i am the reaper
i will be the demise of your reign
i am the dark shadow where you hide
self-righteous fascist, you chase the sun
glory belongs to no man
crooked church, you sell the Son
thieves deserve to have no hands
our prisons were built with the stones of law
whore houses are built with the bricks of religion
oh man of God from which was your stone
I've stayed quiet for far too long
cause I've typecast myself to censor what i can say
I'm so sick of this, sick of whats going on
now I'm putting an end to my silence
your god's not real
this is the end of my silence
the wolf provides for his own but God provides for the lion
i am the lion, you are the wolf
you can run but i will find you
i am the reaper

    Song MeaningThe meaning of the song is Churchs not providing their members with the doctorine of Christ as well as it includes something about them having whore houses as well. The wolf represents the ungodly church and the lion represents God's church. " The wolf provides for its own, but God provides for the lion, I'am the lion, you are the wolf." Very influencial song!!!

    General CommentThe Marriage of Heaven and Hell is actually a book written by William Blake in the late 1700s. All of the song titles from this album are taken from the first 10 lines of the poem "A Song of Liberty." A lot of the lyrics and ideas from this song come from The Marriage of Heaven and Hell as well. Here are some lines taken from the book:

    "The Eternal Female groand! it was heard all over the Earth."
    "Empire is no more! and now the lion & the wolf shall cease."
    "The fox provides for himself, but God provides for the lion."
    "Prisons are built with stones of Law, Brothels with bricks of Religion."
