"City Of Bones" as written by and Blaze Bayley....
The flood of death all around
But from your soul is the sound
The sound of defiance and pride
To prove your spirit's alive
The seventh symphony calls
To beyond city walls
Surrounded for 900 days
But you will never give way

You fight
You stand and fight
Fight for your life
Stand and fight, stand and fight, for your life

Frozen so hard is the ground
The fallen lay all around
A great patriotic war
Starvation taking you all
Eat anything to survive
Because you refuse to die
Dying and dead everywhere
But you refuse to dispair

You fight
You stand and fight
Fight for your life
Stand and fight, stand and fight, for your life

Don't take a single step back
While you are under attack
You stand against tyranny
With just your humanity
You stand, your backs to the wall
Forsaken ready to fall
You won't surrender your pride
Your pride is holding the line

You fight
You stand and fight
Fight for your life
Stand and fight, stand and fight, for your life

    General CommentIt seems the creation of Iron Maiden affected Blaze too much. So now he writes songs about history and wars. This one is about a well-know Russian city, which is here dubbed as the City of Bones, former Leningrad, St. Petersburg. It was under the siege by Germans for 900 days; and Soviet army, despite starvation and shortage of ammunition, managed to hold it.
