Favourite maiden line

Whats your favourite line in a maiden song? One that you can't get out of your head and sing until someone sells you to shut up, or is that me just being obsessive and weird...

anyhow, mine is on sign of the cross:
They'll be saying their prayers
when the moment comes
There'll be penance to pay when it's judgement day


:cross: :headbang: :cross: :headbang: :cross: :headbang: :cross: :headbang:

it's hard to pick one, but now (just in this moment) maybe:
Wake alone in the hills
With the wind in your face
It feels good to be proud
And be free and a race
That is part of a clan
And to live on highlands
And the air that you breathe
So pure and so clean

it's few lines

and/or:
Run over stiles, across fields,
Turn to look at who's on your heels,
Way ahead of the field,
The line is getting nearer but do
You want the glory that goes,
You reach the final stretch,
Ideals are just a trace,
You feel like throwing the race,
It's all so futile.

or:

Like a wolf in sheep's clothing,
You try to hide your deepest sins,
Of all the things that you've done wrong,
And I know where you belong.

or:

The time will come for him
to lay claim his crown,
And then the foe yes
they'll be cut down,
You'll see he'll be the
best that there's been,
Messiah supreme
true leader of men,


sorry, but so hard to decide

I agree, the clansman's lyrics are so inspired! :clansman:

really it' so hard to pick few the best lines, cos in every song is at least 3 great lines.
maybe we should write maiden bad lines.
I dunno anyone

For the passion, for the glory
For the memories, for the money
Your a soldior for your country
What's the difference?
All the same?


It just means a lot for some reason.

There's a few:

Tears they fall, but why am i crying?
After all im not afraid of dying

Still burning heretics under our skies,
religion still burning inside
(i just think that, that genius sentence says SO much about religion)

I see the ghosts of navigators, But they're lost
As they sail into the sunset, they'll count the cost
As their skeletons accursing, emerge from the sea
The sirens of the rocks, they beckon me

And last but not least:
Out of the silent planet, dreams of desolation
Out of the silent planet, come the deamons of creation

Thats all from me (first post in the forums BTW)
 
here's some of my favoite for various reasons:

Iron Maiden's, gonna get you, no matter how far
so true

When your time is close at hand, maybe then you'll begin to understand, life down there is just a strange illusion
words of wisdom

Like a wolf in sheep's clothing, you try to hide your deepest sins
everyone's guilty of this

There's a grey place between black and white but everyone does have the right to chose what path that he takes
exactly

Sometimes when you're scared to take a look at the corner of the room, you've sensed that something's watching you
i admit it, i'm afraid of the dark, and it explains exactly what you feel, the whole song does and its one of my favs

Can you see me in the bushes with it open wide
..... :err:

I shall be the only one that has answered the actual title of the thread...
First one that came into my head...


I've lived in filth, I've lived in sin, and I still smell cleaner than the shit you're in :p

Bind us all together,
Ablaze with Hope and Free.
No storm or heavy weather,
Will rock the boat you'll see.
The time has come to close your eyes,
And still the wind and rain.
For the one who will be King,
Is the watcher in the Ring.
It is you.

Revelations :headbang:

one of my favorites :banana: :banana:
 
Then the spell starts to break
The albatross falls from his neck
Sinks down like lead into the sea
Then down it falls comes the rain
Love the Live After Death Version better :headbang:

CHICKY :shock:










From you I wouldnt expect anything less LOL LOL
 
There are so many but here are some:

"Iron Maiden's gonna get you, no matter how far"

"When it comes to the time
Are we partners in crime?"


Should we live and let live
Forget or forgive


When you think that we've used
all our chances
And the chance to make
everything right
Keep on making the same
old mistakes
Makes untipping the balance so easy
When we're living our lives on
the edge
Say a prayer on the book of the dead


An easy way for the blind to go,
A clever path for the fools who know.


There are many more, especially from songs like "Wasted Years", "Revelations", "Blood Brothers", "The Angel And The Gambler" and others.
