NUR EIN XIII - Trial By Fire - Lyrics

Postby carlo bruno jr » Sat May 05, 2018 1:48 pm

Trial of fire (Carlo Bruno Jr.)

I want to know right now, what material I’m made of.
I need to know if i can feel in my element.

You have the gun and you have all those hostages.
I have the megaphone and all the odds to lose

My movements in the game will prove if I’m the right player.
If I can go through your shell to overcome this trial of fire.
Trial of fire.

The time ran out,
Your patience too,
and I do not know what to do.

You promise me that you will throw dead bodies through the window.

Your wife is here
She wants to know if you will go home tonight.
Because if not, she will call her italian friend.

This movement in the game will prove if I’m the right player
If I can go through your shell to overcome this trial of fire.
Trial of fire.

Yes, I’m the right player
Finally I came through your shell and overcome this trial of fire.
Trial of fire.

(Vom Vorton)

you didn’t say why you were going
you just went
and left me on my own feeling small
in an oversized apartment
now I see you on the news
an international hero
but couldn’t you have
taken me with you, though?

did you want to explore
and see what you would find?
did you mean to save the world
or just leave me behind?

I don’t want to forget you
I’m sorry I upset you
I’ll send you a smile by wire
if you survive this trial by fire

I don’t know why you did
all the things you did
but now I can’t ask…
you’re completely off the grid
I follow your story
like a curious stranger
you always seemed to love
the smell of danger

did you find your calling?
did you want to escape
if you’re checking your mail
I hope you get this tape

I don’t want to forget you
I’m sorry I upset you
I’ll send you a smile by wire
if you survive this trial by fire

Trial by Fire
by Cavedwellers

Verse 1
We can't begin to trust you
Suspicious charlatan
You've found the holy lance
But it looks like a piece of pipe
Liar liar let's light up your pants
There's a way to settle scores tonight

Chorus
It’s a trial by fire
It’s a trial by fire
Help us to discern
If your trust is earned
Escape the burns
The Lesson learned

Verse 2
I you hear a siren calling
Her allure must be denied
We want to believe in justice
On the court the ball don't lie
It doesn't matter how much you swear
Or if you're holding a holy book
You're controlling a jumpy mare
In the sight of a queenside rook

Chorus

Bridge
If you suffer the ordeal
And live to tell the tale
We can call it evidence
That there was no mystic vale

Verse 3
We must respect the outcome
Auspicious harlequin
You managed to beat the system
Or maybe truly you’re innocent
It's damning to blame the victim
There's some logic to circumvent

Chorus

Trial by Fire
by Lichen Throat

Summertime’s coming, and I need a job,
Something outside, away from the urban mob.
See an ad from the Forest Service;
Job looks fun, but it makes me nervous.
Hire me to the job to which I aspire;
Feel I’m ready for a trial by fire.

Weeks of training with the fire crew
They’ve been showing us what to do.
End every day covered in sweat and ashes,
So we’ll be ready when the lightning flashes.
Got a shovel, axe, and fireproof attire,
Not sure I’m ready for a trial by fire.

There’s a fire burning up at Wheeler Peak,
On the north slope, just past Placer Creek.
We’ll have to hold it at the fire line
Or it’ll burn 80 square miles of pines.
My hair is singed, and I’m deathly tired,
But I’m going to make it through this trial by fire.

Trial By Fire
by Pigfarmer Jr

Even though I said I'll always love you
I get the feeling that you think we are through
You've got me wondering why you do all the things that you do
Why you lie

You turn and look at me and say you still care
You cross your heart and you pinky swear
But ten minutes go by and you're not there
Yeah, you lie

Now I know that you are a liar
Putting me through this personal trial by fire

You get me buying everything you sell
When it's broken you just say, 'Oh, well!'
You've got me crying inside 'cause you put me through hell
Yeah, you lie

I hear the words whispered in my ear
And I believe that you are sincere
But it's a matter of time until you disappear
Yeah, you lie

Now I know that you are a liar
Putting me through a personal trial by fire

Now I know that you are a liar
Putting me through a personal trial by fire

Nick Soma - Trial by Fire

You had no problem flaming others
Just to make it to the top
You'd ignite the fire of hatred
Even now you do not stop
Fooled some folks into believing
You could fix what's going wrong
But now the time has come to prove it
I don't think you're quite so strong

Welcome to a trial by fire
Soon your lies will be exposed
And if you can't stand the heat
I hope at least you'll make
For a decent roast

When they'll tire of your tirades
You'll be tied up and thrown under the tires
Your rhetoric skills won't help you
When you'll end up on a pyre

Welcome to a trial by fire
Soon you're gonna be deposed
'Cause you cannot bear the heat
In time you will become
Just a piece of toast

Confident of being what they want
And what they need
Soon you'll feel the scorching flame
That you yourself did feed
Your smug grin can't hide your lies
And you'll never be learning
Keep on lying in our eyes
With your pants already burning

Welcome to a trial by fire
Soon your lies will be exposed
And if you can't stand the heat
At least you're gonna be
A delicious roast

Trial by Fire (Lucky Witch & the Righteous Ghost)

I’m not your problem, I’m not your problem
It’s in your mind, it’s in your mind
This innocence lost, this innocence lost
Is both yours and mine; it’s both yours and mine

chorus:
Though you despise her, child of desire
This is my trial by fire
Though you despise her, child of desire
This is my trial by fire!

I was one of you, I am one of you
But I take the fall, I take the fall
Cursed is the female, cursed is the female
Under your scorn; under your scorn

Though you despise her, child of desire
This is my trial by fire
Though you despise her, child of desire
This is my trial by fire!

bridge:
Guilty by birth, guilty to death
Guilty by birth, guilty to death
Guilty by birth, guilty to death
Guilty by birth, guilty to death
Guilty by birth, guilty to death
Guilty by birth, guilty to death!

If I go to hell, you will as well
This is our trial by fire
If I go to hell, you will as well
This is our trial by fire!

Trial By Fire
-Owl Chemist

Now I howl at every moon I see. Between the haze of cloudy wine. You've never seen the last of me. My dreams pronounce you every time.
Oh how I 'taste you in my mouth at least. You're my devils one desire. It burns my chest incessantly. The smell of you is trial by fire.

The gates beneath the balcony. The shelter where we kissed the sky. The ever better half of me. Released my breath to the night.

(the synth is made in a fashion to conjure the image of sirens)

justice dies
when a martyr's born
the people don't have bullets and they're out of thorns
We might have a cross... if you are lucky

If there was a crime
We will never know
But you're going to reap whatever, whatever you have sowed
I guess you had it coming, maybe

Did it burn, did it burn?
When they recognized your turn?
When they found a witch to play their fantasy?

Did you hurt, did you cry?
When they fell for all of the lies?

Heroes fade
As the truth is lost
Send a search crew out to the permafrost
When did we become so cowardly?

It was all a game
'Til we lit the fuse
We were dancing with a train and thought that it would lose
Victims of our driveby vanity

TRIAL BY FIRE
DJRangerDen

You’re my kind of date--
you show up never better
...than late.

And there’s nothing to say.
The sirens showed up late at the funeral.

My trial by fire starts today.
Just tie me to my stake.

All dressed in black
for a panic attack of the ages.

You're put in the ground
and I think of the fish in the sea

and the vibe is icy...
this trial by fire for you and me.

the opposite of passion is apathy
(-faced each other and screamed!)
...My trial by fire starts today.

Trial By Fire
by Merisan

You won’t believe
You won’t believe
I’m so close to burning that I’m losing my mind
Hard to achieve
Hard to achieve
All the ways I’m guilty of my sins have combined

Calling holy rollers
Spare me backward lectures
I need salvation please
I want you on your knees

Fill me with desire
Drink it till we drown
Love is trial by fire
Burn us to the ground
x2

Mother save me
Mother save me
I wish I had listened just a little bit more
No guarantees
No guarantees
I deserve to walk across hot coals on the floor

Calling holy rollers
Spare me backward lectures
I need salvation please
I want you on your knees

Fill me with desire
Drink it till we drown
Love is trial by fire
Burn us to the ground
x2

Fill me with desire
Drink it till we drown
Love is trial by fire
Burn us to the ground
x2

Trial By Fire
by Berkeley Social Scene

Jumping through hoops
Keeps the joints limber
A chainsaw for the competition
Chopping them down like timber

Trial by Fire
We’ll be here a while
Warm up the amplifier
Trial by Fire
We’ll be here a while
We’ll be the sole survivor

A fire in the sky
Dominate or say goodbye
Miles ahead of the pack
Drowning them like a quart of Jack

Trial by Fire
We’ll be here a while
Warm up the amplifier
Trial by Fire
We’ll be here a while
We’ll be the sole survivor

Trial by Fire
We’ll be here a while
Warm up the amplifier
Trial by Fire
We’ll be here a while
We’ll be the sole survivor

Trial By Fire
by Boffo Yux Dudes
(There are several modified sirens in the mix, and the song is about Sirens as well)

I may be your captain, but I am still but a man
We are facing danger and I’ll do all that I can
So gather all around me and I will tell you all what I have planned

Grab the thickest ropes, boys, and tie me to the mast
Do not listen to my pleas until the danger’s past
If we cannot sail away there is not a chance left that we can last

Surrounded by the water but this is a trial by fire
I cannot sing so well and I will not become a lyre
So I must guide us home while I resist the thing that most I do desire

Grab the thickest ropes, boys, and tie me to the mast
Do not listen to my pleas until the danger’s past
If we cannot sail away there is not a chance left that we can last

Close your eyes and plug your ears, you must ignore my screams
Even though the sounds you hear will haunt you in your dreams
Or hopes will dash against the rocks; paradise is never what it seems

Trial By Fire
by Mandibles

Heart beating out of my chest
Like a bat stuck in hell
Keep going, don’t stop to rest
Or else this won’t end well
Sweat dripping down my neck
Nails bitten raw
Goddamn it all to heck
It’s the worst I ever saw

And the blood flows on
And tears soon dry
Act like nothing’s wrong
And no one’s gonna die

This is our trial by fire
The stakes couldn’t be higher
Lets go one more time
Everything’s on the line

Twisted metal painted red
Twisted in a heap
Twisted heartache filled with dread
This is why I never sleep
What am I waiting for?
This one is nothing new
I was built for this war
I know what I have to do

And the blood flows on...

This is our trial by fire…

You have given me your heart
Placed in in my hands
Beat by beat I will it start
But something tells me it can’t
You have given me your heart
Placed in in my hands
Beat by beat I will it start
Don’t you tell me it can’t

And your blood flows on
And my tears won’t dry
Just keep pumping on
You’re not gonna die
You’re not gonna die
I won’t let you die
Don’t you dare go dying on me

This is your trial by fire
The stakes couldn’t be higher
Keep on beating time after time
Kid, it’s your life on the line.

When the only escape is to dive through flame
Brave the pain
Nothing is left but your name
When the woman you hoped to wed
Now undead
Thirsting and screaming+

I … am alive … I survive … Trial by fire
I … am alive … I survive … Trial by fire
A-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-ah
Trial by fi-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-yah
Trial by fire

When all that you know has been burned away
Dreams betrayed
And only the ashes remain
When you’re wounded you can resign
Choose to die or
Fight for your life

CH

I don’t know what I’m hoping for but I still hope
I don’t know what I’m gonna do, but I will cope
Crawling and climbing through dark forests of uncertainty
Toward the bright lights of freedom

Trial By Fire, by Fisher & Diaz

Here is the basic construct of it all: we introduce a completely different angle?

We got a fire, but we’re never going to give you a trial
We got the fire, but we’re never going to give you the trial

Trial by fire
Trial by fire

Take all the time that you feel that you need
Nothing I mentioned can be guaranteed
We in an awful position
I wasn’t listening
I don’t believe what you say you believe
That is some foolishness
You’re usually hit and miss
Did you fall for a shooting star
One without a permanent scar
Nyah-nyah-nyah out there

And the peculiar thing is this my friends
The song we sang on that fateful night?
It didn’t actually sound anything like this song
This is just a trial by fire
Trial by fire

And this is the way that sets up the scene
And over again and that’s what I mean
When people are lying and lonely on time
I don’t have the patience others have had before me

We got the fire now
Who needs a trial if it’s too highbrow
I don’t have time that I’d like to waste
Seems like your frames are all out of place
Always close the cover before striking
Here come the visions, not to my liking
Sleep is the place where I am a viking

Trial by Fire -- Minty Handy

(First line by my daughter based on the title, rest of the lines by me based on her line)

Do something stupid like doing well
Someone will blame you only time will tell
Go be a hero and you'll burn in hell

You've got to get over
Got to get over

You need
You need a
Trial trial by fire fire (x2)

They see you standing and in a while
Misunderstanding by a country mile
The crowd will turn and tear you down with style

You've got to get over
Got to get over

You need
You need a
Trial trial by fire fire (x2)
