Stairway to Heaven Backwards Full Lyrics

Because I’ve noticed some people searching for the “full lyrics to Stairway to Heaven reversed” and probably find my lacking in that regard, I will post an email that I received this morning, partly here and partly in the comments. (It’s too long to include the whole thing on the main page.)

Well, you have certainly caused a stir here. It seems that everybody is flocking to your site. Nice work. I must tell you, though, you have it wrong. Here are the lyrics to the part that you have on your site:

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.

I have discovered that the ENTIRE Stairway To Heaven is a full and COMPLETE backwards message. EVERY word from start to finish is undeniable and distinguishable.

Easily heard if you know what to look for. I wired an old record player’s motor to run in reverse, and got out my old copy of the album. It’s very scary. As I played it backwards last night over 10 times, I got chills down my spine every time. How it was done, I haven’t a clue. I have changed my opinion that the computer is the best vehicle to listen to it backwards. It was definitely made for vinyl, and the needle moving in the wrong direction combined with the grooves of the record make it clearer. I don’t think that the computer can duplicate that. THIS below is the absolute and correct translation of the lyrics to ‘Stairway To Hell’ WORD FOR WORD without any chance of there being any mistakes.
Trust me, THIS IS IT:

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…

Granted the lyrics he provides are possible, but I still hear the lyrics I originally posted. I listened to the whole song backwards with these “full and complete lyrics” in front of me and yeah a lot of them you can hear – the power of suggestion is pretty strong. But a lot of the words are hard to hear imagine, even when you know what you are listening for. Let me just finish by saying that anyone who believes this whole Stairway to Heaven backmasking thing is anything more than a neat coincidence is not the sharpest crayon in the box. Sorry guys, I know its fun and everything but let’s get real.

For example, I had a different person recently thank me in an email and tell me about how she was throwing her old albums away because of it…

Dear Jeff,
Thanks for your Stairway to Heaven (and other songs) backwards! I’m putting my old Led Zeppelin albums from the 70’s in the trash straight away!

Much appreciated!
Rita

I can hardly believe it. Next time you or anybody you know, wants to throw out collectors items including their old Stairway to Heaven vinyls, please send them to me instead.

  1. So I read the post and all the comments. I have some comments of my own:

    On the main subject:
    It's plausible, indeed. But bear in mind that Led Zeppelin has stated that they NEVER had something like this in mind when writing the song. Of course, you could say that they are Satanists and Satan is Father of Lies and they therefor lie, but I doubt it.

    I am one of those who think that if you hear it backwards and read the "backwards" lyrics at the same time, you could easy agree with the backwards lyrics. I tried just listening, without reading, but then it became more fuzzy. It seemed as I could interpret the word "Satan" but that could also because I was searching for the word. The mind of man does curious things.

    On a more general account, people must stop believing what they read on the Internet. Not everything is true. I'm not saying this is a hoax, this very thing about Led Zeppelin might be true, I in fact think it is very intrigueing to think that they made a song that makes two opposite meanings forwards and backwards.

    Another thing, which goes to the discussion about the "666" issue:

    666 is the "number of the beast", true. But on more general numerology, it is in fact 6 that is the devil's number. 7 is the number of God, 5 is the number of man. But as said in the Bible, 666 shall be the mark of the devil, branding him and his followers.

    (a remark on the side: If you look at a pentagram, how many different polygons does it consist of? 6. One pentagon and 5 triangles. A pentagon has 5 sides. This would imply that Satan is just a derivative of the mind of man)

    (for those who don't know, a pentagram is the star that is said to be one of the Satanic symbols. It however needs to be put with one triangle pointing directly downwards and a circle around it to be Satanic at all. No, I'm not a satanist)

  2. Hear-Hear. I learned something. Nice post. I never knew the numbering of Man was 5. And I didn't know that about the pentagram. Huttah.

  3. First off I would like to say that I have tried listening to Stairway to heaven backwards. I have listened to it on 228Kbs, 128Kbs (CD), and vinyl. Yes, even vinyl, I have every Zep album except I and II. After listening many times without the lyrics in front of me, I have come to the conclusion that about maybe 20-30 words are completely recognizable out of, say, 350 or so? I heard words like "Satan" because I was listening for it. So after listening to it on three different audio qualities, I pulled out the lyrics again (I read them once before listening to the song, so I knew somewhat of what to listen for. I also already had been to the backmasking flash on this site.). This time, I noticed some more words and put together what before sounded like gibberish. This is in a way like an optical illusion, perhaps, it is a mind trick. When you put the "lyrics" of "Stairway to Hell" (which contains no relevancy of the backwards lyrics)in front of you and listen again, you hear the words (some of them). I'd like to point out that "Plaaaay backwards" doesn't sound like that at all, and neither do half the words. It all sounds skippy and not put together.

    k.seijas (the author of this) seems to think that "EVERY word from start to finish is undeniable and distinguishable." Really k.seijas? Well according to you, that's only "Easily heard if you know what to look for." Distinguishable is only real if you can hear it without a doubt. This means, you don't need to be looking for something. You hear the song backwards and you hear the "message".

    And most people who are against this say it's a coincidence. Well it really isn't even that. It's way to skippy and not recognizable to even be a coincidence! Even Plant said that "it's not my idea of making music". Led Zeppelin was, without a doubt, THE greatest rock band of all time (up there with Pink Floyd). I HIGHLY doubt that this "message" is here on purpose. It sounds nothing like those lyrics that don't make sense anyways. (oppositioner is NOT a word.)

    This all started by a bunch of teens in the 70s anyway. Just get over it, IT IS NOT REAL. Yeah it's fun to think about but c'mon, grow up.

  6. im not even sure if people r still reading these messages but i like to see that other people think the same way i do thats y im posting

    first off and easy way to hear teh whole song backward is doing this:

    download dBpowerAMP music converter
    (just type it in google)
    download stairway to heaven and send it to my music or somethin then right click it and click convert it with dBpowerAMP then covert it to a WAV file.
    after you have converted the file go to sound recorder. most computers with windows have this program. when in sound recorder click open and stairway to heaven shoudl be in the folde ru put it in.

    ok now my view of the song
    a little background
    from wut i have herd/read robert plant bought a huge piece of land that included a beach. on the beach was wut looked ot a be a toolshed (mentioned in the backwards form of the song in the verese of beguinning with "if theres a bustle.." ) ive herd this was a actually a chaple of satan.
    also i have herd that plant made up the song on the spot and some of it was derrived form "magic arts in celtic britain". whether or not this is tue i dont know. but if it is true, then tehre is no way anyone could make a such a powerful songs that has many meesage JUST FORWARD, im not even talking backward right now. the song form a poetic point of view is incredible. theres so many aspects to the song. the way the music is played.. is how a heroine triop feels. though i cannot say i have shot heroine i have read a lot about it and kno people that have. the tingly feeling in the beguuinnn when ur chilled out-thats teh intro, the song gradually gets more inteense the high climbs up. at teh end of teh song when it goes nuts..thats thats the peak and when he chills out again- he comes down. also, the part of the song that is most clearly herd backwards is in the middle of the song which is the "if theres a bustle" verse. i think that "god" call him buddah jesus mary joespeh idc wut u call it and teh "devil" fighting over this mans soul. forwards is the stairway to heaven and backward is the stairway to hell. and in teh middle of teh song is mosty clear becuase they both have his soul.

    i have only scrathed the surface of wut i have learned form this song but i want to share one more thing that i think cool. in the song i geta strong mental picture of a person walking in the forest and he comes across a forkk in the road and he sees some dude that explains wut each path leads to. but in reality it only confuses teh eprson becuause they dont kno wut they actually want. this shows upina lot of things in movies, books and in everyday life. for example- the wizard of oz..when dorothy meets teh scarecrow and he says oem people go this way some peopl go taht way some ppl go both ways or somethin idk..alice in wonderland she comes aacross a path and gets very confused by the person talking to her..both of those stories r comparable to stairway to heaven in many ways..also teh road not taken by robert frost ahs it. since i figured all that out i have probably come across a fork in the road not just listterally at leat once a day. i kno i sound dumb and i cnat really explain. im sure some people think i sound crazy and some people know exactly what im talkin about cuz they think teh same thing. well if u think im nuts fuck u lol

  7. Ok….
    I've said this a million times on my blog…
    YOU PEOPLE ARE IDIOTS!!

    Stairway to Heaven Has NOTHING to do with satanic worship forward or backwards.

    Forward, StH is about materialism in the world, and backwards, it seems to be about an inner struggle between God and Satan.

    You people need to READ BETWEEN THE LINES!

    Syko (O_o)

  8. I have listened to the whole song backwards on vinyl and i have to admit i could hear words without even looking at a lyrics sheet. To start with i thought this is a complete trick of the brain and we just pick up what we are looking to hear but then i read up on the history of this song and how much relevence there actully is to the words i picked up. This mite b a complete conisedence but i just dont know. There is a bit that talks about "toolshed" like Jimmy page's house Boleskine which was once the site of "a church that burned to the ground with the congregation in it." it has also been said that it was made into a satantic church which was called the "toolhouse" so the "toolshed" would have been the outbuliding the place the people were burnt to death. I think this is either a very weird coinsidence or that this song is almost revealed the pain these people went thru i know how stupid this sounds but this link gave me doubts on that it was jsut a trick http://reversespeech.com/framestairway.htm but i just dont know

  9. well, i listened to the whole thing, and, the words are FAR FROM CLEARLY THERE.

    The clearest bit is the chorus, and if there is any backward lyrics, the lyrics here are well off.

    Enhance the "Satan"s, they do not sound the same. They are more like Sate or Fate in some cases.

    Many examples of this, and this is all cos ur brain tries to fillin the blanks in the phonics of the "words" you hear.

    Even listen close to the "Israel" at the end, its actually just "Isra", but ur brain thinks, well, what else can it be?

    Its coincidence. When I listened to it reversed without reading lyrics 1st I heard barely anything I could call "words", and it was only the bit from the flash movie i recognised.

  10. PS

    Sounds more like this at hedgerow bit:

    Here's to my sweet Satan. The one whose little path would make me sad whose power is fake.

    Fake makes more sense…

  11. Honestly, some of you think this is a coincidence? Are you crazy? Stuff like this doesn’t just pop up. Randomly. Without reason. And so what if it is Satanic? Satanism is a religion. It’s not like it’s impossible for a song to be secretly Satanic… I believe this is real… And maybe the backwards lyrics don’t even say Satan… they sound a little different… but hey, who knows…

  12. I played the song backwards and I could not believe it.
    I’m just twelve years old, and Led Zeppelin was my favorite band, Jimmy Page was my idol and so on. Now I’m deeply shocked as I discovered it has something to do with Satan.

    I read some replies, and now it really makes me wonder.
    I just keep thinking about it. Before I read those backwards lyrics, I could not understand what are they talking about in the backwards version. As I read the lyrics, I understood.

    Of course our brain hears things we expect to hear.
    But still it’s hard to believe this is just a coincidence.

    Once again I have to say I’m deeply shocked because of this. Since I’ve heard it, Stairway To Heaven was my favorite song. I listened to it when I couldn’t sleep.

    Now I realize the song I was listening to calm me down, was a Satan song.

    Palmina

  13. Me again. I read all of the replies now, and I can tell it’s maybe a little bit clear to me.

    I understand Led Zeppelin wasn’t a satanic band, we all know that. But here we are talking about the band, not about the persons in the band. Has anyone here actually met Plant or Page? If you aren’t close to members of Led Zep, how can you be for sure are they satanic or not?

    People can be different inside, no matter how do we think they are. And yes, you really have to be a genius to do this. It’s quite hard to write a 8 minute song which makes sense forward and backwards.

    I kind of doubted reading this. I knew it was creepy, but I couldn’t stop, and I just had to listen to the backwards version. I’ll just be honest – now I’m definitely scared.
    I kind of got disappointed in Led Zeppelin. But it made me interested in it, too. I don’t know what to think.
    This is all just too confusing. I wish I can ask someone from the band about it.

  14. I could not believe it either Stair way to haven was such a good song I cant believe they would have a message like that i felt scared to

    My friend loved lady gaga when she found out about the subliminal message she was really shocked.

  15. Okay, so i’ve heard this song backmasked.And to be honest
    when i first heard it, it had no sign of satanic messages.if you read the words into a microphone then play them backward they sound ntohing like it, likewise if you read out the so called ‘satanic’ messages into a microphone, and reverse them, they sound nothing like the real lyrics of the song.So you’re all very blind.I can tell once you’ve read the lyrics your brain automatically thinks that the words posted are what is being said,but that goes without saying, as someone said, if you say yes and play it backward it is Saen saen saen, but if you play satan backward it’s nesyes nesyes.We are all led to believe that there are messages in this, when i was told i was listening to it, i couldn’t believe it.Everything made no sense.my uncle said when he was younger he listened to this song on vinyl and back masked it in the back shed of our house in new zealand, and the shed shook and collapsed.It is still collapsed.The only reason, because we are trying to see what isn’t there.Just get over yourseles. A song is a song.Keep your beliefs to yourself, because making more controversy will not solve something that’s basically impossible to solve anyway.this was played at a funeral of a loved one of mine.Which is where i heard it backmasked by my brother.And nothing happened.Stop being dillusional, and get a life.

  16. since when did people figure this out i got scared when i was listening to stairway to heaven
    i accidentally clicked the backwards version and i got the chills
    i don’t wanna touch none of my Cd’s im to scared who would put such horrid subliminal messages it’s a beautiful song to listen to but backwards is just the worst thank you for revealing the shocking truth to me

  17. This isn’t the power of the devil. It’s not even the power of God. It’s power of the mind, and the suggestion that it has on us all because we, as humans, are not complete. We believe what we want to hear because our minds tweak what we actually hear.

    Yes, I do realize I’m about five years late to the discussion. So sue me.

  18. I know it’s maybe too late to dicuss about it but please read my word i know what am i talkin’ about … hot smart you have to be to make something like this ? I think that Led Zeppelin are genious ‘couse of this … And i think it’s not a satanic messege , think about it , when played ussualy , forward – it’s stairway to heaven … when played backwards – it’s stairway to hell … i think Zeppelin’s want to say that if you going straight and fair you go to heaven (song played forward) , and if you go backwards and you are bad you go to hell (song played backwards) … why would they made hiden satanic messege ?! if they wanted to do a satanic messege they wouldn’t hide it , they want to tell us that good ones go to heaven and bad ones goes to hell !

  19. When i first heard it, i didn’t believe it. But then i decided to do it in home on my PC. I used Cool Edit Pro 2.1 and it really worked. It’s little shocking but it’s true just reverse it and you will see too. It’s not a lie

  20. Just so you know the original lyrics you had posted were right “There was a tool shed where he made us suffer” refers to Aleister Crowleys house Boleskine that Jimmy Page owned it was also known as the tool house. Crowley picked the house out because he thought it matched what was needed to worship satan with its location and being secluded.

  21. this stuff is crazy!!! i think all this stuff ties back to the “ulluminati”.
    i dont excactly understand, how all this stuff works but, i think its interesting

  22. A lot of people think they did it on purpose. But honestly, if Led Zeppelin did something THIS groundbreaking, why would they deny it? If any of you are religious, or not, this could be interesting. The devil (Lucifer: his real name) before kicked out of heaven he was the Angel of Music. When the song was made Page and Plant were sitting outside of Page’s house, what used to be Aleister Crowley’s. Is it too crazy to believe the devil used this song and mixed that message in there? I’m religious, but don’t go around advertising it, but when someone brought this to my attention i found it very insightful.

  23. sorry but to tell you the truth i dont care what the song says backwards…its a great song and i love Led Zeppelin <3

  24. Well let me tell you something people, I am 49 and when I was 18 I had the album of Stairway to Heaven. And a preacher came on tv one day and said that song had a hidden message, this was in the early 80’s when we found out about it it’s not new that it just came out.The illuminati is over the music industries, they are Evil beings . that Song backwards I played it on a record player backwards turned off with my finger very slow and it scared the Holy crap out of me! It sounded like Satan Himself.
    you have to listen real careful or it will not make since. I wish I could remember it to tell all, but I was terrified I took out to the dumpster. we would sing along to our records, but didn’t realize we are singing to Satan. I said the Lords prayer after that.
    Back to illuminati your music today the Pop artist, Look what happened to Micheal Jackson.He tried to tell us and Warn us they were trying to destroy us, Just keep your ears open don’t be ignorant about things in our World, Worship our Lord who created us, he will help us get through this. God Bless. +

  25. Who listens to music backwards in the first place? God spelled backwards is dog. Does that mean that mans best friend is Satan? Who ever came up with the idea that this song or any song has hidden meaning when played backwards is just ludicrous.

  26. Keep in mind that this came up long before the internet was heard of. Believing everything you hear on the internet has nothing to do with it. Backward messages were a common practice back in the vinyl spinning days.

  27. this is the stupidest shit i have ever heard or seen in my life. you all have way too much time on your hands. ZEPPELIN FOREVER LONG LIVE PLANT PAGE JONES AND BONHAM!!

  28. The song was spiritually inspired. It is about the Blessed Virgin Mary..the woman in gold coming to rescue her children and lead them to the stairway of heaven..She is the woman of May. The song reversed is the stairway to hell. The song has a much deeper meaning than what is on the surface. The fork in the road..the wind from the West..the piper being the evil one..It was a songbwritten for our times

  29. “catherine says:

    okay. i think that satin is just trying to get into our heads, and trying to make people worship him by making songs and other things ‘satanic’ backwards. don’t believe it, and don’t listen to it. satin wants us all to belive in him, don’t give him the satisfaction of knowing you are, or you are listening to him. as humans he knows we are stupid. and we are. and he tries his best tp get us all.”

    Oh no! Everyone beware of the silky fabrics, they come for us all. In our sleep, on our cloths, we are all under Satin’s rule.

    I’ve nothing to add to the truthfulness of this that hasn’t already been mentioned in the comments. I will say however, to all those people throwing away their copies because they’ve discovered someone figured there was a satanic message. You loved these records, most of you admit it to being your favourite song until you found this out, so it’s safe to assume you’ve sang along to this song countless times. Most of these same people are self proclaimed Christian practitioners; good, god and mankind loving people (although some of you seem a little hateful towards non Christians to proclaim yourselves devout Christians) so it’s made abundantly clear that this song has had no evil/satanic affect on your beliefs and who you are as person what-so-ever so why are you throwing them away? That’s like reading cars make your fingers fall off so you’re gonna burn your car and never drive again. Your fingers haven’t fallen off simply from driving, no one you knows fingers have fallen off from driving, you have zero proof or evidence to suggest it but you just blindly do anyway? Although I guess you’re all familiar with that concept….

  30. Please sent me the whole backward lyrics of stairway to heaven by Led Zapellin. I would be very grateful if you kindly accept my request

  31. i think it is more than a coincidence ….becauae you “know sometimes words have two meanings” as does this song the toolshed theory is interesting..Crowley was a famous Satanist, probably the most famous self proclaimed one so that’s awful strange he bought his house….my theory is that the backwards version is about cern, the doorway to other dimensions (heaven&hell?) and the search for and collection of dark matter and dark energy… take a look at the cern logo, looks a lot like a 666…also cern scientist (burners lee)invented the internet, in the hebrew alphabet w is the 6th letter so www=666 and which of us is not marked by our beloved internet?
    anyway its all pretty cool and if they do (or did) open a doorway to hell I would want to be the first to peek through..human curiosity and apple eating and all that

  32. The letters of “Bill Gates” also add up to 666 if you add up their Ascii values. I told my dad that and he wondered in the same way you are, “how can that be a coincidence?” We then added up the Ascii values of his name, and wouldn’t you know it, it also added up to 666. It was funny because then he started to think it might just be a coincidence.

  33. Personally, I don’t think it was the intent of Page or Plant to write a satanic song. But Aleister Crowley was known for his ability to speak backwards, among other things, and he was a satanist.

    Okay, I also remember reading a quote by Plant where he said “Something was pushing my pencil across the page” as he was writing it. Automatic writing? So this leads to the question of why, especially if it can’t all be determined what’s actually being said. (Yes, I too heard the “my sweet Satan” part). Theories abound. So here’s mine…

    What would happen if you took one of the most talented guitarists the world has ever known and built an aura around him and his band? Wouldn’t at least some want to know what his interests were? And being that Jimmy and Robert were both into occult things (Page more so), wouldn’t it most likely lead others into learning or wanting to learn these things as well? Satan is all about gaining followers after all.

    I played it backwards on my computer and was amazed when I heard the end of the song. Backwards I could quite clearly hear the phrase “backwards, hear words sung.” This blew me away at the time because I had never heard these words mentioned anywhere else before…so I wasn’t looking for it, though it was there.

    But Santa or Satan or Old Nick or Jolly Old Saint Nick is quite a character now isn’t he! Saint Nick – Satanic! But he thinks we’re all so stupid we can’t see it. It’s called…Hiding in plain sight!
