The Awakening Die under gun When the death squad comes It’s too late to run Your life they say Is theirs to keep or piss away And now we’ll see If the world will just stay asleep And now we'll find What kind of men would kill Their own kind When you come to take the pain And sacrifice the gain You might recall Predictions made That show up day to day Arising of Aquarian Is in the awakening When pain and misery Is in the final anarchy They say we don't care And we won't let this nightmare ever end The tanks reek of the dead We'll black the world From this blood that we've shed So dream on what you know As the horsemen ride across the world And those of you who fail to see Are in for a rude awakening And they're too proud to take advice Even at that price The people tried to do what s right For that they had to die The iron fist behind the wall Is in the awakening When pain and misery Is in the final anarchy Die

Russian Jig 03:19
Russian Jig With fear they've won The stronger attacking So keep up your guard Against the Communist Threat The fear of the red It's the same situation Over in Moscow The U.S. is crazy They might drop the bomb They may bomb you yet. (Chorus) Looting and smashing The evil's unleashed And the winner Will take it their way Leaders will sway As the public gets played To the theme of the Russian Jig I've got no use for atomic bombs For all I care We should just give them away We'll give them away That's the kind of talk I hear come from Geneva We’ll all disagree I don't feel that way Yeah I disagree Looting and smashing The evil's unleashed And the winner will Take it their way Leaders will sway As the public gets played To the theme of the Russian Jig The public's been fooled By dozens and dozens it breaks up the power We need it that way Trouble will come When power comes to one So maybe we're better to play The Russian Jig

Mr. Potato Head Every time you talk You got nothing much to say Every time you come around No one wants your ass to stay Every time I think about it I just want to cry If I looked like you I'd just want to die (Chorus) Mr. Potato Head Where are your eyes? Mr. Potato Head Nice disguise Got a million faces And not one's the same Every single day You’re playing just another game Every single word you say is a lie If I was in your shoes I'd just want to die. (Repeat Chorus) Mr. Potato Head Where are your eyes? Mr. Potato Head Nice disguise Listen up now man I got this one thing to say Things will even up in the end And you will have your day Every time I think about it I just want to cry If I looked like you I'd just want to die. (Repeat Chorus) Mr. Potato Head Where are your eyes? Mr. Potato Head Nice disguise Nice disguise Mr. Potato Head Mr. Potato Head Where are your eyes? Mr. Potato Head.

Cruella 03:38
Cruella Well long ago When she was down No one even knew her name All the doctors came to operate Upon her knees she did pray Well they slashed her up Nearly killed the bitch Cruella was this poor thing's name But now she's back to take her revenge The bitch is on the street again (Chorus) Cruella, Cruella The bitch is on the street again If she sees your face You're hers to waste She's come to take her metal revenge Well long ago When we were down You people said you were her friends All you traitors came And the thieves would leave Cruella went half insane But now she's back And she'll kick your ass Cruella will not be denied If she sees your face You’re hers to waste The bitch is out for blood tonight (Repeat Chorus) Cruella is here to stay Cruella is here to stay Cruella, Cruella

Living Death 03:00
The Living Death Illusion masks reality You believe just what you're told You sell yourself and your main goal Is to be bought and sold So life's unfair and you can't cope You put yourself in this place Now you want out But your time has run out You're here, you're here to stay The numbers too great to count The Living Dead No free will, no real life Who are you? The Living Dead Come back into your bundle of sin You’re so afraid to be alive You’re so content and so abused When are you ever satisfied? So life's unfair and you can't cope You never even tried But your life is slaved To dig your own grave You were dead Before you ever died The numbers too great to count The Living Dead No free will no real life Who are you? The Living Dead Among the Living Dead Among the Living Dead

Shock the World So you think I'd fall flat on my face Well I'd get up again And you think I'm sort of disgrace Well that is just the way I am No you won't help me Then help by getting The fuck out of my way I'm right behind you Behind you I will not stay I don't think you quite understand The fear of never knowing And I didn't want to come off too strange I'd hoped it was not showing And I just want to be your friend If that option is still open No you don't have to pretend The answer's written clearly on your face No you won't help me Then help by getting The fuck out of my way I'm right behind you Behind you I will not stay When I find you I'll drop you Right where you stand I'm right behind you This isn't your lucky day So you think you're on top of it now Well you can guess again We’re happening now Let me guess Now you'd like to sign us then 'cause in a flash you know We’ve come and we've gone That’s the nature of this business Now it's my turn to Shock the World

Jim Jones 04:26
Jim Jones Would you be so faithful Staring down the barrel of a gun Would you flock to me if I claimed I was to be the chosen one? Would you lay down and die for my cause if I deemed that so If you would then you'd believe in me Make those checks payable to me Jim Jones And I don't believe you that you would be so fucking dumb And I will bleed you How could you be so faithful with my twisted lies shoved right down your throat? Yes I quoted from the Bible I took that holy word to suit myself Now would you go and kill for my cause If I say, “So let it be done” If you would then you'll go down with me Straight to hell with your friend Jim Jones I am Jim Jones Yeah I know And I don't believe you that you would be so fucking dumb And I will bleed you I didn't want to die alone When you come to that point in your life Where you can't believe your own heart You just remember the tale of Jim Jones And you protect your own self

Pushed Off the Edge When madness came and they took me away Into a dream my life had changed and nothing seemed the same Hear what I said Just like a storm my life turned gray and I felt so far away Locked in my room My mind's deranged and they told me "Boy, you're insane." Could this be true? Have I gone mad? I feel like an animal Caught in a trap Can't I be free? I scream "My God" out loud That voice in my head Makes me feel so strange There’s got to be Some way for me to escape Screams they're not, in my head Screams and I haven't gone mad That voice in my head Makes me feel so strange Could it be I've gone insane? It's all inside my head The voices in my head All I hear is screams Plaguing my brain They drive me insane It's that push off the edge All I hear is screams So take me away I'm no longer sane It's that push off the edge All I hear is screams
