LAIBACH : KINGDOM OF GOD, JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR [1996]

Δυο κομμάτια από το άλμπουμ Jesus Christ Superstars που οι “αμφιλεγόμενοι” Σλοβένοι, πρώην Γιουγκοσλάβοι, κυκλοφόρησαν το 1996. Laibach είναι, ως γνωστόν, το γερμανικό όνομα της πρωτεύουσας της χώρας, Λιουμπλιάνα.
Two songs from the album
Jesus Christ Superstars, released in 1996 by the “controversial” Slovens, former Yougoslavs. Laibach, as known, is the German name of their country’s capital, Ljoubljana.

00:00 Kingdom Of God 05:42 Jesus Christ Superstar

On the last day of God’s creation
Blood will flow from stone
Earthquakes will destroy Your nation
And swallow the king’s throne
And flood will follow fire
To wash away the stains
So finally He can rest in peace
Now nothing of man remains
In the kingdom of God
The kingdom of God
Now times was man’s invention
For regulating his ways
But time has lost its meaning
In cities of eternal days
And every city became Sodom
Man bore the mark of Cain
Until God raised atomic fire
Now nothing of man remains
In the kingdom of God
The kingdom of God
Now the last traces fade away
Of His creation gone wrong
Fish return to the river
And whales sing their ocean song
The bears roam in the mountains
And buffaloes roam the plains
Eagles fly in freedom
Now nothing of man remains
In the kingdom of God
The kingdom of God
Let silence be the music
That settles on the Earth
And thunder be the rhythm
That drowns man’s last words
And let melody be the sound
Of the wind and the lashing rain
Blowing away man’s harmonies
Until nothing of him remains
In the kingdom of God
The kingdom of God
So nothing of man remains
In the kingdom of God
The kingdom of God

Every time I look at you
I don’t understand
Why you let the things you did
Get so out of hand
You’d have managed better
If you’d had it planned
Now why’d you choose such a backward time
And such a strange land?
If you’d come today
You could have reached the whole nation
Israel in 4 BC had no mass communication
Don’t you get me wrong
Only want to know
Jesus Christ
Jesus Christ
Who are you? What have you sacrificed?
Jesus Christ
Superstar
Do you think you’re what they say you are?
Jesus Christ
Superstar
Do you think you’re what they say you are?
Tell me what you think
About your friends at the top
Now who d’you think besides yourself
Was the pick of the crop?
Buddah was he where it’s at?
Is he where you are?
Could Muhammmed move a mountain
Or was that just PR?
Did you mean to die like that?
Was that a mistake or
Did you know your messy death
Would be a record breaker?

    Was “Kingdom of God” in the original movie score? I don’t remember it.
