ENEMY! Lyrics – Click to Expand/Close

1. BATTLE CRY

Live like a dog when they’re livin’ like a lord
All that shit means it’s time to go to war now
Step right up and go on and light the fuse
We got too much to lose

Rise and die or kneel down and bow
Time to fight so you better feel it right now
Strike it hard, deep down to the bowels
My battle cry is a muthafucken howl

Peel away all your hate
Save the day, accept your fate
Hit it hard, make it fly
Look your pain in the eye, let me hear your battle cry

Slaughterhouse, buncha fucken sows
Knock it down, let’s have a show of force now
Clock is tickin’, not a minute to spare
Scalpin’ time, let’s take some fucken hair

(chorus)

Gonna take the day
I got the notion
Gonna clear the way
Like locomotion

(1st verse)
(chorus)

2. ENEMY

You think you’re fit to go to war?
Can’t even figure out which way to point your sword
Who you fightin’ for?!?!
Now, don’t go fucken MIA
It’s not too late to find the way

Got to decide whose words are lies
It’s heresey, no matter what their gods say
Since when those fuckers care for you?
I think it’s time that you should see, you let them pick your enemy

You think your done runnin’ amok?
What happens when both sides are wrong, son?
They’ll have you dancin’ on a string
While donkeys go and show their asses
We’re runnin’ out of fucken chances!

It’s time for some reality
We’ve gone mad, like some hallucination
How did you let them get to you?
I think it’s time that you should see, you let them pick your enemy

STRIKE! BREAK OUT! LOOK ALIVE!
First we bring the smoke, then we fucken go for broke

Got to decide whose words are lies
It’s heresey, no matter what their gods say
Since when those fuckers care for you?
I think it’s time that you should see, you let them pick your enemy

3. IF HELL’S WHERE I HAVE TO BE

If it’s law don’t make it right
Wrong is wrong but might is might
They play fair but I won’t, devil may care but I don’t
Keep on bringing them blood and pain

Here comes the fire like a funeral pyre
It’s burning free come on and join the party
Bringing up the flame on society
Gonna turn up the heat if Hell’s where I have to be

Living a life of lust and pain
Battle against just staying the same
Let it loose don’t fight it, you may learn to like it
Follow these orders and disobey

It’s like a gun firing out the sun
Rollin’ up the street putting on a bounty
Living on the edge, like insanity
Gonna turn up the heat if Hell’s where I have to be

Gonna try to fight it, cuz I kinda like it
Dominate conspiracy, overthrow nobility

(chorus 1 & 2)

4. RAISIN’ HELL AGAIN

Voice in my head
Beautiful angel of death
Draw fast, die last she said

They say I’m never gonna do right
Because I’m burnin’ on the inside
Your Father said he never met me
That is what’s happenin’, I’m raisin’ hell again

The saints are all gone
Came here just to get marauded on
Yes, they will find blood again tonight

Heard say I’m never gonna see the light
Hell, I ain’t quittin’ in a firefight
You Father said he’s gonna get me
That is what’s happenin’, I’m raisin’ hell again

5. EVIL DOVE

All about a victim – to a jezebel chant
A bottle of snakebite – and a black cat dance

Make that wish – and cast that spell
Wait until darkness – and her sweet Hell

Turned to prayers to get her man
The used fire to force his hand
Sermons seem to come undone
Can’t seem to fight Evil Dove

Devils mass – and fool’s believe
When demons kiss – her angels feet

Uses her legs – to curse and trick
Too hard to die – too sick to live

Devil’s back to stake his claim
Her sweet bones is all he crave
Loco-eyed and dressed in blood
Can’t seem to find Evil Dove

(chorus 1)

I am back to stake my claim
Her sweet bones is all I crave
Loco-eyed and dressed in blood
Can’t seem to find Evil Dove

6. ONE PER SINNER

Lower your eyes if you never will fight
I know some warriors and they’re doing all right
The kings and queen are gonna take a fall

Forgive and forget is stuck in the mud
Gonna overturn that bucket of blood
Be an event like you’ve never seen

Never fall down, never lie down
Never play the lamb, for fuckin’ goddamn
Grab a winner, one per sinner

Please believe me, it’s about that time
If you ain’t ready then you better go hide
You’d understand me if you lived the life

You don’t think I know my time is gonna come
Hey there fuck you ever lost someone?
Until you die you’re never gonna be free

When you deny some, then you die some
It’s all a game, make a fuckin’ name
Eat a dinner, one per sinner

(chorus 1)

7. PAIN & MISERY

Lived to die, and battled through the years
War’s my wife and she cried a thousand bloody tears
Fought the law cuz it kept me down
Never mattered anyhow…

My blackened heart, laying on the floor
Throw it out, cuz I’ll never need it any more
It’s all gone, now I live to bleed
Pain & Misery come to be with me

Fightin’ on, always seeing red
Now I spend my life wishing I was good and dead
Screaming out, got to feed the beast
Maybe bring on some relief

Sanity walking out the door
Dark comes in but it’s never like it was before
I’ll never run, rage is now my creed
Pain & Misery come to be with me

I’m feeling gone
Like a ticking bomb

(chorus 1)

8. BLED FOR NO REASON

Signed up for a war – where to die is shame
And I will sacrifice just to honor our name
After what I saw – I am not the same
Living by your balls, the name of the fuckin’ game

I gave my life, and then I gave my soul
Tried to take it back, but they sold it out for gold
I won’t swear to God, but I’m gonna make Him see
I want freedom for all, just don’t fuckin’ lie to me

Policy – Enemy
Honesty – Casualty
You turned freedom into a demon
And this S.O.B. bled for no reason

You told this motherfuck I was going home
Now I finally know I will never grow old
Screw your fuckin’ way, screw your policy
Don’t you mock my life, and don’t you dare mock me

Society – Treachery
Deity – Blasphemy
Your treason made you a heathen
And this muthafuck bled for no reason

(verse 1)
(chorus 1 & 2)

9. CHEAT THE DIRT

When it’s dark – and times is hard
An iron heart – will get you far
Knock it down, suck it up and then you’ll see
A hardened soul will make them see

The road was hard, the women kind
Knuckle up, pull it down, time to feed
Won’t concede to this disease

Send a mighty man to his knees
Ain’t gonna die – but, man, it’s gonna hurt
Gonna ride the pain, gonna cheat the dirt

And your blood’s your only friend
Bring it out, load it up and then you’ll see
What you gave up to be free

So we can watch this treason fall
Ain’t gonna lie, your world is gonna burst
Gonna ride the pain, gonna cheat the dirt

 

10. THE WILDSIDE

We got ourselves a mob that won’t scrape or bow
And these wolves will pack – when it’s time to howl
We’ll introduce ourselves by kickin’ through the door
If you think you want some – then get up off the fucking floor!

These muthafucks are staying up for days
Got to fuck and fight all night, got to fly them colors right
Hitting hard in fifty different ways
Call ‘em up, time to ride
Headin’ for the Wildside

Celebrate the dead who can’t have their say
Respects for all before, throwin’ down the outlaw way

Once it starts too late to step away
Show up strong, prepare well, welcome to a rolling Hell
Out in force and showing oh so right
Fueled by booze and appetite
Ridin’ for the Wildside

We got ourselves a mob that won’t scrape or bow
And these wolves will pack – when it’s time to howl
We’ll introduce ourselves by kickin’ in the door
If you think you want some…Ha!

(chorus 1 & 2)

11. CALL YOUR BLUFF

Maybe you’re getting ready to brawl
Yeah, you better think about it
Bad vibes are hitting the floor
And that’s for fuckin’ sure

If your shit does propagate
Hell yes, I will retaliate
And I am just a ticking bomb
And I will count down
If you haven’t figured out
Yes, I’ve fucking had enough
When it’s time to cash it in
I’m gonna call your bluff

Now you draw the line in the sand
Maybe calling Judas in
Tell your gods, “Get ready for blood”
It’s them I’m thinkin’ of

(choruses)

12. READ MY BIBLE

All he tries to say to me – with His heavenly touch
Well, all your conversations lack of such
Thou shall not pertain to me – and my earthly way
As I do prepare to set them free

Just so you know what you got in store
Gonna let you know how I’m gonna roll

First I wring his neck – second I cut his throat
Third I tie him to a tree – and slice of most of his nose
Now it’s time to finish it – I take out my damned rifle
A shot to the back of the head – then I read my bible

That there man of intellect – a sinner that don’t believe
My pure mind will bring him to his knees
To all those that resist – I will heal your mind
And find all contradictions justified
