Sometimes, inspiration can be found in the oddest of spots. The new song is a shining example of that. Poison is far from a favorite of mine, though I will admit that where sappy rock ballads are concerned, they know what they are doing. And this song was used on our tri club's "year in review" video.
Just consider the first lines:
Hearts of fire
Streets of stone
Saddle iron horses of chrome
Or the last:
Of all the truths and lies
And stories of riders in the sky
They say only the bravest try
Where eagles and angels dare to fly
And for those who raced IM Wisconsin 2006:
Two old friends
Of battle scars and lonely bars
And nights the rain wouldn't end
Perhaps there's room for a bit of poison in the pursuit of iron.
