about

In this song we find the main character has been confronted with the voice of his father inside his mind, becoming a sort of second personality. The boy begins to lose his mind, seeing all of the people from his childhood that taunted him or put him down. They've long since been dead, and are begging the boy for help. They're begging to be relieved of their torment in Hell. The main character tries to separate reality from his mind playing tricks on him, but fails and ultimately decides that he will not help those that put him down. He finds that they deserve the punishment that they're receiving, including his father. When the boy finds his father in Hell he personally vows to ensure that he suffers for making the boy's life hell.

lyrics

Death walks forward, taking you from this realm
Creatures from the nether extend their hands, seeking comfort
"What are you thinking? Will you help the fallen?
Bringer of light, will you guide us home?
Do you believe in us, as we believe in you?"
There is something coming, I fear for our lives.

Won't you help us to become whole?
Chosen one can't you cleanse my soul?
The monsters you see, imaginary.
Conjurations of your wildest dreams.
There is more here than you can believe.
My mind is open and remains seren.

The final judgement is drawing near
All your souls are doomed to rot for all eternity
There is nothing I can do
Sacrificing the weak will ensure that you stay at the top.
At least that's what you're used to.
Liars, deceivers, and everything between
I will ensure that you meet your maker, that you answer for your sins.

Won't you help us to become whole?
Chosen one can't you cleanse my soul?
The monsters you see, imaginary.
Conjurations of your wildest dreams.

This is where you repent for your actions
I will make sure that you answer for this
I will watch over you and make you beg for mercy.
