Killing Machine
Lyrics: I. Kincaid
Music: HESSLER

Do I go left, do I go right
Go straight ahead, turn off the light
My god which way leads out?
One wrong move, madness unreal

Spiraling down, asking for more
There’s no escape, nowhere to go
Angel above, don’t cry for me
Rain hellfire, Killing Machine

Killing Machine
Killing Machine

Do I shoot first, or lie in wait
Just lay still, I am the bait
My god, which shadow will strike?
One wrong move, madness unreal

Spiraling down, asking for more
There’s no escape, nowhere to go
Angel above, don’t cry for me
Rain hellfire, Killing Machine

Killing Machine
Killing Machine

Solo: I Kincaid
Solo: E. Michael

Do I stop now, or start again
Lost all control, is this the end?
My God, will I come out on top?
To the earth, madness unreal

Spiraling down, asking for more
There’s no escape, nowhere to go
Angel above, don’t cry for me
Rain hellfire, Killing Machine

Spiraling down, asking for more
Completely surrounded, the last to go
Angel above, don’t cry for me
I fight alone, Killing Machine

Killing Machine
Killing Machine

INTRUDER
Lyrics: I.Kincaid
Music: HESSLER

Silently I’ve come alone, from beneath the street
Undercover infiltrate, leave you obsolete
Creep, crawl, plant the seed, strike at the core
Deadly virus you forgot, you chose to ignore

Watch out for Intruder
Your systems shocked
Watch out for Intruder
Never Stops

Certainly not by holy force, or the hands of man
I’ve entered your world, to destroy all I can
Lights fade, power’s gone, systems begin to dim
Flick the switch, blow the charges, crumble from within

Watch out for Intruder
Your systems shocked
Watch out for Intruder
Never Stops

Vultures shadow, a pale horse I ride
Can’t be bought, reasoned with, no place left to hide
No surrender, I’ll collect, the piper must be paid
Don’t you know? You’re standing with one foot in the grave

Solo: E. Michael

Watch out for Intruder
Your systems shocked
Watch out for Intruder
Never Stops

Watch out for Intruder
Your systems shocked
Watch out for Intruder
Can’t be, Won’t be, Must be

STOP

BLACK ROSE
Lyrics: I.Kincaid
Music: HESSLER

Raise your voice, slam the door, walk away, like before
Out of control, am I insane? Tears flow, fall like rain
Hear me now, stop this fight, throw in the towel, wrong a right
Fuse is lit, heart of stone, burn to the ground, this broken home

Farewell to you, my tortured soul
Farewell to you, my high and low
So farewell to you, I watch your eyes close
Farewell to you, my black rose

Ride the wind, leave no trace, can’t explain, face to face
Only place where you can hide, there’s no mirrors left inside
Hear me now, curse the day I’m the one that got away
Reckless when I put you down, water rise, watch you drown

Farewell to you, my tortured soul
Farewell to you, my high and low
So farewell to you, I watch your eyes close
Farewell to you, my black rose.  My black rose

Solo: E. Michael
Solo: I. Kincaid

Farewell to you, my tortured soul
Farewell to you, my high and low
Farewell to you, I watch your eyes close
Farewell to you, my black rose.

Farewell to you, and all the lies you sold
Farewell to you, the story has been told
Farewell to you, everybody knows
There’s no living coloron a black rose

On a dying rose

I’ve seen the curtain fall, the story has been told
Farewell to you, black rose

FROM THE DEAD
Lyrics: I.Kincaid
Music: HESSLER

Resurrect, Resurrect, Rise Again, Resurrect

Resurrect, can you save me
Walk again, will you make me
Or will I, fall down again

Where are you now? It’s been hell without you
My last chance, all I’ve got left
One more dose do it just for show, patience worn thin, moving too slow
Beast inside, is ready to explode.

Get out of my way

Resurrect, can you save me
Walk again, will you make me
Or will I, fall down again

Resurrect, can you save me
From the dead, will you wake me
Or will I, fall down again to the ground

Give me something else, to take me out
Everywhere I go, it’s stuck inside my head
Final dose give it so I know, patience worn thin, moving too slow
Beast inside, is ready to explode.

Resurrect, can you save me
Walk again, will you make me
Or will I, fall down again

Resurrect, can you save me
From the dead, will you wake me
Or will I, fall down again to the ground

Solo: I. Kincaid

Resurrect, can you save me
Walk again, will you make me
Or will I, fall down again

Resurrect, can you save me
From the dead, will you wake me
Or will I, fall down again to the ground

KING OF STING
Lyrics: I.Kincaid
Music: HESSLER

Resurrect, Resurrect, Rise Again, Resurrect

Resurrect, can you save me
Walk again, will you make me
Or will I, fall down again

Once I was a wicked boy, held my head up high
Resolute, bulletproof, screamed by battle cry. They’d say
Dare you dance up here boy, it’s a long way down
Danger at every corner, who’s the king of town

I am, the king
The king of sting. The king of sting

When I was a fighting man, I answered to no one
Dangerous, invincible, bigger than the sun. They’d say
Dare you fight up here man, it’s a long way down
Daggers at your back, who’s the king of town

Bring the knives, bring the guns, light the TNT
I am, the king
The king of sting. The king of sting
I am, the king
I am, the king
The king of sting. The king of sting
I am, the king
The king of sting. The king of sting
Solo: E. Michael
Solo: I. Kincaid
Now I rule the land, mighty in the throne
Lightning quick on the draw, left them dust ‘n bones. They’d say
Dare you sit up here king, it’s a long way down
Poison in every cup, who’s the king of town
Are you foolish? Too blind to see? I’ve still got a couple rounds left in me
I am, the king
The king of sting. The king of sting
I am, the king
I am, the king
The king of sting. The king of sting
I am, the king
The king of sting. The king of sting. The king of sting
Let’s go to war.

SKELETON CREW
Lyrics: I.Kincaid
Music: HESSLER

Now is the envy of all of the dead. You began the journey as a killing machine. Complete tunnel vision of “can’t stop – won’t stop”… until an Intruder crashed your world around you, leaving nothing but raw poisoned earth. No drum is beaten and no dog barks. You are on the ground…hah…might as well be in the ground. Or so they say. Flatline, they say. You tell yourself “I’ve fought too long to surrender now” and you begin to claw out of the dirt. You fall, and fall, but always get back up. You spit at the vultures circling above and curse the black rose that brought you here. Slowly you rise absorbing energy along the way with every move. There is no middle ground. This is your time and you cannot be denied; but to truly resurrect and come back from the dead you need a king. The Skeleton Crew has done their job.
