"Moonchild" as written by Bruce Dickinson and Adrian Frederick Smith....
Seven deadly sins
Seven ways to win
Seven holy paths to hell
And your trip begins

Seven downward slopes
Seven bloodied hopes
Seven are your burning fires
Seven your desires

I am he the born-less one
The fallen angel watching you
Babylon, the scarlet whore
I'll infiltrate your gratitude
Don't you dare to save your son
Kill him now and save the young ones
Be the mother of a birth strangled babe
Be the devils own, Lucifer's my name

Moonchild hear the mandrake scream
Moonchild open the seventh seal

I count the heads of those unborn
The accursed ones I'll find them all
And if you die by your own hand
As a suicide you shall be damned
And if you try to save your soul
I will torment you, you shall not grow old
With every second and passing breath
You'll be so alone your soul will bleed to death

Moonchild hear the mandrake scream
Moonchild open the seventh seal
Moonchild you'll be mine soon child
Moonchild take my hand tonight

The twins they are exhausted, seven is this night
Gemini is rising as the red lips kiss to bite
Seven angels seven demons battle for his soul
When Gabriel lies sleeping, this child was born to die

One more dies one more lives
One baby cries one mother grieves
For all the sins you will commit
You'll beg forgiveness and none I'll give
A web of fear shall be your coat
To clothe you in the night
A lucky escape for you young man
But I'll see you damned in endless night

Moonchild hear the mandrake scream
Moonchild open the seventh seal
Moonchild you'll be mine soon child
Moonchild take my hand tonight

    General CommentThe whole album is a concept.

    Moonchild- Lucifer comes to warn the parents of the Seventh Son, basically saying that all resistance is futile.
    Infinite Dreams- The Father of the Seventh Son, him self a Seventh Son, begins to have dreams that confuse him.
    Can I Play With Madness- The Father seeks a prophet for an answer to his strange visions.
    The Evil That Men Do- The Seventh Son is conceived, but the details in this song are very vague.
    Seventh Son of a Seventh Son- The Seventh Son is born, and begins to show signs of supernatural powers.
    The Prophecy- The Seventh Son learns that he is "The Chosen One", and part of a prophecy.
    The Clairvoyant- The Seventh Son begins to harness his powers, but loses control. This is probably the cause of his death.
    Only The Good Die Young- The Seventh Son is dead, and the cycle begins again. This may be a sentiment on how mankind is inable to learn from it's mistakes.
