Lord Of The Flies Lyrics

Artist: Iron Maiden
Album: X Factor

I don't care for this world anymore
I just want to live my own fantasy
Fate has brought us to these shores
What was meant to be is now happening

I've found that I like this living in danger
Living on edge it makes feel as one
Who cares now what's right or wrong,
it's reality
Killing so we survive
Wherever we may roam
Wherever we may hide
We've got to get away

I don't want existence to end
We must prepare ourselves for the elements
I just want to feel like we're strong
We don't need a code of morality

I like all the mixed emotion and anger
It brings out the animal the power you can feel
And feeling so high on this much adrenalin
Excited but scary to believe what we've become

Saints and sinners
Something within us
We are lord of flies

Saints and sinners
Something willing us
To be lord of the flies

This relates to Freud's theory of the id, the ego and the super ego.
The id is the desire without thought. The ego is wanting those desires but not so much so that you can't see past those desires, you also consider the consequences your actions would have on your self and you do not consider others. The super ego thinks not just about them selves but others as well and what is socially acceptable and what is not. They tend to look ahead and consider what they are doing. The super ego still has desires but is able control them. The super ego and the id are completely opposite. In LOTF Jack is the id, Ralph is the ego and Piggy is the super ego. Freud's theory is that the id in us takes over the ego and the super ego in us when we are isolated and taken away from civilization. This song shows this exactly.

I think this song is about how the world is going very slowly to an end.
Now we need to be ourself and be aware of the future.

by Max on 9/14/2008 7:10pm
wow thats quite looked into. (if that means anything in english)
by Dreada on 9/28/2008 1:49pm
it has to do with the evil within mankind...if u read the book lord of the flies you will understand the song quite easily...
by Troy on 10/8/2008 7:58pm
This song is nice and if you ever read the book the Lord of the Flies or seen or read the movie/book The Mist it really speaks of what happens if you take away rules and guidelines.
by shady on 10/10/2008 4:49pm
this is about the book 'lord of the flies' of william golding !
by Tanni on 11/7/2008 5:31am
I think this song is telling people that it's time to get all selfish, evil and brutal to survive in this life. So he compared the human beings to flies...
by cody on 11/14/2008 9:22pm
It's about the book
by Some guy on 11/15/2008 10:35pm
"Lord of Flies" is sometimes used as a synonym for Satan. It would come from the Hebrew word Beelzebub.
by chris on 11/16/2008 8:47pm
Clearly about the book.
by drake on 11/18/2008 9:46pm
yea its about lotf
but the book is alludes lots of religos theory, and messages about personall idenity and human nature
by Zane on 11/24/2008 10:30pm
William Golding is a god amongst men.
by sam on 2/19/2009 8:42am
its based on the fantastic book/movie 'Lord of the Flies'
it is a must read!
by Hvfjgsy on 2/22/2009 10:58pm
Lof man
by Mallory on 3/2/2009 4:47pm
Wow, nobody knows anything unless they have been in Mr. Shank's 9th grade Enlglish class. This is completely about the id, ego, and super ego and the psychoanalytic theories. The book is filled with these concepts and so is this songs. People should read the book, and if you have, I highly reccomend looking up Sigmund Freud and his concepts and theories. It's amazing how many allusions there are and how much it relates.

by Matt on 4/1/2009 12:28pm

by James on 5/17/2009 10:01am
Great song when im doing my English lit revision for the exam on tuesday. Up the irons!
by Persephone on 5/21/2009 11:51am
The Lord of the flies is the name of the demon beelzebub who is often confused to be satan, but it's one of the most powerful demons alongside of satan. The whole idea of the lord of the flies book ... the self-governing, look at the religious and morals implied. In essence, this song "who cares what's right and wrong"... "saints and sinners, something willing us to be the lord of the flies"
They are definitely not talking about the book when they're saying that last part...something willing us TO BE the lord of the flies. Not to be like the "idea" not to be like the characters from the books. But TO BE the lord of the flies. Google Beelzebub.
by jo on 5/31/2009 12:11pm
this song is extremaly super duper gagalishious
by George on 6/30/2009 6:57am

by Vegard on 8/30/2009 2:42pm
One of the best songs ever.
Not sure if I like Bruce or Blaze version best though.

yes, it is about the book, Lord of the Flies, by William Golding.
Google it if you want to know more about it :)
by Brazil Rio on 9/21/2009 2:39pm
"One of the best songs ever" [2]

Golding told us about "the evil that is inside us", human beings. The book and the movie are amazing, like the music.
by Alex on 10/15/2009 8:12pm
This helped mw with a paper
by Slash on 10/29/2009 7:50pm
lol "the lord of flies" is my favorite book
by john on 11/19/2009 5:20pm
its based on the book, not freud or satan.
by It is based on the SATAN on 5/4/2010 4:38am
as Belzebub iz litteraly translated to greek "Lord of the flies"...and the story is more or less similar to the revelations
by Haku Tatak on 8/28/2010 4:17pm
Excellent movie, haven't read the book yet. The Iron Maiden Lyrics has a strong proclaimation of how a human turns into wolf. Great! Many thanks to Sir William Golding who gifted a great story to the mankind.
by Mojum Riba on 10/17/2010 1:59pm
one of the excelent piece of litreture. Degredation of human soul n animial instinct in present in everyhuman beings. Humans so called a "nobel beast". In times of adversity humans tends to be react worse than animals.
by wtf on 1/9/2011 1:48am
okay really? this song may be about the book, but the book sucked so instead of trying to analyze the lyrics or talk about your freaken ideas about Frued how about you up the irons and shut the fuck up about anything other than the song.
by Haku Tatak on 1/22/2011 5:02am
I thought I canít pretend not to reply you since youíve got this exasperating yet powerful combination of words forming a sentence to make a shriek of baby demanding attention. Thatís good anyway but the book is good. Hmm the book lord of the flies is good the book Lord of the Flies by Sir William Golding is good Ö oh! Really itís awesome and great. Thank you. P.S Please even if you have to use a better Titled fake ID.

by Somebody on 7/15/2011 10:05pm
"instead of trying to analyze the lyrics or talk about your freaken ideas about Frued how about you up the irons and shut the fuck up about anything other than the song."

But that is what the song is about, so they are talking about the song ... :) - And yes, book/film/song/whatever, it is all about the id/ego/superego which you will probably learn if you ever study psychology.
by judas gone on 7/16/2011 1:23pm
fuch you motha fuc..., wats ur problem, why the f... you think you're the best to study psychology. somebody smash this f.....
