Inspiration[edit]

Despite claims to the contrary, the album is not a concept album[citation needed], although several songs are based on the last days of Jesus Christ:

  • "The Last Supper", about the last supper of Jesus Christ and the treachery of Judas
  • "Soul Savior", about Christianity
  • "Crucified", about the feeling of Jesus when he was crucified
  • "Divided Cross", about the time when Jesus was crucified and the feelings of the people
  • "Always and Eternally", about the memories and belief that remains after Christ died
