And you may tremble before Hell's gates
You may watch as the heavens fall
And you may slight the hand of Fate
You may heed the siren's call

And you may reach every golden shore
Witness repent in the heathen
And you may dance in the sands of the war
You may sleep in the cradle of Eden

Betrayed your prophets
Dead seeds buried deep
An army of none
We'll prey on the weak

And you may walk through the river run dry
You may strike down the giant with stone
And you may never again speak a lie
Confess every sin and atone

And you may drink from the infidel's blood
As his civilization collapses
You may rejoice in the cleanse of the flood
And stare into the face of apocalypse

Betrayed your prophets
Dead seeds buried deep
An army of none
We'll prey on the weak

You will not comprehend
Or find words that will describe
The will of God and man
Until you watch someone die

Betrayed your prophets
Dead seeds buried deep
An army of none
We'll prey on the weak

    I believe this is about how our fate is already chosen and no matter what we do, we can't change it. Some are destined to be evil and others are not.

    On the line "betrayed your prophets", i'm guessing that means that the priest and monks and such say that you can change but even if you do, your fate will never be unbound as it may be here, but not in the afterlife.

    "dead seeds buried deep" makes me think that this is a symbol to saying that we're basically like a dead seed buried deep in the ground, we're not gonna go anywhere from our current course. It's like we're a train of fate locked on to the unbreakable rails of life and death.

    "you will not comprehend
    Or find words that will describe
    The will of god and man
    Until you watch someone die"

    That appeals to me as him basically saying that "god" has given up on saving us and well is just going to let us carry on downhill.

    i think this song is about how although all men are created equal and although in our lifetimes we share and experience beautiful things amongst each other, at the end of the day it is buried in our instincts and souls to become greater or lesser than other men through the actions we take and that we, even in small, unconsciously noticed ways we are destined to slowly destroy each other.
