Track Name: I'm Gonna Rise
I’m Gonna Rise ©Angry Johnny And The Killbillies-Bonesaw Lullaby BMI

I’m gonna rise I’m gonna rise up and cut you down
I’m gonna rise up and paint this town
Paint it with your blood

I’m gonna rise I’m gonna rise up and make you pay
Gonna rise up make you rue the day
You put me in this mud

I’m gonna rise I’m gonna rise up and take your breath
I’m gonna rise up and bring you death
Make you pay for your sins

All your lies Every one’s gonna be revealed
Gonna rise up and break the seal
Gonna rise up again

Gonna rise gonna rise up out of this dirt
Gonna rise up and make you hurt
Gonna teach you ‘bout pain

I’m gonna rise ain’t no grave gonna hold me now
Ain’t no chains gonna keep me bound
You better run while you can
Track Name: Kingdom Of Heaven
KINGDOM OF HEAVEN
©Angry Johnny And The Killbillies-Bonesaw Lullaby BMI

He said come and you shall be fed
He said and you shall be saved
He said come and you shall be raised from the dead
He said come and you shall be saved

Kneel down and pray for forgiveness
Kneel down and pray to the Lord
Kneel down and pray unto Jesus
And the Devil shall die by his sword

Sweet Jesus He gave up His body
He gave up His blood for our sins
Sweet Jesus He came here to save us
Open your heart let Him in

The dead shall soon rise up in glory
The Devil shall rule here no more
Believe in the beautiful Savior
And the kingdom of Heaven is yours

So drink up the blood of His glory
Yes wash in the blood of the Lord
Let the body of Christ be your savior
And the kingdom of Heaven is yours
Track Name: End Of The World
END OF THE WORLD ©Angry Johnny And The Killbillies, Bonesaw Lullaby BMI

Today I shot my brother in the head
He was already turned he was already dead
But that didn’t make it easier than if he’d been alive
The end of the world is here my friend
Ain’t no reason to survive

I shot my friends I shot my enemies
It was either that or they’d be eating me
I mowed ‘em down like they were dandylions
The end of the world is here my friend
Is there any point in trying

The other day I put my best girl down
I buried her in her momma’s wedding gown
In just a couple months we were fixin to be wed
The end of the world is here my friend
And my best girl is dead

I’ve shot old men and I’ve shot children too
If you get bit then I’ll be shootin you
I can here the Devil laughin and I fear that God is dead
The end of the world is here my friend
Just like the bible said

Through my scope I watch that awful shuffle dance
Pull The trigger quick no need to take a chance
For every one I kill there’s twenty more to take it’s place
The end of the world is here my friend
Looks like we lost the human race

Every day there’s less of us and more of them
While I’m here I’ll kill as many as I can
It looks like there is finally no more room left down in Hell
The end of the world is here my friend
I guess it’s just as well
Track Name: Dance Of The Shufflers Part Three
Dance Of The Shufflers Part 3 ©Angry Johnny Bonesaw Lullaby BMI

He said the fourth reich’s gonna raise it’s head
Disguised as good that’s what he said
He said they’d even raise the dead
To feast upon the living

Because all they wanted was control
He said they’d even sell their souls
And then they’d hide down in their holes
While the earth above was dying

We’ll be dancing like Saint Vitus like broken puppets on a wire
They’ll pick and choose who’ll or lose who goes into the fire
They say there’s way too many of us and the herd needs to be thinned
They’ll round us up and they’ll burn us down and their new world will begin

It was written in the history books
All the books Big Brother took
And burned up while the sheep just looked
At pictures on TV

The slaughter will be final
no mercy will be shown
It will not end until this land
is covered in bleached bones

We’ll be dancing like Saint Vitus on the day that Jesus weeps
And the Devil laughs in triumph as his army of death creeps
Track Name: When The Dead Came
WHEN THE DEAD CAME
©Angry Johnny And The Killbillies, Bonesaw Lullaby BMI

Let’s go singing in the acid rain
Laugh as it eats into our brains
Let’s go skipping down memory lane
See what’s gone and what remains
Let’s go down to the corner store
We can sit and talk some more
It’s coming down it’s starting to pour
Remember back before the war

And then the dead came
Up from the ground right before our eyes
When the dead came
No one around left to tell us why
When the dead came
I can’t remember did I hear you cry
When the dead came

Let’s go down to the pinball place
We got a lot of time to waste
It’s not too far do you wanna race
I’ve got a quarter in here some place
Let’s go down to the empty mall
Run around we’ll have a ball
Shoot some shufflers watch them fall
Remember back when we were small

Let’s go down to the old landfill
Ten thousand people that they’ve killed
Buried deep they’re down there still
Let’s go drinking on the hill
Let’s get drunk and take a chance
Run amongst them as they dance
Let ‘em catch us if they can
Shovel-head them feel alive again

When the dead came
Up from the ground right before our eyes
When the dead came
No one around left to tell us why
When the dead came
I can’t remember did I hear you cry
When the dead came
Track Name: This One
This One ©Angry Johnny And The Killbillies-Bonesaw Lullaby BMI

I think I’m gonna keep this one
She was beautiful once you still can tell
Before they boiled up from Hell
Before the gates of Heaven fell

I think I’m gonna keep this one
Although I really don’t know why
Beneath all of that stink and flies
There’s still something in her foggy eyes

I think I’m gonna keep this one
Because lately I could use a friend
And just looking at her lipless grin
Let’s all of those old memories back in

I think I’m gonna keep this one
She reminds me just a bit of you
At least until she falls apart
Just maybe for a day or two

I think I’m gonna keep this one
I think I’m gonna keep this one
Track Name: Step Into The Light
STEP INTO THE LIGHT ©Angry Johnny Bonesaw Lullaby BMI

Someone tell them spooks to step into the light
So I can get a good look at them I can get ‘em in my sights
I’ll pick ‘em off like woodchucks turn some wrongs into some rights
Your time to fear is finally here c’mon cowards step into the light

Someone tell them spooks that I’ll be coming soon
No more hiding down there, behind jack-booted goons
I’m gonna teach you all a brand new different tune
It goes rat-a-tat-tat rat-a-tat-tat rat-a-tat-tat boom boom boom

Where’d all your money get you where did all your power go
The playing field is equal now just thought you ought to know
The dinner bell is ringing now there’s nowhere you can hide
Come out you spooky bastards come step into the light

You never saw it coming you never thought it through
When none of us are left they’ll be coming after you
Your soft and juicy flesh Oh how the shufflers will delight
After feeding on us scarecrows for so long

They’ll rend you limb from limb tear the meat off of your bones
But not before I’m through with you it’s time that you atone
I should leave you to the shufflers should leave well enough alone
But I’ve got nothing left to live for but revenge
Track Name: Moles
MOLES ©Angry Johnny Bonesaw Lullaby BMI


I miss my mother I miss my father I miss my children I miss my wife
I miss my brother and all the others I miss my sisters I miss my life
I’m living proof that hell is real
I’m living proof that God is gone

Now there is only darkness and killing nothing to do now but just survive
Ten thousand shufflers forever hungry devouring everything that’s left alive
So I’ll keep fighting pretend I’m saving, pretend I’m saving their poor damn souls
No time for dreaming no point in praying just put them bastards back in their holes

While the real monsters hide in their bunkers digging blindly through the dirt like frightened moles
Track Name: When The Blue Sky Turned Black
WHEN THE BLUE SKY TURNED BLACK©Angry Johnny And The Killbillies
Bonesaw Lullaby BMI

When the blue sky turned black And we danced in the fire
We’ve been led down this path By the lies of the liars
See the cities in flames They’ve become funeral pyres
When the blue sky turned black And we danced in the fire

Rain Rain came the bombs bodies burning everywhere
But they just shuffled on no the dead do not care

When the blue sky turned black And this rain started falling
And the dead rose again from their graves they came crawling
There was nothing to do except watch them devour
This whole world we once knew in our darkest of hours

When the blue sky turned black burning rain fell down on us
When the Lord turned His back and the plague was upon us
I remember I promised I would love you forever
But now the blue sky is black and the picnic is over

I wish I was with you I wish we were together
If there’s no more tomorrow I want to be with you forever

Then the hoards shuffled through swarming like Mormon crickets
But no gulls did appear God sent no gulls to save us
The undead came and came waves of cannibal locusts
Soon the world was awash in the Devil’s black circus

Heaven’s crumbled to dust Hell will have it’s revenge
The enemy it is us sweet death your only true friend

When the blue sky turned black And we danced in the fire
We’ve been led down this path By the lies of the liars
See the cities in flames They’ve become funeral pyres
When the blue sky turned black And we danced in the fire
Track Name: Dance Dead Man Dance
DANCE DEAD MAN DANCE
©Angry Johnny And The Killbillies, Bonesaw Lullaby BMI

Well they finally got what they wanted
They finally blew it all away
I wonder if way down in them bunkers
They’re having themselves a pretty good day
Because up here on the surface
It’s dog eat dog and it’s man eat man
You don’t always do what you oughta
Mostly just do what you can
The shufflers are up and dancing
Like go go’s without a cage
The government boys are shootin’
Anything that ain’t yet rotting in it’s grave
As for me I’m just survivin’
But I’m getting kind’ve bored
I’d really like to get me some sleep
But that’s a luxury I can’t afford

The choppers are still flying
Their machine guns glowing red
Down here if you ain’t dying
You’re already one of the undead

So dance dead man dance
Dance like there’s no tomorrow
Just dance dead man dance
You’re living on time that’s borrowed
So dance dead man dance
C’mon and dance at the dead man’s ball
Dance dead man dance
‘cuz you know their gonna kill us all

I wonder why I keep on living
I wonder why I don’t give in
Every day is the same like a video game
Shootin at whatever shuffles and grins
So c’mon you goddamned scarecrows
Let’s have some fun tonight
Dance you sorry bastards
Dance into my sights
Track Name: We Die Alone
WE DIE ALONE
©Angry Johnny And The Killbillies, Bonesaw Lullaby BMI

When the fire comes and it burns us down to ash
Will I see you through the smoke will I see you through the flames
When the water comes and it washes us away
Will you hold on to my hand will it matter anyway

When we die we die alone
Even in true love’s embrace
Where we go nobody knows probably nowhere
When we die we die alone
Even looking in the face
Of the one we loved so long but then it’s over
It’s all done

If we knew we had one day
Before the final kill
Would we be together still or would it matter
Would you go or would you stay
Would you turn and run away
Would you love me till the end like you promised
Or were you lying

When we die we die alone
Even in a lover’s arms
After all we might as well have been just strangers
When we die we die alone
With the heavens and the stars
After all it’s all we are we are nothing

It’s all for nothing...
Track Name: Fat Lady
Fat Lady
©Angry Johnny And The Killbillies, Bonesaw Lullaby BMI

The fences are back but they’re higher now
Once you’re in here you’re here to stay
Till you starve to death or you get blown away

The dancers are back but they’re faster now
Not so much a shuffle more like a jog
And the government goons are slaughtering us like hogs

They’re rounding up the troublemakers now
Shutting us up and locking us down
Taking what’s left for the goddamn chosen few

Bunch of sheep never saw the coming slaughter
Now the devil is here and it’s getting hotter
Still most of them ain’t got a fucking clue

They took our guns then they took our food
Then they took everything they were in the mood for
Then they laughed and they let the beast out of the cage

Now dinner is served the dinner bell is ringing
Listen you can hear the fat lady singing
The aria of mankind’s death up on the stage

Bunch of shuffling Janes and shuffling Joe’s
Just plant them corpses watch ‘em grow
Gonna be a bitter harvest come the fall

It’s time to pick what side you’re on
‘cause pretty soon it’ll all be gone
You gonna fight or you gonna cower behind this wall

You gonna stand up now or are you gonna crawl
It’s never or it’s now
It’s nothing.........or it’s all
Track Name: Scarecrow
SCARECROW
©Angry Johnny And The Killbillies, Bonesaw Lullaby BMI

“BRING HIM TO ME”

It’s time we put a stop to this foolish nonsense
It’s time that we mop up these rebellious fools
If you cannot defeat a bunch of half dead scarecrows
I’ll find somebody who can

Now you say you’ve got him under arrest
Bring him to me on the double
Bring him let me have a look at this pest
Who’s been giving us so much trouble

So you’re the one who’s been a thorn in my side
The one who threw the wrench in my plans
You don’t look like much you’re skin and bones
Just another walking dead man

You will answer for your crimes now
You will answer for your sins
You will choke upon your pride now
You were never going to win anyway

You will tell us what we want to know
You will tell us where they’re hiding
Cat got your tongue well that’s just too bad
Your clock is ticking to it’s ending

“ALIVE BUT ALL ALONE” ©Angry Johnny-Bonesaw Lullaby BMI

Feel cooped up like a rat in a cage
The toys in your attic are crawling
You’re coming undone but there’s nowhere to run
In your head you can hear the dead calling

A walk in the woods won’t do you no good
You won’t be out there alone
Every sound that you hear will be something to fear
The rattling of them bones

The army of dead are moving
They’re coming to take you home

You hear them out there they are everywhere
Like a mouse you just cower and hide
Remember the day when it all went away
When the doorway to Hell opened wide

And quietly there rotting into her chair
The love of your life she festers
Remember she was all you were living for then
What are you living for now

What do you think you’re proving
Alive but all alone

“TELL US” ©Angry Johnny Bonesaw Lullaby BMI

You better tell us your plans now
You know we have our ways
Ways of making you talk
Ways of making you say
Things you want to keep inside
Secrets that you try to hide
You better tell us what we want to know
And we’ll know if you have lied

Don’t try to be a hero
Heroics are for chumps
I’ll count from ten down to zero
And then I’ll light you up
You’re gonna shake like Elvis
You’re gonna shine like a Christmas tree
But if you simply tell us
I’ll put you out of your misery
So tell us what we want to know
Just tell us and be done
Looks like we got ourselves a real tough guy
It’s time to have some fun
Get ready boy to dance now
Get ready boy to cry
Get ready boy to sing now
Get ready boy to die
Track Name: Lord Take Me Home
LORD TAKE ME HOME
©Angry Johnny And The Killbillies, Bonesaw Lullaby BMI

My body’s going to the graveyard Lord take me home
My body’s going to the graveyard Lord take me home
My body’s going to the graveyard I don’t need it anymore
Oh Lord come and take me home

Their knives cut just like butter Lord take me home
I did not cry I did not utter Lord take me home
One little single plea for mercy ‘cause their evil cannot hurt me
Oh Lord won’t You take me home


And then they hit me with the wire Lord take me home
Oh it felt just like devil’s fire Lord take me home
I just said turn that thing up higher I’ve barely begun to perspire
I’m ready won’t You take me home

Now here comes the solder iron Lord take me home
Oh it smells like someones frying Lord take me home
Some chicken in the summer I’ve awakened from my slumber
Oh Lord come and take me home

All of the pain that they’ve inflicted Lord take me home
Oh it’s sweetly contradicted Lord take me home
By the love of that sweet angel reaching down to take my hand
Oh Lord I’m a’comin’ home home
Track Name: Dance Of The Shufflers Part Four
Dance Of The Shufflers Part 4 ©Angry Johnny And The Killbillies,
Bonesaw Lullaby BMI

Now there are just the few of us
The shufflers got the rest of us
Then the government got the stragglers
Just the unlucky and damned remain

Now death is nothing new to us
There’s nobody left that you can trust
Shoot first and don’t ask no questions
Make sure you hit the brain

Keep on dancing like St Vitus
With seven angels in his cell
The virus is inside us
Now only time is gonna tell
First your bones will start a’crickin’
You’ll rot and ripen on the vine
Then the devil will come a’pickin
Welcome to the end of time

I struggle to remember now
I struggle to remember how
How this darkness fell upon us
How we could have been so blind

I struggle hard to picture her
The past is just a bloody blur
I wonder if we ever were
Was it only in my mind

Keep on dancing like St Vitus
The seventh trumpet the third woe
There’re coming hot with all they got
Armageddon is a go
The architects of our destruction
Are gonna feel their bellies boil
They’ll gnaw their tongues in agony
They’ll finally taste their bitter spoils





I’m just another walking scarecrow
All dressed up nowhere to go
I hear those choppers coming in
Come get some while you can

Hell is all that’s waiting for me
There’s a trail of death behind me
Until a snipers bullet finds me
I’ll kill as many as I can

And I’ll keep on dancing like St Vitus
Strike you down like Jezebel
And the dogs will feast before the beast
Drags you wailing down to Hell
I’ll find the rock you’re hiding under
I will set your house aflame
And I will tear your world asunder
I swear you’ve never known such pain

You left the world in ruin
You burned the whole thing down
And then you hid like vermin
While you burrow underground

But the devil has abandoned you
Your bunkers have been breached
There’s shufflers in the tunnels now
Welcome to the feast

We’ll be dancing like Saint Vitus
With seven angels in his cell
But our angels won’t be Heaven-sent
They’ll boil straight up from Hell

Once the hunger gets inside us
Fire burns inside our head
Our bones’ll crick when we get the sick
And we’ll dance among the dead
