Top Ten Iron Maiden Songs With the Best Lyrics


The Top TenXW

1Dance of Death

By far the best. I swear, if these guys weren't awesome rockers, they would be famous poets. Just look up a lyric sheet, I guarantee you will agree that it should be a poem! - Songsta41

2When the Wild Wind Blows

A beautiful explanation of the beginning of the end. - Songsta41

3No More Lies

I truly believe that Iron Maiden became better lyric writers over time. Most of these are from 21st century albums. - Songsta41

5The Sign of the Cross
6The Thin Line Between Love and Hate
7Afraid to Shoot Strangers
8Wasted Years

A great song which shows the light to any age-depressed middle-aged person. - Songsta41


"Oh God of Earth and altar bow down and hear our cry. Our earthly rulers falter, our people drift and die. The walls of gold entomb us, the swords of stone divide. Take not thy thunder from us, take away our pride" - IronSabbathPriest

10Hallowed be thy Name

The Contenders


"Cruelty has a human heart,
Every man does play his part.
Terror of the men we kill,
The human heart is hungry still." - IronSabbathPriest
