about

Written around 2012, one of my only power ballads.
There is a line in here that is specifically meant as tribute to Ronnie James Dio. The line that states "Last chance I'll disappear, I'll go away, I'll leave here." Is referencing Dio's "Invisible". Scott Pelchat sang the original version for the demo.
The song is about a person in their moment of death, coming to accept it and even come to want it in their final moment.

lyrics

(Verse 1)
The sun goes down today
I wish for another tomorrow
All the colors, they fade away
As winter takes hold of my world

For now I know I was too slow
Lost in time my future's near
Tried so hard to quell my fear

Sunlight caress my face
Frozen in another sleep
Go away, I'm in too deep

(Chorus)
So I reside
In this place, in the neon sky
But tonight
I will find, my dreams take flight

(Verse 2)
If I try to make it through the night
Lost souls will not come here
Spinning fast, but I'm so near

Find out what life's all about
Last chance I'll disappear
I'll go away, I'll leave here

(Chorus)

(Bridge)
I am lost in my own mind
A prison I cannot hide
My body feels so refined
And there's a fear I can't define

Why should I
Rise to a world of desperate sin
If in my mind I know I'll win

In my dreams I can feel you
Try, to separate your body and mind
But your soul is lost like mine

(Chorus)
So I reside
In this place, in the neon sky
But tonight
I will find, my dreams take flight

Now I can see
What I was meant to be
So tonight you may find
Your world is less than mine
