Well I just got back from a break in the fight
I was weighing in heavy but still feeling alright
all I hear in the distance mines and shells
here come the sirens wailing another attack to be repelled
do you think we're gonna make it?
I don't know unless we try
you could sit here scared to move or we could take them by surprise
it's submission that they want it's surrender that they need
when we're doing it their way their aims will be achieved

They're gonna come when you're not ready
when you're not to well-prepared
they're gonna prey upon your weakness
no man's soul is ever spared
you've got to stand up, yeah, and fight them show them what it's all
about this man is not for sale there will be no backing down

Stand up and fight and I'll stand up with you! We shall succeed
Stand up and fight and I'll stand up with you!

They won't get me they won't get me thought they never cease to try
they won't get me they won't get me I would rather fight and die
they won't get me they won't get me well my friend will they get you?
when they get you when they get you tell me what are you gonna do?

do you think we're gonna make it?
you could sit here scared to move or we could take them by surprise
it's submission that they want it's surrender that they need
when we're doing it their way their aims will be achieved

They're gonna come when you're not ready
when you're not to well-prepared
they're gonna prey upon your weakness
no man's soul is ever spared
you've got to stand up, yeah, and fight them show them what it's all
about this man is not for sale there will be no backing down

They're gonna come when you're not ready
when you're not to well-prepared
they're gonna prey upon your weakness
no man's soul is ever spared
you've got to stand up, yeah, and fight them show them what it's all
about this man is not for sale there will be no backing down

Stand up and fight and I'll stand up with you! We shall succeed
Stand up and fight and I'll stand up with you!
Stand up and fight and I'll stand up with you! We shall succeed
Stand up and fight and I'll stand up with you!

    General CommentI went to school with one of the guitarists. I remember flipping through the channels and coming to MTV and they were playing this video (yes, I couldn't believe it either) and I saw Marc Orrell playing frickin' guitar on frickin' MTV. Anywho, I do like the song, mad quality.
