Shepherd of Fire Lyrics

Let's take a moment and break the ice
So my intentions are known
See I have pity in watching you suffer
I know the feeling of being damned alone
I've got a story book of my own

Don't you see I am your pride
Agent of will, bearer of...

    This song is supposed to make you feel like you are being dragged down to Hell. The beginning is the sound of a fire. It's about the devil. "I know the feeling of being damned alone" Satan was damned to Hell. "I have a storybook of my own" I feel like he's trying to downplay the Bible. The devil was damned because of his pride. "Won't tell you who not to be" Christianity has a way of condemning people for various reasons (ie. sexual orientation) and he's saying here he won't do that.

    The song I think it's about Jesus not Satan he led the Israelites out of Egypt a fire by night hence the lyric shepherd of fire. Christians should be careful not to judge too quickly. Jesus is the only one that willing took upon himself the shame,guilt, lust, and all others sins that the lyrics state when he went to the cross. He is the only one that accepts you as you are and can give you paradise and you don't have to do anything but believe he did all those things for you and you are safe. So for me I would believe that the writer is speaking as Jesus. Very well written. I like that it makes you think.

    this song is about satan and how he knows how it feels to be damned and left by God,(non christians) also that u can worship him and ''promise you paradise'' there no need to serve on your knees. just sell your soul and join his army against God.
