Now your ships are burned
And the evil has returned
It will creep upon you
There's nothing to do

It will rip up your mind
And death you will find
Life is just a game
And death is just the same

Within the bloodstained walls
In the center of your brain
Demons without mercy
Driving you insane

It will rip up your mind
And death you will find
Life is just a game
And death is just the same
Now your ships are burned
And the evil has returned
It will creep upon you
There's nothing to do

It will rip up your mind
And death you will find
Life is just a game
And death is just the same

When the orders are obeyed
And you have been slayed
You're lying on the ground
Without making a sound

As your soul fades away
You can hear someone say
Ring the dooms day bell
Turn the world into hell!

    I think this song was a message to all the other guitarists at the time, because Yngwie blew their minds and turned their world upside down by revealing that they weren't even close to being as advanced or as fast as they thought they were. "Now your ships are burned" is basically another way to say "now you are defeated."
