From the recording Rise From The Ashes

Lyrics

You ask, “How goes the battle?Are you holding the line?”I may not look itBut I’m doing just fineA little rough around the edgesA little worse for wearBut let me tell you I’m readyStop me if you dareThey tell you it can’t be doneSay you’re not the chosen oneMakes me want to scream and shoutYou don’t know what you’re talking aboutGonna get up, won’t give upRise to the occasionAnd see if within me(It’s true – Within you)Beats the heart of a championI’ve been drinking my lifeFrom a broken cupA lot of time in the trenchesThat’ll toughen you upThere comes a time – Oh, yes, there doesTo take off the glovesTo say, “That’s it – I’ve had enough”Show them what you’re made ofSo when you’re down for the countYou hear the standing eightIt’s right down to the wireAnd you’re cursing your fate…
