"Demiurge" as written by Fredrik Thordendal, Jens Kidman, Maarten Hagstroem, Tomas Haake and Dick August Loevgren....
Writing and embraced
Retribution. Soul eclipse turns solid
Energized. Sucking vomit acting like its honey
Deprived of I
Falling while thrusting squares through circles
Serving one single new dimension

Terror rising. Agnostics nemesis. A prophet of extinction

I scorch the skies before your very eyes
My deliverance - enslavement labelled: love

Just trust this nemesis to sign and seal extinction

    General CommentA Demiurge is a being responsible for the creation of the universe. So I'd say yeah it got a religious touch to it. Gnosticism describes a collection of ancient religions whose followers shunned the material world created by the demiurge and embraced the spiritual world. And Agnosticism is the view that the truth values of certain claims, especially claims about the existence or non-existence of God, as well as other religious and metaphysical claims that are unknown or unknowable. So I think the line "Agnostics nemesis; A prophet of extinction" could have something to do with the devil? Also the line "Falling while thrusting squares through circles
    Serving one single new dimension" I think has something to do with the devil as he fell from heaven and then created chaos and served in Hell.
    To sum it up. In my eyes it's saying to all the small minded people "What if it isn't bullshit? How will you feel then?" Which makes the line "I scorch the skies before your very eyes" so damn cool. You always hear these small minded people saying "seeing is believing" so to see the skies "scorch before their very eyes" would just be terrifying to them because they could never wrap their heads around the idea of a God or a Devil. I could be completely wrong but that's what i think the song is about, the lyrics are written so well. FYI I'm not religious.

    General CommentI'm thinking this could be about people tangling themselves in religion and being close-minded. I really wish more people can have more interpretations here. This song looks so flexible with meanings.

    My InterpretationFor some reason I think this song is about having a child!

    "Writhing and embraced" and "serving one single new dimension" I interpret as giving into bestial urges to reproduce. This urge is very strong in all animals, people included, and can be all consuming.

    "Terror rising. Agnostics nemesis. A prophet of extinction" to me sounds like the pregnancy/gestation. The fear of upcoming responsibility and being given something to worship in the future?

    "My deliverance - enslavement labelled: love" - The realisation at the moment of birth that you are now a parent, and responsible for this newborn child that you love. This love is so strong that it enslaves you.

    "Just trust this nemesis to sign and seal extinction " - I get the feeling the new baby/love is the nemesis to the selfish self serving self, and as such puts an end to it.

    General CommentThe demiurge, the corrupted malevolent force that tricked us into thinking it was god, feeding on our hate and anger, our anxiety and fear. It wants you to think less of others, more of your self, it wants you to be apart from the world rather than part of it. It wants you to think you're alone and it needs you to want false hope or "faith". Tell anyone that blindly believes in "God" that they're part of the problem and Meshuggah are the fucking solution.
