Forgive me if I got any of the lyrics wrong. We all make mistakes.

The Top Ten

1 "I'm a clever bankers face, with just a letter out of place" - El Dorado

Come on, this is just lyrical genius. - IronSabbathPriest

2 "Cruelty has a human heart, every man does play his part. Terror of the men we kill, the human heart is hungry still." - Paschendale

Brilliant line from the best modern Iron Maiden song. - IronSabbathPriest

3 "I know what I want, I'll say what I want, and no one can take it away" - Journeyman

Just that one line in the chorus. Bruce's vocals are at their best in this song. - IronSabbathPriest

4 "When you know that your time has come around you know, you'll be prepared for it. Say your last goodbyes to everyone, a drink. And say a prayer for it." - Dance of Death
5 "What became of the man that started, all are gone and their souls departed, left me here in this place, so all alone" - Stranger in a Strange Land
6 "Will we ever know what the answer to life really is? Can you really tell me what life is? Maybe all the things that you know that are precious to you, could be swept away by fate's own hand" - Blood Brothers

Best iron maiden

I know this is originally part of the actual poem, but Maiden recorded it so... Hehe? - IronSabbathPriest

8 "You'll take my life but I'll take yours, too" - The Trooper

YOU FIRE THE MUSKET BUT I'LL RUN YA THROUGH - Brobusky

9 "As the guards march me out to the courtyard, somebody calls from a cell "God be with you" if there's a God, why's he let me die?" - Hallowed Be Thy Name
10 "Oh God of Earth and altar bow down and hear our cry. Our Earthly rulers falter, our people drift and die" - Revelations

The Contenders

11 "Blood is falling like the rain, its crimson cloak unveils again. The sound of guns can't hide their shame, and so we die at Paschendale."

Two extracts of one song in one list! Just epic. - IronSabbathPriest
