Lyrics


1. INHERIT THE EARTH (THE ACCUSED COVER)

Sun baked bones stripped clean
Fangs sparkle and gleam
Claws drip of freshly shed blood
While the corpses
Of our masses
Rot in the mud
Sun falls
As no moon rises
The darkest of nights
Are full of surprises
In the distance a dog howls
Beneath our feet
Lurks something foul

One by one
Bodies rise from the ground
Deafened ears
Hear not a sound
Dead set free
Evil reings supreme
Gather demon clans
By the light of the moon

Sun baked bones stripped clean
Fangs sparkle and gleam
Claws drip of freshly shed blood
While the corpses
Of our masses
Rot in the mud
Sun falls
As no moon rises
The darkest of nights
Are full of surprises
In the distance a dog howls
Beneath our feet
Lurks something foul

Feasting on your flesh
The living dead
Time has no meaning
It's the day we dread
Gazing out of eyes
Decaying and old
Humanity has fallen
The bell tolls


2. HONEY BUCKET (MELVINS COVER)

Eight times a felon for fire
Like cobalt cast and clean
I got a motor felt the wheel
Real fast and fear

Try, jack it, black it for more
Handcuffs with special keys
Triple lies and been down defiled
It's a VSI

Throw a case of plasticine down
Baby I can immolate
And it's rotten in my rounds
Sister's in my way

I'm as fast as my home town
Green glass and most of all
Been around this foreign land
An image in the wall


3. KEROSENE (BIG BLACK COVER)

I was born in this town
Live here my whole life
Probably come to die in this town
Live here my whole life
Never anything to do in this town
Live here my whole life
Never anything to do in this town
Live here my whole life
Probably learn to die in this town
Live here my whole life
Nothing to do, sit around at home
Sit around at home, stare at the walls
Stare at each other and wait till we die
Stare at each other and wait till we die
Probably come to die in this town
Live here my whole life
There's Kerosene around, something to do
There's Kerosene around, she's something to do
There's Kerosene around, she's something to do
There's Kerosene around, we'll find something to do
Kerosene around, she's something to do
Kerosene around, set me on fire!

Set me on fire, Kerosene
Set me on fire, Kerosene
Set me on fire, Kerosene
Set me on fire, Kerosene
Set me on fire!

Kerosene around, something to do
There's Kerosene around, find something to do
There's Kerosene around, find something to do
Kerosene around, find something to do
Kerosene around, she's something to do
Kerosene around, set me on fire!

Set me on fire, Kerosene
Set me on fire, Kerosene
Set me on fire, Kerosene
Set me on fire, Kerosene
Set me on fire!

Kerosene around, she's something to do
Kerosene around, now what do we do?
Jumped Kerosene, now what do we do?
Jumped Kerosene, now what do we do?
Kerosene around, nothing to do
Jumped Kerosene, now what do we do?
Never anything to do in this town
Never anything but jump Kerosene
Never anything to do in this town
Never anything
Jump Kerosene!

Set me on fire, Kerosene
Set me on fire, Kerosene
Set me on fire, Kerosene
Set me on fire, Kerosene
Set me on fire!


4. KILL YOURSELF (S.O.D. COVER)

Can't take it, never could
Time to end it, wish you would
Friends and family, they're all gone
Life for you is just a con
Dig yourself a hole in the ground
Push up daisies six feet down
Take a dirt nap, buy the farm
Inject a bubble in your arm

Kill yourself, kill yourself
Why don't you kill yourself
Don't rely on no one else
End it all just kill yourself
[x2]

Life is just a one way ticket
Everyone must go around
Here's a bucket go and kick it
Slit your wrists without a sound
When you fo don't make a big deal
No dramatics, don't overplay
Cause don't you know that we'll all fell
Better once you've gone away

Kill yourself, kill yourself
Why don't you kill yourself
Don't rely on no one else
End it all just kill yourself
[x2]

You're a loser, there's nothing left for you
A worthless loser, at everything you do


5. I AGAINST I (BAD BRAINS COVER)

In the quest for the test to fulfill an achievement
Everybody's only in it all for themselves
When the fact of the matter is they just don't care
To extend a helping hand to anyone else
So tell me why, did you have to lie
And try to make me all confused about the U.S.A
When the fact of the matter is you just don't hear
To comprehend or understand a single word I say

I don't wanna have I go against I!
I don't wanna have I go against I!
Well let me tell you

The same old story, no factual glory
I against I against I against I against I
And I say I don't like it
And I know I don't want it
I against I against I against I against I
Almighty watching
Almighty watching
I against I against I against I against I
And I say I don't like it
And I know I don't want it
I against I against I against I against I

I said who's gonna tell the youth about the drugs
About the drugs, mugs, bugs, and the police thugs
About the rotten, stinkin' rackets and the fantasies
Around the nation
Around the nation
Oh what you gonna do?
I tell you the truth is looking straight at you
Oh baby, baby what you gonna do?
I tell you the truth is looking straight at you

I got a brass continental with a 300 Z
I got a color TV with a video too
I got a rest home in Jamaica with my fantasy for all my family
Around the nation

What you gonna do?
What you gonna do?
What you gonna do?
What you gonna do?


6. AXIS ROT (SLIANG LAOS COVER)

(Instrumental)


7. JESUS BUILT MY HOTROD (MINISTRY COVER)

Soon I discovered that this rock thing was true
Jerry Lee Lewis was the devil
Jesus was an architect previous to his career as a prophet
All of a sudden, I found myself in love with the world
So there was only one thing that I could do
Was ding a ding dang my dang a long ling long

[?]

Ding dang a dong bong bing bong
Ticky ticky thought of a gun
Every time I try to do it all now baby
Am I on the run
Why why why why why baby
If it's so evil then?
Give me my time, with all my power
Give it to me all again (wow)

Ding a ding a dang a dong dong ding dong
Every where I go

Every time you tell me baby
When I settle down
Got to get me a trailer park
And hold my world around
Why why why why?

Ding ding dong dong dong ding dong
Dingy dingy son of a gun
Half my time I tell you baby
Never am I all for sure
Why why why why why baby
Sicky sicky from within
Every time I stick my finger on in ya
You're a wild wild little town bitch

Now how 'bout ding a dang dong dong dong ling long
Dingy a dingy dong a down

Every time you tell me baby
When I settle down
Got to get me a trailer park
And hold my world around
Why why why why?

In my dang a ding a ding a ding dong
A sticky sticky son of a gun
Ding a danga danga dong dong ding dong
Why why never know

Why why wack a dong a dang ding dong
Then you take it on the bill
Ding dang dong don't dong
Whoa!

I wanna love ya

Why why why, why why darling
Do you do you tell me to play?
Half the time I talk about it all now baby
You know what I'm talkin' about I said

Ding ding dong a bong bong bing bong
Ticky ticky thought of a gun

Bing bing bang a bang a bang bing bong bing a bing bang a bong
Binga bing a bang a bong bong bing bong bing banga bong

Dawn of a gun
Bing bing bang a bong a bong bing bang a
Ticky ticky thought of a gun
Bing bip bip a bop bop boom bam
Ticky ticky through the day
If you got a doubt about baby
The memory is on the bed
Why why why why why
Darlin', it don't know
When my time is on
Might tell me never do it on his own

Every time you tell me baby
When I settle down
Got to get me a trailer park
And hold my world around
Why why why why?

If my time was all as is yours
Make me burn a wish
When my time with you is brutish
No I'll never not ever
Why why why why why why baby heavy hell
Alone and it's here it's this thunder
The thunder oh thunder
Oh...

Jesus built my car
It's a love affair
Mainly Jesus and my hot rod

Yeah, fuck it!


8. ONE VOICE (AGNOSTIC FRONT COVER)

I stood strong through right or wrong
I fought pain with time and hate

Here I stand alone and on fire in a room with a view
A fence with barbwire
Today my world ends and so theirs begins
Slowly trying to justify comparible sins

I stand here alone and unafraid
I've known in my past I've done worse days
I maybe apart from my dreams and desires
Yet no man can withhold me from what I most admire

I stood strong through right or wrong
I fought pain with time and hate

I'll fight when they try to strip me of my rights
And I won't, I won't accept defeat
I may be down but I will not be beat
One voice with pride I'll keep on striving till I die
And never, never will I black out
The streets remain in heart without a doubt
One voice!

One voice!


9. DINE ALONE (QUICKSAND COVER)

It's a cinch
To, pass the time with you
But hard to pass the time alone
Can you take it
And it's true
True, the couple next to you think you look strange
Alone, what are your aims
Or do you have any

Avoid confusion
You always know
You always know how much your paying
I concentrate on
On what the people say
The couple next to me

Pass the salt
Pour it in my wounds
It looks like you have no friends
You can't keep up with the new trends
Sorry, sorry for myself I don't agree
No, I always go out eating with my best friends
It's less than normal

Avoid confusion
You always know
You always know how much your paying
I concentrate on
On what the people say
The couple next to me
Pass the salt
Pour it in my wounds

Avoid confusion
You always know
You always know how much your paying
I concentrate on
On what the people say
I think at times


10. WE GOTTA KNOW (CRO-MAGS COVER)

Strugglin' in the streets just trying to survive
Searchin' for the truth is just keepin' us alive
Gotta break these shackles, gotta break these chains
Said the only way we'll do it is if we use our brains
Said there's gotta be some meaning to the purpose of life
I know there must be more than the struggle and strife
Cause I'm looking for the answers and I need a clue
Cause my mind's so disturbed now what do I do?

Notice everywhere there's mass confusion and packs of lies
We gotta know!
We're starin' down our enemies in the eyes
We gotta know!
These are the days of the cheaters and the cheated
We gotta know!
But we're not gonna bend you know we won't be defeated
We gotta know!

Strugglin' in the streets just trying to survive
Searchin' for the truth is just keepin' us alive
Gotta break these shackles, gotta break these chains
Said the only way we'll do it is if we use our brains
Said there's gotta be some meaning to the purpose of life
I know there must be more than the struggle and strife
Cause I'm looking for the answers and I need a clue
Cause my minds so disturbed now
What do I do? What do I do? What do I do?

This planet's turnin' into a hell
And I figured out that things don't really look too well
Reactions coming they're already starting to show
But the question is who'll go with the flow
You know there's gonna... be a fight!
Cause somebody's always tryin' to keep ya...
From doing the right
There's always gonna be somebody
Comin' no matter where you go
So now you know why we gotta know
We gotta now!
