You doubt your strength or courage Don't come to join with me For Deth surely wants you With sharp and pointy teeth An animal so vicious No others fought and won So on the fields of battle We are the chosen one Human bones blanket the dirt of the heathens lair That we must pass this den of deth
The only path from here But I walk in the light The time to die has come No one shall take my life I'm of the chosen ones Black shadows till the sky As the creatures eyes grow near Raise the shield of the holy pilgrims High into the air Heavens powers fill my arms Onward now to fight I'm sent Oh the beast is coming To put you to the test
Lookout! Now this land is mine to pilage Rape, and steal, and take at will Never let you cross this path I reign, for now, I say to Kill

Buggrithall from Mindyourownbusiness, United KingdomIts well known that chosen ones is a homage to python's holy grail.
Mud from Sf, CaIn the booklet of the remastered version of Killing Is My Business, both Dave M. and Dave E. said the song is about the rabbit scene in the Holy Grail.
Jon from --------, SwedenI would rather say that the lyrics are about the quests of the European conquerors. Before going to conquests in places like the Middle East and the Americas fighting indians, they got taught that the people they were gonna meet were like animals, killing anything and anyone they could get their hands on. But when the conquerors arrived, they became the animals and did horrible things to the natives, which the last lines of the lyrics talk about. The connection to Monty Python is simply that Dave borrowed the line "death surely awaits you, with sharp and pointy teeth" from the movie The Holy Grail. It is said by an elder when the knights are going into the cave of the mythical man-eating rabbit.
"St. Elmo's Fire (Man In Motion)" was not written for the movie, but for Rick Hanson, a wheelchair athlete whose 1985 "Man In Motion" tour logged 24,856 miles on his wheelchair in 34 countries while raising $26 million for spinal cord research.
