Asking Alexandria – Morte Et Dabo lyrics
Morte et Dabo...
Morte et Dabo...

So he came forth and said unto me:
"Son you are forsaken"
Condemned for the sins that you live,
I offer you forgiveness. X2

Bow down before me. X2

I'll never bow to he who claims to be divine;
I'll tear down your gates with my bare fucking hands;
And burn the world that you rule over,
No matter how convinced you are you're not a god of mine;
You're not a fucking god of mine.

I never believed in you,
From what I see it was justified;
I never believed in you, in you.

This power over the masses is a gift you don't deserve;
When your blood spills, We'll drink from your skull;
You can run, You can hide.

Bitch, I'll fucking find you!
I'll tear your eyes right out of your self-righteous face.
Lord, I'll fucking find you!
I'll tear your tongue out of your rancid fucking mouth.

Heaven will, burn to the fucking ground;
Your world will crumble, and fall from the skies;
Blood will spill, and rain upon the earth;
Your reign is over, I'll wear your crown.

This is your demise;
I know you feel it in your chest.
This is your demise;
It's getting closer.
This is your demise;
I'm creeping from the depths of hell.
This is your demise;
I know where you sleep.

I never believed in you,
From what I see it was justified.
I never believed in you, in you.

What away to end the world
What away to end,
What away to end the world
With false hope in a false god.
What a way to end the world,
With false hope in you.

What away to end the world,
With false hope in a false god,
What away to end the world,
With false hope in you.

What away to end the world.
What a way to end the world.

(*Heaven Being Destroyed*)

    I aggree its from lucifers perspective for casting him down from heaven and this song makes sence theres more meaning in this if you think about it and what makes this song beutiful is how it was done in a way I believe its a song expressing the feeling of being abandoned and seeing others justify it with other s*t to make themselves feel better how would you feel if someone took someone or something valuable to you and tried saying I did it for a good cause and try to make themselves sound like they were in the right in the process and the feeling of wanting to lash out at that person knowing there is nothing you can do think about this emotion this song is a true work of art in the way it portrays many emotions.

    Morte Et Dabo was written to be the most evil, blasphemic song it could be. The only fictitious song on the record, about slaying god and tearing apart everything in the heavens. A real 'hell on earth' track. Not really much to say about it beyond that. It's fucking murderous.

    Written by Danny himself.

    I'm a christian, but I still like this song. I lsioten to it because of themusic, not the lyrics. Every one has their opinion on what theyw ant to believe. Danny did believe in god, but when he needed god most, he "wasnted there" for him, so now he doesn't. Those saying this is a song to worshit the devil, its not. If you don't believe in god, you don't belive in the devil. Its all part of the same religion. I hate when christians say they don't believe in the devil because he is bad. The devil plays a huge rol in christianity, just like god. So stfu.

    Danny has said in his interviews he doesn't believe in god because he doesn't think anyone could have created all of the world. But when asked where do you see yourself in 10 years he points down and says hell. I feel like danny maybe is involved in satanism which is no problem. I'm catholic but in todays world that barely means anything. It doesn't matter its a good song and who says he's even relating to the devil maybe he's relating it to himself.

    Song lyrics are no diff then any religious writngs. They are all writen by the hand of man. The true words of any god is only heard in the hearts of those that believe in said god. So anything you may read, about any god, should not be taken as truth by the reader unless that reader is also the writer. Its a great song, a great story. Leave it at that.

    It's from the devil's point of view. Look it up. Interviews and at the start of warped tour, they explained that. The song gives a relateable song for athiests, but the posibilities in meaning for this song are endless. It could be about justin beiber. At the end of the day its by asking alexandria. You have a coice to listen or not. I'm mormon from utah, and I love this song.

    I like every other song in this album except for this one. This song is total blasphemy. And you people that say that god never is there for you and that is ur "proof" that he isn't real, need to understand that god will not listen to you and be there for you if you do not know him as your personal savior. If you understnad and believe that he died on the cross for your sins and call out in prayer to him that you know you are a sinner and to come into your life and save you, than you will truly see god work in your life. You must do that first before you expect god to hear you.

    Wooowww, I seriously never thought this band would write a song like this, I'm all about this band but this is unacceptible, I wont say what religion I am because it'll raise more conflict with others comments, but this band can do alot better n it has n at least it was jus this song, jesus died for mankind n this is how you would treat him, it doesn't surprise me.

    In my opinion, this song, or any song for that matter, can mean whatever the listerner wants it to mean. This song's meaning can change depending on how one sees things. Unfortunately, most religious people, more specifically christians and catholics, always see the negative things first, which is weird considering the fact that the bible talk about not judging anything based its cover. Sometime you just have to look deeper into lyrics to decipher what it really means. Subliminal messages are used by great lyricists. They don't necessarily have to address everything they want to say directly because they would want the listener to appreciate it the way he/she wants to.
    I'm a catholic by baptism. I was raised in a catholic family. I even went to catholic school from pre-k to 8th grade. I honestly don't know what particular reason made me change my mind about catholicism but I know it has something to do with the fact that I want proof. I want proof that god does exist. The bible isn't proof. It contradicts itself too much. The part where it says "i never believed in you, from what i see it was justified" is true for me. It may not be for other people but for me it is. I put my faith in "god" for years but nothing came out of it. I was taught that "a family that prays together, stays together" but it was the opposite. My mom and I always argue about praying and going to church. It's the main reason why we're not in good terms. This song speaks my thoughts about religion for the most part. Interpret it however you please to. If your faith in god is really that strong then you wouldn't anything, much less a blasphemous song, offend you. Why would you be offended by something you don't believe is right? Just think about that.

    This song is lyrically amazing, and this band is amazingly talented. I loved seeing them live; nothing compares. I don't understand why everyone thinks it's "bashing christianity. " not once does it say "we the people of aa hate christianity" within the lyrics of this song.
    It is simply telling the story of the conflict between satan and god when satan was cast out of heaven. So, can everyone just calm down? Why must you be so uptight about religion? Religion is all up to one's own interpretation and opinions. This song is great, regardless. Appreciate it.

    I will agree that this isn't a religious song, and I see why people consider it blasphemy. But that doesn't make aa a bad band. They have the right to write any song with whatever lyrics they please. It might not be a song about them not believing in god; it could be from a different point of view, like some said satan, or just another person. It's whatever you want to believe it is. Either way, they write what they want to write, because they're sure doing a pretty great job at it. If you don't want to listen to it, then don't. Simple as that.

    I liked the songs before asking alexandria but the day that I learned of their songs siginificado stop listening because many of their songs are about profanity talk about alcohol, drugs and s**, worst of all that is now a controversy especially a song called'morte et dabo'when many people do not really know what the signinficado of this song, a song where the vocalist sings worsnoop dany like the devil saying in his song pure blasphemy against god, sad that a band that has a very good rate of damage with their crap u___u lyrics for their songs.

    To properly understand a story, you require both perspectives.
    This is just the perspective of lucifer, a fallen angel who later became condemned to hell and is now known as satan, the devil, 666 and all sorts of names.
    I'm not religious, but I can understand why some would see this as blasphemy, however you need to understand that this is just a perspective of a story.
    If we don't have the freedom to understand information of both 'evil' and 'good' then humanity is declining a story that we made ourselves. Its like saying a

    By the way they are not bashing god they are bashing those who claim to be god I have the opportunity to meet danny (lead singer of asking alexandria) and the band and they said they where bashing those who claim to be god and I really enjoyed talking t them and actually hanging out with them. :) and the meaning is "the gift of death" it is from lucifer's (satins) perspective. So please don't bash this song I am a believer and I love god and I'm so glad that I have had this opportunity to write this for you :) thanks.

    I'm a hardcore aa fan and was terribly upset when I read the lyrics to this song. I'm a christian and at the first time I read the lyrics this song seemed very satanic and evil, but after I though it over and read many other people's interprtation's I believe this song is about tearing down false god's and that they'll never believe in anything other the themselves, so it has a good message in ver confusing words. And morte et dabo means "i will give you death" so don't fight over the meaning anymore, thanks for reading(:

    Hey guys take it from a college latin student, this could be translated several different ways (as is the case with most latin phrases or sentences, being that the word order in the sentence does not matter) Deinara did an excellent job of explaining; even if aa had only a rudimentary grasp of the latin language, the most logical translation of that would be "and i will give death" though that is incorrect. Basically they just wanted to get the song out there with a title that coincided well with the abstract sort of thinking represented in the song, the translation of the title doesn't really matter as long as you understand the message behind the song. Which judging by the thread posts most of you failed to see past the brutality of the lyrics to the deeper meaning, the song is in no way satanistic or even pagan; though it is anti-christian.

    Everyone, Morte et Dabois Latin indeed, I have Latin in school btw, et means also, dabo is the futur of give, morte is death. I will also give you death!
    That's what it means, in other words, 'i will kill you'.
    Ben said in their latest interview that it isn't really their thoughts about christians etc. It was just something that they thought that would be cool. Their other songs also don't have this subject. There not satanic or something like that. Its just a one song subject project what they thought that would be cool. And it turned out to be one of the best songs off the album! Its no big deal.
    Every song by them is awesome btw, going to see them the 30th of april!

    I love this song so much, and I really don't think it should be taken as an offensive song. To me, he's saying that he doesn't like when people shove their religion and other beliefs in other people's faces. When he says "I'll never bow to he who claims to be divine" I think its a way of saying that he's sick of people trying to make it seem like God is perfect and created this perfect haven, when really, the world is pretty messed up. That's just how I take the song. I don't think of it as a big "screw you" to anyone who believes in God.

    I know my opening lyrics and two other lines are off but its the best I cud do untill the album comes out: P
    Anyway, I'm sure its obvious the song is about athiesm, or atleast the rejection of god.
    The first few lines hes speaking from the point of veiw of god and the chorus is explaining how well, he doest believe. My guess is dabo means god, so morte et dabo is death of god?

    You people are seriously deep in satans trap. The bind is awesome, yes, but the fact that they diss my god and offend my religion, that's not cool. Doesn't it make sense to you athiests that there's a god, you are all angry @ him as you can see in the song, but you don't realize that he is there. Really?! Come on, you can't be mad @ nothing. That's just being blind. Anyway, when the day comes and god comes for his children, you will realize what was true and what not. Take care.

    I don't think it has anything to do with satan, like most people say when you oppose god. I think it's about having a leader that we all prey to, but we can't be sure it exists. It's also about the radical demand for people to follow this leader, and that they don't want to follow this leader. So whilst it may have direct links to 'lord' I don't think it's purely religious. It may be a metaphor for other leaders, eg. Government. Etc.
    Either way. Awesome song!

    To te idiot who asked to point out a flaw in the bible pretty much every biblical story can be proven wrong with modern science adam and eve for example the story cut of course goes they have two kids a boy and a girl then they have kids and so on and so forth already that can't happen they would have been brother and sister with the same dna and when 2dnas match during mitosis a mutation happens which would cause likely death if not terrible difformities noah's ark I'm not even gunnar go into that old fart just simply did not build a boat to house 2 of every specifies on the planet wake up gods not real.

    I am also a christian, and do really enjoy this song, but when I first looked at the lyrics I was horrified, but reading other peoples and looking at it more, I realize that it isn't more agenst god, but more a story, although god most likley dosnt like it because of the language, I do think it is awesome sounding, just like aa's other songs, but it also depends on how you listen to it.

    This song is about killing god, and do you no what hes right. False hope in a false god, there is no almighty one. If there was then everything that you "believers" preach about is wrong. Oh he loves everyone if he loved everyone why do people feel hated at some point in there lives and why does no one care about certain people. Why does he never show "the way" its false hope. Grow up and get in the 21st century, where the world doesn't revolve around a false god.

    Obviously this song is about how he dislikes Christians for them doing things and claiming it is an act of God. People are just humans, just because they claim to be doing God's will make it so. I personally am not buying this album, because I am a Christian and theres no way I can listen to "heaven will burn to the ground" and not feel bad about it. My two friends and girlfriend are aso christians who listen to this kind of music and they refuse to buy it because of this song. Oh well Alexandria. Still can't deny you are talented.
