Songfacts®: You can leave comments about the song at the bottom of the page.
This song is based on a quote from William Shakespeare's tragedy Julius Caesar: "The evil that men do lives after them, the good is oft interred with their bones." Bruce Dickinson says this sometimes before performing the song live, but with the quote slightly reversed. (thanks, Todd - Timmins, Canada)

This mysterious and wildly eclectic singer/songwriter talks about some of his most memorable songs and collaborations.
Jules Shear - "All Through The Night"
