The Top Becomes The Bottom
The Fantasy Becomes Reality
The Conceptions Change
The Landmarks Dissolve

And All Becomes Intermingled

To Flirt With The Dispicable
In A Trance Without End
Where The Ice Burns
Like Glowing Embers
And Where One Shatters
By Fits And Stars Of Sperm
The Morale Of Men

Serve Another God
Lose Another Dream

Sentiments Imprison And Leave
Their Victims Without Defence
Love Is A Prison Which
Flourishes In The Heart Of The Weak

From The Lower World We Direct
The Attraction Of The Distasteful
Makes Us Ignore The Vile
Since Only From Below
Can One Better See The Heights

    General CommentThis is another song about homosexuality from samael:

    Top becomes the bottom
    (in male female sex the male is usually the top, in gay sex the male can be bottom)

    The Fantasy Becomes Reality
    (engaging in the fantasy of gay sex)
    The Conceptions Change
    (the conception of being only with a woman changes)
    The Landmarks Dissolve
    (the pivotal landmarks such as marriage, having kids changes in homosexual relationships)

    And All Becomes Intermingled
    (there is no longer clear boundaries that love has to be between a man and woman, now it can be between a woman and woman, or a man and man)
    To Flirt With The Dispicable
    (refers to flirting with a something that is hated such as a gay man, this theme of struggle of sexual idenities is a reoccurent theme shown through samael music)
    In A Trance Without End
    (this line identifies that the person is having feelings that consumes with out end)
    Where The Ice Burns
    Like Glowing Embers
    (these lines are about ice burning, which shows that two things that are not suppose to happen with each other, gay sex is not suppose to happen either)
    And Where One Shatters
    By Fits And Stars Of Sperm
    (this is about having sex with men and having an orgasm)
    The Morale Of Men
    (this is questioning whether homosexuality shatters the illusion of what is moral to men)

    Serve Another God
    (this refers to choosing religion and false rules of man over self)
    Lose Another Dream
    (if you do this you will lose all hope of reaching the dream of being at peace with your true self)

    Sentiments Imprison And Leave
    Their Victims Without Defence
    (the ability to love who you want and coming out leaves you no defense against the critical world eyes)
    Love Is A Prison Which
    Flourishes In The Heart Of The Weak
    (Being free to be gay and love who you want to puts you in a prison of judgemental society, but it allows you to love instead of being entrapped by hate, the heart of the weak is that gay people are seen as being weak)

    From The Lower World We Direct
    The Attraction Of The Distasteful
    (attraction to the same sex)
    Makes Us Ignore The Vile
    (this means to ingnore the vile religious text that teaches hate towards gays and society who closed thier minds to accepting others)
    Since Only From Below
    Can One Better See The Heights
    (if you allow yourself to be free you can see the heights that you can reach-happiness
