"Defender" as written by and Joey Demaio....
When you are old enough to read this words
Their meaning will unfold
These words all that's left
And though we've never meet, my only son
I hope you know
That I would have been there to watch you grow
But my call was heard and I did go
Now your mission lies ahead of you
As it did mine so long ago
To help the helpless ones who all look up to you
And to defend them to the end

Defender
Ride like the wind
Fight proud, my son
You're the defender
God has sent

Father,father,father
I look up to you and heed thy call
This letter ends my search
I'll live your dream now passed on to me
And I now wait to shake the hand of fate
Like the dusk awaiting dawn

So wizards cast your spell
With no heart to do me well
So it's written,it shall be

Defender
Ride like the wind
Fight proud, my son
You're the defender
God has sent

    General CommentThis is doubtlessly one of Manowar's greatest songs. Orson Welles' voice fits it perfectly.

    General CommentHe's the Defender of the Elect
    He's always and only perfect
    He's the Truth that sets men free
    He's the second of the Trinity
    He's stands atop the heap
    Standing on all other gods beneath
    God of gods, King of kings
    Left death without it's sting
    Never used a Nomadian's knife
    But a sword He used, thy Word of life
    As a Defender yes He was sent
    And one day He'll be back again
    The blind will ask who is this pariah?
    The child of God shouts "Jesus" Messiah!"

    I don't think this song is about Jesus, but He's is the only One able to surmount the task as Defender.
