about

Crossover deviants IRON REAGAN call upon thee to join the holy order of thrash on their latest full-length, Crossover Ministry! Across 18 tracks and thirty minutes of frantic, punk-metal fury, IRON REAGAN mix a blitzkrieg of relentlessly catchy riffs and irresistible, mosh-ready grooves with punchy, thrash gallops and hardcore punk attitude. Crossover Ministry was recorded by IRON REAGAN guitarist Phil (Landphil) Hall at Blaze of Torment Studios, mixed by Kurt Ballou (Converge, High on Fire, Toxic Holocaust) at God City Studios and features stunning artwork by Bonethrower (Mastodon, Young Widows). On Crossover Ministry, IRON REAGAN prove that they are the new leaders of thrash evangelism. Hear their vicious sermon at a circle pit near you!

Track Name: A Dying World
Plague, anguish, pain
It kills to breath, toxins course through my veins
Welcome to the tragic end of all life

Construct a perfect place
Created living hell

Cannot save a dying world
A dying world
No way to save a dying world

Decay, suffering
Chemical blast, poison air seals our fate
Witness the extinction of humankind!

Construct a perfect place
Created living hell

Cannot save a dying world
A dying world
Track Name: You Never Learn
Fuck up your parents cut a check
I bet you would never expect
Tonight I’d blast that privileged fucking face right off your
head and watch it
Burn
Watch it Burn

Don’t give a fuck if they catch me
I won’t get off I’m not wealthy
Chicken shits like you hide in your parent’s pocketbook
and never
Learn
You never learn

Kill and rape, just pay ‘em off
Immoral checks don’t bounce at all
Corruption profits from disgrace and money buys the
human race
It’s sick

You’re fucked you brainless trust fund kid
My blowtorch says you burn
Track Name: Grim Business
Shut down
From constant pressure
The blinding realization
There’s no way around it
They've already won
They've already won again  

Fucked by this grim business
Victimized by business plans
Bought
This grim business
Pave the way for bigger scams  

And I think about what’s already done
And I’m sure the worst is still yet to come
Is there even a choice for what’s wrong or right?  

What’s wrong or right?
Track Name: Dead With My Friends
Sick of this place I want to be dead with my friends
Sick of this world I want to be dead with my friends
Sick of being stuck in a monotonous pace
Sick of all the words coming out of your face
Sick of my life I want to be dead with my friends

How long should I pretend to care?
How long am I stuck living here?
How long should I keep going on?
Keep going on and on?

Sick of this place I want to be dead with my friends
Sick of this world I want to be dead with my friends
Sick of those always avoiding the truth
Constantly force me to listen to you
Sick of my life I want to be dead with my friends

How long should I pretend to care?
How long am I stuck living here?
How long should I keep going on?
Keep going on and on?

If everyone is a puppet
How am I the only one that sees the strings?
How long will this last?

How long should I pretend to care?
How long am I stuck living here?
How long should I keep going on?
How long how long how long?
Track Name: No Sell
You try to take me down when I start to make my
comeback?!
No sell!
Track Name: Condition Evolution
The losers of a lost war
Strangely glorified
Reminiscing a force of hate
Under the cities guise

Condition evolution
It’s time to move on
Condition Evolution
Get up or get gone
Condition evolution
It’s critical as can be
This condition is your admission to forcing change

Quit holding onto the past
Make progress last!

There’s better ways to look back

Disguising your hatred
In plain sight everyday
Glorifying ignorance
Cluelessly mocking me
Track Name: Fuck the Neighbors
Strangers suggesting I keep my voice down
Just because it’s 5 am
Not my problem or fault you picked this place to live

Fuck the neighbors
Fuck your yard
The more that you complain
The more we’ll go hard

We know you're the one that calls the cops
Then politely waves to our face
Not my problem
We’ll be the last ones to leave this place
Track Name: Power of the Skull
Crawling on hands and knees
Dragging the liquids that you need
Hanging from ceiling beams
Proving the power of the beast

Power of the skull

Forcing all to celebrate
Balancing things with no haste
To prove now once and for all
You’ll feel the power of the skull
Track Name: Crossover Ministry
Here, there’s no false gods
No need to feel wrong
No guilt to be had
A place you belong
A place with respect
The pits our church
It shall bring you peace
You still may get hurt
Don't fall to your knees
Stand up
The cross over ministry

Here, you’ll still feel blessed
Through love all around
Your feet still moving
Your face in the ground
This place gets wrecked
The pits our church
Violence our communion
We’re baptized in dirt
Track Name: More War
More war more war
Non-stop catastrophe
Net profits soar
Our business strategy

More war more war
Let’s make more guns
Let’s charge the poor
They'll never learn

More war more war
We’ll bet your life
It’s right on time
We live you die
Track Name: Blatant Violence
Religious tyrant mobs
Bow or die is the law
The corpses burn
Forced in a false belief
Slaves in a life of grief
Had nowhere to turn…

Death squads stomp
Crushing the skulls of them all
Blood-soaked boots
Torture, murder, the perfect choice for…

Demonic militants
Mass murder evident
The corpses burn
The innocent now prey
Put to death for glory’s sake
Had nowhere to turn…

Death squads stomp
Crushing the skulls of them all
Blood-soaked boots
Torture, murder, the perfect choice for…

Blatant Violence!
Track Name: Parents of Tomorrow
Mom’s on the Internet
Track Name: Bleed the Fifth
Body outlined in chalk
Guaranteed not to talk
Witnessed a murder spree
Can’t let you convict me

Your testimony’s going down with you to the grave
I made sure of it just in case
No one’s gonna put me back into a cage
I think it’s for the best…bleed the fifth

Shouldn’t have run your mouth
You can’t hide from me now
Those pigs are none the wiser
And your fertilizer

Your testimony’s going down with you to the grave
I made sure of it just in case
No one’s gonna put me back into a cage
Especially you

Bleed The Fifth!
Track Name: Megachurch
A massive system of fraud
Built upon the word of God
Gospel of prosperity
Just keep sending in your money
A holy pyramid scheme
That will not submit to anything

They’re costing us millions
So they can live in their mansions
We all turn a blind eye
Their humbleness is a lie

As they light all their candles
They're ripped apart by scandal
How quickly that they forget
They’re supposed to help the poor and the sick
A holy pyramid scheme
That will not submit to anything

On the podium they speak
About giving a hand to the weak
Liquidate their assets
Their separation of classes
But they keep giving them more
More and more
Evangelical eyesore
Track Name: Shame Spiral
Shame spiral spinning out of control

It happened again
It’s spinning around
Building and building
Bringing me down
Shame Spiral is never letting go

Shame spiral spinning out of control

It happened again
Continuous spins
Spinning and spinning
Making you sick
Shame spiral is never letting go

Politely retract the statements I’ve made
Don’t reenact the things you’ve seen
Swear to yourself it’s the lowest you will go
Track Name: Dogsnotgods
I have a whole lot of faith in my heart
And I have a reason to believe
I found an eternal sanctuary
And it’s been right in front of me

I feel the love, I feel the freedom
I’ve seen all there is to see
I feel the spirit, I don't get judged
It comes unconditionally

Dogs not gods

The only time that I really have to kneel down
Is when it’s time to fill the dish
I’m not talking about the ones they’re passing around
That makes these pastors filthy rich
Track Name: Eat or be Eaten
I’m running for my life
They won’t stop until I die

But there it is, glowing
It gives me powers they can’t contest
Now that I have it they’re knowing
The hunters have become the hunted
Track Name: Twist Your Fate
Racing towards Armageddon
We’re going to make it so
No matter how you twist your fate
It’s plain to see we all gotta go

Heading towards extinction
We’re gonna make it fast
The bad news is we’ll miss it
The good news is we’re not gonna last

It’s bleak and fucked
Can we help ourselves?
Is it hopeless yet?
Only time will tell
