If you've never heard before
There was once a time
When only God had fire
The moon and stars and nothing more
To lead you through the night

If there's a Hell and Satan had a daughter
He must have sent her here to hide the flame
We're still afraid
Must be he taught her so well
We've seen some light
So why's it all the same

Chorus:
Superstition - go away
We wear the mark
Fear

There's a corner of the mind
With a door that always
Opens up at sundown
And what's inside is to remind you
To hide from eyes that shine

We ran until we found we had the power
Illuminate the world and make it burn
We're still afraid
Must be that door in your brain
You've seen some light
And you pray it will return

Chorus

If there's a Hell and Satan sent his daughter
She must have gotten lost
And can't go home
We're still afraid
And he can't find her again
We've seen some light
But it will always be the same

Chorus:
Evilution go away
We still share the mark
Fear

    Song MeaningI remember an Occult Rosicrucian Book that I read once. It spoke about the value of the fire, and how primitive cavemen men were afraid of the night until the fire came. The Book said after the fire came the nights were not the same, and men could think because they were not slaves of fear anymore, giving a big start to civilizations.
    There are also references about the fire and a god from the Greek mythology who stole the fire from the gods in order to give it to humans, this song is using this Occult notion, and a metaphor: Satan's "daughter = energy" in order to represent that despite all the technological progress our civilization has had over the centuries, we are not afraid anymore from the same things (for example; wild animals), but we are afraid instead of a Thermonuclear War World III, or a Chernobyl-like Disaster, or stuff that can only come out of the Technological development.
    This song comes right after "Atom and Evil", and I think that supports this view. In the past RJD has written songs like "Children of the Sea" where he strongly criticized the Industrial Revolution: "We made the demon dance, we threw away the key and locked the door". "Computer God", is another example of how skeptic can RJD be about Technology.

    General Commenti think the song is about being afraid of the unknown. that's why he's saying "superstition go away". there is no need to be afraid of the unknown but still we are. Satan's daughter might be fear itself.
