Epica - Seif Al Din 'The Embrace That Smothers - Part Vi' lyrics
The origin of a dogma
Placed in a new millennuim
Vilified demons have been embraced
And given a warm welcome
The Seif Al Din
Hasn't got the ghost of a chance to rust
Because it has always been kept in shape
In serving the one Almighty
The rudiments have always been misinterpreted during history,
Despite the good intentions of many disciples who's faithful believe was strong and unswayed.
Most leaders interpret the old words to their advantage
In the attempt of gaining leadership and power
Over those unfortunate enough to fall under their maliciousness and manipulative ways.
This misuse of trust will forever stain the pages of history,
Echoing the exploitation and the frailty of decent men
Carried away by nurtured rancour...
Perpetual distrust fed by a belief
In the malevolence of the others
When the beautiful unreality holds out its hand
It's better not to lose yourself in blind faith
La illah illallah, Mohammed rasul Allah...
