Stand up, we'll be more than kings.
Show no mercy when the gates swing.
I've said it before but without accepting that my body
was the only thing keeping me from living.
I wouldn't even let the surgeon touch me.
Though facing death, i dined on flesh...
but now I live to fight out-numbered.
I live to fight out-numbered at the fire dawn to live in rebellious honor.
I'll stand, you'll see me over all of your fallen.
I'll be knee-deep, knee-deep in a sea of their organs.
Send me all of hell and I'll face them,
I'll face them one on one-thousand.
Stand up, we'll be more than kings.
Show no mercy when the gates swing.
Breathe deep the sea at your knees.
Breathe deep and show no mercy..
With blistering heat, the army now bursting through, blinds me
with a light not meant to empower but reigned to devour.
I'll face them one on one-thousand.
This kingdom's end is written, I'll take it one on one-thousand.
I'll stand, you'll see me over all of your fallen.
I'll be knee-deep, knee-deep in a sea of their organs.
Send me all of hell and I'll face them.
I'll face them one on one-thousand and yell,
"Is there no one else? Is there no one else left?"

    General CommentI have to respectfully disagree with your DellowMan, I don't think it's the anti-christ speaking.

    This is pretty straightforward I think. Instead of these words coming from the anti-christ, I think they are coming from a normal human. This person lived once to satisfy his flesh and do evil things right up until his end ("Though facing death, i dined on flesh..."), but somewhere along the way he realized the error of his ways and God turned him to the good side, and the good side is going to be outnumbered because there are always more unsaved humans than there are saved ("but now I live to fight out-numbered"). Also, it's pretty obvious that the guy speaking here is on the good side because he flat out says that he's fighting hell ("Send me all of hell and I'll face them").

    The rest of the song is pretty much about the battle that ensues. God's light empowers the "good guys", while Satan's light seeks to destroy ("with a light not meant to empower but reigned to devour"). The guy speaking is encouraged by the fact that hell's reign is coming to an end, and proof of it is written (in Revelation, which this album seems to be about).

    General CommentDoes anyone have a idea what the big message of this song? I think it is talking about the apocalypse and defeating the devil and hell but I'm not sure because I didn't think that humans fought in that battle according to the bible

    General CommentHa... I had to create an account just cause i think i know this one.

    Its about the Antichrist i think. i picture him before the battle of Armegedon. rallying his troops by telling them the lies that he believes: that they can overthrow God and Heaven.

    "Stand up, we'll be more than kings.
    Show no mercy when the gates swing."
    (waiting for the battle to start the antichrist/satan rallies his troops)
    "I've said it before but without accepting that my body
    was the only thing keeping me from living.
    I wouldn't even let the surgeon touch me.
    Though facing death, i dined on flesh..."
    (suggesting he didnt have a body and was waiting to be born, i think this describes the antichrist more than satan)

    General CommentI agree with surrendered.
    "my body was the only thing keeping me from living." Refers to the common idea in the Bible that we must die to self to truly live, to have God live in us. The line after refers to Satan being the Surgeon hoping to bring us back to "life" which is sin and non-belief.
    "Send me all of hell and I'll face them," Is the big clue it isn't about the anti-christ or Satan. Why would Satan undermind himself? He wouldn't. He is the great manipulator and so is smart enough to not attack himself.
    "I'll face them one on one-thousand." Is in reference to another common line in the Bible that we will be less in numbers in comparison to the "non-believers".
    "With blistering heat, the army now bursting through, blinds me with a light not meant to empower but reigned to devour." Satan is often said to be a devourer while God is said he will empower us.

    General Comment"This kingdom's end is written" refers to how The Anti-Christ's kingdom is destroyed as written in revelations

    General CommentI think of Psalm 3:6 where it says "I will not be afraid of ten thousands of people who have set themselves against me all around."

    Im guessing this bit is referring to Romans 8:13, it talks about death to the flesh and the body that is sinful

    General CommentI agree with Surrendered on this. It's not the anti-christ talking it's a normal human being who rejected God like all humans have done but he has turned around and started to follow God and fighting against the ways of this world. I think the chorus and the last line suggest that the person has victory.

    I think the important thing to remember is that we didn't win, Jesus did. We have this victory though Christ.
