Sabaton – Afraid To Shoot Strangers (Iron Maiden Cover)

Afraid To Shoot Strangers

Lying awake at night I wipe the sweat from my brow
But it's not the fear 'cos I'd rather go now
Trying to visualize the horrors that will lay ahead
The desert sand mound a burial ground

When it comes to the time
Are we partners in crime?
When it comes to the time
We'll be ready to die

God let us go now and finish what's to be done
Thy Kingdom Come
Thy shall be done
On Earth

Trying to justify to ourselves the reasons to go
Should we live and let live
Forget or forgive

But how can we let them go on this way?
The reign of terror, corruption must end
And we know, deep down there's no other way
No trust, no reasoning, no more to say

Afraid to shoot strangers
Afraid to shoot strangers

Afraid... Afraid to shoot strangers
Afraid... Afraid to shoot strangers
Afraid... Afraid to shoot strangers
Afraid... Afraid to shoot strangers
Afraid... Afraid to shoot strangers
Afraid... Afraid to shoot strangers
Afraid... Afraid to shoot strangers
Afraid...

Afraid to shoot strangers
Afraid to shoot strangers
Afraid to shoot strangers
Afraid to shoot strangers
Thanks to the mixing of styles "Afraid To Shoot Strangers" one of the most interesting songs in the album "The Last Stand" turned out, because it is very different from other songs. Iron Maiden is also a very popular heavy metal band, but even for it a similar composition is not peculiar. Therefore, in the performance of Sabaton, it has acquired new colors. Long melodic losses and a certain Gothic atmosphere emphasizes the complex moral choice of the lyric character in the song.
