HIS EYES ARE ABLAZE... SEE THE MADMAN IN HIS GAZE....

Personally, I prefer the song 'revelations'. That one really brings home the bacon.

Let him who hath understanding reckon the number of the

Hallowed Be Thy Name


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 so easy to stop from screaming,
The words escape me when I try to speak.
Tears 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,
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,
Though the end is near I'm not sorry.
Catch my soul, it's willing to fly away.

Mark my words believe my soul lives on.
Don't worry now that I have gone.
I've gone beyond to seek 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

Heey jeey yeahh. Hallowed be thy name
Heey jeey yeahh. Hallowed be thy name
Yeeeeeahh!

Same here. One of my favorite songs of all time. Nothing like listening to Maiden to remind me of my junior and senior years in high school (late 80's), drinking lots of beers with my friends. Those were the days...

Run to the hills


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 a 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

Soldier blue on the barren wastes
Hunting and killing their 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

we must be the same age, lol. the last minute of revelations is one of the finest moments in music as far as I'm concerned.

.......and the best song Maiden ever wrote

"2 Minutes to Midnight"


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
Some 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 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.



Midnight...all night...

Dammit. Now I gotta put "Powerslave" in the CD player.

Maiden gets my nod for the best damn album art ever,and is on my very short list of all time greates metal bands.

The Powerslave tour was one of the all time top five shows I've ever seen...just the stage was worth the price of admission.

Absolutely! I saw Maiden on the Powerslave tour at the ripe ol age of 15 and it has not been equaled in all these years. Maiden is the one band in all these years I can still listen to and enjoy time and again. Man am I glad that Dickinson is back. The last CD was good and I went to the show and had a blast. It really took me back.

Up the IRONS!
Link Posted: 2/11/2006 7:33:38 PM EDT
Was a BIG Maiden fan back in the day, my all time favorite was:

The Prisoner

I'm on the run, I'll kill to eat,
Starving now, feeling dead on my feet.
Going all the way, I'm nature's beast.
Do what i want, I do as i please.

Run, you've gotta fight, to breathe, it's tough.
Now you see me, now you don't.
Break the walls, I'm coming out.

I'm 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 defence.
If I kill you, then I call it vengeance.
Spit in your eye, I will defy.
You'll be afraid when I call out your name.

Run, you've gotta fight, to breathe, it's tough.
Now you see me, now you don't.
Break the walls, I'm coming out.

I'm 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,
I'll live my life how i want to.
You'd better scratch me
from your black book,
'Cause I'll run rings around you.

yup. back then Eddie was a dude with a mask and all he did was wave around one of the stage lights in front of a little smoke machine.

Di'Anno was a great singer.

Strange World is one of Maidens best songs ever.

Runing Free was probably my next favorite tune.
Ok that or Charlotte the HArlot. Dang almost all songs from the first two albums are unbeatable.
Link Posted: 2/11/2006 7:39:08 PM EDT
Agreed on the album art. Love the cover art to Powerslave, as well as the tune. First metal LP that I owned as a kid.

Into the abyss I'll fall-the eye of Horus
Into the eyes of the night-watching me go
Green is the cat's eye that glows-in this temple
Enter the risen Osiris-risen again.

Tell me why I had to be a powerslave
I don't wanna die, I'm a god, why can't I live on?
When the Life Giver dies, all around is laid to waste.
And in my last hour,
I'm a slave to the power of death.

When I was living this lie-fear was my game

People would worship and fall-drop to their knees
So bring me the blood and red wine for the one to succeed me
For he is a man and a god-and he will die too.

Now I am cold but a ghost lives in my veins,
Silent the terror that reigned-maarbled in stone
Shell of a man God preserved-a thousand ages
But open the gates of my hell-I will strike from the grave.

This is positively the BEST fucking Maiden song ever.

I always loved the bass interlude and instrumental part of this one. When I was playing in bands in high school (played drums, guitar, and bass, but couldn't sing my way out of a paper bag though), I would always practice my bass chops at home with this one.

Steve Harris is the shit, yo!

Ahem, ok, I now return myself back to being 35 again...

Steve Harris is the FATHER of METAL BASS. Though I'm not Maidens biggest fan. He was the man all other bass players were judged. Metal, that is. Second to none. When I learned to play Phantom of the Opra, I thought I was the shit! Can still play it now after all these years.

I had to re-kindle this thread, as I just happened upon it looking for something else. (can't believe I missed it in the first place ). Anyway, gotta give my favorite album vote to Piece Of Mind ("Flight of Icarus" and "The Trooper" are the BEST Maiden songs EVER!!!). That said....and as much as I dig Bruce Dickinson, man I gotta wonder how it woulda been had DiAnno stuck around. Iron Maiden is my second favorite album, as I absolutely love "Remember Tomorrow" and "Charlotte the Harlot" (the first installment in the "Charlotte" series). Man, Maiden never, ever grows old to me.......I gotta say they are my all-time favorite band. IMO, Steve Harris is very underrated, not only as a bassist, but the brains behind the song writing and image of Maiden.

Northern Irish Loyalists love Maiden apparently. I took this picture last year - this mural is in Derry (Londonderry) city, Northern Ireland. Note the "UFF" (Ulster Freedom Fighters) tab on Eddie's left sleeve.
