"For The World To Dictate Our Death" as written by and Stian Tomt/kopperud Thoresen....
Let us sit back and watch
Death and destruction's devotees revel
Let us sit back and witness
innocent semen being poured

Into the arms of Armageddon
Let it pour, more and more
Pure fucking Armageddon
Let it pour more and more

Reason faithfully defiles
On bloodstained hands
Where graceful motion
Are lost arts

There are only battles to be lost
In the kingdoms of the blind
For those who seek salvation
In the dust of the earth
Will only find wrath
In the sands of time

Engulfed by the desert
We taste death in the dry heat
The disciples of prophetic ablution
Had sworn to let the skeptics bleed
For great are their love of warfare
Henchman of the disastrous creed

Watch us all celebrate in their name
The lambs of our time being slain
Awaiting the final perdition
Defeat against all and everything
For whatever adorned righteousness
Justice never wait for the guilty to speak the truth

Into the arms of Armageddon
Let it pour, more and more
Pure fucking Armageddon
Let it pour more and more

For mankind so hated the world
That it gave all its begotten sons and daughters
That whoever believed the lie
To perish and receive everlasting hell

    General Comment"For mankind so hated the world
    That it gave all it's begotten sons and daughters
    That whoever believed the lie
    To perish and receive everlasting hell"

    I believe this last part explains the meaning of the whole song. It's that Mankind hates it's self, therefore it created the ultimate self hatred machine, Christianity. Because, whoever believe the lie (of Christianity), is to believe in being punished to hell for having free will. AKA Christianity makes people resent their own nature and makes them hate themselves. And since sin is inevitable, those who believe in this ever lasting hell are already dammed to it.

    YES YES YES. Some of my favorite lyrics right there. It's about how we all hate the world in a way, and our violence and hate will bring on the death of the earth.

    Man that part just gets you pumped! The whole album has that really awesome kind of war theme involved, this song makes me think that instrumentally, the satanists are arming themselves to fight in Armageddon against many of the lies of christianity.

    Fun song.

    General Commentjust like in Puritania, this song has a speech by some kind of dictator at 0:58 and 3:56,but it doesn´t sound like Hitler or even german to me.I´ve been learning german for a while now,but besides me being a rooker it´s very hard to listen to.if any of you guys know who´s making the speech or in what language it´s spoken, please let me know.
