Paschendale [8:27] (Smith, Harris)

In a foreign field you lay
Lonely soldier unknown grave
On his dying words he prays
Tell the world of Paschendale

Relive all that he's been through
Last communion of his soul
Rust your bullets with his tears
Let me tell you about his years

Laying low in a blood-filled trench
Killing time 'til my very own death
On my face I can feel the falling rain
Never see my friends again
In the smoke, in the mud and lead
Smell the fear and the feeling of dread
Soon be time to go over the wall
Rapid fire and the end of us all

Whistles, shouts, and more gun fire
Lifeless bodies hang on barbed wire
Battlefield nothing but a bloody tomb
Be reunited with my dead friends soon
Many soldiers eighteen years
Drown in mud, no more tears
Surely a war no-one can win,
Killing time about to begin

Home, far away from the war, a chance to live again
Home, far away but the war, no chance to live again

The bodies of ours and our foes
The sea of death it overflows
In no man's land God only knows
Into jaws of death we go

Crucified as if on a cross,
Allied troops they mourn their loss
German war propaganda machine
Such before has never been seen
Swear I heard the angels cry
Pray to God no more may die
So that people know the truth
Tell the tale of Paschendale

Cruelty has a human heart
Every man does play his part
Terror of the men we kill
The human heart is hungry still
I stand my ground for the very last time
Gun is ready as I stand in line
Nervous wait for the whistle to blow
Rush of blood and over we go

Blood is falling like the rain
Its crimson cloak unveils again
The sound of guns can't hide their shame
And so we die in Paschendale

Dodging shrapnel and barbed wire
Running straight at cannon fire
Running blind as I hold my breath
Say a prayer, symphony of death
As we charge the enemy lines
A burst of fire and we go down
I choke a cry but no-one hears
Feel the blood go down my throat

Home, far away from the war, a chance to live again
Home, far away but the war, no chance to live again
Home, far away from the war, a chance to live again
Home, far away but the war, no chance to live again

See my spirit on the wind
Across the lines, beyond the hill
Friend and foe will meet again
Those who died at Paschendale

Rainmaker [3:48] (Murray, Harris, Dickinson)

When I was wandering in the desert
And I was searching for the truth
I heard a choir of angels calling out my name
I had the feeling that my life would never be the same again
I turn my face towards the barren sun

And I know of the pain, that you feel the same as me
And I dream of the rain as it falls upon the leaves
And the cracks in our lives like the cracks upon the ground
They are sealed and are now washed away

You tell me we can start the rain
You tell me that we all can change
You tell me we can find something to wash the tears away

You tell me we can start the rain
You tell me that we all can change
You tell me we can find something to wash the tears

And I know of the pain, that you feel the same as me
And I dream of the rain as it falls upon the leaves
And the cracks in the ground like the cracks are in our lives
They are sealed and now far away

You tell me we can start the rain
You tell me that we all can change
You tell me we can find something to wash the tears away

You tell me we can start the rain
You tell me that we all can change
You tell me we can find something to wash the tears

You tell me we can start the rain
You tell me that we all can change
You tell me we can find something to wash the tears away

You tell me we can start the rain
You tell me that we all can change
You tell me we can find something to wash the tears

And I know of the pain, that you feel the same as me
And I dream of the rain as it falls upon the leaves
And the cracks in the ground like the cracks are in our lives
They are sealed and now far away

The Wicker Man [4:35] (Smith, Harris, Dickinson)

Hand of fate is moving and the finger points to you
He knocks you to your feet and so what are you gonna do
Your tongue has frozen now you've got something to say
The piper at the gates of dawn is calling you his way

You watch the world exploding every single night
Dancing in the sun a newborn in the light
Say goodbye to gravity and say goodbye to death
Hello to eternity and live for every breath

Your time will come, your time will come
Your time will come, your time will come

The ferryman wants his money you ain't going to give it back
He can push his own boat as you set up off the track
Nothing you can contemplate will ever be the same
Every second is a new spark, sets the universe aflame

You watch the world exploding every single night
Dancing in the sun a newborn in the light
Brothers and their fathers joining hands and make a chain
The shadow of the Wicker Man is rising up again

Your time will come, your time will come
Your time will come, your time will come

Your time will come, your time will come
Your time will come, your time will come
Your time will come, your time will come
Your time will come, your time will come

Brave New World [6:18] (Murray, Harris, Dickinson)

Dying swans twisted wings, beauty not needed here
Lost my love, lost my life, in this garden of fear
I have seen many things, in a lifetime alone
Mother love is no more, bring this savage back home

Wilderness house of pain, makes no sense of it all
Close this mind dull this brain, Messiah before his fall
What you see is not real, those who know will not tell
All is lost sold your souls to this brave new world

A brave new world, in a brave new world
A brave new world, in a brave new world
In a brave new world, a brave new world
In a brave new world, a brave new world

Dragon kings dying queens, where is salvation now
Lost my life lost my dreams, rip the bones from my flesh
Silent screams laughing here, dying to tell you the truth
You are planned and you are damned in this brave new world

A brave new world, in a brave new world
A brave new world, in a brave new world
In a brave new world, a brave new world
In a brave new world, a brave new world

A brave new world, in a brave new world
A brave new world, in a brave new world
In a brave new world, a brave new world
In a brave new world, a brave new world

Dying swans twisted wings, bring this savage back home

Futureal [2:55] (Harris, Bailey)

I'm running out of time, I'm running out of breath
And now it's getting so I can't sleep at night
In the day, feel like death

I'm getting in far too deep, I feel them closing in
I've got to say that I'm scared, I know they'll win
Even so, I'm prepared

Do you believe what you hear? Can you believe what you see?
Do you believe what you feel? Can you believe?
What is real? Futureal!
What is real?

Whenever anyone seems to treat me like a freak
It makes me see I'm the only one who feels
That I know what is real

Sometimes it feels like a game of deadly hide and seek
And when you're reading this, then I will be gone
Maybe then, you will see

Do you believe what you hear? Can you believe what you see?
Do you believe what you feel? Can you believe?
What is real? Futureal!
What is real? Futureal!

Do you believe what you hear? Can you believe what you see?
Do you believe what you feel? Can you believe?
What is real? Futureal!
What is real? Futureal!
What is real? Futureal!
What is real? Futureal!

The Clansman [9:00] (Harris)

Wake alone in the hills with the wind in your face
It feels good to be proud and be free and a race
That is part of a clan and to live on highlands
And the air that you breathe, so pure and so clean

When alone on the hills with the wind in your hair
With a longing to feel just to be free

It is the right to believe in the need to be free
It's a time when you die and without asking why
Can't you see what they do, they are grinding us down
They are taking our land that belongs to the clans

Not alone with a dream, just a want to be free
With a need to belong, I am a clansman

Freedom! Freedom!
Freedom! Freedom!

It's a time wrought with fear, it's a land wrought with change
If ancestors could hear what is happening now
They would turn in their graves, they would all be ashamed
That the land of the free has been written in chains

And I know what I want when the timing is right
And I'll take what is mine, I am the clansman

And I swear to defend and we'll fight to the end
And I swear that I'll never be taken alive
And I know that we'll stand and we'll fight for our land
And I swear that my bairns will be born free

And I know what I want when the timing is right
And I'll take what I want, I am the clansman

Freedom! Freedom!
Freedom! Freedom!

No, no we can't let them take anymore
No we can't let them take anymore, we're the land of the free
No, no we can't let them take anymore
No we can't let them take anymore, we're the land of the free
No, no we can't let them take anymore
No we can't let them take anymore, we're the land of the free
No, no we can't let them take anymore
No we can't let them take anymore, we're the land of the free

Freedom! Freedom!
Freedom! Freedom!

It is the right to believe in the need to be free
It's a time when you die and without asking why
Can't you see what they do, they are grinding us down
They are taking our land that belongs to the clans

Not alone with a dream, just a want to be free
With a need to belong, I am the clansman

And I know what I want when the timing is right
And I'll take what is mine, I am the clansman

Freedom! Freedom!
Freedom! Freedom!

And I know what I want when the timing is right
And I'll take what is mine, I am the clansman

Sign Of The Cross [11:16] (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

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 [4:42] (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

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

Be Quick Or Be Dead [3:24] (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!

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 [7:52] (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

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..

Holy Smoke [3:48] (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

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

Bring Your Daughter ... To The Slaughter [4:43] (Dickinson)

Honey it's 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 it's 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

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

I'm gonna get you!

The Clairvoyant [4:27] (Harris)

Feel the sweat break on my brow
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

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?

The Evil That Men Do [4:34] (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...

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...

The evil, the evil, the evil that men do
The evil, the evil, the evil that men do

Wasted Years [5:06] (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

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

Heaven Can Wait [7:20] (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

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

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

2 Minutes To Midnight [6:00] (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

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 [4:29] (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

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

Flight Of Icarus [3:51] (Dickinson, Smith)

As the sun breaks above the ground an old man stands on the hill
As the ground warms to the first rays of light a bird song shatters the still
His eyes are ablaze, see the madman in his gaze

Fly, on your way, like an eagle, fly as high as the sun
On your way, like an eagle, fly and touch the sun

Now the crowd breaks and a young boy appears, looks the old man in the eye
As he spreads his wings and shouts at the crowd "In the name of God my father I'll fly!"
His eyes seem so glazed as he flies on the wings of a dream
Now he knows his father betrayed, now his wings turn to ashes to ashes his grave

Fly, on your way, like an eagle, fly as high as the sun
On your way, like an eagle, fly as high as the sun

Fly, on your way, like an eagle, fly as high as the sun
On your way, like an eagle, fly as high as the sun
On your way, like an eagle, fly toward the sun
On your way, like an eagle, fly...

Fly as high as the sun

The Trooper [4:11] (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!

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 [4:51] (Harris)

Woe to you, oh Earth and Sea,
for the Devil sends the beast with wrath,
because he knows the time is short...
– Revelations 12:12
Let him who hath understanding reckon the number of the beast
for it is a human number, its number is Six hundred and sixty six.
– Revelations 13:18

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

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 [3:54] (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

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

Wrathchild [2:55] (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!

Some say it shouldn'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!

Killers [5:02] (Harris, Di'Anno)

You walk through the subway his eyes burn a hole in your back
A footstep behind you he lunges prepared for attack
Scream for mercy he laughs as he's watching you bleed
Killer behind you his blood lust defies all his needs

My innocent victims are slaughtered with wrath and despise
The mocking religion of hatred that burns in the night
I have no one I'm bound to destroy all this greed
A voice inside me compelling to satisfy me

I can see what a knife's meant to be
And you'll never know how I came to foresee, see, see

My faith in believing is stronger than lifelines and ties
With the glimmer of metal my moment is ready to strike
Death call arises a scream breaks the still of the night
Another tomorrow remember to walk in the light

I have found you and now there is no place to run
Excitement shakes me oh God help me what have I done?
Ooh yeah I've done it again!

You walk through the subway my eyes burn a hole in your back
A footstep behind you he lunges prepared for attack
Scream for mercy he laughs as he's watching you bleed
Killer behind you my blood lust defies all my needs
Oooh look out I'm coming for you
Hahahahahah!

Phantom Of The Opera [7:08] (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

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

Running Free - Live [8:43] (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

Iron Maiden - Live [4:50] (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
