Iron maiden

The reincarnation of benjamin breeg
The reincarnation of benjamin breeg
bbcode
the reincarnation of benjamin breeg
hallowed be thy name
the reincarnation of benjamin breeg
let me tell you about my life
let me tell you about my dreams
let me tell you about the things that happened
always real to me

let me tell you of my hope
of my need to reach the sky
let me take you on an awkward journey
let me tell you why

let me tell you why

why should these curses be laid upon me?
i won't be forgiven 'till i can break free
what did i do to deserve all this guilt?
paid for my sins for the sale of my soul

demons are trapped all inside of my head
my hopes have gone, i reach for heaven from hell
my sins are many, my guilt is too heavy
the pressure of knowing, of having what i know

i'm able to see things, things i don't want to see
the lives of a thousand souls, weighing down on me
i know they're crying for help, reaching out
the burden of them will take me down as well

the sin of a thousand souls not died in vain
reincarnates to let me live again

chorus: (x2)
someone to save me
something to save me from myself
to bring salvation
to exorcise this hell

2nd chorus:
someone to save me
something to save me from my hell
i taste damnation
awake from this nightmare

chorus:
someone to save me
something to save me from myself
to bring salvation
to exorcise this hell

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.
