This song is about rose-tinted glasses. People often remember the good times but forget the bad times in a relationship and are willing to throw everything away for a shitty romance, even their supposedly beloved children. Anteros is the god of requited love and Pothos was a god that symbolized lust. Eros is another god of love.


Roses fall to the headstone,
A future written in ashes.
Fantastic flights of fancy.
Behind you lingers limbo.
Ghosts dancing in your eyes,
Darkness concealed by a shroud.
Ropes and lies bind you to the past,
The end was the only way out!

And then the worms came...

Aphrodite sheds a tear for us.
Anteros is slain by Pothos.
Eros kneels before death,
To offer his flesh to Minos!

Forever is a long time,
Too long for this facade.
The parade of souls begins,
Flesh begets flesh through desire.
The eyes prize what the heart rejects.
The sadistic design of the spirit.
Purge the child from your arms,
Drown it in a sea of lust.

Cupid must have scars for eyes,
His actions are forever barbaric.
Where fire gives way to time,
The cruel design of the machine.
Find the man behind the curtain,
There revealed will be a liar.
Do you remember the bad times?
Or were they burned from your eyes?

A fascination with the way deities come and go throughout history. Now that the Enlightenment is over, a new age has arrive; an Age of Endarkenment. ... more
