"Another Holy War" as written by Hans-juergen Juergen Kuersch and Andre Olbrich....
I am god
The only one
I will bring back
Freedom to your heart
You won't believe
That blind can see
No one else before me ever knew
The way to paradise
For another bloody crime
I shall return

I am your light on through the night

Why am I born
Will I fail to rise again
Another crucifixion for
Another holy war
Can't stop what's going on
Can't stop what's going on

Sooner or later you must understand
My words bring freedom
And rescue for man
What else,
To call me your Messiah
Oh, I wish there could be another way
Cross and nails are already prepared
My sell out
Waits till I'm crucified
I will die before my vision ends

Why am I born
Will I fail to rise again
Another crucifixion for
Another holy war
Can't stop what's going on
Can't stop what's going on

Wait for the dawn
To take me away
What will be if I fail
Another golden calve
Never, never ending
Pain and agony
Hit me, nail me make me god

    General CommentI think it refers to Jesus himself. On the one hand It's about the things he did and said, and on the other hand it's about his doubts ("Why am I born, will I fail to rise again").

    General CommentYes this is defanatly about Jesus and the proof is the lines "Never Never Ending Pain And Agony, Hit Me Nail Me Make Me God"

    General CommentThis song is, I think, about the doubt that jesus would have about the numerous wars that have been laid in his name.

    "another crucifixion for

    General CommentI definitely think this, and Precious Jerusalem are about Jesus of Nazareth. It speaks of his life and of his death. It talks of his doubts, Judas' betrayal, and I think his views on wars taken in his name.

    I hadn't thought of the Dune aspect, but that is an interesting thought; though not much of the song could be tied with it.

    General Commentthis is one of my favorite blind guardian songs. i guess the song equates the death of a fighter in a holy war to the crucifixtion of christ.

    General CommentActually, I'm fairly sure it's about Frank Herbert's Dune series.

    Jesus proclaimed himself to be the son of God, and never claimed to be God himself.

    However, Paul Atreides (Muad'Dib) becomes the Messiah of the Fremen, goes blind and yet still sees ("You won't believe the blind can see") and then proclaims himself God-Emperor.

    He also leads "another holy war" (the first being supposedly the Butlerian Jihad).

    Of course, the crucifixion parts do point to Christ - I think perhaps the song is a comparison of the Biblically-inspired Dune books and the actual story of Jesus.

    General CommentThis seems to be Jesus's reaction to the Crusades.

    General CommentI also interepreted this song about Jesus. The crucifiction and all that, and isn't there a religon that proclaims Jesus isn't the Son of God but God himself? The only parts that conflict this is "Another holy war". I'm not too sure if Jesus caused a war or at least a conflict.
