"Greenface" as written by and Jon Schaffer....
A warrior down to the depths of my soul
I terrorize evil that's out of control
On land, in the air, at sea
On danger I feed

My warpaint, the last thing my enemies see
Their teeth and their ears are trophies for me
On land, in the air, at sea
I'll be where the metal meets the meat
Green face
Green face

Lagoons deep in jungles are home for me
The desert nor mountains, they can't hide from me
On land, in the air, at sea
I'll be where the metal meets the meat
Green face
Green face

    General CommentThis song is dedicated to the US Special Forces over in Middle East. In Particular the Navy Seals and Green Berets, etc.

    Schaffer said it at the show. :x

    General CommentYes. Actually, Schaffer wrote this about a friend of his in Iraq, who's in the army. That friend lost his leg there, so this song is a dedication to him. Bless you Schaffer!

    General CommentI believe the song is about US Soldier in Vietnam. The Line "Their Teeth And Their Ears Are Trophies For Me" is a possible refrence to the way American Soldiers would remove these parts off enemy soldiers and keep them as a trophy. Killer song
