Hardcore rules here are two
Hate Ronnie Reagan no matter what he do
Question authority I’d really like to know
Who got the authority to make those rules

Question the authority that says question authority
Gonna hafta see for yourself

Left right wing bands, bands without a stand
It is a fad or is it a command
We’re no role models cos as for us
Our Role Model died for us on the Cross

We looked all over and when it was done
The Truth we thought was a lie was the truest One
The Cross Resurrection the Forgiveness of sins
And the Spirit inside adds up to more than a whim

Its the devil’s world so there’s no surprise
Just mention Jesus no comfort inside
Try to hide it by ridiculing Him
Shouldn’t that be telling everybody something

Gonna run to my ride into West Germany
Cause I’m one step ahead of the KGB
It’s cold but I’m warm the Lord of my strength
He comforts my soul & shortens the length
Even iron curtains can be broken thru
& I’ll run Bibles thru them to old Moscow
Let the Word hit Leningrad & the Ukraine
In underground services away from Lenin pain
Run hard don’t stop move fast don’t walk
Hard snow you’re there you’re there
You’re there you’re there hard snow
I don’t care if I’m caught I’ll slowly die
But just thinking bout my next running ride
I’m just a guy who liked to flirt with death
Then I cut it too short and I found life
Now I just give it to those that had given it up
That the Blood of Jesus might cover up their strife
