Iced Earth Number Of The Beast Lyrics

Last updated: 10/25/2009 11:00:00 AM

[Iron Maiden cover]

I left alone, my mind was blank.
I needed time to get the memories from my mind

What did I see, can I believe,
that what I saw
last 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 some crazy dream.
But I feel drawn towards the chanting hordes.
They seem to mesmerise...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.
