Be Quick Or Be Dead [3:21] (Dickinson, Gers)

Covered in sinners and dripping with gilt
Making your money from slime and from filth
Parading your bellies in ivory towers
Investing our lives in your schemes and your powers

You got to watch them – Be quick or be dead
Snake eyes in heaven – The thief in your head
You’ve got to watch them – Be quick or be dead
Snake eyes in heaven – The thief in your head…
Be quick! Or be dead!
Be quick! Or be dead!

See… what’s ruling all our lives
See… who’s pulling the strings…
See… what’s ruling all our lives
See… who pulls the strings…
I bet you won’t fall on your face
Your belly will hold you in place

The serpent is crawling inside of your ear
He says you must vote for what you want to hear
Don’t matter what’s wrong as long as you’re alright
So pull yourself stupid and rub yourself blind

You got to watch them – Be quick or be dead
Snake eyes in heaven – The thief in your head
You’ve got to watch them – Be quick or be dead
Snake eyes in heaven – The thief in your head…
Be quick! Or be dead!
Be quick! Or be dead!

(2:28 – Solo: Janick Gers)
(2:44 – Solo: Dave Murray)

You got to watch them – Be quick or be dead
Snake eyes in heaven – The thief in your head
You’ve got to watch them – Be quick or be dead
Snake eyes in heaven – The thief in your head…
Be quick! Or be dead!
Be quick!

From Here To Eternity [3:35] (Harris)

She fell in love with his greasy machine
She leaned over wiped his kickstart clean
She’d never seen the beast before
But she left there wanting more more more
But when she was walking on down the road
She heard a sound that made her heart explode
He whispered to her to get on the back
“I’ll take you on a ride from here to eternity”

Hell ain’t a bad place, hell is from here to eternity
Hell ain’t a bad place, hell is from here to eternity

She must be having one of her crazy dreams
She’d never sat on a piece so mean
It made her feel like’s she’s on cloud nine
She even thought she heard the engine sigh
But like all dreams that come to an end
They took a tumble at the devil’s bend
The beast and Charlotte they were two of a kind
They’d always take the line… from here to eternity

Hell ain’t a bad place, hell is from here to eternity
Hell ain’t a bad place, hell is from here to eternity

(2:16 – Solo: Dave Murray)
(2:28 – Solo: Janick Gers)

Hell ain’t a bad place, hell is from here to eternity
Hell ain’t a bad place, hell is from here to eternity

Afraid To Shoot Strangers [6:52] (Harris)

Lying awake at night I wipe the sweat from my brow
But it’s not the fear ’cause I’d rather go now
Trying to visualise the horrors that will lay ahead
The desert sand mound a burial ground

When it comes to the time, are we partners in crime?
When it comes to the time, we’ll be ready to die

God let us go now and finish what’s to be done
Thy Kingdom come, thy shall be done… on Earth

Trying to justify to ourselves the reasons to go
Should we live and let live, forget or forgive?

But how can we let them go on this way?
The reign of terror corruption must end
And we know deep down there’s no other way
No trust, no reasoning, no more to say

(4:01 – Solo: Janick Gers)

Afraid, afraid to shoot strangers
Afraid, afraid to shoot strangers
Afraid, afraid to shoot strangers
Afraid, afraid to shoot strangers
Afraid, afraid to shoot strangers
Afraid, afraid to shoot strangers

(5:25 – Solo: Dave Murray)

Afraid to shoot strangers
Afraid to shoot strangers
Afraid to shoot strangers
Afraid to shoot strangers

Fear Is The Key [5:30] (Dickinson, Gers)

We live our lives in fever, in a choking sweat of fear
In the heat of the night you can feel so much
In the heat of the night I scream “Don’t touch!”

I remember a time when we used and abused
We fought all our battles in vain
I remember a time we thought that passion was free
In the heat of the night… bodies aflame
We live in fever…

I hear your secret heartbeat I can hear your silent cries
The kids have lost their freedom and nobody cares ’til somebody famous dies

I remember a time when we used and abused
We fought all our battles in vain
I remember a time we thought that passion was free
In the heat of the night… bodies aflame

Now we live in a world of uncertainty
Fear is the key – to what you want to be
You don’t get a say the majority gets its way
You’re outnumbered by the bastards ’til the day you die

I hear your secret heartbeat, I can hear your silent cries
Oh, it gets to lies and lies
The kids have lost their freedom and nobody cares ’til somebody famous dies
They’re telling lies and lies and lies and lies and lies…

I remember a time when we used and abused
Ah, it was just lies
I remember a time we thought that passion was free
But it was just lies and lies and lies and lies and lies
In the night, ooh

(4:27 – Solo: Janick Gers)

We live in fever, we live in fever, we live in fever

Now we live in a world of uncertainty
Fear is the key – to what you want to be
You don’t get a say the majority gets its way
You’re outnumbered by the bastards ’til the day you die

Childhood’s End [4:37] (Harris)

I’d sail across the ocean, I’d walk a hundred miles
If I could make it to the end oh just to see a smile
You see it in their faces, the sadness in their tears
The desperation and the anger, madness and the fear

No hope, no life, just pain and fear
No food, no love, just greed is here

Starvation and the hunger, the suffering and the pain
The agonies of all-out war, when will it ever end?
The struggle for the power, a tyrant tries again
Just what the hell is going on? When will it ever end?

No hope, no life, just pain and fear
No food, no love, just greed is here

(2:46 – Solo: Janick Gers)
(3:04 – Solo: Dave Murray)

You see the full moon float, you watch the red sun rise
We take these things for granted but somewhere someone’s dying
Contaminated waters, pollution and decay
Just waiting for disease to strike oh will we learn someday?

No hope, no life, just pain and fear
No food, no love, no seed… Childhood’s end!

 

Wasting Love [5:46] (Dickinson, Gers)

Maybe one day I’ll be an honest man
Up till now I’m doing the best I can
Long roads, long days of sunrise to sunset, sunrise to sunset
Dream on brother while you can,
Dream on sister, I hope you find the one
All of our lives, covered up quickly by the tides of time

Spend your days full of emptiness, spend your years full of loneliness
Wasting love in a desperate caress, rolling shadows of nights

Dream on brother while you can,
Dream on sister, I hope you find the one
All of our lives, covered up quickly by the tides of time
Sands are flowing and the lines are in your hand
In your eyes I see the hunger and the desperate cry that tears the night

Spend your days full of emptiness, spend your years full of loneliness
Wasting love in a desperate caress, rolling shadows of nights

(4:18 – Solo: Janick Gers)

Spend your days full of emptiness, spend your years full of loneliness
Wasting love in a desperate caress, rolling shadows of nights

Spend your days full of emptiness, spend your years full of loneliness
Wasting love in a desperate caress, rolling shadows of nights

 

The Fugitive [4:52] (Harris)

On a cold October morning as frost lay on the ground
Waiting to make my move I make no sound
Waiting for the mist to cover all around
I carefully picked my time then took the wall

I’m sick and tired of running, the hunger and the pain
A stop to look about then off again
Being at the wrong place and at the wrong time
Suspected of a hit that was my crime

I am a fugitive being hunted down like game
I am a fugitive but I’ve got to clear my name
I am a fugitive being hunted down like game
I am a fugitive but I’ve got to clear my name

Always looking ’round me forever looking back
I’ll always be a target for attack
Ever moving onward, always on the run
Waiting for the sight of a loaded gun

I am a fugitive being hunted down like game
I am a fugitive but I’ve got to clear my name
I am a fugitive being hunted down like game
I am a fugitive but I’ve got to clear my name

(2:46 – Solo: Janick Gers)
(3:48 – Solo: Dave Murray)

Even if I find them and get to clear my name
I know that things can never be the same
But if I ever prove my innocence some day
I’ve got to get them all to make them pay

I am a fugitive being hunted down like game
I am a fugitive but I’ve got to clear my name
I am a fugitive being hunted down like game
I am a fugitive but I’ve got to clear my name

 

Chains Of Misery [3:33] (Dickinson, Murray)

There’s a madman in the corner of your eye
He likes to pry – into your sunlight
He wants to burst into the street with you and I
A world of shadows and of rain
He’s seen what love is… he wants to pay you back with guilt

He lies to you – he won’t let you be
He’s got your chains of misery
He won’t be still till he’s turned your key
He holds your chains of misery
Yeah yeah, he’s got your chains of misery

There’s a prophet in the gutter in the street
He says “You’re damned!” – and you believe him…
He’s got a vision but it shines out through your eyes
A world of hatred and fear…
He’s felt what love means… he wants to pay you back with pain

He lies to you – he won’t let you be
He’s got your chains of misery
He won’t be still till he’s turned your key
He holds your chains of misery
He lies to you he won’t let you be
He’s got your chains of misery
He won’t be still till he’s turned your key
He holds your chains of misery

It’s only love that holds the key to our hearts…
It’s only love…

(2:19 – Solo: Dave Murray)

He lies to you he won’t let you be
He’s got your chains of misery
He won’t be still till he’s turned your key
He holds your chains of misery
He lies to you he won’t let you be
He’s got your chains of misery
He won’t be still till he’s turned your key
He holds your chains of misery

The Apparition [3:53] (Harris, Gers)

Now I’m here can you see me? ‘Cause I’m out on my own
When the room goes cold tell me you can feel me
…’cause I’m here

Here I am can you see me? Passing through on my way
To a place I’d been to only in my dreams
…before

In a world of delusion never turn your back on a friend
‘Cause you can count your real true friends on one hand
…through life

There are those that deceive you, there are those that’ll let you down
Is there someone out there that would die for you?
…thought not

Live your life with a passion, everything you do, do well
You only get out of life what you put in
…so they say

In a world of confusion, people never say what they mean
If you want a straight answer go look for one
…right now

In a room full of strangers do you stand with your back to the wall
Do you sometimes feel like you’re on the outside
…looking in?

You can make your own luck, you create your destiny
I believe you have the power if you want to
…it’s true

(1:38 – Solo: Janick Gers)
(1:57 – Solo: Dave Murray)
(2:06 – Solo: Janick Gers)

You can do what you want to if you try a little bit harder
A little bit of faith goes a long way
…it does

Are we here for a reason? I’d like to know just what you think
It would be nice to know what happens when we die
…wouldn’t it?

There are some who are wise, there are some who are born naive
I believe that there are some that must have lived before
…don’t you?

As for me well I’m thinking you gotta keep an open mind
But I hope that my life’s not an open and shut case

Extra sensory perception, life after death, telepathy
Can the soul live on and travel through space and time?

You know I feel so elated ’cause I’m about to find it out
And when I know all the answers maybe I’ll come back
…to fill you in

You don’t be alarmed now if I try to contact you
If things go missing or get moved around
…it’s me

And don’t disbelieve it no matter what your “friends” might say
We’ll meet up again some place, some way
…one day

 

Judas Be My Guide [3:06] (Dickinson, Murray)

(0:16 – Solo: Dave Murray)

Lights out – We live in a world of darkness
No doubt – Everything’s up for sale
We sleep – All of the world is burning
We pray – To god for a better deal

Nothing is sacred – Back then or now
Everything’s wasted, is that all there is?
Can I go now?

Judas my guide, whispers in the night
Judas my guide

Fight wars – Die in a blaze of glory
Come home – Meat in a plastic sack
Fall down – Better pray to your god for mercy
So kneel – And help the blade cut clean

Nothing is sacred – Back then or now
Everyone’s wasted, is that all there is?
Is that it now?

Judas my guide, whispers in the night
Judas my guide
Judas my guide, whispers in the night
Judas my guide

I live in the black I have no guiding light
I’m whispering in your dreams…

(2:14 – Solo: Dave Murray)

Judas my guide, whispers in the night
Judas my guide
Judas my guide, whispers in the night
Judas my guide

Weekend Warrior [5:37] (Harris, Gers)

The rebel of yesterday, tomorrow’s fool
Who are you kidding being that cool?
Trying to break away from running with the pack
But they ain’t listening so you’ve gotta go back
You’re a weekend warrior when you’re one of the crowd
But it’s over, just look at you now…

You’re not so brave the way you behave
It makes you sick, gotta get out quick
It’s all bravado when you’re out with your mates
It’s like a different person goes through those gates
And the game begins, the adrenaline’s high
Feel the tension maybe someone will die…

A weekend warrior lately, a weekend warrior sometimes
A weekend warrior maybe you ain’t that way anymore
A weekend warrior lately, a weekend warrior sometimes
A weekend warrior maybe you ain’t that way anymore

You’ve gotta get out gotta get away
But you’re in with a clique it’s not easy to stray
You’ve gotta admit you’re just living a lie
It didn’t take long to work out why
It’s hard to say why you got involved
Just wanting to be part, just wanting to belong…

A weekend warrior lately, a weekend warrior sometimes
A weekend warrior maybe you ain’t that way anymore
A weekend warrior lately, a weekend warrior sometimes
A weekend warrior maybe you ain’t that way anymore

(2:59 – Solo: Dave Murray)
(3:54 – Solo: Janick Gers)

Some of the things you’ve done, you feel so ashamed, after all it’s only a game… isn’t it?
And after all the adrenaline’s gone what you gonna do on Monday….

A weekend warrior lately, a weekend warrior sometimes
A weekend warrior maybe you ain’t that way anymore
A weekend warrior lately, a weekend warrior sometimes
A weekend warrior maybe you were never like that at all

Fear Of The Dark [7:16] (Harris)

I am a man who walks alone
And when I’m walking a dark road
At night or strolling through the park
When the light begins to change
I sometimes feel a little strange
A little anxious when it’s dark

Fear of the dark, fear of the dark
I have a constant fear that something’s always near
Fear of the dark, fear of the dark
I have a phobia that someone’s always there

Have you run your fingers down the wall
And have you felt your neck skin crawl
When you’re searching for the light?
Sometimes when you’re scared to take a look
At the corner of the room
You’ve sensed that something’s watching you

Fear of the dark, fear of the dark
I have a constant fear that something’s always near
Fear of the dark, fear of the dark
I have a phobia that someone’s always there

Have you ever been alone at night
Thought you heard footsteps behind
And turned around and no-one’s there?
And as you quicken up your pace
You find it hard to look again
Because you’re sure there’s someone there

Fear of the dark, fear of the dark
I have a constant fear that something’s always near
Fear of the dark, fear of the dark
I have a phobia that someone’s always there

(4:09 – Solo: Janick Gers)
(4:26 – Solo: Dave Murray)

Fear of the dark, fear of the dark
Fear of the dark, fear of the dark
Fear of the dark, fear of the dark
Fear of the dark, fear of the dark

Watching horror films the night before
Debating witches and folklore
The unknown troubles on your mind
Maybe your mind is playing tricks
You sense and suddenly eyes fix
On dancing shadows from behind

Fear of the dark, fear of the dark
I have a constant fear that something’s always near
Fear of the dark, fear of the dark
I have a phobia that someone’s always there

When I’m walking a dark road, I am a man who walks alone…
