The Number Of The Beast by Iron Maiden

Woe to you... (Oh) earth and sea
For the Devil sends the beast with wrath
Because he (1)__________ the time is short...
Let him who hath understanding reckon
The number of the beast for it is a human number
It's number is six (2)______________ and sixty six

I left alone, my mind was blank
I needed time to think
To get the memories from my mind
What did I see, can I believe?
That what I saw that night was real
And not just fantasy
Just what I saw
In my old dreams
Were they reflections
Of my warped mind staring back at me
'Cause in my dreams
It's always there
The (3)________ face that twists my mind
And brings me to despair
Yeah!!!

The night was black, was no use holding back
'Cause I just had to see
Was someone watching me
In the mist, dark figures (4)________ and twist
Was all this for real, or just some kind of hell
Six, six, six the number of the beast
Hell and fire was spawned to be released

Torches blazed and sacred chants were praised
As they start to cry, hands held to the sky
In the night, the fires burning bright
The ritual has begun, Satan's work is done
Six, six, six the number of the beast
Sacrifice is (5)__________ on tonight

This can't go on, I must inform the law
Can this still be real or just some crazy dream
But I feel (6)__________ (7)______________ the (8)________ chanting hordes
They (9)________ to mesmerize
Can't (10)__________ their eyes
Six, six, six the number of the beast
Six, six, six the one for you and me

I'm coming back, I will return
And I'll possess your body and I'll make you burn
I have the fire, I have the force
I have the power to make my evil take its course
