Iron Maiden - Lord Of Light Lyrics




There are secrets that you keep
There are secrets that you keep
There are secrets that you tell to me alone
I can't reach things I can't see
You don't see this strange world
Quite the same as me
Don't deny me what I am
Nothing hidden still you fail to see the truth
These are things you can't reveal
These are things you can't reveal

We are part of some strange plan
Why the slaughter of the brotherhood of man
Infernal sacrifice of hell
Fire breathing lead the way
Mounds of bodies as they all burn into one
Revenge is living in the past
Time to look into a new millennium

Spiral path leads through the maze
Down into the fiery underworld below
Fire breathing lead the way
Lucifer was just an angel led astray

Free your soul and let it fly
Give your life to the Lord of Light
Keep your secrets and rain on me
All I see are mysteries

Free your soul and let it fly
Give your life to the Lord of Light
Keep your secrets and rain on me
All I see are mysteries

We are not worthy in your black and blazing eyes
We gather demons in the mirror every day
The bridge of darkness casts a shadow on us all
And all our sins to you we give this day

Others wait their turn their lives were meant to last
Use yours wisely as the light is fading fast
Free your soul and let it fly
Mine was caught I couldn't try
Time returns again to punish all of us

We are cast out by our bloody fathers hand
We are strangers in this lonely promised land
We are shadows of the one unholy ghost
In our nightmare world the only one we trust

Free your soul and let it fly
Give your life to the Lord of Light
Keep your secrets and rain on me
All I see are mysteries

Free your soul and let it fly
Give your life to the Lord of Light
Keep your secrets and rain on me
All I see are mysteries

  16. MotleyNerd

    The Lord of Light is Lucifer, the Devil, Satan. This song is how we look to him, burning each other and lying to ourselves about what is real through what we say is science and reason, the very lies he made to fool us. He wonders why now we say even he is not real, not just the One who created us and who we defied, for because of all our sin and deception and treachery, we all belong to him. He wonders why we choose to blind ourselves to the obvious fact that he is real, and that we doom ourselves by letting him lead us astray.

    @MotleyNerd I care because i love you, so much in fact that i would love to shove my entire fist into your taught mighty buttock what's your safe-word? mine's "antidisestablishmentarianism"

    MotleyNerd

    Daniel Newhouse

    I don't want to sound flippant here, but are you sure it isn't The Great Other?

    määp

    Maiden has many songs from different perspectives so you might be right. they write lyrics that differ from their own points of view all the time, that's why they are such great writers.

  17. Julio Fiorillo

    Bruce dickinson = Lord of light

    Tony John

    Very true🤘
