Name That Tune Meme

I violated the rules a little bit. Sometimes I added more than four lines since that made the lyrics more of a conceptual stanza. I sorta used the same band twice; but, not quite.

Prince or pauper, beggar man or thing
Play the game with ev'ry flow'r you bring
[song title] don't tell no lies
[song title] will make you wise. Tell me if she laughs or cries
Blow away [song title]

She lives in this house over there
Has her world outside it
Scrapples in the earth with her fingers and her mouth
Shes five years old

Try and keep it simple,
Not too far away,
Movin' slow, so simple,
Never felt this way.

Once upon a time
I was on a mind to lay your burden down
And leave you where you stood
You believed I could
Youd seen it done before

War has been declared
We are forced to fight
Take lives of my men
My Kingdom falls this night

They're gathered in circles
the lamps light their faces
The crescent moon rocks in the sky
The poets of drumming
keep heartbeats suspended
The smoke swirls up and then dies

(7) "Sacrificial Bonfire" by XTC, provided by Toast
Fire they cried
So evil must die
And yields are good
So men pull back hoods and smile

They're walking by the night
The moon has frozen blue
Long black coats a shelter for the rain
Their load must get through

(9) "Collideascope" by the Dukes of Stratosphere, provided by Toast
[song title]
Careful, don't look down the wrong end
You will see ships that fall out of the sky
Who put that nail in your eye
You make me want to cry with your...

[song title]
Brings the dawn in
It's just a restless feeling by my side
Early dawning
[song title]
It's just the wasted years so close behind

I'm just grasping at straws here and apparently I'm a failure with lyrics unless the song is etched in my mind.

Is there an Iron Maiden song in there somewhere?


Out of all the bloggers who have done this, I've identified ONE song so far.

#9: "Collideascope" by Dukes of Stratosphear. LOVE that album. Thanks for that one, and for XTC, my bro'.

#7: "Sacrificial Bonfire" by XTC/

#5: I don't know the song, but I'd bet $5 it's by Manowar.

Nope, no Iron Maiden in the lot. Nor is there any Manowar, though you're barking up the right tree for #5.

Spoiler Alert:

#5 is Dethklok.
