Enter paradise, the snake will find the way
She is Lilith, fallen from the sky
Fall into our world, the Snake of paradise
(You're the) Maid of Wisdom in (the) songs of Orpheus

She's the wisdom, she's the truth: The Eternal Sophia
Perennial, beyond the time, she is the one
You're the river, you're the womb
The perennial
The Sophia

Sophia is here
do we need to fear?
She's the gem of (the) mind
... (or the) serpent for the blind
She will make me see
or she will punish me
She appear in a glare
or disappear

She's the wisdom, she's the truth: The Eternal Sophia
Perennial, beyond the time, she is the one
You're the river, you're the womb
The perennial
The Sophia

Shekinah, Shekinah
Eternal Sophia
Shekinah, Shekinah
Eternal Sophia

She's the wisdom, she's the truth: The Eternal Sophia
Perennial, beyond the time, she is the one
You're the river, you're the womb
The perennial
(The) Sophia...
Sophia...

    General CommentLilith is a figure from Jewish kabballism, although her name actually translates literally to "night." In modern paganism, she is thought of as symbolizing an empowered female, generally including sexual empowerment and independence. A painting of Lilith by John Collier, who was strongly antagonistic toward mainstream Christianity, refers to this perception.

    It is really a frontal assault on the madonna-whore complex. The madonna-whore complex is an impairment, in men's ability to think about a woman, in which some men are incapable of both being sexually attracted to a woman and also respecting her as a person. This song, on the other hand, elevates a sexually desirable and empowered woman to a state of reverence, heralding even an outright sexually predatory female as being deserving not only of esteem but perhaps even of reverence.

    The band is based in Sweden, and Swedish women are among the most empowered in the entire world if not THE most empowered in the entire world. Furthermore, songwriters in the heavy metal genre are notoriously liberal compared with the rest of their cultures, and one making references to a notoriously feminist symbol in modern paganism, a thousand times moreso.

    Anything these people write is probably a deliberate and direct slap in the face of mainstream conservative Christianity's concepts of morality. It is designed to instill mortal fear in conservative Lutherans in a culture in which religion, especially conservative interpretations of it, is on the defensive, on the ropes, and halfway unconscious.
