Endless hours
I spent kneeling down
To my own creation

Looking up to your sky
Embracing my
Own imagination...
...Imagination

When gods fall
Charmed by a human
Calling a name
That never should be told
Trapped in a true heart
Opened by love
Caught by the spirit
They self unfold

Heaven's doors
Suddenly opened up
And set you free

Your divine step
Touched mortal ground
Inspiring eternal dreams
Your secret dreams

When gods fall
Charmed by a human
Calling a name
That never should be told
Trapped in a true heart
Opened by love
Caught by the spirit
They self unfold

    Song MeaningThis song presents multiple theories about religious traditions as well as the divine's relationship with man.

    The first stanza is a critique of idol worship. The lyricist asserts that one spends hours bowing down and worshiping a creation of the worshiper. The second stanza follows this theme with the devotee's imagination is the source of spirituality in the sky.

    The chorus and material afterwards complicates the meaning significantly. Interestingly, the lyricist does not deny the divine, but rather, describes the corruption of divinity with human conceptions. "Your divine step touched mortal ground, inspiring eternal dreams." The chorus makes more sense after this lyric. The fall of gods is when humanity attempts to imagine or conceive the divine. The gods do not literally fall, but rather become less sacred now that they're on mortal grounds. The lyricist states that the names of the divine shouldn't have been called. This contact with the divine is semi-negative in that the lyricist believes that the relationship is corruptible. The "true heart," as I interpret it, is the believer who has contained the divine within their religious beliefs. While the believer has pure intentions, the spirit (the gods perhaps) is contained and limited within the conceptions of the human mind.
