lyrics

Holy Land

Bring they soldiers home
to they mothers and they fathers
to the sisters and they brothers
to they sons and they daughters
to they friends and they lovers

Let's not pretend this is something other
than another rich man's war
Just like every one before

Just like all the reasons why
are always fucking lies
Did you really believe that it would be different this time?

And another mother cries
while another one of my brothers bleed
Don't you know there's no such thing as dying to be free?

No, you didn't for me
Cause when you give your life for war
You always die for some asshole
that ain't worth dying for

Leave them alone
Just come home
Leave this middle eastern holy land

Bring they soldiers home
to they fathers and they mothers
to they brothers and they sons
to they sisters and they daughters
To their lovers and their friends
cause brother, these wars don't ever end
And by the time their done
there will be no liberty left to defend
Cause freedom doesn't come
out of the barrel of a gun
and neither does democracy but guess what?
Slavery does.

Cause it ain't us against them
This is a war waged on us
and everything that we believe
and all the people that we love

And the bigger the lie
the more likely we will believe it
Cause those who don't know history
will be doomed to repeat it

Leave them alone
Just come home
Leave this middle eastern holy land

Just come home

No it ain't worth it soldier
The cost is too high

We don't need to spill anymore of our blood
for your lies

No more
Of our blood
For your lies
