"Lord of Light" as written by Bruce Dickinson, Stephen Percy Harris and Adrian Frederick Smith....
There are secrets that you keep
There are secrets that you keep
There are secrets that you tell to me alone
I can't reach things I can't see
You don't see this strange world
Quite the same as me
Don't deny me what I am
Nothing hidden still you fail to see the truth
These are things you can't reveal

These are things you can't reveal

We are part of some strange plan
Why the slaughter of the brotherhood of man
Infernal sacrifice of hell
Fire breathing lead the way
Mounds of bodies as they all burn into one
Revenge is living in the past
Time to look into a new millennium

Spiral path leads through the maze
Down into the fiery underworld below
Fire breathing lead the way
Lucifer was just an angel led astray

[Chorus x2:]
Free your soul and let it fly
Give your life to the Lord of Light
Keep your secrets and rain on me
All I see are mysteries

We are not worthy in your black
And blazing eyes
We gather demons in the mirror every day
The bridge of darkness casts a
Shadow on us all
And all our sins to you we give this day

Others wait their turn
Their lives were meant to last
Use yours wisely as the light is fading fast
Free your soul and let it fly
Mine was caught I couldn't try
Time returns again to punish all of us

We are cast out by our bloody father's hand
We are strangers in this lonely promised land
We are the shadows of the one unholy ghost
In our nightmare world the only one we trust

[Chorus x2]

    General Comment"Lord of Light" is a collection of related short stories by Roger Zelazny, telling a larger story focusing on a messiah/god-figure called Mahasamatman.

    Mahasamatman (or 'Sam') leads a campaign against the established gods of the world.

    General CommentI agree that this song is about the Devil but it also deals with revalations. Where it says"Time to look into a new millennium." In the bible it says the god will live on earth for a thousand years and the devil and all the evil people will be in hell. So it talks about what the underworld will loook like. Like bodies burning into one and the stairway to hell and stuff.

    General CommentI agree more with IronBlack. It definetly sounds like that more than the other theory.
