Moral laws do not apply
The mind is capable to justify
The madman has come
The madness attacks my mind
Cannot comprehend a purpose in randomness
Where is God? Have you killed him?

Self aware observation
Thousands of years
Finite greatness, finite cruelty
Which is the standard of man without God? Meaningless
Which is the standard of man? No rationale for what exists

The madman has come
The madness attacks my mind
Cannot comprehend a purpose in randomness
Where is God? Have you killed him?

Liberation of no law
Exhilaration of no God
Justified in the mind
Leads to horrors of every kind

What if there was a gun to your head? Would it not matter?
What if there was a gun to your head? No meaning in your death

The madman has come
The madness attacks my mind
Cannot comprehend a purpose in randomness
Where is God? Have you killed him?

    General CommentGreat song. The meaning of this song is, as the title points to, about Fredrick Nietzche who was an atheistic philosopher, famous for the statement "God is dead." because he believed at the time that recent developments in modern science and increasing secularization of European society had effectively 'killed' the Christian God. And obviously, this is LS's rebuttal.
