Go for it
Bow to the supremacy
Go for it at last

You do believe, so I can say
That you are owned by me

Go for it
Bow to the supremacy
Go for it at last

You do believe, so let us pray
For all those fools that be

Fool
Dance with me again
I am your destiny
Mark my words, don't you ever disagree

Fool
Kneel for me again
I am your agony
Walk my way, I will never set you free

Kneel for me unknowing fool
Bow to the supremacy
Kneel for me unworthy pig
Die for the divinity

Go for it
Bow to the supremacy
Go for it at last

You do believe, so you display
All that we want to see

Fool
Dance with me again
I am your destiny
Mark my words, don't you ever disagree

Fool
Kneel for me again
I am your agony
Walk my way, I will never set you free

Go for it
Just do it
Walk my way just to serve me

Go for it
Just do it
Kneel for me and obey me

A humble genuflection for the onrushing ascendancy
Not able to turn back anymore

Bow to me
Bow to the supremacy

Kneel for me
Die for the divinity

Bow to me
Go for it
Just do it
Die for the divinity

Believing is the cure
Religion is like opium
You'd better feed them all
Before they start eating you

Et fictum fit factum

Ne timeas obscurum
I'd autem cognoscas

Ne timeas obscurum
Primum I'd cognosce
Deinde iudica
Post iudicandum demum age

[x2]
Fool
Dance with me again
I am your destiny
Mark my words, don't you ever disagree

Fool
Kneel for me again
I am your agony
Walk my way, I will never set you free

[x4]
Go for it
Just do it

    General CommentI think it's about the god of the three major religions (Christianity, Islam, Judaism). It's about his arrogance and how he demands that we worship him and kneel to him. He sees us only as slaves and servants, and out only purpose is to bow to him. He'll never set us free or release us from this, since refusing him means eternal punishment, and bowing to his wishes still means that you'll be doing it forever.

    General Commenti dont like that the song is called fools of damnation and that it starts with ezan,something thats holy in my religion. i love epica and have all their albums,but this is the only song i never listened,to the end. i just dont want to. none of us know what the real meaning is,but the title says something too :/

    General CommentDamn, this song. It's so fun to sing along to although the meaning is kinda odd in my mind. I think it's about people who worship a person and the person is treating those people like slaves

    Fool
    Dance with me again
    I am your destiny
    Mark my words, don't you ever disagree

    Fool
    Kneel for me again
    I am your agony
    Walk my way, I will never set you free
    This seems like the ruler's point of view, saying they won't ever let them out of what they are tangled in.

    Believing is the cure
    Religion is like opium
    You'd better feed them all
    Before they start eating you
    These are the people trying to escape perhaps?

    Either way,this song is definitely one of my faves off The Divine Conspiracy. The chorus is just whoa. Just another beautiful song from Epica.

    General CommentI really like the contrast in this song... the arabic sounds and a woman who reigns a man in stead of men dominating women.
    Again a song about organized religion.

    "Et fictum fit factum" = A lie can become a truth
    That's so true in my opinion.
    The books are brainwashing.

    General CommentMy friends forced me to give them this song haha, just so that they could make up a belly dancing routine.

    I think that the fact that in a world overrun by men, women have the most power. Its not about the influence of the type of music, it explains that religion is feeble and causes the destruction of humanity itself, and that they will look to a figure, be it man or woman, and do what they say. [uhmmmm crusades??? anyone??] and not to mention the fact that it is 100% fact that women control the world. hate to say it [me being a guy and all] but its true. " Bow down to the supremacy" The supremacy is the form of religion, as well as world politics. I mean seriously, North Korea is having its own occult issues. You have a relentless dictator, and everyone "bows down" to him.

    General Commentok, i dont know who wrote this song but it could have been a man probably, so it doesnt mean that because a woman is singing the song it is about a woman ruling the world. In Nightwish the songs are wrote by a man but they are sung by a woman, anywayz i do think this song is about Islam, maybe all religions in general, people who are blind are "fools" and they are blinded by their fate while the "supremacy" is feeding on them. it means religion most of the time is a falacy it is a weapon against humanity.

    General CommentIs this song insulting God or smthn, or is it criticizing ppl who are at head of institutional religion and use it to dominate ppl? And if its abt how bad institutional religion is, why does it start with the Muslim "Azan"?
