Aaaaaaaaahhhhhhh......... 'Tis you! The one who stole the credit of finding the DerRiese server from me. I say this because you did NOT give me credit for finding it first, although I did. Well, anyways, moving on. I did NOT say that tge songs gave NO meaning, I said we do not know wgat they mean, because we do not know whose eyes tgese songs are written through. I am saying that his "Analysis" is probably wrong, because he just randomly threw Richtofen in there. It does not mention Richtofen ANYWHERE, AT ALL, IN ANY WAY. So the fact that he just said, for no reason, that Richtofen is who she is speaking of (With no evidence that that is who she is apeaking of) is annoying. It's like me saying, "Oh, yeah, in 115 she is totally saying that she has a crush on Tank, and she nicknamed him "115". And she is also saying that Richtofen is helping Takeo hold onto his life, and that Nikolai is lossely Christian." It makes no sense, because no evidence is there to support it. That is what I am saying.
Why could it NOT be Richtofen, though? It seems everywhere I go people say it could be Sam and her evil side, Yuri the scientist, or even the players POV, but say that it could in no way be Richtofen. Was he not the one who
1. Made the Wunderwaffe DG-2 and the monkey bomb
2. Worked for the Illuminati, who want to rule the world
3. Aided in the creation of the zombies
4. Killed Samantha and Dr. Maxis
Do you understand what I'm saying? Richtofen's role in the Nazi Zombies storyline is pretty freaking huge. And this whole journey that the four characters are on is basically all Richtofen's doing. This battle between the zombies and the characters revolves around Richtofen and Sam. Richtofen is basically using the other three to fight his battle for him. In other words, Richtofen has quite a load on his conscience right now.
If indeed it is Richtofen (which I think is the best possibility) it's a good step for the storyline because it really develops Richtofen's character. The players POV makes no sense (was that not already in Beauty of Annihilation, which it was their POV), Yuri's POV also doesn't factor in considering how small of a role he had, and Sam good vs Sam bad just doesn't make sense either, because the lyrics don't make sense with a good Sam and a bad Sam. They aren't the same because one would want the survivors to avenge her and stop the zombies, while the other side wants them to die. We know she wants revenge against Richtofen and we know that in Richtofen's mind he needs to stop the zombies and stop Sam.
If you look at that with no regard for the lyrics to Abracadavre, they ARE indeed the same. Forced to kill each other.
The songs interpretations are entirely up to us to find out their meaning. But some are just plain obvious, while others you actually need to analyze and do a little digging. You can't just expect them so explicitly say who's character POV it is.
Lullaby for a Dead Man - This is most likely from Sam's POV. I know that Sam wasn't discovered till Der Riese, but Treyarch is the one that made the storyline and could have had the whole thing planned out right after Nacht Der Untoten became so popular. Also, the singer says "Father, you know how long it's taken me, I live again." Sam lives again.
The One - obviously from the zombies perspective. There's just no one else it could be.
Beauty of Annihilation - The character's POV and the zombies. It's stated in the first few lines, each line being a description of one of the characters, while the screaming parts are the zombies, so it seems to be a struggle between the characters and the zombies.
115 - Samantha's. Come on, the first lyrics are "No one can see me and I've lost all feeling." and "I've lost all form and unity". Sam is likely not a ghost but pure energy, as in the radio on Der Riese, you can hear a teleporter in the background, so her matter form is gone but her energy is still lingering. "I'll stop you from breathing and all your deceiving." Sam is talking about Richtofen, how he betrayed Sam and Dr. Maxis, and the fact that he's hiding his past from the other three.
Won't Back Down - don't really count it, but if I were to guess, JFK's
Abracadavre - already argued
I know this came in late, but better late than never.
