Another tribe, another brother
Torn between his lover and the gun
Another god, another mother
Weeps to justify the damage done

I wonder through the lies and dirt
I wonder, will the meek inherit all the earth?
As truth collides with propaganda
Just another victim on the run

The world outside, all fluff and candor
Seeks to justify the damage done
No wonder, so much pain and hurt
I wonder, will the meek inherit all the earth?

I think there may be, a war in heaven
Paradise beneath the smoking gun
As every saint and small town savior
Race to justify their chosen one

I wonder, as our world collides
I want to reach out there
Across the great divide

    General CommentThis sounds like a stab at what our government has done to other countries. It's a humbling war/torn world, and he's wondering, will the meek really inherit all the earth. I hope Robert Plant isn't going religious, most of the more recent songs are.

    General CommentHe's using religious imagery, probably because its very powerful and meaningful to people. Lots of musicians do that though, and to me it doesn't sound religious here. Sounds like he's saying that religion is causing war. He wants to reach across the divisions being created by religion and propaganda.
