                Just flick the switch and twist my wrist
                The beast comes alive, bringing me back to life
                A tap to shift and flick of the wrist
                The beast takes flight bringing me back to life
                Kill the silence, tear apart the dark
                The beast rips the road, hell yeah, i feel alive.
