They were the first rock band in 36 years to perform in communist Vietnam, when a Hard Rock Cafe was opened in 2009.
In 2013, the band made it through 3 elimination rounds and performed live in NYC, at Radio City Music Hall, on America's Got Talent!

Track Name: ...And Another Thing
A thick-legged woman ain’t never getting lovin’ from me
Cocktail in her hand, whoring ‘round until she’s slurring her speech
She whines “it isn’t my fault, I had too much to drink,
But I’ll give myself up to the first guy I see”
That’s why a thick-legged woman ain’t never getting lovin’ from me

Hey, and another thing…

Bringing home the bacon while she’s lying in my bed
Won’t give it up cause she says that there’s an ache in her head
Don’t bother getting work girl, I’ll cover you instead
But you best not act entitled saying “Listen what I’ve said”
While I’m bringing home the bacon and you’re bitching from my bed

Hey, and another thing…

Long-legged beauty dressing classy and looking so fit
Leanin’ ‘gainst the bar acting like she’s gonna give what she gets
Turning all the heads with her mini-skirt slit
But someone somewhere is sick of her shit
I said a long legged beauty like her don’t impress me one bit

Hey, and another thing…
Track Name: The Proposition
I ask you boys to listen close
For these next words concern you both
Your mother birthed a foul kin
But you are nowhere near like him
Your brother is a heathen hound
The king of death, he can be crowned
So here it is, my proposition
To save your souls and find redemption
Oh yes

Find your brother, end his reign
Or bring him here and let him hang
I’ll spare the younger one from death
So you both can walk free of this mess
For God has damned this awful place
And everyone in the human race
He offered us a proposition
I know he knew we’d never listen

Oh yes, what fresh hell is this
A dead man’s land in the Devil’s fist
Oh yes, what fresh hell is this
A dead man’s land devoid of bliss

There is a happy land
Far, far away
Where saints in glory stand
Bright, bright as day
Oh how they sweetly sing
Glory to the savior king
Loud let his praises ring
Praise, praise for aye

There is a happy land far, far away
There is a happy land far, far away
Track Name: She's Got Seoul
She moves just like water flows, flowing seamless
And she wades waist deep through the world
She moves me; she schools me I hang on each word
Like a breath, who’s this beautiful girl?

And she lies in wait while I hide my distaste
For all others who try to break through
‘Cause she knows that I know that she’s one of a kind
She’s a killer, the one who broke through

She’s got Seoul
She’s got Seoul

Her smile is the reason the world changes seasons
The wet from the fresh morning dew
Her eyes bear no sadness, her mind wears no madness
Her life carries nothing to prove

While I sit and I watch and I wait for this woman
To see me and know what I dream
Oh I think through the time how I’d fit in her life
And it makes all my impatience scream

She’s got Seoul
She’s got Seoul

Does she even know my name?
I don’t want to know

She’s got Seoul
She’s got Seoul
Track Name: The Watcher
Get under the bed
They’re coming up the stairs
You will be found
You hear the turning key
You feel them underneath
You will be found

Get under the bed, they’re coming up the stairs
You will be found, you will be found
They want you to believe and they whisper in your ear
You will be found, you will be found

But when they come, I will be waiting
Yes, when they come, I will be waiting

These dogs can hear you breath, these beasts can taste your fear
You will be found, you will be found
The dark I cannot see, only gnashing of their teeth
You will be found, you will be found

But when they come, I will be waiting
Yes, when they come, I will be waiting here

Waiting for you
Like I swore to
Never needing, longing, reaching
Way too long, way too long I’ll wait here
Waiting for you
Like I swore to
Never needing, longing, reaching
For way too long, way too long
I will wait for you
Track Name: Devil's Country
Out here in the desert that woman comes to me
She tells me that I should sign in blood and it sets me free
Oh out here in the moonlit sky, that woman drinks to my soul
And what was once so beautiful has now become so cold

She waits, she waits, she waits, she waits by the water hole
She burns, she burns, she burns, she burns through the deep dark reaches of my twisted soul
Out in the desert, man, she’ll take you for one hell of a ride
She may be the Devil’s angel but that bitch, she is my bride

Oh, how lonely life has become for me out here
I have the taste of the blood that stains the steel of my guns
I bite the flesh of the broken body that lies there frozen in fear
And I dance in the night to the beat of that goddamn Devil’s drums, oh God

She waits, she waits, she waits, she waits by the water hole
She burns, she burns, she burns, she burns through the deep dark reaches of my twisted soul
Out in the desert, man, she’ll take you for one hell of a ride
She may be the Devil’s angel but that bitch, she is my bride

A burning light shines bright before me
A cunning man there appears in red
He hands me the golden phone of God and
The word of our dear Lord is said
“Rise up from the ashes, son
And go forth to the screams
In the shadow of the valley of death
It just ain’t what it seems”
So I rose from the desert floor and I
Broke loose of her chains
So with both hands I raised my gun
And I let loose her brains, oh God

She waits, she waits, she waits, she waits by the water hole….
Track Name: What Isn't Could've Been
Tell me, baby girl, why you're leaving so soon?
Is it something we can fix or try to work through?
Your body reeled me in just like cocaine
And you hung me out to die while you're laughing in my face
Why'd I let you in?

You were my unicorn, the unobtainable
I gave you all I had to give but I still wasn't able
To let you go and to pull you in
If hell is where I'd get to you then Goddamn I'd start to sin

I was your Romeo
We wreaked havoc on the throne
But you forced me to let you go
So just pack your shit and leave me here alone
All alone
All alone
So just pack your shit and leave me here alone

And you were beautiful, but you fooled the rest
I hope you wear that scarlet letter across your cheating, lying chest
You might think I'm cynical, but baby it's the truth
You may think you're on top of life but baby life is through with you

I was your Romeo
We wreaked havoc on the throne
But you forced me to let you go
So just pack your shit and leave me here alone
All alone
All alone
So just pack your shit and leave me here alone

I said I loved you, baby girl, but I only loved your "used to be"
I hate the woman you became that consumed every part of what was left of me
Though I hope you know that life is coming back a hundred-million fold
Your friends and all your family will forget you out there in the cold
And I hope this re-plays in your mind over and over and over again
So when you look at my face, baby, you'll see what isn't could've been

I was your Romeo
We wreaked havoc on the throne
But you forced me to let you go
So just pack your shit and leave me here alone
Track Name: Symmetry
Say again, your words were lost in that last transmission
And no one hears you; your purpose here is wearing thin
And not for nothing but since when did you have boundaries
The line has been broken before but you; you’ve made it a mockery
The feeling we’ve all felt before, it tingles the skin and arms the defenses
You’re nothing, but something has exposed your pretenses

You lied and they listened
They wanted symmetry
This world has believed you
This world has been deceived

That’s why I say blow it all to hell, let the pieces fall wherever they may fall
Cause if it were up to me, the puzzle would never be put back together at all

There must have been some kind of miscommunication when
The lies that you told turned around on you and you lied down in bed with them
The will to survive in you left long ago but still you stand there hopelessly fighting
Our leader, you’re something, your world to us now means nothing
You lied and they listened
They wanted symmetry
This world has believed you
This world has been deceived

That’s why I say blow it all to hell, let the pieces fall wherever they may fall
Cause if it were up to me, the puzzle would never be put back together at all
No, never at all

Our holy father, your will is frightening
Our newest martyr, your noose is tightening
They gave you everything
All they wanted was a little give and receive
All they wanted was symmetry
Just a little symmetry
But you took their “everything”
And you left them with nothing
And still they loved you, loved you, loved you
Track Name: Heaven Sent Hell Bent
Every now and then the pure they call upon us
For the Cleansing
I gave my better half for all that was meant
The passion for my girl was stolen by
A smoking gun
Although I still look back at times

Her kiss wont shake what the hell I’ve done
I gave up my girl for a smokin’ gun

Because I’m
Heaven sent Hell bent that’s what I wanna be
Ill low-crawl through this shit
That’s what’s become of me
My body may be scarred but there’s a smile on her face
When staring back at me

So sleep calmly in bed
And peaceful at night
On your behalf I’ll take the violence
For you little girl
I’ll end the fight

Been called a devil I don’t give a damn
Your little angel sees just what the hell I am
Track Name: The Finale
Look at me and tell me you see happiness
The overwhelming feeling of vast emptiness
Find a way to safely pull me out of this
And fire away

Look outside and tell me just how safe you think it is
I see your face you still seem cold and so emotionless
You’re not with me but you’re not my antithesis
So fire away

Everyone and everything
Take for granted all they see
Everyone will lose control, control

Fire your gun at the sky
See the crowd on the ground
And if I’m still alive
The bullet missed me on the way back down

Give me a chance and I’ll take you down
Into the end of everything
Track Name: Can't Take the Fire Away
I woke to find that you’d abandoned me and every little thing you could dream
For you the grass was always greener, from the crop you’re always taking the cream
And you run for cover
I’ll tower over all
I’ll suck the comfort from your scene, yeah

I hope he’s everything I never was and never hoped that I could be
In time he’ll see that you’re a woman who can never possibly be pleased
While you run for cover
I’ll tower over all
And I’ll suck the comfort from your scene

You can’t take the fire away from me
You can’t take the fire away
So fire away

So climax and climb the social ladder, and continue sleeping your way through
Burn down the bulk of all your bridges until everyone is through with you
While you run for cover
I’ll tower over all
And I’ll suck the comfort from your scene

You can’t take the fire away from me
You can’t take the fire away
So fire away
Track Name: Soundtrack of Violence
This is the time when the battle is raging
The front lines of war have spread out to our homes
Our leaders have pushed us like dirt in the corner
And apathy gets you a grave marked “unknown”

This is the soundtrack of violence
Our fears will burn them from the thrones
We can’t shake this burden of silence
It’s time they fear the barking of the drones

“Signs of the times” so they say to the masses
Turn in your freedom for total control
It’s not the way we were founded
It’s not the way we should go
Stand up and point yourselves at them
Stand fast lest your blood start to flow

This is the soundtrack of violence
Our fears will burn them from the thrones
We can’t shake this burden of silence
It’s time they fear the barking of the drones

It’s a social agenda, you must be complacent
Umbilical cords running straight through your cage
Stand down, they preach from the pulpit
Just do, don’t question your faith
Reach in and hold to your iron
Show them that we don’t need their waste

This is the soundtrack of violence
Our fears will burn them from the thrones
We can’t shake this burden of silence
It’s time they fear the barking of the drones
