For the Greater Good of God Lyrics

Are you a man of peace
Or man of holy war
Too many sides to you
Don't kow wich 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 breath
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 a 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 of 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 it's ashes that are
scattered across the land
And as their 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 (x8)

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 (x8)

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

Mich würde eine konkrete Übersetzung mal interessieren. Wäre toll wenn jemand mal eine machen könnte. Dies hier übersteigt meine Englisch Kenntnisse ein wenig. ;)

Einer der besten Songs überhaupt!
Könnte den Song den ganzen Tag hören!
Geiler Anfang!
Super Text!
Aber Ich glaube 3 Wörter beschreiben es kurz: UP THE IRONS !!!

for the greater good of god ist mit eins der höllen geilsten leider die maiden gemacht haben, nichts gegen die alten klassiker aber der neue stil von maiden ist mal was anderes!
auserdem zeigt der text auch, dass maiden auch in sachen 'glauben' nachdenken können und auch da einen echt guten sinnvollen text schreiben können! :yes

Maiden?! ..
Die Band is wie Wein!
Je älter sie werden, desto besser spielen sie!
For The Greater Good Of God .. is einer von den geilsten songs auf The Matter of Life an Death.
Vor allem Live is der song übelst geil!
