Machine Head In The Presence Of My Enemies

I never ask myself why injustice befell me

Accepted of the fact, try and live a life of peace

I’m not a violent man, but to those who’d threaten me

My enemy, for my family I’ll show thee

Death I will fight you to

Wrath provoked you cannot bear

Our lives are not your toys

Mercy, not a drop to spare

You of destruction

Of hope’s deconstruction

Kills

Innocence is lost when

The blood of innocents

Spills

I’m not a violent man, again I wish to repeat

But for every human that takes away a child’s innocence

Whether it by molest, or by all wars pointlessness

Killer of life

Corruptor of all that is pure

I want your nose to break

Shattered under clenched fist

Smash face to concrete

Taste the asphalt’s gentle kiss

You of destruction

Of hope’s deconstruction

Kills

Innocence is lost when

The blood of innocents

Spills

[Solo: Demmel]

To those that are to blame

Destroyers of every dream

Breaking of hatred’s wings

Mars’ phoenix begins fading

To those that monger war

Claiming that this is to even scores

This mantra I invoke

No longer this fear will

I choke

There’s no peace for the one who can’t know peace

Your every breath it only lives to take

Someday the earth you will descend

Not a regret I’ll harbor in

Tearless my eyes

Flowerless my hands

And that day when your moment is fleeting

That thought keeps my heart beating

When they lower your casket down

Bitter the sweet within my mouth

Ender of life

Corruptor of all that’s pure

On Your Grave

I Will Stand

Machine Head The Blood, The Sweat, The Tears

Oh yes i walk the path, that righteous

Many men have walked before

In this pain cell

The broken shell

Straight shackled onto the floor

So welcome to the world

That i lived in

Puking up bile and hate

My world entered

A false enclosure

Sickening broken state

But then I see

These things in me

That make me want it

More than you

Want to deny your flesh

Cause pain’s my wish

Get wasted on self destruct

So hold on to the end

It’s all about

The blood, the sweat, the tears

Attribute to the strength

Built through the years

[2X]

Yes i walk the path

That gives me

Confidence strong and pure

Now i realize

That freedom rises

From confronting the source

I built these walls around me

And i can break them all away

And I’ll focus all the strength

I call unstoppable energy

So hold on to the end

It’s all about

The blood, the sweat, the tears

Attribute to the strength

Built through the years

[2X]

Hold on

I’m falling

I’m falling down again too

It’s all about

The blood, the sweat, the tears

Attribute to the strength

Built through the years

I’ve been there

Cause I once hit a wall

Cause I once hit a wall

Cause I once hit a wall

Machine Head A Farewell To Arms

[Music: Flynn / Demmel, Lyrics: Flynn / Duce / Demmel]

Can you hear their cries?

Nowhere can the children run to hide

Crimson rivers

Flow down the hills

Atone our ills

And woe to all her songs of love

A farewell to arms

Mutilated lives

Blackening as coffin line the sides

Filled with fathers

Who has won?

When only sons

Hold their grieving heads and mourn

A farewell to arms

Always our souls entwine

Erase this vast divide

Deaf ears our voices rest

Tyrant, this is protest

Who has won?

Yes, who has won?

[Chorus:]

I’ll wave this flag of white

So the venged see the light

We’ll pay for closed eyes

With our genocide

Piercing the masquerade

March to the death parade

Trade no humanity

For pearls of the slavery

In the depth of mind the heart will I find

The truth of our leader

We’ll try the facts so through the cracks

May fall the lying cheater

Who has won when we’re all dead?

[Chorus]

So is this how we live?

Or is this how we die?

Black blood dripping from platinum fangs

Rich blood flees while

Our poverty hangs

Shepherds they herd the mindless trance

As the flock follows the puppet’s dance

In a fatal romance

[Solo: Demmel]

All that they needed was

A pretext, war’s next

Heads to the chopping blocks

And our necks are next

For those we died

Who fought for our rights

Whose children now slaves

They’re turning in their graves

War hawks and senators

They sit tight, so trite

Never their sons will know

What it’s like to fight

But soldiers are dead

And children have bled

And the silence is numb

What have we become?

God save us

A farewell to Arms

Machine Head Beyond The Pale

Come on!

I am skin and bones, broken stones,

See the scars that I show.

I live outside the bounds, in the unknown.

I can’t ingratiate to the hate,

‘Cause their world suffocates.

Karma – your path is formed by destiny’s shape

(This storm won’t wait…)

The rain is falling down upon me..

Beyond the pale,

I found salvation, emancipation.

Beyond the pale,

I found my heroes: the freaks and zeroes.

I live outside the lines, got no time

For the willfully blind.

I’ll build a world of mine, sever the ties.

I’ll break down every wall, fight and claw.

Take their punches, stand tall,

My middle finger raised, so fuck ’em all

(And let them crawl…)

The rain is falling down upon me…

Beyond the pale,

I found salvation, emancipation.

Beyond the pale,

I found my heroes: the freaks and zeroes.

The snakes come slithering out their holes at night..

Dirty water clouds my soul, the needle lies…

Weather the storm, my heart is pounding…

The rain is falling down upon me..

Beyond the pale,

I found salvation, emancipation.

Beyond the pale,

I found my heroes: the freaks and zeroes..

Beyond the pale…

Beyond the pale…

Beyond the pale…

Beyond the pale.

Machine Head None But My Own

I am only nothing, I am only this

I am just a man with these two fists

You have asked forgiveness

You have asked respect

Only something that you did forget

All you gave you had planned to take

Beat upon me but I won’t break

Stripping everything from me? No!

Will to me your anger, will to me your rage

Will to me your lies, your sufferings

Not a man of virtue, not even a man

Will not take the hate dealt from your hands

Years of pain I will take and hone

Manifest with your broken bones

My heart bleeds for none but my own

My own

Burn

Burn

I am only nothing, I am only this

I am just a man with these two fists

Not a man of virtue, not even a man

Will not take the hate dealt from your hands

Years of pain I will take and hone

Manifest with your broken bones

My heart bleeds for none but my own

My own

Burn

Burn

My heart bleeds for none but my own…

Machine Head Nausea

One more time you’ve

gotten into my head

I’ve let your words get

into me

Every time I try to talk,

you never listen

You got the answers,

I don’t know a thing

But you ask me what these

lights are in my eyes

They’re a freight train

ahead

And they’re straight

coming your way

You’ve tied yourself down

to the tracks

Now you want help from me

to cut you free

If it was me

my hour of need

You’d leave me there to

bleed

I’m fucking sick of you

and all that shit you’re

pulling

Your fuckin’ attitude

had better go on

You cheat and you lie

and you stole and denied

And you turned on your

friends

when you burned all those

bridges

This time you won’t be

getting under my skin

What you had I’ve taken

away

Tell me what you’re gonna

do, it doesn’t matter

You’re always talking, it

don’t mean a thing

So ask me what these

lights are in my eyes

They’re a freight train

ahead

And they’re straight

coming your way

You’ve tied yourself down

to the tracks

Now you want help from me

to cut you free

If it was me

my hour of need

You’d leave me there to

bleed

I’m fucking sick of you

and all that shit you’re

pulling

Your fuckin’ attitude

had better go on

You cheat and you lie

and you stole and denied

And you turned on your

friends

when you burned all those

bridges

Well you sat there and

cried

As these words came to

glide

through your delicate skin

leaving blood on these

pages

So how does it feel

to be at one with the fate I

seal

They’re a freight train

ahead

And they’re straight

coming your way

You’ve tied yourself down

to the tracks

Now you want help from

me to cut you free

If it was me

my hour of need

You’d leave me there

to bleed

I’m fucking sick of you

and all that shit you’re

pulling

Your fuckin’ attitude

had better go on

You cheat and you lie

and you stole and denied

And you turned on your

friends

when you burned all those

bridges.

Machine Head Screaming At The Sun

You’ll find me screaming at the sun

It singes my eyes

The plan I devise, in this chess game to shatter the crook

And now the queen takes the rook

You think that you can read me like a book

But you mistook the pushback, skull crack, now I take the pawn

The pattern’s sliding off and now the bishop’s gone

Woe this land

It bares my hand

Of the final command

They see you blinded us, reminded us of all that’s ugly

And if you let it in, the predator will leave you bloody

So take a look into my eyes

And sharpen your gaze

Sharpen the blades ’cause the stakes have been raised

Kiss the ring

And now the knight takes the king

Now the rank and file is to bring

The sacrificing, upside, downside, give me all your guns

I’m fucking crazy, oh my mind is lost or won?

Hold your breath

These wounds are fresh

Of this mate that I check

They see you blinded us, reminded us of all that’s ugly

And if you let it in, the predator will leave you bloody

So we close

Off the din outside the window

No we won’t

Normalize the tyrannizing

You’ll find me screaming at the sun

Until my soul dies

You’ll find me screaming now

They see you blinded us, reminded us of all that’s ugly

Machine Head Beautiful Mourning

[Music: Flynn / Demmel, Lyrics: Flynn]

Fuck you all!

My redemption is knowing

This will be over

My aggression, I fear I’ve lost control

Who is this man I stare?

Mirror reflects a stranger

Fist shatters the despair

Awake the pain to anger

[Chorus:]

How do I close thine eyes of murder?

How do I close thine eyes of murder?

Staring into me?

My obsession is dying, sinking me deeper

My depression, this world has disavowed

Razor at wrist I seethe

The flesh is peeled apart now

Gone is my faded dream

Failure, I welcome in thou

[Chorus]

This lifetime in sorrow

God let the angels die

This is our last goodbye

In love and death we cry

Our last goodbye

[Solo: Flynn]

No, no, no, no

Spit in the face of loss

Coward, my own self-hatred

No more I bear this cross

Struggle, and rise from the dead

This lifetime in sorrow

God let the angels die

This is our last goodbye

In love and death we cry

Machine Head All Fall Down

Anticipating, salivating, intoxicating

How I’ve been waiting

To gently soak in

Your dream that’s broken

Caress my hands

Around your throat

When I choke the last gasp of air out of you

I’ll mesmerize you, hypnotize you

Paralyze you, my snake eyes blind you

My tenderest tickle, my gentlest prickle

The back of your neck

I stab icicles

My sweetest grin will pull you in

Behind that grin a razor teeth smile

Under your bed

Inside your head

I am the monster in wait

Walk, run

I’m the fear you’ve become

Pray, hope

Before it’s your

Downfall, and all falls down

I patronize you, victimize you

My false pretenses endear me to you

I’m psychopathic, psychosomatic

Believe everything you’ve heard about me

Ate you alive since you were a child

That’s when the monster first appeared to you

So know my name

What is my name?

My name is fear and I’m you

Walk, run

I’m the fear you’ve become

Pray, hope

Before it’s your

Downfall, and all falls down

With faith I crawl

In sadness, I fear what I’ve become

‘Cause after all

I’m acting, pretend my smile on

Before the fall

The pain washes over

Hold on, hold on

Survive

Survive

This

Walk, run

Free the fear you’ve become

Fight back

Before it’s your

Downfall, and all falls down
