Lyrics

Karma Soldier

Written By: Strachan/Shainoff/Brodsky

In a cloud of darkness
Rolling through the sky
The wind is rising faster
Lightning flashes by

From over the horizon
He will destroy on sight
With super tanks and birds of prey
And guided satellite

Karma Soldier, soul of steel
Karma Soldier, the earth will kneel
Karma Soldier, lights the way
Until the last day comes
Karma Soldier, marches on

A veteran of the psychic war
Back in ancient times
When he waged a battle for
The soul of all mankind

From the Taurus mountains
To the Nazca plain
With the sign of lightning
Ignite the storm of flame

Karma Soldier, soul of steel
Karma Soldier, the earth will kneel
A lightning war begins to rage
Karma Soldier, fights today

Repeat Verse 1
Repeat Refrain 1
