You take a mortal man,
And put him in control
Watch him become a god
Watch peoples heads a’roll

Just like the Pied Piper
Led rats through the streets
We dance like marionettes
Swaying to the Symphony …
Of Destruction

Acting like a robot
Its metal brain corrodes
You try to take its pulse
Before the head explodes

[Solo – Marty]

The earth starts to rumble
World powers fall
A’warring for the heavens
A peaceful man stands tall
