I was there through the ages
Chained slaves to their cages
I have seen you eat your own
I'm the cycle of pain
Of a thousand year old reign

I'm suicide and salvation
The omen to nations
That you worship on all fours
I'm the infection and famine
That's knocking at your door

That's why you're feeling so
Oh, I was created by man, you know I'm
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

I am the incubus,
I lay the egg in you
The worm that burrows through your brain
But you are the beast that calls me by my name

You send your children to war
To serve bastards and whores
So now you know
You created me on the day that you were born

I was created by man, yeah I'm the Lord of the Flies, you know I'm
From the left hand of power comes the father of lies, yeah

I lay you down to sleep
Your soul to keep
Better cross your heart before you die
And now you know
Know that you are mine

That's why you're feeling so

    My InterpretationI am pretty sure it is talking about how people strive to be good and consider themselves to be "holy", but usually end up doing bad things anyway.

    General CommentI don't think so at all, I think that it is suggesting more of a plague or perhaps the fallen nature in man

    General CommentIt was said back in the 90s when this song came out it was refering to the evil we know as cancer after Eric Carr past away.

    General Comment"The worm that burrows through your brain " probably is talking about bad thoughts
    "You created me on the day that you were born" What is crated when I was born is the original sin.
    "was created by man, yeah I'm the Lord of the Flies" Is a book that demonstrate that man by their nature are evil.
    So I thick that probably is talking about nan evil nature.
