[toggle title=”1. Cowboys From Hell”]Under the lights where we stand tall Nobody touches us at all Showdown, shootout, spread fear within, without We’re gonna take what’s ours to have Spread the word throughout the land They say the bad guys wear black We’re tagged and can’t turn back

You see us comin’ And you all together run for cover We’re taking over this town

Here we come reach for your gun And you better listen well my friend, you see It’s a pistol is down below aimed at you We’re the cowboys from hell.

Aimed at you we’re the cowboys from hell Deed is done again, we’ve won Ain’t talking no tall tales friend ‘Cause high noon, your doom Comin’ for you we’re the cowboys from hell

Pillage the village, trash the scene But better not take it out on me ‘Cause a ghost town is found Where your city used to be So out of the darkness and into the light Sparks fly everywhere in sight From my double barrel, 12 gauge, Can’t lock me in your cage

You see us comin’ And you all together run for cover We’re taking over this town

Here we come reach for your gun And you better listen well my friend, you see It’s a pistol is down below aimed at you We’re the cowboys from hell. Deed is done again, we’ve won Ain’t talking no tall tales friend ‘Cause high noon, your doom Comin’ for you we’re the cowboys from hell [/toggle] [toggle title=”2. Cemetery Gates”]Reverend reverend is this some conspiracy? Crucified for no sins An image beneath me Whats within our plans for life It all seems so unreal I’m a man cut in half in this world Left in my misery…

The reverend he turned to me Without a tear in his eyes It’s nothing new for him to see I didn’t ask him why I will remember The love our souls had Sworn to make Now I watch the falling rain All my mind can see Now is your (face)

Well I guess You took my youth I gave it all away Like the birth of a New-found joy This love would end in rage And when she died I couldn’t cry The pride within my soul You left me incomplete All alone as the Memories now unfold.

Believe the word I will unlock my door And pass the Cemetery gates

Sometimes when I’m alone I wonder aloud If you’re watching over me Some place far abound I must reverse my life I can’t live in the past Then set my soul free Belong to me at last

Through all those Complex years I thought I was alone I didn’t care to look around And make this world my own And when she died I should’ve cried and spared myself some pain… Left me incomplete All alone as the memories still remain

The way we were The chance to save my soul And my concern is now in vain Believe the word I will unlock my door And pass the cemetery gates [/toggle] [toggle title=”3. Mouth For War”]Revenge I’m screaming revenge again Wrong I’ve been wrong for far too long Been constantly so frustrated I’ve moved mountains with less When I channel my hate to productive I don’t find it hard to impress

[Pre] Bones in traction Hands break to hone raw energy Bold and disastrous My ears can’t hear what you say to me

[Chorus] Hold your mouth for the war Use it for what it’s for Speak the truth about me Determined

Possessed I feel a conquering will down inside me Strength The strength of many to crush Who might stop me My strength is in number And my soul lies in every one The releasing of anger can better any medicine under the sun

[Pre]

[Chorus]

There comes a time within everyone to close your eyes to what’s real No comprehension to fail I vacuum the wind for my sail Can’t be the rest Let others waste my time Owning success is the bottom line. Like a knife into flesh After life is to death Pulling and punching the rest of duration NO ONE can piss on this determination[/toggle] [toggle title=”4. Walk”]Can’t you see I’m easily bothered by persistence One step from lashing out at you… You want in to get under my skin And call yourself a friend I’ve got more friends like you What do I do?

[Pre:] Is there no standard anymore? What it takes, who I am, where I’ve been belong You can’t be something you’re not Be yourself, by yourself Stay away from me A lesson learned in life Known from the dawn of time

[Chorus:] Respect, walk, what did you say? Respect, walk, are you talking to me? Are you talking to me?

Run your mouth when I’m not around, it’s easy to achieve You cry to weak friends that sympathize Can you hear the violins playing your song? Those same friends tell me your every word

[Pre]

[Chorus:] Respect, walk, what did you say? Respect, walk, are you talking to me? Respect, walk, what did you say? Respect, walk, are you talking to me? Are you talking to me?

No way punk!

[Solo]

[Chorus:] Respect, walk, what did you say? Respect, walk, are you talking to me? Respect, walk, what did you say? Respect, walk, are you talking to me? Are you talking to me?

Walk on home, boy! [/toggle] [toggle title=”5. This Love”]If ever words were spoken Painful and untrue I said I loved but I lied In my life All I wanted Was the keeping Of someone like you As it turns out Deeper within me Love was twisted and pointed at you

Never ending pain, quickly ending life —

[Chorus] You keep this love, thing, love, child, love, toy You keep this love, fist, love, scar, love, break You keep this love

I’d been the tempting one Stole her from herself This gift in pain Her pain was life And sometimes I feel so sorry I regret this the hurting of you But you make me so unhappy I’d take my life and leave love with you

I’d kill myself for you, I’d kill you for myself —

[Chorus]

No more head trips[/toggle] [toggle title=”6. I’m Broken “]I wonder if we’ll smile in our coffins while loved ones mourn the day, the absence of our faces, living, laughing, eyes awake. Is this too much for them to take?

Too young for one’s conclusion, the lifestyle won. Such values you taught your son. That’s how.

Look at me now. I’m broken. Inherit my life.

One day we all will die, a cliched fact of life. Force fed to make us heed. Inbred to sponge our bleed. Every warning, a leaking rubber, a poison apple for mingled blood.

Too young for one’s delusion the lifestyle cost Venereal Mother embrace the loss. That’s how

Look at you now. You’re broken Inherit your life.[/toggle] [toggle title=”7. Becoming”]A long time ago I never knew myself. Then the memory of shame birthed its gift.

No more. The small one, the weak one, the frightened one. Running from beatings, deflating. I’m becoming more than a man. More than you ever were. Driven and burning to rise beyond Jesus.

I’m born again with snakes eyes Becoming Godsize

I found my life was slipping through my hands. Perhaps through death my life won’t be so bad.

I can see you, can fuck you, inside of you. Staring through your eyes. Belittle your friends to serve me, to suck me, To realize my saving grasp. I of suicide. I the unlord.

I’m born again with snakes eyes Becoming Godsize[/toggle] [toggle title=”8. 5 Minutes Alone”]I see you had your mind all made up you group of pitiful liars. Before I woke to face the day, your master plan transpired. Something told me this job had more to meet the eye. My song is not believed? My words somewhat deceiving? Now I’m unwhole.

[bridge:] You’ve waged a war of nerves But you can’t crush the kingdom Can’t be what your idols are. Can’t leave the scar. You cry for compensation. I ask you please just give us…

[chorus:] 5 minutes alone

I read your eyes, your mind was made up. You took me for a fool. You used complexion of my skin for a counter racist tool. You can’t burn me I’ve spilled my guts out in the past. Taken advantage of because you know where I’ve come. My past.

I ask you please just give us[/toggle] [toggle title=”9. Planet Caravan (Black Sabbath Cover)”]We sail through endless skies Stars shine like eyes The black night sighs

The moon in silver trees Falls down in tears Light of the night

The earth, a purple blaze Of sapphire haze In orbit always

While down below the trees Bathed in cool breeze Silver starlight breaks down the night

And so we pass on by the crimson eye Of great god Mars As we travel the universe [/toggle] [toggle title=”10. Drag The Waters”]A smack on the wrists is the words from the mouth of the outsiders, lawyers, police A small price to pay for the dope and the guns and the rape, it should all be O.K. Your father is rich, he’s the judge, he’s the man, he’s the God that got your sentence reduced But in the back of his mind, he well knows what he’d find if he looked a little deeper in you – in you

Drag the waters some more Like never before

Sweet is the slice and the lips – you’re gonna have that woman – she is your favorite lay Promised you (swore) that no one had been there, and she was going to keep it that way Let it move in, you got thin, and got high, and your money went and so did your friends But she’s by your side, and her smile cannot hide the premonition of the beckoning end – the end

Drag the waters some more Like never before

In with it, out with it[/toggle] [toggle title=”11. Where You Come From (Live)”]It’s strange to be around again Can’t kill the bad disguise I was asking for it all, Being dragged down the road Call it wisdom call it ignorance

But it’s still alive And it’s in me now And it lives and breathes I can’t give a fuck

I’ve got a big mouth And there’s a life to live From a bottle of whiskey It’s where you come from (the south)

A remedy to the curse On harder wares control Look at what’s around But I just can’t lie around Feeling sorry for myself

But it’s still alive And it’s in me now And it lives and breathes I could care less

I’ve got a big mouth And there’s a life to live From the weight of whiskey It’s where you come from It’s where you come from

Bottle of Whiskey

I fell in front of my friends I dropped out in front of the world You call that supernatural? It ain’t

I’ve got a big mouth And there’s a life to live From a bottle of whiskey It’s where (the south)

Black wings will weather your flight For some there’s no second time Following paths of your life I stepped off the mountain to the sky

Watch your ass now It’s where you come from Why’d you settle down? It’s where you come from Where you come from Why’d you ask them? It’s where you come from [/toggle] [toggle title=”12. Cat Scratch Fever (Ted Nugent cover)”]Well, I don’t know where they come from but they sure do come I hope they comin’ for me And I don’t know how they do it but they sure do it good I hope they’re doin’ it for free

They give me cat scratch fever Cat scratch fever

Well, the first time that I got it I was just ten years old I got it from some kitty next door An’ I went to see the doctor and he gave me the cure I think I got it some more

They give me cat scratch fever Cat scratch fever I got a bad scratch fever The cat scratch fever

It’s nothin’ dangerous I feel no pain I’ve got the choo-choo train You know you got it when you, you’re going insane It makes a grown man cry, cry, oh won’t you make my bed

Well, I make the pussy purr with the stroke of my hand They know they gettin’ it from me They know just where to go when they need their lovin’ man They know I’m doin’ it for free

Revolution Is My Name”]68′ into the world born And the Seventies, a breath after the war Life was confusing because of my age Should my eyes open for tomorrow’s gains? I can’t help the way I am There’s no trust and there’s no end What is my name?

It will never change So here it stays Forever is my name

From now on, can’t look the other way Keep in mind and listen to what I say Take under wing all the ones who are lost Build up around them an infinite wall Don’t you know just who I am? Take the hand of wisdom’s friend What is my name?

It’s time to change It can’t stay the same Revolution is my name It will never change So here it stays Forever is my name

What is my name? Forever…

When I die, I cast a shadow And I’ll rise, I cast a shadow

I’m leaving more eyes open I close up both of mine For the ones that chase my life They’re looking over shoulders Let paranoia in Spontaneously rule them

When I die, I cast a shadow And I’ll fly, I cast a shadow

Everybody get fucking up! I cast a shadow… I… I cast a shadow I cast a shadow… I… I cast a shadow

When I die, I cast a shadow And I’ll rise, I cast a shadow [/toggle] [toggle title=”15.

Don’t waste your time, embrace it And then you’ll know yourself The change in you is Goddamn Electric

The weight of the world has lifted and parted My eyes roll blind to sights that distracted Through tunnel-vision and dope-hair blinders I’ll cut a path and evoke my will – To walk through the world by ones self, you can’t Be protected… your trust is in whiskey and weed And Slayer, it’s Goddamn Electric

Don’t fake your life – inhale it And then you’ll know yourself The change in you is Goddamn Electric Don’t waste your time, embrace it And then you’ll know yourself The change that is Goddamn Electric will focus> The Mind’s Eye…

One hand on the bottle, the other a shaking Fist, rejuvenated, isolated, no pressure From the outside, my sight’s Goddamn Electric And these eyes have seen a world Goddamn Electric system… [/toggle] [toggle title=”16. Hole In The Sky (Black Sabbath cover)”]I’m looking through a hole in the sky I’m seeing nowhere through the eyes of a lie I’m getting closer to the end of the line I’m living easy where the sun doesn’t shine

I’m living in a room without any view I’m living free because the rent’s never due The synonyms of all the things that I’ve said Are just the riddles that are built in my head

Hole in the sky, gateway to heaven Window in time, through it I fly

I’ve seen the stars disappear in the sun The shooting’s easy if you’ve got the right gun And even though I’m sitting waiting for Mars I don’t believe there’s any future in cause

Hole in the sky, gateway to heaven Window in time, through it I fly Yeah

I’ve watched the dogs of war enjoying their feast I’ve seen the western world go down in the east The food of love became the greed of our time But now I’m living on the profits of pride
