Fly with me on a starlit sky
I'll set you free... Yes, it can be
A dream unchased is a life at waste
Never let them conquer your pride
Our love is warm here
Like the image of a distant sun
This star will always shine
And never, ever fade away

Fly on... Silverwing
Fly with me... Stay free... Silverwing

Seeking truths in spirit skies
Which one of you will guide me tonight?
The milky way tastes sour,
Has heaven lost its power?
So let us set sail on this sea of dreams
The moon gets lost in the morning sun
Just let the spinning wheel spin
And let your life begin

    General CommentSilverwing is a giant white dragon with silver wings (hence the name!) that burninates all the cottages and melts faces with his awesome solos. The song is about Mike's love for Silverwing and how awesome his riffs and solos are. Silverwing is actually the being who writes most Arch Enemy's stuff - he comes down once every 3 years to write a good hundred or so riffs for Chris and Mike to use on their new albums. Most of the time Chris and Mike have to throw away about 50 or 60 of the riffs because they are just too good and would cause mass hospitalisation to metallers across the nation.

    The latest Arch Enemy album (Rise of the Tyrant) is the result of Silverwing being more involved in the writing process - which is why half of my face is literally molten sagging flesh.

    Chris actually uses the power of Silverwing when he plays his solos live as no mortal apart from Paul Gilbert (who's actually posessed by Satan) can play them.

    This is all based on a true story.

    General CommentMe and my friend are playing this song for my schools talent show (singerless because my school is to mainstream and caught up with laydy Ga ga to put up with this kind of music) I love this song especially on The Root of All Evil Chris and Mike Amott are my favorite guitarists as of now. I got that this song is about love but i wonder why Mike named the being Silverwing.
