The Number Of The Beast

Iron Maiden2006年8月14日

Woe to you oh earth and sea

For the devil sends the beast with wrath

Because he knows the time is short


Let him who hath understanding

Reckon the number of the beast

For it is a human number

Its number is six hundred and sixty six


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


Cause 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


Cause I just had to see was someone watching me


In the mist dark figures move and twist

Was all this for real or some kind of hell


666 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


666 the number of the beast

Sacrifice is going on tonight


This can't go on I must inform the law


Can this still be real or just some crazy dream


But I feel drawn towards the evil chanting hordes

They seem to mesmerise me can't avoid their eyes


666 the number of the beast


666 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
