virus
there’s an evil virus that’s threatening mankind
not state of the art, a serious state of mind
the muggers, the backstabbers, the two faced elite
a menace to society, a social disease

rape of the mind is a social disorder
the cynics, the apathy one-upmanship order

watching beginnings of social decay
gloating or sneering at life’s disarray
eating away at your own self esteem
pouncing on every word that you might be saying

rape of the mind is a social disorder
the cynics, the apathy one-upmanship order

superficially smiling a shake of the hand
as soon as the back is turned treachery is planned

rape of the mind is a social disorder
the cynics, the apathy one-upmanship order

watching beginnings of social decay
gloating or sneering...at life’s disarray

when every good thing’s laid to waste
by all the jealousy and hate
by all the acid wit and rapier lies

and every time you think you’re safe
and when you go to turn away
you know they’re sharpening all their paper knives

all in your mind
all in your head
try to relate it

all in your mind
all in your head
try to escape it

without a conscience they destroy
and that’s a thing that they enjoy
they’re a sickness that’s in all our minds

they want to sink the ship and leave
the way they laugh at you and me
you know it happens all the time

all in your mind
all in your head
try to relate it

all in your mind
all in your head
try to escape it

the rats in the cellar you know who you are....
or do you?

watching beginnings of social decay....

sanctuary

taken from metal for muthas

out of the route came a warhorse of steel. 
i’ve never killed a woman before, but i know how it feels. 

i know you’d have gone insane if you saw what i saw. 
so now i’ve got to look for sanctuary from the law. 
so give me sanctuary from the law and i’ll be alright. 
just give me sanctuary from the law and love me tonight, tonight. 

i met up with a stranger last night to keep me alive. 
he spends all his money on gambling and guns to survive. 

i can laugh at the wind, i can howl at the rain. 
down in the canyon or out in the plain.

wrathchild

taken from metal for muthas

i was born into a scene of angriness and greed, and dominance and persecution.
my mother was a queen, my dad i've never seen, i was never meant to be.
and now i spend my time looking all around,
for a man that's nowhere to be found.
until i find him i'm never gonna stop searching,
i'm gonna find my man, gonna travel around.

'cos i'm a wrathchild, well i'm a wrathchild.
yeah i'm a wrathchild. i'm coming to get you, oh yeah.

say it doesn't matter ain't nothin' gonna alter the course of my destination.
i know i've got to find some serious piece of mind, or i know i'll go crazy.
but now i spend my time looking all around,
for a man that's nowhere to be found.
until i find him i'm never gonna stop searching,
i'm gonna find my man, gonna travel around.

'cos i'm a wrathchild, well i'm a wrathchild.
yeah i'm a wrathchild. i'm coming to get you, oh yeah.
