1. Bulldozer

Into the battles, making cages rattle
There's a pain that's inside us and we're letting it out
Charge right in, we dare to fail
No one is giving in, always we live to win
A hunger turns and burns inside of all of us
And it will not be denied

Walking a path untravelled to reach higher levels
Challenging, always going against the grain
Blood for blood - that is the rule
And we will make th rules, never be fortune's fool
There's right and wrong in almost everything we do
For us we do what is right

Bulldozer feeds upon the weaker as they fall
Bulldozer crashes all

Somebody told me I should do what they told me
But there's a hole in that plan and I'm tearing it down
Trust our guts, follow our hearts
No one can break these nuts, these lips ain't kissing butts
The path of most resistance tests all of our strength
This strength will not be denied

Bulldozer feeds upon the weaker as they fall
Bulldozer crashes all
Bulldozer feeds upon the weaker as they fall
Bulldozer crashes all

Walking on paths untravelled
Challenging one and all
Deeper into the battles
Alone and standing tall
The more evolving changes
The more we stay the same
Full steam against the odds
Go headfirst against the grain

Full steam we go against the odds
Headfirst we go against the grain

Bulldozer goes against the odds
Bulldozer goes against the grain

Against the odds, against the grain
We go against the odds, against the grain

This is the bulldozer
This is the bulldozer




2. The Blood, The Sweat, The Tears

Yes I've walked the path that's righteous
Many men have walked before
Yeah this pain cell, the broken shell
Scraped, shackled onte the floor
So welcome to the world that I lived in
Puking out violence hate
My world entered a false recluse
Sickening from disease
But then I see
This thing in me
Make me want it more than you
But I deny your flesh
Cause pain's my wish
Racing on self destruct

So hold on to the end...

It's all about the blood, the sweat, the tears
A tribute to the strength built through the years

Oh yes I've walked the path that
Gives me confidence strong and pure
Now I realized that freedom rises
From confronting the source
I built these walls around me
And I can't break them all away
And I focus on the strength I call
Insufferable and insane

So hold on to the end...

It's all about the blood, the sweat, the tears
A tribute to the strength built through the years
A tribute to soul...

Take this
Focus
Madness
To take...

...hold...on...on...on...

Hold on.. falling.. please let go..
Hold on.. I'm falling... I'm falling down again...

It's all about the blood, the sweat, the tears
A tribute to the strength built through the years

A tribute cos time will set 'em off
Cos time will set 'em off




3. Ten Ton Hammer

I am the thing that makes you sick
I am the blame that gets placed quick
Detect the crack within your lie
I'll be the wrath of your disdain
I'll be the fear in you ingrained
Become the facts that you deny

I can feel this pain is real
I hate deep down inside
And like broken glass you'll shatter
With bloody fists
I'll batter
Like a ten ton hammer

I'll be the trembling in your breath
Trickle of blood upon your flesh
You'd love to watch me take the fall
I'll be the thing that you despise
'Cause I'm the path to your demise
And I'm a be there standing tall

I can feel this pain is real
I hate deep down inside
And like broken glass you'll shatter
With bloody fists
I'll batter
Like a ten ton hammer

I can't stand or take another day my friend
You could learn a thing or two

I can feel this pain is real
I hate deep down inside
And like broken glass you'll shatter
With bloody fists
I'll batter
Like a ten ton hammer




4. Old

I am the man that defends all things profane
6000 years is the time that I shall reign
And with a grin drank the blood of holy swine
Impurity made the blood turn into wine

[Chorus:]
Old man, dead hand
If only their insanity
The lie feeds off their greed
Jesus wept

I am the pain that feeds off your weakness
A sickening born of hate, not of the blessed
And with the time I will crush all things you prey
Destroying all from the known to the arcane

[Chorus]

Burn my eyes and try to blind me
Bury me so they won't find me
Try to suck my power empty
Got no crown of thorns on me

So burn my eyes and try to blind me
Bury me so they won't find
Try to suck my power dry
You got no crown of thorns on me

[Chorus]




5. Crashing Around You

I am your nightmares, true scares
That dream when you canít stop from falling
Canít fight, canít run
Canít stop the person youíve become

I am your heartbreaks, mistakes
That place inside you hate
I am that shadow following every move, reminding you
That itís never good enough, never good enough
Even though youíll try and try
Iím gonna call your bluff
Because I am the thing bringing the feelings whenÖ

Your world comes crashing around you
Smashes down around you
When will you see that you cannot hide from me?

When you feel darkness, hopeless
Canít cope with all the stress
Iíll make you hate life, bring strife
Remember failures hardened stare
And itís never gonna change, never gonna change
Always theyíll be judging you
Compared to who and who
You trust in me but I only live to see

Your world comes crashing around you
Smashes down around you
When will you see that you cannot hide from me?

When I come for you
When I see through you
When I eat through you
When I destroy you

Youíll think youíre betrayed, astray
Iíll leave you ripped and torn so bad you
Canít trust, canít love
Canít understand why lifeís so fucked
Iím deep inside your mind
In constant remind
If you leave your thoughts to me, believe
Iíll make sure that I see

Your world comes crashing around you
Smashes down around you
When will you see that you cannot hide from me?

Iíll make your world come crashing around you
Smash down around you
Iíll let you see why you cannot hide from me
Because I am you




6. Take My Scars

It's been around for a thousand years
And it'll be here for plenty more
It is the face hidden in disgrace
That has become now an open sore

It is a false messiah
It is the face of pain
The bringer of the bittersweet
The heretic insane

Take my scars
Through hands of God
I found a better way
To break the walls

Fed all the lies and desensitized
Taught to believe that it is the way
Taught to divide and exactly why
You'll never understand my rage

You've never had to borrow
You've never had to steal
You eat it with your silver spoon
For me it's real

Take my scars
Through hands of God
I found a better way
To break the walls

[Lead: Robb]

Blood and concrete
Piss and wine
Whores that fuck
To feel divine

They'll clean their needles
In their shrine
In ignorance
It's bliss you find

Why can't you fuckin' open
Open your eyes




7. I'm Your God Now

So pain told you to take her
Well I learned to accept that feeling
'Cause I found how to numb it
If only for just a short while
I'd get so high, I'd forget my own name
I scarred my fist, I scarred my brain
I think that i'm going insane
I think that I'm going insane

So Drink up, so shoot in
Why must this feeling end
I crawled in my narcotic shell
Was crucified in my own hell
A gutter's where I found myself
Among the waste I chose to dwell
I chose to dwell

So now I'm in your system
And I'm what helps you numb your pain
With time you will confide in me
So lonely my friend, I've made you lose control
You'll use me more and more with time
Our friendship grows with each mainline
So glad that you could be so blind
So glad that you could be so blind

So drink up, so shoot in
'Cause I'll make this feeling end
I built you this narcotic shell
I crucified you in your hell
Your life not yours, you're just my slave
I am your messiah of pain
And time has come to
Time has come to, time has come to
There is no time to pray

'Cause I'm your God now




8. None But My Own

I am only nothing, I am only this
I am just a man with these two fists
You have asked forgiveness
You have asked respect
Only something that you did forget

All you gave you had planned to take
Beat upon me but I won't break
Stripping everything from me? No!

Will to me your anger, will to me your rage
Will to me your lies, your sufferings
Not a man of virtue, not even a man
Will not take the hate dealt from your hands

Years of pain I will take and hone
Manifest with your broken bones
My heart bleeds for none but my own
My own

Burn
Burn

I am only nothing, I am only this
I am just a man with these two fists
Not a man of virtue, not even a man
Will not take the hate dealt from your hands

Years of pain I will take and hone
Manifest with your broken bones
My heart bleeds for none but my own
My own

Burn
Burn

My heart bleeds for none but my own...




9. From This Day

Yeah, yeah, you gotta
Stand tall and cut away the ties
Drop balls and hold that head up high
The world is fast and youth ain't gonna wait
So grab a hold before it gets too late
Bare your soul and strip away the cold
Of withered life that's past so grey and old
Cause all the pain that's filled these eyes you see
Has made them bleed just recently
Tears that made me
Ashamed to be me
But that gave me strength to see me
Made a spark that
Lit the dark and let me shine

Time to see, believe this in me
This pain that I feel deep inside

Cause it's time when you come together, peel together
Better now so do it now or never
I fall asleep to freeways far from here
Spend half the night just drinking beer
From this day on shall be the words
My flesh and bone shall make it heard
Don't you test I'll have to mess with you
Do my best so fuck the rest of you
One of these days you'll see I've always been right

Time to see, believe this in me
This pain that I feel deep inside

I can feel this pain is real
I never wanted anything from you, you

And it makes me glad
When I see the sun
And it makes me sad
When you fell my one
And I thank my god
Got a girl like you
And I thank my god
Did you save me

Time to see, believe this in me
This pain that I feel deep inside




10. American High

I was that kid sittiní over in the corner,
Smelling with a shit-eating grin
And I was that kid smiliní in the back of class
ĎCause Iím fryiní on mescaline
I was that kid drinkiní 40ís on the bleachers
Getting drunk after school
Gettingí home too late, falliní on my face,
Way too drunk to skate
And actiní a fool

I was that kid never doing good at
Nothing except for maybe at P.E.
And I was that kid getting bullied by the
Filipinos rollin with abt
Me and my friends reading
The satanic bible thinking we should start a band
Cutting class to jam, cutting class to jam
In my dadís garage we learned to

Act a fool Ė donít need to be cool
Pissed of too and breaking the rules
Mama told me stay in school
Donít rock Ďn roll
But this is my american high

I was that kid that was crank-calling
Your girlfriend, couldnít get a goddamn date
And I was that kid that was
Getting hella busted for pissiní on the bart train
I fuckiní hated school except for hanging out with my
Friends, the outcast that was
Startiní up a band
Fremont was the town, California-bound,
Bay area sound, taught me to

Act a fool Ė donít need to be cool
Pissed of too and breaking the rules
Mama told me stay in school
Donít rock Ďn roll
But this is my american high

Iím that kid you tried to punk in English class
Now Iím in a band and youíre kissing myÖ

Asteroids beat out homework
Slayer beat out Zeppelin
Not the sharpest noggin
Thatís why Iím in this band

And what you got against me, I donít need a new job
What you got against me, Iíll get by on my own
Telliní me Iím never getting by from my songs
I love it when youíre proven wrong

Act a fool Ė donít need to be cool
Pissed of too and breaking the rules
Mama told me stay in school
Donít rock Ďn roll
But this is my american high

Act a fool Ė donít need to be cool
Break the rules
Cause this is my american high




11. Nothing Left

Withered away I see it
Every day complacent
Desecrates the fabric of lies
Emptiness fills inside me
Bitterness has denied me
Faith like this well
Could I really give a shit

When I feel it
Come falling
I turn you away

I am the things that you fear
My leap of faith without a sound
Don't push my back against the wall
Yes I have strength will never fall, will never

Withered inside
This soul has petrified
As concrete fills the skies
This life is disarray
Consequence every action
Brings violence from the passions
Loneliness the emotion withering inside

When I feel it
Come falling
I turn you away

I am the things that you fear
My leap of faith without a sound
Don't push my back against the wall
Yes I have strength will never fall

I feel around the fall is on
For so long I've been away..away
For years to now been holdin' on
For so long I've been away..away

I have nothing left for nobody else
I have nothing left for nobody

When I feel it
Come falling
I turn you away

I am the things that you fear
My leap of faith without a sound
Don't push my back against the wall
Yes I have strength will never fall




12. The Burning Red

I see the sun begins to rise
And I'm wounded I've seen the world from painted eyes
That I'm crying through I watch the darkness hit the tides
And confide in... hold on

I'm falling
Can't breathe anymore
The ocean has opened
These scars need to heal
Caress the needle prick in my eye
The tears fell like rain
I've rode the phoenix as she glides
And I've gone insane I've seen the light of suicide
And I'm dying hold on,

I'm falling
Can't breathe anymore
And the ocean has opened
These scars need to heal
Hold on I'm falling, can't reach... reach...
Colder and colder just hold onto me




13. Davidian

Blind man ask me forgiveness
I won't deny myself
Disrespect you have given
Your suffering's my wealth
I feed off pain, force fed to love it
And now I swallow whole
I'll never live in the past
Let freedom ring with a shotgun blast

Burn my fist to the concrete
My fear is my strength
Power, rage unbound because
Been pounded by the streets
Cyanide blood burns down the skyline
Hatred is purity
The bullet connects at last
Let freedom ring with a shotgun blast

Scarred
Pour the salt in the wound
Unscarred




14. Supercharger

Electricity is pulsing
Though our veins a charge is racing
A chain reaction through the four of us,
To you, will make
The transformers begin converting into overdrive

Power surge now exploding through
Energy, filling the ominous void within you
No need to live your life in the gap
Got what you need right here on lightning tap, so

Charge me, charge you
Charge us, charge through
Amplify, terrify
Supercharger electrifies

Getting under skin, weíre like a rash
Spreading over your body
We are the itch you scratch
That doesnít seem to go away
Protons, neutrons, electrons
Synchronizing into one

In sheer power all will pale
Heaviness off the Richter scale
Forever crushing the competition in their tracks
100,000 volts we blast, so

Charge me, charge you
Charge us, charge through
Amplify, terrify
Supercharger electrifies

Your Ė little sticks of dynamite
Weíre Ė the fuse and weíre the light

Electricity is pulsing
Through our veins a charge is racing
A chain reaction from the four of us,
To you, has made
It crystal clear weíll win this war
DestinyÖvictory

Braveheart-mindset, full attack
Kamikaze, never look back
In this war, a victory is if you feel this too
You feed off us, and we feed off you, so

Charge me, charge you
Charge us, charge through
Amplify, terrify
Supercharger electrifies

Charge me, charge you
Charge us, charge through
Supercharger
Supercharger
Supercharger
Supercharger
