Top Ten Iron Maiden Songs With the Best Lyrics


The Top Ten

1 Dance 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

2 When the Wild Wind Blows

He sees them in the distance when the darkened clouds roll
He could feel tension in the atmosphere
He would look in the mirror see an old man now...
This is SO catchy

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

3 No More Lies

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

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

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

9 Revelations

"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

10 Hallowed be thy Name

The Contenders

11 Paschendale

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

12 For the Greater Good of God
13 Empire of the Clouds
14 Seventh Son of a Seventh Son
