Man On The Edge

This song is by Iron Maiden and appears on the album The X Factor (1995) and on the compilation album Best Of Beast (1996).

Original video
The freeway is jammed and it's backed up for miles
The car is an oven and baking is wild
Nothing is ever the way it should be
What we deserve we just don't get, you see
A briefcase, a lunch and a man on the edge
Each step gets closer to losing his head
Is someone in heaven? Are they looking down?
'Cause nothing is fair, just you look around

Falling down
Falling down
Falling down...

He's sick of waiting, of lying like this
There's a hole in the sky for the angels to kiss
Branded a leper because you don't fit
In the land of the free, you can live by your wits
Once he built missiles, a nation's defence
Now he can't even give birthday presents
Across the city, he leaves in his wake
A glimpse of the future, a cannibal state

Falling down
Falling down
Falling down...

The freeway is jammed and it's backed up for miles
The car is an oven and baking is wild
Nothing is ever the way it should be
What we deserve we just don't get, you see
A briefcase, a lunch and a man on the edge
Each step gets closer to losing his head
Is someone in heaven? Are they looking down?
Nothing is fair, just you look around

Falling down
Falling down
Falling down...

Falling down
Falling down
Falling down...
