Iron maiden

The final frontier
The final frontier
bbcode
Satellite 15... the final frontier
El dorado
Mother of mercy
Coming home
The alchemist
Isle of avalon
Starblind
The talisman
The man who would be king
When the wild wind blows
Satellite 15... the final frontier
I'm stranded in space, I'm lost without trace
I haven't this chance of getting away
Too close to the sun and surely will burn
Like Icarus before me or so legend goes
I'm taking my life, reliving the past
There's nothing but wait til' my time comes
I've had a good life, I'd do it again
Maybe I'll come back some time, my friends

For I have lived my life to the full
I have no regrets anekatips
But I wish I could talk to my family to tell them
One last goodbye

The final frontier
The final frontier
The final frontier
The final frontier

If I could survive to live one more time
I wouldn't be changing a thing at all
Do more in my life than some do in ten
I'd go back and do it all over again

For I have lived my life to the full
I have no regrets
But I wish I could talk to my family and tell them
that one last goodbye

The final frontier [x4]

[Guitar solo]

There isn't much time, must say my last rites
Nobody is here to read them to me
Must say my goodbyes, if only a line
A message to tell them in case they might find

But I have filled my life to the full
I have no regrets
But I wish I could talk to my family to tell them
That one last goodbye

The final frontier, the final frontier [repeat]

El dorado
Gotta tell you a story on a cold winters night
You'll be sailin' for glory before you know what
is right
So come over here now, I got a vision for you
It's my personal snake oil, it's just something I
do

I'm the jester with no tears and I'm playing on
your fears
I'm a trickster smiling underneath this mask of
love and death
The eternal lie I've told about the pyramids of
gold
I've got you hooked at every turn your money's
left to burn

You'll be wanting a contract, you'll be waiting a
while
I'd like to give you my contact but that isn't my
style
Well you only get one chance and it's too good to
miss
If I gave a lot to ya then I wouldn't exist

Greed, lust and angry pride it's the same old,
same old ride
The smoke and mirrors visions that you see are
just like me
I'm a banker's face with just a letter out of
place
I know someone just like you knows someone just
like me

El Dorado come and play, El Dorado step this way
Take a ticket for the ride, El Dorado streets of
gold
See those over sold, you've got one last chance
to try

So gone is the glory and gone is the gold
Well if you need a story I've come it has to be
told
Well you can say I'm a devil and I wouldn't say,
no
But out here on the dark side, hey, on with the
show

So is told, big and bad and twice as bold
This ship of fools is sinking as the cracks begin
to grow
There is no easy way for an honest man today
Which is something you should think of as my life
boat sails away

El Dorado come and play, El Dorado step this way
Take a ticket for the ride, El Dorado streets of
gold
See those over sold, you've got one last chance
to try

Mother of mercy
Sitting, waiting in the falling rain
Getting ready to begin again

Wounded lying, crying, bodies moving, dying
All around there is the smell of death and fire
Here the planes are coming, hear the soldiers
running
Killing on a scale to comprehend

Why are we here in this place, here to kill?
Please God, forgive us for what we have done

I always thought I was doing right
As of now I'm not feeling so sure
I'm at a place of where I give no grace
I'm a soldier of war

I sit, waiting for my darkest hour to come
I cannot think about the things that I have
done
It shouldn't take a fool to see that I believe
Accept the consequence, repent for what I've
done

You tell me what is certain but I'll tell you
what is true
You tell me what is honesty when all around is
death and cruelty
The making of a man is fire, not giving into
our desires
Within the truth it lies within the only thing

Mother of mercy, angel of death desire
Mother of mercy, taking my last breath of fire
Mother of mercy, angel of pain
Mother of mercy, taking my last breath

Some say you are a lost cause, some say you're
a saint
Just being here's an act of suffering and
restraint
Walk down the long dark road to ruin and panic
not
I'll die a lonely death of that I'm certain of

Rivers flow with blood, there's nowhere left to
hide
It's hard to comprehend there's anyone left
alive
Sick of all the killing and the reek of death
Will God tell me what religion is to man?

I don't hold with bad religion, understand
what's underneath it
Now I come to think of it, I just don't hold at
all, you know it
You say you are a holy man but what is it you
do?
From where I stand is nothing but a hollow man
I see

Mother of mercy, angel of death desire
Mother of mercy, taking my last breath of fire
Mother of mercy, angel of pain
Mother of mercy, taking my last breath

Mother of mercy, angel of death desire
Mother of mercy, taking my last breath of fire
Mother of mercy, angel of pain
Mother of mercy, drawing my last breath

I'm just a lonely soldier fighting in a bloody
hopeless war
Don't know what I'm fighting, who it is or what
I'm fighting for
Thought it was for money, make my fortune, now
I'm not so sure
Seem to just have lost my way
				
top

Coming home
When I stand before you shining in the early
morning sun
When I feel the engines roar and I think of what
we've done
Oh, the bittersweet reflection as we kiss the
earth goodbye
As the waves and echoes of the towns become the
ghosts of time

Over borders that divide the earthbound tribes
No creed and no religion, just a hundred winged
souls
We will ride this thunder bird, silver shadows on
the earth
A thousand leagues away, our land of birth

To Albion's land, coming home when I see the
runway lights
In the misty dawn the night is fading fast
Coming home, far away as their vapor trails align
Where I've been tonight, you know I will not stay

Curving on the edge of daylight 'til it slips
into the void
Waited in the long night, dreaming 'til the sun
is born again
Stretched the fingers of my hand, covered
countries with my span
Just a lonely satellite, speck of dust and cosmic
sand

Over borders that divide the earthbound tribes
Through the dark Atlantic, over mounting stormy
crates
We will ride this thunder bird, silver shadows on
the earth
A thousand leagues away, our land of birth

To Albion's land, coming home when I see the
runway lights
In the misty dawn the night is fading fast
Coming home, far away as their vapor trails align
Where I've been tonight, you know I will not stay

To Albion's land, coming home when I see the
runway lights
In the misty dawn the night is fading fast
Coming home, far away as their vapor trails align
Where I've been tonight, you know I will not stay

Coming home, far away when I see the runway
lights
In the misty dawn the night is fading fast
Coming home, far away as their vapor trails align
Where I've been tonight, you know I will not stay

The alchemist
Stranger than the comet as it streaks across the sky
Stranger than the truth I know before my open eyes
I have dealt in mysteries and trickery, of light to entertain
Looked into the abyss, called it by its name

I have plundered time itself, put the world inside it
I'm the mysteries, day and night, divide it
A plague of wonders, on your knees beside me
Know the secrets, you shall not deride us

My dreams of empire from my frozen queen
Will come to pass
Know me, the Magus
I am Dr. Dee
And this is my house

I am the master of the tides
I shame the mirror in my sight
What random music of the spheres
Across the years

Know this
I will return to this land
Rebuild where the ruins did stand
Chain up the demons set free
Strange alchemy

Gather round the aimless and the feckless and the lame
Hear the master summon up the spirits by their names
I curse you Edward Kelley your betrayal for eternity is damned
Know you speak with demons, you cannot command

Even as I looked into the glass then I was blinded
Burning by the Mortlake shore my house my books inside it
You have taken up my wife and lain beside her
Now the black rain on my house, the timbers burning

My dreams of empire from my frozen queen
Will come to pass
Know me, the Magus
I am Dr. Dee
And this was my house

I was the keeper of the books
I had the knowledge of the scrolls
But now through ignorance and fear
I cast a shadow through the years

Know this
I will return to this land
Rebuild where the ruins did stand
Chain up the demons set free
Strange alchemy

Know this
I will return to this land
Rebuild where the ruins did stand
Chain up the demons set free
Strange alchemy

Know this
I will return to this land
Rebuild where the ruins did stand
Restore the knowledge memory
Strange alchemy

Isle of avalon
I can hear them floating on the wind
Immortal souls, their weeping saddens me
Mother Earth, you know your time is near
Awaken lust, the seed is sown and reaped

Through the western isle, I hear the dead
awaken
Rising slowly to the court of Avalon
The cauldron of the head of Annwyn laced with
envy
Dark around its edge with pearl and destiny

All my days I've waited for the sign
The one that brings me closer to isle of Avalon
I can feel the power flowing through my veins
My heart is beating louder, close to Avalon

I can hear you, can you hear me?
I can feel you, can't you feel me?

Fertility Mother Goddess
Celebration, sow the seeds of the born
The fruit of her body laden
Through the corn doll, you will pray for them
all

The image of Mother Goddess
Lying dormant, in the eyes of the dead
The sheaf of the corn is broken
End the harvest, throw the dead off the pyre

I hear her crying the tears of an angel
The voices I hear in my head
Blessed the fruits are the corn of the earth
Mother Earth, holy blood of the dead

Mother Earth, I can hear you
Sacrifice, now united

Rising levels of the tidal lakes protect them
Keepers of the goddess in the underworld
Holding powers of the mystics deep inside them
Nineteen maidens, guardians of the other world

Mortal conflict born of Celtic legend
That apart from seven non returned from Avalon

Mother Earth, I can feel you
My rebirth now completed

Fertility Mother Goddess
Celebration, sow the seeds of the born
The fruits of her body laden
Through the corn doll, you will pray for them
all

The image of mother goddess
Lying dormant in the eyes of the dead
The sheaf of the corn is broken
End the harvest, throw the dead on the pyre

To have the belief of others
Looking for the isle to show them a sign
Fertility of all mothers
Stood in silence waiting now for their turn

The gateway to Avalon
The island where the souls of dead are reborn
Brought here to die and be
Transferred into the earth and then for rebirth

I hear her crying the tears of an angel
The voices I hear in my head
Blessed the fruits are the corn of the earth
Mother Earth, holy blood of the dead

The water in rivers and rhymes rises quickly
Are flowing and flooding the land
The sea shall return once again just to hide
them
Lost souls on the isle of the dead

Starblind
Take my eyes, the things I've seen
In this world coming to an end.
My reflection fades, I'm weary
Of these earthly bones and skin.

You may pass through me and
Leave no trace, I have
No mortal face.
Solar winds are whispering,
You may hear me call.

We can shed our skins and swim
Into the darkened void beyond.
We will dance among the world
That orbit stars that aren't our sun.

All the oxygen that trapped us in
A carbon spider's web.
Solar winds are whispering, you
May hear the sirens of the dead.
Let the elders to their parley
Meant to satisfy our lust.
Leaving Damacles still hanging
Over all their promised trust.

Walk away from freedoms offered
By the jailors in their cage.
Step into the light, startripping
Over mortals in their rage.

Starblind with sun, the
Stars are one.
We are the light that brings
The end of night.
Starblind with sun, the
Stars are one.
We are with the Goddess
Of the sun tonight.

The preacher loses face
With Christ.
Religion's cruel device is gone.
Empty flesh and hollow bones
Make pacts of love but die alone.
The crucible of pain will forge the
Blanks of sin, begin again.
You are free to choose a life to live
Or one that's left to lose.

Virgins in the teeth of God are
Meat and drink to feed the damned.
You may pass through me and I
Will feel the life that you live less.
Step into my light, startripping.
We will rage against the night.

Walk away from comfort offered
By your citizens of death.

Starblind with sun, the
Stars are one.
We are the light that brings
The end of night.
Starblind with sun, the
Stars are one.
We are with the Goddess
Of the sun tonight.

Take my eyes for what I've seen.
I will give my sight to you.
You are free to choose whatever:
Life to live or life to lose.

Whatever God you know,
He knows you better than you
Believe.
In your once and future grave
You'll fall endlessly deceived.

Look into our face reflected in the
Moonglow in your eyes.
Remember you can choose
To look but not to see and
Waste your hours.

You believe you have the time
But I tell you your time is short.
See your past and future, all the
Same, and it cannot be bought.

Starblind with sun, the
Stars are one.
We are the light that brings
The end of night.
Starblind with sun, the
Stars are one.
We are with the Goddess
Of the sun tonight.

Take my eyes for what I've seen.
I will give my sight to you.
You are free to choose whatever:
Life to live or life to lose.
Whatever God you know,
He knows you better than you
Believe.
In your once and future grave
You'll fall endlessly deceived.

The preacher loses face
With Christ.
Religion's cruel device is gone.
Empty flesh and hollow bones
Make pacts of love but die alone.
The crucible of pain will forge the
Blanks of sin, begin again.
You are free to choose a life to live
Or one that's left to lose.

The talisman
When I stand and look
About the port
And contemplate my life, will I
Ever see my countrymen again?
As the captain calls us on the deck
I take my things and walk
To the harbourside, I glance back
One last time.

Fleeing our nation, our problems
We leave behind.
Ships by the tenfold sail
Out on the tide.
We are pleased to be out and
Embracing the open sea.
Free from our troubles
And more free from thee.

Inheritors unfulfilled reason
Behind us.
We flee from what is not what
Is will be.
We flee the earth and face our
Harsh reality.
Will death be low mist that
Hangs on the sea?

We run from the evil tongues, rash
Judgements, selfish men.
Never to be seen on these
Shores again.

As we sail into oceansize
And lose sight of land
A face of contentment
Around in the air.
We're off now to
Seek all our fortunes.
To the land of our dreams.

Riding the waves and the storm
Is upon us.
The winds lash the sails but
The ropes keep them tight.
Off in the distance a dark cloud
Approaching.
None could imagine what there
Was to come.
No, there's no one going back.
No, there's not a second chance.
As we strap onto the side
We pray to God that we don't die.

As we ride the rough seas,
As we soak from the ocean waves,
I just hope for all our lives
And pray that I survive.

Four ships are lost in the
Stormy conditions.

The spirits of the sunken crews,
Their phantoms follow us.

Spirits, sails, they drive us on
Through the all consuming waves.
Cold mortality, no weapon
Against these ever raging seas.

Four leagues and ten and we
Hit storms again.
We just can't get away from
The eye of the storm.

The birds outsoar the raging storm
But we cannot escape it.
Abandoned earth that we
Now crave
Is many leagues from safe.

Holding on for our dear lives
And we're praying once again.
Rotten luck or just jonahed?
The talisman is in my hand.

Limbs fatigued, trembling with cold.
Blinded from the sea spray salt.
Clasping anything we can hold.
Heaven's rain upon us falls.

Twenty days without a meal
And ten without fresh water still.
Those that didn't die in storms
The scurvy rest did slaughter.

Westward the tide.
Westward we sail on.
Westward the tide.
Sail by the talisman.

We approach the other side
Of the ocean with the tide
In our favour just for once.
Welcome greeting, our new land.
The elation in our hearts,
The excitement in our veins
As we sail towards the coastline
Of our golden promised land.

Weary limbs fatigued away.
I have no life left in me.
No more strength and nothing
Left to give.
Must find the will to live.

Never thought that we could
Make it.
Truly sight of shores divine.
The sickness I am dying from.
Never wanted it to end this way.

Westward the tide.
Westward we sail on.
Westward the tide.
Sail by the talisman.

Westward the tide.
Westward we sail on.
Westward the tide.
Sail by the talisman.

The man who would be king
As he travels on the beast of Burden
Moving up along the mountain side
As he gazes looking down the valley
No regrets but his pride

As he journeys across mountain passes
And significant sweeps overhand
His reflection of the beauty around him
Feeling empty inside

He is running from his wildest thoughts
He is running from his everything
He is looking now to find something
Hoping he could be saved

He's searching for the answer now
Is something that he's managed to avoid up
until now
Looking for the conviction that he craves
He needs to find the answer sooner or later

Pushed himself to the limits
He had to strife for all the harder things in
life
But what the cost to give him now
His life and time is the only things that he
has

Life is is not a rehearsal, only has this the
one chance to get it right
Living really is only way to know
Maybe one day they'll forgive him what he's
done
with all the pain of lying too early in the
grave

Destiny, no good to hide away
Hear us now, we'll be his only way
Understand, no good to run away
Hear us now, we'll be his saving grace

(solo)

Just to make his peace with God
All is forgivable but he's left a little late
Trying something that he's not
Is impossible to change such a lot

He's taken someone's life away
There's not a day that goes by he regrets what
he's done
He should have found another way
But the good book says an eye for an eye

In reflecting on decisions that were made
On the judgements that will haunt him 'till his
grave
No-one has the right to take another life
But in his mind he had no choice so be it

Destiny, no good to hide away
Hear us now, we'll be his only way
understand , no good to run away
Hear us now, we'll be his saving grace
Destiny, no good to hide away
Hear us now, we'll be his only way
understand, no place to run away
Hear us now, we'll be his saving grace

Far, far away
The man who would be king
Far, far away
The man who would be king
So far away
The man who would be king
So far away
The man who would be king
Far, far away
The man who would be king

When the wild wind blows
Have you heard what they said on the news
today?
Have you heard what is coming to us all?
That the world as we know, it will be coming to
an end
Have you heard, have you heard?

He sees them in the distance when the darkened
clouds roll
He could feel tension in the atmosphere
He would look in the mirror, see an old man now
Does it matter they survive somehow?

They said there's nothing can be done about the
situation
They said there's nothing you can do at all
To sit and wait around for something to occur
Did you know, did you know?

As he stares across the garden looking at the
meadows
Wonders if they'll ever grow again
The desperation of the situation getting graver
Getting ready when the wild wind blows

Have you seen what they said on the news today?
Have you heard what they said about us all?
Do you know what is happening to just every one
of us
Have you heard, have you heard?

There will be a catastrophe, the like we've
never seen
There will be something that will light the sky
That the world as we know it, it will never be
the same
Did you know, did you know?

He carries everything into the shelter, not a
fuss
Getting ready when the moment comes
He has enough supplies to last them for a year
or two
Good to have because you never know

They tell us nothing that we don't already know
about
They tell us nothing that is real at all
They only fill us with the stuff that they want
Did you know, did you know?

He's nearly finished with the preparations for
the day
He's getting tired, that'll do for now
They are preparing for the very worst to come
to them
Getting ready when the wild wind blows

He sees the picture on the wall
It's falling down, upside down
He sees a teardrop from his wife
Roll down her face, saying grace

Remember times they had
They flash right through his mind, left behind
Of a lifetime spent together
Long ago will be gone

They've been preparing for some weeks now
For when the crucial moment comes
To take their refuge in the shelter
Let them prepare for what will come

They make a tea and sit there waiting
They're in the shelter feeling snug
Not long to wait for absolution
Don't make a fuss, just sit and wait

Can't believe all the lying
All the screams are denying
That the moments of truth
Have begun

Can't you see it on the TV?
Don't believe them in the least bit
Now the days of our ending
Have begun

Say a prayer when it's all over
Survivors unite, all as one
Got to try and help each other
Got the will to overcome

I can't believe all the lying
All the screens are denying
That the moments of truth
Have begun

Can't you see it on the TV?
Don't believe them in the least bit
Now the days of our ending
Have begun

When they found them
Had their arms wrapped around each other
Their tins of poison laying
Nearby their clothes

The day they both mistook an earthquake
For the fallout
Just another
When the wild wind blows
