Song lyrics aren't supposed to be a fountain of perfect english, but on the other hand some are just so
atrocious, they need to get called out. We're not looking for sentance fragments or the word ain't since there are too many instances to count.

Heavy boots of lead fills his victims full of dread
"Boots" is the subject, with "of lead" modifying it; "fills" is the verb. "Boots" is plural, and "fills" is singular. If it's re-written as "heavy lead boots fills his victims full of dread", the error is more obvious. It should be "Heavy boots of lead FILL his victims full of dread".

Make a joke and I will sigh and you will laugh and I will cry.
Happiness I cannot feel and love to me is so unreal.
There Shouldn't Be an "And" there as in "and you will laugh and I will cry." If We Were To Remove An And, It'd Say, "You Will Laugh and I Will Cry".
"happiness I cannot feel" should probably be "I Cannot Feel Happiness".
