies
Filled inwith pain
Watch how the serpent survives...
Simmering hate!!!

Caged... and riding the snake
Love loss for the fix
bit down on the snake
Fates sending her back
No place to go
She will never change her ways
Spent to many nights
and can not take
raw emotions from others

Drowning in pools filled with lies
Condemned in pain
Watch how the serpent survives...
Simmering hate!!!back to top
Fall of Sipledome
Eyes of wrath
The beast is on your back
Razorblade slice your neck
Slowly tear you down
Takes another life
To feed his bloody lust
Random crime spree attack
There's no random at all

Dead city nights
Another daughter's done
Another victim of circumstance
Took the wrong way home
Can you hear the screams
The music of the dead
A ritual of broken flesh
Annoints the silver blade

No one lives forever
There is no forever
And I'll tell you why
Rage, Rage soothes the pain
Pain, Pain soothes the rage
Lash out in anger
that never will chance
I can never escape
Rage, Rage Soothes the pain
Pain, Pain Soothes the rage
Rage, Painback to top
