The Contenders

11 Don't Talk to Strangers - Dio
12 Path of Glory - Demons & Wizards

Probably my favorite lyrics written by Hansi Kursch and a favorite song overall - very relatable lyrics where every single line can be quoted in different contexts. Examples:
"I live a life of loyalty true to myself and my own".
"The path of life lies open wide for me. Come join the path of glory, leave all your fear behind".
"So many times it's hopeless dark and gray. No way out. And other times it's hope that saves the day".
"I know the secrets are within me". - Metal_Treasure

13 Holy Diver - Dio
14 Raining Blood - Slayer
15 Cowboys From Hell - Pantera
16 The View - Lou Reed & Metallica

I AM THE TABLE - christangrant

18 The Heretic Anthem - Slipknot
19 Crystal Mountain - Death
20 For Whom the Bell Tolls - Metallica

I like to quote this song. - Element119

21 Hello from the Gutter - Overkill

I like to quote this from the song for some reason:
"Welcome to the gutter!
We've been expecting you! " - Element119

22 Watch the Children Pray - Metal Church

"We hold our fate and make the choice,
But we'll not listen to that still small voice.
Are we just crazy, out of our minds?
Wish this were someplace, another time" - Element119

23 Anybody Listening? - Queensryche

I just love the lyrics to this song.

"Is there anybody listening?
Is there anyone who smiles without a mask?
What's behind the words-images they know will please us?
I'll take what's real. Bring up the lights." - Element119

24 Youth Gone Wild - Skid Row

"They call us problem child
We spend our lives on trial
We walk an endless mile
We are the youth gone wild
We stand and we won't fall
We're the one and one for all
The writing's on the wall
We are the youth gone wild" - Element119
