"Witch Image" as written by and Suzzane Lyn Shinn Thomas Arthur Dalgety....
You have never stood this close to where you want to be
You have always waded in the shallows between me and the deep blue sea

You'd never want me to appear
You never want this to be over
You never want it to reach out to the edge of time

While you sleep in earthly delight
Someone's flesh is rotting tonight
Like no other to you
What you've done you can not undo

I have always kept you closer than you have known
I am riding in the shadows behind you on a pale white horse

You 'd never want me to appear
You never want this to be over
Someone's flesh is rotting tonight
Like no other to you
What you have done you can not undo

While you sleep in earthly delight
Still your soul will suffer this plight
Like your father in hell
What you've sold you can not unsell

While you sleep in earthly delight
Someone's flesh is rotting tonight
Like no other to you
What you have done you can not undo

While you sleep in earthly delight
Still your soul will suffer this plight
But like a mother would save
Her own child from digging a grave

    General CommentI think this song is about a pope during the middle ages that sells favors to people in order to get to heaven.

    In the beginning verse the guy had never touched real power and I believe sells his soul to gain that. When he becomes the Pope he sells indulgences to gain wealth and more power - remember at this time the Pope was probably the most powerful person on earth.

    This person is selling out others for his own benefit, but at the same time fears death creeping in on him to collect on his promise, but does not want this to end.
