Bruce Dickinson – Accident of Birth


The vocals, the riffs, the lyrics and the arrangement of this song are spectacular.

Artist: Bruce Dickinson
Album: Accident Of Birth
Year: 1997

Lyrics:
Journey back to the dark side, back into the womb
Back to where the spirits move like vapor from the tomb
The center of the cyclone, blowing out the sun
Break the shackles of your union to the light

I might’ve had a brother
As I was born, they dragged him under
To the other side of twilight
He’s waiting for me now

Nativity was lost on me
I didn’t ask, I couldn’t see
What created me
What and where and how

Welcome home – it’s been too long, we’ve missed you
Welcome home – we’ve opened up the gates
Welcome home – to your brothers and sisters
Welcome home – to an accident of birth

Feel our bodies breathing as you try to stop believing
There’s nothing you can do about your shadows
You can fight us, you are like us
And your body will betray you
Lay down and die like all the others

Where are the angels and their wings of freedom?
Jesus had his day off when they pulled you through…

Welcome home – it’s been too long, we’ve missed you
Welcome home – we’ve opened up the gates
Welcome home – to your brothers and sisters
Welcome home – to an accident of birth

Vision’s growing dim as the daylight fades away
I’m spinning, twisting, black
Well, it’s your dying day

Welcome home – it’s been too long, we’ve missed you
Welcome home – we’ve opened up the gates
Welcome home – to your brothers and sisters
Welcome home – to an accident of birth

Welcome home – it’s been too long, we’ve missed you
Welcome home – we’ve opened up the gates
Welcome home – to your brothers and sisters
Welcome home – to an accident of birth
