"Starbreaker" as written by and Glenn Raymond/halford Tipton....
Look out, here's Starbreaker
Cruisin' into town
Set his mind to stealin'
Every little heart around
Step out on the sidewalks
If you're feeling game
He comes but once a lifetime
Never seen again

Starbreaker
Glides in from the sky
Starbreaker
Takes you up so high

Paradise is waiting
For the chosen few
Let's hope maybe this time
He picks me and you
Star voyage to a new world
Light-year miles away
Cross your fingers, here he is,
Take us now this day

Starbreaker
Glides in from the sky
Starbreaker
Takes you up so high

Starbreaker, take my hand
Starbreaker, understand
Starbreaker, you're the one
Starbreaker, lead us on, and on

Look out, here's Starbreaker
Cruisin' into town
Set his mind to stealin'
Every little heart around
Step out on the sidewalks
If you're feeling game
He comes but once a lifetime
Never ever seen again

Starbreaker
Glides in from the sky
Starbreaker
Takes you up so high

    General CommentArch Enemy's version is definitely waaay harder!

    I think starbreaker is death. "comes but once in a lifetime"

    "paradise is waiting" may be referencing heaven, or an afterlife of some sort.

    just a thought.

    General CommentThis song is actually, as the band has said, about a guy who goes around to different planets having sex with women. What can I say? The majority of Judas Priest's lyrics are really, really dumb. Luckily for them their so damn good.

    General CommentWell, it can also be a reference to the DC comics villain 'Starbreaker', who is an ancient cosmic vampire who feeds from energy.

    General CommentWhen I was a kid I used to think that this was the second coming of Christ wrapped up in sci-fi imagery.

    General CommentThis was pretty heavy for 1977. Starbreaker sounds like a drug dealer to me.
