Like wild fire
Comes roaring
Mad whirlwind
Burning the road

Black thunder
White lightning
Speed demons cry
The Hell Patrol

Night riders
Death dealers
Storm bringers
Tear up the ground

Fist flying
Eyes blazing
They're glory bound
The Hell Patrol

Brutalize you
Neutralize you
Gonna go for your throat as you choke
Then they'll vaporapeize you

Terrorize you
Pulverize you
Gonna cut to the bone as you groan
And they'll paratamize you

Crome Masters
Steel Warriors
Soul Stealers
Ripping out hearts
They're Devil Dogs
The Hell Patrol

    My InterpretationSeems to be the truth that Halford himself stated the Hell Patrol is all about USAF tactical fighter pilots during the first Iraqi war. The lyrics is quite a glorifiyng example of the horror that the attacking airplanes could create among the eyewitnesses on the ground.
    But comparing the time of the war and the song's release, it may seem that Halford had just wanted the song would be connected to USAF or the other "Devil Dogs" (a general US Marines nickname).
    Funny enough, due to the notable gap between Judas Priest and military affairs, opposite to the other British metal kings, the Iron Maiden.

    General CommentThis song is about being touring and being on the road. The "they" in question are the band and crew. "Fist flying, eyes blazing. They're glory bound." They are comparing themselves to warriors. The song follows the most common theme in Judas Priest. Bringing the metal to the masses. That's what Hell Patrol is all about.

    General CommentWow, these lyrics seem pretty clear to me. These are the guys and girls who protect us. They see war and violence for our defense (hell-riders).

    I see this as a great tribute to our men and women in Iraq, Vietnam, etc. These are very brave people "riding hell" for us.
