Still One of My Favorite Metal Riffs Ever



RIP Ronnie James Dio. This song seems to be about depression:

When there's lightning, it always bring me down
Cause it's free and I see that it's me
Who's lost and never found
I cry for magic, I feel it dancing in the light
But it was cold, I lost my hold
To the shadows of the night

There's no sign of the morning coming
You've been left on your own
Like a rainbow in the dark

Do your demons, do they ever let you go?
When you've tried, do they hide deep inside
Is it someone that you know
You're a picture, just an image caught in time
We're a lie, you and I
We're words without a rhyme

There's no sign of the morning coming
You've been left on your own
Like a rainbow in the dark

When there's lightning, it always brings me down
Cause it's free and I see that it's me
Who's lost and never found
Feel the magic, feel it dancing in the air
But it's fear, and you'll hear
It calling you. Beware!

There's no sign of the morning coming
There's no sight of the day
You've been left on your own
Like a rainbow in the dark

Yeah this was really sad - Dio was one of the few 70's guys to bring heavy into the world of hairspray 80's metal. His death got me to revisit the Mob Rules LP this morning, which was a really good one even if Bill Ward was awol at that point.
