There is a place far from her home
She strayed her path too long
In that wood, she found the stone
Lost souls should never look upon

At first glance, a lone monolith
Lifeless, cold and grey
She looked in deep, this timeless relic
The lost fall easy prey

Come into my world, my child
I will take you home
I'm your Reaping Stone

Come into my world, my child
I will take you home
I'm your Reaping Stone

Think not of ones you've lost
Nor of ones you leave
I shall give you strength to pass
I will set you free

Come into my world, my child
I will take you home
I'm your Reaping Stone

Come into my world, my child
I will take you home
I'm your Reaping Stone

    General CommentThis is my first analysis of a song on here. But anyway.

    I think this song is about temptation. To be lost is a feeling we all have occasionally, and it implies that we are looking for something. The person is lost and the evil is offering her strength, freedom, and a home. Knowing Jon Schaffer to be a Christian, and the overall semi hidden Christian theme of this album, the monolith is as Satan, making deceptive offers.

    My InterpretationThis song seems like its a person who wanders off and finds a stone in a forest which ultimately will kill her.
