Facing the fire, watching it rain down
A blaze around the city, I try to lure them around
Ideas and things, moving to a true plan
Movement defines us, and action makes a new man
Facing the fire, we'll watch it rain down

(You said) Push your life to the limit (Gotta push your life to the limit)
Don't be afraid just begin it (Don't be afraid)
You gotta take your life to the limit (Gotta take your life to the limit)
Don't wanna waste another minute (Don't wanna waste another minute)

Cuz "victor" is the wrong word, step by step a new life
Sent back to the jungle while carrying a clean knife

(You said) Push your life to its limit (Gotta push your life to the limit)
Don't be afraid just begin it (Don't be afraid)
(You gotta) Take your life to the limit (Gotta take your life to the limit)
Don't wanna waste another minute (Don't wanna waste another minute)

Cuz something happened on the way from Santiago, (Something happened on the way)
And we thought we'd stand the test of time
Cuz something happened on the way from Santiago, (Something happened that day)
We thought that others would understand the crime

Hero's returning, discarded by his best friend
Pride of the country, broke before he would bend
Ideas and things, moving to a true plan
Movement defines us, and he was a new man
Hero's returning, betrayed by his best friend

(You gotta) Push your life to the limit (Gotta push your life to the limit)
Don't be afraid, just begin it (Don't be afraid)
(You better) Take your life to the limit (Gotta take your life to the limit)
Don't wanna waste another minute (Don't wanna waste another minute)

Cuz something happened on the way to Santiago, (Something happened on the way)
And we thought we'd stand the test of time
Yes something happened on the way from Santiago, (Something happened that day)
We thought that others would understand the crime

Cuz something happened on the way to Santiago, (something happened on the way)
And we thought we'd stand the test of time
Oh something happened on the way from Santiago, (Something happened that day)
We thought that others would understand the crime

Oh, it's silent on the road from La Higuerma, (Something happened on the way)
Like a forest, when a shot's been fired (When a shot's been fired)
Oh it's silent on the road from Maciero (Yes, it's silent on the road)
The light that fades when lost love has died

Cuz something happened on the way to Santiago,
We thought the world would never be the same
Yes, something happened on the road from Santiago,
We thought that others would take up the blame
