Iron maiden

The wicker man
The wicker man
bbcode
the wicker man
man on the edge
powerslave
the wicker man
hand of fate is moving and thefinger points to you
he knocks you to your feet and so what are you gonna do
your tongue has frozen now you've got something to say
the piper at the gates of down is calling you his way

you watch the world exploding every single night
dancing in the night a new born in the light
say goodbye to gravity and say goodbye to death
hello to eternity and live for every breath

your time will come
your time will come

the ferry man wants his money you ain't going to give it back
he can push his own boat as you set up of the track
nothing you can contemplate will ever be the same
every second is a new spark, sets the universe aflame

you watch the world exploding every night
dancing in the night a new born in the light
brothers and their fathers joining hands and make a chain
the shadow of the wicker man is rising up again

your time will come
your time will come

man on the edge

live

the freeway is jammed
and it's backed up for miles
the car is an oven and baking is wild
nothing is ever the way it should be
what we deserve we just don't get you see

a briefcase, a lunch and a man on the edge
each step gets closer to losing his head
is someone in heaven are they looking down
'cause nothing is fair just you look around

falling down
falling down
falling down

he's sick of waiting of lying like this
there's a hole in the sky for the angels to kiss
branded a leper because you don't fit
in the land of the free
you can live by your wits

once he built missiles a nation's defense
now he can't even give birthday presents
across the city he leaves in his wake
a glimpse of the future a canibal state

falling down
falling down
falling down

powerslave

live

into the abyss i'll fall-the eye of horus
into the eyes of the night-watching me go
green is the cat's eye that glows-in this temple
enter the risen osiris-risen again.

chorus
tell me why i had to be a powerslave
i don't wanna die, i'm a god, why can't i live on?
when the life giver dies, all around is laid to waste.
and in my last hour,
i'm a slave to the power of death.

when i was living this lie-fear was my game
people would worship and fall-drop to their knees
so bring me the blood and red wine for the one to succeed me
for he is a man and a god-and he will die too.

chorus

now i am cold but a ghost lives in my veins,
silent the terror that reigned-maarbled in stone
shell of a man god preserved-a thousand ages
but open the gates of my hell-i will strike from the grave.

chorus
