LETRA 'SIGN OF THE CROSS'

Eleven saintly shrouded men
Silhouettes stand against the sky
One in front with a cross held high
Come to wash my sins away

Standing alone in the wind and rain
Feeling the fear that is growing
Sensing the change in the tide again
Caught by the storm that is brewing
Feel the anxiety hold off the fear
Some of the doubt in the things you believe
Now that your faith will be put to the test
Nothing to do but await what is coming

Why then is god still protecting me
Even when I don't deserve it
Thought I am blessed with an inner strength
Some they would call it a penance
Why am I meant to face this alone
Asking the question time and again
Praying to God won't keep me alive
Inside my head feel the fear start

They'll be saying their prayers when the moment comes
There'll be penance to pay when it's judgment day
And the guilty'll bleed when the moment comes
They'll be coming to claim
Take your soul away

The sign of the cross
The name of the rose
A fire in the sky
The sign of the cross

They'll be coming to bring the eternal flame
They'll be bringing us all immortality
Holding communion so the world be blessed
My creator my God'll lay my soul to rest

The sign of the cross
The name of the rose
A fire in the sky
The sign of the cross

The sign of the cross
The name of the rose
A fire in the sky
The sign of the cross

The name of the rose
The sign of the cross

Lost the love of heaven above
Chose the lust of the earth below
Eleven saintly shrouded men
Came to wash my sins away

Sobre Sign Of The Cross

  • Este tema épico se inspira en la novela "El nombre de la rosa", que narra la historia de un monje franciscano en la Italia medieval que se defiende de las acusaciones de herejía.

  • La señal de la cruz es un gesto, hecho principalmente por católicos y ortodoxos, en el que una persona dibuja una cruz en su cuerpo.

  • Era la primera vez que Iron Maiden abría un álbum con una épica en lugar de un rockero de ritmo rápido, explicando por qué The X Factour tenía conciertos que empezaban con "Man on the Edge" en su lugar.
