Oh Look, Krill!

Oh don't worry. Whales don't eat clownfish, they eat krill.

Powerslave

Into the Abyss I’ll fall – the eye of Horus
Into the eyes of the night – watching me go
Green is the cat’s eye that glows –
In this Temple
Enter the risen Osiris – risen again.

Tell me why I had to be a Powerslave
I don’t wanna die, I’m a God,
Why can’t I live on?
When the Life Giver dies,
All around is laid waste,
And in my last hour,
I’m a Slave to the Power of Death.

When I was living this lie – Fear was my Game
People would worship and fall –
Drop to their knees.
So bring me the blood and
Red wine for the one to succeed me,
For he is a man and a God –
And He will die too.

Now I am cold but a ghost lives in my veins,
Silent the terror that reigned –
Marbled in stone
A Shell of a man God preserved –
From thousand ages,
But open the gates of my hell –
I’ll strike from the grave

Tell me why I had to be a Powerslave
I don’t wanna die, I’m a God,
Why can’t I live on?
When the Life Giver dies,
All around is laid waste,
And in my last hour,
I’m a Slave to the Power of Death.
Slave to the Power of Death…
Slave to the Power of Death…

~Iron Maiden, Powerslave (1984)
