Track Name: Birth (of a Monster)
I am here
Track Name: Monster
Dark and dingy, the womb of a whore
Maggots and worms litter her floor
A lab of torture and intoxication
The place of creation of the abomination

The sinister plot begins to unfold
Chip away the flesh to devour the soul
The heart is blackened, the blood is tainted
The perfect slave is instantiated

Pre-chorus:
Snakes and snails and puppy dog tails
That’s what little boys are made of
Sugar and spice and everything nice
Beat the bastard into compliance

Chorus:
I am a hater, controlled by anger
I cannot forgive and I cannot forget
I am in a rage, breaking from my cage
I am the monster you created

Shriveled and shaking, shackled to the corner
Spoon fed carcinogen, the eyes tell the horror
Voodoo child needs to be clean
Wash the away sins with gasoline

The plan of action is nearly complete
Dance on innocence, triumphant defeat
Subversion of the dirty prodigy
No strength or voice left to beg for mercy

Pre-chorus
Chorus

Cauterize, lobotomize
Surgical perfection behavioral correction
Scar the truth in my eyes
Serialize, sterilize
Pathetic and neutered, the scapegoat will go on to torture and terrorize

I am nobody, I am no one

Chorus

I am nobody, I am no one
Track Name: Contact
A universal bond unique and true
A transcending network connecting us to you
Calling out to you, trying to get through
Deliver the message from us to you

Pre-chorus:
Reach out across space and time
Point to point read the signs
Zero in on your location
Sonic signal from the station

Chorus:
We are the preacher, you’re the believer
Music is the common ground that we share
We're the transmitter, you’re the receiver
Available to you anytime and anywhere

A constant flow of data across the broadcast
Traveling at the speed of sound in motion
Existing apart, yet still connected
Bridging over the digital ocean

Pre-chorus
Chorus
Chorus
Track Name: Confession
I have a secret, something to tell
It’s been on my mind and I know it so well
I consider the thought of letting it bleed
From the place in me where darkness seeds

Chorus:
Can you see what lies?
Behind the stare of my eyes
Can you see what hides?
Obscured by flesh and locked inside

I turn out the lights so you can't see in
You listen for clues but the walls aren't thin
Desperate to uncover the things that I know
Is that you that’s looking through my window?

Chorus

That which I know has become your obsession
Talking circles trying to form the question
Watching and examining my expression
Waiting for the words that are my confession

Chorus
Track Name: Invincible
I clear my mind and cut through the clouds
Traveling at the speed of sound
Climbing high like a bird in the sky
The force of gravity I resist and defy

Pre-chorus:
Hold on tight, here I go
The ground disappears below
Man in flight, amazing how
No one can touch me now

Chorus:
Fly high, soar the sky
I am invincible

Metallic bird made of steel
Intense altitude is my ideal
The sunlight reflects off the wings
The engine thrust drives the upswing

Pre-chorus
Chorus

Pre-chorus
Chorus
Track Name: King of my World
I am the man, I do just what I want to do
Living for today, ignoring all your rules
The streets are my paradise, Heaven in the midst
Life revolves around me, you don't exist

Chorus:
Take a step inside my shoes and see what I see
This is what I see, king of my world

Going nowhere fast, got nothing to do
No basis for my thought, lacking any clue
Doing as I please, playing a fool
Total independence, irrelevant to you

Chorus

This is what I see, in my world
This is what I see, in my kingdom

Answering to no one, it’s all about me
Like looking in the mirror, all I see is me
I do as I please, my concern is untrue
I am all that matters, there’s no room for you

Chorus
Track Name: The One You Love
Here I stand without you
Wrapped in fear, torn in two
My heart sinks to the floor
I can't take anymore
Pre-chorus:
The choices you made dug our grave
Could it be too late for us to save
Watching the dirt fall in from above
You only hurt the one that you love

Chorus:
Now that your gone
Do I pick up the pieces or run?
Cuz I cannot hide from the pain inside
Are we done? I can't decide

I'm alone without you
I feel undone and blue
The emptiness in my life
Overwhelms my sight

Pre-chorus
Chorus

We had it all; was it not enough?
Is it me, is it you? What didn't we do?
Do we have hope? Can love conquer all?
Can we survive what we are going through?

Chorus
Track Name: Standalone
Profile of the wrong man, welcome to the game
Actors are the criminals, the street is the stage
A twisted world where cops hunt the decoy team
And the villains live the American dream

Chorus:
Word, Rap, Fall
Millions of dollars and you can have it all
Word, Rap, Fall
Choose to standalone, divided they fall

The simplest of systems, an underground network
Clients have the cash, wrong men have the turf
It’s time for a show - signature weapon or fist
Stun gun, brass knuckles or chains; turn this disco into a pit

Chorus

Oh my God, what have I done
This is not what I wanted, not what I thought it would be
I want my life when it was mine
I don't want to be a wrong man
A slave to the client's hand
I don't want to be a wrong man
A slave to the client's hand

Chorus
Track Name: Three
All eyes upon us as we walk into the club
I take the lead to stop at the bar and medicate
They’re playing our song, run, don't walk to the dance floor
So move with me, groove with me, feels so good it must be fate

Chorus:
Everywhere I look
I see millions of girls
But they can't replace
The center of my world
Hand in hand we spin around

Where has the time gone? Always goes too damn fast
1, 2, 3, 4 dancing away the night at Three
How cool is that? As a matter of fact
I can't think of another place I'd rather be

Chorus

Tracing your eyes and your lips, emotion overflows
They don't walk like you or talk like you
I can't let you go

Chorus
Track Name: Kill Site
A slave to the system, a pawn in the game
A puppet for the one who has no name
Pedal and push the drugs that make me rich
When you fall to the cops I don't exist

Pre-chorus:
Follow the plan, do as your told
No way out, your bought and sold
Nowhere to run, it’s as you fear
Cross the system and you'll disappear

Chorus:
I am your nightmare
I can make you disappear
The judge, the jury
I'm the executioner

Dump the surveillance, leave it on the street
Draw the heat away before we meet
Know the locations and the routines
These are the places you shouldn't be

Pre-chorus
Chorus

The victims are random, they pay the price
No one can hear them, taken out of the way
The kill site is never the same place twice
Move the body to a different place to decay

Chorus
Track Name: F.I.S.T.
I play the game that drives me insane
Adrenaline rush on my brain
I got the focus and the attitude
Do or die, I've got no time to loose

Pre-chorus:
This time it’s for real
I stand to face the challenge
Clenching fate in my fist
Victory will be mine in the end

Chorus:
F.I.S.T.
Survival of the fittest
F.I.S.T.
Curl my fingers to a fist

I bring it and throw it down
Is that your ass on the ground?
In the zone and full of Zen
You gonna get up and try again?

Pre-chorus
Chorus

I'm on fire
It’s come down to the wire
I feel the hesitation
I sense the tension
I see the opposition
Now begin my demolition

I unleash the beast onto the street
King of the mountain, the one to beat
Out for blood and going for the kill
Unstoppable and iron will

Pre-chorus
Chorus
Track Name: Pieces of Eight
All aboard the man-of-war
Scurvy dog leave ye mistress ashore
Gunners and monkeys, all hands on deck
Land lubber dare ye join us and challenge death

Pre-chorus:
The scourge of the seven seas
Making legends and history
Pillage, plunder and rape
Feed the hunger of me mates

Chorus:
Dead men tell no tales
Death before surrender

Me only true love be the sea
Running rum and gold league after league
Over the home of mermaids and whales
The breath of God be the wind in our sails

Pre-chorus
Chorus

No prey no pay, you'll get your weight in gold
Pieces of eight, from the treasure we stole
Attempt mutiny and walk the plank
To Davey Jones Locker ye shall sink
Chorus
Track Name: Sharp Dressed Man (ZZ Top cover)
Clean shirt, new shoes
And I don't know where I am goin' to.
Silk suit, black tie,
I don't need a reason why.

They come runnin' just as fast as they can
'Cause every girl crazy 'bout a sharp dressed man.

Gold watch, diamond ring,
I ain't missin' not a single thing.
And cuff links, stick pin,
When I step out I'm gonna do you in.

They come runnin' just as fast as they can
'Cause every girl crazy 'bout a sharp dressed man.

Top coat, top hat,
I don't worry 'cause my wallet's fat.
Black shades, white gloves,
Lookin' sharp and lookin' for love.

They come runnin' just as fast as they can
'Cause every girl crazy 'bout a sharp dressed man.
