1. Free Country

Reality it is a lie
The briefest dream before I die
To comprehend the cosmic scheme
See the truth behind my dream

Look out for me
Let's trip on L.S.D.
Look out for me
D.S. look out for me

Rocky's gold, leb is red
Black goes right to my head
Mushroom tea, a toke of weed
Amphetamine is real good speed

Look out for me
Come have some mushroom tea
Look out for me
D.S. look out for me

Lines of speed on a mirror face
Sniff it up through a biro case
Heroin is for the hero
It's a killer, you gotta say no

Look out for me
Let's trip on L.S.D.
Look out for me
D.S. look out for me

Turn to drugs to free my mind
Just to see what I would find
Tabs are great, now ask the drummer
Smack my friend is just a bummer




2. Burning a Sinner

A cart rolled through the town
And people all around
Gathered for the burning of the witch
They grit their teeth in anger
They raise their arms in fear
The burning stake was ready for that bitch

Singing burn her
Burn her
Burn her to the ground
Singing burn her sins
Burn her pride
Burn her till she dies

They tie her to the stake
People shout abuse
They want to hear the sizzling of her flesh
She looks at them and curses
Each one of them in town
The execution flame put to the ground

Singing burn her. . .

You cannot see her body
Smoke is all around
All you hear is the sizzling of her flesh
Fire burns so quickly
Smoke begins to clear

Preacher man stood up, announced her dead

Singing burn her. . . x2




3. Witchfinder General

I'm coming to find you
I'm coming to get you
I'm coming to take you away
You witches are evil
You worship the devil
So listen to what I say
Come peacefully from out of your huts
Or I'll have you witches prey
I want destroy you
Must play and toy you
And watch you wither away

Who's coming to get you
I'm coming to take you away
Find you guilty witch woman
'Cos I am the Witchfinder General

The trial's begun and people come
From many towns around
I find them guilty just to please me
And feed them to a hound
I bite their brains and cut their veins
Strike them to the ground
Insult their bodies till they're dead
Let the soil be their surround

Who's coming to get you. . .

He picks us up, he knocks us down
He says he hates our slang
He plays with us like pawns in chess
Come on let's get a gang
If your girl is tight, he'll take a bite
Say witch with evil mange
So if you've hope, let's grab a rope
And watch that bastard hang

So you think you can beat me
Hang me completely
You should know better than that
I'll take your wenches
Tie them on benches
Feed them to a rat
So if you try me
Even deny me
I'll beat you, you're a pratt

So come on folks
Don't try provoke
'Cos to me you're a fragile gnat

'Cos I'm the Witchfinder General




4. Requiem for Youth

My life's been abused and my mind is confused
Best must have passed by
So now I must die!
Writing these words now, finding it hard
To tell you my problems you'll just disregard
Yeah!

See these words I write?!
Oh lend me your ears, just for toniiiiiiiight. Yeah!

Love it is something could never understand
Alcohol it seems is all I demand.

Deeper and deeper depression set in.
You don't understand now the way I have been. Yeah!

See these words I write
Oh lend me your ears, just for toniiiiiight. Yeah!

You say you'll pull through
You don't really care
To you I am scum
Just a flea in your hair

He pays you no money
The boss wants it all
Oh answer him back
Redundant you faaaaaaaaaaaaall, Yeah!

Redundant you fall!

Oh go on they say now through rough and grim
They don't understand the state I am in
I'm lonely and cold I've got scars on my wrist
I know if I die, I would not be missed. Yeah!

To these words I write
Oh lend me your ears just for tonight

Been on my own now, I stop day and night
When out on the street I get into a fight
Sorry for myself Yeah maybe it's true
I'm coked up in my room with nothing to do

*Yeah!* Now I'm unemployed

I'd blame it on them, but I cannot win
Holding the knife now to plunge in my chest
I ain't got the guts, maybe itís best!




5. Shadowed Images

Are we here or is this really the end?
Are you real or just a vision they send?
I see you now, but are you really a friend?
Oh When I switch off Is it really the end?

The bubble of life confuses me
I need to know just why
My thoughts are just a-busing me
Oh why, why do we live to die?

Could it be we're only here to amuse
Oh I wish I did know!
Their games I'd try and confuse
Do I think or is it they're in control?
What purpose have I?
I need to know my role

The bubble of life confuses me
I need to know just why
My thoughts are just a-busing me
Oh why? why do we live to die?

I'm trapped inside my head, with only my thoughts
I just keep on aging no-one ever consults
My curious mind, it never seems to rest
Maybe I'm programmed
Just put down in here for the test




6. Friends of Hell

Midnight approaches
When the circle is formed
Their faces are evil!
Their minds are deformed!

They preach to their demons
Sacrifice is prepared
She's placed in a circle
When the dagger is beared!

Iíve caught them all a-gathering
To commit a blood crime act of madness
Their evil posessed minds
Can kill with only gladness
To sacrifice a young one
To Satan on that day
And perish after death
The Satanistís on their path

Human corpses from the grave
Used in worships I am dismayed
Satan pleasures yeah deaths and treasures
Must be ready, not delayed.

The sacrifice is prepared
Her naked flesh was pure
They wrapped her in some red vines
No sight for good I am sure

They shout their words of evil
Brainwashed into their minds
The sacrificial dagger
'Tis placed in hands which bind

Devouring the human flesh!
just to spill his blood like rain
Satanists rage against mankind
Take away his brain!

*instrumental*

Theyíve sold their souls to Satan
Their witchcraft it is obscene!

To be a dedicated disciple
To Satan yeah this does mean!

*commence riff of awesomeness*

But I am here, They see me and they freeze!
I shout the words of sacred scrolls on my knees
A steaming stench, their flesh it runs like oil
I hear their master shouting from under the soil

Their friends of Hell!
Friends of Hell!

Their frieeeeeeeeeeends
of Hell!




7. Death Penalty

Life in prison, is it enough
For what they do
One day soon, so very close
It could be you
A life for a life, that's the way
The only way I say
The chair is best, also sweet
The power's all we pay

The power's all we pay
We'll end it all today
The power's all we pay

Thirty years is all they do
Less if they are good
All this time we pay their way
Goodies say we should
Then they're out, they're on the loose
To do it once again
Back in they go, the more we pay
We say they are insane

They say they are insane
Blown right out of their minds
Really gone insane

The people's vote it should be cast
The murderers would not last
Eject the filth from my lifestyle
Keep them just on file

To take a life it is a shame
They've only got themselves to blame
Death should be the penalty
Quick and cold and finally
Give them food and beds they say
The people they will pay
Treat them good and talk to them
Teach them how to pray
Does it work, of course not
We'll end it all today
As I said let's have a vote
Let them know our way

Let them know our way
We'll execute today
The power's all we'll pay

How many victims unlawfully killed upon the earth
Homicidal killers, can you tell me what they're worth
They never have a reason, never tell you why
We'll take their lives, save their souls, let them die




8. Last Chance

Would you step inside my time machine
Come see places you have never been
To Vortex Hill of eternal life
Or back in time, *Yeah!* to see the strife *Yeah!*

Where do we come from now?
Where do we go?
Just follow me now and I will show
You're the beginning *Yeah!* and the end
You think they're happy but you know they only pretend *Yeah!*

Now all you people you know they are perverse
Turn time round, now it's in a reverse!
Got no logic, got no respect
Their minds and brains, they don't seem to connect *Yeah!*




9. Invisible Hate

Economy it fills my mind
I don't know where to turn
The laws, the rights, the outta sights
You know they all should burn
People saying don't tell me
That's none of my concern
One day close, so very soon
You know they'll learn

Invisible hate inside me now
Invisible hate 'cos I am down
Invisible hate inside me now
Invisible hate I've gotta get out

Peace is what I need right now
So thing don't you start
Go away and leave my soul
And leave my broken heart
'Cos if you stay you'll provoke me
And I know I'll die
So go away now, go away now
High, high up into the sky

Invisible hate...


I still don't know if you'll leave me
I hope you will before you kill me
Here I am, I tried to fight you
Hope I can and not delight you
Invisible hate when there's no joy
Invisible hate I've got oh boy
Invisible hate inside my soul
Like in your head are girls that go

I've fought my hate now here comes joy
How I fought it I don't know oh boy
Some say God, some say faith
I say sex, drugs, rock and beer
My beer

I've fought....




10. Quietus

You're going nowhere
Whatch'you gonna do on the run?
I'd hate to be in your shoes now, you've got to run
He's gonna find you, heís gonna get you on the run
He's right behind you
Don't look round, he's got a gun

Servitude you escaped from
Now you've got to hide
His servitors are coming in from the other side
A quick disguise, you get away, just one more time
He keeps on coming, Oh you know he won't resign

You lie awake at night hard a-thinkiní
You must not sleep just keep your eyes a-blinkiní
Frightened he might come Oh when you're sleepin'
Listen in the bushes, Is that him creepin'?

Irrationally you walk the streets at night
Your mind is irrevokable by daylight
He has a plan to get you it's a treat
He's got you where he wants
You bit the bait

You lie awake at night hard a-thinkiní
You must not sleep just keep your eyes a-blinkiní
Frightened he might come Oh when you're sleepin'
Listen in the bushes Is that him creepin'?

A sudden move the bullet yes it hits you hard
He's impeccable you know he caught you off your guard
A sudden move, another shot Yeah you provoke
It seems to me
It was the death finishing stroke




11. No Stayer

I want a woman 'cos it's a Saturday night
I wanna make her feel alright
I'm going to lay her, do you know what I mean
I really wanna make her scream

No stayer on a Saturday night
No stayer 'cos I'm feeling alright tonight

Back at her place
She was in the mood
She sucked and licked my food
When it was running all over her face
She rolled over and then we screwed

No stayer. . .

Next morning do you know what she said
She said "Will you be my guy?"
I just got dressed and I walked away
I said "Now girl, I don't stay"

No stayer on a Saturday night
Never have been, never will be
No stayer 'cos it's Saturday night tonight




12. Love on Smack

You say your life's been wasted
You say there's nothing left
Youíve been so disillusioned
Living on your theft

You call up ask to meet me
Under our favourite tree
I say this must be real bad
For you to call on me

I get there and I find you under our favourite tree
I can smell the blossom, and hear the buzzing bee
I sit down right beside you and I look into your eyes
Feel a deep emotion as you look onto the skies

When she said

"I've lived a life of evil. Some people say I'm mad"
"I've been through prostitution. You can't count the men I've had."
"I've lived on what Iíve stolen, and hoped inside a lie."
"I beg you stay and hear me now, help me while I die."

*que solo of awesomeness*

I say "What are you talking of? Oh what is this you say?"
"Dying's not for you my love."
You say "It's what I pray!"

You say "I thought you'd understand first to make love to me."
"I still remember feeling your gland rubbing deep in me."
"Passionate feelings they arouse. Never ask me why."
"Please make love to me once more, here before I die."

She's dying, dying
The best way out

She's dying, dying
Please don't shout!

"Don't tell the world what I tell you here."
"Nor call a doctor while I die itís drawing near."

I kiss her once upon the cheek, her arms they embrace me
She whispers softly while carressing "Darling can't you see?"
"We both make love so passionate, our feelings they must show."
Our climaxes now they fulfill. Her eyes they close "Oh no!"

She's dying, dying
The best way out
She's dying, dying
Please don't shout

"Don't tell the world what I tell you here."
"Nor call a doctor while I die itís drawing near."


She's dying
She's dying
She's dying
She's dead!
