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?

[Chorus:]
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 the president of the United States of America”?
Tell me something, it’s still “We the people”, right?

[Chorus: (repeat)]
If there’s a new way
I’ll be the first in line,
But, it better work this time.

Can you put a price on peace?
Peace,
Peace sells…,
Peace,
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?
[n+1 times more]
No, peace sells…

IN MY DARKEST HOURS

In my hour of need
Ha 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 your head raise your face your eyes
Tell me who you think you are, who ?

I walk, I walk alone
Into the promised land
There’s a better place for me
But it’s far, far away
Everlasting 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 by 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
But the time has come when all things shall pass
This good thing passed away

In my darkest hour

HOLY WARS.. 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 in 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 holier
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
thinking 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 too 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

Possibly I’ve seen too much
Hangar 18 I know too much.

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…be…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 to 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

SYMPHONY OF DESTRUCTION

You take a mortal man,
And put him in control
Watch him become a god
Watch peoples heads a’roll
A’roll…

[chorus:]
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
Explodes…

[Chorus]
[Solo – Marty]

The earth starts to rumble
World powers fall
A’warring for the heavens
A peaceful man stands tall
Tall…

[Chorus]

A TOUT LE MONDE

Don’t remember where I was
I realized life was a game
The more seriously I took things
The harder the rules became
I had no idea what it’d cost
My life passed before my eyes
When I found out how little I accomplished
All my plans denied

So as you read this know my friends
I’d love to stay with you all
Please smile when you think of me
My body’s gone that’s all

À tout le monde [To all the world]
À tout mes amis [To all my friends]
Je vous aime [I love you]
Je dois partir [I have to leave]
These are the last words
I’ll ever speak
And they’ll set me free

If my heart was still alive
I know it would surely break
And my memories left with you
There’s nothing more to say
Moving on is a simple thing
What it leaves behind is hard
You know the sleeping feel no more pain
And the living are scarred

À tout le monde [To all the world]
À tout mes amis [To all my friends]
Je vous aime [I love you]
Je dois partir [I have to leave]
These are the last words
I’ll ever speak
And they’ll set me free

So as you read this know my friends
I’d love to stay with you all
Please smile, smile when you think about me
My body’s gone that’s all

[2x]
À tout le monde [To all the world]
À tout mes amis [To all my friends]
Je vous aime [I love you]
Je dois partir [I have to leave]
These are the last words
I’ll ever speak
And they’ll set me free

TRUST

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
This 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 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
That in 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

Absolutely nothing we trust
