A lonely maiden stands
Bound to the obelisk
As she tugs and pulls
And tries to twist
Shackles slice her virgin wrists
Blood now covers her tiny hands

How does thou receive this fate?
She asks of her own mind
Purity, innocence, encourage death
Life... gone is mine

I also ask of you my lord
Thy god in heaven
For I understand the error of mans ways
But of creation and the seven days
When was created the murky haze
From which the beast has risen

Fail me not my master
For this is your creation
Your son the bastard
Leviathan

Blackness, dripping stench
Unrelenting vice
Vile embellishment
Transcending pure evil

Standing now before her eyes
Wings expanding...she's going to die
Belching blue green fire
Flesh feeds the desire
The serpent gods apocalyptic smile

Come to me my demon brother
Of us both and our fathers
A failure of creation ... abomination

    My InterpretationThe song is about a virgin maiden who is taken captive and chained to an obelisk. She is to the dinner of a Levithan which is also known to be a giant sea monster. The first 4 sections of lyrics are the maiden blaming God for this fate while the last 2 are when the Leviathan appears to take the maiden. The last 3 lines of lyrics of the song I don't really understand.

    Thats my interpretation.

    General CommentI think its about the Devils child who is a demon and his fate is to kill a virgin and he hates it somehow it revolves around God and the seven days...

    General CommentThis song is more from the maiden's point of view, as she struggles to accept that she is doomed to become the meal of this beast, the Leviathan.

    General CommentSorry this ain't nothing about the Thomas Hobbes Book. The book and this song have nothing in common

    General CommentYep, this is about the Leviathan as previously stated. Although it's more through the eyes of the maiden then it is about the Leviathan itself. Anyways, great ass song.

    There she blames god for his failre during the creation and asks him when and why this haze was createt from which leviathan was born i guess so completely maybe it's about how got makes failures too or how he could let this happen if he is truly so good.Also she's saying that this thing is not her fault but though she has to carry out the consequence of gods failure.
