Lies - And you fill their souls
With all oppressions of this world
And all the glory you receive?
So, What makes you supreme?
Lies - Your crown is falling
I offer fantasy
And you, you creator are
Blind with envy

Let the children come to me
Their mother loves me, so shall they
Woman, bleeding, ate my gifts
Man was close behind
Just like a snake I'm slithering
Thru my world divine
And like the cat I'm stalking
I'll take your soul and You'll
Be like me
In emptiness, free

Just bow to me faithfully
Bow to me splendidly

    General CommentThis killer is the best MA song ever. The chorus is so evil. This song has a double meaning. First, it shows how a life of Christianity is empty and meaningless. Second, it shows that the true "God of Emptiness" is Satan, in which if you embrace, you are empty. You don't live with the constraints of God's laws. (Be like me In emptiness, free). Vincent also goes as far as claiming, in his Devil persona, that God is envious of the empty, unrestrained life that Lucifer leads now.

    Song MeaningThe song's about how Christianity is based on nothing but lies, that were created by a master of deceit, Satan himself. The lyrics seem lame, unless you understand what their about, because it's pure genius.

    General CommentI suppose I should probably post what I think this song means, aswell.

    I think he is writting from the point of view of the Devil, and it's about tempting mankind to sin.

    General Comment"First, it shows how a life of Christianity is empty and meaningless" I think I'd phrase it differently... I'd say it CLAIMS not "shows" Because in reality Life without Christ is empty and meaningless. And there is no way that God is envious of Lucifer, because Lucifer no longer exists. Lucifer was an Angel that ceased to exist when he became Satan because it was HE who was envious of God. So I look at the lyrics of this song and this is what I believe it means. It's clearly written from Satan's perspective, and he is attempting to entice people to turn away from God and turn to him. Claiming that somehow it's good and blissful to be in emptiness with him. It's just more lies from the deceiver. My spiritual enemy. Praise God!!!!

    My InterpretationI actually believe the second verse is from the perspective of god. He is replying to the first verse said by his conflicting entity. (The “Devil”, I suppose most would assume.)

    The first verse is, as the two-part title suggests, said by the accuser. I believe Satan and Lucifer to be two separate beings, whichever you prefer, but the accuser is probably one of the two. He is calling god out. “And you fill their souls will all oppressions of this world. And all the glory you receive?” He can’t believe god gets so much praise for creating man only to punish him for his flaws. He further claims that he can give man what he truly wants, perhaps to be like god; fantasy.

    The second verse is a rebuttal from god. “Let the children come to me, their mother loves me, so shall they.” He is pretty much saying that his followers are bred into faith, and is fully confident that they won't stray. “Woman, bleeding, ate my gifts, man was close behind.” The serpent, again, a different entity from Satan and Lucifer, did tempt Eve with the fruit of the tree. But god created the tree only for Eve to eat from it. So, who is the real bad guy here? The “woman, bleeding” lyric is an obvious reference to women being punished for Eve’s mistake by means of their menstrual cycles. “Just like a snake I’m slithering” sounds as though god is comparing himself to the serpent. Gee, I wonder why?

    Most likely wrong, but its how I always imagined the song playing out; a conversation between “the devil” and “god.”
