"Black Sun" as written by and Lisa/perry Gerrard....
Murderer
Man of fire

Murderer
I've seen the eyes of living dead
It's the same game, survival
The great mass play a waiting game
Embalmed, crippled, dying in fear of pain
All sense of freedom gone

Black sun in a white world
Like having a black sun in a white world

I have a son
His name is Eden
It's his birthright
Beyond estranged time

Give me 69 years
Another season in this hell
It's all sex and death as far as eyes can tell

Like Prometheus we are bound
Chained to this rock of a brave new world
Our godforsaken lot
And I feel that's all we've ever needed to know
'Til worlds end and the seas run cold

Give me 69 years
Another season in this hell
There is sex and death
In mother nature's plans

Like Prometheus we are bound
Chained to this rock of a brave new world
Our godforsaken lot

    General CommentPrometheus - the Titan who stole fire from the Gods and gave it to humans. His punishment was to be chained to a rock and have his liver eaten by an eagle... and it would grow back and be eaten again every day thereafter. The cycle of life, death, and life again. No matter how good our intentions, there is always a battle between good and evil, life and death. God - and mother nature - created a cyclical pattern in which we exist. God created Eden for Adam and Eve... and what happened? Same thing that happens to us all... innocence and freedom gone due to our greed, envy, etc... and paradise was ruined forever. Look at us now, overrun by filth, evil, hatred, greed, envy... overrun by the seven deadly sins. It's all just sex and death now. We're just a pathetic god-forsaken lot, aren't we? And eventually - probably sooner than later, mother nature and God will just determine that we're beyond redemption and the cycle will end for us. Our world will end, and it will begin anew... once again a white world (pure) without the stain (evil).

    Song MeaningTotal beast reference. 69 years refers to many things, including the year that he was born, possibly around the release of the Satanic Bible (Dec 1st), Charles Manson's indictment (Dec 3rd), or Altamont Free Concert (Dec 6th)... Meaning he'll turn 40 within a month, the timing may be significant.

    My InterpretationBlack Sun was a occult Nazi symbol, present in the SS castle of Wewelsburg. The Murderer, man of fire could be Hitler, or more presumably Himmler the leader of the SS who was obsessed with German pagan symbolism. The living dead, great game of survival, crippled, dying in fear of pain, all sense of freedom gone refers to WW2 or Holocaust that was made by these madman hiding under the Black Sun symbol. The castle where SS leaders planned genocide had large Black Sun carved in the main hall. The son Eden, his birthright beyond estranged time could mean racial policies by the Nazis. 69 years is change of season, period of time that will came after start/end of the WW2. As everything since then was hell, nothing but a sex and death. The chained Prometheus of the Brave New world are mankind, that has been godforsaken for the horrors of the war. WW2 was every one responsibility as the man was pursuing dream for the Brave New World (the term comes from Aldous Huxley novel written 1931) and did not bear the consequences. And now the result is slow decay, in mothers natures plans till the world ends and seas run cold. I simply see the Nazi connection because of their use of Black Sun symbol and first lines about murdering and killing.
