"Warrior" as written by David Draiman, Dan Donegan and Mike Wengren....
I am not an instrument of violence
I am a vessel of invincibility
I cannot, leave this undecided
Stepping down to battle another day
Remember me, for all time this
Determination is a vital part of me
Surrender, now or be counted
With the endless masses that I will defeat

Come on, bring it, you don't see it
I don't believe it
Broken down, till your hope has died
Beat down, till the victory is mine
Stand up and show me some pride
And now, are you ready?

I'm one with the warrior inside
My dominance can't be denied
Your entire world will turn
Into a battlefield tonight
As I look upon you, through
The warrior's eyes now
I can see the fear that will
Ensure my victory this time

I can't be told the compromises
From every toppled body lying at my feet
They know for minimal reminder
They will speak my name for eternity
I have no need of any guidance
I am a weapon powerful beyond belief
Seen through the warrior's eyes
I never need to question how to defeat you
Come on, bring it, you don't see it
I don't believe it
Broken down, till your hope has died
Beat down till the victory is mine
Stand up and show me some pride
And now, are you ready?

I'm one with the warrior inside
My dominance can't be denied
Your entire world will turn
Into a battlefield tonight
As I look upon you, through
The warrior's eyes now
I can see the fear that will
Ensure my victory this time

You can't hide now
I am the warrior
So decide now
How they'll remember you
Do not hide now
Act like a warrior
Show your pride now
Solidify your place in time

I'm one with the warrior inside
My dominance can't be denied
Your entire world will turn
Into a battlefield tonight
As I look upon you through
The warrior's eyes now
I can see the fear that will
Ensure my victory this time

I'm one with the warrior inside
The evidence can't be denied
The entire world will stare
Into this battlefield tonight
As I stand before you with
The warrior's heart now
I can feel the strength that will
Ensure my victory this time

    General CommentSolid song, a little disappointed with the lyrics:

    "Come on bring it
    Don't sing it
    Better believe it"

    Lyrics just seem really predictable at that point. Other then that, catchy chorus and one of the few better songs on the CD.

    General CommentShit talking, falsifiction and false promising. Defense against all evil in the world and conquering our own demons. Dealing with holding the warrior inside of yourself through struggle. Similar to The Animal.

    General Commentyou got the lyrics wrong it's "I am NOW an instrument of violence" not "I am not an instrument of violence" that just doesn't make sense.

    Song Meaningthis post is to all songs in the album Asylum....

    all the lyrics in Asylum, even Draiman said so are metaphors to the holocaust... asylum = ghetto, never again (well duh), another way to die = a metaphor that we kill each other in many ways, the infection = the nazis (the infection must die), warrior = that we are now strong and nothing such as that can happen again to us (the jews), crucified = the scientific torture a nazi (Dr. Mangle) did, my child = it talks about Korczak that attempted to save all the orphan children, innocence = that humanity has left the innocent 'phase', the animal = the anger and pain we still hold onto can unfold itself quickly if you attempt to redo the nazi mistake, serpentine = we (the jews) thought everything was good and then suddenly the holocaust started, sacrifice = showing the other side of our mind thats says that we want a sacrifice from to world to show the sorriness and to promise nothing as such will ever happen...

    yes im a jew that lives in Israel... and that was proof of the metaphors.. its all about never again and about the asylum...
