Young and free, something you'll never be
A childhood's end, it's lunacy
Pure dictation, they don't listen
And you're just waiting for what you're missing

Welcome to your nightmare
you just can't walk away
It's time for you, to choose, your fate
You just can't let it lay
Welcome to your nightmare
Your whole life's on the way,
Today

You're no good, misunderstood, A.I.R.
All their hopes and visions, of what they want you to be
Crucial times, made up minds, A.I.R.
So high and mighty, though much too blind to see

Who are you gonna live your life for?
Conformity will trap you like a locked door
Independence means owning your decisions
Authority will put your soul in prison

Fight, or go insane, there's no one else to blame
Stop, their influence, you can't give them a chance
Break, right through the wall, that separates us all
Start, your second life, without their hands in sight

You got your pride, you got your visions
Don't subside, don't ever give in
Don't compromise just keep on grinning
The games they play you just keep on winning
Keep on winning
Keep on winning
Keep on winning
A.I.R.

(Anthrax)

There's two kinds, of people in the world
The outlaws, and the lawmen that prevail
The bounty hunter's job is on the
wrong side of the law
Intentions, of the truth and nothing more

Bridge

Burn'em, clear the streets as
he rides into the town
Cause the nameless one's
gonna have some fun
He's gonna bring an outlaw down
Wasted, it's over quick he's
nailed 'em three for three
Then he with his squint-eyed grin
and stubbled chin
He rides through history
The jury, in his mind the choices weigh
The trials, if you're gulity you're his prey
No judgement otherwise can change the lust
That's in his eyes
The sentence, will be carried out in stride

Repeat Bridge
Pre-Chorus

No name, like a shadow on a moonies night
Real game, He'll be there to uphold
Justice, law and order
And you'll pay, the highest fee

Chorus

When the gunslinger takes his piece

The money, it's the price you have to pay
When he calls, drop your eyes and look away
The man has taken life to balance scales
of wrong and right
Existence, each day a moral fight.

Repeat Bridge
Repeat Pre-Chorus

Lead - Dan

Double Pre-Chorus
Chorus


. . .



White coats to bind me, out of control
I live alone inside my mind
World of confusion, air filled with noise
Who says that my life's such a crime?

Trapped, in this nightmare
I wish I'd wake
As my whole life begins to shake
Four walls, surround me
An empty gaze
I can't find my way out of this maze

'Cause I don't care
Fall in, fall out
Gone without a doubt, help me
I can't take the blame
They don't feel the shame

It's a Madhouse
Or so they claim
It's a Madhouse
Oh, am I insane?

My fears behind me, what can I do
My dreams haunt my sleep at night
Oh no, won't learn their lesson, white fills my eyes
And only then they see the light


. . .


Fighting for existence, looking for a way
The race is getting harder, won't last another day
Try to make it happen, always on the go
Can't escape the hours, time will never know

Right now my new life has begun
I have to stand tall I can't run
They're trying to to take it away
I'm fighting the battle I...

Stand or fall, leave it to no one
Stand or fall, fight for my right
Stand or fall, they'll never break me
Stand or fall, Stand or fall

Looking deep inside myself to change
My world around
Never find an answer, but I still stand my ground
Never ending battle, my everlasting will
I'll come back when it's over, come back for the kill

Honor and loyalty so hard to find
People I've trusted they're all left behind
Truth is the virtue they no longer seek
Stand with the strongest or fall with the weak

. . .



(Anthrax)

Lead - Dan

The plans, of a race gone mad
A final solution to pass
All dreams are taken from their lives
No hope for the young all the old realize

Pre-Chorus

He is but a solitary man
Whose prejudice will spread like a flame
Throughout the land
He's enslaving those who will be free
Etching his own name in black
For all of us to hear and see

A yellow star for those accused
There's no escape once you've been pinned
A relocation only to confuse
And all their propaganda to hide the awful truth

Repeat Pre-Chorus
Chorus

Screams - In the night
Scars so deep that they won't mend
Screams - In the night
Screams - In the night
In their souls they can't pretend
Screams - In the night

Six million lives on the hands of heads of state
They followed orders from above
Then one man when all was lost
He took his life, he'll never pay the price

Repeat Pre-Chorus
Repeat Chorus

Bridge

They cannot hide or defend or disguise
For the truth is well known there'll be no alibis
Judgement will pass and their fates
won't be kind for the final solution was mass genocide

Repeat Chorus


. . .



(Anthrax)

Verse One

The day will come, you cannot run
White hot clouds fill the sky
See the red flare, blasting hot air
There's no place left to hide

Verse Two

Blinding our eyes as the sun turns to black
A world full of harted and fear
All are committed, there's no going back
There'll be no one left to hear

Shock, there's no relief
Shock, no will ever know why
Shock

Shock, panic won't cease
Shock, time to say our last good-bye
Shock

Chorus

Aftershock, humanity's loss
Aftershock, all is destroyed
Aftershock, have no remorse
Aftershock, into the void

Verse Three

Never again we cannot depend
On leaders who see things so blind
Time will not lend, and never amend
A lesson for all mankind

Repeat Pre-Chorus
Repeat Chorus

Lead - Dan

(Anthrax with Turbin & Lilker)

Trapped up inside here, like lions in a cage
I've been a mark of injustice
Bound by these chains
Can't find a reason, I'm on my own
My destiny waits for a sign from me
I'm leaving alone

Lead - Dan

I'm out on my way now
It's been so many years
The chase is my lifeblood
I have no more fears

Verose One

Fire, burns in my veins
Anger, shows on my face
Hatred, it poisons my soul
Look out, I'm about to explode

Pre-Chorus

Evil ones try to destroy us
We're armed and prepared for attack
We'll take on the world with the rebellion
We're dangerous down to the last

Chorus

Armed and dangerous
Armed and dangerous

Verse Two

Am I evil, or am I insane
The lion inside of me, is no longer tame
To blade in my left, a gun in my right
To beat you within, an inch of your life

Repeat Pre-Chorus
Repeat Chorus

Harmony Lead - Dan and Scott

(Anthrax & John Zazula)

Verse One

Endless curse, blood runs cold
Evil stare, will turn your flesh to stone
Land of doom, world of sin
All subside, don't venture near
The island where she lives
Oh, she'll suck you in

Bridge

Destroyer of life, Demon
Oh I'm ready to strike, Gorgon

Verse Two

Serpents bride, the end awaits
Human prey, no swords or armor
Shield you from your fate
Hey you, you can't escape
Wicked smile, full of lies
Head of snakes, approch her cave
But don't look in her eyes
Oh, her eyes

Repeat Bridge
Pre-Chorus

Sieze, appease, deceive, die
Sieze, appease, deceive, die

Chorus

Medusa, she's staring at you
Medusa, with her eyes
Medusa

Verse Three

Evil witch, cast her spell, seducing you
She'll take
Cannot move, no eyes to see, a statue now
For all eternity Medusa laughs at you
And you're her slave

Repeat Bridge
Repeat Pre-Chorus
Chorus

Medusa, she's staring at you
Medusa, with her eyes
Medusa, oh she's cold
Medusa

Lead - Dan

Repeat Verse One

(Anthrax)

Striking down the enemy
Fighting hand to hand
Troops are thrusting onwards
Time to take command
Ready to devour
On the attack
Bodies lie dismembered
Maimed, killed, and hacked

Draw fast, cut first
Live hard, die hard
Feel the point of the blade

Lunging like an animal, killing all in sight
Going for the throat, living for the fight
In a bath of bloodshed, mixing with the sweat
Crawling through the barbwire, put it to the test

Pre-Chorus

Fight, fight fight
Fight, fight fighting the war
Fight, fight fight
Fight, fight fight

Chorus

Gung-Ho, Gung-Ho, Gung-Ho
Gung-Ho, Gung-Ho, Gung-Ho

Raging on the warpath, storming
through the town
Blowing it to pieces, killing all around
Stand in our way, if you've got the balls
In a hail of bullets, your nailed to the wall

Repeat Pre-Chorus
Repeat Bridge

Lead - Dan

We wait out the day, we burn in the sun
We move in by night, and kill everyone
Show no emotions, have no regrets
Made to take pain, no fear of death

Repeat Pre-Chorus
Repeat Chorus
Lead - Scott

Draw fast, cut first
Live hard, die hard
Feel the point of the blade
