Iron Maiden: Can I Play With Madness.

Can I play with madness?

Give me the sense to wonder
To wonder if I’m free
Give me a sense of wonder
To know I can be me
Give me the strength to hold my head up
Spit back in their face
Don’t need no key to unlock this door
Gonna break down the walls
Break out of this bad place

Can I play with madness?
The prophet stared at his crystal ball
Can I play with madness?
There’s no vision there at all
Can I play with madness?
The prophet looked at me and laughed at me (ha ha) He said:
Can I play with madness?
He said you’re blind, too blind to see

Ohhh said that you’re too blind to see

I screamed aloud to the old man
I said don’t lie, don’t say you don’t know
I say you’ll pay for this mischief
Oh in this world or the next
Oh and then he fixed me with a freezing glance
And the hell fires raged in his eyes
He said you wanna know the truth son?
Lord, I’ll tell you the truth
Your soul’s gonna burn in a lake of fire

Can I play with madness?
The prophet stared at his crystal ball
Can I play with madness?
There’s no vision there at all
Can I play with madness?
The prophet looked at me and laughed at me (ha ha) He said:
Can I play with madness?
He said you’re blind, too blind to see

Listen to me, said the prophet

Can I play with madness?
The prophet stared at his crystal ball
Can I play with madness?
There’s no vision there at all
Can I play with madness?
The prophet looked at me and laughed at me (ha ha) He said:
Can I play with madness?
He said you’re blind, too blind to see

Can I play with madness?
