"Order Of The Rose" as written by and Jon Schaffer....
Passed down through centuries
The order lives and feeds upon them
A global fraternity
Philanthropy, tactical deception
In plain sight throughout all time
Contriving human decline
Instilling those who lead
Seizing opportunities

Rise of setian evocation
And the order thrives
So the day arrive of his birth
Rise of setian evocation
And the order lives for the day
Of man's coming curse

Create divisive creeds
Embrace the fact man needs religion
Prophets, saviors and priests
All convinced they have the answers
The truth is they'll never know
Behind faith they'll hide and hope
We'll build them a martyr son
Sacrificial lamb, the holy one

Rise of setian evocation
And the order thrives
So the day arrive of his birth
Rise of setian evocation
And the order lives for the day
Of man's coming curse

The object of their divide
So convinced their way is right
The narrow view of all mankind
In the name of god they will divide

    General CommentThis is meant to evoke the Rosicrucians, a real-world mystery order like the Bavarian Illuminati or the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn. Their "secret history" supposedly traces them back to the secret lore of ancient Egypt (which fits in with the Egyptian theme of the Setians), but also into various mid-Asian mountain ranges like in Tibet, where their Ascended Masters went into hiding -- corresponding to the hiding places of the "ten thousand" Setians and their leaders. In other words, the Rosicrucians (also known as the "Order of the Rose and the Cross") are the Setians' tool for manipulating humanity from the shadows, especially given that the Setians have established human religions to fracture humanity and the Rosicrucians portray themselves as a Christian mystery order (hence the "...and the Cross").

    General Comment"Framing Armageddon: Something Wicked Part 1 tells the story of the Setians, who were the original inhabitants of Earth, and are directly descended from the "Great Architect". They are said to have nearly omniscient knowledge. Humans, who have developed space travel, invade Earth in a bid for "ultimate power and ultimate knowledge", killing all but ten thousand Setians (Invasion, Motivation of Man, Setian Massacre).

    The remaining ten thousand go into hiding in the mountains in the east (A charge to keep). The Setian High Council, which consists of the twelve Elders and the High Priest, make a plan to get revenge on the invading human race (Reflections, Ten Thousand Strong, Order of the Rose). They plan to initiate "The Clouding", which involves brainwashing all the humans and making them forget their origins (Cataclysm, The Clouding). Once completed, the Setians will manipulate history by creating religions--Christianity, Islam, Judaism, etc.,--to further divide the humans (Infiltrate and Assimilate, Retribution Through the Ages, The Domino Decree, Framing Armageddon). Once human kind is sufficiently divided, after ten thousand years, the Setians will await, as the prophecy told millennia ago, the birth of the Antichrist, Set Abominae (When Stars Collide, The Awakening). Set Abominae will destroy all of the human race and execute the revenge the Setians have long awaited.

    Framing Armageddon tells the story from the prophecy to the events right before the birth of Set Abominae." - wiki
