Heaven and Hell Lyrics
anonymous Feb 24th, 2:35pm report
I don't know for sure if it is done knowingly or if the musicians are mearly being used as agents. But the reference to the dancer I have come to believe represents, as it has many times in rock and roll, not a dancer but a dan sir. Yes, shake your heads but the dancer is the lost tribe of dan. The same tribe whose place in heaven was given away! The same tribe also known as the children of the sea. The same tribe from which the anti Christ is suppose to emerge. Love can be seen as the answer but nobody bleeds for the dancer. Still have your doubts? All I can say be is you may be a lover but you ain't no dancer!

The song is about how in life people say and behave like they will treat you well and give you what you want if you give them what they want. Once they are made royalty and given power over what they want, they take your power and your freedom and make it theirs. The truth behind the song is that if you give anyone authority over yourself, you have doomed yourself. You are your own master, and if you make someone else your king or queen, they'll blind your eyes and steal your dreams. This song is about life.
