"Black Star Deceiver" as written by and Peter Leo Rickard/strid Wichers....
Black star, whenever you're ready
You're much too far away!
By now, your soul seems steady, now crawl to the cross

Meanwhile, time takes a turn
I'm feeling damned when you make it burn
Let's testify you're born to die
You speak the truth and so do I
Don't give it away [Repeat: 2X]
Don't try to nail [Repeat: 3x]

[Chorus]
Black star whenever you're ready
You're much too far away!
By now, your soul seems steady, now crawl to the cross
Black star deceiver kills it all
The sun lies waiting for a call

You seem to be a fatal one
Come watch me preach under the gun
I'm down and out, so down and out!

Black star whenever you're ready
you're much too far away!
By now, your soul seem steady, now crawl to the cross

[Chorus]
Black star deceiver kills it all
The sun lies waiting for a call [Repeat]

Take me away, I'm in distress
Oh grand deceiver, put me to rest
I was never in pain, sick or insane
So hear me now, you're the one that I blame!

Meanwhile time takes a turn
I'm feeling damned when you make it burn
Let's testify, you're born to die
You speak the truth and so do I
Don't give it away
Don't try to nail!

[Chorus]

    Song MeaningWell, from what I can gather, it seems like a foreshadowing of what many refer to as '2012', or the planetary alignment in December 2012.

    During that time, the planets will align and create a solar eclipse. Some believe that 'Planet X' aligns with the rest of the planets, and it is the "Black Star" or the hidden sun of our solar system. It is in shadow at all times (allegedly)

    "Black star deceiver kills it all...the sun lies waiting for a call."

    The sun is waiting for God's call to usher in the end of the planet. The black star that is not visible is understood to bring the downfall of the planet, in a frenzy of weather and geological problems, killing off the human race (or reducing it to shambles)

    Makes a lot more sense than assuming someone would call 'God' a 'black star deciever'...even satanists view God as 'good and pure' and merely dislike good, pure things, so why would they call him a deceiver which is what they call their master, satan?

    Doesn't make much sense, but I could be wrong. If they don't know much about Abrahamic religion, they wouldn't know that so yeah. lol

    General CommentI feel like he's talking to God, God being the Deceiver. He refers to "the Hands of the Deceiver" in Silent Bullet, too.

    General CommentSome lines sound like references to crucifixions with
    "don't you try to nail" and "now crawl to the cross"

    General CommentI think this is the best song on the CD. I just looked it up cuz of you guys comments. I had no idea Devin Townsend had a hand in this song, I couldn't tell it was him!! Doesn't surprise me though. Devin Townsend deserves more money, he should be more famous wtf.
