If your circle stays unbroken, then you’re a lucky man
Because it never never never has for me.
In the palace of the virgin lies the chalice of your soul
And it’s likely you will find the answer there.
As I’ve been treating you all to my latest literary work, thank you all for the ‘Likes’ and feedback, I haven’t been posting song lyrics. So, now you’ve read my recent work, here’s a quote from Iron Maiden lead singer Bruce Dickinson. The song is “Born in 58” from his solo album, “Tattooed Millionaire.”
Justice and liberty, you can buy but you don’t get free
In this world of steel and glass, we bury our past.
Taught by the powers that preach over me,
I can hear their empty reasons
I wouldn’t listen, I’ve learned how to fight
I’ve opened up my mind to treason
But just like the wounded and when it’s too late
They’ll remember, they’ll surrender
Never a care for people who hate
Underestimate me now
But a shot in the dark, one step away from you
Just a shot in the dark, nothing you can do
Just a shot in the dark, always creeping up on you.
Voices, a thousand thousand voices
Whispering, the time has passed for their choices.
Golden days are passing over, yeah
I can’t seem to see you baby
Although my eyes are open wide
But I know I’ll see you once more
When I see you, I’ll see you on the other side.
Heirs of a cold war, that’s what we’ve become
Inheriting troubles, I’m mentally numb
Crazy, I just cannot bear
I’m living with something that just isn’t fair
Mental wounds not healing, who and what’s to blame
I’m going off the rails on a crazy train.
Ozzy will be headlining Download next Sunday, so you’ll get more of his lyrics in the next week.
But I’m not a slave to a God that doesn’t exist
I’m not a slave to a world that doesn’t give a shit
And when we were good, you just closed your eyes
So when we are bad, we’ll just scar your minds
Fight fight fight fight fight fight fight fight
Maybe he’ll play this one at Download. His live show is supposed to be spectacular, I can’t wait to see for myself.
My only is to take many lives,
the more the better I feel
My only pleasure is to hear many cries,
From those tortured from my steel.
The colour of you blood from your open body
Is all I wanted to see.
Tasting the blood from your lips as you die
Means satisfaction to me, pleasure to kill
These lyrics in no way justify or encourage anyone to take up a weapon and kill another human being. It’s just this is my all time favourite song from German thrash band Kreator and I’ll be very disappointed it they don’t play it when I see them at Download in two weeks. However, I wouldn’t be surprised if the fundamentalists Christians in America use these lyrics to say they drove the next mass shooter to commit his atrocity.
It really doesn’t matter
Don’t go and throw it all away.
Cause we[re one step from paradise,
So close but still so far away
We’re just one step from paradise,
Together we’ll find paradise one day.
Those who follow my other 80smetalman’s Blog will get to hear this song in its entirety.
