IRON MAIDEN


Be Quick Or Be Dead Lyrics

Covered in sinners and dripping with gilt
Making you money from slime and from filth
Parading your bellies in ivory towers
Investing our lives in your schemes and your powers

You got to watch them - Be quick or be dead
Snake eyes in heaven - The thief's in your head
You've got to watch them - Be quick or be dead
Snake eyes in heaven - The thief in your head...

Be quick! Or be dead!
Be quick! Or be dead!

See...what's ruling all our lives
See...who's pulling strings...
See...what's ruling all our lives
See...who pulls the strings...
I bet you won't fall on your face
Your belly will hold you in place

The serpent is crawling inside of your ear
He says you must vote for what you want to hear
Don't matter what's wrong as long as you're alright
Pull yourself stupid, rob yourself blind

You got to watch them - Be quick or be dead
Snake eyes in heaven - The thief in your head
You've got to watch them - Be quick or be dead
Snake eyes in heaven - The thief's in your head...

Be quick! Or be dead!
Be quick! Or be dead!

You got to watch them - Be quick or be dead
Snake eyes in heaven - The thief's in your head
You've got to watch them - Be quick or be dead
Snake eyes in heaven - The thief's in your head...

Be quick! Or be dead!
Be quick!

Well, the title clearly says it all...be quick or be dead! (Meaning, make a fast move or you'll surely be killed.) Just epic!
