Holy War 03:45
HOLY WAR by Hammer of the Ozz Big, black shadow hanging over me. Wherever I go there’s terror in the streets. Atrocities creating sorrow and grief, So now it’s time to turn to your beliefs. Holy War far and wide Holy War intentional suicide Save your soul-go run and hide Lucifer is on both sides Bloody bibles and charred Korans, Righteous leaders’ taking pious stands. The children march to the revolution, Singing songs but there’s no solution.
Motorgrinder 02:48
Motorgrinder by Hammer of the Ozz I'm on a mission to getcha to save the world tonight, I'm riding to face into the wind. I'm headed straight toward the moonlight, this time I'm gonna get it right. I'm like a bat outa hell. And I'm layin it down tires burnin the ground shoutin loud on my ten speed bike And I'm feelin mighty lean on my killer machine and I'm armed and I'm ready for a fight. I got the motor for a grinder mounted on my bike. I got the motor for a grinder Fashion metal as you like, yeah the motor for a grinder mounted on my bike. People we're killing the planet and those who inhabit you know it seems like we just don’t care, makin' money outta mole hills destruction and oil spills on top of that were f*ckin' up the air. So I'm smokin' my grass and I'm f*ckin' haulin' ass like a bat from the devils den. I got a hundred spokes of steel flame kits on my wheels and I’m pedaling’ like I'm in it to win I got the motor for a grinder mounted on my bike. I got the motor for a grinder Fashion metal as you like, yeah the motor for a grinder mounted on my bike.
Hey Janet 03:13
Hey Janet by Hammer of the Ozz It grows inside, Inside of me It’s something that you cannot see Sometimes love Sometimes rage It’s the beast and I’m the cage Hey Janet Hey Hey Janet Your Holy War, Is such a bore. Hey Janet Hey Hey Janet Shut your dirty mouth, You really need to can it. So until then It’s up to me From this cage What I’ll set free And if it’s love Than let it be But if it’s rage It need ant be. Together on This fateful day Your handmaid’s tale Shall not prevail We burn it with A stalk of sage If it’s a beast I’m not your cage.
The Fly 06:25
"The Fly" by Hammer of the Ozz I think if I were a fly, an evil fly I would be. I’d come in through the bathroom window and buzz you while you pee. Soak myself and take a bath then when you go to sleep I land right on your bottom lip and never say a peep. The symbols of my master, the evil one who hails I’d grow some horns and a pointed tail and teeth as sharp as nails. And all the while a fire builds and builds from within. This old fly's god is Lucifer, let my of reign terror begin. Let it rain. Let it rain.
Alien Abduction by Hammer of the Ozz Oh no, it's an alien abduction.
"Ashes & Resin" by Hammer of the Ozz Oh I believe there is a great deceiver And I know all of his many names The evil bloody king of the mountain The anti matter Anti god of hate. Taketh your communion cling to your faith The beast that circles your soul he will not wait Abandoned sinners you all lack the faith Jesus of Nazareth did not take the bait He spoke to god and accepted his fate The Temptation denied and the Illusion erased. So far from god.... so far from Heaven So far from love I’m on level seven Its ashes and resin.
"Slaughterbots" by Hammer of the Ozz Whoa oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh Slaughterbots they have no soul SLAUGHTERBOTS EXACT A TOLL Swarm and kill every night killing everyone in sight Whoa oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh Slaughterbots are bought and sold black and white, young and old Swarming like a hive of bees Siamese if you please. Decending from the sky They only care that you die Its the swarm my dream the unborn child, undeard, unseen. Yeah yeah baby, here come the Slaughterbots.
"Hot As The Sun" by Hammer of the Ozz My love is as hot as the sun and never hurt no-one. You take what you give and you live and try to have some fun, yeah. Somewhere in the mix gotta get a fix Gonna take a hit, never gonna quit yeah. Gonna make a call, never gonna fall, God I want it all Never stood so tall, yeah. Gonna drink n dance, gettin’ in her pants Growin stinky plants put you in a trance, yeah. Smoke it to your head, smoke it till your dead, toke it what I said get you in the bed, yeah. I see the silver lining, I see the bright side, I see sunset, sweet sunset.


"Hot as the Sun" is the debut, self produced album by Joshua Tree based rock/metal band "Hammer of the Ozz" (HOTOZZ). The album was written by the band and captures the essence of their Black Sabbath / Led Zeppelin influence. 1. "Holy War" speaks of vocalist "Big Dave" Johnson's experience in Desert Storm. 2. "Motorgrinder" tells of a young man's quest to save the planet on his motorized ten speed bike. 3. "Hey Janet" sung by Lisa Black is about Janet Porter. 4. "The Fly" inspired by Kafka's "Metamorphosis" is a tale of a man who fantasizes about acting revenge upon the religious man who took his virginity as a boy, but first he must become "The Fly". 5. Alien Abduction is about kids in cages. 6. Ashes & Resin is about the many faces of Satan and other diabolical deceivers. 7. Slaughterbots is about new tools of war. 8. Hot as the Sun is about smoking dope and getting laid.
