The Book Of Souls (靈魂之書) - Iron Maiden (鐵娘子)

Sacrifices buried with kings

 

Accompany them on a journey with no end

 

To an afterlife that's rich with fruit of all the gods

 

And to face the demons

Of their underworld haunts

 

The sentient is sent to seek out all the truth

 

A flight to earth that is a given from his birth

 

To rise from ashes of the dead

 

Out of the fire is sent to fulfil man's desire

By power day and night and death he ruled them

The sky and earth and the fires too

 

Two headed reptile symbol of his reign

Universes of the underworld

A life that's full of all the wealth and riches

Can never last for an eternity

 

After living in a golden paradise

The ultimate sacrifice

Prophecy of sky gods the sun and moon

 

Passing of old ways will come true soon

 

Falling of ages forest of kings

 

The search for the truth the book of souls

 

The rulers of planets and stars

 

The power of the kings of traders and the wars

 

Planetary cycles and the phases of the moon

 

Is in the document a kingdom they will learn

They were praying to the gods of nature

And were living in the cities of stone

Towers reaching upward to the heavens

Sacred wonders for the world unknown

Make their lives be a mystery no more

Records kept and the passing of laws

Sacred gods to the book of lies

When a civilization dies

Prophecy of sky gods the sun and moon

 

Passing of old ways will come true soon

 

Falling of ages forest of kings

 

The lost book of souls destruction begins

 

Ascending the throne wearing feathers and shells

 

He brought back their lives from the void

 

Alien invasion brings nothing but death

 

Mass exodus and plant life destroyed

 

Domain of the Earth to the journey of truth

 

The underworld caves Mayan slaves

 

Defeat of the dark Lords

The ultimate proof

 

In the place where the ancestors rule

 

The book of souls
