BRUCE DICKINSON LYRICS

Back From The Edge

"Back From The Edge" (1996 Single)

1. Back From The Edge
2. Rescue Day
3. God's Not Coming Back
4. Armchair Hero







1. Back From The Edge

A silent river flowing black
Strange attractors, no turning back
Present danger I recall
That pins my senses to the wall

Back from the edge where the darkness has fled
And I'm swimming in light and I'm falling...falling from the edge...
Back from the edge

I fell from grace and that's a fact
I still have urges I fight back
Cold decisions wear me thin
Kill yourself...begin again

Back from the fear that you're not worth a damn
Throw yourself into light and the rush as you spin from the edge
Back from the edge

Now and then I wonder where the faces from my childhood have gone?
Like father like son in your bones it lives on glowing shadows
Back from the edge
Back from the edge




2. Rescue Day

You donít know your jailer, like you, heís never been free
He looks just like you, doesnít he?
Heís got no sense of his own reward
Who needs freedom anyway when youíve got your golden cage?
What I call isolation you might call a passion play (yeah)

CHORUS:
How long have you been here?
You really canít say
How long will you stay, who cares anyway?
Itís a rescue day (x3)
Hey, hey, hey, hey

Whatís the use in fighting battles that you canít lose
Youíre here by an invitation anotherís mad refuse
Escape is a temptation but itís much too tough to choose
Thatís why Iím standing out here
thatís why Iím waiting out here

REPEAT CHORUS

Itís a rescue day, another rescue day
Itís a rescue day, Hey, hey, hey, hey

SOLO

You build walls to keep me out or maybe to keep you in
Which ever jail you choose right now
your house is not your friend (yeah)

REPEAT CHORUS

Itís a rescue day, another rescue day
Itís a rescue day, Hey, hey, hey, hey

Rescue day (x2)




3. God's Not Coming Back

Yeah, standing by the three kings and I thought I saw a star
[mumble]
I could smell the holy spirit, it was coming from the bar
[mumble]

CHORUS:
Itís magic they said, back from the dead
Itís not Christmas yet, Godís not coming back

[mumble]
Godís not coming back [mumble]

You turn my water into wine, you fix my table, itís just fine
Two ton rocks he rolled away, Lepers cured every Sunday
["OK, goodnight, thank you very much,
be back next Sunday, alright?"]

REPEAT CHORUS

SOLO

Hanging with Magdalene
He never dug the little queen
["Sheís a little stunner, you know what I mean?"]
You look like Ian Gillan but I bet you couldnít scream
Aaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhh!!!!!!

REPEAT CHORUS

Godís not coming back (x3)

Oh well...




4. Armchair Hero

You want a toy, you wanna go from your armchair things you know
Secret plans, conspiracy, little people all around
You curse love, you curse hate
your curse you life, you curse your fate
Whatever you can be

If only you could learn (x2)

Narrow-vision, thatís the way, you find it helps you through the day
Too many reasons to believe, no time to understand
The clock is ticking like bomb, subversive ? ? going on
Your only certainty

If only you could learn (x2)
If only, If only, If only, If only, if only you could learn

CHORUS:
Victim gravel on your knees
Victim of your own disease
Make my day, why donít ya?
From your armchair, youíre a hero

SOLO

If only you could learn (x2)
If only, If only, If only, If only, if only you could learn

REPEAT CHORUS

Screaming beauty, suicide
So cynical, you never tried
To understand the reasons
From your armchair youíre a hero

If only you could learn (x2)
If only, If only, If only, If only, if only you could learn
