War Pigs / Luke's Wall

Gen'rals gathered in their masses,
Just like witches at black masses
Evil minds that plot destruction,
Sorcerer of death's construction
In the fields the bodies burning,
As the war machine keeps turning
Death and hatred to mankind,
Poisoning their brainwashed minds
Oh Lord Yeah!

Politicians hide themselves away
They only started the war
Why should they go out to fight?
They leave thier role to the poor, yeah

Time will tell on their power minds,
Making war just for fun
Treating people just like pawns in chess,
Wait 'till their judgement day comes, yeah

Now in darkness world stops turning,
Ashes where the bodies burning
No more War Pigs have the power,
And as God has struck the hour
Day of judgement, God is calling
On their knees the war pigs crawling,
Begging mercies for their sins
Satan, laughing, spreads his wings
Oh Lord Yeah!


Finished with my woman 'cause she couldn't help me with my mind
People think I'm insane because I am frowning all the time

All day long I think of things but nothing seems to satisfy,
Think I'll lose my mind if I don't find something to pacify

Can you help me occupy my brain?
Oh yeah

I need someone to show me the things in life that I can't find,
I can't see the things that make true happiness, I must be blind

Make a joke and I will sigh and you will laugh and I will cry
Happiness I can not feel and love to me is so unreal

And so as you hear these words telling you now of my state
I tell you to enjoy life, I wish I could but (it's/I'm) too late

Planet Caravan

We sail through endless skies,
Stars shine like eyes,
the black night sighs
The moon in silver dreams
falls down in beams,
Light of the night
The earth, a purple blaze
of sapphire haze in orbit always

While down below the trees,
bathed in cool breeze,
Silver starlight breaks down from night
And so we pass on by
the crimson (eye / knife)
of great god Mars
as we travel the universe

Iron Man

I am Iron Man!

Has he lost his mind?
Can he see or is he blind?
Can he walk at all
Or if he moves will he fall?
Is he 'live or dead?
(Has he / Icy) thoughts with in his head?
We'll just pass him there,
Why should we even care?

He was turned to steel
in the great magnetic field
When he traveled time
for the future of mankind

Nobody wants him;
He just stares at the world,
Planning his vengeance
that he will soon unfurl

Now the time is here
for Iron Man to spread fear,
Vengeance from the grave
kills the people he once saved

Nobody wants him;
They just turn their heads
Nobody helps him
now he has his revenge

Heavy boots of lead
drills his victims full of dread
Running as fast as they can,
Iron Man lives again

Electric Funeral

Reflex in the sky warn you you're gonna die
Storm comin' you better hide from the atomic tide
Flashes in the sky turns houses into sty
Turns people into clay, radiation minds decay

Robot minds of robot slaves lead them to atomic (grave/rage/rate)
Plastic flowers, melting sun, fading moon falls upon
dying world of radiation, victims of (man/mad) frustration,
burning globe of obscene fire, like electric funeral pyre

Buildings crashing down to what's cracking ground
[Rivers turned to wood]**, ice melting to flood
Earth lies in death bed, clouds cry for the dead
Terrifying rain, ease a burning pain

'lectric Fun'ral
'lectric Fun'ral
'lectric Fun'ral
Electric Fun'ral

And so in the sky shines the electric eye
Supernat'ral king, takes earth under his wing
Heaven's golden chorus sings, Hell's angels flap their wings
Evil souls fall to Hell, ever trapped in burning cell

** Reverse damned to ward

Hand of Doom

What you you gonna do,
Time's caught up with you
Now you wait your turn,
You know there's no return
Take your written rules,
You join the other fools
Turn to something new,
Now it's killing you

First it was the bomb,
Vietnam napalm,
You push the needle in
From life you escape,
Reality's that (way/fade)
Colors in your mind satisfy in time

Oh you you know you must be blind,
To do such things like this,
To take the sleep that you don't know
You're giving Death a kiss
Poor little fool now

Your mind is full of pleasure,
Your BODY's looking ill
To you it's shallow leisure,
So drop the acid pill
Don't stop to think now

You're having a good time baby,
But that won't last,
Your mind's all full of things,
You're living too fast,
Go out enjoy yourself,
Don't bar it in
You need someone to help you
stick the needle in, yeah

Now you know the scene,
Your skin starts turnin' green
Your eyes no longer see life's reality
Push the needle in,
Face Death's sickly grin
Holes are in your skin,
Caused by deadly pin

Head starts spinning 'round,
You fall down to the ground
Feel your body heave,
Death's hand starts to weave
It's too late to turn,
You Don't want to learn
Price of life you hide,
Now You're gonna die

Rat Salad


Fairies Wear Boots

Goin' home late last night,
Suddenly I got a fright
Yeah, I looked through a window and surprise what I saw:
Fairy boots are dancin' with a dwarf
All Right Now!

Yeah Fairies wear boots, and you gotta believe me
Yeah, I saw it, I saw it I tell you no lies
Yeah Fairies wear boots and you gotta believe me
I saw it I saw it with my own two eyes
Woah Right Now!

Yeah Fairies wear boots, and you gotta believe me
Yeah, I saw it, I saw it I tell you no lies
Yeah Fairies wear boots and you gotta believe me
I saw it I saw it with my own two eyes
Alright Now!

So I went to the doctor, see what he could give me
He said, "Son, son you've gone too far,
" 'Cos smokin' an trippin' is all that you do." Yeah

Sweet Leaf

Alright Now!
Won't you listen?

When I first met you, didn't realize,
I can't forget you or your surprise
You introduced me to my mind
And left me wanting you and your kind.
Oh yeah

I love you. Oh, you know it.

My life was empty, forever on a down,
Until you took me, showed me around
My life is free now, my life is (clear / hemp)
I love you sweet leaf though you can't hear
Oh yeah

Alright! Oh yeah-ah!

Oh yeah!
Alright, yeah, yeah, yeah, oh try me out
I love ya sweet leaf, oh

After Forever (Including The Elegy)

Have you ever thought about your soul?
Can it be saved?
Or perhaps you think that when you are dead
  you just stay in your grave.
Is God just a thought within your head
  or is he a part of you?
Is Christ just a name that you read
  in a book when you were in school?

When you think about death do you lose your breath
  or do you keep your cool?
Would you like to see the Pope on the end of a rope?
  Do you think he's a fool?
(Well/Will) I see the truth.
Yes I've seen the light and I've changed my ways.
And I'll be prepared
  when you're lonely and scared at the end of our days.

Could it be you're afraid of what your friends might say
If they knew you believed in God above?
They should realize before they criticize
  that God is the only way to love.

Is your mind so small that you have to fall
In with the pack wherever they run?
Will you still sneer when death is near
And say that you may as well worship the sun.

I think it is true it was people like you that crucified Christ
I think it is sad the opinion you had was the only one voiced.
Will you be so sure when your day is near say you don't believe?
You had the chance but
  you turned it down (now/no) you can't retrieve.

Perhaps you think before you say God is dead and gone
Open your eyes, just realize that he is the one,
The only one who can save you now from all this sin and hate.
Or will you jeer at all you hear?
Yes! I think it's too late.



Children of the Grave

Revolution in their mind, the children start to march
Against the world in which they have to live
And all the hate that's in their hearts
They're tired of being pushed around and told just what to do
They'll fight the world until they've won
and love comes flowing through. Yeah!

Children of tomorrow live in the tears that fall today
Will the sun rise of tomorrow bringing peace in any way?
Must the world live in the shadow of atomic fear?
Can they win the fight for peace or will they disappear? Yeah!

So you children of the world listen to what I say
If you want a better place to live in spread the word today
Show the world that love is still alive you must be brave,
Or you children of today are children of the grave. Yeah!

Children of the Grave
Children of the Grave
Children of the Grave



Lord of this World

You're searching for your mind don't know where to start,
Can't find the key to fit the lock on your heart
You think you know but you are never quite sure,
Your soul is ill but you will not find a cure. Yeah

Your world was made for you by someone above,
But you chose evil ways instead of love
You made me master of the world where you exist,
The soul I took from you was not even missed. Yeah

Lord of this world,
Evil Possessor,
Lord of this world,
He's your confessor now!

You think you're innocent you've nothing to fear,
You don't know me, you say, but isn't it clear?
You turn to me in all your worldly greed and pride,
But will you turn to me when it's your turn to die? Yeah


My name it means nothing
My fortune is less
My future is shrouded in dark wilderness
Sunshine is far away, clouds linger on,
Everything I possess, now they are gone,
they are gone, they are gone

Oh where can I go to and what can I do?
Nothing can please me only thoughts are of you
You just laughed when I begged you to stay
I've not stopped crying since you went away,
you went away, you went away

The world is a lonely place you're on your own
Guess I will go home sit down and moan
Crying and thinking is all that I do,
Memories I have remind me of you,
of you, of you

Into the Void

Rocket engines burning fuel so fast,
Up into the night sky they blast,
Through the universe the engines whine,
Could it be the end of man and time?
Back on earth the flame of life burns low,
Ev'rywhere is misery and woe,
Pollution kills the air, the land and sea,
Man prepares to meet his destiny. Yeah

Rocket engines burning fuel so fast,
Up into the black sky so vast,
Burning metal through the atmosphere,
Earth remains in worry, hate and fear
With the hateful battles raging on,
Rockets flying to the glowing sun
Through the empires of eternal void
Freedom from the final suicide

Freedom fighters sent out to the sun,
Escape from brainwashed minds and pollution
Leave the earth to all its sin and hate,
Find another world where freedom waits. Yeah

Past the stars in fields of ancient void,
Through the shields of darkness where they find,
Love upon a land a world unknown
Where the sons of freedom make their home
Leave the earth to Satan and his slaves
Leave them to their future in their grave
Make a home where love is there to stay
Peace and happiness in every day.
