"Thanatos" as written by and Anja Plaschg....
Glaucoma on our eye
Plague to weather
Until they run dry

Ages of delirium, curse of my oblivion

I swell without a scar to end the time
A shell without a star at the end of time

Watch the bend of my wandering
of hunting with the lightning gun

Tremor on my heaven son
Tares above my kingdom come

Torn open tomb
I fell in your cold fission bomb
I fell in your war

Ages of delirium, curse of my oblivion
Tremor on my heaven son
Tares above my kingdom come

    General CommentReally impressive...
    (Tanathos - death instinct)
    This song is about dying, about leaving everything behind us. Nothing is permanent.

    General CommentThanatos is Modern Greek for "death", but in Ancient Greek, "Thanatos" referred to a figure in mythology. While Hades was the god of death and the afterlife, Thanatos WAS death, personified. He usually stands for a peaceful, non-violent death, unlike Hades.

    But even so, this song seems to be about a terrible, brutal death, given the way it's sung (and the creepy-ass music video). Also, am I the only one who sees references to Jesus' death here? "Tremor on my heaven, son. Tares above my kingdom come" seems to be an allusion to Jesus dying on the cross. And there's the "torn open tomb" line. I'm not saying this song is all about Jesus' death though, I think it's symbolizing something else.

    My InterpretationI always imagined it to be from the point of view of the personification of Death, cursing it's existence after being destroyed.
