Oh

You've gotta fight for your life
There is nothing to fear but fear itself
Oh!

The devil dances in idle minds
Yeah!

Fight for your life [x3]

I won't turn back now
This will be no slow surrender
I won't turn back now
Carpe Diem, straight for the throat

Conflict, the all-consuming pain
Time lost will never be regained
Don't waste your breath
You can't save your strength
The battle rages in the here and now
See every second that you waste
Is time you'll never live again

Fight for your life [x3]
Fight for your fucking life

There is a price to pay
Death is a heartbeat away [x2]
A heart beat away

The devil dances in idle minds
[Scratching]
The, the devil, the devil dances in idle, idle, idle
The devil dances in idle minds

(Fight, fight, fight)
For your life
(Fight, fight, fight)
For your life
(Fight, fight, fight)
For your life
(Fight, fight, fight)

I won't turn back now
This will be no slow surrender
I won't turn back now
Carpe Diem, I gotta go straight for the throat

The devil dances idle our minds
The devil dances idle our minds
The devil dances
The devil dances idle our minds
The devil dances
The devil dances idle our minds
