We have been waiting for you, anticipating you
We shall not lose faith in all that is heaven.
Because heaven is such a small place
Seconds to minutes to hours to days.
Screaming for something that's something I will never hold.
All around you is tinder for the Gods.
Seconds to minutes to hours to days.
Screaming for something that's something I will never hold.
All around you is tinder for the Gods.
Storms across the Battlements, the After Fire.
Storms across the Battlements, the After Fire.

    General CommentAs for me,the main idea here is long time deadly opposition of HEAVEN in its true meaning(Spiritual,deeply mysterious Heim of Gods called Asgard,or Svarga,or Olympus,or so...)and "heaven" in christian sence.Possessing our Northern Hemisphere for 1000 of years,eden-realm of YHVH-like a screencloud disconnecting our folk from the Gods,from the torrent of Universe.F.ex.,the changing of calendary circle inflicted 2-weeks deformation of natural annual sequence,thus all the Heathen feasts/mysteries survived in christian times had lost their connect with sacral Wheel of Time...Anyway,it will lead to grandiose war in all the heims;then,TOTALER KRIEG in Midgard be a reflection of plunder & pillage in world beyond.Imagine such a Ragnarok scenario:WOTAN/THOR VS. YHVH/christ/allah...Such a Wars are waged not in visible reality only,they just reflect carnages in phantasmagoric dimensions...

    General CommentIn addition to the ubiquitous "Universal Soldier" quotes, there's also a clip at the end from "Forbidden Planet".
