Walk with, with me. I'll be your Shadow God
For now, just now. Give your life to me
Your hope, your hope. I feel its steady hand
Your heart, your fear. Take off and flee

Trust me, just me. I'll catch you if you fall
My arms run deep. Run unto my call

I'll lead you into danger
And all that troubles man
I'll lead you far from hunger
Just take my frozen hand

You'll want the world to praise you
And gather at your feet
You'll want my blinding light
And my searing heat

I will lift you above their crying world
Into your heart comes the love of fear

You vanity, your sanctity
Your kindless heart
Your reverance. Your ignorance
Your black uncaring eyes
No sumpathy for humanity. Bleak horror
The genocide, the parasites
The kingdom of the ghost

At one with fear
Careless if you fall
Beneath the earth
Your heart may feel the call

Can't let your mind be tainted
By the praying men
Divinity burns in thunder
Over again

Eventide. By your side
All things because of you
Fantasize. At my side.
The lonely, the few
God above. Lord and love.
It's fools love
heart of fire.
Lord and liar don't falter

    My InterpretationI think this is a love and sex song. Love makes people do crazy things. With S&M, there is some pain involved in sex, along with pleasure. This is a song (to me) about S&M.

    "Walk with, with me. I'll be your Shadow God
    For now, just now. Give your life to me"
    In some S&M relationships, there is a dom or a master. Some doms request to be a certain name. In which case this dom wants to be his sub's "god."


    "Your hope, your hope. I feel its steady hand
    Your heart, your fear. Take off and flee"
    Sometimes fear is involved, which makes S&M more fun to some. His sub has fears on what her "God" will do to her if she has been naughty.

    "Trust me, just me. I'll catch you if you fall
    My arms run deep. Run unto my call
    I'll lead you into danger
    And all that troubles man
    I'll lead you far from hunger
    Just take my frozen hand"
    This dom also have a loving side to him. If his sub has been good, she gets rewarded.

    "You'll want the world to praise you
    And gather at your feet
    You'll want my blinding light
    And my searing heat
    I will lift you above their crying world"
    In other words, if she does what her "God" tells her to do, she can be his good little girl or in this song, more like an angel.

    "Into your heart comes the love of fear"
    The sub is a masochist and is wanting to be punished.

    "You vanity, your sanctity
    Your kindless heart
    Your reverance. Your ignorance
    Your black uncaring eyes
    No sumpathy for humanity. Bleak horror
    The genocide, the parasites
    The kingdom of the ghost

    At one with fear
    Careless if you fall
    Beneath the earth
    Your heart may feel the call"
    The sub is being punished by her dom.

    "Can't let your mind be tainted
    By the praying men
    Divinity burns in thunder
    Over again

    Eventide. By your side
    All things because of you
    Fantasize. At my side.
    The lonely, the few
    God above. Lord and love.
    It's fools love
    heart of fire.
    Lord and liar don't falter"

    General CommentI think it's definitely about religion. Blind faith perhaps?

    General Commentholy hell i love this song. it has religious elements, and yes i kinda agree that it may have something to do with blind faith - its promises, pitfalls, dangers and such

    General CommentI definitely think it's about religion, lines like:

    "I will lift you above their crying world"
    "Into your heart comes the love of fear/Your vanity, your sanctity/Your kindless heart
    "Your reverance. Your ignorance/The genocide, the parasites/The kingdom of the ghost"

    definitely chime for organised religion in my opinion. The only lines that throws me is "Can't let your mind be tainted/By the praying men" - to me that seems like the oppostie of what I think the rest of the song is saying ... anyone know what this line is referring to?
