Track Name: Hasslehoff
Blur of steel tearing up the road.
Fucking pissed,
Good as dead.
There's no time left for you to borrow.

Demon from hell on the prowl for blood.
Evil machine,
A bad dream.
Racing down a highway of sorrow.

Yesterday is so far away.
Here and now,
Make a vow.
That you'll live to see tomorrow.
Tomorrow...

You don't know what you said.
Why are you the one?
Minding your own business.
Eating a loaded gun.

Rusted body on a crooked frame.
Window cracked,
Headlight out.
Engine ripping into full throttle.

Gears are grinding calling out your name.
Floor the gas,
Hit to pass.
RPMs screaming out for your soul.
For your soul...

You don't know what you did.
Or where this thing is from.
There won't be any answers.
To stay alive you run.

You can't see his face.
You can't read his eyes.
He won't park the beast.
Until someone dies.

Raw power tears into your side.
Steel on steel,
Grip the wheel.
Getting used like a rock sledge hammer.

Crippled and nothing left but fumes.
Last descent,
Mind is spent.
Diesel joust decides the survivor.

Murder rig comes in for the kill.
Step aside,
Watch him glide.
Off the cliff into a blast of fire.
Of fire...

You never saw his face.
You never read his eyes.
Bask in being alive.
And not the one who died.

I'm not on your side.
I wanted you to die.
We're not on your side.
We all want you to die.
Track Name: Wreckhead
Sometimes you need your peace of mind.
Sometimes you lose it to see what you find.
Handfuls of pills make you a strange kind.
On the ground the bodies outlined.

You see the rage comes easy when things disconnect.
You see the terror please me when heads are wrecked.

Bring me the heads of those who tell lies.
Kneel at my feet cut down to size.
Bad things done to elicit cries.
Make things right the problem dies.

You see the rage comes easy when things disconnect.
You see the terror please me when heads are wrecked.

See...
You see.
You see.
You see.
You don't see, you...

Sometimes you need your peace of mind.
Sometimes you lose it to see what you find.
Handfuls of pills make you a strange kind.
On the ground the bodies outlined.

You see the rage comes easy when things disconnect.
You see the terror please me when heads are wrecked.
You see the rage comes easy when things disconnect.
You see the terror please me when heads are wrecked.

Pills, blood, drink.
Eat, face, mind.
Ground, truth, lies.
Pills, blood, find.
Track Name: Brass Tacks
From above the hand of god
Reaches down and grabs your neck.
A soul is found but there's no one around
To keep your ass in check.

Many times throughout our lives
We wonder why things don't work out.
Well maybe one day you'll see
What you get equals all that you put out.
Yeah.

You're just coasting along.
No gas in the tank.
Like you knew all along.
You got no one to thank.

Below, the devil does glow
He burns a blood-crimson red.
The way you live and all you don't give
I'm fucking shocked that you ain't dead.

Just one time would you be so kind?
Fuck off and leave us alone.
I can't be carrying all your guilt.
Rest assured I have loads of my own.
Yeah.

You're just coasting along.
No gas in the tank.
Like you knew all along.
You got no one to thank.

It's the same old story.
It's the same old lie.
And I can't feel sorry.
No I don't even try.

You're just coasting along.
No gas in the tank.
Like you knew all along.
You got no one to thank.

You're just coasting along.
You're just coasting along.
You're just coasting along.
Track Name: A Noose
Tie up your loose ends with a noose.
Kick out the chair and watch 'em hang.
Gagging on the truth was fine.
Until the lies just buried you.

At some point they see the light.
Shut it off they crawl and beg.
Feeding them fists, all lefts and rights.
A mouth that lies is never full...

Let 'em suck it 'til they choke.
Break their teeth 'til they can speak no more.
See it in their eyes the weakness.
Feel it in their face your fist.
Yes.

Sometimes.
Some people.
Just have to die.

Feed them slugs to cure the mind.
Take a pull and breathe in deep.
When there is no sign of life.
A mouth that lies is never full...

Let 'em suck it 'til they choke.
Break their teeth 'til they can speak no more.
See it in their eyes the weakness.
Feel it in their face your fist.
Yes.

Sometimes.
Some people.
Just have to die.
Track Name: The Ocean
The waves come crashing down on me.
It's overwhelming how it should be.
All my control washed out to sea.
And all that's left is a shell of me.

It feels like drowning all alone.
But you're all with me, our minds are blown.
Under current, hypnotic drone.
Lost in the ocean and left to roam.

And one day we'll find our way.
In the depths there's no light of day.
The tides will guide us to all we need.
And bring us back when consumed by greed.

Ever feel like you're the only one.
Who knows just what we have become.
Sometimes we're better off leaving.
Than pandering to the deceiving.

The gods are clashing because of me.
All those bad things they come three.
Having to end it just to be free.
Makes the masters all slaves to me.

And one day we'll find our way.
In the depths there's no light of day.
The tides will guide us to all we need.
And bring us back when consumed by greed.

Ever feel like you're the only one.
Who knows just what we have become.
Sometimes we're better off leaving.
Than pandering to the deceiving.

The waves come crashing down on me.
It's overwhelming how it should be.
All my control washed out to sea.
And all that's left is a shell of me.

And one day we'll find our way.
In the depths there's no light of day.
The tides will guide us to all we need.
And bring us back when consumed by greed.
Track Name: Facedragger
Sometimes I never feel like myself throughout the day.
Other days I climb inside everyone else's head space.

Leave me where I lie, do not touch me let me be.
Wake up on the wrong side of the life and see them flee.

Briefly allow mistakes to confirm there's no standing.
Once their hands are shown chop them off and feed each one to me.

Buy time to prolong the process of their suffering.
Create the false truth to mask the face of make believe.

Blazing a trail in one solid line.
Heels to the heavens, face drags behind.

All the time we spend trying to show others how to be.
Wasted when you factor in the time to sprout the seed.

Trials tire out the reserves set aside for misery.
Anarchy arrives, I kill you for food.
For fun, your family.

Blazing a trail in one solid line.
Heels to the heavens, face drags behind.
Track Name: Negative Reinforcement
Broken down slow, torn apart piece.
Grave mistake made,
Blatant reckless nervous way.

Not to complain, but your eyes fail to se.
Such arrogance,
Fastest end in history.

Blackened view of all who may disagree.
Pissed away time,
When there's one you see three.

Confine yourself, can't be left alone with me.
Break open wide,
Demons rise where I am me.

Time is not on your side.
It's not on your side, nor will it be.
There's nothing for you it's all for me.
It's not your side nor will it be.
Nor will it be!

Yeah, maybe you be all the bad that sets me free.
Faces ingrained,
Memories that kill your dreams.

Narcotic clouds insufflate obscurity.
I beg for change,
You wish that you could be me.

Time is not on your side.

I'm right.
I'm right.
You're wrong.
Forever.
Track Name: Halo
Sit down or stand aside and join the rest.
Come now let me decide you fail the test.
Why try to resist the crushing force.
Heads roll, functions cease, no remorse.

A drain on your mind.
A thorn in your side.
A host for your fear.
And a lie for your ear.

Give up, there's no one there to help you through.
Cave in and walk away it's what you do.
Pretend, a total fraud you know we know.
Melt down, the pressure wins goes to show.

How time can reveal.
The things we find real.
Are ghosts and shadows.
Disguised in wolves clothes.

Give in.
Give in.

Sit down or stand aside and join the rest.
Come now let me decide you fail the test.
Why try to resist the crushing force.
Heads roll, functions cease, no remorse.

There's no one there.
To help you through.
Just walk away.
It's what you do.
A total fraud.
You know we know.
The pressure wins.
Just goes to show.

Give in.
Give in.

Give up, there's no one there to help you through.
Cave in and walk away it's what you do.
Pretend, a total fraud you know we know.
Melt down, the pressure wins goes to show.
