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
