Track Name: Werewolves of the Perigee
The werewolves of the Perigee
Howling at the night
Feeding off the effigy
From the fiery light

For they always knew
It would be over
Before the night was through
So they seized the day
Slashed away
Made merry before their doom
Track Name: Fer Ever
Good day I am eternally
Happy to be in your company
And if I may say you’re quite lovely
Would you please come home and stay with me
…FOREVER!

Eternity describes my love for you
It’s a feeling that I felt when I was a youth
But I know it’s something that I mustn’t do
But the pain is worth the life I share with you

Good day I am eternally
Happy to be in your company
And if I may say you’re quite lovely
Would you please come home and stay with me
…FOREVER!
Track Name: Halo of Flies
The man talks to his shadow
As he’s walking down the street
And he greets all the women with disregard
And a look of severity

And he’s erasing his past
For he lived all to well
To grow like a wretch
In his world of Hell

At last he wears his halo of flies
And his scarlet red sunburnt cheeks
Shredding out the pages of his burned out mind
For the world to never read
Track Name: War Across the Water
We’ve got a war across the water
We need more cannon fodder
Mommy’s seeds have been stolen
And now the thunder keeps a rolling
Across the way another family prays
Someday we’re gonna meet our fate

And now the flames of bodies burnin’
Another boy was a yearnin’
For his family and his woman
But the cannons came and took him
Away, another family prays
Someday we’re gonna meet our fate
Track Name: Shoot the Messenger
They told me not to shoot my messenger
But I pulled the trigger
They told me he worked for my master
So here’s a letter for you
Track Name: Reflections of a Man
I have come and gone from here
A long time ago
And I have come to revisit roads
That I have walked down before
And they have changed;
They’ve all be paved and covered with glimmering gold
And I am not the same young man
I’m not as beautiful now
Track Name: I Will Agree
They tell me that I’ve got the mind of a mule
That I smoke and drink and swear too much
And I must agree...
I agree…
To completely disagree!

They tell me that I am out of my mind
That I am bound to self destruct
And I must agree…
I agree…
To completely disagree!
Track Name: But She’s the Woman I Love
There is a place I dream of
Where the sun never shines
Blood flows like rivers of wine
From the throats of the men who
I’ve had the pleasure of killing
After they’ve tried stealing the woman I love
No-one will fancy my lady for they will be slayed
And buried alive

Now she’s bearing a child
With a man with an arrogant mind
So I took him and I cut out his tongue
And I politely explained
"I am sorry, I must kill your baby
I cannot raise another’s child
No-one will fancy my lady for they will be slayed
And buried alive."
Track Name: If I Wanted
If I wanted to hear a sermon
I would have gone to church today
If I wanted to be a servant
I would have thrown my mind away

I would say the Devil is a better man
Than you could ever be
It is strange when men of rage
Can claim superiority

If I wanted to be a king
I wouldn’t sing…
I’d KILL!
If I wanted your fancy things
I wouldn’t ask…
I’d steal!

I would say the Devil is a better man
Than you could ever be
It is strange when men of rage
Can claim superiority
Track Name: Cockroach Cookbook
I’ve got roaches in my dresser
Roaches in my shoes
Roaches in my cupboards
I’ve got roaches in my booze
They were drinking all my whisky
They were puffing on my pipe
They ate all my spaghetti
I haven’t eaten since last night

But at last I’ve found an answer
And I’ll never go hungry
I just fry them up in butter
And I eat them with my tea

I have roach breakfast in bed
They’re just steaming on my plate
I eat them with some bread
And they taste rather great!
They were drinking all my whisky
They were puffing on my pipe
They ate all my spaghetti
I haven’t eaten since last night
Track Name: Because…I’m a Doctor
I have got lots of drugs
And I have got lots of knives
and I have got lots of bodies

Because…I’m a doctor!

And I dish out lots of drugs
And I have got lots of money
And I stab lots of bodies

Because…I’m a doctor!

And I have got lots of women
Who are all my nurses
And they give me all their loving

Because…I’m a doctor!

People pay me to STAB them
People pay me to GRAB them
People give me ALL their money

Because…I’m a BASTARD!
I mean...I’m a doctor! Yes...
Track Name: Place in My Heart
There is a place in my heart where you be…
Long time ago we were young…

Now we’re apart
From each other
Now it’s all over

I left you behind
Now you’re on my mind

There is a place in the ground where you be…
Long time ago we were young…
Track Name: Poison Potion (Lyrics by Genevieve Liberté)
The men dug up the monster
Released it from it’s cage
Showered and devoured
The coward and the brave
Now it’s plundering the sea
And it’s sure to meet the shore
Did you see the monster’s teeth?
Did you hear the monster roar?

Poison potion for the ocean
Deep sea sick
Ships sinking quick
Bowels bleeding
Bile seeding
Oil slicking to the clock ticking

Tick. Tock. Tick. Tock.
Tick. Tock. Tick. Tock.

We poisoned the earth
And it poisoned us back
The sky turns to black
As the earth begins to crack
Now it’s plundering the sea
And it’s sure to meet the shore
Did you see the monster’s teeth?
Did you hear the monster roar?

Poison potion for the ocean
Deep sea sick
Ships sinking quick
Bowels bleeding
Bile seeding
Oil slicking to the clock ticking
