Descending Lyrics - Lamb Of God



Review The Song (21)


The river I'm bound to be found in,
A rope chosen bound for the hang
When I'm blinded I think I see everything
Convincing myself again

This God that I worship (A faded reflection)
This demon I blame (A flickering flame)
Conspire as one, exactly the same
It's exactly the same

Descending
To never recover the pieces
To all that we've lost
Recover the pieces lost
The pieces to all we've lost

I shudder to think of the consequence
It's blasphemy simple and true
The tragic protagonist torments
Convincing myself again

This God that I worship (A faded reflection)
This demon I blame (A flickering flame)
Conspire as one, exactly the same
It's exactly the same

Descending
To never recover the pieces
To all that we've lost
Recover the pieces lost
The pieces to all we've lost

fucking awsome | Reviewer: anonymous | 9/1/13

just like poetry which ever way we define these lyrics none of it is wrong yes it could be interpreted in a religious way and in a drug abusing way but overall this song is fucking awesome to many this song would probably get them all pumped up and crazy but I find it really soothing

this song is from the POV of judas iscariot(the betrayer) | Reviewer: Prateek Ramsey | 8/19/13

i think this song is from the point of view of judas iscariot.
"The river I'm bound to be found in,
A rope chosen bound for the hang
When I'm blinded I think I see everything
Convincing myself again"
judas hanged himself on a tree near a river after he realised that he had sinned.
"This God that I worship (A faded reflection)
This demon I blame (A flickering flame)
Conspire as one, exactly the same
It's exactly the same"
but all that he did was already preplanned by god, it was prophesised that judas will handle jesus to the romans for 30 pieces of silver. actually it was in god's will for judas to be a betrayer, and now as he knows about it he is thinking that the god he worshipped and the devil(satan) both were on the same side for this, he is taking it as a conspiracy against him.
"I shudder to think of the consequence
It's blasphemy simple and true
The tragic protagonist torments
Convincing myself again"
he is saying that whatever happened to him was a pure blasphemy against him by both god and devil, and now he has to suffer for this.
"Descending
To never recover the pieces
To all that we've lost
Recover the pieces lost
The pieces to all we've lost"
and here he talks about the worlds end when god will come for the judgement day, and the sins he has already done which cannot be forgiven now.

Religious most definately | Reviewer: Sh1ne | 2/9/13

I must say this is pretty much my favourite LOG song looking only at meaning of lyrics (omerta and wwmih on second and third place).

I think this song is about someone that faces a deathsentence allright, only I do not beleive its this medieval thing. this could very well be in our present day.

the fact he's facing death seems quite obvious.

"this god that I worship, this demon I blame, conspire as one exactly the same it's exactly the same" can be interpreted in various ways.
I personally liek to think that good and evil both live in this world and on the moment you face death you finally see how its actually all one and the same. just some invisible force too big for us to comprehend.

in the end it all comes down to the choices we make along the way. this man has made the wrong choices and can therefore "never recover the pieces to all that we've lost"

this is just speculation ofc.
noone really knows what's on randy's mind at any given time.

fact is this song is super amazing.
keep banging those heads, and never leave a concert with a nosebleed or two

review | Reviewer: subha | 12/26/12

This is a fucking awesome song.I dont want to go deep into a religious debate although the lyrics can be interpretted in different ways.I love the lyrics.LOG rocks and am a great fan of the music they create.

talking about history? | Reviewer: Anonymous | 12/21/12

i think the song is talking about religion, but in a positive way. A lot of negative things have happened because of religion, i think this song is talking about the people who used to discredit religion in medievil times its spoken from the point of view of someone who is going to be executed for speaking out against the church (whichever church it is)
in the first verse he describes being hanged and thrown out into a river which could be the punishment for a heretic. then he describes how he has been accused of blasphemy and each of the bridges (this god that i worship) described how it is clear to him that there is no god or demon and it makes no difference wether your good or evil (as he is good but is still being punished). The values he's been taught are false.
just my take on things. i think the whole drug use thing is very vague where as this is more directly suited to the lyrics.

love this song though.... | Reviewer: Anonymous | 2/15/12

The guitars and the music is absolutely awesome, though...
It seems they are repeating a similar formula as other musicians as just trying to rhyme the lyrics and leaving it up to the listener to interpret, eg nirvana, faith no more are examples,, I hate to say anything bad about this band cause I love them and honestly this is my favourite song of theirs , though I wish bands would follow through their lyrics throughout the whole song making it more meaningful for the listener, the first verse sounds like suicide and the chorus has no relationship to the first verse etc...so it seems they are doing a nirvana, faith no more.. and not trying to make the lyrics meaningful

Hermeticism | Reviewer: Anonymous | 9/26/11

Whether Randy Blythe knows it or not, what he's describing is the law of polarity, one of the precepts of hermeticism, alchemy, yoga, taoism, etc., etc., etc. God and the devil/demons/etc. are the same thing, separated only by degrees. Just like darkness isn't something separate from light, it is just a lack of light.

the truth | Reviewer: Taron McLain | 4/4/11

to me is that it is about the end of the world beocuse of the back music and the part
This god that i worship this demon i blame
it is saying that when the world is fine it is god in controll but when the world is falling apart it is the demon( or if your a cristian St. Lucifer) conspire as one becouse they are one in the same. and it hints at the world ending becouse of the peices missing the world ladder or stairs if a peice is missing in the past that was supposed to be in the future than your going to have an unstabble Staircase possibaly of what the catholic church destroyed back in the time of the inquisitions becouse as we all know cristianity destroys everything.

in my opinion | Reviewer: ajinkya.m878@gmail.com | 9/19/10

different people interpret it differently..but to me the song does seem like its about religion
"This God that I worship
This demon I blame,
Conspire as one"
he wants to say that people rely on god and expect good things to happen to them but when things go awry its the demon who is blamed.both of these dont exist..so its all just the same
"when i am blinded i think i see everything"
he is probably saying that people use religion to simplify things in life.

Awesome | Reviewer: Anonymous | 7/28/10

This song is about addiction. The mention of god or demon in the lyrics does not mean thats what he's talking about. It's not log's style to be soft on religion, nor do they make songs with meanings that blatantly obvious. And all verses make sense with addiction interpretation. Religion interpretation leaves holes in some parts of verses. Cheers (addiction represent!) lol

For all you Bible Thumper's!!! | Reviewer: Common sense | 7/21/10

This song has absolutely nothing to do with god or religion. This song is about addictions "This God that I worship" "This demon I blame". Randy Blythe as we all know has problems with drugs and alcohol, now ask yourself if a man with an alcohol and a drug addiction who is also the lead singer for one of Americas greatest HEAVY METAL bands goes to Church or prays to god. I know i don't, neither do any of the other addicts i know. The only way this song has any religious reference, is if you consider the fact that drug addicts religiously abuse the substances that they are addicted to.

BEST SONG EVER!!!!! | Reviewer: ThisCouldBeYourRequiem | 2/12/10

I agree that the lyrics could be interpreted either way (i.e. as a religious statement or as a statement addressing addiction), but I personally take it in more of a literal sense.

"This God that I worship / This demon I blame / Conspire as One / Exactly the same", means exactly what it says to me. It expresses my views of religion and the existance a Supreme Being perfectly.

Hate/Love | Reviewer: Zeltaok | 7/4/08

The lyrics in this song makes it sound like randy sings about something he "love/hate" which is the Alcohol. "This god that i worship, this demon i blame". The lyrics and music makes this song awesome. You can also make it "your own" with the demon/god being something you hate and love, maybe your girlfriend/boyfriend or some addiction.

not about religion | Reviewer: madstylex | 3/12/08

This is awesome. Everything bout it is awesome. I don't really think its about religion but more about alcoholism or other addictions. If u know anything about Lamb of God you will know that Randy is a fucking alcoholic, lol. The god he worships and the demon he blames could well be a bottle of booze.

mad song | Reviewer: madstylex | 3/12/08
