Born in America Lyrics

(10)
Submitted by level Sathanas
1. Born In America (4:07)
Ball of fire in the sky the sound of solid steel
A flash of lightning sounds so frightening when the power's all you feel
From the leather of the fifties Murray the K and Alan Freed
Monroe and James Dean died for the silver screen Elvis made them bleed
Born in America oh yeah born in America oh oh
You wanna see a movie star oh Hollywood or D.C.
Politicians greed money's all you need the power's guaranteed
Vegas got the casinos and Texas oil wells
Got your Boston beans got your Frisco queens anything that sells
Born in America yeah born in America land of the free yeah
Come on rock the stages come on
Born in America oh yeah ah born in America whoa
Motor city motown chile dogs and baseball blue jeans and coca cola rock'n'roll
All born in America heh heh heh heh heh heh heh heh heh
2. You Burn In Me (3:40)
Passion and pleasure it's always the same playing with fire it's a dangerous game yeah
Dark like your eyes dark like the night it's deep within me a spell I can't hide
And you burn in me just like fire on the raging sea like a storm from inside like the thunder from up in the sky
There's no escaping that look in your eyes though I can see you through your own disguise yeah
My soul's in prison all locked up in chains no chance for release you burn in my veins
And you burn in me just like fire on the raging sea like a storm from inside like the thunder from up in the sky
And you burn in me just like fire on the raging sea like a storm from inside like the thunder from up in the sky
You burn in me oh oh you burn oh you burn in me you burn you burn ooh ooh ooh whoa you burn
3. Wings of Fire (4:39)
When the moon is black never turning back in the castle walls
The suit of armor shines through the ruins of time I can hear them call
Oh the ground it is burning the seasons are turning it's time that we planned the attack
The medival call it cries for us all now there is no turning back
We'll rise with the sun this task must be done driving them into the sea
The king he must fall or death to us all we must win this one victory
Wings of fire take me higher burning your way through the night
Wings of fire take me higher the battle is raging in flight we'll have victory on wings of fire
Oh the war it wages the battle it rages long into the night
The warrior's falling there's destiny calling his blood drains from his mortal life
The castle's on fire flames reaching higher burning a hole in the sky
And from it will fall freedom for all shouting for our victory call
Wings of fire take me higher burning your way through the night
Wings of fire take me higher the battle is raging in flight we'll have victory on wings of fire
Aah aah aah aah aah aah aah aah aah
Wings of fire take me higher burning your way through the night
Wings of fire take me higher the battle is raging in flight
Wings of fire take me higher burning your way through the night
Wings of fire take me higher the battle is raging in flight we'll have victory on wings of fire
4. Running From the Law (4:24)
Running from the law for something I did not do fearful of the lies fighting for the truth
I can't let them catch me my life it will be done so when evening comes I'll be on the run
Running through the hills got no place to hide racing with the wind I got you by my side
A fugitive chasing after destiny freedom never shines oh down on me yeah
Running from the law reaching for the sky never turn my back on shadows in the night running from the law
Their sights are set on me I must keep up the pace I feel them getting near I won't give up the chase
And when the morning comes if they're not at my door I'll keep myself alive running ever more
Running from the law reaching for the sky never turn my back on shadows in the night oh running from the law oh oh
Aaaah running from the law for something I did not do fearful of the lies fighting for the truth oh
A fugitive chasing after destiny freedom never shines down on me yeah
Running from the law reaching for the sky never turn my back on shadows in the night
Running from the law running from the law running from the law
5. Devil Woman (4:01)
Hmm mm mm mm I've had nothing but bad luck since the day I saw the cat at my door
So I came into you sweet lady answered in your mystical course
Crystal ball on the table showin' the future the past
Same chappel of evil eyes and I knew it was the spell she cast
She's just a devil woman with evil on her mind beware the devil woman she's gonna get you
She's just a devil woman with evil on her mind beware the devil woman she's gonna get you from behind
Give me the ring on your finger let me see the lines on your hand
I can see me a tall dark stranger giving you what you hadn't planned huh huh
I take the potion she offered me I found myself on the floor
Then I looked in those big green eyes and I wondered what I came there for oh
She's just a devil woman with evil on her mind beware the devil woman she's gonna get you
She's just a devil woman with evil on her mind
Beware the devil woman she's gonna get you from behind from behind from behind
I don't want you anymore and stay away
If your're out on a moonlit night be careful of the neighbourhood strays
Have a lady with long black hair try to win you with her feminine ways
Crystal ball on the table showin' the future the past
Same chappel of evil eyes you better get out of there fast
She's just a devil woman with evil on her mind beware the devil woman she's gonna get you
She's just a devil woman with evil on her mind beware the devil woman ooh ooh
She's just a devil woman you know she's gonna hide beware the devil woman from behind
She's just a devil woman beware the devil woman ooh she's the one
She's just a devil woman yeah beware the devil woman
She's just a devil woman she's gonna get you
6. Vigilante Killer (3:02)
Oh walking through the streets taking life in your hands the boy's on the corner's sixteen but a man
He may ask for money with a flick knife make a stand he doesn't even know he walked right into your hands
He knows he's doing wrong but he's sure he's doing right the punks would stop their killing if someone put up a fight
New York Central Park ain't no place to cruise at night he's looking for blood bet there's more spilled tonight
Vigilante killer he's a vengance morbid man vigilante killer but they don't understand
The tv says he's killing but they love him just the same the crime rates gone down and we don't even know your name
Get you outta town you hurt with all the pain we'll make your name immortal 'cause you made our streets the same
You were a victim of crime now a victim of the law guardian angels even joined for the cause
Get you outta town you hurt with all the pain we'll make your name immortal you made our streets the same
Vigilante killer he's a vengance morbid man vigilante killer but they don't understand
Vigilante killer he's a vengance morbid man vigilante killer but they don't understand
Walking through the streets taking life in your hands the boy's on the corner's sixteen but a man
He may ask for money with a flick knife make a stand he doesn't even know he walked right into your hands
He knows he's doing wrong but he's sure he's doing right the punks would stop their killing if someone put up a fight
New York Central Park ain't no place to cruise at night he's looking for blood bet there's more spilled tonight
Vigilante killer he's a vengance morbid man vigilante killer but they don't understand
Vigilante killer he's a vengance morbid man vigilante killer but they don't understand aah
7. Heavy Metal Machine (3:37)
Aah racing my motor the steel is hard the feel is fine
Moves just like a rocket but I will break the speed of time
Don't need no pit stop baby you know I'm running hot and I'm tough and I'm feeling mean
Heavy metal machine heavy metal machine ah aah
Cut through the wind a ball of fire on the loose
Ooh don't try and stop me I'm sweating steel and I'm spitting juice
Don't need no pit stop baby you know I'm running hot and I'm tough and I'm feeling mean
Heavy metal machine heavy metal machine got to keep it clean aah heavy metal machine oh yeah aaah
Heading for nowhere I could be heading straight for you
You can't escape me no matter what you do
Burn up the ground I'm gonna cut you down I move so fast I can't be seen
Heavy metal machine heavy metal machine got to keep it clean aah
Heavy metal machine aah yeah aah yeah come on huh huh
8. Where Soldiers Rule (3:45)
Leaves have fallen 'cross the path we once have slaved is it long before we catch the break of day
Out in the fields we carry on our broken journey straight path ahead all we ask is hope and glory
A voice it cries on through the night it never dies here poisoned rain cuts in through the crimson sky
Out in the fields we carry on the lonely distance straight path ahead all we ask is no resistance
Aah aah aah aah aah aah
Have we led ourselves astray have we lost the light of day
Can we hear our leaders call will we learn we're one and all is no man ever save
Where soldiers rule where soldiers rule
Through sand and rain full moon in sight there lies our stand on through the night
Out in the fields our leaders call straight paths ahead soldiers rule this all
Have we led ourselves astray have we lost the light of day
Can we hear our leaders call will we learn we're one and all is no man ever save
Where soldiers rule where soldiers rule
9. Gunfighter (4:27)
Well I've been riding all across this land I've been trying for so long now to track down this cold hearted man
I'm running short on time can't let him get to the border line I'm a ruthless man yes I am
Gunfighter hell's rider you better go for your gun gunfighter hell's rider you're gonna pay for what you've done
I remember it well I'm gonna send you straight to hell
It happened down by the Rio Grande when I was just a kid he burned through town like a raging fire I'll never forget what he did
And lying in the sand was my daddy with a six gun in his hand by the outlaw's gun he made his final stand
Gunfighter hell's rider you better go for your gun gunfighter hell's rider you're gonna pay for what you've done
I remember it well I'm gonna send you straight to hell gunfighter
Well I've been riding all across this land I've been trying for so long now to track down this cold hearted man
I'm running short on time can't let him get to the border line oh I'm a ruthless man yes I am
Gunfighter hell's rider you better go for your gun gunfighter hell's rider you're gonna pay for what you've done
Gunfighter hell's rider you better go for your gun gunfighter hell's rider you're gonna pay for what you've done
I remember it well I'm gonna send you straight to hell gunfighter
