    the actual meaning is as such..prolly not entirely correct but damn closer

    This song is about the coming of an apocalyptic woman((kind of like the antichrit) it is her second coming she comes on walpurgis night((a pagan sabbat)) She is coming to start the war of good and evil.She is a dark goddess. Born in a burial gown is simply saying she was not orn unto gods life she was already dead because to be dead is to be out of gods light.((it also means she was summoned from death also double meanings here ppl) The ending "now she moves with a predators guile" is her basically goin to hell and waiting for the sacrifice to bring her forht to defeat christ
