about

And this is where it all began. Before the madness and mayhem of the stage. One lone butcher sat in his corner making rudimentary noise and nonsense. It isn't pretty but it is the beginning...

Track Name: Strip Off Your Skin
Relax baby cuz you're going down
Relax baby cuz you're going down
Don't make that face as it falls flat against the ground

Calm down sugar don't act so surprised
Calm down sugar don't act so surprised
When you're living in shit you know that will draw the flies
(Yes it will)

Pride comes before the fall
You suck it down - you want it all
Your heads a top - it pops right off
Take your fill while walking tall

Chorus:
Strip off your skin
We can begin
Stop wearing that suit
Cuz you're hiding the truth

Don't sleep honey cuz they're after you
Don't sleep honey cuz they're after you
Just because you can't see them doesn't make it less true

Hush now darling don't make so much noise
Hush now darling don't make so much noise
When you're acting like an object they will treat you like a toy
(Like you are)

CHORUS

Pride comes before the fall
You suck it down - you want it all
Your heads a top - it pops right off
Take your fill while walking tall

CHORUS
Track Name: A Recipe for the Modern Age
Whittle whittle worn away
Scratch and scrape - break and fray
Muddled down a shake is made
From the ash of another day

With a pinch of discontent
Sprinkle in free range contempt
2 cups of sin - mixed in repent
A tablespoon of what was meant

Garnish plate with good intention
Pick the plant of growing tension
Don't forget the apprehension
Probably not worth a mention

Simmer slowly is the trick
Served along with pins and pricks
Finger foods for the dead and sick
Sweet meats tender tasty licks

A meal fit for modern kings
Like flightless birds with broken wings
Useless lumps of shapeless things
A throat that's cut no song to sing

Animals of present past
In a future not meant to last
Still not full and eating vast
Going strong but fading fast

Chorus:
A recipe for the modern age
The time has come to set the stage
So glad it's over turn the page
Subdue your hate and calm your rage

No more times for wants or needs
Consuming more than a disease
But what you get is what you see
So come on now and follow my lead

The menu's written long ago
Much further back than you know
Don't hesitate when it's time to go
It's coming fast so don't move slow

The concept leaves you wanting more
Seconds please then out the door
Leave the money on the floor
Back to the streets just like a whore

Come get what you need

CHORUS

When it's over turn and smile
you're free now from that denial
Track Name: Mr. Keepsake
I prayed for you and there you are
Now that you're here - you won't go far
And if you go - you will run and tell
We can't have that - he won't do well

I stop and hear the floorboards creak
They tell me now that you ca't speak
I hear you there below the grain
Beneath the space removed from pain

There is a wooden box
Where Mr. Keepsake talks

He says to me
"No need to hurry take it slow"
He says to me
"Keep it all they're never know"
He says to me
"Now pick up the parts it's time to go"
He says to me
"Listen to me I"ll set you free"

You gave your heart to someone else
I put it right there on the shelf
Decaying with your wanting eyes
And ruby lips once spewing lies

You thought you had the best of me
But mister mister helped me see
The best kept secrets are the ones
Involving tape, blindfolds, and guns

There is a wooden box
Where Mr. Keepsake stalks

He says to me
"They don't understand you like I do"
He says to me
"They'll use you up when they are through"
He says to me
"There's nothing left out there for you"
He says to me
"Listen to me I"ll set you free"

And when they came to take me
Away from you - away from he
To send me to the scaffold high
I knew at once I had to die

They looked they looked into the box
But mister mister can't be caught
And here and hereI feel the knot
All alone again to hear him talk

He says to me
Track Name: Tantrum
-instrumental-
Track Name: Zero Hour
Stand down - stand up
March now - corrupt
Left foot - right next
Black soot - collects

Front lines - fallout
Dark times - no doubt
Fox holes - lie still
Our goals - let's kill

Chorus:
Zero hour
Countdown
You kiss the bullet as you fall right to the ground
It isn't over til the white flash burns your skin
When you bend over will you tell me when it's in

Cold sweat - hot lead
No threat - he's dead
No fear - full force
We're here - of course

Loose lips - reap lies
Insects - deny
Our sects - my god
Infect - death squads

Chorus (ext)
Zero hour
Countdown
You kiss the bullet as you fall right to the ground
It isn't over til the white flash burns your skin
When you bend over will you tell me when it's in
Zero Hour
Begins
The only meaning is the measure of your sins
This war ain't over til the victims taste the lead
So watch your back when they come for you instead

Yes they're coming for you

Stand down - stand up
March now - corrupt
Now where to go
We're here - you know

Chorus (ext)
Track Name: Brother Number One (Two Million People Can't Be Wrong Mix)
Baby sweet baby there is no time to cry
Faster dig faster so many need to die

Unspeakable you said to me
My brother don't you lie
The voices told me you were there
Can you please tell me why
What did they do to you
Or tell me what'd they say
You had to purge them of their flesh
And make them go away

You can fertilize this land
With their supple bones
Carve a path with the mass
Forgottens and slones
Sullen pictures hung like leaves
Black and white black and blue
From the broken wooden trees
Are the faces we hardly knew

Baby sweet baby there is no time to cry
Faster dig faster so many need to die

Opposition wears me thin
I know I know I must
Cleanse the gene pool of the filth
With vigor and disgust
The weak are thus cuz they will fall
That's all they know they heed the call
And pave the way for my success
I'll beat them down til they confess
