OVERKILL LYRICS

1. Mean Green Killing Machine


Somewhere out where no one knows
Runs a cool evolution fight
Way out there where no one goes
And it's got to keep moving
Got to keep getting it right
Sphere's to the piston charged
Ombustable delight
The single minded supercharged
That' got to get moving
Got to keep getting it right

A call to arms,
A call right through the dream,
A call to action
Blow up the in between
Feed, feed your engine
Feed, feed your Wolverine
Feed, feed the tension
Mean green killing machine

C'mon, c'mon and say what my name is
Mean green killing machine

The clock, your only friend
As time leaves it's debris
Your soul is on the mend
But time is killing me

I gave you everything
But a machine
I'll always be

They got nothing more to add to the conversation
They drink gasoline from a dirty glass
They got nothing but a sad–sad situation
With nothing more to ad to the damnation
Nuts & bolts & screws with no social class
They got nothing but a sad–sad situation
It's a sad, sad, sad situation
Nuts & bolts & screws, balls of brass

If you're out where no one goes
Where no one cares to lie
Keep 'em open don't you blink
I'm talking 'bout, talking 'bout your eyes
It's faster than the speed of light
And sonically disguised
There comes the mean green motherfucker blazing 'cross the sky

A call to arms,
A call right through the dream,
A call to action
Blow up the in between
Feed, feed your engine
Feed, feed your Wolverine
Feed, feed the tension
Mean green killing machine
Killing machine
Killing machine
Mean green killing machine


2. Goddamn Trouble


I felt a little better when the sun went down
I felt a little taller when I got up off the ground
Think I hurt my back when reaching for the top
The goddamn trouble
Ain't never gonna stop
I waited all day 'till they finally called my name
Right to the front of the line, and I brought my A-game
I was eye to eye with a two-wheeled cop
This goddamn trouble
Ain't never gonna stop, never gonna stop.

You see it didn't look good for your hero at large
He was stuck in the mud, stuck in the charge
Then they sent him away up the mountain top
Never gonna stop

Pushing the envelope, pull out the plug
Pushing the button, pulling the plug
Too, too much trouble, there goes the rug

I like my trouble tight, who's the say I'm right
Too much, goddamn trouble
All day and all night long, who's to say I'm wrong
Too much, goddamn trouble

Made my escape it was child's play
I was back in the race, I was winning the day
Yeah spitting gravel as I passed the cop
Goddamn trouble, just might stop
But I needed a plan and I needed it fast
I was winning the race but losing my ass
A siren blast and my heart did drop
Goddamn trouble, ain't never gonna stop
Never gonna stop
I grabbed a tape from the floor of the car
Jammed it in the dash and played Highway Star
With a foot of lead and that Chevy hop
Never gonna stop

You can't give it away, selling trouble by the light of day
And I won't give it a thought, what you've sold and what I've bought

We all went down to the river, we all went down to the race
We all went down where dead men float, down the river and their face
We all got into some trouble, with a hair not out of place
We all went down to the lazy old river, I tell ya gone without a trace

Goddamn trouble, it ain't never gonna stop!


3. Our Finest Hour


I can get you there, it ain't too far from here
On your side, let's take a ride, I'm a metallic engineer
So murder is a sin, but weapons set you free
Just hop on in, I'm gonna take you there, you're a lot like me!

Beats waiting on the corner
Your hand jammed down your pants
Take a ride, take a look, take a chance now, baby
A breakdown circumstance

Stand and pledge allegiance
To the air, the land, the sea
Take a ride, take a look, take a chance now, baby
You're a lot like me

Can't you see you're a lot like me
Can't you see it was meant to be
Can't you see you're a lot like me
Can't you see, can't you see

I'll be your conscience, I'll be your guide
I'll be the black-hand that stops your genocide
I'll be the understanding, undisputed power
I'll hold your hand in this our finest hour

I'll be your conscience, I'll be your guide
I'll be the black-hand that stops your genocide
I'll be the understanding, undisputed power
I'll hold your hand in this our finest hour

Hang on to the handle, we're just about to land
Lock and load, feel the road, keep it close at hand
So murder is a sin, to some it's just a game
Don't make a sound, low to the ground, I know we are the same

Beats waiting for that maybe
Ya finger up your nose
Take a ride, take a look, take a chance now, baby
And strike that bad ass pose

They haven't got a snowball's chance
Once they know your name
Take a ride, take a look, take a chance now, baby
I know we are the same

Can't you see you're a lot like me
Can't you see it was meant to be
Can't you see you're a lot like me
Can't you see we were meant to be
Meant to be, meant to be

I'll be your conscience, I'll be your guide
I'll be the black-hand that stops your genocide
I'll be the understanding, undisputed power
I'll hold your hand in this our finest hour

I'll be your conscience, I'll be your guide
I'll be the black-hand that stops your genocide
I'll be the understanding, undisputed power
I'll hold your hand, I'll hold your hand
I'll hold your hand, I'll hold your hand

Somebody call to the EMS
Somebody call to the priest
Somebody lay out a blessing on the soul of the deceased
Somebody dearly departed was not praying to the beast
Somebody call our finest hour on the soul of the deceased

I'm not going easy in the light of all this power
I'm not going easy in this our finest hour

[Solo: Linsk]

I'll be your conscience, I'll be your guide
I'll be the black-hand that stops your genocide
I'll be the understanding, undisputed power
I'll hold your hand in this our finest hour

I'll be your conscience, I'll be your guide
I'll be the black-hand that stops your genocide
I'll be the understanding, undisputed power
I'll hold your hand, I'll hold your hand

I'll be your conscience, I'll be your guide
I'll be the black-hand that stops your genocide
I'll be the understanding, undisputed power
I'll hold your hand in this our finest hour

I'll be your conscience, I'll be your guide
I'll be the black-hand that stops your genocide
I'll be the understanding, undisputed power
I'll hold your hand, I'll hold your hand in this our finest hour


4. Shine On


Someone left the cat out in the rain
Someone left us waiting here to deal with all the pain
Someone else was caught upon the wire
Someone else's life changed when he felt the fire

We got no patience but we get through
We got no patience but we got you

All of the complainers shout no fair
All the hurricaners with their fist up in the air
Someone gave the order, kill the pain
Someone else ignored her, left the cat out in the rain

One more fire, 'fore I die, one more fire get me high

Come on down to the fire
Come on down to the flame
Leave your problems behind ya
Shine on doomsday, c'mon on down

The circle closed in tight around the ring
When eagle takes to flight, the scorpion to sting
Someone panicked, someone threw the snitch
We all covered up, took shelter in the ditch

We got no patience but we get through
We got no patience but we got you

All of the complainers weren't there
All of the hurricaners, took to flight by the sea and air
They all panicked, melted in the rain
Someone left the cat out
Put a bullet in her brain

One more fire, 'fore I die, one more fire get me high

I'm losing myself in the rain,
I'm losing myself in the pouring rain
I'm going in, I'm not coming out
It's where I've been, I'm not coming out
I'm losing myself in the rain,
I'm losing myself in the pouring rain!


5. The Long Road


Bring your attitude, bring your will to win
We're going down the mountain boys
May take it on the chin
Alert the multitudes, and wear your thickest skin
We're going down the mountain boys
Little pig, little pig, let me come in

It's not enough to heed the call
It's not enough for the long haul
It's not enough, so give it your all
Onward, onward-upward

We've walked the long road a thousand times before
We held out head high and kicked right down the door
We've walked the long road a thousand times before

Pack your fortitude, your honor and your fight
We're going down the mountain boys
With an undivided right
Give 'em what they came for, by dawn's early light
We're goin' down the mountain boys
By god man, we will ignite

In the sun, 'til it's done, marching on
In the sun, 'til it's done, marching on
In the sun, 'til it's done


6. Let's All Go To Hades


Let's all go to Hades, on a tricked out bullet train
As our glasses overflow with French champagne
Let's all go to paradise on a supersonic jet
We'll drink German beer, roll our own cigarettes

When all the world has gone insane
And filled you up with all it's pain
When all you want to do is fucking scream
Do you know what I mean?

Let's all go to gay Paris and lay a rose at the Bataclan
We'll sing "Killed By Death" as we stand arm in arm
Then we'll head to Istanbul on the Orient Express
Wear your biker leather, you're not overdressed

Let's all go, take everyone we know
Jame them all insane the black Mercedes
Let's all ride, 'till everyone is fried
Let's have a ball, let's all go to Hades

The sleeper cars are quite affordable, clean
They're on the hot side, if you know what I mean
Our staff is trained, to be the finest and well
Last stop, all get off... see you in hell

All you motherfuckers check you guns at the door

Let's all go down to Hades, on a tricked out bullet train
Let's all go to Hades, just the same
Let's all go to paradise on a supersonic jet
Let's all go to paradise, not yet


7. Come Heavy


I like the feeling of the morning sun
I like the rain on my face in the fall
I come heavy not to be outdone
Come on heavy or don't come at all

I like the scent of a woman's hair
And the way on her shoulder it falls
I come heavy because life ain't fair
I come heavy or I don't come at all

Get your ticket, don't be late
To the great psychotic ball
Don't you stick it, get it straight
Or don't come at all

I like the beauty of a fresh red rose
And a sip of the fine alcohol
I come heavy from my head to toes
I come heavy like a wrecking ball

All God's angels, give you pain
All my madness, know my name

We made our choices then a steady pulse or fast
You took the higher road, I took the psychopath
The age of old question persecutes the good in me
And my relief comes in what will be, will be

Give me all your money, 'til my cup overflow
My mouth is full of honey, my shirt is soaked in
Bordeaux


8. Red White And Blue


I'm part of the plan, a real live wire
I'm part of the plan and part of the electric corps
Born to die, not to lose
There's a light in the eye, it reflects fire
It has the right to apply what's needed, hearts to soar
Don't mean to imply the light is higher
Nor mean to imply we can be answered for

Another down, another death on you
Others that ignore your hate, dong what they do
Another clown leads the band of fools
Another broken hear, bleeds red, white and blue

I'm part of the plan, a real live wire
I'm part of the plan and part electric sun
Born to die, not to lose
I'm lost in the gone and taking fire
I'm waiting for the dawn these colors just won't run
In honor's embrace they do aspire
In honor's embrace no harder nor undone

And who'll be the first man to stand in the dark of the night
And who is the last of the last men to make it all right, damn right
A complicated problem and the question is the answer
You can give me liberty or I can give you death
Damn right
And if this man falls who will carry this flag to the fight
And if this man falls who will carry him out of his night, damn right
It's a simple answer to the brotherhood in blood
You can give us liberty or we can give you death
Damn right, you can give us liberty or we can give you death


9. The Wheel


I got a real bad feeling about where you're coming form
I got a real good sense of evil and it tells me you're the one
And I'd love to sit and have a drink to feel
And I'd love to quit the war and think, but I must grease the wheel

I don't meet what's called you kind everyday
I have sun across the universe, on the funeral highway
And I love to sit, to lick my wounds and heal
Or soar around the blue moon, but I must fix the wheel

I am the wheel, a turbine that is spinning the in night, and I'm all right
Of stone and steel, yes a reflection what you think about me
Yes but can you live without me, yes I feel, I am the wheel

Turn like a spinning top, burn and you never stop, I got the fever and the feel for the wheel
Here comes Mr. Wonderful, with his new magnetic deal
There goes Mr. Kiss My Ass with everything he steals
Turn like a spinning top, burn and you never stop, I got a feel for the wheel

I'd love to sit to have a drink to feel
And I'd love to quit this war and think, but I must grease the wheel
And I love to sit, to lick my wounds and heal
Or soar around the blue moon, but I must fix the wheel


10. The Grinding Wheel


A bed of nails, cold dark deep refrigeration
A hear it calling me
A broken rail as he drools over the congregation
I hear it calling me
Now I won't tell you how to live your life
I never saw the point in thinking twice
I turn the wheel by day, by night
Praise your flag
Here's to the liberation

Day by day I move in time
Turn the wheel, pay for my crimes

The miller's horse is wearing down
He bangs his heart on hollowed ground
The miller hears a single sound
The sound of the grinding wheel goes round and round

The ship has sailed to dark sea destinations
The gods are hailed for their absentee observations
I feel it holding me
Now I can't tell you where integrity hides
It showed it's face, you struck it down and it died
I turn my wheel with a seamless pride
Raise your flag
Here's to the revolution
The pain is all you ever feel
A concrete will, and a back of steel
I give you my soul unto the wheel
Get it done

Eye of the needle, it in the hear of the sun
Stuck in the middle, with the blazing one
This weathered hand, has a grip of steel
These eyes have seen it all; catch your spirit on the grinding wheel
Say your prayers, say what you feel
Count your blessings, make a deal
What you borrow, what you steal
Crush it all, on the grinding wheel
