DJL68 Good to have this appropriately titled thrash classic back in my collection, freshly remastered and finally sounding as it should. Forget all the retro wannabes, this is the real deal- Fast, tight, heavy as hell and filled to the brim with aggression. Easily their best, most consistent effort to date. Favorite track: Iron Legions.

Track Name: In Protest
I deliver images of stark reality
Reflections of the human race and our hypocrisy
Questioning the reasons why our video was banned
Severed from the airwaves in our home and native land
Censored
Mention sex or violence and the censors get concerned
Insulting our intelligence, I guess we haven’t learned
Why do goofs with hang-ups have control of what we think?
This so-coiled free society’s a ship about to sink
Look and then you’ll see
Decisions being made for you and me
That’s why we’re here, because we care
We tell it like it is and we aren’t going anywhere
Don’t let us down if you’re the same
Get your point of view across and beat them at their game
We’ve got to fight to stay alive
Exposing ail the hypocrites until they can’t survive
I’ve heard empty promises from those I used to trust
So called friends who lie to you because they feel they must
Tell you what you wanna hear then take you for a ride
It’s not my job to scam and rob your wallets with a lie
In protest raise your voices ’cause it’s time to take a stand
Challenge their authority, we’ll take the upper hand
Track Name: Sucker For Punishment
I fight the system ‘cause I’m offended
Know what it means to be a pawn
Manipulated beyond all reason
You can’t decide what’s right or wrong
Absorb the pressure, avoid the pain
See the factory, it’s just a prison
Life sentence just so you can eat
You’re just a number, they’ll sacrifice you
Replace you with a new machine
You think they’re loyal, you think they care
You think you’ll never lose your job
You’re just a sucker, if you don’t wake up
One day you’ll find out that you’re gone
What are we doing, creating a system
Resulting in meaningless lives?
Instead of improving, we’re always abusing
Too selfish to ever be wise
Busting our butts in a rush to get nowhere
Just look what we’re leaving behind
A trail of destruction, self-centered obstruction
It’s time to start using our minds
Fight the system, lose the pain
Lacking in courage, afraid of the future
Pretending that everything’s fine
How will it feel when you’re forty years old
And you’re dumped from the factory line
Plan your escape’ cause it’s certain to happen
The day when you’re through is at hand
Sucker for punishment, here is your warning
Be ready before you get conned
Fight the system, lose the pain
Feel the pressure, this life’s insane
Track Name: Bad Vibrations
Why does everyone I know act stupid when they’re drunk?
They talk too loud, slur their words, throw up on my rug
They fall downstairs but they can’t feel the bruises they receive
Pissing in my garbage can, can’t wait until they leave
I never learn
I threw the party, bought the booze, got what I deserved
Didn’t think they’d wreck my house, never seen such nerve
Now I’ll spend the next two days repairing all my stuff
Get the disinfectant out, I hope I bought enough
Puke stains permanently in my rug
Won’t fade no matter how hard I scrub
Shit
Next time there’s a party I’ll be sure it’s somewhere else
Revenge is mine when I show up, I’m gonna wreck your house
Enjoy the panic stricken look on someone else’s face
Nothing’s gonna stop me tram destroying your whole place
Track Name: Road Gunner
Rising power, feel the speed as I shift into high gear
All alone, lawn the road, I know your gates are near
Hell sent, whipped with fury, death certificate I signed
None survive my speed machine, I’m out to kill mankind
Road Gunner, your fate
Road Gunner at your gate
You backstab me and think you’ll get off free
Road Gunner, too late
Lock your doors, bolt down the bars, here comes my death machine
Cloud of hate hangs overhead, it always follows me
Wicked swiftness, speed wind raider, I will hypnotize
There’s no quicker way to kill than right between the eyes
High balling speed, like lightning
See the chrome shine, roaring wheels
Burning up the highway
My speed demon made of steel
Road Gunner, say bye
Road Gunner, you die
Fuck with me and it’s your destiny
Road Gunner, no lie
Track Name: Cheers
Hey, I’m on a high roll
I like to party hard
Don’t dig no flakes in flashy clothes
Who think they’re fucking stars
I’ve got myself to live my life
It’s all I really need
I’ve worked this hard for what I am
If you don’t like it you con leave
Cheers: You only live one life
Cheers: If you’re gonna party, do it right
Cheers: Nobody’s gonna change my mind
You think it’s rude, this attitude
You must be fucking blind
“They’ll never last”, well here we are
We’ll thump right to the end
Some have stayed and some believe
This drink’s for you my friend
But most of them, they cut us down
And say we’ve got no class
We might be wrong, we might be right
So blow and kiss my ass!
Cheers to my friends
Track Name: Red Money
I don’t think you realize the way things really are
Play with fire, burn yourself, you let things go too far
Now you come to me and say that you can’t pay your dues
You’ve been warned 1000 times so now you’re going to lose
Fool. You know you’ve got more debts
Than anyone I’ve met
Compound interest paid in blood, ‘cause loan sharks don’t forget
Where you live
Skipping town will do no good, I knew you’d try to deke
Sent my friends to follow you and now you’re up shit’s creek
You can’t con a con man, there’s no point, you’re going down
If you’ve got the money then pay up, don’t fuck around
If they have to kick your ass, you’ve got yourself to blame
You didn’t have to come to me for cash to play your games
I’m just another businessman, I’ve got my job to do
Pay back what you borrow or they’ll break your legs in two
Track Name: Free Lunch
You piss me off, you drive me nuts
You drink my beer and you always smoke my butts
You owe me money, you owe me big
You washed up nothing, you slob, you pig
Don’t say you know me, don’t say we’ve met
You squirmy worm, why don’t you pay back all your debts?
You’re always sorry, but then you’re back
Bleed me dry until I die, I’ll have a heart attack
They warned me, but I never heard
You always take advantage of me
I told you to settle the score
But you think your lunches are free
You used to work to earn your keep
But you always called in sick and now you spend the day asleep
I’m not your mom, I’m not your dad
I’m not a genius but I know when I’ve been had
I want my cash and you expunge
My money is the water and you wanna be the sponge
You never change, but then again
You’ve always been a loser but you’re also my best friend
Track Name: Iron Legions
Forces beyond your control expose you to hazardous waste
Arson, the deviants play, igniting the lead that you taste
Acid, the rain starts to fall, smokescreen develops above
Nature, the balance destroyed, killing the life that you love
Legions protest in the streets
The people aren’t willing to die
Riots, the mosses are angry
Exposing the corporate lie (again)
Fighting the ignorant scum, they do anything that they please
Fat cats, they don’t have the time to help us prevent this disease
Violence grows with the problem, an issue the big shots ignore
Anger, the people revolt, the legions will even the score
Terrorism by another name, the end result’s the same
Nobody wants to drink the acid rain, no way!
Track Name: Mental Torture
You wanna be cool, you wanna be tough
You wanna be respected, be a man
So you shoved off your face, cut off your hair
Then they gave you a gun and a badge
Now you’re the law, you do what you want
And “we the people” do what you say
‘Cause you are the man with the gun in your hand
God help us if we get in your way
Hey, give me a break
What the hell do you think is going on?
They always think I’m stoned, never leave me alone
I think it’s ‘cause my hair is long
Hey, get off my case
I’m speaking on behalf of my defense
They’re always acting brave behind those tinted shades
I’m guilty ‘til I’m proven innocent
Now the world needs law and order as common sense dictates
But big shot rookies busting heads is what I really hate
The law is their authority, their actions justified
To “serve and protect”, I think what they meant
They’ll do what seems right at the time
They think I’m trouble ‘cause I look like I do
I see suspicion rise
It’s getting harder just to walk down the street
Without their Big Brother eyes
It’s in the paper, now it’s on my TV
I’ve seen the violence and hate
They call it justice but they’ve pushed it too far
Stop it before it’s too late
Torture yourself with the facts
You do what you’ve chosen to do
No one is giving you sympathy
Changes are long overdue
I’ve got no problems with the cops ‘round the world
Who put their lives on the line
Rounding up rapists and diddlers and sorts
Taking a bite out of crime
But what’s this shit with the heavies some pull?
I’m seeing Billy the Club
It’s over race, religion, colors and creeds
I’ve seen gunned down in cold blood
Wise up if you are a super cop, hero I’m talking about
No one has jurisdiction to play God and snuff a life out
Track Name: Psychopath
I put my gloves on, I go outside
I rev my engine and I’m ready to ride
I’m hyperactive, I’m on a tear
I’m on the highway going who knows where
I feel explosive, I feel uptight
I’ve got a hard on for some violence tonight
You can’t subdue me, I can’t relax
Don’t wanna be here when the virus attacks
Forget who you are
Forget where you’ve been
You don’t want to meet the real me
I’m a psycho (like Norman Bates)
Increasing pressure inside my brain
Cuts off the blood flow, constricting my veins
The panic rises, I’m under siege
At first you doubted me but now you believe
Don’t try to help me, don’t hang around
I’m not responsible for running you down
Loss of control, possessed with hate
You try escaping but you tried it too late
The medication has no effect
Organism that you’ll never detect
A bastard virus, first of its kind
Don’t know you’ve got it ‘til you lose your mind
I take my gloves off, my job is done
You didn’t listen when I told you to run
I rev my engine, I head for home
Until the next attack I’m finally alone
Track Name: I Disagree
You know what my problem is ‘cause you know everything
You say that we play too fast, you say that I can’t sing
Tell the world your expert lies
The speed freaks know you’re blind
I don’t play for critics
I don’t care what’s on your mind
I disagree
Sound the death knell for the bonds if they don’t like your face
If they hurt your feelings you proclaim them a disgrace
Weasels have no business interfering with our taste
Tell the truth in your reviews, I’ve got no time to waste
If a critic doesn’t like the music that you play
Forget about his point of view, don’t matter anyway
If they feel offended just because I wrote this song
Then you’ll see some bad reviews, but now you know they’re wrong
We disagree
Track Name: End Of The War
Soldier, I’ve given you orders, you’ve got to be ready to tight
Freedom is what we’re defending because it’s our God given right
Living a life without violence, I know that you wish it was true
Outlaws disturbing the world peace, now you know what you must do
Leaders who crush human rights
They know what they’re doing is wrong
Armies of organized death squads
They march to a different song
Rise up and teach them a lesson
They will not escape from the free
Force them to give up the slaughter
And then you will finally see
The end of the war
People who protest on our side, they think that all war is insane
Ignoring security threats, they can’t offer on alternate way
No one wants to wage warfare
But sometimes you don’t have a choice
No time for being naive
Instead we should speak with one voice
Hoping that we’ll see the day when war is a thing of the past
Power in responsible hands will see that this war is the last
Solving the issues around us depends on intelligent thought
Regardless, we need our armed forces
In case a new war must be fought
Even the score, finish this war
No more
