"Fever Dreams" as written by Eric Patrick Clapton and Jim Gordon....
Lately when my demons drag the night across my eyes
I just can't seem to fight it anymore
Yield unto temptation and be ruler of the world
But it seems that I have heard that song before

And the voices begin to sing, come home

I have seen some evil as I've walked upon the earth
But this is way beyond what eyes can see
Wicked is as wicked does and if I lose control
Is this the way that hell is gonna be

Have I fallen too far to rise
Been burning too long in the fire
Then it all falls down, tearing the night away

It must be, fever dreams
Fever dreams
Fever dreams

Now before my demons roll the night across my eyes
I tremble as I wait perhaps to sin
Yield unto temptation and be ruler of the world
And all I do is let the beast come in

Have I fallen too far to rise
I've been standing too long in the fire
Let it all fall down
Tearing the night away

It must be, fever dreams
From the outside, fever dreams
Oh, fever dreams
Fever dreams
Ooh-ooh

Fever dreams
Fever dreams
Fever dreams
Fever dreams
Fever dreams
Fever dreams

    General CommentThe meaning to this song and the rest of the tunes from Magica is apparent if you listen to the story track at the end of the album, or read it in the liner notes or online somewhere.

    General CommentSimple in most of his songs Dio represents a warrior in this song he is warrior fighting demons.He was slain by the demon army and tormented.I think that he was converted too.So he asks himself can he return to light.
