One for All Lyrics

(12)
Submitted by level
1. Seven Shades (4:13)
Living in the past
It seems the future’s here so fast
It almost seems like yesterday
When I could see you follow
Wipeout in the ocean
Then the goddess blessed the ground you walked on
Trust in you has gone
I’ll build a dream machine so fast and clean
Play the game you’ll see what I mean

Crazy, lazy and there’s nothing I can do
But soon I will be kicking
Seven shades right outta you
You think I’m mental, incidental
And you say my time is through
But I’ll be kicking seven shades outta you

Black and blue and red all over
While you been living in clover
Acting kinda dumb living so high and mighty
Living in the dirt I tell you
My attitude could buy and sell you
Trust in you has gone
I’ll build a dream machine so fast and clean
Rip you into shreds
like nothing you have ever seen

Crazy, lazy and there’s nothing I can do
But soon I will be kicking
Seven shades right outta you
You think I’m mental, incidental
And you say my time is through
But I’ll be kicking seven shades outta you
2. Double Talk (3:29)
Nice to see you, I can’t stand you
But we got big plans for you and there’s more
We’re excited, more like bored stiff
I can’t wait till you’re ready
to walk out the door

Play the game it’s all the same
Buy you and sell you
You gotta play ball
I hear your words but I know what you say
So listen to me cos I know

Doubletalk – All I get from you
Double meaning but I can see
Double talk – take a walk
Or it’s double trouble from me

Super project I got no respect
A dime a dozen you’re our number one
On the guest list no way I’ll miss
Out come the knives
just as soon as you’re gone

Such a big shot thanks to daddy
Even rehab can’t unchain your brain
Such a charmed life just don’t cross me
Just keep your nose out
and you stay in your lane

Doubletalk – All I get from you
Double meaning but I can see
Double talk – take a walk
Or it’s double trouble from me
3. Roll with the Punches (5:21)
They’ll build you up to knock you down
They’ll do their best to try and run you out of town
Don’t you show it don’t mean nothing
You know that you can make it through

You think I’m crazy
But it’s you that’s gonna learn
You see me crash
But man it’s you that’s gonna burn

You gotta roll with the punches
You gotta get to what’s real
You gotta take what they’re giving
to get what you want
If you have to beg borrow or steal
You gotta roll with the punches
You’d better do what you can
You gotta roll with the punches
and pull yourself up
and fight just like a man

Just set your sights way upon high
Feet on the ground
while you’re reaching for the sky
Keep on pushing to the front line
You know that you can make it through

You think I’m crazy
but there’s something you don’t know
Give as good as I get
It don’t matter if you’re friend or foe

You gotta roll with the punches
You gotta get to what’s real
You gotta take what they’re giving
to get what you want
If you have to beg borrow or steal
You gotta roll with the punches
You’d better do what you can
You gotta roll with the punches
and pull yourself up
and fight just like a man

You think I’m crazy
But it’s you that’s gonna learn
You see me crash
But man it’s you that’s gonna burn

You gotta roll with the punches
You gotta get to what’s real
You gotta take what they’re giving
to get what you want
If you have to beg borrow or steal
You gotta roll with the punches
You’d better do what you can
You gotta roll with the punches
and pull yourself up
and fight just like a man
4. Get Your Motor Running (3:36)
Don’t need distractions I’ve had my fill
Give me the gasoline powered
Thrill of the kill
Smell of burning rubber burning up the track
Fighting for position
Adrenalin attack

No better feeling burning in your soul
Borderline insanity right out of control
Pushing to the limit of machine and man
Gonna give it everything –
Everything I can

Get that motor running
Foot down to the floor
Push it even harder
Til you can do no more
Just get me on that road
Screaming round the bend
Get that motor running again

Got pole position I’m on the ball
Ultimate velocity
You know I’m standing tall

Holding on for dear life
Up against the wall
Gonna take no prisoners
Hear my battle call

Get that motor running
Foot down to the floor
Push it even harder
Til you can do no more
Just get me on that road
Screaming round the bend
Get that motor running again
5. To Be Broken (4:52)
Take the book in your right hand
Won’t you swear on your life
The words you utter are vicious
Yeah they cut like a knife

False honour false glory
False witness twisted story
Blinded with both eyes open
You think the rules are yours
To be broken – to be broken

Innocent until proven
Yes you’re guilty as sin
Record as long as your arm
They don’t know where to begin

False honour false glory
False witness twisted story
Blinded with both eyes open
You think the rules are yours
To be broken – to be broken
6. Derailed (3:44)
Looking for trouble
When you knocked upon my door
I knew the ground rules
But I didn’t know the score

All seemed too good to be true
Too late I realized

You derailed my one track mind
Don’t think I wanna come and see you sometime
Derailed me just in time
You scared the hell outta me

Taking control
You had me revved up fit to break
I should have known
that you had much more than it takes

We made the play by play
Your bonus point got in the way

You derailed my one track mind
Don’t think I wanna come and see you sometime
Derailed me just in time

There’s no deceiving what you’re revealing
Made all the right moves
Made all the wrong turns
Turnd up the heat and
got my fingers burned

Taking control
You had me revved up fit to break
I should have known
that you had much more than it takes

I got myself up off the floor
I got the hell right out the door
I hit the street in seconds flat
There ain’t no way, no way
No turning back

You derailed my one track mind
Don’t think I wanna come and see you sometime
Derailed me just in time
You scared the hell outta me

You derailed my one track mind
Don’t think I wanna come and see you sometime
Derailed me just in time
You scared the hell outta me
7. Hunger Inside (4:47)
Lost in this nightmare
No way out of this charade
Just one direction
If we’re ever to be saved
Future is fading
Overwhelmed with emptiness

When you’re driven to the breakpoint
and there’s nowhere else to go
Keep your balance
and don’t look below
Just keep pushing past the limit
Leave the agony behind
The battles in your mind

It’s the hunger inside
inside of your eyes
Burns you alive
As you reach for the prize
It’s the fever deep within
Possessing your soul

Cast out in darkness
Sell your soul
Just to stay warm
Cry out for freedom just hold on
through the storm
Body is screaming
But the torture never stops

When you’re broken
Down and busted
And the whip is at your back
It takes everything you’ve got
To pick yourself up and get back
on the track
With inhuman concentration
Drag yourself up to the top
To survive you know
You cannot stop

It’s the hunger inside
inside of your eyes
Burns you alive
As you reach for the prize
It’s the fever deep within
Possessing your soul
Burns you alive
As you reach for your goal

It’s the hunger inside
inside of your eyes
Burns you alive
As you reach for the prize

It’s the hunger inside
that eats you alive
8. Top of the World (3:47)
Muscle in the backroom
Power on the street
Your tentacles lie everywhere
And no one beats the heat
Inherited the playground
Untouchable to all
You’re climbing oh so very high
But it’s a long long way to fall

Lord of your domain
Holder of the key
Think that you’re invisible
but it’s so plain to see

On top of the world
But you’ll never hear a sound
On top of the world
But you’re going down down down
You’re going down

Shakedown at the market
Skimming off the cream
Not an eye can testify
To what it’s never seen

Master of chaos
Answering to none
Think you’ve finally arrived
But soon you will be gone

On top of the world
But you’ll never hear a sound
On top of the world
But you’re going down down down

Master of chaos
Answering to none
Think you’ve finally arrived
But soon you will be gone

On top of the world
But you’ll never hear a sound
On top of the world
But you’re going down down down

On top of the world
But you’ll never hear a sound
On top of the world
But you’re going down down down
Down down down
Down down down
Down down down
9. In the Line of Fire (4:11)
Dogs of war I hear your call
Across the lines where heroes fall
There’ll be no end there’ll be no sign
Fighting ‘til the end of time
All I’ve ever wanted
I’d trade to stay alive
I know the clock is ticking
Just how long can I survive

In the line of fire
Got a ringside seat to judgement day
In the line of fire
Headlong into darkness
Headlong into hell

Dogs of war no guarantee
of life or death just misery
Fight for honour fight for law
Fighting to sustain the war

All I’ve ever wanted
Means nothing in this place
Cast away this madness
and disappear without a trace

In the line of fire
Got a ringside seat to judgement day
In the line of fire
Headlong into hell

Fight for honour fight for right
Fight to turn away the night
No retreat just reap the whirlwind
Dogs of war I hear your call
Across the lines where heroes fall
There’ll be no end there’ll be no sign
Fighting ‘til the end of time
All I’ve ever wanted
I’d trade to stay alive
I know the clock is ticking
Just how long can I survive

In the line of fire
Got a ringside seat to judgement day
In the line of fire
Headlong into hell
In the line of fire
Got a ringside seat to judgement day
In the line of fire
10. Kangaroo (3:04)
Think that you’re the chosen ones
Heavier than thou
said that you’ll re-write the book
But you’re illiterate so how
Don’t want to hear your attitude
Don’t need to hear your bitch

I wanna see who’s gonna follow
Here today and gone tomorrow

I don’t wanna I don’t wanna
I ain’t gonna be your kangaroo
I ain’t gonna I ain’t gonna
You ain’t gonna put me in your zoo
I don’t wanna I don’t wanna
I ain’t gonna be your kangaroo

Empty vessels make the greatest noise
And boy you’re deafening
Lowest common denominator
Take the money and see you later
Go jump on the bandwagon
You’re headed for a fall

I wanna see who’s gonna swallow
You ain’t gonna see me follow

I don’t wanna I don’t wanna
I ain’t gonna be your kangaroo
I ain’t gonna I ain’t gonna
You ain’t gonna put me in your zoo

I ain’t playing by your rules
Find yourself another fool
And when your ship goes down
No-one will recall a sound
And you’ll be running outta town

Cornholed and potholed
with nowhere to hide
When they’ll look back at you
They’ll just think your brains were fried
Jump upon the gravy train
before it leaves this town
Your 15 minutes almost up time
You were going down

I wanna see who’s gonna follow
Tattooed now and gone tomorrow

I don’t wanna I don’t wanna
I ain’t gonna be your kangaroo
I ain’t gonna I ain’t gonna
You ain’t gonna put me in your zoo
I don’t wanna I don’t wanna
I ain’t gonna be your kangaroo
I don’t wanna I don’t wanna
I ain’t gonna be your kangaroo
11. New Religion (4:38)
Take a moment, look around
Tell me what you see
No colour, black and white
Anger and misery

Standing on the edge of a nightmare
There’s no future there is just today

There’s a new religion
You’d better save yourself
A new religion
A new religion

You can slash and burn
But the worm will turn
Everything you want more
The wolf is at your door

Standing on the edge of disaster
There’s no future
There is just today

There’s a new religion
You’d better save yourself
A new religion
A new religion
A new religion
A new religion

Standing on the edge of a nightmare
There’s no future there is just today
On the inside getting nowhere
Timebomb it will explode

There’s a new religion
You’d better save yourself
A new religion
A new religion
A new religion
A new religion
12. Last Ride (4:35)
The gates are open and I’m on the street
Yeah I’m ready to fly
10 years burns you up inside
When it’s caused by someone else’s lie

Set the snare and bait the hook
The hunter lies in wait

It’s the lasting impression
that I see upon your face
Where’s the glowing reception
Aren’t you ready for the race

It’s the last ride
I’m gonna take you on the last ride

So much we got to talk about
It’s been so very long
You locked the door
and broke the key
Destroyed the man that once was me

I’ve got so much to show you
So very much to give

It’s the total deception
that put me into that place
Too late for redemption
Aren’t you ready for the race

It’s the last ride
I’m gonna take you for the last ride
Into your nightmare
Come on I’m gonna take you down

I’ve got so much to show you
So very much to give

It’s the lasting impression
that I see upon your face
Where’s the glowing reception
Aren’t you ready for the race

It’s the last ride
I’m gonna take you on the last ride
I’m gonna take you for the last ride
I’m gonna take you for the last ride
