respect to maiden for this legendary album :fist:

Woe to you, oh Earth and Sea
for the Devil sends the beast with wrath
because he knows the time is short...
(Revelations 12:12 )
Let him who hath understanding
reckon the number of the beast
for it is a human number
its number is Six hundred and sixty six.
(Revelations 13:18)

I left alone, my mind was blank
I needed time to think to get the memories from my mind
What did I see, can I believe
That what I saw that night was real
and not just fantasy

Just what I saw, in my old dreams
Were they reflections of my warped mind
Staring back at me

'Cause in my dreams, it's always there
The evil face that twists my mind and brings
me to despair

The night was black, was no use holding back
'Cause I just had to see, was someone
watching me
In the mist, dark figures move and twist,
Was this all for real, or just some kind of hell.
666 the Number of the Beast
Hell and fire was spawned to be released

Torches blazed and sacred chants were praised
As they start to cry, hands held to the sky
In the night, the fires burning bright,
The ritual has begun, Satan's work is done.
666 the Number of the Beast
Sacrifice is going on tonight

This can't go on, I must inform the law
can this still be real or some crazy dream?
But I feel drawn toward the evil chanting hordes,
they seem to mesmerize me.... can't avoid their eyes
666 the Number of the Beast
666 the one for you and me.

I'm coming back, I will return,
And I'll possess your body and I'll make you burn
I have the fire, I have the force
I have the power to make my evil take its course.
