Hypertension 03:19
Seized by stress, hateful energy Blood is boiling, trying to break free Temper flares, destruction takes its place Killing power, uncontrolled disgrace Draining the strength from your tired soul Robbed of your right to relax Tightening vices taking their toll Inflicting these deadly attacks Hot blood runs cold Death sentence from the day you’re born Pressure curse, your skin is ripped and torn Veins bulge, your body’s glowing red Hypertension is leaving you for dead Nervous wreck, hell bent on self destruction Can’t break apart this arterial obstruction Cardiac, rate of pulse increase Strained heart, you’re soon to be deceased
All the pool hall, hustling dough I’ll beat the pansies and then I’ll go Out to the bar to pick a fight Maim some rednecks then hit the night Why am I always in a mood like this? I don’t know, ain’t no psychiatrist This nagging feeling that I’ve got won’t quit I feel no pain and I don’t give a shit Left, Right, Fight: Taste the floor Two, Four, More: Out the door Music magazines with fags on the front They dress like women, their message is blunt They make their money, but they’re doing it wrong Kissing ass and writing radio songs Buying their records and seeing their shows The general public likes their panty hose I’m not as young as I used to be But I’ll still be thrashing at a hundred and three (you’ll see) They think I’m psycho, they think I’m deranged I wear my leather but I’m not that strange I walk the streets but I hate what I see Like a book by its cover, they’re judging me (fuck off!)
Behind Bars 02:14
You never thought I’d do it, you never saw it coming But it happened and they caught you in the act I used you for a set-up, I used you for a decoy And you fool: you went and fell into the trap You took me for an ally but I knew you were an enemy You got what you deserved because I’m shrewd You knew I was an expert in the art of pulling rip-offs But you never dreamed I’d put the heat on you I took the cash: you took the fall You get arrested: I had a ball You went to jail: I stole your car I’m having fun while you’re BEHIND BARS! You tried to tell the cops but they laughed right in your face And now they’re gonna throw the book at you Tough lesson for a rookie but they caught you with the cookies And now your brief career as thief is through I’m the master scammer, while they threw you in the slammer I was in your car and made my getaway I’m counting tens and twenties, yeah I’m counting all our money And you know I’m gonna spend it all today So if you wanna pull a heist you’d better get some good advice Before you meet another creep like me Don’t really think you like your cell, I think you’d rather be in hell But now I know the art of running free I know you really hate me and I know you wanna waste me But I also know you’re smarter than you look So when they do parole you and you think you’re on a roll You’d better think before I bait another hook (for you)
They called me a liar, a cheat and a thief They called me a sleaze and a creep They said I was stupid, they said I was wrong They told me my brain was asleep They new all along that I’d take revenge Get even for all of their lies The truth doesn’t hurt as much as this dirt So now I must plot their demise Don’t: don’t criticize or try to be wise Or I’ll kick you in the teeth Don’t: don’t make me fight, at least not tonight Or they’ll be laying your wreath Don’t know who they are but they can’t be far So I’ll hurt them down and make ‘em pay I’ve heard it before, I’ve heard it too much I heard it only yesterday They think they’re smart, they think they’re tough Well let ‘em say it to my face Cause when I am through, I’ll promise you Below the belt, my fist I’ll place
I’ll only say it once, don’t ask me to repeat it Like I said before, I don’t like you Just once you met me, and you don’t wanna bet me You’d never like what I’m about to do So where’d you stash the money, no don’t make me look You want to live another day my friend Lay it on the line cause you know what’s yours is mine The word we chose to use that day was lend You only live once, better run fast I don’t need excuses, I like it to last You only live once, better run fast I’ll only say it once, that was my old lady Hey, don’t let me see you talk or touch I’m not too good with pity so be telling the whole city Be telling them that I’m too fucking much Cause there was another man that crossed the line just once Just ask, if only he could talk His face has sort of changed, this guy I rearranged He ran, now if only he could walk I’ll only say it once, this here is my bottle Just in case I need a drink If you run out of wine, remember that it’s mine That should be enough to make you think I’ve worked for what I own, nobody’s gonna take it So shake it off before you dare I’m just like ice, I’ll never say it twice I’m just like the electric chair
Enforcer 03:44
I’m outside every night I prowl around with hate Revenge is mine, I will kill Enforce your bloody fate I take my time, what’s the rush I’ve already won Waiting for the moment Damage will be done Lurking outside while you’re sleeping Certain death is slowly creeping This is real, you’re not dreaming No one hears your morbid screaming Enforcer: Force ya God has called your number out Your dying lets me live Murder is my only thought The gift that I must give You’ve crossed my path too often You thought that you had won I’ve sentenced you to die in hell The sentence has begun Enforcer: Your life means so little to me Enforcer: I’ll waste you and then I’ll be free Enforcer: Regretting that we ever met Enforcer: You struggle but you’ve lost the bet
Backstabbing turncoat I caught you in the act Lowdown lying scumbag I’m gonna break your back You thought that you could pull it off But I saw through your game Now my hands are on your throat You’ve got yourself to blame Violent restitution: you ain’t seen nothing yet Violent restitution: I’m paying back the debt First I choke you ‘til you puke Then I’ll gouge your eyes Then it’s time to break your spine My promises aren’t lies And when you think it’s over And my debt is paid I’ll smash your face to pieces With my trusty spade Here I come Now you’re dead Got your woman In my bed Now I laugh While you cry It’s been fun But now you die... DIE!
I should’ve kept my big mouth shut I should’ve known my place This always happens every time I’m leaving in disgrace My self-control is facing My anger’s on the rise A temper tantrum on the loose I’m hated and despised Out of the game: This time I’m really gone Out of the game: But I won’t be for long Patience is a virtue At least that’s what they say But I don’t have the time to waste To try a different way Hatred is my weapon Violence is my friend And that’s the way it’s gonna be Until the very end (my friend) Out of the game: This time I’m really gone Out of the game: But I won’t be for long Out of the game: Believe me when I say Out of the game: There’ll be a price to pay
Whaaaaaaaaaa! The feel of the blade in my hand Violence! Violence! The power to kill any man Picking my victims and taking revenge The voices are inside my head Slicing your jugular, stealing your strength Won’t let up until you are dead Save your life, hide your wife form my knife: Stand and fight for it Blood to spill, before I kill, test your will: Stand and fight for it Whaaaaaaaaaa! Possessed by a feeling that’s strange Murder! Murder! I’ve gone through a psychotic change I used to be normal, I used to feel love But now all I feel is remorse A victim of lower society Now nature has taken its course All my friends were beaten to death So now I’ve gotta even the score Killing everything I can find Then I’m gonna kill some more I know there’s a price on my head They’ll hand me for the things that I do The edge of my razor is sharp And now I’m gonna use it on you Whaaaaaaaaaa! I’m gonna spread the pain around Torture! Torture! Killing’s the best thing I’ve found
Searching to find presence of mind Cranking the volume for kicks Inflicting true pain, awaiting the rain Looking for my metal fix Poetic hate, unmerciful fate Bringing my music to life Grinding machine, decibel stream Feeling the point of the knife Art form of butchers, eve of the storm The power is yours for the night Chaos and power, true to the form We’re partying through to the light Taken for fools, ignoring the rules Doing what’s right in our hearts Searching for truth, preserving our youth Intensity right from the start Hyping our cause, writing my laws They told me the good times were gone Laugh in their face, such a disgrace I guess it was time to move on Fiery eyes, a sign of the wise Something I’m doing for fun Can’t explain why I’ve got to try There’s no way that I’m gonna run Playing it fast, just like the past It’s all just a part of my style You’ll never know what makes us go I guess I’ll be hanging a while
Discipline 02:32
Take out your whip and give me the pleasure I crave Put on your leather and beat me until I behave Woman you know that I love to be punished by you Now take off your clothes because now it’s my turn to be cruel Dominate Dominate Welts all over my chest Discipline Discipline Baby your pain is the best Inflict me with bruises and watch as I scream with delight Humiliate me, I lust for your violence tonight Kiss me, then hit me, then tease me, then boss me around My body is aching with lust so we’d better get down Hurts good Back at your apartment you turn out all the lights Light a few red candles, I’m gonna spend the night You tie me to your bed with rope, you’ve got some heavy chains I’m getting ready for some love that’s painfully insane My clothes are gone, the candle wax is dripping on my chest Your fingernails into my flesh, you put me to the test I love the fire in your eyes, I wanna be your slave Tomorrow I’ll be feeling all the pleasure that you gave
Fed Up 02:30
Hang your head in shame Don’t wanna hear your name Say sorry then you do it all again Your expression tells the tale Self-sympathy prevails An asshole I could never call a friend Fed up with your attitude and fed up with your style Fed up with your butthead friends and hate your smart-ass smile Fed up with the goofs I see all throughout downtown Guelph Fed up with small city life, it makes me wanna Ralph I say things in anger You take ‘em all to heart You’ve got no fucking brains You’re not too fucking smart You’re just a little suck So now go home and cry To mommy and to daddy Cause you’ve got no spine Let me outta here today No longer wanna live this way Gotta leave, I’m getting ill Can’t take much more, I’m gonna kill Stupid city, like a jail Fans of thrash will post my bail Gotta hit the road and rage Let me out, unlock this cage Had enough, had enough Enough to make me sick Had enough, had enough Of people who are thick
Give me the weapons, I’ll finish the job I do what I have to, to win Killing the weak if they’re not on my side I don’t know the meaning of sin Under command if you’re paying my price I’m paying your back with my skill A hit man who deeds out the violence with ease Emotionless, customized kill Take aim: open fire I’ve still got drive and I’ve still got the fucking desire Survivor of torture, disturber of peace Fighting for reasons unknown Really don’t care if I’m good or I’m bad You pay me and I set the tone Like a cancerous cell infesting your blood They still haven’t found me a cure Victim circumstance, driven by greed Believe me, my hatred is pure Soldier of fortune, lives to be claimed Living in trenches and barrens untamed Soldier of fortune, treacherous crimes Motives uncertain, a sign of the times Killing machine, evil regime, sinister dream, listen for screams! Paying my price, rolling the dice, should’ve thought twice Your neck I will slice! Take aim: open fire I’ve still got the drive and I’ve still got the fucking desire Take aim: you’ll pay I’ve still got the will and I’ve still got the power to stay
