1. The Clairvoyant (4:27)
Feel the sweat break on my brow,
Is it me or is it shadows that are dancing on the walls
Is this a dream or is it now,
Is this a vision or normality I see before my eyes

I wonder why I wonder how,
That it seems the powers getting stronger every day
I feel a strength an inner fire,
But I'm scared I won't be able to control it anymore

There's a time to live and a time to die, when it's time to meet the maker
There's a time to live but isn't it strange that as soon as you're born you're dying There's a time to live and a time to die, when it's time to meet the maker
There's a time to live but isn't it strange that as soon as you're born you're dying

(Solo: Dave Murray)

Just by looking in through your eyes,
He could see the future penetrating right in through your mind
See the truth and see your lies,
But for all his power couldn't foresee his own demise

There's a time to live and a time to die, when it's time to meet the maker
There's a time to live but isn't it strange that as soon as you're born you're dying
There's a time to live and a time to die, when it's time to meet the maker
There's a time to live but isn't it strange that as soon as you're born you're dying....

....and reborn again?
2. The Prisoner (6:08)
I'm on the run, I kill to eat,
I'm starving now, feeling dead on my feet
Going all the way, I'm nature's beast
Do what I want, I'll do as I please

Run fight to breathe, it's tough
Now you see me, now you don't, break the walls, I'm coming out

Not a prisoner, I'm a free man, and my blood is my own now
Don't care where the past was, I know where I'm going...Out!

If you kill me it's self defence,
If I kill you then I call it vengeance
Spit in your eye, I will defy,
You'll be afraid when I call out your name

Run fight to breathe it's gonna be tough
Now you see me, now you don't, break the walls I'm coming out

Not a prisoner I'm a free man, and my blood is my own now
Don't care where the past was, I know where I'm going
Not a number I'm a free man, I'll live my life how I want to
You'd better scratch me from your black book, cos I'll run rings round you

(Solo: Adrian Smith)
(Solo: Dave Murray)

Not a prisoner I'm a free man, and my blood is my own now
Don't care where the past was, I know where I'm going
Not a number I'm a free man, live my life where I want to
You'd better scratch me from your black book, cos I'll run rings round you Not a prisoner I'm a free man, and my blood is my own now
Don't care where the past was, I know where I'm going
3. Heaven Can Wait (7:10)
Can't understand what is happening to me,
This isn't real this is only a dream
But I never have felt, no I never have felt this way before
I'm looking down on my body below,
I lie asleep in the midst of a dream
Is it now could it be the Angel of Death has come for me

I can't believe that really my time has come
I don't feel ready there's so much left undone
And it's my soul and I'm not gonna let it get away

Heaven can wait, heaven can wait, heaven can wait,
Heaven can wait til another day
Heaven can wait, heaven can wait, heaven can wait,
Heaven can wait til another day

I have a lust for the earth below,

And hell itself is my only foe
'Cause I've no fear of dying, I'll go when I'm good and ready
I snatch a glimpse of the lights eternal rays,
I see a tunnel I stand amazed
At all of the people standing there in front of me

Into the paths of rightness I'll be led

Is this the place where the living join the dead?
I wish I knew this was only just a nightmare

Heaven can wait, heaven can wait, heaven can wait,
Heaven can wait til another day
Heaven can wait, heaven can wait, heaven can wait,
Heaven can wait til another day

(Solo: Dave Murray)

Take my hand I'll lead you to the promised land

Take my hand I'll give you immortality
Eternal youth I'll take you to the other side
To see the truth the path for you is decided

(Solo: Adrian Smith)

My body tingles and I feel so strange,
I feel so tired I feel so drained
And I'm wondering if I'll ever be the same again
Is this in limbo or Heaven or Hell?
Maybe I'm going down there as well
I can't accept my soul will drift forever

I feel myself floating back down to Earth
So could this be the hour of my rebirth?
Or have I died or will I wake from dreaming?

Heaven can wait, heaven can wait, heaven can wait,
Heaven can wait til another day
Heaven can wait, heaven can wait, heaven can wait,
Heaven can wait til another day
4. Infinite Dreams (6:03)
Infinite dreams I can't deny them, infinity is hard to comprehend
I couldn't hear those screams, even in my wildest dreams
Suffocation waking in a sweat, scared to fall asleep again
In case the dream begins again

Someone chasing I cannot move, standing rigid nightmare's statue
What a dream when will it end, and will I transcend?
Restless sleep the minds in turmoil, one nightmare ends another fertile
Getting to me so scared to sleep, but scared to wake now, in too deep

Even though its reached new heights, I rather like the restless nights
It makes me wonder it makes me think there's more to this I'm on the brink
It's not the fear of what's beyond, It's just that I might not respond
I have an interest almost craving, but would I like to get too far in?

It can't all be coincidence, too many things are evident
You tell me you're an unbeliever, spiritualist? Well me I'm neither
But wouldn't you like to know the truth of what's out there to have the proof
And find out just which side you're on, where would you end in heaven or in hell?

Help me, help me to find my true self without seeing the future
Save me, save me from torturing myself even within my dreams

(Solo: Dave Murray)
(Solo: Adrian Smith)

There's got to be just more to it than this, or tell me why do we exist?
I'd like to think that when I die I'd get a chance another time
And to return and live again, reincarnate, play the game
Again and again and again and again
5. Killers (5:02)
You walk through the subway, his eyes burn a hole in your back
A footstep behind you, he lunges prepared for attack
Scream for mercy, he laughs as he's watching you bleed
Killer behind you, his blood lust defies all his needs

My innocent victims are slaughtered with wrath and despise
The mocking religion of hatred that burns in the night
I have no one, I'm bound to destroy all this greed
A voice inside me compelling to satisfy me

I can see what a knife's meant to be
And you'll never know how I came to foresee, see, see

(Solo: Dave Murray)
(Solo: Adrian Smith)

My faith in believing is stronger than lifelines and ties
With the glimmer of metal, my moment is ready to strike
Death call arises, a scream breaks the still of the night
Another tomorrow, remember to walk in the light

I have found you, and now there is no place to run
Excitement shakes me, oh God help me what have I done?
Ooh yeah, I've done it again!

You walk through the subway, my eyes burn a hole in your back
A footstep behind you, he lunges prepared for attack
Scream for mercy, he laughs as he's watching you bleed
Killer behind you, my blood lust defies all my needs
Oooh look out, I'm coming for you
Hahahahahah!
6. Still Life (4:38)
Take a look in the pool and what do you see,
In the dark depths their faces beckoning me
Can't you see them it's plain for all to see,
They were there oh I know you don't believe me

Oh...I've never felt so strange,
But...I'm not going insane

I've no doubt that you think I'm off my head,
You don't say but it's in your eyes instead
Hours I spend out just gazing into that pool,
Something draws me there I don't know what to do

Oh...they drain my strength away,
Oh...they're asking me to stay
Nightmares...spirits calling me,
Nightmares...they won't leave me be

All my life's blood is slowly draining away,
And I feel that I'm weaker every day
Somehow I know I haven't long to go
Joining them at the bottom of the pool

Now...I feel they are so near,
I...begin to see them clear
Nightmares...coming all the time,
Nightmares...will give me peace of mind

(Solo: both together)
(Solo: Adrian Smith)
(Solo: Dave Murray)

Now it's clear and I know what I have to do,
I must take you down there to look at them too
Hand in hand then we'll jump right into that pool,
Can't you see not just me they want you too

Oh...we'll drown together,
It...will be forever
Nightmares...forever calling me,
Nightmares...now we rest in peace
7. Listen with Nicko! Part X (11:19)
Ah Ha! Ha! Ha! Haaaa! Maybe I can get out of here now! Oh, this is Nicko's "not alot of people know that,
number ten". When I finish this I can go home! Ahahaha! Ah oh, why do I want to go home? Oh I don't
know, I've been in here so long, oh I'm stuck to the chair and all that kind of good stuff... And I've had so
much fun mumbling on to you guys and telling you jokes and all that stuff and this is the last one! Well at
least I can go and have a bath. Hmmmmm, it's about that time of the year anyway. Hahahaha!
Well! You despicable heathenistic civilictic god knows what else... mumbling jumbling oooh big single
buying public have got in your greasy sweaty horrible... oooh! How is your stereo still spinning around and
that little needle bouncing up and down in all that grime? You have got The Clairvoyant, Prisoner, Heaven
Can Wait, released the 7th of November 1988 chart position number six! Yes! And on the other side you've
got Infinite Dreams, Killers, Still Life - Harris and Murray wrote that song, debuted number twelve, got to
number six again! My goodness! And that was released the 6th of November 1989! Oh, here, have you just
noticed something... something a bit weird about that? Yeah, I don't know whether that Eddie's got anything
to do with that Seventh Son business, but those were both released... those singles, within one year of each
other to the day almost. Released 7th of November '88, Infinite Dreams released 6th of November '89. A bit
strange and all that...
Well look at that! Let's go on, I don't really... I started getting tingles up the back, I don't like that. Dave?
Oh, get out of here. Anyway, no. Hahaha! Jeez, four top ten singles in a year to two years actually. By the
time you lot are listening to this, which is February, I mean as we know Can I Play With Madness was
released the 2nd of March '88 and we're at the sort of end of February. That's close to two years isn't it?
That's bloody good I think, considering we had a year off. I mean, god bless you lot out there, I mean, you
know, to not actually have done anything in a year and we pulled out like a single, you know, Infinite
Dreams... And by the way that was off the new Maiden England video which we shall talk about in a
minute... you know, after a year you pushed it up to number six for us, and god bless you all, because it's
nice to know that you ain't forgotten us. You know.
Anyway! The Clairvoyant, Prisoner... all live renditions, my goodness, of the most severe kind! I should
know, I was there wasn't I! Sooty was there too, did you notice? Anyway, enough of him, stupid soddy bear,
he doesn't know even how to talk or anything else, stupid git! Anyway! The Clairvoyant, Prisoner, and
Heaven Can Wait were recorded in front of you lot as I said I believe earlier on. If I didn't, as I said again on
previous "not alot of people knows that" f'king too f'king bad! A hundred and seven thousand of ya! Wooah!
At Donnington on August the 20th 1988, you can lucky people, you've not only got the live renditions, you
were there, probably! And there was Kiss, David Lee Roth, all kinds of people. My goodness, what a great
day. Anyway, those as I say were recorded and were a special little single release to you from us lot
celebrating the 20th of August for us, because that was... I told you this, we got on stage 20 minutes early
for that gig. We got a guy called Dicky Bell, my goodness the Das Furher Bell we called him because he's
like Hitler - right asshole! Anyway hah! He comes in the dressing room and he goes, "right you horrible lot,
you musician slime, you scumbags, you sleazeballs, get on that stage now, it's time to do your show, you
lazy bastards!" All that sort of stuff, right? "Oh good afternoon Dick, well good evening Dick..." you know,
(unintelligible)... of we go. We were convinced that he'd actually come in the dressing room at Donnington
that evening and told us to get on stage. But he actually didn't. And we got on stage and he goes, "Right!
What the f'king hell are you lot doing up here? Piss of my stage, get up here when I tell ya!" We said,
"Look! Rumour has it we're supposed to be doing a gig. Anyway you stupid prat, you told us to get up here."
"No I f'king didn't!" he said. We said, "You f'king did!" He said "I f'king didn't!" Boof! Stuck us in the
eyeballs! Take that for openers! "Look here Dick, why the hell we up here for if somebody didn't come
around..." He said, "You fucking show him off to me, I'll have a word with him... tell my band to come up
here when I ain't ready!" So, we get on stage, as I said, ten minutes early and we had ten minutes before we
had to get, you know, actual showtime. So, cause we get up there and get warmed up the various bits,
twiddly old exercises, Steve checks is bass, all the boys... and Bruce goes round the back and does the
various gobbing in the old facial mask thing and all that, and ah ha! Oh we all do the bits, you know.
So we actually had an extra ten minutes on stage looking at you lot standing out there waiting for us lot to
come up and do it, and so.... (farting noises).... "You nervous?" "No." "What was that?" "Somebody step on
a duck?" "I dunno!" The air turned blue! We had all these film crews around there trying to film us, and they
soon left, hahaha! They got out of there quick, they knew how to get out while the going was good, you
know what I mean.
So what can I say man, what a fantastic experience! Something that will live with me for the rest of my life,
no doubt about that. And, I mean we played like a cat on a tin roof, and we all thought it was a blazing gig.
But we later found out and we thought the tape was running slow when we recorded it but nevertheless...
enough said about that! Hahaha!
Moving on to Infinite Dreams, Killers, and Still Life! Ohh god it's tormenting me! I'm sitting here, I'm
strapping myself into this chair with the lead and cable from these headphones trying to restrain myself! My
goodness! It was only a year ago that I played these songs for you with the band and all! I miss it so much!
Oh gosh, it debuted at twelve and it got to number six, didn't it, not so many weeks ago! Released the 6th of
November 1989, my gosh, one year to the day of The Clairvoyant's release. A bit uncanny, as I say.
Nevertheless! These three songs were taken from the band's gig at the NEC in Birmingham, which was
recorded around I think Novermber the 28th, 1988... 27th it was... and the 28th, we did two gigs! Hah ha ho!
So, what can I say? We listened... now actually Steve... let me say this, Steve directed and edited this here
Maiden England video, and he set up all the camera angles and told the guys what he wanted, and it took six
months to edit this piece of work, 90 minutes worth of music. And I've got to say this, he done the most
stunning job I think I've ever seen, and I'm saying that... I'm saying that because... I didn't have to crawl to
him because I did that last week, I've got a brown tongue and warm kneepads! Hahahah! No, serious piece
of work! No, as you will agree with me, it is, isn't it? I mean, I haven't seen a music video that's so clear, so
good, and well put together. It's really... I'm proud to have been on that, because it's f'king great. And we
decided actually, when we heard the soundtrack we were really so tempted to realease it as a live album
again, cause it was really good and Martin recorded the band so well in that room, it was really nice. But we
settled for taking a single off of it, because we thought, you know, it wasn't the right time to do another, you
know, a second live album. But you know, it means it's well... I guess for the fans without access to the
video will have a souvenier of the '88 tour won't you? Because you can stick this lot on your f'king stereo, as
long as it ain't screwed up with all the sticky horrible debauched singles you stuck on prior to this, as long as
your stilus still bounces over the grooves and does all that good stuff it'll be allright won't it?
Hey, by the time you've got this lot in your hands, by the way, we shall have been in the studio working on a
brand new album! Yes! Oooh, it's gonna be out later this year. And we may, or we may not, you never
know, have another four top ten singles, thanks to you lot. And I'm going to work it out and say to them...
say to you lot, it's about that time to wind this up. I mean, I've had such a great time speaking to you.... you...
you lot! F'king hell! Oh dear, we'll have to do this again sometime, I'd like to. That's it! No, and... basically
thanking you lot.... you greasy slugs! You.... you grubby lucky little people! No I'm kidding, hahaha!
Thanks for ten great fantastic Maidenesque years of boogalooing through the, you know, the lunchaloms of
this business... getting up there and giving it all the good old heavy metal welly, which we need more of!
Lots of big heavy metal welly's everywhere, squashing all that grief stuff, all that rap shit and all that good
crap that's out there that that Bleedin Bojack Company play all the time and that fucking Mighty Tight Veg
cause they haven't got a clue anymore have they? Anyway! Toodle-do to you lot! Thanks alot to the gov'nor,
'Arry Harris, and Dave Murray, Adrian Smith and Bruce Dickinson, and the gov'nor Rod Smallwood, Andy
Taylor, and all the boys... Tony Wiggins, Dick Bell, and everybody else who's involved, my drum tech
especially, Gadsy! And EMI, for whom without them I wouldn't be here talking to you lot, mumbling and
jumbling, and you wouldn't have had f'king half a dozen, seven or eight, f'king albums of the band, all that
good stuff, to be mumbling jumbling and listening to. So, as I said... oh yeah, is it, no... I was going to tell
you a joke, but I've decided I've run out of them, and they ain't very funny anyway, so bollocks! That's all I
can say to that! And as I say, as 'Arry Harris says, as he says it very well, there's only one 'um, and that's
fuck'um! So, god bless ya, and I'll see ya... if I don't see you in the spring, as I said on one of the other "not
alot of people know that", I'll see you in a mattress!
