Have I not
Been too long in your shadows of invention and creation?
As I rightfully behold the flesh
Fear of the conscious mind will have you facing away

My word and world holds ground and is real
Your world is like floods of poisoned water
A language spoken with spit from different tongues

It all seems like an eternity
This battle between us two
"Good and evil"
Me and you

Time has come to step up
And take back what you took from me

My word and world holds ground and is real
Your world is like floods of poisoned water
A language spoken with spit from different tongues
You can never corrupt me again

Your world is like floods of poisoned water
A language spoken with spit from different tongues
You can never corrupt me again

I protect every man guilty of sin
The ultimate sin being me
The vapour from the plague
That infested my mind, body and soul
Obscured my view from wisdom
The mist that had me wonder in resentment cleared
And troubles me no more

    General Commenti of the opinion that the shagrath is talking from the viewpoint of lucifer the fallen. "have i not been too long in your shadows of invention and creation" this seems to me that it is lucifer speaking as a bitter fallen angtel? has he not endured enough torment yet? he is saying that christ lies while lucifer holds truth. the line " good and evile me and u"
    "you can never corrupt me again" and " i protect everyman guilt of sin the ultimate sin being me" seems to correlate my theory. any thoughts?

    General CommentSounds like it follows the theme/story of the album. The writer is saying that Christianity has held Satanism down for too long and it's time to make up for "lost ground" so to speak. It's fundamentally about being free from the "lies, corruption, poison" used by Christianity to control him.

    General CommentYou are totally right cruiserfun! Also we can understand this ICS VORTEX talks to the kross as "your world is like floods of poisoned water..." in the video-clip. And the words "you can never corrupt me again" best describe the meaning...

    I tried doing the 'double voice' thing, but probably that's only a double recording.

    General CommentI am of the opinion that this song is about satanism being the major religion in place of christianity. Sort of like a reversal of roles.

    General CommentThis song is about God and Satan fighting...

    It all seems like an eternity
    This battle between us two
    "Good and evil"
    Me and you

    It is referring to Satan when it says..

    The ultimate sin being me

    And referring to demons when it says..

    I protect every man guilty of sin

    And as it appears, God is insulting Satan when it says..

    My word and world holds ground and is real
    Your world is like floods of poisoned water
    A language spoken with spit from different tongues
    You can never corrupt me again

    In conclusion, Satan feels he needs to step up and get even with God

    Time has come to step up
    And take back what you took from me

    My InterpretationHave I not
    Been too long in your shadows of invention and creation?
    As I rightfully behold the flesh
    Fear of the conscious mind will have you facing away [Could be Satan, but could also be humans (God's children) believing in Satan or wanting freedom from religious scrutiny]

    My word and world holds ground and is real [Athiests? We believe in what we see,feel, hear...]
    Your world is like floods of poisoned water [Could be referring to athiests, particularly in the 'dark ages', where religion was rampant and any scientific advancement could result in death. God's world is not as "good", when all the pain and suffering (and idiocy) to get there is recognized.]
    A language spoken with spit from different tongues [Many gods, remember. Same principles, really -> no to advancement. Hence, the spit from different tongues. Could also be referring to the masses following different faiths, no doubt advocating ]

    It all seems like an eternity
    This battle between us two [ Religion, as weird as it can be, has been around for centuries. There's always been athiests.]
    "Good and evil"
    Me and you [Is questionable, what "good" really is, let alone "evil". Maybe referring to people yet again. We, like god would be, are not strictly 'good' or 'evil' ]

    Time has come to step up
    And take back what you took from me [Take back our (people, not satan or god) freedom from other's idiocy and blind faith, as well as their ultimate greed.]

    some ideas, not all. My interpretation, I could be completely wrong.
    Love the song, though. Lyrics are really good.
