Lyrics:

You killed your first man at 13,
Killer instinct, animal supreme,
By 16 you had learned to fight
The way of the warrior, you took it as your right.

Chorus:
Sunlight, falling on your steel,
Death in life is your ideal,
Life is like a wheel, rolling on and on

Through earth and water, fire and wind,
You came at last-nothing was the end,
Make a cut by fire and stones,
Take you and your blade and brake you both
in two-break you both in two
