Sometimes in my life I feel that I've lived in vainWe battle through our lives, we drive ourselves so insane. The only way we grow is through our own hatred. One more day of lies is one more thats wasted. And how I see we live our lives we're victimized for we've all so waited much to long.And now I see the signs, you steal my prideWELL STEP IN LINE BECAUSE I KNOW YOU'RE IN DANGERWe waste the Earth, we do not care what we've taken. Can we survive through the hell we are makin’? A time to live a time to die it's our nature. React with ego's, penalized we will waste here. And how I see we live our lives we're victimized for we've all so waited much to long. Aand now I see the signs, of suicide.WELL STEP IN LINE BECAUSE I KNOW YOU'RE IN DANGERSolo OppeltFather, we are in danger. Our Mother, she is a stranger. Save the Earth I feel we all should endeavor, now forever. Do not set the price we will pay out of pleasure, now and forever. And how I see we live our lives we're victimized. For we've all so waited much to long. And now I see the signs, we’re all to die for.WELL STEP IN LINE BECAUSE I KNOW YOU'RE IN DANGER
Wiping my Eyes
Judge me not before you know my name. What a shame. Looking out to see who you can blame. What is there to gain? I see you as you walk before my eyes and wipe away my vision. You treat me as if I am blind. As your wiping my eyes. Our society dies. Why do you sow such displeasure? The pain you spread I can not measure. It's not my fault that you feel this way. Take these words that I have spoken. Symbolic form of knowledge token. It's not my fault the world turned out this way. Love someone until you hate them. Do not instantly degrade them. Figure it out and balance out your soul. Help someone until they hurt you. Give someone, someone to turn to. Even if, that person you do not know. And quit wiping my eyes. Stop letting me die, inside. Strangers as we 're walking down the halls. To find our mortal selves. And I know we've waited much to long to get up off our shelves. Alone we're paranoid of what we'll find. So we change our eye's...........YOU'RE PISSIN ME OFF!Solo OppeltLook at the sign's and stop wasting your life and stop wiping my eye's. AND PUT OUT THE FLAMES! Tare out your pride and no longer divide relations inside OF WHAT'S IN YOUR BRAIN!Now I know before I lay my eye's at night. I pray for the time To gently pass us by.Quit wiping my eyesWIPING MY EYES!

So many jobs to do for each show, How did you do it?
Grimlock had some of the most loyal followers and helpers. Without them Grimlock never would have had the success that it did. Rusty Lamkin, David Longcamp, BJ Sykes, Steve Williams, Jason Gipson, John Althoff, Allen Oppelt, Jeff Higgins, and the entire Smith family were integral in getting the job done. They helped in every aspect, from getting to the show to having a place to practice. The above mentioned made sure it happened.
John Althoff created this image for the 3 song demo nicknamed Grim Village. Grim Village sort of stuck and the art lay packed away for more than 25 years only to be made into a super bad ass Grimlock Tee Shirt.
