I don't even think that you can call Iron Maiden 100% real metal. Iron Maiden is beyond that and always has been.

I've always enjoyed reading lyrics, trying to do them more than just lyrics, trying to have some more meaning in them. I know a lot of people are just happy to have a kind of broken word lyrics. I just wonder why, there's no reason why they can't at least attempt to do something a bit better.Bruce Dickinson
