01. Some You Win, Some You Lose

You've never got reason, you've never got rhyme
You've never got money and you never got time
You've never got whiskey, you've never got wine
You've never got drugs, but you always do mine

Your sister morphine, won't get you home
This losing streak your on is the worst I've ever known
You've played your joker, now you'll have to fold
I'll raise you and I'll see you and leave you standing in the cold

You've never got action, you've never got speed
You've never got anythin that I ever need
You've never got nothin, you've never got none
You never got told that you're not the only one

Your sister morphine, won't get you home
This losing streak your on is the worst I've ever known
You've played your joker, now you'll have to fold
I'll raise you and I'll see you and leave you standing in the cold

You've never got reason, you've never got rhyme
You've never got money and you never got time
You've never got whiskey, you've never got wine
You've never got drugs, but you always do mine

Your sister morphine, won't get you home
This losing streak your on is the worst I've ever known
You've played your joker, now you'll have to fold
I'll raise you and I'll see you and leave you standing in the cold

(Some you win, some you lose)


02. One Room, One Axe, One Outcome

Unleash the dogs of war tonight
Like a rabbit in the headlights I'm about to die alright
Don't need no manners when you've got a gun
So gimme back my bullets cos I'm about to come undone

Been drinking whiskey all night long
I know I've got a job to do
So I'm about to do it wrong
Burning my candle at both ends
Obeying orders in the faith that the devil sends

One room for finding myself in
One axe for talking to god
One pill for self-medication
Sweet flesh is all that I've got

Can't stop this now we've come too far
This kind of justice is so bizzarre
These dirty habits die so hard
Like dripping skin, like dripping skin on battle scars

Lets find ourselves a war tonight
Gotta keep this tank a' rollin so were gonna be alright
Who says we have to die so young
When I've got nicotine stains and blisters on my tongue

One room for finding myself in
One axe for talking to god
One pill for self-medication
Sweet flesh is all that I've got


03. Hard Luck

Ain't gonna break my spirit
Ain't gonna break my stride
When you aint got nothin
You got nothin to hide
Its a long hard struggle
Tryin' to live my life
Cos you're born with nothing
Then you work to die

Don't believe it, pass the buck
Hard livin', hard luck

Don't wanna be no preacher
Don't wanna be no king
I'll never rule the roost no
I'll never have everything
And if the hand I'm given
Is gonna grind me down
Then I'm aboard the first train
And heading outta town

Don't believe it, pass the buck
Hard livin', hard fuckin luck

See its all about livin
And how we're not born lucky
It's how we choose to lose
You see I love misfortune
And I cheated on luck
But if it's all forgiven
Then I dont give a fuck

Don't believe it, pass the buck
Hard livin', hard fuckin luck


04. Black Egg

You must be crazy
Or could it be true that your memory's been so unkind
So tired and lazy
You never could search for the things that you wanted to find

Bound by a fear of a knife in your back
The look on your face says your starting to crack
You're putting it down to a dent in your pride
But the misery's sticking to you like a thorn in your side

Can't face the demons
Cos there's not a demon would want to be snared in your eyes
So you say your leaving
And you pack up your bags and you paint on a whole new disguise

Out of the door like a fox on the hunt
There's fire in your eyes someone's gonna get burnt
You're looking for somewhere to lay down and hide
Cos the misery's sticking to you like a thorn in your side

Bound by a fear of a knife in your back
The look on your face says your starting to crack
You're putting it down to a dent in your pride
But the misery's sticking to you, yeah yeah yeah

Out of the door like a fox on the hunt
There's fire in your eyes someone's gonna get burnt
You're looking for somewhere to lay down and hide
Cos the misery's sticking to you like a thorn in your side

You burn bridges
By doing it all for the sake of a little respect
You cut the stitches
By giving it all to the heart of a little black egg

Bound to the cross by the nails in your hand
Your looking for someone you might understand
Carrying on like your spirit has died
Cos the misery's sticking to you like a thorn in your side


05. You're Not The One (Who Can Save Rock'n'Roll)

I was just a boy when I learned how to play
Dreaming of stardom and wealth and champagne
I begged for advice, the skies all turned red
The devil appeared and here's what he said
The planets are shifting beyond my control
You ain't got the blue and you ain't got no soul
And you're not the one who can save rock n roll

Now that I'm old, I'm drunk and I'm broke
I sold my guitar for a gram of bad coke
I begged for forgiveness, the devil appeared
He sat down beside me and said in my ear
The planets are shifting beyond my control
I'll give you the blues in exchange for your soul
And you may be the the one who can save rock n roll

I had to sell my soul to get it right
I had to sell my soul to get me back into the light
And all the darkness running through my bad veins
And all the darkness in my head is gonna drive me insane
Satan took me underneath his wing
He taught me how to play guitar and then he taught me how to sing
So now I'm living like a superstar
I've got the drink, the drugs, the money, all the women and cars

I'm living the life yeah I'm out of control
I'm singing the blues but I ain't got not soul
And now I'm the one who can save rock n roll
I'm living the life yeah I'm out of control
I'm singing the blues but I ain't got not soul
And now I'm the one who can save rock n roll


06. If It Aint Broke, Break It

Look at the grudge I bear, d'ya think I wanna be a part of the scene
Look at the clothes I'm wearing on the pages of your magazine
I do believe that revenge is a dish best served with fear
So all that I'm sayin is that the progress stops here

Listen to what I'm sayin, is it really what you want me to hear
Back in the saddle baby, cos I'm never gonna disappear
I know for a fact that my mind's in a mess but my concience is clear
So all that I'm sayin is that the progress stops here

I'm not the kind who can just run and hide when the going gets tough
I do believe theres a trick up my sleeve when it all gets too much
Day after day, I have toiled away through the blood and the grit
And if it aint broke, we gotta break it

Crawl through the blood
Crawl through the grit
Crawl through the filth
Crawl through the shit
Crawl through the pain
Crawl through the spit

And if it aint broke, you gotta break it

Well look at the scars I bear, d'ya really think I wanna be in the scene
Look at the way you've turned into just another fucking machine
I do believe that revenge is a dish best served with fear
So all that I'm sayin is that the progress stops here

Crawl through the blood
Crawl through the grit
Crawl through the filth
Crawl through the shit
Crawl through the pain
Crawl through the spit
And if it aint broke, you gotta break it
(The progress stops here)


07. Lazy Mary

A new religion, a new war
A new cause worth fighting for
A new reason to rise for the day of the dead
New jacket, new shoes
A new meaning to have nothing to lose
A new dream of redemption running over your head

Old trouble, old foes
Old fire in the belly below
Old battles that rage in the annals of time
Old trooper, old hand
Old general 'bout to make the last stand
Old justice believes in an eye for an eye

Lazy Mary, Lazy Mary, Lazy Mary
Do your dirty deeds, dodge the demons

Mary said you better not face death alone
Bad blood tastes good when it's not your own

Same difference, same face
Same hatred for a fucking disgrace
Same reason you live is the same reason you die
Same honour, same pride
Same respect earned nationwide
Same morals you preach are the morals you hide

Lazy Mary, Lazy Mary, Lazy Mary
Do your dirty deeds, dodge the demons


08. Round Up The Horses

Twelve men ride out from the mountain today
Hell bent on destruction and they're heading your way
Find me a posse of twelve brave men
Tell 'em not to expect to come home again

Dont spare the guns cos they ain't movin too slow
Round up the horses and lets go

I take a shot of whiskey as I mount my steed
Heading down to the canyon where the blood runs free
A dozen outlaw riders charging out from the sun
A gunshot rings out and the battle's begun

Dont spare the guns cos they ain't movin too slow
Round up the horses and lets go

We come around from the east and cut 'em off at the cross
With guns blazin' we ride before the first man is lost

A red rag to a bull, we head up onto the plain
With bullets flyin' around the bodies fall like rain
Last man standing I know, with cordite filling my nose
Gotta saddle up my horse, and head to Mexico

Round up the horses and lets go
Round up the horses and lets go
Round up the horses and lets go
Round up the horses and lets go


09. Tosh Lines

This is the first line of my song
The second line didn't take me all that long
Third line and I'm about to lose control
Fourth line is a lesson in rock n roll

Fifth line is very much like the third
Line six is the best you've ever heard
Seventh line and we're getting near the end
Eighth line and thats your lot my friend.


10. Just Got Paid

I just got paid today,
Got me a pocket full of change.
Said, I just got paid today,
Got me a pocket full of change.
If you believe like workin' hard all day,
Just step in my shoes and take my pay.

I was born my papa's son,
When I hit the ground I was on the run.
I had one glad hand and the other behind.
You can have yours, just give me mine.
When the houd dog barkin' in the black of the night,
Stick my hand in my pocket, everything's all right.

I just got paid today,
Got me a pocket full of change.
Said, black sheep, black, do you got some wool?
Yes, I do, man, my bag is full.
It's the root of evil and you know the rest
But it's way ahead of what's second best.


11. Crown Of Locusts

There's a method in the tyrant's madness
Cold blood on the hands of time
A dark plague on your tainted wisdom
Abhorraton of your hearts and minds

Usurpation of the rights of mankind
Genesis or a new dark age
Clouds form like a crown of locusts
Heavens open with the burning rain

New dawn, new day
New crown, new way
New blood, new breath
New life, new death

Annhilation of those who stand defiant is found
Where scores of carrion rise from under burial grounds

Rise from the mist
Clenched iron fist
Born to the steel
In for the kill

The domination of man will bring the world to its knees
And leave the rule of the crown to spread malicious disease

Rise from the mist
Clenched iron fist
Born to the steel
In for the kill
