Are you a man of peace, or a man of holy war?
Too many sides to you, don't know which anymore
So many full of life, but also filled with pain
Don't know just how many will live to breathe again

A life that's made to breathe destruction or defense
A mind that's vain, corruption, bad or good intent
A wolf in sheep's clothing, or saintly or sinner
Or some that would believe a holy war winner

They fire off many shots and many parting blows
Their actions beyond the reasoning only God would know
And as He lies in Heaven, or it could be in Hell
I feel he's somewhere here, or looking from below
But I don't know, I don't know

Please tell me now what life is
Please tell me now what love is
Well, tell me now what war is
Again, tell me what life is

More pain and misery in the history of mankind
Sometimes it seems more like the blind leading the blind
It brings upon us more of famine, death and war
You know, religion has a lot to answer for

Please tell me now what life is
Please tell me now what love is
Well, tell me now what war is
Again, tell me what life is

And as they search to find the bodies in the sand
They find its ashes that are scattered across the land
And as the spirits seem to whistle on the wind
A shot is fired somewhere, another war begins

And all because of it, you'd think that we would learn
But still the body count, the city fires burn
Somewhere, there's someone dying in a foreign land
Meanwhile, the world is crying, "stupidity of man"
Tell me why, tell me why

Please tell me now what life is
Please tell me now what love is
Well, tell me now what war is
Again, tell me what life is
Please tell me now what life is
Please tell me now what love is
Well, tell me now what war is
Again, tell me what life is

For the greater good of God
For the greater good of God
For the greater good of God
For the greater good of God
For the greater good of God
For the greater good of God
For the greater good of God
For the greater good of God

Please tell me now what life is
Please tell me now what love is
Well, tell me now what war is
Again, tell me what life is
Please tell me now what life is
Please tell me now what love is
Well, tell me now what war is
Again, tell me what life is

For the greater good of God
For the greater good of God
For the greater good of God
For the greater good of God
For the greater good of God
For the greater good of God
For the greater good of God
For the greater good of God

He gave his life for us, he fell upon the cross
To die for all of those who never mourn his loss
It wasn't meant for us to feel the pain again
Tell me why
Tell me why


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!
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.
Creation of God?
No way!
Burned my crosses, make 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!

Quick, someone play those songs in a church.

But Metallica changed their sound after the black album,cut their hair and became rock and they even made a country song.

Unlike, Iron Maiden who never changed their sound.

Critical of Christianity rather than "religion". They may be drugged out idiots but they are careful not to offend Islamic Jihadists.

Hold the cross up high into the sky
Far above your head
In sacred decadence
In pride and honour
You wear the crucifix
As a shield towards
The bitter consequence
Your sins are not redeemed
By swearing perjury
Your sense of self-esteem
Has miles to go to sanctity
See the spiteful and widening cracks
In the bricks of all their
Picture perfect walls
The hollow grins of their hypocrisy
They rock the basis until
Until it starts to fall
Step inside with your commandments
Bring your holy book
Show me your divinity
To me you're just a sheep
With zippers in the back
Your costume does not fool me

This is folk metal

"Lady Madonna"....Beatles. Not intentionally bigoted I guess but none the less Christians could take offense if the world was ultra sensitive to such things.
