    My favourite Symphony X song, ahaha.
    And quite possibly the best metaphors of the Catholic religion out there.
    "Bow down in the platinum maze"-The reasons for following these beliefs are vague and confusing, but they make it look appealing.
    "Twilight cathedrals spread the system plague"-Religion is spread through the Church like a disease.
    "Forging sacred thrones in the void unseen"-you do sort of drone work as a part of the Church, without really knowing the purpose, but again, you do it to "save your soul"
    "Merciless judgement in the church of the machine"-You're considered to be either saved or damned, there isn't a gray area, like how a machine doesn't think/consider situations. (It's either 0 or 1.)
