"In the Name of God" as written by and Joakim Broden....
Hide from the public eye, choose to appear when it suits you
Claim you're just, killing woman and children
Fight, when you choose to fight, hide in a cave when you're hunted
Like a beast spawned from hell, utilizing fear

Chosen by God or a coward insane, stand up and show me your face!

Suicidal, in a trance, a religious army
Fight without an uniform and hide in the crowd
Call it holy, call it just, authorized by heaven
Leave your wounded as they die and call it "God's will"

Run, when it's time to pay, fear consequence of your action
Reappear when you're almost forgotten
Dream of a world in peace, yet you cause pain and destruction
Kill your own, a response of your action

Chosen by God or a coward insane, stand up and show me your face!

Suicidal, in a trance, a religious army
Fight without an uniform and hide in the crowd
Call it holy, call it just, authorized by heaven
Leave your wounded as they die and call it "God's will"

Captured in all your lies, fear is in your eyes
Creature who has gone insane, your war is in vain
Trapped in a cage of stone, we'll destroy your home
Consequence of your action

Captured in all your lies, fear is in your eyes
Creature who has gone insane, your war is in vain
Trapped in a cage of stone, we'll destroy your home
Consequence of your action

Chosen by God or a coward insane, stand up and show me your face!

Suicidal, in a trance, a religious army
Fight without an uniform and hide in the crowd
Call it holy, call it just, authorized by heaven
Leave your wounded as they die and call it "God's will"

Suicidal, in a trance, a religious army
Fight without an uniform and hide in the crowd

    General CommentI think this may be specifically about Palestinian suicide bombers.

    The live "Kill your own, a response of your actions," seems to be about the Israeli response to the bombings.

    And the line "Trapped in a cage of stone, we'll destroy your home
    Consequence of your action," seems to be about how Israel has build walls all around Gaza and the Israelis did specifically destroy the homes of the families of suicide bombers.

    General CommentI think the Isreal Gaza idea is a bit of a stretch trapped in a cage of stone.... Consequence of your actions. Seems to me to reffer to Taliban and Al Queda being driven into the caves (literally living in stone) as a consequence of attacking the twin towers. There safe "home" in Afganistan was gone.

    Reappear once you forgotten could refer to the fact that Al Queda had been all but forfotten/ignored by the west since the the bombing of the USS Coal in the 90s.

    Fight without uniforms also suggested alQueda as the US made many references to the fact that they were not prisoners of war and subject to Geneva because they wore no recognizable millitary uniforms and as such were enemy combatants not POWs.

    Any way just my 2 cents
