It took 10 years to get there
20 more to come back to your war
And when I fired up my only flare
You instructed your battalions to ignore

It was the longest game of chicken
Who would be the first to blink first
Well thank God I had a bucket to get sick in
'Cause your rejection couldn't make me feel worse

From the hills I saw you in your courtyard
Crazed from merry drink
At the nights here give me too much time to think
Think about the days

You hitched your horse to a rusty wagon
I hitched my wagon to a dead horse
Iron dragon, won't you stay as a matter of course?
Iron dragon, won't you stay until the end of the wars?

If I could only find a star to put my wish in
I'd be the main attraction at your do
I remember the words of your magician
You gotta melt down 50 jokers to make a fool

From here I see you fortifying
For a cold December
And it hits me now that you might not remember
Remember the time

You hitched your horse to a rusty wagon
I hitched my wagon to a dead horse
Iron dragon, won't you stay as a matter of course?
Iron dragon, won't you stay 'til the end of the wars?

And will this be recorded
Will it be a big display in a museum
Will my loyalty be rewarded
Or will they just say "it must have sucked to be him"

Whoever finds my scribbles, well I hope you read to the end
Cause at the end I'll reunite with my old friend

You hitched your horse to a rusty wagon
I hitched my wagon to a dead horse
Iron dragon, won't you stay as a matter of course?
Iron dragon, won't you stay 'til the end of the wars?

Save the world, save the world
I'm the new Michael Jackson
Save the world, save the world, save the world

Save the world, save the world
I'm the new Michael Jackson
Save the world, save the world, save the world

    General CommentI think it's about two artists of some sort (musician, actor, etc) trying to make it big. I think the narrators friend is semi-successful whereas the narrator is good at a dead art (rusty wagon compared to a dead horse).

    Don't have a clue what Iron Dragon means. The song functions through kind of medieval imagery, so maybe it's intended to mean the friend becomes powerful in their artistic arena. But that's an absolute guess.
