Who is this man
That follows me?
This blue eyed boy
Who wants to be
This worthy cause
Of humankind
This pawn set up by time

Like a bright light on the horizon
Shining so bright, he'll get you flying
He'll drive you away, he'll drive you insane
But then he'll remove all of your pain

Like a bright light on the horizon
Shining so bright, he'll get you flying
He'll get you flying, he'll get you flying
He'll get you flying, flying, flying

This open book
Yet to be read
This second look
This leap ahead
The hope I held inside
With you, was kept alive

Like a bright light on the horizon
Shining so bright, he'll get you flying
He'll drive you away, he'll drive you insane
But then he'll remove all of your pain

Like a bright light on the horizon
Shining so bright, he'll get you flying
He'll get you flying, he'll get you flying
He'll get you flying, flying, flying

We're here to stay
We're here to stay
We're here to stay
We're here to stay

We're here to stay
We're here to stay
We're here to stay
We're here to stay

Like a bright light on the horizon
Shining so bright, he'll get you flying
He'll get you flying, he'll get you flying
He'll get you flying, flying, flying

    My InterpretationThis song is all about the Antichrist. There are several hints in the song that makes me think about this:

    "This blue eyed boy
    Who wants to be

    This worthy cause
    Of human kind
    This pawn set up by time"

    The Antichrist will be seen at the end of time as the noblest living Earth, but in the end will be just a pawn of the devil in his plans for world domination.

    "Like a bright light on the horizon
    Shining so bright, he'll get you flying
    He'll drive you away, he'll drive you insane
    But then he'll remove all of your pain"

    Planet Venus, when seen as a bright light in the sky just before sunrise, has been called for centuries under the name 'Lucifer'. 'Lucifer' come from a Latin expression that means 'Lightbearer', and is one of the names given by Christian tradition to the devil. Anyone who can make a person fly, make him insane and remove all his pain (does not specify whether the pain is physical or spiritual) needs to have magical or spiritual qualities that not anyone would have or could develop.

    "This open book
    Yet to be read
    This second look
    This leap ahead

    The hope I held inside
    With you, was kept alive"

    'The open book yet to read' represents the fact that, although the existence of the Antichrist is already known, the extent of his evil and harm to be done to the world is not yet completely known nor fully understood. The singer has faith the "light" of the Antichrist will keep alive the hope that the world will make a "leap forward" and walk away definitively from God.

    'We're here to stay...'

    The followers of darkness are and will continue to seek to bring the world into the abyss; among those followers, it seems, this band. They make clear what they are aspiring to even in their name: 'New Order'.

    Maybe many of you may or may not agree with it, but this is my opinion. Greetings.
