Profound is the pain from which is born deliverance
Long is the path which leads to the light
And you march alone ...

Wash your hands in the blood
Of the lamb
Lick your punishment
This stern eye you fear
This condemning finger pointed at you
Make them both part of yourself
Make one out of two
And remember

Regret is a worm born from your jealousy
Someone lives on in the depths of your heart

Fight your deepest feelings
Deny your own existence
It never heals, it never heals

Opposing darkness to obscurity
Doesn’t lead anywhere
Shine if you want to be

Profound is the pain from which is born deliverance
Long is the path which leads to the light ...

    General CommentThis is another Samael song that may be about sexuality. The light is much of samael music can be viewed as accepting who you are. This is just my interpretation of the song

    Profound is the pain from which is born deliverance
    (to confess that you are gay is to give up the burden of having a secret but family and friends will reject you)
    Long is the path which leads to the light
    (coming out is a long process)
    And you march alone ...
    (it is hard to connect with others and the gay lifestyle is often lonly)


    Wash your hands in the blood
    Of the lamb
    (this refers to that a gay person must defy god laws to be happy)
    Lick your punishment
    (lick your wounds is something that an animal does for thier wounds do not infected, a person who is gay must pretend that thier sin is ok)
    This stern eye you fear
    This condemning finger pointed at you
    (this refers to god's eyes )
    Make them both part of yourself
    Make one out of two
    (this is speaking of hating yourself by incorporating society and god)
    And remember

    Regret is a worm born from your jealousy
    (regret of not being yourself grows and grows)
    Someone lives on in the depths of your heart
    (this is speaking that even though the person denied who they are, they are still themselves)

    Fight your deepest feelings
    Deny your own existence
    It never heals, it never heals
    (talking here about denying yourself heals nothing and the pain gets worst and worst)

    Opposing darkness to obscurity
    Doesn�t lead anywhere
    Shine if you want to be
    (this song ends on a postitive note that once you accept yourself your life will shine

    Profound is the pain from which is born deliverance
    Long is the path which leads to the light ...
    (this is a repeat of first line and saying that the pain of self acceptance will lead to a better ending),
