"False Messiah" as written by and Timo Tapio Tolkki....
Come to me my disciples
Said the stranger who came
Healed the sick fed the poor
Spread the joy and the cure

He will rule our land
With his leading hand
We'll achieve our deliverance
Is it just an illusion
Or the mass confusion
Is it just the work of the False Messiah?

Victims of mass confusion
Fools will follow this man
He leads us to destruction
Tending us to damnation

He will rule.

    My OpinionI agree. And what I find interesting is this line:

    "Fools will follow this man
    He leads us to destruction
    Tending us to damnation"

    How would Jesus lead us to destruction? People who find Jesus change in a positive way. It's this world and it's people who lead us to destruction.

    Nice guys though. Hanged out with the bassplayer 2 weeks ago at a festival where I played with my band, we had a great laugh!

    General CommentI'm a Christian, to say the least. Now that we cleared that out, I DISAGREE with what the two people already said up there.

    Why do we assume that the song is talking about Jesus? Will not the false messiah do exactly what Jesus did?! That is very Biblical! How else is he gonna fool people into following him.

    Why I believe this song is NOT about Jesus is simply because it says that the false messiah will bring destruction, and I FAIL to see the destruction that Jesus did.

    With all due respect to my brothers and sisters in Christ, think BIBLICALLY, FACTUALLY, align things with the Bible and see if they fit exegetically!!!!

    Again, could this not be about the false messiah the Bible tells us about?

    General CommentI think that Stratovarius had some really good metal songs with good messages. This song however, False Messiah, blatently lashes out at Jesus Christ. The sarcasism in this song is ironic because it's the truth in real life: Jesus died for our sins and if we accept His sacrifice, we will recieve eternal life. If you read this today and you don't know if you are going to Heaven when you die, say this prayer and sincerely mean it in your heart:

    "Dear Jesus,
    Thank you for dying on the cross for me
    Forgive me of my sins
    Cleanse me in your blood
    Give me new life in You
    Write my name in the Book of Life
    I Give my life to You
