The Red And The Black (紅與黑) - Iron Maiden (鐵娘子)

The morals of life and the perils of death

Take the wrong way out running out of breath

Meet my match in the afterlife

Suppress the demons that plague the night

A tortured mind is a safe place to go

But the truth lurks down in the dark below

Step inside my inquisitive mind

Are you scared at what you just might find

 

See myself in the hall of mirrors

A different shape every step I take

A different mind every step of the line

But in the end they are all mine

Laughing sorrow inside your head

Can't get out just a feeling of dread

I know this burden is a heavy load

A dark mistake never ending road

 

The black jack king and the red queen clash

 

The artful dodger he counts his stash

 

The joker's wild like an impish child

 

While madame fortune she waits inside

 

The good luck charm is overkill

 

The tired old soldier says fire at will

 

Planes overhead go search destroy

 

The ones below human decoy

 

I need somebody to save me

 

Meanwhile we play the waiting game

 

The clock is struck the horse is lame

 

And when we think that this is done

 

Chance your luck a four leafed one

 

You hedge your bets the battle lost

 

To wait in vain and count the cost

 

The thin edged line

Between good and bad

 

And cast the luck be happy sad

 

I need somebody to save me

 

The red and the black

 

People don't want the truth

Look in their eyes and you send them away

 

The red and the black

 

Fate and hypocrisy

Burden's a heavy load there is no doubt

 

The red and the black

 

All out of luck again

How many chances can anyone have

 

The red and the black

 

Treachery out to win

 

There in the wrong place and at the wrong time

 

I need somebody to save me
