Fire In The Hole
Lyrics
You're watchin' too much TV and you thinkin' life's a bore
You desperate for excitement and you always wantin' more
What d'ya think you'll do when trouble's knocking on your door?
Run like hell and hit the ground there's fire in the hole

So you think you'll see some action, get some danger, give yourself an ego boost
Will you still be countin' eggs when all your chickens are a-comin' home to roost?

You spent your money gamblin' and your mortgage payment's due
Your boss is on the warpath and he blames it all on you
Your wife's found out about your girl though you deny it's true
Run like hell and hit the ground there's fire in the hole

So you thought you'd see some action, get some danger, give yourself an ego boost
Will you still be countin' eggs when all your chickens are a-comin' home to roost?

It's a tricky situation and it's one you can't control
Your temper's like a timebomb gettin' ready to explode
Your anger needs controlin' or it's gonna take its toll
Run like hell and hit the ground there's fire in the hole

So now you've reached the flashpoint and the enemy's a- comin' for the kill
All the things you done you know you shouldn't was it worth it for the thrill?

You've done invited trouble and that trouble's drawing near
So stand up like the man you think your are and beat your fear
You'll have to take what's comin' when the reckoning is here
Man up like a soldier, boy, there's fire in the hole

Come on boy and dig the noise there's fire in the hole!
