Two blinded in Detroit
Something must be done
Jaws dropping at ringside
In the blood tide
When the fireball hits

Down Indiana way
Make ’em check their guns
Real tears when it’s over
Smell the sulfur
When the dark vault splits

Lord of the hidden pocket knife
Tawdry dreams all come to life
Save yourselves
Save this town
Save everything not nailed down

War in Ontario
Dead before the bell
Crushed hopes of the young breed
All the best bleed
All the proud boys break

Who’ll stand before the flood
Who will mop up all the blood
Who, alone

Skin, bone, steel, stone
swim or drown
Save this town
Save everything not nailed down

    General CommentSeems to be loosely based on the mythos and career of The Sheik. He was famous for throwing fireballs into the faces of his opponents, his main territories were Detroit and Toronto, he was an innovator in what became known as hardcore wrestling, etc.
