The Clansman Lyrics - Iron Maiden

Review The Song (3)



(Harris)

Wake alone in the hills
With the wind in your face
It feels good to be proud
And be free and a race
That is part of a clan
And to live on highlands
And the air that you breathe
So pure and so clean

When alone on the hills
With the wind in your hair
With a longing to feel
Just to be free

Is it right to believe
In the need to be free
It's a time when you die
sponsored links
And without asking why
Can't you see what they do
They are grinding things down
They are taking our land
That belongs to the clans

Not alone with a dream
Just a want to be free
With a need to belong
I am a clansman
Freedom

It's a time wrought with fear
It's a land wrought with change

Ancestors could hear
What is happening now
They would turn in their graves
They would all be ashamed
That the land of the free
Has been written in chains

And I know what I want
When the timing is right
Then I'll take what is mine
I am the clansman

And I swear to defend
And we'll fight to the end
And I swear that I'll never be taken alive
And I know that we'll stand
And we'll fight for our land
And I swear that my bairns
Will be born free

And I know what I want
When the timing is right
Then I'll take what I want
I am the clansman
Freedom

No, no we can't let them take anymore
No we can't let them take anymore
We've the land of the free
OOOOOOOOOO ooooooOooo OOOOOOOOO

Is it right to believe
In the need to be free
It's a time when you die
And without asking why
Can't you see what they do
They are grinding things down
They are taking our land
That belongs to the clans

Not alone with a dream
Just a want to be free
With a need to belong
I am a clansman

And I know what I want
When the timing is right
Then I'll take what is mine
I am the clansman
Freedom

And I know what I want
When the timing is right
Then I'll take what is mine
I am the clansman.

Clansman | Reviewer: Ratpoison | 2/13/11

I enjoyed the song with Blaze on the album thats true, However in the end I always find my self returning to bruces live effort in Rock In Rio of this song.

Lord of the flies is a different matter entierly tho.

Great lyrics, Great band, Great everything.



Underestimated indeed | Reviewer: Robin Rybok | 10/8/10

I totally agree that Blaze was underestimated, he was a great singer, and so is Bruce. If Blaze weren't a good singer Steve would never have let him join the band and then stay for several years and 2 amazing albums. This song is just so beautiful and also got a deep meaning - FREEDOM. Its one of my favourite Maiden songs, since both the instrumental part and lyrics is just awesome. If its Blaze's studio version, or Bruce singing it live dont matter to much, both do the song very well, and I wouldn't prefer any of them in front of the other. UP THE IRONS from Sweden...\m/



Such an underated Album... Amazing Songs. | Reviewer: Joshua. | 7/9/09

Such a beautiful Song...
It's a great change from Bruces Singing style.
Such a peaceful and nice Intro, the Keyboards in this Album and this Song where amazing.
Blaze Bayley never got the respect he deserved, he did an amazing job on both Albums.
This is in my top 10-Favourite Iron Maiden Songs.
