“Lord of the Flies” We must prepare ourselves for the elements by Iron Maiden I just want to feel like we're strong We don't need a code of morality I don't care for this world anymore I just want to live my own fantasy I like all the mixed emotion and anger Fate has brought us to these shores It brings out the animal the power you can feel What was meant to be is now happening And feeling so high with this much adrenaline Excited but scary to believe what we've become I've found that I like this living in danger Living on the edge it makes feel as one Saints and sinners Who cares what's right or wrong, Something within us it's reality We are lord of the flies Killing so we survive Wherever we may roam Saints and sinners Wherever we may hide Something willing us gotta get away! To be lord of the flies I don't want existence to end 1. This song was based on the novel Lord of the Flies.

The song says, “Fate has brought us to these shores, what was meant to be is now happening.” Do you believe fate brought the boys to the island or was there some other reason they ended up there? 3. “Lord of the flies” is a translation of the word “Beelzebub” which is what Jesus calls Satan when He is being tempted in the desert, so “lord of the flies” is something evil.

Why or why not? “Believe" To keep on breathing for by The Bravery So give me something to believe The faces all around me they don't smile they just Something's always coming you can hear it in the crack ground Waiting for our ship to come but our ships not It swells into the air coming back With the rising We do our time like pennies in a jar Rising sound What are we saving for And never comes but shakes the boards and rattles all the doors There's a smell of stale fear that's reeking from our What are we waiting for skins. The drinking never stops because the drinks absolve I am hiding from some beast our sins But the beast was always here We sit and grow our roots into the floor Watching without eyes But what are we waiting for? Because the beast is just my fear That I am just nothing Now its just what I've become So give me something to believe What am I waiting for Cause I am living just to breathe Its already done And I need something more 4.
