Passing the empty house
I see the thing upon the Wall
Wooden sticks crossed together
And kneeling man talking to the effigy of steel...
God is Dead!!! Dead !!! Helleluyah!!!

Smell of burnt bodies
Slaughtered virgin lies dead without the face
Men staring at the skies
Singing lines and eating sand of waste...
God is Dead!!! Dead !!! Helleluyah!!!

Wandering the globe around
I saw no miracles nor wonders
Humanity so poisoned by their myths
Why none can see my wings?!
God is Dead!!! Dead !!! Helleluyah!!!

    General CommentCool song, Peter has a really strong voice. Vader deserves more attention since they are around snce 1983. Best polish metal band along with Behemoth.

    Song MeaningDon't quote me, but I believe this song is from the perspective of a dark angel, or even Lucifer himself, walking across the land witnessing their goals of annihilating religion.

    The first verse shows the angel passing a house and describing a Crucifix as if it's a foreign object no one's heard of (which they haven't, since God is dead remember?) But as he passes the old, presumably a church i'm guessing, he notices a disciple to the destroyed religion committing suicide "And kneeling man talking to the effigy of steel.."

    The second verse shows more destruction against everything considered holy, such as virgins, and the last line could be in reference to a Catholic communion or Mormon sacrament... Something to that effect

    And the third is where I came up with my angel theory. He/she/it says that they have been traveling the world disproving the religious myths being spread like poison among humanity

    Basically, it's describing a world where religion was violently eradicated
