"Heavy Metal : The Black and Silver" as written by and Pearlman/bouchard/bloom....
It's in the whirlpool, where matter vanishes
Degenerate star, arm of Orion
An iron sun, the forbidden circle
It's a mountain, it's a black horizon

Heavy metal, black and silver
Falling matter of the sun
Folds itself into a place
Where there was never, never one

By starlight, the heaviest horizon
Magnetic mirrors, scattered body slow
A chaos of metal, river of fire
The countless blue and glows

Heavy metal, black and silver
Falling matter of the sun
Folds itself into a place
Where there was never, never one

Falling matter, from the cross
Freedom that was never lost
Beyond the end, we'll be coming
Beyond time, space and control

Direction, sun light
Creation, done right
Foundation, before the Einstein grips the night
Spans a river, star light
Become tired, damn right
World, I love darkness
Without end, and I love light

Heavy metal, black and silver
Falling matter of the sun
Folds itself into a place
Where there was never, never, never, never one

    General CommentThe lyrics to the song, "Heavy Metal: The Black And Silver" were inspired by the 1977 book, *The Iron Sun: Crossing The Universe Through Black Holes*, by Adrian Berry. Several of the lyrics to the first verse are derived from chapter titles of the book.

    The chapters to Part One (Through the Black Hole) are titled as follows:

    Where Matter Vanishes
    The Spinning Gateway
    Into the Whirlpool
    The Forbidden Circle

    Part Two (The Iron Sun) begins with (1) The Arm of Orion.

    According to "Morning Final #14", the songs "Vengeance (The Pact)" and "Don't Turn Your Back" were written following the script of the movie "Heavy Metal", with "Heavy Metal: The Black And Silver" also being inspired by the movie, but not directly from the script.
