When the Sky Is Black (LP) – 2021

01. Crazy Horse

Down from the mountain, outta my way
Past high noon, outta my way
Never gonna catch me, Kid’s long gone tonight

Stayin’ downwind, Outta my way
Ghostin’ you, Outta my way
Never gonna catch me, Kid’s long gone tonight

Crazy Horse, hourglass runs to Mexico
Crazy Horse, runnin’, runnin’ from death row
Crazy Horse, hourglass runs to Mexico
Crazy Horse, run kid run

Hot on the trail, outta my way
One step ahead, outta my way
Never gonna catch me, Kid’s long gone tonight

Son of the wind, outta my way
Rolling thunder, outta my way
Never gonna catch me
Kid’s long gone tonight

Crazy Horse, hourglass runs to Mexico
Crazy Horse, runnin’, runnin’ from death row
Crazy Horse, hourglass runs to Mexico
Crazy Horse, run kid run

Redline dance, outta my way
Burning rubber, outta my way
Never gonna catch me, Kid’s long gone tonight

Suns going down, outta my way
Follow me to hell, outta my way
Bullet with your name, find it’s way home tonight

Crazy Horse, hourglass runs to Mexico
Crazy Horse, runnin’, runnin’ from death row
Crazy Horse, hourglass runs to Mexico
Crazy Horse, run kid run
Run, run
Run, run
Boy you better run


02. AKIRA

A monster bomb went off, not so long ago
From the rubble grew, neo-Tokyo
Wicked vengeance ruled the streets, like a tidal wave
Restless youth rose up, for a time to claim

What’s good for me, must be bad for you
Bad for me, good for you too
For your health, education
Follow us now, new sensation

A K I R A, we strike hard, then fade away
A K I R A, cyberpunks, so they say
A K I R A, take another pill, it’s judgment day
A K I R A, high octane thirst, time to play

Secrets disappeared, under the lights
Bullets, sirens, people screamed, grey skin turned to white
Explosive crash, telekinetic, fire burned the air
A lone wolf soaked in gasoline, starts the new nightmare

What’s good for me, must be bad for you
Bad for me, good for you too
For your health, education
Follow us now, new sensation

A K I R A, we strike hard, then fade away
A K I R A, cyberpunks, or so they say
A K I R A, take another pill, judgment day
A K I R A, high octane thirst, time to play

19, 25, 26, 27, 28, 41

Walk with me down, to absolute zero
Follow the grim revenger, the ghost of Tokyo

What’s good for me, must be bad for you
Bad for me, good for you too
For your health, education
Follow us now, new sensation
A K I R A, we strike hard, then fade away
A K I R A, cyberpunks, so they say
A K I R A, take another pill, judgment day
A K I R A, high octane thirst, time to play


03. This Evil

Rise like the undead hungry for a fight
Death’s been paid by Hell’s children tonight
The earth won’t open to swallow them down
So I drag them one by one, underground

Why do I behave like this?
Why can I not resist?

Sometimes I wake up to not re-live what I saw
And sometimes I wake up, with my knuckles bloody raw
And sometimes I wake up, and I don’t know where I am
And sometimes I wake up, when the trouble’s just began

Evil, this evil, refuses to die
Rock the outer limits, rock the other side
Evil, this evil, poisons my mind
Refuses to die, refuses to die

Eyes fixed on shadowed lines, evil shapes
A tortured mind, with no escape
Steal it away, forever to win
In deep water, it’s sink or swim

Why do I behave like this?
Why can I not resist?

Sometimes I wake up to not re-live what I saw
And sometimes I wake up, with my knuckles bloody raw
And sometimes I wake up, and I don’t know where I am
And sometimes I wake up, when the trouble’s just began
Why can I not resist?

Evil, this evil, refuses to die
Rock the outer limits, rock the other side
Evil, this evil, poisons my mind
Refuses to die, refuses to die

Evil, this evil, refuses to die
Rock the outer limits, rock the other side
Evil, this evil, poisons my mind
Refuses to die, refuses to die

Refuses to die, this evil of mine
On the outer limits, on the other side
Evil, this evil, poisons my mind
Refuses to die


04. Fallen Star

Let me sit down here, sit down for a while
I did not come alone, no, it just, isn’t my style
The last of the savage, the last of a kind
Never an insult swallowed, no enemies, alive (Alive)

Cut out the heart of the night (The night)
Save a piece for me
Fallen star, burning bright for the world to see
Cut out the heart of the night (The night)
Save a piece for me
I’m hypnotized, paralyzed, for the world to see

The head of the snake, that lead us to the grave
Never got a bite of me, I’m not a prisoner of the day
Saying hi to old ghosts, as I fall off planet earth
The good guys lost, no surprise, is that what a life is worth?

Cut out the heart of the night (The night)
Save a piece for me
Fallen star, burning bright for the world to see
Cut out the heart of the night (The night)
Save a piece for me
I’m hypnotized, paralyzed, for the world to see

Just don’t call me a hero, I’m just a sentinel
I didn’t want to stand watch, but someone had to go
Will the flags fly at half mast? Will anyone sing for me?
On the surface it’s all calm, but these waters run deep

Cut out the heart of the night (The night)
Save a piece for me
Fallen star, burning bright for the world to see
Cut out the heart of the night (The night)
And save a piece for me
I’m hypnotized, paralyzed, for The world to see

Cut out the heart of the night (The night)
Save a piece for me
The fires of Hell, burning bright for the world to see
Cut out the heart of the night (The night)
And save a piece for me
Are you hypnotized? Are you paralyzed?
For the world to see


05. When the Sky Is Black

Spiritual parasite, dream chaser
A sweet kiss, body with cancer
Everyone together, dying slow
Not the right medicine, we got to go

Bottled thunder, ice cold bed
Concrete roses, painted in red
Heavy metals, melting as one
Sink into the earth, with the setting sun

Wretched souls, the afterthought
We are the ones that God forgot
A beating heart, forced to stop
We are the ones that God forgot

Crystal prison, monsters sleep
Time’s run out, war drums beat
These hopes shattered, forever gone
A final breath, before the dawn

Tragic heroes, our downfall
Dying stars, once and for all
Many battled, finished all but one
Up in smoke, forever gone

Wretched souls, the afterthought
We are the ones that God forgot
A beating heart, forced to stop
We are the ones that God forgot

The fires lit, to make us insane
This controlled burn, is about to begin
The Devil rode out, refused to stay
Just another one standing, in the way

Wretched souls, the afterthought
We are the ones that God forgot
A beating heart, forced to stop
We are the ones that God forgot

Wretched souls, the afterthought
We are the ones that God forgot
A beating heart, forced to stop
We are the ones that God forgot


06. No, I’m Alpha Male

Am I a Scorpio, am I the sun
Is this my body or an empire of fun
Am I an acrobat, machine of steel
Public manimal, always dressed to, always dressed to

No, I’m alpha male!
I never fail, my DNA’s for sale
Alpha male
4 leg caucasion, 2 leg alsation, I am
That’s what I am: Alpha Male!

Am I too small, an unimpressive
Or am I way too hot and wired and aggressive
Am I a bitch magnet, CHICAGO waste
Will the wind carry your saliva to my face

No, I’m alpha male!
I’m not to scale, my DNA’s for sale
Alpha Male
4 leg Caucasian, 2 legged alcasian, I am
That’s what I am: Alpha male!

I got one million issues today
For you a barb wire bouquet!

No, I’m alpha male!
Born with a tail, my DNA’s for sale
Alpha Male
A sullied Caucasian, a two leg alcasian, I am
That’s what I am, I got a plan
ALPHA MALE


07. London Dungeon
(Written by Glenn Danzig)

They called us walking corpses
Unholy living dead
They had to lock us up
Put us in their British hellMake sure your face is clean now
Can’t have no dirty dead
All the corpses here are clean, boy
All the Yanks in British hellI don’t want to be here in your London Dungeon
I don’t want to be here in your British hell
Ain’t no mystery why I’m in misery in Hell
Here’s hoping you’re swellThey called us walking corpses
Unholy living dead
They had to lock us up
Put us in their British hellI don’t want to be here in your London Dungeon
I don’t want to be here in your British hell
Ain’t no mystery why I’m in misery in Hell
Here’s hoping you’re swellMake sure your face is clean now
Can’t have no dirty dead
All the corpses here are clean, boy
All the Yanks in British hellI don’t want to be here in your London Dungeon
I don’t want to be here in your British hell
Ain’t no mystery why I’m in misery in HellHere’s hoping you’re swell
Here’s hoping you’re swell
Here’s hoping you’re swell
Here’s hoping you’re swell


08. El Jefe

Oh I’ve already been there, man
I’ve seen the flames expire
Like smoke wandering the air
Trying to find a fire

The graveyard of empires
Grows larger by the hour
Can’t bury your dead
When the ground is sour

Want me to lay down?
My guns on the floor
Just surrender now
No uprise anymore?

An air of desperation
To our encounter still
In this decayed era
It’s, kill or be killed

Forgotten war machine
Rusting in the rain
Cursing for a reason
To start it up again

Want me to lay down
My guns on the floor
Just surrender now
No uprise anymore?

Two coins for the boatman
A funeral on the cheap
So go ahead and send me
Six feet
Six feet
Six feet
Six feet deep

Counting every step
The end is coming soon
Like a dying wolf,
Biting at his wounds

Want me to lay down
My guns on the floor
Just surrender now
No uprise anymore?

Want me to lay down
These guns on the floor
Just surrender now
No uprise anymore?
No uprise anymore?
No uprise anymore?
No uprise anymore…


09. Twilight Zone
(written by George Kooymans)

It’s two a.m. (It’s two a.m.)
The fear has gone (The fear has gone)
I’m sittin’ here waitin’ (I’m sittin’ here waitin’)
The gun still warm (The gun still warm)
Maybe my connection is tired of takin’ chancesYeah there’s a storm on the loose, sirens in my head
I’m wrapped up in silence, all circuits are dead
I cannot decode, my whole life spins into a frenzyHelp I’m steppin’ into the twilight zone
The place is a madhouse,
Feels like being cloned
My beacon’s been moved under moon and star
Where am I to go, now that I’ve gone too far?
Help I’m steppin’ into the twilight zone
The place is a madhouse,
Feels like being cloned
My beacon’s been moved under moon and star
Where am I to go, now that I’ve gone too far?
Soon you will come to know,
When the bullet hits the bone
Soon you will come to know,
When the bullet hits the boneI’m falling down a spiral,
Destination unknown
A double-crossed messenger,
All alone
I can’t get no connection,
I can’t get through,
Where are you?Well the night weighs heavy on his guilty mind
This far from the borderline
And when the hit man comes
He knows damn well he has been cheated
And he saysHelp I’m steppin’ into the twilight zone
The place is a madhouse,
Feels like being cloned
My beacon’s been moved under moon and star
Where am I to go, now that I’ve gone too far?
Help I’m steppin’ into the twilight zone
The place is a madhouse,
Feels like being cloned
My beacon’s been moved under moon and star
Where am I to go, now that I’ve gone too far?
Soon you will come to know,
When the bullet hits the bone
Soon you will come to know,
When the bullet hits the bone
When the bullet hits the boneHelp I’m steppin’ into the twilight zone
The place is a madhouse,
Feels like being cloned
My beacon’s been moved under moon and star
Where am I to go, now that I’ve gone too far?Help I’m steppin’ into the twilight zone
The place is a madhouse,
Feels like being cloned
My beacon’s been moved under moon and star
Where am I to go, now that I’ve gone too far?
Soon you will come to know,
When the bullet hits the bone
Soon you will come to know,
When the bullet hits the bone
Soon you will come to know,
When the bullet hits the bone
Soon you will come to know,
When the bullet hits the bone
When the bullet hits the bone
When the bullet hits the bone
When the bullet hits the bone
When the bullet hits the bone


10. Bad Blood

As the clock ticks the time, I wonder where you are
I turn left, I turn right, feel you from afar
I search among the dead, what I can’t attain
Déjà vu, not again, I go more insane, I’m fueled by

I’m fueled by
Bad Blood, in front of me
Bad Blood, taking over me
I’m fueled by
Bad Blood, that never stops to flow
Bad Blood, always says lets go

Sit up on that lap and smile, fill my eyes with sin
Defang me, cut my rattle, strip me of my skin
Whisper in my ear, to get what you need
It’s your act, play your roll, entertain your greed, I’m fueled by

I’m fueled by
Bad Blood, in front of me
Bad Blood, taking over me
I’m fueled by
Bad Blood, that never stops to flow
Bad Blood, always says lets go

I want!, I need!
You’ve got!
Bad Blood! Go go go!

Spin my world like a top, I’m sinking like a stone
One more round further down, mental all alone
Promises ringing out, my mind left behind
All I ever wanted was scripted then denied

I’m fueled by
Bad Blood, in front of me
Bad Blood, taking over me
I’m fueled by
Bad Blood, that never stops to flow
Bad Blood, always says lets go

I want!
I need!
You’ve got!
Bad Blood! Go go go!

You want
You need
I’ve got
Bad Blood
Now I’m drowning slow…
