The end of time has come, the day after
Everything is black, the world is over
There are no trees, all life has crumbled
Cities tumbled down, man's self-destruction

The end of time has come, the day after
Everything is black, the world is over
There are no trees, all life has crumbled
Cities tumbled down, man's self-destruction

Screams from deep below, what can they be?
Sounds of pounding metal, radiation creation
A creature of strength and power so real
Ascends from beneath, Metalshock to reveal

Atomchild begins to grow, scans the barren zones
Exploring his new home, he's all alone
Through days and nights he roams, up streets and catacombs
No life at all, but a megawatt wall

Great wall stacks to the sky, scarred V lays nigh
Reaches out his mighty fist, the power gives a hiss
The louder it gets, the better he feels
His secret unveils, Metalshock is revealed

Pounding metal across the land
Life-giving magic in his hands
The power chords raise the dead
People come alive banging their heads

Mankind now lives for Metal, it's inside of us all
The power from the shock, rise after we fall
The creature of strength and power so real
Returns us to Earth's core until World War Four

Pounding metal across the land
Life-giving magic in his hands
The power chords raise the dead
People come alive banging their heads

Ah
