Lyrics
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

    I’m a long time maiden fan, but I don’t like this particular song. I also don’t like eddie’s new look.

    This videoclip is sick 🤘 and the song... What can I say. Since the bass enters you know it's maiden. Same style, same quality - perfect 👌

    The fat Donald Trump false prophet figure in the convertible with tank tracks on the back being pulled by a single, starving donkey through a toxic wasteland of once-great symbols of progress and technology with everyone else staggering along behind him starving and almost dead and then eventually end up liquified by the green force field around the Tower of Belshazzar while their evil leader enters harmlessly...too perfect. Samurai Eddie taking him out at the end was icing on the cake. Up the irons!!!

    Generic classic rock anyone? This is barely metal at all. Sounds like some thing Molly Hatchet would’ve released in 1987… 👎🏽

    Why do metal songs sound so... clean now? This sounds like Judas Priest's Firepower album a few years back. Something about the warmth is gone. I can't hear the bass either.

    Eddie have been portrayed in many forms, ancient egyptian statue, futuristic cyborg, tree demon, pilot... and now he comes in nija form. That's the uniqueness of Eddie. I like the way a heavy metal band use animation as thier video clips. The only things bothers me is how the bikes got no brakes at all? Haha

    Damn guys you still got if. This is one of the best Maiden songs in over 20 years. This is the first time in many years that I have heard a song and than got this "what did I just hear" and than listened to it 4-5 times in a row. That has not happened since the 90's
