"Shoulder of Your God" as written by David Randall Blythe, Mark Morton, Will Adler, John Campbell and Chris Adler....
Death lies eternal.
A heathen rapture consumes the light.
Impaled on its axis,
The world around me lays down to die.

Immaculate contraception.
The massive beating,
Apocalyptic conception,
Planted, its seething reprobates.

Unremitting desolation.
There is no reprieve.
The end goes (????)

The angel's eyes are gouged with tragedy.
The end goes (????)
The fallen host endure mortality.
The end goes...

A black pasture,
devoid of the shepherd,
where you choose to dwell.

Venomous concepts,
Catalyst of damnation.
Unease filtered through chemical haze.
(You're so far gone.)

Sole purveyor of your own unrest.
Go cry on the shoulder of your God.
(You're so far gone.)
The catalyst of damnation.

A lone voice in the void,
There is no reprieve.
The end goes (????)

No answer will be found to the endless why.
The end goes (????)
Deeds done in darkness will always come to light.
The end goes.

A black pasture,
devoid of the shepherd,
where you choose to dwell.

Venomous concepts,
Catalyst of damnation.
Unease filtered through chemical haze.
(You're so far gone.)

Sole purveyor of your own unrest.
Go cry on the shoulder of your God.
(You're so far gone.)
The catalyst of damnation.

The nephlim walk the earth again.
Primordial chaos resurrected.
The divine narcotic strung-out seraphim.
The catalyst, catalyst of damnation.

In the code of life, a spiral death, a rattle from within.
The healing sties, no answers lie in a world without end.

Venomous concepts,
Catalyst of damnation.
Unease filtered through chemical haze.
(You're so far gone.)

Sole purveyor of your own unrest.
Go cry on the shoulder of your god.
(You're so far gone.)
The catalyst of damnation.

    General CommentI think this song is about a woman who was using "Immaculate contraception" to avoid pregnancy (Condoms, pill, IUD etc), but she ended up getting pregnant anyways (she is referenced as a host). She viewed this as the end of everything "Apocalyptic conception", and sped up her unborn childs damnation through chemical means "Venomous concepts, Catalyst of damnation. Unease filtered through chemical haze." (drugs due to the later reference "The divine narcotic strung-out seraphim"). The child was born despite her efforts "The nephlim walk the earth again", but due to her drug use while pregnant, her child was jacked up in some way (nephlim has both been referenced as a child of an angel, and as disfigured children of angels). I think what LOG is trying to say to her, is that you are the reason for your own unrest and tragedy, and you can cry on the shoulder of your God, because our shoulders will not be there because we won't feel sorry for something that was your fault.

    Song MeaningThis song is about the earth and the overall effect of man upon it. Blythe refers to homo sapiens as the "apocalyptic conception" taking in the ideals of Christianity and monotheistic views of one omnipotent god. He is saying man is God's most hideous creature. Even the angel's eye are not safe from the tragedies that we commit. The black pasture would be earth without it's "shepherd" to guide it. He goes on to chemical use in society to ease all our stresses. No doubt a reference to pharm drugs, booze, and drugs. He notes that we create our own kind of global agitation that leads people to houses of prayer, which have unfortunately no answer. We cry on the shoulder of god for answers to our own doing.
