Reduced To Mere Filth

Songfacts®:

  • This song is talking about the future after the Antichrist is born. It's saying how religion will start to fall, and half the people will be "putting their gods to rest" so as to worship their new leader, the Antichrist. The other half that hold to their beliefs realize their fate and "relinquish themselves" by committing religious suicide. >>
