Like the perpetual motion of the turning wheel

I am protected from you by my shield of steel

 

The insults you use to make me kneel

Are deflected by my shield of steel

 

You try to break me with your hardened keel

But can not break thru my shield of steel

 

The trouble is that I can no longer feel

Because I have to use my shield of steel

 

I wish I could predict the hand you deal

So I may lower slightly my shield of steel

 

But until that day comes I will not yield

I will not lower my mighty shield of steel
