VERSE:
Hell's fire is burning,
And the wheels are turninng,
Boy, they're gonna burn tonight!
Keep your hand on the trigger,
Battle's gettin' bigger,
You wanna live, you gotta fight!

CHORUS:
In the heat of the battle,
Somebody's got to die!
In the heat of the battle,
It's an eye for an eye!
In the heat of the battle,
You're never gonna get out alive!

VERSE:
Bullets fly past your head,
Just one hit and you're dead,
You can't run, or look for cover!
Call in the cannon's fire,
The battle's getting dire,
You just wanna be with your lover!

CHORUS:
In the heat of the battle,
Somebody's got to die!
In the heat of the battle,
It's an eye for an eye!
In the heat of the battle,
You're never gonna get out alive!

BRIDGE:
All the guns and the noise,
It's just you and the boy.
A field all covered in blood,
Mixed in with dirt and the mud.
They keep asking for more,
This is a God-Damn war!

GUITAR SOLO

INTERLUDE

CHORUS:
In the heat of the battle,
Somebody's got to die!
In the heat of the battle,
It's an eye for an eye!
In the heat of the battle,
You're never gonna get out alive!

SHORT GUITAR SOLO

BREAK

CHORUS, WITH SOLO

In the heat of the battle,
Somebody's got to die!
In the heat of the battle,
It's an eye for an eye!
In the heat of the battle,
You're never gonna get out alive!

In the heat of the battle...

(Last line repeats until the guitar solo is over.)

It's supposed to have an Iron Maiden feel, with a galloping rythm and whatever.

I'd lay off the Boy in the first verse. You can get the same syllable count by changing gonna by going to if you take out the boy. Just sounds pretty weird (fruity). Didn't read past that part.

Hmm... seems like I made a spelling error. It's supposed to be "You and the boys". I'll consider changing that line, though.
