Brother will kill brother
Spilling blood across the land
Killing for religion
Something I don't understand

Fools like me, who cross the sea
And come to foreign lands
Ask the sheep, for their beliefs
Do you kill on God's command?

A country that's divided
Surely will not stand
My past erased, no more disgrace
No foolish naive stand

The end is near, it's crystal clear
Part of the master plan
Don't look now to Israel
It might be your homelands

Holy wars

Upon my podium, as the
Know it all scholar
Down in my seat of judgement
Gavel's bang, uphold the law
Up on my soapbox, a leader
Out to change the world
Down in my pulpit as the holier
Than-thou-could-be-messenger of God

    General Comment^^
    First Off Hellbound Your A Dumb ass. This is one of the Best songs on Rust In Peace, and Everyone knows it. So unless you can do better, you need to Die.

    Well! Thrashing aside this song is amazing. To me I believe that its about the wars going on in the middle East. Dave Is singing from the perspective of a Muslim warrior, whos family has been killed. Thats What I feel.
