"Between Heaven and Hell" as written by and Zakk Wylde....
Dying to live
Living to die
Ain't no hellos here
Nothing but goodbye
It's like singing a song that cannot be sung
It's like having to end child,
What's yet to love begun

[Chorus]
Hey, hey, hey now
Where I am at times I just can't tell
Hey, hey, hey, now
I'm lost somewhere between heaven and hell

All that you know and all that you knew
In the end child,
Tell me what's it all mean to you?
Don't forget just who and where you are
You can spread your wings son
But don't you spread yourself too far

Hey, hey, hey now
Where I am at times I just can't tell
Hey, hey, hey, now
I'm lost somewhere between heaven and hell

    General CommentYou know ... as I was typing this out, I attempted to make some sense of the lyrics. Yes, they're poetically striking ... but without his guitar solo ... shit, without his guitar playing, period, this song would be just another poor white boy attempting to sing the blues. It's strikes you in a completely different way to listen to it rather than read it -- independently, the lyrics are nothing ... but pair them with the music, and it's heart-achingly beautiful.

    General CommentLol, you're crazy. This song is poetry at its finest. Ponder Stairway to Heaven, why don't you? Gonna tell me that ain't genius, even though it makes no sense? Hah. This song is genius. Love the solo, as well.

    General CommentI agree with Sandman-X. Although the guitar playing IS great, as usual for any song in which Zakk Wylde is playing the guitar.

    General CommentI'd say it's just a song about life and its confusion and uncertainty. Dying to live/living to die, singing a song that can't be sung, having to end what hasn't yet begun.... all ironic scenarios. Life isn't straight forward and sometimes you're just stuck "somewhere between heaven and hell".
