Lyrics:

Cold as steel the darkness waits, its hour will come
A cry of fear for the chosen worshipping the sun
Mother natures black revenge on those who waste her life
War babies in the garden of Eden shall turn our ashes to ice

Sunrise is gone, freezing up the fires
Sunrise is gone, numbing all desires
Sunrise is gone, Sunrise is gone

Around the world the people stop with terror-sticken eyes
A shadow cast upon them all to crush them like a fly
In the icy rain and whiplashed seas there's nowhere left to run
The hammer blows of winter fall like a hurricane

Sunrise is gone, freezing up the fires
Sunrise is gone, numbing all desires

Around the world the nations wait
for some wise words from their leading light
You know it's not only madmen who listen to fools
"Is this the end" the millions cried
clutching their riches as they died
Those who survive must weather the storm

Gone are the days when man looked down
They've taken away his sacred crown
To be so free, it took so long
It's not the journeys end, it's just begun

I've been looking for total eclpise tabs for a while and all the sites i go to have the same damm tabs posted by the same person. WHY? this those not sound like the song. I've been trying and trying to make sense of it but I can't. Did iron maiden release another version of total eclipse?
