lyrics

Iron slug runner burning the concrete
Underneath shoes of blazing fury
Champion meets his eyes with a look of worry
Knows his time is short upon the pedestal of glory

Wait until his mind is awake
Poison in the glass of his comrade
Horde decimates the enemy
Opportunity appears before him
Rearrange the matter into a liquid state
Store him in his pouch - a memory of suffering
Must convince the warlords their stake is floundered
Mustn't compromise the whole

Step into the ring and size up your adversary
Hope is lost for a peaceful outcome
It all comes down to this
Time to show them how we hold
I pull a gun upon my enemy
Referee shouts and police rush the stage
Ex-military they're no match for me
I'm a living weapon

Blow his head off then reload another round
Six shooter is my friend
The match bell rings I'm let out of class
Shooting up all my classmates
They shot needles in their arms at recess
I saw them even though I was hid
Bring holy vengeance upon the Earth
I'm a one man army
I'm the hand that feeds the hungry people
Letting them die is a joy
Never am caught the world is mine alone
Bloody bullets turn me into a God

Born
Without
Parents

Born
Without
Sight

People hate us
Hate our songs
We coudn't give a shit

Kill
their
souls

Born
without
sight

We
Kill
You

Moshing in the pit of a metal show
Poor audience don't know what hit them
Loaded bullet fist from the film by Tarantino
Made a hole in their heads

Iron slug runner burning the concrete
Underneath shoes of blazing fury
Champion meets his eyes with a look of worry
Knows his time is short upon the pedestal of glory
