Brighter Than A Thousand Suns

We are not the sons of God
We are not His chosen people now
We have crossed the path He trod
We will feel the pain of it beginning

Shadow fingers rise above
Crying figures stab the desert sky
Oh behold the power of man
On its tower, ready for the fall

Locking hands together well
Raise a city, build a living hell
Join the race to suicide
Listen for the tolling of the bell

Out of the universe
A strange life is born
Unholy union
Trinity reformed

Yellow sun, it's evil twin
In the black the wings deliver him
We will split our souls within
Atom seed to nuclear dust is riven

Out of the universe
A strange life is born
Unholy union
Trinity reformed

Out of the darkness
Brighter than a thousand suns

Bury your morals
And bury your dead
Bury your head in the sand
E=MC squared you can relate
How we made God with our hands

Whatever would Robert
Have said to his God
Of how we made war with the sun
E=MC squared you can relate
How we made God with our hands

All nations are rising
Through acid veils of love, and hate
Chain letters of Satan
Uncertainty us all to this

All nations are rising
Through acid veils of love, and hate
Cold fusion and fury

Divide and conquer while ye may
Others preach and others fall and pray
In the bunkers where we'll die
There the executioners they lie

Bombers launch with no recall
Minutes warning of the missile fall
Take a look at your last day
Guessing you won't have the time to cry

Out of the universe
A strange love is born
Unholy union
Trinity reformed

Out of the darkness
Brighter than a thousand suns

Holy Father we have sinned

There you go. Hes spliced the band playing at Abbey Rd with footage from a documentary I watched a few months ago...I think he did a good job.

I love the lyrics, powerful..

Brither than a Thousand Sons is one of my fav Iron Maiden songs ever. I have seen them playing it live last summer during their 2007 tour and it is just amazing

I had the Abbey Road footage some time ago, and they played another song too (Hallowed By The Name), but I have never seen the added scene. Great Job, and thank you Gale for letting me see it.

Mmmm..interesting, but who are the Revisionist, Im assuming american scholars..(I will look it up)... but either veiw, the traditional of theirs, is a justification for the death of innocents...

After reading 'Disaster Capitalism' i tend to see things from an economic stand point... Here the telling sentence about the 'Manhatten project' and the possible misappropration of money..
