Infatuated with the ignorance we all pretend to ignore
With the time and preparation I could be a tyrant and ensure the downfall
I could easily entice you to kill everything that you love

Your system knows it all
No secrets kept within the walls
I have the plan to bring it all down to an end

How the fuck could anyone believe the truth
When the religious fools have endless prophecies
Bring it all down to an end
I find it amusing when you think it all makes sense
I have the solution
Bring it all down to an end

Now that I have control of you all
This situation is only getting worse

The darkest day of man is up on us all
You are all now reborn to serve your purpose well
The darkest day of man is upon us all
Now the world can rest in peace forever

    Song MeaningThe Darkest Day of Man - "This song is about how easily people are fooled and how gullible they are. People will believe almost everything they’re told. Trust yourself and believe what is true in your heart. These are our darkest days and we are letting it happen. This also portrays a tyrant taking advantage of that."

    General Commentfrom the looks of this song, i don't think this album will hold it's own against This is Exile and The Somatic Defilement. I'd love to be proved wrong though.

    General Commentwoah beans. cant wait for the new album. YEAH! the song is about the devil telling us to,"entice you to kill everything that you love." I think it also relates to the apcolypse and him submitting the world into," the darkest day of man."

    General CommentAnti-religious song about how religious differences will lead to an apocalyptic one-day war and the world will end.

    The song is heavy as hell, typical of whitechapel. The video is interesting but I have to fast forward through some parts like when they inject a needle into the cartoon guy's eye, ugg. But other than that it's cool

    General CommentThis song refers to the so called rapture, the end of man. " I could easily entice you, to kill everything that you love" is basically saying that "Satan" or whoever the dark deity he is referring to, to do his evil bidding.
    "How the fuck could anyone believe the truth
    When the religious fools have endless prophecies" is basically saying there are so many prophecies to know the "Real" one is factious. The song is amazing Phil's voice is outstanding the whole entire album. Just thought i would throw in my 2 cents about what i thought it meant.

    Song MeaningInteresting how this song is dubbed anti-religious, which it really isn't. Judging from Phil's other works and various interviews it seems to be more against hive-minding. People just accepting what they are told, and not examining it for themselves. Religious leaders are definitely guilty of leading people like that, but as Phil says, the song is also about a tyrant (king/political leader) taking advantage of people's gullible, unquestioning nature.

    It's not about Satan at all.
