Alone without himself
War between him and the day
Need someone to blame
In the end, little he can do alone

People are afraid of what they cannot understand. If you look hard enough you'll find the amaranth, the white flower of good in an odd or negative situation.

It is about the underdogs, symbolized by an archangel Gabriel.
Baptised with a perfect name = Gabriel, holy warrior, man of God, strength from God etc. Baptism was not done before christianity started, so this cannot refer to Lucifer, contrary to what other interpretations often assume.
Music video also shows a falling drop of angel blood which is caught by a boy (future underdog, hidden amaranth). This is also a symbol associated directly with Gabriel in Koran (The Clot).

it is quite good, besides it is something they call aria (something as hildegarde or something?)

I feel like the meaning of this song represents fear of anything unknown or unfamiliar. And the tendency to destroy those things feared or misunderstood.
