Crush the resistance!

Storm the halls and all the rooms
And break resistance
All who will choose the narrow road
Will be the victims
Crush resistance!
Withdraw the power
Seek to bring down the leader
Devour the smallest of the pride
And wring the blood from your fur
For they're as white as the morning,
But they are weak from the need to forgive
Cover yourselves with the flesh of their fallen
And dress for the banquet
For they are weak and unknowing!
Dress for the banquet
For the rain is falling from the

Grey sky!
Death comes in the
Black night!
We will never see the
Sun light!
In the shadow of your hate
Falling from the
Grey sky!
Death comes in the
Black night!
We will never see the
Sun light!
In the shadow of your hate
Look into the grey sky as its turning into night

Wear the stone down to sand
And weigh them down with your sorrow!
Dress for the banquet
For they are weak and unknowing!
Dress for the banquet
For they are weak and unknowing!
And the rain is falling from the

Grey sky!
Death comes in the
Black night!
We will never see the
Sun light!
In the shadow of your hate
Falling from the
Grey sky!
Death comes in the
Black night!
We will never see the
Sun light!
In the shadow of your hate
Look into the grey sky as its turning into night

As I send you out
Into the shadow
Lurk the woods
And every dark place!

    General CommentThis is the most epic and powerful song I've ever heard! It's definitely written from the wolf's perspective as prawns said. The resistance is Christianity. The wolf (satan here) seeks to crush it before it gets out of hand since we, as Christians, are here to spread the word to unbelievers. It's pretty self explanatory but I'll post my interpretation anyway b/c the song is awesome.

    Storm the halls and all the rooms
    And break resistance
    All who will choose the narrow road
    Will be the victims
    Crush resistance!

    The ones who choose the narrow road are the Christians. He's telling his minions to target us because we are responsible for the resistance that keeps him from ruling without opposition.

    Withdraw the power
    Seek to bring down the leader
    Devour the smallest of the pride
    And wring the blood from your fur

    The leaders here would be the Christians who actively seek to save the lost by preaching the gospel. It also says in the third line to devour the smallest which would be the weaker Christians as prawns stated.

    For they're as white as the morning,
    But they are weak from the need to forgive
    Cover yourselves with the flesh of their fallen

    Here the wolf identifies what he believes to be our weakness which is the need to forgive. he tells them to cover themselves with the flesh of our fallen which means to use those who have already strayed from God to bring down the rebels (Christians)


    And dress for the banquet
    For they are weak and unknowing!
    Dress for the banquet
    For the rain is falling from the

    I feel this is the most powerful part of the song. It shows how little satan thinks of us. he tells his soldiers to dress for the banquet indicating how easily he expects to take us down. This is supported by the line "For they are weak and unknowing". Referring to those who are not strong in their faith and those who are unaware of the war going on here on Earth.

    (Chrous)

    The chorus is like a battle cry given to the wolves for motivation. The "grey sky" refers to the fact that they feel are almost finished and there is little fighting left to do. Once the last of us are devoured, the sky will turn to night and they will have their victory.

    As I send you out
    Into the shadow
    Lurk the woods
    And every dark place!

    These are the wolf's final orders. He sends the wolves out into the "shadow" and "every dark place" where they will be difficult to see and identify.

    General CommentThis song sort of confused me. It sounds like it's a battle cry for demons or those who would attack Christians. It talks about devouring those who chose the 'narrow path' who are 'white as the morning'. It also talk about wolves dressing in sheeps clothing I think when it says to 'wring the blood from your fur' and 'dress for the banquet'.

    I was hoping that at the end of this song it would describe Christ's victory over them, like what Oh Sleeper did with Song of the Morning/The Finisher. Anyone else have an interpretation, maybe the meaning or perspective of the chorus?

    Song MeaningTo me, this song is sung from the wolf's perspective. The wolves are also a metaphor for anyone who desires to do evil, subterfuge, and prey on those who are weak.

    Storm the halls and all the rooms
    And break resistance
    All who will choose the narrow road
    Will be the victims
    Crush resistance!
    Withdraw the power
    Seek to bring down the leader
    Devour the smallest of the pride
    And wring the blood from your fur
    For they're as white as the morning,
    But they are weak from the need to forgive
    Cover yourselves with the flesh of their fallen
    And dress for the banquet
    For they are weak and unknowing!
    Dress for the banquet

    This states how they will utilize manipulation and duplicity in order to achieve their goals. They will appear as one way while they have other intentions. Perhaps preying on weaker Christians who are more unsure of their faith.

    General CommentIMO, you must read these lyrics first, then "The Un-manifest", then after that, "The Place that Most Deny". I believe all 3 of these are related lyrically and musically.
