"Killing Machine" as written by and Glenn Raymond Tipton....
I never give true answers, I never tell no lies
I never walk a straight line, so never get surprised
I don't ask no favors, so don't get abused
I learned to win when I was young
So I'm never ever going to lose

They pay me the money and I do the job
I got a contract on you
I got a contract, on you

I never ask no questions, I never speak my mind
I always found that silence helps to keep me and my kind alive
I take care of business, it takes care of me
I look after myself and do it well
Because somebody's always looking for me

They pay me the money and I do the job
I got a contract on you
I got a contract, on you

What manner of man am I?
A gun, lump sum and then I move on
What manner of man are you?
Stab a friend's back to jump a queue
I do what I do because I can't do nothing better
You do what you do, just defending yourself
Because you got nothing better to do
I got no face, no name, I'm just a killing machine
I cut the population down, if you know what I mean
I never stop in one place, I move about the cities
Got expensive tastes, but I hasten to add that
I'm the best that there is

They pay me the money and I do the job
I got a contract on you
I got a contract, on you

I got a contract on you
I got a contract on you

    General CommentThis is really obvious. It's about a hitman, assassin, whatever you wanna call it. He's a "killing machine" in that he kills without remorse. It's his job, and he's "the best that there is". This is my favorite song on the Hell Bent album. It's awesome!

    General CommentThe European title of the Hell Bent for Leather album is, in fact, Killing Machine.

    General CommentThis song is soooo badass. I'm glad that I found a version of Hell Bent For Leather that was titled after this track instead :D difficult to find I'd say (except exactly the same, despite the title being different.) So I pretty much found the European version of the album.
