YOUTH CULTURE FOR SALE
(Record company cheeses mumble
possible promotional strategy?)
There's nothing so ridiculous
As a square peg shoved in a round hole
Life is so ridiculous
You're a square peg shoved in a round hole!
Living, living, living just as you're told
Your mind is up on the auction block
You're life's up to the highest bidder

Youth culture's for sale
Your youth culture's for sale

Corporate greed can always buy
Corporate greed can always win
And you let it, you let it win
This year's fashion - this year's hero
This year's fashion - last year's hero?
Your mind's up on the auction block
Your life's up on the auction block

Don't you know?
This scene that scene this scene
Don't you know?
A scene's a scene, a scene's a scene
Life ain't no movie show
Youth culture for sale
Your youth culture's for sale!


BALANCE OF TERROR
30 minutes is all it will take
A nuclear flash, the final mistake
30 minutes - rain hell from above
You say it won't come, you say it's a bluff
30 minutes to watch your family die
They say it's just a bargain, we say it's a lie
Peeling off skin, falling out hair
If the fireball don't get you, there'll be death in the air!

They call it balance of power (x3)
We call it balance of terror

30 minutes - that's all it will take
A nuclear blast, the final mistake
30 minutes - rain hell from above
They say it won't come, they say it's a bluff
Deformed children innocent pawns
Radiation legacy goes on and on

They call it balance of power
We call it balance of terror
Murder!!
They call it balance of power
We call it balance of terror!!


PERSONAL HELL
I built my own personal hell
By ideas I put in my brain
I built my own personal hell
It's not bricks it's not chains
I built my own personal hell
By the ideas I entertain
I built my own personal hell
It's my puzzle it's my game

Personal! Null!

I limit myself by my closed mind
I think I'm so rad but I'm so often blind
I limit myself by my weak will
To do anything that I feel
No regrets for where I've been
Just curiousity about what I might have seen!

Personal!! Null!!

RITUAL
Make it loud, loud 'n loud 'n loud
Make it fast, make it easy to hide in a crowd
Make it easy to predict what I can do
Make it easy to predict what I will hear
Make it fast, make it fast 'n fast 'n loud
Make it easy to hide inside a crowd
I ain't no queer, I'm a hardcore man!
I like to jump around with a bunch of sweaty men!
I like to jump an' bash an' jump an' bash and hurt!!
I like to jump and bash with a bunch of sweaty men!
There ain't no women, ain't no women dancing here!!
Ain't no queer, I'm a hardcore man
I like to jump around an' kick an' hurt if I can
Make it fast, fast 'n fast 'n loud
Make it easy to hide inside a crowd
Make it easy to predict what I will do
Make it easy to predict what I will hear
I ain't no queer, I'm a hardcore man
I like to jump around with a bunch of sweaty men!
But there ain't no women, ain't no women dancing here!!
LET THE NIGHT ROAR (WITH US)
Who sold the symbol of patriotism
During Vietnam?
Not those who said bring 'em back
Alive while we can
Their love for their people
Was just as plain as day
Those claiming the flag made profits
As boys were slain

Let the night roar with us!
Let the night roar with us!
You can't cut us down
And you can't cut us out!
We're in nobody's back pocket now!

If there ever was a decent meaning
To the cross and the church
Now those symbols are stolen
And twisted much worse
They care little for the diet
Of kids in our schools
Their family volues are simply
Make that family consume!

Sometimes I really just wanna go
An' pitch a fit
There's nothing what it seems
When it comes right down to it
They'll steal any symbol to confuse
Make profits advance
They'd even try to steal your manhood
Right out of your pants!


HANG 'EM HIGH
I wanna know things, I wanna know things
I wanna know things, what's going on?
I wanna read things, I wanna read things
I wanna read things, behind the scene
Know things about you and me
Know things we aren't told to see
Find out who's the keeper
An' learn to train my own eye
To know the difference between the yellow

I need to know things, I need to know things
I need to know things, what's going on?
I wanna read things, I wanna read things
I wanna read things before they're all banned
Know things about you and me
Know things from reality
The reality's not what you know
Ah there's a lot unknown

Who does control things? Who does control things?
Who does control things for you and me?
Who's got the reality? Who's got the reality?
Who's got the wire in my own way?
Know things 'bout you and me
And know things you haven't seen
Don't believe the lies you've seen
Fight to remain aware!
Learn, upset, learn, aware
Upset, upset - for me!

NOBODY RULES!
DOn't tell us how to look
Why don't you write a book
Who said you make the rules
Makes you a pack of fools
Why don't you rule yourself
Don't bother with nobody else

We say nobody rules!

If you want a leader you'd better learn to stand in line
Better learn how to lick behinds
Elite social cliques have missed the boat
We have a laugh as you learn to kiss ass

Why do you do what you do?
Do you ever stop and think why you do what you do?
Do you ever stop and think why you do what you do?
Why do you do what you do?
Do you know why?
