Come And Get It
Think that I know you, but I just can't place the face
Got something to show you, it can never be replaced
Wherever we walk, wherever we fly
Wherever we live, wherever we die
Think that I know you, but I just can't say goodbye

This is it
Hey now, don't it make you feel better? Come and get it!
This is it
Here we go, we going to fly
Come and get it!
This is it
Hey now, don't it make you feel better? Come and get it!
This is it
Here we go, we going high
Come and get it!

Remember the rising when the lightning filled the air
No compromising in a strapped electric chair, you were there
We never could walk, we always could fly
We never could live, we always could die
Think that I know you but I just can't talk, too high
Think that I know you but I just talk too high
Over your horse and ride

Do you know a better way to make it all good inside?
All the friends have died away, by a new law they abide
And all Gods' children, there they go, judgement on their side
Do you know a better way, to make it all good inside?
And I cry does it make you feel better, sing it

All Gods' children, there they go, taking the free ride
 
 
Electric Rattlesnake
Just can't win for losing, stare'em in the eye
An ego made for bruising, a heart that you can't buy
If patience is a virtue, let's set out to sin
I'm all worked up in the desert heat, here I go again
I never seem to smile, you'll find me in the dirt
Your lovable reptile, yeah for what it's worth
I'm poison to your happiness, poison to this song
C'mon down, c'mon down to the ground so we can sing along

Plug me in, yeah, now set me free
I got a two fang grip that you should see
All wrapped up down, 'round your leg
Let me loose, I'm a powder keg
I love you

More
Than you can take
Make no mistake
I'm an Electric Rattlesnake
More
Than you can take
A two fang break
Electric Rattlesnake
All curled up, make no mistake
Two fang deep, got skin to break
Plug me in, got to shake and bake
Electric Rattlesnake
More
Than you can take
No mistake
Electric Rattlesnake

I'm ya satisfaction, give ya skin a glow
The number one attraction, apples packed to go
C'mon down the garden, original sin
Got a two fang bite in the overnight, here I go again
All about just living, living this or that
Shake it up and lay it out, the pigs are getting fat
Bite me as I slither, rape me as I bake
Plug me in baby, then turn me on
I'm your Electric Rattlesnake

Snake bite, color my imagination
In a spiral dream, a hallucination
It comes to me with no reservation
I got the taste, do you mind?
Snake bite, color my imagination
Like a spiral dream of illumination
It fills me up like a medication
I got the taste, do you mind, here I go again
 
 
Wish You Were Dead
He got retribution
He got loaded guns
Uses silver bullets in the chamber
And shoots them just for fun

He got the solution
Got long lasting pride
He got silver lining in his pocket
And a bag full of alibis

Hey baby, shine the light on me
As I shoot across the sky
Hey baby, I'm your Superman
And somebody gonna die

Got me spinning in circles
Got me towing the line
Got me into the mess I'm in
But the speed has made me blind

Got me spinning in circles
Hanging by a thread
If I had one wish to use, I swear it
I wish you were dead

It's a shallow constitution
It's only homicide
You only get what you make it to be
But your request is denied

Sweet electrocution
Sweeter than the bride
Put an X on the hollow eyes
So we all know that they've died

Hey baby, shine the light on me
As I shoot across the sky
It's all up to Batman
And somebody's gonna die, don't ask why

We got our retribution
Got the final done
We got the spark, we hit the mark
And the killing's just begun

Sweet electrocution
Sweeter by your side
Let it go, let it fly to the sky
And we die

Here we go again! x2

Got me spinning in circles
Got me towing the line
Got me into the mess I'm in
But the speed has made me blind

Got me spinning in circles
Hanging by a thread
If I had one wish to use, I swear it
I wish you were dead

Wish you were dead
 
 
Black Daze
Name the father, son & the fixer
And to the warmth we all feel inside
Strap it on and pour the elixir
To the days we count as alive

Concrete Jesus in a hell of a fix
He makes his living on a heavy-handed mix
More

Black daze, white haze
Shoot me down the adrenaline highway
Black daze, white haze
Shoot me up, count me alive

Seem to pray whenever I need it
Seem to sin whenever I want
Strap it on intending to bleed it
An easy mark, so nonchalant

Concrete Jesus got the law on his side
He gets his kicks pissing on my pride
Call in the fixer
More

Amputated spirit, executed soul
None but the shell of before
Exterminated feel it as it fills the hole
Here them screaming, they want more
More
 
 
Save Yourself
Twisting and turning the incessant burning of night
Never quite learning the truth, wrong versus right
Wings that are broken, words never spoken in flight
The future now open, then flashes to hide out of sight

Don't you look so fucking sad, I'll beat you like you never had
Can't hide behind the purity, they'll be no more security
God's not here to serve you now, I'm here to give and show you how

Darkness and light
Naked disaster
Only you can save yourself
Save yourself
Make it go faster
Only you can save yourself
Save yourself

Deadly sensation, the cold liquidation unfolds
Disintegration, in pure isolation they fold
Wheels that are broken, once were outspoken and rolled
The future now open, explode to lose all control

Black ring painted 'round your heart, this is where we're going to start
Can't hide behind that riddled soul, I can see right through the holes
God don't want to beat about, let's clean it up and sort it out

Twisting and turning, the incessant burning
Twisting and turning, burn, burn, burn, burn
 
 
Drop the Hammer Down
Hold your feet to the fire
Hold your face to the ground
Hold on tight, you're a target baby
Drop the hammer down
I'm a long life, loving hate
I'm a bomb that makes no sound
Could you please, would you loosen these
I'm about to fucking drown

Lowdown and overloaded, keeping you alive
I see that you've exploded
On the other side
Lowdown and lowdown, kicking it around
I see that you've exploded
Drop the hammer down

In a mock execution
In a house of gag and bound
Not the best solution
Drop the hammer down
I'm a long life, hating love
I'm under my dirt mound
If you could stand where we stood
We're not fucking around

Let's hear it for the black and blue
For the tortured soul, for the battered crew
Three cheers for the black and blue
Raise a glass to the beaten down
To their dignity and bloodless frown
Three cheers for the beaten down

Drop dead dreams in a deep, dirt ditch
Buried by a shovel hand
Dead screams from the son of a bitch
Coming out to beat the band
Oh baby how I love your bite
Turn my smile upside down
Oh baby how I hate your light
As you drop the hammer down
 
 
21st Century Man
Suck it up, it's a new sensation
He's a 21st century man
Hooked on into the new vibration
You can tell by shaking his hand
Feeling his head throb, he lights up a flash mob

Hey damnation, watch him go now, a better battle plan

Hey mutation, techno freak how, 21st century man
Hey damnation, in your face, he does the best I can
Hey mutation, outer space for the 21st century man

Suck it up as the worlds collide
He's a 21st century man
Living large than he's cast aside
There's got to be a better plan
Preparing for the next war, iPhone in his hand

Feeling his heart jump, turn up the heat pump

All the colors turn to gray
The innocence has gone away
Too much info here to stay
21st century man

Suck it up, and the masturbation
Said the 21st century man
I'm hooked on into a goodbye nation
You can tell by his futile hands
He's heading down the fast road
Limited attention span
Feeling his soul burn
Never did quite learn
 
 
Old Wounds, New Scars
We ran it out, took another chance
Between the real and the disappear
We turned about, did the devil's dance
Screamed we got to get on out of here
There's no rest for the hunted
They only live to stay alive
So we took our chance with the devil's dance
And kicked it into overdrive

First in and last out, a thorn in the side
First in to fight, let it ride

Got a lot of mouth for a Jersey white boy
Beat the drum, now you've gone too far
Drag it out, eat it up, enjoy
Old wounds, brand new scars

The screams would come, keep us up at night
I couldn't even sleep a wink
Now I beat the drum, find a strange delight
Knowing the my eyes don't blink
There's no meat for the hungry
They only eat to stay alive
So we screamed so loud, that we cleared the clouds
And cheered the swan to dive

The screams would come, keep us up at night
I couldn't even sleep a wink
Now I beat the drum, find a strange delight
Knowing the my eyes don't blink
...Head don't think

So you see my friend, there is no end, this was only yesterday
So we burned the hope, we took all the dope
It what you carry what it weigh
There's no hope for the hunted, he only play to live by chance
And the overdrive kept us all alive, as the fires burned
At the devil's dance
 
 
All Over But the Shouting
Once upon a time
When you had us all in line
Thought that we would never learn
The word out on the street
Was you never felt the heat
Even when the fires burned
Then the dogs of war
Barking at your door
Is this what it's all about?
So we broke the deal
It's how it made us feel
Drummer started on the shout

Heard a thousand drummers on a solitary light
Heat of a thousand summers explode into the night
They hid behind the curtains, their faces were concealed
A voice above the ashes screamed
I want to make a deal
I'm back on my heels

Hell raising, drums blazing
All over but the shouting now
Hell raising, drums blazing
Careful what you wish for, you may get it now
Hell raising, drums blazing
All over but the shouting now

The look upon your face
When we blew it into space
And let the pieces fall about
Destruction on the ground
The heart of freedom found
In a voice could only shout
The pain would go away
The pride inside would stay
The blood is dripping you're alive
The ones that stood and fell
Were all remembered well
The cross of an animal 5

Cold calculation got them to fall into line
Annihilation, got them working the shine
They scream and shout
All over but the
Beat generation in a room full of war
Evacuation as the stones hit the door
They want out, all over but the shout

So, once upon a time
When we lit the line
Thought that we would never learn
The word out on the street
They melted in the heat
Even when the fires burned
Then the dogs of war
Scratching at your door
Is it what it's all about?
So we broke the deal
For everything you steal
We start the drummer on the shout
 
 
Good Night
Hey man, what's it gonna be?
Indecision is killing me
Hey now, turn around
As you're clawing at the ground
It's about to get away
Living in America
Got the mass hysteria
Burning on the right
As you're putting up a fight
And it's just the price to pay
For another perfect day

Show me a good thing, give me the time
Burn on the left wing, scene of the crime
No need begging give me all your money
There's a flat dope fee if all ya want is honey
Show me a good thing, got no more time

Hey man, it's a wild thing
Getting what you're going to bring
Hey now, let it out
As it covers up the doubt
And you keep the dogs at bay
Living in the perfect dream
Riding on the laser beam
Tuck'em in at night
Get a sweet dream bite
And that's just the way it goes
The whole thing fucking blows

Here we come and there they go, in the ever fading light
There's a nightmare waiting, don't you know, it's time to say good night
And all the sweet dreams tucked away, the devil out to fight
There's a nightmare waiting, don't you know, it's time to say good night
Good night kiss

Good night
