"The Fallen Angel" as written by Richie Ranno, Michael Lee Smith, Brendan Jr. Harkin, Sean Delaney, Joe Dube and Pieter Sweval....
Azazel is beside you and he's playing the game
Demons are inside you and they're making their play
Watching and they're hiding as they wait for the time
For a devil to get ready and take over your mind

You and only god would know what could be done
You and only god will know I am the only one
You and only god would know what could be done
You and only god will know I am the chosen one

Could it be it's the end of our world?
All the things that we cherish and love
Nothing left but to face this all on my own
Cause I am the chosen one

Could it be it's the end of our world?
All the things that we cherish and love
Nothing left but to face this all on my own
Cause I am the chosen one

Beaten fallen angel but I've risen again
And the power is inside me, I've decided to pray
As I wait for Armageddon and it's coming my way
It's an honour to be chosen and I wait for the day

You and only god would know what could be done
You and only god will know I am the only one
You and only god would know what could be done
You and only god will know that I am the chosen one

Could it be it's the end of my world?
All the things that we cherish and love
Nothing left but to face all this on my own
Cause I am the chosen one

Could it be it's the end of our world?
All the things that we cherish and love
Nothing left but to face this all on my own
Cause I am the chosen one

Could it be it's the end of our world?
All the things that we cherish and love
Nothing left but to face this all on my own
Cause I am the chosen one

Could it be it's the end of our world?
All the things that we cherish and love
Nothing left but to face this all on my own
Cause I am the chosen one

    General CommentOnce again, another beautiful song written about the book Brave New World by Aldous Huxley. This song speaks of John the Savage and how he alone can face the "utopian society" and learn all of its secrets. The new society could be the end of the world, and John must face the horrible truth alone (his mother dies and Bernard goes away).

    General CommentThis song is also likened to the story of the grigori. or loosely translated as the watchers. Azazel is one of the most notable angels. They took a liking to the daughters of man and in exchange for pleasures they taught secrets of heaven such as how to build weapons astrology and vanity in form of cosmetics. the grigori mated with the women and created a race of giants called the nephilim and when God saw what they had done he cursed them and flooded the earth hence noahs flood. Azazel was apart of an order of God called the cherubium and were killed in the flood but are left to roam the earth as demons. the chosen one implied is a new fallen angel. in the form of the next to follow the evils of the cherubium

    General CommentNicely stated BIOhazard, and insightful depication, as always, RainbowDemon. But now time to combine the two. The use of Azazel was a very potent allusion, and greatly contributes to the society of Huxlies aclaimed novel. Notably, Azazel introduced vanity and new impuraties to the world, which John must confront. The rest of the world is consumed by the evils of Azazel, as depicted in the first verse. Ultimatly, John is the only one in this world that retains any piety, any knowlage and belief in God, and thus he is alone, however he feels himself fall into impurety because of the desires this 'new world' arouses in him. He flees London and in solitude offers prayers and self-mortification in exchange for the allieviation of his sins.

    General Commenti think the song is about satan himself,not azazel, i think the reference to azazel just sybolizes the sinful nature that was brought to the world and how sin surrounds you and demons wait for you to fall into it. he is after all satan is the " the fallen angel" the bible says that he was a cherubium and that God cast him out of heaven...yea that whole story. the book of revelation is all about the battle of Armageddon and how satan roams the earth waiting for it and plans to fight the army of heaven along side his own army....just my interpretation

    General CommentThis song is not about the Brave New World book or the Apocrypha story. It's based on the biblical Azazel(Satan). Not the fallen Cherubim mentioned in the Apocrypha. A bit of history before I say why. First of all a Cherubim is a higher order of being when compared to an Archangel, which Lucifer was. They are never reffered to as some kind of angel. In Revelations they are called beings or creatures around the throne of God. An honor that not even an Archangel has. There is no such mention of a Cherubim falling in to sin in the bible. Nor was there another Archangel cast from heaven. Since Lucifer was the most powerful (and the mad one behind this doomed plan) angel that was cast from heaven. He is the ruler of the demons.

    Now in the biblical book of Leviticus. God commanded Aaron to sacrifice one goat to him for redemption of the sins of the children of Israel. Aaron was to lay his hand on a second goat's head and confess all the sins of Israel. Then it was sent in to the desert for Azazel. Which is why in the pentagram, you see a goat head representing Satan/Azazel/Baphomet/etc.

    Now that I've established that Satan and Azazel are the same. I will tell why the song is not based on the Azazel from the fictional Apocrypha. Simply because the fallen ANGEL in the song waits for Armaggedon. Not the other "end of the world" that was caused by the Noah's ark flood story.
    Where the Grigory were destroyed.

    I can see how some of you could say that the song reffers to the Apocrypha or the Brave New World story. But that is just a deception by the band in order to accept this as prolific depiction of those two events.

    General Commentzac2125 is right. RainbowDemon is wrong yet again. Only the song Brave New World is about the novel. People get confused and think it's a concept album because it's also the name of the album.
