"Fly To The Rainbow" as written by Ulrich Roth and Michael Schenker....
Life is empty, can't remember anytime before,
On a plain lit cold December, see it evermore,
Gliding through this life, and another is a child,
And we're doing games, and losing things,
Always playing gigs.

Somewhere in the sky, where the moon the stars shine bright,
Where the sun is shining, in the night.
I am in disgrace, yet I see a smiling face,
And I hope you let me, share your place.
I don't live today.

Rain in the sky , make the world fly,
Into time, beg me your time.
Sun in the sky, make the world fly,
Into time, beg me your time.

Rain in the sky , make the world fly,
Into time, beg me your time.
Sun in the sky, make the world fly,
Into time, beg me your time.

Rain in the sky , make the world fly,
Into time, beg me your time.
Sun in the sky, make the world fly,
Into time, beg me your time.

Well, I lived in magic solitude
Of cloudy-looking mountains
And a lake made out of crystal raindrops
Roaming through Space ten thousand years ago
I've seen the giant city of Atlantis
Sinking to eternal waves of darkness

Somewhere in the blue distance
Are those long-forgotten trees of yore
A broken violin floating alone in December
Darkness everywhere and nothing more.

Symbol, strange Symbol, Melancholy
Painting torrid colors to a sky of green
Candle breathing one night only
Far away, in chillness, bleak, unseen

Drifting galley, ghostlike shadow,
Sails rigged to catch and kill the Time
Echoes wandering down an endless meadow
To call the Thing
Sublime!

    General Commentthis song is absolutely incredible! i don't really know what it means though. i found some lyrics for it here:

    lyricsdomain.com/19/scorpions/…

    but they made absolutely no sense whatsoever. these ones are better. the guitar part from the middle to the end, after the third repetition of the "back beyond time" bit sounds improvised, but it's not. it's really amazing, i could listen to it all day! and the poem, even though it seems to make no sense, is beautiful, and the outro has some of the most powerful guitar i've ever heard. Uli Jon Roth, the guitarist, lives just down the road from me ;)

    General CommentThe best version of this song is the live one in tokyo tapes. It seems like it's beyond the word music.

    General CommentThis is credited to M Schenker and Uli Roth - Uli picked up a song that Michael had been working on before leaving the band, and added the ending. It's pretty clear when listening to it where the split happens. Absolutely stunning track.
