Stand Or Fall

Album: Spreading The Disease (1985)
  • 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
