Arrow To The Sun / Album Fallen / February 2016
Lyrics by Ed Millican

The story: A young man in a small coal miners´ town becomes fascinated in building Rockets, and this takes him to new heights.
V1:
Cast my wonder onto the Heavens
Cold October, 1957
Is it just a trick of the eye
Or pure science floating in the sky?

Pre-Chorus:
A fire was born in me that night
One that would rage till the day I would die

1st Chorus:
Straight like an arrow shot out to the Sun
Carrying all my ambitions
Preserving my sight and saving my lungs
Blasting me out of this coal miners´ town

V2:
Thirsting for knowledge
but always unquenched
Never dreamed college
was waiting in the distance

Pre-Chorus
Just poor boys, undaunted
on the shoulders of Giants
A thousand failed launches
But we remain Defiant

2nd Chorus:
Straight like an arrow shot out to the Sun
Carrying all my ambitions
Preserving my sight and saving my lungs
Only way out of this coal miners´ town

Bridge:
National Science Fair
would take us to new heights
Foul play, in the air
We still won by a mile

3rd Chorus:
Straight like an arrow shot out to the Sun
Carrying all my ambitions
Preserving my sight and saving my lungs
One way ticket to Houston

OUTRO:
He had always preached, "It´s a waste of time Cut out the rockets, and work in the mine!"
But on that day, I could see it in my fathers´ eyes
A look of great pride worth more to me than any prize
