Written by Smith / Dickinson

Across a painted desert lies a train of vagabonds
All that’s left of what we were it’s what we have become
Once our empires glorious but now the empire’s gone
The dead gave us the time to live and now our time is done

Now we are victorious we’ve become our slaves
A land of hope and glory building graveyards for the brave

Have you seen the writing on the wall
Have you seen that writing
Can you see the riders on the storm
Can you see them riding ~ can you see them riding

Holding on to jury is that all we ever know
Ignorance our judge and jury all we’ve got to show
From Hollywood to Babylon ~ holy war to kingdom come
On a trail of dust and ashes ~ when the burning sky is done
A tide of change is coming and that is what you fear
The earthquake is a coming but you don’t want to hear
You’re just too blind to see

Have you seen the writing on the wall
Have you seen that writing
Can you see the riders on the storm
Can you see them riding
Can you see them riding. . . Riding next to you

    This song is a revelation, melting faces, snapping necks to cash cheques.... down to the fukin bone reality in the lyrics. My Kid is 4 and she calls this "the zombie song" she's asked me to watch this 5 times today. Im gonna say it" this is their best work" that ive heard: fuck i MISS stadiu

    Hate how the video distracts from the experience of listening to the song which is an easy 10/10. I think the song is way better enjoyed without the cartoony distraction.

    I absolutely love this song…Though I must say that the intro riff at 0:24 sounds a lot like Bon Jovi…Richie Sambora’s riff…Wanted Dead Or Alive…Moscow Peace Festival 1989…

    ...i think all heavy metal group it's sponsored by masonerry societyes,when the the group doesn't rolling in conformity,about messages who must to give it to the public,the group doesn't going. before recording,every song is check it,if texts don't show the results from the contract,doesn't recording. ...what contains the "contract"?,violance,hate,suicid,sex,death,terror,drogs.

    heavier start than normal Maiden (nuthing wrong with that) - thought I was listening to AC/DC :-) then Bruce's vocals come in - there's a different element since his treatment which I think the band have embraced and then the Maiden takes over - wonderful song and looking forward to the rest of the album

    hmm i realy wonder why some Bands can not reach half the Level they had in Beginning. I saw maiden in the 80s and 90s and sice Fear of the Dark there Magic is gone ! Same as Metallica , there last 5 Albums was so weak vs there first 5 ! I think Priest is the only of this Legendary bands who are still Legendary with new songs. Firepower was the best Album in the last 10 Years of Metal and also there 3 Albums before was so good. I realy would wish Maiden would make another Album in the Quality of Seventh Sun or Powerslave ! It realy makes no sence to say all is perfect , otherwise they will never get there Level back !

    I just cried, seeing Eddie saving humanity from all the stupid shit we've done to ourselves and giving humans a new chance to either make the same mistakes again or do the right thing. As Bruce once said "life, love and specially love for music, will go on and go on" These are crazy times, but art and music specially music is the hope we need. Stay safe blood brothers and sisters. Maiden forever! Up those f***ing irons!



    Simplesmente espetacular muito foda!.
