Can I play with Madness?
    #1617750 - 06/08/03 05:59 AM (13 years, 5 months ago)

Iron Maiden - Can I play with Madness ..
Cant help but think there is a psychedelic meaning behind it, like ..
"Can I play with Madness? ..............
Give me the sense to wonder, to wonder if im Free? ...
Give me a sense of wonder, to know I can believe....
" ..
"Can I play with Madness, the Pupet stared at his crystal ball? .. There is no vision there at all.." ...
"Can I play with madness? The Pupet looked at me and laughed at me .. I said, Can I play with madness? .. he said your too blind to see .. he said your too blind to see..." ....
"I screamed loud to the old man, I said, dont lie dont say you dont know .. I said you'll pay for this mischeif, on this world or the next .. Oh, then he looked with a crazy glance, all the Hellfires raged in his eyes .. You wanna know the Truth son? Lord, I'll tell you the Truth, your Soul is gonna burn in a lake of fire .......
He said Your too blind to see. "..
" .... Listen to me said the Prophet .."

resembles something deep .. like Datura or Salvia .. something which is hard to see, "Your too blind to see" .. something which you cannot find meaning out of .."There is no vision there at all" .. the madness refered to, as an experience beyond the normal realm.. "The Pupet" refering to the spiritual force behind any journey, not being the actual force, but just a vague, hard to explain force, a Pupet in sense. Anyone got any ideas? .. I believe there is alot of meaning behind Iron Maiden songs, most psychedelic and spiritual, and that post about Infected Mushroom sparked the idea =)

my fav thing about classic maiden is the way they have subjects on their songs like the crimean war / charge of the light brigade (the trooper) to greek myths (flight of icarus) to the world war II battle to save britain (aces high and tailgunner) to nuclear apocalypse (2 minutes to midnight)

I always read can I play with madness for its face value; describing a young man who tries to learn the future from an old prophet with a crystal ball.

Yeah, alot of meaning behind Maiden, I just love it .. I cant but help wonder that this one has a psychedelic influence, possibly about such Mazatec rituals, like Datura .. or some theme like that. Their lyrics are so deep.
