The Number of the Beast

Letra de
Invaders
(Harris / Stephen Percy)

Longboats have been sighted the evidence of war has begun
Many nordic fighting men their swords and shields all gleam in the sun
Call to arms defend yourselves get ready to stand and fight for your lives
Judgement day has come around so be prepared don't run stand your ground

They're coming in from the sea
They've come the enemy
Beneath the blazing sun
The battle has to be won
Invaders ... pillaging
Invaders ... looting
 
Set ablaze the campfires alert the other men from inland
Warning must be given there's not enough men here for a stand
The vikings are too many much too powerful to take on our own
We must have reinforcements we cannot fight this battle alone

They're coming over the hill
They've come to attack
They're coming in for the kill
There's no turning back
Invaders ... fighting
Invaders ... marauding

Axes grind and maces clash as wounded fighters fall to the ground
Severed limbs and fatal woundings bloody corpses lay all around
The smell of death and burning flesh the battle weary fight to the end
The saxons have been overpowered victims of the mighty norsemen

You'd better scatter and run
The battle's lost and not won
You'd better get away to fight another day
Invaders ... raping
Invaders ... plundering

Letra de Children of the Damned
(Harris / Stephen Percy)

He's walking like a small child
But watch his eyes burn you away
Black holes in his golden stare
God knows he wants to go home
Children of the damned
(repeat another 3 times)

He's walking like a dead man
If he had lived he would have crucified us all
Now he's standing on the last step
He thought oblivion well it beckons us all
Children of the damned
(repeat another 3 times)

Now it burns his hand he's turning to laugh
Smiles as the flame sears his flesh
Melting his face screaming in pain
Peeling the skin from his eyes
Watch him die according to plan
He's dust on the ground what did we learn

You're children of the damned
Your back's against the wall
You turn into the light
You're burning in the night
You're children of the damned
Like candles watch them burn
Burning in the light
You'll burn again tonight
You're children of the damned
==================================================================

Letra de The Prisioner
(Steve Harris / Adrian Smith)

I'm on the run, I kill to eat
I'm starving now, feeling dead on my feet
Going all the way, I'm natures beast
Do what I want and do as I please

Run - Fight - To breathe - It's tough
Now you see me now you don't
Break the walls I'm coming out

Not a prisoner I'm a free man
And my blood is my own now
Don't care where the past was
I know where I'm going ...out!

If you kill me it's self defense
And if I kill ya' then I call it vengeance

Spit in your eye I will defy
You'll be afraid when I call out your name

Run - Fight - To breathe - It's gonna be tough
Now you see me now you don't
Break the walls I'm coming out

Not a prisoner I'm a free man
And my blood is my own now
Don't care where the past was
I know where I'm going

I'm not a number I'm a free man
Live my life where I want to
You'd better scratch me from your black book
Cause' I'll run rings around you
==================================================================

Letra de 22, Acacia Avenue
(Harris / Stephen Percy / Smith / Adian Frederick)

If you're feeling down depressed and lonely
I know a place where we can go
22 acacia avenue meet a lady that I know
So if you're looking for a good time
And you're prepared to pay the price
Fifteen quid is all she asks for
Everybody's got their vice

If you're waiting for a long time for the rest to do their piece
You can tell her that you know me and you might even get it free
So any time you're down the east end don't you hesitate to go
You can take my honest word for it she'll teach you more than you can know

Charlotte can't you get out from all this madness
Can't you see it only brings you sadness
When you entertain your men don't know the risk of getting disease

Some day when you're reaching the age of forty
I bet you'll regret the days when you were laying
Nobody then will want to know
You won't have any beautiful wares to show any more

22, the avenue that's the place where we all go
You will find it's warm inside the red light's burning bright tonight

Charlotte isn't it time you stopped this mad life
Don't you ever think about the bad times
Why do you have to live this way
Do you enjoy your lay or is it the pay

Sometimes when your strolling down the avenue
The way you walk it make men think of having you
When you're walking down the street
Everybody stops and turns to stare at you

Beat her mistreat her do anything that you please
Bite her excite her make her get down on her knees
Abuse her misuse her she can take all that you've got
Caress her molest her she always does what you want

You're running away don't you know what you're doing
Can't you see it'll lead you to ruin
Charlotte you've taken your life and you've thrown it away
You believe that because what you're earning
Your life's good don't you know that you're hurting
All the people that love you don't cast them aside
All the men that are constantly drooling
It's no life for you stop all that screwing
You're packing your bags and you're coming with me
==================================================================

Letra de The Number of the beast
(Harris / Stephen Percy)

I lived alone
my mind was blank
I needed time to think to get the memories from my mind

What did I see?
Could 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 all this for real
or just some kind of hell
6-6-6 the Number of the Beast
Hell and fire was spawned to be released

Torches blazed and
sacred chants were phrased
as they start to cry
hands held to the sky
In the night
the fires are burning bright
the ritual has begun
Satan's work is done
6-6-6 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 just some crazy dream?
but I feel drawn
towards the chanting hordes
seem to mesmerise...can't avoid their eyes
6-6-6 the Number of the Beast
6-6-6 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'll have the fire
I'll have the force
I'll have the power
to make my evil take its course
==================================================================

Letra de Run to the Hills
(Harris / Stephen Percy)

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 dustclouds 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
Woman and children, a cowards attack

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

Soldier blue in the barren wastes
Hunting and killing's a game

Raping the woman and wasting the man
"The only good injins are tame"

Selling them whiskey 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
==================================================================

Letra de Total Eclipse
(Harris / Stephen Percy)

Sunrise has gone freezing up the fires.
Sunrise has gone numbing our desires.

Around the world the people stop,
With terror stricken eyes.
A shadow cast upon them all,
To crush them like a fly.
In the icy rain and whiplashed seas,
There's nowhere left to run.
The hammer blows of winter fall like a hurricane.

Around the world the nations wait,
For some wise word from their leading light.
You know it isn't only madmen who listen to fools.
Is this the end, the millions cried,
Clutching their riches as they died.
Those who survive must weather the storm.

Gone are the days when man looked down.
They've taken away his sacred crown.
To be set free, it took so long.
It's not journeys' end, it's just begun.
==================================================================

Letra de Gangland
(Burr / Clive Ronald / Smith / Adian Frederick)

Shadows may hide you but also may be your grave
You're running today maybe tomorrow you'll be saved
You pray for daylight to save you for a while
You wonder if your children will face the killer's smile

Dead men -- tell no tales
In gangland -- murder's up for sale
Dead men -- tell no tales
In gangland -- where jail birds die

Face at the window leers into your own
But it's only your reflection still you tremble in your bones
How long can you hide? how long till they come?
A rat in a trap but you've got to survive

Once you were glad to be free for a while
The air tasted good and the world was your friend
Then came the day when the hard times began
Now your alone but alive for how long?

A knife at your throat another body on the pile
A contract to keep and it's service with a smile
Murder for vengeance or murder for gain
Death on the streets or a blackened out jail

Dead men -- tell no tales
In gangland -- murder's up for sale
Dead men -- tell no tales
In gangland -- where jail birds die

In gangland you tell no tales
==================================================================
 
Letra de Hallowed Be Thy Name
(Harris / Stephen Percy)

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 5 o'clock they take me to the Gallows Pole,
The sands of time for me are 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 that there's some sort 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 fall 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,
Somebody cries 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 'cause 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 here is just a strange illusion.

Yeah, yeah, yeah... Hallowed be Thy name
Yeah, yeah, yeah... Hallowed be Thy name
Yeah

Piece of Mind

Letra de
Revelations
(Dickinson / Bruce)

O God of earth and altar
Bow down and hear our cry
Our earthly rulers falter
Our peolple drift and die
The walls of gold entombe us
The swords of scorn divide
Take not thy thunder from us
But take away our pride
(G. k. chesterton: english hymnal)

Just a babe in a black abyss
No reason for a place like this
The walls are cold and souls cry out in pain
An easy way for the blind to go
A clever path for the fools who know
The secret of the hanged man - the smile on his lips

The light of the blind you'll see
The venom that tears my spine
The eyes of the nile are opening - you'll see

She came to me with a serpents kiss
As the eye of the sun rose on her lips
Moonlight catches silver tears I cry
So we lay in a black embrace
And the seed is sown in a holy place
And I watched and I waited for the dawn

The light of the blind you'll see
The venom that tears my spine
The eyes of the nile are opening - you'll see

Bind all of us together
Ablaze of hope and free
No storm or heavy weather
Will rock the boat you'll see
The time has come to close your eyes
And still the wind and rain
For the one who will be king
The watcher in the ring
It is you
==================================================================

Letra de Where Eagles Dare
(Harris / Stephen Percy)

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

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 round the valley
The mission complete the make to escape
Away from the eagles nest

They dared to go where no one would try
They chose to fly where eagles dare
==================================================================

Letra de Flight Of Icarus
(Dickinson / Bruce / Smith / Adian Frederick)

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 birdsong 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 wings like an eagle
Fly and touch the sun

Now the crowd breaks and a young boy appears
Look the old man in his eyes
As he spreads his wings and shouts at the crowd
In the name of God my father I fly

His eyes seem so glazed
As he flies on the wings of a dream
Now he knows his father betrayed
Now his wings burn to ashes to ashes his grave

Fly on your way like an eagle
Fly as high as the sun
On your wings like an eagle
Fly and touch the sun
==================================================================

Letra de Die With Your Boots On
(Dickinson / Bruce / Smith / Adian Frederick / Harris / Stephen Percy)

Yeah! Another Prophet of Disaster
Who says the ship is lost,
Another Prophet of Disaster
Leaving you to count the cost.
Taunting us with Visions,
Afflicting us with fear,
Predicting War for millions,
In the hope that one appears.

(Chorus)
No point asking when it is,
No point asking who's to go,
No point asking what's the game,
No point asking who's to blame.
'cos if you're gonna die, if you're gonna die,
'cos if you're gonna die, if you're gonna die,

If you're gonna die, die with your boots on.
If you're gonna try, just stick around,
Gonna cry, just move along,
If you're gonna die, you're gonna die.

In 13 the Beast is rising,
The Frenchman did surmise,
Through earthquakes and starvation,
The warlord will arise.
Terror, Death, Destruction,
Pour from the Eastern Sands,
But the truth of all predictions,
Is always in your hands.

(Repeat chorus)

They died with their boots on, yes they diiieeeed...
The day they die with their boots on, we dieeeeeeeeeee
WE DIE!
WE DIE!
WE DIE!
WE DIE!
WE DIE!

(Repeat chorus)
==================================================================

Letra de The Trooper
(Harris / Stephen Percy)

You'll take my life but I'll take yours too
You'll fire your musket but I'll run you through
So when your waiting for the next attack
You'dbetter stand there's no turning back
The bugle sounds the charge begins
But on this battle field no one wins
The smell of acrid smoke and horses breath as I plunge on into certain death

(Chorus)
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh x2

The horse he swaets with fear we break to run
The mighty roar of the russian guns
And as we race towards 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 wont live to fight another day

(Chorus)

(Solos)

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 takes 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
==================================================================

Letra de Still Life
(Harris / Stephen Percy / Murray / David Michel)

Take a look in the pool and what do you see
In the dark depths there faces beckoning me
Can't you see them it's plain for all to see
They where there oh I know you don't believe me

Oh... I never felt so strange
But... I'm not going insane

I've no doubt that you think I'm off my head
You don't say but it's in your eyes instead
Hours I spend out just gazing into that pool
Something draws me there I don't know what to do

Oh... they drain my strength away
Oh... they're asking me to stay

Nightmares... spirits calling me
Nightmares... they won't leave me be

All my life's blood is slowly draining away
And I feel that I'm weaker every day
Somehow I know I haven't long to go
Joining them at the bottom of the pool
Now... I feel they are so near
I... begin to see them clear

Nightmares... coming all in time
Nightmares... will give me piece of mind

Now it's clear and I know what I have to do
I must take you down there to look at them too
Hand in hand then we'll jump right into that pool
Can't you see not just me they want you too

Oh... we'll drown together
It... will be forever

Nightmares... forever calling me
Nightmares... now we rest in peace
==================================================================

Letra de Quest For Fire
(Harris / Stephen Percy)

In time when dinosaurs walked the earth
When the land was swamp and caves where home
In an age when prize possession was fire
To search for landscapes men would roam

Then the tribes they came to steal the fire
And the wolves they howled into the night
As they fought a viscious angry battle
To save the power of warmth and light

Drawn by quest for fire
They searched all through the land
Drawn by quest for fire
Discovery of man

And they thought that when the embers died away
That the flame of life had burnt and died
Didn't know the sparks that made the fire
Were made by rubbing stick and stone

So they ploughed through forest and swamps of danger
And they fought the cannibal tribes and beasts
In the search to find another fire
To regain the power of light and heat

Drawn by quest for fire
They searched across the land
Drawn by quest for fire
Discovery of man
==================================================================

Letra de Sun and Steel
(Dickinson / Bruce / Smith / Adian Frederick)

You killed your first man at 13,
Killer instinct, Animal supreme,
By 16 you had learned to fight
The way of the warrior, you took it as your right.

Sunlight, falling on your steel,
Death in life is your ideal,
Life is like a wheel.

Through earth and water, fire and wind,
You came at last-nothing was the end,
I'll make a cut by fire and stones,
Take you and your blade and break you both in two
Break you both in two.

Sunlight, falling on your steel,
Death in life is your ideal,
Life is like a wheel.
And it's rolling still.
==================================================================

Letra de To Tame a Land
(Harris / Stephen Percy)

He is the king of all the land
In the kingdom of the sands
Of a time tomorrow

He rules the sandworms and the fremen
In a land amongst the stars
Of an age tomorrow

He is destined to be a king
He rules over everything
On the land called planet dune

Bodywater is your life
And without it you would die
On the desert the planet dune

Without the stillsuit you would fry
On the sands so hot and dry
In a world called arrakis

It is a land that's rich in spice
The sandriders and the 'mice'
That they call the muad' dib

He is the kwizatz haderach
He is born of caladan
And will take the gom jabbar

He has the power to foresee
Or to look into the past
He is the ruler of the stars

The time will come for him
To lay claim his crown
And then the foe yes
They'll be cut down
You'll see he'll be the
Best that there's been
Messiah supreme
True leader of men
And when the time
For judgement's at hand
Don't fret he's strong
And he'll make a stand
Against evil the fire
That spreads through the land
He has the power
To make it all end
