Lyrics
1. FORGED IN FIRE

Scraping the Earth in search of the essence
Metallic rock ore where iron is present
Extraction smelters burn hot with phosphorescence

Rivulets of sweat steam hot in the mold
Splashes in magenta, yellow and gold
Glowing sparks flashing too hot to hold

Made for pounding a massive weight
Forming metal, willing fate

Power blasted streams engage the injection
The mechanism reacts with affection
Processing starts and so begins infection

Altered shape, affected matter
Giving form, an ominous factor
Never break it, it will never bend
The Anvil was Forged In Fire

Made for pounding a massive weight
Forming metal, willing fate


2. SHADOW ZONE

It happened fast, a final flash, that set the world on fire
And mankind paid a final debt to insatiable desire
Toxins linger, pollute the soil and prohibit germination
Tainted oceans choke out life inflicting termination

Barren land, desolate waste, destruction is complete
Surviving mutants walk the ruins in search of a retreat
Scarlet skies enclose this tomb where all existence lies
Morbid mutilations wail but no one hears their cries

Eternal hell and damnation The forsaken long to die
In the end humanity caused its own demise

Decaying flesh in open graves, disease ridden corpse
Death lurks in all that lives, the Earth becomes a morgue
Scarlet skies enclose this tomb where all existence lies
Morbid mutilations wail but no one hears their cries
In the end humanity caused its own demise

Beware the shadow zone
Death trap, the bomb has blow
Beware the shadow zone
Burn you down to the bone

Infected societies from power hungry nations
Insane world leaders and all their frustrations
If only those responsible could see what they have done
A war without survivors is a fight that's never won
Scarlet skies enclose this tomb where all existence lies
Morbid mutilations wail but no one hears their cries

Eternal hell and damnation The forsaken long to die
In the end humanity caused its own demise

Beware the shadow zone


3. FREE AS THE WIND

Running wild crazy and free
Being anything I want to be
Got no time for hanging around
Ain't nobody gonna tie me down
Spend my time doing what I please
Take the world on, got 'em on their knees
People think that I'm no good
Won't do the things they think I should

Life's confusing me and messin' me around
Don't know if I'm ever coming down
Got to get your mind out of my head
Leave me alone and live your life instead

Play my music way too loud
My hair's too long, I don't fit in the crowd
Leather jacket and denim jeans
Metal studs run down the seams
Times are hard but I don't care
'Cause if I want it I'll take my share
Talkin' life on a bit too steep
Outta my way or I'll bury you deep

Gotta stop pushin' shovin' me around
Gotta stop tryin' to put me down
Got to get your mind out of my head
Leave me alone and live your life instead

Lotta people got a lot to say
But I'm doing things my own way
'Cause I'm free as the wind

Maybe someday they will understand
Just why I choose to be my own man
It doesn't matter I ain't gonna change
The master plan should be rearranged
Breaking rules is what I do
On the bad side it's a better view
If it's too loud then you're too old
Get the hell out 'cause you've been told

Gotta stop pushin' shovin' me around
Gotta stop tryin' to put me down
Got to get your mind out of my head
Leave me alone and live your life instead

Lotta people got a lot to say
But I'm doing things my own way
'Cause I'm free as the wind


4. NEVER DECEIVE ME

Got a strange situation
I think that something's going down
I hear it being whispered
The rumour's out all over town
You see I got a little lady
Who I ain't been treatin' right
It's a crime the way I'm acting
I've been staying out all night

If it's not too late
Try and change my fate
All I need is you to stay with me

Now my drink is almost empty
And I'll soon be on my way
We have to talk about it
It can't wait another day
But I think that things are changing
By the way she looks at me
She keeps it all inside her
And she thinks that I can't see

I was walking in the rain
When I came upon the scene
She was kissing him goodnight
And I knew where she had been
It changed my life completely
And ever since that day
You won't keep me close enough
To hurt me in that way

'Cause when I saw you with that other guy
You know it hurt me so down deep inside
You'll never deceive me again
'Cause when I saw you with that other guy
You know you hurt me so down deep inside
You'll never deceive me again


5. BUTTER-BUST JERKY

All I need is a lady
With more than average size
She's gotta be a bit crazy
Won't take no compromise
If she can fill a "D" cup
It's good enough to keep me up

Get you down on your backside
I wanna see your wares
Gonna mount you for a good ride
Nothing else compares
Takin' one into each hand
Do as I command

Doin' the Butter-Bust Jerky
We're gonna get down and dirty
Doin' the Butter-Bust Jerky
And makin' me feel so good

Dip your fingers in the butter
Spread it all across your chest
In between one another
You know what I like best
Push 'em close together
The tighter the better

Doin' the Butter-Bust Jerky
We're gonna get down and dirty
Doin' the Butter-Bust Jerky
We're gonna get down and dirty
Doin' the Butter-Bust Jerky
And makin' me feel so good


6. FUTURE WARS

A place afar in distant dreams
Mystic winds blow
Men mount birds of prey to war
And raid each others shore
Wizards and Warlocks battle by night
One survives by cunning and might
Take what you can by sword and sabre
Just reward for perilous labour

Stands among them a natural King
A man of barbaric breed
In a blade of steel he lays his trust
Killing and taking his needs
Upon him the scars of battles gone by
From many who have gazed in his murderous eye
Astride his mount he cursed and then
Assembled his men in thousands and ten
Onward lads we'll kill them all
Victory is ours
We'll have their heads and female slaves
Soon to loot their towers
Riding hard they rushed the gates
And scaled the granite walls
Through boiling oil and falling stone
His men endured it all

In bloody streets the battle raged
Brave men died and women were caged
Amidst the hoard, a barbaric roar
He gut the guard and kicked down the door
Sword in one hand, torch in the other
Alert every step of the way
If legends be true this place is cursed
Demons stand guard night and day

Living hell cloaked in black
Three ungodly hosts
Upon the dais a ball of light
Which binds them to their post
Faster than a striking cobra
Hit the altar and knocked it over
Shattered in a silver shower
The priests of hell have lost their power

Up the stairs a golden door
The queen awaits within
Her naked body close to his
The prize is won again
And has she yields to his force
His mind drifts off to Future Wars


7. HARD TIMES - FAST LADIES

Three of you are all alone
On the road long way from home
No one here to
Tell you what to do tonight
You look at us and you think you might
Try us on for size

Dressed to kill you're looking hot
Give away everything you've got
Hoping that you
Score a guy whose in a band
To be with you and hold your hand
Love is on your mind

Comin' at you gonna do our best - All night, no rest
Gonna give you every inch of me - just you wait and see

Hard times - fast ladies
In heat, gonna drive us crazy
Hard times - fast ladies
In heat

In our room say that you're a gift
Your friends and you promise us a lift
Time to get it
On the case do us like you should
Do the things you said you would
Don't hold back let's go

Faster faster that's the way
Coming through now, don't delay
We're the kind of guys you've been dreaming of

Comin' at you gonna do our best - All night, no rest
Gonna give you every inch of me - just you wait and see

Now that all is said is done
The night is over and we've had our fun
Time for you to
Go your own way and we will to
One night's loving is enough for you
Memories remain

Comin' at you gonna do our best - All night, no rest
Gonna give you every inch of me - just you wait and see


8. MAKE IT UP TO YOU

You make me feels so right
When you're around
Maybe I've gone astray
But you're the best I've found

Now I see things the way I really should
The lesson's learned I've change my ways for good
I'll make it all up to you

Seemed like all was lost
Things were going wrong
In time I found
It's with you I'm in love

Please stay - don't go - Be by my side
I know that our love has never died

Please stay - don't go - Be by my side
I know that our love has never died

I'll make it all up to you


9. MOTORMOUNT

You've tried them all from big to small
But no one's turned your crank
You're here tonight to get done right
I'm gonna fill your tank
Pull in the bay it's your lucky day
Get up on the hoist
From underneath we'll tool and grease
Gonna get you moist

What I see just can't be
Have to work you overtime
Gonna line you up and prime you up
Make you run so fine
Lift the hood if you know what's good
I wanna spark the gap
Fuel injection - no infection
Clean right to the cap

Ride the clutch Motormount
Drive all night
Grind the gears Motormount
Hold on tight

Motormount (drive all night)
Motormount (drive all night)

Dip my wrench into your stench
And twist the nuts up tight
Anticipate, Accelerate
And torque with all my might

Manifold - Got to hold
Transmission - Hydraulic spin

High speed ride - Power Glide
Can't survive overdrive

Pistons screaming, Rings are seizing
Think your valves are gone
Start to tire, then backfire
No longer can go on

Overheating - you're peaking
Start steamin' - watch you blow

High speed ride - Power Glide
Can't survive overdrive

Motormount (drive all night)


10. WINGED ASSAINS

Machines made for killing at march speed and more
Sleek in design and loaded for war
Sidewinding missiles, heat-seeks and sparrows
Strafing squadrons cause havoc and terror

Winged Assassins - Seek their prey

Camouflage colours impair observation
Insignia painted depicting its nation
Defying detection at low altitude
Penetrate, attack, evade and elude

Soaring death - Taking lives
No escape - Widows weep

Winged Assassins - Seek their prey

Radar is sweeping and scanning the skies
Searching out targets with infrared eyes
Enemy forces appear on the screen
Computers lock in, all systems are green

Formation - Orders, permission to arm
Closing in - To make the kill

Trigger in hand, blood lust in his heart
The pilot is ready to play out his part
Underwing stores await a demand
Releasing the arsenal upon his command

Soaring death - Taking lives
No escape - Widows weep

Permission is given to unleash the power
Rockets home in, strike and devour
Wreckage falls helpless rolling in flames
Another life wasted in some general's games

Task complete - Honours awaiting heroes
Painted scrap - Awarding murder

Winged Assassins - Seek their prey
