Longing for Shelter, Domination

Have I hung on Skeletonwitch's nuts yet? Apparently not.

Why not start now: as much I enjoy Breathing the Fire as an album, I find that I'm now giving it regular spins just because I've developed an unnatural love for one of the lyrics from "Longing for Domination": "You are the helpless, the sheep in the snow/Longing for shelter, domination"

I'm not sure what exactly is at the roots of my intense admiration, but if I had to pick, I think I'd say that it's because I'm imagining the singer as the fire-breathing horned skeleton guy (maybe that's what a skeletonwitch looks like?) on the album cover and I'm pretty sure that if I saw him on the road, I'd feel like a sheep in the snow, too.
