Be Quick Or Be Dead Lyrics - Iron Maiden

Review The Song (6)



Covered in sinners and dripping with guilt,
Making you money from slime and from filth...
Parading your bellies in ivory towers,
Investing our lives in your schemes and your powers

You've got to watch them - Be quick or be dead,
Snake eyes in heaven, the beast in your head--!
You've got to watch them - Be quick or be dead,
Snake eyes in heaven, the thief in your head...!
Be quick!
Or be dead!
Be quick! (quick)
Or be DEAD! (dead)

See... what's ruling all our lives...
See... who's pulling strings...
See... what's ruling all our lives
See who holds the strings...!

I bet you won't fall on your face,
Your belly will hold you in place--
..
The serpent is crawling inside of your ear,
He says you must vote for what you want to hear!
Don't matter what's wrong as long as you're alright!
So pull yourself stupid, rob yourself blind!!

You've got to watch them - Be quick or be dead,
Snake eyes in heaven, the thief in your head--!
You've got to watch them - Be quick or be dead,
Snake eyes in heaven, the thieves in your head...
Be quick!
Or be dead!
Be quick! (quick!)(quick!) (quick!)
Or be DEAD! (dead!) (dead!) (dead!)

..

You've got to watch them - Be quick or be dead,
Snake eyes in heaven, the thieves in your head
You've got to watch them - Be quick or be dead,
Snake eyes in heaven, the thieves in your head...!!
Be quick!
Or be dead!
BE QUICK!

Lurch, I agree Iron Maiden is one of my favorite bands but Megadeth is definitely number one to me. They have thrash, power, ballads, drum work, strong lyric/vocal performances(in some songs). Megadeth may be mentioned as one of the best from time to time, but they seriously are underrated. It's usually just Peace Sells this and Holy Wars that but they're so much more than that.



badass song | Reviewer: Lurch | 8/16/09

How can you be in a band and never listened to Maiden before? You do realize they're arguably the best metal band of all time, right? I like them second only to Megadeth but that's only because I like thrash. That's why I really like this song, a good display of Maiden's ability to be fast and aggressive.



Great song | Reviewer: BlurbMaster | 3/13/09

Only song I've heard from this band, got into it from some metallica thing my mate downloaded and gave to me. Very good intro riff, the chord progression is quite a good listen too. Lots of inspiration for my own songs with my current band. Just a bit heavier, but still, this is a very good song.



Extremely good | Reviewer: Klaus Gauger | 7/30/07

"Fear of the Dark" is not the best "Iron Maiden"-album, but this song "Be quick or be dead" is probably one of best the band ever produced. Good lyrics, good riffs and an incredible performance by Bruce Dickinson.



The Best | Reviewer: Kgolo | 6/30/06

Be quick or be dead is the best song i've ever listen to. Is still kicking man keep it that way. Cause if you keep up you are gonna blow me down.
