Terror is my weapon, my armoury. It causes fear; destroys lives.
Every nation is vulnerable to me. I can hit anytime, anywhere.
Rout the enemy, destroy and kill. It makes me the champion.
Remember the damage I inflict on nations. It can be your turn one day.
Over my dead body can you stop me. My fame is spreading worldwide.
Read my lips; but you can’t see my face. I am a mask. I don’t dialogue.
I am terrorism. If you don’t meet my demands, I hit you hard. Ask Nigeria. I hit on land and air.
So you want to stop me. Try it, let’s see who will crash. Terror is worry.
Mark my words; the fear of me is the beginning of security. Meet my demands; I will leave you alone.
