He was born in the past time
To take all our pain
The kingdom of heaven is near

The children of this time
Must die for his arrive
To let all the legends be true

The prophecy said they'll call king of the jews
He is born now to take all...

    The Martyr is about Jesus Christ.

    "He was born in the past time, To take all our pain, The kingdom of heaven's near"

    Jesus was born to take away the pain of Hell and open up the Gates of Heaven.

    "The prophecy said they'll call king of the Jews"

    This refers to Jesus' title.

    "He is born now to take all our sins"

    Jesus died on the cross to save us from our sins.

    "Three kings were searching for this holy child"

    This refers to the three kings that brought Jesus gold, frankincense, and myrrh when he was young.

    "The journey begins, he has to die"

    The journey begins with Jesus' birth and inevitably ends with his crucifixion.

    "Healing the cripples and taking our pain, He came for the sinner"

    Jesus performed many miracles healing the lame and his purpose was to serve all sinners.

    "Disciples are following"

    He had many followers.

    "Jump from the temple and angel will save, Show me that you are the son of our God, Now take my land with my power you get, Rulin' the world of tomorrow, Messiah liar our burning desire, He is the king without a crown, We'll set him to his throne"

    I believe this is the Roman soldiers speaking. They're saying prove you're the son of God and then mock his 'King of the Jews' title by saying where's your crown and here's a throne for you.

    "Give me 30 pieces of silver and I'll be your man, Higher liar the fallen Messiah"

    This is Judas' betrayal of Jesus for thirty pieces of silver.

    "Let us see his agony, The things he done are blasphemy, Mob has lost their joy on toy, So let us kill him fast"

    The crowd wants to put Jesus to death.

    "Now drink my blood for the new testament, This is my body you eat, One of you twelve is the one who betrays, Better that he's never born, Judas you're the chosen one, The world has damned your name"

    Jesus is with his apostles at the Last Supper. He gives them his body and his blood and then reveals knowledge that one of them is a betrayer. The world damned Judas' name because he will always be known for his actions.

    "Begin with a kiss, At a cross it will end"

    Jesus' Passion and death started with the kiss of betrayal and ended with his death on the cross.

    "The tortured Messiah is finding his way, The journey has come to the end"

    He finally died on the cross after all of his suffering.

    "The twelve ones are preaching the words he'd left
    They're changing the way of the world but die for"

    After his death the apostles preach about Jesus and his message. They change the world, but are also persecuted.
