"Demonizer" as written by and Glenn Raymond/downing Tipton....
Born of the sun
Crashed to the earth
Tormented reviled
Engorged hate from birth
Hellion's the steed
Blood's on the wing
Claws set to slice
Vengeance he'll bring

Cremating the land
In seek and destroy
Apocalypse slays
Napalm he'll deploy
The beast of a god
Regaled of his race
Prepare to onslaught
And bare face to face
Across the divide
The thresholds in flames
The Painkiller rises again

The scream of the demon
There's evil about
They've come to posses us
Out, demons out

Blade of the wheel
Cuts deep in the bone
It's Gideon's quest
To take Satan's throne

The critical mass
And power that they wield
Exterminates all
When vermin rebel
A maelstrom begins to disintegrate
And pulverize all in it's wake

Demonizer
Out, out, out, demons out

    My InterpretationGreat vocal performance by Halford on this one.

    For me, this sounds like a second account of the events of "Painkiller", letting us know exactly what it is that the Painkiller came to save humanity from and lending some more imagery to the event.

    I like the Gideon reference better than using the second coming of Jesus, as Gideon was a more violent figure in Christian mythology than Christ, and as such is better suited to the subject matter at hand. According to Wikipedia (the source of all wisdom), Gideon translates to "Destroyer" or "Mighty warrior," which would suit a figure riding a monstrous bike with sawblade wheels.
