"Zion Must Fall" as written by Richard Andreas Sjunnesson, Robin Joergen Sebastian Sjunnesson, Roger Hans Sjunnesson, Karin Axelsson, Roland Ingemar Johansson, John Per Emil Bengtsson, Richard Andreas Sjunnesson, Robin Joergen Sebastian Sjunnesson, Roger Hans Sjunnesson,...
A forsaken threat
God failed to foresee
Crossing forbidden boundaries
They'll siege the key
Brooding in the rift
Where hellfire licks
Thirst for ancient vengeance
The end of their grievance

Marching across the purgatory fields
Wading through the river of Styx
Into the Promised Land
Brutal memories hidden by the sand
The battlefield's in God's command

A FORGOTTEN LEGION IN A LONG LOST LAND
A DREADED SECRET BURIED DEEP IN THE SAND
THIS IS THE OPENING OF PANDORA`S BOX
A STRIKE AGAINST THE TEMPLE WALL
AND NOW ZION MUST FALL...

Millenniums of bloodshed
Scourge this soil
The slopes of this mountain
In our violent coil
Red clouded skies
Pouring burning stones
The end is closing in
The world in painful moans

The end is closing in...

    General Commenti have two theories about this that i have no clue if they are right:

    songs about Armageddon, the final battle between god and satan or w/e

    or about troubles going on int he middle east between muslims vs hebrews (I don't know if it's the right term) and christians.


    then again I could be completely wrong, please feel free to correct me.

    My InterpretationI believe the term Zion has something to do with Jerusalem, which the Jews currently control, but the Christians and Muslims both want control over it as well because each of the Abrahamic faiths has some divine correspondence with the city, I think. Don't quote me on it though.

    About the song, I'd have to agree that it is in reference to the conflict over Jerusalem.

    Millenniums of bloodshed
    Scourge this soil
    The slopes of this mountain
    In our violent coil
    Red clouded skies
    Pouring burning stones
    The end is closing in
    The world in painful moans.

    This likely is describing how for so many years the Abrahamic faiths fought over the land's control, and how though the city is holy it is as if it is cursed (scourged means diseased, so the land is "diseased" with a curse) of bloodshed and violence for its control.

    General CommentThe human city in Matrix is also called Zion. Might the song be about that Zion?

    A forsaken threat
    God failed to foresee
    Crossing forbidden boundaries

    The "threat" being the machines that God couldn't foresee. "crossing forbidden boundaries" - giving the machines intelligence.
