There is a song called “Iron Out The Maiden” by Shahmen, here are the lyrics.
I don’t understand this sentence:
One butterfly pull the iron out the maiden
Why “pull”, not pulls or pulled?
And what does it mean to pull the iron out the maiden?

i think is more symnolism rather than literal stuff; like a butterfly is something extrimly frail; the iron isn't something evil on itself, but it probably can be seen as something bad, iron is static, it's not alive, and it often hurts anything made of flash; and than the maiden can mean different things, ofc there is the thing with the iron maiden, which is an object on itself, and in this case the maiden could be inteded as a woman, to keep a refernce to the iron maiden but still having it be a thing on his own about women in genral; still in this case i see it more as something personal like his soul; so the meaning would be like tryng to get the iron out of his soul, or cleaning his soul even tho to keep it clean it's very hard cause the willpower is frail like the butterfly. but that's just me anyway. what's for sure it's that it started by playng with the word "iron maiden" and than probably kept going giving it another meaning; or at least not talking specifically about the iron maiden itself in a literal sense
