Track Name: Casualty
Meursault was in his cell awaiting the clang of death’s bell
The universe’s indifference tore him worse than the hounds of Hell
Slansky the conspirator went from predator to prey
And Bukharin with his ideology, old loyalties crushed by the Party

You thought you showed them all
You’re face-first against the wall
You’re just another casualty
You thought your race was won
The executioners raise their guns
Just another casualty
You’re just another casualty

Gather round the scapegoats, undesirables fill the aisles
Time to get down on your knees and clutch those rosary beads
But angels won’t get through that rabbit-proof fence

You thought you showed them all
You’re face-first against the wall
You’re just another casualty
You served the upper-class
Despised the lower castes
Just another casualty
You’re just another casualty
Track Name: Dead Reckoning
May red-dawn skies bring before your eyes
A cruel, relentless sea
And the crushing deep your soul to keep
Till doomsday’s reveille

With a way hey ho, I’m gonna kill you slow
If I find you on this earth
With a way hey hey, you better fucking pray
The devil finds you first

My blood, my blood, my raging blood
With a vengeance it doth burn
You stole from me my true love’s heart
So I’ll take your life in turn

With a way hey ho, I’m gonna kill you slow
If I find you on this earth
With a way hey hey, you better fucking pray
The devil finds you first

My love, my love, my wicked love,
Into the sea’s repose
I lay your lovely corpse to rest
With a single wilted rose

And a way hey ho, as you sink below
I will sing a solemn tune
And a way hey hey, as the waters sway
Underneath a waning moon

May the tears shed by the Pleiades
Raise up a mighty swell
And the icy fingers of the raging sea
Drag you to the depths of hell

With a way hey ho, I’m gonna kill you slow
If I find you on this earth
With a way hey hey, you better fucking pray
The devil finds you first
Track Name: The Night Shift (Live)
The junkies howl at a crack-rock moon
On a pipe-dream vision quest
And they'lll go on 'til kingdom come has come and gone

Through dead-bolt doors, under loose floor boards
The dealer makes a living
He makes a killing 'cause dope and life are sold dirt cheap

And I know the world turns to ash in the moonlight
And to blood-red dawn, oh, the night shifts

With steel-cold eyes and a switchblade smile
In her mouth a cigarette
She's a bombshell, a stiletto silhouette

Now the sirens howl like a banshee whore
And the cops are on the prowl
And they'll go on, the beat is old the night is young

And I know the world turns to ash in the moonlight
And to blood-red dawn, oh, the night shift
