I gain energy from your attack
Feed on the venom you spew
I find destiny in the certainty of death
Turning what you say against you

The beginning, found within the end
Triumph bringing a sense of loss

Chaosweaver
From the shadows you hide
In defiance
You are hollow inside

In your assault I find nourishment
Your verbal weapons inspire me
All that you throw at me gives comfort
In this continual dance of eternity

The beginning, found within the end
Triumph bringing a sense of loss

Chaosweaver
From the shadows you hide
In defiance
You are hollow inside
Chaosweaver
You're the poisonous wine
Words of venom
Casting pearls before swine

Solo: Per

Weave the end of time
It's slipping away from you
Away from your soul
In your last abide, awaken inside
And realize

Chaosweaver
From the shadows you hide
In defiance
You are hollow inside
Chaosweaver
You're the poisonous wine
Words of venom
Casting pearls before swine
Chaosweaver
From the shadows you hide
In defiance
You are hollow inside

    General CommentSeriously, no one has commented this yet? First song on the first album.. And it’s simply amazing. Especially the intro.

    But like most of their work it’s heavily metaphorical and I can’t get an idea of what they’re referring to..

    Very good song though. :]

    General CommentAmazing intro as mentioned! Great way to start a great album! It seems to be about defying something evil and using it to fuel you. To me it's talking about religion..."I find destiny in the certainty of death" may be going against the idea of heaven or an afterlife. The mention of the "poisonous wine" is the most obvious hint to me though.

    General CommentI think this song has a lot of meaning regarding the current state of the world. A highly negative place, filled with highly negative people, controlled by highly negative organizations. People in general I think have taken a wrong turn somewhere which accounts for all of the horrors we see and hear about in the world. Hence creating "Chaos" or "Weaving Chaos". With no sense of self or people in general, a lack of peace and unity, people become "hollow inside". Machine like. Example: The Skull on their main site-inside the skull is a machine.

    So what it comes down to, if you have beliefs, that are un-orthodox you are looked at differently. When you look outside of the box, people react to you negatively nor do they/can they accept whatever belief system you may hold on to which is un-conventional-people tend to fear that which they do not understand causing them to react Negatively.
    "I gain energy from your attack
    Feed on the venom you spew"
    In your assault I find nourishment
    Your verbal weapons inspire me
    All that you throw at me gives comfort
    In this continual dance of eternity
    Instead of him being brought down by those who do not understand, and "attack" him for thinking differently he gains the dispersed energy which is given to him.

    There is a lot of information within all of their songs which looked at objectively can be found within hidden truths.

    General CommentI agree on much you say maulsl. Allthough I phrase my opinions differently than you would do.

    Basically, even though a person may be intelligent, we still have not evolved far enough too lay down the side of which that conjure hatred. I believe this is an explanation of intelligent persons gaining higher motivation from the attacks of those he views as currently lesser beings.

    The lyrics is the mindset of someone who knows he is above others, and no matter what intricate lies they perform against him - he knows them to his core that they are untrue. Venom in this case is falsehood, and trying to stop someone with the falseness is kinda like dozing a fire with gasoline, hoping it to stop burning.

    I also do believe that this song is not about those who openly expose themselfs as believers of certain mindsets, and strive to learn this mindset to others. Those mentioned are the ones unsure of their choice of belief, yet they defend it without thought. Hollow inside - it is something they cling onto and perhaps define themselfs against, yet they do not fully believe it.

    It is basically these people there are most of in this world too, but they are perhaps harder to single out, as they voice their opinions discretly (From the shadows) in the hidaway, safe environment of friends. There, they may can influence other people slowly, without riscing themselfs - it may not even be a consiouss effort! But still, it is making the writer of these lyrics furious.

    Henrik O. is a serious thinker. I love these concepts.
