When the sun drops behind the Mountains
Never to rise again
When comes the Death of the starlit fountains
Never to shine again
Then the gardens show withered flowers
Never to bloom again
And the crops will enjoy their last harvest
Never to go again

Where love is gone
It has begun
The dark clouds from above
He came to claim his crown

Hear the weeping of a thousand widows
In this time of war
Where powermongers expand their wealth
Fall victim to the evil's lore
Hear the mourners come and pray
To bury their beloved
Who lost their lives in senseless wars

Where love is gone
It has begun
The dark clouds from above
He came to claim his crown

It's not the evil from down below
Never to rise again
Which creeps and lurks under the snow
Never to shine again
It's not of Satan's will we fall
Never to bloom again
It's due to the evil in us all
Never to go again

Where love is gone
It has begun
The dark clouds from above
He came to claim his crown

In our time where love is gone
The harvest of souls it has begun

    This song is clearly about something or another; maybe it's George W. Bush. -The first stanza is describing the death of the world after nuclear holocaust, the direct result of World War III. -The second is describing our present situation -- the violence in the middle east, American imperialism, and the Religious Reich attempting to assert Biblical values on others. -The third is about the Abrahamic religions (Christianity, Islam, Judaism) who spread as if harvesting souls, crushing opposition. In the end, the fog of war blankets all. The devil himself, then, takes advantage of the conflict between these groups and uses his influence over hatred to gain control. -The fourth and final stanza, then, is a warning that Satan is not the cause of the turmoil -- it is our own hatred and ignorance that brings about our ultimate destruction. Satan only capitalizes on what we ourselves have done.

    Clearly, I just pulled all of that out of my ass and it's probably all wrong. I mentioned Bush because, you know, that's edgy. Maybe it'll get some conversation going.

    The last bit's pretty good, though.

    Why would an Austrian band write a song about George W. Bush? I think it's just about how bad stuff happens to good people, but it's still us who create the bad stuff.

    Religious christian people blame satan (the devil) and non-christians for all the evil things we do, but the evil really lies in all of us. (In my opinion satan is the part of human nature that makes us fulfill our desires and being selfish, doing as we wish, not considering that it hurts other people.)
