"Trumpets Of Jericho" as written by Bruce Dickinson and Roger Ramirez....
This is the maze of life
This is the maze of death
This is the matrix of eternity

The demon never sleeps
The demon never lies
He beats my heart and leaves no echo

What heavy burden holds me back
Every step along the track?
Fear that reaches deep inside of me

At the trumpets of Jericho

Still the walls remain

At the trumpets of Jericho

Avalon's in chains
This is the river of space
This is the river of time
Chase the dragons of infinity

Atlas stands and laughs
Throws his burden down
Rolls the earth in the inferno

Fingers holding onto cracks
The howling wind that blows us back
Sucked into the grinding wheels of hell

At the trumpets of Jericho

Still the walls remain

Blow the trumpets of Jericho

Still the walls remain

At the end of the rainbow

There the grail remains

Sound the trumpets of Jericho

Avalon's in chains
As they drag you down
In your clothes of lead
See the golden light
Flashing overhead
Mocking you

Do you know who you are
In your robes of skin?
How many creatures live inside you?

Man is born forever free
But is everywhere in chains
Trapped inside this earthly prison cell

At the trumpets of Jericho

Still the walls remain

At the trumpets of Jericho

Avalon's in chains

At the trumpets of Jericho

There the grail remains

At the trumpets of Jericho

Still the walls remain

Still the walls remain

Still the walls remain

Still the walls remain

The silence of the tomb

The wheel of fortune round

    General CommentThis song is about people who have let the demon live inside their heart and build a wall that even the trumphet of Jericho could not break that wall. Man is a living vessel that we have a choice if we let God or the demon dwell in us. Heavy lyrics by Bruce. Bruce was able to mix myth context with bible references to produce such a positive song.

    the Message: every sin you commit even if it is little, it serves as a brick to the wall inside your heart that continually build until there's no more space for the spirit of God to dwell inside you.

    nice work Bruce! Up with Irons!

    General CommentI have to disagree with you josepherdon. This song is about failure, a thing many Alchemists have encountered. It's about the procedure's they are going through, but how they never reach their ultimate goal; at the trumpets of Jericho still the walls remain...
