IRON MAIDEN - 2 Minutes to Midnight lyrics

rate me

(adrian smith/bruce dickinson)

Kill for gain or shoot to maim

But we don't need a reason

The golden goose is on the loose

And never out of season

Some blackened pride still burns inside

This shell of bloody treason

Here's my gun for a barrel of fun

For the love of living death.


The killer's breed or the demon's seed

The glamourthe fortunethe pain

Go to war againblood is freedom's stain

But don't you pray for my soul anymore.

2 minutes to midnight

The hands that threaten doom.

2 minutes to midnight

To kill the unborn in the womb.

The blind men shout let the creatures out

We'll show the unbelievers

The napalm screams of human flames

Of a prime time belsen feast...yeah!

As the reasons for the carnage cut their meat and lick the gravy

We oil the jaws of the war machine and feed it with our babies.


The body bags and little rags of children torn in two

And the jellied brains of those who remain to put the finger right on you.

As the madmen play on words and make us all dance to their song

To the tune of starving millions to make a better kind of gun.


Midnight...all night...
