Music by Mårtenson
Lyrics by Jussi K. Niemelä

You storm the mountains
We close the gate
You scream your hate
You flood the fountains
Summon our faith
It's not too late

You blind their eyes
Their spiteful lies

As it is written
As it is written

The walls are crying
You bring as down
We kiss your crown
The waters dying
You let them sleep
We hear them weep

Our loving god
You spill their blood

As it is written
As it is written

Like it is written
Devour the moon
It's all too soon

The soldiers kneel
The walls of steel
The fading skies
My bleeding eyes

As it is written

    My InterpretationCould it be from the point of view of "ruler" who doesn't care about their people / subjects??

    I know most the imagery used is for a King / Queen, but could just as easily be translated to politicians / leaders nowadays (perhaps a metaphor??)

    The "as it is written" line makes me think of the quote that those win (or in this case in power) write the history books ...
