"The Sails of Charon" as written by and Uli John Roth....
Dark night, there is no light
In the realm of the black magic man
Soul's flight into the cold blight
Of the destroyer's magic land

Poor man, whose spirits are stronger
They're the ones who will reign
You're struggles are in vain

Blind man, you're suckin' your own blood
Soon black magic's dying
You'd better start crying

Blind man, you're suckin' your own blood
Soon black magic's dying
You'd better start crying

Throw out your evil desire
The dark king's kingdom is
Made out of mire

Throw out your evil desire
The dark king's kingdom is
Made out of mire

Keep on for the kingdom of light
There is no darkness, there is no night

    General CommentYou gotta be fucking kidding me! This is probably Scorpions best song, yet no one has commented on it. But Rock You Like A Hurricane gets more comments? What the fuck? Anyways, the song is about the greek mythological character Charon, who takes you across the river of Styx.

    General CommentI just wanted to add a comment in support of this song and in agreeance with the above. Uli J Roth plays a mean guitar and is far better than R.Y.L.A.H. as if that song needs interpreting.
