Trumpets of Jericho



This song is about people who have let the demon live inside their heart and build a wall that even the trumpet of Jericho could not break that wall. Man is a living vessel that we have a choice if we let God or the demon dwell in us. Heavy lyrics by Bruce. Bruce was able to mix myth context with bible references to produce such a positive song.
Myth - Avalon, Atlas, myth of the Holy Grail (thru an apparition) reached to Avalon.
Bible - Trumpets of Jericho that broke the walls, Creatures live inside Man

Trumpets of Jericho
Bruce Dickinson

This is the maze of life
This is the maze of death
This is the matrix of eternity
These are the facts of life,
We live and die towards eternity of salvation or damnation.

The demon never sleeps
The demon never lies
He beats my heart and leaves no echo
this is someone who have let the demon inhabit inside his heart that all of the words of the demon (who is the father of all lies) is the truth for him. He have accepted the lies of the demon as the truth.

What heavy burden holds me back
Every step along the track?
Fear that reaches deep inside of me
this is how wickedness has been the way of life that people keeps coming back for more

At the trumpets of Jericho
Still the walls remain
At the trumpets of Jericho
Avalon's in chains
The Trumpets of Jericho and the Myth of the Mystical power of Avaloncan't even break thu the hard wall inside the heart of the wicked man

This is the river of space
This is the river of time
Chase the dragons of infinity

Atlas stands and laughs
Throws his burden down
Rolls the earth in the inferno
The Myth of Atlas carrying the earth has already given up because of the heavy sins that the people committed. He already given upand throws the earth in the inferno.

Fingers holding onto cracks
The howling wind that blows us back
Sucked into the grinding wheels of hell
this is how people are already sucked into doing evil things.
just like the queen mab from the movie Merlin speak of..
"with evil around me, I can do nothing but evil"
There's no turning back if you're already wicked as hell.

At the trumpets of Jericho
Still the walls remain
Blow the trumpets of Jericho
Still the walls remain
At the end of the rainbow
There the grail remains
Sound the trumpets of Jericho
Avalon's in chains
The Trumpets of Jericho, the legend of Avalon and the mystical power of the grail can't penetrate or break the wall of the heart of a wicked man

As they drag you down
In your clothes of lead
See the golden light
Flashing overhead
Mocking you
It is as written that the creator will laugh at you in the end if you continue to disregard His will

Do you know who you are
In your robes of skin?
How many creatures live inside you?
It's true that many spirit can dwell inside a man,
just like the 7 spirits used to dwell inside Mary Magdelene

Man is born forever free
But is everywhere in chains
Trapped inside this earthly prison cell
We have the choice to choose between good and evil.
You will be trapped once you selected doing evil instead of good.

At the trumpets of Jericho
Still the walls remain
At the trumpets of Jericho
Avalon's in chains
At the trumpets of Jericho
There the grail remains
At the trumpets of Jericho
Still the walls remain
Still the walls remain
Still the walls remain
Still the walls remain
The silence of the tomb
The wheel of fortune round

the Message: every sin you commit even if it is little, it serves as a brick to the wall inside your heart that continually build until there's no more space for the spirit of God to dwell inside you.

nice work Bruce! Up with the Irons!
