Grinder (live)


There I was completely wasting
Out of work and down
All inside it's so frustrating
As I drift from town to town
Feel as though nobody cares if I live or die
So I might as well begin
To put some action in my life

Breaking the law
Breaking the law
Breaking the law
Breaking the law

So much for the golden future
I can't even start
I've had every promise broken
There's anger in my heart
You don't know what it's like
You don't have a clue
If you did you'd find yourselves
Doing the same thing too

Breaking the law
Breaking the law
Breaking the law
Breaking the law

You don't know what it's like

Breaking the law
Breaking the law
Breaking the law
Breaking the law



Pounding the world
Like a battering ram
Forging the furnace
For the final grand slam

Chopping away at the source
Soon the course will be done

Leaving a trail of destruction
That's second to none

Hammering anvils
Screaming muscle and might
Shattering blows
Crashing row beating fright

Fast devastating and
Desolisating the curse
Blasting the cannons of
Truth through each man
Of this earth

Wielding the axe
Comes the one culmination
That's always seemed
Certain to bring down the curtain on greed

Sifting the good from the bad
It's the age for the rage of the
Dogs which must fall to the just
And be free

Now grate for the vandals
Who trampled and sampled
Till this place conditioned
Brought forth demolition to war

The slipping and sliding
Corrosive subsiding
That withered and waned
Till the world seemed all drained
Fills the bay

Pounding the world
Like a battering ram
Forging the furnace
For the final grand slam

Chopping away at the source soon the course will be done
Leaving a trail of destruction
That's second to none
Second to none



We've taken too much for granted
And all the time it had grown
From the techno seeds we first planted
Evolved a mind of its' own

Marching in the streets
Dragging iron feet
Laser beaming hearts
Ripping men apart

From off I've seen my perfection
Where we could do as we please
In secrecy this infection
Was speading like a disease

Hiding underground
Knowing we'd be found
Caring for our lives
Reaped by robots scythes

Metal Gods, Metal Gods
Metal Gods, metal Gods

Machines are taking all over
With mankind in their command
In time they'd like to discover
How they can make their demand

Better be the slaves
To their wicked ways
But meeting with our death
Engulfed in molten breath



Never straight and narrow
I won't keep in time
Tend to bend the arrow out of line
Been inclined to wander
Off the beaten track
That's where there's thunder and the wind shouts back

Grinder - looking for the meat
Grinder - wants you to eat

Got no use for routine
I shiver at the thought
Open skies on my scene this boy won't get caught
Refuse to bait the man trap
Be left to set the snare
I love to have my sight capped everywhere

Grinder - looking for meat
Grinder - wants you to eat

I have my licence
It came with birth
For self reliance of this earth
You take the bullet
On which my name
Was etched to file me in your game

Day of independence
Stamped us like a brand
On the necks of millions to the land
As the mighty eagle
I need room to breath
Witness from the treadmill
I take my leave

Grinder - looking for meat
Grinder - wants you to eat
Grinder - looking for meat
Grinder - wants you to eat



Look around
They're movin' in
Hold the ground
When they begin

We can do it
We can do it
And if they wanna they can try
But they'll never get near
And they can keep out of here
Gonna keep on drivin' never stop

Chorus

United, united
United we stand
United we stand one and all
So give me hope
Don't give in

Make a stand
We're gonna win
We can do it
We can do it
And if they wanna they can try
But they'll never get near
And they can get out of here
Gonna keep on drivin' never stop

Chorus

United, united
United we stand
United we stand one and all
So give me hope
Don't give in

So give me love

Chorus - repeat 4 times



Living after midnight
Rockin' to the dawn
Lovin' till the morning
Then I'm gone, I'm gone

I took the city 'bout 1am
Loaded, loaded
I'm all geared up to score again
Loaded, loaded
I come alive in a neon light
That's when I make my moves right

Loving after midnight
Rockin' till the dawn
Lovin' till the mornin'
Then I'm gone, i'm gone

I'm aiming for you
I'm gonna floor you
My body's coming all night long!

Got gleaming chrome reflectin' steel
Loaded, loaded
Ready to take on every deal
Loaded, loaded
My pulse is racin', i'm hot to take
This motor's revved up fit to break

Chorus

The air's electric, sparking power
Loaded, loaded
I'm getting harder by the hour
Loaded, loaded
I set my sights and then home in
The joint starts flyin' when I begin

Chorus



I've had enough of being programmed
And told what I oughta do
Let's get one thing straight
I'll choose my fate
It's got nothing to do with you

The years are flying by
And it's time I got high
Took a sample of the good things in life
This is the chance i'm gonna take
Gonna kick out trouble and strife

I've grown sick and tired of the same old lies
Might look a little young
So what's wrong
You don't have to be old to be wise

Now I don't care if the people stare
And accuse me of going mad
Just get a long hard look into the mirror
Then tell me who's been had

The way things are going
I won't get a show in
Don't seem a lot of time
Not to me

So it's off with the ties
No compromise
What it takes
What it's like to be free

I've grown sick and tired of the same old lies
Might look a little young
So what's wrong
You don't have to be old to be wise

Solo

All right i'm down on the reins
Holding the rope
Live and let live from now on

And as the free hand
Alone a free man
I got a world of my own
I go as I please
Fend for myself
Bull out all the stops
Throw the dice

Out on my own
Gonna go it alone
When I need it i'll ask for advice

You don't have to be old to be wise - repeat



From a fire ball we came
Cross sea and mountain
We were drinking beauty with our eyes
We were given all
To make our own
Let us be left alone

Lay the tasks and pay the price
Everything suffice
Crashed and bolted all we craved
After every whim
What a state we're in
Is pain better than the grave?

Well we talk with other men
We see red and then
Deep inside our blood begins to boil
Like a tiger in the cage
We begin to shake with rage



Catch the flame now
Eye to eye
Don't let chances pass you by
Always someone at your back
Biding their time for attack

Check for decoys
Stay sharp edged
Double crosser's get your head
Carpet baggers bluff and strike
Kiss of judas spider like

Waiting like jackels
To sneak up and trick you
Wolves in sheeps clothing
So deft in consoling

Lurking in shadows
They pounce least expected
When they come to
They'll have gone right through you

Tricksters guilters
Play their game
Slight of handers
All the same

Masquerader in his lair
Wants to tangle in your hair
