I've seen them run
I've seen them broken
I've seen them fold,
Not a word even spoken

All it takes is a little fire

Well they watch your eyes
They learn your weakness
They turn it up
And you know the lean is on,
The lean is on.

Sooner or later,
You're gonna catch heat
There's no use in running away.
Everything hurries to be eaten or eat
They say...

Oh Papa was right - nothing rates higher
The coolest of the cool
Is grace under fire

Back in the shadows
There's the law of the city
Work on the one
Who shows the first sign of pity

I know... I know....

Well they knock on your door
They call out your number
And your legs won't move
And your heart starts running
You'll know - you'll know

Oh Papa was right - nothing rates higher
The coolest of the cool
Is grace under fire

You gotta be diamond
You gotta be steel
The lucky have ice in their veins
They laugh at the devil
And burn like a torch in the rain

Oh, but Jesus was cool
(no one bet higher)
The measure of heart
Is grace under fire
