Holy Wars...The Punishment Due by Megadeth


Brother will kill brother
Spilling blood across the land
Killing for religion
Something I don't understand
Fools like me, who cross the sea
And come to foreign lands
Ask the sheep, for their beliefs
Do you kill on God's command
A country that's divided
Surely will not stand
My past erased, no more disgrace
No (1)______________ naive stand
The end is near, it's (2)______________ clear
Part of the (3)____________ plan
Don't look now to Israel
It might be your homelands
Holy wars

Upon my podium
As the know it all scholar
Down in my seat of judgement
Gavel's bang, uphold the law
Up on my soapbox
A leader out to (4)____________ the world
Down in my (5)____________ as the holier than thou
Could-be (6)__________________ of God

Wage the war on organized crime
Sneak attacks, repel down the rocks
Behind the lines
Some people risk to employ me
Some (7)____________ live to destroy me
Either way (8)________ die...
They die

They (9)____________ my wife, and my baby
With hopes to enslave me
First mistake

Last mistake

Paid by the alliance
To slay all the giants
Next mistake
No more mistakes

Fill the cracks in, with judicial granite
Because I don't say it
Don't mean I ain't, thinkin' it
Next thing you know
They'll take my thoughts away
I know what I said
Now I must scream of the overdose
And the lack of mercy killings
Mercy killings
Mercy killings
Killings
Killings
Killings

Next thing you know
They'll take my thoughts away
