"The Wolf Covers Its Tracks" as written by and Billy Bragg....
My name it ain't nothing, my age it means less
I'm far from my home, flying o'er the Midwest
And as I look down on some far city lights
I ask God to watch over my family tonight

I'm tired of hearing that God's on the side
Of suicide bombers and jet planes that fly
To drop bombs on civilians to even the score
Where's the god of the children in the rubble that forms?

I believe the self-martyrs at least have a choice
And the vengeful warmongers have the loudest voice
But the innocent victims have no place to hide
When death comes without warning with God on its side

The butcher bird sings, an eye for an eye
And echoes the words the wolf howls to the sky
When they call on their god to justify their attacks
The butcher bird smiles; the wolf covers its tracks.
