"The Reckoning" as written by Jason Charles Miller, Ullrich Gerd Hepperlin, Michael K. Miller and James M. O'connor....
Come to me
Kill for me
Worship me
Follow everything I do
As you bow before me
I'm the one they told you
Would come again
Let me show you all the signs
To bring about the end

I'll take you down
To a hole where you
Will always be alone
I'll turn you out
On a world that doesn't
Care if you belong

I'll push you off
Of the throne that
You erected for yourself
You will be tossed
On a pile of all the
Filth that you created

I watched you take the power
In your hands and
Throw it all away
I knew you would
Fall down again someday

Come on now
You know I won't hurt you
Come on now
I'm here to protect you
Come on now I'll
Lead you to shelter
Come on now you know

I'll take you down
To a hole where you
Will always be alone
I'll turn you out
On a world that doesn't
Care if you belong

I'll push you off
Of the throne that
You erected for yourself
You will be tossed
On a pile of all the
Filth that you created

I'll take you down
To a hole where you
Will always be alone
I'll turn you out
On a world that doesn't
Care if you belong

I'll push you off
Of the throne that you
Erected for yourself
You will be tossed
On a pile of all the
Filth that you created

    General CommentYeah this song seriosly rocks, i think i sorta know what the songs about. 'The Reckoning' is the thing after the resurection of Christ where God will judge every soul and decide whether to send them to hell or let them into heaven sooo......well the chorus is obviously about hell -

    a hole where you will always be alone - well its hell isnt it, your gonna be alone forever

    a world that doesn't care if you belong - no-one at all gives a damn about you down there

    I'll push you off
    Of a throne that you erected for yourself -
    could be Satan saying your not gonna be your own boss anymore, your my slave now

    OK but i think the actual song is basically saying God tells you all your life that you can come to heaven (Come on now, you know I won't hurt you
    Come on now, I'm here to protect you
    Come on now, I'll lead you to shelter ) but even if you do everything right, and make 1 tiny mistake, God will send you down to Hell the worst place imaginable (as described in the chorus).
    And basically you've dedicated your life to God and now your in hell. God damit that would piss you off a bit

    General CommentI'll push you off
    Of a throne that you erected for yourself
    You will be tossed
    On the pile of all the filth that you created

    The song isn't about how well you behave and still go to hell but about how humans abused their own power and how they'll pay for it
