Machine Head White-Knuckle Blackout!

Veins are a racetrack for fuel that I need

Life on the edge is the bread which I feed

Standing alone, open for all to see

My tunnel vision for life, it drives me

Focus in closer

Releasing the fear

White – knuckle blackout, adrenaline rush

Wide-eyed and red-faces, my skin hot and flushed

The hair stands up down the backside of my neck

Blood’s beginning to boil the beads of sweat

Fear has its place in the scars that I bear

Deep in the mine, behind everything shared

Fixate my sickness as long as there’s air

Headstrong I’ll forcibly change what was there

By focusing closer

Releasing the fear

White – knuckle blackout, adrenaline rush

Wide-eyed and red-faces, my skin hot and flushed

The hair stands up down the backside of my neck

Blood’s beginning to boil

These beads of sweat I’ll dry, out of my eyes

And blacken everything except the goal out

Adrenaline is my fuel when I’ve obstacle to climb

Adrenaline is the lubrication , focusing my mind

Adrenaline is telling me when someone’s thinking they’re too cool

To raise my middle fingers up and say “fuck you”

Adrenaline is fueling my mint to focus my climb

Reaction evoked at the challenge provoked out of you

Adrenaline is fire to fuel

You wanna fire my fuel?

I’ll fire back a fuck you!

Machine Head Eulogy

The strands of memories spread like webs of cold

Along my skin I feel the frost taking its hold

Burning up, my insides start to freeze

Cannibalistic past, thoughts rife with disease

Come and set me free

Stand my ground

Won’t let the bastards grind me down

I’m bold, I’m strange

Won’t let their fears make me afraid

There’s hope, we’ll change

Spiders crawl across my scars at night

Picking at the scabs of regrets in my life

The darkness whispers madness as she calls my name

Murky faded like a fog of acid rain

Wash away the pain

I’ll stand my ground

Won’t let the bastards grind me down

I’m bold, I’m strange

Won’t let their fears make me afraid

There’s hope, we’ll change

The pain goes on and on under a crushing weight

Sweating and paralyzed upon the bed of my own hate

The night is never ending as I struggle for control

Where will I find the peace of sleep inside this hole?

I’ll stand my ground

Won’t let the bastards grind me down

I’m bold, I’m strange

Won’t let their fears make me afraid

There’s hope, we’ll change

We’ll change

Machine Head Desire To Fire

Fuck this place up

We turn desire to fire

electric spark to the wire

highered the stakes when we brought

this monster life

prevail by daring to fail

others content just to sail

hail the future we bring

we bring chaos to blocks

like riots to watts

blow up spots, taking the crown

off the top notch

create the pace

that you all will follow

sporadic flow buckles up

like a calico

We D-O smoke sensmilla

vodka and C-O-K-E

is the real deal

you flubber, never had to suffer

life’s getting hard

and it’s only get rougher

save some for me

cant stop what were going to be

[Chorus:]

walk with me

and take this seed

a fire for you

so dare to fail

will you

when my pen hits pad

it results in catastrophe

words and verbs come

to form your disaster

if you want it, you got it

never hit I spot it

now come and watch me rise

on the tools, I blew

more money than Latrell

think I know you too well

you fell and stumbled

laughing as you tumble

I guess you forgot

about the power we rock

come “ALL HAIL THE”

Machine Head battery

the good, the bad, the ugly

damaging capacity

yeah you been fucked

stuck in a rut

your life has been sucked

your tail has been tucked

save some for me

can’t stop what were going to be

just watch as as i demonstrate

the reason we dominate

[chorus]

If we stand alone

and believe in whole

and you tell me

it’s all I believe in

yes we stand alone

and believe in whole

if you tell me

it’s all we believe in

because we

we’ll chew and spit you out

and pray upon the weaker

take what we want

[chorus]

Machine Head Trephination

I used to want to take a

drill to my head

Let the pain out of the hole

I used to want to cut the

veins in my neck

Cool the blood boiling my

soul

When I wondered, why my

daily headaches thundered

Tried to buffer, pushing

down the pain I suffered

Mutilated, feeling so

humiliated

Cannot wash the dirt off

underneath my skin

There was a part of me left

far behind

When at the age of five

years old

I had my innocence taken

from me

Emptiness would fill the

hole

Now a second grader,

thinking why I don’t feel

better

Why I’m filthy, why the hell

I feel so guilty

When drawing stick men

of pornographic men and

women

Thinking all the time

there’s something wrong

with me

Everyday for three years

from dawn ’til dusk a

migraine

would take me and break me

And it’d cripple me so

much that

In dreams, it’d seem, with

a hole in my temple

that I could probably make

my headaches finally go

away

Trephination

Trephination

The enemy inside of me

won’t let me free

wants me to bleed

And after three years now

my headaches wear off

For reasons not quite to

me known

The acupuncture needles

sticking my skin

Pushed them down as far

as they’d go

But now I’m older and now

inside my anger smolders

from depression, to fighting

Taking out my vengeance

Consequences, now I’d

question during sex if …

Is this how it fucking feels

or am I faking it ?

No longer the child that

you left there at the bart

tracks

I’m now at 17, left in an

empty blackness

On drugs, with thugs, and

thinking “Goddamn ?”

I’m ending up in a failure,

in the gutter passed out

Trephination

Trephination

This enemy inside of me

won’t let me free

wants me to bleed

Now I’m older and in this

man an anger smolders

Now I’m thinking a hole in

you is what I’m seeing

Your depression, is the

dent I kick in you in

vengeance

Consequences are the pain

I’d give to you

I know that I’m dreaming,

but in this dream I go in

go through it, and end it

And though I’d never do it

I’m killing you, hand on

the trigger – pull it

Your final thought’ll be a

bullet in your fuckin’ head

Trephination

Trephination

This enemy inside of me

I’m now killing

to make me free.

Machine Head Blistering

you stabbed me in the back over a sliver

a feeling i have been betrayed

both hands broken together

clenching fists cause the rage

[chorus:]

it comes in spades

from a life of pain

i don’t care ’cause i don’t give a fuck

it tears a path right through me

a systematic vision of survival

a struggle i alone engage

tension burning inside me

blood so sweet cause revenge

[chorus]

revenge i mine

suffering divine

fractures break through bone

frustrating won’t let go

filled with lead and dumped into the river

and burned in a shallow grave

both hands broken together

clenching fists cause the rage

Machine Head Bay Of Pigs

i gotta rise, i’m sick of your lies

and i won’t be your scapegoat now

ain’t gonna bend and won’t ’til the end

understalnd on my word i vow

a pig, a pig, that’s all you’ll ever be

refuse to cower to the swine

i’m sick of it, at the end of my wits

the next time that you fuck with mine

i’m gonna snap like i never have before

[chorus:]

your law’s the flow

upon this nation

your lies despised

by generations

i got a friend might not walk again

and your laws never helped at all

go fuck your clause, your probable cause

power trippin’ above us tall

afraid, afraid and so you better be

’cause when i call you’re not around

serve and protect and give some respect

’cause next time that you shake me down

i’m gonna snap like i never have before

[chorus:]

your lies despised

your law’s the flaw

upon this nation

upon this nation

upon this nation

your lies despised

by generations

Machine Head The Rage To Overcome

This world does not want me

This world does not care

And I am a product of this world

Confused, I’d say that’s fair

This pain will never leave me

It’s scared upon my brain

Destroying everything that brought this

Just to keep me, just to keep me sane

A hatred burns inside me

Emotion out of hand

But I’ve the will to focus this

Survive, contrive, command

From pain come a courage

The strength from injustice

The rage to overcome it all

An open mind

With a closed fist

Machine Head Elegy

Elegies are to be sung

Winds of armageddon come

Ignorance within your bliss

Soon you will atone for this

In your carcinogenic haze

Baneful of a newer age

Flower of a different scent

Poisons of the earths lament

A requiem

Earth belong not to you

Belong all we to her

Take another deeper breath

Inhale invisible death

Pollution fills the land and sky

Forever you justify

Take a deeper look and see

Nothing’s left to future seeds

Icicles melt into blood

Ashes where there once was wood

A requiem

Earth belong not to you

Belong all we to her

Pain of life has pulled you under

Left you there to bleed and wonder

Open heart left torn asunder

Wrong the wrongs that you’ve been suffered

Kill we scream in roaring thunder

Destroy all, leave all things plundered

Acid rain cries her pain

Full bloom, a world gone insane

Her anger the flower

Plays God with all of our lives

A requiem

Earth belong not to you

Belong all we to her

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
