"Lunar Lament" as written by Jon Schaffer and Hans Juergen Kuersch....
Take a look at me
So cold and all alone
I drift around in circles
And I can't reach the sun

You saints and sinners
Your peace and war
I drift alone in silence
'Cause I can't reach the sun

It's all I long for
The heat of the sun
It's all I long for
What I'm wishing for is the blessing
of the sun

Just open up and see
Forget what you've been told
I'm existing hopelessly
'Cause I can't reach the sun

Darkness covers me
My soul has yet to long
I'm looking for serenity
'Cause I can't reach the sun

It's all I long for
The heat of the sun
It's all I long for
What I'm wishing for is the blessing
of the sun

Save me from these endless days
Release me here and now
'Cause I can't reach the sun
Save me from these endless days
Release me here and now
'Cause I can't reach the sun

Here I am
Still the same
Round and round
Every day
Fighting hard now
I must push on
Feed the challenge
But even if I miss
I'll land among the stars

Take another look
At yourself what do you see?
You drift alone in circles
And you can't reach the sun
Are you a prisoner
Of an endless war
Or trapped in sadness
You can't reach the sun

It's all I long for
The heat of the sun
It's all I long for
What I'm wishing for is the blessing of the sun
It's all I long for
The heat of the sun
It's all I long for
What I'm wishing for is the blessing of the sun
What I'm wishing for is the blessing of the sun

Save me from these endless days
Release me here and now
'Cause I can't reach the sun
Save me from these endless days
Release me here and now
'Cause I can't reach the sun

    General CommentI do believe that their talking from the perspective of the moon, and how they think it craves the suns rays and heat, and it's always trying to get closer but can't make it..somethin' like that.

    General CommentMissing a part after the 4th part

    Darkness covers me
    My soul has yet to long
    I'm looking for serenity
    'Cause I can't reach the sun

    General CommentFor me it has a deeper meaning :)
    It compares our lives to Moon's journey around the Earth.
    Either we -humans,nor the Moon,aren't able to reach our goals.The goal for Moon is to reach the Sun,and everyone of us,has his own life goals.

    General CommentI always took it to be somewhat religious in meaning. Listening to Blind Guardian it seems like Hansi has atleast some interest in The Bible. The moon would be the narrator, and the sun would be The Son of God, Jesus Christ. He's longing for the serenity of God, but maybe he can't bring himself to fully offer himself up or make such a huge lifestyle change. Atleast this is what I've thought, and it makes the song more emotional for me.
