Lyrics

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

Maiden has to b one of the most talented of all the greats. I'm so glad I grew up listening and getting to c these guys perform no other way to put it but f**kin awesome!! Not like music today some good but not like this..ROCK ON EVERYONE
Oh s**t one of my favorites by them!!!
The galloping meshing of the drums, bass and guitars set the tone for this masterpiece.
nicslager

I would fly on Bruce's plane anytime

Fastway & coney hatch opened
My fav Iron Maiden song \m/
Maiden are so bad a** in every way!!!
hall of fame is a joke without bands like iron maiden!!!!
Their's not to make reply....... . . . . .
1854 The Crimean War. The Battle of Balaclava.
Oh wow Iron maiden made this song
mad respect
Its sad cause not many ppl still listen to iron maiden my age and when my dad first showed me iron maiden, metallica, and AC/DC I started falling in love with heavy Metall when I was 9 And im now13 :)
The hall of fame is joke.. There are so many bands not in that deserve to be in.
What a shame no hall of fame! !!!
Irvine spectrum @ still sound good
Kiss in the hall of fame no iron maiden
The Trooper inspired by the classic poem charge of the light brigade by Alfred Tennyson

Love maiden more intelligent than most bands which enabled them to explore different subjects in their songs they belong in rock and roll hall of fame
Nobody touches the musicality of Iron Maiden
Lol

Up the irons!

I have to add that Peart's lyrics are profound. Profound, prophetic and comteplative . Nobody touches peart on that level. But Harris is the most imaginative without getting pretentious. That is a slightly greater artistic achievement. Peart=suprem e intellectual lyricist- Harris=supre m e imaginative and literary lyricist! We are wise for loving both these great TRUE artists!
Awesome guitar work.

The song that made me fall in love with Maiden.

Hey Travo. What? Yeah. I don't live under a rock, so I "heard" of Peart. Peart writes on a more intellectual level, but Harris writes from imagination. Anyone can talk philosophy and write it. Few can craft stories from imagination. Harris also writes from a literary perspective and is basically a "cliffs notes" for many of the best novels. See 'Rime of the Ancient Mariner'. I love music as art. Philosophy is no art, but story telling is and nobody touches Harris on this art form. Intellectual l
One of my favorite iron maiden songs second only to fear of the dark imo
Hey... Sullivan, what? U never heard of neil peart?? Harris awesome, but peart on an entirely different shelf, lyrically.
sullivan4til e
I also have to add that Harris' brilliant and vived lyrics are PERFECTLY complemented by Dickensons perfect delivery, fiery spirit, and giant his giant balls:D
One of Iron Maiden's best songs next to "Phantom of the Opera" and "Iron Maiden" in my opinion
sullivan4til e
Harris is the best lyricist in rock period. He covers the entire spectrum. From ancient world history, to current events, to politics, good vs. evil, to original brilliant imagination. He writes with great detail and articulation . Nobody comes close.
Metals best years
I love classic metal
This songs makes me want to inject coke into my dick and go around crashing into cop cars
Follow me if you like Metal! \m/
