The Shattered God Lyrics
Success just hasn't been your friend
You live a lie high as the sky
This taste like iron blood and greed
Tell us of what you'll never be
I won't ask why, just let it die
Sleeping tight in your insanity

its about lucifer's struggle... lazarus, moses, anubis, oden, poseidon, arthur... various legendary shattered men who became kings after living lives of humility... shattered in childhood for not allowing themselves to be scorned without applying the golden rule, every time they were struck, they struck back enough and lived lives alone because they were literally physically haunted by their past... stalked by their "family" that scorned them that didn't have anything better to do than to try to kill something they couldn't kill themselves by turning their surroundings against them.. its happening again in nolaw... nolaw has been declared a cannibal zone

I think this song is about someone with a Narcissistic disorder.

I see it as, someone made themselves to high. Like they got to rich, or to perfect, but then fell down. They crashed landed, and sold everything to get back up to where they are. Maybe even ther souls.

Kinda about someone who was too self absorbed and prideful and eventually it bit them in the ass.

I see it as a song about how someone has this pretentiously grandiose view of themselves, yet being ignorant to how others actually view them. It's definitely a "Screw You!" type of song and there's definitely a few people I'd like to dedicate this song to.
