Judas Priest Painkiller Lyrics

Last updated: 06/25/2013 12:32:28 PM

[Glenn Tipton, Rob Halford & K.K. Downing]

Faster than a bullet
Terrifying scream
Enraged and full of anger
He's half man and half machine

Rides the Metal Monster
Breathing smoke and fire
Closing in with vengeance soaring high

He is the Painkiller
This is the Painkiller

Planets devastated
Mankind's on its knees
A saviour comes from out the skies
In answer to their pleas

Through boiling clouds of thunder
Blasting bolts of steel
Evils going under deadly wheels

He is the Painkiller
This is the Painkiller

Faster than a lazer bullet
Louder than an atom bomb
Chromium plated boiling metal
Brighter than a thousand suns

Flying high on rapture
Stronger free and brave
Nevermore encaptured
They've been brought back from the grave

With mankind resurrected
Forever to survive
Returns from Armageddon to the skies

He is the Painkiller
This is the Painkiller
Wings of steel Painkiller
Deadly wheels Painkiller

This song is one of my all time favorites. Brings back memories from a time almost forgotten. KK Downing and Glen Tipton are two of the all time best lead duo's (apart from Kerry King and the Late Jeff Hanneman may he Rest In Peace). And Rob Halford's voice in unmistakeable, truly one of the greatest frontmen of all time. If it could possibly be true, I am actually partial to the cover of this song that the late Chuck Schuldner of Death (May HE Rest In Peace also)did. It is one of my favorite Death performed songs, and possibly the BEST cover of ALL TIME! If you love this song, give Death's version a listen and you will probably be amazed.
