Mean, Green, Killing Machine
Somewhere out where no one knows
Runs a cool revolution fight
Way out there where no one goes
And it's got to keep moving, got to keep getting it right
So here's to the piston charged, combustible delight
The single minded supercharged
That' got to get movin', got to keep getting it

A call to arms, a call right through the dream,
A call to action, blow up the in-between
Feed, feed your engine, feed, feed your Wolverine
Feed, feed the tension, mean green killing machine
C'mom, c'mom and say what my name is
Mean, green, killing machine

So Mother Mary gave the nod
The saints bathed in holy light
The machine had hit the lightning rod
It had to keep rolling, rolling on through the night
In the deep, dark underground
With eyes that have no sight
So here's to the battleground
That's got to keep rolling, got to keep rolling tonight

The clock, your only friend as time leaves its debris
Your soul is on the mend but time is killing me
I gave you everything but a machine I'll always be

They got nothing more to add to the conversation
They drink gasoline from a dirty glass
They got nothing but a sad–sad situation
With nothing more to add to the damnation
Nuts & bolts & screws with no social class
They got nothing but a sad–sad situation
It's a sad-sad-sad- sad-sad-sad situation
Nuts & bolts & screws, balls of brass

If you're out where no one goes, where no one cares to lie
Keep'em open don't you blink, I'm talking 'bout, talking 'bout your eyes
It's faster than the speed of light and sonically disguised
There comes the mean green motherfucker, blazing 'cross the sky
 
 
Goddamn Trouble
I felt a little better when the sun went down
I felt a little taller when I got up off the ground
Think I hurt my back when reaching for the top
This goddamn trouble
Ain't never gonna stop
I waited all day 'till they finally called my name
Right to the front of the line, and I brought my A-game
I was eye to eye with a two-wheeled cop
This goddamn trouble
Ain't never gonna stop, never gonna stop

You see it didn't look good for your hero at large
He was stuck in them mud, stuck in the charge
Then they sent him away up the mountain top
Never gonna stop

Pushing the envelope, pull out the rug
Pushing the button, pulling the plug
Too, too much trouble, there goes the rug

I like my trouble tight, who's to say I'm right
Too much, goddamn trouble
All day all night long, who's to say I'm wrong
Too much, goddamn trouble

Made my escape it was child's play
I was back in the race, I was winning the day
Yeah spitting gravel as I passed the cop
Goddamn trouble, just might stop
But I needed a plan and I needed it fast
I was winning the race but losing my ass
A siren blast and my heart did drop
Goddamn trouble, ain't never gonna stop
Never gonna stop
I grabbed a tape from the floor of the car
Jammed it in the dash and it played Highway Star
With a foot of lead and that Chevy hop
Never gonna stop

You can't give it away, selling trouble by the light of day
And I won't give it a thought, what you've sold and what I've bought

We all went down to the river, we all down to the race
We all went down where dead men float, down the river on their face
We all got into some trouble, with a hair not out of place
We all went down to the lazy old river, I tell ya gone without a trace

Goddamn Trouble, it ain't never gonna stop
 
 
Our Finest Hour
I can get you there, it ain't too far from here
On your side, let's take a ride, I'm a metallic engineer
So murder is a sin but weapons set you free
Just hop on in, I'm gonna take you there, you're a lot like me
Beats waiting on the corner, your hand jammed down your pants
Take a ride, take a look and take a chance now, a breakdown circumstance
Stand and pledge allegiance to the air, the land, the sea
Take a ride, take a look, take a chance, you're a lot like me
Can't you see, you're a lot like me, can't you see, it was meant to be
Can't you see, you're a lot like me, can't you see

I'll be your conscience; I'll be your guide
I'll be the black-hand, that stops your genocide
I'll be the understanding, undisputed power
I'll hold your hand, in this our finest hour

Hang on to the handle; we're just about to land
Lock and load, feel the road, keep it close at hand
So murder is a sin, to some it's just a game
Don't make a sound, low to the ground; I know we are the same
Beats waiting for that maybe, ya finger up your nose
Take a ride, take a look, take a chance now baby and strike that badass pose
They haven't got a snowball's chance once they know your name
Take a ride, take a look, take a chance now baby, I know we are the same
Can't you see you're a lot like me, can't you see it was meant to be
Can't you see you're a lot like me, can't you see we were meant to be

Somebody call to the EMS, somebody call to the priest
Somebody lay out a blessing, on the soul of the deceased
Somebody dearly departed, was not praying to the beast
Somebody call our finest hour, on the soul of the deceased
I'm not going easy, in light of all this power
I'm not going easy, in this our finest hour
 
 
Shine on
Someone left the cat out in the rain
Some one left us waiting here to deal with all the pain
Someone else was caught upon the wire
Someone else's life changed when he left the fire

We got no patience but we get through
We got no patience but we got you

All of the complainers shout no fair
All the hurricanes with their fists up in the air
Someone gave the order, kill the pain
Someone else ignored her, left the cat out in the rain

One more fire, 'fore I die, one more fire get me high

Come on down to the fire
Come on down to the flame
Leave you problems behind ya
Shine on doomsday, c'mon on down

The circle closed in tight around the ring
When eagle takes to flight, the scorpion to sting
Someone panicked, someone threw the switch
We all covered up, took shelter in the ditch

We got no patience but we get through
We got no patience but we got you

All of the complainers weren't there
All the hurricaners, took the flight by sea and air
They all panicked, melted in the rain
Someone left the cat out
Put a bullet in her brain

One more fire, 'fore I die, one more fire get me high

I'm losing myself in the rain,
I'm losing myself in the pouring pain
I'm going in, I'm not coming out
It's where I've been, I'm not coming out
I'm losing myself in the rain
I'm losing myself in the pouring pain
 
 
The Long Road
Bring your attitude & bring your will to win
We're going down the mountain, boys,
May take it on the chin
Alert the multitudes, and wear your thickest skin
We're going down the mountain, boys,
Little pig, little pig, let me in

It's not enough to heed the call
It's not enough for the long haul
It's not enough, so give your all
Onward, onward-upward

We've walked the long road a thousand times before
We've held our heads high and kicked right down the door
We've walked the long road a thousand times before

Pack your fortitude, your honor and your fight
We're going down the mountain boys
With an undivided right
Give'em what they came for, by dawn's early light
We're going down the mountain boys
By God man, we will ignite

In the sun, 'til its done, marching on
In the sun, 'til its done, marching on
In the sun, 'til its done
 
 
Let's All Go to Hades
Let's all go to Hades, on a tricked out bullet train
As our glasses overflow with French champagne
Let's all go to paradise on a supersonic jet
We'll drink German beer, roll our own cigarettes

When all the world has gone insane
And filled you up with all its pain
When all you want to do is fucking scream
Do you know what I mean?

Let's all go to gay Paris and lay a rose at the Bataclan
We'll sing "Killed by Death" as we stand arm in arm
Then we'll head to Istanbul on the Orient Express
Wear your biker leather, you're not overdressed

Let's all go, take everyone we know
Jam them all inside the black Mercedes
Let's all ride, 'till everyone is fried
Let's have a ball, let's all go to Hades

The sleeper cars are quite affordable, clean
They're on the hot side, if you know what I mean
Our staff is trained, to be the finest and well
Last stop, all get off... see you in hell

All you motherfuckers check your guns at the door

Let's all go to Hades, on a tricked out bullet train
Let's all go to Hades, just the same
Let's all go to paradise on a supersonic jet
Let's all go to paradise, not yet.
 
 
Come Heavy
I like the feeling of the morning sun
I like the rain on my face in the fall
I come heavy not to be outdone
Come on heavy or don't come at all

I like the scent of a woman's hair
And the way on her shoulder it falls
I come heavy because life ain't fair
I come heavy or I don't come at all

Get you ticket, don't be late
To the great psychotic ball
Don't you stick it, get it straight
Or don't you come at all

I like the beauty of a fresh red rose
And a sip of the fine alcohol
I come heavy from my head to toes
I come heavy like a wrecking ball

All God's angels, give your pain
All my madness, know my name

We made our choices then a steady pulse or fast
You took the higher road, I took the psychopath
The age old question persecutes the good in me
And my relief comes in what will be, will be

Give me all your money. 'till my cup overflow
My mouth is full of honey, my shirt soaked in Bordeaux
 
 
Red, White And Blue
I'm part of the plan, a real live wire
I'm part of the plan and part electrics corps
Born to die, not to lose
There's a light in the eye, it reflects fire
It has the right to apply to what's needed, hearts to soar
Don't mean to imply the light is higher
Nor mean to imply we can be answered for

Another down, another death on you
Others that ignore you hate, doing what they do
Another clown leads the band of fools
Another broken heart, bleeds red, white and blue

I'm part of the plan, a real live wire
I'm part of the plan and part electric sun
Born to die, not to lose
I'm lost in the gone and taking fire
I'm waiting for dawn these colors just won't run
In honor's embrace no harder nor undone

And who'll be the first man to stand in the dark of the night
And who is the last of the last men to make it all right, damn right
A complicated problem and the question is the answer
You can give me liberty or I can give you death
Damn right
And if this man falls who will carry this flag to the flight
And if this man falls who will carry him out of his night, damn right
It's a simple answer to a brotherhood in blood
You can give us liberty or we can give you death
Damn right, you can give us liberty or we can give you death
 
 
The Wheel
I got a real bad feeling about where you're coming from
I got a real good sense of evil and it tell me you're the one
And I'd love to sit to have a drink to feel
And I'd love to quit the war and think, but I must grease the wheel

I don't meet what's called you kind everyday
I have spun across the universe, on the funeral highway
And I love to sit, to lick my wounds and heal
Or soar around the blue moon, but I must fix the wheel

I am the wheel, a turbine that is spinning in the night, and I'm all right
Of stone and steel, yes a reflection what you think about me
Yes but can you live without me, yes I feel, I am the wheel

Turn like a spinning top, burn and you never stop, I got the fever and feel for the wheel
Here comes Mr. Wonderful, with his new magnetic deal
There goes Mr. Kiss My Ass with everything he steals
Turn like a spinning top, burn and you never stop, I got a feel for the wheel

I'd love to sit to have a drink to feel
And I'd love to quit this war and think, but I must grease the wheel
And I love to sit, to lick my wounds and heal
Or soar around the blue moon, but I must fix the wheel
 
 
The Grinding Wheel
A bed of nails, cold dark deep refrigeration
I hear it calling me
A broken rail as he drools over the congregation
I hear it calling me
Now I won't tell you how to live your life
I never saw the point in thinking twice
I turn the wheel by day, by night
Raise your flag
Here's to the liberation

Day by day I move in time
Turn the wheel, pay for my crimes

The miller's horse is wearing down
He bangs his heart on Halloween ground
The miller hears a single sound
The sound of the grinding wheel goes round and round

The ship has sailed to dark sea destinations
The gods are hailed for their absentee observations
I feel it holding me
Now I can't tell you where integrity hides
It showed its face, you struck it down and it died
I turn my wheel with a seamless pride
Raise your flag
Here's to the revolution
The pain is all you ever feel
A concrete will, and a back of steel
I give my soul unto the wheel
Get it done

Eye off of the needle, in the heart of the sun
Stuck in the middle, Whit the blazing one
This weathered hand, has a grip of steel
These eyes have seen it all; catch your spirit on the grinding wheel
Say you prayers, say what you feel
Count your blessings, make a deal
What you borrow, what you steal
Crush it all, on the grinding wheel
 
 
Emerald
(by Thin Lizzy.)
Down from the glen came the marching men
With their shields and their swords
To fight the fight they believed to be right
Overthrow the overlords

To the town where there was plenty
They brought plunder, swords and flame
When they left the town was empty
Children would never play again

From their graves I heard the fallen
Above the battle cry
By that bridge near the border
There were many more to die

Then onward over the mountain
And outward towards the sea
They had come to claim the Emerald
Without it they could not leave
