Track Name: Full Moon Ritual Mutilation On Dope And Alcohol!
I get into a trance and watch the moon rise
Obscured by clouds in the night sky
I got dope and alcohol by my side
And will forget what happens tonight

Chorus:
Full moon ritual mutilation on dope and alcohol
Body parts on my table
And a head in the refrigerator

I feel the rush of alcohol through my veins
And the dope now controls my brain
And with no respect for eternal rest
I take the knife and distort the flesh

Chorus


'As can be concluded from the title, I think this one’s also composed on dope and alcohol. The recordings I made for this song turned out to be pretty good. It’s an uplifting song about degrading a human being. The title is much inspired by the great horrorgoredeath metal band Necrophagia. Full Moon Ritual! was the first one to be recorded for the Misanthropicus Fanaticus!-cd, and was basically the reason to start working on a second full-length. The song has been on every Ramirez live set list since the final version made its live debut on June 1st, 2007, but it may have been played once or twice in 2006 with a different third and fourth line in the second verse.'
Track Name: I Reload My Gun!
Once more Trouble comes a-knockin' out my door
I'm on the run with a gun like I've been before
I don't stop for no one
And nothing ever gets in my way
Step aside, or it might just end today

Chorus:
I reload my gun for the pleasure is mine
One of the few willing to cross that line
To be part of the elite that decides
Who will live on and who's destined to die

I don't murder them for their money or gold
But for the mere sight of the scene that will unfold
It's all in the hand with the gun
And it draws the line between life and death
So step aside one more time, or take your last breath

Chorus


'Kinda the title track of the Reload Your Gun!-cd, but not on it because it was written eight months after the first album release. The lyrics are about a murderer who murders for the thrill of it all, and for the power being one to decide on life and death. Over and over again. It took me some time before I was satisfied with the lyrics and especially with the music, but the song was only performed at Ramirez gigs once or twice (February 23, 2008, and probably June 1, 2007). At the end of the song there’s little twin-guitar part inspired by the Swedish blackened death metal band Dissection. Their guitarist, singer and main composer (as well as a convicted accessory to murder, serving a jail time from 1998 until 2004) Jon Nödtveidt shot his brains out in August 2006, because he thought he had made enough music.'
Track Name: The Axe Aboard Would Bring Misery!
The KW171
Sailed out in the early morning sun
Fishermen they were meant to be
Fearing God and the North Sea

In the open sea after some days
One of the fishermen got insane
The axe aboard would bring misery
Murder arose from insanity
And three were killed on the North Sea

The legend tells that the fisherman thought
He slaughtered the Devil in the name of the LORD
And it is said that he lowered all sails
Safely in the hands of God, He won't fail

For days and nights they floated on
Praying to survive
And singing hymns to praise the LORD
And his son Jesus Christ

Their prayers were heard
And let by God's hand
The fishing boat washed ashore
On the coast of England

The streets of Katwick are silent now
About what happened ten decades ago
Out on sea blood was shed
Dead bodies on the upper deck
The fishermen went to hell and back


'This one is about the infamous murder case of Katwick at Sea, that happened in September 1915 at the lugger fishing ship KW171. While on the North Sea one of the men apparently thought that the devil was aboard, and he killed some of the others to ward of evil or something. Anyway, the song I recorded about this horror story is a full-blown shanty type of fisherman tune, and features some accordion, a shanty choir consisting of 15 Danny Ramirez's, screeching seagulls and of course the roar of the Mighty Sea itself. Inspiration to write a song like this came after I heard 'Het Bier Zal Weer Vloeien' by Dutch pagan metal band Heidevolk. The Axe! has been played in a stripped down version on acoustic guitar at around 10 Danny Ramirez gigs, with a very early debut performance on April 16, 2005, (just three weeks after the song got written) and the most recent one on November 18, 2016.'
Track Name: This Road We Took Is Leading To Your Corpse!
I drive up and down the street
Only to pick out the cheap
I'll lure you into my car with little money

To pay for your daily rush
You'll do anyhting for some bucks
But today you need relief instead of Class A drugs

Now I drive off to a place
Where your final sight's my face
You're the first dead prostitue in days

So this road we took is leading to your corpse
And in some time it will (may) be found by cops
Murdering you won't take long, I did it before
Just blow the gun, become the next dead whore

And somewhere deep in the woods
I hide your body for good
Who will report a missing prostitute?


'This is another second cd song without a refrain. It is a little bit faster then I'll Live And Die In Sin! that is on this cd as well, but more or less in the same vein. Lyrically it's about some guy in his car picking up prostitutes and murdering them somewhere near the woods, with part of the lyrics taken from the July 2002 song I Will Lure You Into My Car With Little Money!. Similar to the modus operandi of the I'll Live And Die!-song character the victim is buried soon after. He chooses a place deep in the woods to do so, asking himself: 'Who will report a missing prostitute?'. The song has been performed in concert a few times, both on acoustic guitar (2007?-2008, as well as once in 2016) and with an instrumental backing (2009).'
Track Name: You Can Only Do Wrong Today!
I am dressed as a cop, then I will take over
And make you to stop, and then you pull over
My right hand goes down
To where I wear my gun

I walk up to your car while you're in it waiting
It's just a few yards, you're anticipating
Although I walk slow
I'll end up at your window

Chorus:
There's no reason no to trust me
So you don't bother asking my ID
But I did load my gun and I will use it too
And I kill your passenger and you

You put your carwindow down, and I'm at the other side
Then you ask with a frown what you didn't do right
But (And) then I say:
You can only do wrong today

Before you realize, I take my gun
Then you freeze to ice, and so does the other one
And that's the end
For you and your girlfriend

Chorus:
There seemed no reason no to trust me
So you didn't bother asking my ID
Well, I had gun and I will use it too
And it's all over for the both of you


'I still remember that I wrote this song in a very drunken state in late March 2005, and it only took me one hour and 18 minutes to complete it. Later I changed some words in the lyrics, but only in the first two lines ’cause the English wasn’t all that. It is about a murderer dressed as a cop, and of course people in cars stop for people dressed as cops so it is clear what happens in the song, innit? Wrong Today! was done live a couple of times from 2005 or 2006 ’till April 19, 2008.'
Track Name: I Still Have My Gun!
With my knife still in your back
I observe the result of the attack
You are dying in the mud
Slowly losing more and more blood

Chorus:
I still have my gun
I will have my fun
Firing more than once
'Till I'm sure you're done

But first I remove the knife
Then I clean it and wipe it dry
You are moaning at my feet
Adding fuel to my murderous needs

Chorus

Now I put the knife away
And prepare for your dying day
To end your barely living hell
I reach the point I know too well

Chorus


'The lyrics for this one are about a killer who stabs his victim in the back, with the dying victim apparently face down in the mud. To finish him or her off he uses his gun, which sounds after the slow song has ended. It's never been done live.'
Track Name: It Is The Night Of The Horned One!
His names are too many to mention
He comes unyo man in all forms
Not even to be recognized by the shape of his horns

He's called upon me again
Soon I will know where and when
The war on the righteous will begin

Chorus:
It is the Night of the Horned One
With bloodloss and murder to come
Having no will but to kill on and on
Making it last until dawn

When you're one of his you will know
And Into Darkness you'll go
Driven by fires burning deep below

And when the Dark Age arrives
Under the Sign we will ride
The hell pointing pentagram banner held high

Chorus


'Some fine lyrics about The Devil without naming even one his Unholy Names. The song probably has the most metal lyrics of the entire Ramirez repertoire. Horned One! first appeared on the acoustic set list in Spring 2004, and also has been done regularly at Ramirez gigs using instrumental backing -- with the most recent performance on July 19, 2014.'
Track Name: I'll Live And Die In Sin!
A Funeral Moon hangs in the sky
Time for you to say goodbye
This is where your nightmare starts
And where it falls apart

You think I don't, but yet I care
I acre about the time we share
And with some booze and THC
Soon you'll be asleep

You will die by my hand
There's no future here
You will come to your end and
Lose all you do hold dear

And now you're dead, you won't be found
You will be seen no more around
I take my car, take your remains
To bury them some place

Your Funeral Moon has risen high
Its light shines in your staring eyes
I dig the hole and throw you in
I'll live and die in sin


'For some reason I decided to record four songs with no refrain for the second Ramirez cd, this being one of them. The first line refers to Darkthrone's Funeral Moon (1993 album Under A Funeral Moon), 'cause this slow song tells the story of a murderer who sedates his victims at his home with booze, then kills them, and afterwards puts the remains in his car to bury them on a moonlit night. It's been done live a few times, both on acoustic guitar (2007?-2008) and with an instrumental backing (2009).'
Track Name: A Lifeless Scene Of Death Shone Upon By The Moonlight!
The full moon stood still on that fatal night
Reflecting from the blade that slid inside
You never know what had hit you
Over and over again
Didn't knew (know) death would take you there and then

Chorus:
May your remains rest forever
Right on the place where you died
And may your soul go to heaven
And your family be alright

A blood-red silence filled the deep dark night
A lifeless scene of death shone upon by the moonlight
You're never to stand up again
Forever face down in the sand
Never knew death would take you there and then

Chorus
+
But I guess you'll be eaten by scavengers
And be gone by daylight


'A dark, moonlit night and a hillside form the scenery to these lyrics that are about an unexpected murder by stabbing the victim to death. The poor guy never saw it coming. Although his soul might go to heaven, his human remains will be eaten by animals out in the wild. The song was played in concert about 10 times from probably February 7, 2004, until February 23, 2008. On the studio recording for the 2007 Danny Ramirez cd I added some Commercial Untrue Black Metal influences by parodying Cradle Of Filth in the title-line, so the singer of that ten words would be Dani Ramirez, or of course Danny Filth. The rest of the band (drums, bass guitar, keys) comes from the keyboard, and I added some real played electric guitar, of course commercially mixed down to somewhere in the background.'
Track Name: I Drug You And I’ll Take You Home!
Chorus:
I drug you and I'll take you home
You'll be unconscious before you know
It's onto the attic you go
Where pretty soon your ordeal will unfold

I go around the bars late at night
Looking for someone to submit to my might
I'm just there for a talk you think
But when you look away I put some
highly addictive (sedative) sleeping pill in your drinks

Chorus

I have some friends that will join in
For the humiliation to begin
Sedated yet held up in chains
You live your life until the time
I load a gun and cut off your days

Chorus


'Though most of my lyrics are somewhat brutal lyrics, this one is very somewhat brutal. It’s about a guy picking up chicks from bars after he’d put some sleeping pills in their drinks. Of course the drugged victim ends up on the attic to play a leading role in the terrible events that are about to unfold. Later on the victim gets shot. The murder doesn’t take place during the song, but the lyrics tell of the fact that eventually this will happen. I Drug You! was done at about 20 gigs from November 15, 2002, until February 15, 2008, but hasn't been played live since. With Full Moon Ritual On Dope And Alcohol! and It Is The Night Of The Horned One! it nonetheless remains one of the most often performed Misanthropicus Fanaticus! songs.'
Track Name: Until The End Is There For Me!
Death follows me
Since 1973
Many ones I've lost
Life's punishment is way too much

Now what's a man to do
When ev'ry one he knows is due
To leave in the end
Reliving memories of dead friends

The gift of life comes with a price
That no money can buy
You can't escape ev'ry man's fate
When you live you will die

The dark shadow of death
One time crossed my path
And it will not leave
Until the end is there for me


'It seems I wrote most of the refrainless second cd songs in late 2006, 'cause here is the last one of them (the fourth one being The Axe Aboard Would Bring Misery! from March/April 2005). This is another slow one, and it deals with the shadow of death hanging over every one's life. It's not 100% certain if this song has ever been played in concert, but if so most likely only once: either in June 2007 or November 2012.'
Track Name: Mankind Must Die!
There is reason to believe life will be erased
From the face of the Earth by an asteroid from Space
It will be biblical for those who live to tell
It must be great to watch you all go to hell

Chorus:
Mankind must die
Cultures must vanish
No more delay
Collide and end it

There is reason to believe we will stand no chance
To a rock that finally destroys man and his arrogance
Mass destruction's at our doorstep and we're unaware
That if we notice it, it is already there

Chorus


''Originally titled Collide And End It!, Mankind Must Die! deals with the collision of an asteroid or other natural celestial object of significant proportions with Planet Earth. It's quite an up tempo song, of which the cd version ends with a huge explosive impact. Mankind! has been played live twice: June 3, 2007, and February 15, 2008.
Track Name: Free To Rule The Night By The Powers Of Hatred And Weaponry!
The night falls again, I leave my den
Out in the shadows I am the menace
That comes to you when there's no moon
From out of the dark I will stop your heart

Chorus:
There ain't no descriptions or mugshots of me
I've never been caught and I never will be
I keep unnoticed and so I am free
To rule the night by the powers of hatred and weaponry

It ain't the weapon that kills a human
It is the on in control that sets the goal
And in the night I take the right
To kill you and then escape again

Chorus


'Intended for the Misanthropicus Fanaticus! album, but -- with already 12 other tracks scheduled for the cd -- this up tempo song didn't make it to the final track listing. I was thinking of releasing it as the album's bonus track for my Japanese fans, but nobody in Japan ordered the cd. So many years later I decided to add it as a bonus track to the April 2017 Bandcamp online release. The lyrics are about a hateful dude taking cover by darkness to kill by gun, and keeping out of police records and jail so far. The song has never been played at a gig.'
