Run!
Hunt!
Kill!
Man in his base nature
Searching for food
A quest for fire
He sharpens his spear

The time has passed
And man has changed
Why am I here?
These mortal chains
Of animal strains
Causing this man to fear

Why do we rock?
ROCK!
Why do we roll?
ROLL!
Why do we rock?
WHY NOT?!?
Why do we rock?
ROCK!
The Grim Reaper's toll
TOLL!
Why do we rock?
WHY NOT?!?

WHY ROCK?
WHY NOT?
WHY ROCK?
WHY NOT?
WHY ROCK?
WHY NOT?
Why do we rock?
Why not?

Now comes the time
A dangerous mind
Of scenes of death and hate
Let it be known
As the Dark One has shown
Push the button
And seal the fate

Can I survive?
Am I alive?
Only the Good One knows
Fortune be told
A Prince and his robe
Raised me hands
And clutched the skull

Why do we rock?
ROCK!
Why do we roll?
ROLL!
Why do we rock?
WHY NOT?!?
Why do we rock?
ROCK!
The Grim Reapers toll
TOLL!
Why do we rock?
WHY NOT?!?

WHY ROCK?
WHY NOT?
WHY ROCK?
WHY NOT?
WHY ROCK?
WHY NOT?
Why do we rock?
Why not?

(Subliminal messages)

Water
Earth
Life
The Alchemist calls the Cracken
Listen to his voice
As he stands on the edge of the chasm
and asks this question:
WHY NOT?

Why do we rock?
ROCK!
Why do we roll?
ROLL!
Why do we rock?
WHY NOT?!?
Why do we rock?
ROCK!
The Grim Reapers toll
TOLL!
Why do we rock?
WHY NOT?!?

WHY ROCK?
WHY NOT?
WHY ROCK?
WHY NOT?
WHY ROCK?
WHY NOT?
Why do we rock?
Why not?
