Rise up Son of Man
New York cities' Son of Sam
With a gun in hand
He reaps the women of our land
Blood and family darkness death depravity
Keep out of his way
Live to lie another day
He picked up a .44 calibur gun
To shoot her down, down
He was told to kill
Dogs and Demons gave him will
Spirit roaming night
Sullen vampire hating light
Nobody wants him
He just stares at the world
Planning his vengance
That he will soon unfurl
Now the time is here
For Son of Sam to spread fear
Father, holy ghost, wicked son who kills the most
Nobody wants him
They just turn their heads
Nobody helps him
Now he has his revenge
Down, down, down...
Gunshots full of lead
Fill his victims full of dread
Running as fast as they can
Son of Sam kills again!
Down, down, down...
Down, down, down...

    General CommentAwesome cover/re-make. It's called 'Son of Man'.
    It is a re-make of Black Sabbath's Iron Man with the lyrics matched and re-written about David Berkowitz, the 'Son of Sam' killer in the late seventies. Chilling if you really listen to it.
