Lyrics:

I am Iron Man!
Has he lost his mind? Can he see or is he blind?
Can he walk at all? Or if he moves, will he fall?
Is he alive or dead? Has he thoughts within his head?
We'll just pass him there, why should we even care?

He was turned to steel in the great magnetic field
When he traveld time for the future of mankind
Nobody wants him, he just stares at the world
Planning his vengence that he will soon unfurl

Now the time is here for Iron Man to spread fear
Vengence from the grave kills the people he once saved
Nobody wants him, they just turn their heads
Nobody helps him, now he has his revenge

Heavy bolts of lead fills his victoms full of dread
Running as fast as they can, Iron Man lives again
