About this album

Described by many as a blend of Evanescence, Garbage and NIN, the power of NLF reaches deep within the soul of mortality grasping at the very essence of what it means to be human in the 21st Century. Trainwreck is an expression of restrained power. It’s an avalanche of controlled chaos, it's a cacophony of atom splitting held within the tightly clenched fist of the sound gods. It's a demonstration of swallowing a perfect storm and coming out standing on the other side. It's a miracle of survival and it restores my faith in humanity. House of Shame...hmmmm.....this is somewhat of an updated, modern day version of the old classic song "House of the Rising Sun", but from a female perspective...and with significant plot changes. Here we hear about a young lady whose life/world falls apart when her lover leaves her and she remains within her own house of shame where the very walls drip daily with her painful existence. Satan's Witch's Brew represents pure, unadulterated materialism with lack of remorse in all of its egotistical splendor. And finally, what can one say about Sledgehammer other than its pure love, unfettered by the distilling of fear and ignorance into hate.

Lyrics

Sledgehammer

She’s got that big sledge hammer slung up way above the crowd
She’s aiming for some fun so long the volume stays this loud
Her hair’s all twisted rough cut with the temples shaved clean bald
I know I’ve seen the gods before but never been so mauled

CHORUS
SHE’S MY SULTRY SLAMMER AND SHE’S TEARING UP THE TOWN
CRACKING HER SLEDGE HAMMER WITH HER FEET ABOVE THE GROUND
SHE’S OFF HER MEDS AND TRYING HARD TO SIMULATE HER DOUBLE
MY SPICY SWEET SLEDGE HAMMER GAL IS LOOKING FOR REAL TROUBLE

She’s slamming out her dreams just like luscious lullabies
I can barely hear her voice what with all these screams and cries
She’s piercing through the barriers that hold back love and hate
She’s reached full hysteria cause she’ll no longer wait
(spoken):
Her full range of emotions stretches clear to outer space
And when she skips her lotions she’s got such a pretty face
I’ll follow her to heaven when she strikes the final blow
And breathes consideration as the blood begins to flow

CHORUS
SHE’S MY SULTRY SLAMMER AND SHE’S TEARING UP THE TOWN
CRACKING HER SLEDGE HAMMER WITH HER FEET ABOVE THE GROUND
SHE’S OFF HER MEDS AND TRYING HARD TO SIMULATE HER DOUBLE
MY SPICY SWEET SLEDGE HAMMER GAL IS LOOKING FOR REAL TROUBLE

BRIDGE
Tie that rip cord to my chest
Mother Nature’s burden is to trap the scary beast
Spin my heart felt dial
Nothing but the truth will do when wisdom come to feast
I was here before the rest
Ice flows thru her veins with lightning accuracy
Let’s be one in style style

CHORUS
SHE’S MY SULTRY SLAMMER AND SHE’S TEARING UP THE TOWN
CRACKING HER SLEDGE HAMMER WITH HER FEET ABOVE THE GROUND
SHE’S OFF HER MEDS AND TRYING HARD TO SIMULATE HER DOUBLE
MY SPICY SWEET SLEDGE HAMMER GAL IS LOOKING FOR REAL TROUBLE

Satans Witchs Brew

I’ve left you dear I’m through with you
My Facebook page confirms it’s true
I’ve found a man with loads of cash
Tonight we’ll have a victory bash

I’ve wandered near I’ve wandered far
I’ve sucked on Bourbon soaked cigars
They call me bitch they call me whore
The thing I always want is more

Chorus
Feed me Satan’s witch’s brew
I’m gone now I won’t stay with you
I’ve dumped the man whose child I bore
In favor of more earthly score
Feed me Satan’s witch’s brew
I’m gone now I won’t stay with you

The mystery march the pagan’s sins
This mother’s moral waste begins
I text you this divorce decree
I turn my back on what could be

REPEAT CHORUS

BRIDGE
I am death I destroy life
I’ll kill this man who made me wife
I’ll drain his bank asset account
And then I’ll find someone to mount

REPEAT CHORUS

Trainwreck

The shutting doors the strutting whores
Misfits every one
The hateful stares the warning glares
My journey has begun

The maddening cries the yearning whys
Boredom spiced with sin
The restlessness within true bliss
The hopelessness begins

(chorus)
Whiplash waves of infamy
This trainwreck called my life
Nullifying ecstasy
All breathless full of fright
Where is precious liberty?
The wisdom of true light?
Whiplash waves of infamy
This trainwreck is my life

The bloody glove the worn out love
The festival of greed
Heroes resign the warning signs
The century’s new breed

The burning pain the bright red shame
The family’s second thoughts
Uphill we swim but never win
Happy can’t be store bought

(repeat chorus)

House of Shame

It hurt so bad when you left me it turned my insides out
The searing pain morbid self blame the shrieks I'm screaming out
I cannot soothe there is no balm to wrestle calm these nerves
I’m drained, I’m spent, no energy, I’ve lost all my reserves

(chorus)
House of Shame, its you I blame, I kick you in the teeth
I’ll burn you down, bury your crown, my children I bequeath
This house of shame this place of pain with shadows all around
This recalcitrant vagabond of loveless silent sounds
House of Shame, its you I blame, I kick you in the teeth
I’ll burn you down, bury your crown, my children I bequeath
This house of shame this place of pain with shadows all around
This recalcitrant vagabond of loveless silent sounds

Roofless adobe whose dreams corrode don’t know how to behave
It’s raining sins in rusty bins beneath those I forgave
The hollowness the shallowness the walls that cannot breathe
The growing mounting tragedy of Satan’s last reprieve

(repeat chorus)

(bridge)
Shriek oh shriek the fathoms reek
Decaying mortal flesh
Thunderbolts abnormal folks
Who testify in jest
Who testify in jest

(repeat chorus)
