our souls carved in stone
withstand the test of time
testify the ancient ways
when all good will turn bad thy angels will fall

invade the putrid masses
intelligence to stupidity
increase the pressure within
no return from isolation
no chance to recuporate
we are lost in deceipt

years of enlightment for decades in darkness
we drown in time... behold the signs!

the storm arrives, we pray to die
forgotten and betrayed
life comes in full circle
you can't escape what is meant to be
without proving your true identity

invade the putrid masses
intelligence to stupidity
increase the pressure within
no return from isolation
no chance to recuporate
we are lost in deceipt

years of enlightment for decades in darkness
we drown in time... behold the signs!

    General CommentOk, enlightenment already sets the main topic of this song, i think. It seems it's a critique of the idea that humans should think for themselves, that they are supposed to follow their own logic and mind instead of blindly following a leader, be it religious or mundane.

    Their critique describes the decades in darkness, that in reality are still there, despite the ideas of enlightenment being generally appreciated. I'm not sure about the exact meaning, but they could express that humans aren't meant to think, their "souls [are] carved in stone", "you can't escape what is meant to be". On the other hand, there's also talk of "invading the putrid masses", where here i'm not sure if "intelligense to stupidity" is supposed to mean that intelligence is becoming stupidity, or if intelligence should be used to enlighten the stupidity. The decision to this distinction might be the interpretation of this song.
