God-like perfection, reflect in these eyes
Reaching for my blades with stars on high
Tempt the betrayers, through twilight I fall
In the flame and I curse you all

There's no turning back
Falling deep into the sweep
Collapsing back

Fly with me forever higher
And with these wings, we'll set the world on fire
Fly with me through scorching skies
You and I, the lie of lies

I'm the master of illusion, minister of sin
Two-faced snake, wicked shedding skin
I will forsake you, destroy and unmake you
With all my might, I will take you down

There's no turning back
Falling deep within the sweep
Collapsing back

Fly with me forever higher
And with these wings, we'll set the world on fire
Fly with me through scorching skies
You and I, the lie of lies

Don't leave me, you need me
Only I know the way

Fly with me forever higher
And with these wings, we'll set the world on fire
Fly with me through scorching skies
You and I (The lie of lies)
Lie of lies

    General CommentI am pretty sure that the lyrics in the small verse are "Only I know the way" instead of "only along the way"; this album has something to do with Milton's paradise lost, and Satan is the only one that knows the way out of hell in the epic poem.

    General CommentDude, where is Allen in this entire album? He's not really doing anything soulful. It's definitely Sym X but not the energetic, soulful, prog metalers I know. Kind of a letdown.

    General CommentThis lyric is full of errors by the submitter.

    Anyway, the song is about Lucifer rebelling against God and taking the rebel angels with him a la Milton's Paradise Lost.

    General CommentThis song describes the first two books of Milton's epic poem Paradise Lost. Here's a synopsis of them.

    Book I: In a long, twisting opening sentence mirroring the epic poetry of the Ancient Greeks, the poet invokes the "Heavenly Muse" (the Holy Spirit) and states his theme, the Fall of Man, and his aim, to "justify the ways of God to men."[1] Satan, Beelzebub, and the other rebel angels are described as lying on a lake of fire, from which Satan rises up to claim hell as his own domain and delivers a rousing speech to his followers ("Better to reign in hell, than serve in heav'n"). The logic of Satan (Satanic Logic) is introduced by: "The mind is its own place, and in itself, can make a Heaven of Hell, a Hell of Heaven."
    Book II: Satan and the rebel angels debate whether or not to wage another war on Heaven, and Beelzebub tells them of a new world being built, which is to be the home of Man. Satan decides to visit this new world, passes through the Gates of Hell, past the sentries Sin and Death, and journeys through the realm of Chaos. Here, Satan is described as having given birth to Sin with a burst of flame from his forehead, before he began open warfare with God–as Athena was born from the head of Zeus.
