"A Thousand Lies" as written by and Peter Alf Taegtgren....
Come closer.
I've got what you need.
I crawl into your veins.
Satisfaction guaranteed.

[Chorus]
A thousand smiles. A thousand lies.
I'll break you down you'll need more just to stay alive.
A thousand dead. A thousand highs.
Close your eyes and wait to die.
Your life was built on a thousand lies.

I don't know what you're looking for.
I don't know why you keep on crawling back for more.
Erase and rewind.
Your life is gone.
I can read you like an open book.
I'll steal your life like the lives you took.
I'll set you free from what you've become.

See the needle disappear into your skin.
Shoot it up and wait for the thrill.
Lay your body down and wait for the chill
and I'll whisper you lullaby that will kill.

[Chorus]

Throw away everything you've got
For a rush you cannot stop.
Injecting the will, the will to be free.

See the needle disappear into your skin.
Shoot it up and wait for the thrill.
Lay your body down and wait for the chill
and I'll whisper you lullaby that will kill.

    General CommentIf you interpret it literally, it's about heroin.

    If you interpret it metaphorically it's about religion. The heroin is used as a metaphor for religious belief - It makes you happy but the happiness is based on lies, hence the title "A Thousand Lies". Just like heroin makes you happy temporarily, but the happiness is fake because it doesn't really solve your problems or give you any real reasons to be happy. Religion also traps you in like heroin because it makes you believe that if you leave you will go to hell and this scares people off from leaving. This fear could be compared to the withdrawal effects of addictive drugs like heroin.

    General CommentThe song seems to be about heroin, or less likely another drug administered by a siringe. It basically talks about how it is slowly killing you, whether the user of the drug is himself or someone he knows.

    General CommentThis is an inner dialogue between a man and his conscience. His conscience is mocking him for all the shit he has done, and is telling him that he will slowly fade away into the abyss, just like the millions before him.

    General CommentI agree with cpf on the metaphor of heroin, but I think it has more to do with our society in general, not just religion- I think the entire album may be a concept album about a scourge of demon esque beasts (even possibly aliens?) come to obliterate mankind becasue of their discust for humans and our way of life. Along the album they point out many flaws in our daily lives, what we fuck up and they go around killing people. To support that the concept of sharing their holy seed comes up in Warpath and the process is shown in Blooddrenched.
