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

  • This is why Iron Maiden is the #1 heavy metal band ever and sell out all around the world and fly their own jumbo jet to do it.

  • Y'know, Bruce has aged and clearly he can't quite belt it out like the Devil himself the way he could in the 80's and 90's, but there's something magical about his voice even now. It's got this oddly both soft and rough quality to it that lends itself extremely well to this song, and the more I listen to it the more I enjoy it.

  • My dear friends the Rapture is about to happen and the 7 year Tribulation is about to start. Bible prophecy is precise and has never been wrong. An intimate and active relationship with Jesus who IS God is the only way to be saved. The evil taking place has been planned for centuries by the secret societies who serve Satan. What an amazing time to be alive, awake and in love with my beloved Jesus. Please prepare. Thank you for your time. watchman b7t in Colorado THE WRITING IS ON THE WALL

  • Yes, I’ve seen that writing on the wall; “Thou art weighed in the balances, and art found wanting” (Daniel chpt 5). The devil is trying to lure humanking till the end, como ele fez no princípio (eating the fruit) “but you are too blind to see”… Sim, eu vi aquele escrito na parede: “Pesado foste na balança e foi achado em falta” (Daniel cap 5) O diabo vai tentar enganar a humanidade até o final (comer o fruto), “mas você é muito cego para ver”…

    tritonemediatritonemediaPřed 11 hodinami
  • 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.
