Toni Well, there aren't words to describe the feeling I got from listening to this song... I love the chorus...I love the deep, almost impossible-to-analyse lines. I love the second last verse: "Gentlemen, he said, I don't need your organization, I've shined your shoes, I've moved your mountains and marked your cards, But Eden is burning, either brace yourself for elimination, Or else your hearts must have the courage for the changing of the guards." Man, I will always have that line in my heart. Apr 06, 2006
King of swords A pre-Christian (for Bob) apocalypse. In the last verse, peace will come, with tranquility and splendor......on wheels of fire! Fantastic. Mar 29, 2006
