Iron Maiden – Powerslave lyrics

(Bruce dickinson)

Into the abyss I'll fall-the eye of horus
Into the eyes of the night-watching me go
Green is the cat's eye that glows-in this temple
Enter the risen osiris-risen again.

Tell me why I had to be a powerslave
I don't wanna die, I'm a god, why can't I live on?
When the life giver dies, all around is laid to waste.
And in my last hour,
I'm a slave to the power of death.

When I was living this lie-fear was my game
People would worship and fall-drop to their knees
So bring me the blood and red wine for the one to succeed me
For he is a man and a god-and he will die too.


Now I am cold but a ghost lives in my veins,
Silent the terror that reigned-maarbled in stone
Shell of a man God preserved-a thousand ages
But open the gates of my hell-i will strike from the grave.
