Dark Lyrics


1. Walk A Crooked Mile

If you were in the movies,
Who would you play?
If you were tried for murder
What could you say?
And if you were out to lunch
What would you eat?
We wanna know the answers
Who do you want to beat?

Don't show your fear,
Keep it out of site,
Don't loose your place in here
And you might be all right

Don't say nothing shut your mouth
Out of time work it out
You're leaving in a cruel world
And your face is out of style
Boogey man, magic word,
Walk a crooked mile.

If you were Armageddon
Who would you spare?
If you were judge and jury,
Why would you care?
And if you were out of breath
How would you breathe?
The world deserves the answers,
What do you have up your sleeve?

Can't show your hand
Find another way,
Can't play that ace in here,
Never see another day.

Plead no contest, pass the buck,
Running scared, you ain't so tough
We hold rehearsal for your death
We're tired of your smile
Boogey man, see what you get
Walk a crooked mile.

Standing in the spotlight,
What would you need?
If you were a soldier,
How would you bleed?
And if you were in the rain,
What would you wear?
We're hungry for the answers,
Don't seem right, bu we don't care.
Don't bring your friends,
Send them all away
Don't meet your end in here,
Don't throw your life away.

Don't you change, don't drop your guard,
Double bluff throw down your cards,
Death has put his mark on you
Man and boy and child,
Boogey man, back to start
Walk a crooked mile.

2. Down The Line

Hey babe, you gotta wake up now,
I got something to say,
The way I feel I can't stay here
I gotta leave today,
I can't stand to settle down,
I gotta catch a ride
I gotta get outta here,
Because I wanna be outside,

You look just as good to me,
And you ain't done nothing wrong,
There's places that I gotta be,
I been standing still too long,
Baby please don't be mad,
you treated me real fine,
Best thing I ever had

But I gotta move on, down the line,

I gotta be in the wind,
I wanna see the sun
I know I can't be still no more,
Not now the still has gone,
I can't waste no more time,
So I'll be on my way,
You know I tried real hard,
I tried so hard to stay here,

I don't know what's wrong with me
I don't know what I'm running from,
I got some other place to be,
And I'm gonna try it on
Baby please don't be cold,
You treated me real fine
You treated me like gold,

But I gotta move on, down the line

Baby I gotta go, know I've got to move,
Gotta take a gamble,
Even though I'm born to lose,
I'll pass this way again,
I'll see you by and by,
I wish that I could stay,
I wish that I was lying,

You been real good to me
But it's time that I was gone,
There's things you just can't see,
And there's something going on,

Baby please don't be sad
You treated me real fine
I know I must be mad,
But I gotta move, gotta move
Move on down the line.

3. Brave New World

So this a new beginning, as the new century dawns
The world's a better place for you and me
Shouldn't smoke or drink or watch that evil filthy porn.
Be Christian and God will set you free.
But being poor is worse than having AIDS,
The homeless live in boxes at our feet
Living in a constant state of dull frustrated rage,
The innocent shot daily in the street

Brave new world, brave new world, brave new world

The government has always been you pal as you well know
Absolute corrupted power play,
If we all wipe each other out, it only goes to show
While the bureaucrats get richer by the day,
Smoking dope will get you more than murder one,
And even worse than statutory rape,
Don't understand your children, so you send them all to jail,
Believe me, you will never make a worse mistake.


The government is coming and it wants to be your friend,
It wants to show you how to be a snitch
Inform upon your children, the inevitable end,
Is everyone's a victim but the filthy fucking rich,
And religion, like the monster that it is
Keeps telling you to turn the other cheek
God is on your side, but I don't think that you're on his,
If Jesus showed up now he'd be in jail by next week,


4. Voices From The War

Where do all the dead men go
From the battlefields?
Where are their exploded bones
Their useless swords and shields?
In the Hall of Ancient gods,
Are they now at piece,
Or are they fighting evermore
To earn their last release?

Midgard, Heaven, Kingdom Come
Are they all the same
Fallen heroes warriors
The valiant the slain
Did they believe or did they die in vain?

Immortal dead, fathers and sons
When all is said and all is done,
Running for your life, dying for the cause
Pawns in the game
Voices from the war.

The men they march away to fight
Their fate is never clean
They never all come home again
To tell of what they've seen
In the battles bloody fury
Is the verdict just?
Executioner, judge and jury
Forgotten in the dust.

Valhalla Happy hunting ground
Are they all the same
Fallen heroes, warriors
The valiant the slain.
Did they believe or did they die ashamed?

Immortal dead, brothers and sons
All is said, all is done
Fighting to the death
What did they do it for?
Soldiers of the cross
Voices from the war.

And so you unearth a sense of futility in your miserable life,
And after all why are you surprised,
You know nothing nor care to know anything,
And so the world is going to fuck with you.
Dead heroes who fell in countless wars,
Who gave their tommorrows for your today mean nothing to you,
And I am certain that they are truly sorry for their sacrifice.
So if you feel that the world is treating you badly just remember,
They're probably coming back from the dead to haunt you,
For the rest of your putrid, fucking life.
Ha ha ha ha ha...!

The battlefields are silent now,
The graves all look the same
The crosses without number
And so many without names
In the battles misery
Drowned in blood and fear.
A hundred hundred thousand
For a hundred thousand years

Are they in a better place,
Or do they lie unclaimed,
The heroes, the deserters,
The cowardly, the shamed
Did they know or did they die insane?

Mourn for the lost,
Stolen from their lives,
Gone before their time
No chance to say goodbye,
Fighting to the death
How could they be so sure?
Voices from the grave,
Voices from the war.

5. Mine All Mine

Good lookin' girl in the corner
She nice enough to eat
She look over and she smile a little
From her head to her feet.
Over and over and over
Trying to catch her eye,
If I don't do something, it'll come to nothing
Hate myself the rest of my life.

[1st Chorus]
You can't accuse me honey,
You know I feel just fine,
I know and you know that I know
Oh Yeah, I know you're mine all mine

Girl was looking me over
Just checking me out
Looked me in the eye, and I was like to die
Knew what I was all about
Tell me, tell me, please tell me,
Tell me what you're gonna say,
If you don't say yes, I'm gonna be depressed
Sure hope I'm doing OK.

[2nd Chorus]
You can't accuse me honey,
Talking dirty ain't no crime,
I know you know and you know that I know,
Oh Yeah, I know you're mine all mine

Said she was thinking it over,
She got a look in her eye,
Told me her name, expected the same,
And so I told her mine,
Forever and ever and ever,
I swear I can't be no liar
Gonna be your man
And you'll be glad that I am
Burn you in sexual fire

[3rd Chorus]
You can't refuse me honey,
We'll get along just fine.
I know you know and I know where you go,
Oh Yeah, I know you're mine all mine

6. Shut Your Mouth

You been around the world
You think the world is yours,
All right, you been up all night,
So why can't you get it right?
No chance
No dance for you
No teenage romance
Out of the mix, out of the mix.

Ain't no way out, your momma was right,
Shut your mouth, shut your mouth.
You weren't home last night,
You don't come home no more.
Gotta be fair, your don't say where
You don't know, nobody cares.
No chance, no dance for you, no teenage romance,
None of your ticks, none of your tricks.


Can you tell me the truth, can it get much worse?
Don't tell me no lies, 'cos I can read your eyes.
You're everything that we despise,
No chance, no dance for you, no teenage romance
Better be quick
Better be quick


7. Kill The World

Out of the way, you're in the lost and found
Been a long time waiting 'til we hit the ground
See the fool, loose it all,
Ain't no lifetime long enough to use it all
You say it's here tomorrow, gone today,
Tell the judge its my way or the highway.
And in the end it's all the same.

You got to move, momma didn't raise no fools,
You got to fight, live or die shoot out the lights,
Pass the word,
Save yourself and kill the world,
Save yourself and kill the world

We got to get you home because you're burned out,
Didn't take too long before we found it out,
See the drowned, drink it all,
Ain't no ocean deep enough to sink it all,
You say it's here right now and gone before,
Tell the hand we're harder than a hardcore,
And in the end it's all a game.


So now your back, I hope you know your place,
Didn't take too long to get in your face,
See the burned, light your fire,
Ain't no Hell that burns enough for my desire,
You say its blasphemy, that's too bad,
Could be the best time that you ever had,
And in the end, the hungry flames.


8. Dr. Love

Working the room with her cat clothes on,
Messing up my mind
Mouth just made for kissing
Says a good man's hard to find,
I'm just hangin' standin' there,
Can't believe my eyes,
She looks so fine and she smiles so kind,
Make a strong man cry.

She does me in, and she'll do you too.
She only got to shake it,
And I'm shaking in my shoes

You know she's a natural woman
You know she likes that fine
You know she's a total killer,
And she ain't even trying
I want her so bad I get shivers
If I can't see her enough
She asked me my name, I said "Honey,
My name is Doctor Love"

Sat down by me and I told her
She's like to drive me blind
She smiled like a hungry tiger
Said a hard mans good to find
I just stood there helpless,
Wondering what I should move,
She said "Come on honey, show me your money
Ain't got no time to lose".

She does me in, and she'll do you to
She only has to shake it,
And she shakes me in my shoes.
You know she's a lovely lady
She ain't no easy girl
She make me wanna love her long time
To make her toenails curl.

I want her so bad I get crazy
If she don't love me enough
I want to examine her stamina
'Cos my name is Doctor Love.

She got no human pity
She don't care who she hurts
The face of an evil angel
Says a hard man makes her worse
I want to drive her crazy
Get her in her in between
But she makes it awful hard
If you see what I mean
She does me in, and she'll do you too
She only got to shake it
And I'm shaking in my shoes

You know she's a classic beauty
She don't want to fight
She like a man who's standing tall
And stood up all right
I want her so bad I get crazy
If she don't call me up
She said, "Honey, do you want me to call you?"
I said "Just call me Doctor Love"

9. No Remorse

All men know what waits for us
Wooden box, worm and dust
Maybe heaven, pearly gates
Hasty prayer, when it's too late
Burn in hell, all is lost,
Purgatory, fingers crossed
Which or Who, your or mine?
Eternity's a long, long time.

Never mind, never fail
Right this time, on the nail
Never mind, Never mind, Never mind, Never mind
No remorse, No remorse, No remorse, No remorse

You know it well, confess it now,
Christian guilt, is what's allowed,
Other words are heresy
Burn forever 1, 2, 3
What can you do? No guaranties,
Hopeful begging, on your knees,
All in all, you're going down.
Winged sinner or singed clown


Repent ye fool, God will hear,
Christmas carol, midnight clear
Otherwise, pits of fire
Punishment for base desire,
Satan waits, goatee beard,
Long old tail, nasty spear,
If you believe these tales they tell
Then you deserve to burn in Hell.


10. Red Raw

monster in the moonlight
devils in his head
how can they talk so loud
tonight is his to take nobody knows his face
something he will not allow
unseen wet dream steel claw.
moonshine carmine red raw

horror in the starlight, faces in the rain,
killer want to fall in love
worms in his mind,
ravenous and blind,
now he starts to feel good.

all blood is his to drink
he takes his fill and more,
face and hands all red
drown in sweet, sweet gore,
all blood is his tonight,
he bathes in red delight
and all he wants to do
is more and more and more

terror without pity
fever in his mind
death, confusion, love and blood,
looking for a perfect one,
seek and ye shall find
crazy and he feels good
unseen, wet dream, sharp claw,
moonshine, carmine, red raw.

monster in the gaslight,
shivers in the cold, looking for a bad girl
whimpering and mad
but he ain't feeling bad
crazy in his own world


horror in the shadows,
red and white and dead
rain is falling in her hair
now what he loves best.
head dips to the wounds
face a scarlet nightmare
unseen, wet dream, skin crawl
blade shine, carmine, red raw.

horror in the twilight
women run and scream
killer's gone a long time
red mask turns to grin,
see the shape he's in
this is what he's born for.


11. Serial Killer

I am the serial killer
I am the bloody hand
I am the chief whore taker
I am the chosen one.

I am the red straight razor,
The one who bathes in blood;
I am the Boogey-man, I am
The empty yawning hood,
Look not for pity, no;
I am the heartless man,
I come to fix all things,
I am the one man band.

You cannot yet imagine,
How you will dance for me;
But you will dance forever
To the tune that I decree.
The kingdom of the worm,
Is all things to us all,
But I will teach you many things,
before I let you fall.

I am the black dead nightmare.
I bring a light so bright;
To illuminate the path we take;
I show the way that all hearts break,
And I will see the old world's back be broken

As we descend into the awful



12. The Game

It's time to play the game...
Time to play the game! Ha ha

It's all about the game and how you play it.
All about control and if you can take it.
All about your debt and if you can pay it.
It's all about pain and who's gonna make it.

I am the game, you don't wanna play me.
I am control, no way you can change me.
I am heavy debt, no way you can pay me.
I am the pain and I know you can't take me.

Look over your shoulder, ready to run.
Like a good little bitch, from a smoking gun.
I am the game and I make the rules.
So move on out here and die like a fool.
Try to figure out what my moods gonna be.
Come on over sucker, why don't you ask me?
Don't you forget that the price you can pay
Cause I am the game and I want to play....

It's time to play the game........hahaha
Time to play the game!

It's all about the game and how you play it.
It's all about control and if you can take it.
It's all about your debt and if you can pay it.
It's all about pain and who's gonna make it.

I am the game, you don't wanna play me.
I am control, there's no way you can change me.
I am your debt, and you know you can't pay me.
I am your pain and I know you can't take me.

Play the game
Your gonna be the same
Your gonna change your name
Your gonna die in flames

Ha ha

Time to play the game!
It's time to play the game...
It's time to play the game...
It's time to play the game...
Time to play the game! Ha ha
