01. Orgasmatron

I am the one, Orgasmatron, the outstretched grasping hand
My image is of agony, my servants rape the land
Obsequious and arrogant, clandestine and vain
Two thousand years of misery, of torture in my name
Hypocrisy made paramount, paranoia the law
My name is called religion, sadistic, sacred whore.

I twist the truth, I rule the world, my crown is called deceit
I am the emperor of lies, you grovel at my feet
I rob you and I slaughter you, your downfall is my gain
And still you play the sycophant and revel in you pain
And all my promises are lies, all my love is hate
I am the politician, and I decide your fate

I march before a martyred world, an army for the fight
I speak of great heroic days, of victory and might
I hold a banner drenched in blood, I urge you to be brave
I lead you to your destiny, I lead you to your grave
Your bones will build my palaces, your eyes will stud my crown
For I am Mars, the god of war, and I will cut you down.


02. Deaf Forever

Stoneface dog, swirling fog, gates open on the dark dark night
Standing stone, skull and bone, dead witness to an unseen fight
Beat the drum, beat the drum, beat forever on the endless march
Stricken dumb, cut and run, someone is screaming and the sky is dark

Sword and shield, bone and steel, rictus grin
Deaf forever to the battles din

March or croak, flame and smoke, burn forever in eternal pain
Charge and fall, bugle call, bone splinter in the driving rain
Horses scream, Viking dream, drowned heroes in a lake of blood
Armoured fist, severed wrist, broken spears in a sea of mud

Sword and shield, bone and steel, rictus grin
Deaf forever to the battles din

Mother earth, mother earth enfold you in her cold embrace
Sinking down, killing ground, worm crawling on your cold white face
Win or lose, nought to choose, all men are equal when their memory fades
No one knows, friends or foes, if Valhalla lies beyond the grave

Sword and shield, bone and steel, rictus grin
Deaf forever to the battles din


03. Ain't My Crime

I don't believe a word, I know you tell me lies
Just watch me flip the bird, right in your lyin' eyes
You just can't figure out, why I'm the way I am
I'm low-life born and bred, and I don't give a damn

I've had enough, I'm stepping out of line
Ain't gonna stop me babe, you ain't worth a dime
You nearly had me fooled, wastin' my time
You might've broke my heart
And if you broke my heart
I know it ain't my crime

I'm here to tell you, was here and now I'm gone
You need a wages slave, but I sure ain't the one
I'm moving off the lot, just hire another act
I don't need what you got, that ain't where I'm at

I've had enough, I'm stepping out of line
Ain't gonna stop me babe, you ain't worth a dime
You nearly had me fooled, wastin' my time
You might've broke my heart
And if you broke my heart
I know it ain't my crime

Just show me the door, here I go again
I seen it all before, happens now and then
No tears in your eyes, sure ain't none in mine
Two people in disguise, frozen in time


04. Claw

Watching you watching me
I was hoping you'd be here tonight
Watching him watching you
He'd better watch out too
'Coz he keeps getting in my light
I think he's going overload
Don't know what you're running for
He thinks he's got you where he wants you babe
But he don't understand the power of the claw
The claw, the claw, the claw

You know me I know you
We both know what we came here fore
And he think he knows you
He thinks he's got you too
Gonna make him cry for sure
He's going to have to make his own way home
I don't know what's he's smiling for
He thinks you're gonna keep your promises babe
But he don't understand the power of the claw
The claw, the claw, the claw

Me walking up to you
And whisper in your eager ear
You whisper back to me
And he begins to see
He feel the claw is near.

And so the ballet starts again
Exit stage left through the door
And we begin the horizontal dance
And he begins to know just what the claw is for
The claw, the claw, the claw, the claw
The claw, the claw, the claw, the claw

You know just what the claw is for
You know just what the claw is for
You know just what the claw is for
I know what my claw is for


05. Built For Speed

You know the rules, you all know the game
Try and do whats right
And I swear I can't complain
If I die tonight
But I don't think its in the stars
For me to go that way
I'll be here for a long, long time babe
I'm here to stay

I was born to rock'n'roll, everything I need
I was born with the hammer down
I was built for speed.

Bet your life it ain't no easy money
But you won't hear me bitch
Spent a long time wrecked and funny
I've got the ten year itch

See me running all around the world
Trying to make some time
A million miles, a million girls
A million real good times

I was born to rock'n'roll, everything I need
I was born with the hammer down
I was built for speed.

Don't you listen to a single word
Against rock'n'roll
The new religion, the electric church
The only way to go
I don't give a good goddam
My lifes been alright
I'm gonna crazy out of my mind
Every single night.

I was born to rock'n'roll, everything I need
I was born with the hammer down
I was built for speed.


06. Nothing Up My Sleeve

You're playing tricks babe, and that's a fact
Your magic circle ain't where's its at
One moment you were here, and then you disappeared
This ain't the first time that I've caught your act

Nothing up my sleeve, babe
Watch out, watch out
Magic's what you need, babe
Just like that.

You know your slight of hand is messing up my life
Maybe this time babe you're gonna get it right
One moment I was there, now just an empty chair
This ain't the first time you've shout out my lights

Nothing up my sleeve, babe
Watch out, watch out
Magic's what you need, babe
Just like that.

Saw me in half babe, and that's quite a trick
You make me laugh babe, you make me sick
I'm gone but now you lack the spell to bring me back
This ain't the first time I've seen your magic slip

Nothing up my sleeve, babe
Watch out, watch out
Magic's what you need, babe
Just like that.


07. Mean Machine

Midnight runaway, know you're running scared
Bright lights, big city, nobody seems to care
Open your eyes who's there, who's there
Open your eyes, nightmare
Unclean, fever dream on the high side, in the Mean Machine

Black bomber in the night, can you handle the pain
Better call the FBI, better change your name
Open your eyes, oh no, oh no
Open your eyes, creepshow
Unclean, fever dream, on the wild side in the Mean Machine

Unclean, fever dream, take a ride Mean Machine
Wet dream, bad scene, we don't care where you been
On the screen, movie queen, things ain't always
What they seem. stay clean, crazy dream
Off the high side in the Mean Machine


08. Riding With The Driver

Iron child out of Vulcans forge, metal scream and thrash
Red steel in the driving wheel, hear the pistons clash
Dragon breathin' big black smoke, howlin' up the tracks

I'm ridin' on the Thunderchief, spit in the devil's eye
No force on earth can stop me now
Like to see 'em try
Hey, hey ridin' with the Driver

Juggernaut comin' down the line, hear the banshee cry
Engineer like to lose his mind. glory in his eye
Too fast to live this way, too young to die

I'm ridin' on the Thunderchief, spit in the devil's eye
No force on earth can stop me now
Like to see 'em try
Hey, hey ridin' with the Driver

Hold tight, feel the drivers bite, hear the whistle moan
Engine rockin' to the left and right, vibratin' in my bones
Once the locomotive steals your soul, you got a Casey Jones

I'm ridin' on the Thunderchief, spit in the devil's eye
No force on earth can stop me now
Like to see 'em try
Hey, hey ridin' with the Driver

I'm ridin' on the Thunderchief, spit in the devil's eye
No force on earth can hurt me now, kiss your ass goodbye
My my, ridin' with the Driver
