 Lashing out the action, returning the reaction

Weak are ripped and torn away

Hypnotizing power, crushing all that cower

Battery is here to stay
  Smashing through the boundaries
  lunacy has found me
  cannot stop the Battery
  Pounding out aggression
  turns into obsession
  cannot kill the Battery
  Cannot kill the family
  Battery is found in me
Crushing all deceivers, mashing non-believers

never ending potency

Hungry violence seeker, feeding off the weaker

Breeding on insanity
Circle of Destruction, Hammer comes crushing

Powerhouse of energy

Whipping up a fury, Dominating flurry

We create the Battery

Master of Puppets

End of passion play, crumbling away
I'm your source of self-destruction
Veins that pump with fear, sucking darkest clear
Leading on your deaths construction

  Taste me you will see
  more is all you need
  you're dedicated to
  how I'm killing you
       Come crawling faster
      obey your Master
      your life burns faster
      obey your Master
    Master of Puppets I'm pulling your strings
   twisting your mind and smashing your dreams
   Blinded by me, you can't see a thing
   Just call my name, `cause I'll hear you scream
   Just call my name, `cause I'll hear you scream

[End Chorus]
Needlework the way, never you betray
life of death becoming clearer
Pain monopoly, ritual misery
chop your breakfast on a mirror

Master, Master, Where's the dreams that I've been after?
Master, Master, You promised only lies
Laughter, Laughter, All I hear and see is laughter
Laughter, Laughter, laughing at my cries

Hell is worth all that, natural habitat
just a rhyme without a reason
Neverending maze, drift on numbered days
now your life is out of season


[Fade out with evil laughter].

The Thing that Should Not Be

Messenger of Fear in sight
Dark deception kills the light
Hybrid children watch the sea
Pray for Father, roaming free

  fearless Wretch
  He watches
  lurking beneath the sea
  great Old One
  forbidden site
  He searches
  Hunter of the Shadows is rising
                           in madness You dwell
Crawling Chaos, underground
cult has summoned, twisted sound

Out from ruins once possessed
fallen city, living death
  fearless Wretch
  He watches
  lurking beneath the sea
  timeless sleep
  has been upset
  He awakens
  Hunter of the Shadows is rising
                           in madness You dwell
Not dead which eternal lie
stranger eons Death may die

drain you of your sanity
face The Thing That Should Not Be

  fearless Wretch
  He watches
  lurking beneath the sea
  great Old One
  forbidden site
  He searches
  Hunter of the Shadows is rising
                           in madness You dwell.

Welcome Home (Sanitarium)

Welcome to where time stands still
no one leaves and no one will
Moon is full, never seems to change
just labeled mentally deranged
Dream the same thing every night
I see our freedom in my sight
No locked doors, No windows barred
No things to make my brain seem scarred
Sleep my friend and you will see
that dream is my reality
They keep me locked up in this cage
can't they see it's why my brain says Rage

  Sanitarium, leave me be
  Sanitarium, just leave me alone

Build my fear of what's out there
and cannot breathe the open air
Whisper things into my brain
assuring me that I'm insane
They think our heads are in their hands
but violent use brings violent plans
Keep him tied, it makes him well
he's getting better, can't you tell?

No more can they keep us in
Listen, damn it, we will win
They see it right, they see it well
but they think this saves us from our Hell

  Sanitarium, leave me be
  Sanitarium, just leave me alone
  Sanitarium, just leave me alone

Fear of living on
natives getting restless now
Mutiny in the air
got some death to do
Mirror stares back hard
Kill, it's such a friendly word
seems the only way
for reaching out again.

Disposable Heroes

Bodies fill the fields I see, hungry heroes end
No one to play soldier now, no one to pretend
running blind through killing fields, bred to kill them all
Victim of what said should be
a servant `til I fall

  Soldier boy, made of clay
  now an empty shell
  twenty one, only son
  but he served us well
  Bred to kill, not to care
  just do as we say
  finished here, Greeting Death
  he's yours to take away
   Back to the front
  you will do what I say, when I say
  Back to the front
  you will die when I say, you must die
  Back to the front
                you coward
                you servant
                you blindman

[End Chorus]

Barking of machinegun fire, does nothing to me now
sounding of the clock that ticks, get used to it somehow
More a man, more stripes you bare, glory seeker trends
bodies fill the fields I see
the slaughter never ends


Why, Am I dying?
Kill, have no fear
Lie, live off lying
Hell, Hell is here

I was born for dying

Life planned out before my birth, nothing could I say
had no chance to see myself, molded day by day
Looking back I realize, nothing have I done
left to die with only friend
Alone I clench my gun

Back to the front.

Leper Messiah

Spineless from the start, sucked into the part
circus comes to town, you play the lead clown
Please, please
spreading his disease, living by his story
Knees, knees
falling to your knees, suffer for his glory
You will

  Time for lust, time for lie
  time to kiss your life goodbye
  Send me money, send me green
  Heaven you will meet
  Make a contribution
  and you'll get a better seat

[End Chorus]
   Bow to Leper Messiah

Marvel at his tricks, need your Sunday fix
blind devotion came, rotting your brain
Chain, chain
Join the endless chain
Fame, Fame
Infection is the game, stinking drunk with power
We see

   Bow to Leper Messiah

Witchery, weakening
Sees the sheep are gathering
set the trap, hypnotize
now you follow





Damage, Inc.

Dealing out the agony within
charging hard and no one's gonna give in
Living on your knees, conformity
or dying on your feet for honesty
Inbred, our bodies work as one
bloody, but never cry submission
Following our instinct not a trend
go against the grain until the end

  Blood will follow blood
  Dying time is here
  Damage Incorporated

[End Chorus]

Slamming through, don't fuck with razorback
stepping out?  You'll feel our hell on your back
Blood follows blood and we make sure
life ain't for you and we're the cure
Honesty is my only excuse
Try to rob us of it, but it's no use
Steamroller action crushing all
Victim is your name and you shall fall


We chew and spit you out
we laugh, you scream and shout
All flee, with fear you run
You'll know just where we come from

   Damage Incorporated

Damage jackals ripping right through you
sight and smell of this, it gets me goin'
Know just how to get just what we want
tear it from your soul in nightly hunt
Fuck it all and fucking no regrets
Never happy ending on these dark sets
All's fair for Damage Inc. you see
step a little closer if you please
