(Little Boys)
OK? yall can start singing
Alright - alright - set - I can't hear you - not that damn loud!

You've got something about you
You've got something I need
Daughter of Aphrodite
Hear my words and take heed
I was born on Olympus
To my father a son
I was raised by the demons (she laughs)
Trained to reign as the one

God of thunder and rock and roll
The spell you're under
Will slowly rob you of your virgin soul
(studio girl)
What? - I can't, I don't wanna do it too loud

I'm the lord of the wastelands
A modern day man of steel
I gather darkness to please thee
And I command you to kneel
Before the

God of thunder and rock and roll
The spell you're under
Will slowly rob you of your virgin soul

(Little boys)
What? God damnit
And I'm not like that crack addict
(somebody that's mocking her)
Bla blah blah raa raa raa!

I am the lord of the wastelands +(studio girl) Raaaaa! Ahhhhhhahhhahhhh
A modern day man of steel
I gather darkness to please thee +(studio girl) Stop, ok man!
And I command thee to kneel
Before the

God of thunder and rock and roll
The spell you're under
Will slowly rob you of your virgin soul

    From the beginning the lyrics at the top are wrong, the kid says sing, not set. As for the rest I don't hear many of the words that are mentioned by the kids like crack addict, not too much mention of crack at the time this song was released. I think the kids were just running around and talking like kids tend to do.

    This song was originally written by Paul Stanley, to be sung by Paul. It really doesn't have too deep of a meaning; it's a typical self-reverential rock song, with Paul proclaiming himself the God of Thunder and Rock and Roll. When they went to record this in the studio, Bob Ezrin (producer of the Destroyer album) thought the song better suited Gene's Demon persona. They slowed the groove down, made it heavier and made it Gene's signature song.
    By the way, the children you hear throughout the song aren't saying anything related to the song at all. The lyrics posted here are not quite accurate: Bob Ezrin's children came in the studio one day, armed with walkie-talkie style space helmets, and Bob recorded them goofing around, with the intention of slowing them down and making them sound creepy. He figured they sounded creepy enough at normal speed, and mixed them into the song. It's highly doubtful they were saying things like "god damn it," and seeing as the songs were recorded mid-70's I don't think they were making crack references just yet.
