Written by Smith / Dickinson

Across a painted desert lies a train of vagabonds
All that’s left of what we were it’s what we have become
Once our empires glorious but now the empire’s gone
The dead gave us the time to live and now our time is done

Now we are victorious we’ve become our slaves
A land of hope and glory building graveyards for the brave

Have you seen the writing on the wall
Have you seen that writing
Can you see the riders on the storm
Can you see them riding ~ can you see them riding

Holding on to jury is that all we ever know
Ignorance our judge and jury all we’ve got to show
From Hollywood to Babylon ~ holy war to kingdom come
On a trail of dust and ashes ~ when the burning sky is done
A tide of change is coming and that is what you fear
The earthquake is a coming but you don’t want to hear
You’re just too blind to see

Have you seen the writing on the wall
Have you seen that writing
Can you see the riders on the storm
Can you see them riding
Can you see them riding. . . Riding next to you

    Epic! What can I say guys? Phenomenal piece of art. A merger of "Heavy Metal" magazine, with esoteric knowledge all glued together with the machine that is Iron Maiden. A masterpiece guys! Thanks and look forward to the next album!... now if only you would tour in Newfoundland, that'd be great!

    This is a good tune. And at 7 mns it's long but not too long. The last album had some good stuff but all the songs were way too long and I could never get into it. Looks like this one mixes up the lengths better. I like this but hope to hear some shorter rocking aces high type stuff as well. Find out soon I guess.

    C'est un album qui promet. De plus, c'est un retour aux sources: voix, basse, guitares et batterie. S'il y a présence de claviers, ils se font plutôt discrets.

    Rory Gallagher's version of "Out On The Western Plain", with Bad Company's "Feel Like Makin' Love" and given a Maiden twist. What were/are two individually great songs have been turned into something simple and dull. And it has been like this since 1989.

    When the Lamb opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth living creature say, “Come!” I looked, and there before me was a pale horse! Its rider was named Death, and Hades was following close behind him. They were given power over a fourth of the earth to kill by sword, famine and plague, and by the wild beasts of the earth. When he opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of those who had been slain because of the word of God and the testimony they had maintained. They called out in a loud voice, “How long, Sovereign Lord, holy and true, until you judge the inhabitants of the earth and avenge our blood?” Then each of them was given a white robe, and they were told to wait a little longer, until the full number of their fellow servants, their brothers and sisters,[e] were killed just as they had been. I watched as he opened the sixth seal. There was a great earthquake. The sun turned black like sackcloth made of goat hair, the whole moon turned blood red, and the stars in the sky fell to earth, as figs drop from a fig tree when shaken by a strong wind. The heavens receded like a scroll being rolled up, and every mountain and island was removed from its place. Then the kings of the earth, the princes, the generals, the rich, the mighty, and everyone else, both slave and free, hid in caves and among the rocks of the mountains. They called to the mountains and the rocks, “Fall on us and hide us[f] from the face of him who sits on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb! For the great day of their[g] wrath has come, and who can withstand it?” Revelation 6:7:15

    DAMN MAIDEN. DAMN. 17th album...Biblical themes in the promo and depicting the inevitable defeat of the antichrist...not to mention the most classic rock sound you've ever had and I dig that. I see the writing on the wall. It is there in our real world, and for better or worse nothing can stop what is coming.

    Can’t wait to get my own copy of this album. At first, it took some getting used to the slightly more stripped down sound, but this is Iron fuckin’ Maiden we’re talking about, so it sounds epic no matter what style they play. Great job, my dudes. Disclaimer: I love Iron Maiden, and I’m not saying it was bad the first time; they just have a variety of styles, which I find great :) it’s their form of expression, anyway, and sounds sick, especially that solo :)

    Os Iron Maiden a lançarem o alerta daquilo que já estamos a viver mas que ainda se vai agravar. As profecias do apocalipse estão a cumprir-se,uma a uma. Eu era um céptico e já acordei. A sedução e o convite está escrito nas paredes e a maioria está a aceder a tudo,sem hesitar nem questionar. O fim do videoclip é demonstrativo disto que eu estou a dizer. A grande tentação que enganará muitos.

    How good can you expect a new song from Iron Maiden, after making albums for about 40 years now? About this good. Reminds me a bit of Alexander The Great, but not quite as great. Not anywhere near as great. It's a one listen song, and move on..
