Out in the street somebody's crying, Out in the night the fires burn, Maybe tonight somebody's crying, Reached the point of no return. Oh, my eyes they see but I can't believe, Oh, my heart is heavy as I turn my back and leave. Like the eagle and the dove, Fly so high on wings above, When all you see can only bring you sadness, Like a river we will flow, On towards the sea we go, When all you do can only bring you sadness, Out on the sea of madness.
Somewhere I hear a voice that's calling, Out in the dark there burns a dream, You got to hope when you are falling, To find the world that you have seen. It's madness, The sun don't shine On the sea of madness, There ain't no wind to fill your sails, Madness, When all you see can only bring you sadness On towards the sea we go Edit Lyrics.
Sea Of Madness song meanings. Add your thoughts 10 Comments. General Comment Having studied this for a while I believe that Sea Of Madness is about the point at which the soul separates from the body point of physical death after an accident eg Car or Motorbike and the spirit is surveying what just happened.

East, Tom 7 May Official Nintendo Magazine. Iron Maiden: In Profile. UK: EMI. En Vivo! Archived from the original on 5 May Archived from the original on 22 January This and Seventh Son are their best of the 80s imo. Opening track is absolutely killer and Alexander the Great is a classic. Zach Johnson , May 11, Frosst , Sir Talbot Buxomly , Galley and 3 others like this.
Location: Finland. Last edited: May 11, SammyJoe , May 11, Location: Pacific Beach, CA. Who the F picked heaven can wait? I picked the first and last songs. I think it's easily their worst album of the 80's, however that speaks more to the quality of their other albums than this one.
I still give this one a spin at times and enjoy it. Considering it came after Powerslave and before the brilliant 7th son, I just can't see how this one measures up. IT would be many metal band's finest album. Location: New Zealand. Sea of Madness all the way. The driving beat and the riffs are some of their best.
This album contains my favorite Maiden drum sounds and there is something special about Nicko's playing on this album. Most people prefer 7th Son, but to me this album has more balls. Alternative4 , May 11, Location: Irmo, SC. Sea of Madness is a gem. You know when bands make a song that is different from what they usually do and are incredibly successful doing it? That's the case here.
Hard rocking and galloping when it needs to be, uplifting and beautiful in other moments, all the while offering a great display of musicianship and mastery of their craft. A truly progressive song. Another anthem is found in Heaven Can Wait, a classic Harris penned number with a great sing along chorus. The band takes us, once again on a few mood swings throughout this song. The Loneliness of the Long Distance Runner is a very fast song, bringing to mind the strides of a runner in a race.
The song is so relentless you can almost feel breathless when it ends. Great arrangments and vocals here too, and McBrain never gives up in this one. I suspect he is the runner here. Next comes another gem as in my description above , Stranger in a Strange Land. Right from the start, you cannot help but either headbang or tap your foot, and when the guitars kick in, you just do it harder. Such a mean and original riff!!! The ambiences created through the song are amazing, as is the way the song builds up.
It is surprising this song fits so well in the context of the album considering it was Murray's only contribution. What better way to end an album than an epic? Alexander The Great is a biographical resume as much as it is an amazing epic, complete with time changes, odd time signatures, complex arrangments and yet again an amazing deliver from Dickinson.
The production fits the theme of the album, and at that time was unlike anything previously heard. Futuristic, spacey, yet hard and heavy. This is one of Maiden's really prog albums, and as such, deserves a rating as a prog album alone. Considering the lasting influence this album has on prog, metal and prog metal, considering the groundbreaking factor and the amazing quality of the material presented here and the high caliber of every musician involved, this album deserves nothing less than five stars.
This album presents a slight change of style in Iron Maiden's music. And one of the factors that I love the most about this band is showcased here to a great extent: the ability to create ultra-fast metal pieces but filled with lots of catchy, even beautiful melodies. If there is something that no metal band has managed to do is to write fast music so tuneful.
All the bands that have hopelessly tried to emulate Maiden mostly power metal and progressive metal outfits are yet to match the wonderful experience that some tracks in this album can produce in a fan, that sense of hearing music that belongs to you , metal that's yours. A fan gets to become one with the songs, and the songs are designed to do that. More on that later. The main verse is faster, like a horse galloping at full speed the bass takes us through this journey.
At every moment we're dazzled by short but glorious little melodies by the guitars. Dickinson sings even better than usual here. It has a long instrumental section with a great guitar solo and some truly inspired bass work. Another fantastic opener by the Irons, maybe not as instantly memorable as others like "Aces High", but surely more complex and easy to grow with time.
Speed, energy, beautiful guitar melodies, a sense of weird melancholy and nostalgia, the years that passed us by are gone and the song makes us pay them homage but also leave them as relics of an ancient, dead past, making us look for the future. Smith and Murray just blow their axes away with a magnificent display of guitar playing and one of the best solos in the band's catalogue. The chorus can't be more memorable.
This song is the stuff of legends. Sea Of Madness 9. The chorus is very good again, but the relentless stop- and-go main riff of the song is what truly makes it instantly recognizable.
The middle section is slow and quiet, more melodic, atmospheric almost, with another great display of prowess by Harris. Great song. Another grower. It starts very quietly, haunting, only strings bass and guitars it's what I mean; they work with strings after all.
Then another energetic verse with a breathless delivery by master Dickinson. The chorus is very likeable but rather generic. The song is going great but as it is up to this point would be just another good fast song. Then we start going upwards, the guitars stars dueling with each other, the battle seems unstoppable. A sudden change in speed, a little slower, Dickinson sings and then we're invited to join in a true anthemic moment made for stadium chants and for uniting all the thousands of fans of The Beast.
A moment that, if maybe not incredibly fantastic from a musical point of view, some may see it as cheesy, but is just magical because it unites the music and the fan, both are made into one. The speed comes back and the guitars' fight reaches a climax where neither one seem to be able to win, and they just join forces, as we already did with this music. This rollercoaster of a songs started like a regular decent track and by the end became one of the all-time greats by The Beast.
The bass goes up and down, one guitar plays chords, the other a soaring high melody while the hi-hat provides the touch of heart-less mathematics to such a warm start. The main verse starts, Dickinson delivers as usual, some great double melodies by the guitars ensue, melody after melody. Stranger In A Strange Land 8. The use of guitar synths is clear here, the song is not so fast as the preceding ones, but is more atmospheric, even futuristic at moments.
The texturing work is just great as in every track in this album. The chorus is good, not great. This song is another proof as to the progressiveness in Maiden's metal. Harris' most important influences were Squire and Rutherford among others, as he himself has recognized and, most importantly, as the music SHOWS.
Very good slow track. Only the slightly average chorus deters it from being excellent. And then suddenly one of those legendary lightning-fast riffs by The Beast attacks. McBrain adds to the energy while Dickinson forces his throat to the limits. A fantastic fast track, very melodic all the craziness notwithstanding. At moments sounds like a "progged-up" version of "Killers", the title track of Maiden's sophomore release.
Guitar melodies fly over the marching snare-drum rhythm and the pedal. Then the main verse comes into scene.
Instrumental sections abound, guitar solos inhabit this epic track as the most honorable of citizens of the land of melodic metal. Another superb song that deserves a perfect rating, even if it hasn't reached my heart as much as the other two, but maybe that's because of exposure, as this is another example of why I love Maiden. The first true masterpiece by The Beast, it gets a 5 from me, and I think the rating is in accordance to PA guidelines, for this is a true progressive album.
Recommended for: Every Iron Maiden fan and every Metal fan. But give it time to grow with you as it did with me. Musically the band has perfected their sound on this album.
The playing is tighter than the proverbial duck's arse, and the band members are experienced enough to add the extra touches to ordinary tunes to make them sound good, adding small nuances and touches in turn to make the songs sound interesting; as can best be heard on opening track "Caught Somewhere in Time".
Adding the synth sounds to the music also elevates many tracks from the realm of the ordinary to something better, where the slightly softer edges of the synth guitar riffs adds flavout and atmosphere to Iron Maidens trademark harmonic and melodic soloing and riffing, and giving a warmer touch to Maidens pacey songs, where the fast paced bass guitar and drumming do sound better accompanied by the slightly softer synth guitars.
A new aspect to Iron Maiden's sound on this album, or at least an aspect much developed here, are several examples of songs where Bruce Dickinson's vocals are used as a melodic instrument in itself.the 1star is for the newly released Vinyl version. got the original vinyl on release, and wow what a record. often over looked by some cracking underrated songs on here, and that synthey guitar sound sounded great in and probably the best maiden album cover. my original vinyl got chewed up up by a dog, so i replaced it with the iffy first /5().
