Never again
On your forcefed illusions to choke
You feed off my pain
Feed off my life

There won't be another dawn
We will reap as we have sown

Always the same
My tired eyes have seen enough
Of all of your lies
My hate is blind

There won't be another dawn
We will reap as we have sown

Slaughter of the soul
Suicidal final art
Children - born of sin
Tear your soul apart

Always the same
My tired eyes have seen enough
Of all of your lies
My hate is blind

There won't be another dawn
We will reap as we have sown

Slaughter of the soul
Suicidal final art
Children - born of sin
Tear your soul apart

    General CommentThis song and most of the others on the album for which it is the title track are about the destruction of traditional ways of thinking, and freeing one's mind in general. (Not in the hippy sense, of course.)

    General Commentdunno what its about, but a really great song (the Slaughter Of The Soul album is one of the best Swedish Melo-Death Albums IMO) but i do know that the part when Tomas yells "Go" before the instruments start was not planned as he said it " ..just kind of happened" awesome stuff and Adrian Erlandsson is such a top drummer

    General CommentThe lyrics on the SOTS Album, and the title track in particular, is influenced by Luke Rhinehart's book "The Dice Man". This book is influenced by Zen Buddhism. The book is about a guy who throws dice about all decisions he make, in order to erase all patterns in himself, and thus becoming free of the limiting personality. The book is really dark and full of humor and critic against everything. It is a must read.

    This song conveys the central message of the book, that of erasing the self as a way to gain freedom. However, it is written in a metal way, and is also highly misanthropic

    General CommentIve read the dice man numerous times and have come to the conclusion that the content on this at the gates album inspired by it is only loosely based on it. Great book. Great band. Great album.

    General Commenti actually used to think Tomas said "My giant eyes have seen enough" so everytime i heard the song i would wonder why.

    General CommentI see this songs meaning to be much the same as "Blinded by fear", which is, in my opinion, about being forcefed a view on reality so as to limit human potential and impose systems of control and manipulation upon humanity in general. Saxe-Coberg-Gotha to Oprah Winfrey's puppeteers, after thousands of years, the revolution will be swift. =)
    Two words left out... DO IT!!!!
