Dickinson, Bruce - Abduction Lyrics




I wake in sweat
You come to steal my life away
Some strange electric glow of artificial day
The power breakers closed
The grid of darkness falls
Shining, gleaming black as night
Burning all the light

What do you want from me?
I sense your mastery
There's something you won't ever find
So have your way with me
This prisoner is never free
Rip me up, leave me behind

Are you the truth to sit in judgement on my sins?
Evil laser gadgets come to penetrate my skin
The hanging judge is open
And I'm damned before his eyes
Another genesis that failed
And many more have tried

What do you want from me?
I sense your mastery
There's something you won't ever find
So have your way with me
This prisoner is never free
Rip me up, leave me behind

And so the story goes
I dreamt this long ago
Highways hidden in the sand
Reveal the troops I know
They took my worthless heart
And spat it through their eyes
Abduction means the end for me
A million years of misery

What do you want from me?
I sense your mastery
There's something you won't ever find
So have your way with me
This soldier's lost his victory
Rip me up, leave me behind

Dickinson, Bruce Abduction Comments
  1. Igor Pereira

    Another solo album?!?!?!! When?!?!?!?! Pleaaasssssse!!!!

  2. i'm only here for the beer

    Who else wants to strap Bruce down on a table and have their way with him? ;)

    Samson 92

    I would! XD

  3. Kozlodoi Beavis

    Ready to listen this song all the life through.

  4. i'm only here for the beer

    I was half expecting Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones to show up as Jay and Kay. XD

  5. i'm only here for the beer

    Anyone else thinks it's kinda hot, when Bruce is strapped down on the table?

    Samson 92

    Yup. I would love to strap Bruce down on a table (preferably shirtless) and have my way with him! ;)

  6. Chris Goldsmith

    This song goes hard.

  7. Viktor Tunić

    Hahaha... Iron Maiden has the worst videos. Bruce has continued the tradition. Looks like Matri-X-files. So bad it's good.

    i'm only here for the beer

    No, they don't. I can think of a lot of other bands and artists, who makes much WORSE videos. (And this one is actually quite hilarious). Ever seen a Motley Crue video? Or those lousy pop stars or (c)rap artists?

    Viktor Tunić

    @i'm only here for the beer well, why the hell would I watch motley crue vids :) ok, of all the bands I listen to, IM have the worst. But the music and the meaning is why I love them, not the vids and their "style"

    i'm only here for the beer

    @Viktor Tunić What other bands do you listen to? :)

  8. retropowerslave

    14 Years already, we need another Bruce solo album

    Peter Kos

    Absolutely agree.
    Solo album long over due.

    Samson 92

    If Eternity Should Fail and Empire of the Clouds were originally meant to be on Bruce's solo album. But Steve liked it so much, that it ended up on the Maiden album.

  9. yerko cornejo

    Temazooo

  10. mauricio mariojouls

    Temón!!!

  11. ivan snegireff

    Wow fantastic job on the musi

  12. Martin Mikuška

    masterpiece

  13. RODRIGO ST

    Awesome album!!! By far Bruce's heaviest album !!! \,,/
    Although my favorite still is ACCIDENT OF BIRTH

    jeffrey goins

    i agree.. accident of birth rivals anything he has done solo or with maiden.. quite possibly my favorite album of all time

    Samson 92

    My favorite album of Bruce is Chemical Wedding. Although Accident of Birth is a close second. And Tyranny of Souls is third.

  14. Carlos Calderon

    Bruce is bruce , is simple

  15. Carlos Calderon

    The solo is from roy z. Very good

  16. Thallis Santos neves

    Roy Z na guitarra perfect .... muito foda, pedradaaa maluco ouvindo isso e tomando um Macallan ruby

  17. Atrax Robustus

    Who does the solo? Dave Murray?

    Вася Пупкин

    Yez, he does! \m/

  18. Markus Hyvönen

    This should be on X-files :D

    i'm only here for the beer

    @?? Who the hell said anything about Terminator 2? Markus Hyvönen only said, that this should be on X-Files (the tv series). Terminator has nothing to do with The X-Files, you idiot!

  19. Pete Winman

    Ho yeah rock on fuckers

  20. Berserker Savagesword

    Great Album!!

  21. reiner bergkamen

    testament meets exodus meets bruce

    w7class

    Meets iced earth... Of course..

  22. Cat Fontenot

    help me

  23. Cat Fontenot

    help me l

  24. Dom Ward

    I love the way that Bruce never takes videos too seriously. A glove puppet alien would've finished the video off perfectly for me.
