01. Cowboy Way

YEAH!!!
Ya see I left my soul by the side of the road,
Somewhere down in Texas,
Where the minister spoke,
Said boy ya better find god,
Cause you're destined for sin
So I did a shot and smiled,
With a black-tooth grin,

What ever you say,
What ever you think,
Cowboy,
Hillbilly what ever you say
We love 'em and leave 'em,
It's just a cowboy's way,
Outlaw or redneck what ever you think,
What's mine is mine,
What's yours is mine,
It's just a cowboy's way

YEAH!!!
Ya see I sold my soul at the cross in the road,
Somewhere down in Texas where the devil had spoke,
Said boy you wanna be somebody sign on the line,
I said I gotta raise some hell so I ain't got the time,

What ever you say,
What ever you think,
Cowboy,
Hillbilly what ever you say
We love 'em and leave 'em,
It's just a cowboy's way,
Outlaw or redneck what ever you think,
What's mine is mine,
What's yours is mine,
It's just a cowboy's way

It's just a Cowboys's
It's just a Cowboys's
It's just a Cowboys's
It's just a Cowboys's way

Reckless and worthless,
Ya can't understand,
Ain't got no reason to give a fuck,
Just don't give a damn

It's just a Cowboys's
It's just a Cowboys's
It's just a Cowboys's
It's just a Cowboys's way

Cowboy,
Hillbilly what ever you say
We love 'em and leave 'em,
It's just a cowboy's way,
Outlaw or redneck what ever you think,
What's mine is mine,
What's yours is mine,
It's just a cowboy's way
It's just a cowboy's...


02. Debt That All Men Pay

You wanna understand this,
But you don't know me except for what I told ya,
Except for what I've shown ya,
I'll crush all crisis in my life, and live it my own way,
I've left t he weakness built by fools and brought the rage
Fracture, rupture, shatter your world
Hammer, butcher, slaughter your world
I am the debt that all men pay,
To die with honor, to die with strength
I am the debt that all men pay,
Won't die a coward,
Won't die in vain, no
You think you own me?
Well you can't own this!
I'm a fucking soldier,
A goddamn warrior,
I made a prom- ise to myself to rid my life of pain,
I'll tow the line of pride in mind and leave behind disgrace
My wish, my choice, my rule, my world
My voice, my right, my cause, my world
I am the debt that all men pay,
To die with honor,
To die with strength
I am the debt that all men pay,
Won't die a coward,
Won't die in vain, no
I fought this war and won,
My one salvation has forsaken me,
My hero's long since gone away
They told me long ago to choose my battles one by one and fight to death until the bitter end
I am the debt that all men pay,
To die with honor, to die with strength
I am the debt that all men pay
I am the debt that all men pay


03. Hell Of A Time

It's just the good ol' boy in me
I got my friends I got the recipe
For one hell of a life

I got my girl got my family
Got my booze and that's all I need
For a hell of a time

Yeah, come monday morning
My head is storming, gotta get it right
I've got my boss and I've got my bills
But I'm towing the line
So sick of that man on my case all day long

Another day in the trenches
Fpo these sons of a bitches
Well it dont seem right
They'll keep me poor, while I keep them rich
But I got my eye on the prize

Gotta get to the weekend
Gotta make it to Friday night
Friday night yeaah come on!

It's just the good ol' boy in me
I got my friends I got the recipe
For one hell of a life
I got my girl got my family
Got my booze and that's all I need
For a hell of a time
Hall of a time!

Six o'clock in the morning my head is spinning
Here we go again
Im walking the line one dat at a time
For that goddamn man
Cant wait till they bury him, six feet down

I've got my pride and I've got my will
I aint fucking around
I was born to lose but Im built for booze
Cant wait to knock them down

Gotta get to the weekend
Gotta make it to Friday night
Friday night yeaah

It's just the good ol' boy in me
I got my friends I got the recipe
For one hell of a life
I got my girl got my family
Got my booze and that's all I need
For a hell of a time
Hall of a time!

Gotta take the red eye

Just as long as I can stay high

Come on!

It's just the good ol' boy in me
I got my friends I got the recipe
For one hell of a life
I got my girl got my family
Got my booze and that's all I need
For a hell of a time yeaah!

It's just the good ol' boy in me
Drinking whiskey down by the creek
It's one hell of a life
(It's one hell of a life)

I got my girl and my boys with me
Getting stoned down on the beach
It's one hell of a time
(It's one hell of a time)

That's right!


04. Stampede

From the very beginning,
Knew I had something in me,
A vision worthy of listening,
But they said sit down boy,
And they laughed at me gave me attention,
Became my dissension,
Right there made the decision,
You're on your own boy,

So I became a man
You'll never understand what you've created

Stampede, running over me,
Death angels riding,
It feels like I'm dying
Stampede, that's crush-ing me,
My temperature's rising,
The demons inside me,

Tear away all conviction,
Beat him into submission,
Threatening my existence,
And abuse the boy,
I'm numb to violence
Buried deep, buried under,
Like a nail- beating hammer,
I'm the storm, I'm the thunder,
I'm the lighting boy, no more striking me,

I am the butcher,
I've come to slaughter

Stampede, running over me,
Death angels riding,
It feels like I'm dying
Stampede, that's crushing me,
My temperature's rising,
The demons inside me,

I am the wind,
I am the rain,
I am the flood,
I am what you've created,
And you've gone too far,

Stampede,
Running over me,
Death angels riding,
It feels like I'm dying,
Stampede,
That's crushing me,
My temperature's rising,
The demons inside me


05. Better Man

I know my enemy and I can't forget his name,
Distant memories of a man that just couldn't change,
And though I've tried to set aside,
I still carry them today
When I look into the mirror I can still see his face,
Oh lord

Don't want to be like my father,
I deserved a better man,
A bigger man to help me down my road
I cried a tear for my mother,
She deserved a better man,
A stronger man,
To embrace her soul
Ruined by a weaker man,
A shallow man,
The one who broke our home

Though I was a young boy I can still remember everything,
All the booze led to fights and abuse
And I lived through it every day
And though I try,
To heal inside,
My heart is just a vault for pain,
I tried to snuff the candle,
But I've been burnt by the flame,
It's too late

Don't want to be like my father,
I deserved a better man,
A bigger man to help me down my road
I cried a tear for of my mother,
She deserved a better man,
A stronger man,
To embrace her soul
Ruined by a weaker man,
A shallow man,
The one who broke our home

Saw him twenty years later in a store buyin' a jug of wine
He said "hey there boy I'm living nearby
We could catch up with a joint and share a bottle or two"
I said "I'm sorry dad, don't wanna end up being you...no"

Don't want to be like my father,
I cried a tear for my mother,
She deserved a better man,
A stronger man,
To embrace her soul
Ruined by a weaker man,
A shallow man,
The one who broke our home


06. It's On!

You can't fight it,
No you got ta feed it to the fire,
Hold your feet to the flames,
You got it burnin',
Stinging for the reason afterburning like a jet airplane
you got ta build it till the scaffold hits the ceiling,
Let me tell you it's a danger- ous place,
You can't stop it raging like a pyre,
Got more power than a runaway train it's in stereo,
It's my heroin, gotta make my way to t he stage scream, my call so real, so raw,
Take, my own, manipulate,
I'm in,
It's on ya can't stop it,
No you can't rob it,
It's an attitude of pure gasoline,
You get that feeling that's filling up the building and it's blowing like a powder keg,
You gotta bring it and cave in the goddamn ceiling,
Own the pit and fucking dance t ill you bleed
It sit s inside me, rebellion and uprising,
Like the shotgun blast that laid you to waste
It's in stereo,
It's my heroin,
Gotta make my way to the stage scream,
My call so real, so raw,
Take, my own,
Manipulate,
I'm in,
It's on,
Teeth, brick wall,
Grit, bear all force,
I own,
Annihilate,
Clench fist,
It's on it's in stereo,
It's my heroin,
Gotta make my way to the stage scream,
My call so real,
So raw,
Take,
My own,
Manipulate,
I'm in,
It's on,
Teeth,
Brick wall,
Grit, bear all force,
I own,
Annihilate,
Clench fist,
It's on


07. Pole Rider

Don't give a damn about promise,
Or a diamond ring she's not built for comfort,
She's built for speed
She got a chip on her shoulder,
A devious little thing
She knows how to get what she wants,
Don't give a damn what you t hink she don't care where she's going,
But she's always ready to go
She's at her best when
She's ridin' the pole,
If you got the cash,
You got one hell of a show
She's up,
She's down,
She's a pole rider
She's on,
She burns,
She's hot,
She's on fire,
She's up,
She's down,
She's a pole rider
She's in,
She's up,
She's on,
She'll make your sunrise

She knows just how to work ya,
Little winks and a grin
She ain't built for virtue,
She's built for sin
She ain't the little angel mom and daddy might think
She threw away her halo,
And she clipped off her wings,
She's gotta get what you're holding and she's ready to show
She's at her best when she's ridin' the pole,
If you got the cash,
You got one hell of a show
She knows what she wants,
And she knows what she needs
She knows she needs money,
To buy her shiny things
She knows what you want,
And she knows what you need
Ya better know it takes money,
To get her on her knees
She don't care where she's going,
She's always ready to go
She's at her best when she's ridin' the pole,
If you got the cash,
You got one hell of a show
She's up,
She's down,
She's a pole rider
She's on,
She burns,
She's hot,
She's on fire,
She's up,
She's down,
She's a pole rider
She's in,
She's up,
She's on,
She'll make your sunrise


08. Cold As A Stone

I've got a hole in my heart and I made it just for you
I've got something up my sleeve,
I wanna show you,
It's my life's work of tragedy and turbulence,
Now come with me and take a walk through violence,
I can't help it that I'm sick,
Or claustrophobic in my skin

Cold as a stone,
Hollow eyes and empty soul
Broken like a bone,
In a vice,
Heart like coal

I've got a hole in my head and I put it there because of you,
I wrote something in this note that I left for you,
It's all because of your selfish lack of love for me,
I hope that my head on the wall will always remind you,
Morbid pictures in your head,
I'm so sorry for the mess

Cold as a stone,
Hollow eyes and empty soul
Broken like a bone,
In a vice,
Heart like coal

Dry your eyes,
It was time for me to leave,
Don't cry it was just my time and all you did was help me

Cold as a stone,
Hollow eyes and empty soul
Broken like a bone,
In a vice,
Heart like coal

Cold as a stone,
Empty soul
Broken like a bone,
Heart like coal


09. Stand Or Walk Away

I was told that life is beautiful,
Well I'm not looking through those eyes,
Wished upon a star and watched it fall away,
Well that's just one more thing,
That could never be forever,
Everything I touch turns to the opposite of gold,
It could be shit,
It could be coal,
That's just the way it goes,
Do I lead them astray,
Do I push them all away,
I feel so cold,
From the exit of my soul

Don't know whether I should kill or cry,
Don't know if I should live or die,
Should I stand or walk away
Don't know whether I should be myself or change
Hold my ground or rearrange
Should I stand or walk away

I've been told that we live and learn,
As I look through tear-soaked eyes,
I'm full of scars but I'm not made of stone,
And my heart's exposed,
My transparent life of terror
A sacred promise that's sealed by a ring of gold,
It can't be bought,
It can't be sold,
But you have to keep a hold,
Did I throw it away,
Because of my ways,
It feels so cold,
Now that I have lost my soul

Don't know whether I should kill or cry,
Don't know if I should live or die,
Should I stand or walk away
Don't know whet her I should be myself or change
Hold my ground or rearrange
Should I stand or walk away

My stomach aches as I feel the sting
That runs through me
Lay my head into my hands,
Falling to the ground,
I look up to the sky,
Please help me find my way back home

Don't know whether I should kill or cry,
Live or die,
Should I stand or walk away
Don't know whether I should be myself or change
Rearrange
Should I stand or walk away


10. Alive And Well

We gotta get that something,
That little bit of anything,
Anyway,
Gotta do it for the dough,
Gotta go,
'cause money makes you smile,
Don't ya know
Those little people that'll fuck ya,
Do whatever they can just to get ahead,
No matter what,
No matter why,
No matter who,
No matter how,
No better time than now,

I'm always fighting,
Am I alive and well or just wasting space
My endless search for peace of mind
Am I living life or just wasting time
Trying to secure this piece of mine

Put your money where your mouth is,
Stuff it in,
Stuff it fat,
Stuff it full,
Gotta get a bank roll,
Gotta show
'cause being rich is a bitch,
Don't ya know
The fat cats that'll take ya for everything,
Right in front of your face just to get a taste,
Anything,
Anyone,
Anyplace,
Anytime
'cause what you got's not yours is mine.
I'm always fighting,

Am I alive and well or just wasting space,
My endless search for peace of mind,
Am I living life or just wasting time
Trying to secure this piece of mine
Am I the living dead,
Just a fool in line
Waiting here to be robbed blind
Have I given up or just giving in
And let go of all that's mine

Gotta get it,
Gotta have it,
I want it,
So I'll just take it

Am I alive and well or just wasting space,
My endless search for peace of mind,
Am I living life or just wasting time
Trying to secure this piece of mine
Am I the living dead,
Just a fool in line
Waiting here to be robbed blind
Have I given up or just giving in
And let go of all that's mine


11. Order The Sun

Pain and grief,
Keep us suffering
Send the poor to war,
Send the rich up to their suite
Stranglehold,
Hope unbeknown to me
A sentence for the feeble and acquittals for the king
Command the gods,
Destroy the gods

Order the sun to fall from the sky,
So you can keep us in the dark,
For the rest of our lives,
Demand the oceans to freeze and ice
So you can walk upon the water like
Jesus Christ

They want that we need,
All hail to the chief
Have the meager take the dive,
To the affluent victory,
It amazes me,
The influence money brings
Taxes for the homeless,
And diamonds for the queen
Command the gods,
Destroy the gods

Order the sun to fall from the sky,
So you can keep us in the dark,
For the rest of our lives,
Demand the oceans to freeze and ice,
So you can walk upon the water like
Jesus Christ

You've got our blood upon your hands,
The foundation crumbling,
As the demons sing
Charge rockets to the sun,
Sever blessings one by one,
And let the angels weep
You've got our blood upon your hands,
The foundation crumbling,
As the demons sing
Charge rockets to the sun,
Sever blessings one by one,
And let the angels weep

Order the sun to fall from the sky,
So you can keep us in the dark,
For the rest of our lives,
Demand the oceans to freeze and ice,
So you can walk upon the water like
Jesus Christ
You're not my god,
You're not Jesus Christ
