Seek and Destroy Lyrics
We are scanning the scene
in the city tonight
We're looking for you
to start up a fight
There's an evil feeling in our brains
But it's nothing new
you know it drives us insane
On our way

I think is about devils who want to kill people. The song is telling the devils perspective.

It's about the insatiable need to kill or hunt someone down. btw the lyrics are "You've always been taking, and now you're given" not "You;ve always been b*tching, and now you're killing."

It's about them hating glam metal in the city! Nough said!

I view this song is about nuclear armament, 'thousand death' could not be done by a man without war, and if we keep on providing more and more atomic bomb 'There is no escape and that's for sure'- 'Our brains are on fire with the feelings to kill' our leaders are thinking of how to have more and more atomic warfare, this song invites this generation to condemn evil nuclear weaponry.

Its about the feeling to kill. It was inspired by a Diamond Head song, though i cannot recall the name.
