about

Matt:

From my own perspective this song is about a reaper who feasts on the souls of ignorant people who are stubborn, the type of people who are extremely cocky, overconfident and arrogant thinking that they are God's gift and that they are untouchable, therefore supreme to everyone else. The reaper gets so deep into the mind of these people and drives them to a point where they feel completely worthless and just ending it all. These lyrics were enjoyable to write and what I think is great is that the subject matter of the song can be interpreted in a lot of different ways so that aspect of it made it even more interesting. How I've written it could possibly be deemed metaphorical to describe something totally different to the perspective of the reader.

Thank you

lyrics

I
I am the reaper
I've come to feast on the souls
Of the ignorant...

...and the shallow

I Bestow nothing
Other than barbaric misfortune

On the weak minded
And cruel
Placing them into a cesspool
Filled with liquids of guilt
Now they're exposed
To my unquenchable

Mercilessness and hunger
A saturated appetite
For their manipulative
Soul beings

Establishing their "dominance"
But with that dominance
Comes arrogance

And stubbornness
Only able to see the world
Through their own Rose tinted glasses

Acceptance
Is never part of their nature
Their decadence
Will only ever come back To taint their souls
Mentally placing them into a permanent chokehold

Facing the reality
Of their self inflicted situation

On behalf of the victims
Of their alienation
I shall invoke
Vengeance

Avengement
In the purest form of torture
Scarring their minds
Until they feel nothing but dead inside

Iniquity
Will rebound
Shattering their morale
As I howl
With ghoulish laughter
Torment will reach its climax
Pushing them into the depths of suicide
Possessed by the reaper of the moonlight
The triggers from their guns help them wave goodbye
To their sweet, pitiful lives
