"Monsters Of The Deep" as written by Michael Spreitzer, Jeffrey Kendrick, John Boecklin, Jon Miller and Bradley Dez Fafara....
Is there a promised land
Or am I on the journey going to nowhere?
Are the streets paved with gold
Or am I slipping on the mold
That slowly grows there?

Every man has his conscience
Sanity left along the way
Carried in this vessel
Setting forth together now
Out towards the monsters of the deep

Set your sights on rocky shores
You just might run aground on the reef
Journey's in the destination, mention fear
You're falling on deaf ears

Every man has his conscience
Sanity left along the way
Carried in this vessel
Setting forth together now
Out towards the monsters of the deep

Left along the way
Carried in this vessel
Setting forth together now
Out towards the monsters of the deep
Monsters of the deep, oh

    General CommentDez was raised a catholic, but read his lyrics and it becomes painfully apparent that he has turned from that path:
    "Is there a promised land?
    Or am I on the journey going to nowhere?
    Are the streets paved with gold?
    Or am I slipping on the mold that slowly grows there?"
    -Hes questioning his faith..

    The songs general meaning however is that he seems to feel that 'god' has equally turned his back on him as he had to 'god', and that all the promises made were simply lies... The entire album seems to be a possible medium by which he describes the terms of his beliefs on religion, namely christianity

    General CommentApparently this song has to do with sailing to a promised land, such as an after life and possibly questioning its existence.

    General Commentliving life, the monsters are obstacles, really just looking forward in life knowing there will be hard times, but you will be rewarded. But i dont think dez is christian or believes in god so im probably wrong.

    General Commenti think he may be saying something about HP Lovecraft and the cthulhu. what with monsters of the deep and getting caught on a reef which is in a story of lovecrafts. Also he talks of sanity and conscience and these play a role in the novels.
