I got the keys to view at number 22
Behind my green door there's nothing to see
Stone cold sober and sitting in silence, laid
Back and looking for sympathy
I like a girl who knows where she's bound
I don't like girls who've been hanging around

Hooks in you, hooks in me, hooks in the ceiling
For that well hung feeling
No big deal, no big sin, strung up on love I
Got the hooks screwed in


She's tied up she can't come to the phone
You must have got your wires crossed 'cause she ain't home
Knock on wood, you know I like that sound
She never could keep her feet on the ground


Right on the money got it wrapped up tight
New ideas for the decor tonight
Gonna make this house a preservation zone
Gonna set her in concrete set her up on her own

    General CommentThis song is a call back song of 22 acacia avenue.

    Its all about how the owner of the place is turning it into a bondage palor. GREAT AINT IT.

    I'm trying to remeber where i heard the meaning from, i believe it was an interview with maiden i read i while back, but i could be wrong.

    General CommentI once read an interview with Bruce. He told he went to see a house and saw hooks in the ceiling of a room and asked the real estate agent where it was for. It so happens the selling couple were into S & M and that's how Bruce got inspired for this song.

    My OpinionI think the whole Charlotte the Harlot saga is quite original. I actually like the idea ;) What other band writes songs linked together in a saga about a prostitute? It sort of seems unexpected out of Iron Maiden...but this is a very good song. In fact, I'm listening to it right now. The chorus must be my favourite part, and you always get a great solo out of the Maiden boys (Even if it is Janick Gers and Dave Murray, but they make a good pair...and then when Smith comes back the trio is great!). This song sort of scared me at first, it just reminded me of...something...but anyways I think it's a different song, as is the whole No Prayer for the Dying album, and Iron Maiden did change throughout the years...they started off different and ended different, but I love it all. Great material. Up the irons!

    My InterpretationI think it might be someone is watching charlotte then goes on to stalking then puts her into bondage and rapes her.
