Balls to the wall, man - Metal_Treasure

10 Wherever I May Roam - Metallica

And the road becomes my bride
I have stripped of all but pride
So in her I do confide
And she keeps me satisfied
Gives me all I need
And with dust in throat I crave
Only knowledge will I save
To the game you stay a slave

Rover, wanderer
Nomad, vagabond
Call me what you will yeah
But I'll take my time anywhere
I'm free to speak my mind anywhere - Metal_Treasure

The Contenders

11 Path of Glory - Demons & Wizards

So many times it's hopeless dark and gray
No way out
And other times it's hope that saves the day

A sea of life so peaceful and serene
The way out
The path of life lies open wide for me
Come join the path of glory
Leave all your fear behind - Metal_Treasure

The Power is at my command. - Metal_Treasure
