Rhye does it have any meaning?, It's a place, a thing? well here in México it was translated as "Los Siete Mares de Armonía"(Armonía-harmony). Do you know something?



And as the seasons turn the days to years

She holds her pictures, hears the silent cheers

The days grow lonely for the dancing Queen

And now she dances only in her dreams...

WHOAAAA!!!! That must be it!!! "The Seven Seas Of Booze" Would be wonderful!!!

Next question: "What kind of booze????"

I prefer Amaretto di Sarrono or Tequilla. Just normal beer is also okay.


You've never seen nothing like it, no never in your life. Like going up to heaven and then coming back alive.

Rye is a grain used to make whiskey and cereal, so I've always assumed this was an archaic spelling of the word. Also, I've also always assumed the song was about the seas drying up and being replaced by said grain and therefore literally creating oceans of alcohol...

*Edit option not functioning*
Also, the sugggestion of the song being about Hell is also arguable as there is no water in Hell.

I think I remember hearing something about how the song had to do with a city named Rhy, or something like that. All they did was add an 'e' to the end and played it as that.

I don't know, that's what I heard from somewhere, I'll see if I can find it.

On a bare and weathered shore

We can only bow to the here and now

In our elemental war
