Lyrics

I am the Law - Anthrax

Fifteen years in the academy
He was like no cadet they'd ever seen
A man so hard, his veins bleed ice
And when he speaks he never says it twice
They call him Judge, his last name is Dredd
So break the law, and you may wind up dead
Truth and justice are what he's fighting for
Judge Dredd the man, he is The Law

DROKK IT

With his gun and bike he rules the streets
And every perp he meets will taste defeat
Not even Death can overcome his might
Cause Dredd and Anderson won the fight
When the Sovs started the Apocalypse War
And Mega-City was bombed to the floor
Dredd resisted and the Judges fought back
And crushed the Sovs with their counter attack

DROKK IT

Respect the badge, he earned it with his blood
Fear the gun, your sentence may be death because...

I AM THE LAW
And you won't fuck around no more - I AM THE LAW
I judge the rich I judge the poor - I AM THE LAW
Commit a crime I'll lock the door - I AM THE LAW
Because in Mega-City...
I AM THE LAW

In the Cursed Earth where the mutants dwell
There is no law, it's just a living hell
Anarchy and chaos as the blood runs red
This would change if it were up to Dredd
The Book of Law is the Bible to him
And any crime committed is a sin
He keeps the peace with his Lawgiver
Judge, Jury and Executioner

DROKK IT

CHORUS

CRIME - the ultimate sin
Your iso-cube is waiting when he brings you in
LAW - it's what he stands for
Crime's the only enemy and he's going to war

Dredd Song - The Cure

Never say it's over, never say the end
Every time you stop, just start again
Never say give up, never say give in
Always have to fight to win
However much it hurts, however much it takes
Believe in all your dreams will all come true
However hard it gets, however much it aches
Always believe in me as I believe in you

To never say do, never say it's done
Nothing you know is real if you are the one
The one that never charges, never walks away
One that I can trust to always stay always stay

Never say surrender, never say die
The only way you'll get there if you try
Never say give up, never say give in
You always have to fight to win
However much it hurts, however much it takes
Believe in all your dreams will all come true
However hard it gets, however much it aches
Always believe in me as I believe in you
As I believe in you as I believe in you
As I believe

Never say it's over, never say regret
Only the weak can never do it
Never say it's over, never say the end
Never say never ever again
However much it hurts, however much it takes
Believe in all your dreams will all come true
However hard it gets, however much it aches
Believe in me as I believe in you.

Mutants in Mega-City One - The Fink Brothers

Judge Dredd: What's up, Earthlets?

Hysterical Citizen: Mutants have entered the city!

MCTV Newsflash: From their holes in Cursed Earth
The mutants cross the chem-cloud burst
Nothing in their hearts but hate
They're breaking down the city gates

Judge Thud: All Citizens, stay in your zones
Do not panic, the Judges will protect you,
Repeat, do not panic (Stay in your zones)

Rookie Judge: From Justice Hall to Zappa Block,
We patrol the streets around the clock

Sister Sump: Judge, Judge, Judge, Judge, Judge, Judge, Judge, Judge Dredd!

Mutie: My God, my brain's exploding!

Caruso Block Male Voice Choir: Try to hide, you could not run away!

Memphis Mutants: Sixteen Muties on a dead norm's chest
Heatseeker bullet will do the rest, yo ho, yo ho, yo ho

Sister Sump: When Mutants are waiting on every corner
Remember to call for Judge Dredd

Lawmaster Bike: Survival factor 75% and decreasing, 60% and decreasing

MCTV Newsflash: The city's being overrun by mutants!

Joe Norm: I am normal, not no juve, I am getting out of my cube
I am normal, I am clean, I'm not frightened and I won't scream

Sister Sump: When you're in danger, and you are frightened
Remember to call for Judge Dredd

Joe Norm: Why should I call anyone? I am not frightened.
Why should I be frightened? AAAAIIIIEEEEEEEE!!!!!!

Sister Sump: When Mutants are waiting on every corner
Remember to call for Judge Dredd.

Mutie: Don't be slow, have to run, Mutie coming with his gun!

Mutie: Don't stop - you gotta keep running.

Judge Dredd: Judge Dredd.

Mutie: Don't stop - you gotta keep running.

Judge Dredd: What's up, Earthlets?

Mutie: Don't stop - you gotta keep running.

Judge Dredd: I am The Law.

I AM . . . JUDGE DREDD.

I am the Law - Human League

My life- I`m a fool for you
you who take no advice
you who think evil doesn`t exist
just because you deny it is true

You`re lucky I care
for fools like you
You`re lucky I`m there
to stop people doing the things
that you know they are dying to do

You know I am no stranger
I know rules are a bore
But just to keep you from danger
I am the law

A dog must bark
so evil calls
both in the wild and
within these walls

repeating....

You`re lucky I care
for fools like you.....

Mega City 3 - Spizzenergi:2

Its the biggest on the planet
Where the tallest buildings stand
With the highest population
And where nothings made by hand

They got the latest thing in travel
That go at the fastest speed
Where everything is plentiful
There is no need for greed

Everyone is wonderful
And everywhere is clean
Everything is possible
In Mega City 3

More television stations
Than in Mega One and Two
The largest civic centre
And the biggest indoor zoo

No need for aggravation
Theres no need for violent crime
With everything they wanted
And they even get more time

Everyone is wonderful
And everywhere is clean
Everything is possible
In Mega City 3

Everyone is wonderful
And everywhere is clean
Everything is possible
In Mega City 3

Everyone is wonderful
And everywhere is clean
Everything is possible
In Mega City 3

Everyone is wonderful
And everywhere is clean
Everything is possible
In Mega City 3

Everyone is wonderful
And everywhere is clean
Everything is possible
In Mega City 3

Why don't you go today
Go take a holiday

A man could live forever in Mega City 3

Hanging out with Halo Jones - Transvision Vamp

Well they used to call me Queen Bee
'Till I threw the throne
Hummin' all day man
That's for the drones
Then it was leather and chains
A real wild child
Now it's the sonic groove
And an ivory smile - oh, if looks could kill
Hey now, I'm a girl of the times
A child of design
Romance, romance is cool
But I've got things to do


I'm hanging out with Halo Jones
So don't call round 'cos I won't be home
I'm hanging out with Halo Jones
Hanging out with Halo Jones
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah!

Now Halo Jones, she's a nuromancer
Well, she looks like a dream
and she moves like a panther
Halo, Halo Jones
Is a girl of ice and fire
She got everything
That all the boys desire

But if you're asking, then the answer's no
Got things to do and places to go
We're heading out for independence no
I'm hanging out with Halo Jones
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah!

Well let me tell ya now
All the guys just wanna shoot
They say we're sweet, huh
They say we're cute
But we know, yeah we know, we know
That it ain't so, ah, ah, no way

Now we're skyward bound
Looking down on the city lights
Me and Halo
Heading out on the late night flight
Hey now, I'm a girl of the times
A child of design

I'm hanging out with Halo Jones
Don't call round 'cos I won't be home
Got things to do and places to go
Just leave your intentions on the answerphone
I'm hanging out with Halo Jones
Hanging out with Halo Jones
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah!

And we know, yeah we know, yeah we know
That we gotta go, gotta go, gotta go, go
Go, go, go , go with Halo Jones
