Killing is My Business... and Business Is Good![edit]

The Skull Beneath the Skin[edit]

  • "Prepare the patients scalp, To peel away/Metal caps his ears, He'll hear not what we say/Solid steel visor, Riveted cross his eyes/Iron staples close his jaws, So no one hears his cries."
  • A dose of metal you need
    to bang your head 'til you bleed
    It's time for snapping some neck
    Slashing, thrashing to Megadeth.

  • "It's Black Friday/Paint the devil on the wall."

My Last Words[edit]

Train of Consequences[edit]

  • "Set the ball a-rollin, / I'll be clicking off the miles, / On the train of consequences / My boxcar life o' style, / My thinking is derailed, / I'm tied up to the tracks, / The train of consequences / There ain't no turning back!"

Prince of Darkness[edit]

I'll Be There[edit]

The System Has Failed[edit]

The Scorpion[edit]

Back in the Day[edit]
