I could drag you to my chambers
And strip you naked in darkness
I could pull your fingernails out one by one
And rape you till you find no hope

I could rip your guts out
And let you watch me
Sacrifice your unborn child
I could leave you to starve
And even bring you to total silence
For once

For I find no pleasure in your physical pain
I want your Christian soul to crumble

Your fucking soul

When I have seen your church go up in flames
And you are weeping I will laugh
When I have seen you mourn over loved ones
I will feel bliss when your mortal soul is in ruins
I will grin in the shadows
For that gives me pleasure

Tormenting a Christian soul

    General CommentI think you guys are taking this just a bit too seriously. This is black metal folks... the horror genre of music. I doubt the artists really worship satan and just because they have hatred for christianity does not make them satanists. However I'm aware that they use satanic imagery and such for aesthetic purpouses.

    I question the intelligence of anyone who believes in any god or gods or who worships any devil. You would be nothing more than an inverse christian. Islam, Christianity, Judaism ect are all alike in that they are man-made. fairy tales and myths to explain the unknown. Eventually mandkin will grow out of its infancy and discard just idiotic beliefs.

    To to the person who asked "What if your wrong? what if christians are right?" Well the likelyhood of there being an afterlife is so very slim that it is hard to take it seriously however if there was and it turned out the christian deity was true... I'd rather burn in hell than spend an eternity in heaven serving such a tyrant.

    However there is another side of the coin you are missing. What if you are wrong? what if you are worshipping the wrong god? Everytime you pray your just pissing him off more and more. I mean the safest bet would to be neutral, to be an atheist.

    Anyways great song... but dont look too deeply into it.

    General CommentAlthough I'm a Christian (though a very liberal one), I love this song, and this band. I don't care much for the lyrics, but I'm not going to be a pussy and let my fear of Satanic lyrics get in the way of my love for great, accomplished, awesome pieces of musical genius such as this song.

    General CommentHahahahaha I really love this site.

    And I escpecially love all these people who are commenting this song... it is always as amusing.

    The meaning of this song, so that you FINALLY understand that this is not plain shit:

    The "satanist" tells us all those things he/she could do with a christian to torment the christian. But the "satanist" won't do that, because he/she doesn't find pleasure in that. Instead, the "satanist" will remain calm in the shadows - he/she doesn't even need to touch the christian with one finger, or anything - and laugh at the poor christian when he find him/herself in trouble.

    You may not like what it says, but it is still a good way to express "don't start killing your enemies, stand in the shadows and behold as they get ruined psychically, and then laugh at their misfortune".

    If we talk about the musical part, it is a great song, symphonic black metal \m/

    General Comment.....
    I didn't listen to this song yet, but the lyrics are sick. As far as I know, Dimmu Borgir is mostly writing these songs for image, and probaly because of their religion.
    I think it's a really shitty that people want to spit and throw dirt on other peoples religions as many people say.
    I say shame on Dimmu Borgir that they come up with an image like this. It's really unnecessary.
    Normal humanbeings respect other people and their opinions. At least try as much as they can.

    I'm something between an atheist and a christian, and I say satanism is bad, but I would NEVER say "fuckin' satanic", because they have an own opinion, which I respect, but my opinion is that satanism shall be stopped.

    And unholy_apparition: maybe if it was supposed to be a slap in the christians face, but don't worry, christians won't care that much about you, I hope you can sleep well now =)
