NEVER SURRENDER / FACE THE ENEMY CD/LP
DEFIANCE RECORDS XLII

Lyrics:

NEVER SURRENDER

1. THE SOUND THAT SETS ME FREE
IN AN IRON AGE, SO MERCILESS
FILLED WITH CONFUSION AND DISTRESS
TO YOU I TURN, TO YOU I TURN
YOU´RE MY ONLY MEANS OF SALVATION
MY ONLY HOPE FOR LIBERATION
WHEN WILL I LEARN, WHEN WILL I LEARN?
THE SOUND THAT SETS ME FREE
NO MORE PAIN
RECLAIM IDENTITY
I CALL YOUR NAME
BEEN LET DOWN SO MANY TIMES
BUT WHAT DID I EXPECT TO FIND?
IT ALL FADES, IT ALL FADES
FOR LIFETIMES I´VE TRIED TO IGNORE
THAT YOU´RE THE LOVE I´M LOOKING FOR
TO YOU I PRAY, TO YOU I PRAY
I CALL YOUR NAME
WITH ALL HUMILITY
PLEASE TAKE ME BACK
PLEASE HEAR MY PLEA
THE SOUND THAT SETS MY MIND FREE
THE LOVE THAT SETS MY HEART FREE

2. INDESTRUCTIBLE
I CAN´T BE KILLED, THOUGH TRY YOU WILL
TO TAKE MY LIFE
AND I STAND AND LAUGH AT ALL YOUR WRATH
AND THREATS WITH GUN OR KNIFE
I AM SOUL
I AM INDESTRUCTIBLE
I AM IMPERISHABLE
MY BLOOD MAY SPILL, MY BREATH MAY STILL
BUT I´LL FOREVER PERSEVERE
DESPITE ALL ATTACKS AND FIGHTING BACK
I SHALL KNOW NO FEAR
AND YOU CAN NEVER KILL ME
TO KNOW NO DEATH IS TO KNOW NO FEAR

3. ONE DAY
ONE DAY
I´LL BREAK THESE WALLS OF FLESH AND BONE
ONE DAY
ESCAPE THIS PRISON SELF-IMPOSED
YES ONE DAY I´LL BE FREE
TRANSCEND ALL BOUNDARIES
YES ONE DAY I´LL BE FREE
ONE DAY
I´LL OVERCOME CONDITIONED MINDS
ONE DAY
LEAVE THIS INSANITY BEHIND
THESE CHAINS
MY OWN DESIRES
BUT I´LL BE FREE
GROWN SO TIRED
FROM WORLD TO WORLD I´VE ROAMED
MUST SEARCH HIGHER
FOR THE PLACE THAT I CALL HOME
ONE DAY
I´LL JUST LET GO, JUST LET GO
ONE DAY
GIVE TO YOU MY HEART AND SOUL

4. BROKEN
YOU CHOKED ON YOUR OWN WORDS
TIL YOU HAD NOT A BREATH
AS I STOOD BY, STUNNED AND SILENT
AND WATCHED YOU DIE A THOUSAND DEATHS
BROKEN TIES IN BROKEN TIMES
FAITH TWISTED AS YOU FALL
THE SILENCE BETWEEN US DEAFENING
AND YET IT SAYS IT ALL
BROKEN, IT´S BROKEN
BROKEN, IT´S BROKEN RIGHT NOW
AFTER ALL THE WORDS WE SAID
AFTER ALL THAT WE STOOD FOR
I CAN´T BELIEVE THAT IT´S COME TO THIS
A FLAME THAT BURNS NO MORE
DO YOU EVER LOOK TO THE PAST
OR HAVE YOU FOUND WHAT YOU´RE LOOKING FOR?
THE COMMON ROAD´S FOR THE COMMON MAN
I THOUGHT YOU WANTED MORE
DOWN, I´M DOWN
DOWN, I´M LET DOWN RIGHT NOW

5. NEVER SURRENDER
NEVER SURRENDER, NEVER GIVE IN
NEVER LET THE ENEMY WIN
NEVER SAY DIE, NEVER SAY WHY
IT´S ALWAYS WORTH ANOTHER TRY
NEVER SURRENDER
NEVER GIVE IN TO THE THINGS THEY SAY
BETTER MOVE FAST BEFORE IT´S TOO LATE
LOSE THE RACE, LOSE THE FACE
BETTER KEEP COOL AND PLAY THE ACE
NEVER SURRENDER

FACE THE ENEMY

1. BROKEN DREAMS
NEVER WILL I FORGET, WHAT I SAW THAT DAY, OR THE LIFE THAT WAS LOST, WHEN IT ALL CAME CRASHING DOWN, THERE´S NO OTHER WAY,
WON´T TAKE THIS FOR GRANTED, MAKE THE MOST OF EVERY DAY, WE ARE STRONG AND FREE, WE WILL GO ON, PUSH THROUGH, LIVE OUR
LIVES FOR US, THERE´S NO OTHER WAY, WON´T TAKE THAT FOR GRANTED, MAKE THE MOST OF EVERY DAY, WE WILL NOT FORGET

2. NOT A CHANCE
YOU DON´T FUCKIN´ KNOW ME, YOU JUST KNOW MY NAME; TRIED TO TAKE ME OUT, BUT I BEAT YOU AT YOUR GAME, THOUGHT YOU´D BREAK
ME DOWN, TRY AND GAIN SOME FAME, YOU LOST THIS FUCKIN´ BATTLE AND ALL YOU FOUND WAS SHAME, WHY, WHY DO YOU DO IT, WHEN,
WHEN WILL IT END, BEEN THROUGH IT ALL BEFORE AND I´LL DO IT ALL AGAIN, IT´S THE PRICE YOU PAY,WHEN YOU GO AGAINST THE
TREND, YOU CAN SAVE YOUR BREATH, RETHINK THE MESSAGE THAT YOU SEND, FIND YOUR WAY OUT THE DOOR, BECAUSE I´LL BE HERE UNTIL
THE END, WHY, WHY DO YOU DO IT, WHEN, WHEN WILL IT END

3. THROUGH IT ALL
I ONCE STOOD IN YOUR SHOES, BUT NOW YOU´RE STANDING THERE INSTEAD, I CAN´T TELL YOU WHAT TO DO, FROM HERE WE ONLY MOVE
AHEAD, MY HANDS EXTENDED, FOR YOU TO GRAB AND HOLD ON TO, ONCE YOU HAD PRETENDED, YOU GOTTA DO THIS JUST FOR YOU, YOU SAW
WHAT STOOD BETWEEN, WHAT IT WOULD TAKE TO ACHIEVE YOUR DREAMS, BUT NOW, WE´RE A LITTLE OLDER AND WISER, SO I THOUGHT, BUT
WE KEEP MAKING THE SAME MISTAKES, OVER AGAIN, I´LL TRY, TO BE THERE FOR YOU, SOMEHOW, SOMEWAY, WE´RE GONNA MAKE IT THROUGH,
BUT NOW, WE´RE A LITTLE OLDER AND WISER SO I THOUGHT, BUT WE KEEP MAKING THE SAME MISTAKES, OVER AGAIN, I ONCE STOOD IN
YOUR SHOES, BUT NOW YOU´RE STANDING THERE INSTEAD, I CAN´T TELL YOU WHAT TO DO, FROM HERE WE ONLY MOVE AHEAD, MY HAND´S
EXTENDED, FOR YOU TO GRAB AND HOLD ON TO, ONCE YOU HAD PRETENDED, YOU GOTTA DO THIS JUST FOR YOU

4. SUBSTITUTE
DEATH IS NOT GLAMOROUS, LIFE IS NO EXPERIMENT, DRUGS CAN´T TAKE IT AWAY, ADDICTION MAKES EVERYONE PAY, NEEDLE PUSHED
THROUGH THE VEIN, POISON RIGHT TO YOUR BRAIN, BODY LEFT COLD AND LIMP, FUTURE LEFT ON THE BRINK, YOU DON´T JUST KILL
YOURSELF, YOUR SELFISHNESS KILLS EVERYONE ELSE, CAN´T POINT THE FINGER OR PIN THE BLAME, JUST WATCH YOUR LIFE AS IT SLIPS
DOWN THE DRAIN, DEATH, LIFE, DRUGS, ADDICTION, NEEDLE PUSHED THROUGH THE VEIN, POISON RIGHT TO YOUR BRAIN, BODY LEFT COLD
AND LIMP, FUTURE LIES ON THE BRINK, YOU DON´T JUST KILL YOURSELF, YOUR SELFISHNESS KILLS EVERYONE ELSE, CAN´T POINT THE
FINGER OR PIN THE BLAME, JUST WATCH YOUR LIFE AS IT SLIPS DOWN THE DRAIN, YOU THOUGHT YOU HAD THIS UNDER CONTROL, IGNORED
THE SIGNS AS THEY TOOK THEIR TOLL, WATCHED THESE CHEMICALS DESTROY YOUR LIFE, PUT YOUR FAMILY THROUGH HELL AND STRIFE
