IRON MAIDEN lyrics : "The Red And The Black"

The morals of life and the perils of death
Take the wrong way out running out of breath
Meet my match in the afterlife

Suppress the demons that plague the night
A tortured mind is a safe place to go
But the truth lurks down in the dark below

Step inside my inquisitive mind
Are you scared at what you just might find


See myself in the hall of mirrors
A different shape every step I take
A different mind every step of the line

But in the end they are all mine
Laughing sorrow inside your head
Can't get out just a feeling of dread

I know this burden's a heavy load
A dark mistake never ending road


The black jack king and the red queen clash
The artful dodger he counts his stash
The joker's wild like an impish child

While madame fortune she waits inside
The good luck charm is overkill
The tired old soldier says fire at will

Planes overhead go search destroy
The ones below human decoy


I need somebody to save me

Meanwhile we play the waiting game

The clock is struck the horse is lame
And when we think that this is done
Chance your luck a four leafed one

You hedge your bets the battle lost
To wait in vain and count the cost
The thin edged line

Between good and bad
And cast the luck be happy sad


I need somebody to save me

The red and the black

People don't want the truth
Look in their eyes and you send them away
The red and the black

Fate and hypocrisy
Burden's a heavy load there is no doubt
The red and the black

All out of luck again
How many chances can anyone have
The red and the black

Treachery out to win
There in the wrong place and at the wrong time


I need somebody to save me
