01. Starlight

Music & lyrics by Accept
Know the bright lights of Hollywood
Movietowns, a phony world
Seen a few nights of wonder,
Seen a few nights of hell

Walkin' down the foggy streets of London-town
Now I know it well
Ev'ry light in the world is nothing
To the light we know so well

Starlight, shining bright, starlight

Had a bit of life in high society
The slums have seen me, too
And the rich and poor would wonder,
At somethin' old and new

See it ev'ry night goin' slowly 'round
Can't you see it's true
Out there ev'ry man is equal
Way out there in the blue

Starlight, shining bright, starlight

Take it all the way all night long
Twinkle on, you stars
I feel my brain is blinded,
I wonder what you are

Starlight, shining bright, starlight

Starlight...


03. I Don't Wanna be Like You

Music & lyrics by Accept
Heaven knows
Heaven knows I tried
To be like you
To be a part of the tribe

I'd rather leave it all behind
But that's alright
I'm not your average type
No Mr. Clean - hey, I wanna be me

Can't you see - I'm the exception to the rule
I know what I want
And I know I'm gonna get it
That's is why - I'm the exception to the rule
Don't push me too far
The way I am is just because

I don't wanna be like you
I don't wanna be like you
The walls can be shaking
The earth could be quaking
I still don't wanna be like you

I'm hog-tied'n'dirty
I'm tough and mean
Keep your Wall Street slickers
And the american dream

You ('ve) done me over and over
You ('ve) tried to tie me down
Why don't you step out of the shadows
Dare to roll the dice
Let it roll - and don't you push me around

Can't you see - I'm the exception to the rule
I know what I want
And I know I'm gonna get it
That's is why - I'm the exception to the rule
Don't push me too far
The way I am is just because

I don't wanna be like you
I don't wanna be like you - never ever!
The walls can be shaking
The earth could be quaking
But I still don't wanna be like you

The ordinary way of life ain't for me
I do what I want and I wanna be free
Never know, where I go or what I'm gonna do
Why can't you see - the only thing I know is that

I don't wanna be like you
I don't wanna be like you
If the oceans turn to desert
Hell can turn to ice
But I still don't wanna be like you

I don't wanna be like you
I don't wanna be like you - no way!
The walls can be shaking
The earth could be quaking
But I still don't wanna be like - you!


04. Breaker

Music & lyrics by Accept
Rollin' just like thunder,
tryin' to get you down
Mistreatin' ev'rythin',
if you were king he'd take your crown
If you were adead man
he'd take ya from your grave
He will not mourn for you or me

Happines he cannot feel
and love to him is so unreal
He burns like hell, he wants you dead,
alltogether hate's all he feel
Movin' like a spider' killin' off a fly
No hands, just fists, no heart, just rocks

Icicle brains
Bicycle chains

Rulin' like a tyrant,
teasin' ev'ryone around
He drags his legs, he plants his feet,
he's botherin' the ground
Here and now this man
you see plans his terror free
He's born to rule, a king to be

Icicle brains
Bicycle chains

He's a breaker
He will take ya
Destroyin' all around you
He's a breaker
He's a taker
He'd kill, maim, destroy to the end

Movin' like a spider,
preyin' on the rest
Rulin' like a tyrant,
tyrannosaurus rex
You could be a dead man,
and you won't know why
No hands, just fists,
no heart, just rocks

Icicle brains
Bicycle chains

He's a breaker
He will take ya
Destroyin' all around you
He's a breaker
He's a taker
He'd kill, maim, destroy to the end


05. Slaves to Metal

Music & lyrics by Accept
We hold the seeds of metal
And we scatter them around
We'll eat you up - and spit you out
Like a pack of wolves on the hunt

We are the kings of madness

We are the sons of evil
Burning down every house
We are the metal gladiators
Unchain the beast and let it loose

Come raise your hand and shout it out
We want it now we want it loud

'cause we are slaves to metal
- locked into the taste of steel
Slaves to metal
- we'll march you to the beat
We are slaves to metal
- chained up to the sound
Slaves to metal
- we'll rock you to the ground - so evil

Born to be the bloodhounds
In the legions of the damned
A million miles of madnesses
On the battleground of screaming guitars

Will you taste the sweat of metal
Will you lick the open wounds
It's the ultiment commandment
Which will guarantee your doom

Come raise your hand and shout it out
We want it now we want it loud

'cause we are slaves to metal
- locked into the taste of steel
Slaves to metal
- we'll march you to the beat
We are slaves to metal
- chained up to the sound
Slaves to metal
- we'll rock you to the ground

'cause we are slaves to metal
- locked into the taste of steel
Slaves to metal
- we'll march you to the beat
We are slaves to metal
- chained up to the sound
Slaves to metal
- we'll rock you to the ground

Slaves to metal


09. This One's for You

Music & lyrics by Accept
I can't wait much longer
Revenge is overdue
You took your chance and screwed me
Way back in '82

Inside my hate is burning
My brain's on overload
My innocence is over
Now I'm ready to explode

I'm gonna be your nemesis
- I like it when you scream
I'm the mother of your nightmares
- got a contract to redeem

This one's for you - right in your face
Just sit on this and spin around
This one's for you - your time is up
Stick it - shove it - where the sun don't shine

You've always been a wise guy
You played at being rough
I stripped away your masquerade
And now you ain't so tough

You're a coward with no backbone
I will crush you with my heel
Put the scrapings in my blender
Add some bourbon - what a meal

I'm gonna be your nemesis
- I like it when you scream
I'm the mother of your nightmares
- got a contract to redeem

This one's for you - right in your face
Just sit on this and spin around
This one's for you - I hold the ace
Stick it - shove it

This one's for you - right in your face
Just sit on this and spin around
This one's for you - a bunchof fives
Stick it - shove it

This one's for you - right in your face
Just sit on this and spin around
This one's for you - no one but you
Stick it - shove it
- where the sun don't shine


10. Bulletproof

Music & lyrics by Accept
He called it this - he called it that
But never what it was
We called it shit - we called it grass
That's the way it was
He took it once - just for the thrill
He'd bought a ticket to ride

We laughed about - the jokes he told
He was one of the boys
Hey, what a guy - he used to be
When he was sober and dry

Smokey nights - Gloomy lights
He was high as a kite
When he turned into a demon
No way to calm him down
Just like a Jekyl and Hyde

He wasn't bulletproof
- Shot himself the final round
No man is bulletproof
- It's destination underground
Too many jouneys - on acid trains
Too many trips - on the astral plane

Danced with Lucy in the sky
On a cloud of ecstasy
Too late to stop him now
Even sacrifice his mother
Turn against his only friend
To reach the ultimate high

He wasn't bulletproof
- He shot himself the final round
No man is bulletproof
- It's destination underground
Bulletproof
- The chief is your medicine-man
No man is bulletproof
- He's gonna drug you down

He thought that he could fly
That he could reach the sky
But he went up too high - oh, so high
He kissed the ground - goodbye

He wasn't bulletproof
- He shot himself the final round
No man is bulletproof
- Destination underground
Bulletproof
- The chief is your medicine-man
No man is bulletproof
- He's gonna drug you down


11. Too High to Get it Right

Music & lyrics by Accept
Getting everything is easy for you
Fail for anything is something you can't do
If it doesn't work in the way you want it for
You start dreaming until it's right

Lie is lie -- and truth is truth
You'll turn it 'round, let someone else go down
You won't remember and no one would wonder
How you change it upside down

Too high to get it right
(too high to get -- too high to get)
Too high to get it right

(too high to get it right) -- too high to get it right
(too high to get it right) -- to get it right
(too high to get it right) -- too high to get it right
(too high to get it right) -- to get it right

To get it right

You can't deny it you're leaving your world
You are so restless, who's the one who's hurt
Living in your dreams and who seems to care
Cheating you is easy, 'cause you don't understand

Holding on -- letting loose
Don't you feel that you are confused
Too many words -- not spoken out
Too many things you've not thought about

Too high to get it right
(too high to get -- too high to get)
Too high to get it right

(too high to get it right) -- too high to get it right
(too high to get it right) -- to get it right
(too high to get it right) -- too high to get it right
(too high to get it right) -- to get it right

(too high to get it right) -- too high to get it right
(too high to get it right) -- to get it right
(too high to get it right) -- too high to get it right
(too high to get it right) -- to get it right

(too high to get it right) -- too high to get it right
(too high to get it right) -- to get it right
(too high to get it right) -- too high to get it right

(too high to get it -- too high to get it -- too high to get it)

Too high to get it (right)


12. Metal Heart

Music & lyrics by Accept
It is 1999
The human race has to face it
They are confronted with the truth
It's secret -- mysterious

A surgeon said it in the news
The human race is dying
But the result is no disease
Searching for you

Metal heart -- metal heart
They found it everywhere
Metal heart -- metal heart
Lifeless piece of steel

The scaring fact was even told
Total confusion
They found the same nightmare
Heartbeats -- timebombs

Metal heart -- metal heart
Unplugged they're dying
Metal heart -- metal heart
Unplugged they die

Metal heart -- metal heart
They found it everywhere
Metal heart -- metal heart
Lifeless piece of steel

Metal heart -- metal heart -- metal heart
Unplugged they're dying
Metal heart -- metal heart


15. What Else

Music & lyrics by Accept
Heroes - keep dying
Nations - dividing
Principles - they're gone
It's war

Wallstreet - buy in politics
Jesus - up for sale
Do anything - for money
I'm a whore

What else - what's in it for me
What else
What else - what's in it for me
What else

Deadlines - headlines
Make me - the biggest star
I don't need personality
?cause it's war

I'm greedy - I'm deadly
Don't give a fuck anymore
Anything for money
I'm a whore


16. Sodom And Gomorra

Music & lyrics by Accept
Ever since the stone-age
Man's been on the hunt
We were born to kill

Fighting for survival
All in self-defence
It was do or die

Now we're living in jungles
The concrete age
A maximum overdose of pleasure and pain

Self-inflicted - life corrupting
Antisocial - controversial - living in sin

Sodom and Gomorra
Let me tell you what I see
Sodom and Gomorra

Got not law and order
Ruled by anarchy
It's here to stay

Chaos in the classroom
Kids are killing kids
Getting outta hand

Mothers and fathers - the sickening ones
Raping the children
At the end of a gun

Self-inflicted - life corrupting
Antisocial - controversial - living in sin

Sodom and Gomorra
Let me tell you what I see
Sodom and Gomorra
We're in a burning hell for all eternity

Sodom and Gomorra
You mustn't look back
To Sodom and Gomorra
Don't you look back -
to the essence of evil

This universe of hatred
Aggression is the force
Heading for oblivion
We're on collision-course

Evolution's over
The devil has prevailed
Heaven screams for vengeance
This is judgement day

Self-inflicted - life corrupting
Antisocial - controversial - living in sin

Sodom and Gomorra
Let me tell you what I see
Sodom and Gomorra
Forever ruled by anarchy

Sodom and Gomorra
Forever damned to purgatory
Sodom and Gomorra


17. The Beast Inside

Music & lyrics by Accept
My mind is razor-sharp
And I'm wild-cat-mean
I'd like to shred your face
A danger to you
When I feel the urge
Deep down inside
I lose my human touch
I'm like a killing machine

I want to resist - but I can't hold it back
The beast is unleashed - it's got to attack
Again and again the force is too strong
It's breaching the chains

I've got the beast inside
Don't you trust in me
I've got the beast inside
Craving a victim - it's telling me to kill

I look through evil eyes
Prowling in the streets
In the dead of night
I'm a man on the hunt

I know my soul is under siege
Can't somebody stop me now
?cause I'm losing control

I've got the beast inside
Don't you trust in me
I know it must have been
the beast inside
It's driving me to kill

It's gotta be the beast - the beast - the beast
The beast - the beast - the beast - deep down inside

But when the deed is done
And the pain is gone
I feel renewed within
Until the voices return

The beast - the beast - the beast
The beast - the beast - the beast

My mind is razor-sharp
And I'm wild-cat-mean
I'd like to shred your face
I've told you before

When I feel the urge
Deep down inside
I lose my human touch
I'm just a killing machine

I want to resist -
but I can't hold it back
The beast is unleashed -
it's got to attack
Again and again the force is too strong
It's breaching the chains

It's gotta be the beast inside
Never ever trust in me
I know there is a beast inside
Inside in all of us

I feel I've got the beast inside
I'm screaming for help from this monster within
The beast inside - take a look in
the mirror - it's staring at you
Even at you - the beast inside


18. Stone Evil

Music & lyrics by Accept
They terrorize and
tyrannize democracies
Their narrow minds still nothing
learned from history
The seeds of hate acquired from
their ancestry
Spreading like a cancer in societies

They've got the poison inside
Rivers of pesticide
Skin-headed minions -
they're deaf, dumb and blind
Machind-like in body - robotic in mind

Stone evil - inherited sin
Stone evil - infected from within

They can't leave it -
they can't break the spell
Under orders to obey
It was meant to last a thousand years
It took the world into dismay

Stone evil - stone evil

If you're gonna throw the torch at us
Don't expect to not get burned
It's time to stand - and fight the right
This is the lesson we have learned

They're marching to a different beat and glorify
The darkest times when innocent were crucified
They paralize and sterilize the masses' minds
They desecrate man's dignity - desensitize

They've got the poison inside
Rivers of pesticide
Skin-headed minions - they're deaf, dumb and blind
Machine-like in body - robotic in mind - evil

Stone evil - inherited sin
Stone evil - infected from within
Stone evil - inherited sin


19. Death Row

Music & lyrics by Accept
I'm dead meat - you took away my rights
To be a part of your society
A life-time in prison wouldn't justify
You wanna blow away a sucker - so I have to die

I'm still waiting for the final call
I wanna meet my maker - I'm ready to go
Kill me - kill me - kill me - please, kill me

Give me a reason why you're gonna let me wait
Some kind of punishment before you terminate
You're taking my life for your peace of mind
So let's go - start the show

Death row - I'm ready to go - death row
Let me die - let me go
Death row - I'm ready to go - death row
Let me die - let me go - death row

I'm a dead man walking so get outta my face
Rather die like a man than rotting this way
I hate you and you hate me
You can come and kiss my dignity
You're taking my life for your peace of mind
So let's go - start the show

Death row - I'm ready to go - death row
Let me die - let me go
Death row - I'm ready to go - death row
I'm ready to go - death row - death row

Your justice is not mine
You punish a crime with another crime
If you need to kill me for your peace of mind
Then let's go - start the show

Death row - I'm ready to go - death row
Let me die - let me go
Death row - I'm ready to go - death row
I'm ready to go - death row - death row

Death row - open up ?cause here I come
Death row - knock, knock, knocking
I'm no hero's son
Death row - there's no tears that you can sell
Death row - paid my ticket through the gates of hell

Death row - death row
Let me die - let me go
Death row - death row
