Sisters of the way-side bide their time in quiet peace,
Await their place within the ring of calm;
Still stand to turn in seconds of release,
Await the call they know may never come.
In times of lightness, no intruder dared upon

The first interpretation may be correct but this song is literally 3 songs tied together. The middle which is slower and so cool is about Robert Plants son dying. It’s a cold stab at Jimmy Page because the lyrics ask “where was your word where was your bow?” See, they got the call while in New Orleans I think. Plant and Bonahm went straight back to England but page and jones (I might have Jones and Bohnam mixed up) stayed and partied in the America.
This prophetic song (in the middle of "In Through the Out Door" - a little reference to sodomy) was channeled by Zeppelin back in the 70s, but it is about the times we are living in right now. "Sisters by the wayside" refers to the "falling away of the church" that was predicted to happen in The Bible. "hands raised towards the sun" - refers to Sun-day worship (Sun-day= sun god Abbaddon/Appolleon). God clearly asked for the Sabbath. The whole week was rearranged to keep Christians from worshiping on the right day. "Love in halls of plenty overrun" refers to the ridiculous scene the modern church has become. Nobody is encouraged to read God's Word on their own, some man with a collar is needed to "interpret". Everyone judges. God is not glorified or even acknowledged. "Within the walls the daunting formless" = this describes demonic spirits that infest the people and the church.
"Everything was soon no sooner thought then deed" - pansexuality, animal brothels opening all over Europe, pedophilia is no longer a disorder but considered "natural", public masturbation is legal in Italy, etc. "No onest seemed to question in any way" = the whole world seems to be in some sort of trans. "The foe that threatened from the deep" is Leviathan - the serpent in the sea. "The storied hunter's eye prevails upon the land" = the eye on top of the pyramid on the American dollar bill, the cameras at all intersections, smart appliances spying on us. It refers to the eye of Horus, who was an Egyptian God.
Ok - now the good stuff: "The Word" is The Word of God, the King James Bible. "The Armour" is the "armour of God". "The seed" refers to the seed of Jacob, or Jacob's descendants, us.
We met this band and there is no way they came up with these lyrics without spiritual help.
