Be Quick or Be Dead Lyrics

Covered in sinners and dripping
With gilt
Making you money from slime
And from filth
Parading your bellies in ivory towers
Investing our lives in your schemes
And your powers

You've got to watch them
Be quick
Or be dead
Snake eyes in heaven
The thief's
In your head
You've got to watch them
Be quick
Or be dead
Snake eyes in heaven
The thief
In your head
Be quick
Or be dead
Be quick
Or be dead

See, what's ruling all our lives
See, who's pulling the strings
I bet you won't fall on your face
Your belly will hold you in place The serpent is crawling inside of
Your ear
He says you must vote for what you
Want to hear
Don't matter what's wrong as long as you're
Alright
Pull yourself stupid and rob
Yourself blind

You've got to watch them
Be quick
Or be dead
Snake eyes in heaven
The thief
In your head
You've got to watch them
Be quick
Or be dead
Snake eyes in heaven
The thief's
In your head
Be quick
Or be dead
Be quick, quick, quick, quick
Or be dead, dead, dead, dead

You've got to watch them
Be quick
Or be dead
Snake eyes in heaven
The thief's
In your head
You've got to watch them
Be quick
Or be dead
Snake eyes in heaven
The thief's
In your head
Be quick
Or be dead
Be quick

Thoughts & Meanings

Given the name of the song and listening to the fast riffing (easy among the 5 heaviest songs by Maiden) you can conclude that it's about having your eyes open, watch them all, from government to friends and be ready to draw that gun!
