Written by Smith / Dickinson

Across a painted desert lies a train of vagabonds
All that’s left of what we were it’s what we have become
Once our empires glorious but now the empire’s gone
The dead gave us the time to live and now our time is done

Now we are victorious we’ve become our slaves
A land of hope and glory building graveyards for the brave

Have you seen the writing on the wall
Have you seen that writing
Can you see the riders on the storm
Can you see them riding ~ can you see them riding

Holding on to jury is that all we ever know
Ignorance our judge and jury all we’ve got to show
From Hollywood to Babylon ~ holy war to kingdom come
On a trail of dust and ashes ~ when the burning sky is done
A tide of change is coming and that is what you fear
The earthquake is a coming but you don’t want to hear
You’re just too blind to see

Have you seen the writing on the wall
Have you seen that writing
Can you see the riders on the storm
Can you see them riding
Can you see them riding. . . Riding next to you

    This video/song is a masterpiece. I wasn't expecting anything this good to come out, let alone from Maiden. (Nothing against Maiden AT ALL, up those fucking irons!!!) but these guys are in their 60s... and here they are still some of the best in the game. Madness.

    You tell the other sheeps who thinks everything Maiden does is pure Gold. This whole song is flat and never takes off. Boring riffs, bad vocals, silly cliché messages. I'm a Maiden fan, but this is NOT good at all. Composed in a hurry.
