Manowar – Heart of Steel

Manowar is an American heavy metal band from Auburn, New York, formed in 1980. They are known for writing lyrics with an emphasis on the heavy metal genre itself, fantasy (particularly sword and sorcery) and mythological topics (particularly Norse mythology).

They also hold the world record for the longest heavy metal concert after playing for 5 hours and 1 minute in Bulgaria in 2008. ________________________________________ Build a fire a thousand miles away to light my long way home I ride a comet My trail is long to stay Silence is a heavy stone… I fight the world and take all they can give There are times my heart hangs low Born to walk against the wind Born to hear my name No matter where I stand I’m alone Stand and fight Live by your heart Always one more try I’m not afraid to die Stand and fight say what you feel Born with a heart of steel Burn the bridge behind you Leave no retreat There’s only one way home Those who laugh and crowd the path And cut each other’s throats Will fall like melting snow They’ll
