Revenge Recommends: "Innocent Exile" by Iron Maiden


A very young Iron Maiden with Paul Di'Anno on vocals, looking like a lost lounge singer, performing Innocent Exile from 1981's Killers album. Despite a powerful vocal performance from Di'Anno, the lyrics seem cursory and incomplete, especially compared to the great overblown epics of later years. The song mainly serves as a platform for the musicians to wig out within the context of some great ensemble playing.

Lyrics:

My life is so empty, nothing to live for
My mind is all confusion, 'cos I defied the law
When you weren't there to help me, I lost my mind and ran
I never had no trouble before this all began

My life is so empty, nothing to live for
My mind is all confusion, 'cos I defied the law
When you weren't there to help me, I lost my mind and ran
I never had no trouble before this all began

I'm running away, no where to go
I'm lost and tired and I just don't know. Yeah...
They say I killed a woman, they know it isn't true
They're just trying to frame me, and all because of you. Yeah...

Lord, I'm running!
