"Omega" as written by and Bruce/ramirez Dickinson....
The ashes drift away, smoke of our confusion
We turn our frightened faces to each other, say goodbye
Waited for the sign, waited for the moment
Waited for the miracle to arrive
I guess they lied

Look at your future
Take a look at your burning sky
Look at your future
Look at your burning sky

The others, they have gone
Who wants to live forever
With nothing left to hold onto the past that we once knew?
We believed in heaven, we believed in angels
With arms of purest white
To hold us, catch us when we fall

Look at your future
Take a look at your burning sky
Look at your future
Now look at your burning sky

Now it's Omega-Zero day
The red star shines its last rays
The sun that gave us life yesterday
Is now the sun that takes our lives away

Take a look at your future
Look at your burning sky
Look at your future
Look at your burning sky

Now it's Omega-Zero day
The red star shines its last rays
The sun that gave us life yesterday
Is now the sun that takes our lives away

Now it's Omega-Zero day
The red star shines its last rays
The sun that gave us life yesterday
Is now the sun that takes our lives away

    General CommentTo me, this song means either one of these two things:

    1. Global warming is going to kill the world and people wait for someone to change everything at the last minute like a miracle, but that doesn't happen. The angels with "arms of purest white" represent the ice that was once there. And "The sun that gave us life yesterday is now the sun that takes our lives away" is talking about how everything is beyond control.

    OR

    2. The apocalypse, which could better explain the part with heaven and angels.

    General CommentQuote (from Accident of Birth solo collection sleeve): A loose concept united Tltec 7 Arrival, Star Children, Omega and Arc of Space. "They're all about an apocalyptic future," [Dickinson] revealed. "Omega is about the end of the world and Arc of Space is concerns those who look at aliens almost as a religion; wish fulfilment on a grand scale. I wrote Star Children about the first contact with an alien, but the alien is Death. Take his hand and you die."

    General CommentI took it for face value, personally. The description along with plainly stating "Omega Zero Day" conveyed to me that this is about the inevitable day that the sun finally dies, dragging everything in this solar system along with it.

    General CommentI also thought it was about the end of the sun:
    "Now it's omega zero day
    The red star shines its last rays
    The sun that gave us life yesterday
    Is now the sun that takes our lives away"

    The bit about heaven and angels i think is refering to the false beliefs (We believed in heaven, we believed in angels
    With arms of purest whitehold us, catch us when we fall ). People who believed in heaven, angels salvation, find that its all a lie, because they live to see the appocalypse...which happens to be when the sun burns itself out and not when their god commanded it.

    General Commentdon't worry, Sun is never gonna burn out, it's simply impossible, and if it still burns out - till then we will find other sun, there are plenty of 'em, as for the song's meaning I agree with all of you
