"Evening Star" as written by and Glenn Raymond/halford Tipton....
I traveled to a distant shore
I felt I had to go
An inner voice had called me there
But why I did not know
I saw the evening star rise up
Shining out to sea
And now I understand at last what it means
What it all means

Evening star I can see the light
Evening star guiding me so bright

I used to tempt fate
I couldn't see straight
I faltered through my younger days
Never knowing where I was going
Then something helped me penetrate the haze

Evening star I can see the light
Evening star guiding me so bright

Now I am stronger
The haze no longer
Ruins my future destiny
Such inspirations and new sensations
Pull up these string ties chasing me

Evening star I can see the light
Evening star guiding me so bright

I'm home once more, much better for
The things that I have found
Much wiser now, so simple how
Each time I turn around
I see the evening star rise up
Shining out on me
And now I understand at last what it means
What it all means

Evening star I can see the light
Evening star guiding me so bright

    General CommentWell as hellfire pointed out, the obvious interpretation is with evening star being Jesus. In Revelation 22:16 he calls himself the "morning star" or Venus, which is just as commonly known as the Evening Star. Perhaps there is a better explanation, but I cannot see it.

    General CommentI think it's not about the realization of God, but rather that everything's gonna be fine. It ain't over ' til you die.
    I love this song, it has always been one of my favourite Priest songs.

    General CommentIt is about the Three Magi being guided by the Evening Star to baby Jesus. Why they did this song I have no idea.
