Lyrics
In extreme town, it can break down
Anyone who gives it half a chance
It's a no man's land

Where the heart beats, cold as concrete
Come to sell their souls anyway they can
Try to understand

For everyone who makes it
There's a million who get left behind
The only way to make it out alive
Is to never give an inch

When you're living your life under fire
Hold on, never give an inch
Never lose sight of your one desire
You're gone, never give an inch

Take it straight to the end
And even if it hurts, even if you bleed
Even if you're down on your knees
Never give an inch

Fast walkers, slick talkers
These are people, people talk about
The spotlight goes out

Between the users and the losers
There's never any room for any doubt
You're in or you're out

For every one that makes it
There's a million who get left behind
The only way to make it out alive
Is to never give an inch

When you're living your life under fire
Hold on, never give an inch
Never lose sight of your one desire
You're gone, never give an inch

Take it straight to the end
Even if it hurts, even if you bleed
Even if you're down on your knees
Never give an inch

Some go for desperate measures
They're under the gun
I go for grace under pressure
Standing my ground, whenever it comes

For everyone who makes it
There's a million who get left behind
The only way to make it out alive
Is to never give an inch

When you're living your life under fire
Hold on, never give an inch
Never lose sight of your one desire
You're gone, never give an inch

Take it straight to the end
Even if it hurts, even if you bleed
Even if you're down on your knees
Never give an inch

Never give an inch
Never give an inch
