STORIES OF A HERO

"Juggernaut"

The time has come
Said a young man to his bride
The train waits outside
And though I leave
You know I'll keep you by my side
She holds on a final time
Soldier's gone to war
Told her he's comin' home
Soldier's gone to war
He's gonna be a hero in his hometown, lord
She stands alone
On a platform lookin' sad
He waves through a pane of glass
And though she hopes
He will be comin' home at last
Her heart knows what's gonna pass
Soldier has gone to war
Don't know it, but he ain't comin' home no more
Soldier has gone to war
He's gonna be known as a hero in his hometown, lord
Soldier's gone to war
Told her he's comin' home
Soldier has gone to war
He's gonna be known as a hero in his hometown, lord
The paper falls to the floor from a trembling hand
The words they burn to the soul
And though she cries, she doesn't really understand
The world's gone so cold
Soldier went to war
Told her he'd be comin' home
Soldier went to war
Gonna be a big hero in his hometown, lord
And the stories tell of bravery, yeah
He was golden as the sun
Well he fought for you and he fought for me, yeah
And he died for everyone
Stories of a hero
Stories of a hero
Well it seems as though the world ain't changed
It goes on and on for years
When men must die to be called brave
To earn respect among their peers
Stories of a hero
Stories of a hero

BABYLON REVISITED

"From The Hip"

Well Babylon, look out
It won't be long now
Your time is running out
Well I see your power, fading out
And I see your hour, coming around
Well I see your children lashing out
Well I see you're going down for the count
Oh Babylon, weep
For what you're gonna reap
Your time has come to sleep
Well I see the writing on the wall
And I see you heading for a fall
And I see the fruits of all your past
Well I see that you're going down baby, at last
Well Babylon, cry
You're gonna wonder why
You're finally going to die
Well I see your power fading
And I see your hour waiting
Well I see the writing on the wall
And I see it's time babe, time to fall

STAND

"From The Hip"

Stand!
Well stand your ground,
Give it everything you can,
Stand!
Well don't fall down,
Turn around and make your stand.
We've only just begun to understand,
What precious moments we have had,
And though the times appear to look so bad,
We must move forward if we can.
Stand!
Well stand your ground,
Give it everything you have,
Stand!
Well don't lay down,
Don't go down, you've got to stand.
Too many times we'll speak of all the bad,
And wag our finger like we know,
It's not enough to be right and not act,
We're measured just by what we show.
Stand!
Make your stand,
Give it everything you can,
Stand!
Don't fall back,
Turn around and make your stand.
The time has come my friend,
We must be one my friend,
If we're to make it till the end.
The quake upon the land,
Has cracked the hourglass,
It's quickly spilling all its sand.
Stand!
I never want to hear that it's too late,
That only makes one lay and die,
A mountain can be moved by just one's faith,
You'll see you only have to try.
Stand!
Make your stand,
Give it everything you can,
Stand!
Don't fall back,
Don't go down, you've got to stand.
The time has come my friend,
We must be strong my friend,
If we're to make it till the end.
Wake up your sleeping heads,
See hope is never dead,
Its light shall shine until the end.
March forward one and all,
Fear not that you may fall,
You have to stand once and for all.
And in your hour of need,
When all's uncertainty,
You must believe, you must believe.
Stand!
Make your stand,
Give it everything you can,
Stand!
Don't fall back,
Don't go down, you've got to stand.

BUDDY

"Maxoom"

Well my friends and I shared many things
and we rode together on Angels wings
and I didn't really care what the future might bring
when I would listen to him playin' and a singin'
When I was feelin' down , he'd lift my spirits high
and at the same time his magic music made me cry
and then one day he just up and died
and I felt all alone as I stood screamin'
Well I said, Buddy! What has happened,
Can you hear me friend?
Buddy!, I didn't see this comin' 'round the bend
Buddy!, Is this the way your story ends?
Well you rest easy and I'll carry on singin'
Well, And now I stand alone and I play my game
Well he's gone away and he didn't even know my name
But, I knew his, he was a man of fame
Well rest easy Jimi and I'll carry on singin'
Cause I said, Buddy! What has happened,
Can you hear me friend?
Buddy!, I didn't see this comin' 'round the bend
Buddy!, Is this the way your story ends
Well rest down easy and I'll carry on singin'

DEAR MUSIC

"Strange Universe"

Goddamn! Are you puttin' me on man?
Are you tryin' to make me wonder just who the hell I am?
Well goddamn! Why is it that you don't understand
Well I'm bloody sick and tired,
of being treated like a garbage can!
Well I know what you're tryin' to do,
but let me say this, fuck, you ain't dealin' with a fool!
Ah, you're so fuckin' cool
Well maybe, I've been a little hard on ya see,
but the burnin' in my soul is drivin' outta my tree
Well I'm sorry, music, if I caused you any pain
But I paid my dues, got nothin' to lose and nothin' to gain
Well I did not mean to be rude,
so let me conclude this, with a letter to you.....
Dear Music,
It seems like years since I felt your soothing hand, 
and I know I really shouldn't say all this, 
cause they tell me I'm only imagining you went away. 
But it's hard you see. I remember your silver seas, 
and satin mountains, and you know it really hurts, 
because, I feel so alone. And I don't think after the way 
I've treated you sometimes that you want me no more,
but anyway music, I have to keep on trying because 
it's the way that I know I've gotta live. You gotta 
understand that being alone ain't to cool, 
and I always feel that loneliness, 
when you don't come to me... and so I get to feelin'... 
that I gotta... live alone... love alone... and cry alone...
and sometimes... I feel I gotta die alone...

DRAGONFLY

"Mahogany Rush IV"

Well listen, someday
You'll hear a rush of wings
So distant, a sound of secret things
There, look there, up in that rusty sky
Yonder, sweeps the dragonfly
So awesome, he blocks the setting sun
He'll come to collect the souls of everyone
Come dragon, come
In from the sun
He floats with an eerie grace
A giant blue green sentinal
From some distant time and space
And because he'll come, he'll have no regrets
Surely he'll come to lay this birth to rest
I know one day you'll see him
But please don't ask me why
He will be a secret dragonfly
Fly dragon fly, here from the sky
So if you hear that sound I'm talkin' about
When you know he's near
When your times run out
Well don't you fear
There's nothing that you can say
Cause he'll appear and take you to that special place
He'll take you there
He'll take you there
He'll take you there
He'll take you there
He'll take you there
He'll take you ........

TALES OF THE SPANISH WARRIOR "Strange Universe"
He was proud, he was cool, he was nobody's fool
And to take away a life was his only rule
He was tough, he was mean, he was a killing machine
And to show a little mercy wasn't his kinda scene
Oh, couldn't he see he'd sold his soul
Oh, I wish that he'd a known
He once stood in the glare of a blazing sun
And the feelin' in his soul said the war was on
And like the angel of death he hovered
Over his enemies face
And struck a deadly blow and felt no disgrace
Oh, didn't he see where he was goin'
Oh, I wish he could'a known
But the day had come around when he'd fight no more
And he lay dead on the ground all battered and torn
Ah, well a slip, he fell down against his will
And seeing this the bull closed in for the kill
And so a man who had fame and a glorious name
He was laid to rest for failin' at his warrior game
And it's sad because he had his chance at life
And he ended up by dyin' from his victims knife
And no more will this man play a warrior game
Well he finally found out that warriors too get wet from rain
And he finally found that kings can end up down a drain
Well warrior man do ya feel you've gone insane
I said warrior man do ya feel, you've gone insane
Well tell me warrior man, do you feel
Warrior man do you feel
Said warrior man do ya feel you've gone insane, yeah

PLAY MY MUSIC

"The Power of Rock and Roll"

I don't wanna look at the T.V. today,
Cause it brings me down,
And I don't wanna hear what the papers they say,
They go round and round
Well let me play my music, anyway I choose it,
I never wanna lose it,
And I'm not gonna fight, got no need to be right,
I'm okay when I'm playin' my rock and roll
I don't wanna know if the countries will fight,
Tho' I'm sure they will,
And I don't wanna go see a volcano show,
It's not my thrill
Well let me play my music, anyway I choose it,
I never wanna lose it,
And I'm not gonna fight, got no need to be right,
I'm okay when I'm playin' my rock and roll
Well let me play my music, anyway I choose it,
I never wanna lose it,
And I'm not gonna fight, got no need to be right,
I'm okay when I'm playin' my rock and roll
Oh I don't wanna try to figure out why,
It drives me mad
Well troubles and trial ain't my idea of fun,
They ain't my fad
Well let me play my music,
Anyway I choose it, I never wanna lose it,
And I'm not gonna cry, No I'm not, long as I,
Feel okay when I'm playin' my rock and roll
Well let me play my music, anyway I choose it,
I never wanna lose it,
And I'm not gonna fight, got no need to be right,
It's okay when I'm playin' my rock and roll
Well let me play my music, anyway I choose it,
I never wanna lose it,
And I'm not gonna fight, got no need to be right,

Feel okay when I'm playin' my rock and roll
Yeah! I won't fight, got no need to be right,
It's okay when I'm playin' my rock and roll

FREE

"Juggernaut"

So you think that you've gone back
To a state of certain madness
And you find it very hard to believe it so
But the moment will arise
When you sing with joy and gladness
And the trappings of the dawn
They will let you go
         
Free, from the situation, going on and on
Free, from the situation, going on and on
         
When the sun melts into night
And the darkness sets around me
I lay down on my bed, and fly
In the morning when I rise
Even more it will astound me
I'll open my eyes and dream
         
Free, from the situation, created by men
Free, from corrupted nations, let me say it again
Free, from the world's deception, going on and on
Free, to sing my song
         
"Enough!" he cried, "enough!"
Amidst the burning rubble and the debris of agony
And the chaos that erupted with the violence of madmen.
"Enough!" he cried, ...
Where the nations leaders stood amongst the 
populace of the faithless,
And the smiles of fortune were cast in gold!
And the inheritance of their forefathers stood 
as a monument of suicide!
"The smell!" he cried, "the smell!"
"I am witness to the damnation
And have seen the contributors of freedom's end!
When the decision of few, made in secret,
Have raped and ravaged those who would lay down 
willingly!
Like a whore unto the universe!"
"Enough!" he cried,
"My people have laid waste the gift of life and 
freedom, and have worshipped 
an abomination,
And have left the spirit of the land with remorse
and desolation!"
         
Trying, Lord I'm trying, Lord I'm trying
Trying, trying, trying, trying ...
Trying to be free
Fighting to be free
Don't you know that freedom is the key
         
Until all nations arise
And be strong and just in my eyes
While a part of me dies for them
Until then I'll be set free
By the magic of my own mind
As I lay on my bed and dream
         
Free, from the situation, created by men
Free, from corrupted nations, let me say it again
Free, from the world's deception, going on and on
Free, to sing my songs

EXCERPT FROM "WHO DO YA LOVE"

I've been ridin' down the highway takin' my time

I look into those eyes, I look into those eyes
And I say...

I got forty seven miles of barbed wire
I got a cobra snake for a necktie
I got a little bitty house on the roadside, 
made out of rattle snake hide
With a little bitty chimney up on top 
made out of human skull
I says, come on take a little walk with me child
         
Tell me, who do ya love
Who do ya love, who do ya love
Who do ya love, who do ya love
Who do ya love, who do ya love
Who do ya love, who do ya love

THE ANSWER
"Mahogany Rush IV"
I’m standing inside a silver room
A sound inside my head like a sonic boom
A preacher with a dagger purple and black
Is tearing sacred pictures
On my naked back

Hey preacher, and he smiles in return
I think you wanna see me burn
You’re squeezing out my blood
Please tell me why
But he proceeded to break down and cry

Oh does anyone know the answer
Tell me Lord, does anyone know the answer

I’m floating beyond a cosmic dream
A feeling in my throat makes me wanna scream
A lover who has no love to spare
Is ripping out the roots of my leather hair

Hey lover, and she made a drunken face
Well put yourself in my place
Please tell me why you wanna see me hurt at all
But she proceeded to break down and bawl

Oh please does someone know the answer
Oh does anybody know the answer

Well I’m old
I’m tired and cold
I’m dripping like a rainy day
I’m searching for a being who’s seen what I’ve seen
And I know I’ll find him someday
I know I’ll find him someday
I know I’ll find him someday


STRANGE DREAMS

"Juggernaut"

Alone at night in the shadows of my room
I drift inside of a magical view
Strange dreams, invade my sleep at night
Strange dreams, they make me feel all right
The place I've seen, well you have to understand
It waits for me, come and meet me if you can
Strange dreams, invade my sleep at night
Strange dreams they make me feel all right
Oh, seems like a million fantasies
Oh, how can I sing the words to tell you all ...
Strange dreams, invade my sleep at night
Strange dreams, they make me feel all right
The dreams of life they belong to you and me
They show us why we can live in harmony
Strange dreams, invade my sleep at night
Strange dreams, they make me feel all right
Strange dreams
Strange dreams
Strange dreams, strange dreams, strange dreams
Strange dreams, strange dreams, strange dreams ...

HOW LONG

"From The Hip"

You been playing with my love baby
And messing with my mind
Trying to make me run to you
All the time
Giving me your love and then
Taking it to him
Well will you ever stop
And mend your evil whims
How long will this keep going on
I want to know
How long must this keep going on
I've got to know how long
In the middle of the night baby
You're calling out his name
You tell me it's alright to love us
Both the same
You'd better think twice baby
And change your plan
Cause I will never share you with
Another man
How long will this keep going on
I want to know
How long must this keep going on
I've got to know
Baby, well maybe you don't realize
Baby, you make me want to close my eyes
And shut you from my heart
Baby, well maybe you don't realize
Baby, you make me want to close my eyes
Well tell me please
How long will this keep going on
I want to know
How long must this keep going on
Well I've got to know...

RISE ABOVE

"From The Hip"

Lo, midst the ash, sits the man,
Stunned, sees the torn, battered land,
How did it come, Lord? He cries,
And what have they done to your prize?
Well I don't want to know,
Knowledge has its price,
Lord I'm growing tired,
I can't fight anymore.
Stroking his brow, with her hand,
Weeping, they now understand,
How can we take up the task?
And where do we begin, Lord? They ask.
Well do we have the will?
A whole world to rebuild,
And won't our seed just kill?
Like before... remember...
We can make it in the end,
We must make it, yeah!
We can rise above it all,
We can rise above!
Rise up!
We can rise above all!
We can overcome all!
Time marches on, for us all,
She measures one, and measures all,
And those whom she finds short of change,
She leaves them behind, in her wake.
The future's locked within,
A box we must look in,
And if we're to begin,
Lord give us the key.
How long shall we wait,
Standing at the gate?
What shall be our fate?
Lord if we fail.
The writing's on the wall,
And mankind shall fall,
Lest he hear the call,
Of sanity.
We can rise above all!
We can overcome all!
We can rise above all!
We can overcome all!

RIDE MY OWN WAVE

And playing a guitar
And by now you should know that I do what I want
And I mean what I say

And I'll never look back 'cause you know

And if you want me to hang

THE WALL CAME DOWN

"From The Hip"

Come you one and come you all,
See the writing on the wall,
As the twilight brings the dark,
So the changing of the guard,
Gather round and sing your song,
Your time is soon, it won't be long... be strong.
Because,
See how the wall came down
See how it tumbled
See how the wall came down
See how it crumbled
Hear the distant guns of war,
We can make them sound no more,
When the young want to survive,
Wisdom sits upon their side,
Sort illusion from the truth,
Cause soon the mantle falls to you... it's true.
Because,
See how the wall came down
See how it tumbled
See how the wall came down
See how it crumbled
See how the wall came down
See how it tumbled
Madmen came and madmen went,
Down to dust, their fury spent,
Did they think that God was dead,
In thier poor misguided heads?
Heed the lessons that we learned,
So when you rule, the world won't burn and burn.
See how the wall came down
See how it tumbled
See how the wall came down
See how it crumbled

MOONLIGHT LADY

"Strange Universe"

Moonlight Lady - mysterious lady
in your diamond studded gown that glittered star bright
let me bathe once more in your silvery beauty
let me hear again your cool laugh, so gay, so light
Well your eyes had touched so gently
on my foolish open heart
and then your lips smiled with loving patience
and golden fantasies tore my reality apart
and did we make love, wonderful love
or was I losin' my mind
cause I woke up and you had slipped away
to another world, another time, yeah, hey, heyyyy
Moonlight Lady - my beautiful lady
you were a flower bloomin' in the night
but now the wind in the meadow, sobs like a widow
and a moon ancient as sorrow is casting,
casting a fading light, yeah
I said a lonely moon as old as sorrow
is casting a fading light

LAND OF A 1000 NIGHTS

ah, well hey! what I'm sayin',
is you better be right when you speak of my plight
or I'll be comin' to take you back down with me
to the Land of a 1000 Nights!
Well if I'm just insane
then treat me lightly and don't complain
well if I seem uptight
and it seems that my soul is black as night
but if you're wrong, you better be strong, yeah,
cause I'll be comin' after you to take you back down
to the Land of a 1000 Nights
Cold, so cold I can't pretend - the man in the outfield
with the bonnet head - crystal clear auntie viola -
wet blacknose saint bernard dog - and there is alpha -
omega - clearly put water on his tarnished tongue -
crying moons - can you dig the sheep goddess -
she's feeling red feather's from a salvation army cup -
and did you think I wasn't going to blacken his room -
for surely A Thousand Nights couldn't help but be
draining his soul away - say then, 
Sholyo Im Fi Zhamy - Sholyo Im Fi Zhay...

CHILD OF THE NOVELTY

"Child of the Novelty"

From a land where Dragons stood
A young boy dared what no man could
Born of fire, and ice and wood, he came here full of life
Well he loved and laughed and floated past
the echoes of a velvet mind, that whispered fairy tales untold
that kissed his mind, carressed his soul
Well times they changed and things rearranged
and a young man stood alone
But he decided to keep those echoes goin'
and ascended the mighty throne
He was a child of a novelty and he took 'em by surprise
he made them feel that he was real
he worked magic, magic..magic, before their eyes
As time went on, they said he'd done 
what no man had done before
But he claimed that he was a child of a novelty
and nothin' more
Well, he tried to cry out how he felt
and they answered "It's a lie!"
But by this time this novel child had squeezed his soul bone dry
He was a child of a novelty and he took them by surprise
he made them feel that he was real
He worked magic, magic..magic
ah, he worked magic, magic..magic
ah, sweet magic, magic...magic before their eyes

beyond my lonely seas
Gently morning shines
it's rays of emotional decree
as my Gods voice speaks to me
of how it all must be
Silver beauty, shine on endlessly
mysterious knowledge, eternally
your music on a wave of light
inspires visions, of a silvery night
where trumpets sound your vast expanse
where I have walked in a dreamlike trance
Brainchild of God, you peacefully lie 
and await the glory of the Kingdom of the Most High,
Forever may you sleep... peacefully...

WOMAN

"Tales of the Unexpected"

Stuck in New York City, 
Not a penny to my name
I Blew it all down in Texas, 
On Women and Cocaine
I've been riding an endless highway
A highway long and cold
The only shoulder for me to cry on
Was the woman on the side of the road
Woman she can be so cold
Tearin up my soul
She makes a man grow old
But I love her just the same
Had me a dark eyed lover, 
She had a dark eyed lovers name
And I gave her all my loving, 
But she didnt love me the same
The one bad thing about her
She played a game from the start
She couldnt give a damn
and all around, she just kept breakin my heart
Woman she can be so mean
Sooooo Mean
Tearin' all of my dreams
But I love her just the same
Well I guess I'll keep on wandrin
All around 'till I see
If the women I find are Women enough
For the woman and the man in me
And I know if I keep lookin
Gonna get what I need
As a matter of fact I'm checking one out
And right now she is checkin on me
Woman she can be so cold
Tearing up my soul
Makes a man grow old
But I love her just the same.

 THE POWER OF ROCK AND ROLL

"The Power of Rock and Roll"

My body's on fire, I'm standin' in the lights
I'm playin' my guitar, I know it's gonna be alright
The crowd's really stompin', and the house is breakin' down
A mile down the road they know that something's goin down tonight
And when they come around and wanna know the story,
Just tell 'em that they're witnessing the power of rock and roll
The place is gettin' hotter and the music's gettin' louder,
The passion of the people's got security against the wall
And as I see 'em chant and jump you know I love 'em all so much,
I wanna give a backstage pass out to them all!
Well this kind of revolution's what I know is the solution
I want them all to know they're the power of rock and roll
Well this kind of revolution's what I know is the solution
I want them all to know they're the power of rock and roll

GO STRANGE

"The Power of Rock and Roll"

I knew a man named Jack with a handful of suckers
With a heart full of talent
And a willingness to get up and go
Made a lotta jive talk to "em
He was really out to screw "em
But he couldn't when they all got popped
With a mountain of blow
Well it's been said, that in the end
The best laid plans go strange, go strange
Poor little Suzy was a credit to the movie
Was a taker and a faker,
When she made it in a wink of an eye
She found a rich old man
And she figured out a plan
How to take him to the cleaners
But she couldn't because he finally died
Well it's been said, that in the end
The best laid plans go strange, go strange
Well in the end, as I have said
The best laid plans, go strange, go strange

MIDNIGHT HIGHWAY

"Juggernaut"

Lookin' outside, see a slitherin' coiled snake
Listenin' now to the wheels and the sound they make
I'm streaking through the midnight highway rain
And I'm leavin' a town and 
I'm speedin' on to another one again
         
In the dead of night I slip from town to town
Not a soul in sight, only the midnight sounds
The miles and miles and miles of dotted lines
Will keep leadin' me down to a town, 
and then I'll be leavin' once again
         
We're on a - Midnite highway, 
winding through the midnight rain
Midnite highway, take me to my destiny
         
Speedin' along in a Silver Eagle bus
Well the road is long, it's the road we chose for us
We can't imagine life worth living staying home
We're a rock'n'roll band and we can't be stickin' around, 
we gotta roam
         
We're on a - Midnite highway, 
winding through the midnight rain
Midnite highway, take me to my destiny
         
Take me to another old lonely town, 
oh mama, sweet mama
Wake me with a sweet and gentle sound
New York, Chicago, Kansas City to L.A.
We keep goin' around and around, 
we're gonna be leaving once again
         
We're on a - Midnite highway, 
winding through the midnight rain
Midnite highway, take me to my destiny

JUGGERNAUT "Juggernaut"
Evolution, revolution are the parents of one another
Moving ever moving crushing everything that gets in its way
Smiles telling lies about the future; I don't want to believe them
Pity on their faces baby; don't you think they laugh in your face
         
Wheels of justice; they have fallen off
Man's on crutches being kicked like dogs
         
Politicians makin' money; all the time they murder our freedom
Filling up their pockets while the people in the street lay and die
Man you're workin' hard as hell; you only end up payin' more taxes
Give 'em all your money baby; don't you think they give you a bomb
         
Lambs were slaughtered for the sacrifice
Man's now offered up by his own kind
         
It's a juggernaut
It's a juggernaut
It's a juggernaut
         
Cry for your soul
Young and old
Help your own
They will need it, heed it
Don't be caught between the stones
         
Economic pressure and recession in a nation of madness
Living under fear of countries launching up a nuclear attack
Men are killing men with paper bullets; 
you may wonder how that's done
Money is the bullet and the dirty greedy heart is the gun
         
It's a juggernaut
It's a juggernaut
It's a juggernaut
         
Rise or fall
One and all
Sink or swim
We can win now; oh how we can do it if we try
         
Superpowers playing chess along a board with people as pieces
Taking human life just like they're only sacrificing a pawn
Don't you know the game is rigged; 
the best that they will do is a stalemate
Who will be the judge of what is right when we are lying in graves
         
We'll inherit from all of our nations
Not peace
Only
Deadly radiation
         
It's a juggernaut
It's a juggernaut
It's a juggernaut
It's a juggernaut
It's a juggernaut
It's a juggernaut
It's a juggernaut

AIN'T DEAD YET "The Power of Rock and Roll"
All around we hear the sound
the voices in our ears,
They try to bring our whole world down
playin' on our fears
Designing rules, deciding who,
they're gonna give the chance to
And all the while, the phony smile,
they just want to romance you
         
Well it's time we see
We're gonna be free
Well did you hear what they said?
They're tellin' us rock is dead!
We ain't dead yet!
         
The jury's out, the fix is in
the verdict's gonna burn
They worked it out to save their skin
they think that they won't squirm
We got to live, we got to move
go tell it to the masses
The burden is on us to prove
they're rippin' off our chances!
         
It's time that we fight now
The timing is right now
Well did you hear what they said?
They're tellin' us rock is dead
Well we ain't dead yet!
         
I said we ain't dead yet!
         
We won't go down without a sound, you bet now
Cause when it all dies down
they will have found
We ain't dead yet. no how!
         
We'll extricate our souls from them
The hounds of hell so foul
And shall return triumphant, then,
to hear their bloody howl
Armed with souls of righteousness
So razor sharp and narrow
We'll sink the blades into their flesh
Into their very marrow!
         
It's them who will see,
we're gonna be free
Well did you hear what they said?
They're tellin' us rock is dead!
Well, we ain't dead yet!
         
We won't go down without a sound, you bet now
Cause when it all dies down,
they will have found
We ain't dead yet, no how!
