He spent his life
A silent sentinel
For all to fear
He walks, he talks, he thinks, he feels
But no one dare go near
He takes in all he sees
Nothing escapes his gaze
And when he strikes
He strikes for right
A glorious sight

Destroyer, destroyer, destroyer
He's in town

He came to be
From a grand mistake
A mystical charade
Created to decide the good
And bring repercussive aid
As awareness filled his fame
He examined those who leered
Then he cleaved the air
With his fiery stare
Rend all those there


A day will come
You'll be drawn into
The center of your town
And come upon a mass of steel
That cracks the very ground
Prepare to meet your judge
Don't think to run away
Just pray your face
Holds no disgrace
For the deadly ace

    General CommentAn awesome song often overlooked by people who know We're Not Gonna Take It and I Wanna Rock. I think the Under The Blade album is better than Stay Hungry. And I think of this song as the same as Black Sabbath's Iron Man - and they're both great songs.
