Burning Heart - Survivor

Two worlds collide
Rival nations
It's a primitive clash
Venting years of frustrations
Bravely we hope
Against all hope
There is so much at stake
Seems our freedom's up
Against the ropes

Does the crowd understand?
Is it East versus West
Or man against man
Can any nation stand alone

[Chorus]
In the burning Heart
Just about to burst
There's a quest for answers
An unquenchable thirst
In the darkest night
Rising like a spire
In the burning heart
The unmistakable fire
In the burning heart

In the warriors code
There's no surrender
Though his body says stop
His spirit cries - never
!
Deep in our soul
A quiet ember
Knows it's you against you
It's the paradox
That drives us on

It's a battle of wills
In the heat of attack
It's the passion that kills
The victory is yours alone

[Chorus]
In the burning Heart
Just about to burst
There's a quest for answers
An unquenchable thirst
In the darkest night
Rising like a spire
In the burning heart
The unmistakable fire

In the burning Heart
Just about to burst
There's a quest for answers
An unquenchable thirst
In the darkest night
Rising like a spire
In the burning heart
The unmistakable fire

In the burning heart
Just about to burst
There's a quest for answers
An unquenchable thirst
In the darkest night
Rising like a spire
In the burning heart
The unmistakable fire

In the burning heart
