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

    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

    I think what really surprises about this video was that it was done by two Pixar executives; Mark Andrews and Andrew Gordon. Definitely goes to show that just because you work for a company that specializes in family films, does not mean you can let loose your more adult side in animation😂.
