Holy Wars

From the album, Holy Wars (2006)


They're taking me away
Because they didn't like the things I had to say
My thinking's out of line
And so they tell me that salvation can't be mine
Ah-ah 


They're pounding at the door
My brain is frozen, I'm just staring at the floor
With scriptures in their hand (weapons!)
They spread their message all across the godless land
Ah-ah


And they tell me Jesus saves the sinners' souls
But who will save me from his followers' burning coals?
Ah-ah


And they say they're only soldiers fighting in a Holy War
Marching lockstep with their orders from on high.
But how did I become the enemy? I'll never know for sure.
I didn't ask to fight, I didn't ask to die.
Ah-ah


They're taking me away
They shout, "For infidels it's now the Judgment Day!"
My thoughts can't be controlled
And their solution's just too vicious to be told
Ah-ah


They're knocking down the door
Their eyes are empty as they rush across the floor.
With scriptures in their hand (weapons!)
They spread their message all across the heathen land
Ah-ah


And they say, "Praise Allah who lives up on high!"
And they want us all to join him in the sky
Ah-ah


And they say they're only soldiers fighting in a Holy War
Bringing infidels the justice they deserve.
As they rid the world of sinners, they tell me I can be sure
That my blood gives glory to the god they serve.
Ah-ah


And they all just say they're soldiers fighting in their Holy Wars
Bringing heaven down to earth is what they claim.
But the hands of God are bloody, only hatred still endures
And their heaven and their hell look just the same.
And their heaven and their hell look just the same.
Ah-ah
