Track Name: The Awakening
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
Track Name: Russian Jig
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
Track Name: Mr. Potato Head
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.
Track Name: Cruella
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
Track Name: Living Death
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
Track Name: Shock the World
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
Track Name: Jim Jones
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
Track Name: Pushed of the Edge
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
