"Leica" as written by and Michael Keene....
I heard you call through our wall
Weaving your tale through our minds eye
A direct embodiment of your wanton faith
You command me as I'm unknowingly
Succumbing to your ways

Disgusting, yet so intriguing, I recant my beliefs
Accepting your false idols as my own, forsaking mine
I will be reborn and pure blood will line the land
I am just a fool, masked and anonymous

The final test lies just ahead
The swordsman have chosen me
I will die
I heard you call me from over the sea

I heard you call bringing me to this place
Once meek and on a perilous path
Now guided every step of the way
Light the fire and cast me in
Knowing the meaning of sacrifice

I will be the burning heart in the chest of the wicker man
I believe in the eternal life through sacrificing myself to you
I believe in the everlasting life
Achieving the death of a martyr for you

    General CommentThis one's kind of hard to figure out....I think it's simply about someone who has decided to become a follower of some sort of entity or cult. They've become a slave to some being through "hearing their call" and they begin a quest of some sort to be one with that being.

    They throw out all that they once believed and sacrifice everything for this one individual who has a lot of power.

    They consider themselves below this being and their "final test lies just ahead". They are chosen to die. They are guided to this being through this being and are fully aware of what they are doing and why. It's all simply about dying for something.

    General CommentI would say this is by far the best song on the album! It gets so fast and intense toward the end and you never want it to end!
    One night i was trippin on some shrooms, and about 2 hours in i put on my headphones and turned my ipod to this song and it just took ahold of me.
    I dont really need to say much about it's meaning, but this song is just too badass!

    General Commentwhere he says "i am just a fool" at about 2:05...
    the first time i heard this i could swear to god he said
    "I am darth vader."

    i think that might actually be what he says.

    jk.

    General CommentThe lead guitar-work in this song is jaw dropping!

    A lot of the riffs on "Leica" have an almost triumphant vibe. That's something missing from a lot of the Metal stuff today.
