"What It Takes" as written by Carlo Verni and Robert Joseph Ellsworth....
Train, train burning like a absolute
Drunk with the love of the fire
Brain, brain burning and the leather boot
Kicking like he never gets tired

I saw the coming of the faster than light speed
Burning track, conventional fool
Wham, crack, bam, slap, far out of sight speed
Hammered like a kicking mule

Here we come now, here we go

Need you now, no mistakes
Stand up tall and give me what it takes

Hit the ground running, I was faster than the light speed
Burning before my feet hit the floor
Damn machine gunning kept me far out of sight feed
Pull the shades and lock all the 1, 2, 3, door

I saw the coming, coming into the void
And I was drunk with the love of the fire
Was a knock down, drag out, never fail me boots
I was kicking like I never get 1, 2, 3, more

Here we come now, here we go

Need you now, no mistakes
Stand up tall and give me what it takes
Need you now, I'm not afraid
Stand up straight and kick me, that's what it takes

Little hot, a little cold
A little young is growing old
A little prick, a little bold
Never did what he was told

I'll tell you why you're feeling bad
A little played, a little sad
A little more you never had
A little sane is going mad

Seems you had enough of me
Enough or more eternity
I'll tell you what I'm going to be
I'm going to be your misery

And when you feel you're going to break
Say your prayers for goodness sake
We're going to see what you can take
We're going to see now what it takes

Count it as you did before, count it out 2, 2, 3, 4
Count it when you're going to break
Count it out it's what it takes
Count it when you're feeling bad

Count it when you're going mad
Count on me for goodness sake
Count on it and what it takes
What it takes, what it takes

Train, train burning like a absolute
Drunk with the love of the fire
Brain, brain burning and the leather boot
Kicking like he never gets tired

I saw the coming of the faster than light speed
Burning track, conventional fool
Wham, crack, bam, slap, far out of sight speed
Hammered like a kicking mule

Here we come now, go

Need you now, no mistakes
Stand up tall and give me what it takes
Need you now, I'm not afraid
Stand up straight and kick me, that's what it takes

If that's what it takes
What it takes
