A thousand years I've roamed the plains
And waved the hand of doom
I've seen the tears that fall
Like rain from the waste and all that ruin
A shadow's cast from me to you
A time to claim
All that's mine, my wrath is blind
The balance is where you hang

I'm the WidowMaker
I'm the Lord of the Wings
I'm the WidowMaker

The cries of sadness never heard
Fall deaf upon my ears
The stench of madness, raging wars
I've seen a million years
The smell of sorrow fills the fields
And lingers in the sky
The littered ground will swallow down
The souls that fill my eyes

I'm the WidowMaker
I'm the Lord of the Wings
I'm the WidowMaker

I'm the WidowMaker
I'm the Lord of the Wings
I'm the WidowMaker

I'm the WidowMaker
I'm the Lord of the Wings
I'm the WidowMaker

    General CommentOne of only two worthwhile songs on W.A.S.P.'s 2nd LP (the other being Wild Child). The lyrics make me think of a timeless Reaper-like figure, roaming the open spaces harvesting souls as they die. I don't see it as having any deeper meaning, but I'm open to being convinced otherwise. It's about as deep as W.A.S.P. got until Blackie realized he was in a rut and drastically changed direction on Headless Children.

    It's a cool tune, dark and foreboding unlike the overt, shallow decadence that dominates the majority of their early-career output.
