Clench your fist and punch the air
Don't tell me that I can't get through to you

With the power the weak will cower

I want to hear you all loud an clear
Don't tell me that I can't relate to you

To turn it up loud


JUGGERNAUT OF JUSTICE
(Lips, Reiner, Gyorffy)

My soul's a fire that you can't put out
An avalanche of power
Flowing like a river of endless smite
My hunger that will devour
Title wave of perpetual force
That will never die
Driving force with no remorse
The falling of the sky
Hurricane out of control
You know I'm coming your way
The aggression in my blood
Living for today

Chorus:
Juggernaut of justice
It's what we want to be
Juggernaut of justice
The truth will set you free

My desire is an endless void
Never to be filled
Eternal hunger that never dies
And never to be killed
Landslide of intensity
Never gonna stop
Loving power will devour
All the way to the top
Hurricane out of control
You know I'm coming your way
The aggression in my soul
Blow you all away

-Chorus-
Juggernaut of justice
Juggernaut of justice
Juggernaut of justice


WHEN HELL BREAKS LOOSE
(Lips, Reiner, Gyorffy)

Trapped aggression that needs explode
Fire all cannons ready for reload
Burning anger that's ready to ignite
Fists will fly and settle this tonight

Blistering vengeance, the hatred's alive
A grip on your throat, you'll never survive
Vicious emotion, begin to see red
Blood thirsty thoughts within your head

Chorus:
When Hell breaks loose
I'm ready to kill
When Hell breaks loose
You know I will
When Hell breaks loose
I'm ready to kill
When Hell breaks loose
You know I will

Anger burns the flame
Set to go insane
All are in a craze
Decimate and set it all ablaze

Tormented resentment, all you can find
Virtue and honour are in a decline
Brutal violence and boiling blood
Let it die drowning in the mud

-Chorus-

When Hell breaks loose
When Hell breaks loose
When Hell breaks loose

ON FIRE
(Lips, Reiner, Gyorffy)

The music flows so free
The songs inside of me
That never seem to fade
The many things I've seen
And everywhere I've been
And all the songs that I've played

The choices that I've made
That I would not betray
Then I would feel so lost
The voice that is within
That I could not begin
Without accepting the cost

Chorus:
On fire
On fire
I'm on fire
I'll never burn out
On fire
On fire
I'm on fire
Of this have no doubt

I know that I will never let go
I know that I will always grow

I love just what I do
Won't stop until I'm through
Never take me away
I give it all I got
You know I'll never stop
You know I'm here to stay

-Chorus-
On fire
On fire
I'll never burn out
On fire
On fire

Heading towards the exit door
Finding the power within your soul

Never going to give it up

Won't stop 'til I win the cup

I'm not afraid of what's gone

Chorus:

Not afraid of being had
Not afraid when things go bad
I'm not afraid what will be

Til' the end of the day
Straight from the heart
The way I will behave
I will be brave
Right from the start

CONSPIRACY
(Lips, Reiner, Gyorffy)

People talking, but they just don't know
Truth is hidden, lies begin to flow
Broken phone, the facts go wrong
Great deception don't take long

Take belief in what they say
Before you know it, it's all gone astray

Conpiracy
It's a conspiracy
You'll never know it's a conspiracy
Conpiracy

The suspicion grows
What they let us know

Illuminati's society
Agendas to ruin the economy
Financiers are going bankrupt
Those responsible are all corrupt

Conpiracy
It's a conspiracy
Conpiracy
It's a conspiracy

Conpiracy
Conpiracy


RUNNING
(Lips, Reiner, Gyorffy)

Getting off my ass
Getting on my feet
Gotta get going, I'm ready to compete
Keeping the pace
Gonna win the race
I'm running, I'm running, running for my life
I'm running, I'm running, running for my life

Off with a quickstart
Fast as I can go
Make it to the finish line is all I wanna know
Don't wanna be lame
Fonna win the game
I'm running, I'm running, running for my life
Living for the dream
Victory supreme
Winning is all that I like

-Verse 1-
I'm running, I'm running, running for my life
Running for my life

Living for the dream
Victory's supreme
Winning is all that I like


PARANORMAL
(Lips, Reiner, Gyorffy)

Shadow on my shoulder
Someone's watching me
Shadow on my shoulder
A lost entity
Subtle and silent
A whisper on the wind
Benevolent and quiet
Uneasiness sets in

Covert and controlling
Random acts of fate
Conscious yet consolling
Opportunity's the bait
Coincidence, cohesion
Right time and place
Spirit of believing
In that mindspace

Evidence can only be found within
Feel the presence under your skin
Shouldn't fear what you can't see
What will be is supposed to be
Let the spirit free

Shadow on your shoulder
Someone's watching you
Shadow on your shoulder
You can't believe it's true
Subtle and silent
A whisper on the wind
Benevolent and quiet
Uneasiness within

Paranormal, paranormal
Paranormal
Paranormal, paranormal
Paranormal

Evidence can only be found within
Feel the presence under your skin
Shouldn't fear what you can't see
What will be is supposed to be
Let the spirit free


SWING THING
(Lips, Reiner, Gyorffy)

THE STATION
(Lips, Reiner, Gyorffy)

Waiting at the station early in the day
Trying to catch a train to get me on my way
Walking around the station feeling alone
Just get me home

Chorus:
The station
The station

Empty faces all passing me by
The pain in my heart, my soul ?????
My thoughts that linger remain until I die
I said goodbye

I won't forget
I won't regret
All of the time we had
Now I'm all alone
On my way home
On my own

-Chorus-
The station

When the train comes and takes me away
Wishing and hoping won't make me stay
Another moment, just another day
I'm on my way

I won't forget
I won't regret
All of the time we had
Now I'm all alone
On my way home
On my own

-Chorus 2X-


TONIGHT IS COMING
(Lips, Reiner, Gyorffy)

Woke up this morning ready for the night
Rolled out of bed just to see the light
Gotta get going, gotta get on my way
To get to the night, gotta make it through the day
I long to see the setting of the sun
I just can't wait until this day is done

Chorus:
Tonight is coming
Tonight is coming
All day long
All day long
Tonight is coming
All day long
Tonight is coming
All day long
All day long

By midafternoon the sun is high in the sky
I'm just waiting for the light, the light to die
Time ???? so far away
Minutes seem like hours in a never ending day
Never ending day

-Verse 1-

-Chorus-
Tonight is coming
All day long
Tonight is coming
All day long
All day long


WHAT I WANT TO BE

Being me is what I want to do
I want to make my dreams all come true
Dedication's what I've been taught
Hold on to what you got
Razor's edge ????

Music from the soul and imagination
Take away all my frustration
The world's locked out and I got the key
I'm the maker of my destiny

-Chorus-

What I want to be

What I want to be

What I want to be

Hey!
Being me is what I want to do
I make my dreams all come true

HOPE IN HELL
(Lips, Reiner)

When damnation has begun
And there's nowhere to run
In yourself, do believe
What you put out will be about what you recieve

You think that you're the only one
Who's chances are slim to none
Living just to find the way
Right from the start, true to your heart you must stay
You must stay

Hope in Hell
Finding love and losing hate
Hope in Hell
Enjoy your life, it's not too late
It's not too late

Salvation is all you need

When damnation has begun
And chances are slim to none
Live your life and find a way
Straight from the heart, right from the start every day
Every way
What I convey
Every day

Hope in Hell
Finding love and losing hate
Hope in Hell
Enjoy your life, it's not too late
Hope in Hell
Finding love and losing hate
Hope in Hell
Don't stand in line, Hell can wait


EAT YOUR WORDS
(Lips, Reiner)

Eat, eat your words

Opinions are like assholes, everybody's got one
Got one
Consuming crow, don't speak before you know
Eat, eat your words
Shoot yourself in the foot when all is said and done
Said and done
Burning fire
Go retire
Eat, eat your words
Eat, eat your words

Prove you wrong
You must stay strong

Swallow the poison and put you to shame
Put you to shame
Devour crow, don't speak before you know
Eat, eat your words
When you fail you have yourself to blame
Self to blame
Blind choice
Silent voice
Eat, eat your words
Eat, eat your words

Prove you wrong
You must stay strong

Eat, eat your words
Eat, eat your words

Eat your words


THROUGH WITH YOU
(Lips, Reiner)

I trusted your intention
I believed in the things you say
I though you were my friend
And figured that you would stay
I gave you what I could
But I could never give enough
I felt your empty pain
When the going got so tough

Chorus:
See you next Tuesday
What I say to you
See you next Tuesday
I'm through with you
I'm through
I'm through
Through with you
I'm through
I'm through
Through with you

Insatiable hunger
For the things that could never be
Living in a dream world
And not reality

-Chorus-

I gave you my friendship
Of that you can't deny
Only a faint memory
Until the day I die
The end is a new beginning
Forward you must go
Only time will tell
Who is friend or who is foe

-Chorus-
I'm through
I'm through
Through with you
I'm through
I'm through


THE FIGHT IS NEVER WON
(Lips, Reiner)

Battles rage everyday
Never going to stop
Soon will come the final day
When the bomb will drop
Soon will come the judgement day
When the bomb will drop

Quest for revenge
The aged driving source
Justified in war
The taking by force
Creating all out war
And the killing course
Vulgar acts of violence
More people die in vain.
A cause of futility
The concept is insane
The loss of humanity
Who can we blame?

Chorus:
Send us all to kingdom come
Leave us all, nowhere to run
When the fight is never won
The fight is never won
The fight is never won

On top of the food chain
That is where we stay
Predetorily instinctive
We live to kill our prey
Mandatorily destructive
Killing is our way

-Chorus-

Will peace become an option
That people want to make?
Government involvement
Always on the take
Government corruption
Turns it all to fake
All for the gain of money
Taking what's not yours
The very truest evil
Is the waging of wars
The very truest evil
Is the waging of wars

-Chorus-
The fight is never won


PAY THE TOLL
(Lips, Reiner)

Like walking into darkness
Not knowing what you'll find
Paying the piper
And leave my debts behind

Backwards and forwards
It will always be the same
Payback foreclosure
Learn to play the game

Chorus:
Pay the toll
Pay the toll
For rock 'n roll
Pay the toll
Pay the toll

In order to receive
Give everything I've got
Grateful for the chance
And taking my best shot

-Chorus-
For rock 'n roll

Bring light into the darkness
Knowing what you'll find
Planning for a future
Leave your fears behind
Forwards and backwards
It will always be the same
Payment for the glory
Is how to play the game
How to play the game

-Chorus-
For rock 'n roll
-Chorus-
For rock 'n roll


FLYING
(Lips, Reiner)

Toronto to Chicago, down to New Orleans
Cross the Atlantic, wind up in Aberdeen
Spain to Australia, a daze is in the heat
Then back to Alaska, sled dogs race to compete

Chorus:
Taxi the tarmac, let's go
Leaving the ground, the engines groan
Into the blue sky we go
Flying
Flying 'round the world
Flying
Flying 'round the world

Brussels to Warsaw then down to Italy
Cross the Mediterranean, gone to Galilee

-Chorus-
Flying
Flying 'round the world
Flying
Flying 'round the world

London to Paris then to Taipei
Down throught The Philippines all in one day
Tel Aviv to Turkey then down through Greece
Back home to Canada to see our famous geese

Taxi the tarmac, let's go
Leaving the ground, the engines groan
Into the blue sky we go
Into the blue sky we go
Flying
Flying 'round the world
Flying
Flying 'round the world
Flying
Flying 'round the world
Flying
Flying 'round the world
Flying 'round the world
Flying 'round the world
Flying
Flying 'round the world
Flying


CALL OF DUTY
(Lips, Reiner)

Use your ammunition
To keep yourself alive
Onward to the battle
The struggle to survive
Never ending fight
And will to succeed
Never to surrender
And refusal to concede

Chorus:
Call of duty
Theatre of war
Call of duty
To live for more

Get set for confrontation
Take cover, kill or die
Receive your retribution
Another chance to live and try

-Chorus-
All is fair in love and war
Kill the enemy, even the score

Anger and vengeance
The fuel for the fire
Living throught the battle
And never to retire
Nobility and honour
To the final day
Patriotic endevour
For the cause you must stay

-Chorus 2X-


BADASS ROCK N ROLL
(Lips, Reiner)

Kick it out

TIME SHOWS NO MERCY
(Lips, Reiner)

Time passes on
Get it done before it's gone
The bucket list
Going after it, hand and fist

Fountain of youth
Can't stop age, you know it's the truth
Make it now
Before it's too late, fulfill the vow

Time shows no mercy
It's not what it seems
Time shows no mercy
Just live for your dreams

The hourglass
Grains of sand and time will pass
Young at heart
With the spirit that's off the chart

-Chorus-

Hold on to your youth
You're young as you feel and that's the truth
Fight the good fight
Do it long and do it right

Time shows no mercy
-Chorus-

Time shows no mercy
Time shows no mercy


MANKIND MACHINE
(Lips, Reiner)

Robotic world, electric device
Computer driven heart of ice
Pressing the button, throwing the switch
For better or worse but not knowing which
Mechanized men, a deadly threat
March to the future with no regret
Technical advancement, what we achieve
Give us a cause, something to believe

Chorus:
Under control
Consume your soul
Mankind machine
Mankind machine

Mother of invention, find what you need
Electronic age, the way to proceed
Remote control done from afar
Send a drone out, explore a star
Camera eyes focus and see
Imagination must be free

-Chorus-
Mankind machine
Mankind machine

Mankind machine
Mankind machine

Robotic world, electric device
Computer slave caught in a vice
Mechanized men, a deadly threat
March to the future with no regret
Electric planet with no end
What's left of humanity, on machine they depend

-Chorus-
Mankind machine
Mankind machine

FIRE AT WILL
(Lips, Reiner)

When you want the things you just can't have
And they seem just out of reach
You try and try but just can't have
It's something to beseech
Everyday is like the hunt
To find and eat a meal
Survival of the fittest
A trial by ordeal

Bridge:
Hunger deep inside
Never to subside
Lived or died
You must have tried

Chorus 1:
Fire at will
Take the blame and live the thrill

Like a dirty trick being played on you
Luck never comes your way
Roll the dice, it's a crap shoot
You'll be back the very next day
To win the prize you must realize
Being there, what it's about
Shed your fears, dry your tears
Leave yourself no doubt

-Bridge-

Chorus 2:
Fire at will
Just take aim and shoot to kill
Fire at will
Take the blame and live the thrill

Have a course of action
Making use of a plan
Contemplate the circumstance
Doing what you can
The hunt of desire
You must do it everyday
Hit and miss, living bliss
In the catching of your prey

-Bridge-

-Chorus 2 2X-
Live the thrill


DAGGARS AND RUM
(Lips, Reiner)

Pirate Chant:
Yo ho ho
Yo ho ho
Give us a bottle of rum
Yo ho ho
Yo ho ho
We be the scurvy scum

-fade in Pirate Chant 2X-

Upon the seven seas we are the dread
We shackle our foes and keelhauls 'em dead
Walk the plank, fall in the sea
Food for the sharks, your destiny
Band of brothers and all for one
Taking treasure by sword or gun
With an iron fist we are led
By the Captain's word or we be dead

Chorus:
Scurvy Scum
Daggers and rum
Daggers and rum
Daggers and rum
Daggers and rum
Daggers and rum

When the crow's nest man yells 'Ships Ahoy'
We load the cannon with balls to deploy
Slit their throat or run them through
Take what we want and kill their crew
Aboard their ship we take control
Throw their captain in the hold
Bury the treasure and getaway
Just another pirate's day

-Chorus-

Daggers and rum
(You'll walk the plank)
Daggers and rum
(To the sharks)
Daggers and rum
(evil pirate laugh)
Daggers and rum

Watch the horizon for ships to loot
Steal the gold, the pirate's fruit
Raise a drink and all be hearty
Rape, pillage an plunder, just a party
Outlaw varmints with nothing to lose
Making our lives the way we choose
Live by the sword or die in a fight
Jolly Roger you do what's right

Scurvy Scum
Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey!
Daggers and rum
Daggers and rum
Daggers and rum
Daggers and rum
Daggers and rum
Daggers and rum
Daggers and rum

UP DOWN SIDEWAYS
(Lips, Reiner)

Backwards and forwards and upside down
I'm the one who could say I've been around
Yes, I've been around
Use and abuse, built to last
Core of iron burning fast

Chorus:
Up down sideways
Up down sideways

Chaotic frenzy, a constant delight
Moth to a flame, shooting stars at night
Shooting stars at night
Adapt or die with no change
Variety is nice, can't be strange

-Chorus-

I will find a way
I live it every way
What can I say?

-Chorus-

Hands in the air, Ow! I've blown my fuse
Hold the temper, bound to lose
Bound to lose
Over the edge and back again
This in now and now's not then
Alright!

-Chorus 2X-


GUN CONTROL
(Lips, Reiner)

Protect The Constitution
Another twenty-one die
Is it the institution?
Are we to question why?
Is ownerwhip essential
For everyone to have?
But what is your credential?
Or have you just gone mad?
Wounds to bleed from
Do we need some?
Gun control
Gun control

Fear, anger and jealousy
Distortion of reality

Gun control
Gun control
Gun control
Gun control

Do you defend your family?
Or go and rob a bank?
Do you defend your country?
For that who do we thank?
Do we need some?
Gun control
Gun control

Fear, anger, misery
Distortion of reality

Gun control
Are you a vigilante?
Gun control
Another sniper on a hill?
Gun control
Become a celebrity
Gun control
Of another senseless kill
Gun control
Are you a big game hunter?
Gun control
Do you hear the call?
Gun control
Does it ever make you shudder?
Gun control
Is it the trophy on your wall?
Wounds to heal from
Do we need some?
Gun control
Gun control

Fear, anger, insanity
Distortion of reality

Gun control
Gun control
Gun control
Gun control
Gun control
When you've got the right
Gun control
A murderous plight
Gun control
When you've got the right
Gun control
There is no end in sight

Gun control


DIE FOR A LIE
(Lips, Reiner)

Sacrifice in the name of God
Ultimate price and the cause of fraud
So many died for their belief
All the murderous lies and grief
Controlling people with the fear of God
Cower before his staff and rod

Chorus 1:
Die for a lie
Living by the book
Die for a lie
It's all been mistook

Archaic world from which it came
All the dead and all the shame
The truth will rise for us to see
Conflicting lies buried where they should be

Chorus 2:
-Chorus 1-
Die for a lie
Living by the book
Die for a lie
Have another look

Archeology will one day show
The more we learn, the more we know
Where we come from and where we've been
What is our purpose and what does it mean?
Bow down and fall to your knees
Damned to hell, if you please

-Chorus 2-


RUNAWAY TRAIN
(Lips, Reiner)

Moving in the fast lane, down the rails we go
Nothing to stop you, for miles on end you flow
Building speed and power, on the razor's edge we shift
Only on one rail, reaction must be swift
It must be swift

Bridge:
Coming to a mountain hill, there is no turning back
When we hit the bottom curve we'll jump right off the track

Chorus:
Train
Runaway train
Train
Runaway train

The sound of squealing steel as we try to brake
Sparks and heat from the hotbox, how much will it take?
Will it take?

-Bridge-

Moving down the rail
Brakes begin to fail
There's no time to bail

Santa Fe Express, moving down the rail
Cargo load, we're moving, must get there without fail
Without fail

-Bridge-

-Chorus 2X-
Train
Runaway train


ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE
(Lips, Reiner)

Weapons of mass destruction may one day be employed
The human race is poisoned as chemical warfare's deployed
There's nowhere to run to and there is nowhere to hide
Dawning of the dead and the endless homicide

Chorus:
Zombie
Zombie
Zombie Apocalypse
Zombie
Zombie
Zombie
Zombie Apocalypse

Mindless mobs of mutants, the walking living dead
Migratory frenzy, the disease begins to spread

-Chorus-

Then civilization will fall
There'll be no justice for all
For all

Death and destruction becoming a routine
Only just a thought in reality obscene
Virus and bacteria, the biochemical host
Extinction of humanity, nothing but a ghost

-Chorus-
Zombie
Zombie
Zombie
Zombie
Zombie
Zombie


IT'S YOUR MOVE
(Lips, Reiner)

When you turn is up and you've made a choice
Waiting to hear your opponent's voice
It's the never ending game we play
How will you win or lose and pay?

Chorus:
It's your move
It's your move
It's your move
It's your move

Counting cards and loaded dice
The cheater's hand and the loser's vice
Ace of spades and the joker is wild
The odds against you are stacked and piled

-Chorus-

It's your move

Move a pawn and protect the king
To win the game, that's the thing
Game of cards, a game of chess
The need to win more than less

-Chorus 3X-

It's your move


AMBUSHED
(Lips, Reiner)

First time it happend I was five years old
They threw stones at me
Didn't listen to what I'd be told
I was too blind to see

I learned quick and I lost my trust
Enemy and friend
I have to do everything I must
For myself in the end

Bridge:
Beware
Unfair

Chorus 1:
Ambushed
Shot right in the back
Ambushed
Surprise attack

Life lessons come at great expense
Keep your eyes open wide
On the edge, living the suspense
Never lose your stride
Threat arises, stand your ground
Fight for your cause
Self belief is what you've found
You make your own laws

-Bridge-

Chorus 2:
Ambushed
Shot right in the back
Ambushed
Shot right in the back
Ambushed
Surprise attack

A coat of armour is what I wear
Locked without a key
In my mind I know what's fair
My eyes are open and I see
Threat arises I stand my ground
Fight for my cause
Self belief is what I've found
I make my own laws

Ambushed
Shot right in the back

-Bridge-

-Chorus-


FIRE ON THE HIGHWAY
(Lips, Reiner)

Driving down the road on an icy storming night (night, night)
Doing what we can to surive this horrid drive of fright (fright, fright)
Every curve and every hill, holding on in fear (fear, fear)
Doing what we can not to break or to oversteer (steer, steer)
Wheels spinning, nothing to grip
Endless swerving, an endless trip
Everywhere cars and trucks that slid off in a ditch (ditch, ditch)
Driving in the freezing rain and ice can surely be a bitch (bitch, bitch)

Chorus:
Gotta get right down to it
Get ourselves right on through it
Gotta get right down to it
Right down to it
Right down to it
Get ourselves back home
Fire!
Fire on the highway
Fire!
Flames burning bright

Driving down the road when we came upon a sight (sight, sight)
Glowing gold and flickering, a truck burning to the far right (far right, far right)
Wheels smoking, smoldering fire
Air that's chocking, down to the wire
Driving right past our stay and wait for hours into the night (night , night)
Speed on through, don't hesitate before the gas ignites (ignites, ignites)

-Chorus-
Fire!
Fire on the highway
Fills the dark with light

Driving down the road on an icy storming night (night, night)
Doing what we can to surive this horrid drive of fright (fright, fright)
Wheels spinning, nothing to grip
Endless swerving, an endless trip
Every curve and every hill, holding on in fear (fear, fear)
Doing what we can not to break or to oversteer (steer, steer)

-Chorus-
Fire!
Fire on the highway

Fire Chant:
Fire!
Fire!
Fire!
Fire!

Fire!
Fire on the highway
Fire!
Flames in the night
Fire!
Fire on the highway
Explodes like dynamite

-Fire Chant 4X-


RUN LIKE HELL
(Lips, Reiner)

Off to the race you run
As fast as a bullet from a gun
Beat the clock, you must try
As fast as you can, do or die

Bat outta hell you fly
To win the race, you must try
Competing to win against time
Be in condition and be in your prime

Chorus:
Run like hell
Got to get away
Run like hell
You just can't stay
Run like hell
You can't be late
Run like hell
Or seal your fate

On your feet
No retreat
With the flow
Away you go

-Verse 1-

-Chorus-
Run like hell
Run like hell
Run like hell
Run like hell


FORGIVE DON'T FORGET
(Lips, Reiner)

Chorus:
Forgive
Don't forget
Forgive
Don't forget

Dignity is earned
A lesson to be learned

-Chorus-

History that's past
The memories must last
The rattling of a cage
The morbid outrage

-Chorus-

Capacity to forgive
With our conscience we live

Forgive
Don't forget

Not to have died in vain
It can never happen again
With love we should embrace
To save the human race

-Chorus-

Time is said to heal
It's time to make that deal

Forgive
Don't forget

Forgiveness with provision
An end to all division
To bring a final end
And to remain a perfect friend

-Chorus-

-Chorus-


NEVER GOING TO STOP
(Lips, Reiner)

You can never stop it
People try to knock it
We all love to rock it
Playing our music loud
Fun to listen to it
Lots of people do it
Get right down to it
Makes you feel so proud
It makes you feel so proud

Fill my soul with rock n roll
You gotta know it's never gonna stop
Never gonna stop
You know it's never
Never gonna
Never gonna stop

Feel the music in you
Means a whole lot to you
Always take it with you
Until the day you die
Until the day you die

Fill my soul with rock n roll
You gotta know it's never gonna stop
Never gonna stop
It's never gonna
Never gonna
Never gonna stop

Gotta listen to it
Gotta know you love it
Dedication proves it
It feeds your very soul
It feeds your very soul
You can never stop it
People try to knock it
We all love to rock it
And that's called rock n roll
That's called rock n roll

Fill my soul with rock n roll
You gotta know it's never gonna stop
Never gonna stop
Fill my soul with rock n roll
You gotta know it's never gonna stop
Never gonna stop
It's never gonna
Never gonna
Never gonna stop
Never gonna stop
It's never gonna
Never gonna
Never gonna stop


YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT IT'S LIKE
(Lips, Reiner)

With the wind in my sail I began to wail by the time I was thirteen
Been around the world and back again, I know just what it all means
Know just what it means
Ten thousand hours and maybe more since the day I began
No regrets, not a single day, it was all part of the plan
Staying true to my cause from the deepest in my soul
Making my own rules because I'm focused on my goal
Never give up
And never give it up
Working everyday to do it
One step at a time
Loving every minute of it
To hate it would be a crime

Chorus:
You don't know what it's like
Making all your dreams come true
You don't know what it's like
All the hard work you must do

When you look inside yourself and you know where you belong
Fight the fear of failure and know you won't be wrong
Staying true to my cause from the deepest in my soul
Making my own rules becasue I'm focused on my goal
Working everyday to do it
One step at a time
Loving every minute of it
To hate it would be a crime

-Chorus 2X-

Working everyday to do it
One step at a time
Loving every minute of it
To hate it would be a crime
To make a life doing what you love is all you should need
Fill your thoughts with desire, it's the fuel to succeed

-Chorus 2X-
