"Burn Your Crosses" as written by Joakim Broden, Rikard Sunden and Oskar Montelius....
No use to pray, there's no one listening
I will die anyway
Some say I've killed, some call me Satan
Now my blood must be spilled

I'm sentenced for crimes I did not commit
I'll pay with my blood, is this really it?
Creations of God?
No way!

Burn your crosses, make way for science
Christ has only caused death and violence
Burn your crosses and make way for yourself
Put faith in mother Earth

Don't call his name, don't trust in others
Bishops fighting for fame
Torture in vain, I won't surrender
Purified by pain

Mankind's great mistake was to create god
Creation of man, excuse to spill blood
Creations of God?
No way!

Burn your crosses, make way for science
Christ has only caused death and violence
Burn your crosses and make way for yourself
Put faith in mother Earth

No use to pray, there's no one listening
I will die anyway
Leaving this place, the end is near now
Dying ain't no disgrace

My last night alive has come to an end
Death once I feared, but now it's my friend
Creations of God?
No way!

Burned my crosses, made way for science
Christ will only cause death and violence
Burned my crosses and made way for myself
In mother Earth I trust

Now burn!

    General CommentI don't think it's anti-religion, it's more like saying those who use religion as an excuse to harm the others should be burn along with their twisted religion.
    this world will be better off without them

    General CommentI don't think it's anti-christian, more like anti-religion in total. It's how they use Religion as excuse for this crap that's going on.

    General CommentI don't think this song is anti-Christian.. Looking at it somewhat objectively it appears there is a lot of sarcasm.

    Notice how it says "make way for science" then it says "make way for yourself" he seems to be pointing out how people tend to worship themselves.

    Also note the "put faith in mother earth" which seems to be a reference to paganism. Why would he go on and on about science and then refer to paganism which is just another religion?


    The way I am looking at it is its not just religion really that causes problems. I think its talking about how as long as we put ourselves first then there will always be war and strife.

    Note the part about the bishops. That is a great part of what I'm talking about. Bishops and clergy of the church have exploited religion for their own gain which has caused strife.

    To throw in some more food for thought the part about "purified by pain" is almost a direct reference to Christian martyrdom.

    So it really seems to me this song isn't about *religion* or against one specific thing I think its ultimately about how we always put ourselves first and we will have problems so long as we do.

    General CommentThis appears to be an 'inquisition', but who was the accused? That's the real question.

    General CommentWow this song is extremely anti-christian and anti-spiritual. It would definitely fall in the black metal category of music and definitely spreads the rumors of heavy metal being linked to Satan. I lost respect for Sabaton for creating this song.
