I Thirst 03:37
I THIRST Here I am – in front of you Nailed to this wooden cross The son of God - Sentenced to death By the law of the man Father, forgive them For they know not what they do Father, forgive them For they know not what they do My own death is a new life A remedy to the Adam’s transgression The divine must be killed To raise the human grace I thirst I thirst I thirst I thirst My God, why have you forsaken me ? It is - It is finished Father, into thy hands I committ my spirit

I’m tied - I’m tied to a gun In some minutes I will blow away My head will go straight up into the air My body will be destroyed in thousand pieces I feel so upset Am I living A sort of nightmare? It is so unreal And yet so true That dark feeling So desperately near That cold shiver At the Nawab’s sign I can – I can hardly understand The stories around the Devil’s wind I feel – I can only feel Sorrow – for those about to die The thick cloud of smoke Will issue From the muzzles Of the cannon The smell of the flesh Will pervade the air That pungent odour of blood And burnt human flesh Will it be flavored By our ripped souls?

Tonight My boy will die By electric chair My God! He’s only fourteen years old! When all We came to find The missing girls We couldn’t even imagine What was about to be The day George Burke found them in that soggy ditch I felt so bad and very sad The two little girls so brutally murdered And their killer - still out there A hole in Mary Emma’s skull Two inch-long cut above her eyebrow Seven blows on Betty June’s head A skull nothing but a mass of crushed bones We’re living sad days in Alcolu We’re living sad days in Alcolu Sad days in Alcolu We’re living sad days in Alcolu Sad days In Alcolu Sad days The day He was arrested and accused The entire world – collapsed under my feet! And when He confessed All his crimes A sort of dizziness Invaded me From that night I couldn’t sleep nor think I feel so drained, tired and powerless All this sounds Absurd to me! Oh my Lord, What’s your purpose? Now that you son are going to pass away And the chair will leave you dead and mouth foaming I will pray for your soul I’ll try to pray for yout soul! We’re living sad days in Alcolu We’re living sad days in Alcolu Sad days in Alcolu We’re living sad days in Alcolu Sad days In Alcolu Sad days

I’m here in Caishikou The execution field in Beijing And I’m going to attend An execution by lingchi The convict is taken to the post He is a thin young man They’re tying him by a rope And by his polytail He’s still immune of all wounds, But his gruesome journey has just begun A pale grin across his face An otherworldly plastered smile Through the stage of lingchi Through what you can only imagine A transfigured phantom Looking to the sky The Chief executor starts untying Convict's arms, in order to carve them The executioner's blade Slowly enters into the convict's left knee The victim’s face seems "extatic" His hair "risen" Limbs have cut off one at time Large chunks of skin are removed from the chest Working on the right leg Desarticulating it at knee level Next to the final step The executioner raises his knife And stabs the convict To the heart

The Outsider 03:42
The sentence From the judge Is arrived Capital death by Guillotine The fact That the sentence Had been read out At eight o’clock Rather than at five o’clock And the fact that it might have been Completely different And that it had been decided Upon by men Who change their underwear And that it had been credited To so vague an entity As the French (Or German, or Chinese) people All these things Really seemed to detract Considerably From the seriousness Of such a decision I opened myself To the gentle indifference Of the world I had only a little time left And I didn't want to waste it on God I didn't want to waste it on God I didn't want to waste it on God I didn't want to waste it on God I didn't want to waste it on God If something is going to happen to me I want to be there I want to be there I want to be there I want to be there I want to be there I want to be there I want to be there I want to be there I want to be there Be there

Limerick Man 03:30
Michael was found guilty Of the rape and murder of a nurse Sister Katie Cooper Aged 64 Walking back To the hospital On the Dublin road She was attacked Raped and killed By the blind drunk man No insanity As claimed the defense The clods of grass in her mouth Discarded the argument Sentenced to death Despite the fact His young wife Was expecting a child Sentenced to death Despite the fact The victim’s family Had petioned to court Farewell, Limerick man You pay your moment of blackness Farewell, Limerick man Farewell, Limerick man Farewell, Limerick man You pay your moment of blackness Farewell, Limerick man Farewell, Limerick man Sentenced to death Despite the fact The victim’s family Had petioned to court Sentenced to death Despite the fact His young wife Was expecting a child

Bloody Babs 04:03
What do you know to fight for a better life? Fighting tooth and nail? I can only see contempt on your empty faces You like peeking through the keyhole Bad-mouthing with your hair done Nothing bad but stay away from me I’d like you to be here in my place Just to see if you’re afraid to die Desperation is a familiar word to me On the edge, knowing not what to do Good people are always so sure they’re right For you that know all my mistakes by heart Tomorrow will be just another day You, good people, are always so sure you’re right I’m here, lost in in this holding cell Praying with a Father I’ve never met Why all these delays? Why do they torture me like this? The phone is ringing and ringing again Now they say me it’s time to go And I realize, now I realize it’s over I’d like to wear a blindfold I don’t want to have to look at people Desperation is a familiar word to me On the edge, knowing not what to do Good people are always so sure they’re right Good people are always so sure they’re right

Here where the seagulls glide Winging across the foam Here, where the brave ships ride Here would I make my home A tumble-down nook by the sea With someone that I can love And who loves me Happy as the winds are free In my dear little tumble-down nook by the sea Here, here on a shell-strewn shore Here would I find my rest Dreaming for evermore With one I love the best With one will be so dear to me With one – By the sea A tumble-down nook by the sea With someone that I can love And who loves me Happy as the winds are free In my dear little tumble-down nook by the sea Here, here on a shell-strewn shore Here would I find my rest Dreaming for evermore Here where the seagulls glide Winging across the foam Here, where the brave ships ride Here would I make my home

The end of the world is near and I - the enlighted one I will lead you, my followers, To survive the Apocalypse We of the Supreme Truth know The U.S. will hasten the Armageddon By starting World War III With the Japanese forces The predicted war Will start in November 1995 Poison gas attacks Continue since 1988 We are sprayed by helicopters And other aircraft wherever we go The use of poison gases - such as sarin - Were clearly indicated The hour of my death Has been foretold The gas phenomenon Has already happened The nuclear bomb The nuclear bomb will come next In 1997 In 1997, Armageddon will break out In order to prevent these atrocities Before, before it’s too late It’s time to react Death to the blackhearted aristocrats Our team is now capable to produce Thousands kilograms of sarin a year One can kill another – One can kill Another human being Who continues to committ Evil deeds And is thus destined to go to hell And is thus destined to go to hell And is thus destined to go to hell

To the Core 05:03
A wiseman said the man is born free And everywhere he is in chains To the core To the core To the core To the core Narrow mountain valleys are on my way Sorrounded by high mountains on both sides I’m trying to get across’em in heavy rain But watch your step, man, the ground’s so slippery To the core To the core To the core To the core To the core To the core To the core To the core I’m trying to get across life in heavy rain But watch your step, man, the ground’s so slippery Do you know the story of John Babbacombe Lee the man who survived three attempts at hanging him?
