2 Minutes to Midnight. Produced by Martin Birch. 2 Minutes to Midnight Lyrics. Kill for gain, or shoot to maim But we don't need a reason The golden goose is on the loose And never out of season Blackened pride still burns inside This shell of bloody treason Here's my gun for a barrel of fun For the love of living death. The killer's breed or the Demon's seed The glamour, the fortune, the pain Go to war again, blood is freedom's stain Don't you pray for my soul anymore? 2 minutes to midnight The hands.

2 Minutes to Midnight (оригинал Iron Maiden). 2 минуты до полуночи (перевод Владимир Украинцев из Новосибирска). But don't you pray for my soul anymore. Но не молитесь больше за мою душу. 2 minutes to midnight. За 2 минуты до полуночи. The hands that threaten doom. Руки, которые угрожают гибелью. To kill the unborn in the womb.

The atomic clock, set at 12 minutes to midnight in 1972, regressed thereafter among US/Soviet tensions, reaching three minutes to midnight in 1984 – the year this track was released – and at that time the most dangerous clock reading since 1953. According to Dickinson, the song critically addresses "the romance of war" in general rather than the Cold War in particular. Currently in the year 2018 the clock reads 2 minutes to midnight. The songs B-side, entitled "Mission from 'Arry", is a recording of an argument between Steve Harris.
