    Hi everybody is my first time in the forums :headbang: well, I was reading the lyrics of the song "By The Pain I See In Others" and in the few last lines says this:

    "Htaed otni yaw eht dael
    Won resolc
    Peels rof gnol
    Gnivael dna
    Yawa gnidaf

    Tuohtiw Od Nac I Tahw
    Em Gniwohs
    Thgil Laerehte
    Raeppasid Dna
    Edaf Sruoloc
    Ecnart Gnihtoos"


    Anybody knows what is the meaning of these words?

    Just read it backwards:

    "Htaed otni yaw eht dael
    "Lead the way into death
    Won resolc
    Closer now
    Peels rof gnol
    Long for sleep
    Gnivael dna
    And leaving
    Yawa gnidaf
    Fading away

    Tuohtiw Od Nac I Tahw
    What I can do without
    Em Gniwohs
    Showing me
    Thgil Laerehte
    Ethereal light
    Raeppasid Dna
    And disappears
    Edaf Sruoloc
    Colors fade
    Ecnart Gnihtoos"
    Soothing trance"

    Read the lines from bottom to top -- they are two verses from Master's Apprentices.

    that's the "scary part" at like 2 mins. after the ending of the actual song. They put it on the record because steve was playing with those lines from Master's Apprentices while on the studio, Mike walked in and he got scared. They tried to put it as a hidden track before the beginning of the record, but Andy Sneap had some problem with it, so he just left it at the end.

    No it's quite obvious, even to the untrained eye.

    Ow, you said "whiner", how ironic :p

    Yea the Beatles used to do stuff like that all the time, they started it. Its called "backmasking" it gets weirder tho some songs like stairway to heaven when played backward have satanic messages in em even tho if you wer to read the lyrics backwards it wouldent say anything, but the way they mix it makes it so you can hear it. Judas priest was taken to court for it once because one of there songs played backwards said "I take my life" and they claimed it brain washed a kid into taking a sawed off shotgun to his head, which is bullshit because if a kid heard that forwards does that make him kill himself ? and all the freaking tv preist bash it. Thats a short history to my knowlage of backmasking.

    I remember reading in an article where Peter was talking about the backwards "scary" part...

    I remember stumbling across it...I love hidden things

    Agreed. ac/dc had some of the most satanic ones.
