about

This is the first ever vocal song to appear on a Bob Katsionis solo album! It was partially conceived live(!) during my "Performance and Recording Master-class" in Athens.
Originally intended for use by Firewind,since it features the "patented" keyboard-riffing of the band's past but due to the latest change in our sound to a less-keyboard driven direction,using it for my solo album was a...blessing! Right after this,I started looking for the perfect voice
to fit both the attitude of the lyrics and the music.But my quest ended sooner than I expected, as the talented Greek/British singer Peter Ellis offered to do a demo for it. And that was it!
His unique blend of Dickinson-Tate-Kiske-Halford (!!!) styles of singing along with his powerful attitude made the song one of the best and more trademark-sounding songs I've ever written!

lyrics

ON MY OWN

I never knew,
some day will come and look me in the eyes
and wonder why,my spirit's low
and all my dreams will die.
Prisoner,In a world,where everybody shines
I tried to play their game...

But my heart
Was never there,
I was living in a lie
Noone knew the things I care.
And the silence,
Turned to rage
And my silent tears of anger
Broke the cage.

I'M ON MY OWN
I'VE NEVER FELT SO FREE
DEEP IN MY SOUL
MY JOURNEY NOW BEGINS
I'M TIRED OF CHASING SHADOWS
AND LIVING IN THE DARK
IT'S TIME TO LISTEN TO THE VOICES
TELLING ME "BE BRAVE AND CARRY ON"...
I'M ON MY OWN

And then the day had come at last
To make the final call
To live my dream,and pave my way
The winner takes it all.
Victory or Defeat,no choices left behind
I let you live your lie...

But my (he)art
Was never there,
I was living in a lie
Noone knew the things I care.
And the silence,
Turned to rage
And my silent tears of anger
Broke the cage.
