Battery

Lashing out the action returning the reaction.
Weak are ripped and torn away.
Hypnotizing power crushing all that cower.
Battery is here to stay.

Smashing through the boundaries.
Lunacy has found me.
Cannot stop the battery.
Pounding out agression.
Turns into obsession.
Cannot kill the battery.
Cannot kill the family.
Battery is found in me.
Battery Battery!.

Crushing all deceivers mashing nonbelievers.
Never ending potency.
Hungry violence seeker feeding off the weaker.
Breeding on insanity.

Smashing through the boundaries.
Lunacy has found me.
Cannot stop the battery.
Pounding out agression.
Turns into obsession.
Cannot kill battery.
Cannot kill the family.
Battery is found in me.
Battery Battery!.

Circle of destruction hammer comes crushing.
Powerhouse of energy.
Whipping up a fury dominating flurry.
We create the battery.

Smashing through the boundaries.
Lunacy has found me.
Cannot stop the battery.
Pounding out agression.
Turns into obsession.
Cannot kill the battery.
Cannot kill the family.
Battery is found in me.
Battery Battery....


Master of Puppets

End of passion play crumbling away.
I'm your source for self-destruction.
Veins that pump with fear sucking darkness clear.
Leading on your death's contstruction.

Taste me you will see.
More is all you need.
Dedicated to.
How I'm killing you.

Come crawling faster.
Obey your master.
Your life burns faster.
Obey your master master.

Master of puppets I'm pulling your strings.
Twisting your mind and smashing your dreams.
Blinded byme you can't see a thing.
Just call my name cause I'll hear you scream.
Master master.
Just call my name cause I'll hear you scream.
Master master.

Needlework the way never you betray.
Life of death becoming clearer.
Pain monopoly ritual misery.
Chop your breakfast on a mirror.

Taste me you will see.
More is all you need.
Dedicated to.
How I'm killing you.

Come crawling faster.
Obey your master.
Your life burns faster.
Obey your master master.

Master of puppets I'm pulling your strings.
Twisting your mind and smashing your dreams.
Blinded by me you can't see a thing.
Just call my name cause I'll hear you scream.
Master master.
Just call my name cause I'll hear you scream.
Master master master master.

Master master where's the dreams that I've been after?.
Master master promised only lies.
Laughter laughter all I hear or see is laughter.
Laughter laughter laughing at my cries.
Kick some ass.

Hell is worth all that natural habitat.
Just a rhyme without a reason.
Never-ending maze drift on numbered days.
Now your life is out of season.

I will occupy.
I will help you die.
I will run through you.
Now I rule you too.

Come crawling faster.
Obey your master.
Your life burns faster.
Obey your master master.

Master of puppets I'm pulling your strings.
Twisting your mind and smashing your dreams.
Blinded by me you can't see a thing.
Just call my name cause I'll hear you scream.
Master master.
Just call my name cause I'll hear you scream.
Master master.


The Thing That Should Not Be

Messenger of fear in sight.
Dark deception kills the light.
Hybrid children watch the sea.
Pray for father roaming free.

Fearless wretch insanity.
He watches lurking beneath the sea.
Great old one forbidden site.
He searches hunter of the shadows is rising.
Immortal in madness you dwell.

Crawling chaos underground.
Cult has summoned twisted sound.
Out from ruins once possessed.
Fallen city living death.

Fearless wretch insanity.
He watches lurking beneath the sea.
Timeless sleep has been upset.
He awakens hunter of the shadows is rising.
Immortal in madness you dwell.

Not dead which eternal lie.
Stranger eons death may die.
Drain you of your sanity.
Face the thing that should not be.

Fearless wretch insanity.
He watches lurking beneath the sea.
Great old one forbidden site.
He searches hunter of the shadows is rising.
Immortal in madness you dwell.


Welcome Home (Sanitarium)

Welcome to where time stand still.
No one leaves and no one will.
Moon is full never seems to change.
Just labeled mentally deranged.
Dream the same thing every night.
I see our freedom in our sight.
No locked doors no windows barred.
No things to make my brain seem scarred.

Sleep my friend and you will see.
The dream is my reality.
They keep me locked up in this cage.
Can't they see it's why my brain says rage.

Sanitarium leave me be.
Sanitarium just leave me alone.

Build my fear of what's out there.
Cannot breathe the open air.
Whisper things into my brain.
Assuring me that I'm insane.
They think our heads are in thier hands.
But violent use brings violent plans.
Keep him tied it makes him well.
He's getting better can't you tell?.

No more can they keep us in.
Listen dammit we will win.
They see it right they see it well.
But they think that saves us from our hell.

Sanitarium leave me be.
Sanitarium just leave me alone.
Sanitarium just leave me alone.

Fear of living on.
Natives getting restless now.
Mutiny in the air.
Got some death to do.
Mirror stares back hard.
Kill it's such a friendly word.
Seems the only way.
For reaching out again.


Disposable Heroes

Bodies fill the fields I see.
Hungry heroes end.
No one to play soldier now.
No one to pretend.
Running blind through killing fields.
Bred to kill them all.
Victim of what said should be.
A servant till I fall.

Solier boy made of clay.
Now an empty shell.
Twenty-one only son.
But he served us well.
Bred to kill not to care.
Do just as we say.
Finished here greetings death.
He's yours to take away.

Back to the front.
You will do what I say when I say.
Back to the front.
You will die when I say you must die.
Back to the front.
You coward you servant you blindman.

Barking of machine-gun fire.
Does nothing to me now.
Sounding of the clock that ticks.
It used to win somehow.
More a man more stripes you wear.
Glory seeker trends.
Bodies fill the fields I see.
The slaughter never ends.

Soldier boy made of clay.
Now an empty shell.
Twenty-one only son.
But he served us well.
Bred to kill not to care.
Do just as we say.
Finished here greetings death.
He's yours to take away.

Back to the front.
You will do what I say when I say.
Back to the front.
You will die when I say you must die.
Back to the front.
You coward you servant you blindman.

Why am I dying?.
Kill have no fear.
Lie live off lying.
Hell hell is here.

I was born for dying.

Life planned out before my birth.
Nothing could I say.
Had no chance to see myself.
Molded day by day.
Looking back I realize.
Nothing have I done.
Left to die with only friend.
Alone I clench my gun.

Soldier boy made of clay.
Now an empty shell.
Twenty-one only son.
But he served us well.
Bred to kill not to care.
Do just as we say.
Finished here greetings death.
He's yours to take away.

Back to the front.
You will do what I say when I say.
Back to the front.
You will die when I say you must die.
Back tot he front.
You coward you servant you blindman.
Back tot he front!.


Leper Messiah

Spineless from the start.
Sucked into the part.
Circus comes to town.
You play the lead clown.
Please please spreading his disease living by his story.
Knees knees falling to your knees suffer for his glory.
You will.

Time for lust time for lie.
Time to kiss your life goodbye.
Send me money send me green.
Heaven you will meet.
Make a contribution and you'll get the better seat.
Bow to leper messiah.

Marvel at his tricks.
Need your Sunday fix.
Blind devotion came.
Rotting your brain.
Chain chain join the endless chain taken by his glamour.
Fame fame infection is the game stinking drunk with power.
We see.

Time for lust time for lie.
Time to kiss your life goodbye.
Send me money send me green.
Heaven you will meet.
Make a contribution and you'll get the better seat.
Bow to leper messiah.

Witchery weakening.
Sees the sheep are gathering.
Set the trap hypnotize.
Now you follow.

Time for lust time for lie.
Time to kiss your life goodbye.
Send me money send me green.
Heaven you will meet.
Make a c.
ontribution and you'll get the better seat.
Lie...!.


Orion

Instrumental


Damage Inc.

Dealing out the agony within.
Charging hard and no one's going to give in.
Living on your knees conformity.
Or dying on your feet for honesty.
Inbred our bodies work as one.
Bloody but never cry submission.
Following our instincts not a trend.
Go against the grain until the end.

Blood will follow blood.
Dying time is here.
Damage incorporated.

Slamming through don't fuck with razorback.
Stepping out? you'll feel our hell on your back.
Blood follows blood and we make sure.
Life ain't for you and we're the cure.
Honesty is my only excuse.
Try to rob us of it but it's no use.
Steamroller action crushing all.
Victim is your name and you shall fall.

Blood follows blood.
Dying time is here.
Damage Incorporated.

We chew and spit you out.
We laugh you scream and shout.
All flee with fear you run.
You'll know just where we come from.
Damage Incorporated.

Damage jackals ripping right through you.
Sight and smell of this it gets me going.
Know just how to get just what we want.
Tear it from your soul in nightly hunt.
Fuck it all and fucking no regrets.
Never happy endings on these dark sets.
All's fair for damage inc. you see.
Step a little closer if you please.

Blood will follow blood.
Dying time is here.
Damage Incorporated.
