I have made you in my likeness
And I will make you the keeper of my garden world
If you honor me in kind, I'll be grateful, but be warned
I'm a jealous God
Who placed the demons in hell
And the angels in heaven
At my side

So set me free, I'll grant your hearts desire
And I will share the secrets of the grand design
Give me daughters, send me sons and I'll make them all chosen ones
I will send them out to die
To meet the angels of death
With no tears, no regrets
I was cast down from the heights
My blood must pay for the debt
That was made when they left
Because of me

And if they taste the blood we'll let them drink
And if they taste the flesh we'll let them eat
And if one has to be forgiven then we'll pardon all of them
And if they raze our walls we'll let them in
And if they raise their swords we'll let them hit
And if one has to be forgiven then
We'll love them

Let me lead you to the garden world
I will place you at the right of my father's hand
I was tempted in the wild I crossed from start until end of time
I emerged the sacred lamb
Whose blood must pay for the debt
That was made when they left
As I ascend into the sky I'll free the angels from hell
And place them in heaven
At my side

    My InterpretationThis is obviously a summed up version of the Christian gospel from God's perspective. Excellent song.

    General CommentI'm pretty sure the second time through the fifth verse should be:

    and if they raze our walls we'll let them in
    and if they raise their swords we'll let them win
    and if one has to be forgiven then
    we'll love them

    This song is so killer. I'm happy to hear Trail of Dead is back.

    General CommentConrad Keely once said:

    "Isis Unveiled is a heady topic. It’s a summary of the whole Biblical story from an agnostic Christian point of view but also from the point of view of an early Christian sect that believed there were two great Gods in the Bible. There was the Old Testament God and then there was the God of Christ who overthrew the Old Testament God, which I guess was their way of explaining why there was such a difference in the way that God was portrayed in both. It was difficult to come up with lyrics for that because the music was so intense, they had to be appropriately apoplectic."

    And I once said:

    "God does not exist."
