I remember, we were flying along,
And hit something in the air...

Laying here, looking at the ceiling,
Someone lays a sheet across my chest.
Something warm is flowing down my fingers
Pain is flowing all through my back.

I try to move my arm and there's no feeling
And when I look, I see there's nothing there.
The face beside me stopped bleeding
The girl I knew has such a distant stare.

I remember, we were flying along,
And hit something in the air.

Then I look straight at the attendant,
His face is pale as it can be.
He bends and whispers something softly,
He says there's no chance for me.

I remember, we were flying along,
And hit something in the air.

Life is flowing out my body,
Pain is flowing out with my blood.
The sheets are red and moist where I'm lying.
God in Heaven, teach me how to die.

I remember, we were flying along,
And hit something in the air.

    The motivation for writing this song was explained in 2005 by guitarist lee pickens. “when i was 17, i wanted to be an airline pilot,” pickens said. “i had just gotten out of this airplane with a friend of mine, at this little airport, and i watched him take off. He went about 200 feet in the air, rolled and crashed. ” the band decided to write a song around the incident and include it on their second album.

    D.O.A. by Bloodrock, an eerie song that came out in the early 70's. The lyrics were enough to avoid death just the thought of the sheet pulled over your head. I remember it well when I heard it. Macabre for the time then again we listened to Black Sabbath.

    This song used to scare me as a younger person. Years later I found it online and decided I liked the synthetic sounds. Still kinda scary but cool too.

    Isn't it just beautiful :) not sure what it means? Always thought it was a car wreck - but i'l take your word on the plane theory. My brother left me a crate of vinyl when i was 8. The b2b album was one of them. Again, isn't it just beautiful !
