E' il pezzo più complesso dell'album "Pyromania".

Def Leppard-Pyromania

La song è decisamente una presa di posizione contro la guerra e viene pertanto appropriatamente introdotta da samples di tema bellico, che ora fanno sorridere ma all'epoca erano considerati lo stato dell'arte in fatto di effetti sonori campionati.Un pacato arpeggio introduce uno dei riff tanto caratteristici della band. Di nuovo l'essenzialità e la grinta emergono prepotenti. Pre-chorus e chorus non si discostano da quanto detto. Ma il vero pezzo forte della song è la lunga parte centrale, interamente strumentale: i due chitarristi si scatenano su melodie coinvolgenti e tutt'altro che scontate. Il medesimo riff del chorus chiude con decisione il pezzo.
Let's welcome home the soldier boy from (far away, far away)
No angel of mercy just a need to destroy (fire away, fire away)
Let's toast the hero with blood in his eyes
The scars on his mind took so many lives
Die hard the hunter

Welcome home soldier boy
Put down your pistol, yeah, put down your toy
Yeah, they can take a gun away from you
But never take away your attitude
They can't do that, no, they can't do that

You got no enemy, no front line
The only battles in the back of your mind
You don't know how to change from bad to good
You brought the war to your neighborhood
You can't do that, no, you can't do that

Back in the city, he's a man on the loose
He is the shadow that's following you
He takes no prisoners when he's hunting for game
He's got a bullet and it carries your name

(Die Hard) Caught in a trap
(Hunter) There's no lookin' back
(Die Hard) He's hides in the crowd
(Hunter) Die Hard and proud
