Plans of man done in the darkness

Sleight of hand will be the process

Enemies created from ghosts

To lure the fools into hunting shadows



The target centuries old

Lust for power and control

Bow down and kiss the ring

Consume Devour Repeat



Giants of steel brought down to the earth

With a word from the mouth of a man

Swallowed up in the undertow

Where snarling fangs feast on the brave



My brother, my sister, my father, my son



The secrets buried beneath

In the wreckage where it sleeps

As your rats haul away

Evidence of a dark new day

    Song Meaningi'm no good at interpretations, but to me it sounds like it's about sin overtaking people, or the Devil corrupting good people.

    General CommentThis song remind anyone else of Lord of the Rings? Specifically the line "...The target centuries old

    Lust for power and control

    Bow down and kiss the ring..."

    Probably has nothing to do with the actual meaning, but it's what crosses my mind every time I listen to the song.
