"Tooth and Nail" as written by and George/dokken Lynch....
Desperate living, driving me mad
Writings on the wall
Crushed all our hopes and the dreams we once had
Just to watch them fall

Tearing it up in the daytime
Burning it down at night
How long does it take
To break the spell
Straight to the top
Tooth and Nail

Last generation, reckless and free
Up against the odds
Thoughts of revenge are going trough me
Fate lies in the cards

Tearing it up in the daytime
Burning it down at night
How long does it take
To break the spell
Straight to the top
Tooth and Nail

Desperate living, trying to see
Breaking all the rules
Only the strong are gonna be free
From a world of fools

Tooth and nail
Tooth and nail
Straight to the top
Tooth and nail

    General CommentI suppose it is about breaking a spell. Don't really know what the title means, but it's a great 80's rock band and song.

    General CommentI'm not exactly sure, I think it may kind of have something to do with how the world is getting crazier and crazier, and people's actions are kind of ruining the world? I'm not sure. Tooth And Nail means like going all out, like if the world were to end, people would fight Tooth And Nail to survive. Maybe its about the end of the world or something.
