iron maiden – 666 the number of the beast 歌詞


woe to you, oh earth and sea
for the devil sends the beast with wrath
because he knows the time is short
let him who hath understanding reckon the number of the beast
for it is a human number its number is six hundred and sixty six

i lived alone my mind was blank
i needed time to think
to get the memories from my mind

what did i see can i believe that what i saw
that night was real and not just fantasy
just what i saw in my old dreams
were they reflections of my warped mind
staring back at me

’cause in my dreams it’s always there
the evil face that twists my mind
and brings me to despair

the night was black was no use holding back
’cause i just had to see was someone watching me
in the mist dark figures move and twist
was all this for real or just some kind of h-ll
666 the number of the beast h-ll and fire was sp-wned to be released

torches blazed and sacred chants were phrased
as they start to cry hands held to the sky
in the night the fires are burning bright
the ritual has begun satan’s work is done
666 the number of the beast, sacrifice is going on tonight

this can’t go on i must inform the law
can this still be real or just some crazy dream
but i feel drawn towards the chanting hordes
they seem to mesmerize can’t avoid their eyes
666 the number of the beast, 666 the one for you and me

i’m coming back i will return
and i’ll possess your body and i’ll make you burn
i have the fire i have the force
i have the power to make my evil take its course
