"Legion" as written by and Joacim Anders/dronjak Cans....
The war still remains
No Kingdom on earth
There's only pure evil, indifference to birth

In the tombs of the dead
One man breeds alone
The unearthly warfare shadows the throne

Three temptations written down
The Lust of flesh, lust of the eye
Finally the pride of life

The Demon Twelve, the hell hounds
My name is Legion, for we are many spirits inside of one
To build a land of chaos, brought forth from the Abyss
My name is Legion, and we bring destruction and death

Possessing his soul
The curse of the damned
A tormented victim, to the bottom he's slammed

One man stands alone
Trapped, under a spell
Encounter your demons, send them to Hell

No temptations left to fend
Sanctified, Anti Christ
Casting shadows towards the cross

The Demon Twelve, the hell hounds
My name is Legion, for we are many spirits inside of one
To build a land of chaos, brought forth from the Abyss
My name is Legion, and we bring destruction and death

The Demon Twelve, the hell hounds
My name is Legion, for we are many spirits inside of one
To build a land of chaos, brought forth from the Abyss
My name is Legion, and we bring destruction and death

    My InterpretationIn case any of you aren't aware of this, Legion is a biblical character, in which 1000 spirits escape Hell/Abyss and possess a guy. When Jesus asks the possessed guy what his name was, the response was "My name is legion, for we are many."

    Bible stuff aside, I have no idea what the song means, but my guess is that "Legion" intends to create hell on earth.

    General CommentPossessing his soul
    The curse of the damned
    A tormented victim, to the bottom he's slammed

    To me this seems like the demons are coming up and possessing him solely to torment him

    One man stands alone
    Tripped, under a spell
    Encounter your demons, send them to Hell

    And this part is basically telling the guy to face the demons and send them back from whence they came.

    Lyric CorrectionOne man stands alone
    Tripped, under a spell
    Encounter your demons, send them to Hell

    Should be

    One man stands alone
    Trapped, under a spell
    Encounter your demons, send them to Hell


    I know it sounds like tripped, but trapped makes a whole lot more sense.
