about

The brainchild of Byzantine frontman Chris Ojeda.
All rhythm and bass guitar along with most vocal duties performed by Ojeda. This record is dedicated to these bands and the time period in which they were written. Thank you for the inspiration. I would not have made it through Jr. High without it...

Track Name: Brainwashed
Radio
An insidious form
Helping shape thoughts
Making You conform,
Programming Music
Easy Listening
Helps you to achieve
That moronic grin
Playing you
Regurgitated Pap
Selling products
That are mostly
Crap
Rarely hearing music
You wanna hear
It has an effect
Over all these years
Why don't you think for yourself???
Live in this self made Hell....
Television
The idiot tube
Helps to raise our
Children as fools
Watch the news
They only want to see
Our awareness is
Limited by network
VPs
Moronic sit-coms
One sided news
Alter your feeling
Give you conformist
Views
Why can't you get that
Garbage out of your
Head
You're better off to
Read a good book
Instead...
Why Can't You Think For Yourself?????
Live in this self made Hell....
Newspapers
What do they say??
Not much I think
When they want
School kids to pray
Getting some facts from
Some daily news
You hate the system
But adhere to it's views
Blaming the dead
'Cause they can't
Complain
Shielding officials
Holding them
Above the blame
You better wake up and see
What's plain to see
Or end up a willing part of the machine.....
Track Name: People of the Lie
Don't look at me as if I didn't know
Your vanity is all you ever show
What you believe and advocate
Fanatic dogma recycled from yesterday

Got a master plan
Genocide
Can't understand
People of the lie

You are to me the waste of flesh and blood
I'd love to see you buried in the mud
And when you die no one will she'd a tear
So pass me by don't need your hatred here

Got a master plan
Genocide
Can't understand
People of the lie

Prejudice, intolerance, eye for an eye

[SOLO - FRANK]

You cannot hide behind those empty claims
Your racist pride is nothing but a game
And you will lose for right is on the side
Of those who choose to fight for humankind

Got a master plan
Genocide
Can't understand
People of the lie

You can't believe
Don't be deceived
Track Name: The Conjuring
Welcome to out sanguinary sect of worship.
Feel at home in our black conventicle,
As we anathematise
All of those who oppose us.
Don't summon the devil,
Don't call the priests,
If you need the strength
The conjuring. Obey!!!
Behold the flames rise
From the compass' cardinal points.
Burn the sacred oil,
And, with the ashes you'll annoint.
Arrange the symbols,
Of the wizard, and, magician.
Light the candles,
Place the parchment paper in position.
Between it's leaves place
The lash from a black cat's eye,
A straw of a broom,
Fold, and, burn, and, centralise.
Don't summon the devil,
Don't call the priests,
If you need the strength,
The conjuring.
I am the devil's advocate,
A salesman, if you will
You know my name. [You know my name]
I met your father years ago,
Gave him what he'd please.
He called my name, you'll do the same.
I'm claiming what is mine by right,
It's time to close the deal.
You're bought and sold, bought and sold.
Come join me in my infernal depths,
Mephisto's hall of fame.
I've got your soul, I've got your soul.
The conjuring. Obey!!!
Track Name: Greenhouse Effect
Fools the ones who stray, the rain forest burns away
Know what to believe, this is the air we breathe
So the world we know is dying slow in south america
Flames are burning down, all the trees to the ground

Time is running low, we can't stay no more
Wealth these people see, fight for eternity
Lies they televise paid by the government
There on! it lingers on
And they don't even care if they...

Seal the planet's fate
Crimes they perpetrate
Wasting precious land
It's time to take a stand

Our only hope to breathe again
To stop the madness closing in
What will we do when all is lost
Environmental holocaust...

Our only hope to breathe again
To stop the madness closing in
What will we do when all is lost
Environmental holocaust...

Foes these people go, someone destroyed their home
Plagued with disease, left praying on their knees
Laws protect the land, social justice in demand
Smoke it fills the air into the atmosphere
Now it's time to see a cycle of a tragedy
On! it lingers on, and they don't even care if they...

Seal the planet's fate
Crimes they perpetrate
Wasting precious land
It's time to take a stand

Our only hope to breathe again
To stop the madness closing in
What will we do when all is lost
Environmental holocaust...

Our only hope to breathe again
To stop the madness closing in
What will we do when all is lost
Environmental holocaust...
Track Name: Allison Hell
["a young girl, terrified, there's something out there. but is it real? it must be, because it's watching her. her pleas for comfort and reassurance are ignored, and soon, all she has left is her imagination... and that's the most terrifying thing of all."]

Alice, isn't it frightening?
Alice, aren't you scared?
Alice, isn't it wonderful?
Living life afraid
Don't look around the corner
I might be lurking there
Under the bed at night
You're up till dawn again

Alison hell, your mind begins to fold
Alison hell, aren't you growing cold?
Alison hell, you are looking blue
Alice in hell, what else can you do?

Alice

I begin my rule, life hideous in your mind
Crying out, you've lost your doll
It isn't worth a dime

Alison hell, your mind begins to fold
Alison hell, aren't you growing cold?
Alison hell, what are you looking for?
Alice in hell, soon I close the door

Sitting in the corner, you are naked and alone
No one listened to your fears, you've created me

Alice, isn't it frightening?
Alice, aren't you scared?
I was killed at birth
I shoot this final scene
You're in the basement
You're trapped insanity

Alison hell, what were you looking for?
Alison hell, as I close the door
Alison hell, here you shall dwell
Alison hell, Alice dwells in hell

Alice

Alice
Alison
Alice
In hell

Goodbye
Track Name: True Colors
Opportunities arise, open your eyes don't decline. Open the door. What's right for you may not be what's right for me. Ultimatums shown us or them I don't know. Open the door. Take our hands cause you know we're your friends. You call me a friend, but stab me in the back again. From this deed now I learn. On you, my back I never turn. What was mine was always yours. But you're slammin' all the doors. True colors my are growing bright. But you're still stuck in a grey life. Jealousy, can't you see what it's done. Open the doors. I thought I knew, what kind of friend are you. Honesty flows through me - with purity. Open the doors. Once again, we were friends, we're through. Because of you and your TRUE COLORS. Let them shine.
Track Name: Climbin' the Walls
I know, you know
Something's gotta break
If this shit don't come to a halt
There's not much more I can take
Wheels are spinning, lawyers are grinning
To see what I'm gonna do
Minds arranging, I'm tired of changin'
Something's gotta pull me through

Club owners say, "Didn't make your pay,
I think we must got took"
Don't fuck with me, I'm glad to see
You're smarter than you look,
No vacancy, no vacancy, everywhere I stop
When you see me doing, 83 in a 55
I might kill a cop
'Cause I'm

Climbin' the walls standin' on the edge
Climbin' the walls insanity's the ledge
Climbin' the walls till I can't catch my breath
Climbin' the walls I'm gettin' closer to death

I ain't got no money and that ain't funny
Check is in the mail
Agents are barkin', the fire ain't sparkin'
And I'm livin' in a private hell
People say you gotta pay
To play in a winners game
Well I am me, a lunatics friend
And nothing else stays the same
'Cause I'm

Climbin' the walls standin' on the edge
Climbin' the walls insanity's the ledge
Climbin' the walls till I can't catch my breath
Climbin' the walls I'm gettin' closer to death
Track Name: Legions of Death
Warriors of Sheol ride the storm
Coming to retrieve the human forms
Black cloak rider, force of sin
Mission to destroy white magic's kin

Curse their holy souls
In fire they will die
Good comes to an end
Steal the power from their eyes

High priests pray to their one above
But the winged beasts of evil kill their loved
Phantoms of eternal hell watch on
As darkness slays, light's now gone

Lives of earthen tame
Torn to shreds alive
Taken by the blade
Laughing at their cries

Evil stalks the lives of men, they can't be saved
Hapless victims falling hard to meet their grave
Terror reigns, insanity lives in human fear
Blackened world, malicious souls, hell is here
Specters hunting freeze you with their hateful eyes
Luring victims to their death, petrified
Sacrifice to lord of evil, glorified
For merciless onslaught, all must die

City lies in flame as troops march on
Pillaging and plundering from dawn till dusk till dawn
Turing the earth into eternal fire
Legions of death will leave you crucified
Track Name: World in a World
I, Being The Judge Of This Legal Court
Motion For The Accused To Arise.
Stand Up Boy, Here's The End Of Your Life.
Now All Be In Awe Of My Upper Hand
And You Watch As I Detain.
I Swallow Time, Twenty Years
Of Your Life, I Have Obtained.
Sorry In A Cell, With The Rest Of The Dogs
I Do Nothing But Wait.
I'm Being Fed Shit, Tormented, Such Hate.
Bashed, Beaten, Battered, Some Inmates Here
Just Cannot Defend Their Lives.
That For Me, The Luxury In Here Is Only To Die.
[ Solo: Flynn ]
Now You're In, Here To Stay
Life Sentence, Convicted, And Now You
Must Pay.
So Watch Your Back And All That You've Got.
Stealers Take, Killers Kill, But Usually In The Dark
Cold And Empty Grey Matter Of Your Brain
Would Spray.
Unpleasant Taste It Leaves In Your Mouth.
This Place Is Hell, This Place Is What We Call.
World In A World
And You Fear This Fucking!
World In A World
Guilty You'll Rot.
[ Solo: Demmel ]
Warden Hates Because He's Playing The Part
He Makes His Point By Turning Guns
On The Unarmed.
Or Solitary Confinement They'll Keep You
You Resist And
A Battered Mess, And Oh I Regret
When You're In Here Slop Is All You'll Be Fed.
And When You're Tired And Needing Some Sleep
The Cement Floor Is All They Feel You Need.
World In A World
And You Will Fear This Fucking.
World In A World
Guilty You'll Rot.
World In A World
Held Out Of All Sight.
World In A World.
To Be Here Is To Die!
