"Distant Skies" as written by and Timo Tapio Tolkki....
Went into the plane was scared like hell
Tried to relax for awhile
But when we took off I feared we would fall
Waving goodbye to this life

I´m flying through winds tonight
No sign of the dawn or light

Silhouettes in the sky
Wings are carrying me through the night
Silhouettes in the sky
Destination unknown
Distant Skies

Then after awhile I tried to sleep
But watched two movies instead
The fear struck again
How I hate this plane
Hope this would come to an end

    General CommentThis is a song about aviophobia (the fear of flying) which Timo Tolkki suffered from sometime in his past.

    General CommentI haven't figured out how it relates to the lyrics of the song yet, but at the gig at Wacken some days ago (which f'n kicked ass! :D ), Timo said that this song is about lying.

    I'm well aware that Jutah's intepretation makes much more sense, though. oO
