Texty

 

1. Running Free

 

[Harris / Di'anno]

 

Just sixteen, a pickup truck, out of money, out of luck.

I've got nowhere to call my own, hit the gas, and here I go.

 

(REFRÉN)

I'm running free yeah, I'm running free.

I'm running free yeah, Oh I'm running free.

 

Spent the night in an L. A. jail, and listened to the sirens wail.

They ain't got a thing on me, I'm running wild, I'm running free.

 

(REFRÉN)

 

Puller here at the Bottle Top, whiskey, dancing, disco hop.

Now all the boys are after me, and that's the way it's gonna be

 

(REFRÉN)

 

2. Remember Tomorrow

 

[Harris / Di’Anno]

 

Unchain the colours before my eyes,

Yesterday's sorrows, tomorrow's white lies.

Scan the horizon, the clouds take me higher,

I shall return from out of fire.

 

Tears for rememberance, and tears for joy,

Tears for somebody and this lonely boy.

Out in the madness, the all seeing eye,

Flickers above us, to light up the sky.

 

Unchain the colours before my eyes,

Yesterday's sorrows, tomorrow's white lies.

Scan the horizon, the clouds take me higher,

I shall return from out of fire.

 

3. Wratchild

 

[Steve Harris]

 

I was born into a scene of angriness and greed, and dominance and persecution.

My mother was a queen, my dad I've never seen, I was never meant to be.

And now I spend my time looking all around,

For a man that's nowhere to be found.

Until I find him I'm never gonna stop searching,

I'm gonna find my man, gonna travel around.

 

[refrén]

'Cos I'm a wrathchild, well I'm a wrathchild.

Yeah I'm a wrathchild. I'm coming to get you, oooh yeah.

 

Say it doesn't matter ain't nothin' gonna alter the course of my destination.

I know I've got to find some serious piece of mind, or I know I'll go crazy.

But now I spend my time looking all around,

For a man thats nowhere to be found.

Until I find him I'm never gonna stop searching,

I'm gonna find my man, gonna travel around.

 

[refrén]

 

4. Killers

 

[Paul Di'Anno, Steve Harris]

 

You walk through the subway, his eyes burn a hole in your back,

A footstep behind you, he lunges prepared for attack.

Scream for mercy, he laughs as he's watching you bleed,

Killer behind you, his blood lust defies all his needs.

 

My innocent victims are slaughtered with wrath and despise,

The mocking religion of hatred that burns in the night.

I have no one, I'm bound to destroy all this greed,

A voice inside me compelling to satisfy me.

 

I can see what a life's meant to be,

And you'll never know how I came to forsee, see, see.

 

My faith in believing is stronger than lifelines and ties,

With the glimmer of metal my moment is ready to strike.

 

Death call arises, a scream breaks the still of the night,

Another tomorrow, remember to walk in the light!

I have found you, and now there is no place to run,

Excitement shakes me, oh God help me what have I done?!

Oooh yeah, I've done it!

YEEEEAAAAAAAAHHHH!

 

You walk through the subway, my eyes burn a hole in your back,

A footstep behind you, he lunges prepared for attack.

Scream for mercy, he laughs as he's watching you bleed,

Killer behind you, my blood lust defies all my needs.

Oooh look out, I'm coming for you!

Ahahahaha!

 

6. Innocent Exile

 

[Steve Harris]

 

My life is so empty, nothing to live for.

My mind is all confusion, 'cos I defied the law.

When you weren't there to help me, I lost my mind and ran.

I never had no trouble before this all began.

 

My life is so empty, nothing to live for.

My mind is all confusion, 'cos I defied the law.

When you weren't there to help me, I lost my mind and ran.

I never had no trouble before this all began.

 

I'm running away, no where to go.

I'm lost and tired and I just don't know. Yeah...

They say I killed a woman, they know it isn't true.

They're just trying to frame me, and all because of you. Yeah...

První LIVE album skupiny Iron Maiden je zaznamenáno na speciálním formátu EP (extended play), který umožňuje zaznamenat zhruba 10-30 minut hudby, tedy není to plnohodnotné album tak, jak jej známe ve formátu LP, ale umožňuje zaznamenat více materiálu, než je tomu u klasického singlu.

Název alba byl úmyslně zvolen tak, aby jako slovní hříčka připomínal živé album Deep Purple "Made In Japan". Album bylo vydáno v několika verzích, přičemž ta úplně původní (japonská 45 otáčková) obsahuje pouze čtyři songy (chybí Wrathchild). Původně skupina vůbec nechtěla živé album vydávat, ale Japonci si jeho vydání doslova vynutili.

Vlastně se jednalo o poslední nahrávání skupiny se zpěvákem Paulem DiAnnem, kterého zanedlouho nahradil Bruce Dickinson. Oznámení o uvolnění Paula ze skupiny mělo také jednu zajímavou odezvu. Venezuelské vydání tohoto LIVE EP vyšlo v nákladu 25000 kusů se speciálním obalem, na němž Eddie drží v ruce useklou Paulovu hlavu (viz obrázek nahoře).

Až v roce 2008, tedy po 27 letech vyšel celý koncert jako oficiální bootleg na dvoj CD.
