Lyrics

Guilty as charged
But damn it, it ainít right
Thereís someone else controlling me

Death in the air
Strapped in the electric chair
This canít be happening to me

Who made you god to say,
ďI'll take your life from you?Ē

Flash before my eyes
Now itís time to die
Burning in my brain
I can feel the flame

No mercy for what weíre doing
No thought to even what weíve done
We donít need to feel the sorrow
No remorse for the helpless one

War without end
No remorse, no repent
We donít care what it meant
Another day, another death
Another sorrow, another breath
No remorse, no repent
We donít care what it meant
Another day, another death
Another sorrow, another breath

No life till leather
Weíre gonna kick some ass tonight
We got the metal madness
When our fans start screaming
Itís right, well alright
When we start to rock
We never want to stop again

Hit the lights
Hit the lights
Hit the lights

We know our fans are insane
Weíre gonna blow this place away
With volume higher
Than anything today, the only way
When we start to rock
We never want to stop again

Hit the lights
Hit the lights
Hit the lights

Time
Has taken a shit on you
The lines that crack your face
Famine
Your body it has torn through
Withered in every place
Pestilence
For what you've had to endure
And what you have put others through
Death
Deliverance for you for sure
Now thereís nothing you can do

Sound is ripping through your ears
The deafening sound of metal nears
Your bodyís waiting for his whips
The taste of leather on your lips

Hear the cry of war
Louder than before
With his sword in hand
To control the land
Crushing metal strikes
On this frightening night
Fall onto your knees
For the Phantom Lord

Victims falling under chains
You hear them crying dying pains
Fist of terrorís breaking through
Now thereís nothing you can do

Hear the cry of war
Louder than before
With his sword in hand
To control the land
Crushing metal strikes
On this frightening night
Fall onto your knees
For the Phantom Lord

Soon to fill our lungs, the hot winds of death
The gods are laughing, so take your last breath

Fight fire with fire
Ending is near
Fight fire with fire
Bursting with fear

Fight fire with fire

Fight
