"Warriors" as written by William Scott Gorham and Philip Parris Lynott....
I am the warrior
I serve the death machine
Losers or conquerors
All flash past on my silver screen

Death is no easy answer
For those who wish to know
Ask those who have been before you
What fate the future holds

It ain't pretty

I am a messenger
The message here, you must know
I am the warrior
I deliver the fatal blow

So fate will have to wait
Till time can heal the scar
My heart is ruled by Venus
And my head by Mars

    General CommentThe album Jailbreak has a fantasy theme somewhat inspired by the comic books and other popular culture at the time. In The Warrior, we get the image of a futuristic soldier (silver sreen) and professional killer, possibly killing for the sake of killing-- or perhaps he's a space mercenary?

    The bit at the end about his head and heart is hard to reconcile with this theory. Perhaps he has been wounded by a lover (emotionally) and is killing and causing mass destruction until he gets over being dumped or cheated on.

    Anyway, this song has one of the best drum solos ever. Mr. Brian Downey has influenced my style a lot, and this song seems written almost exclusively to showcase his talent. How many songs have drum solos these days?

    General CommentNo, HDH is right. Lynott himself said this song was written about guys like Hendrix and Morrison.
