Lyrics

Texas Chainsaw Massacre

Written By: Damon Alexander

scream but no one will hear
and eyes through sewn human skin
stalk prey through the dusk and dawn
the sound of the butcher's saw
will drown the innocent's pleas

welcome to texas chainsaw massacre
home of the redneck sledge hammer slaughterer
middle of nowhere, no one knows they're there
they'll have to learn to fend for themselves

please, run for your life
because he won't let you go
kin of the demented man
have arranged for a dinner plan
and she is on the menu

welcome to texas chainsaw massacre
home of the redneck sledge hammer slaughterer
they took a wrong turn down a country road
and only one of them will get out alive

she must fight to be
free from the family
or be cannibalized....

Pink Flamingos

Written By: Damon Alexander

kidnapped minx hitchhikers
channing's seed's in them
muster filthy lucre
from the lesbians

baby trafficking
school yard heroin
divine eats dogs shit
in pink flamingos

crackers drop that chicken
mama wants to give you a lickin'
cookie can't be trusted
grandma loves her eggs

baby trafficking
school yard heroin
divine eats dogs shit
in pink flamingos

the filthiest person alive in none other than miss divine - babs johnson
but the marble's seek to take the coveted title away - be forewarned
that title belongs to her and she is capable of mass murder

baby trafficking
school yard heroin
divine eats dogs shit
in pink flamingos

filthy is her style
the filthiest alive
godless diatribes
spew forth from divine

pink flamingos

King Kong Escapes

Written By: Damon Alexander

whoa,whoa,whoa,whoa
a sub from the united nations
whoa,whoa,whoa,whoa
surfaced near his home for repairs
King Kong escapes from his secluded island lair
beware
whoa,whoa,whoa,whoa
a powerful source of radiation
whoa,whoa,whoa,whoa
the target of a rogue nation
King Kong escapes from his arctic prison lair
beware
a 60 foot gorilla from Mondo Island
is taken to the Arctic to mine for Element X
by order of Madame Piranha
whoa,whoa,whoa,whoa
Who's plan has gone wrong
whoa,whoa,whoa,whoa
he'll activate MechaniKong
Tokyo's not safe
King Kong Escapes
from the grip of Dr. Hu

The X From Outer Space

Written By: Damon Alexander

A-A-B-GAMMA travels into space to investigate the mysterious happenings around mars
six previous missions failed with total loss of life and all reported a U.F.O. in the stars
earth's scientists never thought the study of this strange pod, may kill all

Monster Defense can't handle
the giant monster Guilala
indestructible horror
but it ain't over 'til it's over
a secret weapon awaits
A-A-B-GAMMA in outer space
the substance guilalanium
may be their only chance

F-A-F-C determined atomic energy regenerates the chaotic force in the beast
Michiko seems to have a sorted past with Captain Sano, will Lisa no longer be the third wheel
earth's scientists never thought the study of this strange pod, may kill all

Monster Defense can't handle
the giant monster Guilala
indestructible horror
but it ain't over 'til it's over
a secret weapon awaits
A-A-B-GAMMA in outer space
the substance guilalanium
may be their only chance

The X From Outer Space
The X From Outer Space
The X From Outer Space

Commando

Written By: Damon Alexander

a retired super soldier cares for his daughter
he can carry a tree with one arm through the forest
Curby had tried to warn him about the dangers
John ends up tranquilized and they take his child hostage

the kidnappers know John Matrix is the best
he has 11 hours to dispose of Velasquez
that...or the terrorists will slit poor Jenny's throat

he said he'd kill Sully last but he was lying
he dropped him from a cliff and stole his yellow sports car
back at the sunspot hotel he pulled a heavy
he warned the bad guy he eats green berets for breakfast

the kidnappers know John Matrix is the best
he has 11 hours to dispose of Velasquez
that...or the terrorists will slit poor Jenny's throat

The villain in the chain mail shirt
looks fat compared to steroid girth
of super soldier John Matrix
but Bennet is still determined
to shoot John right between the eyes
but gets caught up in a knife fight
and ends up wearing a steel pipe
and super soldier quips, "let off some steam!"

The Story of Ricky

Written By: Damon Alexander

Ricky displays the five bullets embedded in his chest as souvenirs
of the vengeance he exacted on the triad bosses when his girl disappeared
in jail the gang of four enforce the family rules
the assistant warden fears the influence of Ricky on the other men

hell has manifested here, hell is the place these men live

Go - avenge Ying's glory, that's the story of Ricky Ho
Fight for justice and right through the darkness Go-Ricky-Go

Silly Lung and Wildcat are the first to fall prey to the street justice of Ricky
Uncle told him to prepare to be a messenger of hell and Lai Wong agreed
Hai awaits Ricky atop Kuang's crucified corpse
his intestines will be used to choke the life from Ricky as a last resort

hell has manifested here, hell is the place these men live

Go - avenge Ying's glory, that's the story of Ricky Ho
Fight for justice and right through the darkness Go-Ricky-Go

his warlike, vigilante spirit can't be subdued
what kind of demon are you?

Ricky killed a man
but he's a good man
he fight for all men
triumph Ricky Ho
buried 7 days
mouth full of razor blades
flute taken away
triumph Ricky Ho
burn the opium
kill Huang Chuan
grind the warden
triumph Ricky Ho
freedom lies beyond
these private prison walls
and he will lead them
triumph Ricky Ho

Nosferatu

Written By: Damon Alexander

Nosferatu, in unhallowed ground, he was buried
Nosferatu, emerges from the crypt in which he sleeps
Nosferatu, is offended by the light
a creature of the night

what matter if it cost Jon pain and some blood
and Transylvania is the land of phantoms
but the count is obsessed with Harker's love
and Jon boy draws the line when it comes to nina

Nosferatu, will carry his coffin through the street
Nosferatu, was born to earth in 1443
Nosferatu, is not even alive
he's a vampire
the darkest prince of night

Wrath of Khan

Written By: Damon Alexander

exiled from earth
abandoned long ago
seeds of hate germinate
madness motivates him
he lies in wait
and they feel the wrath of khan
eugenic wars
the past for kirk
is still fresh with khan
genesis project is
an alluring weapon
in able hands
and they feel the wrath of khan
chekov is not himself
his mind is controlled
and his will consumed
an eel inside his ear
will drive him insane
and traitorous
and they feel the wrath of khan
the wrath of khan came before the search for spock
the wrath of khan came before the search for spock
