Dio - Lord Of The Last Day Lyrics




I love the night
So many shadows
Unholy light
Putting out the spark
Leave 'em in the dark - forever
Ooh

I can wait for you
Your end is my life
All lies are true
Secrets of the heart
And you can take them all - To heaven

I don't feel pain or sorrow
The child's a man tomorrow
Crossing the line - Then he's mine

Don't care which god you follow
Whose promises you swallow
Time and again
We must meet at the end
Aaah

It's all right
When the music is over
Come on and dance
For the lord of the last day

I love the night
So many shadows
Unholy light
Secrets of the heart
Leave 'em in the dark
Forever

  10. phenom_ 1986

    Man of the Silver Mountain was inspired by an event so great and historical that took place many ages ago. Ronnie James Dio, in His medieval warrior outfit with His great summoning sword in hand and adorned in mithral chainmale armor from breast to grieves, made His voyage along the slopes of the mountain in search of an elusive dragon circling the winding mountain tops. A very dark surge of storm clouds loomed over these mountain tops, giving the mighty beast no avail to our Warrior, for our Warrior could see-eth not with His eyes. The ominous flickers of bright lightning gave way the hiding of the beast among the clouds, giving our Warrior sharper keen vision to hone his great sword. The battle had been ensuing for quite some time, and alas, the battle journeyed its way here. Our Warrior Dio, with fire in the eyes and an iron determination to hunt down this fire breathing beast, made rest assured to bring down this dragon once and for all.
    Finally, a fiery inferno of raging flame rained down in a straight line across the winding slopes, for perhaps the beast was trying to bring death to our Warrior, who quickly dove behind huge rock of solid stone for cover. As the dragon circled back around, it flew in wings fully open-sailed and with a mighty perch of landing, shook the grounds beneath our Warriors feet, bringing Him out of hiding from the huge rock. Our Warrior lifted His eyes to that of the dragons, and as a bolt of lightning flashed ominously in the sky behind the beast, it let out its wings lifting its nose above purging from its nostrils 2 great balls of fire as it cast itself in great display of shadowy silhouette, before retraining its own glowing eyes back down that of the cold hard eyes of our Warrior.
    Raising His sword, the 2 engaged fiercely, trading blows and quick maneuvering each other at matched skill levels, and still, Dio did not back down. Dio knows dragons are weak in the underbelly, where more blades have pierced and struck death upon previous savage beasts, so He made several attempts to reach this area while still battling back the claws of the dragon...and avoiding most the huge jaws of this monstrous Serpent that tried endlessly to kill Him.
    Our Warrior made keen attempts to slash the heels of this beast, hoping to sever the tendons to bring down the dragons soft underside closer to the ground, allowing Our Warrior to plunge his great sword deep into the heart of this monstrous beast.
    Unable to trample nor grasp the clutches of Dio, the dragon turned and prepared for an escape.
    " NAY AWAY WITH YOU, BEAST...!!!" Roared Dio.
    Unwavering, He readied His sword and like a great spear, delivered a mighty heave soaring it through the air and piercing the Serpent at the base of its neck, bringing the beast down to a near paralyzing end. Our Warrior fiercely climbed atop this still kicking beast, pulled His sword from the scaly flesh and raised it high to the sky. Thunder raged as lightning summoned from the dark clouds, striking Our Warriors great sword with an ominous and mighty charge.
    With a tremendous Warrior Cry, Dio gripped His sword, blade pointed down, delivered a mighty and powerful death blow at the base of skull of this huge, savage beast ... ending what seemed to be and endless battle between the two competitors.

    Tales turned to Legend, and the event of the great battle and the bright, vivid charge of the lightning could be seen for many miles, and our Warrior Dio later became known . . . as the Man of the Silver Mountain.

  28. Broder Hjalmar

    He truly left a legacy of music.

  29. Broder Hjalmar

    One of my favorites by Dio.

  30. Flash Magnums

    I love this album. I'm a sucker for story driven music, and Ronnie James is a master at it. It's a real shame the story of Magica will never reach a conclusion.

    Preston Downey

    it kinda did. It was neatly wrapped up, yet dio planned a sequel. the story of magica itself was complete.

  31. Mrchubbers2015 Nm

    dio does rule!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  32. inonsin

    rest in peace brother

  33. Roshan Gupta

    You died 6 years ago today, and we miss you Dio.

    Darren Gannon

    its hard , but he wouldn't want us to be sad ! he would want us to enjoy what he has done ; even though it's over. it will really never be over

    Jiggly Bandito

    +Darren Gannon I think he would be like....you guys don't even personally know me....I know when I died. Just listen to the music.

    Roshan Gupta

    +Joshua Blanchard Nope. Rock 'n' roll isn't like that, and especially not Dio. That would be some vain pop star who is all washed up. Not Ronnie. He, like most rock stars, know that he'd be nothing without his fans to recognize his raw talent. You'd have to be a real S.O.B. not to love your fans, and Dio was the exact opposite. He knows we loved him, and not just his music, in return, and so he wouldn't want us to be melancholy about his death, and instead remember all of the great memories and anthems he gave us.

  34. krista barr

    who is the person that doesnt like RONNIE JAMES DIO THE KING OF ALL METAL NOW AND FOREVER.

  35. Mark Villalpando sr.

    thanks for the likes mates

  38. Paganguy1

    His Majesty, Ronnie James DIO, would,, from this song, agree with George R.R. Martin's statement, "There is only one God, and His name is Death. And, we have only one thing to SAY to God: Not today..." This song was written many years before Martin's work, I believe that Martin stole it from this song. That's just me...

  39. مسلم مسلم

    Allah (exalted be his name) is the lord and the owner of the last day, and in my religion (Islam) it is forbidden to mention him in way less inappropriate way than what the have wrongly did, so how about this?
    Such dirteness is forbidden in Islam.
    And it is more forbidden to publish forbidden (haram)
    نسال الله العفو والعافية والتوبة والمغفرة والرضا.
    اللهم اني اسألك من خير ما تعلم واعوذ بك من شر ما تعلم واستغفرك لما تعلم انك أنت علام الغيوب.

    The Mirage

    @مسلم مسلم Gå iväg din fasa.

    Jakob Hallberg

    @مسلم مسلم Please just go away, pretty much all of us here are not interested in your religious qualms with our music genre. Nobody is interested, please leave.

    alex olsen

    Allah forbids questions and you are not free. You do what Allah says. you are not you. you are Allah.

    Dylan Bower

    The Lord of the Last Day is not Allah. It is not the Christian God. It is not Amun-Ra, Zeus, Jupiter, Shiva, or even Odin. The Lord of the Last Day is meant to be Death. Death does not care to whom you pray, or whether or not you have done good with your life. It is, in all honesty, the only constant that binds us all, as in the end, it comes for us all. That is the point of the song, and is the message Our Lord Dio gave to us.

    Brother Judas

    @Dylan Bower in the context of the story, Lord of the last Day is the evil guy who conquered their planet.

    As a stand-alone, yes, its an obvious allegory to death

  40. Michael Stephen

    One of the best Dio tracks - awesome vocal delivery and timing. He is sadly missed.
