Track Name: Pedal To The Devil
Free at last You're on your own
and ready to live again
700lbs of screaming chrome
Wreathed in crimson flames

Riding out of hell You scream
I will not be denied
Try to get the life back
Who you were before you died

Is it my time?
Who am I?

The phoenix rising again
Back from the dead
Climbed back out of my grave
Now I'm ready to fly
With a heart full of metal
Time to make my mark
Put the pedal - to the devil

And when I hear the angels cry,
As I scream back into life,
From the rising to the setting sun,
I soar across the sky

Perhaps this time I will succeed,
Or am I doomed to fail
Break the barriers of life
And rule as a god beyond the pale

The phoenix rising again
Back from the dead
Climbed back out of my grave
Now I'm ready to fly
With a heart full of metal
Time to make my mark
Put the pedal - to the devil
The phoenix rising again
Back from the dead
Climbed back out of my grave
Now I'm ready to fly
With a heart full of metal
Time to make my mark
Put the pedal - to the devil
Track Name: Save Our Souls
Shipwrecked on the shores of the new world.
No star to follow, no direction
Twenty-twenty vision with no correction.
Offer a prayer up to your maker
But save some money for the undertaker
And in your final moments when you're all alone,
You call out to god but get his answerphone.

Climbing up the ladder to the top
But the higher you get, the weaker your grip
They're greasing up the rungs in the hope you slip.
And if you're gonna fall it's a long way down
You fell so hard you hit another town
Here's another lesson you think we'd learn
When we play with fire, we all burn.

Save Our Souls!
The idiot prayer of a fool!
Save Our Souls
Nobody will save your soul but you!

The distant sound of thunder in your ear
Not the son of God, or the son of Odin,
Just a pretty picture to hide your loathing.
"He has a plan for us all" you say
Loves all his children, unless they're poor or gay.
And a million dead babies is the price we payYour god wants you to die of AIDS

Save Our Souls!
The idiot prayer of a fool!
Save Our Souls
Nobody will save your soul but you!

Cross my heart and hope to die
The bible is a blood-soaked book of lies
To absolve them of the things they do
And take your power away from you
They tell you black is really white
The moon is just the sun at night
And when you walk in golden halls
You get to keep the gold that falls
Save Our Souls
Nobody will save your soul but you!
Save Our Souls
Nobody will save your soul but you!
Track Name: Dead End
Welcome to the end of the line.
Where purgatory is damnation and we're running out of time
A theater where luxury is obscene
And on a piece of headed paper
is the epitaph to your dreams

Welcome to austerity my friends
Where we're selling everything we own but we cannot pay the rent.
Slowly starving you to death
While entitled pigs in three piece suits,
are dividing up what's left.

This is Dead End

So when you're down on your knees
Reach a hand out to your brother and climb back to your feet
And when they're sticking it to the poor
Scream we're united, we stand together
We won't take it anymore.

This is Dead End

STAND TO-GET-HER
STRONG FOR-EVE-R
TURN BACK THIS TREND
NO MORE DEAD END
