(Originally recorded by Budgie)

Look inside and you will see
The words are cutting deep inside my brain
Thunder burning, quickly burning
Knife of words is driving me insane
Insane, yeah

Raven black is on my track
He shows me how to neutralize the knife
Show to me in surgery
The art of fighting words to conquer life
Conquer life, yeah

Now the wicked lance of fear
Is driving from my heady mountain brain
Crash course in brain surgery
Has stopped the bloody knife of words again
Yeah, yeah, yeah

    General CommentIn this version they replace the "Oh, baby, I can rock n' roll" part with drunken bellowing.

    General CommentI personally prefer the original- it doesn't work particularly well as a two-guitar song.

    General CommentBudgie didi a really good job with this song, however with that said. I cannot listen to two minuets of the original recording without finding the singers voice incredibly annoying. Its has good guitar, good drums, good music, good lyrics, but get a good singer!

    General CommentOi leave budgie alone lol their new guitarest (simon lees) is my guitar teacher. the budgie version is by far the better as the one guitar works best and its a bit softer witch i think makes the song better.
