Iron Maiden - Hallowed Be Thy Name (Live at Ullevi)

De volta ao altar das "farsescas tradições"(como diz o Fred ZeroQuatro), eis o rock heavy metal de "raiz".
A Dama de Ferro em performance em 2005, na Suécia.

Hallowed Be Thy Name Iron Maiden
I'm waiting in my cold cell, when the bell begins to chime.
Reflecting on my past life and it doesn't have much time.
'Cause at 5 o'clock they'll take me to the Gallows pole,
The sands of time for me are running low,
running low.

When the priest comes to read me the last rites,
I take a look through the
bars at the last sights,
Of a world that has gone very wrong for me.

Can it be that there's some sort of error.
Hard to stop the surmounting terror.
Is it really the end and not some crazy dream.

Somebody please tell me that I'm dreaming,
It's not so easy to stop from screaming,
The words escape me when i try to speak.
Tears flow but why am I crying,
After all I'm not afraid of dying.
Don't I believe that there never is an end.

As the guards march me out to the courtyard,
Somebody cries from a cell "God be with you".
If there's a God then why has He let me go?

As I walk all my life drifts before me,
Though the end is near I'm not sorry.
Catch my soul, it's willing to fly away.

Mark my words believe my soul lives on.
Don't worry now that I have gone.
I've gone beyond to see the truth.

When you know that your time is close at hand.
Maybe then you'll begin to understand,
Life down here is just a strange illusion

Hallowed Be Thy Name

eh eh eh eh eh eh
Hallowed Be Thy Name
