Lyric discussion by JJKelsall 

SEVERIN: "There’s a song we have called ‘Icon’ that was inspired by Dervishes getting themselves into such a state that they could put needles through their heads. Our interest in that state is a theme that runs through our work." Source: Sounds 07/03/81.

The song is about the idea of mind over body, the fact that these Dervishes can stick needles in their heads, set themselves on fire for their beliefs is truly iconic.
