Pearls look best when soiled in cream and mud
Pretty things are there to be abused
Look their best when skinned and flayed alive
All those perfect perfect teeth removed
You said... A hole, that's what you is
You said... A figment of you expectations
What is heaven without Sabbath? (I say)
Oh my children can't sleep
Through the night
Bodies burnt
Hair is singed, kissing flame
Healing hands sweat and oil never mix
The host and I sleep deprived and deranged
You said... Don't blame him for all the slaughter he brings
You said... It's not his fault, even jesus needs to sleep
I say

    My InterpretationI heard something at the start about "the sound of industry, machines" or something. Is that the 'subliminal message'? XD

    General Commenthaha, this kind of makes me think of the sick farming industry

    perhaps human farming? ;D

    General CommentThere are words at the beginning, too.

    "The evil in these paws starts only when sung
    Innocent, lifeless, hides the black intent
    The panic of knowing you cannot run
    My children cannot sleep
    through the constant alarms of industry and machines
    and constant toil of men...
    The host and I are going insane"

    Zoog is saying stuff in the background during the song as well, but I can't make it out.
