"Sky" as written by and Sun Ra....
I painted a picture, of a day gone past
An ancient scripture, a house of glass
People looking through the window
Never knowing what they'd find
When they couldn't see me
I locked the door, left them behind
The sky will tell me... I'm not the only one
And the sky will tell me... I must believe the sun

I shut my eyes, to not go blind
Things I can't see, I see in my mind
Oh now the passing clouds of rain
Have surely passed us by
Poor is the man
That believes his own lie

And the sky will tell me
I'm not the only one
And the sky will tell me
I must believe the sun
And the sky will tell me
Long may you run
And the sky will tell me
I must believe the sun
(Yeah)

If I was wrong judge... me by name
I simplify... one and the same

And the sky will tell me
(and the sky will tell me)
I'm not the only one
(I'm not the only one)
And the sky will tell me
(and the sky will tell me)
I must believe the sun
(I must believe the sun)
And the sky will tell me
(and the sky will tell me)
Long may you run
(long may you run)
And the sky will tell me
(and the sky will tell me)
I must believe... (I must believe) the sun
(Yeah)

    General CommentThis has to be the best song on the album, by far. A very powerful song about a person's enlightenment in comparison to others around him or her that although the world seems shitty... there is hope in the literal and metaphorical sky. The part where he states: "long may you run" is so true in how everyone has to deal with their problems, yet there is hope and light at the end of the tunnel.

    General CommentRevalation seems to have the point of the song down pretty good. The instrumentals on this song are pretty kick-ass to. The mix of distortion and acoustics really catches you. Really powerful vocals. and the line 'Poor is the man/that believes his own lies' is the best. Best song on the album.

    General CommentThis song's main riff is a total rip off of Tool's Eulogy. They just play it on a seven string. It follows the exact same progression and rhythm. Listen to Eulogy, you'll hear it. Sorry, but it pisses me off when bands rip other bands off. This is total crap

    Song MeaningOnce again, following my belief that the best songs are the ones that you can interpret in your own way, I toss a couple of pennies in the pot.

    When I first heard RA's Only One album, I absolutely loved the different style they brought to the table. Then I heard Sky. A that time, I was really struggling with my own personal identity, and where I should fall into the fold of society. The simple message that I took was that "I can't believe in things that are unseen, unlikely, or unproven; so I'll believe in something that I know is there. I'll look to the sun."

    I KNOW THE SUN IS THERE FOR ME. I can see it and I can feel it. Everyone else can see it's there also. There's no denying it, and no need to fight over it. It brings life and it keeps me warm. Why should I ever have to look elsewhere?

    General CommentI agree with Elder. Right now I'm still discovering who I am, and I feel torn, moving from highschool to college, feeling like nothing is the same. This song gives me comfort. It tells me that everything will be ok, I'm not "the only one". All I have to do is "believe the sun."
