Eine Gestalt lag auf dem Boden
so bösartig, dab die Blumen um sie herum
eine dunkle Seele lag auf dem Boden
so kalt, daß alles Wasser sich in Eis verwandelte
Ein Schatten fiel über den Wald
als des Gestalts Seele dahinwelkte
denn des gestalts Seele war ein Schatten
ein Schatten der Kräfte des Bösen.

    NORWEGIAN AND ENGLISH TRASLATION: En skikkelse lå der på bakken. Så vond at de blomster rundt visnet. En dyster sjel lå der på bakken. Så kald at alt vann ble til is. En skygge da falt over skogen. Da skikkelsens sjel visnet bort. For skikkelsens sjel var en skygge. En skygge av vondskapens makt. ENGLISH TRANSLATION: A figure lay there on the ground. So painful that the flowers around withered. A gloomy soul lay there on the ground. So cold that the water froze. A shadow settled over the woods. When the figure withered away. Because the figure was a shadow. A shadow of the pains power. -Varg Vikernes, 1993

    Well, the song's called "Jesus's Death", and it mentions this "being" that's so evil all the flowers wither, so cold that all the water freezes, and when the being dies (or its soul fades/withers away), a shadow falls over the forest (which could represent the whole world, or maybe just the forests of Norway?). It's a nice reversal of how Jesus is usually seen - depicting him as an evil, evil being, rather than as a good person; a being that brings darkness instead of light.

    Bible quote follows. "He will arise as a calming influence when the world is in chaos seeking peace." What is Jesus was the devil?? Can you even begin to comprehend what this implies? Damn, is my brain is fucked? I'm a product of the media. Pluss to much weed i guess. Great song though!!! _No(r)way_

Alma Matters
The man has pseudo-friends who constantly criticize his actions. They moralize him, "teach" him and advise him to make a significant change in his life, because the way he is and what he does is not what they say it should be. They may find his life lame or immoral. They hold themselves up as role models. The man replies that he will make his own choices and decisions and he does not agree to unconditionally make himself under the influence of questionable quality advice. He justifies this by saying that there is always someone for whom he will be important, no matter what he does and no matter what he is. Although it is not said directly, I read it as meaning that he will always be important to himself in every way and he will always have his own support. "Everyone is different and maybe that's a good thing, but you exceeded that mark 1000 times" - I remember very well how sad the words I once heard (from my peers and it was in negative context) at school made me feel.
