Track Name: This Movie Sucks
This Movie Sucks

Thrill seeking college kids looking like the cast of Friends with minutes winding down
Mutated canibal, hillbilly inbreds slice and dice and drown
Tonight someone is gonna eat themselves a bloody pie
Tonight that snobby blonde that you love to hate is gonna go bye bye

That's right man
This movie sucks!
A nipplopolis of blood and guts
I can't get enough!

And if you're leaving with your high-hat on
take your art films out the door
Why don't lighten up about the cutting edge
cause you just can't take the gore?

Three headed manticore banging on the bedroom door
Delivery from Hell
Eight legged succubus hanging on a web of guts and living in the well
There's a new abomination every night lurking in the dark
It's a B movie double feature on tonight so look out for the demon shark!

So if you're sick and tired of reality
and your friends are such a bore
Why don't you turn it off and come on over here
where they writhe upon the floor?

Writhe!
Writhe!
You know they're writhing in the gore
Writhe!
Writhe!
They'll keeping you coming back for more
Track Name: Flying High On A Burning Plane
Flying High on a Burning Plane

Wasted in the park at 4 AM
We drink deep to Dionysis
A toast that never ends
We sacrifice the daytime to the night
To be immortal, to be a god till morning's light

We drink like we're obsessed
and we rock like we're possessed
We're flying high on a burning plane
The worms are crawling in our brains, driving us insane

I wouldn't trade this night for anything
The warm dark air is blowing by the winos in the ring
Fearlessly we find the best times yet
From the things we can't remember to the things we won't forget

We drink like we're obsessed
and we rock like we're possessed
We're flying high on a burning plane
The worms are crawling in our brains, driving us insane

Long ago I came across some dogs out in the dark
They were living in the moment and they asked if I'd take part
So we ran down to the river and there was music playing loud
It said "The jaws of night are open wide. Step inside"
So we did

We drink like we're obsessed
and we rock like we're possessed
We're flying high on a burning plane
The worms are crawling in our brains, driving us insane
Track Name: Animal 57 (Just Like You)
Animal 57 (Just Like You)

I'm an animal 57 just like you
There's only one thing left for us to do
I'll hop the glass to your saline tank and rub up next to you
We'll make an animal 58 or maybe two

For most of us the world's a bloody mess
You could ride the tide feeling rightfully depressed I guess
In your laboratory eyes I see the light
Come take my wing
We'll roll into the night

I'm an animal 57 just like you
There's only one thing left for us to do
I'll hop the glass to your saline tank and rub up next to you
We'll make an animal 58 or maybe two

Some live their lives pinned down by hands of fate
Some say that good things come to those who wait
I say that life won't give you any breaks
Our destiny's controlled by what we take

You're the kind of bird that gets me sharpening my shiv
You've got nothing left to lose and I've got everything to give
Together we will over come this slaughterhouse we're in
With a resolution forged in hell and the stiffest upper lip

They say that good things come to those who wait
The robotic arms of doom are coming near
Make no mistake
Our destiny's controled by what we take
Tonight we're taking over here
We're making our escape

I'm an animal 57 just like you
There's only one thing left for us to do
I'll hop the glass to your saline tank and rub up next to you
We'll make an animal 58 or maybe two
I'm an animal just like you
and there's only one thing that we can do
I'll hop the glass and get next to you
We'll make and animal 58 or maybe two

Come on
Come on
Come take my wing
Track Name: A Shoreleave Slaughter
A Shore Leave Slaughter

Three months at sea and he's feeling hungry
He's looking for a bite
He's searching hard for some shore leave sundry
clutching a Benji tight
Around the corner she's waiting for him
A siren in the night
A silloette like a mud flap beauty
She'll do his demons right

Oh Desiree you've done it once again
You're a nasty lady killer to the end
With a beauty overwhelming your victims never see
your violent hand of death around the bend

She is a lady of ill intention
A walking switchblade knife
She puts he efforts the wrong direction
every single night
Down the street she meets her connection
Another wretched life
This woman loves like a diamond tiger
She's turning out the lights

Desiree you've done it once again
You're a nasty lady killer to the end
With a beauty overwhelming your victims never see
your violent hand of death around the bend

Monday she cleans up her mess from Sunday
A severed head and fingers on the ground
Tuesday she cleans out her car from Monday
Guts and brains and a bloody wedding gown
Wednesday morning finds her at the harbor
Drinking gin when the blood is all around
When Thursday comes she's busy in the forrest
Stashing mangled bodies underground

A knife, an axe and an invitation
She puts em all on ice
She is a lady of dark temptation
Your money and your life
Down the street she's a shore leave slaughter
A murderous fishwife
This woman loves like a diamond tiger
She's turning out the lights

Oh Desiree you've done it once again
You're a nasty lady killer to the end
With a beauty overwhelming your victims never see
your violent hand of death around the bend
Track Name: Amos
Amos

Proud little Amos was a born in this here land
and if trouble comes around little Amos gonna lend a hand
Righteous little Amos gonna keep his eyes on you
He'll be checkin in his book
Checkin all the things you do

But he's grinding down the spiral of his life
and don't he dread those lingerie and lipstick nights
You can't win a war when it's you you fight
All those swollen fists and the Limbaughists, well they don't make it right

Philosiphising Amos got some things to say about the law
Sons of bitches better run from his country and his god
Little ignoramus gets confused so he goes off
There ain't no riddle in the world, aint no problem that a fist can't solve

But he's goes grinding down the spiral of his life
Don't he dread those lingerie and lipstick nights
You can't win a war when it's you you fight
All those swollen fists and the Limbaughists, well they don't make it right

The end of each night finds him on his knees
Bloody knuckles turn the dial on his TV
As his sense of validation starts to dull
an evangelist to purify his soul

Amos liberator gonna hoist ol' Dixie back
Got a stack of sons of bitches rag and bone up in his shack
Little ignoramus gets confused so he goes off!
There ain't no riddle in the world, aint no problem that a fist can't solve
Track Name: Wolf Pack Must Ride
Wolf Pack Must Ride

Out on the highway
With baited breath we hunt and we dine
We are a rolling apocaplypse
headed south on 99
Our teeth gleem in the starlight
Lights ripped out in the dark
We drive in a frenzy of carnage
but our bite is much worse than our bark

Gunning down the asphalt
Bloody handlebars in hand
In garlands of bloody ears and toes
we terrorize the land
Our pistons burn with hellfire
We ravage the wrong and the right
We are the scourge of all mankind
The reaper would run from our sight

When the light of the full moon retruns the wolf pack must ride
Our chrome horses charge down the highyway all covered in hide
If you're caught on the road that night leave your engines and run
We'll feast on your flesh and your bones and lick up your blood

We retire at the daybreak
When they awake to the morning in shock
With the taste of human flesh on their breath
they hide once again in the flock

When the light of the full moon retruns the wolf pack must ride
Our chrome horses charge down the highyway all covered in hide
If you're caught on the road that night leave your engines and run
We'll feast on your flesh and your bones and lick up your blood
Track Name: The Curse
The Curse

In the darkest corners of the land
trampled down by modern man
the remains of civilization you will find
A society once prospered there
Utopians through trial and error
For twenty thousand years their people thrived

Do you wonder who's exacting their revenge?
Burn the heretics before they can

If you believe in witches you must believe in curses
Our never ending quarrel's just a plan
When the oracle's in stitches and the rot's upon your riches
When the mighty fall you'll finally understand

Guns and bombs are everywhere
Apocalypse is in the air
Intolerence runs deep and all around
The main offenders want to die
There's just one way to pacify
Burn the bastard churches to the ground

Do you wonder what propels us toward the end?
Excavate the thoughts of ancient man

If you believe in witches you must believe in curses
Our never ending quarrel's just a plan
When the oracle's in stitches and the rot's upon your riches
When the mighty fall you'll finally understand

The curse is never ending
Track Name: Snake Oil
Snake Oil

Twisting and crawling
All around and in the cities
There's a Psychotropic snake
of mammoth size
A pastel abomination
ten billion pills and growing
With a sleeper hold it wraps
around our lives
And it's coils are so pretty
and it's promises so sweet
We lay down with blind acceptance
to be swallowed by the beast

Devouring ambition
all drive and inspiration
Noncompliant children are
the first prescribed
To be shoveled down into the troff
with their parents close behind
by disease mongering Psychiatrists
with portfolio in mind
And the serpent has it's masters
Pfizer Glaxo, Smith and Kline
While their creations snub the flames of youth
they grow fat around the fires

Well it's all right to feel extreme
Don't waste your life on a Prozac dream

This is your time Rise up and take control
Palm the Riddeline and the lies once told
And you mothers there, your future is not sold
You had a passion once and a wild heart of gold

Remember all those days when you felt young
The point of life is not to die, it's having fun

This is the time Rise up and take control
Palm the Risperdal and let the children go!
And you fathers there with families caked in mold
Your enemy's not them it's pharmaceutical

Remember all those days when you felt young
The point of life is not to die, it's having fun

Are you drifting in a city all alone?
Are you sitting there as stagnant as a stone?
Are you counting days with pills and watching clocks?
It's time to kick em out
Get off the couch and rock!
Rock!
Rock!
Rock!
Track Name: Terminally Bored
Terminally Bored

I've been searching everywhere
I've been searching for some fun
I've been seaching on the internet
I've been search for a gun
It's an age of desperation
When there's nothing left to do
Our mythology's been proven wrong
It's reality and you

I've been searching in the ally's
of the San Francisco slums
I've been reveling with derelicts
conferring with the bums
I've drank so much god damn whiskey
my guts have seen the light
But the fire keeps me coming back
I'm still searching in the night

I'll keep searching
Searching
I'll keep searching
I'll keep searching hi and lo
I'll keep searching
Searching
I'll keep searching
Till there's nowhere left to go

Jenny Jones is looking too
She's searching in the dark
In a man with poison in his veins
she's searching for a heart
She's got horrible wounds under her sleeves
Her lips are busted wide
But she'll keep on digging in that hole
until there's nothing left inside

She's been searching
Searching
She's been searching
She's been searching hi and lo
She's been searching
Searching
She's been searching
But there's nowhere left to go

We've been searching
Searching
We've been searching
We've been searching for the sound
We've been searching
Searching
We've been searching
But there's nothing left around

In a city in the desert
a man blew up a church
His revery was criticized
It left him in the lurch
He's just pushing around the boundaries
What's yours is mine is yours
It's mindless entertainment
for the terminally bored

He's searching
