Iron maiden

No prayer for the dying
No prayer for the dying
bbcode
Tailgunner
Holy smoke
No prayer for the dying
Public enema number one
Fates warning
The assassin
Run silent run deep
Hooks in you
Bring your daughter... ...to the slaughter
Mother Russia
Holy smoke
bbcode
Bring your daughter... to the slaughter
bbcode
All in your mind
Kill me ce soir
I'm a mover
Communication breakdown
Tailgunner
Race your way back 50 years
Ro the glow of dresden-blood and tears
In the black above by the cruel searchlight
Men will die and men will fight-yeah|
Who shot who and who fired first?
Dripping death to whet the bloodthirst
No radar lock on-skin and bone
The bomber boys are going home

CHORUS

Climb into the sky never wonder why-tailgunner
You're a tailgunner

(REPEAT)

Nail that fokker kill that son.
Gonna blow your guts out with my gun
The weather forecasts good for war
Cologne and frankfurt?have some more
Tail end charlie in the boiling sky
The Enola Gay was my last try
Now that this tailgunner's gone
No more bombers (just one big bomb)

CHORUS
				
top

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

CHORUS

Holy smoke holy smoke
There's plenty bad preachers for the devil to stoke
Feed 'em in feet first this is no joke
This is thirsty work making holy smoke yeah
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 than the shit you're in

REPEAT CHORUS

Holy smoke
Smells good
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

REPEAT CHORUS

HOLY SMOKE
				
top

No prayer for the dying
There are times when I've wondered
And times when I've cried
When my prayers they were answered
At times when I've lied
But if you asked me a question
Would I tell you truth
Now there's something to bet on
You've got nothing to lose

When I've sat by the window
And gazed at the rain
With an ache in my heart
But never feeling the pain
And if you would tell me
Just what my life means
Walking a long road
Never reaching the end

God give me the answer to my life
God give me the answer to my dreams
God give me the answer to my prayers
God give me the answer to my being

Public enema number one
when it all comes down the line
and the lights they turn to greed
and you race off with your tyres screaming
rolling thunder
and the people choke with poison
children cry in fear
but you've got your fast bullet
one way ticket outta here

CHORUS

Fall on your knees today
And pray the world will mend its ways
Get to your feet again
Refugees from the heartbreak and the pain

In the cities in the streets
There's a tension you can feel
Breaking strain is fast approaching
Guns and riots
Politicians gamble and lie to save their skins
And the press get fed the scapegoats
Public enema number one

CHORUS

A million network slaves
In an advertising new age
I don't need a crystal ball to sell ya
Your children have more brains
Than your drug infested remains
California dreaming as the earth dies screaming

CHORUS
				
top

Fates warning
Why is it some of us are destined to stay alive
And some of us are here just so that we'll die
How come the bullet hits the other guy
Do we have to try and reason why

CHORUS

Be it the devil or be it him
You can count on just one thing
When the time is up you'll know
Not just one power runs the show

Are we the lucky ones saved for another day
Or they the lucky ones who are taken away
Is it a hand on your shoulder from the lord above
Or the devil himself come to give you a shove

CHORUS

A volcano erupts and sweeps a town away
A hurricane devastates the cities in its way
The grief and misery for the ones that are left behind
The worst is yet to come a hell to face mankind
				
top

The assassin
now the contracts out
They've put the word about
I'm coming after you

It's not the money I make
It's the thrill of the chase
And I'm coming after you

I watch your every move
Study the things you do
And the pattern of your ways

I watch the way you walk
I hear your telephone talk
I want to understand the way you think

CHORUS

Better watch out,cos I'm the assassin,
Better watch out,better watch out

(REPEAT)

I'm in a cold cold sweat
I taste the smell of death
I know the moment's getting closer

And as you walk to the light
I feel my hands go tight
Excitement running through my veins

I've got you in my sights
I've got you dead to rights
The triggers waiting for my finger

I feel adrenalin rush
It's just the final touch
You can kiss your arse goodbye

CHORUS
				
top

Run silent run deep
The convoy lights are dead ahead
The merchantmen lay in their bed
The thump of diesels hammers down
In the oily sea-the killing ground
His knuckles white his eyes alight
He slams the hatch on the deadly night
A cunning fox in the chickens lair
A hound of hell and the devil don't care

CHORUS

Runing silent,runing deep,we are your final prayer
Warriors in secret sleep,a merchantman's nightmare
A silent death lies awaiting,for all of you below
Running silent,running deep,sink into your silent sleep

Chill the hearts of fighting men
In open ocean wondering when?
The lethal silver fish will fly
The boat will shiver-men will die
A cast of millions-a part to play
Killer?victim?or fool for a day
Obeying an order-men have to die
Us or them-a well rehearsed lie

CHORUS

The lifeboats shattered the hull is torn
The tar black smell of burning oil
On the way down to Davy Jones
Every man for himself-you're on your own
The wolf eyes watch the crosswire
'stern tubes ready','aim and fire|'
They can pin some medal on your chest
But in two more weeks-dead like the rest

CHORUS
				
top

Hooks in you
I got the keys to view at number 22
Behind my green door there's nothing to see
Stone cold sober and sitting in silence,laid
Back and looking for symphaty
I like a girl who knows where she's bound
I don't like girls who've been hanging around

CHORUS

Hooks in you,hooks in me,hooks in the ceiling
For that well hung feeling
No big deal,no big sin,strung up on love I
Got the hooks screwed in

CHORUS

She's tied up she can't come to the phone
You must have got your wires crossed cos she ain't home
Knock on wood-you know I like that sound
She never could keep her feet on the ground

CHORUS

Right on the money got it wrapped up tight
New ideas for the decor tonight
Gonna make this house a preservation zone
Gonna set her in concrete set her up on her own
				
top

Bring your daughter... ...to the slaughter
Honey its getting close to midnight
And all the myths are 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

Honey its getting close to daybreadk
The sun is creeping in the sky
No patent remedies for heartache
Just empty words and humble pie

So get down on your kneees honey
Assume an attitude
You just pray that I'll be waiting
Cos you know I'm coming soon

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

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

Mother Russia
Mother Russia how are you sleeping
Middle winter cold winds blow
From the trees the snowflakes drifting
Swirling round like ghosts in the snow

Mother Russia poetry majestic
Tells the time of a great empire
Turning round the old man ponders
Reminiscing an age gone by

Mother Russia
Dance of the tsars
Hold up your heads
Be proud of what you are
Now it has come
Freedom at last
Turning the tides of history
Snd your past

Mother Russia
Dance of the tsars
Hold up your heads
Remember who you are
Can you release
The anger the grief
Can you be happy
Now your people are free

All in your mind

Stray's song

Look inside your head and find
And tell me now that it's all in your mind
Look inside your head and find
A way deep inside and it's all in your mind

It's all in your mind, it's all in your mind

Revolution, air pollution
Chairman Mao Tse Tung is in your mind (but he's dead now... he's not very well anyway!)
New day breaking, people hating
Love supreme, but it's all in your mind

It's all in your mind, it's all in your mind

Segregation, preservation
Politicians all are in your mind
Pewter Suta, kama sutra
Even Blankenheimer is in your mind

It's all in your mind, it's all in your mind

Kill me ce soir

Golden earring's song

Remember that song called kill me, from Victim's last LP
Too much of a risk for a golden disc, the price he paid for money

Ce soir, ce soir, assassination d'un rock'n'roll star
Ce soir, ce soir, assassination d'un rock'n'roll star

Sing your song, you can't go wrong, tempted his business advisor
No need for alarm, you'll come to no harm, he didn't mention the sniper

Ce soir, ce soir, assassination d'un rock'n'roll star
Ce soir, ce soir, assassination d'un rock'n'roll star

The news is read, the need is fed, one yawn, two yawn, and back to bed
Turn off the light, and hold me tight, c'mon, maman, bend down your head
And just sing on, immortal song, fini, belle vie, bonne nuit

Remember that song called kill me, a lecture on political chicanery
Of peoples rape, recorded on tape, brought shame to the presidency

Tonight, tonight, one more point for human rights
Tonight, tonight, one more point for human rights

Remember that song kill me, once used by a man from Gallilee
He had nothing to lose, he was King of the Jews, secured his place in History

Ce soir, ce soir, assassination d'un provocateur
Ce soir, ce soir, assassination d'un provocateur

The news is read, the poison's spread, one yawn, two yawn, and back to bed
Turn off the light, and hold me tight, c'mon, maman, bend down your head
And just sing on, immortal song, fini, belle vie
Turn off the light and hold me tight, come on

Vick played his part with all his heart, he wasn't prepared for the shock
When hollow lead bit into his head, a new martyr for the book of rock
When hollow lead bit into his head, a new martyr for the book of rock

Ce soir, assassination d'un rock'n'roll star
Ce soir, ce soir, assassination d'un rock'n'roll star
Ce soir, assassination d'un rock'n'roll provocateur
Ce soir, ce soir, ce soir, assassination d'un rock'n'roll star

I'm a mover

Free's song

I was born by the river, just like this river, I've been moving ever since
Ain't got nobody to call my own, you know I've been moving since the day I was born
Life is a game just made for fun, you know I don't love nobody, I don't love no one

Yes, I'm a mover, baby

Following the footsteps; one fine day,
When I asked the wise man which was the way
He said: "Follow your heart and look for yourself
And come back and tell me what you have learned"

Yes, I'm a mover, baby

(2:24-Solo)

Went back and told him, I found me a wife,
Eleven children and a real good life
Told him of love and there's a happy home,
But I need to return to that long winding road

Yes, I'm a mover, baby

I've got to move on down
Move on

Communication breakdown

Led Zeppelin's song

Hey girl, what you doin!
Hey girl, you'll drive me to ruin
I don't know what it is about you,
But I like it a lot
Oh why don't you let me hold you,
Let me feel your lovin' touch

Communication breakdown, it's always the same
I'm having a nervous breakdown, drive me insane!

Hey girl, I got something I think you want to know
Hey girl, I wanna tell you that I love you so
I wanna hold you in my arms,
And feel your love tonight
I'm never gonna let you go,
'Cause I like your charms

Communication breakdown, it's always the same
I'm having a nervous breakdown, drive me insane!

(1:16-Solo: Janick Gers)

Communication breakdown, it's always the same
I'm having a nervous breakdown, drive me insane!

Communication breakdown,
Communication breakdown
Communication breakdown,
I want to feel your love all night
Communication breakdown,
Communication breakdown,
I'm gonna make your telephone work tonight,
Communication breakdown,
