About Torque Daemon Transformation

This might help in understanding the lyrical content for Torque Daemon Transformation: "From Hesiod also, the people of the Golden Age were transformed into daimones by the will of Zeus, to benevolently serve mortals as their guardian spirits; “good beings who dispense riches…[nevertheless], they remain invisible, known only by their acts”.[4] The daimon of venerated heroes, were localized by the construction of shrines, so as not to restlessly wander, and were believed to confer protection and good fortune on those offering their respects."-en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Daemon_%28c…cal_mythology%29 I see the need for us human beings who are currently alive to assume the role of benevolent spirit. You'll find in myths and even surviving religions, many similarities between other stories in the same realm. I'm just wondering how often are the gods going to be these beings that are outside of ourselves. We are generally afraid to consider ourselves as having Godlike potential. When you look at the way the world is run, one can easily understand that our religions have us in the position of supplication and dogma instead of companionship and the freedom to question. I'm here to express a desired companionship and a need to simply be better and stronger. Maybe the past whispers in our ear, those venerated heroes of the golden age, but they have limited knowledge of the present. That's where we come in with our own will for our own transformation... The song lyrics end with "Awaken from this dream, I've fallen in between these lies, I'm bleeding." Meaning that when we develop the realization of everything that I've mentioned, we have the ability to persist, if not as an individual, then as a species with an aim for itself. To never die, but simply bleed (literally and/or metaphorically (trying not to confine it)) from the efforts of our labors.
