the tower lyrics – bruce dickinson

there are 12 commandments
there are 12 divisions
12 are the pagans who have mapped the sky
in the outer circle to the inner sanctum
from the octave at the end of time

the fountain, the trinity
the pilgrim is searching for blood
to look for his own free will
the stone of infinity
washed in the flood

lovers in the tower
the moon and sun divided
and the hanged man smiles
lovers in the tower
the moon and sun divided
let the fool decide

in the atom circle
where we break the stars
hammer into anvil snuffing out the sun
witness all the killing, see the birth of mars
our religion thrown into the fire

the fountain, the trinity
the pilgrim is searching for blood
to look for his own free will
the stone of infinity
washed in the flood

lovers in the tower
the moon and sun divided
the hanged man smiles
lovers in the tower
the moon and sun divided
the magician laughs

lovers in the tower
the moon and sun divided
and the priestess kneels
lovers in the tower
the moon and sun divided
let the fool decide

lovers in the tower
the moon and sun divided
and the hanged man smiles
lovers in the tower
the moon and sun divided
let the fool decide

lovers in the tower
the moon and sun divided
the priestess kneels to receive
lovers in the tower
the moon and sun divided
the magician laughs
