Wiltered. (please read even if no comment. this one is tad personal)
 
this song is somewat personal in a few ways to me, of how i see dogma's in the modern world, and my view on how they affect, and also how i feel they reflect onto myself. there are 2 quotes directly from the satanic bible that i added (both in Chapter one of the Book of Satan, right at the start) because i felt it just added the icing to it. i felt that most of my meanings in my lyrics dont get through to everyone, so instead of trying to explain it in the song, i did this so i could keep my original writing style, as well as embed the meaning. so even if you just read it, and dont leave a comment will mean a lot to me....but also...comments would be dandy ;) i love having input. thanks.

feel: morbid angel x destroyer 666 x Opeth x bal-sagoth

bold text - said in a deeper voice (like many gothic black metal bands of today)

-Wiltered

Leading the blind
All forming a line
Cradle the wicked
Endorsing their fear

Your harlot hand, renders the lamens
Lamens gather fathom fate
Their ignorance brings your bliss
Centuries of deciet! Lies!

"For I stand forth to challenge the wisdom of the world;
To interrigate the laws of man and of God"


Walking through the fields afar
I feel the cold wind hitting my face
The cobra was not that of evil
But it was that of man
Doctrines of the Covenant forged
Fraudulent sounds whispered in my ear

Lying celabent in virgin snow
Leaves spiraling to the ground below
In this fall all existance will cease
Growing dark bitter cold aches my thoughts
Your garden wilters, your blossum die
Dejections woe, slipping through the gate

Melodic vices contain the way
Said in a tongue, where all have to pay

False intentions were so meek
Instead they depict all bleak
Abrogate all you've done
Defiling the external, revealing the inner truth

"No creed must be accepted upon the authority of a devine nature
Religions must be put to the question
No moral dogma must be taken for granted - no standard measurement deified
There is nothing inherently sacred about the moral codes

LIKE THE WOODEN IDOLS OF LONG AGO
THEY ARE THE WORK OF HUMAN HANDS
AND WHAT MAN HAS MADE
MAN CAN DESTROY!"


Melodic vices contain the way
Said in a tongue, where all have to pay

False intentions were so meek
Instead the depict all bleak
Abrogate all you've done
Defiling the external, revealing the inner truth

Verbal coma written in poison
Spilling the blood of the beholder
Possesion of purest key
Forumlate hypocrisy of the most high!

its... sacreligious. i dont know. thats the only word i can think that describes it. or maybe i fucked up the meaning.

morbid_death 2002-10-06 13:12

its sacreligous in some extent. but the main, key message was about being in a society where anything outside the main religious churches is not accepted, and considered 'evil' and 'fuck-ed up'. whether that be christian, islam, buddism, etc (being the accepted). i've included (like always) more messages and on multiple levels.

mrweijia 2002-10-06 13:14

well, i undertsand it alot more now that i read your introductory paragraph.

Lord Malphas 2002-10-07 02:37

great lyrics man !

well ... I don't understand a lot of words there ... you have a very good vocabulary

leper 2002-10-07 05:22

i like it

memnoch 2002-10-07 05:52

I didn't like it that much. I couldn't even finish it.......i got really bored by the 3rd paragraph.

The vocabulary is very good, but there's too many metaphors and such....unless you're the writer himself (you), you get kind of lost in what you're trying to get at. It feels like it takes you a whole paragraph just to say one word.

That method of writing is good, but only good when it's not overdone. (my opinion at least) Keep in mind i don't like black metal......and i understand that most black metal lyrics are all like this......so yeah.

morbid_death 2002-10-07 07:16

ye, thats cool man, at least you being completely honest and thats wat i love :beer:


although, posting lyrics is rather pointless..i just do it because i enjoy writing them, but there is absoloutly no way none of the writers on this forum would be able to have their work fully have their work appreciated without the aid of music.


but thanks anyway dude ;) wat you said you didnt like about it was actualy wat i aimed to achieved...if people can understand too easily wat its about then as far as i'm concerned i've failed.

It just depends how we all write our stuff. I like to have good vocabulary and writing in my songs too, but personally i'd rather try and make the person relate to whatever i'm talking about so that they can understand what state of mind i was in and why the song means so much.
