Only The Good Die Young Lyrics

by Iron Maiden

The demon in your mind will rape you in your bed at night
The wisdom of ages, the lies and outrages concealed
Time, it waits for no man, my future it is revealed
Time, it waits for no man, my fate is sealed

If I cancel tomorrow the undead will thank me today
Fly in the face of your prophets, I mock your morality plays
The moon is red and bleeding, the sun is burned and black
The book of life is silent, no turning back

Only the good die young
All the evil seem to live forever
Only the good die young
All the evil seem to live forever
Only the good die young
Only the good die young

Mystery madman, a victim of cruel charade
Some innocent pawn in an end game, one more stalemate
Is death another birthday, a way to kiss your dreams good-bye?
Do the undead live within us and look through our eyes?

Walking on water are miracles all you can trust
Measure your coffin, does it measure up to your lust?
So I think I'll leave you with your bishops and your guilt
So until the next time, have a good sin

Only the good die young
All the evil seem to live forever
Only the good die young
All the evil seem to live forever
Only the good die young
Only the good die young

Seven deadly sins
Seven ways to win
Seven holy paths to Hell

Seven downward slopes
Seven bloodied hopes
Seven are your burning fires
Seven your desires
