Open Your EYE.. | Reviewer: Aldre | 4/1/13
what see and hear is some of the heavy metal bands like metalica- genesis, megadeth-revelation, DT etc... is revolutionary heavy metal bands.. thats why christianity and other religions always hit them with "good news" because they spil some of the dirt of the "faithful" churchess... that depends in you on how you understand the history with scripture[s] even in revelation in john's vision that christ said in asia minor that all 7 churches are anti-church of anti-christ... the true religion has been swallowed by the evil one's... the true religion is gone in this era of lies...good day loner faith believer like me.. im also a christian but i have no religion ^_^
what is more important | Reviewer: a muslim | 3/11/13
go and do a research about the history from beginning until now so then you gonna discover the true religion that we must follow (Islam) .and we have to fight the peaple who lies to creat a bad things about God and l Islam like the ones who created the (Iluminati) to governe the world and that hapenned when the Islam appeared....... to learn more informations; i advice you to read a series about (the Arrivals )
not about a specific religion | Reviewer: Amr Hamed Osman | 3/9/13
I don't think this is about Christianity,I'm an Egyptian, I was born and raised as a Muslim and I can relate this to what's happening in my country when I see politicians using religion to blind people, I think this song is a general idea about those who use religion to mislead people in order to reach their goals that has nothing to do with religion
Misleading | Reviewer: JINKY ADONA | 11/3/12
This song is eventually misleading to Christian faith.. This song is only Emphasize the four books in BIBLE ( GENESIS, EXUDOS, LEVITECUS, DUETRONOMY )in that ancient time people does't know about MESSIAH.. those time people lived in survival.. they don't have choice but to kill, steal, lust in their very eyes.. because they don't have faith in GOD.. even Moses because of his unfaithfulness did not enter the PROMISE LAND.
All religions do nasty things! | Reviewer: Cl*oud | 10/19/12
When I first read the lyrics of this song my first thought was Christians. I was raised as Christian but I hate this religion. Not religion but Church mostly. I was raised Christian and now when I can use my own head I became an atheist. All religions do nasty stuff around the world, no one is innocent.
What I think | Reviewer: Carlos | 7/6/12
I read a lot of comments, not all ofcourse but, it was all about religions... and this song is not about religion. This song is about god and the violence that creates and implies, this song is a serious claim to the human to be human and live and respect us all and our beliefs.
My best to all,
Carlos Alfaro Robles
In the name of God(s) | Reviewer: Steve | 6/4/12
I can't believe all of the people that interpret this song as a reference to a single religion but I guess I shouldn't be surprised. These are the same people that read a common book then preach hate against anyone that interprets that book in a different way. This song is about the evils of all religions! Killing in the name of god is not reserved for Muslims! What about Christians in the US bombing abortion clinics, or Dubya making comments about doing Gods work while killing thousands of Muslims! Did you all forget the Crusades? There are also references to small cults like the Branch Davidians and possibly Jim Jones in the song. Anyone with an open mind can find references to many religions in these lyrics. All religions are cults and should be abolished
everything & nothing | Reviewer: anonymus | 4/22/12
i see that there are arguments about which religion this song is about..the way i see it is that this song is talking about every religion but neither one religion..every religion has its dark part of the history..and this is what this song is about..speaking about everything and nothing..that is the way i see it
Conclusion based on lots of knowledge | Reviewer: Franck Peter | 2/16/12
Let me clarify:
This song is about Theistic-Abrahamic belief systems which have been abused systematically, by people who have other agendas than what the teachings of Abraham initially was - and what The Lord's message was.
It's in fact not FOR Theism, but contrary, against. This is what i call a "brainwashing" song. It's supposed to make the listener think that they're on his side, and support his ideas. As always, people tend to agree with lyrics of songs, merely based on the fact that it sounds good.
This song IMPLIES that Theism is dangerous. Not that the TEACHINGS (of the Abrahamic kind) are bad, but that it is being abused, and that people cannot be trusted to uphold their doctrines.
I.E: THEISM IS BAD!
The truth of this song | Reviewer: Bob Sagget | 10/7/11
Here's what the song is really talking about! They are the ones who control the world behind the scenes! They try to use religion to keep people seprate hence the age of duality that we live in... Anyways they go by many names but all have a "common idea" New world order and they will twist "any" faith through the weakness of man... I'll start naming them illuminati, freemasons, bilderbergs, trilateral commission just to name a few... And the symbolism of their belief is on the front of the album! look it up! Its the ALL SEEING EYE! And the line saint gone astray with a septor and a gun symbolizes "Ruling with force" Governments kings etc.. and the saint gone astray is Lucifer! Do the research and see what u come up with!
Christian fanatics, not muslim | Reviewer: Poulun | 8/30/11
It is pretty clear to me that this song is quite specifically about radical christian-inspired cults like Branch Davidian (Waco, Texas / David Koresh) and Peoples Temple (Jim Jones).
In the DVD of Dream Theater performing it Live at Budokan, these are also the people/tragedies showing on the video behind the band.
In more general terms I guess this is about how people with a certain mindset can pervert scripture (of any denomination) to suit a self-serving purpose.
In the Name of God | Reviewer: Dream Theater fan | 7/20/11
Hey DT fans, just want to add a post here. The people here who say that this song is about the sins of religious fanatics are probably right. I'm a Christian myself and i used to think that this song talked about radical Islam. However, i just listened to this while reading the lyrics and i'm pretty sure it's actually talking about all religions. About how any religion taken to the extreme can do things that any kind hearted person, regardless of religion, would agree is wrong.
I'm not 100% sure, but i would even go as far as saying that the song is also specifically for Christians, not muslims. Think about it, how many people in the United States alone have done things that are horrible, and claimed to be Christians.
And for those who think that all muslims are bad, just remember there is only a relatively small group of muslims that carry our Jihad. Many muslims just want to live their lives peacefully, especially those in the US. I'm not saying there isn't the danger of Jihadists that come to the US and wait for years to attack. I'm just saying don't generalize the term "radical Muslim" to mean every one out there.
yea. | Reviewer: Behnam | 7/19/11
this is not an atheist song, JP wrote the lyrics, he is an catholic himself, he is just citing the leaders who use religion for corruption... and it's not only for islam you know, some of the parts kinda sounds like David Koresh stuff ...
i think different... | Reviewer: İbrahim Dilek | 6/22/11
i think this song's melody is fantasic but i cant say same thing for the lyrics im sorry. 'cause im moslim guy and this song is like thought of ateist guys i think so im listening this sons every day but i dont care about the lyrics...
The subject of the song is very broad | Reviewer: CJ | 5/13/11
I don't think this song singles out radical perversions of Islam specifically. I think it's more about perversions of religion in general. I see in the lyrics some very specific references to things like Heaven's gate and David Koresh.
Sacrificed sons is definitely about Al Qaeda and the people who carried out the 9-11 attacks but this song is about people taking religion too far in general.
