"Walk with me in hell" as written by David Randall Blythe, Mark Morton, Will Adler, John Campbell and Chris Adler....
Pray for blood
Pray for the cleansing
Pray for the flood
Pray for end of this nightmare
This lie of a life can as quickly as it came dissolve

We seek only reprieve
And welcome the darkness
The myth of a meaning, so lost and forgotten

Take hold of my hand
For you are no longer alone
Walk with me in hell

Pray for solace
Pray for resolve
Pray for a savior
Pray for deliverance
Some kind of purpose, a glimpse of a light in this void of existence

Oh...
Now witness the end of an age
Hope dies in hands of believers
Who seek the truth in the liar's eyes

Take hold of my hand
For you are no longer alone
Walk with me in hell

Walk with me in hell
Walk with me in hell
Walk with me in hell
Walk with me in hell
Walk with me in hell

Take hold of my hand
For you are no longer alone
Walk with me in hell

Walk with me in hell
Walk with me in hell

You're never alone
You're never alone
You're never alone

You're never alone
You're never alone
Walk with me in hell

    General CommentI think this song is about how people rely on religion, and how if religion was suddenly gone, theyre lives would fall apart. Some religions see those who dont follow religion at all, or other religions as those who will go to Hell, maybe "walk with me in Hell" means abandon religion all together?

    General CommentI think this song is about people who can't find solace in their religious beliefs. Randy is sort of playing the part of Satan (Although it could just be metaphorical), telling people to essentially embrace their dark sides, their inner evils as comfort for what religion left them with.

    As he says

    "You're never alone"

    Because we will always have our demons to turn to.

    And for pure, letting the entire album run through goodness, I gotta agree with BTP17 - Palaces is classic. I think Sacrament might be my new favourite though, sorry.

    General Commenthmm i think the hell he's talking about is life itself.. not hell as in the hell you go to after you die. but he's saying that life on earth has become so ugly that it's equvilant to hell..
    "The myth of a meaning, so lost and forgotten"
    we often believe that life does have a meaning, but he's suggesting that it probably doesn't, that the phrase "life has a meaning" is just a myth.. and if it ever did have some meaning, it was lost a long time ago. but people still do look for a purpose- "Some kind of purpose, a glimpse of a light in this void of existence".

    "Hope dies in hands of believers
    Who seek the truth in the liar's eyes"

    Those who believe in big things (such as religion) really do it to satisfy their need for some answers, so they think they find the Truth in religion or whatever it might be.. but really it's all a lie.
    "witness the end of an age".

    General CommentWalk with me in Hell sounds alot like rehab. I know Randy Blythe was dealing with alcoholism and perhaps this song is about finding someone to confide in during difficult times.

    General CommentOk, so the person who said it addresses the destruction of codependency, do you know what that means?

    Taking that idea it does make a lot of sense though

    Take Hold Of My Hand
    For You Are No Longer Alone
    Walk With Me In Hell

    I always thought those first two lines were almost hopeful, but thinking about it, it could be saying that relying on someone else is like hell. If you get my drift.

    This is almost too good to be true!
    You've obviously not read the statement on LoG's O-F-F-I-C-I-A-L site where they've written: "...Walk With Me In Hell' addresses the destruction of codependency...". Sounds pretty much like the "destruciton of codependency" is the subject of the song.

    As written by ASnowCappedRomance, 2: "I always thought those first two lines were almost hopeful, but thinking about it, it could be saying that relying on someone else is like hell. If you get my drift."

    Also sounds pretty much like codependency to me.

    ALL PROBLEMS SOLVED!

    General CommentOh god... the clanging at the end of this song adds such an amazing touch. The solo is very well done too. I don't think this album's gonna be their best (yet) but from what I've heard of it, I think it may really grow on me in time.

    As for the meaning, i think it has something to do with religion...For the empty hoping and praying for the second coming of Jesus. I take it the "liar" Randy's talking about is Christianity. Just going off on a limb though...

    But I don't think it has anything to do with war, cause as I remember, someone said that the album's going to stray from the usual war themes.

    General CommentWow, love this song, it gives me that warm fuzzy evil feeling down inside my gut, especially that clanging at the end of the song like Mike said, maybe the sound of this song is a consequence of being on tour with slayer , ha!

    Anyways, the song sounds like its about people that rely on religion, and Randy is saying that there are plenty of people out there that make it just fine without religion controlling and holding together their lives.
