Steel and Starlight Lyrics

(10)
Submitted by level Wait
1. Go Down Fighting (4:48)
Riding on a witch's wheel
a guiding light a force of steel
We've only come to wish you well
and save you from this living hell
Prophets tell of unseen truths
but in the end you're being used
Reigning merchants must defend
the world is ours so in the end

(Chorus)
Go down fighting
Go down fighting

Thousands strong and more will come
one for all and all for one
In the night the battle cry
guiding light still shining bright
No one left to save you now
join the ranks or to us bow
Reigning merchants must defend
the world is ours so in the end

(Chorus)
Go down fighting
There's no denying
Go down fighting
Fight for your life

Riding on a witch's wheel
a guiding light a force of steel
We've only come to wish you well
and save you from this living hell
Prophets tell of unseen truths
but in the end you're being used
Reigning merchants must defend
metal warriors till the end

(Chorus)
Go down fighting
There's no denying
Go down fighting
Fight for your life

Fighting
Fighting
Fighting
Fighting
Fighting
Fighting
Fighting
Go down
2. Steel and Starlight (3:43)
Head first into twilight
and the boys come out to play
Looking for some action
you can't turn the other way

The enemy's among us
twisting truths to evil lies
Fills you up with false predictions
then cuts you down to size

(Chorus)
But keep the fire burning
You're the steel that never fades away
and be forever after standing bright
We're Steel and Starlight
come feel the night
Steel and Starlight
we'll touch the sky

There's trouble in the backstreets
well it's coming down on you
Just another stranger
with a different point of view

(Chorus)
But keep the fire burning
You're the steel that never fades away
and be forever after standing bright
We're Steel and Starlight

(Chorus)
But keep the fire burning
You're the steel that never fades away
and be forever after standing bright
but keep the fire burning
You're the steel that never fades away
and be forever after standing bright
We're Steel and Starlight
come feel the night
Steel and Starlight
we'll touch the sky

There's trouble in the backstreets
and it's coming
3. Tokyo Rose (4:39)
One voice from across the ocean
what I hear is its always make-believe
She's calling out from all directions
her loving voice is all I ever need
And her voice is a strong reminder
the radio keeps calling out to me

(Chorus)
In the heart of a broken soldier
the radio calls to me
In the heart of this lonely soul
it goes on and on
On and on
On and on
The voice of Tokyo Rose
Tokyo Rose
keep calling Tokyo

I hear the war is all but over
her fading voice is all but history
She may be gone but not forgotten
that lady's voice has left a memory

(Chorus)
In the heart of a broken soldier
the radio calls to me
In the heart of this lonely soul
it goes on and on
On and on
On and on
Keeo calling Tokyo Rose
The voice of Tokyo Rose
keep calling Tokyo

(Chorus)
In the heart of a broken soldier
the radio calls to me
In the heart of this lonely soul
it goes on and on
On and on
On and on
Tokyo Rose
The voice of Tokyo Rose
Tokyo Rose
Tokyo Rose
The voice of Tokyo Rose
Hey Tokyo
4. Rocked Outta Love (2:55)
You've been wasted
You've been tasted
You've been rocked down to your knees
You keep tellin' the same old stories
it's all the same guarantees
You're needin' a piece of the action baby
it's plain for all to see
And as a matter of fact now lady
you ain't nothin' to me

(Chorus)
Once you feel the hunger
Once you feel the roll
You can't handle the thunder
You're outta control
You've been rocked !
Rocked outta love
Rocked outta love (Rocked !)
Rocked outta love

You've been walked on
You've been rocked on
You've been made into a scene
And there ain't nothing you've never had
that you can't get on the street
About time you're hitting the streets now
ain't it
it's time you're leaving the show
It's never who you've been seen with lady
It's more like who you know

(Chorus)
Once you feel the hunger
Once you feel the roll
You can't handle the thunder
You're outta control
You've been rocked !

(Chorus)
Once you feel the hunger
Once you feel the roll
You can't handle the thunder
You're outta control
You've been rocked !
Rocked outta love
Rocked outta love (Rocked !)
Rocked outta love
You've been rocked !
Rocked outta love
Rocked outta love (Rocked !)
Rocked outta love
Rocked !
5. Castle Walls (5:49)
(Chorus)
Locked inside
Locked away
Behind these walls
I live from day to day
Locked inside
Locked behind
These Castle Walls

Do you hear them coming ?
They're not far from here
Voices in the distance
gaining on my fear
I can't seem to reason
why I'm even here
In this time forgotten
no one seems to care
No use counting years
cause time has locked them all
inside of here

(Repeat Chorus)

Will you heed the warnings ?
Do you even care ?
Time has not forgotten
lives it's had to share
No use counting tears
cause time has locked them all
inside of here

(Repeat Chorus)
6. On Your Feet (3:59)
Stand up
Be counted
When your backs are to the walls
Rise up
United
Let the masses hear the calls

(Chorus)
The fires are raging
it's all for the taking
Don't wait till the damage is done
Fight for a reason
The air's full of treason
Don't wait for the hammer
Don't wait for the hammer to fall
On your feet
On your feet
The cities of light are on fire tonight
On your feet
On your feet
Cities of treason

Rise up
To fight back
Don't ever let them see you fall
Reach out
To strike back
Gotta pin thier asses to the wall

(Chorus)
The fires are raging
it's all for the taking
Don't wait till the damage is done
Fight for a reason
The air's full of treason
Don't wait for the hammer
Don't wait for the hammer to fall
On your feet
On your feet
The cities of treason will fall for
one reason
On your feet
On your feet
The cities of light are on fire tonight

Watch 'em burn

Stand up
Be counted
When your backs are to the walls
Rise up
And strike back
Gotta pin thier asses to the wall

(Chorus)
The fires are raging
it's all for the taking
Don't wait till the damage is done
Fight for a reason
The air's full of treason
Don't wait for the hammer
Don't wait for the hammer to fall
On your feet
On your feet
The cities of light are on fire tonight
On your feet
On your feet

The cities of treason will fall for
one reason
On your feet
On your feet
The cities of light are on fire tonight
Fight for a reason
The air's full of treason
Don't wait for the hammer to fall
On your feet
On your feet
On your feet
7. Fallin' for You (4:31)
Desire
That's holding on forever
It's a feelin' that takes you to your knees

(Chorus)
And it's waitin' for you
It's takin' me apart
Starts a fire
that burns inside my heart
And I'm longing for you
Save your love for me
Now I'm fallin' for you
It's your love
Your love
Your love that I need
It's your love that I need

I'm a liar
If you think I'd live without you
As this passion keeps calling out to me

(Chorus)
And I'm longing for you
Save your love for me
Now I'm fallin' for you
It's your love
Your love that I need
It's your love that I need

(Fallin' For You)
(Fallin' For You)

Desire

That's holding on forever
(Fallin' For You)
It's a feelin' that takes you to your knees
(Fallin' For You)

(Chorus)
And I'm longing for you
Save your love for me
Well I'm fallin' for you
It's your love
Your love
Your love that I need
Save your love for me
Well I'm fallin' for you
It's your love
Your love
Your love that I need
It's your love that I need
8. Exhibit A (3:50)
It's four in the morning
I wait for my case
Today is the day
gotta a date with the state
They're screamin' for blood
and they're sealin' my fate
Don't kiss me good-bye
cause it's never too late

The judge holds the floor
in this kangaroo court
But will he see justice is done

(Chorus)
Call to the judge and jury
In this my defense rules the day
Don't take a dark view you're confusing
the facts
I present: Exhibit A

I look to the future
to show me the past
A victim of justice
and I won't be the last
The laws all seem foolish
they're written in haste
The judgement is guilty
and I rest my case

(Chorus)
Call to the judge and jury
In this my defense rules the day
Don't take a dark view you're confusing
the facts
I present

It's four in the morning
I wait for my case
Today is the day
gotta a date with the state
They're screamin' for blood
and they're sealin' my fate
Don't kiss me good-bye
cause it's never too late

(Chorus)
Call to the judge and jury
In this my defense rules the day
Don't take a dark view you're confusing
the facts
I present: Exhibit A
Exhibit A
Exhibit A
9. Lost Queen (4:00)
As she waits out in the mist
In the heat of the night
For that one last fatal kiss
Comes the thrill of it all
With her patience wearing thin
And a yearning that never stops
Out to strike that final blow
Like a stake through the heart

In this everlasting light
All in a sailor's dream
Came up missing in the night
She was here but never seen

(Chorus)
Lady of the night
Will you come for me ?
And sail off into the night
A Lost Queen of the sea
Lady of the night
Will you come for me ?
And sail off into the night
A Lost Queen of the sea

In this everlasting light
All in a sailor's dream
Came a neverending sight
She was here but never seen
Once a mystery of time
She sailed upon the sea
Came up missing in the night
But now she's part of me

(Chorus)
Lady of the night
Will you come for me ?
And sail off in the lonely night
Lost ship of the sea

Lady Of The Night
Lady Of The Night
Lady Of The Night
Lady Of The Night
10. Hot on Your Heels (4:11)
(Hot, Hot, Hot)
(Hot, Hot, Hot)

You think you're number one
The only one
Much better than the rest
But I got news for you
It's time
We put you to the test

(Chorus)
Only time will tell
So in the end
Just hear me out
You can't pretend
Cause I'm hot
Hot On Your Heels
Cause I'm hot
Hot On Your Heels
Cause I'm hot (Hot, Hot, Hot)
Hot On Your Heels (Hot, Hot, Hot)
Cause I'm hot (Hot, Hot, Hot)
Hot On Your Heels

When it is said and done
You chose to run
Not stand and face this mess
But I got news for you
It's time we put you to the test
Like all the rest

(Repeat Chorus)

(Hot, Hot, Hot) Hot On Your Heels
(Hot, Hot, Hot) Hot On Your Heels
(Hot, Hot, Hot) Hot On Your Heels
(Hot, Hot, Hot) Hot On Your Heels
