Go for the Throat Lyrics

(9)
Submitted by level Wait
1. Marsielles de Sade [Instrumental] (2:28)
2. Battle Cry (3:02)
Gallantly we ride
our swords held to the sky
stained with blood for all to see
iron clad, we charge
our minds stark raving mad
on we ride towards victory
screaming with pride
our Battle Cry

This endless game
we fear not misery nor pain
and should we die
be it not in pain
screaming with pride
our Battle Cry

(Chorus) Side by side
swords held high
screaming with pride
our Battle Cry

Chorus

Thousands died
and surely more will have to try
screaming out their
Battle Cry
3. Burn It Down (3:16)
When it hits you so hard
it knocks you down to your knees.
You know it's gonna be hard,
because you're so hard to please.

You'll never make it to your feet
stop you cold when we turn up
the heat, burn it down to the ground
tonight.

Burn it down
Burn it down
Got us bursting in flames
with your passion for fire,
rushing into the blaze,
a suicidal desire.
4. On A Wing And A Prayer (4:32)
All through life
you take chances all the time
situation, do or die
all frustration, no reply
till you die
life never treats you kind
it's problems, fill your mind

(Chorus) Life isn't fair
when you're going nowhere
on a wing and a prayer
life isn't fair
when you're going nowhere
on a wing and a prayer
no one said it would be fair

It's our fate
life's full of give and hate
no place for a mistake
no chance for those who beg

But you're going nowhere
on a wing and a prayer
5. Chosen Ones (5:13)
From simple dreams
of a common man.
A very long time ago.
They stood before me
and preached away.
These things I had to know.

Time will tell us of the Chose One
reigning down from above.
Bringing wisdom of a forgotten race.
We're the ones they've called upon.

We hide the pain
show no sorrow
never waiting fot tomorrow
we shall answer
when called upon
we're the Chosen Ones
6. Caged Tiger (3:37)
The hunt is on, the traps are set
they've come to take me back again
dressed to kill, you know they will
if I should slip by chance
A jungles song to push me on
anticipation higher
the chains they bring
to tame the beast in me
just fuels the fire

(Chorus) Fools in the lair
danger fills the air
there's no escape, one mistake
you can't tame
caged tiger

As daylight falls, the hunt goes on
it seems the hounds have found the scent
a deadly still, in for the kill
won't get a second chance
nature's law, a razor claw
shines in my finest hour
the chains they bring
to tame the beast in me
just fuels the fire

Blood on the tracks
cold sweat on your back
maybe this time, lesson
learned by one
so blind.
7. Never Say Why (3:30)
Head first
desperation run
chasing sights unseen
turn your back and it's gone
victims always been
beware the chosen way
blind follow the blind
make for easy prey

(Chorus) And the thieves they
never say why
and the thieves they
never say why (why)
and the thieves, (never)

Black hearts, who hide behind the dark
afraid to face the light
thier shadows rule the day
but they lose the streets at night
no end to robbery
from inside the ivory tower
and the weak become the strong
and the weilders of power
can never say why
8. Go For The Throat (3:09)
Nothing ever comes easy
at times it's hard as hell.
They're only out to deceive me.
Maybe it's just as well.

(Chorus)
You gotta go for the throat
go for the throat
when you're pinned to the ground
tied up and bound

The will to fight is instinctive
they've got me wrenching in pain
I've tought myself to resist it,
never struggle in vain

Go for the throat

(Bridge)
You fight from the heart
it's strength serves you well
if you plan to live
be prepared to kill

Chorus
9. Can't Fight The Evil (4:34)
They come upon us
through the gates of hell
we've seen it coming
we're in thier spell
future's uncertain
it's filled with lies
one thing's for certain
you know we must be blind

So now you tell us,
the end is near
and now we live our lives
filled with fear
don't try to calm us
just stay away
we don't need your sacred ties
we're not your prey

(Chorus)
Can't fight the evil
it can't be denied
can't fight the evil
it's in his lies
can't fight the evil
can't be denied
can't fight the evil
there's evil in his eyes
10. Run But Don't Hide (4:57)
Look over your shoulder,
watch out from behind.
Stay away from the window,
don't go outside.
We'll soon surround you,
and creep inside your mind.
So listen up boy,
if you wanna to stay alive.

(Chorus)
You can run but don't hide
we're always behind
you can run but don't hide
we're always........behind

You talked too much
and it's useless to run
you talked too much
the damage is done
words going 'round
you're on the list
words going down
there's gonna be a hit.
Look over your shoulder,
watch out from behind.
Stay away from the window,
do go outside.
