7th son banner

This song continues the mystical theme of the album, detailing someone who is tormented by paranormal dreams and nightmares. This person could be the Seventh Son of the first lineage, i.e., the father of the next Seventh Son to come. It looks like this character has also a certain amount of paranormal powers, althought he doesn't understands his visions and premonitory dreams. The lyrics explore the theme of ultimate reality and what may exist beyond death, in much the same way as the last verse of 'Hallowed Be Thy Name'.

There's got to be just more to it than this or tell me why do we exist

I'd like to think that when I die I'd get a chance another time

And to return and live again, reincarnate, play the game

Again and again and again and again

But unlike in 'Hallowed...', the theme of the meaning of life and the possible answer of reincarnation is suggested. It is a complex song, with multiple tune and rhythm shifts, and an excellent instrumental section in the middle.
