For One Night Only

Sun, 10/26/2014 - 21:35 -- swhalen

Anticipation thicker than the white smoke

Flashing strobe lights that dazzle your eyes

Raise your voice from the depths of the pit

Mingling with the entire crowd’s cries

Standing united for one purpose here

Metal passion the Great Equalizer

Race, sex, creed all mean less than your name

Once you get slammed by this hypersonic piledriver

 

Push comes to shove

Can’t get enough

In or out of the crush

You’ll still feel the rush

 

For one night only, your family is here

So come join us in this celebration

For one night only, you’ve nothing to fear

Split the air with the sounds of elation

 

Can’t recall when you last felt like this

Wait, that’s right, it was at the last show

Check your external stress at the door

This shared mirth is all you care to know

Metal Maniacs Flying High Again

No Remorse, so just Stand Up and Shout

Forget yesterday like there’s no tomorrow

Because that’s what heavy metal’s all about

 

Sing every word

No voice unheard

Miming out every note

Apprehension is smote

 

For one night only, your family is here

So come join us in this celebration

For one night only, you’ve nothing to fear

Split the air with the sounds of elation
