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 am literally playing this song on repeat for the hole day. I'm not such a fan of heavy metal, but this is a masterpiece.
Tive a honra de ver essa banda tocar ontem em SP, sem dúvidas um verdadeiro espetáculo!!
And justice for all
And justice for all:
It's another masterpiece. One of so many Maiden have written. I first saw this band live in 1982 and have been a fan ever since, seeing them live 6 times. I'm now 57 and still listen to them regularly.

Iron Maiden still rocks all these years. I wish they could have bumped up Bruce Dickinson's voice in the mix a tad.

Só uma música como essa pra me animar nesse dia difícil

Nunca vou esquecer daquele 04/09/2022, o dia que pela primeira vez na minha vida fui no show do Iron Maiden, foi espetacular foi surreal um dos maiores sonhos realizado na minha vida, vai ser a primeira de muitas
This is awesome!🤘🏽🔥
Sensacional, simplesmente melhor clipe já feito do Maiden

I'm a huge maiden fan and within the last year, this has become my favorite song by far, it is perfect, from the build up to the bridge the solo the lyrics everything, and the video just seals the deal, the four horsemen, the four Eddie's putting a violent stop to consumerism 🤟

Me encanta como a través de los años la voz de Bruce ha ido madurando y cambiando. Siento que los discos también marcan esa trayectoria que tiene la banda. Los amo <3

this music video is absolutely stunning! the song is amazing first of all. the animation is phenomenal. the camera swivels and colors are so great. i really enjoyed the story too. it would be great if this story was extended into a series with the same animation style.

Iron maiden fan since the apocalyptic of there best songs... video very apt for the dark times ..
Saw them last week for the first time in my life, in Sofia. Holy shit that was a surreal experience, one of the best concert I've ever been to
Alessandro Guiven
Alessandro Guiven:
Really cool that a music video doesn't necessarily need to show the band playing on it, or people in general. Animation could be as cool or even better than a common music video.
Anth Can
Anth Can:
I agree with Gene Simmons, it is disgusting that Maiden is not in the rock and roll hall of fame

Jimmy knight:
Iron Maiden , they keep cranking out one great album after another, since the 1980 self titled debut! . This is one of those rare bands who don't have single bad album in their discography! Up the irons!!!!!
Cara, top demais! A 30 anos apreciando e a cada dia mais eles nos surpreendem!! E além disso são pessoas incríveis!!

I just love this band. They just do not disappoint live or on record and have been on the soundtrack of my entire life, through good and bad times! I've seen them live at least 7 or 8 times and will again on October 27!

I have been fighting cancer for last 7 months and needed morale to overcome this process. Nothing helped as much as this premiere. Hope to hear all the new album soon as well. Thank you Maiden!! 🤘🤘🤘

Edit: Blood brothers, I will go into surgery on November 8th. I believe I will defeat this and end this hell on earth with the prayers and best wishes of yours. I love you all. Up the Irons!! 🤘
Adrian Smith’s music writing is amazing.
Colin Gilman
Colin Gilman:
Those who think this is not true Maiden have not taken the time to seriously think about the underlying theme of their music and of course, their album mascot legend, Eddie. At it's deepest most level, Iron Maiden is for the very few who have the bravery and the brains to rebel against human nature. Just look at Eddie! It doesn't matter what time it is, death is always around the corner. Human nature will never change, no matter HOW MUCH TECHNOLOGY YOU THROW AT US.
Michael Schenck
Michael Schenck:
I feel that with so many languages represented in these comments, Iron Maiden connects universally. I am from the American South and enjoy the Southern vibe. What other band writes about history? Thank you Steve Harris and Bruce Dickinson.

É um privilégio existir nesse mundo na mesma época que o Iron Maiden. Só dá pra agradecer mesmo. ♥
I heard this song for the first time last week when they played in Budapest. The whole concert was amazing and Bruce sounded awesome!
I just love how they’re still capable of creating masterpieces after 47 years of the bands foundation as some other metal bands lose their “performance” over the years.

Esse videoclipe deve ser sempre revisitado. Um clássico do Maiden. Up The Irons.

Iron maiden songs have helped me get through real tough times of my life. Currently facing a heartbreak kind of thing, and Iron Maiden is one of the treatments. Those "love" or "get over" songs actually make it worse for me lol - This is only band out of many that looks to be helping me get through. Many Maiden songs alleviate depression or depressing like feelings, bad mood, always cheer one up :) Thank you for creating such music.
