Be Quick or Be Dead Lyrics

Artist: Iron Maiden
Album: Ed Hunter

(Dickinson/Gers) 3:23

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
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 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
So pull yourself stupid and rob
yourself blind
