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

    Yes, I’ve seen that writing on the wall; “Thou art weighed in the balances, and art found wanting”. The devil is trying to lure humanking till the end, but you are too blind to see. Sim, eu vi aquele escrito na parede: “Pesado foste na balança e foi achado em falta” O diabo vai tentar enganar a humanidade até o fijnal, mas você é muito cego para ver...

    Como fanático y coleccionista de alto nivel que me considero de Iron Maiden ¿que puedo decir de este nuevo tema? Simplemente: Más de lo mismo!!!! Aunque de siempre me decante más por Di'anno que por Dickinson, alabo y tengo en un pedestal los discos comprendidos entre el The Number Of The Beast y el Fear Of The Dark, ambos inclusive y bueno de ahí en adelante de todo el repertorio de discos consecutivos, me quedo con canciones sueltas. Personalmente he llegado a un punto en que me satura hasta la saciedad Bruce Dickinson y en directo ya ni lo soporto. Blaze tampoco es que fuera mucho de mi agrado pero bueno, tenia su cosilla y a día de hoy, disfruto más escuchando The X Factor, por poner un ejemplo que los nuevos discos de Maiden. Musicalmente, esta nueva canción comienza prometiendo pero finalmente me resulta un autentico coñazo sobre todo por la parte vocalistica. Espero sorprenderme con la salida en Septiembre del LP aunque creo que lo mejor de todo será la carátula, aunque también añado al respecto que me quedo con la del Maiden Japan.

    Great song but the youtube rendition is crap lofi. Hoping that the album/cd/digital version sounds better. Read several comments here that Bruce is not loud enough....? On my premium sound system Bruce is in the forefront but the drums sound thin... the whole mix sounds like it's from the 1980s. After first listen my thought was that Bruce was controlling the production and giving himself prominence.... Anyway I'm hoping for something better on the album. BTW I do have some perspective... I attended every Iron Maiden concert/tour at least once and some several times. Still own the vinyl too.

    don't care for this type of Maiden, this sounds like a band that has lost the edge it had way back when, i know this is a new area, but maiden has lost something, now if the rest of the album is better than this , then i'll change my mind, but this first impression is not great
