MOONCHILD (SMITH, DICKINSON)  

Seven deadly sins, seven ways to win
Seven holy paths to hell, and your trip begins
Seven downward slopes, seven bloodied hopes
Seven are your burning fires, seven your desires... 
I am he the bornless one, the fallen angel watching you
Babylon, the scarlet whore, I'll infiltrate your gratitude
Don't you dare to save your son, kill him now
and save the young ones
Be the mother of a birth strangled babe,
be the devils own, Lucifer's my name 


Moonchild - hear the mandrake scream
Moonchild - open the seventh seal 
I count the heads of those unborn,
the accursed ones I'll find them all
If you die by your own hand, as a
suicide you shall be damned
And if you try to save your soul,
I will torment you - you shall not grow old
With every second and passing breath,
you'll be so alone your soul will bleed to death 


Moonchild - hear the mandrake scream
Moonchild - open the seventh seal
Moonchild - you'll be mine soon child
Moonchild - take my hand tonight 
The twins they are exhausted, seven is this night
Gemini is rising as the red lips kiss to bite
Seven angels seven demons battle for his soul
When Gabriel lies sleeping, this child was born to die 

(3:38-Solo: Adrian Smith)
(4:07-Solo: Dave Murray) 

One more dies and one more lives,
one baby cries one mother grieves
For all the sins you will commit,
you'll beg forgiveness and none I'll give
A web of fear shall be your coat,
to clothe you in the night
A lucky escape for now young man,
but I'll see you damned in endless night 


Moonchild - hear the mandrake scream
Moonchild - open the seventh seal
Moonchild - you'll be mine soon child
Moonchild - take my hand tonight 


INFINITE DREAMS (HARRIS)  

Infinite dreams I can't deny them,
infinity is hard to comprehend
I couldn't hear those screams, even
in my wildest dreams
Suffocation waking in a sweat, scared
to fall asleep again
In case the dream begins again 
Someone chasing I cannot move,
standing rigid nightmare's statue
What a dream when will it end,
and will I transcend?
Restless sleep the minds in turmoil,
one nightmare ends another fertile
Getting to me so scared to sleep,
but scared to wake now, in too deep 

Even though its reached new heights,
I rather like the restless nights
It makes me wonder it makes me think
there's more to this I'm on the brink
It's not the fear of what's beyond,
It's just that I might not respond
I have an interest almost craving,
but would I like to get too far in? 

It can't all be coincidence,
too many things are evident
You tell me you're an unbeliever, spiritualist?
Well me I'm neither
But wouldn't you like to know the truth of what's
out there to have the proof
And find out just which side you're on,
where would you end in heaven or in hell? 

Help me, help me to find my true self
without seeing the future
Save me, save me from torturing myself
even within my dreams

(4:39-Solo: Dave Murray)
(4:51-Solo: Adrian Smith) 

There's got to be just more to it than this,
or tell me why do we exist?
I'd like to think that when I die I'd get a chance another time
And to return and live again, reincarnate, play the game
Again and again and again and again 



CAN I PLAY WITH MADNESS (SMITH, DICKINSON, HARRIS)  

Can I play with madness 
Give me the sense to wonder, to wonder if I'm free
Give me a sense of wonder, to know I can be me
Give me the strength to hold my head up, spit
back in their face
Don't need no key to unlock this door, gonna
break down the walls
Break out of this bad place 


Can I play with madness
- the prophet stared at his crystal ball
Can I play with madness
- there's no vision there at all
Can I play with madness
- the prophet looked and he laughed at me
Can I play with madness
- he said you're blind
too blind too see 
I screamed aloud to the old man,
I said don't lie don't say you don't know
I say you'll pay for your
mischief in this world or the next
Oh and then he fixed me with a freezing
glance, and the hell fires raged in his eyes
He said do you want to know the truth son
- I'll tell you the truth
Your soul's gonna burn in a lake of fire 


Can I play with madness - the prophet stared
at his crystal ball
Can I play with madness - there's no vision
there at all
Can I play with madness - the prophet looked
and he laughed at me
Can I play with madness - he said you're
blind too blind too see 
Oh listen to me, said the prophet 

(2:40-Solo: Adrian Smith) 


Can I play with madness - the prophet stared at his crystal ball
Can I play with madness - there's no vision there at all
Can I play with madness - the prophet looked and he laughed at me
Can I play with madness - he said you're blind too blind too see 
Can I play with madness 



THE EVIL THAT MEN DO (SMITH, DICKINSON, HARRIS)  

Love is a razor and I walked the line on that silver blade
Slept in the dust with his daughter,
her eyes red with the slaughter of innocence
But I will pray for her, I will call her name out loud
I would bleed for her, if I could only see her now 
Living on a razor's edge, balancing on a ledge
Living on a razor's edge, balancing on a ledge
Balancing on a ledge, living on a razor's edge
Balancing on a ledge, you know, you know 


The evil that men do lives on and on
The evil that men do lives on and on
The evil that men do lives on and on
The evil that men do lives on and on

Circle of fire my baptism of joy at an end it seems
The seventh lamb slain, the book of life opens before me
And I will pray for you, someday I may return
Don't you cry for me, beyond is where I learn 

Living on a razor's edge, balancing on a ledge
Living on a razor's edge, you know, you know 


The evil that men do lives on and on
The evil that men do lives on and on
The evil that men do lives on and on
The evil that men do lives on and on

(3:15-Solo: Adrian Smith) 

Living on a razor's edge, balancing on a ledge
Living on a razor's edge, you know, you know 


The evil that men do lives on and on
The evil that men do lives on and on
The evil that men do lives on and on
The evil that men do lives on and on
The evil, the evil, the evil that men do
The evil, the evil, the evil that men do



SEVENTH SON OF A SEVENTH SON (HARRIS)  

Here they stand brothers them all, all the
sons divided they'd fall
Here await the birth of the son, the seventh,
the heavenly, the chosen one 
Here the birth from an unbroken line,
born the healer the seventh, his time
Unknowingly blessed and as his life unfolds,
slowly unveiling the power he holds 


Seventh son of a seventh son
Seventh son of a seventh son
Seventh son of a seventh son
Seventh son of a seventh son 
Then they watch the progress he makes, the
Good and the Evil which path will he take
Both of them trying to manipulate the use
of his powers before it's too late 


Seventh son of a seventh son
Seventh son of a seventh son
Seventh son of a seventh son
Seventh son of a seventh son 
Today is born the seventh one, born of woman the seventh son
And he in turn of a seventh son, he has the power to heal
He has the gift of the second sight, he is the chosen one
So it shall be written so it shall be done

THE PROPHECY (MURRAY, HARRIS)  

Now that I know that the right time
has come, my prediction will surely be true
The impending disaster it looms and
the whole of the village is doomed
Why won't you listen to me? Is it so
hard to understand
That I am the real seventh son, your
life or death on me depends
Suffering and pain impending disaster,
souls crying the devil's laughter
I've heard the cry of the seven whistlers,
Lucifer smiles looks and waits 

I'll take your life in my hands, your
fate your fortune's in my visions
Heed what I say and you'll see what will be,
please listen to me 

(2:22-Solo: Dave Murray) 

Now that they see the disaster is done,
now they put all the blame unto me
They feel I brought on a curse, don't
they know that the torment it stays
With me knowing that I walk alone, through
the eyes of the future I see
They don't even know what fear is, don't
they know I'm the one who is cursed 

Purgatory beckons souls lost forever,
life after death or heaven hereafter
Heard the call of the seven whistlers again,

now Lucifer laughs hell awaits 
I had their lives in my hands, their fate
their fortunes in my visions
No one believed in my true prophecy,
and now it's too late 



THE CLAIRVOYANT (HARRIS)  

Feel the sweat break on my brow, is it
me or is it shadows that are dancing on the walls
Is this a dream or is it now, is this a
vision or normality I see before my eyes
I wonder why I wonder how, that it seems
the powers getting stronger every day
I feel a strength an inner fire, but I'm
scared I won't be able to control it anymore 


There's a time to live and a time to die,
when it's time to meet the maker
There's a time to live but isn't it strange
that as soon as you're born you're dying
There's a time to live and a time to die,
when it's time to meet the maker
There's a time to live but isn't it strange
that as soon as you're born you're dying 
(2:30-Solo: Dave Murray) 

Just by looking in through your eyes,
he could see the future penetrating right in through your mind
See the truth and see your lies, but for
all his power couldn't foresee his own demise 


There's a time to live and a time to die,
when it's time to meet the maker
There's a time to live but isn't it strange
that as soon as you're born you're dying
There's a time to live and a time to die,
when it's time to meet the maker
There's a time to live but isn't it strange
that as soon as you're born you're dying....
....and reborn again? 


ONLY THE GOOD DIE YOUNG (HARRIS, DICKINSON)  

The demon in your mind will rape you in your bed at night
The wisdom of ages, the lies and outrages concealed
Time it waits for no man, my future is revealed
Time it waits for no man, my fate is sealed 
If I cancel tomorrow the undead will thank me today
Fly in the face of your prophets I mock your morality plays
The moon is red and bleeding, the sun is burned and black
The book of life is silent, no turning back 


Only the good die young - all the evil seem to live forever
Only the good die young - all the evil seem to live forever
Only the good die young
Only the good die young 
(1:29-Solo: Adrian Smith)
(1:51-Solo: Steve Harris) 

Mystery madman a victim of cruel charade
Some innocent pawn in an end game one more stalemate
Is death another birthday, a way to kiss your dreams goodbye?
Do the undead live within us and look through our eyes? 

Walking on water are miracles all you can trust
Measure your coffin does it measure up to your lust?
So I think I'll leave you with your bishops and your guilt
So until the next time, have a good sin 


Only the good die young - all the evil seem to live forever
Only the good die young - all the evil seem to live forever
Only the good die young
Only the good die young 
(3:32-Solo: Dave Murray) 

Seven deadly sins, seven ways to win
Seven holy paths to hell
Seven downward slopes, seven bloodied hopes
Seven are your burning fires, seven your desires.....
