6:03 Starting here, I become overwhelmed n almost suffocated. It's so powerful n pushing-forward that there's no time to rest. He was truly genius. Truly a stargazer who was already a star

Some comments from a few years ago calling this song epic. There was an epidemic of EpicTourette’s back then. Some called the epidemic epic which really belabored the point. I’m just trying to remember what people called it prior to that.

Stargazer
Rainbow
Produced by Martin Birch
Album: The Very Best of Rainbow

[Verse One: Rainbow]

High noon, oh I'd sell my soul for water
Nine years worth of breakin' my back
There's no sun in the shadow of the wizard
See how he glides, why he's lighter than air?
Oh, I see his face

[Hook: Rainbow]

Where is your star?
Is it far, is it far, is it far?
When do we leave?
I believe, yes, I believe

[Chorus: Rainbow]

In the heat and the reign
With whips and chains
To see (2c) him fly
So many died
We build a tower of stone
With our flesh and bone
Just to see him fly
But don't know why
Now where do we go?

[Verse Two: Rainbow]

Hot wind, moving fast across the desert
We feel that our time has arrived
The world spins, while we put his dream together
A tower of stone to take him straight to the sky
Oh, I see his face

[Hook: Rainbow]

Where is your star?
Is it far, is it far, is it far?
When do we leave?
Hey, I believe, I believe

[Chorus: Rainbow]

In the heat and the rain
With whips and chains
Just to see him fly
Too many died
We build a tower of stone
With our flesh and bone
To see him fly
But we don't know why
Ooh, now where do we go

[Verse Three: Rainbow]

All eyes see the figure of the wizard
As he climbs to the top of the world
No sound, as he falls instead of rising
Time standing still, then there's blood on the sand
Oh, I see his face

[Hook: Rainbow]

Where was your star?
Was it far, was it far?
When did we leave?
We believed, we believed, we believed

[Chorus: Rainbow]

In heat and rain
With the whips and chains
To see him fly
So many died
We built a tower of stone
With our flesh and bone
To see him fly
But why
In all the rain
With all the chains
Did so many die
Just to see him fly
Look at my flesh and bone
Now, look, look, look, look
Look at his tower of stone
I see a rainbow rising
Look there, on the horizon
And I'm coming home, I'm coming home, I'm coming home
Time is standing still
He gave back my will
Ooh ooh ooh ooh
Going home
I'm going home
My eyes are bleeding
And my heart is leaving here
Wish I'd known
Wish I'm home
Ooh

[Outro: Rainbow]

Take me back
He gave me back my will
Ooh ooh ooh ooh
Going home
I'm going home
My eyes are bleeding
And my heart is leaving here
Wish I'd known
Wish I'm home
Ooh
Ooh
Take me back, take me back
Back to my home ooh, ooh, ooh

When Keyboards and synthesizers were used so tastefully... They were part of the Band not just to make a thunder sound or a... nm
In anycase, this is not about the Tower of Babble, which they still use to divide us to this day.
I feel this song is based on what DIO taught me through so many years. Follow your Dreams, anything is possible, just always hold onto your Dreams and you can make them come true.
Where as this song is about society , whether enslaved or blindly following someone else. They build their Dream on the backs of the bruised and empty promises to the point that it's not until the Wizard Dies, that they wish they had followed their own dreams.
That is politics these days, religious extremists, corporations (fired before you retired). So many ways to look at it.
But originally to me... it was a man who believed in this Wizards Dream to touch the Heavens and Fly. Then Everyone would be able to climb the Tower and touch the sky. Year after year season after season working in the worst conditions believing in someone else's Dream... Believing and sacrificing everything for this one goal... And this being 2000 B.C. or 4000 B.C. or? I'm sure many a person believed that you could build a tower and reach the Heavens.. When I was in High school in the 80s and we were taught of the Pyramids and such. People enslaved, believers, captured armies etc. Building these towers of Stone ... To Touch the clouds, The Heavens, The Face of God..... Or even The Flight of Icarus....
DIO was great at warning us of following false idols. DIO wanted us to follow our own Dreams... And if your going to follow someone else , beware.... So many people are out their to steal your Dreams, to Entice you into following them, as Sirens have done since Time Memorial.. signing to the sailor to crash their ships upon the Rocky shore...
I have to go now, just a few more stones in the spire. I think we are almost there... You should all come join us. You have to meet this guy err umm Wizard.. He is Amazing , just come meet him, he will talk you into joining us , He will LET YOU help us build the Tower, then we shall all fly..
I better get off the Phone. WE just have a little higher to go!

The reason people write "long" songs anymore are because they either don't know how, or people just shudder at such a thought
