Blood and Fire

Album: A Different Kind of Truth (2012)
  • You can always tell the winners
    The saints and the sinners
    Down at the starting line
    I'm a lucid vision
    Of the unforgiven
    I'm your wave-toss guy

    King-size, we were crushin'
    Trouble by the dozen
    Stakes have never been higher
    Come back when you're younger
    'Cause I can feel the thunder
    1-800-GUITAR

    Ooooh yeahhh
    We came, we came, we came through blood and fire
    We came, we came, we came through blood and fire

    Now look at all of the people here tonight

    It's a world of fools
    That's just what's expected
    None of 'em know it
    Or even suspect it
    God must love the lazy
    Shiftless and the crazy
    Puttin' so many in life

    Ooooh yeahhh

    We came, we came, we came through blood and fire
    We came, we came, we came through blood and fire

    Now look at all of the people here tonight

    Forgotten empires
    Lost victories long past
    Every time I bloomed again
    I thought it was the last
    And then something crazy happens
    And boom!
    I'm doing the victory dance!

    Told ya I was comin' back
    (Told ya!)
    Say you missed me
    (Say it!)
    Say it like ya mean it!

    You can always tell the winners
    The saints and the sinners
    Down at the starting line

    Ooooh yeahhh
    We came, we came, we came through blood and fire
    We came, we came, we came through blood and fire
    We came, we came, we came through blood and fire Writer/s: Wolfgang Van Halen, Alex Van Halen, Edward Van Halen, David Lee Roth
