Inching nearer each and every moment feel the rhythm of our drums
Searching, seeking forward thinking, a dawning of mind that we create
A border breaking for the taking, words that remind us to awake

I don't need a bold commandment, I've got one of my own.
Stand alone

Let's watch Babylon fall, our captivity
Vices of the kingdom, exile in luxury

You'll hear the darkest voice say
Bow before, crawl beneath
Dance around my altar
If you grovel long enough
Someday I will let you be as pure

I don't need a bold commandment, I've got one of my own.
Stand alone

Let's watch Babylon fall, our captivity
Vices of the kingdom, exile in luxury

    General Commentactually straight from the words of nathan himself:

    America struggles to retain position in a losing battle..
    joins a war it did not start for obvious reasons.
    Weapons and fossil fuels the only commerce for a dying nation..
    Slowly the irony creeps into view for our leaders, arrogant and overconfident,
    That all these deaths were in vain,
    not because of a realization that greed is a fruitless tree,
    but of a realization that the battle has already been lost,
    lost over the course of countless years to sheer numbers
    and lack of attention to a quietly growing Red China.

    Let's watch Babylon fall, our captivity,
    Vices of the kingdom, exile in luxury..

    Telephone and computer upgrades,
    video game systems, and blaring television sets,
    all play a part in lulling us into submission.
    CNN is a capitalist culture's propaganda,
    and national perception is skewed indefinitely.

    Harbinger is about the multiple world power changeovers going on right now.

    General CommentThis song is intense.
    It sounds like maybe he's seeing it through the eyes of cyrus the great who supposably conquered babylon.
    Saying stand alone, and talking about watching babylon fall. Or maybe he is looking through the perspective of a Godly figure with this line..

    Dance around my altar
    If you grovel long enough
    Someday I will let you be as pure

    Or maybe he was just bored and writing.
    Idk. but either way THA owns.
