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.
“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!

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

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!!

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

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….

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

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

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.

Hi Jeff,
I don’t mean this disrespectfully but I’m just wondering what method you used to come up with that number. I tried the method most people use which is wrong apparently. The correct way “apparently” is called the Chaldean-Hebrew Kabala Numerical Alphabet. I got this from a book called Linda Goodman Star Signs. It seems pretty accurate to me but make up your own mind, I’ll write it out for you if you like. Another thing it points out is that 666 is actually a positive number. Look up the numbers 3, 6 and 9 in relation to Nickola Tesla, it’s very interesting.
I’m interested in trying your method though if you don’t mind sending it to me. My email address is

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!

Hi Brian,
I’ve noticed the Satan/Santa anagram, I don’t know what you mean by Saint Nick though, but from what I’ve read, it’s permissable to add a letter here and there if it makes sense to you. I’d like to also point out that Christ’s name is literally crossed out in Christmas by changing it to Xmas. Evil and Vile is an anagram of Devil, Haven/ Heaven. Armageddon/God’s Rage, Anger or Mad, Ect. I could go on and on.
If anyone’s fascinated by this, read Linda Goodman’s Star Signs. It has hardly anything to do with star signs though. It’s full of all sorts of interesting stuff

Actually, you don’t have to buy the book. Just google lexigrams, it’s like anigrams but there’s a bit more to it

I have watched hours and hours of documentaries. The evidence is overwhelming that Satan, and his demons (demons are not “his” but they all rebelled against God before Satan tempted Adam and Eve to bite the apple (another strange- but true- fact is, your Apple I-phone, or I-pad, or computer, do you see that it is a symbol of the first sin?) but anyway, the evidence is overwhelming that this world is controlled by Evil. God has His people here, and He has free will to do whatever miracles He wants, but otherwise, evil rules the world. As I said, the evidence is overwhelming.

But as far as Stairway to Heaven is concerned, really it has to do with evil too. Probably almost all music means something backward. Alister Crowley lived over a hundred years ago. He wanted to be called the Beast- a reference to Satan. He told his followers to learn to speak backward. Led Zepplin, the Beatles, many/most/possibly all secular bands worship Satan. They are trying to cause us to curse ourselves by listening to their music.

More evidence that words said forward actually mean things backward, remember when Obama was first running for President (All our presidents are related (don’t believe me, but don’t give me your opinion about it. RESEARCH IT YOURSELVES!!!!!!!!!!!!) they all come from the same family line, and they are all related to the royalty of England). But when Obama was first running for president, remember he caused the people to chant “YES WE CAN!!!!!!”? Say that backward to yourselves. EG. Saying Can backwards sounds a lot like Thank. The whole phrase (which can be heard on youtube) sounds a lot like “Thank You Satan.” Listen to it on youtube, as the blind Americans all worship Satan with Obama.

You know, this is how Jewish Space Lasers, Nazis on the Moon, Leave it the Beaver being about tiny aliens in disguise, and all the rest of them starts. One guy gets a bee in his bonnet, and shouts loud and long enough that people start to believe it must be true.
Common sense says that if Led Zeppelin wanted to sing about the devil, then they would just have sung it. It’s not like everyone was going to jail for believing in and talking about Satan when this came out – if they did then logically, most Christians would have to be parked inside.

The way I remember it, Paige had just bought Alistor Crowleys old house. They wrote the song there, and pretty quickly.
Also if you listen to Obamas speech where he keeps saying, “yes we can”, at some pretty odd spots, that it says backwards, “thank you satan”, and it is wicked because the entire crowd repeats this, over and over. The speech itself doesn’t make much sense.
