The Number Of The Beast (Live In Los Angeles 19/2/08) - Iron Maiden (鐵娘子)

Written by:Steve Harris

I left alone


My mind was blank


I needed time to think to get the

Memories from my mind


What did I see


Can I believe


That what I saw

That night was real and not just fantasy


Just what I saw


In my old dreams


Were they reflections of my warped mind staring

Back at me


'Cos in my dreams


It's always there


The evil face that twists my mind

And brings me to despair


The night was black was no use holding back

'Cos I just had to see was someone watching me


In the mist dark figures move and twist

Was all this for real or just some kind of hell




The number of the beast


Hell and fire was spawned to be released


Torches blazed and sacred

Chants were praised

As they start to cry hands held to the sky

In the night the fires burning bright

The ritual has begun satan's work is done




The number of the beast


Sacrifice is going on tonight


This can't go on I must can fall the law

Can this still be real I just some crazy dream


But I feel drawn towards the evil

Chanting hordes

They seem to mesmerise me can't avoid their eyes



The number of the beast




The one for you and me


I'm coming back


I will return


And I'll possess your body and

I'll make you burn


I have the fire


I have the force


I have the power to make my evil take it's course
