Devoted to your own opiate
In escapades from discontent
Are you shutting off from the outside world
To reflect on your mind shallow gutter?

For this is your empire, this is your intrigue
Here you own them all, here you seal the deed

Contaminated from the spree of self salvation
To keep the fever flowing in the veins
Prominently manipulating heaven and hell
Does your sophistically discreet interlude
Maintain stories not to be revealed?

In your search for redemption
Greed and lies become the savior
Through the lecherous eyes disgust withstand
For are not these the windows to your soul?

Fatherly fornication of sweat lips in dismay
Repeatedly unlocking the vaults to the holocaust
The dormant prodigy seeks it's reason for rebirth
But it will never, never gain the strength

A surrender in superficial scorn
The rape of an ever unborn
Seeds have been planted in the name of the son
Until this day, ungodliness is yet to be gone

Sacramental suicide amidst the flow of virgin vine
The only way to comfort the defeat

A surrender in superficial scorn
The rape of an ever unborn
Seeds have been planted in the name of the son
Until this day, ungodliness is yet to be gone

Regrets can no longer find it's ways
Streams of innocent bitter tears flowing down the drain
Mirrored in the haze of a partaker's eyes

    General CommentLike I said before I'm not positive about this song but the reason I'm getting what I'm getting is from the 1st, 6th, 7th, and final lines of those two stanzas. I'm seeing the first (contaminated from the spree of self salvation) as things being bad from humans getting wealthy and greedy, the sixth and seventh (in your search for redemption greed and lies become the savior) talking about how when you want something some will become greedy and will go as far as lying to get to what they want, and then the last line of that stanza (for are not these the windows to your soul) seems to be saying that by committing the above acts you're opening yourself up to damnation.

    I'm personally not antichrist but because I don't understand that particular belief I don't feel that I'm at liberty to say whether its right or wrong. Dimmu Borgir is just a musically incredible band, so I listen to them and respect their beliefs
    while listening to the music whether I agree with it or not.

    General CommentI can't belive im the first one to comment this song.
    This is one of my favorite DCA songs i really love guitars in this one and keyboard are amazing especially during the 6th and 7th verse.
    Anyways this songs seems to be about hipocrisy of catholic church which is seen most in the 3rd and 4th verse

    General CommentIm amazed you're the first to, ive been waiting for a meaning to this one, one of my favorites

    seems to be about the path to damnation, just the second stanza seems to be at least there is probably more to it though

    my favorite verse of all time is in this song though (In your search for redemption, greed and lies become the savior)

    General CommentYou could be right since english isn't my mother tongue.
    I think this whole song is aimed at catholic church. The way i see third verse is about how catholic church invented god and they constantly manipulate heaven and hell to keep us afraid and make us go to church. And then there is a line which says:
    "Seeds have been planted in the name of the son"
    this one probably refers to jesus but then again "seeds of what"? maybe fear of hell? seeds of religion? i really need help with that one. I hope someone finds my uncoherent thoughts usefull. This song rises more questions the more i look at it : )

    General CommentI's actually good that you and me have different standpoints about this song... what a boring world it would be if we all had same standpoints about things...
    I see it differently than you and that's OK, hmmm maybe we could ask Silenoz (i belive he wrote it) what this song actually means LOL!

    General CommentYeah he sure is... he's one of the founders of dimmu borgir, along with shagrath and tjoldav so it's logical to assume him to to play a part in every dimmu borgir song

    General Commentfuck since we can't agree on a meaninng don't you think we could use a third opinion?
