This is not a riddle but it's meant to entertain.
I'll be your loyal Apostle,
just send me in to take the blame.
Well what would you expect to say?
It never mattered anyway
There'll be a site (sight)
and an invisible light shown down on them and took them in
There'll be a time when, Maybe tonight temptations win And I give in.
This is not a puzzle or mainframe
But it's meant to strengthen your faith
And each time the night falls upon us
We always end up the same,
Were we not born into original sin?
What you ask for is what you get
and what you were given
So fold your hands and get down on your knees

    General CommentRack, you close but i think its aimed more towards God. I think what he is saying is something like he is asking God "how we can be held responsible for our sin if thats the way YOU designed us" (last 4 lines). Hes frustrated

    General Commentthisme, if I had to guess, Id say he may be Agnostic, because I feel like... he believes in something, just not from the traditional point of view. He's not denying God, it's almost like hes trying to figure it out while simultaneously turn away from strict teachings. But this is just me, I have no idea.

    This song is really my favorite on the Album, I love the line fold your hands and get down on your knees, when he yells it and the song comes to a climax it just sounds angry, like hes fed up with the submission religion entails. To an invisible light, which is a great line, because light itself is... it is nothing. It's simply a wave spectrum that breaks down into colors and absences of colors, an invisible light is nothing more than darkness, the light of religion to clarify and lead is invisible, its not there... but some people can feel it. Enlightened or not, some people know it to exist. I don't know what this song is about but thats what it means to me anyway

    General CommentI think this song is about religion and more importanly Anthony's father. The line about original sin, i think refers to passing on the sins of the father. I think Anthony is rejecting this notion and saying i'm not responsible for what those that have passed before me have done. Determining, I am responsible for my own lot and that's it.

    General Commentdude, this song barely has any comments!! this one stands out to me because of the unique sound during the chorus and stuff. this is one of those songs where i find myself paying more attention to the music than to the vocals. dunno if that's a bad thing...

    General CommentOk I have to say every one who has lost one dear to them and use the intoxication as a pain releaver should really tune in to this jam. I see death everyday news,streets its out here but for the loved ones that have passed don't have to deal with this unfit lifestyle. There "safe in the invisable light" which brings me to the meaning at the start he is giving u reason to use the song while you drowin the pain in intoxication " temptation wins and I give in" towards the second verse he is giving a new meaning to using the song "strengthen your faith" after the night is through will you have the will to push another day. But at the end of the night instead give into your praying temptation "so fold your hands and get on your knees"

    General Commentisn't the original sin referring to eve's defiance of god? like when she took the apple off the tree and ate it for knowledge? so he's basically paralleling the temptation of eve and his own temptation. hope it helps :D!

    General Commentok i belive this song is about sex... giving into temptations .. "its meant to strengthen your faith, and each time nite falls upon us, we always end up the same" .. this cleary is talking about sexual romance. "were we not born into orginal sin" they are saying that everyone is born into sin so alittle sex aint gonnna hurt ... there songs arent always bout god or some hard core religious shit.
