PostSubject: Where we try to figure out missing lyrics to songs...   Where we try to figure out missing lyrics to songs... Icon_minitimeThu Jul 19, 2018 5:04 am

So over the years of loving heavy metal I've come across a couple specific songs that don't seem to have any official lyrics in certain parts. While the song may have most of the lyrics available online, certain parts are always left out in lyric sheets, or on lyrics based websites. This thread is for us to help each other figure out those mysterious lyrics ONCE AND FOR ALL. This isn't just for the 2 songs I'll post, but for anything else you know of that has never had complete lyrics in certain parts.

In (My Favorite) Nightmare by Metal Church at around 2:25 in (just after the solo) the official lyrics are:
"[inaudible] A friend of mine is the first one out to check
[inaudible]
Ripping flesh, [something] fly, we hear them slowly die
Then the cry of the banshee...,[inaudible]
Scream! Scream for your life!
Scream! Scream for your life!"

This is clearly missing parts.

Now on the line "Ripping flesh" it's very clear that he says "Ripping flesh, entrails fly, as we hear em slowly die"
I think in the line before "ripping flesh" he says something about "but all we hear (something something) on the deck" MAYBE?

What are all the other parts that he sings in that verse? The rest of the song is pretty distinguishable, but that part has no complete lyrics no matter where I've looked online over the years. It even said "[inaudible]" in the lyrics on the official Metal Church website. Well, I just checked their site and they don't even have lyrics available on there anymore.



The other song I have issues with is A Dog's Breakfast by Tourniquet.
At 3:14 in (after the solo) the lyrics you'll find on every website AND in the CD version's official insert are:
"[inaudible] Myself I love so much
Because the New Age teaches me
"The source of good and secrets lie within""

The first half of that first line is missing, but he's singing it very very fast. I've even heard live versions where Luke Easter would just do some mumbly stuff during the first half of that line. I just listened to it, it's like he's just saying "ut tut tut tut tut myself I love so much". On the reissue version, there's also a demo version of the song, but that version has no vocals.

Can ANYONE help me here?!?! Also, post your lyrics mysteries that you want solved!

"(My Favorite) Nightmare"

Mister badass friend of mine is the first one out to check
Through the door we hear the gulps and splatters on the deck
Ripping flesh, entrails fly, we hear him slowly die
Then the cry of the banshee deep in the night

:O YUUUUUSSSSSSSSSS

You're Awesome, man. Thank you.  Seriously. I've been wondering about that for years. Sometimes you just need a different set of ears I guess.

 I can't be the only one to have this issue with a couple songs.

So there's a couple other Metal Church songs I'm unsure about. Hitman has a weird line at the beginning of the chorus. I checked Genius and Dark Lyrics as well as the Encyclopaedia Metallum (Metal Archives). They all say the same thing, although Dark Lyrics got one line right the others didn't.

Yes I'm the one they call the best
In the name of all, I'm just a hitman <---- The part before he says I'm just a hitman isn't right
I'll get the job done
No one will ever know
it was you, it was you

They got their men promoted
before it's time
You break a sweat and your balls <---- this line is definitely not right
before the moment's time
Don't get excited, I got a plan
We'll take him down now
he'll be one dead man


Beyond The Black isn't right either. There's a part near the end.

Out of the crypt with faces marred
Seems the night has won
We unite as one
No more weapons, no more guns <---- This line isn't right at all.
Look out!



It's frustrating seeing these songs that don't have correct lyrics on websites. I have the CDs but for the original Metal Church album there's no lyrics in it. I don't have the vinyl, so maybe that might have it. I've never collected vinyl so maybe someone can say if the lyrics are inside or not.

A lot about the Metal Church s/t album is a mystery.
Everyone knows it’s a top notch album.....up there with Kill em All.......

Agreed, brother Glower! Amazing album!

Some of you here have probably read that I used to tape songs off of a show called the Metalzone off 94HJY back in junior/high school. It would run from midnight til' 2am on Saturday nights. A lot of times, I would get "mystery songs" since I would leave the tape running and I would get a partial song or the late Dr. Metal wouldn't say who it was. I would play the song (or songs) for my group at school (usually in home room or at lunch) and somebody would know it. I recorded this one song on Saturday , Jan., 24th 1987. I only know this because after the song ended a commercial came on talking about Super Bowl Sunday and the Giants playing the Broncos that day. Nobody knows who the song or artist in question is and after a few years, I give up the grail.

I head off to college in NH in the Fall of 1992. My RA (a guy named Dean) has the room next to me in the dorm. When you are 18 and hiding booze in your room (and the occasional chick after "open hours") the RA is your sworn enemy. Ha. So, one particular night I was working on a paper and cranking this comp. I lost track of time and it soon was after open hours were we had sort of a noise ordinance that everything had to be kept to a dull roar after 10pm. There's a knock at the door and it's Dean. He tells me "hey, man, I love Metal Church too, but you gotta lower it a bit" and I stare in stunned silence for about 5 seconds. I ask, "you know what song this is?" as I turn back into the room to lower the music."Yeah, it's 'Gods of Wrath' it's off their first album." I had the look of those people in the Publisher's Clearing house commercials when Ed McMahon would show up at the door with a check for 5 grand a week for life.

I owned The Dark, and Blessing was a top ten fave at the time, but I had never heard the first album. He let me make a copy and the next weekend I was able to come home I was at my local record shop getting my own on cassette. Every time I hear "Gods" I think of the moment I learned who and what song it was. When I was in high school I worked for a cleaning company owned by a family friend. We would work from around 11:30pm on a Friday night (me, the owner, and my friend Chris) until 7-8am on Saturday morning. We would clean a local bowling alley and car dealership, etc. I would play this comp in my Walkman while I was working.

I wish I still had it as I would have loved to recreate it; a few other tunes from the best of my memory were:

Dio - Gypsy
Queensryche - Take Hold of the Flame
Armored Saint - Can U Deliver

For an album with lots of errors for the available lyrics, go to Metal Archives and look up the lyrics to Chastain's album Ruler of the Wasteland. I seem to remember every verse having at least one error in every song except "Angel of Mercy".

I'm pretty sure the lyrics for Hitman in question are "Any name at all, I'm just a hitman" and "You'd break their neck for one thing measly dime".

Great story dude. I always used VHS tapes when I was a kid, because my mom and stepdad (at that time) both worked at separate TV stations so we always had loads of tapes of content that they would dub and then bring home for us to watch. We also used to tape stuff on the VCR off the tv and you'd always get those weird bits of programs and have no idea what the heck it was, but it was always interesting and strange because no one ever had any idea what it was, or it was some show you wanted to see, but it would cut out like a minute or two into it.

I also had a Talkboy (that toy Kevin McCalister had in Home Alone 2) and my mom gave me loads of cassettes so I would tape everything. I'd talk randomly into it with anything I'd come up with. I'd tape friends talking, or do that thing that you could do from the movie where you can slow the tape down and it would lower your voice. I loved that thing, and I found a tape or two I used to use in that a few years back. I need to listen to that thing again some time, see what 7 year old me was wondering about. Smile

Sounds like "one thin measly dime" But yeah that sounds exactly like it to me. Sometimes you just need a different set of ears because you just keep hearing the same nonsensical line and having no idea what it could be. Thanks man.

Gotta figure out that line or 2 in Beyond The Black now. There's also the first line from A Dog's Breakfast on Tourniquet's album Psychosurgery that bugs the crap out of me. It's the first line after the solo. "....myself I love so much". Even on the remaster they did in 2001, it doesn't have that line complete in the lyrics. I've listened to that album for 20 years now and it always drives me crazy because I can never figure it out.

But seriously thanks for those lines on Hitman. Sounds correct to me. Much better than the gobbledy gook I was thinking of.

Also, seriously, if anyone has any other lyrics they're wondering about post it here. We can try and figure it out. Like I said above, sometimes you just need that extra set of ears to be able to figure it out.

Thanks, brother. I used to tape "Headbanger's Ball" back then too, but the good part of the videos were that they had the artist's name and info at the beginning and end of the vid so you knew what you were getting. The random stuff from the Metalzone or the Z Rock 50 countdown on Sunday nights was sometimes harder to figure out.

Yeah I didn't get into metal until the late 90's. So I've been into it for about 20 years now. I wasn't into it during the years of Headbanger's Ball. I was around 10 then when it ended first in 1995 so I never watched any of it. But I did tape all kinds of other stuff. It's fun. You don't have that kind of blast from the past type of thing anymore. You can either still find that weird old video online somewhere or it's just gone forever now. I don't even watch broadcast TV anymore, and haven't for many years now. It's easier to just go online, or use a streaming service to find something that I find interesting.

Yeah I mean I kind of hear that, but it still sounds like he's saying something, and that part has ALWAYS bothered me because of that. If I ever saw Tourniquet in concert again I'd ask them about it. The last time I saw them was Cornerstone 2002 and I didn't even have those remastered first three albums yet, so I hadn't heard much of those albums by that point.

Agreed. I don't watch much TV at all anymore. I watch my concert DVD's or something old from childhood on Netflix or IMDB channel.

A few years back, I had cable and VH1 Classic, and that Metal Show was enjoyable but the Metal video show was a waste as it felt like they only played the same 7 videos over and over again. The memories of Headbanger's Ball are all I have left.

As for radio, every so oftern I will turn on House of Hair as it's Dee Snider and is done with love and reverence for the genre. The local station used to have a show (in the mid 1990's) called Hair In Your Lunch, but they never got beyond the big hits of the genre .And the DJ ( she left years ago to run her parents car dealership) who sucked anyway, did it sort of begrudgingly and with an attitude of "remember this song? It's not as good as Nirvana" and other snide comments. In the car I have Sirius XM and like the stations; but, as I wrote in another thread, there is really nothing out of the ordinary until they have a guest host or a show like Metal Midgets or Trunk Nation.

If you have the Google Play Music app on your phone, type in the name of a band, and they'll pull up a artist-based playlist that plays both that band and other similar bands, and not just the big hits as they play album cuts as well. I prefer that to Sirius XM. For example, here's the first 5 songs I got from a Scorpions playlist:

Scorpions: You Give Me All I Need
Twisted Sister: Never Say Never
Helloween: Forever and One
Kiss: Outta This World
Krokus: School's Out
