Iron Maiden – Hallowed Be Thy Name


“Hallowed Be Thy Name” written by Steve Harris for the 1982 album “The Number of The Beast”. The song describes a man’s thoughts just before being sent to the gallows. He begins to feel terror and realizes he really is afraid of dying, despite claims that he’s not (“tears flow, but why am I crying?/after all, I’m not afraid of dying/don’t I believe that there never is an end?”). At the end of the vocal section, the man gets executed; this is followed by a long instrumental section, culminating in his ambiguous final words, “Hallowed be thy name”.
