    Jack Frober is always mentioned in the lyrics but who or what is the meaning?

    Is there a hidden meaning with this, a concept? Lantern bearer?

    is he the clergyman of the town? that would be my guess, but im not actually looking at the lyrics so it is a complete guess.

    Jack Frober? Wtf?

    4. Moonlapse Vertigo

    Kept warm by the light of the lantern
    Lost sight of everything tonight
    My presence blackens their pattern
    A pock in the healthy and calm

    Their scorn behind your back
    My promise would put them down
    No trace of reverance left
    Immemorial fire in their eyes

    I would persih at the given signal
    At the slightest touch from my soul
    Tainted prophet in flesh
    For all the plagued and lost

    Dripping sin
    Decision in stalemate
    Dare to feel death at hand
    Surprised me with its voice
    Through the forest came the morn

    Across the leafy pathway
    Their deeds smeared in blood
    For all to behold
    The council of the cross
    Must have sensed my coming
    The pest through the air
    With despise for squalor
    Lashing out at the poor

    I turned away my eyes
    In pallor escape from the end
    Fading time to leave from here
    And less to fulfill my task
    She would be safe and firm
    Nothing of this is in vain
    Taken away from stifling grace
    And saved from the past

    Nothing of this is in Jack Frober
    Taken away from stifling Jack Frober
    And saved from the Jack Frober


    now that you said it i noticed that this song is actually about an unknown person called jack frober!
    who hell is that jack frober guy??
