Virus (Harris, Gers, Murray, Bayley)

There's an evil virus that's threatening mankind
Not state of the art, a serious state of the mind
The muggers, the backstabbers, the two faced elite
A menace to society, a social disease

Rape of the mind is a social disorder
The cynics, the apathy one-upmanship order

Watching beginnings of social decay
Gloating or sneering at life's disarray
Eating away at your own self esteem
Pouncing on every word that you might be saying

Rape of the mind is a social disorder
The cynics, the apathy one-upmanship order

Superficially smiling a shake of the hand
As soon as the back is turned treachery is planned

Rape of the mind is a social disorder
The cynics, the apathy one-upmanship order

Watching beginnings of social decay
Gloating or sneering... at life's disarray

When every good thing's laid to waste by all the jealousy and hate
By all the acid wit and rapier lies
And every time you think you're safe and when you go to turn away
You know they're sharpening all their paper knives

All in your mind, all in your head, try to relate it
All in your mind, all in your head, try to escape it

Without a conscience they destroy and that's a thing that they enjoy
They're a sickness that's in all our minds
They want to sink the ship and leave, the way they laugh at you and me
You know it happens all the time

All in your mind, all in your head, try to relate it
All in your mind, all in your head, try to escape it

The rats in the cellar, you know who you are
The rats in the cellar, you know who you are
The rats in the cellar, you know who you are
The rats in the cellar, you know who you are

Or do you? Or do you?
Or do you? Or do you?

Watching beginnings of social decay...

Sign Of The Cross (Harris)

Eleven saintly shrouded men, silhouettes stand against the sky
One in front with a cross held high, come to wash my sins away

Standing alone in the wind and rain
Feeling the fear that is growing
Sensing the change in the tide again
Brought by the storm that is brewing
Feel the anxiety hold off the fear
Some of the doubt in the things you believe
Now that your faith will be put to the test
Nothing to do but await what is coming

Why then is God still protecting me
Even when I don't deserve it
Though I am blessed with an inner strength
Some they would call it a penance
Why am I meant to face this alone
Asking the question time and again
Praying to God won't keep me alive
Inside my head feel the fear start to rise

They'll be saying their prayers when the moment comes
There'll be penance to pay when it's judgement day
And the guilty'll bleed when that moment comes
They'll be coming to claim take your soul away

The sign of the cross, the name of the rose
A fire in the sky, the sign of the cross

They'll be coming to bring the eternal flame
They'll be bringing us all immortality
Holding communion so the world be blessed
My creator, my God'll lay my soul to rest

The sign of the cross, the name of the rose
A fire in the sky, the sign of the cross

(8:14 – Solo: Dave Murray)
(8:34 – Solo: Janick Gers)

The sign of the cross, the name of the rose
A fire in the sky, the sign of the cross
The name of the rose, the sign of the cross

Lost the love of heaven above, chose the lust of the earth below
Eleven saintly shrouded men came to wash my sins away

Man On The Edge (Bayley, Gers)

The freeway is jammed and it's backed up for miles
The car is an oven and baking is wild
Nothing is ever the way it should be
What we deserve we just don't get you see

A briefcase, a lunch and a man on the edge
Each step gets closer to losing his head
Is someone in heaven are they looking down
'Cause nothing is fair just you look around

Falling down, falling down, falling down
Falling down, falling down, falling down

He's sick of waiting of lying like this
There's a hole in the sky for the angels to kiss
Branded a leper because you don't fit
In the land of the free you just live by your wits

Once he built missiles a nation's defence
Now he can't even give birthday presents
Across the city he leaves in his wake
A glimpse of the future a cannibal state

Falling down, falling down, falling down
Falling down, falling down, falling down

(2:24 – Solo: Janick Gers)
(2:37 – Solo: Dave Murray)

Is someone in heaven are they looking down
'Cause nothing is fair just you look around

Afraid To Shoot Strangers - live (Harris)

Lying awake at night I wipe the sweat from my brow
But it's not the fear 'cause I'd rather go now
Trying to visualise the horrors that will lay ahead
The desert sand mound a burial ground

When it comes to the time, are we partners in crime?
When it comes to the time, we'll be ready to die

God let us go now and finish what's to be done
Thy Kingdom come, thy shall be done... on Earth

Trying to justify to ourselves the reasons to go
Should we live and let live, forget or forgive?

But how can we let them go on this way?
The reign of terror corruption must end
And we know deep down there's no other way
No trust, no reasoning, no more to say

(Solo: Janick Gers)

Afraid, afraid to shoot strangers
Afraid, afraid to shoot strangers
Afraid, afraid to shoot strangers
Afraid, afraid to shoot strangers
Afraid, afraid to shoot strangers
Afraid, afraid to shoot strangers

(Solo: Dave Murray)

Afraid to shoot strangers
Afraid to shoot strangers
Afraid to shoot strangers
Afraid to shoot strangers

Be Quick Or Be Dead (Dickinson, Gers)

Covered in sinners and dripping with gilt
Making your money from slime and from filth
Parading your bellies in ivory towers
Investing our lives in your schemes and your powers

You got to watch them – Be quick or be dead
Snake eyes in heaven – The thief in your head
You've got to watch them – Be quick or be dead
Snake eyes in heaven – The thief in your head...
Be quick! Or be dead!
Be quick! Or be dead!

See... what's ruling all our lives
See... who's pulling the strings...
See... what's ruling all our lives
See... who pulls the strings...
I bet you won't fall on your face
Your belly will hold you in place

The serpent is crawling inside of your ear
He says you must vote for what you want to hear
Don't matter what's wrong as long as you're alright
So pull yourself stupid and rub yourself blind

You got to watch them – Be quick or be dead
Snake eyes in heaven – The thief in your head
You've got to watch them – Be quick or be dead
Snake eyes in heaven – The thief in your head...
Be quick! Or be dead!
Be quick! Or be dead!

(2:28 – Solo: Janick Gers)
(2:44 – Solo: Dave Murray)

You got to watch them – Be quick or be dead
Snake eyes in heaven – The thief in your head
You've got to watch them – Be quick or be dead
Snake eyes in heaven – The thief in your head...
Be quick! Or be dead!
Be quick!

Fear Of The Dark - live (Harris)

I am a man who walks alone
And when I'm walking a dark road
At night or strolling through the park
When the light begins to change
I sometimes feel a little strange
A little anxious when it's dark

Fear of the dark, fear of the dark
I have a constant fear that something's always near
Fear of the dark, fear of the dark
I have a phobia that someone's always there

Have you run your fingers down the wall
And have you felt your neck skin crawl
When you're searching for the light?
Sometimes when you're scared to take a look
At the corner of the room
You've sensed that something's watching you

Fear of the dark, fear of the dark
I have a constant fear that something's always near
Fear of the dark, fear of the dark
I have a phobia that someone's always there

Have you ever been alone at night
Thought you heard footsteps behind
And turned around and no-one's there?
And as you quicken up your pace
You find it hard to look again
Because you're sure there's someone there

Fear of the dark, fear of the dark
I have a constant fear that something's always near
Fear of the dark, fear of the dark
I have a phobia that someone's always there

(Solo: Janick Gers)
(Solo: Dave Murray)

Fear of the dark, fear of the dark
Fear of the dark, fear of the dark
Fear of the dark, fear of the dark
Fear of the dark, fear of the dark

Watching horror films the night before
Debating witches and folklore
The unknown troubles on your mind
Maybe your mind is playing tricks
You sense and suddenly eyes fix
On dancing shadows from behind

Fear of the dark, fear of the dark
I have a constant fear that something's always near
Fear of the dark, fear of the dark
I have a phobia that someone's always there

When I'm walking a dark road, I am a man who walks alone...

Bring Your Daughter ... ... To The Slaughter (Dickinson)

Honey its getting close to midnight and all the myths are still in town
True love and lipstick on your linen, bite the pillow make no sound
If there's some living to be done before your life becomes your tomb
You'd better know that I'm the one so unchain your back door invite me around

Bring your daughter, bring your daughter to the slaughter
Let her go, let her go, let her go
Bring your daughter, bring your daughter to the slaughter
Let her go, let her go, let her go
Let her go, yeah!

Honey its getting close to daybreak, the sun is creeping in the sky
No patent remedies for heartache, just empty words and humble pie
So get down on your knees honey, assume an attitude
You just pray that I'll be waiting 'cause you know I'm coming soon

Bring your daughter, bring your daughter to the slaughter
Let her go, let her go, let her go
Bring your daughter, bring your daughter to the slaughter
Let her go, let her go, let her go

So pick up your foolish pride, no going back
No where, no way, no place to hide

(2:24 – Solo: Janick Gers)

Bring your daughter, bring your daughter
Bring your daughter, bring your daughter
Bring your daughter, bring your daughter to the slaughter
Bring your daughter, fetch your daughter
Bring your daughter, fetch your daughter
Bring your daughter, fetch your daughter to the slaughter

Bring your daughter, bring your daughter to the slaughter
Let her go, let her go, let her go
Bring your daughter, bring your daughter to the slaughter
Let her go, let her go, let her go

Holy Smoke (Harris, Dickinson)

Believe in me – send no money
I died on the cross and that ain't funny
But my so-called friends are making me a joke
They missed out what I said like I never spoke
They choose what they wanna hear – don't tell a lie
They just leave out the truth as they're watching you die
Saving your souls by taking your money
Flies round shit, bees around honey

Holy smoke, holy smoke
Plenty bad preachers for the Devil to stoke
Feed'em in feet first this is no joke
This is thirsty work making holy smoke

Jimmy Reptile and all his friends
Say they gonna be with you at the end
Burning records burning books
Holy soldiers Nazi looks
Crocodile smiles just wait a while
Till the TV Queen gets her make up clean
I've lived in filth I've lived in sin
And I still smell cleaner that the shit you're in

Holy smoke, holy smoke
Plenty bad preachers for the Devil to stoke
Feed'em in feet first this is no joke
This is thirsty work making holy smoke

(2:09 – Solo: Janick Gers)
(2:31 – Solo: Dave Murray)

They ain't religious but they ain't no fools
When Noah built his Cadillac it was cool
Two by two they're still going down
And the satellite circus just left town
I think they're strange and when they're dead
They can have a Lincoln for their bed
Friend of the President – trick of the tail
Now they ain't got a prayer – 100 years in jail

Holy smoke, holy smoke
Plenty bad preachers for the Devil to stoke
Feed'em in feet first this is no joke
This is thirsty work making holy smoke

The Clairvoyant (Harris)

Is it me or is it shadows that are dancing on the walls?
Is this a dream or is it now?
Is this a vision or normality I see before my eyes?

I wonder why I wonder how
That it seems the power's getting stronger every day
I feel a strength an inner fire
But I'm scared I won't be able to control it anymore

There's a time to live and a time to die when it's time to meet the maker
There's a time to live but isn't it strange that as soon as you're born you're dying
There's a time to live and a time to die when it's time to meet the maker
There's a time to live but isn't it strange that as soon as you're born you're dying

(2:30 – Solo: Dave Murray)

Just by looking in through your eyes
He could see the future penetrating right in through your mind
See the truth and see your lies
But for all his power couldn't foresee his own demise

There's a time to live and a time to die when it's time to meet the maker
There's a time to live but isn't it strange that as soon as you're born you're dying
There's a time to live and a time to die when it's time to meet the maker
There's a time to live but isn't it strange that as soon as you're born you're dying...

...and reborn again?

Can I Play With Madness (Smith, Dickinson, Harris)

Can I play with madness?

Give me the sense to wonder, to wonder if I'm free
Give me a sense of wonder to know I can be me
Give me the strength to hold my head up, spit back in their face
Don't need no key to unlock this door, gonna break down the walls
Break out of this bad place

Can I play with madness? – the prophet stared at his crystal ball
Can I play with madness? – there's no vision there at all
Can I play with madness? – the prophet looked and he laughed at me
Can I play with madness? – he said you're blind too blind too see

I screamed aloud to the old man I said don't lie don't say you don't know
I say you'll pay for your mischief in this world or the next
Oh and then he fixed me with a freezing glance and the hell fires raged in his eyes
He said do you want to know the truth son – I'll tell you the truth
Your soul's gonna burn in a lake of fire

Can I play with madness? – the prophet stared at his crystal ball
Can I play with madness? – there's no vision there at all
Can I play with madness? – the prophet looked and he laughed at me
Can I play with madness? – he said you're blind too blind too see

Oh listen to me, said the prophet

(2:40 – Solo: Adrian Smith)

Can I play with madness? – the prophet stared at his crystal ball
Can I play with madness? – there's no vision there at all
Can I play with madness? – the prophet looked and he laughed at me
Can I play with madness? – he said you're blind too blind too see

Can I play with madness?

The Evil That Men Do (Smith, Dickinson, Harris)

Love is a razor and I walked the line on that silver blade
Slept in the dust with his daughter, her eyes red with the slaughter of innocence
But I will pray for her, I will call her name out loud
I would bleed for her, if I could only see her now

Living on a razor's edge, balancing on a ledge
Living on a razor's edge, balancing on a ledge
Balancing on a ledge, living on a razor's edge
Balancing on a ledge, you know, you know

The evil that men do lives on and on...
The evil that men do lives on and on...
The evil that men do lives on and on...
The evil that men do lives on and on...

Circle of fire my baptism of joy at an end it seems
The seventh lamb slain, the book of life opens before me
And I will pray for you, someday I may return
Don't you cry for me, beyond is where I learn

Living on a razor's edge, balancing on a ledge
Living on a razor's edge, you know, you know

The evil that men do lives on and on...
The evil that men do lives on and on...
The evil that men do lives on and on...
The evil that men do lives on and on...

(3:15 – Solo: Adrian Smith)

Living on a razor's edge, balancing on a ledge

Heaven Can Wait (Harris)

Can't understand what is happening to me
This isn't real this is only a dream
But I never have felt, no I never have felt this way before
I'm looking down on my body below
I lie asleep in the midst of a dream
Is it now could it be the Angel of Death has come for me

I can't believe that really my time has come
I don't feel ready there's so much left undone
And it's my soul and I'm not gonna let it get away

Heaven can wait, heaven can wait, heaven can wait
Heaven can wait 'til another day
Heaven can wait, heaven can wait, heaven can wait
Heaven can wait 'til another day

I have a lust for the earth below
And hell itself is my only foe
'Cause I've no fear of dying, I'll go when I'm good and ready
I snatch a glimpse of the light's eternal rays
I see a tunnel I stand amazed
At all of the people standing there in front of me

Into the paths of rightness I'll be led
Is this the place where the living join the dead?
I wish I knew this was only just a nightmare

Heaven can wait, heaven can wait, heaven can wait
Heaven can wait 'til another day
Heaven can wait, heaven can wait, heaven can wait
Heaven can wait 'til another day

(2:21 – Solo: Dave Murray)

Take my hand I'll lead you to the promised land
Take my hand I'll give you immortality
Eternal youth I'll take you to the other side
To see the truth the path for you is decided

(4:26 – Solo: Adrian Smith)

My body tingles and I feel so strange
I feel so tired I feel so drained
And I'm wondering if I'll ever be the same again
Is this in limbo or Heaven or Hell?
Maybe I'm going down there as well
I can't accept my soul will drift forever

I feel myself floating back down to Earth
So could this be the hour of my rebirth?
Or have I died or will I wake from dreaming?

Heaven can wait, heaven can wait, heaven can wait
Heaven can wait 'til another day
Heaven can wait, heaven can wait, heaven can wait
Heaven can wait 'til another day

Wasted Years (Smith)

From the coast of gold, across the seven seas
I'm travelin' on, far and wide
But now it seems I'm just a stranger to myself
And all the things I sometimes do it isn't me but someone else

I close my eyes, and think of home, another city goes by in the night
Ain't it funny how it is you never miss it 'til it's gone away
And my heart is lying there and will be 'til my dying day

So understand
Don't waste your time always searching for those wasted years
Face up... make your stand
And realise you're living in the golden years

Too much time on my hands, I got you on my mind
Can't ease this pain so easily
When you can't find the words to say it's hard to make it through another day
And it just makes me wanna cry and throw my hands up to the sky

So understand
Don't waste your time always searching for those wasted years
Face up... make your stand
And realise you're living in the golden years

(3:14 – Solo: Adrian Smith)

So understand
Don't waste your time always searching for those wasted years
Face up... make your stand
And realise you're living in the golden years

So understand
Don't waste your time always searching for those wasted years
Face up... make your stand
And realise you're living in the golden years

Rime Of The Ancient Marriner (Harris)

Hear the rime of the ancient mariner
See his eye as he stops one of three
Mesmerizes one of the wedding guests
Stay here and listen the nightmares of the sea

And the music plays on, as the bride passes by
Caught by his spell and the mariner tells his tale

Driven south to the land of the snow and ice
To a place where nobody's been
Through the snow fog flies on the albatross
Hailed in God's name, hoping good luck it brings

And the ship sails on, back to the North
Through the fog and ice and the albatross follows on

The mariner kills the bird of good omen
His shipmates cry against what he's done
But when the fog clears they justify him
And make themselves a part of the crime

Sailing on and on and North across the sea
Sailing on and on and North 'til all is calm

The albatross begins with its vengeance
A terrible curse a thirst has begun
His shipmates blame bad luck on the mariner
About his neck the dead bird is hung

And the curse goes on and on at sea
And the curse goes on and on for them and me

"Day after day, day after day, we stuck nor breath nor motion
As idle as a painted ship upon a painted ocean
Water, water everywhere and all the boards did shrink
Water, water everywhere nor any drop to drink."
SAMUEL TAYLOR COLERIDGE (1798-1834)

There, calls the Mariner, there comes a ship over the line
But how can she sail with no wind in her sails and no tide?

See... onward she comes, onward she nears, out of the sun
See... she has no crew, she has no life, wait but there's two

Death and she Life in Death, they throw their dice for the crew
She wins the mariner and he belongs to her now
Then... crew one by one, they drop down dead, two hundred men
She... She Life in Death, she lets him live, her chosen one

"One after one by the star dogged moon, too quick for groan or sigh
Each turned his face with a ghastly pang, and cursed me with his eye
Four times fifty living men, (and I heard nor sigh nor groan)
with heavy thump, a lifeless lump, they dropped down one by one."
SAMUEL TAYLOR COLERIDGE (1798-1834)

The curse it lives on in their eyes
The mariner he wished he'd die
Along with the sea creatures
But they lived on, so did he
And by the light of the moon
He prays for their beauty not doom
With heart he blesses them,
God's creatures all of them too

Then the spell starts to break
The albatross falls from his neck
Sinks down like lead into the Sea
Then down in falls comes the rain

(Solo: Adrian Smith)
(Solo: Dave Murray)

Hear the groans of the long dead seamen
See them stir and they start to rise
Bodies lifted by good spirits
None of them speak and they're lifeless in their eyes

And revenge is still sought, penance starts again
Cast into a trance and the nightmare carries on

Now the curse is finally lifted
And the Mariner sights his home
Spirits go from the long dead bodies
Form their own light and the Mariner's left alone

And then a boat came sailing toward him
It was a joy he could not believe
The Pilot's boat, his son and the hermit
Penance of life will fall onto Him

And the ship it sinks like lead into the sea
And the hermit shrieves the Mariner of his sins

The Mariner's bound to tell of his story
To tell his tale wherever he goes
To teach God's word by his own example
That we must love all things that God made

And the wedding guest's a sad and wiser man
And the tale goes on and on and on...

Running Free - live (Harris, Di'Anno)

Just sixteen a pickup truck, out of money out of luck
I've got nowhere to call my own, hit the gas and here I go

I'm running free yeah! I'm running free
I'm running free yeah! Oh I'm running free

Spent the night in an L.A. jail and listened to the sirens wail
They ain't got a thing on me, I'm running wild I'm running free

I'm running free yeah! I'm running free
I'm running free yeah! Oh I'm running free

Pulled her at the Bottle Top, whisky dancing disco hop
Now all the boys are after me and that's the way it's gonna be

I'm running free yeah! I'm running free
I'm running free yeah! Oh I'm running free

2 Minutes To Midnight (Dickinson, Smith)

Kill for gain or shoot to maim but we don't need a reason
The Golden Goose is on the loose and never out of season
Blackened pride still burns inside this shell of bloody treason
Here's my gun for a barrel of fun for the love of living death

The killer's breed or the demon's seed
The glamour, the fortune, the pain
Go to war again, blood is freedom's stain
But don't you pray for my soul anymore

2 minutes to midnight, the hands that threaten doom
2 minutes to midnight, to kill the unborn in the womb

The blind men shout let the creatures out, we'll show the unbelievers
The napalm screams of human flames, of a prime-time Belsen feast... YEAH!
As the reasons for the carnage cut their meat and lick the gravy
We oil the jaws of the war machine and feed it with our babies

The killer's breed or the demon's seed
The glamour, the fortune, the pain
Go to war again, blood is freedom's stain
But don't you pray for my soul anymore

2 minutes to midnight, the hands that threaten doom
2 minutes to midnight, to kill the unborn in the womb

(2:45 – Solo: Dave Murray)
(3:06 – Solo: Adrian Smith)

The body bags and little rags of children torn in two
And the jellied brains of those who remain to put the finger right on you
As the madmen play on words and make us all dance to their song
To the tune of starving millions, to make a better kind of gun

The killer's breed or the demon's seed
The glamour, the fortune, the pain
Go to war again, blood is freedom's stain
But don't you pray for my soul anymore

2 minutes to midnight, the hands that threaten doom
2 minutes to midnight, to kill the unborn in the womb

Midnight... midnight... it's all night
Midnight... midnight... all night!

Aces High (Harris)

There goes the siren that warns of the air raid
Then comes the sound of the guns sending flak
Out for the scramble we've got to get airborne
Got to get up for the coming attack

Jump in the cockpit and start up the engines
Remove all the wheel blocks there's no time to waste
Gathering speed as we head down the runway
Got to get airborne before it's too late

Running, scrambling, flying
Rolling, turning, diving, going in again
Running, scrambling, flying
Rolling, turning, diving...

Run, live to fly, fly to live, do or die
Run, live to fly, fly to live, Aces high

(2:09 – Solo: Dave Murray)
(2:23 – Solo: Adrian Smith)

Move in to fire at the mainstream of bombers
Let off a sharp burst and then turn away
Roll over, spin round to come in behind them
Move to their blind sides and firing again

Bandits at 8 O'clock move in behind us
Ten Me-109s out of the sun
Ascending and turning our spitfires to face them
Heading straight for them I press down my guns

Rolling, turning, diving
Rolling, turning, diving, going in again
Rolling, turning, diving
Rolling, turning, diving, going in again

Run, live to fly, fly to live, do or die
Run, live to fly, fly to live, Aces high

Where Eagles Dare (Harris)

It's snowing outside the rumbling sound of engines roar in the night
The mission is near the confident men are waiting to drop from the sky
The blizzard goes on but still they must fly no one should go where eagles dare

Bavarian Alps that lay all around they seem to stare from below
The enemy lines a long time passed are lying deep in the snow
Into the night they fall through the sky no one should fly where eagles dare

(2:11 – Solo: Dave Murray)
(2:50 – Solo: both together)

They're closing in the fortress is near it's standing high in the sky
The cable car's the only way in it's really impossible to climb
They make their way but maybe too late they've got to try to save the day

The panicking cries the roaring of guns are echoing all around the valley
The mission complete they make to escape away from the Eagle's Nest
They dared to go where no one would try they chose to fly where eagles dare

The Trooper (Harris)

You'll take my life but I'll take yours too
You'll fire your musket but I'll run you through
So when you're waiting for the next attack
You'd better stand there's no turning back

The bugle sounds and the charge begins
But on this battlefield no one wins
The smell of acrid smoke and horses breath
As I plunge on into certain death

Ooooooooh! Ooooooooh!

The horse he sweats with fear we break to run
The mighty roar of the Russian guns
And as we race toward the human wall
The screams of pain as my comrades fall

We hurdle bodies that lay on the ground
And the Russians fire another round
We get so near yet so far away
We won't live to fight another day

Ooooooooh! Ooooooooh!

(2:11 – Solo: Adrian Smith)
(2:35 – Solo: Dave Murray)

We get so close near enough to fight
When a Russian gets me in his sights
He pulls the trigger and I feel the blow
A burst of rounds take my horse below

And as I lay there gazing at the sky
My body's numb and my throat is dry
And as I lay forgotten and alone
Without a tear I draw my parting groan

Ooooooooh! Ooooooooh!

The Number Of The Beast (Harris)

I left alone, my mind was blank
I needed time to think, to get the memories from my mind
What did I see? Can I believe
That what I saw that night was real and not just fantasy

Just what I saw in my old dreams
Were they reflections of my warped mind staring back at me
'Cause in my dreams it's always there
The evil face that twists my mind and brings me to despair

Night was black, was no use holding back
'Cause I just had to see was someone watching me
In the mist dark figures move and twist
Was this all for real or just some kind of hell?

Six six six – the Number of the Beast
Hell and fire was spawned to be released

Torches blazed and sacred chants were praised
As they start to cry hands held to the sky
In the night the fires burning bright
The ritual has begun Satan's work is done

Six six six – the Number of the Beast
Sacrifice is going on tonight

(2:46 – Solo: Dave Murray)
(3:15 – Solo: Adrian Smith)

This can't go on I must inform the law
Can this still be real or some crazy dream?
But I feel drawn toward the evil chanting hordes
Seem to mesmerize me, can't avoid their eyes

Six six six – the Number of the Beast
Six six six – the one for you and me

I'm coming back, I will return
And I'll possess your body and I'll make you burn
I have the fire, I have the force
I have the power to make my evil take its course

Run To The Hills (Harris)

The white man came across the sea
He brought us pain and misery
He killed our tribes he killed our creed
He took our game for his own need
We fought him hard we fought him well
Out on the plains we gave him hell
But many came too much for Cree
Oh will we ever be set free?

Riding through dust clouds and barren wastes
Galloping hard on the plains
Chasing the redskins back to their holes
Fighting them at their own game
Murder for freedom the stab in the back
Women and children and cowards attack

Run to the hills, run for your lives
Run to the hills, run for your lives

Soldiers blue in the barren wastes
Hunting and killing the game
Raping the women and wasting the men
The only good Indians are tame
Selling them whisky and taking their gold
Enslaving the young and destroying the old

Run to the hills, run for your lives
Run to the hills, run for your lives

(2:12 – Solo: Dave Murray)

Run to the hills, run for your lives
Run to the hills, run for your lives

Hallowed Be Thy Name (Harris)

I'm waiting in my cold cell when the bell begins to chime
Reflecting on my past life and it doesn't have much time
'Cause at five o'clock they take me to the gallows pole
The sands of time for me are running low...
Running low...

When the priest comes to read me the last rites
I take a look through the bars at the last sights
Of a world that has gone very wrong for me
Can it be there's been some kind of error
Hard to stop the surmounting terror
Is it really the end not some crazy dream?

Somebody please tell me that I'm dreaming
It's not easy to stop from screaming
But words escape me when I try to speak
Tears they flow but why am I crying?
After all I'm not afraid of dying
Don't I believe that there never is an end?

As the guards march me out to the courtyard
Someone calls from a cell "God be with you!"
If there's a god then why has he let me go?
As I walk all my life drifts before me
And though the end is near I'm not sorry
Catch my soul it's willing to fly away

Mark my words please believe my soul lives on
Please don't worry now that I have gone
I've gone beyond to see the truth
When you know that your time is close at hand
Maybe then you'll begin to understand
Life down there is just a strange illusion

(4:50 – Solo: Dave Murray)
(5:08 – Solo: Adrian Smith)

Yeah! Hallowed be thy name! Hallowed be thy name!

Wrathchild (Harris)

I was born into a scene of angriness and greed, and dominance and persecution
My mother was a queen, my dad I've never seen, I was never meant to be

And now I spend my time looking all around
For a man that's nowhere to be found
Until I find him I'm never gonna stop searching
I'm gonna find my man, gonna travel around

'Cause I'm a wrathchild
Well I'm a wrathchild
Yeah I'm a wrathchild
I'm coming to get you, oooh yeah!

(1:01 – Solo: Dave Murray)

Say it doesn't matter, ain't nothin' gonna alter the course of my destination
I know I've got to find some serious peace of mind, or I know I'll just go crazy

And now I spend my time looking all around
For a man that's nowhere to be found
Until I find him I'm never gonna stop searching
I'm gonna find my man, gonna travel around

'Cause I'm a wrathchild
Well I'm a wrathchild
Yeah I'm a wrathchild
I'm coming to get you, oooh yeah!

Phantom Of The Opera (Harris)

I've been looking so long for you now you won't get away from my grasp
You've been living so long in hiding in hiding behind that false mask
And you know and I know that you ain't got that long to last
Your looks and your feelings are just the remains of your past

Standing in the wings there you wait for the curtain to fall
Knowing the terror and holding you have on us all
I know that you're gonna scratch me and maim me and maul
You know I'm helpless from your mesmerising cat call

Keep your distance walk away don't take his bait
Don't you stray, don't fade away
Watch your step he's out to get you come what may
Don't you stray from the narrow way

(2:47 – Slow Solo: Dave Murray)
(5:09 – Solo: Dave Murray)
(5:26 – Solo: Dennis Stratton)

I'm running and hiding in my dreams you're always there
You're the Phantom of the Opera you're the devil you're just out to scare
You damaged my mind and my soul it just floats through the air
You haunt me you taunt me you torture me back at your lair

Sanctuary (Harris, Di'Anno, Murray)

Out of the winter came a war horse of steel
I've never killed a woman before but I know how it feels

I know you'd have gone insane if you saw what I saw
So now I've got to look for sanctuary from the law

I met up with a 'slinger last night to keep me alive
He spends all his money on gambling and guns to survive

I know you'd have gone insane if you saw what I saw
So now I've got to look for sanctuary from the law

So give me sanctuary from the law and I'll be alright
Just give me sanctuary from the law and love me tonight, tonight

(1:11 – Solo: Dennis Stratton)
(1:30 – Solo: Dave Murray)

I know you'd have gone insane if you saw what I saw
So now I've got to look for sanctuary from the law

I can laugh at the wind, I can howl at the rain
Down in the canyon or out in the plain

I know you'd have gone insane if you saw what I saw
So now I've got to look for sanctuary from the law

So give me sanctuary from the law and I'll be alright
Just give me sanctuary from the law and love me tonight, tonight

Strange World (Harris)

(Solo: Dennis Stratton)

The only place where you can dream,
Living here is not what it seems
Ship of white, light in the sky,
Nobody there to reason why
Here I am, I'm not really there,
Smiling faces ever so rare
Let's walk in deepest space,
Living here just isn't the place

(Solo: Dave Murray)

Stalks of light come from the ground
When I cry there isn't a sound
All my feelings cannot be held
I'm happy in my new strange world
Shades of green grasses twine
Girls drinking plasma wine
A look at love, a dream unfolds
Living here you'll never grow old

Don't you hear me call? Ooh ooh ooh ooh

Iron Maiden (Harris)

Won't you come into my room I wanna show you all my wares
I just want to see your blood I just want to stand and stare
See the blood begin to flow as it falls upon the floor
Iron Maiden can't be fought Iron Maiden can't be sought

Oh well, wherever, wherever you are
Iron Maiden's gonna get you no matter how far
See the blood flow, watching it shed up above my head
Iron Maiden wants you for dead

Won't you come into my room I wanna show you all my wares
I just want to see your blood I just want to stand and stare
See the blood begin to flow as it falls upon the floor
Iron Maiden can't be fought Iron Maiden can't be sought

Oh well, wherever, wherever you are
Iron Maiden's gonna get you no matter how far
See the blood flow, watching it shed up above my head
Iron Maiden wants you for dead
