Lyrics
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

  • Will always be my favorite rock band to the end of days to the edge of time! *Senjitsu Eddie Rock On!!!!!!*

  • Harris is killin it as usual

  • Uh... Might be time to call it a day, guys. Country riffs and Bruce sounding really tired are the death knell.

  • Iron maiden are not only a music band they are massengers

  • Intro, all I'm hearing is Living On The Edge (Aerosmith)

  • I love it

  • Wtf, This is amazing, :0

  • Senza parole! Maiden intramontabili!

  • One word: Iron Maiden

  • Samurai Eddie looks so dashing and badass

  • I've been a loyal fan of Iron Maiden since the killer album was released. I was able to experience them live for the first time 2 years ago in Germany. Still this power on stage and I'm impressed how they have been rocking ever since.

  • Awsome, song nd the animation, and that samurai Eddie, pufff I fell in love

  • Maiden at its best!! Can’t stop listening to this song.

  • Essas bandas vem ventilando o apocalipse a anos! Symphony X tá no mesmo caminho e chega a ser mais sombrio ainda

  • who's still listening to this in 2030.?? n now I'll wait...

  • How many eddy there is? in this video you show us more then 1 eddy

  • Great video

  • Sin duda, las mejores bandas que todavía sobreviven sin tener que recurrir a otros géneros :v (trap) jajaja

  • An instant classic!

  • Why does this remind me of New Frontier from Dance of Death?

  • No entiendo el videooo nada de nada pero el tema está muy buenooo

  • The guitars are awesome all the way though this track ……

  • Will always remember my first encounter with maiden, seeing them live at Hull city Hall (a long time ago) Nicko hadn't been with the band long, he threw his sticks out into the crowd i was so mesmerized by Bruce's performance, didn't see the said incoming drum stick bounce of the top of my head splitting it open i hasten to add, what a first concert! the bummer was i never did get that stick., Happy Days!!.

  • I really enjoyed this!

  • This is a warning! I must post this message. I hope people will see the significance also in the lyrics. Its all not a coincidence! "The writing on the wall" It's a reference to Daniel 5 in the bible " Belshazzar's feast" (watch Steve Fletcher for more info) He also talked about this in his video's, and the correlation with the times we life in. And the day that this song came out, we saw that God's name was spelled in the vines on the tempel wall, that's no coincidence! used to listen a lot of iron maiden when I was younger. Know I feel the urge to put this warning out for you all! See also the lyrics for yourself below. They also commented "We hope you enjoyed the feast". The feast is almost over. And the four ridders will come. Prophecied in the bible (revelation), also the earthquake And the war with His saints (what is in the lyrics also). These are the end of days! The timing is not a coincidence. Maybe God while give some eyes to see. And will see that it is truly coming to an end for this current world. The wrath of God is coming soon. 7 year period called the "great tribulation" to all those who do evil and rejected Him. You don't want to be here in that period of time! God will rescue His own! Please Give your life to Him! Repent of your sins! Believe that he died and that He rose again on the third day. If you truly believe that and speak it out in prayer. Then He is faithful to make you one of His own. He only is able to save you very own soul! Jesus is the way the truth and the life!

  • Marvellous. Good job guys.

  • The last solo is Adrian I guess. Brilliant the way he enters into the solo

  • A feast for the eyes and ears. Just amazing

  • --------- ATTENTION -------- There is an "Iron Maiden" channel that brings back songs by passing them off as new IRON songs Actually the songs are from the musical group "Icon Of Sin" and their album Note that the singer is "Raphael Mendes", who imitates the voice of BRUCE !!!!! In addition, I also found other youtube channels that put songs pretending to be new IRON songs: - Channel "Daniel Belshazzar" is actually a song by "Black Phantom" - "Made in Metal" channel - "Pluto Excavations" channel - "Metal Chord Muffins" channel - "VORAX" channel

  • You still got it .

  • It would be so cool if this was an actual series

  • 1991: I’m 13, listening to my first Iron Maiden song, amazed 2021: I’m 43, listening to this, 30 years and still amazed

  • Thats so dope

  • AXyeHHO🤟

  • To już chyba tylko dla zboczeńców, którzy zestarzeli się razem z nimi 😀

  • Наконец-то! Спасибо, Iron Maiden, я вырос на вашей музыке!

  • WOW verry nice! i'm saad that i can only like it ones

  • 👏👏👏👏👏👏👏

  • No green day. We want to wake up when it is September the 3rd 😁😁😁

  • Somehow the video reminds me of cmx - punainen komentaja music video, in a good way.

  • Please don't stop making songs because I'll be a member of you Iron Maiden when I grow up because I'm 8 years old now.🤟🏻🤟🏻🤟🏻🤟🏻🤟🏻🤟🏻🤟🏻🤟🏻🤟🏻🤟🏻🤟🏻🤟🏻🤟🏻🤟🏻🤟🏻🎸🎸🎸🎸🎸🎸🎸🎸🎸🎸🎸🎸🎸🎸🎸 🎸💀💀💀☠️☠️☠️

  • Oh wow... so much symbolism!!! Great one Maiden!!

  • This is so great, like Heavy Metal cartoon from 1981.! I am fan more the 40 years and I can say this video is one of the best, ever. Hail to Maiden!

  • Awesome song and a mini Anime

  • absolutely brilliant - soooo matching the Astrology....

  • Grande Maiden!!

  • Вторая половина 20 го века в которой родились основные КИТЫ хеви метал рок музыки , успехов всем и здоровья.

  • I love it. Finally something good to listen to 🙌🏻

  • ☝👍👍👍

  • Eddie has returned.

  • Anyone notice the dead Sooty at 1:50 ? :-(

  • Türk yok

  • Omg is this Boring . Iron Maiden is dead

  • What is the meaning of this song

    • Must be related to Powerslave somehow, just my impression.

  • Damn, It's amazing!!!

  • Absolutely Classic!What a solo from Adrian!

  • Swear that Raven squawked when I watched it premiere? After watching this video so much I’ve lost count, it appears it was in my mind 🤣 Maiden is a class A drug and should be banned, it’s super addictive & gets you tripping! This Video is amazing and personally the best I’ve ever seen! 🤘🤘 up the irons!

  • In plain sight

  • Iron Maiden is legit the most progressive band of all times. They just keep on moving forward.

  • Why do i feel a new album incoming...

    • because it is coming

  • This is fillions of miles ahead of speed of light so fluff off with all that flippin fowelry

  • Maiden rock again...we miss them terribly

  • The fact they have thumbs down is sad

  • They need a better producer like Bob Rock or Rick Rubin.

  • epic song, epic video!!! I love Maiden!!!!

  • Drop D. Could’ve been on a Bruce solo album easily.

  • They really need to ditch that Shirley bloke, his production sucks!

  • UP THE IRONS!!!

  • I have to be at least 1.75M of the views by now.

  • Looks like I've got another new CD to buy! Can't wait!

  • banging clip and song

  • Senjutsu (仙術, English TV: Sage Jutsu, literally meaning: Sage Techniques) are a specialised field of jutsu that involve the use of natural energy.

    • Eddie reminds me of Evil Ash here. Hail to the king.

  • Credo meus amigos, que som!!! 🤘🏻🤘🏻

  • HELL YEAH!

  • C'mon guys, you can do better than that, I'm sure. What the hell happened, Kevin Shirley forced you to do this again? Sadly it's not metal anymore, it's a mediocre radiofrendly content. Why won't you go back to that sweet 1980's sounding era? The riffs' got power back then. Since the lack of metal element in this, it's not an Iron Maiden any more...

  • 🤘

  • I really do love how ALL of the ghost riders are former appearances of Eddie, from earlier albums, and the Senjutsu is the leader in this one!

  • Meravigliosa canzone e video, complimenti!!
