Iron maiden

Run to the hills
Run to the hills
run to the hills
22 acacia avenue
the prisoner
run to the hills


white man came across the sea
brought us pain and misery
killed our tribes killed our creed
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

22 acacia avenue


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

the prisoner


on the run kill to eat
you're starving now you're dead on your feet
going all the way nature's beast
do what i want 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 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

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
cos i'll run rings round you
