"Born Of Fire" as written by Kerry King and Jeffery John Hanneman....
Join in my quest to leave life overturned
Spanning the world wave of doom
Spewing out death with the evil I've churned
Awaken the dead from their tomb
Love turns to lust the sensations I've felt
Exploring the pleasures of sin
Making the best of the cards I've been dealt
Adjusting the odds so I win

Unleash all my burning wrath
Potential killing machine
Take down all who block my path
Enjoying all that's obscene...born of fire

Prince of all darkness initiation
Ritually baptized in flames
Next to the throne my abomination
Spreads horror throughout the domain
Master the art that controls the impure
Inherit the infamous keys
Thousands of centuries I will endure
Tyrant of all the prophecies

Some have called me Satan's son
A name I cannot deny
Wielding fury that's second to none
Far too vile to confine, born of fire

All things dead must rise again
When twilight's blanket falls
Splattered red you'll find my den
Blood dripping from the walls

Dreams born of desire
Shaped and forged within the fire
Twisted, warped, deranged I see
The world's corrupt insanity

Dreams possess nightmarish figures
Burning can't escape the embers
Lost are those who trust the Liar
Satan's son I'm born of fire

    General CommentI think that this is describing the concept of an anti-Christ but not in the usual sense. I think that this is introducing the idea that Satan may have sent a son of his up to earth just as Christians believe that God sent his son Jesus down to earth. Jesus was sent to preach God's word and save humanity's sins but now Satan has sent HIS son to wreak havoc. As Jesus was "born of a virgin," Satan's son is "born of fire"---an opposite type of "immaculate conception." That's my take on it.

    General CommentHow creative, Nihasa.

    Anyway, I see this song as being about someone with a pompous sense of self, or a defensive posture based on societies regard. That is, society labeling them EVIL or SATANS SON or some of the many other ridiculous labels society puts on people who wear dark clothes and listen to metal music.
