This song, as the final installment of the steps is really killer. Reprise of The Glass Prison. As someone with multiple years of recovery, I definitely appreciate the way the steps unfold over multiple albums, both with musical reprises, and the transgression of the lyrical theme. Guy below doesn't get it, and that's cool. I didn't understand what the hell the Glass Prison was about when it came out. I certainly do now. The Glass Prison > This Dying Soul > The Shattered Fortress > The Root of All Evil > Repentance (but all the songs are great).
I agree with several commenters here who mention how forced this song feels. While thematically it makes sense for the finale to be a collection of motifs from previous songs, as a standalone song it lacks the punch of its predecessors. And while I do enjoy the song on its own, once it reaches that "voice of god" section, I am left cold, and not in a good way. (For what it's worth, my favorite from the suite is "This Dying Soul")
