Iron maiden

Different world
Different world
bbcode
different world
hallowed be thy name
the trooper
different world
you lead me on a path, keep showing me the way
i feel a little lost, a little strange today
i think i'll take a hold of whatever comes my way
then we'll see what happens take it day by day

i thought i had it all, i had it all worked out
just what the future held, that there would be no doubt
but then the card came up and i took another turn
but i don't know if it's forever that i run

tell me what you can hear
and then tell me what you see
everybody has a different way to view the world
i would like you to know, when you see the simple things
to appreciate this life it's not too late to learn

don't wanna be here
somewhere i'd rather be
but when i get there
i'm afraid it's not for me

tell me what you can hear
and then tell me what you see
everybody has a different way to view the world
i would like you to know, when you see the simple things
to appreciate this life it's not too late to learn

solo

tell me what you can hear
and then tell me what you see
everybody has a different way to view the world
i would like you to know, when you see the simple things
to appreciate this life it's not too late to learn

don't wanna be here
somewhere i'd rather be
but when i get there
i'm afraid it's not for me

dont know what i want
all there i want to be
feeling part confused
the more the days go by

hallowed be thy name

radio 1 legends session

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
cos 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 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
but words escape me when i try to speak
tears they flow but why am i crying
after all i am not afraid of dying
don't believe that there is never 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 die?

as i walk all my life drifts before me
and though the end is near i'm not sorry
catch my soul cos 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.

the trooper

radio 1 legends session

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.

the horse he sweats 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 won't live to fight another day.

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
