Topi I pretty much grew up on bread and glam metal, so I don't mind the latter, if that's really what Dead City Ruins represents. Whatever the case, this album is a pleasure to listen to!

paul rote Hello my name is Paul Rote and I'm a bandcampohilc ! I'm addicted to buying music on bandcamp. It is the only explanation for buying this on the strength of one song. The rest is some sort of glam metalish stuff. NOT what I'm into for sure ! Favorite track: Dio.

Track Name: Happenzella
I had a dream last night
All you had told me was right
I fought to keep the panic down.
My ears scream like the bay of a hound

Am I drowning again
Got no way out don't see no end
Screamin oh set me free
I am chained to what cannot be

Life screaming past my blackened eyes
Don't care if I live or die
Blood screaming through my pulsing veins
Heart pounding am I goin insane

Am I drowning again
Got no way out don't see no end
Screamin oh set me free
I am chained to what cannot be

Hold the last in line
Nobody's getting out alive
Taught the lies and the deception
Follow the masses to destruction

Am I drowning again
Got no way out don't see no end
Screamin oh set me free
I am chained to what cannot be
Track Name: Til Death
Out in the desert I buried my brother
Stripped and salted his bones
I dug it deep laid him six feet under
Barked at the moon till it rained

With blackened eyes I watched the darkness creeping
Dead hands tearing my soul
Watching the prophet handing gold to the people
The sky was bleeding fire and ice

Yeeeeaaaahhhhhhh
Yeeeeaaaahhhhhhh

This king of no man
A dealer with no hand
A lifetime of sin and hate

This king of no man
A dealer with no hand
I'll lay myself to waste

My lungs burnt fire
My heart made of iron
Salt turns me to rust

Like frost from winter
My soul crushing under
The weight and pain of it all

The dead hands dragging me under
I can't recover the lost
Of barren fields
Unforeseeable horrors
I'm fallin' dead weight head first

Yeeeeaaaahhhhhhh
Yeeeeaaaahhhhhhh

This king of no man
A dealer with no hand
A life time of sin and hate

This king of no man
A dealer with no hand
I'll lay myself to waste

(Solo)

This king of no man
A dealer with no hand
A lifetime of sin and hate

This king of no man
A dealer with no hand
I'll lay myself to waste
Track Name: DIB
My body aches with pain inside
The feelings that torment my mind
You bitch and you moan
But I'm the one who walks alone
I freeze to death in the night

Then I walk alone
You know you're never there
Then I walk alone
No one cares
Am I gone?
Sell my soul to the devil's fire
Alone, I walk alone
And I freeze to death in the night

You stare in my eyes
You tell me stupid lies
Sneak around behind
You tell me I'm the one
But you're the one with the loaded gun
I freeze to death in the night.

Then I walk alone
You know you're never there
Then I walk alone
No one cares
Am I gone?
Sell my soul to the devil's fire
Alone, I walk alone
And I freeze to death in the night

(Solo)

Then I walk alone
You know you're never there
Then I walk alone
No one cares
Am I gone?
Sell my soul to the devil's fire
Alone, I walk alone
And I freeze to death in the night
Track Name: Hurt
Whoa you live your life in sin
Tell me sweet little lies with this hell in your eyes screaming bloody murder
Whoa beat me like a dog
Always acting crazy got your finger on the trigger you don't fuckin realise

Nobody knows
Ain't nobody's business how my baby treats me

One o these days I'll wake up crazy
Grab my gun and kill my baby
One o these days I'll wake up alone

I'm fallin deeper into the recesses of my mind
The cracks are closin in on me
I've watched the light begin fading further away
This darkness is closing in on me

Nobody knows
Ain't nobody's business how my baby treats me

One o these days I'll wake up crazy
Grab my gun and kill my baby
One o these days I'll wake up alone

Nobody knows
Ain't nobody's business how my baby treats me

One o these days I'll wake up crazy
Grab my gun and kill my baby
One o these days I'll wake up alone
One o these days I'll grab my Smith and Wesson
Gonna teach her a lesson
One o these days I'll wake up alone
Track Name: Shot Through The Sky
Shot through the sky like a thief in the night come to rob you blind
Run run run till the mornin light get outta town
Johnny ain't wrong Johnny ain't right Johnny's just fuckin gone
Blind your eyes and steal your heart and leave you beggin for more

Johnny's not dead yet
He’s livin' a lie
Johnny's not dead yet
He’s livin' a lie

Underground in the heart of town tip rats come out to play
Bin by bin they steal the skin and throw them bones away
I'll fuck your face and cut your brakes steal your life away
Town by town we burn em down no where left to stay

Johnny's not dead yet
He’s livin' a lie
Johnny's not dead yet
He’s livin' a lie

Shot through the sky like a thief in the night come to rob you blind
Run run run till the mornin light get outta town
Johnny ain't wrong Johnny ain't right Johnny's just fuckin gone
Blind your eyes and steal your heart and leave you beggin' for more

Johnny's not dead yet
He’s livin' a lie
Johnny's not dead yet
He’s livin' a lie
Track Name: Blue Bastard
Stand tough when the trouble begins
Walk tall in this city of sin
Ain't no one gonna watch your back
Stop still its a sneak attack
Cold metal in the dead of night tryin' to take your soul but you gotta fight.

40 nights and 40 days
Can't hardly see through this pourin' rain
Cannot clear my brain from this haze
Awoke again in searing pain.

One bottle to save us through this train wreck
Drinking to ease the pain away
I need you to carry me back home
One bottle to get us through this night.

North to South and East to West
Can't stop this Bastard ain't got time for no rest
People screaming where we gonna go
Been robbed blind in the centre of Rome
You got no idea how it feels to beat up pushed down and second-hand sold.

Found The Dove, Leeds us astray
London's burnin headin Nottingham's way
My mind's ablaze and all I think about is where we went wrong.

One bottle to save us through this train wreck
Drinking to ease the pain away
I need you to carry me back home
One bottle to get us through this night.

We passed the desert into the sun
Drove the Bastard like a loaded gun
From the mountains in Northern Lights
Dead walk alone in these street fights.

When it's over blood and pain
Sent home then you're just back to work again
Dreams and memories they all fade
Can't hardly remember the names
Even though the scars remain I cannot wait to hit the road again.

One bottle to save us through this train wreck
Drinking to ease the pain away
I need you to carry me back home
One bottle to get us through this night.
Track Name: Broken Bones
Broken bones and bloodied fists
You're on the road and you're sick of it
Worked half ya life away
Broke your back and you ain't gettin' paid

This killin' road takes all it can
White line fever will ruin a man
Fortune favours the bold so they say
Memories will die then they'll fade away

For what?

For broken bones
And bloodied fists
You're on the road and you're sick of it

So you run, run away
Sell your soul for another day
But you run, run away
Live your life, day by day

You're stretching thin and falling in
You gotta stand tall in this town of sin
Don't take me home can't make me go
No explanation got nothin' to show

For what?

For broken bones
And bloodied fists
You're on the road and you're sick of it

So you run, run away
Sell your soul for another day
But you run, run away
Live your life
Day by day
Track Name: Dio
Neon nights on the silver mountain
Little man with iron lungs

You read the signs on the southern stars
Fire breathes so real
Something comes along rips you outta the world

You seen the stripes now you ride forever
Verses on the winds of time
From the elf to the edge of the rainbow
You left your mark on Heaven and Hell
Something comes along rips you outta the world

Steel wings won't carry you to heaven that's for sure
Tonight you're dining with the Gods
Your words will carry on through the sands of forever more
You left us empty as the night

The dawn will rise again will remind
The world with heavy heart will carry on in the dark
You're gone!
Track Name: Bloody Tools
Over and over you're rolling
Your life passes into the night
I search for you brother in the southern stars
Around midnight
You fall back down into the ground my hand reaches into your mind
Drag you back down to earth again
Stick around for a while

You said I'd never walk alone
Here I am

You roll, roll, roll right over again
Ain't no fear in your eyes
I search for you brother in the midnight sky
You know I never cry
You look at me God you laugh at me you know you'll never die
Cause in my mind brother you'll live on till the end of time

You said I'd never walk alone
Here I am
I'm sick inside

Bloody tools
The butcher
Bloody tools
I'm sick, sick, sick

You'll never be forgotten
Till the end we meet again
I curse the sky with open arms
Miss you brother till the end
I'll hold my head up high

(Solo)

Never again, never again
Never again, never again
Never again, never again
Never again, never again
Never again, never again
Never again, never again

You'll never be forgotten
Till the end we meet again
I curse the sky with open arms
Miss you brother till the end
I'll hold my head up high

Bloody tools
The butcher
Bloody tools
I'm sick, sick, sick
