Subject: stairway to Heaven lyrics - true meaning

Written By: lamplight on 01/13/10 at 12:41 pm

This song was written by the fire one night according to Paige and Plant.  The fire of hell.  The messages in this song as written and backward masked were guided by the evil one. 

There’s a lady whose sure all that glitters is gold and she’s buying a stairway to heaven. When she gets there, she knows if the stores are all closed with a word she can get what she came for.
(Occult alchemy.  Some people like shiny things and think they have value. Some believe they can buy, with money or sex, whatever they want.  An ancient fertility goddess called the queen of heaven - ancient devil worship.  It's a blasphemy verse as money, material things and sex have no place or value in God's heaven.)

Theres a feeling I get when I look to the west, And my spirit is crying for leaving.
(in ancient times, the west, the direction of the sunset, was the direction of hell - children of darkness long to return home to their master where death and destruction awaits them)

In my thoughts I have seen rings of smoke through the trees, And the voices of those who standing looking. (maybe ritual sex or sacrifice with incantations by the fire outdoors)

there are two paths you can go by but in the long run, there's still time to change the road you’re on.
(The two paths - salvation and eternal life through Jesus or evil - putting your trust in money and material things, satan.

Sometimes all of our thoughts are misgiven. (demons try to turn us away from God and toward sin through our thoughts.)

And it’s whispered that soon if we all call the tune then the piper will lead us to reason. And a new day will dawn for those who stand long and the forests will echo with laughter. (the new-age anti-Christ is the piper that will lead all who will follow the tune of devil rock into hell - the new day is the new-age - it's a counterfeit of the Bible verses that tell us those who stand for Jesus to the end will be saved.)

Its just a spring clean for the May queen. (the queen of heaven again, mayday was an ancient fertility celebration)

Your head is humming and it won’t go, In case you don’t know: The pipers calling you to join him. (devil rock music and the foretold sound that will be heard at the coming of the new-age anti-Christ is a counterfeit of the trumpet blast to be heard at the coming of the Lord Jesus.)

Dear lady, can you hear the wind blow, And did you know: Your stairway lies on the whispering wind. (the wind is a spirit - you can choose to follow the Holy Spirit or evil spirits.) 

And as we wind on down the road, our shadows taller than our soul, there walks a lady we all know. Who shines white light and wants to show…How everything still turns to gold.
(wind down the road like a snake or like the devil; the shadow is evil; the queen of heaven-the devil who appears as an angel of light-occult alchemy turning metals into gold)

And if you listen very hard the tune will come to you at last. When all are one and one is all, yeah, to be a rock and not to roll.
(trying to convince you to listen to the evil spirits and hear the tune of the devil, anti-Christ, when the one-world government and universal new-age religion is formed and much of the world chooses to be unified under satanic power.)


God bless you as you seek the truth,

lamplight

Lamplighter, how kind of you to ruin a perfectly good song.  BTW, Led Zepplin was not one to even consider any mention of Christianity in their music.  It has been said that they themselves dabbled in the occult.  So in short your post insults the people who wrote and recorded it.  Have a nice day and don't thump your bible too hard!!!

One positive thing about that post is that its good to look at Zeppelins lyrics and realize just how good a poet/lyricists robert plant and Jimmy Page were !

Led Zeppelin - Stairway To Heaven w/Lyrics - My interpretation in description

https://youtu.be/78AhpI0laT4


If you ask a million people to give their interpretation of Led Zeppelins' Stairway to Heaven, without collaboration, you will get a million different interpretations. And each and every one of them would be absolutely correct. Where you are spiritually, will determine how you interpret anything in life. Even if you don't consider yourself spiritual, everything you see, touch, hear, smell, taste, feel, etc. is responded to spiritually, to some degree or another. Again it just depends on where you are at spiritually as to how you respond and or interpret anything. When reading any kind of literature that contains metaphors, EVERYONE is going to interpret it differently. And this song is written almost entirely metaphorically. I interpreted this song with a Christian point of view, so this video may not work for you if you are not a Christian. On the other hand, it's a pretty powerful interpretation, and should be interesting regardless what religion you are. Also, I found it virtually impossible to convey this song visually without creating it as, what I call, a wide awake dream. So it will require a bit of thinking outside the box. It normally takes me 4-5 days max to create a classic rock ballad video, but a lot of research went into this monster and took nearly 2 months to complete. And so, here is my interpretation of Stairway To Heaven, I hope you enjoy it.

"There's a lady who's sure, all that glitters is gold. And she's buying the stairway to Heaven"

There's a suggestion in this opening line that the "lady" is misguided, because all that glitters is NOT gold.
The 12th century French theologian Alain de Lille wrote "Do not hold everything gold that shines like gold".
I used an image of a golden serpent in the video not specifically to represent the love of gold and or wealth; (The root of all evil) But in my research of the meaning to these lyrics, I concluded that "gold" in this case, represents the seven deadly sins, (lust, greed gluttony, sloth, wrath, envy, pride). Unrealized by the "lady" in her misguided sense of entitlement.
I chose 1 Timothy 6:9 -10 as the Bible passage to summarize this part of the lyrics. (Verse 11 is added here, but comes more into play further into the song.)
"But they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition.
For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.
But thou, O man of God, flee these things; and follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness."

"When she gets there she knows, if the stores all are closed, with a word she can get what she came for"
More clarification of her misguided sense of entitlement. This is pointing out the irony of they way she is leading her life. What is she going to do with the material things if that is all she has in her life?
I chose the doors ("stores") closing leaving her in darkness holding her "gold", to represent Heaven is not selling tickets for admission. Hence the money she is pouring up to heaven. Admission is a free gift from God, But the doors won't open until you get rid of that suitcase full of unGodly passions. There is a little more to it which comes in later, but for now this needs to be her first epiphany.
I chose Acts 8:20 as the Bible passage to summarize this part of the lyrics.

"But Peter said to him, “May your silver perish with you, because you thought you could obtain the gift of God with money!"

If you ask a million people to give their interpretation of Led Zeppelins' Stairway to Heaven, without collaboration, you will get a million different interpretations. And each and every one of them would be absolutely correct.

Keep in mind that the Zep was big into the occult, featured symbolism on album covers and had connections to Anton Szandor Lavey and Alister Crowley. Here are the forward lyrics first, and then a backward unveiling done with a records player, playing the vinyl copy backward. Also, keep in mind that planning to write this song backward is impossible now let alone back then. Speaking backward is something done by Satanic groups but this elaborate has never been done.
Conclude what you will but consider that Satan might be real and that this might indeed be a complete inspiration from the dark side.

One last thought - many have ascribed this backward using MP3 whereas this is from vinyl. In the MP3 scribed versions is seems that there is a line about the workshed. The workshed is the name Alistair Crowley gave his satanic temple.

There's a lady that's sure
All that glitters is gold
And she's buying a stairway to heaven.
When she gets there she knows
If the stores are all closed
With a word she can get what she came for.
There's a sign on the wall
But she wants to be sure
'Cause you know sometimes words have two meanings.
In a tree by the brook
There's a songbird that sings,
Sometimes all of our thoughts are misgiven.
And she's buying a stairway to heaven.
There's a feeling I get
When I look to the west,
And my spirit is crying for leaving.
In my thoughts I have seen
Rings of smoke through the trees,
When the voices of those who standing looking.
And she's buying a stairway to heaven.
And it's whispered that soon
If we all call the tune
Well Then the piper will lead us to reason.
And a new day will dawn
For those who stand long
And the forests will echo with laughter.
And she's buying a stairway to heaven.
Ooh, it makes me wonder,
Ooh, it really makes me wonder.
If there's a bustle in your hedgerow
Don't be alarmed now,
It's just a spring clean for the May queen.
Yes, there are two paths you can go by
But in the long run
There's still time to change the road you're on.
And it makes me wonder.
Your head is humming and it won't go
In case you don't know,
The piper's calling you to join him,
Dear lady, can you hear the wind blow,
And did you know
Your stairway lies on the whispering wind.
And as we wind on down the road
Our shadows taller than our soul.
There walks a lady we all know
Who shines white light and wants to show
How ev'rything still turns to gold.
And if you listen very hard
The tune will come to you at last.
When all are one and one is all
To be a rock and not to roll.
And she's buying a stairway to heaven.

Plaaaay backwards,
Hear why its sung here, oppositioner..
Allll on track, all arriving
They all sing, and they are one.
Shall I loathe you now, parishoner?
Oh hear Him, Christian within me.
It stirs my sin; the river,
Oh, she swells with our lousiness.
All my life will end for him?
We're all out of signs,
I know I'm sorta shocked
To hear The Lord,
My God now will save me!
Oh I will n'er be saved,
Because I live with Satan..
One wish today;
That you'll all pray for
Three who will make it here late.
Pray now and you'll see..
The 'Lord' turned me on,
But, oh, I was the shaggy fool..
Clothed in agony,
Lost at a height.
There's no escaping it,
Nor his woes..
So here's to my Sweet Satan.
The other's little path
Would make me sad,
Whose power is faith.
He'll give those with him 666.
And all the evil fools,
they know he made
us suffer sadly.
Ohohohoh...
"Family won't get loose,
They're offered me."
Always soothes the worker.
Always will be as we know now
"I see ruins," said he,
"the world they offered me?
Who wished the Lord's fall?"
If we lose feather,
Say you'll save me!

And no wimps can bend the rules..
And no wimps can do..

Hunt next to the shore,
'Cause they see all from there,
See here's the news,
Who walks with mute grief!
Perhaps no-one found thee...
"Heavy, lift me out,"
Spake the Reve,
"Someday, failed, we'll lose one line-up,
They've gotta leave forsaken."

And no wimps can do..
And no wimps can do...

He, who say the lords
Thoth have our laws,
Maat must be superb. Mass is ended..
Over there,
He who should learn thee.
Any moot that serves by my sworn music,
I wish it with snow be shushed,
All for my mass's sake.
Hear why its sung,
here, oppositioner, Ohh..
He who should show
May make his show worthy,
To look, for us, odd.. sickly,
There's one chance - take his show.
Hold thy head,
Hear why its sung here. oppositioner.
Who owns this earth built below?
Oh sweet Israel...
