The Prisoner Of Paradise

This song is by Dio and appears on the album Master of the Moon (2004).

Bring me down, drag me away from heaven
But look out, angels guard the door
We all choose pain if pleasure is ordinary
Then we beg for more and more and more

Oh lock me up in an institution and throw away the key
Then I'm free
The prisoner of paradise

Take me down, I've gone too high, so hurry
How this can be real?
I paid for the ride and got wishes for eternity
And here's one more, I wish that you would steal them

Tie me down and don't believe me if I say I'm free
It's still me
The prisoner of paradise

Bring me down, if I could start all over
Would I do the same?
Oh I'd try for a while, then hunger for the recipe
And all I'd hear is, "Isn't it a shame?"

Oh wrap me up in some chains and you can push me out to sea
Cover me up with the ocean then I'm free
The prisoner of paradise
