Matthew Rukgaber I hate to say it but Ripper rips. The vocalist is a little like The Sword but musically they are like the very best of Motorhead (i.e., no ballads and no attempts by Lemmy to write Jerry Lee Lewis songs)...just Ace of Spades through and through. So awesome. Favorite track: Warfare.

Track Name: My World, My War
MY WORLD, MY WAR

Come to me, Come to me
I hear the things they're offering
Change your ways, Change your ways
I won't be happy 'til I'm in my grave

Don't look back
I break every law I see
No remorse
For living life stone free
My world, My war

Surrender, surrender
I'd rather die without a care
Watch your step, watch your step
Than live a minute of regret

Don't look back
I break every law I see
No remorse
For living life stone free
My world, My war

Break all your laws if we want to
Break all your laws if we like
Track Name: Wasteland
WASTELAND

Late night nothing's in sight
I'm on my own again
travelling in the dying light
as the world it turns again

I know you want to see me go
and it's a lonely lonely road
but we stay rally and fight
we make our stands
in the wasteland

Wandering there's no home for me
through the valleys and desert seas
going out from band to band
bringing hope to a dying land

I know you want to see me go
and it's a lonely lonely road
but we stay rally and fight
we make our stands
in the wasteland

You may ask why we stay and fight
when there's no hope in sight
but there's a voice that whispers in the night
and I hear the call
you know I hear the call
Track Name: Calling Me
CALLING ME

Can this be the world that I've known
Are these the seeds that we've sown
No looking forward no looking back
standing frozen in our tracks
Are these the distant calls
from ages so long ago
warnings spoken in the wind
the cold voices of forgotten friends

Calling Me

Arise from a slumbering life
eyes blinded by the fires light
hear the cries take up the call
these voices beckon to us all
In the air a furious flight
as the wind seems to cling to life
is this real or is this a dream
resonating from an ancient scream
hear the battle horns trumpeting

Can this be the world that I've known
Are these the seeds we've sown
another victory a merciless plight
another strand of sleepless nights
Are these the distant calls
from ages long ago
I hear their symphony in my ears
and hear their voices in my tears

Calling me
Track Name: Warfare
WARFARE (We Don't Need Your Wars)

Never cared much if I lived or died
but you can't say that I never tried
seems I've battled through every day
is nothing sacred these days

and death stands before me
what's done is done
may the innocent forgive us all
when I hear the piper's call
Warfare

No life for me within these desperate times
seems I'm paying for others' crimes
and if that's the way and I know it has to be
at least I know that I died freed

so ashes to ashes
and dust to dust
may the innocent forgive us all
when I hear the piper's call
Warfare

We don't need your wars
Track Name: Into Dust
INTO DUST

Wonder what we're doing here
got no future got no fear
ain't no money in what I say
but there's a show and we just want to play 'cause

As we rise we'll fall
into dust
no gains at the end of the day
into dust
There's nothing you can do

Wonder what we're doing 'round
hanging out underground
no one hears a word I say
then give me a guitar I just want to play 'cause

As we rise we'll fall
into dust
no gains at the end of the day
into dust
There's nothing you can do

Into dust
Track Name: Reaper
REAPER

In the dead of night high in the blackest sky
therein lies an ever watchful eye
the earth it seems to shake as if to hesitate
from the sound of the approaching cry

Enter Reaper
as she comes to claim her prize
Enter Reaper
see your fate in her eyes

It's too late for you there's nothing you can do
you've had your time and your time is through
all you're left with is your wretched cowardice
fear your own thoughts as you ponder this

Enter Reaper
as she comes to claim her prize
Enter Reaper
how sweet the spell of her cries

Arise! Oh Reaper
Track Name: Never Enough
NEVER ENOUGH

Another sunrise a bittersweet touch
I say to myself this is much too much
but despite all of these things that I sway
in the end I just can't pull away

One more rise
One more touch
One last time is
Never enough

I despise this weakness of flesh
I tell myself "no" and I take another breath
but despite all of these things that I say
In the end I just can't pull away

One more rise
One more touch
One last time is
Never enough

One more night
One more day
One last time
before I fade away
Track Name: Wasted Again
WASTED AGAIN

Don't you think I know what's wrong with me
living in a world of hate and cruelty
don't believe in hope
don't waste my time with fear
just believe in myself you hear

Another empty night
another reason to fight

Wasted again
I'm back where nowhere ends
Wasted again
I'm back where nowhere ends
wasted life wasted night
but I feel alright
waste this world
waste this dream

Oh this place you know I think I'd rather leave
Or do I love the discord I see
feel like I'm going out of my head
I think I'd rather be out of my head

Another empty night
another reason to fight

Wasted again
I'm back where nowhere ends
Wasted again
I'm back where nowhere ends

wasted life wasted night
but I feel alright
waste this world
waste this dream
I'd rather scream
