"Stand Alone" as written by and Maury Yeston....
Listen not to ones who preach
Those who feel you're a freak
Everything about you is wrong
You must be sick, you don't belong

Father said, worry not what they say
Use your mind, your own free will
In a time when everyone follows
Ignorance can kill

They only say what they want you to hear
Half-truths have been twisted to conceal your fate
In a world of spoon-fed emotion
Intelligence can save

Stand alone
Hear what I say
Stand alone
You will seize the day

Son, say what you mean, don't be afraid
Tell them how you feel, hear what I say
Be true to yourself and true to your own
Your spirit will crush the hearts of stone

Stand alone
Hear what I say
Stand alone
It's a leap of faith

    General CommentHe said "European influence" and he's right. And "god" should've been "GOOD".

    Iced Earth OWNZ and this song is my whole philosophy on life summed up.

    General CommentIced Earth is Power Metal. Just a heavier band in the genre.

    General CommentIf I had my own theme song, this would be it. It's basicly about being yourself and not letting other influence you, no matter how much you won't fit in.

    General CommentKick-ass song. Anybody else notice how the main riff sounds like Metallica's "Blackened", but slowed down?

    General CommentSick song. This is what I'm all about, standing alone and not giving a fuck what people think because it's ignorance. It's about standing up for what you believe in instead of buying half assed truths and whatnot.
