01. The Declaration

Music by Machine Head
[Instrumental]


02. Bulldozer

Music & lyrics by Machine Head
Into the battles,
Making cages rattle
There's a pain that's inside
Us and we're letting it out

Charge right in, we dare to fail
No one is giving in, always we live to win
A hunger turns and burns inside of all of us
And it will not be denied

Walking a path untraveled
To reach higher level
Challenging always going
Against the grain

Blood for blood - that is the rule
And we will make the rules,
Never be fortune's fool
There's right and wrong in
Almost everything we do
For us we do what is right

Bulldozer feeds upon the weaker as they fall
Bulldozer crushes all

Somebody told me I should
Do what they told me
But there's a hole in that plan
And I'm tearing it down

Trust our guts, follow our hearts
No one can break these nuts,
These lips ain't kissing butts
The path of most resistance
Tests all of our strength
This strength will not be denied

Bulldozer feeds upon the weaker as they fall
Bulldozer crushes all

Bulldozer feeds upon the weaker as they fall
Bulldozer crushes all

Walking on paths untraveled
Challenging one and all
Deeper into the battles
Alone and standing tall

The more evolving changes
The more we stay the same
Full steam against the odds
Go headfirst against the grain

Full steam we go against the odds
Headfirst we go against the grain

Bulldozer goes against the odds
Bulldozer goes against the grain

Against the odds,
Against the grain
We go against the odds,
Against the grain

This is the bulldozer
This is the bulldozer.


03. White-Knuckle Blackout

Music & lyrics by Machine Head
Veins are a racetrack for fuel that I need
Life on the edge is the bread which I feed
Standing alone, open for all to see
My tunnel vision for life, it drives me

Focus in closer
Releasing the fear

White - knuckle blackout, adrenaline rush
Wide-eyed and red-faces, my skin hot and flushed
The hair stands up down the backside of my neck
Blood's beginning to boil the beads of sweat

Fear has its place in the scars that I bear
Deep in the mine, behind everything shared
Fixate my sickness as long as there's air
Headstrong I'll forcibly change what was there

By focusing closer
Releasing the fear

White - knuckle blackout, adrenaline rush
Wide-eyed and red-faces, my skin hot and flushed
The hair stands up down the backside of my neck
Blood's beginning to boil
These beads of sweat I'll dry, out of my eyes
And blacken everything except the goal out

Adrenaline is my fuel when I've obstacle to climb
Adrenaline is the lubrication , focusing my mind
Adrenaline is telling me when someone's thinking they're too cool
To raise my middle fingers up and say "fuck you"

Adrenaline is fueling my mint to focus my climb
Reaction evoked at the challenge provoked out of you
Adrenaline is fire to fuel
You wanna fire my fuel?
I'll fire back a fuck you!


04. Crashing Around You

Music & lyrics by Machine Head
I am your nightmares, true scares
That dream when you can't stop from falling
Can't fight, can't run
Can't stop the person you've become

I am your heartbreaks, mistakes
That place inside your hate
I am that shadow following
Every move, reminding you

That it's never good enough,
Never good enough
Even though you'll try and try
I'm gonna call your bluff

Because I am the thing bringing the feelings when...

Your world comes crashing around you
Smashes down around you
When will you see that you
Cannot hide from me?

When you feel darkness, hopeless
Can't cope with all the stress
I'll make you hate life bring strife
Remember failures hardened stare

And it's never gonna change,
Never gonna change
Always they'll be judging you
Compared to who and who

You trust in me but I only live to see...

Your world come crashing around you
Smash down around you
When will you see that you
Cannot hide from me?

When I come for you
When I see through you
When I eat through you
When I destroy you

You'll think you're betrayed, astray
I'll leave you ripped and torn so bad you
Can't trust, can't love
Can't understand why life's so fucked

I'm deep inside your mind
In constant remind
If you leave your thoughts to me, believe
I'll make sure that I see

Your world come crashing around you
Smash down around you
When will you see that you
Cannot hide from me?

I'll make your world
Come crashing around you
Smash down around you
I'll let you see why cannot hide from me

Because I am you.


05. Kick You When You're Down

Music & lyrics by Machine Head
Love for my love, hate for my hate
Strength for my strength, pain for my pain
Pride for my pride, match it inside
Trust that I find in you
But it's hard and it's brutal, it's nasty and rude and
It's dirty and mean when they treat you like yesterday's
News
They want to keep us all down town, frowned, underground
But no one is keeping me down
Fuck no

I'll keep my head high

Cause they will always kick you when you're down

Life for my life, soul fore my soul
Truth for my truth and heart for my heart
Drive for my drive, match it inside
Fight for this fight and don't you ever never
Give up, give up - you gotta play like a master of chess
It's a long road and it's mental endurance stress test
Sometimes you fight and you win, sometimes you fight and
You lose
It's the fighter in you
Not to lose

So keep you head high

Cause they will always kick you when you're down

You have to trust in yourself
You must believe in yourself
You have to follow your heart
You overcome, improve, endure

Love for my love, hate for my hate
Strength for my strength, pain for my pain
Pride for my pride, match it inside
Keep up your drive and fight to fight
Because some shit ain't right
Don't lose our sight
Get our heads right
Shine our star too bright
Nothing in life is for sure
It's just a gamble
So play it for all that it's worth

And don't forger to keep our heads high

Cause they will always kick you when you're down
They will always kick you when you're down
And don't you let their kicking get you down

You have to trust in yourself
You must believe in yourself
You have to follow your heart
You overcome, improve, endure


06. Only The Names

Music & lyrics by Machine Head
Welcome in my friend
Out of the cold where it's warm
Please step in
What's your name my friend
My name's the same
What a strange coincidence
Glad you're come to this place
What's the pleasure you chase
Oh, you like playing with speed
Well I have all the answers you need

I can take you
High and make you
Invincible
I'll never leave you

Welcome in my friend
Try some of this
What you'll feel is amazing
Tap a tiny blast
In a crease of foil
Place this flame beneath it
White smoke you will inhale
A speed rush you will exhale
The goose bumps prickle your skin
Just enough to dig the hooks in

I can take you
High and make you
Invincible
But now you're hollow

You're crawling on the floor
But you'll be back for more... yeah

Hello there my friend
Back for the sweet poison so soon again
But this lie must end
I must collect for those pleasures gave
When I first told you my name
I told you ours were the same
And that's not really a lie
My real name is your addiction

I will bring you
Down and break you
Burn right through you
Won't regret you


07. All In Your Head

Music & lyrics by Machine Head
You tell me,
I've been walking on a railing
Been excelling at failing
That I think wrong, I don't belong
I don't fit, I don't give a shit

Take my guitar and microphone,
Pour out my fuckin' soul
Insecurity, I'll strip it down to the bone - fuck it
I ain't a stranger, just strange
I'll be find so leave me alone

You can't see the things that make
Your happiness go away, well I can

It's all in your head
It's in your head
Sad but it's true
It's inside you

Keep wallowing in your misery
It's all in your head

I know that I'm a weirdo
And I'm messed up
And the lord knows that I've fucked up
But I don't need you to point out
Every mistake that I make

I'm sick of all your negatives,
Something has gotta give
Got me thinking you need to stop overthinking
Brink of losing my mind and going blind
I'll be fine, leave me alone

You can't see the things that make
Your happiness go away, well I can

It's all in your head
It's in your head
Sad but it's true
It's inside you

Keep wallowing in your misery
It's all in your head

Why can't you see it's you
It's just inside of you

You can't see the things that make
Your happiness go away, well I can
Honestly you're driving me insane, again

Because it's all in your head
It's in your head
Sad but it's true
It's inside you

Someday you'll see why you're unhappy
Someday you'll see that it's not me
It's all in your head

It's just inside of you.


08. American High

Music & lyrics by Machine Head
I was that kid sittin' over
in the corner,
smiling with a shit-eating
grin
And I was that kid smilin' in
the back of class
'cause I'm fryin' on mescaline
I was that kid drinkin' 40's
on the bleachers
getting drunk after school
Gettin' home too late,
fallin' on my face,
way too drunk to skate
and actin' a fool

I was that kid never doing
good at
nothing except for maybe
at P.E.
And I was that kid getting
bullied by the
filipinos rollin with ABT
Me and my friends reading
the satanic bible thinking
we should start a band
Cutting class to jam,
cutting class to jam
In my dad's garage we
learned to

Act a fool - don't need to
be cool
Pissed off too and
breaking the rules
Mama told me stay in
school
don't rock 'n roll
But this is my american
high

I was that kid that was
crank-calling
your girlfriend, couldn't
get a goddamn date
And I was that kid that was
getting hella busted for
pissin' on the bart train
I fuckin' hated school
except for hanging out
with my friends, the
outcast that was
startin' up a band
Fremont was the town,
California-bound,
bay area sound, taught me
to

Act a fool - don't need to
be cool
Pissed off too and
breaking the rules
Mama told me stay in
school
don't rock 'n roll
But this is my american
high

I'm that kid you tried to
punk in english class
Now I'm in a band and
you're kissing my...

Asteroids beat out homework
Slayer beat out Zeppelin
Not the sharpest noggin
that's why I'm in this band

And what you got against
me, I don't need a new job
What you got against me,
I'll get by on my own
Tellin' me I'm never getting
by from my songs
I love it when you're
proven wrong

Act a fool - don't need to
be cool
Pissed off too and
breaking the rules
Mama told me stay in
school
don't rock 'n roll
But this is my american
high

Act a fool - don't need to
be cool
Break the rules
'cause this is my american
high.


09. Brown Acid

[Instrumental]


10. Nausea

Music & lyrics by Machine Head
One more time you've
gotten into my head
I've let your words get
into me
Every time I try to talk,
you never listen
You got the answers,
I don't know a thing
But you ask me what these
lights are in my eyes

They're a freight train
ahead
And they're straight
coming your way
You've tied yourself down
to the tracks
Now you want help from me
to cut you free
If it was me
my hour of need
You'd leave me there to
bleed

I'm fucking sick of you
and all that shit you're
pulling
Your fuckin' attitude
had better go on

You cheat and you lie
and you stole and denied
And you turned on your
friends
when you burned all those
bridges

This time you won't be
getting under my skin
What you had I've taken
away
Tell me what you're gonna
do, it doesn't matter
You're always talking, it
don't mean a thing
So ask me what these
lights are in my eyes

They're a freight train
ahead
And they're straight
coming your way
You've tied yourself down
to the tracks
Now you want help from me
to cut you free
If it was me
my hour of need
You'd leave me there to
bleed

I'm fucking sick of you
and all that shit you're
pulling
Your fuckin' attitude
had better go on

You cheat and you lie
and you stole and denied
And you turned on your
friends
when you burned all those
bridges

Well you sat there and
cried
As these words came to
glide
through your delicate skin
leaving blood on these
pages
So how does it feel
to be at one with the fate I
seal

They're a freight train
ahead
And they're straight
coming your way
You've tied yourself down
to the tracks
Now you want help from
me to cut you free
If it was me
my hour of need
You'd leave me there
to bleed

I'm fucking sick of you
and all that shit you're
pulling
Your fuckin' attitude
had better go on

You cheat and you lie
and you stole and denied
And you turned on your
friends
when you burned all those
bridges.


11. Blank Generation

Music & lyrics by Machine Head
They say we been
going down and going
down
Been traveling on the road
to nowhere
Going down, round and
round
Trying to get to the place
where we started

When I was just a boy
at four years old thought
the world was joy
As a kid I'd play, just
create the day
as I saw it my way

But time blows by

And strips us to the bone
poisoned wind of woe
Teach us that we're
alone in this world
We learned to see all the
corruption and greed
All its hate, all its pain, so
a toast to the end of our
innocence
A toast to our blank generation

They say we been
going down, been going
down
Been traveling on the road
to nowhere
Going down, round and
round
Trying to get to the place
where we started

When I was seventeen
realizing the world wasn't
what she seemed
Underneath the night San
Francisco sky
I would see, too clearly

But time blows by
And strips us to the bone
poisoned wind of woe
Teach us that we're
alone in this world
We learned to take all the
corruption and greed
All its hate, all its pain, so
a toast to the end of our
innocence
A toast to our blank generation

So here's to our collagen
lips and saline tits
To our growth hormones
and antibiotics
To the Hollywood world
we made out of Barbie doll
hearts
After we melted them down
so we could make our new
start
Here's to a generation
scared and always
wondering why
Instead of playing doctor,
we play shoot each other
and die
Instead of ring around the
Rosie, we play hide from
Mommy
'Cause Mommy's been drinking
again and we don't
want to get beat
Even with all our tattoos,
and all our cheap thrills
there's still a hole inside
of us that may not ever get
filled
So we give back a little bit
of what the world's given
us
Giving back a bit of never
giving a fuck

Here's to the justice never
dealt, to innocent, proven
guilty
Here's to bad cops turning
cheeks when real cops are
on the street
Here's to the rat-tat-n-tat
of gun shots, and your life
is shattered
Here's to "Gimme me your
cash or your brains is
gettin' splattered"
Here's to mad cow disease
and all that yummy MSG
Here's to Mickey d's serving
all those mutant chick-a-dees
This is a toast to celebrate
the end of our innocence
This is a toast to celebrate
how...
We've become desensitized
if life is to grow
some life must die

We learned to take all the
corruption and greed
All its hate, all its pain, so
a toast to the end of our
innocence
our generation
We now embrace all the
corruption
and greed, all its hate, all
its pain, so
a toast to the end of our
innocence
our blank generation.


12. Trephination

Music & lyrics by Machine Head
I used to want to take a
drill to my head
Let the pain out of the hole
I used to want to cut the
veins in my neck
Cool the blood boiling my
soul
When I wondered, why my
daily headaches thundered
Tried to buffer, pushing
down the pain I suffered
Mutilated, feeling so
humiliated
Cannot wash the dirt off
underneath my skin

There was a part of me left
far behind
When at the age of five
years old
I had my innocence taken
from me
Emptiness would fill the
hole
Now a second grader,
thinking why I don't feel
better
Why I'm filthy, why the hell
I feel so guilty
When drawing stick men
of pornographic men and
women
Thinking all the time
there's something wrong
with me

Everyday for three years
from dawn 'til dusk a
migraine
would take me and break me
And it'd cripple me so
much that
In dreams, it'd seem, with
a hole in my temple
that I could probably make
my headaches finally go
away

Trephination
trephination
The enemy inside of me
won't let me free
wants me to bleed

And after three years now
my headaches wear off
For reasons not quite to
me known
The acupuncture needles
sticking my skin
Pushed them down as far
as they'd go
But now I'm older and now
inside my anger smolders
from depression, to fighting
Taking out my vengeance
Consequences, now I'd
question during sex if ...
Is this how it fucking feels
or am I faking it ?

No longer the child that
you left there at the bart
tracks
I'm now at 17, left in an
empty blackness
On drugs, with thugs, and
thinking "Goddamn ?"
I'm ending up in a failure,
in the gutter passed out

Trephination
trephination
This enemy inside of me
won't let me free
wants me to bleed

Now I'm older and in this
man an anger smolders
Now I'm thinking a hole in
you is what I'm seeing
Your depression, is the
dent I kick in you in
vengeance
Consequences are the pain
I'd give to you

I know that I'm dreaming,
but in this dream I go in
go through it, and end it
And though I'd never do it
I'm killing you, hand on
the trigger - pull it
Your final thought'll be a
bullet in your fuckin' head

Trephination
trephination
This enemy inside of me
I'm now killing
to make me free.


13. Deafening Silence

Music & lyrics by Machine Head
She looked right into my eyes
And said to me
The hurt that you try to hide
Is killing me

You drink a thousand lies,
To freeze the past in time
I've tried to fill this silence up
But now it's back again

See the pain in my eyes
See the scars deep inside
My God, I'm down in this hole again

With the laughter I smile
With the tears that I cry
Keep going down this road called life

She says that I'm insecure,
I guess she's right
'Cause just when I think I'm sure,
Alone at night

The agonies come back,
This pain won't let me be
I try to fill the silence up
But now it's back again

See the pain in my eyes
See the scars deep inside
My God, I'm down in this hole again

With the laughter I smile
With the tears that I cry
Keep going down this road called life

Don't need your sympathy
I just want for this silence to stop killing me

It's deafening
It's deafening
This silence inside me

I try to fill the silence up
But now it's back again
It's empty like a suicide
This pain inside

See the pain in my eyes
See the scars deep inside
My God, I'm down in this hole again

With the laughter I smile
With the tears that I cry
Keep going down this road called life

Don't need your sympathy
I just want for this silence to stop killing me.


14. Supercharger

Music & lyrics by Machine Head
Electricity is pulsing
through our veins a charge
is racing
A chain reaction through
the four of us,
to you, will make
the transformers begin
converting into overdrive

Power surge now
exploding through
Energy, filling the ominous
void within you
No need to live your life in
that gap
Got what you need right
here on lightning tap, so

Charge me, charge you
charge us, charge through
Amplify, terrify
supercharger electrifies

Getting under skin, we're
like a rash
Spreading over your body
we are the itch you
scratch
That doesn't seem to go
away
Protons, neutrons, electrons
synchronizing into one

In sheer power all will
pale
heaviness off the Richter
scale
Forever crushing the
competition in their tracks
100,000 Volts we blast, so

Charge me, charge you
charge us, charge through
Amplify, terrify
supercharger electrifies

Your - little sticks of
dynamite
We're - the fuse and
we're the light

Electricity is pulsing
through our veins a
charge is racing
A chain reaction from the
four of us,
to you, has made
it crystal clear we'll win
this war
Destiny...Victory

Braveheart - mindset, full
attack
Kamikaze, never look back
in this war, a victory is if
you feel this too
You feed off us, and we
feed off you, so

Charge me, charge you
charge us, charge through
Amplify, terrify
supercharger electrifies

Charge me, charge you
charge us, charge through
Supercharger
Supercharger
Supercharger
Supercharger.
