Slayer – Expandable Youth lyrics

Slayer - 1990 - "Seasons In The Abyss"
(Lyrics: King / Music: Araya)

Gun down cold on a raw deal
Home turf my battlefield
In no one's way caught in a crossfire
Stray bullets can kill
Expendable youths
Fighting for possession
Having control... The [sings "a"] principle obsession
Rivalry and retribution
Death the only solution
Injured soul lies on the ground [sings "Injured soul on the hard ground"]
Head blown off face down
Lying in a pool of blood
An accidental death homicide
[Fight-ring you motherfucker (?)]
Solo: Hanneman, King
Struggling to survive
The [sings "This"] drug induced warfare
Having control... And [sings "or"] principle obsession
Expandable youth... Fighting for possession
Violence is only a friend
[this is printed but he sings the ordinary chorus:]
Expendable youth
Fight for possession
To have control... Your principle obsession
Rivalry and retribution
Death the only solution
