    Faustus begin thine incantations,
    take good care to draw thy circle true,
    by God must you prevail -
    for if you fail these
    demons make a meal of you.

    Your soul shall be their meat -
    a kingly feast for them to eat,
    beware your future at hand,
    alas for thou art dammed.

    "Faustus seek repentance,
    abjure this evil art,
    cease this wretched wickedness
    and cleans thy foolish heart,
    for the evil that once served you
    has made of you a slave,
    and transformed your bed of roses'
    to a premature grave."

    Then in a mighty flash of light
    before thee Mephistopheles appears.

    "I charge thee go and change thy shape,
    for you fill my soul with fear.
    Now swift-as-hell back to the fire
    return an old Franciscan Friar."

    "Mortal command me while you can,
    For surely thou art dammed."

    [BAD ANGEL:]
    "Faustus be thou resolute
    in what thou wilst perform,
    ignore these righteous idiots -
    their trinity to scorn,
    for years of depravation you receive eternal life,
    but fame and wealth and maidens-fair
    are by far the better price."

    "Temptations all around me,
    is there nowhere I can turn?
    Hellfire is all about me,
    now I know that I shall burn,
    I face excommunication for the error
    of my ways - to burn in Hell for all my days.
    Bell, book and candle, candle, book, bell,
    forwards and backwards to damn me to Hell.

    Jehova I beg thee have mercy on my soul.
    Be gone foul beast that stands before me,
    my God! The midnight hour chimes,
    oh Lord have mercy he comes for me,
    I haven't got much time.
    I am awake this is no dream,
    I cry - but terror takes my scream,
    and now my future is at hand,
    also for I am dammed."

    "Think for just one moment
    and I'm sure that you will see,
    the moral of this story -
    that what shall be must be.
    He who gives his soul to Hell,
    must dare to pay the price,
    he versed in divinity must
    live a noble life -



    Fighting soldiers running wild to salute their Lord
    Make a sacrifice tonight, kill men from abroad
    They can’t escape, there’s no place to run
    Stupid methods, fear of death,
    ‘til the battle’s done
    The President has said to ‘em:
    “The enemy is near !
    Kill ‘em all, defend your country,
    march out without fear !”
    Despotism at its best, see the fuckin’ slaves
    Detonation, chaos, death,
    digging their own graves
    Die in hell
    Good men on the one side
    Good are the others, too
    Got the order: “kill each other, that’s what you must do !”
    Disarmament, detente, peace –
    promises, not more
    Reality are fightin soldiers dying in this war
    Die in hell
    Stop these politicians, for they create the war
    They’re the men, you have to fight against ‘em
    There’s no law
    Strike down this madness, soldier take revenge !
    Take your destiny in hand, it’s you you must defend !
    Die in hell
