[00:0.00]Iron Maiden - Empire Of The Clouds
[01:0.00]===> twiterorist420 [02:0.00]
[02:09.00]To ride the storm, to an empire of the clouds
[02:14.00]To ride the storm, they climbed aboard their silver ghost
[02:23.00]To ride the storm, to a kingdom that will come
[02:30.00]To ride the storm, and damn the rest, oblivion
[02:40.00]Royalty and dignitaries, brandy and cigars
[02:46.00]Grey lady giant of the skies, you hold them in your arms
[02:56.00] The millionth chance they laughed, to take down his majesty's craft
[03:0.00]"To India," they say, "magic carpet float away," an October fateful day
[03:35.00]Mist is in the trees, stone sweats with the dew
[03:42.00]The morning sunrise, red before the blue
[03:49.00]Hanging at the mast, waiting for command
[03:54.00]His majesty's airship, the R101
[04:01.00]She's the biggest vessel built by man, a giant of the skies
[04:08.00]For all you unbelievers, the titanic fits inside
[04:14.00]Drum roll tight, her canvas skin, silvered in the sun
[04:20.00]Never tested with the fury, with the beating yet to come
[04:27.00]The fury yet to come…
[04:32.00]In the gathering gloom, the storm rising in the west
[04:38.00]The coxswain stared into the plunging weather glass
[04:48.00]We must go now, we must take our chance with fate
[04:55.00]We must go now, for a politician he can't be late
[05:0.00]The airship crew awake for thirty hours at full stretch,
[05:11.00]But the ship is in their backbone, every sinew, every inch
[05:16.00]She never flew at full speed, a trial never done
[05:22.00]Her fragile outer cover, her Achilles would become
[05:28.00]An Achilles yet to come...
[05:34.00]Sailors of the sky, a hardened breed
[05:41.00]Loyal to the king, and an airship creed
[05:47.00]The engines drum, the telegraph sounds
[05:53.00]Release the cords that bind us to the ground
[06:0.00]Said the coxswain, "Sir, she's heavy, she'll never make this flight."
[06:05.00]Said the captain, "Damn the cargo! We'll be on our way tonight."
[06:11.00]Groundlings cheered in wonder, as she backed off from the mast
[06:18.00]Baptizing them her water, from the ballast fore and aft
[06:24.00]Now she slips into our past…
[10:0.00]===> twiterorist420 [10:0.00]
[12:33.00]Fighting the wind as it rolls you
[12:35.00]Feeling the diesels that push you along
[12:38.00]Watching The Channel below you
[12:41.00]Lower and lower, into the night
[12:44.00]Lights are passing below you
[12:47.00]Northern France, asleep in their beds
[12:50.00]Storm is raging around you
[12:53.00]A million to one, that's what he said
[13:39.00]Reaper standing beside her
[13:41.00]With his scythe cuts to the bone
[13:44.00]Panic to make a decision
[13:47.00]Experienced men, asleep in their graves
[13:51.00]Her cover is ripped and she's drowning
[13:54.00]Rain is flooding into the hull
[13:57.00]Bleeding to death and she's falling
[14:0.00]Lifting gas is draining away
[15:12.00]"We're down, lads!" came a cry, bow plunging from the sky
[15:18.00]Three thousand horses silent as the ship began to die
[15:24.00]The flares to guide her path ignited at the last
[15:31.00]The empire of the clouds, just ashes in our past
[15:37.00]Just ashes at the last…
[16:06.00]Here lie their dreams as I stand in the sun
[16:11.00]On the ground where they built, and the engines did run
[16:17.00]To the moon and the stars, now what have we done?
[16:23.00]Oh the dreamers may die, but the dreams live on
[16:37.00]Dreams live on
[16:42.00]Dreams live on
[17:16.00]Now a shadow on a hill, the angel of the east
[17:22.00]The empire of the clouds may rest in peace
[17:29.00]And in a country churchyard, laid head to the mast
[17:37.00]Eight and forty souls, who came to die in France…
