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 locked in on military gluttons
Well, 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
Satan rears his ugly head
To spit into the wind

Well, I spread disease like a dog
Discharge my payload a mile high
Rotten egg air of death wrestles your nostrils

Well, I spread disease like a dog
Discharge my payload a mile high
Rotten egg air of death wrestles your nostrils

Launch the Polaris
The end doesn't scare us
When will this cease?
The warheads will all rust in peace

Bomb shelters filled to the brim
Survival such a silly whim
World leaders sell missiles cheap
Your stomach turns, your flesh creeps

Well, 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

Well, I spread disease like a dog
Discharge my payload a mile high
Rotten egg air of death wrestles your nostrils

Well, I spread disease like a dog
Discharge my payload a mile high
Rotten egg air of death wrestles your nostrils

Launch the Polaris
The end doesn't scare us
When will this cease?
The warheads will all rust in peace

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 where black as night

Well, I spread disease like a dog
Discharge my payload a mile high
Rotten egg air of death wrestles your nostrils

Well, I spread disease like a dog
Discharge my payload a mile high
Rotten egg air of death wrestles your nostrils

Launch the Polaris
The end doesn't scare us
When will this cease?
The warheads will all rust in peace

Eradication of earth's population loves Polaris
Eradication of earth's population loves Polaris

Eradication of earth's population loves Polaris
Eradication of earth's population loves Polaris
