Behold the man without strength
The strongest man that ever lived
Behold the end of all things
The end of all things just beginning
The weak are marching on with one objective
Take back the times
These days are evil
No one can stop them
The dead rise up to praise You
Your love goes far beyond the grave
It's life or death
Now make your choice
Whose side are you on?

    General CommentI love the open riffs in this song! It is incredible! The Lyrics are great, though vaguelly understandable. But, what can You expect from a Black Metal band? But the coolest part is that they're christian! You can headbang to thier music while keeping your morals! ROCK ON! \m/

    General CommentIt's not black metal, but I have to say that BTA's done well in sticking to their Christian beliefs while retaining the ability to make kick-ass songs. New album rocks btw.

    Song MeaningI LOVE this song!

    Behold the man without strength
    The strongest man that ever lived

    Jesus was a man without strength in that he was fully human and at the mercy of the Romans to be crucified. (John 1:14)
    Jesus was the strongest man that ever lived in that he was fully God and in complete control of his life and death. (John 10:18)

    Behold the end of all things
    The end of all things just beginning

    When Christ comes again to judge the living and the dead, it will be the end of all things as we know it. He will establish the New HEaven and the New earth and that will be just the beginning of the rest of eternity!

    The weak are marching on with one objective
    Take back the times
    These days are evil
    No one can stop them

    The 'weak' who are marching are Christians who will be victorious in the battle against evil. Their one objective, to have victory over sin. Though they are weak they fight with the strength supplied by God. Hence no one can stop them.

    The dead rise up to praise You
    Your love goes far beyond the grave

    The dead will rise up when Christ comes again. (Acts 24:15)
    Though we may physically die, if we believe in Christ we will love. God's love does go beyond the grave (John 11:25,26)

    It's life or death
    Now make your choice
    Whose side are you on?

    General CommentRoystonvaz, I think your explanation/ interpretation is a good one.
    This song is awesome, for it speaks of things to come. As Christians, we will prevail over sin if we fully trust God and let Him help us daily in our life struggle.
    The vocalist has cool deep vocals, quite interesting to listen to.

    General CommentThis is NOT black metal.... It's metalcore. It's is christina, i'll give you that.

    The song, i believe it's about the last days of humanity, the chance of redemption before the meeting with the Lord.

    I came here to look for that, but ended up undestanding it myself.
