I walk the line, its' all I can do to live my life, I stand accused. There comes a time when you must decide are you dying to live, or you living to die? Baby come on, it's all right. Things go better with a little bit of rock 'n roll. When you live on the edge you're always aware that you are only one step from the fall. So raise your fist, rebel resist. Don't give up your dreams just yet. Don't believe the lies that you've been told. Take my hand, together we'll stand our ground. And make 'em understand, no matter how they try. 'They'll never take me alive.' Conviction lies in the heard of the youth. Salvation's fond in what is true. Life leads to death and death leads to life. And all men must die to be alive. Well it's a tough road baby. But one that needs a-walkin'. And it's only tough as if goes. And as you start down if you realize. That it's you and me against the world. So tell me why they try to break down our will. It won't be broken, it won't be shattered. I walk the line and I always will. They'll never take me alive.
