SERIOUS TROUBLE Rumors and whispers that call I could read the writing I could see my name on the wall Let time stand still I need a minute to think 'Cause I ain't thinkin' at all I'm driving down your road The path of self-destruction Totally out of control (Chorus) I'm in trouble Serious trouble I'm in trouble Serious trouble Visions and nightmares abound I can feel it coming Danger closing in all around Let time stand still I need to find a way out That is, if one can be found I'm driving down the road Blaze a path of self-destruction Totally out of control (Repeat Chorus) And I'm in trouble Serious trouble I'm in trouble Serious trouble People, they gossip and lie Damn you if you do it Damn you if you don't even try Let time stand still That's just the way that it is There ain't no need to ask why I'm driving down the road Burn a path of self-destruction Screwed up and out of control (Repeat Chorus) And I'm in trouble Serious trouble I'm in trouble Serious trouble ________________________________ TURN OF THE SCREW It's a great task to master The children of bastards Reward them or scorn them It's now you must warn them Don't you run I turn and face you At the turn of the screw Voices surround you There no one to turn to You're facing the evil But no one's believing you Got to run! I turn and face you At the turn of the screw Turn of the screw Turn of the screw Don't tell me it's helpless This blood oath to Jesus The pain and the suffering The truth is now numbing I've got to run I'm crazy, it's true At the turn of the screw Turn of the screw Turn of the screw Turn of the screw Turn of the screw

JUDGEMENT DAY Time stops I'm looking out my room I see the white flash And feel the hands of doom They've come to take me They'll take you all as well Come feel the white heat And take your place in hell Judgement day Get on your knees and pray Judgement day There's no time left No time for lengthy prayers No time for loved ones To say how much they care Just take a good look Look at the price you paid It's such a steep cost Now, slip into the grave Judgement day There's nothing left to say Judgement day Chains on your body A price on your head You wish that you were But you're already dead Judgement day Time to pay the very heavy toll Judgement day The devil laid the bounty on your soul Cold sweat Won't cool Gehenna's flame You smell the burnt flesh You can't escape the chains on your body The price on your head You wish that you were But you're already dead Judgement day, Time to pay the very heavy toll Judgement day The devil laid the bounty on your soul Judgement day The long decay, the old, eternal blaze Judgement day Now tick away the countless neverending days

DEVIL IS LOOSE She's no angel She's no stranger to the noise She loves the noise She likes to raise hell When she's out rockin' with the boys She wants you, deep inside She's gonna eat you alive Lock up your heart Bolt it down tight The devil is loose tonight She gets too close run for your life The devil is loose to tonight She's got the power Like a dancer on the stage Midnight hour She's got you crazy, in a rage On a rampage She locks on and won't let go You're good as dead, you know (Repeat Chorus) Lock up your heart Bolt it down tight The devil is loose tonight She gets too close Run for your life The devil is loose tonight She don't want nothin’ that a smile can buy She won't be happy as your friend She'll talk of paradise and tell you lies And when she offers you her flesh It's the beginning of the end Those who know her They're going to tell you stay away Sinking lower You'll want to meet her anyway And when you do, you'll regret the day (Repeat Chorus) Lock up your heart Bolt it down tight The devil is loose tonight She gets too close Run for your life The devil is loose tonight Lock up your heart Bolt it down tightly The devil is loose tonight She gets too close Run for your life The devil is loose tonight

OUT FOR BLOOD I heard noise in the streets They were gnashing their teeth They were swearing and cursing And smacking their fists off the ground They were mad as could be 'Cause the man on TV Said the taxes were going up And the wages down And they've had enough And they're out for blood When times get tough They're out for blood They were snapping the bones In the pockets and zones From the minute the whistle blew To the closing gun They don't need any reason It's the end of the season And the second best Must now face number one And they've had enough And they're out for blood It's getting rough And they're out for blood Were the children you raised And you taught us to pray And you washed us And dressed us And fed us and kept us warm Now the starving oppressed Look to us in the west But we just turn our heads And pretend they were never born But they do exist And they're out for blood They're pretty pissed And they're out for blood Muzzles flashing chaos crashing Suicide attacks they're out for blood Bridges burning world keeps turning Better watch your back They're out for blood

Why Now 05:54
WHY NOW Did I lose you Or did I let you go? That's the question But I just don't know All the answers For what I feel inside It's a mystery No matter how I try I've been thinking about you And the things that you said And how you swear that you'll be true If I just take you back And give you one more try You will spend your life devoted To my dream come true Why now do you try To give me what I need after all this time And how can you deny If I take you back you'll hurt me again So I've made up my mind This time I leave you behind I remember How I held you near All the passion That I felt I in here Well, they were good times They were the best I had But the good times Could not undo the bad There were nights that you left me To go out on your own And you said you won't be long But as the hours went by I had to wonder why You were coming home with strangers At the break of dawn (Repeat Chorus) Why now do you try To give me what I need After all this time And how can you deny If I take you back You'll hurt me again So I made up my mind This time I leave you behind I swear the hardest part Has been getting through the loneliness Since I'm out on my own It doesn't make no sense To be missing you the way I do When I know you're wrong What the hell is going on? Why now? Tearing out my heart. Why now? Walk out the door Why now? Rip it all apart Why now? Spill it on the floor Why now? Why now? Why now?

MISGUIDED YOUTH Misguided youth Stand or fall We'll rock them all Got my neck in a tight nose Such a struggle to cut it loose Better change my life before I fall My obligations entangle me The complications could strangle me And it's hard to hear the voices when they call But I don't want to hear your laughter I don't want to see you anymore You hold me down Don't hold me down I see my future in flashes My life will crumble to ashes Gonna fade itself away like a passing storm And I don't want to hear your laughter I don't wanna see you anymore Misguided youth. The time has come to know the truth Misguided youth And we are all misguided youth In my search for the real truth I'm labeled as a misguided youth Whose delusion is a product of the times They never did seem to understand That I was never the common man And they forget this only chance at life is mine And i don't want to hear your laughter I don't want to see you anymore Misguided youth The time has come to know the truth Misguided youth And we are all misguided youth Don't want to hear your laughter Don't want to see you anymore I saw my father work his life away Always searching for that pot of gold I felt the emptiness and shared the pain And now you point me down that same damn road Misguided youth ... The time has come to know the truth Misguided youth That we are not misguided youth Misguided youth The time has come to learn the truth The time has come so turn me loose The time has come for misguided youth

DON'T GET MAD Vengeance is mine, says the Lord Yahweh in heaven holds sway When one among us must die Who here among us can say? But when the tough guys come To push around the meek They send you crashing to the floor You read your good book And you turn the other cheek But they come slashing back for more Don't get mad Get even You gave your lover the best You gave her all that you had You put your heart on the line Taking the good with the bad But then you catch her As she stumbles through a lie The shock just knocks you off your feet You'd like to kill her But you settle for goodbye And throw her baggage in the street Don't get mad Get even Don't get mad Give it all you have And just get even It's an eye for an eye and a tooth for s tooth The ancient universal truth Don't get mad Jesus, the savior of man Hung on the cross for the day Paid for the sinners at hand Time for the sinners to pay And when those madmen Drive their armies cross our lines And hide their bombs upon our planes They're holding hostages Accusing us of crimes And many innocent are slain Don't get mad Get even Don't get mad Give it all you have and just get even Don't get mad Push the god-damned button and get even

Third Rail 03:43
THIRD RAIL Subway locations A haven for those on the run Tiles are gleaming The steel wheels are screaming for fun Third rail's the hot rail You touch it you've seen your last trail Beneath thee, come see As I dance on the rails without fail It's crazy, you say With the lights in your eyes Steel wheels they grind on the track They wager above you You're damned if you fail For dancing upon the third rail Heaven, they say lies above the subway Hell lies below on the tracks The tracks are red hot The coins you can drop say who's next? The odd's five to one That the next time you're done Place your bets Bookmakers screaming While drunks lie there bleeding to death I dance on the third rail I hear them all say "Watch your step!" It's crazy, you say With the lights in your eyes Steel wheels they grind on the track. They wager above you You're damned if you fail For dancing upon the third rail. The Bowery boys say That's the game they all play Touch the third rail you'll end the DTs. The skid row attetests It's the fastest way yet Touch the third rail you'll end up in Hell Third rail...... Third rail....... Third rail.......

INNOCENT DREAMER Sleeping waiting to awake A moment of passion created me today Dreaming a soul they will forsake When the passion turns to fear And a desperate decision is sweeping me away. Now the warmth I've been feeling is turning to ice And the darkest of thoughts are my last I kick at the terror and try to hold on But the blackness is closing in fast And the mother seeks her child But her baby is not there For her baby was a burden That she once refused to bear So she robbed him of his life And she silenced all his dreams Now her life is haunted with the guilt That time cannot redeem Oh, I hear the screams of The innocent dreamer. Who might you be? Innocent dreamer, You might have been me Another soul has captured death Without the chance to live For apologies and second thoughts That she never stopped to give And another silenced voice Whose dreams will never be Denied a chance to fight for life In a world too blind to see Oh, don't look at me It's the innocent dreamer, Who could you be? Innocent dreamer You could have been me I look inside me And I think I see A little innocent dreamer in me Another nightmare wrecks her dreams As the sweat pours from her brow She awakens to her screams And all the pain she's feeling now 'Cause she's loveless and alone And she hangs her head to cry She feels the sting of bitter tears That only babies dry Too late to ask why It's the innocent dreamer Who might you be? Innocent dreamer You might have been me I thank my mother, And I'm glad she'd seen The innocent dreamer in me

The Hard Way 03:42
THE HARD WAY It was easy to so I quit school Now I spend my time I'm playin' the fool Man, I'm up at five got to tow the line Break my back just to stay alive! My head is spinnin' I don't know where I am. You know I'm up, down, in, out I don't know which way to go I run in circles like a dog on a chain And where the hell I'm goin' God only knows! The hard way! Ain't got no college Don't need no suit and tie No quest for knowledge Just do crack 'til you die No time to study Or to make future plans You walk the city With a gun in your hands You think you're bad When you're walkin' that line The hard way's tougher When you're doin' hard time You got a limo And you ride in the back You cruise the schoolyards Just to pass out the crack You make your money getting everyone high You make your living watching everyone die You think you're bad When you're walkin' that line The hard way's tougher When you're doin' hard time The hard way's tougher When you're doin' hard time

SHIP TO SHORE My fate, it lies at sea Above the ocean green Ships with sails so tall Pull the winds in full As my ship I steer Destiny appears Upon your shore tonight Make me feel alright I'm calling, ship to shore Won't you come on board? We'll sail into the night Together for all time Girl, we'll live our lives Through storm or paradise Hand in hand with you Beneath a sky of blue If a storm appears We must face our fears Would you stand by me For God above to see I'm calling, ship to shore Won't you come on board? We'll steal into the night Together for all time Put your hand in mine I'm calling, ship to shore Calling, ship to shore
