  • Realize if you're happy
    Jesus sends you straight to hell

    Israel
    Israel

    And should you dare, enjoy your body
    Here tolls Hades welcome bell
    Israel
    Israel

    You've found a middle course existance
    We're all bones and flesh and shell
    Israel
    Israel

    I can't answer for what armies do
    They are not you
    They are not you
    They are not you

    In other climes they bitch and whine
    Just because you're not like them
    Israel
    Israel

    The sky is dark
    For many others
    They want it dark
    For you as well
    Israel
    Israel

    Earth is just one big asylum
    An explodes a prison cell
    See us squirm in our own damaged spell
    You were born
    As guilty sinners
    Before you stood up right, you fell
    Put the fear of many gods
    In Israel

    Nature gave you
    Every impulse
    Who are virgin priests to tell
    Who, how to love
    How to live
    Israel
    And they who reign, abuse, upon you
    Upon you
    They are jealous of you as well
    Love yourself
    As you should

  • Og from Uttoxeter, UkIt’s just a shame Israel’s buoyant culture is at the expense of the indigenous people. Thought provoking song
