Back In the Day Lyrics

7. Back In the Day (3:28)
Track rating :  71.7 / 100      Votes :  3     
Where were you when it happened? Where could you be found?
Were you at the front of the stage or in the underground?
From SF to Old Bridge, New York back to LA
The world of metal changed forever, back in the day

Well, that was back in the day and if you weren't there
It doesn't matter anyway, because you wouldn't understand

Live to die and die to play, every day and place
Leave a path of metal across the world from stage to stage

Well, that was back in the day and if you weren't there
It doesn't matter anyway, because you wouldn't understand

In denim and leather we were all part of one force
Knocked Rock and Roll on its ass and put Metal on course

Higher! Higher! Higher! Higher!

Back in the day... you weren't there...
It doesn't matter... because you wouldn't understand...

This our way of life, a life that was born free
To follow orders how to live was never meant to be
Oh, oh-oh, oh, oh-oh

Peals of thunder, sheets of lighting, te power hits the stage
The music was exciting, the mania raged
On, oh-oh, oh, oh-oh

We all had the fever, our ears started to ring
Feeding this wildfire, consuming everything
Oh, oh-oh, oh, oh-oh

Metal's King back then and still is to this day
Others imitate or challenge, but it never goes away
Oh, oh-oh, oh, oh-oh
