"The Chase" as written by Yolanda Quartey, Stewart Jackson, David Brayley and Shereen Shabanna....
You think you're smart, inventive
Because you've figured out my game?
Pride is a handy substitute
When you've got only yourself to blame

All my dreams I've realized while you were indisposed
While you've spent eighteen years watching TV
I've watched my fortune grow

Here I am I'm finally on the outside and
You're nowhere near where I've been
I've got you where I want you at last
You've got no idea who I am

We circle around each other waiting for reaction
We circle around each other waiting for reaction
Wanting satisfaction for the past
I want nothing from the past

Always been so easy you're like a puppet on my string
Throwing down hollow threats, unsure of what to think
Why should I care? You wouldn't dare
You're nothing but worthless I swear

From where I stand I've got you where I want you
You'll never take me! Never take me down
I've seen all I need to put you in the ground
Revenge is normal, a typical reaction

I've seen your cynical reaction
If you're standing outside of in
Always on the outside of in

Here we are at last facing oblivion
And this is where finally it ends
You don't belong here
Holding fast to each of our sins

With hope by my side, I'll survive to see the dawn
Believe me or not you owe me, I owe you nothing
I gave your life a purpose
I owe you nothing but your death
Without me you wouldn't have learned a thing

    General CommentThis song is about the personal war between the personality of Dr. X and Nikki, with Nikki running away Dr. X. Amazing vocals by Ronnie James Dio

    General CommentLove the "We circle around each other waiting for reaction" part. Great harmonizing between two of the best vocalists in the history of rock. Just wish I could have heard them do the same back in the 80s, when they were at the top of their game.
