"Hallowed Ground" as written by and Gordon Gano....
"The profit is a fool, the spirtual man is mad,
For the multitude of thine inequity, and the great hatred."

Everyone's trying to decide,
Where to go when there's no place to hide.
I follow the bombs as they're coming down.
This must have been hallowed ground.

No matter what they decide to have done.
Burn up the clouds, block out the sun.
My hope is in one they can't bring down.
My soul is in hallowed ground.

I see the fear, it's on the rise.
Let's catch the enemy by surprise.
Bury your treasure where it can't be found.
Bury it deep in hallowed ground.

    General CommentThe song actually starts with:

    The profit is a fool, the spirtual man is mad,
    For the multitude of thine inequity, and the great hatred. (Hosea 9:7 - KJV)

    The verse and the song is about retribution for evil done. It is a societal commentary and then a suggestion to put trust in something Higher.
