    War Pigs

    Generals gathered in their masses
    Just like witches at black masses
    Evil minds that plot destruction
    Sorcerers of deathís construction
    In the fields the bodies burning
    As the war machine keeps turning
    Death and hatred to mankind
    Poisoning their brainwashed minds
    Oh Lord yeah

    Politicians hide themselves away
    They only started the war
    Why should they go out to fight
    They leave that all to the poor

    Time will tell on their power minds
    Making war just for fun
    Treating people just like pawns in chess
    Wait till their judgment day comes

    Now in darkness world stops turning
    Ashes were the bodies burning
    No more war pigs have the power
    Hand of God has struck the hour
    Day of Judgment God is calling
    On their knees the war pigs crawling
    Begging mercies for their sins
    Satan laughing spreads his wings
    Oh Lord yeah

    Finished with my woman
    íCause she couldnít help me with my mind
    People think Iím insane
    Because I am frowning all the time

    All day long I think of things
    But nothing seems to satisfy
    Think Iíll lose my mind
    If I donít find something to pacify

    Can you help me
    Occupy my brain
    Oh yeah

    I need someone to show me
    The things in life that I canít find
    I canít see the things that make true happiness
    I must be blind

    Make a joke and I will sigh
    And you will laugh and I will cry
    Happiness I cannot feel
    And love to me is so unreal

    And so as you hear these words
    Telling you now of my state
    I tell you to enjoy life
    I wish I could but itís too late

    Planet Caravan

    We sail through endless skies
    Stars shine like eyes
    The black night sighs
    The Moon in silver dreams
    Falls down in beams
    Light of the night
    The Earth a purple blaze
    Of sapphire haze
    In orbit always

    While down below the trees
    Bathed in cool breeze
    Silver starlight breaks
    Dawn from night
    And so we pass on by
    The crimson eye
    Of great god Mars
    As we travel the universe

    Iron Man

    Has he lost his mind
    Can he see or is he blind
    Can he walk at all
    Or if he moves will he fall

    Is he alive or dead
    Has he thoughts within his head
    Weíll just pass him there
    Why should we even care

    He was turned to steel
    In the great magnetic field
    When he traveled time
    For the future of mankind

    Nobody wants him
    He just stares at the world
    Planning his vengeance
    That he will soon unfurl

    Now the time is here
    For Iron Man to spread fear
    Vengeance from the grave
    Kills the people he once saved

    Nobody wants him
    They just turn their heads
    Nobody helps him
    Now he has his revenge

    Heavy boots of lead
    Fill his victims full of dread
    Running as fast as they can
    Iron Man lives again!

    Electric Funeral

    Reflex in the sky
    Warn you youíre gonna die
    Storm coming, you better hide
    From the atomic tide

    Flashes in the sky
    Turns houses into sties
    Turns people into clay
    Radiation minds decay

    Robot minds of robot slaves
    Lead them to atomic graves
    Plastic flowers, melting sun
    Fading moon falls upon

    Dying world of radiation
    Victims of manís frustration
    Burning globe of obscene fire
    Like electric funeral pyre

    Buildings crashing down
    To earthís cracking ground
    Rivers turned to mud
    Eyes melt into blood

    Earth lies in deathbed
    Clouds cry for the dead
    Tearing falling rain
    Ease the burning pain

    Electric Funeral

    And so in the sky
    Shines the electric eye
    Supernatural king
    Takes Earth under his wing

    Heavenís golden chorus sings
    Hellís angels flap their wings
    Evil souls fall to hell
    Ever trapped in burning cell!

    Hand of Doom

    What you gonna do
    Timeís caught up with you
    Now you wait your turn
    You know thereís no return

    Change your empty rules
    You join the other fools
    Turn to something new
    Now itís killing you

    First it was the bomb, Vietnam napalm
    Disillusioning, you push the needle in
    From life you escape, realityís black drape
    Colors in your mind, satisfy your time

    Oh you, you know you must be blind
    To do such things like this
    To take the sweet that you donít know
    Youíre giving Death a kiss
    Poor little fool now

    Your Mind is full of pleasure
    Your bodyís looking ill
    To you itís shallow leisure
    So drop the acid pill
    Donít stop to think now

    Youíre having a good time baby
    But that wonít last
    Your mindís all full of things
    Youíre living too fast
    Go out, enjoy yourself
    Donít bottle it in
    You need someone to help you
    Stick the needle in, yeah

    Now you know the scene
    Your skin starts turning green
    Your eyes no longer see lifeís reality
    Push the needle in
    Face Deathís sickly grin
    Holes are in your skin
    Caused by deadly pin

    Head starts spinning íround
    You Fall down to the ground
    Feel your body heave
    Death hand start to weave

    Itís too late to turn
    You donít want to learn
    Price of life is high
    Now youíre gonna die

    Fairies Wear Boots

    Goiní home late last night
    Suddenly I got a fright
    Yeah I looked through a window
    And surprised what I saw
    Fairy with boots and danciní with a dwarf Alright now

    Yeah, fairies wear boots and you gotta
    believe me
    Yeah, I saw it I saw it
    I tell you no lie
    Yeah, fairies wear boots and you gotta
    believe me
    I saw it, I saw it with my own two eyes
    All right now

    So I went to the doctor to see what he
    could give me
    He said son, son, youíve gone too far
    íCause smokiní and trippiní is all that you do
