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
