IRON MAIDEN

IRON MAIDEN - Run Silent,Run Deep

rate me

(Harris/Dickinson)

The convoy lights are dead ahead

The merchantmen lay in their bed

The thump of diesels hammers down

In the oily sea-the killing ground

His knuckles white his eyes alight

He slams the hatch on the deadly night

A cunning fox in the chickens lair

A hound of hell and the devil don't care

chorus

Runing silent,runing deep,we are your final prayer

Warriors in secret sleep,a merchantman's nightmare

A silent death lies awaiting,for all of you below

Running silent,running deep,sink into your final sleep

Chill the hearts of fighting men

In open ocean wondering when?

The lethal silver fish will fly

The boat will shiver-men will die

A cast of millions-a part to play

Killer? victim? or fool for a day

Obeying an order-men have to die

Us or them - a well rehearsed lie

chorus

The lifeboats shattered the hull is torn

The tar black smell of burning oil

On the way down to davy jones

Every man for himself - you're on your own

The wolf eyes watch the crosswire

'Stern tubes ready','aim and fire|'

They can pin some medal on your chest

But in two more weeks - dead like the rest

chorus
