​Flash Of The Blade

This song is by Iron Maiden and appears on the album Powerslave (1984).

This song has been covered by Arachnes under the title "Flash of the Blade".
As a young boy chasing dragons, with your wooden sword so mighty.
You're St. George or you're David and you always killed the beast.
Times change very quickly,
And you had to grow up early,
A house in smoking ruins and the bodies at your feet.

You'll die as you lived
In a flash of the blade,
In a corner forgotten by no one.
You lived for the touch
For the feel of the steel,
One man, and his honour.

The smell of resined leather
The steely iron mask
As you cut and thrust and parried at the fencing master's call.
He taught you all he ever knew
To fear no mortal man
And now you'll wreak your vengeance in the screams of evil men.

You'll die as you lived
In a flash of the blade,
In a corner forgotten by no one.
You lived for the touch
For the feel of the steel,
One man, and his honour.

You'll die as you lived
In a flash of the blade,
In a corner forgotten by no one.
You lived for the touch
For the feel of the steel,
One man, and his honour.

Bruce Dickinson
