Itís deep within you
Raging through the vessels
Corroding my rationality
You never wanted anything
Never hated the ones who wanted it

Ripping and gnawing
Scratches and festering puncture holes

It lies within your empty organs
Know and going, knowing and going
Rip apart my balanced soul
I couldnít have taken from you
You never hated me for wanting it

Ripping and gnawing
Scratches and festering puncture holes

(chorus)
Coming in the night, this ethereal phantasm
Reaping through the flesh
Searching for the long lost point on its pentagram
Circle less, and spiritless
Flipping around and spinning around
Flipping around and spinning around
Itís upside down, itís upside down

Ensanguined, and on the knees
Tearing through the inner lining
Flip around its reciprocally placed star
An inversion of this choir song
The death of 3 will come to be
The death of 3 will come to be
The death of 3 will come to be

Ripping and gnawing
Scratches and festering puncture holes

Ripping and gnawing
Scratches and festering puncture holes

(chorus)

The pagans burning down the church
The Christians in their plastic mirth
The dream become reality, this is number 10
Iíll take from you what you hold dear
The death of 3 will come to be
The death of 3 will come to be
The death of 3, you will soon see

Ripping and gnawing
Scratches and festering puncture holes

(chorus)

Up rides the phantom
Upon his beheaded horse
Holding the pieces that he has found
Looking and searching, he only finds hate
The top of his star weíll use as the bate
Throw the life face into the fire
Feeding it, feeding it
Feeding the one we created for madness
He was made by the god who has only gladness
From good came on evil
From good came on evil
This hypocritical sanction of lies
Weíll burn down the temple and gouge out the eyes

Ripping and gnawing
Scratches and festering puncture holes

(chorus)

Three has died
Three has died
Itís upside down
Un-circled and bleeding
Itís upside down
Un-circled  and bleeding
Itís upside down
Itís upside down
Earth, air, fire, water
Mixing in the blood
Turning into organ grindings
Mixed with mud

Ripping and gnawing
Scratches and festering puncture holes
(chorus)

Ensanguined, and on the knees
Tearing through the inner lining
Flip around its reciprocally placed star
An inversion of this choir song
The death of 3 will come to be
The death of 3 will come to be
The death of 3 will come to be

Well, I won't get into hardcore detail, but I will reveal what I can.  Essentially it's about this "phantasm" who is searching for spirit, which happens to be the missing point on his pentagram.  The pentagram is a symbol of both good and evil.  It has five points; water, fire, spirit, earth, air.  Having one of the points missing would essentially make it unbalanced and the "phantasm" represents the things that are trying to take away the spirit within us, the people who try and drain us.  Also a circled pentagram is a symbol of goodness and security, whereas an uncircled pentagram is evil and even more so a pentagram which has been flipped upside down and is un circled.  So the phantasm represents all the evils in the world that attempt to tare us down.  Although the lines "Never hated the ones who wanted it" is basically saying that so often we don't realize until long after the fact that people were using us.  The number 3 in this poem represents "individuality" and freedom, the people who take from us only want to take, they want what we have to become better than us, they want to take away what makes us, us.  The sub theme of this poem is the hypocricies of religion and how saying that god is good is hypocritical, because if god created all things then he also created evil...therefore who is more evil in theory?  God or Satan?  I hope that gives you...some idea.
