Figure

from Cunninlynguists (Ft. Tonedeff) – The Gates Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

The figure could be God (portrayed by Deacon the Villain in the following verses) although it isn’t necessarily God. There is the possibility that it is an angel or saint such as Saint Peter (who is often thought of as the “gatekeeper” of Heaven).

Whoever it is, this person/entity/being is the gatekeeper of Heaven
