It's a concept way too deep for me, I'm lost in it. It's like a huge god head watching over to see whether or not people are resisting to temptation. The title "SOG," we believe god is a personal thing and that god is within you, and that there isn't one supreme god. That's not to say that we don't believe in god or we believe in anything. We believe in ourselves.Gregor Mackintosh / Paradise Lost interview, Thrashikus #5, 1992
