Walk Through Fire Lyrics

Submitted by level
1. Intro
(instrumental)
2. Against The Grain
Like a fish out of water
Just a man on the run
Under starter's orders
Long before you hear the gun

You think you're in with the in crowd (in with the in crowd)
but you're out in the cold
today you're giving the orders (giving the orders)
tomorrow you'll be bought & sold

Take a good had look tell me what you see
that's the difference between you & me
you've changed but I've stayed the same
you've compromised but I'm forever
against the grain
against the grain

Make the right impression
squeeze into the mould
twisted by ossession
believe all you're told

Just take it all for granted (all for granted)
but it's not what it seems
the power lust that you've planted (lust that you've planted)
will push you to the extreme

Take a good had look tell me what you see
that's the difference between you & me
you've changed but I've stayed the same
you've compromised but I'm forever
against the grain
against the grain

You think you're in with the in crowd (in with the in crowd)
but you're out in the cold
today you're giving the orders (giving the orders)
tomorrow you'll be bought & sold

Take a good had look tell me what you see
that's the difference between you & me
you've changed but I've stayed the same
you've compromised but I'm forever - against the grain
3. Breaking You Down
Tunnel vision never seeing
what lies behind
no decision necessary
they'll feed your mind

Why don't you open your eyes
cos there's too much to see
gotta cast away your chains
set yourself free

Breaking you down
turning you round
taking you way underground
breaking you down
turning you round
I'll turn it up until you can see it

Black & white is all you got no shades of grey
if you step over the edge
its gonna blow you away

Why don't you open your mind
cos there's no turning back
gotta cast away your chains
listen to me

Breaking you down
turning you round
taking you way underground
breaking you down
turning you round
pulling you under

Daili beloved
we are gathered here today
to celebrate the power
the glory the truth
of sheer volume

Breaking you down
turning you round
taking you way underground
breaking you down
turning you round
4. Under Your Radar
No explanation intimidation
you'll never know 'til I'm right up on you
I've got the element of surprise

I'm crushing under your radar
I'm getting close to my goal
I'm breaking through your defences
you know this time I'm taking control

You let your guard down
I'm in with no sound
you'll never guess what I'm going to do
looks like lady luck's run out on you

I'm crushing under your radar
I'm getting close to my goal
I'm breaking through your defences
this time I ain't gonna stop

Do you look in the mirrror
In the back of your mind
hiding round every corner
too late

Every time you stepped on someone
you'll feel it like it's A thousand ton
you've given freely & now it's time
to take what's coming - coming you

This information and my elation
going at you at maximum speed
sling your hook pal time to believe

I'm crushing under your radar
I'm getting close to my goal
I'm breaking through your defences
this time I ain't gonna stop
5. Walk Through Fire
The pressure builds and there's no escape
there's no illusion caught on the tape
you think you'll falling it aint over
light in the tunnel supernova

If you can't take the heat
if you can't keep the beat
there's only one way

Walk through fire and you're gonna burn
walk through fire past the point of no return
walk through fire
only way to take it to the edge & push as far as you can go

The starter's gun but you're in last place
each obstacle slams into your face
the odds are you'll never win this race

If you can't do the time
if you can't see the sign
there's only one way

Walk through fire and you're gonna burn
walk through fire past the point of no return
walk through fire
only way to take it to the edge & push as far as you can go

Over the edge into the flame
losing your mind but you will gain
you're soul will scream
you're brain will burn there's no escape there's no return

Walk through fire and you're gonna burn
walk through fire past the point of no return
walk through fire
walk through fire and you're gonna burn
walk through fire
6. Bulldozer
Made the overture no word of a lie
the only answer that I got was no reply
gonna take a page right out of your book
turn the tables on you & I'll put you on the hook

Hit me for six but I'm coming back around
like a bulldozer I'm gonna knock you down
no hesitation & you know theres aint no doubt
like a bulldozer I'm going to knock you out

The story given just doesn't ring true
the opportunity was given to you
responsability is flushed down the drain
its time you understand and the meaning of pain

Hit me for six but I'm coming back around
like a bulldozer I'm gonna knock you down
no hesitation & you know theres aint no doubt
like a bulldozer I'm going to knock you out

The story given just doesn't ring true
the opportunity was given to you
responsability is flushed down the drain
its time you understand and the meaning of pain

Hit me for six but I'm coming back around
like a bulldozer I'm gonna knock you down
no hesitation & you know theres aint no doubt
like a bulldozer I'm going to knock you out
7. Long Day's Journey
In the evening when its over
and the smoke is coming down
when you wake up will you realise
that your luck aint turning round
at the start line under the gun
but it does not feel the same
you hit bottom for the last time
and there's no-one else to blame

You never listen - that's why you never learn
you saw the straight line but still you made the turn
one day soon you're gonna realize

It's a long day's journey
back to the beginning - back to the start
long day's journey
back to the beginning - once again

See you building all your bridges
just to see them burn
taking twisted pleasure
showing no cocern
diving headlong into darkness
with no safety net below
will you wake up will you come back
when there's no where left to go

You never listen - that's why you never see
you saw the straight line & turned around to me
is this the day you're gonna realize

It's a long day's journey
back to the beginning - back to the start
long day's journey
back to the beginning - once again

It's a long day's journey
back to the beginning - back to the start
long day's journey
back to the beginning - back to the start
long day's journey
back to the beginning - once again

Back to the start once again
8. Trainwreck
Hey - she's on her way
keep the drink a'coming
just get out of her way
she's on a roll tonight
go go baby in another catfight
hey - she's got it all figured out
working all the angles
& there's ain't no doubt
hey - the camera never lies
wearing out your welcome
and you just can't deny

You think you got it down
& they'll come running round
but when its time to fly
they'll leave you high & dry
go - here we go - you're a trainwreck
coming waiting to happen
see - don't you see - you're a trainwreck
coming guaranted
go - here we go - cos you're heading
for trouble
trainwreck coming now

Running from tomorrow trying to
find a detour from today
they got you on the front page
twisting every word you say
hey - a movie star - no sign of talent
who'd you think you are
got one for the money two for the show
sink another drink
and watch her go go go

You think you got it down
running all over town
one step forward two steps back
24 carat heart attack

They turned their back on you
- now what you gonna do
the only sound you hear
- is screaming in your ears
9. Grip
Hear the rumors wolves
are at your heels
fragile fingers strangle
broken ideals
no illusion see the light of day
fading faster cannot get away
fingers pointing knives
are at your back

No surprise you know there
aint no wonder
if you let go your know
you're going under now
just get a grip on yourself
just get a grip
just get a grip on yourself
just get a grip
just get a grip on yourself

Ancient history rears
its ugly head
truth is twisted as
the lies are read
maakes no difference
what they're trying to said
I'm never giving them
the time of day
I got two fingers for you
get outta my way

No surprise you know
there aint no wonder
if you let go you know
you're going under now
just get a grip on yourself

Friend or foe just try to
hold the wire
you're the one who's gonna
take you higgher
if you let go you know
you're going under now

just get a grip on yourself
just get a grip
just get a grip on yourself
10. Running Around In Circles
I'm running just to stand still
can't seem to catch a break
winner on a losing streak
i'm giving but they always take

Time is getting tighter - will I stand oe will I fall

I'm running around in circles
bit I know just what to do
the hour is getting nearer
gotta make that leap of faith over to you

Tied up and feeling real tied down
falling out of range
busting outta this balloon
time to make a change

Run out of excuses gotta do this on my own

I'm running around in circles
but I know just what to do
the hour is getting nearer
gotta make that leap to you

I listened hard I under stood
but in the end it did no good
I realized I had to see
what was waiting there for me
11. Hard Road
I still remember I still recall
where I was when they started it all
from hall to hotel the cast would change
kept firing but were always out of range

Gonna take you by the hand
gonna make you understand

Its a long hard road you gotta travel
to get where you belong
it'a a long hard road but in the end
it can only make you strong
make you strong

The wind grew stronger the tide had turned
we crossed the ocean as the bridges burned
I still remember I still feel
we made a bargain but you broke the deal

But the battle rages on
even after you are gone

Its a long hard road you gotta travel
to get where you belong
it'a a long hard road but in the end
it can only make you strong
make you strong

Win or lose its ll the same
As long as you are still in the game
you may be down but theres no doubt
they can never really count you out

But the battle rages on
even after you are gone

Its a long hard road you gotta travel
to get where you belong
it'a a long hard road but in the end
it can only make you strong
its a long hard road
its a long hard road
its a long hard road you gotta travel
to get where you belong
12. Armageddon
You think I'm crazy
maybe it's true
but I know that
I got one up on you
I know what's coming
and you won't learn
until the time is right
and unholy fire fills the night

Nobody knows it's the end
no-one knows it's the beginning
nobody has to pretend
no-one can see that
it's all coming down
all coming down

You think I'm cracked up
but you will know
when it's too late to try
& stop the show
It's open season
you're gonna learn
and when the time is right
we'll be burned with
cauterizing light

Nobody knows it's the end
no-one knows it's the beginning
nobody has to pretend
no-one can see that
it's all coming down

All coming down

And when the time is right
and you never will
beleieve the sight

Nobody knows it's the end
no-one knows it's the beginning
nobody has to pretend
no-one can see that
it's all coming down
13. Attitude
Got nothing to give
nothing to take
everything I am I know
that you'd break
stare into my eyes
and hear what I say
looking for trouble
you found it today

Got my attitude in front of you
got my attitude right in your face
and there's nothing
you can try to do
got my attitude
and you can't hold me down
can't hold me down

I heard the tall tales
I've seen the show
said that they suck
just cos you blow
stood on my two feet
and held my head high
rose out the dirt
and reached for the sky

Got my attitude in front of you
got my attitude right in your face
and there's nothing
you can try to do
got my attitude
and you can't hold me down
can't hold me down

You got your reasons
you got your rhymes
changing them daily
I can't count the times
listen to me and
you'll know who I am
doing it my way because I can

Got my attitude in front of you
got my attitude right in your face
and there's nothing
you can try to do
got my attitude
and you can't hold me down
can't hold me down
can't hold me down
14. Necessary Evil
Take the one way ticket
strapped into your seat
gonna take you out of bounds
and knock you flying

You'll dedicate assimilate
and detonate

It's a necessary evil
- it's a beautiful disease
It's a twisted kind of logic
gonna take your spirit higher
while it drags you to your knees

Think you're going crazy
when it takes control
got a vice grip on your mind
and squeeze your soul

You'll dedicate assimilate
and celebrate this fury

Once you start the journey
you'll never reach the end
you'd best hold on with all you got
and come out swinging
15. Space Station #5 (Montrose cover)
Start with a Sun and move on out
The future's in the skies above.
The Heavens unfold and a new star is born.
Space and time makin' love.

Oh, what a time we had
Livin' underground.
I move to station number five
See you next time around.

As far as you want and close as you need
It's all in your mind you know.
This old Earth hasn't really seen it's day
It's here...time to go.

I remember when it was so clear
We were young but the memory still remains.
To pick fruit from a tree, fish from the seas
Now nothin's left here but the stains.
But I can't cry no more, can only be glad
That there's other places we can be.
If the time suites you right I'm leaving tonight
Come fly away with me!
