A newer mix of this track appears on We Love You All.

First new Halo song since 2004. Theme song for the (so far) one-part video epic.


You’d better scurry flee and hide
From anachronistic homicide
He'll melt that smile into a frown
When the steampunk monster comes to town

He'll swoop down in his time machine
And zap you into smithereens
You better run -- nobody sits
'Til Barry the Steampunk Monster quits

He's built himself from weapons
Pulled from all time and space
Specifically selected to
Annihilate the human race

He’s got laser eyes, a crossbow arm
Breathes poison gas, spits cluster bombs
His gears for ears spill acid vats
From the steampunk monster’s velvet hat

So keep an eye behind your back
You can’t guess when he’ll next attack
When your neck tingles quake with fear
That means the steampunk monster’s near

He's got impeccable fashion sense
That never dings and never dents
While crushing all that’s in the path
Of Barry the Steampunk Monster's wrath

He lives to kill you just for fun
But don’t think that’s the end
He’ll rewrite history then he’ll kill you
Again again and again and again

Bust out the guns, bats, bombs, and knives
So starts the battle of our lives
No one will ever rest their head
'Til Barry the Steampunk Monster's dead
