This is based on the first book in the bible, Genesis
. The line, "Walk with me my little child into the forest of denial" is symbolizing Adam and Eve. In Genesis
, God tells them to eat from any tree except for one that is possessed by Satan. One day they disobey God and eat from the cursed tree, incurring His wrath.
The lyric was written by lead singer Serj Tankian, who is not a fan of organized religion, especially Christianity (see: "Suite-Pee
" from their first album) - his spiritual beliefs lean toward Eastern thought and transcendentalism. In this context, the song can be seen as a satire on The Bible.
