Be quick or be dead

El 11 de mayo de 1992 sale a la venta el noveno álbum de Iron Maiden: "Fear of the Dark". Sin embargo este sería el "último" con Bruce Dickinson...




BE QUICK OR BE DEAD
(Bruce Dickinson/Janick Gers)

Covered in sinners and dripping
With guilt,
Making your money from slime
And from filth;
Parading your bellies in ivory towers,
Investing our lives in your schemes
And your powers.

(chorus)
You've got to watch them - be quick
Or be dead,
Snake eyes in heaven - the thief's
In your head.
You've got to watch them - be quick
Or be dead,
Snake eyes in heaven - the thief's
In your head...

Be quick...
Or be dead!
Be quick...
Or be dead!

See... what's ruling all our lives,
See... who's pulling strings...

I bet you won't fall on your face...
Your belly will hold you in place.

The serpent is crawling inside of
Your ear,
He says you must vote for what you
Want to hear;
Don't matter what's wrong as long as you're
Alright,
So pull yourself stupid and rob
Yourself blind.
