I Am the Thorn Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
The needle in the eye of the hurricane
The poison in the font
The nail in the coffin of the profane
I am the lot
Verse 2
Maniacal the fire
That weaves inside my soul
When dripping tongues of hate,envenomed,roll
Like carpet bombs in vast bazaars
My blood runs with the beasts
Though no crescent, cross
Or wandering star
Shalt witness my defeat
Verse 3
Born of jackal in the Vatican
To a loathesome flock
I have crept behind the drapes
And a wizard there is not
Just a white flag blackened by
Singing weapons that have led
A faith that soon dominions over
Desert kingdoms of the dead
Verse 4
I smell the fleur do malcontent
The hellish stench
Of Judas in the dozens
Verse 5
Bouquets for greed and twisted law
Handmaidens of a holy war
Bring on a thousand roses more
I am The Thorn
Verse 6
Tangled are the thickets
That spare the virgin heart
From the waking grasp of rapists in the dark
Verse 7
Mountaineers that strive so far
For a Heaven grown from reach
That love herself is fabled
To be missing from their peaks
Save in one sole tower
Where the presence of a rod
Stays the sleeping beauty
From the prying fingers of the mob
Verse 8
I smell the fleur do malcontent
The hellish stench
Of Judas in the dozens
Verse 9
Bouquets for greed and twisted law
Handmaidens of a holy war
Bring on a thousand roses more
I am The Thorn
Verse 10
I am The Thorn
Verse 11
I am the Spear of Longinus
The Sword of Damocles
Kali up in arms, a bleeding sinus
The hammer of the gods in the prophet's teeth
Verse 12
I am The Thorn
Verse 13
Saint Disgustus, President Evil
Great white hopes of a shark eyed people
Lights of the world now flicker and die
Verse 14
Impaled in the race. in the paling face
Where forked tongues pricked the skies
Choking on these words as I slither to their ear
As lightning strikes their blinded minds
Verse 15
I am The Thorn
Verse 16
I am not the hand of God...
I am The Thorn
I am not the hand of God...
I am The Thorn
Verse 17
Territorial thieves
Ever stealing thunder for religious causes
I will bring you all down to your knees
And fuck you over
Verse 18
Bouquets for greed and twisted law
Handmaidens of a holy war
Bring on a thousand roses more
I am The Thorn
