Another song I wrote for Iron Maiden in the early-90's. Some of the lyrics may seem to flow sluggishly, but if you keep in mind Bruce's style of singing, everything works beautifully.


KILLING MACHINE (lyrics 3:43)

I'm a warrior
I do as I please
No one can stop me
I'm a wrecking-machine

Cross my path
I'll "make your day"
Bury your bones
And spit on your grave

You don't wanna mess with me
I have the power to bring you to your knees
If you see me coming, better run and hide
'Cause I don't take no prisoners
And I won't leave you alive

You can run but ya can't escape me
You can scream but you won't be heard
You can fight but your effort's futile
No mortal man has ever brought me down

You can pray that it's all a dream
You can hope that you walk unseen
Whatever you do I'll be there waiting for you

You don't wanna mess with me
I have the force to bring you to your knees
If you see me coming, better turn away
'Cause if I see you staring back at me
Be sure you're gonna bleed
Oh, look out, I'm coming to get ya!

1st & 2nd guitar solos

I'll be there in your darkest hour
Prepared to steal your soul
I'll be there in your bed at night
When you're scared and all alone

I'd walk across the flames of hell
Just to watch ya burn
If you got the guts
Let's flash the blades
And see which of us remains

You don't wanna mess with me
I have the power to bring you to your knees
No man has ever slain me
No one will ever chain me
I'm am a mighty foe
On your worthless skull I'll blow
There's no eluding me
I'm a killing machine
Alright, let's do it...go!

3rd & 4th guitar solos

If you feel me sneaking up at your back
Better ready your sword and face the attack
'Cause I don't care if you're willing to fight
I'll thrust my blade until you die

Take a shot, you got nothing to lose
Life and death is mine to choose
And the game's not over until I win

You don't wanna mess with me
I have the power to make all of mankind bleed
No one can ever tame me
No man will ever cage me
I'm am a scornful beast
On your slaughtered flesh I'll feast

You can run but you can not hide
I'll cut you and watch you die
There's no escape from me
I'm a killing machine
...I'm deadly steel
I'm a killing machine
...I'm Satan's deal
I'm a killing machine
...watch out world
I'm a killing machine
...I'll get yooooooooooooou
Ooooooooooh...YEAH!
