"Jerusalem" as written by Nick Patrick and Richard Cottle....
The highway's screamin', callin' out your name
'Cause every road that you travel on
There's a price to pay
A thousands eyes are starin'
But the blind still lead the blind

[Chorus]
Where will you turn if it all goes wrong and you're on the run
Jerusalem?

You say you walked through the valley
You say you've seen the signs
Echoes call you from a distant age
Or is it in your mind?

Then a thousands souls rise from the sea
Holding up the sun
And an angel cries beware your lies'
It could be the end of it all

[Chorus]

Everybody knows your name, every road leads to anger
Will it always be the same, is there reason to return?

[Chorus]

When an angel cries - Jerusalem
Better watch your lies - Jerusalem
When an angel cries - Jerusalem

    General CommentI agree.

    The entire song is summed up as a warning to those who use the bible to mislead their followers.

    You say you've walked through the valley.

    You say you've seen the signs.

    Then:

    Every road leads to anger...is there reason to return?
