Follow paths paved with nothing
This ground is filled with the dead
The haste is brought with the force which it is made
Beyond all hope this is true
Shores expire over horizons
Shores expire over horizons
Waves bury our fathers and consume all that we have loved
Look into their eyes with the flawless feelings that you fake
Prepare for the tides of annihilation
Annihilation
Open your eyes to what you
Have been breathing upon
Open your eyes shadows are all we have and they whisper lies (whisper)
Open your eyes shadows are all we have and they whisper lies (whisper lies)
Blood will be our only escape
These arms bring strength
Behold what we have
Blood will be our only escape
These arms will bring strength

    No man, this is correct. This is actually Arms of the Messiah.
    Miss May I lyrics are full of the godless and agnostic themes, and for me this song refers to the (subjective, for some) fact that men believes in something (God) that's almighty and merciful only to relieve their weak natural condition. Saying "These arms will bring strength" and, at the same time, "Open your eyes, shadows are all we have and they whisper lies" reaffirms this. In other words, it's saying that it's better to believe in God although we doubt his existence or maybe that faith is better than not having it...

    I don't know if this is a dis on god. Personly i think that if a band has to dis on god be be blaphomus to get attention then that is sad and not what music is or what its ment for its only trying to increase fan base and if it is against god i am in this day in age there are more people looking to rebel and if its dising god then what more rebelion do you need?
