THE HERETIC
(Lawless, Holmes)

These fits of depression are torturing me
The lives that I seen won't breathe again
A sad child of madness, they'll never be free
Born again to die, the agonies begin
And soldiers keep coming - like warriors they die
But gangland's alive when mothers cry
'Cause hate's blind addictions, a killing machine
And it burns on the fuel of shattered lives
Lost child, lost child

The seeds of all evil are sown in their minds
And harvest the sad fields of woe
Cause dead boys are martyrs
That live on forever
But now it's too late for their souls
Standing on sanities too fragile edge
And worship the "Lord Of The Flies"
And wade through the slaughter
You've made of thy brother
And drown in his blood then when he dies

You see in their eyes
They're the lost child
See in their eyes
You see in their eyes
They're the lost child
See in their eyes

Don't turn out the lights
'Cause there's demons in the night
And they prey on the fears in us all
They hide inside and wait
And they shun the light of day
The screams in their dreams fill us all

Children of the night
Such a sad tune they rhyme
The bloody boys that sing a wicked song
And for all of them they're just memories in the wind

Rise and see
It's the dawn of insanity
Keeper of the gates of fire
And the Heretic has said
You don't have to be afraid
'Till I - till I come to get ya
And child in time
On the swords edge you ride
And cast a spell of Heresy
And die in vain
Like a wild dog in chains
And no one can save
Or set you free

 

THE REAL ME
(Pete Townshend)
Originally performed by The Who

I went back to the doctor to get another shrink
I sit and tell him about my weekend, but
He never can change what he thinks
Can you see the real me, doctor, doctor
Can you see the real me, doctor, ooh doctor

I went back to my mother, I said I'm crazy Ma, help me
She said "I know how it feels son, cause it runs in the family"
C'mon tell me
Can you see the real me, mother, mother
Can you see the real me, mother, woah mother

Can you see, can you see, can you see the real me
Can you see, can you see the real me
The real me, the real me, the real me

The cracks between the pavement stones
Like rivers of flowing rain
Strange people who know me
From behind every window pane
The girl I used to love lives in this yellow house
Yesterday she passed me by, she don't want to know me now

Can you see the real me, can ya, can ya
Can you see the real me, woah yea

I ended up with the preacher, full of lies and hate
I seemed to scare him a little, ha ha
So he showed me to the golden gate
Whoa can you see the real me preacher, preacher
Can you see the real me woah yea
Can you see, can you see, can you see, woah yeah
Can you see the real me, doctor, doctor
Can you see the real me, mama
Can you see the real me me me me

 

THE HEADLESS CHILDREN
(Lawless)

Father come save us from this madness we're under
God of creation are we blind?
Cause some here are slaves that worship guns that spit thunder
The children that you've made have lost their minds

This monster that we call the earth is bleeding
Cause the children have been left alone too long
This thing that we've made is fat and feeds on the hate
Of the millions that it's taught to sing the song

The Headless Children
The screams that fill the night, fill the night, fill the night, fill the night
The Headless Children
The madness steals the light, steals the light, steals the light, steals the light

Timebombs in the hands of all the wicked war babies
Light the fuse of temptation and we all burn
Four horsemen sit high up in the saddle
And waiting and ride the bloody trail of no return

Sleeping in the arms of a nightmare
And wake to find we've been away too long
This Frankenstein of flesh stitched together back from death
And preying on the souls of everyone

The Headless Children
The screams that fill the night, fill the night, fill the night, fill the night
The Headless Children
The madness steals the light, steals the light, steals the light, steals the light

 

THUNDERHEAD
(Lawless, Holmes)

Oh Thunderhead, you're a man with a problem
Ah old habits too hard to break
And soon you'll be dead from that poison that you're on
Oh the venom that's worse than the snakes

And I say, hey hey hey, oh no, hey hey hey
Oh no, hey hey hey: white thunder
Needles and pins a dead man you're in
So deep you'll never climb out
Hey hey hey, oh no, hey hey hey
Oh no, hey hey hey: white thunder
A gun to your dead, the trigger you're dead
It's quicker and their ain't no doubt

Oh thunderhead, tie it off, you're in heaven
Oh you'll drown in the Heroin flood
And die in your bed and sweat in detox
You're leaving this world
Oh your epitaph's written in blood

And I said hey hey hey, oh no, hey hey hey
Oh no, hey hey hey: white thunder
Needles and pins a dead man you're in
So deep you'll never climb out
Hey hey hey, oh no, hey hey hey
Oh no, hey hey hey: white thunder
A gun to your dead, the trigger you're dead
It's quicker and their ain't no doubt

Killer- ya sceam and ya bleed
Thriller- you spread your disease
Watch out, watch out

Thunder head - yes I'm your master
Will you steal for me - yes
Will you ruin yourself and give everything unto me- yes
Will you lie, cheat, deceive, dishonor everything
And even kill thy brother for me - yes, yes
Will you worship only me as your true master - yes
Thunderhead, will you die for me - yes master

Hey hey hey, oh no, hey hey hey
Oh no, hey hey hey: white thunder
Needles and pins a dead man you're in
So deep you'll never climb out
Hey hey hey, oh no, hey hey hey
Oh no, hey hey hey: white thunder
A gun to your dead, the trigger you're dead
It's quicker and their ain't no doubt

 

MEAN MAN
(Lawless)

A tatooed madman, I am hell on wheels
Born a wicked child left alone in the fields
My father was the wind, my mother was fire
Raised by the wolves and I grew up wild
A kamakazi man, a hollering 'Banzai'
Never crash and burn, never gonna die
Cannibal it's me, you squeal and shout
I chew you up and spit you out

Storms a c-c-coming and it's gonna be me
Here comes Trouble with a capital "T"

'Cause I'm a mean mother fucking man,
I gotta scream, that's what I am
All the way, all the way
'Cause I'm a mean mother fucking man,
Riding the wind and know I'll be damned
All they way, all the way, all the way

Chewbacca in the rye, the water of fire
A terror in the flesh, a killer for hire
California man I'm white line, "Homer"
The unruly one they call the "Blond Bomber"
Scooter gypsy, I'm a renegade
An orphan of the road, a live hand greande
Never gonna quit before my time
When the moon gets high then I'll be blind
Mad dog 20-20's king
I drink that stuff and start getting obscene

'Cause I'm a mean mother fucking man,
I gotta scream, that's what I am
All the way, all the way
'Cause I'm a mean mother fucking man,
Riding the wind and know I'll be damned

I'm a motorcycle man
Don't never give a damn
I lie when the truth serves better
The Marquis de Sade, I cheat and steal and rob
A heavy metal creature
All the way, all the way, all the way

'Cause I'm a mean mother fucking man,
I gotta scream, that's what I am
All the way, all the way
'Cause I'm a mean mother fucking man,
Riding the wind and know I'll be damned
All they way, all the way, all the way

 

THE NEUTRON BOMBER
(Lawless)

He came from the East, they called him a beast
This king of terror insane
Neutron Ronnie, the people would whisper his name
Dangerous and mad, a torch in his hand
Spread fire by the light of the moon
Ooh, pyrotechnical wizard of doom

Oh no, here comes Ronnie
Ah the boy with the flame
All his life has been burning inside
Oh no no, here comes Ronnie
Ah the bomber's insane
Ah till he dies it'll burn in his eyes

A phantom so cool, at midnight would rule
A molotov cocktail would rain
Babies screamin' and house would go up in flames
When next Ronnie goes nobody knows
But inside him's where Lucifer hides
Ooh, he's the boy with the bombs at his side

Ooh no, here comes Ronnie , Ah the boy with the flame
All his life has been burning inside
Oh no no, here comes Ronnie
Ah the boy with the flames
Ah his life has been burning inside
Oh no no here comes Ronnie
Ah the bomber's insane
As 'till he dies the burning in his eyes

 

MEPHISTO WALTZ
(Lawless)

Instrumental

 

FOREVER FREE
(Lawless)

I ride all alone and can't see
The road to nowhere anymore
And shadows whispers are calling me
To forbidden forests by the shore
And there she fell, deep in the night
One breath away from heaven's light
And she said - don't cry for me, I'm leaving you

The wind cries her name in the breeze
But I can't hold her anymore
Some fallen angel had come to me
And fell to heavy on my soul
And stole from me the love that I heard
Lords of time say never die
And said - don't cry for me, cause I'll be

Riding the wind forever free
High in the wind forever free
I'll ride the wind forever free
High in the wind forever free
Forever free

Forever in my hearts a fire, a fire burning
I wake up nights and hear her crying, crying my name

Riding the wind forever free
High in the wind forever free
I ride the wind forever free
High in the wind forever free
Forever free

 

MANEATER
(Lawless)

Turn loose the lightning metal hangs and set me free
Turn loose my crying metal hearts, 1200 cc's
Cold steel forever I'm gonna ride and burn the flame
That breathes the fire- breathes the fire
And can't be tamed

Thunder rolling down the highway
These wheels of fire eat you alive
Them outlaw riders going my way
A Harley child until I die

Run to the scorching desert sun, V twins will scream
Into the blackness of the night at twisting speed
High on the hawg I'm riding on engines explode
It feels like thunder, it's breathing fire, it rules the road

Milwaukee metal on the highway
These wheels of fire eat you alive
Them outlaw riders going my way
Only the strong here will survive

Maneater- born free I ride
Maneater- wings of freedom burn the line
For metal minds

Them bad boys riding on forever
When they die they ride in Harley heaven

 

REBEL IN THE F.D.G.
(Lawless)

I live my life like a shot in the wind
If tomorrow don't come I know
I stole my share of fun for me
Cause I'm too fast, too rad
I'm going wasted when I go
The cost of freedom's never free
It's the deep six, it's my fix
It's my best friend, cause it's my way or the highway
I'll tell you it's the living end

I'm a rebel in the FDG
And I say only God in heaven knows
I'm a bad child, come and love me
And I say, oh yeah

If you're fast you might last
Slow you gotta go
A wild one in the decadent zoo
Ooh, I lick up all my seven deadly sins
Cause I'm too hot, too cool
Oh I've been playing in the fire of fools
I might burn but I'll burn in the wind
It's the deep six, it's my fix
It's the big jam, cause it's my way or the highway
I'll tell you what I am

Oh I, I feel the heat and I, I touch the flesh and bone
And I feel the kiss of fire
Too fast to live, too fast to die
Mom and daddy say, "I'm dancing in the fire"

Sometimes I feel like an animal in a cage
I pace back and forth and look around
For something to sink my teeth into
But nobody knows what's going on inside me
