"Step Up" as written by Stevie Benton, Jason Jones, Michael Luce and C.j. Pierce....
1, 2, 3 - Go!

Broken,
Yeah, you've been living on
The edge of a broken dream
Nothing,
Yeah, that's the only thing
You'll ever take away from me

I'm never gonna stop,
I'm never gonna drop,
Ain't no different
Than it was before

So take some good advice,
You better stop and think twice,
Before you take your first step,
Out that door

If you want to step up (step up),
You're gonna get knocked down (knocked down)
If you want to step up (step up),
You're gonna get knocked down

You had your chance to walk away
Live to see another day

If you want to step up (step up),
You're gonna get knocked down (knocked down).
You're gonna get knocked down...

Aaah...

Suffering,
Yeah, that's the only thing here
That's left for you
Nothing,
Yeah, that's the only thing
You're ever gonna - do

I'm never gonna stop,
I'm never gonna drop,
Ain't no different
Than it was before

So take some good advice,
You better stop and think twice,
Before you take your first step,
Out that door

So if you want to step up (step up),
You're gonna get knocked down (knocked down).
If you want to step up (step up),
You're gonna get knocked down

You had your chance to walk away
Live to see another day

If you want to step up (step up),
You're gonna get knocked down (knocked down).
You're gonna get knocked down...

You're gonna get knocked down...

And now you've crossed that line...
You must be out your mind

Go

If you want to step up (step up),
You're gonna get knocked down (knocked down).
If you want to step up (step up),
You're gonna get knocked down

You had your chance to walk away
Live to see another day

If you want to step up (step up),
You're gonna get knocked down (knocked down).
You're gonna get knocked down...

You're gonna get knocked down (step up)

You're gonna get knocked down...

You're gonna get knocked down (step up)

You're gonna get knocked... down!

    General CommentThis song is rather disappointing. Their new vocalist did not impress me at all with this.

    General CommentAt first this song was disappointing, but hey, they did what I believe Dave would have wanted... and that's moving on. This song is great... what I am disappointed about is that it appears that the album is really just about girls and money. So now that they're back they kind of give the Motley Crue impression. But they're still rockin!

    General CommentI love the song, it is freaking awesome and well it was the theme for Westlemania 20 as well as The Punisher Soundtrack. Personally, I think the video itself just didn't really go along with the song. I ean the song is just ass-kicking to the highest degree and yet the video looks like the new singer just wanted a reason to make out with bitches in hot tubs and living like Scarface. I seriously think the video could have been way better!

    General CommentPersonally I think the song is killer, but I don't like the video too. The "new" singer has such a great voice on this song, but when I saw the video for the first time, I was like: "WTF?!" Half porn, and full of the dumb cliches that we already have enough of in this fucked up world. Sitting in the hot tub with some attention-greedy and powerhungry sluts messed up the whole song imho. Plus, the video makes absolutely no fucking sense in context to the lyrics. So I can only stand the song when I'm listening to it WITHOUT seeing the video.

    General CommentI agree with the video - I expected a lot of fights and explosions, but was sorely disappointed. It's the kind of dumb self-serving video I'd expect from an RnB song, not something like this - Compare to the Sinner video, and it's a BIG change. This puts the song is a poor light - instead of stepping up for a fight, it seems more like stepping up to a business takeover.
