Lyrics
Fire!
Take your first shot at me but you better make it good
Because if you miss than I get to shoot at you
And if it is impossible to make my bullet meet
Than I’ll be in trouble because you’re shooting back at me
This will go on and on until one of us dies
All over something we thought were harmless lies
I don’t want no bloodshed but I have to do what I have to do
Even if it’s blue flowers and beige towers on the shore

Yes, we’ve met before, my friend, on the plains of Evermore
In the third century or was it maybe the fourth?
Nothing is clear no more except for one thing
Our opinions were different over who should be king
This has gone on and on through space and time
Our business unfinished, we must now make our climb
To the top of the summit hill, just me and you
We’ll fight to the finish over who gets
Blue flowers and beige towers at his door

It is really a shame, something always has to ruin something
He we are with our two super-heroes climbing up on the summit hill
And ready for battle, and some asshole has to come and interrupt it
I don’t think, I say I don’t don’t don’t don’t don’t think
That they should take away our only shot
At blue flowers and beige towers, do you?

Analysis: One of my favorite songs of the 80’s era. It moves at a frantic pace with cool sound scapes and adventurous lyrics. Unfortunately, some of the song was lost due to tape issues (which are also present during the guitar solos), so the entire thing was shortened by about a minute and a half. Despite these problems, it is the best “sounding” song of the era, especially when it comes to guitars and drums.
