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

Machine Head Game Over

Oh your sweet little lies

Oh your sweet little lies

I can hear when I hold you close to me

When I look in your eyes

I see through your disguise

What I see is an only lonely void

And I can see hell in your eyes

Cause you’re drowning inside

Those fake tears that you cried

As I claw my way from your tragedy

Emptiness is your bride

Arrogance is your pride

I won’t drown in another’s misery

And you won’t pull me down to die

No!

Stuck in this prison with a brother I loved

Stuck in this prison with the memories of…

Another time, when music’s all that we had

Bonded by anger and addictions, so glad

Always together but no words are spoken

This is the sound of a friendship broken

Trapped and climbing up the walls

How the fuck do I get out of these pitfalls?

And you say that life is just a game and

Everyone who plays is just a pawn

And shame on me it went so long

How could I’ve been so wrong?

I’ve forever gone, colder

If life is just a game then

Game over

Dreaming of choking someone I used to know

Strangling the negativity that they sow

Resent has now become the face in the mask

That plays upon a bitter two-man cast

Go find somebody else to blame your problems

Trying to fuck me, because you can’t solve them

Stop! You never gave a shit

We almost fucking quit, because how much you hated it

You say that life is just a game and

Everyone who plays is just a pawn

And shame on me it went so long

How could I’ve been so wrong?

I’ve forever gone, colder

If life is just a game then

Game over

For as long as you’re alive

I’ll curse your worthless name

On the day

On the day of your demise

Unburied and left for the flies

Believe me that I will piss upon your grave

Forgiveness will greet me on someday

But I’ll never forget all this pain

Let there be no mistake

This is not a game!

Oh your sweet little lies

Oh your sweet little lies

I can hear when I hold you close to me

When I look in your eyes

I see through your disguise

What I see is an only lonely void

Cause you’re drowning inside

Those fake tears that you cried

As I claw my way from your tragedy

Emptiness is your bride

Arrogance is your pride

I won’t drown in another’s misery

Forever this friendship has died

No!

And you say that life is just a game and

Everyone who plays is just a pawn

And shame on me it went so long

How could I’ve been so wrong?

I’ve forever gone, colder

If life is just a game then

Game over

Game over

(Game over)

Machine Head Night Of Long Knives

You won’t see us come

You won’t see us come

You won’t see us come

You won’t see us come

You won’t see us come

In the night

With these knives

And these bloodstains on our hands

And these bloodstains on our hands

Paint the walls

Taste the blade

On the night of long knives

Midnight we KILL

In summer of ’69, there came a prophet

His words were used to propel the minds of the weak

He sprawled them balls deep within the desert

His followers into the belly of the beast

Don’t look into his eyes

Buried with knowledge past the point of no return

The pride of the work he’d done

The family all the dreams they could

The prophecy of Charles Manson and what had been done in the hills

Of Hollywood tonight

Sing of the angels

Sanity deprived

The family fatal

They bring the night of long knives

Deserts and the devil

Rapist of mind

The family fatal

Pitch black

You won’t see us come

In the night

With these knives

And these bloodstains on our hands

Paint the walls

Taste the blade

On the night of long knives

Midnight we kill

The hills were echoing with their laughter

Happily ever after was a faded memory

Rosemary and the baby of Polanski

6 people dead and bloody

In the hills of family

Now screaming for their lives

Praying and pleading for lives of babies unborn

The spawn of hell they just begin

The horror of the splitting skin

Noose tied around their necks

To beat their dying breaths

In the hills

Of Hollywood tonight

Sing of the angels

Sanity deprived

The family fatal

They bring the night of long knives

Deserts and the devil

Rapist of mind

The family fatal

They bring the night of long knives

We have been so wrong

We will fall

We will fall

No tomorrow

We’ll fall away tonight

Don’t look into his eyes

Buried with knowledge past the point of no return

The pride of the work he’d done

The family all the dreams they could

The prophecy of Charles Manson and what had been done in the hills

Of Hollywood tonight

Sing of the angels

Sanity deprived

The family fatal

They bring the night of long knives

They bring the night of long knives

Deserts and the devil

Rapist of mind

The family fatal

They bring the night of long knives

You won’t see us come

In the night

With these knives

And these bloodstains on our hands

And these bloodstains on our hands

Paint the walls

Taste the blade

On the night of long knives

You won’t see us come

In the night

With these knives

On the night of long knives

Machine Head Death Church

Well I look at justice in a different light

I been to jail, it didn’t make me right

Try and conform, but won’t be deaf, blind, dumb

Been beaten down, just harder I’ve become

[Chorus:]

Death church rising

Hate church rising

Lost church rising

Death church rising

Hey Jesus can’t you help me with my pain

Mainline me some religion, keep me sane

Christ suffering upon my TV screen

Send in your money to the faith obscene

[Chorus]

Strength, truth and honor, words I strive to live

Your faith’s profane, it takes, never gives

‘Cause I’m gonna die standing upon my feet

You’re gonna die groveling on your knees

[Chorus]

Machine Head House Of Suffering

In this house of suffering

I gotta let some joy in

I hear that freedom will win

Oh where, oh where can jah love

Be now

My dear, it’s here in the underground

Inside the hearts of your own children

In this house of suffering

I spiritualogic grin,

In one way grace is my friend

To conquer doom and sin

And all the nations lying

While all our people crying

And they stop at

Nothing!…nothing!…nothing!

In this house of suffering

Don’t want but just one thing

Got to have my origin

In this house of

Suffering

Machine Head Hole In The Sky

I’m looking through a hole in the sky

I’m seeing nowhere through the eyes of a lie

I’m getting closer to the end of the line

I’m living easy where the sun doesn’t shine

I’m living in a room without any view

I’m living free because the rent’s never due

The synonyms of all the things that I’ve said

Are just the riddles that are built in my head

Hole in the sky, take me to heaven

Window in time, through it I fly

I’ve seen the stars disappear in the sun

The shooting’s easy if you’ve got the right gun

And even though I’m sitting waiting for mars

I don’t believe there’s any future in cause

Hole in the sky, take me to heaven

Window in time, through it I fly

Yeah

I’ve watched the dogs of war enjoying their feast

I’ve seen the western world go down in the east

The food of love became the greed of our time

But now I’m living on the profits of pride

Machine Head Alcoholocaust

As I fall, over and over

Drunken through vodka

As I fall, over and over

Drunken through vodka and cola

Shard’s of glass burning the back of my head

As I turn red all out war

Each one get on the floor

Red so hot follow the middle son

Concrete jump

Makes a boy look like a drunken grass

Every time I cross the line

I go, just leave me alone, I’ll get by on my own

This whole world is ours so let’s take it

Scrape the plate, trust you a little bit

Face so fucked

Scrape the plate, trust you a little bit

Face so fucked, blow out your leg, yeah

Spinning lies, make the man feel like

He can’t meet a superstar

Take a hit, let the burn flow over you

Flow excel, expand inside of you

Cut your throat, that’ll be crazy now

Ha, ha

Every time I cross the line

I go, just leave me alone, I’ll get by on my own

This whole world is ours, so let’s take it

Every time I cross the line

I push the boundaries out a little

Go, just leave me alone

(Every time I cross the line)

I’ll get by on my own

(I push the boundaries out a little)

This whole world is ours, so let’s take it

Machine Head Nothing Left

Withered away I see it

Every day complacent

Desecrates the fabric of lies

Emptiness fills inside me

Bitterness has denied me

Faith that this world

Could every really give a shit

When I feel it

Come falling

I turn you away

I am the things that you fear

My leap of faith without a sound

Don’t push my back against the wall

Yes I have strength will never fall

Withered inside

This soul has petrified

As concrete fills the skies

This life is disarray

Consequence every action

Brings violence from the passions

Loneliness the emotion

Buried inside

When I feel it

Come falling

I turn you away

I am the things that you fear

My leap of faith without a sound

Don’t push my back against the wall

Yes I have strength will never fall

I feel around the falling sun

For so long I fade away..away

For years to now been holdin’ on

For so long I fade away.. away

I have nothing left for nobody else

I have nothing left for nobody

Feel it

Come falling

I turn you away

I am the things that you fear

My leap of faith without a sound

Don’t push my back against the wall

Yes I have strength will never fall
