"Dead God In Me" as written by and Jesper Claes Haakan/gelotte Stroemblad....
To slit the grinning wounds
From childhood's seven moons
The palette stained with the ejaculated passions
(of forbidden, hedonistic colors...)

Strike from omnipotence; all-seer, all-deemer
And haunt my severed country with your
Dripping, secret games

You pick the unripe lilies
Deflowered and peeled the bleeding petals
Made known to me
The grainy stains, the crimson lotus
Of the Black-Ash inheritance,
The semen feed of gods and masters
The worms still in me,
Still a part of me,
Racing out from leaking rooms,
Swoop from broken lungs to block the transmission
To put an end to the nomad years

Father
You are the
Dead god in me

    General CommentIf we're taking the song literally and not as a giant metaphor,

    I think it's about the narrator witnessing his father raping or having sex with young girls. Or how his father raped his mother as a young girl. Now he rapes/has sex with young girls or has done it in the past and blames his father for giving him the desire to do so. He feels either so bad about what he did or witnessed he wants to kill him self or at least get rid of these times of confusion and emotional anguish.

    At the end he addresses and blames his father,
    or even god/a god.
    I also got the idea that if the song isn't literal it could be about man accusing god for making him inherently evil

    General Commentyeah, i kinda want to find the lyrics to inborn, as well as for this song... i should probably interperate it as nobody else has endevoured to do it, yet....
    *a couple minutes later after rereading it several times*
    yeah... i don't know... can anyone enlighten meh?
    i think the chorus might have something do with the narrators father doing something, and the narrator has always looked up to him like a god untill that point... now his father, or whoever the "father" represents, i should say, is a dead god in him...
    or perhaps it has something to do with religeon, since alot of this album seems to relate to religeon... the father as in God, because there is a renaming of the subject as "dead god in me" and so he has been religeously dissillussioned ^_^

    General CommentThis song is about how everyone has a good and a bad side to them, a God and a devil inside of them.
    Because of the narrators evil deeds, the God inside of him has died.

    General Commentthis song has what could even be sexual innuendo in the deathy bit..."you picled the unripe lillies" could even be reference to child abuse..

    General CommentI agree with Rymon. There are a few sexual innuendos in there and it definitely sounds like child abuse - "the worms still in me, still a part of me."

    Also the child crying at the end of the song might suggest this.

    General CommentI believe it doesnt have a complete sexual meaning. By reading the entire lyrics, i think it referers to as how the human to demoralize himself and began to indulge in his carnal pleasures, not only sexual ones, and how this a stigmata that every mas has to carry (maybe a pseudo reference to the original sin?)
