[Hmm-hm-hm-hm-hmm-m
Hm-hm-hm-hm-hm]

I've gotta see you moving fast, see you come my way
See the dreams, I hope they last, never fade away
Gotta see the lights above, make it loud tonight
Gotta set it all afire, set it all alight

See the flashing lights, hear the thunder roar
I am gonna set you all alight
Gotta make it man
I ain't got a choice
Gotta fill this hall tonight

Helpless (helpless)
Helpless (helpless)
Helpless (helpless)
Helpless (helpless)

I don't know what I'm gonna do, maybe not tonight
Gotta set you all afire, gotta treat you right
I can see the flashing lights, lit before your love
Gotta hear the thunder roar, coming from above

See the flashing lights, hear the thunder roar
I am gonna set you all alight
Gotta make it man, I ain't got a choice
Gotta fill this hall tonight

Helpless (helpless)
Helpless (helpless)
Helpless (helpless)
Helpless (helpless)
Huh!

I can see the stars, but I can't see what's going on
Every night alone I sing my song just for fun
Only time will tell if I'll make it myself someday
This stage is mine, music is my destiny

Cannot squeeze the life from me, yeah

I can see the stars, but I can't see what's going on
Every night alone I sing my song just for fun
Only time will tell if I'll make it myself someday
This stage is mine, music is my destiny

Cannot squeeze the life from me
Yeah-yeah-yeah

Hoh!

[See ya
Keep it going and keep it ringing out, let it ring out
Hey, doc
Okay, turn it off now]

Originally performed by Holocaust
You're drawn at the darkness,
and you will see,
just call my name and I'll be there.

You cannot touch me,
you would not dare,
I am the chill that's in the air.

So I try to get through to you,
in my own special way,
as the barriers crumble,
at the end of the day.

Dark rivers are flowing,
back into the past,
You are the fish for which I cast.

And what of the future,
what is to be,
as the rivers flow into the sea.

So I try to get through to you,
in my own special way,
as the barriers crumble,
at the end of the day.

Do not take for granted,
powers out there,
don't step into the demon's lair.

Time is an illusion,
rising from time,
steep is the mountain which we climb.

So I try to get through to you,
in my own special way,
as the barriers crumble,
at the end of the day.

[One, two, three, four]

Motives changing, day to day
The fire increases, masks decay
I look at the river, white foam floats down
The body's poisoned, gotta sit tight

The wait
The wait
The wait
The wait

After wakening, silence grows
The screams subside, distortion shows
Mutant thoughts, of bad mouthed news
It's just another birth, of distorted views

The wait
The wait
The wait
The wait

The wait
The wait
The wait
The wait

(Originally recorded by Budgie)

Look inside and you will see
The words are cutting deep inside my brain
Thunder burning, quickly burning
Knife of words is driving me insane
Insane, yeah

Raven black is on my track
He shows me how to neutralize the knife
Show to me in surgery
The art of fighting words to conquer life
Conquer life, yeah

[ooooh, ooooh, ooooh, ooooh]

Now the wicked lance of fear
Is driving from my heady mountain brain
Crash course in brain surgery
Has stopped the bloody knife of words again
Yeah, yeah, yeah

(Original: Misfits)

I got something to say, I killed your baby today and it
Doesn't matter much to me, as long as it's dead
I got something to say, I raped your mother today and it
Doesn't matter much to me, as long as she's spread
Ooh lovely dead, just waiting for your breath
Cold sweet death, one last caress
Ooh lovely dead, just waiting for your breath
Cold sweet death, one last caress
I got something to say, I killed your baby today and it
Doesn't matter much to me, as long as it's dead.
Ooh lovely dead, just waiting for your breath
Cold sweet death, one last caress
Last caress today, yo-o-o-oh, yooo-oh
Here in this place lies the key to your death
Touch it, see it
Here in this place is the means to your end
Touch it, feel it, green hell
You did your best as someone could
I bet you never knew you would
And did you run away from me
I bet you thought you really could
We're gonna burn in hell - Green hell
Like every hell but kind of green - Green hell, green hell
Try let me get back up there - Green hell, green hell
Feel it burning in your cereal - Green hell, green hell
Throw your ****in' friends inside - Green hell, green hell
Gotta ****in' pay and you must stay - Green hell
Cannot refill the torch of death - Green hell, green hell
Hell is reigning in your blood - Green hell, green hell
Gotta burn it all, green hell
You did your best as someone could
I bet you never knew you would
And did you run away from me
I bet you thought you really could
Here in this place lies the key to your death
Touch it, see it
Here in this place is your world that ended
Touch it, feel it, green hell
You did your best as someone could
I bet you never knew you would
And did you run away from me
I bet you thought you really could
You've come to this as someone told
I bet you never knew you would
Gonna bring green hell, green hell
