"Fly To The Angels" as written by and Dana Strum Mark Slaughter....
Pictures of you--
oh, they're still on my mind--
you had the smile--
that could light up the world--
now it rains--
it seems the sun never shines--
and I drive--
this lonely lonely road--
oooo I got this feelin'--
girl I gotta let you go--

'cause now you've got to fly--
(fly high)--
fly to the angels--
heaven awaits your heart--
and flowers bloom in your name--
you've got to fly--
(fly high)--
fly to the angels--
all the stars in the night--
shine in your name--

though it hurts me--
way deep inside--
when I took a look--
and found that you're not there--
I tried to convince myself--
that the PAIN--
the PAIN is still not gone--
but still I drive--
this lonely lonely road--
oo I got this feeling--
girl I gotta let you go--

(repeat chorus)

(musical interlude)--
oo yeah--
(musical interlude)--
and still I drive --
this lonely lonely road--
oo I got this feelin' --
I can't let you go--
BUT I KNOW that you've got to fly--
(fly high)--
fly to the angels--
heaven awaits your heart--
and flowers bloom in your name--
you've gotta fly--
(fly high)--
fly to the angels--
all the stars in the sky--
oo--oo--oo (repeat)--
I'm gonna miss you--
gonna miss you girl--

    General CommentThis song, strangely, IMO, is an example of why hair rock, and glam etc finally ended. It finished the genre, it really could get no better for the sonic architecture which was building to epics like this song. The bands of LA, basically finished the evolution of what a great balled was about for that age. Steelheart, Kix, Skid Row, Poison, Motley and others may have lamented the rise of grunge, engulfing hair rock as a super market for music, but strangely again, the perfection of the craft is what did it, it was done, and the songs themselves could be a categor unto themselves, but the power ballad symetry, opened the door to the strange abstract darkness of Nirvana, Soundgarden and others, the rock dream turned into a secret nightmare, which grunge in many ways is, insane lyrics, punk, neo blues and psychedilc in a heroine soup. Somehow the prettiness of glam, invited the ugliness of grunge, so called. It really was a change in mood as well, music left the bright lights, the sexual overkill, and went up north to rot in the mind fully. The gloom, fog and strange depression followed, from pretension to symbolic suicide, from understandable, to abstractions not only in lyric, but how a word could be painted sepia, with several meanings as a song meandered. Grunge, in many examples is surreal insanity, of those who recognized what glam was not: miserable.

    That's why both genres, are perfectly related, and still great artistic periods in the evolution of rock n roll. From glam to.... black.

    General CommentI know it's about a girl that Mark Slaughter was good friends with. It's soooo sad. It makes the hairs stand up on the back of my neck. And it makes me think of my friends who have passed away.

    General CommentThis song is clearly about loosing someone.
    And whenever I hear this song I think about my friend Drew and my dog Sassy.
    It's such a beautiful song lyrically.

    I actually remember listening to this song the night I found out Drew passed away.

    General CommentLast night, I lost my grandma after a couple of years of ups and downs in her health...and I just happened to have my iPOD on random and this song came on...and it has helped me to say goodbye to her. Its funny that a song would be so cathartic, but it really has been. You are in heaven now, and no longer suffering grandma...you may be gone, but you will never be forgotten!!
