Lute FP A dash of Motorhead, a sprinkle of early Motley Cru and a whole lotta girl-punk-rock. Apparently put out in the mid-80s and just re-issued, I believe this is a compilation of a demo and debut album. You can hear the grittier sound of the demo, which in fact I think I prefer. Cool rockin' music.

Roland Don Doom Take a seat in the time-machine and go back to the year 1985 for some old shool D.C. doom metal with a female singer!

Track Name: Last Chance
Last Chance
Words C. Bacon Music A. Morris.

You’re diggin’ your grave
And you don’t care
You don’t care if you’re dyin’
You don’t care if the world stands still
Cause soon you’ll be left there crying

(Chorus)
Because everything you want
You can’t obtain
Even if it strikes your desire
Everything you want is all in vain
Now you want to admire


???? and you don’t see
You don’t see who stands behind you
You better not leave without a look
There’ll be no one left to find you

(Repeat Chorus x2)

The days are turning into nights
The bright days are behind you
You better not leave without a look
There’ll be no where left to find you
I told you once and I’ve told you twice
Don’t take it all for granted
Now this is your last chance my friend
Your last chance on the planet

(Repeat Chorus)
Track Name: Prophet of Doom
Prophet of Doom
Music and lyrics N. Lawson, Decomposed Music.


Try to take a look inside your empty mind
What you discover might scare you to death
Take a little time, take a trip with me
Prophet of doom’s gonna make you see
You’re ridin’ on a coaster
You’re spinning on your bed
The way you live honey
You’d be better off dead
You’d be better off dead

I don’t see you, you can’t see me
I won’t be caught in your demise
It was too late, eyes could see
Prophet’s getting closer

Listening to your lies
Never, never, never
Never will you find
Ignorance, Idiocy
In your empty mind
You got an empty mind
Yearn, turning, burning
Skin rots away
The prophet was calling
But death just turns away
I can out run the prophet of doom
I can’t see from the bodies of decay
I can’t overcome this feeling of gloom
Nuclear explosion is going to blow us all away

(Repeat)

I don’t see you, you can’t see me
I won’t be caught, in your demise
It was too late, eyes could see
The prophet’s getting closer now
Licking at your thighs

Never, never, never
Never will you find

The ignorance and the idiocy
In your empty mind
You got an empty mind

Yearn, turning, burning
Skin rots away
The prophet was calling
But death just turns away
Try to take a look inside your empty mind
What you discover might scare you to death
Take a little time, take a trip with me
Prophet of doom won’t wait you see

You’re spinning on your bed
The way you live honey,
You’d be better off dead
You’d be better off dead
Track Name: Black Widow
Black Widow
Words C. Bacon Music A. Morris.

My momma she was a sacrifice
And my father he’s a beast
And I have no use for anyone
Well someone call the priest
The Priest he came runnin’
He wants to save my wicked soul
I feel the footsteps closing in
And I see the darkness gone

I know you feel dread
As I spin my web
I spin all this flesh
It’s my last request
Black Widow
Yeah Black Widow

I’m the daughter of darkness
You know it feels alright
I’m the daughter of darkness
I only come out at night

I know you feel dread
As I spin my web
I spin only flesh
It’s my last request
Black Widow
Yeah Black Widow

(Repeat)
Track Name: Morbid Fascination
Morbid Fascination

Words and music N. Lawson, Decomposed Music.

When fascination takes you
And leads you to the door
You wonder if your mind can survive
You bring the violence to the floor
And when the beginning is near
At the end only fear

You take it all away
A silent ritual play
You’re cryin’ in the dark
You must pass the silent scream

And of course I never
Never could find a way
Life’s blood flows so easily
At the end of a perfect day

You take it all away
A silent ritual play
You’re cryin’ in the dark
You must pass the silent scream

The unspoken rage
Take a curious step down
They’re laughing at you
They seem to think they’ve found
Someone they can push off
Someone to take the blame
Ah what’s one more head
… More or less
They all come off the same

You cannot take advantage
There’s no place left to run
And one day you’ll pay
You’re gonna pay for all your fun
So when the bloodletting happens
And I know that it will
Some place the band will like
Finally, deadly, still

So the fascination takes you
Some place far away
Life’s blood flows so easily
At the end of a perfect day
Track Name: No Recourse
No Recourse- The End

Words and Music N. Lawson Decomposed Music.

So now you’re telling me
You don’t really want to get involved
And how twisted your lifeseems
And how the whole world
Around you really revolves
I guess you knocked me down a few pegs
Well I guess you think you really got it all

Well that was it, it was the end
You took me for a fool
And I took you in the end
Love can burn a long time
Relationships don’t last
When mistakes are made
You know the die is cast
That was it, it was the end honey

No recourse
But you’re going all the way
No recourse
Because I don’t want to play
Nothing left
I’ve nothing to say
No recourse
Try another day
No recourse, no recourse

There was a time
Well I guess I knew it allalong
I felt you slipping
I knew I couldn’t keep you hangin’ on
How wasted my life seems
When everything keeps going down
down

Well that was it, it was the end
You took me for a fool
And I took you in the end
Love can burn a long time
Relationships don’t last
When mistakes are made
You know the die is cast
That was it, it was the end honey

No recourse
But you’re going all the way
No recourse
Because I didn’t come to play
Nothing left
There’s nothing to say
No recourse
Try another day
No recourse
And there’s no chance ofremorse

So now you’re telling me
You don’t really want to get involved
And how twisted your life seems
And how the whole world
Around you really revolves
I guess you knocked me down afew pegs
Well I guess you think youreally got it all
I got a surprise for you prick

Well that was it, it was the end
You took me for a fool
And I took you in the end
Love can burn a long time
Relationships don’t last
When mistakes are made
You know the die is cast
That was it, it was the endhoney
Track Name: Can't Close Your Eyes
CAN’T CLOSE YOUR EYES

Words and Music N. Lawson, Decomposed Music.

You can’t close your eyes
And you can’t sleep tonight
You’re running scared honey
Cuz you know I’ll be outta sight

You took your chains of love
And wrapped them tight around me
But surprise little lady
I took a chance and now I’m free

Never gonna put a chain on me
Not a chance when I wanna be free
Never gonna get me
Under your lock and key

(Chorus)
Can’t close your eyes
Can’t close your eyes
I’ll be slippin’ away
I’ll be gone today

You never, never gave me
… bitch
Never gave me what I need
I gave you a warning honey
But you didn’t pay no heed

Pay off is coming bitch
I found a few new friends
Style of playing changed
But I always get it in the end

Chorus

I’m cruising round the same old ground again
I know what I want and I’ll pay for it in the end
Like a finely tuned machine
I need to keep myself on the run
Head splitting open
Brains boiling in the sun

(Repeat Chorus)
Track Name: Too Much, Too Soon
Too much, too soon
Words C. Bacon Music A. Morris

Well you’re so fast
You can’t grab hold
A flash of lightening
And the stories told
You’re all-night Saturday
Didn’t last long
You better take a chance
Even if it’s wrong

It’s too much, too soon
Next stop
It’s gonna be the moon
Too much and it’s too soon
This time I think we all lose

In place of dreams your
nightmare glow
Telling secrets you don’t know

It’s too much, it’s too soon
Next stop
it’s gonna be the moon
Too much and it’s too soon
This time I think we all lose

Never trust in words they say
Because on your mind they’ll surely play
Your mind is screaming to be free
Insane is what you fear you’ll be

It’s all too much
It’s too soon
Next stop
It’s gonna be the moon
Too much, it’s way too soon
Next time you lose
Track Name: Dismembered
Dismembered

Words and Music N. Lawson, Decomposed Music.

Hey, never felt like this
Lifeless, has your last poor kiss
Awaked to a brand new day
There’s nothing
Nothing left to say
Well I found out
My end’s in sight
Dismembered
Got nothing to hide

Well I’m able to see right through ya
The mind games played by you
Brace yourself, I’ve gotsomething more
This time I’m gonna settle the score
Cities crumble to the dust
People killing with unknown lust
Awaked to a brand new day
I’ve got nothing, nothing left to say
Because I found out I’m empty inside
Dismembered, got nothing to hide
Well I’m able to see rightthrough
All those mind games played by you
I say brace yourself, I got something new
This time I’m going to settle my score with you

I’m able to see right through
All the mind games played by you
Brace yourself, I’ve got some more
This time I plan to settle my score
Cities crumble to the dust
People killing with unknown lust
Awaken to a brand new day
Pain, sorrow, got nothing today
Yeah I found out I’m empty inside
Dismembered, I got nothing to hide
Track Name: Reason to Live
Reason to Live

Words and Music N. Lawson, Decomposed Music.

I’m lonely
But it’s the way I live my life
You know I’ve been crying
I got too much
I’ve got too much pride
Live fast, die young
So much
I’ve got no time for anyone

You gave me a reason to live
You saved me with a reason to live
You showed me a reason to live
You gave me, you gave me everything

I’ve been fighting all of my life
You know I’ve been losing
No words to describe the way that I feel
I know right now I’ve got everything
Why don’t you show me?
My life can take on meaning
Track Name: Burnt Offering
Burnt Offerings

Words C. Bacon Music N. Lawson, Decomposed Music.

Take a look around you
Tell me what you see
What you got to offer
What are you offering me?
Time is on my side
So that is what they say
If time is on my side
Then why do I feel so dead
Ain’t looking for nothing
To be handed to me
I don’t want nothing
Because nothing’s never free

(Chorus)
Burnt offerings
Is all I ever get
Burnt offerings
Is all I ever see
That’s all you’re giving to me

(Repeat Chorus)

You’re ticket for the freeway
It was a one way ride
A place for non believers
I can’t bother what they say
The winds are coming fast now
My eyes are playing tricks
That’s how I get my kicks

(Repeat chorus}
Track Name: Exterminence
Exterminence

Words C. Bacon Music N. Lawson, Decomposed Music.

Beware the children, we’re not the power
We’ve grown old in this stone cold tower
In full swing, a revolution
In a world where there is no solution
The messages is clear, your time is near
You’ve got nothing left, not even fear

Let me wake up in someone else’s dream
Things aren’t always what they seem to be
He’s taken your mind, he set you free

Helter Skelter it seems right
You’re wondering wild on hot summer night
You swim in blood, that’s what they say
You seeking vengeance sounds of the dead
There is no sentence to cure their ills
They’re already dead, nothing left to kill

Let me wake up in someone else’s dream
Things aren’t always what they seem to be
You take your life, and then you’ll be free

Beware the children, we’re not the power
We’ve grown old in this stone cold tower
In full swing, a revolution
In a world where there is no solution
The messages is clear, your time is near
You’ve got nothing left, not even fear

Let me wake up in someone else’s dream
Things aren’t always what they seem to be
He’s taken my life, he set me free
Track Name: You're Crying Now
You’ Crying Now

Words and music N. Lawson, Decomposed Music.

Remember the night
That you turned me out
The things you did honey
Made me scream and shout
You took my love
And turned it inside out

I told you then
That I liked to play rough
I took a look at you
You don’t seem too tough
Somehow I knew
You were real hard stuff

(Chorus)
You’re cryin
You’re cryin’ now
You’re cryin
You’re cryin’ now
You’re cryin
You’re cryin’ now
You’re cryin
You’re cryin’ now

Yeah I was game
When you called it love
You were so cool
You fit like a glove
But I didn’t break
When it came to shove
You came back selling
But ain’t buyin’
I got a dead ear
When it comes to your lyin’
Somehow I knew
You’d comeback crying

(Repeat Chorus)
Track Name: Taking Me Down
Taking Me Down

Words and music N. Lawson, Decomposed Music.

Lying, stealing,
Lies told with no feeling
You’re pulling me down
Dragging me down
You’re taking, not giving
My life is not worth living
You’re pulling me down
Dragging me down
Lying, stealing
Lies told with no feeling
You’re pulling me down
Dragging me down
Taking, not giving
My life is not worth living
You’re pulling me down
Dragging me down

I don’t know why
You like tearing me down
Spending your whole life
Dragging me down
I don’t know why
You love taking me down
Spending your whole life
Just dragging me down

Falling not landing
You’re habit to demanding
You’re pushing me down
Dragging me down
Too long, your way
Go away, I’m afraid it’s too late
You’re pushing me down
Dragging me down
Falling, not landing
You’re life is to demanding
You’re pushing me down
Dragging me down
Too long, your way
I won’t pray it’s too late
You’re pushing me down
Dragging me down

(Repeat Chorus)
Track Name: Fortress
Fortress

Words and Music N. Lawson, Decomposed Music.

Alone I set in my castle in the sky
Cold black darkness is the night
I’m by myself in my fortress
It’s all wrong, I nothing’s right
And I can’t take all this loneliness
Following me although my life

Oh how I’m missing your sweet
Sweet caress
You took it all, you took my life
The years creep by and dying
But my heart is hurtin’ still
I had it all but I let it get away
Crying eyes, I’ve got shattered will
Track Name: You Never Stop
You Never Stop

Why you never stop, I’ll never know
It’s useless crying, I can’t let go.
I listen to reason, I must be insane
Because I’ll never win at your little game
You’re always changing the rules all around
I can’t give up, you’re all over town
There’s no explaining
I don’t need to know why
I don’t want to keep you
I don’t want to cry

How long can we keep on changing our parts
You’re ripping my mind, tearing my heart
You say you love me, but I’ll never know
What’s inside you, you’re getting so cold

3x – You never stop

Running your course you said that it’s true
It’s all up and down, it’s falling on you
You don’t really know me, you never will
You don’t give a damn, it’s part of the thrill

If there was a chance if only a way
I’d take you in, I’d make you pay
And then when you’re changing, you’re turning your head
I don’t care if you’re living or dead

Why you never stop, I’ll never know
You’re reaching for something, don’t let it show
It’s coming down, it’s moving so fast
Next thing you know, you’ll be part of my past

3x – You never stop

Lead
Repeat first verse
Track Name: Forever and a Day
Forever and a Day

Words and Music N. Lawson, Decomposed Music.

Within the joy of earthly pleasures
Problems may arise
Your guilt is all consuming
You don’t see it with your eyes
Still you satisfy your hunger
A forbidden path you’ll stray
You cannot hide all your lies
Forever and a day

Many people talk of God as love
But their actions prove a lie
I know I believe in something
But the questions fill my mind
If only I could talk to you
And set my questions free
To wonder is a waste of my life
Just give my soul the key

Justifying homicide
There is a reason for the kill
I could probably do it myself
If I only had the will
Until I satisfy my hunger
I’d let passion lead me away
And I’d be one within your world
Forever and a day

You know I never really had a doubt
As to which way you’d go
It didn’t really take much thought
Somehow I seemed to know
You always said do what you want
You’re going to anyway
You left no room for changing,
Forever and a day
