"Angels Shall Sin, Demons Shall Pray" as written by and Daniel Lamond Alex Koehler....
Angels shall sin
Demons shall pray
They came for our voice and took it away
Our silent screams,
Our silent goodbye
They took our hope
They took our freedom, wrapped us in chains
They took our hope
They took our freedom

We're not the same
We'll never be the same
I don't want to be you I don't want to see you
You say you're close to God
I'd really like to meet him
I don't want to be you I don't want to see you
I'm tired of all the shame
This time our voices will be heard!
They took our hope
They took our freedom, wrapped us in chains
They took our hope
They took our freedom

We're not the same
We'll never be the same
I don't want to be you I don't want to see you
You say you're close to God
I'd really like to meet him
I don't want to be you I don't want to see you
I'm tired of all the shame
This time our voices will be heard!
Scream my name, feel my pain
I'll bleed you dry of faith!

Call us by our name.
We are not the same
Call us by our name.
We're over playing games
Bitch!

    General CommentI think the meaning of the song is pretty straight forward, but of course, I'm not lyrical genius so I'm not 100% sure. Anyways, it seems obvious that Chelsea Grin is a anti Christian band, judging by song titles, lyrics, videos etc. I believe that this song portrays there beliefs directly. The first section of the song;


    Angels shall sin
    Demons shall pray
    They came for our voice and took it away
    Our silent screams,
    Our silent goodbye
    They took our hope
    They took our freedom, wrapped us in chains
    They took our hope
    They took our freed

    This section basically states that the when the Christianity controls people, it takes away hope and limits there freedom of speech. I could also mean that Christians are not allowed to create their own beliefs, which forces them into a state of internal frustration which can't be released. Hence "our silent screams, our silent goodbye"


    I don't want to be you I don't want to see you
    You say you're close to God
    I'd really like to meet him
    I don't want to be you I don't want to see you
    I'm tired of all the shame

    In this part, Chelsea Grin is displaying their anger towards Christian brainwashers or church authorities (most likely not followers, since they sorta showed sympathy and sadness towards them in the first section... Sorta). They are challenging these people and asking if they have proof that God actually exists, and if they have the rights to brainwash their followers. They ask this by requestion proof of God's existence:

    You say you're close to God
    I'd really like to meet him

    In conclusion, I think this song is about Christianity, and how it is destroying the Christian followers lives. They also display anger towards people who are "brainwashing" the followers. This is just a hypothesis, I would love to hear other people's opinions.
