Overkill – All Over But The Shouting lyrics

Once upon a time
When you had us all in line
Thought that we would never learn
The word out on the street
Was you never felt the heat
Even when the fires burned
Then the dogs of war
Barking at your door
Is this what it's all about?
So we broke the deal
It's how it made us feel
Drummer started on the shout

Heard a thousand drummers on a solitary light
Heat of a thousand summers explode into the night
They hid behind the curtains, their faces were concealed
A voice above the ashes screamed
I want to make a deal
I'm back on my heels

Hell raising, drums blazing
All over but the shouting now
Hell raising, drums blazing
Careful what you wish for, you may get it now
Hell raising, drums blazing
All over but the shouting now

The look upon your face
When we blew it into space
And let the pieces fall about
Destruction on the ground
The heart of freedom found
In a voice could only shout
The pain would go away
The pride inside would stay
The blood is dripping you're alive
The ones that stood and fell
Were all remembered well
The cross of an animal 5

Cold calculation got them to fall into line
Annihilation, got them working the shine
They scream and shout
All over but the
Beat generation in a room full of war
Evacuation as the stones hit the door
They want out, all over but the shout

So, once upon a time
When we lit the line
Thought that we would never learn
The word out on the street
They melted in the heat
Even when the fires burned
Then the dogs of war
Scratching at your door
Is it what it's all about?
So we broke the deal
For everything you steal
We start the drummer on the shout
