Editor's note: There is actually a dispute on this line; some lyric sites list it as "...I abhor ya" (which actually sounds right), whereas others say "...I am warrior". Additionally, this entry contradicts another one previously submitted, so until I see the liner notes of the album, or someone can show them to me, I will leave this one as it is.
