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

  • I must be listening to a different piece of music. Like maiden. Have done since the early 80s (yes I'm that old) and I want to like this new album. But I don't like the production. It all sounds muffled to me especially Bruce. Sounds like he's singing through a pillow.

  • Credo seriamente che il video integri il periodo apocalittico in cui viviamo, forse i 4 dell'Apocalisse veramente ci toglieranno dalle tenebre

  • Hi guys.. Recently I've a dilema.. I know Irons are the true Kings of Metal on their own merits but sometimes I think who is better.. If Iron Maiden or Metalica..

    • Actually I see the character as a very fat Joe Biden, Hunter Biden always refereed to his dad as the "big guy" saying: make sure the "big guy" gets his cut, the dead give away, is the car is being pulled by a donkey which is the mascot of the democrat party.
