Where were you when it happened Where could you be found Were you at the front of the stage Or in the underground From SF out to Old Bridge New York back to LA The world of metal changed forever Back in the day Well that was back in the day And if you weren't there It doesn't matter anyway Because you wouldn't understand Live to die and die to play Every day and place Leave a path of metal Across the world from stage to stage Well that was back in the day And if you weren't there It doesn't matter anyway Because you wouldn't understand In denim and leather We were all part of one force Knocked rock and roll on its ass And put metal on the course Higher! Back in the day! You weren't there! It doesn't matter, Because you wouldn't understand. This is our way of life A life that was born free To follow orders how to live Was never meant to be Peals of thunder, sheets of lightning The power hits the stage The music was exciting The mania raged We all had the fever Our ears started to ring Feeding this wildfire Consuming everything Metals king back then And still to this day Others imitate or challenge But it never goes away
