Dio - The Last In Line


Dio - The Last In Line - Meaning of the song


"The Last in Line" is the third single released by heavy metal band Dio, appearing on their platinum-certified LP of the same name. It was Dio's only song to hit the Top 10 of Billboard's Album Rock Tracks.

Unlike the band's first two singles, this song was not released as a single in the UK, but rather in the Netherlands and Spain. There is also an alternate version in the Netherlands sold only at the Pinkpop '84 festival on June 11, 1984.

The sleeve of this release was the same as the band's previous single, "Rainbow in the Dark", with the Pinkpop logo in the corner.

The song was covered by Tenacious D for the 2014 This Is Your Life tribute album. Their cover won the Grammy Award for Best Metal Performance.


The Last In Line - Lyrics


We're the ship without a storm The cold without the warm Light inside the darkness That it needs, yeah We're a laugh without tear The hope without the fear We are coming, home We're off to the witch We may never, never, never, come home But the magic that we'll feel Is worth the lifetime We're all born upon the cross We're the throw before the toss You can release yourself But the only way is down We don't come alone We are fire, we are stone We're the hand that writes Then quickly moves away We'll know for the first time If we're evil or divine We're the last in line, yeah We're the last in line Two eyes from the east It's the angel or the beast And the answer lies Between the good and bad We search for the truth We could die upon the tooth But the thrill of just the chase Is worth the pain We'll know for the first time If we're evil or divine We're the last in line, yeah We're the last in line, oh Yeah, we're off to the witch We may never, never, never come home But the magic that we'll feel Is worth a lifetime We're all born upon the cross You know we're the throw before the toss You can release yourself But the only way to go is down We'll know for the first time If we're evil or divine We're the last in line, oh We're the last in line See how we shine We're the last in We're the last in We're the last in We're the last in We're the last in We're the first in line, oh We're a ship without a storm We're the cold inside the warm We're the laugh without tear We're the smile without the mirror We're the last in line We're the last in line We're the last in line See how we shine We're the last in line
