lyrics

There is endless strife
in the holy land
and death is life
in the holy land
and war is your wife
in the holy land
in the holy land

Your friend is foe
In the holy land
and glee is woe
in the holy land
and yes means no
in the holy land
in the holy land

All the laws are lies
and the saints draw flies
laughter cries
and innocence dies
in the holy land

Trees have no leaves
In the holy land
and priests are thieves
in the holy land
and justice grieves
in the holy land
in the holy land

Every child is old
in the holy land
and love is sold
in the holy land
and lead is gold
in the holy land
in the holy land

All the wise are fools
and the kings are ghouls
guns are tools
and chaos rules
in the holy land

Listen
listen
there is no god but god
the lord is one

They build on sand
In the holy land
permission is banned
in the holy land
your fist is your hand
in the holy land
in the holy land

All the goods are ills
In the holy land
and fire chills
in the holy land
and kindness kills
in the holy land
in the holy land

There is blood in the street
there is no retreat
every triumph is defeat
and the crimes repeat
in the holy land
