Steve Vai – Firewall lyrics

Boom Shika-Boom Shika ba-ka-tu-ka
Boom Shika doo-ba-boom-ba-tacka-chooka
Boom Shika Boom Boom Chika Ba-koom-ta
Shika-ba-ku-ta Brrrr Chika ba-kum-ta
Boom Chica brrr brr brrr chi-koom-pa
Brrr-cha-kum-ta brr-Chica ba-poom-pa
Boom ta-ta boom boom Shi-ka-ti-ka
Rra-ka-kack Rra-ka-tu-ka pa-ka-tu-ka

It's been a while since I knew you before
Hindsight says I was so much to blame
But even then, you possessed so much more
I buried my guilt under my fantasies

I never knew what it would do to you, oh my God
I dealt a hand and played with fate
But I still feel, and I surrender to, your intoxicant

But I want you to really know me
But when I try to get into your space

I run into your Firewall
Medusa's home
Built out of hurt and pain

Welcome to the Firewall
If I get too close
I will go down in flames
Eh, just look at me now
I'm on fire.

And if I could, I would get down in your soul
And clean up the mess that I made
Maybe will and grace
Will replace your faith
And we can embrace

You'll never get to know me
Unless you
Let me touch your face

A victim of your Firewall
The devil's own
Destroy your enemies
I dance into your Firewall
When you're done, there'll be nothing left of me

Suck me into your flames, and let me burn deep down inside until I...

Boom Shika-Boom Shika ba-ka-tu-ka
Boom Shika doo-ba-boom-ba-tacka-chooka
Boom Shika Boom Boom Chika Ba-koom-ta
Shika-ba-ku-ta Brrrr Chika ba-kum-ta
Boom Chica brrr brr brrr chi-koom-pa
Brrr-cha-kum-ta brr-Chica ba-poom-pa
Boom ta-ta boom boom Shi-ka-ti-ka
Rra-ka-kack Rra-ka-tu-ka pa-ka-tu-ka

Firewall
Medusa's home
Built out of hurt and pain

Welcome to the Firewall
If I get too close
I will go down in flames

A victim of your Firewall
The devil's own
Destroy your enemies
I dance into your Firewall
When you're done, there'll be nothing left of me

I run into your Firewall
Medusa's home
Built out of hurt and pain

Welcome to the Firewall
If I get too close
I will go down in flames

A victim of your Firewall
And now I'm on fire!
