Eagle Fly Free – Helloween (1988)

This song comes from an album that’s a real milestone in metal genre history.

The lyrics, quite simple to understand and explain, are really inspirating and tickling about some ancestral major questions.

First listened when I was only six 🙂

People are in big confusion
They don’t like their constitutions
Everyday they draw conclusions
And they’re still prepared for war

Some can say what’s ineffective
Some make up themselves attractive
Build up things they call protective
Well your life seems quite bizarre

In the sky a mighty eagle
Doesn’t care ‘bout what’s illegal
On its wings the rainbow’s light
It’s flying to eternity

Eagle fly free
Let people see
Just make it your own way
Leave time behind
Follow the sign
Together we’ll fly someday

Hey, we think so supersonic
And we make our bombs atomic
Or the better quite neutronic
But the poor don’t see a dime
Nowadays the air’s polluted
Ancient people persecuted
That’s what mankind contributed
To create a better time

In the sky a mighty eagle
Doesn’t care ‘bout what’s illegal
On its wings the rainbow’s light
It’s flying to eternity

Eagle fly free
Let people see
Just make it your own way
Leave time behind
Follow the sign
Together we’ll fly someday

Victim of fate – Helloween 1987 (Kai Hansen)

Versione del 2003 eseguita dai Gamma Ray – Live Barcellona (Skeletons in the closet)

I was born in the rotten part of the town
The biggest trap I had seen
Wherever you’ll go and wherever you’ll get to
Evil is around
My mother’s a bitch my father’s a killer
Gettin’ paid for a murder
Fightin’ and strugglin’ the whole day
The only way to survive
Wanted from law but they’ll never catch me
I’d much rather die in this bloody war
Chorus – Fly high touch the sky
Never know the reason why it ends
Victim of fate
I had to kill people to save my own life
I don’t wanna get to hell
I started at the bottom
I’m heading for the top
I’ll never return I’ll never go back
To the Goddamn part of the town
Headhunters won’t get me ‘cause I’m not stupid
But this ain’t the life I dreamt of
Wanted from law but they’ll never catch me
I’d much rather die in this bloody war
Chorus
What now lonly man who’s standig
In the shadow of the streets
You’re left alone with no helpin’ hand beside you
You hide from the daylight livin in darkness
You got no friends you can trust nobody
Except for yourself
The only shade that’s beside you
Is the shade of Lucifer
Laughing with a satanic smile
And his friend death sharpens his sickle
You don’t wanna die do you ? But you will
You will burn in hell
Chorus
Fly high, touch the sky, you will die !
