The death of the Omega pilots the war machine
We shall destroy the earth
Rebuild it
None shall inherit it
Blood turned into fire
Made to drink like wine
Pile up the countless corpses and on them we shall dine

We praise you, war machine
You've come to set us free
Run us through your jaws
Carry us off in your claws

Cut away body from soul
A slave freed from his master
Closing the spirit's eye to embrace this earthly tie

666 (The number of man brought upon by man)

The earth it shall burn bright tonight in our eyes
The earth it shall burn right into our eye on this very night
Praise the war machine
Burn tonight

    General CommentWell, to me it's about the darkness rising up. The chaos after God is dead.

    General Commentmaybe, this might be a stretch, the war machine is like the anitchrist or satan. after God leaves us we seek God but we find the devil disguised as a God and follow him. then the devil uses his newly found followers to terrorize and destroy the earth. see i told you it was a stretch

    General CommentTo an extent, I believe that you are right, Skeezix. But now, this whole song looks different to me. God has made his exit and man tries to take his place. As earth's new rulers, we decide to destroy and rebiuld based on our own minds of how things should be. More death, destruction, decay results (what a surprise) and we attain the fullness of man, 666. Not perfect but closer than ever before in relation to our own greatness. Personally, this song makes me agree with Puck. "Oh what fools these mortals be."

    General Commenti agree with keyman on this one. its the new world order that has come into play. it's all decay and destruction, until the new world is reforged by the men of this world.

    General CommentTo me, I think this song is more or less Armageddon in the album. It is prophecized in "The Rising End" and it is actually carried out here.

    General Commentyes all of you seem to have the right meaning. its based on the same ideas. and the song is truly haunting to think of.
    im glad people chose to interpret the song, besides shun it away like a lot of orthodox christians when they see the title "The Funeral of God"

    General CommentWhoa.

    That was some crazy stuff. Really like the song. As for the meaning, I'm going to have to agree with the opinions here. I need to get this album instead of bumming CDs from people.
