2. Bulldozer

Into the battles, making cages rattle
There's a pain that's inside us and we're letting it out
Charge right in, we dare to fail
No one is giving in, always we live to win
A hunger turns and burns inside of all of us
And it will not be denied

Walking a path untravelled to reach higher levels
Challenging, always going against the grain
Blood for blood - that is the rule
And we will make th rules, never be fortune's fool
There's right and wrong in almost everything we do
For us we do what is right

Bulldozer feeds upon the weaker as they fall
Bulldozer crashes all

Somebody told me I should do what they told me
But there's a hole in that plan and I'm tearing it down
Trust our guts, follow our hearts
No one can break these nuts, these lips ain't kissing butts
The path of most resistance tests all of our strength
This strength will not be denied

Bulldozer feeds upon the weaker as they fall
Bulldozer crashes all
Bulldozer feeds upon the weaker as they fall
Bulldozer crashes all

Walking on paths untravelled
Challenging one and all
Deeper into the battles
Alone and standing tall
The more evolving changes
The more we stay the same
Full steam against the odds
Go headfirst against the grain

Full steam we go against the odds
Headfirst we go against the grain

Bulldozer goes against the odds
Bulldozer goes against the grain

Against the odds, against the grain
We go against the odds, against the grain

This is the bulldozer
This is the bulldozer




3. White-Knuckle Blackout!

Veins are a racetrack for fuel that I need
Life on the edge is the bread which I feed
Standing alone, open for all to see
My tunnel vision for life, it drives me

Focus in closer
Releasing the fear

White-knuckle blackout, adrenaline rush
Wide-eyed and red-faced, my skin hot and flushed
The hair stands up down the backside of my neck
Bloodís beginning to boil the beads of sweat

Fear has its place in the scars that I bear
Deep in the mind, behind everything shared
Fixate my sickness as long as thereís air
Headstrong Iíll forcibly change what was there

By focusing closer
Releasing my fear

White-knuckle blackout, adrenaline rush
Wide-eyed and red-faced, my skin hot and flushed
The hair stands up down the backside of my neck
The bloodís beginning to boil
These beads of sweat Iíll dry, out of my eyes
And blacken everything except the goal out

Adrenaline is my fuel when Iíve an obstacle to climb
Adrenaline is the lubrication, focusing my mind
Adrenaline is telling me when someoneís thinking theyíre too cool
To raise my middle fingers up and say ďfuck youĒ

Adrenaline is fueling my mind to focus my climb
Reaction evoked at the challenge provoked out of you
Adrenaline is fire to fuel
You wanna fire my fuel?
Iíll fire back a fuck you!




4. Crashing Around You

I am your nightmares, true scares
That dream when you canít stop from falling
Canít fight, canít run
Canít stop the person youíve become

I am your heartbreaks, mistakes
That place inside you hate
I am that shadow following every move, reminding you
That itís never good enough, never good enough
Even though youíll try and try
Iím gonna call your bluff
Because I am the thing bringing the feelings whenÖ

Your world comes crashing around you
Smashes down around you
When will you see that you cannot hide from me?

When you feel darkness, hopeless
Canít cope with all the stress
Iíll make you hate life, bring strife
Remember failures hardened stare
And itís never gonna change, never gonna change
Always theyíll be judging you
Compared to who and who
You trust in me but I only live to see

Your world comes crashing around you
Smashes down around you
When will you see that you cannot hide from me?

When I come for you
When I see through you
When I eat through you
When I destroy you

Youíll think youíre betrayed, astray
Iíll leave you ripped and torn so bad you
Canít trust, canít love
Canít understand why lifeís so fucked
Iím deep inside your mind
In constant remind
If you leave your thoughts to me, believe
Iíll make sure that I see

Your world comes crashing around you
Smashes down around you
When will you see that you cannot hide from me?

Iíll make your world come crashing around you
Smash down around you
Iíll let you see why you cannot hide from me
Because I am you




5. Kick You When You're Down

Love for my love, hate for my hate
Strength for my strength, and pain for my pain
Pride for my pride, match it inside
Trust that I find in you
But itís hard and itís brutal, itís nasty and rude and
Itís dirty and mean when they treat you like yesterdayís
News
They want to keep us all downtown, frowned, underground
But no one is keeping me down
Fuck no

Iíll keep my head high

Cause they will always kick you when youíre down

Life for my life, soul for my soul
Truth for my truth and heart for my heart
Drive for my drive, match it inside
Fight for this fight and donít you ever never
Give up, give up Ė you gotta play like a master of chess
Itís a long road and itís a mental endurance stress test
Sometimes you fight and you win, sometimes you fight and
You lose
Itís the fighter in you
Not to lose

So keep your head high

Cause they will always kick you when youíre down

You have to trust in yourself
You must believe in yourself
You have to follow your heart
You overcome, improve, endure

Love for my love, hate for my hate
Strength for my strength and pain for my pain
Pride for my pride, match it inside
Keep up the drive and fight this fight
Because some shit ainít right
Donít lose our sight
Get our heads right
Shine our star too bright
Nothing in life is for sure
Itís just a gamble
So play it for all that itís worth

And donít forget to keep our heads high

Cause they will always kick you when youíre down
They will always kick you when youíre down
And donít you let their kicking get you down

You have to trust in yourself
You must believe in yourself
You have to follow your heart
You overcome, improve, endure




6. Only The Names

Welcome in my friend
Out of the cold where itís warm
Please step in
Whatís your name my friend
My nameís the same
What a strange coincidence
Glad youíve come to this place
Whatís the pleasure you chase
Oh, you like playing with speed
Well I have all the answers you need

I can take you
High and make you
Invincible
Iíll never leave you

Welcome in my friend
Try some of this
What youíll feel is amazing
Tap a tiny blast
In a crease of foil
Place this flame beneath it
White smoke you will inhale
A speed rush you will exhale
The goose bumps prickle your skin
Just enough to dig the hooks in

I can take you
High and make you
Invincible
But now youíre hollow

Youíre crawling on the floor
But youíll be back for moreÖyeah

Hello there my friend
Back for the sweet poison so soon again
But this lie must end
I must collect for those pleasures gave
When I first told you my name
I told you ours were the same
And thatís not really a lie
My real name is your addiction

I will bring you
Down and break you
Burn right through you
Wonít regret you




7. All In Your Head

You tell me, Iíve been walking on a railing
Been excelling at failing
That I think wrong, I donít belong
I donít fit, I donít give a shit
Take my guitar and microphone, pour out my fuckiní soul
Insecurity, Iíll strip it down to the bone Ė fuck it
I ainít stranger, just strange
Iíll be fine so leave me alone

You canít see the things that make
Your happiness go away, well I can

Itís all in your head
Itís in your head
Sad but itís true
Itís inside you
Keep wallowing in your misery
Itís all in your head

I know that Iím a weirdo and Iím messed up
And the lord knows that Iíve fucked up
But I donít need you to point out
Every mistake that I make
Iím sick of all your negatives, something has gotta give
Got me thinking you need to stop overthinking
Brink of losing my mind and going blind
Iíll be fine, leave me alone

You canít see the things that make
Your happiness go away, well I can

Itís all in your head
Itís in your head
Sad but itís true
Itís inside you
Keep wallowing in your misery
Itís all in your head

Why canít you see itís you
Itís just inside of you

You canít see the things that make
Your happiness go away, well I can
Honestly youíre driving me insane, again

Because Itís all in your head
Itís in your head
Sad but itís true
Itís inside you
Someday youíll see why youíre unhappy
Someday youíll see that itís not me
Itís all in your head

Itís just inside of you




8. American High

I was that kid sittiní over in the corner,
Smelling with a shit-eating grin
And I was that kid smiliní in the back of class
ĎCause Iím fryiní on mescaline
I was that kid drinkiní 40ís on the bleachers
Getting drunk after school
Gettingí home too late, falliní on my face,
Way too drunk to skate
And actiní a fool

I was that kid never doing good at
Nothing except for maybe at P.E.
And I was that kid getting bullied by the
Filipinos rollin with abt
Me and my friends reading
The satanic bible thinking we should start a band
Cutting class to jam, cutting class to jam
In my dadís garage we learned to

Act a fool Ė donít need to be cool
Pissed of too and breaking the rules
Mama told me stay in school
Donít rock Ďn roll
But this is my american high

I was that kid that was crank-calling
Your girlfriend, couldnít get a goddamn date
And I was that kid that was
Getting hella busted for pissiní on the bart train
I fuckiní hated school except for hanging out with my
Friends, the outcast that was
Startiní up a band
Fremont was the town, California-bound,
Bay area sound, taught me to

Act a fool Ė donít need to be cool
Pissed of too and breaking the rules
Mama told me stay in school
Donít rock Ďn roll
But this is my american high

Iím that kid you tried to punk in English class
Now Iím in a band and youíre kissing myÖ

Asteroids beat out homework
Slayer beat out Zeppelin
Not the sharpest noggin
Thatís why Iím in this band

And what you got against me, I donít need a new job
What you got against me, Iíll get by on my own
Telliní me Iím never getting by from my songs
I love it when youíre proven wrong

Act a fool Ė donít need to be cool
Pissed of too and breaking the rules
Mama told me stay in school
Donít rock Ďn roll
But this is my american high

Act a fool Ė donít need to be cool
Break the rules
Cause this is my american high




9. Brown Acid




10. Nausea

One more time youíve gotten into my head
Iíve let your words get into me
Every time I try to talk, you never listen
You got the answers, I donít know a thing
But you ask me what these lights are in my eyes

Theyíre a freight train ahead
And theyíre straight coming your way
Youíve tied yourself down to the tracks
Now you want help from me
To cut you free
If it was me
My hour of need
Youíd leave me there to bleed

Iím fucking sick of you
And all that shit youíre pulling
Your fuckiní attitude
Had better go on

You cheat and you lie
And you stole and denied
And you turned on your friends
When you burned all those bridges

This time you wonít be getting under my skin
What you had Iíve taken away
Tell me what youíre gonna do, it doesnít matter
Youíre always talking, it donít mean a thing
So ask me what these lights are in my eyes

Theyíre a freight train ahead
And theyíre straight coming your way
Youíve tied yourself down to the tracks
Now you want help from me
To cut you free
If it was me
My hour of need
Youíd leave me there to bleed

Iím fucking sick of you
And all that shit youíre pulling
Your fuckiní attitude
Had better go on

You cheat and you lie
And you stole and denied
And you turned on your friends
When you burned all those bridges

Well you sat there and cried
As these words came to glide
Through your delicate skin
Leaving blood on these pages
So how does it feel
To be at one with the fate I seal

Thereís a freight train ahead
And itís straight coming your way
Youíve tied yourself down to the tracks
Now you want help from me
To cut you free
But donít ask me
What Iím cutting
Is you out of my fuckiní life

Cause Iím fucking sick of you
And all that shit youíre pulling
Plus your fuckiní attitude
Has better go on

You cheat and you lie
And you stole and denied
And you turned on your friends
When you burned all those bridges




11. Blank Generation

They say we been
Going down and going down
Been traveling on the road to nowhere
Going down, round and round
Trying to get to the place where we started

When I was just a boy
At four years old thought the world was joy
As a kid Iíd play, just create the day
As I saw it my way

But time blows by

And strips us to the bone
Poisoned winds of woe
Teach us that weíre
Alone in this world
We learned to see all the corruption and greed
All its hate, all its pain, so
A toast to the end of our innocence
A toast to our blank generation

They say we been
Going down, been going down
Been travelling on the road to nowhere
Going down, round and round
Trying to get to the place where we started

When I was seventeen
Realizing the world wasnít what she seemed
Underneath the night San Francisco sky
I would see, too clearly

But time blows by

And strips us to the bone
Poisoned winds of woe
Teach us that weíre
Alone in this world
We learned to see all the corruption and greed
All its hate, all its pain, so
A toast to the end of our innocence
A toast to our blank generation

So hereís to our collagen lips and saline tits
To our growth hormones and antibiotics
To the Hollywood world we made out of Barbie doll hearts
After we melted them down so we could make our new start
Hereís to a generation scared and always wondering why
Instead of playing doctor, we play shoot each other and die
Instead of ring around the rosie, we play hide from mommy
Cause mommyís been drinking again and we donít want to get beat
Even with all our tattoos, and all our cheap thrills
Thereís still a hole inside of us that may not ever get filled
So we give back a little bit of what the worldís given us
Giving back a bit of never giving a fuck

Hereís to the justice never dealt, to innocent, proven guilty
Hereís to bad cops turning cheeks when real cops are on the street
Hereís to the rat-tat-n-tat of gun shots, and your life is shattered
Hereís to ďgimme me your cash or your brains is gettiní splatteredĒ
Hereís to mad cow disease and all that yummy msg
Hereís to Mickey dís serving all those mutant chick-a-dees
This is a toast to celebrate the end of our innocence
This is a toast to celebrate howÖ
Weíve become desensitized
If life is to grow
Some life must die

We learned to take all the corruption and greed
All its hate, all its pain, so
A toast to the end of our innocence
Our generation
We now embrace all the corruption
And greed, all its hate, all its pain, so
A toast to the end of our innocence
Our blank generation




12. Trephination

I used to want to take a drill to my head
Let the pain out of the hole
I used to want to cut the veins in my neck
Cool the blood boiling my soul
When I wondered, why my daily headaches thundered
Tried to buffer, pushing down the pain I suffered
Mutilated, feeling so humiliated
Cannot wash the dirt off underneath my skin

There was a part of me left far behind
When at the age of five years old
I had my innocence taken from me
Emptiness would fill the hole
Now a second grader, thinking why I donít feel better
Why Iím filthy, why the hell I feel so guilty
When drawing stick men of pornographic men and women
Thinking all the time thereís something wrong with me

Everyday for three years from dawn Ďtil dusk a migraine
Would take me and break me
And itíd cripple me so much that
In dreams, itíd seem, with a hole in my temple
That I could probably make my headaches finally go away

Trephination
Trephination
The enemy inside of me
Wonít let me free
Wants me to bleed

And after three years now my headaches wear off
For reasons not quite to me known
The acupuncture needles sticking my skin
Pushed them down as far as theyíd go
But now Iím older and now inside my anger smolders
From depression, to fighting taking out my vengeance
Consequences, now Iíd question during sex ifÖ
Is this how it feels or am I faking it?

No longer the child that you left there at the bart tracks
Iím now at 17, left in an empty blackness
On drugs, with thugs, and thinking ďgoddamnĒ
Iím ending up in a failure, in the gutter passed out

Trephination
Trephination
This enemy inside of me
Wonít let me free
Wants me to bleed

Now Iím older and in this man an anger smolders
Now Iím thinking a hole in you is what Iím seeing
Your depression, is the dent I kick in you in vengeance
Consequences are the pain Iíd give to you

I know that Iím dreaming, but in this dream I go in
Go through it, and end it
And though Iíd never do it
Iím killing you, hand on the trigger Ė pull it
Your final thoughtíll be a bullet in your fuckiní head

Trephination
Trephination
This enemy inside of me
Iím now killing
To make me free




13. Deafening Silence

She looked right into my eyes and said to me
The hurt that you try to hide is killing me
You drink a thousand lies, to freeze the past in time

Iíve tried to fill this silence up
But now itís back again

See the pain in my eyes
See the scars deep inside
My god, Iím down in this hole again
With the laughter I smile
With the tears that I cry
Keep going down this road called life

She says that Iím insecure, I guess sheís right
Cause just when I think Iím sure, alone at night
The agonies come back, this pain wonít let me be

I tried to fill the silence up
But now itís back again

See the pain in my eyes
See the scars deep inside
My god, Iím down in this hole again
With the laughter I smile
With the tears that I cry
Keep going down this road called life
Donít need your sympathy
I just want for this silence to stop killing me

Itís deafening
Itís deafening
This silence inside me

I try to fill this silence up
But now itís back again
Itís empty like a suicide
This pain inside

See the pain in my eyes
See the scars deep inside
My god, Iím down in this hole again
With the laughter I smile
With the tears that I cry
Keep going down this road called life
Donít need your sympathy
I just want for this silence to stop killing me




14. Supercharger

Electricity is pulsing
Though our veins a charge is racing
A chain reaction through the four of us,
To you, will make
The transformers begin converting into overdrive

Power surge now exploding through
Energy, filling the ominous void within you
No need to live your life in the gap
Got what you need right here on lightning tap, so

Charge me, charge you
Charge us, charge through
Amplify, terrify
Supercharger electrifies

Getting under skin, weíre like a rash
Spreading over your body
We are the itch you scratch
That doesnít seem to go away
Protons, neutrons, electrons
Synchronizing into one

In sheer power all will pale
Heaviness off the Richter scale
Forever crushing the competition in their tracks
100,000 volts we blast, so

Charge me, charge you
Charge us, charge through
Amplify, terrify
Supercharger electrifies

Your Ė little sticks of dynamite
Weíre Ė the fuse and weíre the light

Electricity is pulsing
Through our veins a charge is racing
A chain reaction from the four of us,
To you, has made
It crystal clear weíll win this war
DestinyÖvictory

Braveheart-mindset, full attack
Kamikaze, never look back
In this war, a victory is if you feel this too
You feed off us, and we feed off you, so

Charge me, charge you
Charge us, charge through
Amplify, terrify
Supercharger electrifies

Charge me, charge you
Charge us, charge through
Supercharger
Supercharger
Supercharger

15. Hole In The Sky * (Black Sabbath cover)

Iím looking through a hole in the sky
Iím seeing nowhere through the eyes of a lie
Iím getting closer to the end of the line
Iím living easy where the sun doesnít shine

Iím living in a room without any view
Iím living free because the rentís never due
The synonyms of all the things that Iíve said
Are just the riddles that are built in my head

Hole in the sky, take me to heaven
Window in time, through it I fly

Iíve seen the stars disappear in the sun
The shootingís easy if youíve got the right gun
And even though Iím sitting waiting for mars
I donít believe thereís any future in cars

Hole in the sky, take me to heaven
Window in time, through it I fly
Yeah

Iíve watched the dogs of war enjoying their feast
Iíve seen the western world go down in the east
The food of love became the greed of our time
But now Iím living on the profits of pride




16. Ten Fold *

Check check check check!
Ten fold, Ten fold, We grow ten fold, Ten fold, Ten fold!
We got these so-called friends,
Claiming way too hard to have all that.
When it comes down to it,
It's them who's talking the most.
They got a problem with us,
Cause we tell it how it is.
Well listen up, muthafucker's we're telling you how it is.
If you're a friend, then say good things behind
all of our backs.
I hear too many tall tales,
Gettin' told like they're all fact,
But I hear way too much info,
On half the shit that ain't even close,
Whispers
Flyin' around cause everybody's tryin' to boast.

Rumors and drama
Are all that gets told
While we just grow
Ten fold. Ten fold.
We grow ten fold.
Ten fold. Ten fold!

Oh, but you'll come to me now,
Like I ain't hearin' all your squakin'
It's your friends been tellin' me
All that shit you keep talkin'.
You won't get nadda from me,
Not a crumb,
Not a dime,
Not a ticket,
Not a pass
It's the end of your free ride...
You thought The Burning Red sucked?
Fuck you, and your bitch!
I spilled my goddamn guts,
This shit's as real as it's gonna get.
Cutting you out of my life,
So go on sing me a choir,
I wouldn't piss in your ass if your shit was on fire!

Rumors and drama
Are all that gets told
While we just grow
Ten fold. Ten fold.
We grow ten fold.
Ten fold. Ten fold!

Always the whispers are flyin' around,
And keep pouring from that hole,
That you call a mouth.
But we follow our instincts,
Don't care what gets thrown.
Ignoring the rumors,
While our powers grow...

Ten fold, Ten fold, We grow ten fold, Ten fold
We grow ten fold, Ten fold, We grow ten fold, Ten fold! Grow tenfold.

Ten fold, Ten fold, We grow ten fold, Ten fold
We're Ten Fold!




17. The Blood, The Sweat, The Tears (live) *

Yes I've walked the path that's righteous
Many men have walked before
Yeah this pain cell, the broken shell
Scraped, shackled onte the floor
So welcome to the world that I lived in
Puking out violence hate
My world entered a false recluse
Sickening from disease
But then I see
This thing in me
Make me want it more than you
But I deny your flesh
Cause pain's my wish
Racing on self destruct

So hold on to the end...

It's all about the blood, the sweat, the tears
A tribute to the strength built through the years

Oh yes I've walked the path that
Gives me confidence strong and pure
Now I realized that freedom rises
From confronting the source
I built these walls around me
And I can't break them all away
And I focus on the strength I call
Insufferable and insane

So hold on to the end...

It's all about the blood, the sweat, the tears
A tribute to the strength built through the years
A tribute to soul...

Take this
Focus
Madness
To take...

...hold...on...on...on...

Hold on.. falling.. please let go..
Hold on.. I'm falling... I'm falling down again...

It's all about the blood, the sweat, the tears
A tribute to the strength built through the years

A tribute cos time will set 'em off
Cos time will set 'em off




18. Desire To Fire (live) *

Won't you fuck this pressure, c'mon, yeah

We turn desire to fire electric spark to the wire
Highred the stakes when we brought this monster
Life prevail by daring to fail others content just to sail
Hail the future we bring

We bring chaos to blocks like riots to watts blow up spots,
Taking the crown off the top notch
Create the pace that you all will follow
Sporadic flow buckles up like a calico
We d-o smoke sensmilla vodka and c-o-k-e is the real deal
You flubber, never had to suffer
Life's gettin harder and it's only getting rougher
Save some for me can't stop what we're going to be

Walk with me and take this seed
A fire for you so dare to fail will you

When my pen hits pad it results in catastrophe
Words and verbscome to form a disaster
If you want it, you got it never hit I spot it
Now come and watch me rise

All the tools, that blew more money than latrell
You tell, I don't know you think I know you too well you feel
And stumbled laughin as you tumbled
I guess you forgot about the power we rock
Coz "all hail the" Machine Head battery
The good, the bad, the ugly
Damaging your battery yeah you been fucked stuck in a rut
Your life has been sucked your tail has been tucked

Save some for me can't stop what we're going to be
Just watch as I demonstrate the reason we dominate

Walk with me and take this seed
A fire for you so dare to fail will you

If we stand alone and believe it all
And you tell me it's all I believe in
Yes we stand alone and believe it all
If you tell me it's all we believe in
Because we'll chew and spit you out
And pray upon the weaker
Take what we want

Walk with me and take this seed
A fire for you so dare to fail will you
