Ready yourself for the end
Ready yourself 'cause you cannot pretend
Ready yourself for the late, for the great
The Destroyer’s surrounded and cannot defend

The lives that you thought that were yours to devour
Destroyer, the tables have turned in this hour
The plagues you unleashed, every vice that you fed
Shall be visited here tenfold on your head

Let go
'Cause you know
In the end all you were was a pawn in the show

Witness the fear of the fiends
Open the floodgates, behold and believe
Witness the pain, let it rain on the beast
For the serpent is slain in a blaze of defeat

    General CommentI'm pretty sure that this is about satan (the serpent) from the Bible. He is the destroyer and cause of destruction on the earth. He devours lives, causes corruption etc.
    The song, though, is a reminder that satan is a defeated foe- that God will have the victory and satan will be held accountable for his crimes. He has 'unleashed plagues' and fed people vices to trip them, but God will have the ultimate verdict and satan lives in fear of that judgement (fear of the fiends).
    The song is very cool in that while it's about all this negativity and makes us think about how messed up the world is, it reminds us that God is ultimately in control and wills the final battle. The devil will be punished- because of God's greatness and His power and might! Could it be the armies of angels that the singer is calling to witness the final defeat? To surround the destroyer? (I'm not sure, but it's pretty neat!)
    I'm not entirely sure about the 'let go' part... I think it's a call to us, to defy the destroyer- to know that he is defeated and we should 'let go' of our vices, our (self-) destructive behaviours etc. If we are aware that our destructive behaviours, addictions, bad habits etc are designed to hold us back, that because of them, we are pawns in satan's game of destruction... Any other thoughts?
