Iron Maiden - Gates Of Tomorrow Lyrics




Weaving a thread round your heart and your soul
Deceiving your eyes and delaying your goal
Ships in the night when they pass out of sight
Deliver their cargo of earthly delights

To the women and children, the souls of the dead
I've opened their book and no mercy is shed
You want forgiveness and you want it cheap
I don't give redemption rewards for the meek

Suffering evil when you pay the price of fame
There isn't a god to save you if you don't save yourself
You can't blame a madman for this, if you go insane
Give me the strength so I carry on

[Chorus:]
Trapped in the web - but I cut the threads
Show you the gates of tomorrow
Trapped in the web - no mercy is shed
Show you the gates of tomorrow
Trapped in the web - slaves to the dead
Show you the gates of tomorrow
Trapped in the web - but I cut the threads
Show you the gates of tomorrow

[Repeat 3rd verse

[Chorus:]
Trapped in the web - but I cut the threads
Show you the gates of tomorrow
Trapped in the web - slaves to the dead
Show you the gates of tomorrow
Trapped in the web - no mercy is shed
Show you the gates of tomorrow
Trapped in the web - but I cut the threads
Show you the gates of tomorrow

  1. Spawny Chancer

    justin bieber brought me here






    just kidding. that degenerate whigger is utterly incapable of coming up with anything even remotely related to the greatness of iron maiden

  2. susanne williamsson

    Catchy, punchy and absolutely brilliant.....the chorus couldn´t be better and the lyrics...wow a proof of theese guys supremecy, Iron Maiden always tells the truth in their own poetic and brutal way.....

    Gabo Solis

    Agreed with you Lady, amazing Up the Irons!!!

  3. Modellbauer Builder

    One of my favorite Maiden songs 🎵🎶🎸

  4. Studio Šrauf'n Cingr

    5 MORE LIKES TO 666!!!

  5. susanne williamsson

    Caught in a web, counting the threads.....show me the Gates of Tomorrow.....A simply spellbinding song, the lyrics, amazing guitar phrasing, riffs and solos, the Godgiven voice of Bruce...who could possibly ask for more

    This is my very first Maiden song I've heard and which got me into Iron Maiden. While I agree with most of you that they have much better songs, this one always has a special place in my heart.

  8. Rafael Moura

    A very strong (and underrated) song with fucking strong lyrics. Always cheers me up when I'm feeling down and sad. Few people understand the power contained in this or in others like Wildest Dreams, Rainmaker and Wicker Man

  9. Rasool Lewis

    Cartoon Jam Fight For Minnesota in February 20 2005

  10. F Superbravedude

    Cant get over 2:13

  11. F Superbravedude

    Great album, bad cover, ok song

  12. Nocturnal Blaze

    Mdn rulz frvr!!!

  13. Ozzy Yeoman

    iron maiden and Bruce Dickerson will kick ass for ever

  14. Fabio Iannaccone

    You can't blame a madman if you go insane
    Give me the strength so I carry on

  15. David BG

    I really love this song, many people says that should be a single or simply not exist, because is "weak" and "has little creativity". Lyrics are short, but beautiful, initial guitar riff is simply but powerfull, bass line is awsome. A good composer does't write only
    Far-fetched works, sometimes has a little idea, and may create some really bautiful from it. It's a shame to know maybe they will never play this one on live :/

    Riley Mcdowell

    David BG still has more lyrics than most songs these days.

  16. Seppers!

    You are right random 123 guy this song is cool!

  17. Shoksta

    This considered to be one of the very very worst songs in the Iron Maiden Discography.
    This is song is clearly amazing though, especially the fantastic chorus I think this just shows how consistent Iron Maiden's output is.
    Incredible Band.

    Vega The Destroyer

    So glad I just listen to the music and don't get caught up in the fan boy bullshit. Would ruin the experience.

  18. susanne williamsson

    Iron Maiden, the one band I just can´t live without, amazing music, like always, but the lyrics, wow, absolutely spellbinding....I must confess, I love the album.....

  19. B J. Schmor

    Am I the only one who thinks the opening sounds like "Tailgunner"? Especially at 0:18.

  20. susanne williamsson

    AMAZING SONG.....That is exactly how we sometimes feel......caught in a web, counting the threads, no way out, somehow you have to save yourself....IRON MAIDEN NAILS IT AGAIN.......I love them, and their absolutely mindblowing music and lyrics......

    D Zescha

    susanne williamsson you want forgiveness and you want it cheap? :)

    susanne williamsson

    @D Zescha it will NEVER be cheap....

  21. Miraç Turan

    2:54 fear is the key?

    LooKerHood

    yep it's similar jeff

    Las puertas del mañana

    Tejido de hilo alrededor de tu corazón y de tu alma
    Engaño de tus ojos y retraso de tu objetivo
    Barcos en la noche cuando ellos pasan fuera de vista
    Entregas tu carga de placeres terrenales
    A las mujeres y niños, las almas de los muertos
    No he abierto su libro y no hay misericordia vertiente
    Tu quieres el perdón y tu lo quieres barato
    Yo no puedo darte redención recompresa por el manso
    sufriendo el mal cuando tu pagastes el precio de la fama
    No hay un dios que te salve si tu no puedes salvarte
    Tu no puedes culpar a un loco si tu te vuelves loco
    Dame la fuerza para continuar
    [Coro]
    Atrapado en la telaraña, pero corté los hilos
    Demuéstrame las puertas del mañana
    Atrapado en la telaraña, recompensa por el manso
    Demuestrame las puertas del mañana
    Atrapado en la telaraña, esclavos de la muerte
    Demuéstrame las puertas del mañana
    Atrapado en la telaraña, pero corté los hilos
    Demuéstrame las puertas del mañana

  24. Tom W

    Such awful quality.

    Jii Laa

    Buy the album! ;)

  25. McLivey DooDle

    This is an English band. Ivan Martinez Higuera is not English. why don't you post music from latino culture instead???

    Wigster600

    @Kotstulle Wagner
    Obviously the three of us care enough to comment.

    Winged Assassin

    @wigster600 no i dont understand the guy who wrote this comment. he is like "nah your not english so dont even DARE to post english bands mate"

    Wigster600

    If you think so, reading things on the internet is rather subjective.

    McLivey DooDle

    No, I would rather just hear music from his culture, rather than his posting music from mine.

    susanne williamsson

    @McLivey DooDle sorry for replying so late but isn´t that the most important thing about the internet ??? You may come from the other side of the world and YET be understood and loved for posting the thing YOU love the most ???

  26. Naif Abdeen

    maiden it's my band yepi yahh

  27. Oytun Palas

    Never realized there's only one verse and one bridge on this song. Unconventional. One of my favorites on DOD.

  28. Henrique Cardoso

    hail metal

  29. Aleksander Pagels

    The intro in this song is almost identical to "Lord of the Flies". Don't think many Maiden fans have noticed that.

    Paweł Wiśniewski

    One man wrote these 2 songs.. Janick Gers

    w7class

    This is called a dystokia of real innovative ideas, the next step in iron maiden's music..

    Vivian Stanshall

    They do that alot
    Isn't there a wasted years rip off?

    Dumbass

    I hardly ever listen to Blaze Bailey albums, so no I did not notice.

    susanne williamsson

    @Dumbass you should, especially the X-Factor....

  30. Ademir Wolff Junior

    Awesome music;

  31. Pantelis Papadopoulos

    Το "There isn't a god to save you if you don't save yourself! 
    You can't blame a madman if you go insane. 
    Give me the strength so I carry on" αποτελει μυθικο τριστιχο...

  32. gfinetti

    Easily a powerslave-level song!!!!!

    Maiden always amazing

  33. Αnto7

    pali edw re trele?antigrafea

  37. Jiikky

    The Cult - She Sells Sanctuary. Try that one :)

  38. anitnec

    Maybe Van Halen's (he is an absolute monster) an inspiration for Janick ;) Why not

  39. susubear13

    this song is fucking badass

  40. younghatter

    Does the first couple of seconds remind anyone else of the school of rock song hahaha?

    jonybeam

    younghatter no

  41. DestroyerGreat

    lamest maiden song ever in my opinion..

    jonybeam

    DestroyerGreat yeah it's a definite album filler that's for sure

  42. Asura Seikei

    Badass song. 'Preciate the upload with lyrics, even though I know them all by heart. xD

  43. Pranav Bharadwaj
