Shocked Orwellian races
Gather united in grief
Nothing is left from the world they have known
Grotesque indifferent belief
Systems have failed
Rules can't control
Corrupt dictators, forever dethroned
Lies of the Priest
Trust of the Blind
Failure of structures manipulate deviant crimes

All nations hail the end of peace
New dawn inception of disease
Age of revenge has now been born
By the mother of all wars

Enemy of God
Purity and innocence is killed
Enemy of God
Peace died long ago when life stood still

Clash of demonic religions
Hatred the human divine
Despotic aggressors in triumph they reign
Fanatics bring mayhem to life
War of all wars
Foreseen before
Freedoms foundations exist no more
A genocide nightmare the darkest of days
Chaos devourers as all hope and pride fades

Enemy of god
Purity and innocence is killed
Peace died long ago when life stood still

Now the fury is unleashed
The hunter has become prey for the beast
Breathing savage disdain
Malevolence ingrained
No emotion for humanity
Tragically the palace falls
Burned are the imperators halls
For their decadent facades
All their elitaire
Exhibition of filth to watch for all

For those who die along the way
timeless glory awaits

Nothing can divide
Terror is thy name
Last legion alive
Set the World aflame
Enemy of god
Cast deliverance
Fanatical divide
Slaying innocence
Enemy of god
Answer to no one
Bringing war from heaven
A thousand fires burn

    Funny how people can interpret things so different, huh?

    The way I see it, it touches on the hypocrisy of those who claim God as their master but defy His will, using the self-assigned title of believer to achieve more power for their conquest against humanity, but such a system cannot work and will eventually collapse in on itself, at which point holiness will be so degraded that it will have ceased to hold any power.

    Well, many thrash song meanings seem to be based on Atheistic ideas, even the ones that seem similar to the black metal song meanings. "The Devil Incarnate" by Death Angel for example, is actually about how people always waste so much time praying and hoping that some god will liberate us from the pain and suffering, when the power lies in their own hands. I think that when Kreator says "Enemy of God" he's really talking about hating religion, a purely Atheistic idea.

    This is quite a complexed song, for a thrash metal band.

    It seems to me, that it is about the rise of the Anti-Christ. He/it is supposed to offer a solution, to a global problem (in this case, corrupt goverment rule, which has brought the world to it's knees and created an 'Orwellian' social climate. It talks about how he will ultimately instigate a one-world government and kill everyone who opposes him.

    I'm going to have to agree with quiffporn. The whole album is about the end of the world and the coming of the antichrist. It is appearant especially in the song When Death takes its Dominion with the line "Laid before his royal satanic grace."

    i got to agree with quiffporn to, with the fact that the whole album is about the end of the world and stuff, and the fact that this song goes straight into impossible brutality.

    Well from what i've seen in interviews with Mille, emmerder is kind of on the right track.

    My Interpretation

    My interpretation is that these lyrics are about the cancerous spread of the totalitarian and dangerous ideology of islam, and the civilized world's inability to recognize or deal with the threat.

    "Shocked Orwellian races Gather united in grief Nothing is left from the world they have known"

    Refers to the politically correct west's long denial of the rising threat of islamic totalitarianism and it's final awakening shock after so many confrontations with islamic terror, finally realizing that this political correctness has brought them exactly the opposite of what they hoped for in a dead end path of self destruction. Related Orwell quote: "In a time of universal deceit - telling the truth is a revolutionary act."

    "Grotesque indifferent belief" - not quite sure, could be several things.

    "Systems have failed Rules can't control" refers to the west's laws and other social systems that are incapable of dealing with this new and unexpected threat, thereby allowing it to fester, spread, and take over.

    "Corrupt dictators, forever dethroned" - refers to middle eastern dictators who managed to keep lids on the boiling pots in middle east, were dethroned by the western nations, amidst torrents of rhetoric and wars.

    "Lies of the Priest Trust of the Blind" The "Priest" here symbolizes western rulers and the latter phrase refers to the blind leading the blind. Again this all refers to the west's state of denial and wishful thinking in the face of conflicting evidence.

    "Failure of structures manipulate deviant crimes" is another reference to "Systems have failed" but with the addition that these allow those who take advantage of and manipulate these systems, to carry on spreading their hateful ideology. Just 1 example of system manipulation is how muslims mute criticism by labelling it as a phobic (irrational) or racist, using laws of the west against the west.

    "All nations hail the end of peace New dawn inception of disease" That speaks for itself. There's no turning back now. Those in denial and those who appease have all allowed it to come so far, and since islam is a religion of submission (not peace!), peace will be no more with the inception of the desease (being islam).

    "Age of revenge has now been born By the mother of all wars" - not quite sure, as it could refer to several things.

    "Enemy of God Purity and innocence is killed Enemy of God Peace died long ago when life stood still" I think the phrase "Enemy of God" symbolizes islam, even though god does not exist and "when life stood still" refers to the period of denial and turning a blind eye to the threat, effectively killing peace.
