    11 - Track concept debut album from Yesterday's Saints

    It is the story of Satan throughout time: from his desire to usurp the throne of God to his modern infiltration of all mankind, with the indication that everyone on Earth is now a descendant of Satan. The album opens with a flashback: what corresponds chronologically to a third song is actually listed as the first track. The story then resumes from its chronological beginning starting on track 2. The final song alludes to two theories of the universe: the one that asserts we are all a figment of a man's dream; and multi-dimensional membrane theory, where the "Big Bang" was/will be the result of an intersection/collision between our current dimensional membrane and a parallel one. As a result of either theory, whether "the man" waking up or the collision between dimensional membranes, the end of days is the outcome. Time is then reset again by the man falling asleep again or the explosion of another "Big Bang".

about

Characters: Satan and St. Michael. The war in heaven between Satan and his rebel angels against St. Michael and the remaining angels. Satan loses and is cast from Heaven to guard gates of Hell.

Although this track is actually track three in chronology it is here as the concept is written in flash-back format similar to Paradise Lost.

lyrics

I won’t bow down to an inferior being
I won’t give up my place so high
One step from God
One step from grace
One step from worship by the entire human race
Turn to fire fuel the hate
Release the hoard on heaven’s gate
God your god fear me now
Through your field I will plow
Devouring chains you cast upon me
Stand up now and bring your army
To trouble holy rests heaven casts thee out
Of god you were made to be free
From freedom you fight to deceive
Ravishing mountains and touch the sky
Fire also burns in my eyes
Power of God swings my sword
Cower and hide you venomous hoard
The steel I swing above my head
A thunderous cloud and a vengeful sting
Rape your flesh saw your bones
Drag you down to a hell you’ve never known
To trouble holy rests heaven casts thee out
Of god you were made to be free
From freedom you fight to deceive
Drag me out with demon seed
Leave the earth for me to feed
Banished to guard the gates of hell
And roam the earth where the ancients fell
Casting darkness across the earth
Etching sin upon your birth
Sing the praise of angels higher
The rest I drag to my pit of fire
