Rime Of The Ancient Mariner (Live In New Jersey 14/3/08) - Iron Maiden (鐵娘子)

Written by:Steve Harris

Hear the rime of the ancient mariner

See his eye as he stops one of three

Mesmerizes one of the wedding guests

Stay here and listen to the nightmares of the sea

 

And the music plays on as the bride passes by

Caught by his spell and the mariner tells his tale

 

Driven south to the land of the snow and ice

To a place where nobody's been

 

Through the snow fog flies on the albatross

Hailed in God's name hoping good luck it brings

 

And the ships sails on back to the north

Through the fog and ice and the albatross follows on

 

The mariner kills the bird of good omen

 

His shipmates cry against what he's done

 

But when the fog clears they justify him

 

And make themselves a part of the crime

Sailing on and on and north across the sea

 

Sailing on and on and north 'til all is calm

 

The albatross begins with its vengeance

 

A terrible curse a thirst has begun

 

His shipmates blame bad luck on the mariner

 

About his neck the dead bird is hung

And the curse goes on and on and on at sea

 

And the thirst goes on and on for them and me

 

Day after day day after day

We stuck nor breath nor motion

 

As idle as a painted ship upon a painted ocean

 

Water water everywhere and all the boards did shrink

 

Water water everywhere nor any drop to drink

 

There calls the mariner there comes a ship o'er the line

 

But how can she sail with no wind in her sails and no tide

 

See onward she comes

 

Onward she nears out of the sun

 

See she has no crew

 

She has no life wait but there's two

 

Death and she life in death they throw their dice for the crew

 

She wins the mariner and he belongs to her now

 

Then crew one by one they drop down dead two hundred men

 

She she life in death she let's him live her chosen one

 

One after one by the star dogged moon

 

Too quick for groan or sigh

 

Each turned his face with a ghastly pang

 

And cursed me with his eye

 

Four times fifty living men

 

And I heard nor sigh nor groan

 

With heavy thump a lifeless lump

 

They dropped down one by one

 

The curse it lives on in their eyes

 

The mariner he wished he'd die

 

Along with the sea creatures

But they lived on so did he

 

And by the light of the moon

 

He prays for their beauty not doom

 

With heart he blesses them

God's creatures all of them too

 

Then the spell starts to break

 

The albatross falls from his neck

 

Sinks down like lead into the sea

 

Then down in falls comes the rain

 

Hear the groans of the long dead seamen

See them stir and they start to rise

 

Bodies lifted by good spirits

None of them speak and they're lifeless in their eyes

 

And revenge is still sought penance starts again

Cast into a trance and the nightmare carries on

 

Now the curse is finally lifted

 

And the mariner sights his home

 

Spirits go from the long dead bodies

Form their own light and the mariner's left alone

 

And then a boat came sailing towards him

 

It was a joy he could not believe

 

The pilot's boat his son and the hermit

 

Penance of life will fall onto him

And the ship sinks like lead into the sea

 

And the hermit shrieves the mariner of his sins

 

The mariner's bound to tell of his story

 

To tell this tale wherever he goes

 

To teach God's word by his own example

 

That we must love all things that God made

And the wedding guest's a sad and wiser man

 

And the tale goes on and on and on and on
