"Heart Of Steel" as written by and Joey Demaio....
Build a fire a thousand miles away
to light my long way home
I ride a comet
My trail is long to stay
Silence is a heavy stone
I fight the world and take all they can give
There are times my heart hangs low
Born to walk against the wind
Born to hear my name
No matter where I stand I'm alone

Stand and fight
Live by your heart
Always one more try
I'm not afraid to die
Stand and fight
Say what you feel
Born with a heart of steel

Burn the bridge behind you
Leave no retreat
There's only one way home
Those who laugh and crowd the path
and cut each other's throats
Will fall like melting snow
They'll watch us rise with fire in our eyes
They'll bow their heads
Their hearts will hang low
Then we'll laugh and they will kneel
and know this heart of steel was
Too hard to break
Too hard to hold

Stand and fight
Live by your heart
Always one more try
I'm not afraid to die
Stand and fight
Say what you feel
Born with a heart of steel

    General CommentI realle feel connectet in some way to this song. The first time I heard id I cried. It is so beautifull and still to day I get tears in my eyes.
    The words;
    burn the bridge behind you
    leave no retreat
    there's only one way home
    I can se that what I myself have experince in my life. I will stand and fight for what I feel is right and know this heart of steel will never break.

    General CommentIt sounds like the moments before a final battle that will end the long war. But hey, I dunno.

    General CommentThis song might be cheesy, but...it's helped me a bit, it put it in my mind that i've GOT to get myself a heart of steel (a.k.a i gotta still care but make myself immune to all pain) and it worked xD

    General CommentI love manowar, they always make me laugh god damn there lyrics are funny, and don't forget the leather *shudders* lmfao. anyway, this song is about standing up for what you believe in, especially against someone else whose beliefs are wrong (in manowars eyes anyway) standing up to people who 'cut each others throats' meaning people who talk down to others or betray each other. 'burn the bridge behind you' you will go all the way for what you believe in. not exactly sure whay he rides a comet though...odd man that joey...odd

    I love these lines, and how they talk about those who look down on you for listening to metal.

    General Commentfollow your heart. don't be a nihilist. don't give in to the crowds. fight for something deep in your heart. a great metal song that is fierce, true and compassionate all at once.
