"The Maelstrom Mephisto" as written by and Stian Tomt/kopperud Thoresen....
Ride the vortex winds with the beast inside
Cast down all memories from a past and future world
The cynic icons and the cryptic writings
As a picturesque creation in force and spirit
Against their reason and will, it is time
Give darkness its passion plea

The venomous tongue - The inevitable poison - Paralyze the angels
Freeze the forgiven - Baptize in fire - Unleash the devil at heart

Unleash the maelstrom mephisto

[chorus:]
So sinner, mourn well
Make all the swans suffer in hell
The maelstrom of the mephisto left the trace
To revel and feast in undelivered grace

Pledged to judgmental arrogance in drawn principles of ignorant falsehood
To comprehend that the sin of life is life itself, a tyranny in torment, an inner-sanctum stealing sleep

So sinner, mourn well
Make all the swans suffer in hell

In the dimness surrounding the towers of the castle where the reavens spread their wings out wide
Dwell in depths of the darker self at any shore of infinity and watch the relentless paint the soil black
What is being formed echoes throughout eternity as the painter chooses color no more

The venomous tongue - The inevitable poison - Paralyze the angels
Freeze the forgiven - Baptize in fire - Unleash the devil at heart

[chorus]

Hold your shadows close when the comedy is over
As the days of mourning seem to be the days of joy
Fragments fell from the sky in order to penetrate the eyes
A convict wallowing in a lifetime of lies...lies

    General Commentwell i aswell cant belive im only the second person in 2 years to cmt. after u but omfg yes this song does own ur ass..... increadeable intro and for fuck sake brutal riffs...!! as for the meanin well im gonna go and try to take my best shot at it.... not that i have no idea what im talkin bout but then again i may be unbelivably wrong so... here it goes.....mephisto is the chief demon against christianity an alternate name for satan or lucifer yet mephisto is never mentioned in the bible only in some european literature works and as for mealstrom well its a powerful whirlpool; a large, swirling body of water. which in my eyes represents the power that mephisto will come through with in other words its a song bout the second coming of mephisto and his overtakin power will stop at the mercy of noone.... but those are my thoughts on it idk... i may be completly off....!! hope it serves well!!!

    General CommentI love the drums in the intro, and the guitar riffs, it's really epic. As for the meaning of this song, I agree with morocotopo.
