"Everything Louder Than Everything Else" as written by and Jim Steinman....
Long, long ago
Back when the ocean was our home
We crawled out of the sea
So eager to breathe
And we looked to the sky
And to the limits of our mind
To understand why all things die
And how we came to be
Thought we knew all we need

But it's time
To get off our knees and offer our hands up to the Earth
And it's time
To find where we belong, see what it's worth
And it's time
Yeah, it's time

Don't lay me down
I don't ever wanna die
I've had too good a time
I really like it here
But all those prophets promised me
That if I could just believe
An eternal life in peace
Are waiting for me

But when I go there will probably be no
Angels singin', no harps ringin'
No pearly gates, nor devil's flames
Just
Nothing! Nothing! Nothing! Nothing!
Oh, oh wouldn't it be grand to take some comfort in
The same ancient texts that pacify my friends?
It wouldn't change the fact that all we know is we come and we go
So it goes, so it goes, so it goes

And it's... time
To get off our knees and offer our hands up to the Earth
And it's time
To find where we belong, know what it's worth
And it's time
Yeah, it's time!

Don't let me go
I'm not prepared
I'm so damn scared
That I'm almost there
Don't let me go
I'm not prepared
I'm so damn scared
That I'm almost... there (theeeere)
There (theeeeere)
There (theeeeere)
There (theeeeere)
