Hey you!
Fighting for your life where you've never fought before
Hey you!
Running from the scene and nailing down your door
Oh yeah!
Back 'em off, brother
Oh yeah!
Terminate the mother now
You know you gotta get hard

The world needs guts
The world needs power
Show me some blood
Show me some cuts
Show me some scars
The world needs guts
The world needs us

Hey you!
Crying 'cause your best friend's splattered against the wall
Hey you!
Some maniac butcher's tryin' to hack away your balls
Oh yeah!
Back 'em off, brother
Oh yeah!
Terminate the mother now
You know you gotta get hard

The world needs guts
The world needs power
Show me some blood
Show me some cuts
Show me some scars
The world needs guts
The world needs us

Hey, hey, what's in your eyes? I think I'm getting through
Say, say that you despise the things they did to you
Pray, pray some day their throats are in your hands
Take them, shake them 'til they understand

The world needs guts
The world needs power
Show me some blood
Show me some cuts
Show me some scars
The world needs guts
The world needs us

Hey you!
You gonna let some scumbag stab you in the back
Hey you!
Turn around and kick him and re-arrange his sack
Oh yeah!
Back 'em off, brother
Oh yeah!
Terminate the mother now
You know you gotta get hard

The world needs guts
The world needs power
Show me some blood
Show me some cuts
Show me some scars
The world needs guts
The world needs us
