"Priestess" as written by and Mark Hulett Holcomb Spencer Sotelo....
A shadow in these walls
Yeah that is all I am
A prison deep under fortress crowns
Where they spill the blood of man

A second chance at life is all I've dreamed of
For now inside these walls I stay

Sitting far away I watched the blackness grow
Nevermind what is underneath the stone
It's a life that we're living all alone
Step out in the rain and feel the deep sorrow
Light is coming from the narrow road

Sometimes kindness speaks in tongues with one of them
I can see love in her eyes
And if I fall death will never stain one of his hands
I find safety in these lives

A second chance at life is all I've dreamed of
for now inside these walls I stay
Sitting far away I watched the blackness grow
Nevermind what is underneath the stone
This life we live alone
Step out in the rain and feel the deep sorrow
Light is coming from the narrow road

The chains are part of me
Still in resolve I bathe
Down here
I need to find a way
I've gotta find my way far from here

Another chance at life is fading slowly
Upon the cross I burn

Sitting far away I watched the blackness grow
Nevermind what is underneath the stone
This life we live alone
Step out in the rain and feel the deep sorrow
Light is coming from the narrow road

Sitting far away i watched the blackness grow
Nevermind what is underneath the stone
This life we live alone
Step out in the rain to feel the deep sorrow
lLight is coming from the narrow road

    General CommentI know this a concept album and that it has a whole story to it, but I feel like the whole album relates to us in some way. This song speaks to me more than the others (But the other songs are amazing too).

    I feel as if the person is the song has inner-demons that he cannot seem to overcome. He wishes he could have a clean slate(A second chance at life is all I've dreamed of). He feels like no one really understands him ( This life we live alone). He is destined to have this 'disease' forever(The chains are part of me.) I am a very religious person, so it is interesting how Spencer adds, "Upon the cross I burn." To me we all have burdens or crosses and sometimes they get the best of us, which seems to happen in this case.

    Personally I am a recovering addict so when it says, "I need to find a way. I’m gonna find my way far from here." This reminded me of myself when I realized that my disease was ruining my life. This song echos within me.

    Anyways, That is my interpretation. Juggernaut is the greatest album ever. So much epicness!

    My Interpretationi love the part after the first chorus.

    Sometimes kindness speaks in tongues with one of them
    I can see love in her eyes
    And if I fall death will never stain one of his hands
    I find safety in these lives

    the subject we should understand first is what does "her" and "his" referred to?

    here's my interpretation

    "her" is i think refer to Mother Nature, to me that translate to surrounding, so to put it in context: The protagonist saw something "beautiful" in nature( maybe kindness of others or something in that particular) and thought that maybe there's still hope in life, then in that same moment his mind reflect all the wrong doing and bad things he have done. "And if I fall death will never stain one of his hands " . "His" i think refer to God himself.

    "if I fall death will never stain one of his hands "as if even if he dies, the God wouldn't care because he's sinful ( maybe they use the hindu's concept of God since hindu portrayed God having many hands ) and that translates to: He couldn't find solace as his past haunted him which prevented him to proceed in life along with having any thoughts about hope.

    lastly the part "i find safety in these lies" could mean that, he knew there's still chance in life but due to his past that's haunted him, he chose to stay in his current state which is wallowing in his own sadness and failure in life because he's afraid he's going to fail again.

    btw sorry for poor explanation, english is not my main language.
