"The Morningstar" as written by Andreas Hindenaes, Johan Ericson, Anders Jacobsson and Magnus Bergstroem....
(I am the Light that Leads to Darkness)
(Lyrics by Anders Jacobsson)

"I've cried a river for you to swim
To let you know the state we're in.
I've dreamt a vision for you to see He's dreamt a vision for us to see,
That the night is the only worthy key that night is the worthy keyâ?¦
(and the sound of silent cries
Is heard throughout the skies".


I have seen Heaven's sleep, We have felt Heaven's sleep,
And I've watched the angels weep, our God hath made us weep
They are slaves of fear and pain
(that is ruled by a god insane).
I know that the night will save us all O Lucifer, O Morningstarâ?¦
As long we praise the dragons call. how we praise your ancient fallâ?¦


Eternal seems the time,
But the only true love will remain,
And darkness shall rise up to Heaven
To embrace the last, final prayer...
Cause the grace of His word once spoken
Is now shattered by a promise broken.


"So curse the tyrant, curse the light,
For we are free here in the (endless) night. How free we could be in the nightâ?¦
So embrace the sorrow, kiss the tearsâ?¦
Follow the wind to erase your fears, Follow the wind, follow the signâ?¦
For the fires burn bright, the fires of blue,
And in the end it will burn in all of you."


The war will come,
Apocalyptic storms of a tortured silence
As God oppresses His last, final soulâ?¦
And eternal seems the time,
But the only true love will remain,
And darkness shall rise up to Heaven
To embrace the last, final prayerâ?¦
So deny God's light and His words spokenâ?¦
We regain Heaven and crush His skull wide open!


"I've cried a river for you to swim,
To let you know the state we're in.
I've sent a message throughout the stars, He's sent a message throughout the stars,
For His kingdom is full of scars. God's kingdom is full of scars.
I am Lucifer, the angel of light He is Lucifer, O Luciferâ?¦
Come with me and love the night!


And legions of angels out from Heav'n flyâ?¦
Oh, how they soar above the mountains high!


I am the Lightâ?¦
That Leads to Darkness!
I am the Nightâ?¦
Behold Pandemonium!" Behold Pandemonium

    General CommentThis song is about the struggle of Lucifer and God and how, like Surt in Norse Mythology that licks the different planes in flames, the Devil takes over heaven and kills God: "So deny God's light and His words spoken...We regain Heaven and crush His skull wide open!" When it means "The Tyrant" I think it means from the perspective of Satan in terms of his nemesis God.

    "I've cried a river for you to swim to let you know the state we're in.
    I've dreamt a vision for you to see He's dreamt a vision for us to see,
    that the night is the only worthy key that night is the worthy key...

    Also I think the angels in this, while are servants of God, they see the actions of what's about to happen.

    "I've cried a river for you to swim,
    to let you know the state we're in.
    I've sent a message throughout the stars,
    He's sent a message throughout the stars,
    for His kingdom is full of scars.
    God's kingdom is full of scars.
    (and the sound of silent cries is heard throughout the skies)"

    ^^^This is the plea sent throughout the universe to make it apparent to anyone listening that God is truly dead and the cosmos is beyond help or retribution. So the only thing left for the angels to do is cry and reflect on what God was.
