Holy Grail - Hunters And Collectors

Woke up this morning,
From the strangest dream
I was in the biggest army,
The world has ever seen
We were marching as one,
On the road to the holy grail

Started out,
Seeking fortune and glory
It's a short song, but it's a
Hell of a story, when you
Spend your lifetime trying to get
Your hands on the Holy Grail

Bud have you heard of the Great Crusade?
We ran into millions, and nobody got paid
Yeah, we razed four corners of the globe,
For the Holy Grail.

All the locals scattered,
They were hiding in the snow
We were so far from home,
So how were we to know,
There'd be nothing left to plunder
When we stumbled on the Holy Grail?

We were full of beans
But we were dying like flies
And those big black birds,
They were circling in the sky,
And you know what they say, yeah,
Nobody deserves to die.

Oh I,
I've been searching for an easy way
To escape the cold light of day
I've been high, and I've been low
But I've got nowhere else to go
There's nowhere else to go

I followed orders
God knows where I'd be
But I woke up alone,
All my wounds were clean
I'm still here
I'm still a fool for the Holy Grail
Oh yeah,
I'm a fool for the Holy Grail

    I personally think this song was written by a member of the brotherhood called the Priory of Sion of whom, its soldiers(Knights Templar) captured a secret that yielded them riches and wealth. According to the legend that ensues, the Catholic Church ordered for the massacre of these members and soldiers (hence the line in this song: they say nobody deserves to die) the church is equated to the black birds that were killing them yet the Christian faith teaches that death is inappropriate but for God only.
    The secret of the brotherhood was originally called "Sangreal" an ancient term which in modernity came to be called "Holy Grail"
    Basically, this song referred to the massacre of members of that fraternity by orders of Pope Clementine and how the writer has succeeded holding on to the secret. He is sending a message that the secret is safe because he is a fool for the holy grail.
