The Number Six Lyrics

    What could you tell us about the song ‘The Number Six’?
    ‘The Number Six’ basically is a song about envy and it seems like today, particularly in the Internet age with all these anonymous commentators, anytime anybody does something or tries to do something with their life whether it be in music or politics or building any sort of organization even a charitable organization, there’s always some jerks on some message board tearing them down anonymously.

    The sixth deadly sin is envy and in the Middle Ages they personified each of the deadly sins in order to make them seem more scary to common people and they gave them each a demon and the sixth deadly sin envy its demon was Leviathan so “the number six / Leviathan” is just a fancy poetic Medieval way, how metal, of saying envy. If you don’t like something change it or do it better yourself, that’s what that song is basically about.
