[Part I: Rust in Peace] [Verse 1] "Tremble, you weaklings, cower in fear I am your ruler - land, sea, and air Immense in my girth, erect I stand tall I am a nuclear murderer, I am Polaris" Ready to pounce at the touch of a button My system's locked in on military gluttons I rule on land, air, and sea I pass judgement on humanity Winds blow from the bowels of Hell Will we give warning? Only time will tell Satan rears his ugly head To spit into the wind [Pre-Chorus] I spread disease like a dog, discharge my payload A mile high, rotten egg air of death wrestles your nostrils I spread disease like a dog, discharge my payload A mile high, rotten egg air of death wrestles your nostrils [Chorus] Launch the Polaris The end doesn't scare us When will this cease? The warheads will all rust in peace [Verse 2] "Bomb shelters filled to the brim Heh, survival, such a silly whim World leaders sell missiles cheap Your stomach turns, your flesh creeps" I rule on land, air, and sea Pass judgment on humanity Winds blow from the bowels of Hell Will we give warning? Only time will tell [Pre-Chorus] I spread disease like a dog, discharge my payload A mile high, rotten egg air of death wrestles your nostrils I spread disease like a dog, discharge my payload A mile high, rotten egg air of death wrestles your nostrils [Chorus] Launch the Polaris The end doesn't scare us When will this cease? The warheads will all rust in peace [Verse 3] "High priest of holocaust, fire from the sea Nuclear winter, spreading disease The day of final conflict, all pay the price The third world war rapes peace, takes life" Back to the start, talk of the part When the Earth was cold as ice Total dismay as the sun passed away And the days were black as night [Pre-Chorus] I spread disease like a dog, discharge my payload A mile high, rotten egg air of death wrestles your nostrils I spread disease like a dog, discharge my payload A mile high, rotten egg air of death wrestles your nostrils [Chorus] Launch the Polaris It doesn't scare us When will this cease? The warheads will all rust in peace [Part II: Polaris] [Chorus] Eradication of Earth's population loves Polaris Eradication of Earth's population loves Polaris [Guitar Solo] [Instrumental Break] [Chorus] Eradication of Earth's population loves Polaris Eradication of Earth's population loves Polaris
