So in simple explanation, we have just a few characters: the Moon Spirit, the Host, and the Cult. The moon spirit is what lives in “It Lives,” as the Cult celebrates the discovery of the Spirit, but also do not know that the Spirit has ulterior motives in its plan to become one with the Earth again. The Moon Spirit uses its light as a way to influence and control the Cult followers so they can enact its plans on Earth. Its first task was to procure a Host body to be transferred into, which is the subject of “Eyes,” being about the many watching eyes of the Cult and Moon Spirit’s influence on the Host until they finally capture her. “The Light” is a switch-up that acts as an instrumental reminiscence that plays on the longing and sad distance between the Moon Spirit and the Earth, which then breaks into the contrasting aggressive “Disgust,” throwing us right back into the present of the Host being secured and a ritual commencing to introduce the Moon Spirit into the Host body, allowing it to walk the Earth and carry out its secret plans. “The Destroyer” is the betrayal of all of the Cult followers by the now-bodied Moon Spirit, where it uses its powers to destroy, torture, and eradicate humans, seeing them as a disease that infects the Earth which was so precious to the Moon Spirit, leaving the listener off at a cliffhanger point of absolute devastation.
