2 Minutes to Midnight

Oh, hell. I was going to resume posting with a summary of my week in Val Thorens. But… The world has a way of fucking you up. Seriously.

So here’s a lyric instead, courtesy of Iron Maiden (Smith/Dickinson):

Kill for gain or shoot to maim
But we don’t need a reason
The Golden Goose is on the loose
And never out of season
Some blackened pride still burns inside
This shell of bloody treason
Here’s my gun for a barrel of fun
For the love of living death

The killer’s breed or the Demon’s seed,
The glamour, the fortune, the pain,
Go to war again, blood is freedom’s stain
But don’t you pray for my soul anymore

2 minutes to midnight
The hands that treaten doom
2 minutes to midnight
To kill the unborn in the womb

The blind men shout “Let the creatures out
We’ll show the unbeliverers.”
The napalm screams of human flames
Of a prime time Belsen feast … yeah!
As the reasons for the carnage cut their meat and lick the gravy
We oil the jaws of the war machine and feed it with our babies.

The killer’s breed or the Demon’s seed
The glamour, the fortune, the pain
Go to war again, blood is freedom’s stain
But don’t you pray for my soul anymore

2 minutes to midnight
The hands that treaten doom
2 minutes to midnight
To kill the unborn in the womb

The body bags and little rags of children torn in two
And the jellied brains of those who remain to put the finger right on you
As the madmen play on words and make us all dance to their song
To the tune of starving millions to make a better kind of gun

The killer’s breed or the Demon’s seed
The glamour, the fortune, the pain
Go to war again, blood is freedom’s stain
But don’t you pray for my soul anymore

2 minutes to midnight
The hands that treaten doom
2 minutes to midnight
To kill the unborn in the womb

Midnight
Midnight
Midnight
It’s all night

Midnight
Midnight
Midnight
It’s all night
