Iron Maiden: The Wicker Man.

Hand of fate is moving and the finger points to you
He knocks you to your feet and so what are you gonna do
Your tongue has frozen now you’ve got something to say
The piper at the gates of dawn is calling you his way

You watch the world exploding every single night
Dancing in the sun a newborn in the light
Say goodbye to gravity and say goodbye to death
Hello to eternity and live for every breath

Your time will come, your time will come
Your time will come, your time will come

The ferryman wants his money you ain’t going to give it back
He can push his own boat as you set up off the track
Nothing you can contemplate will ever be the same
Every second is a new spark, sets the universe aflame

You watch the world exploding every single night
Dancing in the sun a newborn in the light
Brothers and their fathers joining hands and make a chain
The shadow of the Wicker Man is rising up again

Your time will come, your time will come
Your time will come, your time will come

Your time will come, your time will come
Your time will come, your time will come
Your time will come, your time will come
Your time will come, your time will come


Taken from the album: Brave New World (2000).

  1. Honestly, I think Brave New World is still Maiden’s best album since the return of Bruce. I caught them on this tour too and they were excellent. I’ve seen them 3 times, once with Blaze Bayley even! Each show was excellent. They kill it live.

  2. I had the poster version of that album cover in my room when i was like 14 or 15, i think. And my mum comes in and says “ooh, what nice new poster you h-… hold on, hold on!!! What’s this??”
    We basically ended up listening to the album together on repeat for weeks 😀 😀
