The Gauntlet Lyrics

by Dropkick Murphys

Well I just got back from a break in the fight I was weighing in heavy
come the sirens wailing another attack to be repelled do you think
but still feeling alright all I hear in the distance mines and shells here
scared to move or we could take them by surprise it's submission that
we're gonna make it? I don't know unless we try you could sit here
They're gonna come when you're not ready when you're not to
they want it's surrender that they need when we're doing it their way

well-prepared they're gonna prey upon your weakness no man's
show them what it's all about this man is not for sale there will be no
their aims will be achieved
soul is ever spared you've got to stand up, yeah, and fight them
Chorus:

Stand up and fight and I'll stand up with you! We shall succeed
backing down

They won't get me they won't get me thought they never cease to
they won't get me they won't get me well my friend will they get you?
when they get you when they get you tell me what are you gonna dotry they won't get me they won't get me I would rather fight and die
