Iron Maiden - 2 Minutes To Midnight


Click "More" to view lyrics Kill for gain or shoot to maim But we don't need a reason The Golden Goose is on the loose And never out of season Some blackened pride still burns inside This shell of bloody treason Here's my gun for a barrel of fun For the love of living death The killer's breed or the Demon's seed, The glamour, the fortune, the pain, Go to war again, blood is freedom's stain But don't you pray for my soul anymore. 2 minutes to midnight, The hands that treaten doom. 2 minutes to midnight, To kill the unborn in the womb. The blind men shout "Let the creatures out We'll show the unbelievers." The napalm screams of human flames Of a prime time Belsen feast ... yeah! As the reasons for the carnage cut their meat and lick the gravy We oil the jaws of the war machine and feed it with our babies. The killer's breed or the Demon's seed, The glamour, the fortune, the pain, Go to war again, blood is freedom's stain But don't you pray for my soul anymore. 2 minutes to midnight, The hands that treaten doom. 2 minutes to midnight, To kill the unborn in the womb. The body bags and little rags of children torn in two And the jellied brains of those who remain to put the finger right on you As the madmen play on words and make us all dance to their song To the tune of starving millions to make a better kind of gun. The killer's breed or the Demon's seed, The glamour, the fortune, the pain, Go to war again, blood is freedom's stain But don't you pray for my soul anymore. 2 minutes to midnight, The hands that treaten doom. 2 minutes to midnight, To kill the unborn in the womb. Midnight Midnight Midnight It's all night Midnight Midnight Midnight It's all night



Matt Barnes
wrong. this song is about the clock used by the board of atomic scientists to emphasize how close humanity is to annihilating itself. The closest the clock got to midnight was 23:58 in 1959, where the Americans and the soviets both tested atomic weapons within 9 months of each other.
Noah Brown
For those who dont know the song is about the "doomsday clock" the closer it is to midnight the closer the world is too nuclear war
Ian Hoswell
If you watch this is at 11:58, then it's two minutes to midnight. But for the last 4 minutes of the song, you're LIVING AFTER MIDNIGHT. And if you're watching this underwater at the same time, then you're DOWN TOO LONG IN THE MIDNIGHT SEA. Ah, heavy metal references...

"We all oil the jaws of the war machine And feed it with our babies." This song is always relevant because you are never too young to die in a pointless war.
mike hunt

The scary thing is as of later on today 3:30pm UK time the Doomsday Clock actually will be set at 2 minutes to midnight! The closest it has ever been to the apocalypse since 1953.
Fraktal
Fun fact: as of this week, the doomsday clock was set to 2 minutes for the first time since the Cold War.
