Behemoth – Ov Fire And Void lyrics

I the Sun ov man
The offspring ov the stellar race
My halo fallen and crushed upon the earth
That I may bring balance to this world

I son ov perdition
From sheer nothingness transgressed
Unto the highest self – to utmost freedom
To explore the starry nature ov my rage

I pulse ov existence
The law ov nature undenied
I hold the torch ov Heraclites
So I can shake the earth and move the suns

I divine Iconoclast
Injecting chaos into my veins
With life accepted
With pain resurrected
Is the embrace ov god in man profound

The joy ov a dawn
The ecstasy ov dusk
Nourished have I this karmic flow
Where great above meets great below
Let it be written!
Let it be done!
Scattered I walk towards the fractured light

    Neither of you are correct. This song, in blunt terms, is about Lucifer. Satan has an astrological connection with the "sun of man", Jupiter. Lucifer as the subject of the song would also explain the reference to Lucifer's origins as an angel at the left hand of the Christian God. Draakdier's analysis of that specific line was also incorrect. Satan brings balance to the world of man through his "evil" influence, because before his involvement with the human race, those able to conceive the concept of evil were Lillith, God and other creations of his that were inhuman. Perdition you can look up for yourself. Satan most definitely transgressed from nothingness, in more than a couple senses, and came unto his highest self by finding true freedom outside of the domain of "God". This song doesn't have much of anything to do with Babylonian paganism. The Heraclitus (a Greek philosopher) reference plays with the idea of misanthropy, not paganism or false religion or anything of that sort. Satan is an iconoclast of divine origin and the pulse of existence in that, after his clash with "God" and subsequent banishment from heaven, he became that which balanced "nature", as I explained before.

    From what I've seen of this album concept (which as you've seen in the last two involved egyptian paganism *demigod*, and eastern indian paganism *the apostasy*) this one in particular involves a concept of babylonian paganism. Therefore you can see the imageries in this (i. E. Heraclites reference) and it perceives to me as another empowering song (like "at the left hand ov god") saying "I am an angel fallen from grace, willing to bring balance to this world corrupted by the lies of false religion". Yeah, a lot of babylonian paganism that I don't wish to bother listing, I'll leave it to someone else. For the record, despite the slight disappointments such as the album art not behemoth-like and the fact that nergal is not producing this album, from what I've heard from this the album will be guaranteed to not be too shabby, but lets hope that is dark and brutal like behemoth has and should be for this aeon and the next ones to come.
