"Kill Devil Hill" as written by and Roger Ramirez Bruce (gb 2) Dickinson....
Blood brothers of angels, now hear us
We earthbound your offspring, don't fear us
God willing will rise up be near you
So open your arms now and take us

So we beleaving our dreams like the Icarus of old
The plans we made for the bold and the blue wide beyond
there's nowhere to hide, there's no going back now

As the wind wips over the hillside
Twenty knots over Kill Devil Hill
Steady wind blows over the sand
Twenty knots over Kill Devil Hill
As the breezed went straight as an arrow
It begun over Kill Devil Hill
Gasoline and the wind in the wires
Kill Devil Hill and the way to the sky

We stand on this seashore and wonder
What madness, what secrets we plunder
Our failure we run from discovery

The wreckage of heaven lies on your sand
First chance is abandoned
With woodstring and wire we can barly control her
Desire for destinys arrow

As the wind wips over the hillside
Twenty knots over Kill Devil Hill
Steady wind blows over the sand
Twenty knots over Kill Devil Hill
As the breezed went straight as an arrow
It begun over Kill Devil Hill
Gasoline and the wind in the wires
Kill Devil Hill and the way to the sky

    General CommentYes. Kill Devil Hill was the location where the Wright Brothers flew their plane. This song seems to recount their efforts.

    General CommentThis song is flat out incredible. As stated above, it's about the first flight of the Wright Brothers in 1903. The first verse seems to be indicating that the achievement of flight would bring us closer to divinity. You get almost a mythological sense of the event. The chorus is just so stirring and Bruce delivers it with such power and conviction.
