"Evening Star" as written by and Herman/theart Li....
We will sail on, forever on
To the land of the evening star

Into the endless we ride
Unveil the darkness behind
Abandoned glory hidden, castaway we ride
Now will the sky surrender?
Forever through the never
A silent whisper echoes through my restless heart tonight

And I will see the glory rise
We'll be one tonight
Don't you shut your eyes in silence
Tonight gather near, come and live your fear

In a land of desire, your heart filled with fire
You live for the right to be free
We will sail on, forever on
To the land of the evening star
In a land of desire, your heart filled with fire
The land of the evening star

Now and forever after
Asylums filled with laughter
Suspicion haunts my dreams
An echo through my mind

This starlit gaze reminds me
Are you so blind you can't see?
The winds of change my friend
Will blow for you in the dead of night

And I will see glory rise
We'll be one tonight
Don't you shut your eyes in silence
Tonight gather near, come and live your fear

In a land of desire, your heart filled with fire
You live for the right to be free
We will sail on, forever on
To the land of the evening star
In a land of desire, your heart filled with fire
The land of the evening star

In a land of desire, your heart filled with fire
You live for the right to be free
We will sail on, forever on
To the land of the evening star
In a land of desire, your heart filled with fire
The land of the evening star

In a land of desire, your heart filled with fire
The land of the evening star

    General CommentI really cant pick a favorite song from DF, but DF are definately my favorite band.

    I think the meaning behind this is song is about grasping the things you want in life, and pushing aside all the things you're afraid of in life in order to get it.

    General CommentThe song that originally got me into DF. Beautiful opening, and then some of their fastest guitar work of all time. Amazing acapella chorus, too. Can't wait for the remastered version...

    General CommentThe song is based on the country of Greenland, thus explaining the title "Evening Star".
