"In Death's Embrace" as written by Stian Tomt Thoresen and Sven Atle Kopperud....
By the light of the moon
And the beings of the night
A curse has been laid upon us
To seek and tear celestial gloss
To pieces

By the power of death
And the shadow of the Reaper
A call has been brought upon us
To complete the infinite fall
Of heaven

Without the wit or will to end this journey
We continue traveling toward our faith
Harvesting helpless Christian spirits
Raping the sanctity of saints

The heavenly father is streching his hand
Pathetically begging to mercy
We spit and piss on his sacred flesh
As we breathe the breath on the unholy

For with the sign of the pentagram
Hellfire rage is for us to come
As we shall wander the pit
Unhallowed by the infernal one
We are forever captured
By the embrace of death

    General CommentWell, the title is somewhat self-explanatory, this song personfies death as an entity which is above all else. One could almost differently interpret Death is the one shapeless ultimate god who is responsible for the grand design. Death will capture us all, and all here means heaven, the "Heavenly Father" and Satan too. The reason I am saying this is that in the song the pargraph: " The heavenly father is streching his hand
    pathetically begging to mercy
    We spit and piss on his sacred flesh
    as we breathe the breath on the unholy" relates to the incident when god begged for his life in front of Death. We often state that satan and god are equal or the former being somewhat more powerful. So if god begs for his life then Satan is already dead. Personally I always liked the above mentioned paragraph even before I could understant what Shagrath is saying, I just like the sound of it.
