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 foolish naive stand
The end is near, it's crystal clear
Part of the master 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 change the world
Down in my pulpit as the holier than thou
Could-be messenger of God

Wage the war on organized crime
Sneak attacks, repel down the rocks
Behind the lines
Some people risk to employ me
Some people live to destroy me
Either way they die...
They die

They killed 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

Next thing you know
They'll take my thoughts away
