Becoming The Archetype – Dichotomy lyrics


Initially they rationalized with futile speculations
Which brought about their ultimately fatal calculations
They sewed their own eyes shut
To protect them from the light
Closed the doorway of their minds
Barred and sealed it tight
Their foolish hearts were darkened
Their vacant minds deceived
The lies that they exchanged for truth
Became all that they believed
They exchanged the incorruptible
For the image of fallen man
Worshiped creature rather than creator
The image rather than his hand

The heavens wait in silence
For the coming of the end
As man perfects his own imperfection
Destruction closes in

In the grave they chose to make their beds
Now all that they've created
Comes crashing down, down, down upon their heads
Death is waiting

    Though I agree with Adreniline's meaning. This song has obvious inspiration from The Tower of Babel as well, which he surprisingly overlooked. And strangely I need a minimum of fifty words, which is senseless considering I could spam. But I will say this song is amazing overall. Becoming The Archetype is still one of my favorite bands to this day.

    This is an amazing song, and part of that is where the song is based out of (read Romans 1: 18-32). Though it is based mostly on the first part of the passage, it talks about the degrading of man and the turning from God - one section (sentence) of this song is taken directly from the scripture found there ('Their foolish hearts were darkened' - Romans 1: 21c).
    I applaud this band for their willingness to write songs with a strong Christian backbone and for shining the light of Christ.
