Iron Maiden Back in the Village Lyrics

Last updated: 02/22/2010 10:00:00 AM

(Adrian Smith/Bruce Dickinson)

Turn the spotlights on the people,
Switch the dial and eat the worm.
Take your chances, kill the engine,
Drop your bombs and let it burn.

White flags shot to ribbons,
The truce is black and burned,
Shellshock in the kitchen,
Tables overturned.

CHORUS
Back in the village again,
In the village.
I'm back in the village again.

Throwing dice now, rolling loaded,
I see sixes all the way.
In a black hole, and I'm spinning
As my wings get shot away.

BRIDGE
Questions are a burden,
And answers a prison for oneself,
Shellshock in the kitchen,
Tables start to burn.

CHORUS

No breaks on the inside,
Paper cats and burning barns,
There's a fox among the chickens,
And a killer in the hounds.

BRIDGE

CHORUS

But still we walk into the valley,
And others try to kill the inner flame,
We're burning brighter than before,
I don't have a number, I'M A NAME!

CHORUS x2

Back in the village,
And I'm back in the village,
And I'm back in the village, again.
