    Back On Track

    SPAWN

    I have come to realise
    that there is, in fact, a left and right
    besides ahead
    I’ve accepted it, it’s all alright

    Key is acknowledgement
    of where it has gone wrong
    from there on just go forward
    hitch in and come along

    I see no evil in
    taking a step backwards
    It’s critical to be able to
    close the previous chapter

    We’re back on track
    stronger than a massive wolf pack
    We’re back on track
    It’s all about the future, don’t look back
    We’re back on track
    stronger than a massive wolf pack
    We’re back on track
    It’s all about the future, don’t look back

    The future is looking mighty bright
    In my own perspective
    once you’ve found your way up again,
    re-join the collective

    I have finally realised
    it’s been okay, more than all right
    I’m back on track
    At last, I can sleep at night

    We’re back on track
    stronger than a massive wolf pack
    We’re back on track
    It’s all about the future, don’t look back
    We’re back on track
    stronger than a massive wolf pack
    We’re back on track
    It’s all about the future, don’t look back

    Respawnsibilities

    SPAWN

    Could you maybe tell me
    What I’m supposed to do
    Time has made me bolder, also older
    I have to pay the mortgage
    Feed my wife, my pet, myself
    Time has made me bolder, also older

    Yes I tend to screw up
    Mister perfect I am not
    Time has made me bolder, also older
    But after all I manage
    Do the things I have to do
    Time has made me bolder, also older

    Condemn The Pessimists

    SPAWN

    Whenever you feel like you’re in pain
    You’re whole life sucks, gone down the drain
    Just listen to Spawn’s seven squad
    Energetic as a cocaine shot

    Pessimists with their pesticides
    Try to wipe out all of your highlights
    No fun (no fun) no joy (no joy)
    No rock’n’roll

    Now make sure your voice is being heard
    By all those whose brains are alas blurred
    Pessimists to hell with them
    Form a front and all condemn

    Pessimists with their pesticides
    Try to wipe out all of your highlights
    No fun (no fun) no joy (no joy)
    No rock’n’roll

    Joy Forever

    SPAWN

    For centuries people have been celebrating life
    So why shouldn’t I make sure I’m alive
    I pride myself in being spawntaneous and real
    A joy forever in fact a big deal!

    A thing of beauty is a joy forever
    To find happiness is what I shall endeavour
    The moment of truth
    Eternal youth
    Poetic bullshit, whatever!

    Don’t be fake, you’ll never know
    What lies ahead, just let it go
    Live happily ever
    After whatever
    Fairytale bullshit show!

    For centuries people have been celebrating life
    So why shouldn’t I make sure I’m alive
    I pride myself in being spawntaneous and real
    A joy forever in fact a big deal!

    A nobleman I am, notorious but numb
    To everything I’ve not become
    I know it sounds strange
    But I would not change
    Or I’d rather be: undone!

    For centuries people have been celebrating life
    So why shouldn’t I make sure I’m alive
    I pride myself in being spawntaneous and real
    A joy forever in fact a big deal!

    Redemption

    SPAWN

    We had an argument
    got really turbulent

    You kicked me in my guts
    I kicked you in the nuts

    We had a beer and everything’s alright
    but maybe it’s not on us to decide!

    Still going to hell,
    Because you can’t buy redemption
    But at least you’ll have to try

    If He can hear you yell
    Maybe your Lord makes an exemption
    a wise man has to pacify

    Marley told you all along
    Just listen to redemption song

    Emancipate yourself
    From mental slavery

    We had a beer and everything’s alright
    but maybe it’s not on us to decide!

    Still going to hell,
    Because you can’t buy redemption
    But at least you’ll have to try

    If He can hear you yell
    Maybe your Lord makes an exemption
    a wise man has to pacify

    Strange Contradiction

    SPAWN

    I don’t like you very much
    And I think you’re an asshole
    Even though we have never met
    To me you’re only fictional
    Your action most despicable
    Bound to be alive, only online

    Online is where it’s happening
    To me even more saddening
    Swiping, posting every single day
    For once try to communicate
    If you could be so ballsy
    Just like all the rest, face to face

    I think you are stranger than fiction
    A walking contradiction
    I don’t really know you
    But I think you’re kinda cuckoo
    I think you are stranger than fiction

    When you dare to leave your cage
    And that’s not very often
    You suddenly, do not have the balls
    To physically express a word
    So typical for a nerd
    Anxious and pathetic, that is you

    Monosyllabic

    SPAWN

    Grunted at me for no reason at all
    No matter if it had been big or small
    Kicked me out of home last Spring
    Now please give back that diamond ring

    Even that didn´t please her majesty
    One big plus, it ended my agony
    Luckily you weren´t bluffing, cause
    All those years I had been suffering
    Two simple words
    Do you want to know which?
    Monosyllabic Bitch
    One simple phrase
    That´ll flick the switch
    Monosyllabic Bitch

    I had to always gag your bearded clam
    Thought I did a proper job ma´am
    But you did not look enthralled
    Again leaving me behind blue balled
    One last thing to end this declamation
    and get rid of all my frustration
    I felt honour bound to tell
    My strife´s story in a nutshell
    Two simple words
    Do you want to know which?
    Monosyllabic Bitch
    One simple phrase
    That´ll flick the switch
    Monosyllabic Bitch

    Stench Of Misfortune

    SPAWN

    Every once in a while I
    Have been tempted to accept
    Misfortune always has and always will intercept

    But it’s not in my nature to
    Keep weeping over small affairs
    So get over it, yeah you’d better beware

    Despite all the setbacks stay alert
    Just in case something jolly has occurred.
    You might not know how to deal with situations that are fun
    just remember the lyrics to this song
    The stench of bad luck GONE
    Rollercoaster of emotions GONE
    Yesterday you were like SHIT and tomorrow you’re OKAY
    But in a year you’ll be AWESOME!

    Look at me, I am my new self
    Learnt my lessons fair and square
    Head up high and chin up the air

    Never ever again
    Will I be tempted to accept
    Misfortune always has and always will intercept

    Despite all the setbacks stay alert
    Just in case something jolly has occurred.
    You might not know how to deal with situations that are fun
    just remember the lyrics to this song
    The stench of bad luck GONE
    Rollercoaster of emotions GONE
    Yesterday you were like SHIT and tomorrow you’re OKAY
    But in a year you’ll be AWESOME!

    Voodoo

    SPAWN

    It all started a couple of years ago
    Roaming around at an innocuous bazaar
    The vendors were flaunting knickknacks of all kind
    The retard I am, not to see what was going on

    If only I had known, I would have run away
    As far as I could from this heathenical scene
    Suddenly I felt a freaky sensation
    Next thing I knew I had a dagger in my hand

    The love me or die
    The hoodoo, the voodoo
    Devil’s behes’ is what I suspect
    The love me or die
    The hoodoo, the voodoo
    Possessed by an ancient devils reject

    It felt superstitious, almost empowering
    So I decided to take it back home
    I couldn’t look away, had to keep it in sight
    And that is where the disorder began

    Visions of long gone, times of destruction
    Struck my mind, what did I do wrong?
    Harmless it looked like, but harmful after all
    Never will my life be the same again
