"Rising Son" as written by and Dan Maines Richard Timothy Sult....
You look so good while you're riding
On your pterodactyl
Storming castles with abandon
And rainbows by fistfuls
Now lets go dancing madly backwards
While on a sea of air
Everyone I hear is saying
Captain Beyand will be there

When we go carelessly careening quickly
Screaming all the way
Gravity is such a drag
And we will not obey
Carelessly careening quickly
Screaming all the way
Gravity is such a drag
Now we will have our way

Was it I? Or was it shadow?
A trick of light in play
Leaving me to see that I saw
The garden from whence we came
But I'm not saying anything
That hasn't been said before
You may hear it now if you wish to
Put an ear against the floor

Then we go carelessly careening quickly
Screaming all the way
Gravity is such a drag
And we will not obey
Carelessly careening quickly
Screaming all the way
Gravity is such a drag
Now we will have our way

Now we will have it!

On the heels of charming dragons
There is snow falling everywhere
Sorceress, you bring a new Sun
And we will soon be there

Then we go carelessly careening quickly
Screaming all the way
Gravity is such a drag
And we will not obey
Carelessly careening quickly
Screaming all the way
Gravity is such a drag
Now we will have our way

Now we will have it!

    General CommentIt should be Captain Beyond in the first verse, a reference to the 70s band. So is the line "Now lets go dancing madly backwards While on a sea of air", which is actually one of their song names. Aside from that I cant see any connection, let alone a meaning to the song, but it is fun to listen to.

    My OpinionI love this song,
    I feel like this song was written after an acid trip.
