"Caught In the Middle" as written by and Appice Dio....
Looking inside of yourself
You might see someone you don't know
Maybe it's just what you need
Letting the river in you flow

You can sail away to the sun
And let it burn you while you can
Or walk a long bloody road
Like the hero who never ran

You'll feel it
You'll feel it
You'll feel the rush of it all

Flying away int the clouds
You know you're loosing your control
And finding you way in the dark
Like some poor forgotten soul

You'll feel it
You'll see it
You'll feel the rush of the city lights
You'll feel it
I see it in your eyes, you're

Caught in the middle
Just like the way you've always been
Caught in the middle
Helpless again

Looking inside of yourself
You might see someone you don't know
Maybe it's just what you need
Letting the river I know that's in you flow

You can feel it
You can see it
You know the rush of thunder, yeah
You'll feel it
I see it in your eyes, you're

Caught in the middle
Just like the way you've always been
Caught in the middle
Helpless again
Like the rush of a thunder
That brings you under
There's some kind of spark
You're caught right there in the middle
You're caught in the middle
Caught in the middle again
All night long yeah hmm hmm hmm
You break it off in the middle

    General CommentAgreed. Possibly my favourite off of Holy Diver. Im not certain about the message in the song though. Im not the greatest at interpreting these kind of things

    General CommentClearly it's about heaven and hell, good and evil and being caught between doing good and doing bad and the choice/s you make. As with many of Dio's songs, it is often open to interpretation but I think that is the gist of it! RIP Ronnie James Dio, KING of metal! \m/

    General CommentDio was very clear in this one. Look inside yourself. Unleash your free spirit and free yourself from the zombie that youve been told is your true self

    My InterpretationWhat such an amazing song! The song means whatever you want it does. It can be the way to say that you can succeed in life if you really wanna, that you have to stop lying to yourself and find who you really are and what you really want. Or it can be something really negative like what you feel when you do drugs. I don't know. DIO songs always were kind of difficult to get -like Holy Diver- you don't know if he is criticizing the religion and its hypocrite face or...?- Anyway CITM is onne of my favorites you just cannot stopo listening to it. LONG LIVE KING DIO

    My InterpretationI think it has to do with cheating your woman. At the end it says "you break it off in the middle"... in the middle of what? A relationship I guess... Anyway,as someone before stated, it can be interpreted in many ways. Great song, and fine lyrics. I can listen to this song over and over again, it doesn't get boring.
