Blood Red Skies Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
As the sun goes down, I move around
Keeping to the shadows
Life, hangs by a thread
And I've heard it said, that I'll not see tomorrow
Verse 2
If that's my destiny, it'll have to be
So I'll face the future
Running out of time
I'm on the line
But I'll go down fighting
Verse 3
Felt the hand of justice
Telling wrong from right
Threw me out upon the street in the middle of the night
Verse 4
Cybernetic heartbeat
Digital precise
Pneumatic fingers nearly had me in their vice
Verse 5
Not begging you
I'm telling you
Verse 6
You won't break me
You won't make me
You won't take me
Under blood red skies
Verse 7
You won't break me
You won't take me
I'll fight you under
Blood red skies
Verse 8
Through a shattered city, watched by laser eyes
Overhead the night squad glides
The decaying paradise
Verse 9
Automatic sniper
With computer sights
Scans the bleak horizon for its victim of the night
Verse 10
They're closing in
They'll never win
Verse 11
You won't break me
You won't make me
You won't take me
Under blood red skies
Verse 12
You won't break me
You won't take me
I'll fight you under
Blood red skies
Verse 13
As the end is drawing near
Standing proud, I won't give in to fear
As I die a legend will be born
I will stand. I will fight
You'll never take me alive
Verse 14
I'll stand my ground
I won't go down
Verse 15
You won't break me
You won't make me
You won't take me,
Under blood red skies
Verse 16
You won't break me
You won't take me
I'll fight you under
Blood red skies
Verse 17
You'll never take me alive
I'm telling you
Hands of justice
I will stand, I will fight
As the sun goes down
I won't give in to fear
