It wasn't so long ago I remember time's where life was so cold
Everything was dark and still I thought I had a chance in life
The demons called my name, they dragged me inside the chambers of hell
No one could hear me, I bled tears of pain

Son, confront meâ?¦ The Road to Devastation
Kneel before meâ?¦ The Road to Devastation
Inhale, exhaleâ?¦ The Road to Devastation
This is my lifeâ?¦ The Road to Devastation

The sun would rise, the hope would die inside
Another day of misery as the clock turns to agony
Feel the sense of lost timeâ?¦
When everything falls to pieces and left with a glimpse of light

It wasn't so long ago I remember time's where life was so cold
Everything was dark and still I thought I had a chance in life
The demons called my name, they dragged me inside the chambers of hell
No one could hear me, I bled tears of pain

Son, confront meâ?¦ The Road to Devastation
Kneel before meâ?¦ The Road to Devastation
Inhale, exhaleâ?¦ The Road to Devastation
This is my lifeâ?¦ The Road to Devastation

    General Comment:This song sounds to me is about someone struggling with deep depression and their fight to survive with faith. Kataklysm are one of the best new additions to the death metal genre!

    General Comment:I agree with the deep depression meaning, but these guys aren't a new addition to the death metal genre. In the Arms of Devastation is their 8th album I believe.

    This was my first Kataklysm album and I have to say they kick extremely large asses. This is probably my fav song on it too. Great Vocals.
    KNEEL BEFORE ME!!!

    General Comment:In a certain point of vue I think this song could be about drugs, "the road of devastation" "inhale, exhale" "the demons called my name" or maybe is it just me that see drugs everywhere ;P
