"Triggerman" as written by Bob Marlette and Alice Cooper....
I ain't got a name, I don't gotta face
No fingerprints or DNA
I ain't got no eyes, I don't got a tongue
But I know what's going on, I'm deaf and dumb

I'm pure non-entity
Don't even look for me
I watch you when you sleep

I am the triggerman
I am the underhand
I'll keep you on your knees
I am the brain police
I am the triggerman
I am the underhand
I'm full of dirty tricks
I'm twice as smart and certainly twice as sick

I am always out of sight, ashadow in the mist
I don't need no alibi, 'cause I don't exist

I'm pure non-entity
Don't even look for me
I watch you when you sleep

I am the triggerman
I am the underhand
I'll keep you on your knees
I am the brain police
I am the triggerman
I am the underhand
I'm full of dirty tricks
I'm twice as smart and certainly twice as sick

He's sick, he's sick, he's really, really sick
He's sick, he's sick, he's really, really sick
He's really really sick, he's sick, he's sick
He's really really sick

I'm pure non-entity
Don't even look for me
I watch you when you sleep

I am the triggerman
I am the underhand
I'll keep you on your knees
I am the brain police
I am the triggerman
I am the underhand
I'm full of dirty tricks
I'm twice as smart and certainly twice as sick

He's sick, he's sick, he's really, really sick
He's sick, he's sick, he's really, really sick
He's sick, he's sick, he's really, really sick
He's sick, he's really, really sick

He's sick

    General CommentTo me, this song reminds of Big Brother from George Orswell's novel 1984. Like the Big Brother, the narrator of the song is watching everyone all the time, but isn't actually an entity. He even knows what people think, like the Big Brother and the phrase "brain police" was first used in the novel, I believe. It also fits with the whole theme of the album, as Dragontown is this absolutely horrid place and it makes sense if there's some sort of Big Brother-like thing to keep everyone oppressed and miserable.
