"Safeguard Paradise" as written by Yves Florent Robert Huts, Coen J. Janssen, Markus H J Mark Jansen, Yves Florent Robert Huts, Coen J. Janssen and Markus H J Mark Jansen....
Memories that fade away
Have not left their mark
But to live on every single day in many different ways

It's the truth between his cunning lies
That hands him his (acho) suspicious alibis
Persuading with your forms will never be the way to our destiny

Suddenly we've lost the forms
To close our cursed wombs
No one seems to realize that (wolves) are in disguise

Your engine was so strong
But the road was just too long
Hope is not the end
So never lose the faith

As long as we can say
They can never take away
Our freedom the most precious thing we've ever had
The reward from the blood we've ever shed

His quest for higher truth
Life of eternal youth has just begun
In spite your way along the road
Many virgins wait for him to come
Persuading with your forms will never be the way to our destiny
Our destiny

    General CommentThis song is about a someone who's been a victim of a suicide action of a fundamentalist. Its a protest song and dedicated to Theo van Gogh(he's a dutch television/film maker) who's been murdered in 2004 by a fundamentalist because of his ideas. And about our freedom, that it is in danger en if we do something or not.

    My InterpretationAt first, I didn't know what the hell this song was about. It seemed to be a sad ballade of some sort...

    But then I noticed these lyrics ''Many virgins wait for him to come''. And after that, everything came into place. I explain now:

    This song is about a suicide bomber, most likely a muslim extremist. I don't know very much about Islam, but I know that suicide bombers are being promised a place in paradise with seven virgins for eternity if he kills enemies of Islam. Just read through the lyrics with that interpetarion in mind, you'll see it fits pretty good.

    ''No one seems to realise that wolves are in disguise''

    Anyway, it's a lovely song with a sad and heavy mood.

    General CommentI know this is probably too late but the line:

    It’s the truth between his cunning lips

    "lips" is actually supposed to be "lies" (that's what i'm hearing so idk)

    anyways...love this song has a sort of movie soundtrack-esque tone to it

    General CommentI can't figure out what the hell this song is about. Persuading with force, virgins... maybe it's about rape, but then there's the search for higher truth, and I'm totally confused. Someone help... any ideas?

    General CommentThe song is talking about religion. Someone is looking for the "higher truth" and the "virgins" to me are the nuns. The whole album is about a guy who denies religion.

    General CommentThis song is gorgeous! It's really fun to sing along with, especially cause of how it goes from high to low notes.

    I think it, like most of the album, is about being conflicted between two different things. Or losing belief in something.

    and typo! 'cunning lips' is really 'cunning lies' *I have the album booklet right here. lol*
