iron maiden – 2 minutes to midnight [rock in rio] lyrics

Loading...

[verse 1]
k!ll 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
blackened pride still burns inside
this sh+ll of bl++dy treason
here’s my gun for a barrel of fun
for the love of living death

[pre+chorus]
the k!ller’s breed or the demon’s seed
the glamour, the fortune, the pain
go to war again, blood is freedom’s stain
don’t you pray for my soul anymore?

[chorus]
2 minutes to midnight
the hands that threaten doom
2 minutes to midnight
to k!ll the unborn in the womb

[verse 2]
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 l!ck the gravy
we oil the jaws of the war machine and feed it with our babies
[pre+chorus]
the k!ller’s breed or the demon’s seed
the glamour, the fortune, the pain
go to war again, blood is freedom’s stain
don’t you pray for my soul anymore?

[chorus]
2 minutes to midnight
the hands that threaten doom
2 minutes to midnight
to k!ll the unborn in the womb

[instrumental break/guitar solo]

[verse 3]
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

[pre+chorus]
the k!ller’s breed or the demon’s seed
the glamour, the fortune, the pain
go to war again, blood is freedom’s stain
don’t you pray for my soul anymore?
[chorus]
2 minutes to midnight
the hands that threaten doom
2 minutes to midnight
to k!ll the unborn in the womb

[outro]
midnight
midnight
midnight
it’s all night
midnight
midnight
midnight
it’s all night
