The Killing Road

Album: Youthanasia (1994)
  • Again we stalk the stage
    At mach speed we engage
    Feeding people's rage
    The big cat's left its cage
    Back in the bus again
    To catch another plane
    This behavior's quite insane
    But we do it for the fame, yeah
    I lost my mind, I lost all my money
    I lost my life to the Killing Road
    The road will never end
    It always starts again
    Another show's around the best
    Another long lost friend
    Faceless as the snow
    There's nothing special about the road
    It's just another haul
    It's just too damn long that's all, yeah
