I consume the wind that makes you cold
and drink the blood of the bleeding soul
to check your fear and hide the noise
of the howling wolves that steals your voice

I confuse your mind and feed your dreams
to read your thoughts and keep them safe
from harmful truth and hopeful lies
of the tempting demon that hurts you eyes

I will protect you from your visions
to save you from illusions
I will protect you from ideals
to save you from defeats

I consume the wind that makes you bold
and suck the blood of the living souls
to make you numb and hide the noise
of the howling wolves that is your voice

I seduce the mind to fear your dreams
and read your thoughts to keep you blind
from harmful truth and the open skies
of the outside world before your eyes

    My Interpretationi think this song is actually about feedback, like you receive when people comment on your work. "i will protect you from your visions save you from delusions, i will protect you from ideals to save you from defeat" sometimes you think you are great, when the consensus might say otherwise, feedback removes your self-delusion of perfection to keep you from becoming complacent, and thus irrelevant. i'm rather convinced that this is the message, and was impressed by how clever this song is when i realized it. covenant = awesome.

    General CommentI would say it is about a society that's overprotecting its citizens, thus suffocating their spirit. By keeping them away from everything "dangerous", they are kept away from everything that evolves them.

    I noticed that there are very few posts on Covenant's songs. It personally think that their songs are very well written, all with a message behind them. As in the case of VNV Nation they deserve thorough analysis. VNV's songs are more touching, maybe that's the reason why people have posted more on them...

    General CommentI agree that more posts should be made about Covenant. They're more analytical, though, at times, so I guess that's why VNV seem more accessible. Feeling over thought. Not that VNV are shallow by any means. This song seems at first to be the message sent by the "State", censorship, etc., saying that what they do is for our own good. At the end, the real face comes out, and the greed and suffocation becomes plain. That's what I think, anyway.

    General CommentI think the song is mainly about the little voice in the back of our minds that tells us to stay safe, not to take any risks so that we will not be hurt. It's the restraint we put on ourselves, not that which is put on us by others. Hence the "feedback"...
