Brother will kill brother
Spilling blood across the land
Killing for religion
Something I don't understand
Fools like me, who cross the sea
And come to foreign lands
Ask the sheep for their beliefs
Do you kill on God's command?

A country that's divided
Surely will not stand
My past erased, no more disgrace
No foolish naïve stand
The end is near, it's crystal clear
Part of the master plan
Don't look now to Israel
It might be your homelands

Holy wars...

Upon my podium, as the know-it-all scholar
Down in my seat of judgement, gavel's bang, uphold the law
Up on my soapbox, a leader out to change the world
Down in my pulpit as the holier-than-thou, could-be messenger of God

Wage the war on organized crime
Sneak attacks, rappel down the rocks
Behind the lines
Some people risk to employ me
Some people live to destroy me
Either way they die... They die!

They killed my wife and my baby
With hopes to enslave me
First mistake... Last mistake!
Paid by the alliance, to slay all the giants
Next mistake... No more mistakes!

Fill the cracks in
With judicial granite
Because I don't say it
Don't mean I ain't thinkin' it
Next thing you know, they'll take my thoughts away
I know what I said
Now I must scream
Of the o-ver-dose
And the lack
Of mercy
Mercy killings
Mercy killings

Next thing you know, they'll take my thoughts away
