"The Battle Rages on" as written by and Gillian Blackmore....
Been so many words, so much to say
Words are not enough to keep the guns at bay
Some live in fear, some do not
Some gamble everything on who gets the final shot

Oh, don't talk to me of love
It's obvious it's not enough
Annihilation kill 'em all
Capitulation watch the mighty fall
The road to glory is lined in red
And though the reason now is gone
The battle rages on

Was it love or hate that got here first?
Hate's a habit, it's hard to shake the curse
Kill to live, and live to die
Human nature you let the strong survive

Oh don't talk to me of love
Be serious, it's not enough
Annihilation kill 'em all
Capitulation watch the mighty fall
The road to glory is lined in red
And though the reason now is gone
The battle rages on

    General CommentIn 1993... the tension between Blackmore and Gillan came to a head and Gillan was fired, even DP was thinking of another vocalist but the DP anniversary brought him back. So i think this song about the whole thing between Gillan and Blackmore. One of my favourite songs of the album.. not the best thing DP ever did but its pretty good.

    General CommentThe whole theme of Gillan/Blackmore tension and differences is also themed on the album cover which is brilliant by the way.
