I waited patiently for the Lord
He inclined and heard my cry
He brought me up out of the pit
Out of the miry clay

I will sing, sing a new song
I will sing, sing a new song

He set my feet upon a rock
And made my footsteps firm
Many will see
Many will see and fear

with one of the of the most innovative guitarists to hit the scene since Jimi Hendrix...

this one of the very few songs he actually sings in his long history of instrumental releases, I guess he had something important to say.

Watching time go and feeling belief grow
Rise above the obstacles.
People beseech me but they will never teach me
Things that I already know.
Dreams that have shattered, may not have mattered
Take another point of view.
Doubts will arise though, like chasing the rainbow
I can tell a thing or two that's "true"
You've got to believe in yourself
Or no one will believe in you.
Imagination like a bird on the wing
Flying free for you to use.

I can't believe they stop and stare
And point their fingers doubting me.
Their disbelief suppresses them
But they're not blind, it's just that they won't see.

I'm a believer, I ain't no deceiver
Mountains move before my eyes.
Destiny planned out I don't need no handout
Speculation of the wise.

I'm a "believer" I ain't no deceiver !

Metal is my religion... God is my "truth"

Halls of Justice Painted Green
Money Talking
Power Wolves Beset Your Door
Hear Them Stalking
Soon You'll Please Their Appetite
They Devour
Hammer of Justice Crushes You
Overpower

The Ultimate in Vanity
Exploiting Their Supremacy
I Can't Believe the Things You Say
I Can't Believe
I Can't Believe the Price You Pay
Nothing Can Save You

Justice Is Lost
Justice Is Raped
Justice Is Gone
Pulling Your Strings
Justice Is Done
Seeking No Truth
Winning Is All
Find it So Grim
So True
So Real

Apathy Their Stepping Stone
So Unfeeling
Hidden Deep Animosity
So Deceiving
Through Your Eyes Their Light Burns
Hoping to Find
Inquisition Sinking You
With Prying Minds

The Ultimate in Vanity
Exploiting Their Supremacy
I Can't Believe the Things You Say
I Can't Believe
I Can't Believe the Price You Pay
Nothing Can Save You

Lady Justice Has Been Raped
Truth Assassin
Rolls of Red Tape Seal Your Lips
Now You're Done in
Their Money Tips Her Scales Again
Make Your Deal
Just What Is Truth?i Cannot Tell
Cannot Feel

The Ultimate in Vanity.

Bach is the most spiritual composer that ever existed. They don't make 'em like that anymore.

New F'n York ! cool band there eth... thanks.

Havin' a ball yup, here is my story so far upon arriving at ats... well sort of
but using some words from another now classic Thrash band from N.Y.
I've made a few mistakes
Don't think I'll ever live them down
I'm a prisoner of guilt
To my past forever bound

To follow the straight and narrow was always on my mind
But I let my guard down, I tripped the line
Never ever thought I would take a fall
Didn't think it would happen, no I was too strong

Forever haunted by a beast on my back
Deceitful temptation, a planned attack
I'm a victim of the evil one
Can't turn around, live my life on the run
My mind's plagued with guilt
'Til the day I die
I want to live a better life
Believe me I try
Prayed that the past would soon disappear
No matter how hard I try
My memory is clear

The wicked law prevails
Intentions have turned sour
Intensity of evil grows
Stronger by the hour

Once again I've lost my balance
And stumbled to the ground
Will I ever be free?
How long shall I be bound?

A weak and spineless victim
Doing what I hate

Temptations - seize me and I become a slave
Succumbing - to human nature

Beast on my back
In agony I dwell
Beast on my back
This is a living hell

I've felt this way before
So empty inside
Trust the promises of the world
To find out that they've lied
The nightmare is now over
The scars shall never fade
Etched into my memory
Are the mistakes that I have made

What a wretched being
Such unease!
Trapped within this shell of death
Rescue me!
Alas! The spirit of life
Freed from sin!
The fight is not yet over
But we'll win!
Win!
----

of course there is always the triple entendre...

ats Rocks indeed
