"Look For The Truth" as written by Janick Gers, Bayley Cooke and Stephen Percy Harris....
All my dark dreams
Drift like smoke in the breeze
The fear grips me as I fall towards my sleep
Here comes the nightmare that never ends
Here is the dream that makes monsters of men

In the house of my soul
In rooms of ugliness and cold
Memories locked away
All the doubts and fears I never faced

Now they come again
I am falling down to meet with them
fear within us all
Mine awake and they stand up tall

Look for the truth
Deepest cut of all from you
Knife of the truth
Blade of hatred slicing through

I pray my sleep will break
Maybe this time I won't wake
Weakness I hide so well
This dagger in my mind will tell

It's my final stand
I make a fist out of each hand
To the shadows of the past
Take a breath and I scream attack

    General CommentSounds like someone facing off their past demons and doing some proverbial inner digging to let them all out. It's almost inspirational, but like everything on this album, there's a creeping sense of depression and loss.

    It's not the kind of stuff I expect from Maiden, but not looking at it from that stand point... It's one of the best albums atmospherically that I've ever listened to. I wish people gave this album more credit.
