Black Sabbath: Spiral Architect Meaning
No tags, suggest one.
Spiral Architect Lyrics
selling me their time
Child of god sitting in the sun
giving peace (or piece)of mind
Fictional seduction on a black snow sky
sadness kills the superman, even fathers cry
Of all the things I value most of all

Its deeper than that. The meaning of the song is actually controling the D.N.A, the being before it actually born, thus playing the role of god.

This song is one of Ozzies' many "hidden message" songs about (contrary to popular belief), his love of God,as most of his songs, if you really listen to the lyrics, are leading away from "darkness" to light,an aspect which I aspecially love about Sabbath.You are drawn to the pagan "Black Sabbath" iconic general mysticism,and once your into Iommis' riffs, you start listening to the lyrics, to find that, as a whole, the Sabbath crew are generally,all around conservatively solid moralistic band.I know there are some exceptions to this, but as a whole, thats what I've always loved about these guys with the EVIL METAL SOUND,yet God fearing lyrics.

It makes me think of the Tower of Babel. People trying to take power and knowledge to change the world instead of living for and seeing the good in life the way God made it. The architects will try to get you to see things their way(eyes of celluloid=film; on a black snow sky=TV) but in the end when we reach to far, and the world is doomed for trying to improve God's world everyone will pay.

I’ve always interpreted this song as being about the end of life, and in particular how one person is on the verge of death, but has no fear in dying as he/she have lived a long, successful life, always holding their happy memories in mind before they peacefully pass.

First time hearing this song by Black Sabbath, out of Sabbath Bloody Sabbath album, felt it was awesome in lament back then and up to today's time about [ a child of god, Jesus] in God The Father as One from the beginning that cries at times for us humans in order to enjoy the Earth that he created for us to honor him as The Creater. But in our human nature we want to enjoy the Earth and reach him by our ''false ego'' that is fooled by Satan as the ''Spiral Architect'' that builds skyscrapers of pain in fooling us to think we are reaching to feel the love of God and be like him as a creator, that is just to painful for God to see our struggle this way. Anotherwords, God cries at times when he sees us being fooled by our competitive works consciously or unconsciously to make us think one way, but practicing something else consciously or unconsciously that leads away from the true light of God on this Earth.

It's about love and inner light and oneness and the golden spiral (Fibonacci Spiral) PERIOD.
This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway

Its about how theres a bunch of evil psychos out there performing ridiculousness but I look inside myself, into my world and see that it is good.
With all the crap being fed to us by the news, with lawyers complicating simple disagreements, its hard to think that the world is inherently good. It`s humans that are the problem, not all of course, but a few, the spiral architects.

I believe it has to do with chaos theory (sorcerers of madness)and the Fibonacci numbers which form spiral patterns when used in geometry, hence the title.
