You probably wouldn’t guess any of that from the song’s lyrics, which speak nebulously of “Poison gifts giving death every time now / Rename ourselves as the gods take the blood oath.” Perhaps an earlier reference to “raping” in the dark alludes to aliens’ midnight anal probes, but it appears that the lines quoted above are meant to refer to the oath of Fallen Angels from 1 Enoch 6:4-5 as interpreted through Zecharia Sitchin’s idea of the aliens purposely posing as gods to manipulate humanity into worshiping them.
Pike told Rolling Stone that he subscribes to the ancient astronaut theory in its most classic form, including popular claims that ancient astronaut theorists have rejected, such as aliens physically constructing ancient wonders like pyramids and ziggurats. He claims that the Epic of Gilgamesh documents the achievements of the extraterrestrials, and he cited Genesis 6:4 as proof that humans and aliens engage in frequent sexual intercourse, as Erich von Däniken long maintained. According to Pike:
“Even the Bible talks about it, the giants — the Nephilim — loving human women,” he maintains. “Who wouldn’t love human women? Dude, if I was some sort of alien or fallen angel who disagreed with God, I’d be like, ‘Dude, I’m going to fuck every girl on this planet that I can! Because they’re hot!’” he adds with a laugh.
At the same time, man, the only weapon I have, as far as being a good human being, and sticking up for my race, is my voice. I was given a voice to say something, and I’m doing just that. I gotta say something, man! Look at the world around you and tell yourself it's OK, because it’s really not, dude; it’s so fucked up.
