- The Number of the Beast

- The Number of the Beast, Iron Maiden 1982

As featured on the album The Number of the Beast

I left alone
My mind was blank
I needed time to think, to get the memories from my mind
What did I see
Could I believe
That what I saw that night was real and not just fantasy

Just what I saw
In my old dreams
Where they reflections of my warped mind staring back at me
'Cause in my dreams
It's always there
The evil face that twists my mind and brings me to despair

The night was black, 't was no use holding back
'Cause I just had to see, was someone watching me
In the mist, dark figures move and twist
Was all this for real or just some kind of hell

666, the number of the beast
Hell and fire was going to be released

Torches blazed and sacred chants were praised
As they start to cry, hands held to the sky
In the night, the fires are burning bright
The ritual has begun, Satan's work is done

666, the number of the beast
Sacrifice is going on tonight

This can't go on, I must inform the law
Can this still be real, or just some crazy dream
But I feel drawn towards the evil chanting hordes
They seem tt mesmerize, can't avoid their eyes

666, the number of the beast
666, the one for you and me

I'm coming back
I will return
And I'll possess your body and I'll make you burn
I have the fire
I have the force
I have the power to make my evil take its course
