The prehistoric golden age of man
A unified energy of infinite expression
The harmony of one challenged by the temple of the sun
Divine taste of innocence crushed by immortal jaws
Victims of ritual seduced by the sun
Offerings of sacrifice presented to the gods
Dimensions intertwine bringing forth the struggle for dominion over Earth
The turmoil of the gods manifests a global decimation
No longer unified
Mankind bows before the temple of the sun
Widespread lies
The womb in which to catalyze the epoch
A global catastrophe
A disruption of harmony
Bringers of misery
Insurgence in the name of depravity

    General CommentThis is an interesting song, (I haven't thought deep into it) but i think it's talking about religion, but it's calling religious people Sons of Belial(Satan, Devil etc). So they're saying the religious are Satan's followers. Which i think is interesting, because the suppossed good are the true evil. This is just a guess so please correct me if I'm wrong because, there's some parts i don't understand.

    General Commentc.pettyii: Yeah, I think you're on to something.

    ImCharming: I think it's one of the other band mates.

    I don't think that this song is fully a commentary on modern religion, though. I read that the concept behind this album was the idea that aliens inhabited Earth long before humans did.

    THUS, the prehistoric men were living peacefully until the Temple of the Sun arrived (aka an alien or human faith cult (?)) and disrupted the harmony. They sacrificed many humans to their gods under the banner of the Temple of the Sun.

    Then I can only imagine that other aliens or something saw this and came to Earth in a struggle for power. Then all hell broke loose...

    ANYWAY, I love this song. It's like an epic sci-fi movie made into a song.

    General CommentI'm pretty sure a lot of this album has a lot to do with an ancient race (I'm thinking maybe the Mayans [Chichen Itza is definitely a Temple of the Sun.]) worshipping aliens basically and then screwing over all future generations in their quest for power, which they do by allowing the aliens to mingle with us, eventually leading to the destruction of the earth.

    General CommentSons of belial are non religious the believe in people themselves.
    This song is about atlanteans how there people who were split in half between the sons of the law(religious) and the sons of belial(non-religious). The belials harnessed the power of the sun and volcanic for energy source. The laws saw that as the sighn of evil. The belials were fed up with them instead of using the power source for the people they used it as a weopon which ended up destroying the island of Atlantis.

    General CommentFucking idiots. Belial is a demon. Sons of belial are his demons. They are talking about the illuminati and the future control of the NWO amongst us. There is no involvement of aliens, only demons and forever demons. Derek called him self demon carcass for a reason, not alien carcass. 2012, here we come. I know Keene's prepared, are you?

    Song Meaningspckorn is correct. As I understand it, the Sons and Daughters of Belial separated from the Children of the Law of One late in the time of Atlantis because they wished to among other things experiment with genetic modification in order to advance faster as a race. Thoth was the first to volunteer but on condition that no one else could. As their ruler, there was peace between the two groups for a long time. Thousands of years passed and wasn't really an act of evil, but once Thoth left it did gradually result in the end of Atlantis.

    The song meaning is pretty obvious if you know about this sort of thing. Belial is worshipped as a demon in modern times, but like many beings we refer to as mythological or demonic in our age, were actually walking the Earth in the time of Atlantis.

    General CommentThe song is about how very culture believed in the same general gods. Then christianity came (widespread lies) , and wiped out the esoteric knowlkedge the original population possesed. O, guessing in the sense of this album, the aliens are responsible for the birth of christian domination.

    Song Meaning"The temple of the sun" is referring to how:
    In pagan religions, they worship the sun. And the winter solstice, December 25th, is when the days begin to get longer, and the sun (the saviour) begins to "win the battle" against night (the darkness).
    Now, jesus, is CERTAINLY not the only messiah with the same "milestone characteristics"
    For example, the Egyptian god "Horus" and the roman god "Attis" were both born on December 25 by immaculate conception, performed miracles such as healing the sick, and walking on water, were crucified and buried for three days, and resurrected.
    The cross with a fixed circle is not a symbol of Christianity, but an old pagan symbol used in the zodiac. The cross is the Centre of the zodiac chart, and the circle represents the sun.

    So it's more accurate to say "temple of the son" the faceless is just using this line as a blanket term for organized religion.
