"Rainbow Warrior" as written by and Heri Joensen....
From the fields of concrete slabs, towers of Stone
'Cross an ocean before his bow
Came the haggard Warrior all clad in rust of
The Rainbow to tell us how

Our ways unchanged for centuries do dismay
Concrete hearts
Wake emotions perfect for his confidence tricks
And though we may be human we are still animals
Weakling of the food chain, the only way
That I see is to

Curse the weak link, What's out
Come your down fall, Lights out
May your ship sink, Rainbow Warrior floats
No more, there are no Lights on
That obtrusive creep all, What's on

By the fields of good and green, mountains of
Home, in an ocean beneath the sun
Stood the haggard Warrior, now his crusade,
Fame and fortune it had begun

So holier than thou art, all marine mammals friend
Change your evil ways now or with terror I strike
Why can't you do like we do, pay your way
'Round the blood
When it's on the table you won't know
Whence it came, I say

Curse the weak link, What's out
Come your down fall, Lights out
May your ship sink, Rainbow Warrior floats
No more, there are no Lights on
That obtrusive creep all, What's on

To the fields of concrete slabs, towers of
Stone. 'cross an ocean behind his stern
Went the haggard Warrior all clad in rust of
The Rainbow, when will they learn
That nature is against them, with that all
Stands and falls
Weakling of the food chain, the only way
That I see is to

Curse the weak link, What's out
Come your down fall, Lights out
May your ship sink, Rainbow Warrior floats
No more, there are no Lights on
That obtrusive creep all, What's on

    General CommentIm pretty sure this song has something to do with the Greenpeace ship of the same name, although i haven't looked into it enough to make a complete connection

    Song FactThe song is about the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society. The haggard Warrior refers to Paul Watson their leader. The front man for TYR admitted the mistake of referencing Rainbow Warrior as one of Watson's Ships. It is a Greenpeace ship and Watson was kicked out of Greenpeace for being to radical. That's why he created his own group. It was explained in a debate between Paul Watson and the front man of TYR when "Whale Wars Viking Shores" aired on Animal Planet.
