"Breaking into Heaven" as written by and Ronnie James Dio Terrence Butler....
Someone said there's a lost horizon
We must find a way to the throne
Take his gold and the bed he lies on
The mercy from house made of stone

Before the fall we were only dancers
Angels gliding over the floor
Time stood still
And we were sure of the answers
We waited but some wanted more

High above the world we had it all
So no one seemed to care when evil came to call and
Soon we knew temptation and we sinned
Then he closed the door, we can't come back again

Before today it has a dark tomorrow
Chained and cursed to wander with men
But we've been told that it's time and we must go
Don't hope less, we maybe we can

Now we're back again, we want it all
And no one seems to know that evil's come to call and
We will read temptation and you sin
Then we'll slam the door
You can't come back again

Breaking into heaven
Changing the rules
Breaking into heaven
Just a world for the fools
Oh breaking into heaven
Get ready for war
Breaking into heaven
We only want more and more and more and more

Far beneath the world we miss the sun
Why did we believe and change on everyone so
Now we're here to take away your life
So you can go forever where the next day's still tonight

Breaking into heaven
Changing the rules
Breaking into heaven
Just a world full of fools
Oh breaking into heaven
Get ready for war
Breaking into heaven
We only want more and more and more and more

We're ready for war
We're just outside your door
(Breaking into heaven)
We've just found the keys and we're
Breaking into heaven

    General CommentThis is the War between God and Lucifer, it is word by word what the Bible says, you need to know it in order to understand it.

    My InterpretationI don't think this song is about Lucifer and God- but about the devils rebelling against Lucifer because they are pissed they were tempted to turn away from God and all got kicked out of heaven. They want to return to Heaven, but on their own terms. They want it all- heaven, hell, and the earth between.

    General CommentIt is?? I think that the Bible tells about the angels rebellion, and Lucifer and his demons being cast out of heaven (High above the world we had it all, so no one seemed to care when evil came to call and soon we knew temptation and we sinned, then he closed the door, we can't come back again), but this is the "sequel" - the demons are coming back to invade heaven :PP

    "Now we're back again we want it all, and no one seems to know that evil's come to call and we will bring temptation and you'll sin, then we'll slam the door, you can't come back again" (btw, I like how the first bridge says "then he closed the door", and then the second "then we'll SLAM the door, more evil :P)

    Furthermore, the chorus is kinda obvious under this point of view... and in one of the press releases of the album the song was described like that... so this is not about the demons being cast out of heaven, but it's about the demons coming back to kick the angels' asses!! (no offense intended).

    General CommentWell, considering the basics, like the fact that sabbath isn't known for it's canonically christian messages, and the fact that the bible (canonical or apocryphal) doesn't so much as reference the fall, I'd have to say that TimeWeaver's right, and stephan76 is wrong.

    Well, that's not entirely true. There's a section of Isaiah that references lucifer, but the next time it uses the name lucifer it's as a name of christ.

    So in conclusion, this has very little to do with biblical prophecy, and alot more to do with black sabbath liking the whole 'Fallen/rebellious angel' thing.

    My InterpretationWell, the part where Dio says "Changing the rules" makes me think it might have to do with the religious people who put words in God's mouth. Things that aren't even in the Bible, but are said to be against his rules. Technically they're "changing the rules."
