Aces High
Iron Maiden Lyrics


There goes the siren that warns of the air raid
There comes the sound of the guns sending flak
Out for the scramble, we've got to get airborne
Got to get up for the coming attack
Jump in the cockpit and start up the engines
Remove all the wheel blocks, there's no time to waste
Gathering speed as we head down the runway
Got to get airborne before it's too late

Running (running), scrambling (scrambling), flying (flying)
Rolling (rolling), turning (turning), diving (diving), going in again
Running (running), scrambling (scrambling), flying (flying)
Rolling (rolling), turning (turning), diving (diving)

Run
Live to fly
Fly to live
Do or die
Won't you run?
Live to fly
Fly to live
Aces high

Move in to fire at the mainstream of bombers
Let off a sharp burst and then turn away
Roll over, spin 'round to come in behind them
Move to their blindsides and firing again
Bandits at eight o'clock move in behind us
Ten ME-109s out of the sun
Ascending and turning our spitfires to face them
Heading straight for them, I press down my guns

Rolling (rolling), turning (turning), diving (diving)
Rolling (rolling), turning (turning), diving (diving), going in again
Rolling (rolling), turning (turning), diving (diving)
Rolling (rolling), turning (turning), diving (diving)

Run
Live to fly
Fly to live
Do or die
Won't you run?
Live to fly
Fly to live
Aces high

ACES HIGH

There goes the siren that warns of the air raid

Then comes the sound of the guns sending flak
Out for the scramble, we've got to get airborne
Got to get up for the coming attack

Jump in the cockpit and start up the engines
Remove all the wheelblocks, there's no time to waste
Gathering speed as we head down the runway
Got to get airborne before it's too late

Running, scrambling, flying
Rolling, turning, diving
Going in again
Running, scrambling, flying
Rolling, turning, diving

Run
Live to fly, fly to live, do or die
Won't you
Run, live to fly, fly to live
Aces high

Move in to fire at the mainstream of bombers
Let off a sharp burst and then turn away
Roll over, spin round to come in behind them
Move to their blindsides and firing again

Bandits at 8 o'clock are moving behind us
Ten ME-109's out of the sun
Ascending and turning, our spitfires to face them
Heading straight for them I press down my guns

Rolling, turning, diving
Rolling, turning, diving
Going in again
Rolling, turning, diving
Rolling, turning, diving

Run
Live to fly, fly to live, do or die
Won't you
Run, live to fly, fly to live
Aces high



Ricardo Lugo

"Lucharemos hasta el final, lucharemos en francia, lucharemos en los mares y en los océanos, lucharemos cada vez con más firmeza y gran fuerza en el aire, defenderemos nuestra isla, cualquiera que sea el precio, lucharemos en las playas, lucharemos en las pistas de aterrizaje, lucharemos en el campo y en las calles, lucharemos en las colinas, nosotros nunca nos rendiremos!".

Ahí va la sirena que advierte la avanzada aérea
le sigue el sonido de las metralletas fumigando
saliendo al zafarrancho tenemos que tomar vuelo
tenemos que levantarnos debido al ataque que se viene

Salta en la cabina y enciende motores
remueve los bloqueos en las ruedas no hay tiempo que perder
reuniendo velocidad mientras nos encabezamos hacia la pista de despegue
tenemos que tomar vuelo antes que sea demasiado tarde

Corriendo, combatiendo, volando
rodando, volteando, clavando
Volviendo a entrar de nuevo
corriendo, combatiendo, volando
rodando, volteando, clavando

corre, vivir para volar, volar para vivir, hacer o morir, no quisieras tu correr, vivir para volar,
Volar para vivir,
La altura de los ases

Entra para hacer fuego sobre el grupo principal de bombarderos
Descarga una ráfaga aguda y luego aléjate
rueda sobre ti, gira alrededor y entra detrás de ellos
muévete hacia sus puntos ciegos y dispara de nuevo.

Bandidos a las 8 en punto se colocán tras nosotros
10 m. e. - 109`s salidos del sol
ascendiendo y virando nuestras escupideras de fuego para encararlos
encabezándonos directo hacia ellos yo presiono mis armas

rodando, volteando, clavándo
rodando, volteando, clavándo
volviendo a entrar de nuevo!

rodando, volteando, clavándo
rodando, volteando, clavándo

corre, vive para volar, vuela para vivir, hazlo o muere, no quisieras tu correr,
vive para volar, vuela para vivir
La altura de los ases.

That bass playing is excellent. Steve Harris is a bass maniac.

Tiago Tanno

I agree but all the members are on the same level - as a drummer I look at nicko mcbrain and his technique is extremely difficult to follow even over time everyone in the band is increasingly polished

Shawn Bruce

He Invented Heavy rock Bass.

The Nowhere Stairs

Yeah he is very tight.

Jeriko

steve harris is the bass god

Iron maiden is a good history teacher.
Isn't it?

AmandaHugandKiss411

Bruce Dickinson actually has a degree in History and is now a History Professor.
True fact, look it up.
Yeah and he was in the military as a fighter pilot.
As they say write about what you know.
He's the real deal people!

EMMA BIANCA LAURA SILVA RAMOS

I agree!!!!

Johnny Hash

@Aditya Pandey Well,your thoughts so whatever. Did I say there's something wrong in celebrating certain historical figures and events? Their lyrics are simple and their songs are mediocre overall. Their discography is like some bad version of The Trooper written over and over again. Boring.

Aditya Pandey

@Johnny Hash "Just take a battle and turn it into a glorifying spew of words"

laughs in The Price of a Mile, Great War, The Final Solution, A Lifetime of War, Uprising, Hearts of Iron, Future of Warfare, Wehrmacht

Also, nothing wrong with celebrating the heroes that fought in those brutal wars. They do not shy away from touching controversial topics either. I usually try to respect the other's opinion as much as possible, but this one was the single shittiest take on Sabaton.
