By “Iron Maiden”

As the sun breaks above the ground

An old man stands on the hill.

As the ground warms to the first rays of light,

A birdsong shatters the still.

His eyes are ablaze,

See the madman in his gaze.

Fly on your way like an eagle,

Fly as high as the sun

On your wings like an eagle,

Fly and touch the sun!
