Rust in peace - live
Rust in peace - live
Holy war... the punishment due
Hangar 18
Take no prisonners
Five magics
Poison was the cure
Tornado of souls
Dawn patrol
Rust in peace... Polaris
Holy wars - reprise
Skin o' my teeth
In my darkest hour
Symphony of destruction
Peace sells
Holy war... the punishment due
Brother will kill brother 
Spilling blood across the land 
Killing for religion 
Something I don't understand 

Fools like me,who cross the sea 
And come to foreign lands 
Ask the sheep, for their beliefs 
Do you kill on God's command?

A country that's divided 
Surely will not stand 
My past erased, no more disgrace 
No foolish naive stand 

The end is near, it's crystal clear 
Part of the master plan 
Don't look now to Israel 
It might be your homelands 

Holy wars 

Upon my podium, as the 
Know it all scholar 
Down in my seat of judgement 
Gavel's bang,uphold the law 
Up on my soapbox, a leader 
Out to change the world 
Down in my pulpit as the holler 
Than-thou-could-be-messenger of God

Wage the war on organized crime 
Sneak attacks, repel down the rocks 
Behind the lines 
Some people risk to employ me 
Some people live to destroy me 
Either way they die 

They killed my wife, and my baby 
With hopes to enslave me 
First mistake' last mistake! 
Paid by the alliance, to slay all the giants 
Next mistake... no more mistakes! 

Fill the cracks in,with judicial granite 
Because I don't say it, don't mean I ain't thinkin' it 
Next thing you know, they'll take my thoughts away 
I know what I said, now I must scream of the overdose 
And the lack of mercy killings

Hangar 18
Welcome to our fortress tall 
Take some time to show you around 
Impossible to break these walls 
For you see the steel is much too strong 
Computer banks to rule the world 
Instruments to sight the stars 

Possibly I've seen to much 
Hangar 18 I know too much 

Foreign life forms inventory 
Suspended state of cryogenics 
Selective amnesia's the story 
Believed foretold but who'd suspect 
The military Intelligence 
Two words combined that can't make sense 


Take no prisonners
Got one chance, infiltrate them 
Get it right, terminate them 
The Panzers will, permeate them 
Break their pride, denigrate them 
And their people, retrograde them 
Typhus, deteriate them 
Epidemic, devastate them 
Take no prisoners, cremate them 

Going to war, give 'em hell 
D-Day, next stop Normandy 
Beginning of the end 
We know how to and sure as shit we'll win 
War is peace sure man 
A retreat for the damned 
A playground for the demented 
A heaven for those who walk this world 
Bereft of heart and soul 
Love and war they say all is fair 
Take his life 
But won't take his hair 
Your body has parts your 
Country can spare 
By the way son here's 
Your wheelchair 

He once had to be all he could be 
Now he's nothing for no one nowhere to see 
Funny thing, he's like you and me 
It's a funny thing, a funny thing 
Tears streak his solemn stare 
Abandoned for wreckage nobody cares 
No one knew what would happen there 
No one spoke no one even dared 
Don't ask what you can do for your country 
Ask what your country can do for you 

Take no prisoners, take no shit 

Five magics
Bestow upon me knowledge 
Wizard-all knowing all wise 
I want to rule this kingdom 
Make sweet the breeze now defiled 
Dethrone the evil prince's Iron fists 
In velvet gloves of sin 
Parade the grey robed monks 
The vestal virgins,wheel the wyverns in 

Let the ceremony 
Consecrate the marriage 
Let me be the protege 
Of five magics 

Give me alchemy 
Give me wizardry 
Give me sorcery 
Magic if you please 
Master all of these 
Bring him to his knees 
I master five magics 

Possessed with hellish torment 
I master magics “5” 
Hunting the abyss lord 
Only one will stay alive 
He who lives by the sword 
Will surely also die 
He who lives in sin 
Will surely live the lie 

Poison was the cure
I miss the warm embrace I felt 
First time you touched me 
Secure and safe in open arms 
I should have known you'd crush me 

A snake you were when we met 
I loved you anyway 
Pulling out your poisoned fangs 
The venom never goes away 

Serpent swims free in my blood 
Dragons sleeping in my veins 
Jackyl speaking with tongue 
Roach egg laying in my brain 

Once stalked beneath your shadow 
Sleepwalking to the gallows 
I'm the sun that beats your brow in 
Til I finally threw the towel 
Never knowing if I'd wake up in a 
Whirlpool got redundant 
My brain was just some driftwood 
In a cesspool I became dead 
From a rock star to a desk fool 
Was my destiny someone said 
Loves a tidepool 
Taste the waters life's abundant 
Taste me 

Sitting up late at night 
I tiptoe through the darkness 
Cold as hell black as spades 
Aware of my immediate surrounding 
In my place I escape 
Up into my hideout 
Hiding from everyone 
My friends all say 
Dave your mental any way hey! 
Drift into a deeper state 
I stalk the cobwebbed stairways 
Dirt grits beneath my feet 
The stair creaks, I precariously sneak 

Hypnosis guides my hand 
I slipslide through the walkways 
Sit in granny's rockin' chair 
Memories are whirling by yeah 
Reminisce in the attic 
Lucretia waits impatiently 
Cobwebs make me squint 
The cobra so eloquently glints 
Moonbeams surge through the sky 
The crystal ball's energized 
Surely that like the cat waiting 
Lucretia rocks away 

Tornado of souls
This morning I made the call 
The one that ends it all 
Hanging up, I wanted to cry 
But dammit, this well's gone dry 
Not for the money, not for the fame 
Not for the power, just no more games 

But now I'm safe in the eye of the tornado 
I can't replace the lies, that let a 1000 days go 
No more living trapped inside 
In her way I'll surely die 
In the eye of the tornado, blow me away 

You‘ll grow to loathe my name 
You'll hate me just the same 
You won't need your breath 
And soon you'll meet your death 
Not from the years, not from the use 
Not from the tears, just self abuse 

Who's to say, what's for me to say 
Who's to say, what's for me to be 
Who's to say, what's for me to do 
Cause a big nothing it'll be for me 

The land of opportunity 
The golden chance for me 
My future looks so bright 
Now I think I've seen the light 

Can't say what's on my mind 
Can't do what I really feel 
In this bed I made for me 
Is where I sleep, I really feel 

I warn you of the fate 
Proven true too late 
Your tongue twist perverse 
Come drink now of this curse 
And now I fill your brain 
I spin you round again 
My poison fills your head 
As I tuck you into bed 
You feel my fingertips 
You won't forget my lips 
You'll feel my cold breath 
It's the kiss of death 

Dawn patrol
Thermal count is rising 
In perpetual writhing 
The primordial ooze 
And the sanity they lose 

Awakened in the morning 
To more air pollution warnings 
Still we sleepwalk off to work 
While our nervous systems jerk 

Pretending not to notice 
How history had forebode us 
With the green house in effect 
Our environment was wrecked 

Now I can only laugh 
As I read our epitaph 
We end our lives as moles 
In the dark of dawn patrol 

Rust in peace... Polaris
Tremble you weaklings, cower in fear 
I am your ruler,land, sea and air 
Immense in my girth, erect I stand tall 
I am a nuclear murderer I am Polaris 

Ready to pounce at the touch of a button 
My system locked in on military gluttons 
Satan rears his ugly head, to spit into the wind 

I spread disease like a dog 
Discharge my payload a mile high 
Rotten egg air of death wrestles your nostrils 
I spread disease like a dog 
Discharge my payload a mile high 
Rotten egg air of death wrestles your nostrils 
Launch the Polaris,the end doesn't scare us 
When will this cease 
The warheads will all rust in peace 

Bomb shelters filled to the brim 
Survival such a silly whim 
World leaders sell missiles cheap 
Your stomach turns, your flesh creeps 
I rule on land, air and sea 
Pass judgement on humanity 
Winds blow from the bowels of hell 
Will we give warning,only time will tell 


High priest of holocaust, fire from the sea 
Nuclear winter spreading disease 
The day of final conflict 
All pay the price 
The third world war 
Rapes peace, takes life 

Back to the start, talk of the part 
When the Earth was cold as ice 
Total dismay as the sun passed away 
And the days were black as night 


Eradication of Earth's Population loves Polaris 

Holy wars - reprise

Skin o' my teeth
I had wrists donning slits 
Flowing constantly 
My broken body in a wreck 
Wrapped around a tree 
A crosswalk hit and run 
The finish line for me 
People clutter in the gutter 
Take a look and see 

No escaping pain 
You belong to me 
Clinging onto life 
By the skin o' my teeth 

My blood flows through the streets 
Deluge from the wounds 
Empty jars of sleeping pills 
On the dresser of my room 
My wet brain neighbor cranes 
His neck to see in time, 
The white lights a train 
Bearing down on me 

Solo • Marty 

I won't feel the hurt 
I'm not trash any longer 
That that doesn't kill me 
Only makes me stronger 
I need a ride to the morgue 
That's what 911 is for 
So, tag my toe and don't forget 
Ooh to close the drawer 


In my darkest hour
In my hour of need 
Ha, no, you're not there 
And though I reached out for you 
Wouldn't lend a hand. 

Through the darkest hour 
Grace did not shine on me 
It feels so cold, very cold 
No one cares for me. 

Did you ever think I get lonely 
Did you ever think that I needed love 
Did you ever think to stop thinking 
You're the only one that I'm thinking of. 

You'll never know how hard I tried 
To find my space and satisfy you too. 

Things will be better when I'm dead and gone 
Don't try to understand, knowing you I'm probably wrong. 

But oh how I lived my life for you 
Still you'd turn away 
Now as I die for you 
My flesh still crawls as I breathe your name 
All these years I thought I was wrong 
Now I know it was you 
Raise you head, raise your face your eyes 
Tell me who you think you are 

I walk, I walk alone 
Into the promised land. 
There's a better place for me 
But it's far, far away 

Rverlasting life for me 
In a perfect world 
But I gotta die first, 
Please God send me on my way. 

Time has a way of taking time 
Loneliness is not only felt be fools 
Alone I call to ease the pain 
Yearning to be held by you, alone so alone, I'm lost 
Consumed by the pain 
The pain, the pain, the pain. 
Won't you hold me again 
You just laughed, ha ha, bitch 

My whole life is work built on the past 
The time has come when all things shall pass 
This good thing passed away.

The mother of all that is evil 
Her lips are poisonous venom 
Wicked temptress knows how to please 
The priestess roars, “Get down on your knees” 

The rite of the praying mantis 
Kiss the bones of the enchantress 
Spellbound searching through the night 
A howling man surrenders the fight 

One look in her lusting eyes 
Savage fear in you will rise 
Teeth of terror sinking in 
The bite of the she-wolf 
 One look in her lusting eyes 
Savage fear in you will rise 
Teeth of terror sinking in 
The bite of the she-wolf 

My desires of flesh obey me 
The lioness will enslave me 
Another heart beat than my own 
The sound of claws on cobblestone, I'm stoned 


Beware what stalks you in the night 
Beware the she-wolf and her bite 
Her mystic lips tell only lies 

Beware what stalks you in the night 
Beware the she-wolf and her bite 
Her hidden will to kill in disguise 

Lost in a dream 
Nothing is what it seems 
Searching my head 
For the words that you said 

Tears filled my eyes 
As we said our last goodbyes 
The sad scene replays 
Of you walking away 

My body aches from mistakes 
Betrayed by lust 
We lied to each other so much 
That in nothing we trust 

Time and again 
She repeats let's be friends 
I smile and say yes 
Another truth bends, 
I must confess 

I try to let go, but I know 
We'll never end 'til we're dust 
We lied to each other again 
But I wish I could trust 

My body aches from mustakes 
Betrayed by lust 
We lied to each other so much 
That in nothing we trust 
God help me please, on my knees 
Betrayed by lust 
We lied to each other so much 
Now there's nothing we trust 

How could this be happening to me 
I'm lying when I say, “Trust me” 
I can't believe this is true 
Trust hurts 
Why does trust equal suffering?



My body aches from mistakes 
Betrayed by lust 
We lied to each other so much 
That in nothing we trust 
God help me please, on my knees 
Betrayed by lust 
We lied to each other so much 

Absolutely nothing we trust 

Symphony of destruction
You take a mortal man, 
And put him in control 
Watch him become a god, 
Watch peoples heads a'roll 

Just like the Pied Piper 
Led rats through the streets 
We dance like marionettes, 
Swaying to the Symphony' 
Of Destruction 

Acting like a robot, 
Its metal brain corrodes. 
You try to take its pulse, 
Before the head explodes. 

Solo • Marty 

The Earth starts to rumble 
World powers fall 
A'warring for the heavens, 
A peaceful man stands tall 
A tall... 
A tall... 


Peace sells
What do you mean, “I don't believe in God”?
I talk to him every day. 
What do you mean, “I don‘t support your system”?
I go to court when I have to. 
What do you mean, “I can't get to work on time”?
I got nothing better to do 
And, what do you mean, “I don't pay my bills”?
Why do you think I'm broke' Huh?

If there's a new way, 
I'll be the first in line. 
But, it better work this time. 

What do you mean, “I hurt your feelings”?
I didn't know you had any feelings. 
What do you mean, “I ain't kind”?
I'm just not your kind. 
What do you mean, “I couldn't be president, of the United States of America”?
Tell me something, it's still “We the people,” right?


Can you put a price on peace?
Peace sells' 
Peace sells' 
Peace sells' but who's buying?
Peace sells' but who's buying?
Peace sells' but who's buying?
Peace sells' but who's buying?
No, peace sells'
