Re: First interpretation of NKS [re: zigbot]  

Thx for those Lyrics Zigbot, ill wait myself until ive even heard the song before i do an interpretation.

Having said that....

I will say this much struck me as plain.

There is a twisted comparison between Jesus and Bin Laden.

"First a horseback bomber
Just a small thin chance
Like seeing Jesus on Dateline "

Jesus riding on horseback into Jerusalem prior to his death is compared to the bomber. "Like seeing Jesus on dateline" is saying Bin Laden public appearances have a messianic impression (Bin Laden with his long beard and penetrating eyes). And the numbers of followers worldwide he is attracting.

"I discovered a star
like the stars in your eyes"

The new killer star is also new testament related (in addition to other relations), Star appeared in the sky over Bethlehem before Jesus Birth. Also he discovered a new star on the Stars and Stripes flag of america. "Like the stars in your eyes" is also a reference to patriotic fanaticism gripping the US post 9/11, this is also a reference to not being able to see clearly, vision clouded, "Stars in your eyes".
