"The Script For My Requiem" as written by and Hans Juergen/olbrich Kuersch....
Hallowed be the fatherland
God he knows
How long I'd been away
From here I did start for a search so
Full of decease
I still hear my cryouts
From the old cellar's inside

Born in the days of medieval
My inner voice
Is always asking why

I came from nowhere
Without a task, without a name
No fear of evil
Fate, so god please lead me through
Forgotten realms
Mysterious dreams
In sunless rooms I'd sworn
I'll finish what I started, once
I'll find my holy grail
In the holy land

Returning of the miracles
It's my own requiem
The jester's tears
They are inside me
Agony's the script for my requiem
Returning of the miracles
It's my own requiem
Is the script already written
Jester's tears I cry
Yes, I cry

I went out of my mind
In desert lands
Insanity's pawn
Out of control
Much too long I've been isolated
From my thoughts
Enclosed by the leader's spell
Bewildered to marc
As a glory knight
And I tried

Still I hear the scream of thousands:
"Crucify, crucify
Take it all
Our gold, our home, our life,
But we didn't kill your Christ!!
Reach out for your holy grail
Enslave us and make us
Your god's sacrifice!!"

Returning of the miracles
It's my own requiem
The jester's tears
They are inside me
Agony's the script for my requiem
Returning of the miracles
It's my own requiem
Is the script already written
Jester's tears I cry
Yes, I cry

Still I'm confused
If I was dreaming
Too late I realized
I'd been another fool
I pay the price

Returning of the miracles
It's my own requiem
The jester's tears
They are inside me
Agony's the script for my requiem
Returning of the miracles
It's my own requiem
Is the script already written
Jester's tears I cry

    General CommentI saw in an interview this song is about a crusader getting home, and recognizing his mistakes. He simply lives the nightmares of war day by day and constantly hears the moans and wails of victims announcing their innocence. One reason for the crusades has been the purpose of clerical people to release the occupied city of Jerusalem from so called heathens and the murders of Christ. That is where these words relate to. So they have nothing to do with Adolf Hitler...

    General Commentits about the crusaders of the medival age. "Born in the days of medieval" I'm sure it isn't Hitler. It's about the slaughter of Istanbul.
    "...I'll find my holy grail
    in the holy land"
    The crusaders were sent to reclaim the holy land, Palestine wich belonged to the Arabs.

    General CommentThis song is about Adolf Hitler, after he was released from prison, and how he rose in the within the government to become a powerful dictator. It also tells of his downfall. The section that begins with "Still I hear the screams of thousands:" refers to the Jewish people during the time of Christ, and those who were murdered during World War II.
