Judas Priest – Grinder lyrics

Never straight and narrow
I won't keep in time
Tend to burn the arrow
Out of the line

Been inclined to wander
Off the beaten track
That's where there's thunder
And the wind shouts back

Looking for meat
Wants you to eat

Got no use for routine
I shiver at the thought
Open skies are my scene
That's why I won't get caught

Refuse to bite the mantrap
Be led to set the snare
I love to have my sight
Capped everywhere

Looking for meat
Wants you to eat

(solo glenn)

I've held my licence
It came with birth,
For self reliance on this earth
You take the bullet
On which my name
Was etched upon in your game

Day of independence
Stamped us like a brand
Round the necks of millions
To the land

As the mighty eagle
I need room to breathe
Witness from the treadmill
I take my leave

Looking for meat
Wants you to eat

Looking for meat
Wants you to eat

    How is it that every lyrics website I've seen gets this song wrong? The lyrics can be easily checked on the CD or album liner notes! What you and every other site have transcribed doesn't even make sense in many cases! And how many mistakes can you make in one song? Does anybody bother to check this stuff at all? "Bend the arrow out of line", not burn. "This boy won't get caught". "Refuse to bait the mantrap" - not bite the mantrap (oy!). "I have my license". The service of providing easy to look up lyrics is great, but please check to make sure they're right! It's a small point, but if you're going to do something, at least do a good job of it. Awesome, brilliant song, btw - one of Priest's best social commentaries - and they have a lot of great ones. See Walden, and The Road Less Traveled, for common themes.
