"Nephilim" as written by and Jonas Petter Renkse Anders Nystrom....
By a black road
Giving a brief smile
Something's on the way
Forgotten for a while
And you try to speak this
Without a voice down by a black road
We try to forget and try to make it through

Someday we'll go
Further from this right into the bliss
Some night we'll try
To leave this place for another

They keep pushing me
So far from every chance
Makes it so much harder
For me to carry on
So I try to speak this
Without a thought down by a black road
We try to forget and try to make it through

    Song MeaningI really like this song. Nephilim means "fallen ones", so I think of the fallen angel Lucifer (also known as Satan).

    "Loving mother
    He has come
    To take your son"...

    it's possible this could be referring to the Virgin Mary and Jesus, since Jesus is Satan's enemy, after all.

    "Loving mother" could also be our world, "Mother" Earth, and how the devil is out to get as many people to worship him as he can.

    "And when morals will decline
    God of ruin
    Will come to you "

    When the people decide to turn away from Satan and serve God, he becomes angry and stops at nothing to get them to backslide.

    Anyways, just my opinion. In the end, it's an awesome song and I love it regardless of the meaning.
