Double Dealing

This song is by David Knopfler and appears on the album Behind the Lines (1985).

There's a murder on the borderline
Torture in the name of peace
No way out from here
Another joker's looking for release
Don't say you love me
In fact don't say nothin' at all
You wanna hear another story?

Another sucker up against the wall
Double dealing in the name of love
Double dealing in the name of peace
A shot rings out in the darkness
No release.

Sanctions from the company
A package coming in from the East
The faithful show no mercy
Agents of a renegade priest
Protection in the name of religion
Protection In the name of the law
Saviours with a sacred mission
Children for their holy wars

Double dealing in the name of love
Double dealing in the name of peace
A lone wolf howls in the darkness
No release.
