FAITH IS TORN (DELUXE EDITION)

Part one of this 2018 release, is the band’s 1987 EP “Faith Is Torn." The first four tracks were included on VOD III (2014, now out of print), but now with original artwork from 1987 by one time VOD bassist Bob Craig. What makes this edition “deluxe” is the inclusion of 4 unreleased tracks from a 1988 VOD session that haven’t been heard...ever! These songs were recorded, intending to be on a full length, titled VOD II, but the band broke up shortly after it’s recording. Same lineup as the “Faith Is Torn” sessions, but with Frank Nasta on the drums. The master mix down tapes were held since 1988 by VOD “phantom producer” Mike Delaglio, who had “turned knobs” and financed VOD during their few recording sessions and was never credited. After a somewhat lengthy legal battle, VOD gained control of the recordings, and here they are... in all their evil glory!

Track Name: What I See
Going through my life with a switchblade at my throat
Always feeling lower than I’m told I’m supposed to be
I wish that I could change it but there’s no room for change

What I see I don’t like

Very late at night I walk on down the steps
that lead to hell because i am condemned
I wish that i could change it
cause my time is running out

What I see I don’t like and what I like I don’t see

Very late at night I walk on down the steps
that lead to hell because i am condemned
I wish that i could change it
cause my time is running out

What I see I don’t like

Going through my life with a switchblade at my throat
Always feeling lower than I’m told I’m supposed to be
I wish that I could change it but there’s no room for change

What I see I don’t like and what I like I don’t see
Track Name: I Am Guilty
Beat my head on the wall
I’ll rise until I fall
I’ll stop a plane in flight
Let’s go on the prowl tonight

Mess my head up
Mess my life up
Mess your world up
Mess this place up

Now I’m guilty
They won’t catch me
I see no good
I bet you wish you could

Mess my head up
Mess my life up
Mess your world up
Mess this place up

I am guilty
Track Name: Torn Faith
Let’s dance the night away in someone else’s sleep
Be careful where you step or they might dream too deep
To wake up feeling like the world is underway
To drifting out of sight here comes the judgement day

And then the morning breaks
And then the angels wake
Am I alright after all?

I feel a power source controlling everything
One day when I was young I heard a lizard sing
Then God himself grabbed my head to set me right
But I just turned off day and dove into the night

And then the church bell rings
And then the choir boys sing
Have I lost my mind?

Am I alright?
Track Name: Ride The Whip
Ride the whip that cracks for you
I’ll tell you things you know ain’t true
Make you sweat I’ll make you shake
Breathe fear in every breath you take

Feed my ego off your blood
Make you act the way you should
Things you like soon disappear

Ride the Whip
Ride the Whip

Throw my morals all away
Get some slaves and make them pay
Stop your breathing while you watch
Never again the human touch

Life will shorten everyday
Sell my soul to make you stay
Build a fire for the land
Precious time we waste at hand

Ride the Whip
Ride the Whip
Track Name: The Prophecy
Well end is now
Where is your hometown?
In pieces on the ground
Lay-a ruin before you now

Cities blown to bits
Houses shot to hell
Living? No more souls
My control has taken hold

Bodies human remains
Houses no more homes
Children soon to die
When it’s over you’ll all die

Well end is here
Where are your four walls?
In pieces, on the ground
Lay-a ruin before you now
Track Name: Nasty Ammunition
I know the pain of wanting
I know the secret of life
You lived in the days of torture
You felt the twist of the knife

It was a dark dark day when
they cast me from the sky
I swam the river only
to be the one who never cried

Last night the flowers all died
They shriveled and blew away
I knew that the seasons changing
Would mean another way

Swim down the rancid river
Let’s dive for holiness
You take one final look and
then you go plunging to your death
Track Name: Torn Faith '88
Let’s dance the night away in someone else’s sleep
Be careful where you step or they might dream too deep
To wake up feeling like the world is underway
To drifting out of sight here comes the judgement day

And then the morning breaks
And then the angels wake
Am I alright after all?

I feel a power source controlling everything
One day when I was young I heard a lizard sing
Then God himself grabbed my head to set me right
But I just turned off day and dove into the night

And then the church bell rings
And then the choir boys sing
Have I lost my mind?

Am I alright?
Track Name: Dameron
In time I’ll get to go again
Up to where I’m from
The light shining down from the sky
Another century has come and gone

I was born to make this land all mine
To reap just what I sow
Now it’s getting close to Dameron
And I despise what I’ve become

Protect the people who have done no wrong
They shall inherit the earth
Changing shapes inside another day
The years are what we’re worth

Lets get it right one more time
Travel high into space
Dameron is rising super fast
We got no time to waste

Till we die
