"Born on the Sun" as written by Jimmy Bain, Vinny Appice, Rowan Robertson and Ronnie James Dio....
There's a crack in the rainbow
There's a hole in the sky
You believed in something
Now it's just a lie, yeah

No jokes from the jester
Not a laugh from the clown
And your world is upside down, yeah

You can hide in a circle
It's a way to survive
Be another number
At least you'd be alive

Or you can ride with the gypsy
He can take you to hell
And the answers screaming
In a voice you know so well

You you're made of fire
Never higher
You were made to run

You you're burning higher
You've got the fire
You were born on the sun

So take a walk with a wild one
It's the way that I've found
You can turn it upside down

    General CommentI interpret that song as autobiographical about Ronnie James Dio's past:
    There's a crack in the Rainbow - Dio was in Ritchie Blackmore's Rainbow (which was nothing else than Elf (Dio's previous band) where Blackmore took over the guitarist spot) and after Blackmore threw Dio out there was a crack in the Band, it became shit afterwards
    There's a Hole in the Sky - A song from Black Sabbath (Sabotage, 1975)
    "You believed in something, now it's just a lie" - Dio believed in both band, was kicked out of both of them, at least the Sabbath kick-out was made out of lies (the infamous studio story during Live Evil).
    And it explains how Dio, despite all this didn't hide or ran in a circle of going back to past things but "ran", made step forward, that was his Solo band, creating successful albums (Holy Diver, Last in Line)

    A great song from a very underrated album (Lock up the Wolves, 1990)

    General CommentI just want to add my agreement to the above comment that Lock Up The Wolves is an underrated album: in particular, the song My Eyes is one of my all-time favourite songs (not just of Dio songs, but of ALL songs). I seem to remember that it has no dislikes on YouTube!
