  • Weaving a thread 'round your heart and your soul
    Deceiving your eyes and delaying your goal
    Ships in the night when they pass out of sight
    Deliver their cargo of earthly delights

    To the women and children, the souls of the dead
    I've opened their book and no mercy is shed
    You want forgiveness and you want it cheap
    I don't give redemption, rewards for the meek

    Suffering evil when you pay the price of fame
    There isn't a God to save you if you don't save yourself
    You can't blame a madman for this if you go insane
    Give me the strength so I carry on

    Trapped in the web, but I cut the threads
    Show you the gates of tomorrow
    Trapped in the web, no mercy is shed
    Show you the gates of tomorrow
    Trapped in the web, slaves to the dead
    Show you the gates of tomorrow
    Trapped in the web, but I cut the threads
    Show you the gates of tomorrow

    Suffering evil when you pay the price of fame
    There isn't a God to save you if you don't save yourself
    You can't blame a madman for this if you go insane
    Give me the strength so I carry on

    Trapped in the web, but I cut the threads
    Show you the gates of tomorrow
    Trapped in the web, slaves to the dead
    Show you the gates of tomorrow
    Trapped in the web, no mercy is shed
    Show you the gates of tomorrow
    Trapped in the web, but I cut the threads
    Show you the gates of tomorrow Writer/s: Bruce Dickinson, David Harris Stephen, Janick Gers
