Over the Wall
Testament Lyrics


I've been a prisoner
Trapped in by fear
Ordered for the rest of my life
Condemned in a jail cell
Ain't seen life in years
Escape is the only way out

Restart my life
Or self destruction
To climb this wall
Of dark construction
Holding the quest for freedom
That beckons me

My sanity is all but gone
My patience is growing very weak
I need to get a hold of myself
I stare at the wall
For the right time has come
Escape must occur on this night

Stand in my way
And I'll run you straight through
There's no one to stop me now
For I'm on the loose
And I'm ready to start
Torture and hell an this town

Over the wall!

The search will not stop
And hounds will not rest
Till I am back in my cell
For if I am caught,I'll try it again
Over the wall I will go, I will go

Over the wall I will go, I will go!!!

Restart my life

Testament - Over The Wall - Lyrics

I've been a prisoner
Trapped in by fear
Ordered for the rest of my life
Condemned in a jail cell
Ain't seen life in years
Escape is the only way out

Restart my life
Or self destruction
To climb this wall
Of dark construction
Holding the quest for freedom
That beckons me

My sanity is all but gone
My patience is growing very weak
I need to get a hold of myself
I stare at the wall
For the right time has come
Escape must occur on this night

Stand in my way
And I'll run you straight through
There's no one to stop me now
For I'm on the loose
And I'm ready to start
Torture and hell an this town

OVER THE WALL !!!!!!!!

The search will not stop
And hounds will not rest
Till I am back in my cell
For if I am caught,I'll try it again
Over the wall I will go,I will go

I've been a "Metal" fan since I was a little kid listening to my brother's Deep Purple albums back in the early 1970s. There is just something about "thrash" from about 1984 - 1990 that cannot be replicated. One of the greatest eras in music ever.

Same here. I grew up on my older brothers Black Sabbath and Motörhead albums in the 70’s. Then Iron Maiden and Venom. And being from SF I was primed for thrash when it came out. The Stone SF and the RecordVault are great memories for me. Thrash was my gateway drug for death metal and ultimately black metal.

Christopher Klingel

You're right that was a great era for thrash metal and Deep Purple was cool too but Testament is my absolute favorite metal band of all(besides Black Sabbath).
