Interesting New Video From Iron Maiden: The Writing On The Wall

h/t The Feral Irishman

Across a painted desert lies a train of vagabonds
All that’s left of what we were it’s what we have become
Once our empires glorious but now the empire’s gone
The dead gave us the time to live and now our time is done

Now we are victorious, we’ve become our slaves
A land of hope and glory building graveyards for the brave

Have you seen the writing on the wall?
Have you seen that writing?
Can you see the riders on the storm?
Can you see them riding?
Can you see them riding?

Holding on to fury is that all we ever know
Ignorance our judge and jury all we’ve got to show
From Hollywood to Babylon ~ holy war to kingdom come
On a trail of dust and ashes ~ when the burning sky is done
A tide of change is coming and that is what you fear
The earthquake is a coming but you don’t want to hear
You’re just too blind to see

Have you seen the writing on the wall?
Have you seen that writing?
Can you see the riders on the storm?
Can you see them riding?
Can you see them riding, riding next to you?

Have you seen the writing on the wall?
Have you seen that writing?
Can you see the riders on the storm?
Can you see them riding?

Have you seen the writing on the wall?
Have you seen that writing?
Can you see the riders on the storm?
Can you see them riding?
Can you see them riding, riding next to you?

OK, a better synopsis from Feral Irishman’s site: My take on video is below. Somehow the bible never felt more metal! This is an animated version of the bible’s Revelations, with Eddie adaptation of course. The man in beginning in robe is The second coming (Jusus 2.0), he sees it is time to release the four horsemen. Only certain individuals are allowed to the party if they can pass to get the mark of the beast (green scanner thing). You see the leaders of the nations, America where democracy is denoted by flag flipped as becoming backwards (where right is wrong and wrong is right). The British Parliament men show care more about themselves then the people they serve, the cripplee astronaut symbolizes Russia whose space conquests have cost their society endless and shown nothing but further poverty for people as result, and china whose rich leader are dragging down the people who literally are the ones who make them wealthy and powerful and the golden dragon he rides is the religious symbol here. At the end, Jesus sacrifices himself into Wrath and unleashes the four horsemen, turning those who sold their souls into demons, and then unveils their leader as the devil he is and plasters him to the wall for all to witness his weakness as God ultimately prevails. At the end, Eddie (aka God’s Wrath) starts the world all over again with the Adam and Eve that he saved. I speculate Adam and Eve were in the liquid because they were born near perfect beings, or cloned, or something like that who gave the false prophet his everlasting youth. The apple Eddie gives them is the fruit of Knowledge to start over again the right way on earth.

Interesting coming from Iron Maiden (love them and was able to see them a few times as a much younger man).

And “Eddie as a Samurai Jesus” sold it for me. They still produce amazing music. Very prophetic for them but not surprising. They always seem to capture the “mood” of things.

No, Eddie is Satan. In the end he give the apple to Adam and Eve.

Agreed. This is a very accurate description of the end of days…but as you said it is twisted.
Jesus will be much scarier.

Agreed. Satan gave it to Eve (not really an apple, but fruit of the loom), so, not end of this age, but the beginning of the one we are in.

Not falling for their traps is the race. Seeing what else is taking place world wide besides the narrative that they are force feeding us is paramount.
Earthquakes, hail storms, weather extremes, animal die offs. Earths magnetic reversal. Do you think we men can stop what has been written and foretold? Live right, Love Right, Stand in and for the Truth, Hold fast.
