"The Warrior" as written by Christopher Charles Lloyd, Ray Wylie Hubbard and Robert Lynn Livingston....
You run, run, runaway it's your
Heart that you betray
Feeding on your hungry eyes
I bet you're not so civilized
Isn't love primitive a wild gift
You wanna give
Break out of captivity
And follow me stereo jungle child
Love is the kill your heart's still wild

Shootin' at the walls of heartache
Bang, bang, I am the warrior
Yes I am the warrior
And heart to heart you win
If you survive the warrior, the warrior

You talk, talk, talk to me
Your eyes touch me physically
Stay with me, we'll take the night
As passion takes another bite


Oh, who's the hunter
Who's the game
I feel the beat call your name
I'll hold you close in victory
I don't wanna tame your animal style
You won't be caged
From the call of the wild

    General Comment"The Warrior" is a cool song.
    (You guys can figure this stuff out. Just watch the video scenes... ...read the lyrics carefully...'voila' you understand it.)

    The song is about a tempestuous (rocky) love affair. Patty is the 'Warrior' -- she'll fight for the man she loves....... though he likes to play the field...is angry...abusive...arrogant... and selfish.

    In the open seen of the video we see Patty Smythe getting "cut" by her lover
    "Feeding on your hungry eyes..." (he likes to play the field; arrogant, lusty, unfaithful).

    "And follow me stereo jungle child" (Maybe.... follow my lead....... "stereo jungle child"..... you duplicitous [duplicity- deceitfulness in speech or conduct; speaking or acting in Two [stereo...] different ways to different people concerning the same matter; double-dealing...].... and "jungle" is wild......."child" is. childish fool. He's foolish for valuing short-term, unfulfilling lust -- for Long-term, Very Fulfilling love.]

    She's saying he can ultimately "Win" if he receives/accepts her love for him -- rather than his [poo-poo but] lusty liasons.

    My OpinionThis is a very enjoyable song. I just wish the lyrics were better. "Your eyes touch my physically"?? That's pretty creepy. When I sing along, I often have to change that line to something less weird, such as "your eyes move me emotionally."
