Killer!!
Iron F**kin Maiden!!!!
Luv dis song
MY OPINION THIS is DEFINITELY ONE OF THERE BEST
11:58PM.
\m/
The best show I've been to till today. The world slavery tour. Checked them out in San Antonio opening for maiden w.a.s.p. So long ago
I got to see them in concert with megadeth in Nashville last year they were awesome their stage show Is something ill never forget I would put that concert up against anyone except maybe avenged sevenfold just bc a7x is my favorite band
The title is a reference to the Doomsday Clock. This song is all about the romance of war and how we're all repelled and fascinated by it at the same time.
Go suck a bootu hahahajaj

This isn't about abortion. It's about nuclear weep and killing innocent people, including unborn children... idiots

You are a total f**king idiot.... Live well pal, hopefully no one has ur number
Larry44 retard and the other abortion idiots don't get it. The Japanese bayonetted pregnant women in Nanking China, ergo killing the unborn in the womb. The whole song is about war and atrocities of war. But hey a libtard can try and ruin anything. Morons.
I LOVE this song!!! ...but what is it doing on my brutal death/grind station?
kenyon.m
Yup - that's it. I think the kill the unborn in the womb thing is about nuclear bombs killing everyone. Even those that haven't been born yet.

This song is about world almost coming to the brink of destruction via WWIII. While the U.S. had Defcon 5-1 (1 being nuclear war) the British had a doomsday clock, when the clock struck midnight, armageddon happened. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.
Its the war machine...
josephhaburn e
all of the above f**kin rock-n-roll
jcgregory5
Damn right Terry!
Pointing out the parellels between war and abortion. Atrocities are acceptable if the price is right!
classic
READ
its about how people were about to slaughter a whole race and commit genocide at midnight...
so larry... do you know what those words mean... lol

HELL YEAH
abortion? what the hell? anyways great song iron maiden!
stevens.chri s
what a poon.
um....that time of the month larry444?
oh i get it, it's parody....we l l , it's poor comedy larry, better work on that my friend.
this f*** song ........GREA T ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! !
and, although, this phrase is overused, heads up, it's coming from the heart when I say it!!! this album is truly one of the overlooked classics of all time....even within Maiden's own catalog.
no one could copy these guys- very few tried, and none succeeded.
IMHO, the best "metal" (whatever that means, to whomever) band, ever.

In response to Larry444:

YOU sir are an IDIOT. The lyrics have nothing to do with abortion. Go read a history book one of these days you big dummy.

The song is clearly about WAR and all its implications .
Hardcore! Awesome intro... classic!
beast mode
Wow Lars, rampant education and humor in one fell swoop. And here it was the opening riff that has always caught me with "2 Minutes". The lyrics certainly do have meaning, but thank God ignorance is bliss - I'd be in some serious trouble otherwise...
The lyrics of this song epitomize arrested development and demonstrate a misogynistic perspective entirely too widely held by the neanderthals that inhabit this genre of rock. Abortion is exploited as a throw away tag for lyrics that are calculated to shock and provoke but are just plain lame and offensive.
Like the drive of the beat and Bruce's voice in this song. The guitars also clash and combine well. Slowing the song and then coming back up full steam was cool.
