Circle within circle
And when that hour came
From words they passed to deeds
Spires, spirals, and stones rise
And in the distance, a cathedral in flames

Given a chance to recover his breath
And exposed to the process once more

The youth squirmed in a shower of gold
That etched on his skin the words
"Paradise stands in the shadow of swords"

    General CommentIt's about torture and isolation. Taking influence from The 120 Days of Sodom, the song is about a group of youth locked away and sexually tortured. In their isolation, they are oblivious to what is happening in the outside world, but one day, one of them catches a glimpse outside where they're being held, and they see a cathedral in flames, signalling the apocalypse.
