Down to the earth I fell
With dripping wings,
Heavy things won't fly
And the sky might catch on fire
And burn the axis of the world
That's why
I prefer a sunless sky
To the glittering and stinging in my eye

Feel so light
This is all I wanna feel tonight
Feel so light
Tonight and the rest of my life

Gleaming in the darksea
I'm as light as air
Floating there breathlessly
When the dream dissolves I open up my eyes
I realize that
Everything is shoreless sea
Weightlessness is passing over me

Feel so light
This is all I wanna feel tonight
Feel so light
Tonight and the rest of my life

Everthing is waves and stars
The universe is resting in my arms

I feel so alive
This is all I wanna feel tonight
I feel so light
Tonight and the rest of my life

    I really do feel that this song is about lucifer, and describes his fall from glory.
    "i prefer a sunless sky to the glittering and stinging in my eye" - this is referring to how lucifer prefers darkness rather than the glory of heaven.
    "feel so light" is repeated over and over in the song, which correlates directly with the meaning of lucifer's name - "the light bearer".
    The song goes on to describe the descent and ultimately the impact of reaching earth. Lucifer crashed through the shy and lit on fire, which actually correlates to the bible. In luke 10: 18, it says, "and he said unto them, i beheld satan as lightning fall from heaven. " this song perfectly describes that process.
    "the universe is resting in my arms" - this line of the song connects with lucifer's perception and ultimate goal: "to be like the most high" (isaiah 14: 14).
    So it becomes clear that this song is in fact paying homage to lucifer (or satan) and glorifies his fall from heaven. The song makes the fall sound romantic and even attractive, rather than describing the perversion of rebelling against god.
