In Time 02:19
IN TIME I seek the wizard That carries the light Down to the Earth Through the shadows In darkness he stands In back of the moon Yet I know that he can free me The deadly white light That pierces the night Can it reveal the answer? Possessor of all, the spirit of life I seek the magician of time Magician of time Magician of time Show me the magician of time (Repeat Verse) The spirit that brought me To this edge of my life I seek the magician of time When up through the black I see through to the light To find the magician in me I am the magician of time Magician of time I am the magician of time!
BEYOND BELIEF Everything you are What you plan to be You go forth and see What you can’t see Then they watch you And do what you should do Wait around til’ You are finally through Come with me I speak of death and glory You will see I’ve got what you’re after It was me And I’ll tell the story Then you run This has gone beyond Imagination come Entertaining me I’m convincing you So convincingly It was in the cards Destiny is due You can run But they will come after you When the time runs out Is the final quest Who will judge you? When you did your best Did it just to win And now you get the prize They will find you Drowning in all your lies! Headin’ east, Search for what you’re after Lost the race But you found your master You’ll survive Now you know the story All is lost This has gone beyond This has gone beyond belief!
Bat's Breath 04:28
BAT'S BREATH A princess rises From the kingdom of death Back again Destined to make you bleed Dutchess of darkness Swoops down on her prey She’s gonna taste your blood Tonight yes indeed Unpure, unrighteous, And her wants, unsatisfied Gluttonous bitch Her drive is vicious greed And as you smell the carnage Seep from her lips By now you know The bat’s been freed Cruella black, artery attack She’ll sink her fangs into ya Cruella’s back, she’s on the attack You never know what she’ll do to ya Tonight’s the night She’s ready to bite And now the bitch is on you Summon the priest It’s the night of the beast And now she’ll feast upon you! She sees the glow Out on the eastern sky Wicked bitch knows That it’s her time to go Back to the tomb Where she first copped her kicks Evil turns her on, I mean You don’t want to know Again she hungers for The taste of warm blood Her feast consists of you Who don’t want to know? So hold on tight to your crucifix She’s swift and silent And you’re way too slow So now you know why You’re afraid of the dark And evil follows you Wherever you go Mystery stalks you Around every turn And then you face your fate, When the blood starts to flow She looks so good but yet She’s so damn bad Her transformation Makes it well understood That you bad asses Better change your ways Before you’re sucked bone-dry Right where you stood
Traitor 04:18
TRAITORS Traitors are watching me Try to condemn me with lies They cannot conceal Try to pretend to me To put and end to me The threat of the traitor are real You crouch in your dark place Hiding your real face Searching for something You won’t recognize Insidious, in decay Tearing your life away I tell you traitor I see your disguise (Chorus) I looked out into the night Put my hands out to you Struggled through all the fight In search of you Looked out into the night Put my hands out to you Looked back to the hideous sight To see you turned into a traitor! Traitor. traitor! (Repeat Chorus) Blood lust has killed the beast Come to our final feast You know you slayed the best reveal Were finally laid to rest You know the time has come I was the chosen one Oh yes, it’s time to pay traitor And I’ll say . . .
Devil's Gone 04:42
DEVIL'S GONE It could happen in a bar Or the back seat of a car The devil’s gone inside of you now He don’t care if you grow or cut your hair If you sell your soul, Anton knows In the back streets No matter where you are You can never follow him Cause your too slow on the draw The devil’s gone The devil’s gone! I’m not trying to preach I’ve just got to say Fall down on your knees And sinner start to pray. Salvation is at hand. It’s Babylon again You’ll see complexities Liar! Look out! Here it comes! Restitution is the final solution Listen to me children, you will see No one should care If you grow or cut your hair Jesus did, my friends, take care No mercy for his killing He’s got you in his claws Hypocrite fall back to your crypt Crawl, crawl, crawl Crawl, crawl, crawl! The devil’s gone The devil’s gone Yes, he’s gone

KICKED IN THE ASS You think you know how it feels When your good thing goes bad Then you go back for more To see just how it feels To be kicked in the ass No end in sight! Who’s wrong or right! Too tired to fight! (Kicked in the ass) Then you go back! You see no slack! You try to run! From the kick in the ass! You think you’ve felt all the pain And you’ve had all the shame You try playing their game But every time You get kicked in the ass! You see the light! No wrong or right! Too tired to fight! Then you go back! You see no slack! Then you know how it feels To be kicked in the ass!
FIGHT THE DRAGON Listen to him roar! Gonna even the score Look up into his eyes Mortal man his vapors fry Wizard spells the land of doom Watch me fight the dragon Feel the magic, yeah! He’s mine, the warning sign Suck the marrow from his spine Breaking the spell on the land of doom Watch me fight the dragon! Yeah!
Broken Bones 05:42
BROKEN BONES You’re tearing down my empire Like a storm out of control I put you on a pedestal And you shoved me in a hole Every time I drop my guard Your wicked memories take their toll And all you left me Were my broken bones In a body growin’ cold Oh you shake my mind It’s cryin’ time I can’t see you anymore You had your fun But now it’s done I know you’re rotten to the core I know you’re style So mean and vile Victim of what you had in store. You broke my heart and stole my love Broken bones lay on the floor Now I’m on my own to inspire The rebuilding of my empire Makin myself number one To keep my feelings safe from the fire And a good dose of your own medicine Makes you a slave to my desire Anger lusts for your broken bones And the rage just sends me higher All you women cheatin’, mistreatin’ Your lies come back on you. You took a dare and did not care To see your lies running you through Your time has come, don’t act so dumb Now that your judgment day is due The tables turned and you got burned Broken bones can’t lie for you, baby Again the king in my own empire A refugee from your fork-tongued pain fire No, I won’t be pushed back down By any two-faced sneakin’ liar Have got no use for your childish games Have got no use for your hot hellfire Now I’m free from your misery Your broken bones lay on the pyre
About Face 07:00
ABOUT FACE All right you slimy civilians . . . Out of those racks! Up on your feet Hit the deck Shine your boots Off to chow Gut in, chest out, PT, Drop to your knees, maggot now Head like a ripe peach And bright as a nuclear glow Scared half to death And my mind is just about to blow About face! Thrashing up your life takes place They say it’s for your own good D.I. laughs and winks his eye I’d waste him if I could Looking back to see The government papers that I signed Ninety days of blazing hell And four more years behind Sorry now I didn’t hear What my friends had to say Now I’m a paid lunatic And U.S. all the way Front and center private Don’t look me straight in the eye Forget your mom and your dad ‘Cause you’re mine till you die About face! Just like the Boy Scouts The Eagle will go where you dare Just let me out of this place So I can grow some hair. About face!
