Revelations Lyrics - Iron Maiden

Review The Song (4)

"O God of Earth and Altar,
Bow down and hear our cry,
Our earthly rulers falter,
Our people drift and die,
The walls of gold entomb us,
The swords of scorn divide,
Take not thy thunder from us,
But take away our pride."
(G. K. Chesterton; English Hymnal)

Just a babe in the black abyss,
No reason for a place like this,
The walls are cold and souls cry out in pain,
An easy way for the blind to go,
A clever path for the fools who know
the Secret of the Hangman - the smile on his lips.
The light of the Blind - you'll see,
sponsored links
The venom tears my spine,
The Eyes of the Nile are opening - you'll see.

She came to me with a serpent's kiss,
As the Eye of the Sun rose on her lips,
Moonlight catches - silver tears I cry,
So we lay in a black embrace,
And the Seed is sown in a holy place,
And I watched, and I waited for the dawn.

The light of the Blind - you'll see,
The venom tears my spine,
The Eyes of the Nile are opening - you'll see.


Bind all of us together,
Ablaze with Hope and Free,
No storm or heavy weather
Will rock the boat you'll see.
The time has come to close your eyes
And still the wind and rain,
For the one who will be King
The Watcher in the Ring,
It is You.

It is you...

Excellent song | Reviewer: Krokberg | 6/14/11

An excellent song with huge depth, still kinda underrated even though it's been played live very often =S

Oh, and my perfect band would be like this:
Vocals: Bruce Dickinson (Iron Maiden)
Guitars: Adrian Smith, Dave Murray, Janick Gers (Iron Maiden)
Bass: Steve godly Harris (Iron Maiden)
Drums: Nicko McBrain (Iron Maiden)

this song is AWESOME! It is Bruce Dickinson's only song that was written just by him on the album, and it is excellent. it is fast and slow, one of maiden's greatest songs ever. My ideal metal band would be as such (i'll tell you what band each person is from for you noobz that don't know
Bruce Dickinson (Iron Maiden): Vocals
Dave Mustaine (Megadeth): Guitars
Randy Rhoads (Quiet Riot, Ozzy): Guitars
Cliff Burton (Metallica): Bass
Dave Lombardo (Slayer): Drums

EPIC | Reviewer: Jim Lahey - Trailer Park Supervisor | 11/18/07

Favorite Maiden song...the poem at the begining holds so much truth as well. An awesome listen and would reccomend to any fan of the metal genre, or even otherwise.

Keep haulin' ass.

I loved this some the first time I heard it | Reviewer: Anonymous | 4/30/07

This is probably my favorite Iron Maiden song. I remember 16 years old sitting in my bed room jamming to this song on my first guitar. AWESOME!!
