Iron maiden
Won't you come into my room, I wanna show you all my wares.
I just want to see your blood, I just want to stand and stare.
See the blood begin to flow as it falls upon the floor.
Iron Maiden can't be faught, Iron Maiden can't be sought.

Oh Well, wherever, wherever you are,
Iron Maiden's gonna get you, no matter how far.
See the blood flow watching it shed up above my head.
Iron Maiden wants you for dead.

Won't you come into my room, I wanna show you all my wares.
I just want to see your blood, I just want to stand and stare.
See the blood begin to flow as it falls upon the floor.
Iron Maiden can't be faught, Iron Maiden can't be sought.

Oh well, wherever, wherever you are
Iron Maiden's gonna get you, no matter how far
See the blood flow, watching it shed, up above my head
Iron Maiden wants you for dead...

Invasion
The Vikings are coming
You'd better get ready for we're having a fight
The longboats are coming
It's looking like their ? in the dead of the night

Muster the men from all the villages
You'd better get ready to fight with your enemies

Beacons are burning
I'm giving the word to get ready to fight
The battle is nearing
You'd better get ready to fight for your lives

The Norsemen are coming
The Norsemen are coming
The warnings are given
The Norsemen are coming

Raping and pillaging
Robbing and looting the land

Viking raiders from afar

Prowler
Walkin' through the city
Lookin' oh so pretty
I just gotta find my way
See the ladies flashin'
All their legs and lashes
I just gotta find my way

Well, you see me crawlin' through the bushes
With it open wide
What ya seein' girl?
Can you believe that feelin? Can you believe it?
Can you believe your eyes?
It's the real thing girl

Got me feelin' myself and reelin' around
Got me talking, girl, feel like walkin' around
				
top

Drifter
Walk away!

Look out now, baby won't you take me away,
Sittin' here its gonna be a new day.
Gotta sing my song and I can't go wrong,
Gotta keep on roaming, gotta sing my song.

What you feeling when you hold me tight?
I'm gonna cuddle up with you tonight, gonna get you feeling so secure.
listen child don't you see there's a cure?
Anywhere got to get you away, feels so good think it's gonna be a new day.
I'm gonna get my song till I can't go on,
I'm gonna keep on roaming gonna sing my song.

I want you to sing it, sing it, sing it, sing it along.
I want you to sing it, sing it, sing it, sing it along.

Phantom of the opera
I've been looking so long for you now you won't get away from my grasp
. You've been living so long in hiding in hiding behind that false mask.
And you know and I know that you ain't got long now to last.
Your looks and your feelings are just the remains of your past.

You're standing in the wings, there you wait for the curtain to fall.
Knowing the terror and holding you have on us all.
Yeah, I know that you're gonna scratch me, maim me and maul.
You know I'm helpless from your mesmerising cat call.

Keep your distance, walk away, don't take his bait.
Don't you stray, don't fade away.
Watch your step, he's out to get you, come what may.
Don't you stray, from the narrow way.

I'm running and hiding in my dreams you're always there.
You're the Phantom of the Opera, you're the devil, you're just out to scare.
You damaged my mind and my soul it just floats through the air.
Haunt me, you taunt me, you torture me back at your lair.

Innocent exile
My life is so empty, nothing to live for
My mind is all confusion, 'cos I defied the law
When you weren't there to help me, I lost my mind and ran
I never had no trouble before this all began
My life is so empty, nothing to live for
My mind is all confusion, 'cos I defied the law
When you weren't there to help me, I lost my mind and ran
I never had no trouble before this all began
I'm running away, no where to go
I'm lost and tired and I just don't know. Yeah...
They say I killed a woman, they know it isn't true
They're just trying to frame me
and all because of you. Yeah...
				
top

Sanctuary
Out of the route came a warhorse of steel. 
I've never killed a woman before, but I know how it feels. 

I know you'd have gone insane if you saw what I saw. 
So now I've got to look for sanctuary from the law. 
So give me sanctuary from the law and I'll be alright. 
Just give me sanctuary from the law and love me tonight, tonight. 

I met up with a stranger last night to keep me alive. 
He spends all his money on gambling and guns to survive. 

I can laugh at the wind, I can howl at the rain. 
Down in the Canyon or out in the plain.

Running free
Just sixteen, a pickup truck, out of money, out of luck.
I've got nowhere to call my own, hit the gas, and here I go.

I'm running free yeah, I'm running free.
I'm running free yeah, Oh I'm running free.

Spent the night in an L. A. jail, and listened to the sirens wail.
They ain't got a thing on me, I'm running wild, I'm running free.

I'm running free yeah, I'm running free.
I'm running free yeah, Oh I'm running free.

Puller here at the Bottle Top, whiskey, dancing, disco hop.
Now all the boys are after me, and that's the way it's gonna be.

I'm running free yeah, I'm running free.
I'm running free yeah, Oh I'm running free.

Remember tomorrow
Unchain the colours before my eyes,
Yesterday's sorrows tomorrow's white lies
Scan the horizon the clouds take me higher,
I shall return from out of fire
Tears for remembrance and tears for joy,
Tears for somebody and this lonely boy
Out in the madness the all seeing eye
Flickers above us to light up the sky
(Solo: Dave Murray)
(Solo: Dennis Stratton)
Unchain the colours before my eyes,
Yesterday's sorrows tomorrow's white lies
Scan the horizon the clouds take me higher,
I shall return from out of fire
				
top

I've got the fire
If you're looking for someone that you can keep
then, baby, pass me by
And if you wanted something that's twenty years deep
Baby, don't even try
And if you wanted someone to take your soul
I'll lift you up little bit higher

I've got the fire
I've got the fire

SOLO

So you think I'm skinny, don't you sell me cheap
I'm as wide as a country-mile
Some like it wide, I like it deep
Guess which one is my style
So you think you can beat me by my own game
Maybe I call you a liar

I've got the fire
I've got the fire

Killers
You walk through the subway, his eyes burn a hole in your back,
A footstep behind you, he lunges prepared for attack.
Scream for mercy, he laughs as he's watching you bleed,
Killer behind you, his blood lust defies all his needs.

My innocent victims are slaughtered with wrath and despise,
The mocking religion of hatred that burns in the night.
I have no one, I'm bound to destroy all this greed,
A voice inside me compelling to satisfy me.

I can see what a knife's meant to be,
And you'll never know how I came to foresee, see, see.

My faith in believing is stronger than lifelines and ties,
With the glimmer of metal my moment is ready to strike.

Death call arises, a scream breaks the still of the night,
Another tomorrow, remember to walk in the light!
I have found you, and now there is no place to run,
Excitement shakes me, oh God help me what have I done?!
Oh yeah, I've done it!
YEEEEAAAAAAAAHHHH!

You walk through the subway, my eyes burn a hole in your back,
A footstep behind you, he lunges prepared for attack.
Scream for mercy, he laughs as he's watching you bleed,
Killer behind you, my blood lust defies all my needs.
Oh look out, I'm coming for you!
Ahahahaha!
