"Hellfire" as written by and Eberhard Lothar Faber....
Come everybody to the video night
Where the flames of anger burn green and white
Where the sands are hot and the days are long
And we slouch through the desert half a million strong

Prophets waited for a great revelation
While cameras turned to a ghost of a nation
And a price was paid, and a lesson was learned
While the smoke filled the sky and the hellfire burned.

You can shoot your twin brother at the point of a gun
Though he's already damned for the things that he's done
You can take a big stick, draw a line in the sand,
Take an eye for an eye and a hand for a hand

A young boy's dying and his mother is screaming
While up in the palace an old man is dreaming
And the hellfire twists and the hellfire turns
And whichever way you're lookin' the hellfire burns.

Come on down
Come on down
Come on down to the party in the middle of town
Come on down
Come on down
Come on down, down, down, down, down

Smoke on the water, darkness at noon
A snow-white sun and a black monsoon
Write me a letter, send me a wire
I'll feel much better if we stop the hellfire.

Now we got oil in the oceans, and blood on our hands
And madmen still ruling the desert sands
And the great big wheel of history turns
While the smoke fills the sky and the hellfire burns.

Come on down
Come on down
Come on down to the party in the middle of town
Come on down
Come on down
Come on down, down, down, down, down
