"Thunderhead" as written by Steve Edward Duren and Christopher J. Holmes....
Oh Thunderhead, you're a man with a problem
Ahh - old habits too hard to break
And soon you'll be dead from that poison that you're on
Oh - the venom that's worse that the snakes

And I say, hey, hey, hey
Oh no, hey-hey-hey
Oh no, hey-hey-hey: white thunder
Needles and pins a dead man you're in
So deep you'll never climb out
Hey-hey-hey
Oh no, hey-hey-hey
Oh no, hey-hey-hey white thunder
A gun to your head, the trigger you're dead
It's quicker and there ain't no doubt

Oh thunderhead, tie it off you're in heaven'
Oh you'll drown in the Heroin flood
And die in your bed and sweat and detox
You are leaving this world
Oh your epitaph's written in blood
And I said

Hey-hey-hey
Oh no, hey-hey-hey
Oh no, hey-hey-hey - white thunder
Needles and pins
A dead man you're in so deep you'll never climb out
Hey-hey-hey
Oh no, hey-hey-hey
Oh no, hey-hey-hey - white thunder
A gun to your head, the trigger you're dead
It's quicker and there ain't no doubt

Killer - ya scream and ya bleed
Thriller - you spread you disease
Watch out, watch out

Thunderhead - yes I am your master
Will you steal for me - yes
Will you ruin yourself and give everything unto me - yes
Will you lie, cheat, deceive, dishonor everything
And even kill thy brother for me, yes - yes
Will you worship only me as your true master. Yes
Thunderhead, will you die for me, yes master

Hey-hey-hey
Oh no, hey-hey-hey
Oh no, hey-hey-hey white thunder
Needles and pins
A dead man you're in
So deep you'll never climb out
Hey-hey-hey
Oh no, hey-hey-hey
Oh no, hey-hey-hey white thunder
A gun to your head
The trigger you're dead
It's quicker and there ain't no doubt, no no

    General CommentClearly, this song is about heroin addiction; or rather, a man named Thunderhead who's a heroin addict.

    General CommentYep. As the poster above said, it's about heroin addiction. This album, "The Headless Children", was an album about different social situations. It was totally different than the first three albums, which were all just songs without any real meaning. This is one of the best W.A.S.P. albums ever! Blackie really made a masterpiece here!
