Blackout 03:03
Blackout I’ve got blood on my hands and I can’t understand what I’m doing here The blood stains on my shirt are from someone I hurt; that is what I fear I don’t know what I’ve done, should I get up and run, if so where will I go Who can I call to make sense of it all; I need to stay on my toes Blackout, blackout, blackout Blackout, blackout, blackout My memory is gone, I need to stay calm if I’m gonna get out of this I can’t remember my name, or from where I came, I need to get to the bottom of it Gotta ditch these clothes and hope somebody knows, just who I am Finding someone to trust is an absolute must so I don’t fall victim Blackout, blackout, blackout Blackout, blackout, blackout Made it out to the street, walked a couple feet, passed a newspaper stand My worst fears came true, when I saw the news, I’m a wanted man The headline read; four found dead, suspect remains free I turned to run but was met with a gun and strict orders to freeze I didn’t put up a fight when they read me my rights and told me the charge The evidence was strong, and it wouldn’t long, ‘til I was behind bars I couldn’t deny that I committed the crime, but I couldn’t remember why The verdict was read, the sentence was death, now it’s just a matter of time Blackout, blackout, blackout Blackout, blackout, blackout Blackout, blackout, blackout Blackout, blackout, blackout

Glory or Death Time’s running out, countdown from nine It’s make or break, the end of the line No mission of mercy, it’s time to close Put up, shut up, or start heading home Glory or death, it’s up to you Get ready to fight, didn’t come here to lose Glory or death, it’s up to you Get ready to fight, didn’t come here to lose Body count’s on the rise, who’s keeping score This ain’t a game, this is a war Don’t retreat when the going gets tough Keep on punching ‘til they’ve given up Glory or death, it’s up to you Get ready to fight, didn’t come here to lose Glory or death, it’s up to you Get ready to fight, didn’t come here to lose The future is ours The future is ours The future is ours The future is ours There’s no second place, there’s only first Let’s leave the field victorious Lace up your boots, it’s time to start Swords in the air, hands on your hearts Glory or death, it’s up to you Get ready to fight, didn’t come here to lose Glory or death, it’s up to you Get ready to fight, didn’t come here to lose The future is ours The future is ours The future is ours The future is ours

Assassinate Me I think it’s time I represent So I’m gonna run for President It’s a good job that’ll pay the bills And I’ll live rent free near Capitol Hill My policies will be extreme Like no President you’ve ever seen Soon I’ll be the one you’ll hate Conspire to assassinate Gimme your best shot Gimme your best shot Assassinate me Assassinate me I’ll breakdown some of my ideas That’ll make the Reps jump out their chairs My stance on war, it’s real clear Mess with us and I’ll declare Pro life’s not even worth the fight What’s done is done, wrong or right Too big to fail, I don’t care Run your ships tight or set sail Gimme your best shot Gimme your best shot Assassinate me Assassinate me Welfare benefits will be cut If you’re out of work more than a month Get off your ass and get a job No more free food for you fat slobs Elect me, you’ll see a change Not just a slogan for some campaign Out of all the candidates I’m the one you’ll assassinate Gimme your best shot Shoot, shoot, shoot Get the gun Shoot, shoot, shoot Assassinate me Assassinate me Assassinate me Assassinate me

Jail 02:58
Jail I miss the grime, I miss the filth; I miss the fear of being killed I miss the screams I’d hear at night; the insanely brutal fights The drugs I took to get high; I even miss my prison wife These aren’t just some made up tales; it’s what life was like in jail Scams, schemes, cons, and broken dreams Choose a side and join a team If you don't you'll end up used Broken, beaten, and abused For many years I called it home The only one I’ve ever known Jail Jail It has been about a year since I was paroled from there My time away has led me to a state of normalcy But I need danger and some thrills or I’ll never be fulfilled For most it is their biggest fear, but I want to go back to jail Scams, schemes, cons, and broken dreams Choose a side and join a team If you don't you'll end up used Broken, beaten, and abused For many years I called it home The only one I’ve ever known Jail Jail I have used all my free time to plan my next mortal crime This will be my greatest feat; one I won't get to repeat No longer will I feel denied once I get back inside I won’t be gettin’ out on bail; my sentence will be life in jail Scams, schemes, cons, and broken dreams Choose a side and join a team If you don't you'll end up used Broken, beaten, and abused For many years I called it home The only one I’ve ever known Jail Jail Jail Jail

No Regrets 01:59
No Regrets You say I’m a liar, you say I’m a cheat Say what you want; I’ll still land on my feet I’ve sacrificed for you way more than I should Thanks would be nice, though you never would Only out for myself; I’ve been accused Believe what you want, but it’s not the truth I gave all I had to make this thing work And all for what you treat me like a jerk No Regrets, no regrets, no regrets We started way back when we were fifteen I thought for sure we’d achieve all our dreams Broken down slowly, year after year Our friendship has faded; I’m not shedding a tear Each time we went up, right back we’d go down It’s no surprise we’ve crashed to the ground All’s said and done; add this to the list This’ll be one more of our hits that missed No Regrets, no regrets, no regrets No Regrets, no regrets, no regrets Regrets are a waste and don’t do any good But if there was a case, this time I would Regrets are a waste and don’t do any good This time it’s over, this time for good No Regrets, no regrets, no regrets No Regrets, no regrets, no regrets No Regrets, no regrets, no regrets No Regrets, no regrets, no regrets

Brain in a Jar Johnny’s wife was dead and couldn’t be revived But he was determined to keep her alive Acting out of desperation Johnny performed an operation He cut her head with a kitchen knife And removed her brain to save her life He wasn’t too sure that it would work But then her body began to jerk He found her dead so he cut her head Hid her brain in a jar under the bed He found her dead so he cut her head Hid her brain in a jar under the bed She rose from the bed where she lay Desperately searching for her brain She scanned the room, where did it go Johnny hid her brain, but she didn’t know Johnny, Johnny, please help me I need to find my brain Johnny, Johnny, please help me Without it I just don’t feel the same Johnny didn’t respond to her call Under the bed he hid curled up in a ball Afraid of what his wife might say If she knew, he hid her brain He found her dead so he cut her head Hid her brain in a jar under the bed He found her dead so he cut her head Hid her brain in a jar under the bed He found her dead so he cut her head Hid her brain in a jar under the bed He found her dead so he cut her head Hid her brain in a jar Brain in a jar Brain in a jar Under the bed

about

Gotham City Mashers Queens, New York

Gotham City Mashers are a "real live bunch" from Astoria, Queens that formed in 2009 by four longtime friends who wanted to make music like the bands they grew up idolizing. If Keith Morris, Joe Perry, Cliff Burton, and Chuck Biscuits created a super group, they would probably sound a lot like Gotham City Mashers. ... more
