Paradise Lost – Shades Of God lyrics

The fire is gone, a time to search and then replace
I'll never know just how the blind can lead the way

They search for faith,
It shows the way... It leads the way
The distant smile, banished denial, no more denial

Are you the one who tries to send me to the grave
I cannot know who deals resent who deals the pain

Weak search for faith
A path to take, you tread in vain
The distant smile, banished denial, no more denial

    The song displays how god is everywhere: omnipresent and omnipotent. Besides existing in our prayers and reigning over the world's balance of good and evil, god can also be felt and found in a blind man's walk to his destination. The song portrays that man can seek for faith and purity without his sight if he has confidence. He would be lead the path to god. This song, therefore sings its way into the melody of a "shade of god" telling us that god can be found everywhere with just a little effort.
