This song is by Robert Plant and appears on the album Fate of Nations (1993).

Guns death and noise, sand oil and blood
Frontiers drawn on paper, no consideration made for
The poor creature who is living by the grace of God, just giving
He's live on network news, live on network news

Flags, princes, kings, patriotic fools
As freedom lies in twisted heaps whose final breath his soul to keep
Whose greatest foe, the endless sleep whose dying wish to reach next week
A bloody star on the network news, a bloody star on the network news

Oh yeah

Tanks, boats and planes, fire, pain and lies
Environmental terrorists tease propaganda's paper fist
Whose trade is all the truth that fits, who often lies but never sits
But on the fence it's the network news, yes on the fence it's network news

Hallelujah, hallelujah, oil, oil
Hallelujah, hallelujah, oil, oil
Ooh yeah, ooh yeah
Ooh yeah, ooh yeah

The lion and the serpent parade out in the sun, all order flex and gesture
All hail the techno infidel has come with satellite bravado and infra-red texture
Beyond these days in time to come, whose fate is it to measure
Upon these sands such damage done to spoil God's finest treasure

Oh, beyond these days in time to come, whose fate is it to measure
Upon these sands such damage done to spoil God's finest treasure
Hallelujah, hallelujah ... oil oil
Hallelujah, hallelujah ... oil oil

Beyond these days in time to come
Oh, whose fate is it to measure Oh
Beyond these days in time to come Who, oh, who is it to measure, oh
Hallelujah, hallelujah Guns death and noise
Sand oil and blood Guns death and noise
Sand oil and blood
