    General CommentAbsolutely spine-tinglingly artistic, this piece.
    I FREAKED the first time I heard it in pitch black in my bed.

    It's God speaking.
    But God has been deformed and mutilated by this being that has enslaved him.
    Enslaved God.
    That's incomprehensible.

    This is a masterpiece.

    General CommentI can only assume that since the subject is an abstraction (i.e. God) The abductor is also an abstraction - perhaps he stands for atheism or entropy, oblivion, something like that. Personally I think the element of having scales is simply an arbitrary element meant to add an element of shock to the piece, and to carry the chilling ambience around that part.

    General CommentThis is what I think about hearing this song:

    The devil is in fact who the populous of earth worship, though they portray him as a 'god'. And god is in fact in chains in the depths of hell.
    On earth it would appear that the phenomenon being worshiped is 'God' where only hatred is cast toward the true God, who is chained in hell. (Thus it would appear that the populous of earth has been tricked into a role reversal via the actual Devil) The Devil is still envious that God had such a large role in the society of earth hence '“God! Why do the millions worship you instead of I?' However because the Devil has replaced God (but has done so so that the populous of earth is unaware) he must be assigned the title 'God'. He is not able to rein over with his original title. He is envious that his actual name is not in use.

    This is probably tricky to understand.

    Regardless this track is absolutely interesting and I love listening to it.

    If anyone has seen Spirited Away, I associate the importance of 'names' in such a way as they do in the movie.

    General CommentEnslaved God, I hadn't thought about that. Of course, since he addresses him as God. Haha.

    Whenever I listened to it, it seemed like they were a prisoner of Satan of some sort, trapped in hell.
    Then i'd get confused at the end about them having scales and wanting revenge on the Earth.

    Really interesting piece though, I agree.

    General CommentMmmm. Well I figured...
    "Space Transmission"...
    so maybe...
    Idk? Some supreme ruler of whatever planet is who's keeping the speaker hostage, && maybe the prisoner used to be human, but some aliens abducted him && experimented on him to make him some mass weapon of destruction && thats why he's all scaly, && thats also why the guy who talked to the prisoner said he would return to earth again... to destroy it?....

    && YES! Creepy! I still get goosebumps listening to this. Especially that effect when the voice alternates coming out through the left then right ear piece one at a time.

    && Hi Corey. xD

    General CommentOh, and also the ending would appear that God is upset with the fact that 'his' humans so readily betrayed him and were so easily lied to. I think he is upset with the gullible nature of his creations.
