WHERE EAGLES DARE (HARRIS)  

It's snowing outside the rumbling
sound of engines roar in the night
The mission is near the confident
men are waiting to drop from the sky
The blizzard goes on but still they
must fly, no one should go where eagles dare 
Bavarian alps that lay all around,
they seem to stare from below
The enemy lines a long time passed
are lying deep in the snow
Into the night they fall through the sky,
no one should fly where eagles dare 

(2:11-Solo: Dave Murray)
(2:50-Solo: both together) 

They're closing in the fortress is near,
it's standing high in the sky
The cable car's the only way in,
it's really impossible to climb
They make their way but maybe too
late, they've got to try to save the day 

The panicking cries the roaring of
guns are echoing all round the valley
The mission complete they make to
escape away from the Eagles Nest
They dared to go where no one would
try, they chose to fly where eagles dare 


REVELATIONS (DICKINSON)  

"O God of Earth and Altar, bow down and hear our cry
Our earthly rulers falter, our people drift and die
The walls of gold entomb us, the swords of scorn divide
Take not thy thunder from us, but take away our pride"
(G.K. Chesterton)

Just a babe in a black abyss, no reason
for a place like this
The walls are cold and souls cry out in pain
An easy way for the blind to go, a clever
path for the fools who know
The secret of the hanged man - the smile on his lips 


The light of the blind you'll see, the
venom that tears my spine
The eyes of the Nile are opening you'll see 
She came to me with a serpent's kiss, as
the eye of the sun rose on her lips
Moonlight catches silver tears I cry
So we lay in a black embrace, and the
seed is sown in a holy place
And I watched and I waited for the dawn 


The light of the blind you'll see, the
venom that tears my spine
The eyes of the Nile are opening you'll see. 
(4:22-Solo: Dave Murray)
(4:44-Solo: Adrian Smith) 

Bind all of us together, ablaze with hope and free
No storm or heavy weather will rock the boat you'll see
The time has come to close your eyes and
still the wind and rain
For the one who will be king is the Watcher in the Ring 

It is you, it is you 


FLIGHT OF ICARUS (SMITH, DICKINSON)  

As the sun breaks above the ground,
an old man stands on the hill
As the ground warms to the first rays of light,
a bird song shatters the still
His eyes are ablaze, see the madman in his gaze 

Fly, on your way, like an eagle, fly as high as the sun
On your way, like an eagle, fly and touch the sun 
Now the crowd breaks and a young boy appears,
looks the old man in the eye
As he spreads his wings and shouts at the crowd,
in the name of God my father I'll fly
His eyes seem so glazed as he flies on
the wings of a dream
Now he knows his father betrayed, now
his wings turn to ashes to ashes his grave 


Fly, on your way, like an eagle, fly as high as the sun
On your way, like an eagle, fly as high as the sun 
(1:54-Solo: Dave Murray)
(2:11-Solo: Adrian Smith) 


Fly, on your way, like an eagle, fly as high as the sun
On your way, like an eagle, fly as high
as the sun On your way, like an eagle,
fly toward the sun On your way, like an eagle, fly..... 
(3:19-Solo: Dave Murray) 

Fly as high as the sun 


DIE WITH YOUR BOOTS ON (SMITH, DICKINSON, HARRIS)  

Another prophet of disaster who says the ship is lost
Another prophet of disaster leaving you to count the cost
Taunting us with visions, afflicting us with fear
Predicting war for millions in the hope that one appears 
No point asking when it is, no point asking who's to go
No point asking what's the game, no point asking who's to blame
'Cos if you're gonna die, if you're gonna die,
if you're gonna die 


If you're gonna die, die with your boots on,
If you're gonna try, well stick around
Gonna cry, just move along
If you're gonna die, you're gonna die, gonna die
Die with your boots on, if you're gonna try,
well stick around, gonna cry, just move along
If you're gonna die, you're gonna die 
13 the beast is rising, the Frenchman did surmise
Through earthquakes and starvation, the warlord will arise
Terror death destruction pour from the eastern sands
But the truth of all predictions is always in your hands 

No point asking when it is, no point asking who's to go
No point asking what's the game, no point asking who's to blame
'Cos if you're gonna die, if you're gonna die,
if you're gonna die 


If you're gonna die, die with your boots on
If you're gonna try, well stick around
Gonna cry, just move along
If you're gonna die, you're gonna die, gonna die
Die with your boots on, if you're gonna try
well stick around, gonna cry, just move along
If you're gonna die, you're gonna die 
(3:00-Solo: Dave Murray) 

They die with their boots on, yes they die
They die with their boots on, they die, we die, we die,
we die, we die, we die 

(4:06-Solo: Adrian Smith) 

No point asking when it is, no point asking who's to go
No point asking what's the game, no point asking who's to blame
'Cos if you're gonna die, if you're gonna die,
if you're gonna die 


If you're gonna die, die with your boots on
If you're gonna try, well stick around
Gonna cry, just move along
If you're gonna die, you're gonna die, gonna die
Die with your boots on, if you're gonna try,
well stick around, gonna cry, just move along
If you're gonna die, die! 


THE TROOPER (HARRIS)  

You'll take my life but I'll take yours too,
you'll fire your musket but I'll run you through
So when you're waiting for the next attack,
you'd better stand there's no turning back
The bugle sounds and the charge begins,
but on this battlefield no one wins
The smell of acrid smoke and horses breath,
as I plunge on into certain death 

Ooooooooh! Ooooooooh! 
The horse he sweats with fear we break to run,
the mighty roar of the Russian guns
And as we race toward the human wall,
the screams of pain as my comrades fall
We hurdle bodies that lay on the ground,
and the Russians fire another round
We get so near yet so far away,
we won't live to fight another day 


Ooooooooh! Ooooooooh! 
(2:11-Solo: Adrian Smith)
(2:35-Solo: Dave Murray) 

We get so close near enough to fight,
when a Russian gets me in his sights
He pulls the trigger and I feel the blow,
a burst of rounds take my horse below
And as I lay there gazing at the sky,
my body's numb and my throat is dry
And as I lay forgotten and alone,
without a tear I draw my parting groan 


Ooooooooh! Ooooooooh! 


STILL LIFE (MURRAY, HARRIS)  

(0:14-Solo: Dave Murray) 
Take a look in the pool and what do you see,
in the dark depths their faces beckoning me
Can't you see them it's plain for all to see,
they were there oh I know you don't believe me 


Oh...I've never felt so strange, but...I'm not going insane 
I've no doubt that you think I'm off my head,
you don't say but it's in your eyes instead
Hours I spend out just gazing into that pool,
something draws me there I don't know what to do 


Oh...they drain my strength away,
oh...they're asking me to stay
Nightmares...spirits calling me, nightmares...
they won't leave me be 
All my life's blood is slowly draining away,
and I feel that I'm weaker every day
Somehow I know I haven't long to go joining
them at the bottom of the pool 


Now...I feel they are so near,
I...begin to see them clear
Nightmares...coming all the time, nightmares...
will give me peace of mind 
(3:09-Solo: both together)
(3:21-Solo: Adrian Smith)
(3:46-Solo: Dave Murray) 

Now it's clear and I know what I have to do,
I must take you down there to look at them too
Hand in hand then we'll jump right into that pool,
can't you see not just me they want you too


Oh...we'll drown together, it...will be forever
Nightmares...forever calling me, nightmares...
now we rest in peace 


QUEST FOR FIRE (HARRIS)  

In a time when dinosaurs walked the earth
When the land was swamp and caves were home
In an age when prize possession was fire
To search for landscapes men would roam 
Then the tribes they came to steal the fire
And the wolves they howled into the night
As they fought a vicious angry battle
to save the power of warmth and light 


Drawn by Quest for fire, they searched all through the land
Drawn by Quest for fire, discovery of man 
And they thought that when the embers died away
That the flame of life had burnt and died
Didn't know the sparks that made the fire
Were made by rubbing stick and stone 

So they plowed through forest and swamps of danger
And they fought the cannibal tribes and beasts
In the search to find another fire
To regain the power of light and heat 


Drawn by Quest for fire, they searched across the land
Drawn by Quest for fire, discovery of man 
(2:24-Solo: Adrian Smith)
(2:40-Solo: Dave Murray) 


Drawn by Quest for fire, they searched across the land
Drawn by Quest for fire, discovery of man 


SUN AND STEEL (DICKINSON, SMITH)  

You killed your first man at 13, killer instinct,
animal supreme
By 16 you had learned to fight, the way of the
warrior you took it as your right 

Sunlight, falling on your steel
Death in life is your ideal, life is like a wheel
Sunlight, falling on your steel
Death in life is your ideal, life is like a wheel 
Through earth and water, fire and wind,
you came at last - nothing was the end
Make a cut by fire and stones, take you
and your blade and break you both in two
Break you both in two 


Sunlight, falling on your steel
Death in life is your ideal, life is like a wheel
Sunlight, falling on your steel
Death in life is your ideal, life is
like a wheel - rolling on and on 
(1:52-Solo: both together )
(2:14-Solo: Dave Murray) 


Sunlight, falling on your steel
Death in life is your ideal, life is like a wheel
Sunlight, falling on your steel,
Death in life is your ideal, life is
like a wheel - and it's rolling still 


TO TAME A LAND (HARRIS)  

He is the king of all the land in the
kingdom of the sands of a time tomorrow
He rules the sand worms and the Fremen
in a land amongst the stars of an age tomorrow
He is destined to be a king, he rules
over everything in the land called planet Dune
Bodywater is your life and without
it you would die in the desert of planet Dune 
Without a stillsuit you would fry
on the sands so hot and dry in a world called Arrakis
It is a land that's rich in spice,
the sandriders and the mice that they call the Muad Dib
He is the Kwizatz Hderach,
he is born of Caladan and will take the Gom Jabbar
He has the power to forsee
or to look into the past, he's the ruler of the stars 

The time will come for him to lay claim his crown
And then the foe, yes they'll be cut down
You'll see he'll be the best that there's been
Messiah supreme, true leader of men
And when the time for judgment's at hand
Don't fret he's strong, and he'll make a stand
Against evil the fire that spreads through the land
He has the power to make it all end
