(music & lyrics: Griffin, Russell)

Man In The Sky, throw me a lifeline;
I'm just gettin', by burnin' the midnight oil.
Man In The Sky, I'm tryin' to tell you,
I come to find it's not worth fightin' for.

Ah, the sun in my eyes is all that I'm livin' for,
Ah, full moon on the rise is all that's worth dyin' for.

Man In The Sky, I'm dyin' to see you,
I realize that I'm getting old.
Man In The Sky, I'm trying to tell you,
It's time to fly, freedom is my choice.

Man In The Sky, I'm caught in the pipeline,
I'm just getting by burning the midnight oil...
Man In The Sky, I'm trying to tell you,
I've come to find it ain't worth fighting for.

...All that's worth dying for

Man In The Sky, Man In The Sky,
Dyin' to see you, dyin' to see you, ohhh, ohhh...
It's all that's worth dyin' for,
All that's worth dyin' for.
Man In The Sky...
It's all that's worth dyin' for...
It's all that's worth dyin' for.

    Its a suicide song but one of spiritual release. He wants to see his god and is near the brink as he has given up on the earthly fight for materialism.
